Finding The Gift In Your Pain

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My body was out of alignment. For a few days I had been feeling a ‘clicking’ in my right hip and lower back. I went to chiropractor and got adjusted. It didn’t hold. Within 30 minutes it was clicking again. A deep tissue massage and another trip to the chiropractor helped, but did not completely resolve the issue. I knew my body was trying to tell me something. When an issue doesn’t resolve right away it’s an invitation to look…

What’s Your Fear Of Confrontation Costing You?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

I used to HATE confrontation. I would avoid it like the plague because I was raised to believe it’s “not nice” and I placed a high value on being “nice”.  Is that true for you too? It’s one of the driving forces behind what I call “TOXIC NICENESS”  (where we hold back from expressing how we really feel for fear of hurting someones feelings or to avoid them thinking badly of us.) Fear of confronting (looking at or speaking the…

Using Your Fear As Fuel

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Most of us are taught that being a strong, successful person means that you don’t entertain fear and you certainly don’t show it. Probably because wallowing in it can be draining and can rob us of our joy, self confidence, energy and our power. I know this to be true as I lived with anxiety (fear) for the first 30+ years of my life. I did not know it was my normal state until I experienced NOT having it for…

The Things That Piss You Off (the gift of triggers)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

My cell phone rings. It’s my husband. “Your Moms flight has been cancelled. We’re on our way back home”. My reaction is not joy at having more time with my 87+ year old Mom. On the contrary, I’m pissed! I was really looking forward to her leaving. I love my Mom, but for no obvious reason, during the last week of her visit, her very presence had been triggering me. [trig·ger (trĭg′ər) A device used to release or activate a…

The Power Of Changing Your Mind

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Did you see the movie “Fences”? I loved it! It is based on a powerful play by August Wilson. I loved that even though it was a movie, I felt like I was watching a play. No cinematic fluff. I loved that the filmmaker chose to keep it simple and NOT to use all of the tools available through current technology. It was carried solely on the strength of the brilliant acting (Viola Davis won the academy award for Best…

Finally! The Baby’s Here!

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

If you’ve been following my journey over the last 8 months or so, you’ll know that I was journeying though what I called “The Void”. I surrendered fully to my Souls journey, letting go of much of what I was doing and how I was doing them and creating space for what was wanting to be birthed next through me. It’s has been a journey that has required: Developing greater levels of courage and trust – in myself and the…

Challenge or Opportunity?

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Success | No Comments

Well, Donald Trump has been in office 11 days and chances are you are feeling A) The world has gone mad B) Incredibly stressed and angry C) Disconnected from the whole thing I spoke with a friend last night (who lives in another country) and she was feeling incredibly stressed out by what is happening here in America. I was curious as to why she felt so affected, since she doesn’t live here. I forgot that the world is more…

The Greatest Gifts

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | No Comments

Monday was a ‘doozie’ 🙁 I woke up feeling anxious. So I listened to a guided meditation called “fear clear”. Then I picked up a book I’m currently enjoying: “The Book of Knowing and Worth” by Paul Selig. It didn’t take long before the voices in my head started reminding me that it was Monday and I “should” get up and “get to work”. Traditionally, Mondays are the day I work ‘on’ my business (marketing, planning) , not ‘in’ it…

I’m BACK!!! (Did You Notice I Was Gone?)

By | Business Growth, Personal Growth, Self Care, Success | 2 Comments

I’m BACK!!! Ok, so maybe you didn’t even notice I was gone… 🙂 But if you did, you may be wondering where I’ve been … or maybe not (but I’m going to tell you anyway) Lol! I’ve been in “THE VOID”. It’s a place of deep unknown – in between letting go the old and waiting for /allowing the new (the next level of expansion) to emerge. It can be pretty scary. Especially if you don’t have support and don’t…
