My SPARK Blog

Here I’ll share my life experiences as I explore strengths in myself and others, and what lights me up. My intention is to inspire you by sharing stories that hopefully will inspire and connect you to new possibilities, or if nothing else a different point of view. I’ll share the tools that I use to continually SIMPLIFY. BE. CREATE. an ever-evolving life that is fun, with full self-expression and kindness inside + out.

The POV’s expressed on this site are mine, inspired my interpretations and/or experiences of the CliftonStrengths® Signature Themes, Access Consciousness® tools, teachings of Jennifer Butler Living Colors, and life in general. Click on the links for more information.

Turning Talents into Strengths

Today I'm super stoked to announce the launch of a new collaborative book, written with a dozen other Gallup-certified Strengths Coaches! Inside, we tell our stories of how our lives have been changed, and how coaching conversations have changed the lives of others....

Got talents or strengths?

Yes, you do have tons of talents and some may have developed into strengths*. I'm talking about your wiring, independent of education, skills and other types of talents like sport or art, I'm talking about how you view life, your perspective, say what? Your...

Have you ever wondered

... what you would create if you tapped into even a fraction of the full potential of who you are? That is how I feel about strengths coaching. While I embarked in a slightly new direction as an independent Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach in 2016, it compliments all...

Why Strengths?

What makes the Clifton StrengthsFinder® so awesome from my perspective is that it not only empowers you, it teaches you to embrace and look at other people through the lens of their unique gifts. And while this assessment is not about what you do or necessarily be,...

Welcome to my website!

Hey, I'm so happy that you found me! 🙂 Have you ever wondered what you could create if you tapped into even a fraction of the full potential of who you are? That is how I feel about strengths and coaching. While I'm embarking on a new path as an independent...

The Gift of You Photography

Have you ever had professional photographs taken of yourself? Where the lighting is optimal, makeup & hair is included and worked with a photographer that you really click with? Would that be fun for you? While I love taking pictures of others myself I have been...

Stepping up

Have you ever experienced an internal demand to just step up and take an action and then you still choose not to? You know that inner knowing of actions that your body or being really would be happy with? It could be that you simply do not even know what action to...

Nature in New York City

Ah, trees, lots of them providing so much space to everyone in, the oasis called Central Park truly how does it get any better? I love how you can find so much solitude even on a densely populated place like Manhattan. So many parks are spread all over the...

The speed of space

Have you ever asked yourself what it would be like to function from the "speed of space"? In an earlier post, I mentioned "being space" which for me is "step 1" and where mind chatter is absent. When you stay in that space and start functioning from it you may...

Being an Invitation for Receiving

What if money is more about our willingness of receiving than anything else? In other words who are we being around money? What if receiving a new lover, friend, discounts, freebies, new possibilities were also seen as "money"? What energy are you being an invitation...

Manipulation

What comes up when you hear the word "manipulation"? Do you think of something disempowering or some sort of chiropractic body adjustment? What if manipulation could be a playful and joyful energy that expands the reality of all people involved and where both are left...

Potency

A couple of years ago I was looking at what had me create what I had created to date, the game changer events especially. I realized that what I had started concluding "it must be hidden anger fueling me into action", was in fact "potency" ("the power to influence...

The Space of Gratitude and Receiving

Do you ask for what you desire to experience? Out loud? In your head? On paper? In prayer? Do you tune into the energy that we are all connected to, whatever you may call it, and make requests? Requests that are expansive (heart-based) like “love” or as I like to...

Do you laugh at yourself often?

I do, every time I find myself getting hooked on anything significant - busted! - and I choose laughter and joy the next moment! "Life is too short - gotta laugh" is my philosophy. After all, you feel a lot better when you do, so why not? Surrounding...

Being space

What does that even mean you may wonder? When you are in nature, on the beach, with your pet(s) and/or feeling yummy in general are you being space? Are your barriers up or down? Are you approachable in a different way? Are you open to receiving in a different way?...

Dominant Space

What is the dominant energy in the space around you? The people you hang with? Work with? Neighbors/ neighborhood? Is it an energy that contributes to you, and the life you wish to create? What comes to mind for you if I say "this person has a dominant...
