I'm only dating to entertain you at this point

So you’re welcome. As previously discussed, your girl here likes being in a relationship. Just how I roll. But I don’t need one. I’m ok with work, family and friends, as well as focusing on personal growth <— that one in particular everyone should focus on (that’s the bridge to my dating stories as if I needed to point that out)…

Have you ever gone on a date where you stand up, pat them on the head and say, “good luck” and walk out? No? Well… let’s talk about last night then shall we?

The Empowered Woman...what does that look like?

My new service is called “The Empowered Woman”.

“It’s time to get realigned with authenticity and own the power of your visibility.”

“It’s time to get realigned with authenticity and own the power of your visibility.”

Sounds powerful, no? WELL IT IS. But what does it mean and what will it look like for you? First let’s look at the word “empowered”.

Grab an eraser…

Honestly, I’ve never been better. My business is going great, I’m learning more about how to be the best coach for others I can be, my kids are all doing well at the moment, I’m working out and feel great. But, oh hey there brain, why so complicated?

Woooo Video 4 of 4!

Just in under the wire. Been a long ass week and just wrapping up a pretty good weekend! I had an experience this week that threw me for a loop. It’s all good now. Just sharing because I know we all encounter experiences in life we weren’t prepared for and this week I had one! But I also met some other amazing people throughout the week who have brought big smiles so, #grateful.

TL/DR: emotions and vulnerability are icky but I’ll get there.

I’ve been told that I should be more vulnerable and show my sweet side to people more often. First of all, no. Second, ok well maybe. I’ll start with being vulnerable by explaining that I was just told this by the same person who lit-trully (but figuratively) broke my heart. I want to say that this was said from a place of caring and with the best of intentions…not realizing how brutal it was to hear from him considering I was completely vulnerable with him and here we were saying goodbye forever (what did you learn, Kris? Oh not to ever be vulnerable again? Oops!) Yeah yeah I’m still wounded four months later, but oh so close to using this as a “growth” moment (yaaay growing).

Oh shit... Video 3 of 4 is here y'all

This past weekend I was in Boston for my continuing coach training with Co-Active Training (CTI). I was challenged by Milne, one of the wonderful instructors, to create a video speaking to women that I want to reach to live their best lives and realize how powerful and how “enough” they are, right now.

Welcome Video 2 of 4... in ASL!

Here I introduce myself to the Deaf Community. I apologize to you all for my very weak ASL skills. But the point is, I can communicate and hopefully help other parents who need my support as they step into their new roles as the mom or dad of a transgender or gender non-conforming child!

Dating, Distance & Deficiency?

Strap in… this is a bit of a roller coaster ride of a brain dump.

Let’s revisit the dating world of old people, shall we? To qualify “old”… I’m old. And I’m not exactly thrilled to be back here but hey, what’s life without a little unexpected misery.

Me... a life coach? I know, scary. But hear me out...

As you may or may not know, I am the mother of a transgender child. This alone doesn’t qualify me to coach other women in the same situation. However, we’ve been there and done so much of that and I’ve been quietly offering guidance and coaching to other moms for years now. I’m an “Ally Mom” (See what that’s all about HERE) which means I’m on a national database where people in need of resources, information or just to hear “you’re ok” can call or text me and have a conversation or two. What an amazingly gratifying experience to be able to assist a child in crisis or a parent who just needs to know they’re not alone!

Yesterday I misgendered a dog...

Yes… I misgendered a dog. And I actually felt bad for a moment. You know that feeling right after you say, “Aw, what’s his name?” and the owner scoffs and says, “HER name is…” In my defense, the dog was little and was wearing a full size sweater that covered most of it’s body. Not to mention, I didn’t want to look at it’s genitals anyway.

What to do when sucking at something is so easy.

I need to talk about my anxiety around my own dumbassery. I've talked about comparison being the thief of joy and yet I let myself go there this morning. Stupid Facebook and everyone being all, "Look at all the money I'm making being productive and shit."

{TL/DR: I have sucked, sucking is fun, I'm going to try to suck less. loveyabye}
