It is a juggling act to keep my shiFt intact. One of my balls could drop at anytime. Summer schedule added mayhem on top of my already stuffed schedule. And daylight savings did not add an extra hour to my day. With so much summer fun-shine, I lost time. Sound familiar? Quite frankly, I am not where I thought I would be mid year. My enoughitis (inflammation of thoughts of not doing or being enough) is flaring up big time… I should have saved more money I should have spent mor
What ties does food have to your romantic relationships? Friendships? Family? 🥗 I eat multiple times everyday like clockwork — by myself, with friends, family and partners. The ways food affect my daily life and relationships goes deeper than I realized. It started as a kid and it attached at a physical and emotional level. A feeling was generated by my first cookie. For some it is indifference. For me it was a warm fuzzy feeling from my chemical reaction to it and a warm f
11 days off social media and the best staycation! Have you ever had one? I wanted to be economically responsible and I couldn’t get my shiFt together to plan anything, so we stayed home and unplugged. It was up there with my top best vacations (Kauai, Hawaii is #1)! . I am dedicated and committed to optimizing my balance of home-life-work! I cannot believe how much energy became available without checking my social media or being a prisoner to my phone. I played, I swam, I sl
Hang out with who makes you happy! Clear out emotional relationships that no longer are of benefit. If you don’t feel good when you are with someone, DON’T BE WITH THEM! Out with the stale energy in with the vibrant energy. ❤️ my running buddy Breaker #clarity #claritypeacepower #connectingwithpositivity #happy
I’m sitting writing this as my kids are softly playing, and the television is on in the background. I grab my laptop anytime I can. Whether it is to peek at emails, write a sentence in my book, always hoping to catch up or contribute to something. Now, I know I shouldn’t admit how much I work. It’s not cool or empowHERing to admit what it really takes to make my life run. [To be honest, I’d much rather say I’m playing in the pool, or completely engulfed playing legos.] But I
Would you rather have confidence or competence? I hear athletes say all the time they want more confidence in order to perform better. I have clients call for sessions to have more self-confidence as they are in crisis with feelings of failure or they have done something wrong. Is a leader of confidence? A true leader is that of competency. Confidence is the idea of acting as if or portraying that you know what you are doing. Competency is about your true skill, ability,
They will only talk about things in the close future. They will not discuss anything beyond a few years away. When engaging in financial conversations they often switch the subject or continue to recommend you do not mix your finances… NOT your soulmate! You are discussing moving in together after dating for two years and they suggest you keep a storage unit for the things you are considering to give away that there isn’t room for in the shared house… NOT your soulmate! You w
It is okay to have anxiety. It is okay to have doubts. It is okay to be nervous. In fact, anxiety is a physiological or emotional response to perceived threat. Your mind is letting you know there is a concerning thought, and your body is responding. A response is good and means your body is strengthening. Anxiety is an indication that what you are doing is of interest, importance and you care. If you did not have anxiety, you would be non-responsive…. I like responsiveness an
The end of my vacation is the start of a clean slate. ShiFting back to reality is bitter sweet. The time away has been restful and refreshing and heading back home is exciting to start fresh. My time away was the pause button that I needed. A place to give appreciation for my gratitude of 2018 and draw attention to more of what is working. I thought the time away would have me planning and setting goals. I found myself doing nothing of the sort. I found it as a place of still
I have always been solution oriented, solving things, and all about getting things done.
What I am learning most as a woman, mom, psychologist, and healer is to LEAN BACK and give it some space.
If I give something 24 hours and there still a solution needed, often doing less is more.
What there is to do most, is NOTHING.
My desire to fix has been with the best of intentions. Altruistically or not, I have done it so I feel better.
What would happen
Focus on a solution ~ Draw attention to the possibilities
~ Create a plan of action Gratitude’s ~ What you have to be grateful for in the present Acknowledge the past ~ What happened, happened. It is not about you as a person or a reflection on your character. Nothing can be done any different than how it happened. So what is there to be done, nothing. It is a timing error the way mind is reading the events as the past as being something that is currently happening. If a wa
