Is there a right way to live your life?

As a certified coach I spend a lot of time reading, researching, and considering the meaning of life with my clients. Is there a better way to live? What does happiness really mean? And how do we reach the end of life and be at peace with the life that we have lived?

Menopause is a transition that all women eventually go through, but it affects some of us more drastically than others. Some women suffer severe side effects, while others experience a slower and smoother transition.

Where are you running to?

When I recently called my good friend Sandra to wish her a happy birthday, she said: “It seems like we are always running and, as I get older, I have started to ask myself what are we running towards or maybe running from?” These are such important questions — and the basis for what I want to write about today.

In our western culture it seems that we place a high value on being ”busy.” Running around to accomplish our to-do lists has become the acceptable norm.
