How is your year going lovely?
We are midway through this wintery month and I want to know, how are you doing?
Last year, we talked a bit about choosing a word to aim for the coming year.
Now that we are a few weeks into this new decade, how does your word fit?
Some year, my seemingly fabulous word falls to the wayside as the days go by.
I am having an absolutely delicious week and hope you are too.
It feels like life is turning a corner in many ways and I am filled with deep gratitude.
We have been talking about the close of 2019 a lot around here.
As we near the end of 2019, I am seeing a lot of signs saying the end of the decade is here and how are you going to make the most of the 20s.
Well, this isn’t one of those posts.
This post is to remind you that you have permission to keep going as you are if you want to.
A quick check-in for my Introverted Folk.
Happy countdown to the end of 2019 season!
Family, friends, social gatherings galore...
Many of my clients are introverts, and this is not necessarily a set-up for success.
This post provides some tips to help ease that post-Turkey holiday hangover as we dive right in to the holiday death-spiral. Wheeeeeee!
As the lovely Miranda would say, "Such fun!".
So put on those elastic waist trousers, enjoy your feast, and read on for tips to make it through the resulting hangover before the spiral gets tighter!
A quick exercise to focus attention and start again!
How is everyone feeling today?
The weather has definitely shifted towards winter and I was not prepared this year.
Usually I celebrate the gray and the chill because it leads me to cozy blankets and tea.
But my heater is possibly broken and I just couldn't get warm.
A cold Andrea is a grumpy Andrea...
Wanna know what my least favourite 4-letter-word is?
I am a big believer that being nice is a negative action.
It doesn't do anyone any favours.
Nice is the very often the cause of anxiety...
As you may have guessed from reading my other posts recently, I love Autumn.
As much as I love the hint of chill in the air and the call to appreciate hibernation, it sometimes can lead to a decline in productivity.
That call to rest is strong these days.
All the hygge possibilities are calling my name...
Isn't Autumn delicious?
The changing colours, the slight chill in the air, the call to cozy and warmth.
Bring on the sweaters and scarves, I say!
With less than 100 days left in this decade (!), I want to invite you to bring attention to the harvest of wonderful fruit that you planted this year (and this decade!)...
A QUICK EXERCISE TO GROW (AND HAVE SOME FUN).
Happy Friday the 13th Lovelies!
As a day that is said to be unlucky (although I am having an amazing day), let's dive into the topic of growing pains.
What to do when the push to grow comes not from our choosing.
Those outside forces and friction that require us to change and adapt.
When it feels like the universe is raining down on us and we are barely treading water as is.
I feel you.
Have you tried turning it off and on again?
This post is also titled: What to do when things get ugly.
Do you feel flooded with futility?
Disconnect. Why bother. Negativity?
Sometimes, when things don't go according to plan.
Or worse, when the plan is thwarted by factors outside our control, it is easy to take a trip to distortion-land.
Tea loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
