Finally, we come to Ruiz’s Fourth Agreement – Always Do Your Best.  This is the Agreement that most changed my life and really set me free. 

Not only does my personality naturally lend itself to high expectations and perfectionism, but I also come from a religious...

As I continue re-reading The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz, I’m reminded how insecure humans are as a species. 

"We have millions of questions that need answers because there are so many things that the reasoning mind cannot explain…We have the need to justify ever...

I’ve been re-reading Don Miguel Ruiz’s The Four Agreements for the nth time.  I love this book and all of his books! 

I recently reviewed the second agreement:  Don’t take anything personally.  This paragraph really hit home with me:

When you’re starting to feel a little bit enlightened and beginning to see what it’s like to live an authentic existence yet are wise enough to realize that it’s a continual process.  When you have enough peace in your soul to exist in a happy plane most of the time, y...

I’ve always been a fan of strong in...

This morning as I was showering (yes, I think of lots of cool things in the shower*), I was pondering why women tend to be incredibly judgmental of one another.  I believe it’s because we are programmed by society to be “perfect” (perfectly pretty, perfectly fit, perfe...

If I’m being completely honest, I need to tell you that I procrastinated writing this.  I have my reasons, but we’ll chat about that later. 


Let’s begin with a question:  Why is procrastination viewed in such a negative light and considered such an unfavorab...

I just finished reading Deepak Chopra’s book The Soul of Leadership.  I wish I could pinpoint exactly why his teachings resonate so deeply with me but, really, it’s not important why, it’s only important that they do.  I gleaned so many insightful gems but this one sho...
