Three Directions Every Purposeful Journey Needs

“The Stream”

Imagine a journey with no packing, no airport security, and no overtired-yet-astonishingly-loud children. Sounds easy, but this type of travel’s tough stuff. In fact, this journey of self-development challenges our strength as we discover who we are and what we’re meant to do.

It’s traveling inward, outward, and back home again.

Kinda sounds like we’re going in a circle, right?

Sort of, but this is no simple circle. Where we start and end may be the same, but are we the same? Luckily, nature recently provided me the perfect explanation . . . and it begins at a beach in Cape Cod. Read more

Thirty-Nine and Right on Time

Right on time…

Have you ever felt like you’re out of time?

And not “Half of my to-do list didn’t get done today.” Instead, I’m talking big-picture out of time.

I keep this card in the zipper pocket of my carry-on bag and read it at least once as I’m packing. Why? Read more

Journey vs. Path: Five Guidelines for Living Without a Master Plan

In life, are you on a journey or a path?

“Meant To Be” (Found this Monday in the grocery store sale bin!)

While the latter is a course that’s been set in its entirety (a master plan), a journey asks you to draw the map as you go. A path is well-trodden; a journey well hidden. Both take you to a destination, but one keeps the identity a surprise.

Me? I’m a journey girl, even in business. A young woman at a recent event asked me about my plans for We Bold Souls. My answer was something like, “Continue presenting my programs and see where that leads.” Definitely not the stuff of business plans.

I operate this way because I love staying open to possibilities and seeing things develop organically. And because I believe there’s already a perfect path for me, ready to unfold as long as I don’t get in its way with my idea of the perfect path.

But even on journeys there are guidelines, so if you’re thinking of veering toward the tall grass, you’ll need to know the following: Read more
