    May's Client of the Month: Nicki

    There are many things that define long-time Santa Clara County resident Nicki: wife of 35 years, mom of two successful boys, dedicated professional, exceptional quilter, always ready with a whitty comeback. But it wasn’t so long ago that something bigger stared her down, dampening the excitement that life should have in her 50s. “I was unhappy with how my body felt and unhappy with how my body looked,” she recalls. It was a problem that had compounded for over a decade. Her weight had begun to creep up in her 40’s, a brand-new experience that she hadn’t previously encountered.

  • The truth about fear

    It’s easy to think that the ones out there doing the things are fearless, some kind of special beings that have it all together, but that’s not the case. Not even by a long shot. Like thick fog on a cool morning, fear masks reality and lies, convincing us that we don’t have what it takes. It’s a defense mechanism our brains have to protect us from the unknown, no matter how fantastic that place may be. It’s something we have the power to overcome, if only we would be bold enough to unlock our full potential. Here’s the thing: fearless isn’t the goal. Courage, bravery and confidence are the things to achieve. These are things we gain by ....
