Why Struggle If You Don’t Have To Struggle?

Why Struggle If You Don’t Have To Struggle?

I had a client come to me about 6 months ago looking for some balance. She wasn’t happy with the way her life was running. She was running her own business but didn’t feel like it was enough and in turn, the rest of her life was suffering as well.

Her mindset was off. She thought she was barely getting by. She had convinced herself that she didn’t have enough time or money to join a gym, that there was no way she could carve out any more time to spend with her kids, and that this chaos she was experiencing had to be the only way to have “all of this”.

(That’s the funny part…we kill ourselves to be “successful” but aren’t happy…so really, what’s the point?)

She also had this burning idea of how she could help other professionals in her industry to create more income through teaching them what she had done in her business…she just had no idea how to actually make that happen, so she came to me wanting help with it all.

All About You

All About You

We all want someone to be “all about us”, right?

To think we’re great. Watch our stories, read our posts, like our photos, watch our videos, and then talk to us in the background…you know in real life… and actually CARE what is happening in our worlds, in our minds, in our hearts. We want someone to pay attention. We want someone to want to be a part of our world.

And we want them to be up front about it, to tell us that they are into us. To tell us that they think we are marvelous. To never leave us guessing or assuming because they are just so damn clear with us about their feelings and intentions.
That’s basically the idea, right?

But then when we feel that way about someone else…we don’t tell them. We’re not clear. We give mixed signals. We stop liking their posts. We try to wait a certain number of minutes to respond to their messages or watch their story for fear of looking “too eager” or “too interested”.

Please stop and think about that for a minute. Continue reading “All About You”

What If You Just Did It Anyway?

What If You Just Did It Anyway?

So many people ask me how I get motivated to write, or go to the gym, or do my work even though I really don’t have anyone to answer to but myself.

And the answer is, I’m not always motivated.

I don’t always want to.

It’s not always convenient or exciting.

But I do it anyway.

Honestly, I don’t even allow myself another option anymore. Continue reading “What If You Just Did It Anyway?”

Transformation

Transformation

“I used to think it was some extravagant thing, but now I realize it’s just your life.”

I was talking with a client earlier this week about how her lifestyle has been shifting. Her perspective has changed and she now looks at life very different than she used to. She made a note that everyone should always work with me for at least six months because she thought she was making breakthroughs before but this is a whole new level.

I explained that it’s like a muscle. Being able to pay attention enough to actually SEE purely is not something you can just turn on like a switch, it’s something you must work at, strengthen everyday, test, flex, grow. Continue reading “Transformation”

Communication

Communication

Guys… she doesn’t know unless you tell her. That thing you wish she would do or the fact that it makes you sad if she leaves the house and doesn’t kiss you, she doesn’t know. Open up your mouth and tell her. Say the words. Because I promise you, she doesn’t know.

Ladies… He can’t read your mind. He doesn’t know what you want. He doesn’t know that little thing he does makes you want to scream. He doesn’t know that you long for him to come up behind you and wrap his arms around you. Open your mouth and tell him. Tell him what you need, what you want, what you feel like you’re missing.

I speak to people every day who don’t feel fulfilled, who aren’t happy, or think their relationship is missing something, and let me tell you…it is. Continue reading “Communication”

How I Start My Day

How I Start My Day

What do you start your day with each morning?

Me?

>Puppy snuggles because they make my heart happy and once the day gets going, I don’t always have a chance to stop and snuggle them when they want it.

>Journaling to clear my mind and get my creativity flowing. You can’t expect to control your thoughts when you don’t ever sort through them. That’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

>Visualization to keep my reality matching my dreams and to make sure the universe and I are on the same page about my desires. Because if you’re not clear about what you want, you’ll never get more.

>Reading something that makes me smile and sparks something deep within me. I don’t always spend a lot of time on this because I don’t need to. I read until I feel satisfied. And it’s rarely from the same book each day.

Value Your Time

Value Your Time

“A lack of planning on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on mine.”

^This was one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned over the years.

In my world, everything is intentional. I’m extremely “buttoned up” by nature. That doesn’t mean things are perfect, because they’re not. But it does mean that whatever is on my plate is always being handled and it’s always clear.

That’s always been a natural thing for me. But I used to let other people cause me to panic. Or question that. A lot.
