The fall

That lower-case 'f' is on purpose. We're not talking a season here, we're talking an experience. A not-awesome experience. On a quick decision, I signed up for a half marathon next July. Awesome. No problem. I'm out of shape, but this is something I've done before, so it feels like a doable goal, something to... Continue Reading →

Passion: 2

Okay, now we've discovered something you are passionate about - hooray! But Caryn, why did you ask us to sit with it for a minute? I'm glad you asked! If you're anything like me, it can take a moment of reflection to determine if something truly is mine, or if it's something I have assumed... Continue Reading →

Passion

A few weeks ago, I asked all of you what you wanted to hear about, and the topic of passion came up. Specifically, finding passion again. I've spent time mulling the topic and have decided a few things. First, I am by no means an expert. Second, this is definitely something worth talking about. Third,... Continue Reading →

Fear as a fence

I was talking with a coworker the other day and we kept circling around a specific topic. Her words: "I'm afraid I'll mess something up." Oh, sweet friend. I get this. I get the fear of failure, the sting of being wrong, of somehow creating an unsolvable mess, especially in the professional realm. We as... Continue Reading →

Celebrations can include all kinds of things. Foods. Drinks. Sweets. You get the drift. But right now, I'm working on my self from... Continue Reading →

These past weeks have felt foreign in a way that seems both normal and absolutely surreal. When I worked a full (overfull, really) schedule, there was always that escapist part... Continue Reading →

Bathing Supta Baddha Konasana

This weekend found me holding space for several issues in several roles (no, we're not talking about those today), and it came at a cost. I'm tired. I'm at the end of myself. So I pulled out my list and opted to take care of me. First, alone time. There was too much out and... Continue Reading →

Saturday morning

Monday through Friday, I hustle. I #Werk. I roll myself out of bed before the rest of my people, dress like the #BossLady that I am, and walk my high-heeled self out the door to hit the office. And once I'm there, it's nonstop. Email. Phone calls. Meetings. Instant Messages. Text Messages. Conference calls. GoToMeetings.... Continue Reading →

Off the top

I don't know about you, but today for me was a full day. You know the ones, where you get pivots and unexpected shifts which can be challenging to navigate. I came home to find that all my peoples had similar days. There were tears, disappointments, boundary-drawing (no, you cannot play Xbox when you are... Continue Reading →
