Ahhhh. The possibilities AND pressure of a brand new year. Personally, I’m hoping to focus more on the possibilities and much less on the pressure.
My holiday proclamation for all:
Let there be light!
May you lift above the hustle and bustle to truly enjoy what is most meaningful for YOU this season.
A very brief moment of reflection as I get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving.

I’m working with many clients lately on their impact. At work. At home. At large. For better or worse, we have impact.
Well, I feel like a Big Girl this week. After 10 years of avoiding email marketing software, I have made the leap. The avoidance came from a variety of worries – “it probably will be a pain to use, I don’t want to feel like I am going corporate, what if people don’t like it and I have mass unsubscribes?!” Basically, I didn’t want to make the commitment.

One of my intentions for 2012 is to be powered by inspiration. I am tired of pushing, striving, trying. It’s ever so much easier to be pulled, inexorably, by what inspires you.
Last week my six year old inevitably asked me if I thought that Santa Claus was real. We had watched the Polar Express recently with its theme of ‘believe or not to believe’ and his buddies have been spreading rumors about the big man in the red suit. I looked down at him and with a deep breath said, “Yes, yes I do.”
