I have had several people recently tell me in their own unique ways that they felt something like a bouncing ball in life. Trying to juggle work, school, health and family responsibilities can be overwhelming, leaving someone to feel out of balance, disconnected and unfocused. Many of us can get caught up in busy and active lives. We start treading water and just surviving rather than making purposeful choices and actions with ourselves and others. This can be slippery slope in any relationship. I think it’s important to take a quick assessment every few months – check in on your priorities and values and what’s important to you right now. Have you...

Shopping for a Coach?

I love shopping! I don’t care what it is, I’ll offer to help my friends shop. Need a car? Oh, let me go online and research for you! Need to find the perfect dress? Please, let me go with you! Yes, I love to shop! Shopping for a coach? Well, maybe not so much.  But, I look at this this way…. When it comes to choosing a life coach, finding the right one for you is like finding the right running shoes. Sometimes, off and running, you find a pair that fit just right.  But, sometimes you have to try on a couple pair and compare. Still other times, you have to run around the block a couple times. Sometimes people finally cultivate the courage to...

Feel the fear…

Feel the fear…

What is your experience of fear? Is it fear that you will fail, or arguably more common, that you will succeed? Is it keeping you small, feeding itself on the negative self-talk of ‘not good enough’, ‘not accepted’, or ‘not loved’? What if, instead of STOP, whenever fear showed up it meant GO FOR IT! There is only one antidote to fear – and that is to do the very thing you fear. Don’t wait for courage to appear to overcome the fear. Courage comes from acknowledging the fear and acting in spite of it. Until you take this step, the fear will be the monster that lurks under the bed, or the stalker lying in wait in the woods,...

Be Yourself… REALLY Be Yourself

Be Yourself… REALLY Be Yourself

You know, it’s pretty hard to live with passion when you’re just not be being true to yourself. If we feel compelled to act or behave or be what we believe others expect of us or would like from us, then we aren’t being true to ourselves and chances are we aren’t all that happy, either. We are stifling our own energy, creativity, spontaneity, contribution, and love among other qualities that as a whole are special or unique to ourselves. If we have to become someone else just to fit in or get along, then haven’t we sacrificed the very essence of our own identity? Anyone can really fit in if they really want to. But how many people really...

Stuck in a Pattern you can’t get out of

You will never know who you really are and what power you have if you never take a chance. There’s a part of you that is always fearful and only looks in the short term that screams murder when you want to do something that is potentially threatening to your survival. Let’s call it Mini You because that’s what it really is: the minimal version of you. According to Mini You a lot of things are scary: bungee jumping, driving a fast car, scuba diving but also a new job, a better relationship, going for your dream to live in another country, trusting people, sharing with others, opening up to name but a few. Mini You wants you to stay away from “risks” and do...

Responding or Reacting to the World in Crisis

Responding or Reacting to the World in Crisis

  “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” – Viktor Frankl There have been many natural catastrophes that have occurred in recent months, on our shores and across the globe. Floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, erupting volcanoes, tsunamis and civil wars that we see nightly on the news and which we feel compelled to offer some response to. The proliferation of communication technologies ensure that we are confronted hourly with scenes of despair and destruction, and also of hope and miracles, and being human, we will have varying degrees of...
