Do I Contradict Myself?

Do I Contradict Myself?

I think I just might be the most anti-social extrovert there ever was. As much as I love to be around people, and am totally energized in groups, at events and parties and whatnot, I never feel “open” to talking to strangers in coffee shops, on airplanes, […]

Enough is enough. You are enough.

Enough is enough. You are enough.

As the fifteen women shuffled in, nervously, awkwardly, some excitedly, some quietly, some chattering, hugging. Shifting into seats, we took some minutes to settle into the room and the circle before beginning our workshop. I began by passing out blank sheets of paper and asking each woman […]

I Got My Feelings Hurt

I Got My Feelings Hurt

It happens to all of us. It happened to me. I had planned a home party for a line of adult products, and invited pretty much every DFW woman I thought might be interested– 300+ to be exact. I created this picture in my mind of what […]

The Old You, the Now You, the New You? All YOU.

She’s Been Everybody Else’s Girl

“From the shadow, she crawls. And in the shadow, she finds her way… She’s been everybody else’s girl. Maybe one day, she’ll be her own.” – Tori Amos, “Girl” I’ve been noticing a trend that’s common with many of the women that are attracted to the work […]

Mean-Spirited Roadhouses and Other Detours

Mean-Spirited Roadhouses and Other Detours

A personal favorite of mine, that I feel guided to re-post. I hope it reaches the heart of whoever might need it most. “Gamble everything for love, if you’re a true human being. If not, leave this gathering. Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty.   You set out […]

My name is Lisa and I’m in a Shitty Mood

My name is Lisa and I'm in a Shitty Mood

Perhaps there are some people that prefer a crappy mood over a joyful one. I am not one of them. I woke up this morning in a god-awful crappy mood. I was physically sore and achey. Low back pain, hip and sciatica called out “Morning!” as I […]
