Can you recognize your own patterns?
I have been fascinated by patterns for a while now.
When you are able to see the same situations play over and over again in your own life, and you wonder; why is it that life sends me the same story time after time?
“I always end up with a boss that has no boundaries” or, “My partners always take me for granted” or, “Every time this happens, I feel anxious”.
It’s like no matter where you go, there you are.
When would you rather work on things? (business, marriage, health, finances, etc…) when it’s “sunny” or in the middle of a storm?
I know the answer for me was not the storm.
I know I want to work on things while it’s sunny so that when the storm comes, I’ve got plenty of energy, resources and vitality to ride the waves of the storm.
I also know working on things while it’s sunny is fun, light and easier.
Sleep, is a big subject of conversation in my coaching calls and to be honest, within myself.
In order to determine how a patient is doing psychologically, a therapist asks about their sleep. Because the sleep is the reflection of the emotional body.
Not surprisingly, when a person is going through high levels of stress, emotional turmoil, grief, change, health issues, etc., the sleep tends to suffer.
I’m craving connection and presence. To myself, to my life, to the things I do – without distractions– to meet the eyes of my son when he desperately wants my attention, and to notice spontaneous beautiful things that are happening right in front of me… but that the screen in front of my face doesn’t let me see…
Started going for walks, and then got too busy to continue?
Despite your best intentions of keeping to the goal, putting it in your calendar, telling others to keep you accountable…there was always something a bit more pressing.
If you are completely honest with yourself, while you would love to do those daily walks, deep inside you don’t believe it’s THAT important.
There is a strong built-in habit within you that has you convinced that if it is “just for you or about you”, it can wait.
Everything I do, I do it with purpose.
Let me explain to you why I designed my coaching program to be 12 months –
Simply put: to help you build the muscle of COMMITMENT.
When you are living with the consequences of lack of commitment, you live with a long list of “wish it was better” and, a lot of “wishes” in general, that you never quite see coming to reality.
I am passionate about giving. I also love sharing the things I love having, using, reading in my life and I decided that this year I would share with you some of my favourite things in case you are looking at gifting yourself something nice this Christmas.
These also make amazing gifts for those special in your life. I believe the best gifts to give are those I would love to receive!
Here is my curated gift guide:
What if you could show up into your own life as mom, as a professional, as a wife, as a human, fully excited and with a strong sense that you are doing enough in each of those areas?
With full conviction that you are enough.
Despite what your perfectionist mind tells you, the truth is that it can be possible.
Michelle Obama taught me something I didn’t know about myself. I was listening to one of her interviews on t.v. shortly after she published her book “Becoming” and I heard her say to the journalist that when she experienced infertility she felt inadequate. I...
