Your Future Self

Gifts to Your future self!

I just finished writing a handout for September for my clients and I am SUPER pumped!

You know that feeling when you realize something you really, really want is POSSIBLE? That is the feeling I feel now.

Amazing!

What do you wish for yourself?

What have you wanted for yourself for years and have not been able to do until now?

Look at that thing now and imagine that it has already happened 3,5, 10 years from now.

Now go deeper and imagine all the details of that and how you got there, what your life looks like now that it’s real.

What do you do each day?

Where do you go?

Where is your family?

All the things.

That’s it.  Check your feeling that you have when you imagine it to make sure it is the best feeling you can imagine and not the one of ‘it will never happen’, but of true possibility.

Now do that every day and ACT from that feeling SO that you can create that life you want. Those are the gifts you do for your Future self.

That is how I started my business, helped so many people in a few months, lost 20 lbs, stopped drinking wine and am having such a better relationship with myself every day.

IF you are curious to find out exactly how to apply this in your every day life I would be happy to have a chat and help, just reply back to this email.

Talk to you all next week !!!

1 year today!

A year ago today I started my blog!!!! Wha?!!! Whaaaaaa!
I am sitting in the rental minivan and the twins are in the back literally snoring while napping.
It’s our last day at the cottage with my brother, his wife and 3 kids and my parents. It has been such a good week, couldn’t wish for anything better!
I have a lot of thoughts swirling in my head but the main one that keeps coming back is the I am just proud of myself for sticking it out this year and doing exactly what I said I would do.
When I started the blog I said to myself, if I can commit to writing each week and then actually write each week – I can do anything.
Guess what! I did and I can!!!
Not only do I have a years worth of content up, but I have also helped 17 people this year, I have contributed to my family income and grew my own self confidence in a way that is so exciting to me!!!
So thanks for sticking with me this year.
I have enjoyed writing for you all and the process of writing and following through on my commitments to myself.
I have enjoyed getting feedback from all of you and am looking forward to the next year.
I hope your summer is just as lively and lovely as ours is. I can’t wait to see you all soon.

Bad Moments.

Bad Moments.

What if you didn’t add the “bad” to the moments.
I had a bad fight with my son.
I think it’s bad.
Then I make it mean ‘I’m making our relationship bad’.
Later that night when I’m putting him to bed I keep thinking about how I was mean to him and how I should be better and how it’s not as good as it can be.
But what if I just drop the ‘bad’ part and see it as just a moment.  Then I don’t make it mean that it’s effecting the relationship in any way and my relationship with him is just as good as always.
Then come bed time and I am snuggling with him, talking, kissing him, enjoying his company, loving him – in other words present and actually having and see our good relationship.
You guys see the difference?
I do now as well.
That is the beauty of dropping the self judgement, or judgement of what you did.
What if life is full of moments and you get to enjoy the good ones despite the bad ones (even if you are tempted to beat yourself up for the ‘bad’ ones).
Have a great weekend every!
I am so pumped to fly to Toronto tomorrow with my crew!
A whole week with my brother and his family and my parents at a cottage on a lake!
Now that is deff going to be a great moment:) mixed in with a few whinny kid moments.
I can handle it.

Take aways form Tony Robins event this week!

Hello my beautiful people!
Doug and I had the whole day together at Tony Robins event and it was great!  We listened, we learned, we laughed and we jumped. We also managed to sneak in a little coffee break at a beautiful French patisserie near by, which felt so good to sit and reflect and discuss!
Most of the lessons Tony presented I was already familiar with through my own coach, so I won’t talk about them but I will tell you what was new to me.
One concept he teaches is about 4 different classes of experiences we have in our life. Here is the picture.

IMG_4056

What happens when we spend a lot of time doing class 2 and 1 experiences in our life is we have a bit of an identity crisis and we freak out and we go straight back to class 3 experiences, which is where we are comfortable.
We crave familiarity and comfort and so we go back to doing things that are feel good to us in the moment but are not good for us.
That is so true as you start to grow and expand your self confidence. The freak out happens and you are right back to square one, thinking how did you get there and you are not growing at all.
That is my struggle this whole year ever since I set my impossible goal. Ever since I started coaching people, started my business.  Everything was and is going so great and it is also so scary and uncomfortable and brings up a lot of doubt and indecision for me.  If I’m not careful and I don’t do my own coaching I am right back to comfort eating and not feeling all the feels.
So if you are finding yourself going through a set back, know that it is only a set back, a ‘contraction’ as Tony calls it. It is totally normal and expected and you have to get right back to it to keep going instead of thinking you have failed.
The other concept that really spoke to me is the importance of using our body to live the life we want.
As I start to work more this year I spend more time sitting during the day which doesn’t feel good to my body so I have started including some quick walks here and there between my clients to refresh myself and when I heard Tony say ‘use your physiology” I knew exactly how that applies I my life.
Not moving feels bad and moving feels great.
Pretty obvious and yet I wasn’t thinking about it and not planning it in my day.  I am usually so active with my kids that when I’m not with them I start to feel it so much!
Now I am so excited to have that brought to my awareness because I love how I feel when I move! Its also such a great tool for pumping yourself up for whatever you want to feel that day.
I bet that is no news to you if you have been sitting all day at work and know all about how you should include some exercise in the day.
So for you here is what he says “if you don’t have energy you can’t create anything great. Energy creates energy. Movement creates energy.  So use your physiology to create positive energy to then create what you want with your life.”
Not simply ‘exercise to feel good’, but really use that as a tool to achieve all your big goals.
Alright, hope this was helpful and have a great Sunday ya’ll! I love using that ‘ya’ll’ even though I am not from the south of US, and from northern Canada, which cracks me up every time I want to write it to you all. So YA’LL, love you and see you soon!
