In a traditional job when we make a mistake, you know what will happen. Wrists slapped, maybe called out in front of others around a boardroom table, perhaps even fired. (When I worked for a huge international company for a department President, he loved to send me to the principals office: the HR dude. And that was after he yelled at me. It was a joke, and the two of us (HR guy) would just sit and talk… At least I wasn’t decorating a desk for those moments.)
But with comedy the error is proudly showcased and shown over and over again. They are known as “bloopers.”
Wow. What a reframe.
What if you took your small or massive errors and failures and reframed them?You’ll always find the blessings when you take time to look for them inside the “failure.”
What if you take the lessons and leverage them in a unique, powerful, unconventional way?
Years ago I attended a Young Living convention and we could...
How comfortable are you with the Edge? The edge of where you are while you look at where you really want to be?
Does your tummy rumble with that excited fear of knowing you're about to step into something super exciting and desirable? knowing you have finally mustered up the courage to take a chance on yourself?
Or does it tumble out of control with huge amounts of paralyzing fear?
If the first option, I congratulate you on being brave enough to step into the Unknown.
If the second, I encourage you to close your eyes, pick up your foot and take a chance on yourself. Believe in yourself enough to do something that somewhere very deep within yourself you want This - whatever This is for you. You would not have the Desire if it was not planted there by God/Universe/Creator, your very Soul.
We all want More. We all want Better. The More and the Better just changes depending on what Edge we are standing on.
One day you'll find yourself looking back at one of those Edges and wonder why...
The closer the date came, the more I found myself “nesting.” (ha! a nice way of saying removing EVERYTHING from the bathroom!) My bathroom was in my living room and my new bathroom was in boxes in the garage. Bedlam. Chaos.
Since April I have been planning for and eagerly waiting for my bathroom to be renovated. When I scheduled the contractor, I was somewhat disappointed he was booking so far out, but in the end it allowed me to make the decisions , “incubate” the changes I wanted, slowly. A lot goes into a renovation, and the order you choose things is important!
My coach reminded me (even a coach needs a coach!) that this process was very much like giving birth to a human. And indeed it was. I began to embody this truth at an even deeper level.
Each choice I made was intentional. And I put intentions into the project itself. If you know anything about feng shui, the bathroom is partially in Wealth and Fame/Reputation. I took that knowledge and infused it...
I’ve heard it said in Heaven there is no competition.
That means, to me, there will be no soccer. And that makes me sad.
You see, I’m a complete and utter soccer nerd. Specifically, high level soccer, like European soccer and tournaments such as the World Cup and the EURO tournament.
Currently the Semi Finals are coming up in the EURO 2020 competition.
I am not approachable when I am watching soccer.
My father used to say “Ruhe!” as a game started. “SILENCE!”
Let’s just say I’m glad these tournaments come along every few years — otherwise I would get nothing done.
Where in your life are you so sure of yourself that your boundaries unequivocal?
Where in your life do you need to establish boundaries so you may create whatever it is you are seeking, or longing, to create?
To create boundaries, you must know how to say YES to yourself. You must become aware of your habits that are denying yourself from being what I call “first...
We all wear hats. All different shapes and sizes, colors and materials. Some suit us, some don’t. Some fit ok and some make us shine. Some worked once upon a time, but now we are so comfortable with them hanging around, it has never occurred to us to let them go.
Some hats overlap with others. You might find yourself trying to pull your roles apart and you know what? They are so entangled you can’t.
I participated in a three day virtual retreat last week. A good portion was dedicated to six hats of the Entrepreneur. It highlighted what hats I shine in wearing and what hats I just as soon toss in the trash.
Some hats are necessary to wear but they constrict and bite and are uncomfortable.
==> Are you following a path wearing the wrong hat?
==> Or wearing a hat that fits great but no longer suits you?
==> Do you recognize which hats make you shine the brightest?
Are you weary of all the hats in your closet and wandering down the path looking for a hat that is...
Waking up to your own Self is not always peaches and cream, but rather it can be a hot mess. It's messy, ugly, painful. And it's yours. No right. No wrong. It's yours.
Go beyond the lines. That's where your Awakening is.
