How To Get Out Of Your Own Way

In my years of coaching (ok fine and in years of my own personal experience 😜) I've come to find more often than not, we are our own biggest obstacle when it comes to achieving our dreams and goals in life.

We all have these sneaky hidden beliefs about what we think we deserve and are capable of in life... but is there really any truth to these beliefs?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.... USUALLY NOT.

How Losing My Voice Taught Me Our Voices Matter

In my last post I shared how I lost my voice due to complications in surgery during my fight with thyroid cancer.

How that opened my eyes to just how precious our voices are and that what we have to say matters.

What I didn’t tell you is that I still struggle with self doubt, fear, and insecurity when it comes to sharing my voice and what I have to say. This post gives you an activity to strenghen your beleif in your own voice.

Quotes Empowering You to Use Your Voice

In honor of Women’s history month I wanted to share some of the most powerful words that have empowered and moved me over the years.

Call me a nerd but I continuously turn to quotes for inspiration and encouragement in life. There’s something so powerful about the way words can make you feel less alone in whatever it is you are chasing after in life.

How to be the Happiest Person You Know

Happiness...it's what makes life worthwhile, am I right?

But sometimes it just seems so far off, like such a struggle.

Believe it or not, it actually makes no logical sense that I have never faced full on depression or completely derailed in life. No really... it's actually something my doctors, therapists, and personal coaches have all told me.

Despite a life of being knocked down, having all odds against me, and trauma after trauma... I've been able to persevere through with a positive outlook, rise above adversity, and truly enjoy life.

Life After Loss

No one ever really talks about, or prepares you for, how the pain of losing someone close to you never really goes away....

Even as the days and years pass, you’re still going to think about and miss that person every single day.

It’s almost like the pain just becomes part of you, and somewhere along the way you learn to accept it or live with it.

While we each learn to cope and carry on in our own way, I want to share a couple of things that might help you along the way….

The Healing Benefits of Adaptogens

After I was diagnosed with cancer the first time I became viscerally aware of just how precious our health is and I relentlessly committed to doing all I could to be proactive with it.

One of the first things I learned (in lots of research!) was that the food we eat plays a significant role in our cellular makeup and overall health.

After working with both a traditional and holistic doctor, I became fascinated by all the natural ways you can be preventative with your health. That’s where adaptogen herbs came into the picture for me.

Feeling stuck, or are you really just too complacent?

Complacency is something to be very wary of in your life! While I’m all about slowing down so you can fully enjoy and celebrate everything you have worked so hard for, progress and growth are part of our nature.

It’s what motivates us, energizes us, and sparks our passion for life,  

And the key to ongoing progress/grows is consistently doing things that challenge you. When you stop doing things that push you forward in someway,  that’s when you lose your sense of purpose, energy, and excitement in life.

What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do With Your Life

Have you ever been at the point in your life where you literally do not know what to do next? You feel lost, stuck, hopeless, like you are waking up every day and just walking through the motions. A week goes by and the days blur together.

If you answered yes, please know that you are not alone. I’ve been there and so have many other women that I’ve worked with.

What Keeps You from Reaching Your Goals

There’s so much hope that comes with a new year and a new beginning, but do you know that only about 8% of people will actually follow through on the resolutions and the goals they set for a new year?

Crazy low right!?  

I’m not sharing this to discourage you or bring you down from the new beginning momentum you have, but rather I’m sharing it because I want to help you get ahead of it so you can be one of those 8%.

Five Ways to Prioritize Self Care in 2019

When I say “self care” I’m not just talking about spa days and long, hot soaks in the bathtub. To me, self care is so much more than that. Self care is exercising your mind and listening to your heart. But the truth is that modern day life is busy. It can be  hard to find time for real self care. The kind of self care that guides your life in the direction your heart wants it to go.

One Thing to Guarantee Success in 2019

Settings goals for the new year might feel a little bit overwhelming. It can be hard to know where to start or what type of goals to set. If you want to set goals that have meaning, you have to gain clarity on what means the most to you. You have to prioritize the things in your life so you can focus on the right ones. Setting goals which are in alignment with your true. authentic self will help you have your best year yet.

How to Find Your Purpose in Life

What is my purpose? What am I meant for?

These are some of the most intimidating and overwhelming questions we can face in our lives. We all go through these times where we really start to dig deep and think, “What am I meant for? Where am I headed in life? What is my greater purpose? What is the meaning of my life.”

Those times can extremely overwhelming, lonely, and paralyzing and they can make you feel so stuck. If you are there right now, I feel for you. I’ve been there many times in my life.

Today on the blog, my client, Miranda Allen, is sharing her story. I was so excited when she reached out about life coaching earlier this year.
