From Mold Illness to Mindfully Healed, Part III: Recovery

This topic is the thread that tied the last decade of my life together. The more noise those of us affected can create, the more unwitting victims can be helped.

The increasingly common, and often hidden toxin has been underestimated for far too long. Relegated to a mere nuisance for those with overt allergies or sensitivities, mold lurking in the basement, behind paint and baseboards, in AC ducts, and under carpets may be wreaking more havoc on your health than you realize.

Laid-back, who me?

Last weekend my extremely laid back, fun-loving, ever-present good friend sensed my left-brain logic kicking up in the midst of our conversation. I couldn't help it.

The problem with being busy

Modern day society values hard work. Most of us are brought up to believe that success can only arise out of blood, sweat and tears. That’s how we can become the best versions of ourselves. That’s how we can accomplish greatness. That’s how we can be happy.

What do we actually give up for our health?

Like many you I felt that I had given up so much in my life in an effort to heal. 

I gave up gluten, dairy and a laundry list of other foods in an effort to heal my gut. 
I made this mean that I had given up on enjoying restaurant meals and social events with friends. 

I gave up my high paced career when my energy was no longer available to sustain this lifestyle. 
I made this mean that I wasn't really the accomplished woman with whom I had so strongly identified for decades.

The topic of leadership has been bouncing around in my head ever since my son confessed his fears about being an effective leader for the new, younger boy scouts this weekend... As we talked through his dilemma I couldn’t help but think about how we all face a similar struggle every moment of every day as we choose how to be the best leader for our inner worlds, our most significant leadership role...

Can You Hear Your Inner Wisdom?

Picture yourself waiting for an elevator late at night, all alone in a quiet building. You push the button and search inside your bag for your keys as your mind wanders through any number of busy thoughts. Suddenly the elevator door opens and you're startled to see a strange man, who for some reason, makes you afraid...
