You don’t have to do it alone. Really.


It’s true that you do have to do the work.  If you really want to live a life that you love, YOU have to risk looking deep into your heart and soul.  YOU have to contemplate.  YOU have to make choices. . .sometimes tough choices.  YOU have to have discipline.  YOU have to honor your values.  YOU have to do the things that you love.

If you are not living a life you love, you will have to make changes.


Join a class, or hire a coach, or get a therapist, or join a congregation, or gather a group of like minded friends.  Share what you are contemplating.  Do something. . .anything and see if it has resonance for you.  2014 is calling you to live a life you love.  Do whatever it takes.

I too have to put it all out there.  I LOVE coaching.  I LOVE teaching.  I LOVE creating art.  I LOVE moving people towards living a life they love, and I deeply desire to work with more people who want to move in that direction.

We can work together.

  • Contact me if you’d like to be a guest blogger for the next LTLYLead series.
  • Join me Monday-Wednesday for LTLYLead wake-up sessions. (mon-meditation, ties-movement, wed-journaling)
  • Hire me to be your coach.  Clients usually work with me 2x a month for 40 minute sessions. Recently my clients have acknowledged the good, the bad, and the ugly from 2013– are looking at what is at the heart of 2014–are looking at their current edges of growth.  We are looking there, playing there, and creating from there.
  • Contract with me to customize a group series for people you lead. Recently I’ve created and facilitated learning for professionals regarding:  conflict, leading with influence when you do not have authority, MBTI, using social media to clarify your mission and brand.

Let’s share what we love and use that energy to fuel us as we move boldly into 2014.  Know someone who is on the verge?  or someone who wants more allies?  or someone who is a lonely leader?  Share my message with them and encourage them to contact me.

Love the life you live,

In my art, my coaching, and my spiritual practice I consistently return to wonder and awe. As I turn to wonder and create from there I experience a profound connection with source. This movement brings me to this latest series of scarves. I love the idea of wrapping oneself in an idea–an intention– a possibility, and creating beauty with that intention. My hope is that when one chooses this scarf to wear, they turn from disconnected bland to soulful brilliant. Of course when the scarf is open and hung you can read the message, yet when it is draped and worn, the message is simply seen as a design. My promise is that the wearer is reminded to turn towards the message and that the message is shared through the wearers actions and interactions with others. Melinda Abrams Melinda loves living in Chapel Hill, NC with her husband and three children.

    Thanks, Melinda — enlightening words for a really rainy day. Partnership is a powerful alternative to doing it (or feeling like you have to) alone
