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?
Do you pick a word to represent the coming year?
I think it’s a fantastic practice to help the brain connect to a consistent way of being that is a reflection of my desires over the next 12 months.
This is the 3rd year I’ve done it and I’ll share it but first I’ll share my last 2...
At the beginning of 2019, right after I decided to leave my network marketing business and branch out on my own, investing in a high value (and expensive ) coaching program, my word was BRAVE.
And I was...
In January of 2020, as I was midway through my NeuroCoaching certification program and applying the mindset techniques I was learning, I picked the word ELEVATE, knowing I had to do just that to be a difference-maker in the world.
And I did...
This year I chose the word SILENCE because in order to get to the next level I desire, I must go inward.
Less busyness, which is my tendency as a person with workaholic, high achieving tendencies, and more silence.
Silence to me means more...
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!
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.
Let’s be honest… If Mondays make up 1/7th of our entire life, we should start being more serious about how we spend them.
I used to HATE Mondays. They stole my joy because they were the beginning of a new week of doing work that did not light me up.
In fact Mondays sucked the life right out of me.
I changed all that a year ago when I went ALL IN on what I discovered to be my purpose and now I LOVE Mondays, especially bc my commute is to walk across my family room and into my office where I do the work that lights me up - helping women over 50 find THEIR purpose... I even recreated it in this video!
Now my mission to help people love their Mondays - and every other day of the week!!!
I spent far too long devoid of passionate work, growing more miserable with every Monday. Looking back, it makes me so sad that I spent so many Mondays in that stuck place and that memory drives me hard.
So if you're anything like the old me, here’s to starting this work week with a...
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...
For many Americans, this weekend after Thanksgiving is the kickoff to Christmas, with the roll out of holiday decorations and the putting up of the tree.
I know a few folks started earlier this year because we can all agree it’s been a rather unusual year where nothing is normal, but I decided to stick to my normal plan, with one exception...
I’m on my own!!!
My husband, who usually does the heavy lifting and dragging of the artificial tree parts and tubs of decorations from the garage, is out of commission recovering from hernia surgery - likely a result of Christmases past!
So today I feel amazingly accomplished because I did a man’s job!!! And it was not easy!
I’m ecstatic that I didn’t get injured and I think I burned quite a few calories in the process. What a workout!!!
I’ve decided to reward myself with some spiked eggnog while I admire the completion of Phase 1 of my project!
Phase 2, which is my usual annual job of ornament placement...
It’s amazing how often I used to say this word... Little did I know how much it affected my life!
Now I’m aware of this word and I’m able to catch it when I say it and replace it with a better word. It’s pretty unbelievable how magical this simple switch in my vocabulary has shifted things for me.
Listen in to hear the words!
Just imagine how better the world would be if us humans collectively switched up these words and came from a state of abundance instead of lack... Try it and if you found this tip useful, pass it along.
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...
