I've heard this and said this so many times. It was this morning when I was talking about expecting someone in my organization to talk to me this week about my merit.
My organization calls our annual salary review "merit".
This morning my friend stopped me and said in her perfectly matter-of-fact way "you have merit and nothing they say or do can change that".
Words have so much meaning and I was allowing this conversation about my merit...
When your intuition speaks, but you're not quite ready to listen to it, that's ok!
There are times when we choose not to listen to that small, quiet voice in the back of our heads. Sometimes we hear it, or we feel it - a nudge - and we know something is true, but we are not yet ready to take action on it.
When your intuition speaks, be aware of it. Cultivate your practice of hearing it, but you don't always have to take action on what it...
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...
Clearly, simply, what am I hear to share with you?
My desire for you, loves, is that you learn to trust yourself and know that you are worthy of the life that you desire!
From our very beginning, we assimilate the "shoulds", "would haves", and expectations of those around us - our parents, family, friends, social network, and culture. Sometimes we question, but most of the time we accept these beliefs bestowed upon us as fact. So...
Why are you crying?
What are you crying about?
You don't need to cry.
Don't cry over...!
When did you learn that it's not ok to cry?
I may have felt that it wasn't ok to cry when I was very young, but I know I learned that it wasn't ok to cry when I was a teenager. I remember riding the bus home, desperately wanting to cry, feeling the need to hold it in, then getting home and crying - sobbing.
It doesn't matter the reasons. I may...
We all have stories that we believe to be true. The key is recognizing these stories and knowing which ones are no longer serving you!
Ask yourself, a year from now:
Reflecting back through your life experiences (without judgment), what stories do you repeat?
How are you numb... In your relationships? In your work? In how you handle your finances? In your body? How are you Numb in Your Life?
I had a weird dream where good people turned into zombie-like characters and inflicted harm on others.
I had a hard time understanding the dream, until I realized the zombie people were just in a trance/a daze/they were numb. They were following orders. The trance appeared to subside at points, but those...
"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...
