Maria’s Musings & Advice Column

slide2In a quandary? Life got you down? Need some perspective, or to just catch your breath? Check out Maria’s Musings & Advice. Here’s what readers are saying about my new column:

I read Maria’s advice every week. I’m grateful because afterwards I feel smarter and like a better person. There are always tips and suggestions to employ in my daily life. — Tracey

I may not have the same problem of your contributors, however, I can always pull something out of your advice that can help me with something else going on in my life. Thank you! — Carol

Indeed, your column needs to be read diligently by anyone struggling with a personal problem. — Polly

Let me know what’s on your mind. Submit your question on the form, below. My best topics are creativity, navigating change, women’s stuff, work, and family. Just let me know whatever’s on your mind or heart. Or maybe you have a question “for a friend”—that’ll work, too!

Your questions will come directly to me, and your identity will not be published or shared in any way. By submitting a question, however, you release the content of your question to me for publication on my blog. I’ll publish a new advice column every Thursday.

I recently contacted a favorite author who used to write an advice column for an online magazine. My question: Any advice? His response: “Well, Maria, you just have to get people to send you letters and then answer them as honestly as you can. I’m happy to hear about your efforts in that area, but that’s pretty much it in a nutshell.” Will you please be among the first to help me launch this column?

Thanks in advance for your help. I look forward to hearing from you!
