I haven’t been getting out in nature enough so today I did and now I feel soooo good!!!
Nature is good for the soul - at least for my soul.
You know how I know? ...because of the way I feel right now.
RELAXED. CONTENT. JOYFUL. PEACEFUL. THOUGHTFUL.
Winter makes it harder for me to be in nature because I don’t like the cold but spending time with my youngest grandson at the playground earlier this week and seeing how much it lit up his little soul - and then how I felt after we got home - was a good reminder that, even if it’s cold, I need to get my lazy butt up and out every day.
Because when my soul gets fed what it needs, the world is a better place!
What feeds your soul?
Even Santa wants me to Dream Big!!!
Merry Christmas to all and here’s to wishing all of your dreams come true.
Believe in the possibilities. See them in your mind before they come into your existence.
Send those thoughts and positive energy from them into the universe and see what unfolds for you!
I had a weird dream last night…
I dreamt my husband and I went to a home that was in a rural area. He knew the owner and wanted to show me their home and property. I have no idea who the person was, male or female, or how my husband knew them.
Of course I have no further details because that’s how dreams are!
What I do remember very clearly is that something in the back of the house caught my eye… As I walked back there, the yard sloped down into this separately fenced area with scattered trees.
I then observed 2 gorillas slowly walking around, doing what gorillas do, in the fenced area. That makes no sense, right?
All of a sudden I saw my husband run past me and jump into the fenced area WHERE THE GORILLAS WERE!!!! I began screaming for him to stop but then realized what he was doing. He was running to save our dog, Moji, who had somehow gotten out of our car, and into the fenced-in area with the gorillas. (Mind you, Moji wasn’t in my dream until this...
When you see something beautiful, do you stop and feel grateful? Or do you miss it entirely?
So often we get so caught up in the hubbub of life, especially this time of year, we forget to be present and appreciate the simple beauty that surrounds us.
I was lucky enough to notice it today as I drove to my doctors appointment...
The ice was clinging to the trees and the sun was rising. It was truly breathtaking.
So much so that I wanted to capture it and share it with YOU!!!
Find something beautiful to share with someone today, and in doing so, take a minute to close your eyes (as long as you aren’t driving!) and thank the universe for bringing it to your consciousness.
I promise that you will find joy in that small act and then you’ll begin to find more beautiful moments in your life.
Are you more of an introvert or extrovert? Personally, I've always tested as 100% extroverted.
I've always LOVED people & been fascinated by them, and I now know why I am so fulfilled as a coach. I believe it's my destiny, & even though I took the long way around to get here, I've arrived and it's the most incredible, fulfilling job I've ever had.
What I've learned in the past year is that we all were born with an innate personality, and when you are able to align the work you do with your unique gifts associated with that personality, you become truly joyful at your core.
It's because you are living authentically with who you were born to be, doing what you were meant to do.
The problem is that so many of us get sidetracked because we are trying to please others or adapt into some societal role to be accepted. It's not our fault! We do it because we are unaware it’s happening.
For me, it was all about making money, providing for my family so we had a nice house, fancy...
Part 2 (Decorating) is DONE!!! Phew!
Now I can sit back and enjoy it!!! Although I’ve been looking at it up and lit for 5 days! Because just getting it up all by myself was quite a feat...
My husband did hand me one ornament that I dropped while on the ladder... but since it’s a time-lapsed video, you may not have caught him.
(He just had hernia surgery hence it’s ALL ME this year but decorating is not his idea of fun anyway.)
I love pulling out each ornament, many of them now close to 40 years old.
There are ornaments I got as a wedding gift in 1981, ornaments my now 36 and 38 year old daughters made when in pre-school, ornaments from trips I’ve gone on with both husbands (maybe that’s why my husband doesn’t like decorating!!! lol!), ornaments from parties I’ve attended, and ornaments from friends.
Every ornament I hang has a special memory and I remember them all when I do this annual ritual.
Some people have beautiful trees with...
Today’s a BIG day!!!
And I’m not talking about the election!
Happy birthday to my best friend and amazing partner in this thing called life.
I‘ve loved him for as long as I can remember and he makes my life better for being in it!
And for that, he gets a kiss and a selfie from me on his big day!!!

Moji loves Fall as much as I do!!! And he is ready for his mama to get off her computer and come play with him in the !!!
He’s been a patient boy as I’ve been burning the midnight oil (or actually the 2am oil!)...
But he sleeps near me patiently until I’m done for the “day.”
Today is the LAST opportunity of 2020 to enroll in my life-shifting program... And after today I switch from workshop-serving mode to program-coaching mode.
This is where I get to shift to working with the 1% who are choosing to go ALL IN on finding and living their true purpose.
This is MY purpose. This is where MY LIGHT shines brightest.
I am one of the lucky ones that discovered hers, late in life but not too late to do anything about it.
And now it’s my mission to help others do the same, and in doing, make the world a better place.
And Moji is my right hand fur man!!! It doesn’t get any better than this!!!
I get to live my purpose, help others live theirs, with my favorite...
I used to never have a plan for my life...
And what’s so crazy is that my day job was planning! I was a professional project manager and really, really good at that so I planned many huge technology projects, some that involved 3rd parties in other countries!
So why didn’t I think MY life was as important as a work project?!?! Why did I think other people’s priorities were more important than having a life I wanted?
Because I had no clue there was an alternative. And any alternative would take time I don’t have...
I wasted so much time thinking thoughts that kept me stuck.
Then one day I realized I’m more scared to waste more time not knowing what I’m here for than figuring it out!
It’s time to make time and make my #1 priority figuring it out.
And the result of that is a system I created that works for me!!! I call it The S.P.A.R.K. System and I use it every day.
This system is how I found my purpose. And now, every day is now planned around that...
I’m a little late to the party!!! Yesterday was International Daughter Day and I have two to brag about!
I definitely drew lucky cards in that department! I wanted girls and I got the best I could have ever hoped for!!!
I mean seriously, if I had custom ordered what I wanted, I couldn’t have done any better.
They have given me such joy and laughter and love and amazing experiences. And most of all, the feelings of unconditional love. Oh, and Hanson!!!
I am such a better person for being their mom so thank you whoever anointed me with that job.
I love you to infinity and beyond Nikki Hill Johnson and Kori Hill Wallace!
