love

*Think it Thursday* and love

All your kids need is love.

It’s easy to think that we need to do SO many things for our kids in order to ensure their success and happiness. It’s easy to let these expectations stress us out and take away from what’s most important.

Which is… love.

Your kids just want you there. They don’t need expensive things. They don’t need a home in perfect order. They don’t need to eat organic for every meal of the day.

What they need, is love. Unconditional, never ending, always meaningful – love.

Are you giving it to them?

Get rid of the unnecessary and focus on what matters most.  I’m working on doing the same.

Think about it.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

this is so much fun

It’s your *Think it Thursday* and this is so much fun!

Have I mentioned lately the importance of doing fun things in your life?

I used to think that was so frivolous.
I used to think, “Must be nice…. But I don’t have the time.”

The truth is- there is too little time in life NOT to have fun.

This week I started a new practice of writing down all the fun things I’ve built into my week and posting it by my bed. I see it every morning and every night. And every time I walk by.

My life is busy. 3 kids, my business, and all the craziness of life that creeps into the day.

But when I see that list, I get excited about all of those little things.

It might be a phone call you plan to have with a friend. Or picking up your favorite shampoo that’s on sale at Beauty Brands. Maybe it’s date night, or a walk, or choosing a paint color for your bedroom.

List everything you want to feel excited about.

Think about those things all through the week.

It’s magical.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

2 more lives

It’s *Think it Thursday* and 2 more lives…

This week 2 more women signed up to start coaching with me.
Do you know what this means?

It means they have made a decision that their life and happiness matters.

They are tired of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
They are tired of feeling like they aren’t doing enough.
They are fed up with being ineffective, stuck in a rut, and downright unhappy.

And so, they decided to bet on themselves.

It wasn’t easy for either of them.
It was hard for them to think about spending money on themselves and scary to fear that it wouldn’t really make a difference.
Can you relate?

They both said, “it’s not you, it’s me.”  “I’m just afraid I can’t make these changes.”
But both of them, decided to bet on themselves.

They chose to believe they could do it and that more was possible.
And of course, they can do it.
It’s not just possible, it’s happening.

How can you bet on yourself today? Maybe you’re ready for a call with me, and maybe you’re not.
Either way, take a minute to think about what needs to change and how you can make it happen.

How will you take a step toward eliminating overwhelm?
How will you feel more satisfied in your life and relationships?
How will you have more confidence in who you are as an amazing and vibrant woman?

Think about it.
Bet on yourself.
Make it happen. 

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

And YES – I do have a spot for you too.  Click here if you’re ready to have a conversation about it.

Incomplete

*Think it Thursday* and incomplete –

One of the biggest challenges of motherhood is being okay with incomplete.

It’s hard to measure success in the daily tasks of raising kids.

What’s clean one minute, is a disaster the next.

There are new problems every day.

You don’t feel like you’re checking many boxes.

I get it. And I help my clients with this all the time.

If you feel like you’re not getting anywhere, you’re probably frustrated and unfulfilled.

You wonder if what you’re doing is worthwhile.

And overtime, you may even wonder if you’re worthwhile.

It’s a trap I see women fall into all the time.

If you can relate, stop for a minute and think.

What if your worth and contribution is great, even without checking any boxes?
What if you are complete, even if the tasks around you aren’t?
What would be different if you felt confident that who you are matters?

And that you make a difference?

Think about it.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

the water is amazing

Woo hoo! It’s *Think it Thursday* and the water is amazing

I’m on vacation this week in Florida with my kids for Spring Break.
Wait, back up. I’m on a trip and my kids are on vacation 😉
(We all know how that goes, right?)

The water here is crazy bright blue! It’s gorgeous. The pictures are unbelievable.
I posted some pics on social media and sent some to friends too.
Everyone said, “Wow, enjoy that weather!”
“It looks perfect!”

In reality, when I took those pics it was in the 50s and windy.
We were freezing. I was wearing a sweatshirt and pants and the kid’s teeth were chattering.
But you’d never know it from the pictures.

It’s like when you see someone who seems to have it all together and you say, “How does she do it?”
Or you see a couple who looks happy and in love and you think, “Why isn’t my marriage like that?”
And you see a family laughing and perhaps you’re just wondering … “How do I keep my kids from fighting for 5 minutes?”

The picture is an illusion. And yet it’s real at the same time.
The beach was gorgeous. Breathtaking.
And freezing and slightly miserable too.

Your life is amazing and full of good.
And it’s full of frustration and heartache at the same time.

Enjoy what the picture has to offer and appreciate it.
And yet, don’t allow your brain believe that something is wrong with your life.
Your life is just as it should be.
Positive and negative and all of it.
That’s life. And it’s beautiful. Just like the water…

Have an amazing day, one thought at a time!
