Then Aspirable is for you.
And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good. —John Steinbeck, East of Eden Today I did a liberating thing. I opened a box containing my version of Schrödinger’s Cat*. (* It’s a metaphorical box. There are no actual kitties of any kind in this post. If you got to this blog by looking for internet […]
It’s January 1 and I have to say, I have a good feeling about this year. Last year was a big bleurgh. I felt lost, with little sense of fun or passion. I was sleeping poorly, largely because I couldn’t breathe well at night. I felt tortured about work and what I should be doing. I was letting petty […]READ MORE
It’s a lot of pressure being married to someone who never lies. Especially for me, as I’ve been known to resort to a fib, like, once or twice. Such as the time I was running late because my playlist shuffled up a string of great songs, and I stopped getting dressed to grab my hairbrush and belt out […]READ MORE
Occasionally someone does something that’s designed to hurt you. You, in particular. Most likely because they are hurt or angry about something they believe you did to them.

Recently I was chatting with a young friend about dressing sexy. She was lamenting how, when her youthful cohorts tried to dress sexily, they so often ended up looking, well, the opposite.

I created this site for people like us. People who know there’s a life they crave, a person they want to be, and who are ready to begin the journey.
I’ve worked in jobs that drained my soul out of my pores. I’ve sacrificed what matters to me for the approval of people who don’t. I’ve known what I long to do with my life yet allowed every type of excuse and fear and self sabotage to stop me.
And, eventually, step-by-step, I’ve learned to create a life based on what I truly care about.
I’ve based the Aspirable program partly on the things I learned in my Psychology degree, the thesis I researched and wrote on Happiness, a Life Coaching accreditation, my corporate career, the experience I gained running successful businesses, and the reality of being a wife, friend, daughter, sister, and charmingly neurotic introvert.
But the most powerful influence on this program has been the little voice inside me, the one I could barely hear above the cacophony of convention and obligation and expectation, the persistent whisper of child-me, who I had betrayed.
Aspirable is for all those little people still in us. They deserve to be heard.
