Unbreakable Bonds: Honoring Commitments to Yourself First

by candy barone Oct 16, 2023

What exactly is a promise? 

A promise is a declaration of a specific intention. It’s a commitment or vow to deliver something based on a set expectation. It’s a contract.

Even if that contract, or agreement, is with yourself. 

Yet, as we are constantly in motion, and find ourselves in the hustle and bustle of things, we...

Cathartic Cleansing: Why You Need to Create a Practice for Yourself

by candy barone Oct 15, 2023

Crying is good for the soul.

It cleanses the body of a build-up of toxins, of suppressed emotions, and loosens all the gunk that gets stuck in our bodies.

We need to change our narrative around expressing the fullness of our feelings. For it is part of our nature to grieve, to cry tears of joy, to express beauty, and to connect with life...

A Window to the Soul: The Solar Eclipse Is a Symbol of Transformation

by candy barone Oct 14, 2023

Depending on where you live, you may have been able to witness the solar eclipse we experienced earlier today, along with this new lunar cycle. I live in Austin, so you definitely could see aspects of it as it moved through.

Navigating Grief: It's Not Linear or Logical

by candy barone Oct 13, 2023

It’s been nearly a year since I said goodbye to my sweet, Payton. After a decade together, which was not nearly enough time, my sweet baby boy was called to cross the rainbow bridge. 

Due to an unexpected rupture of a cancer tumor in his spleen (I had no idea about), my world turned inside out in the matter of 24 hours. Without...

Are You In Integrity With Yourself?

by candy barone Oct 12, 2023

As a leader, how often do you check in within yourself and ask the tough questions? You know, the kind of questions that require brutal honesty. The ones that pull back the mask, dig deep into the layers, then excavate through the bullshit and noise to uncover your most profound truth.

My guess is … never, or not nearly enough.

Taking the Edge Off: The Addictive Side of Burnout

by candy barone Oct 11, 2023

Sometimes I feel like “burnout” is the ultimate business bingo word these days. It seems like it’s used as a description for everything, and I feel as if we have created a culture that’s actually crazy addicted to it. 

Addicted to the burnout, itself; and also being addicted to all the ways we “take the...

We Need More Mister Rogers in the World

by candy barone Oct 09, 2023

“Won’t you be my neighbor?”

The iconic line said in every episode of the long-running children’s TV show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. This show, being my favorite as a kid and into my college years, ran for an amazing 33 seasons (from 1968–2001).

Believe it or not, I even scheduled my engineering classes...

Getting Emotional: Why Is That We Shame It Versus Celebrate It?

by candy barone Oct 06, 2023

I used to be ashamed of my tears. 

Oh, they used to frustrate the hell of out me. Whether something moved me, and touched my heart, or if it was because I was frustrated and angry. 

I have always been a crier, even though I used to hated that about myself, and I would do everything in my power to shut the tears down. And, the...
