It Was An Amazing Journey!

“It always seems impossible until it is done.” Nelson Mandela.   My husband and I recently returned from an amazing 6 week journey! (More about that shortly.) And, we returned to basically summer weather. That’s is more unusual here in the Pacific Northwest in October, than it is common. I must admit, it was nice to feel the warm air and see the sun when we’re used to having more cooler temps in October and if not downright rain-at least some drizzly days. But then shortly after arriving, we realized the sun was trying to…

The Antidote to the Killer of Motivation!

Has this ever happened to you? You feel excited about starting something new, perhaps a new food and exercise plan. You’re doing well with what you planned for yourself for several weeks-maybe even a couple of months-and then BOOM! It hits you! The “I don’t want to do that today/anymore/right now” syndrome. It happens to all of us at one time or another-or perhaps for some too many times… And, when it does, it doesn’t feel good. It provokes unhelpful thoughts and feelings of I’m a failure, I’m not good enough, why can’t I feel…

3 Tips to Starting Anew! When a new year occurs or anytime in our lives when we are ready for a change, even when we want that change, it can feel scary and uncomfortable. Letting go of the past can sometimes be a difficult task. Old habits from our past, that are embedded heavily into our subconscious minds, can feel like concrete that is there to stay. But when we choose to focus on the new beginning that moving forward offers us, as opposed to what we are letting go of, it can make the…

The New Year does this to me…

Hello, How’s it going? We are now over 3 weeks into our new year. Wow-it’s already flying by. Time seems to do that for me these days, what about you? Do you feel like time is going slowly or is it at warp speed? Also, how did the beginning of a new year land on you? Did you feel excitement for new beginnings? Or did you feel the pressure that you should feel excited about the new year and all you should be doing? Well, I have to tell you, for me, it’s been a…

Set up Healthy Boundaries

Quote: “Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.” Stephen Covey Tool # 6 of the Refresh, Reset & Reconnect Series: Set up Healthy Boundaries When you set up healthy boundaries, you are telling yourself that you care about you! It’s not selfish. It’s necessary. Healthy boundaries are the limitations you set for yourself and others. They can be mental, emotional, physical and material. When you cultivate healthy boundaries, you are not being rude or unkind. It means you are changing what you are…
