Bring on the Awesomeness!
I wish you all the best wishes for today is my birthday!!!
I like to celebrate different years by turning a page.
Closing a chapter of the previous year with a beautiful summary and with foreshadowing with what to expect.
Bring on the journal!
And although life is unpredictable, I am resilient and capable of growth.
What's your excuse?
My brain still thinks we are somewhere in June rather than being almost August!
When I take a moment to sit and think, my mind starts racing.
"How did we get here? Where did the time go? What are we going to do?!"
Basically, part of my brain really likes control. I bet you can relate.
Trick your brain into welcoming growth.
Today's blog is responding to a question that was submitted from a reader.
Bear with, this post is a wee bit rambly in places, but it resolves nicely at the end.
The question went something like this:
Dive into this exercise and find out!
I'm curious, are your expectations setting you up for success?
Sure! You think. I'm all for success!
Of course I know what I want.
But how many of us have taken the time to intentionally define what that looks like?
Celebrate Summer with me!
Happy Solstice Lovelies!
Welcome to Summer!
Here, for us folks that live in the Northern hemisphere, we arrive at that beautiful point in the year where we get to celebrate the light and prepare to welcome the coming darkness as days get shorter.
Gosh, I love celebrating.
It is a reminder to enter into the present and to connect again with reality as we move through life...
The Sad Truth About Autopilot.
Within the life coaching sphere, a word you hear thrown around a lot is "fulfillment".
It sounds a bit more relatable than "abundance" or "mindset" or "flow".
But what does it really mean?
And more importantly, why does it matter?
Be kind to your being and own your energy.
How is everyone feeling today?
I'm crawling back out of my cave after a beautiful weekend filled with song. I sing in a lovely women's choir and we had two performances this weekend.
I love performing.
When I was a child, I wanted to be an actress.
I adore being on stage and giving it my all.
Today, I am crawling back out of my cave because although I adore being present and creative - I am an introvert. I require space and time to process through the people and regain my energy.
Maybe you can relate?
Experiments in challenging perspective!
I'm curious, do you identify as a creature of habit?
Or do you tend to switch things up and go with the flow?
Often, we high achievers find a way that works for us and tend to stick to it, no?
Maybe Mrs. Bennet was on to something.
I started today with a wee bit of a tantrum, maybe you can relate?
How do you handle having an off day?
What would it take to turn it around?
What if I could wave a magic wand and poof!
All better? Wouldn't that be amazing?
When I ask myself those questions, the "all better" usually doesn't look too different on the outside from where I am at presently.
But on the inside - big difference.
Time to Slay that Imposter!
I want to touch on a fun topic today!
One which often comes hand in hand with perfectionism.
Our sneaky friend Imposter Syndrome! Woo Hoo!!
Most people can relate in some way with that 'plummeting of confidence' feeling of showing up and that self-doubt creeping in.
The fear of being exposed as a fraud...
That "I'm not good/smart/proper/worth enough to be here/doing this presentation/teaching/talking" feeling...
Tea loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
