Your Truth Will Set You Free

My hometown, nestled in the heart of the heartland, is the epitome of small town America. The one where you can leave the keys in your car, your front door unlocked, and send your children to the park. It’s the kind of community that looks out for one another. Unites in times of trouble and distress. People who put their…

What if the ACTION is STILLNESS?

Navigating the last weeks has been interesting … to say the very least! There have been many times that I intended to sit and write my thoughts and insights for all of you, but they change, so quickly! Almost daily! The energies are changing so rapidly! I have tried to maintain a balance of positivity and reasonable paranoia. I have…

The Gift of Simply You

Originally published Dec 2019 in Grief Digest and Sharing Magazine for Share – Pregnancy & Infant Loss Support The hustle and bustle of the Holiday Season is upon us, and it is no new news that our culture and society tends to focus much attention on the gift-giving aspect of Christmas. The stress and pressure of shopping for the perfect…

Ridin’ The Storm Out

Earlier this week as I was driving into work, my favorite classic rock station was playing Ridin’ the Storm Out by REO Speedwagon. I grew up listening to REO, and as I sang along to the radio, it occurred to me that it’s exactly what I do through my work with Simply You … helping others ride through the storms…

When Healing Makes You Sick

Not long ago there was a young woman who was happy and healthy in body, mind, and spirit. (Me – at the ‘young’ age of 45).  All was well. (…pretty well). The future was bright. (On the cusp of a new marriage, a new home, thriving children, and a growing business – I was indeed excited for what was to…

Who’s Writing Your Story?

Over the course of time, humanity has settled for a victim mentality that keeps us in a frame of mind of ‘why do these things always happen to me’, ‘I can’t seem to get a break’, ‘nothing ever goes my way’, and ‘things will never change.’  Ouch!!  Be careful what you wish for, it might just come true! The truth…

What’s Love Got to do with it? … EVERYTHING!

I feel beyond blessed to have recently stumbled across some amazing writings and teachings regarding the power of Love. Yet, on the other hand, I’m quite sure I did not stumble, but that this information was brought to me in order to evolve and shift my own awareness. Love is a word that gets tossed around loosely in our human…

Memoirs of a Butterfly

“I want to be like a caterpillar.  Eat a lot.  Sleep for a while.  Wake up beautiful.” That quote you just read – it’s hogwash. I recently saw it on social media and literally gasped aloud as I thought to myself … ‘Are you kidding me?! Be careful what you wish for!’  The process of becoming a butterfly is not…

Are You Listening?

The rhythm of synchronicity is a gentle undertone that ebbs and flows throughout our existence. It is a powerful reminder that spirit is always with us to guide, support, and encourage. It speaks messages that you know beyond any doubt were divinely meant for you.  It’s that ‘you know that you know that you know’ feeling which requires no justification…

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Our inner most cycles are always in perfect synchronicity with the seasons. We are now in the thrust of Spring – the season for planting. As we prepare our earth to grow and bloom the beautiful array of flowers to feast upon our eyes and plentiful baskets of fruits and vegetables to nourish our bodies, take time to reflect on…

To Heal or Not to Heal

Let me start by expressing a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me in developing my work through Simply You!  I have spent much time reflecting on what that has been thus far, along with my own personal journey that lead me here to begin with. This is what I have discovered…. Healing happens every day.  Moment to…
