The Blog

As Featured In  Thrive Global

 

When you have your own website, you get your own blog! Sharing and writing are second nature for me, sometimes to a fault. But after 52 years, I’ve got lots to say. So sit down and join me in sharing some of the humorous, embarrassing, thoughtful, frightening, sad, joyful and a’ha! moments of my life…..xo Karm 

When Conflict Brings Clarity

When Conflict Brings Clarity

None of us like conflict, or knowing someone is angry at us. It’s our nature to be in harmony and “connected” to others. People may say, “I don’t care if they’re mad at me, that’s their problem”, but the heart truly doesn’t rest until the conflict is resolved. The...

My Kitchen Floor

My Kitchen Floor

Pandemic Problems

Pandemic Problems

Do you ever feel guilty for keeping on with life when there is so much darkness and unfairness in the world, or in the middle of a personal or family crisis, or maybe even during a pandemic?  I remember when we first went on lockdown in late March of 2020, and it...
