My bookshelf in my home office is packed with non-fiction books. Mostly memoirs and titles related to personal development. And here on my blog, I've danced between these two styles of writing: memoir (personal stories) and self-help (life lessons and interviews). Back In 2008, I took a bunch of classes and became a certified life coach. When I launched this blog around that same time, I wore my life coach hat. My earliest posts were...

It's my job to teach my children this thing that I believe, even as I struggle to live it.
It's happened to me twice, and both times I was at Target. First in the diaper aisle, as I scanned the rows for a pack of pull-ups with the best price and best cartoon character on the front. The second time was in the parking lot, when I spotted a young mom collapsing a stroller and tossing it in the trunk in one fluid motion. It's a skill. I gave her a silent nod of respect.  Each time, I felt it. A pang of loss. The "new mom" sea...

Whether you're overwhelmed or crushing it, this video has something for you. 
Copyright Galyna Andrushko Last week, my new friend Solange Swafford invited me into her home to talk about a topic we're both quite passionate about: how living from place of being and can transform what we do and how we do it.  It's an idea I embrace but also wrestle with. Because, there's SO MUCH to do. And, if we spend all of our time focused on being, how are we supposed to get anything done?  Solange, a Licensed Independent...

How do two people build one life?
I turned onto East Bay Street, made a  few quick turns and secured a lucky parking spot on a cobblestone street. I dialed Shawn. "I found a parking spot and there's another one right behind me, are you close?" We stayed on the phone as I navigated: turn there, now turn again... I see you, do you see me? I watched his headlights, feeling a hint of excitement as they got closer. Success. Have you ever tried to park downtown, anywhere?...

Yesterday, I felt myself rushing around, feeling stressed. The kids will get out of school on Friday. Family is coming this weekend. Friday feels like a deadline.

I'm great at working deadlines. But yesterday, I felt like a holiday cliche. Stuck in traffic and grouchy.

No.

I didn't intend for this to happen. I never intend for this to happen. I have to remind myself that getting overloaded doesn't mean I'm doing life wrong. We're not doing life wrong. There are always a million things coming at us all the time. Things we feel like we should do, things people ask us to do, things we need to do, things we want to do, things we do out of habit. 

Each day, each moment, we have a chance to reset the filter. 
I met a woman recently who told me that she heard me speak years ago. And now, when she starts to get overloaded, she scratches about 20 things off her to-do list.  Neither one of us could remember exactly when I gave that talk, the one that inspired her to non-action in times of stress. But in that moment, I asked myself, am I walking my talk? Do I remember to take my own advice? When things get too crazy, just don't do it. (Tweet ...

Speaking from my own experience... and also, a free webinar coming up Wednesday night...
Staying together requires a lot of things: commitment, respect, and giving 100% of yourself while maintaining your own identity. Here are some ways to help.

Six years ago, I flew across the country to attend a writing workshop in California. I was pregnant with my second child, and I hadn't yet declared myself a writer, at least not publicly. When I heard about the workshop, I knew I had to go.  Nicole Lusiani. Photo by Caitlin O'Reilly. That's how I met Nicole Lusiani, a high school teacher in the same season of life as me. Husband, kids and a strong call to write. We sat cross-legge...

Last summer, I experienced a rare night of comfy couch-sitting and connected conversation. I say rare because have you met my three wonderful children? It was shortly after the videos from the Listen To Your Mother show were released on YouTube, and I invited the Charleston cast members to my house to watch them together.  We'd heard these stories many times. I'd heard them first, in the auditions. The selected cast had heard them...

Do you have a word?
I wrote this post on January 7, but I didn't have time to edit it. Today, when I came back to it, I realized a full week had passed.  And in my Forrest Gump voice, all I have to say about that is, "That's January. January is as January does." January is crazy town. I look back on last January, and it was exactly the same. So, I'm trying not to resist the nature of January, with all of its school holidays and weather delays and germs...

Recently, the boys and I were in the kitchen working on homework when Cate walked in.  "Look!" she said. "I have Elfie" Our jaws dropped. Blake, who loves the elf and is the first to find him each morning, gasped. Dillon, who knows the deal but plays along, looked at me and we both stifled a laugh. Things went blurry after that. The general words coming from the kitchen were "No, no Cate! You're not supposed to touch the elf. H...

On Black Friday I found myself in a online "good vibe" wonderland. And even though some of the really great deals and sales are gone, I thought I'd share a few goodies I found, in case you're looking for gift ideas for someone you love. Or for yourself. Because you know I totally bought some of these things for myself. First, a couple of disclosures: I realized after writing this post that every single gift has words on it. Which mak...

Story
Tagline
Create a life that feels like home.
Introduction

Over the years, I've learned that home is much more than a physical place. Home is a state of being. It's a mind, body, spirit thing. It's a lifestyle.

I've been on a journey to feel at home inside my own life for much of my life. I finally experienced a turning point a little more than a decade ago when I left my career as a television journalist. I realize now that the past ten years have been less about reinventing myself and more about becoming my actual self. 

I started the blog HEART • SOUL • HOME to help you create a life that feels like home. It's a place where you come to get personal stories, interviews, tips and resources to inspire you to clear your space, embrace your creativity, live authentically and move towards what lights you up. 

Some other things about me: I'm the Director and Producer of the Charleston production of Listen To Your Mother, a national series of live readings celebrated locally on stages and globally via social media. I also work as an on-camera spokesperson, helping brands tell their stories. Behind the scenes, I'm writing a memoir.
