"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

Talking About The Hard Stuff

When I started this blog three years ago, I had a vision. I saw a place where I could speak openly about the events, traumas, joys, and successes that women live everyday. And though the collection of articles has grown...and grown over the years to become a versatile information pool for the women of the world, something is still missing.

Just BE…

This is sort of a random post that I felt like sharing with you. As women, we have so many jobs, titles, and responsibilities that fill our days. And, sometimes, those things overtake us to the point we may not ever have the chance to BE the one person we are meant to or do the things we dream of doing. I know that being a mom, wife, boss, employee, etc. are all valid positions that make us a part of who we are; however, you have to admit, there is so much more to the makings of a beautiful woman. I want to just point out a few possibilities here with this list of "BE" statements. Would you join me in sharing your ideas? Just enter your "BE" suggestion in the comments!

Weight Loss Supplement Dangers Exposed

While surfing my Dish network channels, I immediately paused on a station airing The Dr. Oz Show. He was talking about a frightening issue with some weight loss supplements. Though I don't personally take weight loss supplements, I suddenly thought of all the people who have, who are, and who are thinking about it. The shocking expose pushed me to write this post and spread the word about what is really found in those little diet pills.

Brain Fog Fixes

Do you ever wake up and simply cannot get your brain to operate with clarity? I do. There are many things that can cause this type of physical dysfunction, including, lack of sleep, poor diet, stress, toxins (alcohol, medications, food additives, etc.), allergies, internal conflict, and the list goes on. And, depending on the severity of the condition, it could hinder creativity, work, home life, relationships, and even other body functions.

Quality Sleep And Creativity

To my personal dismay, I have never been a person who sleeps well most of the time. Because of this fact, I have suffered in many ways, including the implementation of creative endeavors. Though I do manage to work through most creative projects...eventually, I know and understand the difference between that which flows after a good night's sleep and the polar opposite that comes following a restless night.

Why Do Women Get Stuck?

You know that horrible feeling you get when your car slides into a muddy ditch or snow mound? Desperate. Helpless. Stuck. This is something that usually happens to everyone...at least once in their life. It usually takes a little help to get unstuck. Well, the muddy or icy hell hole you drove into is really just a metaphor for what could be happening in your life. Women are especially vulnerable to the "ditches" and "snow mounds" that seem to pull us in from time-to-time. Why does this life-hindering thing happen? Though vehicular mishaps usually just sort of happen, life traps grip us as a result of our own thoughts, beliefs, and actions.

Creative Kick In The Rear!

The following was my horoscope for the day. I thought it was amazingly close to what I've been saying to others for a long time. And, I needed to hear it myself, too. The annoying restlessness that you experience today is simply a reminder that it's important to start engaging in art projects or musical endeavors that make you happy. Learn from people who aren't afraid to follow their dreams. Don't be so concerned with what other people think of your work. Now it's important to do these things for yourself.

How Emotions Affect Creativity

Do you ever sit in a inoperable slump, waiting for your foul mood to pass, or for something good to happen to change things? I have. And, while in a state of self-pity and emotional compromise, my creativity has been stifled. Yes, nil, zip, zilch...it was in those times when I tended to focus on what I didn't want, instead of what I did. It was like a steel trap, in the sense that I struggled to escape. Well, at least for those moments.

Write On Beautiful Women!

Kathleen began to notice a disturbing trend. All the books she was reading featured male heroes. As she began to study childhood classics by Dr. Seuss, she noticed the only female characters were negative ones – lazy mothers, gossipy women, or colorless sisters who had no dialog.

The Blame Game

Did you ever wonder why bad things happen to good people? And, do you always blame either God or the devil for those misfortunes? How about considering the alternative? Maybe we create our own drama and unserving dilemmas. I mean, come on, to blame the devil for breaking my toe, when I was foolishly walking through a dark room in the middle of the night to sneak some chocolate cake. Really?

Does Life Coaching Really Work?

You might think there are better things a life coach should be doing then writing about why coaching doesn't work for the majority of those who try it. Well, I had an epiphany, really...a life-changing one. That is, it will change my life as well as yours, if you dare to pay attention and follow through with my intuition on the subject.
