Sometimes, Putting one Foot in Front of the Other is the Hardest Part Whether you are 18 or 80, you can be faced with a moment when you need to re-invent yourself like Danita did. Our childhood experience, environment and circumstances can have us erroneously believing that making a big change is too difficult, scary or we just don’t deserve it. So, what are the barriers to taking action towards the new you? For me, the hardest part is the first step. Ever get the feeling that you must jump into the frying pan with both feet. That’s a pretty scary feeling for me. Who wants to get burned? But, …

I write and write until it’s all out of me and …

I could tell you a million personal stories, but I want to keep …

No, I am not talking about the change in between the couch cushions.  No, I am not talking about changing your hair color or losing weight. No, I am not talking about just changing your wardrobe. How about changing the course your life is taking?  You wake up each day and look at yourself in the mirror. Well, I know I do. Who are you looking at? Are you looking at a victim or a survivor? Are you looking at your father’s/mother’s/society’s version of you? OR Are you looking at a woman who knows who she is and what her passions are? I sure …
