Wants upon a time…

Is the path you’re walking taking you where you want to go?

just because you've been walking the same way on the same path for a looooonnnnnnnnng time, doesn't mean that path is taking you where you want to go. it's possible, that it's time to change directions. i've been in this super reflective space all week and just an hour or so ago, i threw my 2018 planner in the trash-can.  along with it, i threw my 2017 planner away. yup. i'd been holding onto that as well.  it's funny how we keep things...

3 steps to ease into new beginnings

For last year's words belong to last year's language, and next year's words await another voice. -TS Eliot new year. new beginning.  new chance. new opportunity.   for what?  reflection?  celebration?  flagellation?  punishment? conversations of what could have should have needed to do yet didn't get done? for many of us, the new year represents a time for judgment.   "geez i really screwed up last year-- thank goodness that's over....

You can’t change what you won’t look at

When you move to make a change in your life, your unconscious mind will resist. "Nope.  We are not doing THAT." She may lash out or rage. She will dig her heels in. She will scream. "This doesn't feel good!!!! I don't like this at all!" She does not, I repeat, does not want to change. This feeling of massive resistance is natural. It is totally normal. It is all part of the process of change. Resistance is embedded in the pavement leading to...

Do you trust yourself to try?

One week ago today, I was one day home Having arrived late in the evening from my most recent trip to California Transformed, but in ways not yet fully detectable by me Aware of a stirring Unsure what it meant or what to do with it Have you ever been in that space Felt the longing... Pulling toward something new... Knowing you don't belong where you are And yet... Unsure Uncertain Unclear       What does it look like? What's my...

How to be empowered NOW

"I have a past, but I don't live there anymore."   Earlier today I heard my coach say, "If you really are committed to producing the kind of future that you want; don't stand in judgment of the past that you didn't want.  It doesn't work that way." I remember the first time I was exposed to this idea.  It was 2016 and I was in the room at a week long coaching certification being held in Los Angeles. I was pretty stuck in my attachment to...

3 steps to quitting

I recently read an article by Erika Bruhn.  She says, "The truth is, quitting isn't really giving up. Maybe, when you look further, the words "I quit" could really reflect a person's self-awareness, mindfulness, and emotional intelligence. What if we, as friends, family, and colleagues, looked at the act of quitting as empowered, one that creates space for self-reflection, dreaming, and appreciation for what no longer serves someone? Could the...

6 steps to reinvention

"For what it's worth, it's never too late to be whoever you want to be." -F. Scott Fitzgerald It’s NEVER too late to begin again... To try something new... To walk away from your current reality and boldly step into the unknown...  It might be scary, but it’s NEVER too late. You can create, recreate, write, scribble out, and rewrite your life as many times as you want. Do not let anyone who gave up on what’s possible for them tell you...

What if you just decided?

What if you decided to put down your stories? What if you decided that everything happening in your life was happening for your highest good? What if you decided to no longer label anything as good or bad or right or wrong and decided that things simply were? What if you decided to allow your emotions and circumstances to flow over you, around you, and through you; instead of desperately clinging to them in an attempt to control and manipulate...
