"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious, it is the true source of art, science, and friendship." - Albert Einstien


I'm in control 

But I'm not

I have my choices
My choice to think
My choice to speak
My choice to move
My choice to interpret my world
I can tell you how i feel
I can attempt to convince you with words
I can try to physically move you
I can even ask you to take on my world interpretation
In the end though
You have your choices
To think
To speak
To move
And interpret
So I have control
Some anyway
In my own choices
But no control
Over you
Unless you give it
And less control over the world

So here we are
Not in control
But wanting it
Because we need love
And if we can't make it happen
How will we ever get love?

We wait for it
We ask those we love for it without demanding it
We move into spaces of possible love
We believe that love is waiting for us
And we realize
We are not in control of it

Coaching addresses the whole person. The whole complicated, impossible to put in a box, person.  

Poetry is the same way. It has structure but it dives deep into our hearts and finds its way to the core messages we tell ourselves.

On the blog, there are poems about being a dog, defining coaching, learning to rest, finding a new perspective, and several about just being yourself!

We'd love to hear your commentary about our poetry.

From the Blog: Perception is Everything...Umm Not Really

So, Canal Street. If you don't know about it, you haven't done much shopping in New York City. If you have, you know exactly what types of watches, purses, and electronics are available here. All fake, all illegal, but some of them very convincing fakes.

Here's the problem though—once you buy it—you know it's fake. You know that when you walk into a room with your gorgeous Prada or stylish Rolex, you are really only wearing $50 worth of merchandise—not the $5000 that the real thing might cost.

Do you get the same satisfaction that you would have gotten by the compliments and noticings that might go on? Do you feel happy about your wealth? Do you feel like you belong with the other people in the room with actual Rolexes? Read more here!

How's That Working For You?

We tend to do the same things over and over again in our lives expecting different results. We chase the dreams of our 20s only to find in our 40s that none of those things really mattered. What we really wanted was a life of joy. A life of friendship. A life of adventure.

Instead, we find ourselves living for someone else's idea of a perfect life.

Try coaching.
