do you read these?

It’s *Think it Thursday* and do you read these blogs?

I hope you do.

Last week a woman emailed me asking about coaching. She told me that she gets more out of these short weekly blogs than she does her therapy appointments.

I was so happy to hear it! Not because of me.

(After all, I’m just the vessel for these messages.)

I was happy because she is taking the time to read them and think about how it pertains to her. She’s allowing them to make a difference in her life. The email is the same for all of the thousands of people who receive it – but she is allowing it in.

Do you allow them in? Do you open yourself up to growth and change?

I hope so. You’re amazing. You deserve good things in your life.

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!

don’t blink

It’s *Think it Thursday* and don’t blink –

My friend Sarah is getting ready to send her triplets off to college soon. They have just 1 more year at home and then… they are off!

She’s feeling that pull to make the most of every day and every moment. And not just make the most of it, but to REALLY enjoy it.

I was telling her that I’m doing the same. I don’t always get to have my kids on holidays or at every important moment and it reminds me that when I do have them, I really want to appreciate it.

Even when my daughter is pulling at me…

Or my son wants to lay by me in bed when I’m exhausted…

Or when my teenager needs extra help with an audition (and I think the dishes need to be done instead…)

Being a mom is a lot of work, and I’m so glad I got the job.

I’m going to try to enjoy every moment.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

World’s Okayest Mom

It’s your special *Think it Thursday* and Happy Mother’s Day Week!

(And I’ve got something awesome at the end of this email for you too…)

But first, this.

My neighbor has the best bumper sticker that says, “World’s okayest mom,” and I love it.

It’s like she’s giving herself permission to be human and still feel awesome at the same time.

It makes me laugh because I can totally relate.

I’m not the best and I’m not the worst. I’m totally okay with being okay. I love my kids and some days, that’s about all I’ve got. I make a sincere effort and yet I never execute things perfectly.

Yesterday my client Jill and I talked about the fact that her being the “perfect” mom for her kids is not ideal. It’s not best for them. It’s not really supposed to be that way.

The best thing for her kids – is for her to be her (with all her flaws and weaknesses.)

That’s what they are supposed to have, and that’s what they’ve got.

You’re amazing Mama.

Please don’t let your flaws take away from your awesomeness. They can’t (unless you let them).

Here’s your gift!
