Life Coach. Blogger. Mother of Teens. Former corporate executive and current midlife adventurer.
Hello again! If you were a reader of the original Conscious Family Journal, then I am honored to have you back. If this is all new to you, then Welcome!
I began this blog when my two sons were just hitting puberty... and I was just hitting perimenopause. In the years since, my sons have started dating, learned how to drive, started playing football and are now in their last two years of high school.
During that same period, I became a Certified Professional Coach, co-authored and edited a series of children's books with my father and moved our family back to the land of my birth (Upstate New York.) It has been an adventure, to say the least.
Oh, and I'm still in perimenopause.
As those who have gone before me can doubtless attest, parenting teens is a whole new world. Things that used to work, don't anymore and the things that I used to worry about seem rather mild in the face of looming adulthood.
In my Life Coaching business, I work with parents and professionals who are experiencing many of the same challenges that I face in my own life: How to balance family and career while staying healthy at midlife. How to find purpose and joy in the face of a stressful world. How to thrive.
I have always found that journaling helps me sort out my thoughts, put things in perspective and even dream up (occasionally) a solution or two. Hopefully, that will continue to be the case.
And so, I am back. It should be an interesting ride. Thanks for coming along!
