A Fresh Approach to the New Year with One Word

A Fresh Approach to the New Year with One Word

Do you like to set New Year Resolutions? If your answer is no, then you’re like many who find them frustrating, unfulfilling, and even frightening. Would you like a fresh approach to developing yourself this year? In my coaching practice, and the Wholistic Woman Community, I use a theme word for the year to guide personal and professional growth. I highly recommend the One Word process if you’re looking for new perspectives about your work, or life overall. The three-step process outlined in the book One Word to Change Your Life tells us how to receive a word that God, […]

Laughing is Good for You

Laughing is Good for You

Do you like to laugh? How do you do it? Are you one who likes to giggle, guffaw, snort… or do you smile quietly when something tickles your fancy? I’ve been thinking about the importance of a good laugh lately. At times, I take humor for granted but now it’s becoming clearer just how necessary laughing is for my wellbeing…and the wellbeing of my loved ones. Laughter releases tension, fear, and anxiety that weigh us down. It forms momentary time capsules of joy that bubble up from our center and burst effortlessly from our lips. Who can you count on […]

Be You with One Word

Be You with One Word

  “Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!” These words, by one of my favorite authors, Dr. Seuss, remind us of our uniqueness. My wish for each of us this year is to become more fully ourselves. May we combine our gifts and talents, with our life history and experiences, to develop completely into ‘one-of-a-kind’ people. So, I ask you…who are you today? And who do you want to be tomorrow? What will it take you to get there? What will you include, or exclude, to help you […]

Lost and Found Update

Lost and Found Update

Do you know what you want more of in your life? Such awareness can be exciting…and at the same time overwhelming… maybe even a bit scary. Such positive and negative feelings often co-exist. The confidence of I know what I want can be offset by the imposing question how do I get it? How do I move towards the life, or work, that I envision for myself? Coaching helps us identify and take small steps towards attaining more of what we want…more of what makes us happy. I continued to learn about this growth process as I achieved one of […]

Be Calm – Labyrinth Walking

Be Calm - Labyrinth Walking

Do you ever have trouble quieting your mind? Is life so full of activities and obligations that you find it hard to settle down and be calm? At times, I can feel overly busy and in need of some peace and quiet. Can you relate? When I feel stressed, I know that I need to unplug and focus my attention within. This can take place as a quick meditative moment when I pause and appreciate the beauty of nature, or listen to a song that touches my heart, or just simply close my eyes and breathe mindfully. At other times […]

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us. It is in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~ Marianne Williamson
