Single Success

I’m training Master-coaches this week and a few of them are single moms.

They are creating a business.

Refusing to let what seemed like past failures get in the way.

I see their strength and I remember, yep – those are my people.

The “I’ll keep going until I figure it out.” type.

The ones who say, “I’m going to decide my life will be better than I ever imagined.”

It’s the mindset of “I’ll use all of my experience for the good of others. No matter what.”

Just like you.

Strength. Courage. Belief. Goodness.

That’s my type of person.

I think you’re amazing.

Keep at it Mama!

grace and space

My client Susan felt like an emotional mess this week.

She’s feeling totally overwhelmed with her own emotions and she is certain that something is wrong with her.

She wants to pull it together.

She wants to handle life the way a “together” person would handle it.

Can you relate?

I certainly can.

Maybe you want to have it together, pull it together, and feel together.

My advice…

The best way to feel together is to be together with you.

When you’re sad or upset – remind yourself that it will be okay and it won’t last forever.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, be your own best friend and give yourself a little love and encouragement.

When you’re frustrated with how you’re handling life – allow yourself a little grace and space.

Grace to be human.
Space to be human.

Take a break. Take a breath. Tomorrow is a new day.

Have a beautiful weekend – you deserve it!

The most beautiful day (my wedding)

I got married last Saturday and the day was so beautiful.

The sun, the trees, the music.

So many people we love (including our crew of kids – mine and his).

It’s really fun to celebrate something great isn’t it?

It’s fun to create an experience, a moment in time, and to appreciate what’s good.

I’m going to always remember that day and those moments.

When I’m mad or hurt. Disappointed or frustrated.

I’m going to remember what’s good and recapture it.

Take the time today to remember a great moment in time. Recapture that feeling and learn from it. Decide to create more of it.

Have an amazing day – one thought at a time!

1 year ago

This picture was taken a year ago. I took my kids to Florida on spring break because I was determined to give them amazing experiences, single mom or not.

I refused to believe I couldn’t afford it.
I refused to believe it would be too hard.
I refused to limit what was possible.

So, we loaded up the minivan, took a couple of extra kids along, and packed the cooler with snacks.

I look back now, and I’m so glad I did.

It seems like a lifetime ago and I’m glad we seized the moment.

Things are so different now… like we are almost different people.

In this transition phase of life, things change so rapidly, and personal growth is on hyper speed.

We live in a new state now. My business is twice as big as it was then. I’ve got my ideal business partner. My kids are older, wiser, and stronger than they were then. I’m engaged to an amazing man who I absolutely adore. I’m in love with my life and ecstatic about my future.

How can you seize the day and do something amazing?

What if this phase of life is an opportunity that’s meant to be magical?

What would you do?

Think about it.

Have a beautiful weekend, you deserve it!​

can’t sleep

I’m so excited about my life that I can’t sleep.

I’m not saying that because my life is better than yours.

And it’s not because my life is perfect either.

I’m telling you that because my life was not so different a couple of weeks ago, and yet I’m feeling so different.

And I want to share with you the secret.

You may remember that a couple of weeks ago I wrote to you about coming back to life. I’d been ignoring some of my feelings and what I wanted, for the sake of what I thought I was supposed to do. And since I decided to listen to my feelings (rather than ignore and keep moving forward with a smile), I’ve got more energy than I’ve had in a long time. I’m feeling in total alignment with my desires, and therefore my purpose in life.

And this is pure magic.

Are you feeling a sneaky weight on your shoulders that’s weighing you down?

What feelings are you ignoring?

What in your life are you doing because you’re “supposed to,” even though it’s not what you want? What change would you make today to be more in alignment with yourself and what you want?

And if you did that – how would you feel?

Think about it.

Have a great day – one thought at a time!
