One of the greatest gifts of this year for me has been learning in a whole new way to receive. If you are someone (like many of us!) who finds it more natural to give than to receive, I get it!  It’s easy to feel guilty when we receive generous gifts of time, attention, and all…

It’s Olympics time again —  I always enjoy sharing the excitement with the rest of the world! We can learn a lot about what it takes to be successful from watching the stories about how these athletes got to this level, and then watching them actually “do their work” during the next 2 weeks. I…
