Funny, how milestone birthdays make one reflective. These last two years have been, if nothing else, ones of contrasts.

There have been some major challenges in health and in marriage and on the other side, some major accomplishments. While the challenges still exist, I prefer to reflect upon the tremendous personal strides I've made.

Everything from launching this business and learning to ride the waves of self-doubt - what am I thinking? - and to "knowing" that this is a right fit for me. I have learned the importance of maintaining balance and also increasingly, to live in the moment. Admittedly, if I allow myself to "go there", I could easily start screaming and not stop! So, as my very wise mother would say, "don't do that, then!"

The cornerstone to these magnificent changes is the integration of the techniques that I now love to share through my work as Auntie Stress.
