Day Six – UN-happy anniversary

November 7, 2008

Today, I am the clutter to be cleared. After less than a week of working with “Soul Coaching”, the truth about my marriage is on the table, and from my husband’s perspective, I need to go. So of course the good news is that I don’t have to walk through my life with a vague [...]

Day One minus two

October 31, 2008

Tomorrow begins my foray into NaBloPoMo combined with The Next Chapter–a blog book group. The book of the month is “Soul Coaching” which at first glance borders upon some of my verboten territory: woo woo self-help. But the opportunities and notions to do this presented themselves to me in undeniable fashion, and you know how [...]
