A Stack Of Self-Care Gifts That'll Stave Off The Weight Of The Holidays

Here is your gift

But they're probably not what you're thinking.

I've all but given up worry over the notorious holiday overindulgence weight gain—that worry will keep until after I ring in the new year. But this coming year, I may just dare to give up that worry altogether. You see, worry, these many years over has not produced positive results. Nada one, not a one.

How To Not Overstress, Overspend And Overgive This Holiday

Happy Holiday
LIVE YOUR HOLIDAYS YOUR WAY: FOUR STEPS TO GIVE UP ACTING FROM GUILT, OBLIGATION OR PERFECTION THIS HOLIDAY SEASON AND CREATE MORE LOVE FOR YOURSELF AND THOSE YOU LOVE.

In our day to day life, you feel pressure to take care of everyone and everything else and at the holidays this feeling doesn’t go away, it usually gets stronger. Whether it’s making sure the holiday dinner is cooked perfectly, the holiday party is a smash success, cards are sent out on time, or we’ve bought presents for everyone so no one feels left out. We are naturally giving, and that is a feminine super power that we want to hold onto, for sure. But, sometimes we give so much to others, that we forget to give to ourselves. We put our self-love on hold, especially during the holidays.

Do You Have Recurring Dreams?

Question for Bernie:

Okay, I will keep it simple and stick to the important points.  I have a recurring dream. I dream that I have bought a house, but the previous occupants won’t leave. They are smoking and eating while I am telling them to leave because I am now the owner. (I don’t like smoking, by the way).

Not Good Enough Yet

 
you already have it, whatever it is.

Rather than “faking it till you make it,” share what you have and what you already know with the world. Your unique perspective, your sense of understanding, your intuitive wisdom, your experiences, and your filters form a distinct framework that no one else can copy, possess or try to be.

You Just Might Stay Stuck If You Don't Do This

You Just Might Stay Stuck If You Don't Do This

When I recently noticed myself starting to feel “stuck” about the next steps required to move my coaching practice forward, I took it to the journal. Especially in this technological age we’re in right now, something magical happens for me when I allow my thoughts to flow via pen and paper. On one special evening, with just a hint of The Black Keys playing in the background, I came up with this comforting doozy:

Celebrate The Great Fullness Of Life

Being grateful

With Thanksgiving upon us here in the United States, I’ve been thinking about the mixed feelings I often have about this great holiday. Of course, it can be a wonderful celebration of gratitude, appreciation, and family connection. Unfortunately, Thanksgiving also tends to be about feeling obligated to spend time with the people we’re “supposed” to, eating too much food and feeling guilty about it, and pretending to be grateful when we’re actually annoyed and stressed out.

What if we could make this Thanksgiving less stressful, more fun, and actually be able to enjoy ourselves, appreciate our family and friends (even the ones who drive us nuts), and focus on what we’re thankful for in a genuine way?

A Cheat Sheet For Managing Meltdowns

deep breaths

Mascara running. Sitting on the floor. Compulsive Internet searches trying to figure out what to do next. Sound familiar?

Being ever expanding emotional beings often result in these kinds of perfectly imperfect scenes. Patterns of healing can be very different from each other and also different for us at different times in our own lives too. It’s important to keep this in mind as we roll with this journey of healing knowing each step and each struggle is a necessary part of the greater picture.
