I’m a social scientist who helps people break out of the invisible traps and make whole-life changes easily and naturally.
It’s 10 am. I haven’t showered in I don’t know when, deliverables are due, my team waits for me to text back… I have tried and failed to order groceries, made breakfast, done dishes, partially homeschooled the kids, attempted to check email (until I was interrupted), took a client call from the bathroom (the only quiet place) and washed muddy puppy paw prints off the floor. Sound familiar?
Self-forgiveness. Total chaos.
My new 2020 routine is skip my shower, meditate when I can, or just focus on breathing through my bandana while disinfecting my groceries.
It’s all good. This change is allowed.
And it’s allowed to feel challenging.
It certainly has to me.
I allow it. I breathe, I freak out, I show up and support myself and my family and my clients, and I do my best to relish and enjoy each moment… praying for those who need it.
Are the challenges you are currently facing beginning to open up new creative opportunities for you? Get curious…
Personally, I scrapped most of my plans. My podcast Allowed got totally reworked to be super timely. The result is raw and real. Three conversations hiding nothing (plus, videos of each conversation being recorded).

Consider listening and sharing.
Take some time to reconnect. Feel un-judged.
Remember your own amazingness and see the leadership in your daily life again.
We are doing just fine the way we are. We are in this together.
Stay healthy. Here’s to creative chaos.
