that’s inspiring

Yesterday was amazing.

The women in The Coaching Collective were connecting with each other about their dream come true life and business.

They shared their personal values with each other. They shared the things they really want in their life and what matters most to them.

They talked about how they would make those things a reality.

How awesome is that? Connecting with others about making your dreams come to fruition?!

So inspiring.

How often do you think about what you want in life?
How often do you actually believe it will happen?
What steps do you take toward realizing it?

Thinking about it and believing it are the first (and most important steps).

Are you a coach who wants to join The Coaching Collective?
The waitlist is ready for you.

For today – think about what you want in your life.

Ask yourself, what if that’s really possible?

It’s fun to dream. I highly recommend it.

Have an amazing day – one thought at a time!

coming back to life

I’m coming back to life.

No, actually – I came back to life all in one day – just like that.

Last week, after months of struggling, I finally had that magical moment of clarity with my coach about what I need to do.

Within hours I felt myself waking up, feeling like myself again, and flowing with passion about my purpose in life.

Do you know that feeling?

Here’s what happened…

In 2017 I created an offshoot of my business based on what I thought I was “supposed” to do.

The experts in my field told me I should. I was turning away from my passion.

I tried to talk myself into it saying it was a worthy cause combined with a brilliant business plan.

The experts know what they are talking about, right?!

What do I know?

Turns out, I know a lot. I know what is genuine for me. I know what feels like the right move for me in my life and my business. I know what my true genius and passion is. And when I stay true to that – everything works.

Are you doing what you’re “supposed” to be doing, but feeling bogged down, burned out and frustrated? Really think about it.

What’s it like to think about doing what you want instead?

Doing what feels right to you?

Doing what feels like your authentic self?

Ask yourself that, and feel the energy. Really, just feel it.

Isn’t that the kind of energy you want guiding you in life?

I do. 100%

I wondered why I wasn’t myself for so long. I was pushing through and gearing up, but the light inside was always flickering. It’s easy to fool myself because I still stay positive and smile and muster up the energy I need. But inside… it just wasn’t working.

In that moment last week – the light came back.

What can you do to get your light back? What do you really want to do to stay true to you, your desires and your genius? And what will it be like to live life from that energy?

Think about it. You deserve it.

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!

it’s okay if you don’t like me

It’s *Think it Thursday* and it’s okay if you don’t like me –

My son didn’t want to go to school.

He was mad at me when I said that no fever means… he’s going to school.
He begged, and he pleaded. He tried to make me feel guilty.

I started to feel annoyed.
But I knew that the only reason I was feeling annoyed – was because of what I was thinking.

I was thinking that he shouldn’t beg and plead. I was thinking that it “shouldn’t be this hard.”
I was wanting him to like me and approve of my parenting (funny when I say it out loud, right?!)
I was arguing with reality.

Of course he would beg and plead – he’s 13 and he wants his way.
Of course parenting isn’t easy.

And of course, sometimes he just won’t like me. And maybe that’s okay.

I told him that I love him, and he’s going to school, and it’s okay if he doesn’t like me.
I will love him anyway.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!

you’re going to be okay

*Think it Thursday* and you’re going to be okay –

Today’s one of those days that I’m getting personal.

I’m speaking to those of you who feel you’re in a dark place, stuck, and wondering how you will make it through whatever challenge you are facing.

You may be feeling fear and worry that things won’t get better in your life.

I know just how you feel.

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I’ve been redesigning my life and creating a new normal over the last few years as I’m navigating life as a single mom. I’ve been managing the ups and downs of chronic fatigue and trying to keep the faith that it will get better.

I’ve been forging ahead and yet – I’m sort of breathing a sigh of relief lately.  I feel that sense of, wow I made it through – and I’m still standing.  I’m still moving forward.

I remember feeling so much fear and experiencing deep sadness.
I remember so much uncertainty and wishing it would all just go away.

I’ve been putting one foot in front of the other and it wasn’t until recently that I had an appreciation for how much I’ve come through and what I’ve overcome.  Not because of me, but because of the possibilities that life allows us.

Within you is the ability to overcome every challenge in front of you.  Even when it’s not easy.

And believe me – it never feels easy. 

If you’re reading this and feeling that you can’t keep going– I understand.
If you’re wondering if you’ll make it through – I understand.
If you’re thinking the end of this challenge should be sooner rather than later – I totally understand.

And yet I promise you – you can handle this challenge in front of you.  

You are capable, and you are strong.  

You were designed to overcome this challenge.

Your faith, your strength, and your courage will come together as a force of nature.  You’ll do it.  I promise.

Sending you extra love today.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!
