fragile

My client was feeling really fragile yesterday.

She didn’t like that she felt that way.

She was thinking her life was a bit of a mess.

And she didn’t like that either.

Feeling fragile or having your life seem like “a mess,” isn’t a problem.

It’s only a problem when we make it mean that we aren’t strong or capable of handling our life.

Personally, I feel fragile pretty often.

And my life… often looks really messy.

I have to remind myself that it’s okay for me to be human and to feel and be exactly the way I am.

What about you? Can you relate to feeling this way?

If so, I wonder if you can allow yourself to be human today and not make it mean anything about how strong you are.

I wonder if you can totally drop the ball on a lot of things, and still have a handle on a lot of things that are important.

I wonder if today you can see the good and accept the “messy” parts of your life as perfect the way they are.

Think about it.

Have a beautiful weekend- you deserve it!

Is there anyone out there?

My client Sue wonders if she will ever really find someone to be her partner.

She had a great marriage for years. It was happy and connected. She loved her life.

Why did it have to change? How will she find that same happiness now?

Will she always be alone?

These are the things she wonders.

You may wonder these things too.

I know what it’s like to wonder if your life can really be what you want it to be. I know what it’s like to have a drastic change in your life and feel extreme loss and sadness. I know the feeling of lonely. And I know that lonely is hard.

I also know that life has shown me time and again (for me and my clients) that life is happening exactly as it’s supposed to.

I know that the worst things ironically turn out to be the best things.

I know that if you decide you want happiness in your life – you can and will create it.

I’m excited for you and all that your future holds.

It’s going to be magical. Don’t you think?

Have an amazing day – one thought at a time!

Butter + Chex

My mom worked a lot when I was a kid – doing whatever it took to make ends meet.

I didn’t get to spend nearly as much time with her as I wanted.

But the time we spent I always loved.

I remember one night she came home and said if we got ready for bed quickly she was going to make a treat. My brother and I were so excited.

She put Corn Chex in a bowl and poured melted butter on it, then topped it with salt.

Like popcorn, but not.

I think it took her 2 minutes to make the whole thing – but it was so fun.

A treat on a weeknight. Eating it with my mom. I bet she thought nothing of it, but over 3 decades later and I still remember. The excitement, the connection. Feeling loved and important.

A few days ago my daughter put her cupcake apron on and we made the Chex treat. She thought it was the best thing in the world. Especially since we wore our aprons and made it together.

The way my daughter talks about it you would think it was a great bake-off.

All it took was a box of Chex, butter, salt, and 5 minutes of my time.

Those little moments to connect speak volumes. Sometimes we think we need to do something big or extravagant. Or we compare what we are doing with others. We don’t need to do any of that.

Create a moment, and enjoy it to the fullest.

Have a beautiful weekend- you deserve it.

that’s inspiring

Yesterday was amazing.

The women in The Coaching Collective were connecting with each other about their dream come true life and business.

They shared their personal values with each other. They shared the things they really want in their life and what matters most to them.

They talked about how they would make those things a reality.

How awesome is that? Connecting with others about making your dreams come to fruition?!

So inspiring.

How often do you think about what you want in life?
How often do you actually believe it will happen?
What steps do you take toward realizing it?

Thinking about it and believing it are the first (and most important steps).

Are you a coach who wants to join The Coaching Collective?
The waitlist is ready for you.

For today – think about what you want in your life.

Ask yourself, what if that’s really possible?

It’s fun to dream. I highly recommend it.

Have an amazing day – one thought at a time!
