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!

Define yourself for success

It’s time for *Mindset Monday* and it’s all about defining yourself…

What thought defines you?
Let’s think about it.

Define is an action word.
If I’m working to define a muscle in my workout, I’m taking specific action to carve out that area.
There is nothing passive about defining.
Yet somehow when it comes to our own thoughts that define us, we just take what’s there.
We allow default thoughts to define us.
We look at past success or failure, and allow that to define us.  We allow it to determine what’s possible for us the next time around.
It doesn’t have to be that way.

Go ahead and think about it… what thought defines you?
I’m successful? I’m capable?  I make things happen?
Or is it more like
I can’t succeed as much as that person.
I’m not as smart as…
I’m not very organized.

Whatever thoughts define you, will always be true about you. 

It doesn’t matter what success I achieved last year or last month.  I’m going to define myself and my level of success based on where I’m going tomorrow.
The thoughts that are going to define me, will take me exactly where I want to go.

I’m a person who manages my time well.
I’m a person who proves what’s possible beyond my current state.
I’m a person who moves mountains, even though it requires me to feel extreme fear and doubt and reach far beyond what’s comfortable for me.

And when those thoughts define me, that’s exactly who I become. 

Choose your thoughts wisely.
Define yourself based on where you’re going.
Make those things true about you. 

Have a great week!
