Grateful Challenge

It hasn’t been the best of years – I know we are all feeling that and with the impending holidays it can feel like everything is being taken away from us. But the truth is, even if we have to look a little harder one day than the next, there is good in every day.Continue reading “Grateful Challenge”

That Glass Can Be Overflowing

It’s so easy to take a silly saying that’s always been a thing and think that it’s for real. I’m not saying it’s not – I mean, we all have our days, our moods and sure some times it feels like your glass is half full of optimism or the other way that’s not soContinue reading “That Glass Can Be Overflowing”

Control: Refocus

This is a common thing I say to a lot of people because it rings so true in every aspect of life. If things aren’t in your control, you can’t allow them to control you. In this moment so many are stressed over the election and the looming results that we may not have untilContinue reading “Control: Refocus”

When You’ve Had Enough

It took a while for me to have “had enough.” Enough of how I was feeling, enough of the toxicity, enough of the fighting, eggshells, anxiousness…I had to WANT the change instead of wishing it would just happen. The reality is that life shouldn’t feel so difficult and it doesn’t have to…if you’re making theContinue reading “When You’ve Had Enough”

CRUSH It.

Have you ever started a day completely anxious, nervous, tense, scared about whatever the day could bring or what could happen in that morning meeting or how someone was going to react to the email you sent late last night?

Healing The Trauma

Domestic Violence comes in many forms. Just because a fist isn’t raised or blood shed, doesn’t mean there isn’t trauma that can be everlasting. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month…you’re not stuck, you’re not alone and you can get out, live happily and move forward. I would love to use the negative experience I wentContinue reading “Healing The Trauma”

Notice Your Progress

I’ve been discussing this more and more over the last week with clients…notice where you were and where you are NOW. We’re with ourselves all the time (duh) so, we are less apt to notice the changes in ourselves until someone else says something or something slaps us in the face to point it out.MakeContinue reading “Notice Your Progress”

Captivity

Captivity. It’s a strong word and at first, if you’re like me, you would have equated it to war and thought this doesn’t pertain to me. I truly didn’t think it did as I read the book, “Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence – From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror.” See, it was 2015Continue reading “Captivity”

You Never Have To Do It Alone

The people have spoken I’m not saying I have all the answers. What I’m suggesting is that you never have to go through your journey alone. From the very first steps you take, you can have someone to lean on, talk things through with and start making choices that’ll guide you to your end goal,Continue reading “You Never Have To Do It Alone”

Feel Happiness

“The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the live of others.” This quote is so incredibly true. I am someone that people have always gone to for advice, an ear, a shoulder…watching how this helped people or how the advice and guidance changed their world for the better, it gave meContinue reading “Feel Happiness”
