I’ve been in fast motion my entire life. I wanted everything to happen now and not a second later.
If it happened fast, it was certain. Then I could relax and feel good. (Or so I thought.)
I avoided the present moment of uncertainty because it seemed scary. The not knowing created lots of anxiety. So if I could just make it happen, I could be in the future, where I deemed everything to be okay.
Sounds stressful? Well it was.
Pushing forward in fast motion is never comfortable. And it doesn’t get you the change you really want.
The real kind of soul [...]
When you ask people why they aren’t living the life that they want to, this is what they’ll say: “I don’t have the money”, “I don’t have the time” or “I don’t know what I want”. They also believe something in the present moment is not as it should be, that they need to move forward to a place where everything will be better. They live in a constant state of resistance and waiting.
This is creating needless suffering for you and everyone around you.
I’m here to tell you that it’s time to stop that shit.
I believe you can and [...]
Or in between?
I see it all the time in my clients and it’s something I’ve had to work on in myself. There’s this excitement of knowing exactly what you want and seeing it so clearly in your mind and then bam! The overwhelm hits.Then you start living in the in between. Feeling like you want your dream so badly that you can taste it, but your mind is thinking something will go wrong and it’s just way too much to handle.So you start creating excuses like you have to much on your plate to focus on it, you don’t [...]
As all of you know, I have created a new website and name for my company. I have also created a new Facebook page. One of my main goals in creating my new website was to create a community where women felt comfortable sharing their dreams, goals, and possibilities with like-minded women who would support them and have their back. I find that way too many women isolate themselves and don’t reach out to others.
When you are part of a supportive community it makes all the difference in achieving your goals and creating better physical and mental health. It [...]
“A life lived in fear is a life only half lived.” -Unknown
I came across that quote this week and it really struck me. Fear is a driving force in so many decisions that people make and though it can be healthy at times, most of the time it leaves us in a state of half satisfaction, half deciding, and not really where we want to be. We fool ourselves into thinking that it’s safe because it feels good and then we get to stay exactly we’re at.
It also confuses our bodies which want to be fully alive, not just [...]
It’s the week after the Fourth of July holiday in the US, and I imagine many of you had a busy week with friends and family.
The time off is invigorating, but I imagine you also might be feeling kind of a letdown.
The one thing you need to do after a holiday or something big is very simple: rest.
But it’s the one thing we avoid because we convince ourselves we need to be busy, productive and doing something social.
This became so clear to me recently when I went to the zoo, two times in one week. The first time I went [...]
I wanted to share with you an email I received recently that made me cry…I received an email from a person who read one of my articles on a website I write for. In the e-mail she was asking for advice about a relationship that she was in. She was experiencing a lot of self sabotage and straight out drama.When I got to the part where she described herself as a low value woman, it brought tears to my eyes. The biggest thing I know about women is that if they don’t have a high value for themselves, they [...]
Sometimes it takes the wrong thing to happen for you to understand what you need to do.
In the past my typical response to a glitch in the plan was to panic. I would worry about what I was going to do now and how I was going to do it. I would over think, over worry and over research my options. It was a time waster and energy killer. All it came down to was wanting to control situations and and holding on too close to certainty.
I made some big moves lately, the kind that are life-changing and nerve-racking at [...]
I love to travel. I always have. Though it was stressful for me, I did it anyway. For me the thrill of a new adventure, seeing a new place, and being out of my comfort zone intrigued me so much that it far outweighed my fear.
But it wasn’t easy.
I did learn ways to adapt. I was always pretty good with taking flights, that didn’t seem to bother me. It was hours after the flight and eating travel food that I noticed tightness and pain in my stomach. I would check the hotels I was staying at to make sure [...]
Resistance isn’t always bad, in fact it can teach us crucial things about what isn’t working for us. However, when it gets in the way of allowing us to accept and move forward, it needs to be released.
This came to me when I purposely avoided creating intentions and decided to let the first few weeks of January sink in and let the intentions form themselves. Then when the time was right I decided I was going to create my intention in the form of a word this year and that word is: release.
When it came to me it seemed [...]
