Quotefancy-849108-3840x2160

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…

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

Gift of Triggers

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…

Header Weekend Soul Retreats

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…

I was at an event last weekend and I asked a woman I was chatting with if she had joined the program that was being offered by the coach who’s event it was. She replied: “I’d love to. I really want to. I need it …BUT … I’m in another program that doesn’t finish until…

What Got You Here, Won’t Get You There

Today is day #23 of a 100 day exercise commitment I’m doing. What that means is, I am choosing to move my body for a minimum 30 minutes EVERY day – whether I feel like it or not. I’m actually not doing it to lose weight or be healthier (although it will probably result in…

Why Confidence Is Over-Rated

Sure, confidence is very sexy. No doubt about it. It’s much easier to take action when you feel confident. The problem is that many people are waiting until they feel “confident” before they take action.  Big problem.
