I remember the times that I was struggling what seemed like every single day. I would wake up either by a crying child, dog barking at the imaginary mailman in his sleep, or the intermittent snore sounds from my hubby. Either way, it was how life initiated me into my day. Some days it didn't seem to affect me and other days it felt like every last morsel of my energy was being sucked out of me. I would squeeze in a workout, but feel hurried and rushed. I always felt like I was just trying not to let the day become a total shitshow. If it seemed to work out then I considered myself lucky and if not then I would hunker down until I crashed in bed at the end of the day, completely depleted.
You may have heard about Masterminds or may be wondering if this is something only science nerds do! I recently came back from a Mastermind and was really blown away with how connecting with other powerful women was so abundantly supportive to my inner growth. It tapped into a deep part of my soul, so that I could come back home feeling more centered for my family and more passionate about my work.
I'm really struck by the U.S. Government shutdown and the display of arrogance and debauchery going on. But because this is not a forum to discuss the politics side of it, I would rather talk about what has come out of it, so far.
It’s amazing to see the response by people who want to help those that are being affected by this. There have already been many examples of the goodness of people. The humanity of people supporting and helping others. It's actually the one shinning light out of this whole fiasco.
But the I'm shocked by the number of people who are getting the help and feeling ashamed that they have to ask for support! Support because of something they did not ask for or do to themselves.
It's the holiday time and we are winding down to the end of the year. I'm on a mission this year to make sure the people who following me and are in my sphere, end on a good note. I want YOU to end strong so that 2019 becomes the year that you START on the right foot.
I recently had a talk with one of my clients. She is a strong and confident woman, especially how she shows up on social media. She inspires people and has written really compelling content. She is vulnerable and raw at times and it can be hard to read, I’ll admit. But with each stretch in her being a woman, she has started to have success.
Have you ever gone to conference or an event where you get totally inspired and injected with excitement with all the possibilities your life? Think Tony Robbins or Lewis Howes. (read my post about The Summit of Greatness)
It's that time of year again, where Summer is coming to a close and the nip of Fall has touched our senses. You can feel the hints of the cool air as you step outside in the morning, while still having a warm Summer afternoon. It's definitely changing.
In Chinese medicine, the Fall time is all about "letting go"…
Do you ever have one of those days (hopefully not weeks) where nothing you seem to do works for you? You try one road and you get the door slammed in your face. And because you’re a tenacious person, you keep moving forward and try another avenue. But still the same thing happens, you get no traction. So you keep trying and but no one seems to notice all your efforts to get ahead or do more. Whether it’s your job, your “fresh new attitude”, or just trying to create momentum in your business, all your effort doesn’t seem to have much return. “The wind is knocked out of your sails", you feel dejected, and basically like nothing you do is working.
Do you find yourself ever doubting your greatness and who you were meant to show up as in your world? Yeah! Me too. It's so easy to go to the "comfortable" spot. When life is throwing a lot of "stuff" your way it's easy to let your priorities taking care of yourself fall to the side of a pile of shit that needs to get done. Especially if you have a great excuse like your dog is sick or your kids are throwing up. It's one thing to let it go for a day or two. It's completely another thing to get completely off track. Well, that's what happened to me.
When I was younger, Valentine's Day meant chocolate and roses from whomever I was dating at that time. I was excited to get it especially since it was 5 days before my birthday, so it was an extra special week for me. Now, it's about sharing my love for my kids and the life my husband and I have co-created. I put together some of my favorite things that are a little outside of the typical box and do a great job in saying you're special to me.
