The Things We Run From

By | Awareness, Business Growth, Happiness, Healing, mindshift, Personal Growth, Power, Success | No Comments

Have you ever noticed how much time and money we spend distracting ourselves? The multi-billion dollar “entertainment industry” solely exists to cater to this desire.

In the space of ‘doing nothing’ we are confronted with our thoughts and emotions and our unwillingness to be with them. It can be downright scary to sit with or face the aspects ourselves…

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” ~ Sharon Salzberg, New York Times Best Selling Author In my coaching practice it is common for people to think they should do certain things to practice self-care, such as prayer, meditation, yoga or journaling. All of these are excellent practices to be sure. The reality is that what restores us is as individual as our thumbprints. What you do to restore yourself is strictly…

How to Recognize When You Need Self-Care

By | Awareness, happines, Personal Growth | No Comments

Self Care. Sometimes it can feel like a dirty word (or more accurately, two dirty words) Taking care of yourself can feel like yet another thing on your already full plate. If you’re a caregiver/caretaker for others, you may not have anything left over at the end of the day for yourself. Boy have I been there and done that! As a woman, a mother, a wife, I had been conditioned to nurture and nourish others, to put myself last….

“Remove the veils so I might see what is really happening here and not be intoxicated by my stories and my fears.” ~ Elizabeth Lessor Life is like a roller coaster. There are moments of incredible joy, deep sadness, times of stillness and times of flow. And then there are other moments where we are caught up with obsessing and comparing ourselves to other people, feeling jealous and judgmental. We experience fear and anger and frustration. Life is filled with…

The Power of Commitment

By | Awareness | No Comments

Commitment is the foundation of great accomplishment. We all intuitively understand that, to achieve greatness, we must deeply invest in ourselves and take the action of committing to things that are important to us. In this way our commitment shapes our lives. I think it’s important to first define what we mean by commitment. Is it the same thing as an obligation? A promise?

Many of us are conditioned to think of being fearful as a weakness. Fear is something we are supposed to conquer, fight and overcome… or avoid feeling completely. “Don’t worry…don’t panic” we like to say to one another. But what if we consider fear from a different perspective? What if we think…

By | Personal Growth | No Comments

“Balance is the key to everything. What we do, think, say, eat, feel; they all require awareness and through this awareness we can grow. ~ Koi Fresco Eckhart Tolle, spiritual teacher and author, once pointed out something quite insightful – we are human beings, not human doings. Most of us forget to just be. We forget that we are enough just by being. We don’t have to do anything to be magnificent. Most of us forget to just be. We…
