Bridge. Kerstin McInnis, Career Transition Coach

“Drive across the bridge.  You don’t have to understand it all right now.  Information and understanding will come later.  You’ll get to the other side.  For now, trust and experience what you’re going through.  Know that this time of change is sacred, too.”  ~ Melody Beattie My life has felt as if it was in a “time of change” for … Read More

Joe Biden

Last week Joe Biden was on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The interview was emotional and touching. Stephen asked him about his son Beau who died this year.

That sounds exhaustingly painful. I used to … Read More

I’m sorry. It’s okay. No it’s not. A few weeks ago, I found myself participating in this short conversation. I’d say, “I’m sorry”. The person I said it to would say, “It’s okay” and I’d respond, “No it’s not”. In each situation the person I was saying, I’m sorry to wasn’t someone I’d hurt. It was someone who I loved, … Read More

When I was in my twenties, I wasn’t very good at using my words or asking for what I wanted. I often went along with what everyone else was doing, saying “fine by me,” when it often wasn’t “fine”.
