2020 has brought a lot of unfortunate circumstances and most likely each of us has either experienced this directly or we know someone who has.
This could be anything from a traumatic event, a sick loved one, the ending of a relationship, job loss, etc. These things aren’t just a byproduct of 2020. These things are life.
You have no idea how much a text message can impact a person’s day. A simple message that takes you less than 5 seconds to send can be the thing that gets someone out of bed. …
When the time comes to complete priorities- are you going to bail? When you make a decision in the moment, you’re using your emotional (reptile) brain. You decide you don’t need to do this now because <fill in the blank here with any emotion>. Do this to stop the emotional brain take over.
Your brain only has a defined amount of bandwidth. When you jumble a bunch of stuff in it and get it all bogged down, then you have little to no room for the really important stuff.
Once the important things are scheduled, your brain can forget about…
We assume people will like us better if we show up in a certain way. We feel we can be more successful and gain more influence if we become this “idealized” person. We are wrong.
We spend so much of our precious brain bandwidth each day trying to be people we are not.
We go “on stage” and do all the things we think people want to see, and we believe people will like us better if we show up in this way. …
When I finally stopped chasing after what society tells us is happiness, I found something so much better.
Imagine that while you’re sleeping, all of your problems are solved. When you wake up, how will you know that things are better? What specific changes do you notice?
It was the best answer I could give my therapist when she asked me this question. I wanted time to think of a good response; a valuable concept that made me feel worldly and intelligent or at least slightly insightful…This was an opportunity to pitch my life goals and to outline my career…
I wanted nothing to do with this idea of self-quarantine. You want me to be stuck at home with my family all day and still be successful in my career?
People can’t really be successful working from home. They only pretend to be… those were my thoughts in the first few weeks/months of the pandemic.
In March 2020, I had recently returned from a week-long rendezvous in Mexico's white sands celebrating a girlfriend’s 40th birthday. Taking off the 5 days from work I needed was a hardship for my overachiever mindset.
Not because I didn’t have 5 days to spare…
First of all- what is a mental GLOW-UP?
You can discover a few variations of this definition, but basically it’s a transformation and in my mindset- it’s learning to heal yourself on the inside and letting the outside shine.
There is no challenge more challenging than the challenge to improve yourself.
A GLOWUP isn‘t always about your outside transformation. Your biggest transformation happens on the inside, when you learn how to heal yourself. When you stop spending so much energy hiding your mistakes.
When you finally decide to embrace your real story.
When you shout out your mess ups, your…
We all know about the benefits of having a solid meditation practice. It seems to be the go to thing to do anytime we’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious or maybe simply too “in our feels” about something. We’re told to just go and meditate and like magic…. POOF … all our negative feelings, fears, anxieties and undesired thoughts will turn into positive ones and we will certainly become one with our highest being and maybe conquer the world! …
Emotional intelligence is a very general term these days and encompasses many facets of human social interaction and the determination of a person’s overall happiness and wellbeing, but how can we continuously begin to increase it?
Do you want to be successful, content and relatively happy in life? Then EQ is where you’ve got to start and your one thing is not exactly just taming your road rage issues (although this is a strong area to consider!).
Tell me why you’re upset and I can guarantee 80% of your internal dialogue is emotional, reactive, subjective and based off of WRONG…
We must learn to nurture ourselves and forgive each other for the judgements we put out to the world to diminish each other. As women, I have to believe that one day, we will truly all love and support each other unconditionally and it starts with one “like” or one email, comment or any type of display of support for another.
We must empower ourselves to love each other and display that love for ourselves to the world without feeling selfish.
Removing the stigma around Botox and learning how it can benefit you as you age is priceless! I wish I didn’t wait so long to give it a try.
So is Botox, Dysport or other injectables for you? This is a personal decision, but my “non medical related” advice is you should give it a try. I mean, why not? I really do try everything and consider myself the guinea pig to beauty for all my girlfriends and I’m not mad about it.
Contrary to popular belief, once you try injectables, you’re not required to keep it up. The injectables…
I show up and do the best I can. I’m reimagining myself each day. I’m writing about all the things I hope to one day coach and teach to all my people.
