A new moon ritual for your MOST important relationship

A new moon ritual for your MOST important relationship

Go outside and collect 10 leaves. Put them aside or press them under a big book.  Then, grab a journal or notepad and answer these questions... ➳ What do you want to let go of? ➳ What do you want to call in more of? These are two questions that we meditated on during...

A personal crisis clarifies

A personal crisis clarifies

In the past couple of weeks someone very close to me, who had previously been perfectly healthy, got very sick. I’m happy to report that they are on the mend and will pull through. It was close though. Scarily close. I am beyond appreciative for all the care they...

It was robbing me of my life force

It was robbing me of my life force

I got to meet Jenny for the first time last month. I was in California for work, friends, family and fun.  I was also taking some time just for me. On August 1st, we had a meet up at an outdoor café for WILL members and alumni. It was AMAZING to meet people in person,...

Three WILL success stories

Three WILL success stories

WILL wins range from the micro to the macro. WILL Members and Alumni have set boundaries around bogus deadlines, taken weekends away with their spouses, and given notice to their firms. One even landed a job at her dream institution, the Metropolitan Museum of Art! I...

How your lawyer brain can help propel you forward

How your lawyer brain can help propel you forward

As a lawyer, you are probably well trained in “either/or” thinking.   You may think things like… ...I either make big law money, or I’ll earn nothing. ...I’m either a lawyer, or I don’t know what else I am. ...I either suck it up, or I’m a loser. I recently came...

There has NEVER been a better time

There has NEVER been a better time

There has never been a better time to leave (big) law! Seriously. As you know, some firms are requesting, or requiring people to come back into the office.  Many people I speak with do not want to go. Instead of going back into the office, where would you like to go?...

Compounding Anxiety and Life Preservers

Compounding Anxiety and Life Preservers

The other day, I spoke with a woman who told me that she wakes up every morning with generalized anxiety.  There’s no particular matter she is worried about specifically, yet her heart races and her eyes pop open in fear.  She’s also not able to be present with her...

What are you investing in?

What are you investing in?

A WILL member I’ll call Samantha has been working with us for just a couple of months.  She gave her notice last week. She spent nine years practicing law, and nothing was changing. That is, except for her mental and physical health, and not for the better. She does...

What we can learn from the Law of Gestation

What we can learn from the Law of Gestation

Sometimes, I speak to women who want to be in another job right now. The suffering, compounded anxiety and exhaustion is no joke. They are depleted and they are done. If that feels familiar, you could probably be in another legal job pretty quickly, or take a leave of...

Your brain wants to know

Your brain wants to know

Recently, I had dinner over at a friend’s apartment (which was so lovely!) I noticed that the elevator in her building didn’t have a display at the top to show where it is when you call it. I didn’t like that. When you watch a YouTube video, one of the very first...

Are you imagining the worst?

Are you imagining the worst?

As a lawyer, you are trained to spot issues and protect your clients. Add to that a natural negativity bias, because our brain is designed to protect us, and you’ve got a challenging situation! When you imagine the worst, you are imagining against yourself. The life...

Space to be a hot mess

Space to be a hot mess

I recently went up to Northampton, Massachusetts, to visit with one of my best friends. It was great to be back as I used to live there. One of the highlights was being invited to a "grief and release" party. Maybe that sounds strange, but let me tell you about the...
