Question of the Day: “Is it okay if I am not Wonder Woman?”

Many years ago, my husband bought me a key chain with the WonderWoman logo on it. I have always loved Wonder Woman. I wore her underoos as a kid. The most recent movies are good, but my heart will always be with Lynda Carter and the series from the 70s. I fell in love with…

Question of the Day: “What does it feel like when I do a reading of a person who is in denial?”

The people I read always give me permission to read them. Most of the time, they are not sure what to expect. Almost all of them end up crying. I often end up crying. Sadness is such a powerful emotion, and many people go out of their way to not feel their sadness. They bury…

Question of the Day: “Does anyone else have really weird dreams???”

I once read that dreams are our subconscious mind playing with itself when our conscious minds are resting. Though I am not entirely sure if this is true, I do know I have very weird dreams, and I really want to know if other people have dreams like the one I am about to describe.…

Question of the Day: “What lessons did I learn from my son on our nightly run?”

My son and I have been running nightly for the last week. He’s much faster than I am, so we walk to our starting spot and then he takes off. I jog casually behind him until he is done. After he runs his distance at his own pace, he turns around to meet me and…

Question of the Day: “How do I even know I am an empath?”

My husband is my biggest skeptic. He believes I have an uncanny and amazing ability to read people and pick up the often imperceptible thoughts and feelings of others, but he refuses to believe there is anything special about that. “You are incredibly perceptive, Kelly,” he retorts. “But to date, you have not done anything…

Question of the Day: “What lessons have I learned from this year’s garden?”

I have wanted a large garden for years. My obsession with plants started at a very young age. It all started the day my mom bought me an African violet when I was only five years old. My diligence while taking care of the plant was unwavering. I watched it and watered it and loved…

Question of the Day: “How can I stay connected?”

This summer, I opted to teach for the ESY program. For those of you who are not in education, this means Extended School Year. I only have a handful of students, but they are students who do not like school, tend to do poorly in school, and have no interest in doing work even during…

“For Everything There is a Season. A Time for Every Activity Under Heaven…Turn”

I am not a religious person. The best way to describe me is “spiritual” but I also just really love words. So it is not shocking that I love Ecclesiastes 3. I first heard it at my grandfather’s funeral, but then I recognized the words from a song by the Byrds. Set to music the…

Question of the Day: “What happens when we just tell each other the truth?”

The truth is such a touchy subject. We all want it from others, but when it comes to speaking our truth, what happens? I watch as friends, family, colleagues lie about how they really feel, and then they get upset or even angry when people act in certain ways because they believe the lie they’ve…

Question of the Day: “Why am I in such a terrible, horrible mood?”

My day is being rocked by my inability to stay grounded. If last week was a unladen trip through establishing “joy” in my day and in my career, then today feels like a field filled with landmines. Everywhere I turn, I can only see things that irritate me. My students are driving me crazy, though…
