do you like yourself?

It’s *Think it Thursday* and do you like yourself?

Last week my client Jenny was listing her accomplishments.

We started talking about things like graduating from college, getting awards, and winning medals.

Then we decided to shift gears to the invisible accomplishments. The ones that no one else can see, but that equal the real wins in her life.

We dove right in to the personal work she’s been doing since we started coaching.

And like magic, this came out of her mouth…

“I’ve actually learned to like myself again.”

Yes. Magic.

The awards and medals, couldn’t hold a candle to this.

When she hired me a few months ago, she was terrified to invest in herself. She was worried she wouldn’t follow through. She actually cried as she made the decision. She knew she needed to change, but was afraid to bet on herself.

And yet, she did it. She was afraid, and she did it anyway.

And here she is, just a few months later, with a totally different relationship with herself.

She’s more confident. Happier. More hopeful. More grounded.

Are you willing to bet on you in life?

Do you invest in you?

Do you like you?

If not, perhaps something needs to change.

And the only one who can really make that change – is you.

I say go for it.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

crying buckets

*Friday Love Note* and crying buckets.

The other night I was crying buckets.

Yep.

Not just a tear or two, but really truly – a torrential downpour.

So many people don’t realize that going through divorce means grieving the loss of what you had and what you wanted. It’s letting go of a dream and a hope. It’s a lot for the soul to handle.

Even when you’ve “done your work” and moved on in your life, sometimes that grief will bubble up – it’s totally normal.

And sometimes, it’s okay to cry buckets.

Tears are cleansing and healing, so make time for them.

Allow them.

Talk with a friend.

Take good care of that precious soul of yours.

Have an amazing weekend – you deserve it!

a plan

It’s your *Think it Thursday* and a plan.

How often do you plan your time?

Do you love to plan? Hate to plan? Fight against it? Feel restricted?

I can relate to all of these statements to be honest.

Planning and organizing my life is not something that comes naturally to me.
I crave order and systems, and yet I fight against it.

But, I’m doing it anyway.

As I’ve been planning more, here’s what I’ve found:

Planning never seems exciting, but I do it anyway. (and feel awesome afterward)

When I have a plan, I waste less time.
When I plan my “do nothing time,” I enjoy that time much more.

Planning makes my life easy.
Planning takes the weight of worry off my shoulders.

When I say, “I’m too busy to plan or be organized” – I’m wrong.

Planning is the remedy to busyness.

Let’s get you going.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!

the best part about your life

*Friday Love Note* and the best part about your life.

What’s the best part about your life?

How often do you think about it?

One of my favorite moments in life is when I’m in the car with my three kids and they are all getting along. We are usually singing out loud and laughing.

It doesn’t always happen, but when it does – it feels like magic.

I tell them how much I love that I get to be with them. I feel so much joy and gratitude in that moment.

I know that no matter what happens in life or what is challenging, nothing can take away from that moment and that feeling.

Think about what’s amazing in your life. Appreciate it. Live those moments to the fullest.

Have an amazing weekend- you deserve it!

listen please

*Think it Thursday* and listen please

My 7-year old daughter is a girl who knows what she wants.
And she’s not afraid to say it.
(It’s amazing)

The other day she was telling me about a girl at school that’s really mean. I asked her if maybe that girl is unhappy and that’s why she’s mean. I was trying to get her to see the other girl’s point of view.

And THIS is what my daughter said.

“Mom, you’re always trying to mentor me. You ask me all of these questions and it turns into a session (lol, right?).”

“Mom, what I really want is for you to just listen to me.”

And I heard her loud and clear. There are times and ways that I can teach her, but sometimes I just need to listen. She wants to come to me and connect. She wants to say how she’s feeling or what her experience is, without me trying to change it.

I can do that. I can listen.

How about you? Do you listen?

Have a great day – one thought at a time!
