life’s disappointments

It’s time for *Think it Thursday* and life’s disappointments.

We all experience pain and disappointment.

Disappointment that our life didn’t turn out the way we wanted.

Pain in watching our kids suffer. Frustration in not having or achieving what we want in life, despite major efforts.

It’s normal, and yet it doesn’t make it easy.
All the pain we experience, is pain we cause with our brain.

I know it doesn’t seem to be true, but it is.
And most of the time it’s because we are believing things should be different than they are.

My son shouldn’t have autism.
My husband should want the same things that I want.

I shouldn’t have this autoimmune illness.

Sometimes reality is a tough pill to swallow.
But refusing to swallow it – makes it even worse.

Accepting reality of what’s happening and believing it’s as it should be, is one of the most magical things you’ll do.

You’ll stop fighting against what’s happening and focus all of your energy toward appreciating, problem-solving, and loving. And you just might find that there are some really amazing things happening… that you couldn’t see before.

What’s happening should be happening, because it is.

There are reasons for everything that we can’t possibly see.

Life make’s sense when you look backwards at it, but we have to live it forward.

Go forward. Trust it. I know you can do it.

1 year ago

It’s time for *Think it Thursday* and 1 year ago.

Exactly 1 year ago today I launched my book!

And because of support from followers like you – it became a bestseller within 24 hours.

As I’ve heard from so many of you over the last year about how the book has changed your life, I’ve felt even more gratitude for the opportunity to write it.
And it’s also become clear to me that the book, didn’t change any lives at all.

The women who bought it and opened up a desire to learn from it – changed their own lives.

The book is there, but not everyone’s lives are changed.
Changing our lives requires us to be ready.
It requires openness.
It requires us to decide that we deserve better in our lives.

Do you deserve better?  Do you deserve to live a fulfilling and happy life?
Do you deserve to feel good about who you are?

I say yes, you absolutely do.
I hope you agree.

It’s been an honor to share my book with you.
Thank you.

I love all of you so much.

Have an amazing day, one thought at a time!

(Oh, and click here if you want your own copy and the workbook too)

I can’t trust you

One of the most important aspects of self confidence, is the ability to trust yourself.

Trusting yourself to be able to make a decision, without second guessing constantly.

Trusting yourself to have your own back, rather than putting yourself down.

And trusting yourself to follow through on what you say you’ll do.

Do you follow through for you?
Do you show up for you?

If you’re feeling guilty just reading these questions – here’s what I’ve got for you.

You can decide today to become a person who follows through for you.

You can set yourself up for success by picking 1 small thing each day that you’ll follow through on.

Today I promise I’ll give myself a 10-minute break from the chaos of the day.
Today I promise I’ll walk for 5 minutes around the block to get moving.
Today I promise I’ll eat something amazing for my body.
Today I’ll say 3 kind things to myself.

The promise should be small – a no brainer that you’ll do it.

Every time you follow through, you’re telling yourself that you respect you and that you will be true to your word.

You’re developing a relationship of trust, that will build self-confidence.

What promise will you make?

Say it out loud.
Email it to me.
Do it.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!

a plan

It’s your *Think it Thursday* and a plan.

How often do you plan your time?

Do you love to plan? Hate to plan? Fight against it? Feel restricted?

I can relate to all of these statements to be honest.

Planning and organizing my life is not something that comes naturally to me.
I crave order and systems, and yet I fight against it.

But, I’m doing it anyway.

As I’ve been planning more, here’s what I’ve found:

Planning never seems exciting, but I do it anyway. (and feel awesome afterward)

When I have a plan, I waste less time.
When I plan my “do nothing time,” I enjoy that time much more.

Planning makes my life easy.
Planning takes the weight of worry off my shoulders.

When I say, “I’m too busy to plan or be organized” – I’m wrong.

Planning is the remedy to busyness.

Let’s get you going.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!

listen please

*Think it Thursday* and listen please

My 7-year old daughter is a girl who knows what she wants.
And she’s not afraid to say it.
(It’s amazing)

The other day she was telling me about a girl at school that’s really mean. I asked her if maybe that girl is unhappy and that’s why she’s mean. I was trying to get her to see the other girl’s point of view.

And THIS is what my daughter said.

“Mom, you’re always trying to mentor me. You ask me all of these questions and it turns into a session (lol, right?).”

“Mom, what I really want is for you to just listen to me.”

And I heard her loud and clear. There are times and ways that I can teach her, but sometimes I just need to listen. She wants to come to me and connect. She wants to say how she’s feeling or what her experience is, without me trying to change it.

I can do that. I can listen.

How about you? Do you listen?

Have a great day – one thought at a time!
