Interdependence Day

As we prepare to celebrate Independence Day here in the US, I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of independence and how central it is to our culture and identities. We’re raised as modern women to be independent, and I’ve always worn my independence with pride and honor.

Belonging Does Not Require Conforming: Lessons of Pride

June is Pride month, a month for the LGBTQ community to celebrate the often heroic courage it requires to express and share your true, authentic self with the world. It’s a great reminder for everyone, particularly those of us who operate from a space of privilege & freedom of self-expression

It doesn’t start at commitment, it starts at recommitment

I speak with driven, ambitious women all day who long for more, but are often afraid to admit it because they’re stuck somewhere between guilt and gratitude. Taking care of others and making time for themselves; doing what others expect and living from their values; speaking others truth and speaking their own. Sound familiar?

Psst...we've been up to something big...

Last year, I gave my business card to a potential client, and I felt a twinge as the words “Conscious Working Mama” left my mouth. Where once I owned my company name with ease and pride, it felt restrictive, awkward, and no longer an expression of me.

6 lessons from the 2018 Olympics to help you live up to your potential

I love the Olympics, and this winter Olympics in Korea did not disappoint. I was amazed, inspired, moved, and motivated. In the past, I felt like I would lose two weeks of productivity because I would get sucked in to watching every night, and then once they were over it was a bit like I lost two weeks of my life.

What a year for women AND where do you go from here?

This time last year, I joined 750,000 other women (and men) in the streets of Los Angeles to come together in womanhood, in solidarity with groups who felt threatened by the incoming government. It was thrilling to be part of such a large expression of collective voice.

Moving from Reflection to Creation

I recently wrote about the power of reflecting on 2017 as a foundation for 2018 goal-setting. I find this process so powerful partly because of the inevitable light of truth that it brings–you may realize you learned much more than you thought you did, or were more powerful, or more brutally honest, or that you deceived yourself, or any of a million epiphanies my clients have shared with me about their 2017 experience.

The One Thing You Must do Before Crafting 2018 Goals

The new year is one of my favorite times of the year—the blank slate, the feeling of freshness and excitement about the year to come. It’s one of the best times to set goals and create a vision for the year. I’ve gone through so many processes of goal-setting: making resolutions, burning what I want to release, creating a vision board, writing down my goals, eschewing goals altogether in favor of a word of the year.

How Strong Is Your Sisterhood?

If you know me, you know that building community is a cornerstone of how I live my legacy. I constantly speak and write about tribe. About community. About sisterhood. As more women are joining an amazing group-coaching experience CWM is starting in Jan, it got me thinking about sisterhood more.

Sarah's Favorite Holiday Gifts

Aaaah, I love the holidays. Genuinely. I know what you’re thinking, how can that be? The decorating, the gifts, the events for work, children, and family–the season starts out fine, but by the second week of December, it’s overwhelming and stressful. What if you could let go of your expectations of what you think the holidays “should” look like and dare to enjoy the run-up.

Gratitude and Ambition: Together At Last

I’ve been thinking a lot about Gratitude since Thanksgiving is just a few days away. I keep having this thought around it and wonder if you have too. From as young as I can remember, I was taught to be grateful and happy for what I have. As an adult, I’ve noticed gratitude has been productized.

How Sharp Are Your Instincts? 3 Practices to Help You Hone Your Instincts

As I was helping my preschooler get ready for his first day of school this past August, he knew right away what he was going to wear on that first day—his shark t-shirt and aloha-patterned shorts. No comparing shirts, no changing outfits a bunch of times. He didn’t call in his brothers to ask them what they thought. He just instinctively knew the right thing to wear.

Inspire Your Inner Adventurer

Everytime I sit down to write about this experience, I get a bit giddy inside. There are two things I LOVE in life: surprises and adventure. Why? Because it ignites the feeling of wonder, play and aliveness inside of me. It takes the days that can start to feel very routine, mundane and dare I say groundhog like and put them on their head.

What if You Effortlessly Efforted?

I’ve been meeting so many moms who express the desire to have more joy in their lives, that they wish it didn’t have to be so serious, but somewhere along the way they lost touch with their playful, joyful child self, and instead find themselves faced with their successful, serious woman self that they perhaps take pride in, but find that they don’t enjoy being very much.

How to pursue your goals AND relish the experience

Do you ever struggle being fully present with what you are doing in this moment? Perhaps occupied with a project at work when you are actually spending time with your children? Or maybe worrying about your child’s report card while taking a shower? And I’m not even going to say the word “Facebook.”

Wondering how you can make a difference in a world that feels so evil?

Do you ever feel overwhelmed, disheartened, and angry by all that is happening in the world? Do you wonder how on earth you could make a difference in redirecting our world, when some of the issues feel so gigantic? For me, I instinctively feel emotional, but when it comes to trying to be a part of the solution instead of the problem, where does one start?

What I Love About Being a Mom

In a recent conversation that felt more like a major blow up with my oldest son, he asked me, “Do you like being a Mom?” Initially, the voice in my head had quite a sarcastic response, but my heart immediately felt a heavy sigh. “Of course I do.” It was that moment when I realized {again} that this whole thing called Motherhood is pretty mind-blowing. Full stop.

Need a Go-To Tool to Shift That Old Perspective?

Look around your space for an entire minute (set your timer) and, with the full force of your attention, commit to memory every red thing in the space. Don’t read on until you’ve done that. Now close your eyes and bring to your mind everything in your space that’s blue.

The Difference Between Happening FOR You & TO You

The other day I was caught up with getting ready for a school holiday, prepping for a trip, packing up my family, and all that goes into taking a break from my practice. I was buzzing around, tying up loose ends, when my middle son looked up and said, “Look mom, the trees are dancing. They’re trying to delight me.”
