Thanksgiving Gratitude

Thanksgiving Gratitude So... how was your Thanksgiving? Did you have all of your favorite dishes with time to reminisce and chillax?! Here's a slice of my day.... it started with connecting with long-distance friends via texting and email. Don't you love the ease of sending a text? Immediate connection at your fingertips! I moseyed around and eased into my day before heading over to my friend Lisa's house to water her plants and check up on her house. Lisa is one of the most generous people I know, and the biggest gift I get from her is to spend time at her home with her and her beautiful children. Whether it's a short or extended visit, it's a visit that warms my heart every time! Lisa has also extended her generosity with fabulous dinner & garden parties, concerts, movies and fun social outings. As a gift of gratitude, while I was watering the plants, I also cleaned her household bins. It may...

Wow - did you see that?!  So cool... you can feel the exhilaration along with the rider.  I want to know what you felt watching it - leave your comments below Fog Notice the uncertainty at the beginning. With all of the fog, it doesn't seem like it would be a smart move. Maybe wait for another day. Do you ever feel like that? You don't have the clarity, and you just want to wait it out. How long have you been waiting?! Jump And then there comes that moment when you trust... you know it's time.  So you step to the edge, and you jump. It's a free fall - you aren't quite sure how you're going to land.  It's exhilarating and scary at the same time.  There's doubt, there's fear, there's courage.  Which one is strongest for you?  It will determine how you...

Motivation Monday:  Are You Hoarding Your Talent

Motivation Monday: Are You Hoarding Your Talent

  Become a subscriber to Motivation Monday, click here Motivation Monday: Are You Hoarding Your Talent Last weekend I needed some perspective and pulled out my copy of Napoleon Hill's Law of Success.  One of the pages I opened up to was the above quote by Brendan Francis. As I read this quote, I asked myself, "is there anywhere in my life I'm hoarding?" My surface answer?  I am so grateful and blessed for what I do. It comes so naturally and easily, and my client sessions are over the top!  I know that when I am in a session with someone, it's all out, every time..... there isn't any holding back on either end, which makes for enriching, rewarding and productive interaction. When I dug really deep, I found the place I did the most hoarding..... time.  Yup.  I'm a time hoarder.  I allot 'X' amount of hours to everything - working out, socializing, work, free time.  And you know what?  It helps me...

Motivation Monday: Create Change

  Become a subscriber to Motivation Monday, click here Motivation Monday: Create Change Don't Wait For Time   Andy has some great insight here, doesn't he? You can't go back and change events or circumstances. Sure, after a big event, you may want to give yourself time - that's natural. The question is, how much time? And, are you waiting for that magic wand of time to make the change for you?  What if there is no event..... time has just been passing by and you have become complacent?  Hmmm.... sounds like it's truth time. When do you know it's time for you to move on?  You'll feel the internal pull, although it may be met with resistance.  What is that resistance about anyway?  Resistance is a sure sign you're ready for change.  That feeling you get is your inner thermostat letting you know it's time to get out of a comfort zone.  Let's say you've got your career in a good position, and now, you'd...
