I don't know if I've ever, or recently, explained this concept of The Simply. I'll dive into it in a separate post, but the basis of the idea is that, as humans, we have a tendency to complicate everything. The harder we work for something, the better the results must be, right? Wrong.
My purpose with The Simply is to provide tools and services for life to be simple!
More on that in another post...for now, onto the topic at hand:...
This is hitting me hard these past couple of weeks: Reality is what you make it!
Think about that for a moment...what does that mean for you?
For me, it means I am experiencing a version of "reality". This particular reality has been made from my previous experiences and the beliefs and stories that have been created through those experiences. Some of those beliefs and stories may have been conscious, but many of them were likely...
Do not underestimate me!
Yes, I may have underestimated myself. And, yes, that gave you permission to underestimate me, but that ends, right here, right now.
"Good enough" is no longer good enough.
I will no longer settle for less than exceptional.
Exceptional is the only path forward for me.
I had coffee with someone today who told me that I was "the same" as someone who does not bring my same knowledge, talents, experience, or...
"Patience is a virtue...that I just don't have." I've said so many times throughout my life - ever since I was a young child!
My mum had the virtues book when I was young and I clearly remember it "randomly" being left open to both Patience and Tact on many occasions. We can talk about Tact another time ;)
I always joked with her that "patience was a virtue that I just didn't have". And I was perfectly fine with that!
To me, patience...
Stop saying “I don’t know”, because, yes, you actually DO know!
How often each day do you say “I don’t know” in a day? What situations do you say “I don’t know” in?
As a coach, especially, the phrase “I don’t know” drives me crazy! Because, let’s be honest - you actually DO know!
In fact, in many cases, ONLY you know!
I’ve found three main times when...
Do you know your core values? Are you living in alignment with your values?
Let's back up...A simple definition of values is: "One's judgement of what is important in life."
What do you consider to be important? What are the behaviours, energies, and considerations that matter to you?
Core values usually stick with you - they're the ones that you may not always be aware of, but you feel out of sorts when you're not in alignment...
What the F does that even mean!? Notice without judgement?
If you follow me, you know that I talk a lot about noticing. Notice when you fall back into a habit. Notice when you say something that doesn't sit right in your gut. Notice your reactions. Notice....blah, blah, blah!
And, try to release the judgement.
If you've found yourself saying something along the lines of: "Lady, I'm noticing myself f*ck up a lot. How is this supposed to...
Life is so full of "shoulds", "coulds", "would haves"...blech!
During a coaching session, I wanted to create a way to bring more joy into my morning routine. I love waking up and practicing yoga and I love the idea of waking up and sitting in meditation, but when the alarm actually goes off in the morning, I don't leap out of bed to do either of those things!
As much as I want to do them, there was something that had them as "shoulds" in...
I'm actually not sure where to start this post, but I know I need to write it!
I attended the first weekend course of my journey to become a coach (a professional coach? a life coach? a Co-Active coach? a life-enriching coach? a balance coach?). I definitely didn't know what to expect, but I went in with an open mind.
I have an infinite level of gratitude and respect for the amazing group of people who experienced this weekend along...
