Be Loved, My Beloved!

Be Loved, My Beloved!

What does it feel like to be loved? Take a moment and think about a time when someone special (maybe a family member, friend or significant other) did something…or said something… that filled your love tank to the brim. Was it…a hug, a thoughtful gift, an act of service, quality time spent together, or spoken words that filled you up? When we combine the two words ‘be loved’ it turns into beloved. Does anything change for you as you put the two together? It does for me. My One Word this year happens to be Beloved. As I have reflected […]

Be your Best

Are you being all that you were created to be? Sometimes I answer this question with a resounding YES! It’s usually when I feel that I’m having a positive impact on my world and others….when I’m using my God-given talents to be and do my best. All too often, though, the answer to the question is a definite NO. Admittedly, in my humanity, I fall short of being my best on a regular basis. An inner, self-critical voice frequently tells me how I am not measuring up and never will. If I listen to the voice too closely I begin […]

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 […]

Focus – How Engaged Are You?

Focus – How Engaged Are You?

Are you engaged or disengaged with your work? If you admit to feeling disengaged, you’re not alone. Studies show that a whopping 71% of the US workforce is not engaged in their work. While it’s good to know that we’re not alone, it makes me wonder how the 29% who feel engaged are accomplishing this. How do they do it? What would it be like to wake up energized and enthusiastic about going to work every day? What would it be like to be the CEO – chief engagement officer – of your work and your life? How can we […]

Thank You – for Changing my Life

Thank You - for Changing my Life

Have you ever noticed that sometimes the words ‘thank you’ just aren’t enough? At times those two special words fall short of encompassing the depth of the emotions that we feel.  They suffice for simple acts of courtesy and thoughtfulness, but seem insufficient when thanking someone for helping you through a life-altering experience. Those people who help us navigate major crossroads in our lives are special indeed. In my opinion, these game-changers deserve a deeper, more meaningful, expression of gratitude, but such feelings are often hard to convey. Think about it. Is there someone you’ve always wanted to thank for […]

“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
