The Powerless Nature "I’m Sorry"

They say words have power… Words have power.  You can get metaphysical, spiritual, or just commonsensical with it. When you tell yourself you will do something, you usually do it.  When you say, “I think I’m getting sick” you usually end up sneezing within the hour.  Words carry the ability to shape your world. We let […]

Get Some Rose Colored Glasses

Constant criticizers make my eyes water. Overly-sensitive, insecure backbiters make my stomach turn. Liars make my ears bleed. Manipulators make my blood boil. Fakers make my head hurt. My eyes, stomach, ears, blood and head are all physically affected by the aforementioned persons. However, my heart is steadfast in love for them.  How can that […]

It is no surprise that many of my fellow life coaches and counselors disagree with my philosophy on balance.  After all many coaches and counselors make a living with clients who seek “balance” in their lives. In my personal opinion AND EXPERIENCE I believe that the notion of life balance sets women up for failure […]

Kicking My "But"

Life Coach, Kamryn Adams When I was a little girl there was a Saturday morning cartoon called “School House Rock” from which I learned about conjunctions: “and”, “or” and the ubiquitous “BUT”.  Conjunctions link two thoughts together to give us a full picture of the scenario.  How we feel about ourselves can be directly linked to […]

It connects New Jersey to Midtown Manhattan. There is a point in that tunnel where you are too […]

Never Safe, Not Sorry

When we speak of life’s “ups and downs” I like to think of them in this context: There are moments when we are full of faith and courage. Then there are moments when we are fearful and uncertain. Unless you learn to face your fears (and essentially ignore them) you will play it safe over […]
