Jordana’s Blog: What Are You Selling?Are you working on your pitch? You know, the one you’ll repeat at every holiday gathering in the next few weeks. It’ll sound like an elevator pitch at your company party, it’ll sound like a sales pitch at your friend’s company party, and it’ll sound like a defense argument at your family holiday party.
Jordana’s Blog: I Love It When I’m WrongMy favorite yoga class was canceled a few weeks ago, so after boycotting the new class that replaced it for a while, (my silent protest that hurt no one but me) I decided it was time to try the new teacher.

Jordana's Blog: Not Too Soon AnymoreNearly two years ago a very well-meaning friend sent me a book called 'Divorce is a Mitzvah." I threw it in a closet ... too soon.

I’ve written about her before, she’s a great therapist and very intuitive about body energy. She knows mine.

Jordana's Blog: What 93 Has To Tell 40My Grammy is 93. She's sharp as a tack, lives independently in Florida, still drives and wears as much bling as my 9-year-old. I saw her this week for Passover and my dad's 70th birthday party.
Jordana’s Blog: Who Said That?When did I get to be the grownup? Some of the things that come out of my mouth have made me pause and look around for who actually said that. This happened the other day in the car. In the car that wasn't totaled.
Jordana's Blog: The Wisdom Of A 9-Year-OldCrazy title I know, because when my kids were little and I was doing ECFE some mom’s would wax poetic about how much they were learning from their infant and how they were growing as a person now that they were a mother.
Jordana's Blog: The Most Beautiful Things I've Ever HeardWords are powerful and when they are used for good, spoken with love, they can create moments and feelings you never forget.
Jordana's Blog: Honor Thy Father And Thy MotherA visit from the parents is always an adventure. You never know if there will be a blowout fight, some passive aggressive verbal slights or just typical disdainful judgments about who you’re sleeping with or how you parent.
Jordana's Blog: Sisters, Blood And OtherwiseI had a sister once. (I still do have one blood relative sister, she's amazing, alive and well in Long Island, love you Deb.) This sister was not blood, but we shared a brain and a heart.
