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!

coming back to life

I’m coming back to life.

No, actually – I came back to life all in one day – just like that.

Last week, after months of struggling, I finally had that magical moment of clarity with my coach about what I need to do.

Within hours I felt myself waking up, feeling like myself again, and flowing with passion about my purpose in life.

Do you know that feeling?

Here’s what happened…

In 2017 I created an offshoot of my business based on what I thought I was “supposed” to do.

The experts in my field told me I should. I was turning away from my passion.

I tried to talk myself into it saying it was a worthy cause combined with a brilliant business plan.

The experts know what they are talking about, right?!

What do I know?

Turns out, I know a lot. I know what is genuine for me. I know what feels like the right move for me in my life and my business. I know what my true genius and passion is. And when I stay true to that – everything works.

Are you doing what you’re “supposed” to be doing, but feeling bogged down, burned out and frustrated? Really think about it.

What’s it like to think about doing what you want instead?

Doing what feels right to you?

Doing what feels like your authentic self?

Ask yourself that, and feel the energy. Really, just feel it.

Isn’t that the kind of energy you want guiding you in life?

I do. 100%

I wondered why I wasn’t myself for so long. I was pushing through and gearing up, but the light inside was always flickering. It’s easy to fool myself because I still stay positive and smile and muster up the energy I need. But inside… it just wasn’t working.

In that moment last week – the light came back.

What can you do to get your light back? What do you really want to do to stay true to you, your desires and your genius? And what will it be like to live life from that energy?

Think about it. You deserve it.

Are you powerful? (p.s. read this blog all the way to the end)

I think you’re powerful.

And what I think, might actually matter.

Someone once told me in a low moment that I was, “powerful and vibrant.”

I didn’t think I was at the time, but I decided to believe him.

I decided to think that he saw something in me that I couldn’t see.

I wondered if it was true.

And if it was true – what might be possible?

I decided to believe it and I moved forward with determination. 

(I tell more about this story on the podcast here – it’s a good one)

With that belief, I built my business. I wrote a book. I helped my kids through the divorce process. I trained hundreds of life coaches over the space of a couple of years. I rebuilt my life one day, one emotional breakdown, and one triumph at a time.

Not because of what or who I was… but because of what I believed. 

What do you believe?…
What if you are powerful?
Vibrant? Capable? Brilliant? Determined?
What’s possible then?

Decide it’s true.

Allow that belief to move you forward to create exactly the life you want.  I know you can.

3 years, 2 words, and 1 magical moment

It’s a very special *Love Note Friday* and 3 years, 2 words, and 1 magical moment.

Today is a BIG day for me –  and I can’t wait to tell you why.

Just over 3 years ago I was on the phone crying to my mortgage officer.

I mean really crying.  

I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to ever qualify for a home loan on my own.

I had been financially dependent for so many years.

I was terrified about how I was going to make it after my divorce.
I hated that feeling.  I hated that I felt so incapable of making enough money.

My lender didn’t believe my story at all.

He wasn’t worried, and he didn’t believe that I needed to be worried either.  He didn’t believe that I’d have any problem at all. And I remember what he said to me that day…

“Listen, you’re going to be just fine.  This is all temporary.  You’re pretty powerful and vibrant and you are going to pull yourself out of this.  I’m confident of that.”  

Powerful.
Vibrant.

2 words that shaped me from that day forward.

I’ll never forget the words he said and the way he said them.  He saw in me what I couldn’t see.  He believed I was going to succeed.  (I could tell he really believed it.)

And I decided to believe him.

Over that next year there were many times that I wrote the words, “You are powerful and vibrant” on my bathroom mirror.  I could hear in my mind the belief he had in me.  I trusted that he saw something that I couldn’t see.  I chose to believe it was true.

Today, at 10:30 a.m. I’m signing on a new home loan.  I’m the only one on the loan documents. I’ll be sitting across the table from Geoffrey who told me I was powerful and vibrant, and sign on the dotted line.

It’s one of those big milestones and I’m celebrating today.

What if you are powerful and vibrant too?
What if your fears and insecurities are nothing more than noise in your head?
What if you can borrow my belief in you, and choose to make it a reality?

I know that so much is possible for you.

Show me (and you) that it’s true.

Have an amazing weekend – you deserve it.

1:1

*Think it Thursday* and 1:1 –

I went away last weekend with my oldest son – just the two of us. I was determined to make it happen, and so grateful that we could pull it off.

It was the best time spent not because of the sights and the food (even though they were amazing), but really because we were connecting.

There were no email notifications, no, “wait just a minute,” and plenty of time to talk about how things are going.
Priceless.

Maybe it won’t be a full weekend, but find time for 1:1 connection time with the people that matter most in your life.

It can be 5 minutes of “how was your day?”
It might be 10 minutes of walking around the block to chat.
Or maybe perhaps turning off your phone while you fold laundry together.

Take the time, make the time, you won’t regret it.

Have a great day, one thought at a time!
