Cheryl Richardson > Meet Your Inner Saboteurs

We all need scaffolding. We need others who believe in us when we’re not ready to believe in ourselves just yet. We need fresh ideas, different perspectives, and ongoing encouragement to stay on the path when the road gets bumpy. Cause it always gets bumpy.

I stepped off the scale and stared at the lever pointing to the numbers reflecting my new weight. How long have I dreamt about this moment, I thought to myself? Months? Years?

Cheryl Richardson > Grace under Pressure

This week I’m rerunning a story about an experience I had with my friend Melissa while in Maine a few years back. It’s one way I remind myself to choose kindness in the face of unexpected, challenging circumstances.

Cheryl Richardson > Speak Kindly: Stop beating yourself up

Last week I had a conversation with a friend who was disappointed in herself for not achieving a goal that she intended to accomplish. As I listened to her talk about what she could have done differently, I was amazed at how hard she was on herself.  Really hard.  Isn’t it strange how we actually think that berating ourselves will somehow make a positive difference? 

Cheryl Richardson > Feline Self-Care Wisdom

It’s a hot, steamy day here in the Northeast and I snuck out early to get a hike in before the humidity threatened to melt my motivation. I’m grateful to have developed the discipline during the pandemic to move every day in spite of the weather.

Cheryl Richardson > Financial Self-Esteem: Raise the bar

While cleaning out old files last week I came across an article from Money Magazine about the secrets of achieving your money dreams (even on a modest income). The article focused on the strategies of people who had created a net worth of one million dollars or more. The common denominator in each success story was the commitment to pay careful attention to how they spent and invested their money.  As a result, every person had acquired a high level of financial self-esteem – the key to creating and sustaining wealth.

Cheryl Richardson > An Important Self-Care Reminder

Last year, I shared a note I wrote to myself when we first went into lockdown for the pandemic. I used it to stay focused on self-care when I felt stressed so I’d remain helpful to myself and others. 

Cheryl Richardson > How God Works In Mysterious Ways

This morning I went to church for the first time in years.

I’d been thinking about going to celebrate Easter and a last-minute invitation from a friend who wanted company sealed the deal.

Cheryl Richardson > When Hard Work Works

This week I celebrated a milestone. In February, after enlisting the part of me that loves a good challenge, I decided to use what I learned from swimming in cold water to take on a new goal...

Cheryl Richardson > What the Royal Tribe Has To Teach Us

Last week I watched the interview Oprah Winfrey conducted with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. I hadn’t intended to see it, but when a friend who didn’t have cable asked to watch it on our TV, I happily agreed so we could enjoy some time together.
