Total Distraction In Progress

ITALY has been on my bucket list for years. I'm talking for approximately ten years! 

When this travel destination first showed up on my wish list, I allowed myself to buy books and magazines about the different regions, including a couple of fabulous cookbooks from which I still cook some now-favorite dishes. I recall marching down to Barnes and Noble to invest in Rosetta Stone software. Perhaps you're familiar with the poor-quality headset and microphone combo that came in that...

A Personal Note From the Founder

It's been a while. I hope you are well and that your summer has gotten off to a wonderful start.

I took a hiatus from blog-writing for a couple of weeks to work on a special project and it's almost complete. More on that in a moment.

I have felt the call to impact lives for some time. It's why I became a coach. Like you, I am on my own journey to grow and contribute. Hence, the special project I've been working on.

One of the things that drove me to become a coach was that I wanted...

You Don't Have to Adopt Other People's Rules

People have a lot of rules. And for some, their rules have rules.

Anytime you decide to #GoForIt, there will be people telling you HOW you should do it.

“You CAN'T do that.” “You can’t do it THAT way.” “You can’t do that NOW.”

If you decide to tile your bathroom floor and it’s your first time doing anything of the sort, consulting a how-to guide might be a good idea. But in the game of life, when you’ve made a decision to...

Your Unique Balance Point

Ever get "the look" from someone when you're sharing up your hopes and dreams? 

Said "look" implying that they either disagree, want something different, or think you're crazy for wanting THAT?

It can cause you to doubt yourself. Maybe I want too much? Maybe I want too little? How much should I want???

You are who you and it's more than "okay" that you want what you want.

You don't have to desire "as much" or "as little" as anyone else.

You can want what's "just right" for you,...

You Know Best

We sometimes doubt ourselves.

You want to #GoForIt, whatever IT is for you. 

Get a new job.

Start a business.

Write a book.

Start a side gig.

Move across the country.

Travel somewhere new on extended stay.

Go back to school.

Take a new exercise class.

Ask for a promotion and the corner office.

You share your (newfound?) desires out of excitement, hoping to see the enthusiasm mirrored back, so you know you have support. 

Then...boom. The smackdown occurs.

You don't get the...

When Doubt is Advantageous

Have you ever noticed how some days you're just so buttoned up? You feel like you've got your act together. Things are happening. You feel strong and powerful, unstoppable? You're productive, focused. You stay on track. You feel marvelous!

And then some days - perhaps the very next day - you feel lost? Unsure of yourself and where you're heading? Questions creep in like Am I doing the right thing? Am I headed in the right direction? Is this really where I want to go? Is this the best way to...

No, You Really Don't Have Enough Time...

...to waste any that is.

Time is the great equalizer. It is the one thing in life we all truly have the same amount of each day. Until your final day.

It is what you make of it.

This is not a post about time management - although that is important.

This is a post about using your most precious resource, time, intentionally in the big picture of your life. What I want to ask is...

What are you giving it for?

None of us know when our time is up. We don't know if it will come out of the blue,...

Taking Radical Responsibility for a Life You Love

Are you fighting for what you really want? Or are you just following breadcrumbs - unsure of where it's all leading?

Are you caught up in what's expected of you today? Or creating the future you actually want?

I truly hope it's the later, Sunshine.

♥ Living the life I love ♥ is to inspire you to do just that - to dream up, create, and live a life you truly love, deliberately and with intention, based on your unique combination of gifts and abilities, passions, experiences, and...

Brutal Honesty and Hard Choices Ahead

It's so frustrating to want something so bad that you can taste it - obsess about it, allow it to rule your thoughts way too much - and still not have it.

Has this ever happened to you?

I mean - absolutely draw your line in the sand about it and with complete and absolute certainty make up your mind to handle it once and for all. Mad. Indignant, even. And then just relent and do the opposite behavior of the one needed to reach your all-so-important goal? And that's all in the course of one...

You: Guided

This is one of my core beliefs:

You have a unique combination of gifts, talents and abilities. And they matter. YOU matter.

What were you built to do? Who were you built to become? All of the moments, experiences and interests you've ever had have led you to where you are right now.

You were built for more. A purpose. 

Are you living it?

I know you. You have a need to excel. You have a need to be noticed - not in a flashy "look at me" way - although maybe that, too. More like a "didn't I...
