2 more lives

It’s *Think it Thursday* and 2 more lives…

This week 2 more women signed up to start coaching with me.
Do you know what this means?

It means they have made a decision that their life and happiness matters.

They are tired of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
They are tired of feeling like they aren’t doing enough.
They are fed up with being ineffective, stuck in a rut, and downright unhappy.

And so, they decided to bet on themselves.

It wasn’t easy for either of them.
It was hard for them to think about spending money on themselves and scary to fear that it wouldn’t really make a difference.
Can you relate?

They both said, “it’s not you, it’s me.”  “I’m just afraid I can’t make these changes.”
But both of them, decided to bet on themselves.

They chose to believe they could do it and that more was possible.
And of course, they can do it.
It’s not just possible, it’s happening.

How can you bet on yourself today? Maybe you’re ready for a call with me, and maybe you’re not.
Either way, take a minute to think about what needs to change and how you can make it happen.

How will you take a step toward eliminating overwhelm?
How will you feel more satisfied in your life and relationships?
How will you have more confidence in who you are as an amazing and vibrant woman?

Think about it.
Bet on yourself.
Make it happen. 

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

And YES – I do have a spot for you too.  Click here if you’re ready to have a conversation about it.

you’re going to do something amazing

It’s your *FRIDAY LOVE NOTE* and you’re going to do something amazing

As a single mom, your life may seem less than ideal to you.
(And maybe you think that is an understatement.)

I know things didn’t turn out the way you planned.
You may spend a lot of time wishing things were different
Wanting things for your life and your kids, that you don’t have.

While this is normal, be careful not to stay there too long.

Because you’ll miss out on creating something amazing within your current circumstances.

This week I took my kids and 2 of their friends to Florida.
The water is amazing, and we can hardly believe our eyes.
Taking my kids to explore new places is really important to me so I’ve made it a priority.

I could say, “I can’t afford it.” I could say, “I don’t have time.” I could say, “it’s too hard for me to pull it off.”
But I can’t, I don’t, and It’s “too” won’t get me what I want.

Instead I focused on, “How can I?” “What’s possible?” “What if?”
And now, here we are with bright blue water that seems unreal.
Look at the water in these pics – it’s amazing, right?!

You can see and do something amazing too.

What do you want to make happen in your life?
How can you pull it off?
And what step will you take today?

Your life is full of possibilities.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it <3

the water is amazing

Woo hoo! It’s *Think it Thursday* and the water is amazing

I’m on vacation this week in Florida with my kids for Spring Break.
Wait, back up. I’m on a trip and my kids are on vacation 😉
(We all know how that goes, right?)

The water here is crazy bright blue! It’s gorgeous. The pictures are unbelievable.
I posted some pics on social media and sent some to friends too.
Everyone said, “Wow, enjoy that weather!”
“It looks perfect!”

In reality, when I took those pics it was in the 50s and windy.
We were freezing. I was wearing a sweatshirt and pants and the kid’s teeth were chattering.
But you’d never know it from the pictures.

It’s like when you see someone who seems to have it all together and you say, “How does she do it?”
Or you see a couple who looks happy and in love and you think, “Why isn’t my marriage like that?”
And you see a family laughing and perhaps you’re just wondering … “How do I keep my kids from fighting for 5 minutes?”

The picture is an illusion. And yet it’s real at the same time.
The beach was gorgeous. Breathtaking.
And freezing and slightly miserable too.

Your life is amazing and full of good.
And it’s full of frustration and heartache at the same time.

Enjoy what the picture has to offer and appreciate it.
And yet, don’t allow your brain believe that something is wrong with your life.
Your life is just as it should be.
Positive and negative and all of it.
That’s life. And it’s beautiful. Just like the water…

Have an amazing day, one thought at a time!

I usually have trash in my car…

Hey Mamas! It’s *Think it Thursday* and I usually have trash in my car…

Last week a new client came to me wondering, “how is everyone else doing it?”
(referring to motherhood and life.)
Do you ever wonder that too?

Everyone else seems to be holding it together.

A clean house.
A balanced meal on the table at night.
Homework help.
Staying in shape.
Happy kids.
Booming career.
How is everyone else doing this?

The truth is that everyone is doing great at some things, okay at others, and some things – they aren’t doing at all. And maybe that’s okay.

One of the things my friend Sherry loves about me is that every time she gets in my car I say, “don’t let any trash fall out.”
And we laugh.

Because it’s true – there’s trash in my car.

My kid’s granola bar wrappers, school papers, empty water bottles… they are everywhere most of the time. I’m not good at asking them to clear stuff out. Sometimes I’m rushing or scatter-brained. And sometimes I just don’t spend the energy worrying about it.

I used to feel embarrassed, but I don’t any more. I’m doing my best and that has to be enough.

I’m doing great at some things.
Getting by when it comes to others.
And some things, are just not happening in my life.

I can still choose to have my own back.
And so can you.

Notice what’s going great.
Do your best to improve.
Let some things go.

Love yourself no matter what.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!

Mindset Monday: When you just don’t want to.

It’s time for *Mindset Monday* and sometimes, we just don’t want to.

We don’t want to work.
We don’t want to face our fears.
We don’t want to do… anything.

When you’re running a business and managing a family, the days of “I don’t want to.” will come.  Sometimes more often than we’d like to admit.

Lately there’s been so much on my plate and so much on my mind, that I’ve noticed my brain wanting to sink into the “I don’t want to” slump.  Thankfully, I know that “I don’t want to,” isn’t true at all.

Just because I don’t feel like something in the moment, doesn’t mean that I don’t want to do it in my life.

Of course I want to work.  I have an amazing business that helps people every single day.  It provides for my family and allows me the satisfaction of making a difference in the world.

Of course I want to face my fears.  If I don’t, I’ll simply stay stagnant and end up dissatisfied with life.  I won’t help anyone if I stay stuck.

And of course, I want to do the housework and take care of my family.  I’m building something amazing in our home.  It’s so worth every effort that I put in.

So just because I don’t feel like it, doesn’t mean I don’t want to.

I want to show up.
I want to do the work.

Even when it’s hard or inconvenient, I want to do it.

I’m all in.
How about you?

Have a great week!
