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...
What does "done" look like for you?
Sometimes sitting down to write a blog post feels like a monkey banging on the keys.
Ooo Ooo Oooo. Eeee Eeee Eeeeeee. Smash, crash!
And voila - a blog post.
In starting the creative process, I always begin by typing at random.
Navigate media with intention.
There certainly is a lot of heavy in the media this week.
It seems that some people are making some scary choices (and I'm not talking about Game of Thrones).
Social media and the news are full of head-shaking sadness and disappointment. How do we safely move through this sadness when our habit is to turn to social media daily?
Many of us check social media throughout the day as a quick dopamine hit.
Are you Using failure as an excuse?
Last week we talked about forming a new habit.
How did your new habit work out?
Were you able to stick to it?
Did you give up because you forgot one day and why bother continuing because you are just a failure anyways?
One Little trick to magically improve your life!
I have a question for y'all today:
What habit would you most love to magically acquire?
By habit, I mean "a settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up." (thanks Oxford!)
A window into happiness
Let's talk about happiness!
At Life Coach Online, we are a big fan of strength.
There are many different profiling surveys around for personality and character: Myers-Briggs, CliftonStrengths, Enneagram, Hogwarts Sorting Hat, for example.
Important note, I am totally a Hufflepuff.
Survey the garden of your life.
Wishing you a glorious May!
Isn't there is something so deliciously wonderful about Spring. The newness, the hope, the earth bringing forth potential abundance!
The season reminds us to plant the seeds that will lead to the desired harvest.
A gentle reminder that action is called for to bring forth fruit.
Tea-loving awesomeness. Challenging perfectionism.
