Show Up, Do the Work

Here we are, not just at the start of a new year but at the start of a new decade. Nothing inspires people to institute change in their lives like crossing the threshold into a new period of marking time.

The Light and the Darkness

Light and Darkness. Triumph and Trials. Joy and Sorrow. For me, this theme has been quite prominent over the past few weeks in many ways. Conversations, poetry, biblical passages, life. What I know and keep being reminded of is that even the most joy-filled life has darkness and difficulties. No one is exempt. But, if you take the time to see it and experience it, you can find that along with the fear and pain that darkness may bring there are also the most amazing gifts.

Back to Basics

I enter the month of December feeling lighter in a lot of ways. I sense that a new season has begun for me. My attempts at my typical meditation practice didn’t sit well with me this morning. It left me feeling — unfulfilled. I felt compelled to go back to a simple guided meditation that began my meditation practice way back when. It left me feeling invigorated, rejuvenated, and with a sense of clarity that I haven’t felt in quite some time. I also walked away with the knowledge that this is a time for me to reassess what I am doing and why I am doing it in all areas of my life so that I can move forward in alignment and flow with what this new season brings.

Finding the Right Coach

There are so many coaches offering services these days – health coaches, business coaches, life coaches – and yet there seems to be a remarkable lack of clarity on the subject of how a client can find the right coach to fit their needs. The needs of every person will of course differ, so empowering yourself with information about what is being offered by a coach could greatly improve your chances of having success in any given program.

This is ME

In my professional career, I have always made it a point to operate in full transparency, so I thought I would start this week with a post about the values and beliefs that I bring to the table in an effort to increase the effectiveness of the work that I do.

The Challenges of Change

A while back, I was asked to speak to the the question: What is the biggest challenge or obstacle to change that needs to be overcome in order for a person to reach a goal and make a vision come true? I took a few minutes and recorded a video with my response, but I never got around to posting it. Why? Because it just didn’t feel right to do so. It wasn't finished yet.
