I can’t trust you

One of the most important aspects of self confidence, is the ability to trust yourself.

Trusting yourself to be able to make a decision, without second guessing constantly.

Trusting yourself to have your own back, rather than putting yourself down.

And trusting yourself to follow through on what you say you’ll do.

Do you follow through for you?
Do you show up for you?

If you’re feeling guilty just reading these questions – here’s what I’ve got for you.

You can decide today to become a person who follows through for you.

You can set yourself up for success by picking 1 small thing each day that you’ll follow through on.

Today I promise I’ll give myself a 10-minute break from the chaos of the day.
Today I promise I’ll walk for 5 minutes around the block to get moving.
Today I promise I’ll eat something amazing for my body.
Today I’ll say 3 kind things to myself.

The promise should be small – a no brainer that you’ll do it.

Every time you follow through, you’re telling yourself that you respect you and that you will be true to your word.

You’re developing a relationship of trust, that will build self-confidence.

What promise will you make?

Say it out loud.
Email it to me.
Do it.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!

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!
