Impact

“If I wouldn’t have hired you when I did, I probably wouldn’t still be alive”.

I will never forget the feeling of hearing that statement from one of my clients. It knocked me back in my seat. I remember crying when we got off the phone because of the impact he made on me during that conversation.

I didn’t know he was close to giving up on living when we started our work together.

I knew he had goals, he needed structure and we had a lot of mindset work to do, but I didn’t know suicidal thoughts were at play. During the first few months of working with a new client, we spend a lot of time going deep, like really deep into the dark shadows of self. We uncover fears and limiting patterns, unhealthy habits and space that needs room to breathe. Sometimes those are just around performance, professional growth, communication, self-worth, rebelling against structure, lacking a plan, etc. Continue reading “Impact”

Reviews

Reviews

Do you only leave reviews when you’re unpleased?

When something didn’t go your way or you feel like you were mistreated?

It seems that there is a large group of people who only utilize the review option online when they are pissed and need to rip an establishment a new one over something.

Is that you?

Or do you leave reviews when you have a GOOD experience too? Continue reading “Reviews”

Validation

Validation

Are you calculating your own worth based off outside validation?

Before you write this off as “Nope, not me” and keep scrolling… Hear me out because this one can be pretty tricky.

When I say outside validation, I’m referring to a number of things. From approval, acceptance, and praise for your personal work, thoughts, or actions- to feeling whole based off the number of people who are seeking your energy, your advice, or your attention. Continue reading “Validation”

Ringside

Ringside

Having a ring side seat to watch my clients win is something I’ll never get tired of witnessing.

It’s truly an honor.

It’s an honor to be entrusted with their most vulnerable moments, their fears, their worries, their losses, and their moments they see as “not good enough” or not making it.

You’ve Got To Find What Makes You Tick

You’ve Got To Find What Makes You Tick

I often hear from people about how they have a hard time staying motivated, or consistent, or moving forward versus moving around and around in circles.

And I have many questions to get to the bottom of why that keeps happening, instead of what most expect which is for me just to throw a pre-written plan at them and tell them to just use that.

You see, cookie-cutter responses have never worked for me and it’s been my experience that they don’t really work for other people either. But most will just keep accepting that type of advice over and over, continuing to feel like they’re not making real progress (not long-lasting at least) and wondering what must be wrong with them because none of these things are working.

The Morning

The Morning

Setting the stage for your day is literally one of the BIGGEST things you can do for yourself. It’s a freaking game changer, that’s for sure.

I feel like in several posts I’ve made, almost every training, and more conversations than I could even begin to count, having a morning routine is a topic of discussion. It’s something that’s a constant piece and something I highly suggest. So, in this week’s episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we’re talking all about how to start your day on YOUR terms.

Intentional Shopping

Intentional Shopping

Are you one of those people who only gets certain things for certain stores?

Because I am.

I frequent Trader Joe’s and Aldi more than anything BUT neither of them have the oats I like so I go to Dierbergs for those and for fage yogurt because I’m obsessed. AND Annie’s Burritos because also obsessed. (OH, and the local produce stand because they’re unbeatable on produce. Plus it’s the cutest place ever and makes me so happy!) Then there are items that I refuse to purchase anywhere besides Sam’s Club because the price point is just too good to pass up. I mean, I can get a massive bag of coffee beans at Sam’s for roughly the same price as a small, off brand bag at a regular grocery store and I just am not about that life.

I think we all have our things. Things we like from certain places for certain reasons. Continue reading “Intentional Shopping”

The Ripple Effect and Its Impact

The Ripple Effect and Its Impact

I’ve spoken about the ripple effect before and will continue to do so as it’s such a beautiful way to see the power of your actions, your words, your intentions.

Well, this morning one of my long time clients sent me a message sharing a win that one of her clients sent to her. It was thanking her for teaching her the Wheel of Intentional Living. It was explaining how different her life is now that she’s started making her mornings a priority and how powerful the act of consistent journaling has become in her world. Continue reading “The Ripple Effect and Its Impact”

JAM

JAM

I made jam!

Yep. jam. I canned it up beautifully too.

It was my first “real” canning experience. I was a bit intimidated. I’ve had the supplies for years and have used my cans for herbs, sauces with short shelf life, etc. But to can for real for real, I was scared.

Anyway. I did it and I was successful which felts like quite an accomplishment, to be honest.

So, why did I decide to jam it up last night you ask? Continue reading “JAM”
