So I LOVE the new year. New Year’s Resolutions are definitely my thing. I mean really. I have been a Life Coach for over 25 years. (Yes, practically before “Life Coaching” was a thing.) Inspiring people to do what they want, to take their life to a new level and usually a level they didn’t even know was possible, that’s what I do. The new year is a GREAT time to make changes. Don’t let the statistics around the success rate of new year’s resolutions scare you. People make changes ALL THE TIME! Goals CAN be reached. If you KNEW it was totally possible and you were capable of anything, what would you want to do next year? What would you want to change? What do YOU want to be able to say about your life that you can’t say now one year from today? #Goals #Resolutions #NewYearsResolutions #Inspire #Inspiration #Courage #Bold #Confidence #PersonalGrowth #AuthenticLife #AuthenticLiving #Transform #Transformation #Dare #DareGreatly #LifeByDesign #DesignYourLife #LiveOnPurpose #PurposefulLiving #ALifeOfIntention #IntentionalLiving #LifeCoach #MotivationalMonday #MindfulMonday #Quote #InspiringThoughts #InspiredLivingGuru #LiveAuthentically

One thing I do know is that my brain DOES not know what it wants! It changes its mind, overthinks, and gives my body anxiety. Now my inner wisdom, that does know what my soul wants and needs. Call this Intuition, The Universe, God, The Divine... whatever you want to call it, find your way to quiet your mind and listen to this Source! Deep breathing, going for a walk, meditation, yoga, body relaxation, getting still...whatever it takes.. get quiet and listen. Often what your mind wants is not what is meant or best for you. Stop letting it control your life and listen and follow your true guidance instead. #angelalovelett #choosehappiness #followyourinnervoice #youdeservebetter #yogaandmeditation #listentoyoursoul #godknowsbest #quietthemind #authenticlife #followyourtruepath #intuitiveliving #notgettingwhatyouwant #authenticself

Repost: @lukahocevar Beautifully said...👍 . If you want to build your company, love your clients and invest in a relationship with them. When you love your clients, they will multiple. . All things grow with love ... . In the end your success won’t be measured by how many followers you have , your wins , losses or size of your company but by the difference you make in peoples lives and we make that difference through building meaningful relationships. Happy Sunday! 👌🏻 . . . . . . #lukahocevar #wordotd #wordsofwisdom #thankyourclients #buildingrelationships #investinrelationships #humanconnection #hustlemode #instaquotes #truenorthway #icistaffing #bclabour #relationshipgoal #quotesaboutrelationships #vancouvertrades #truenorthlabour #buildpeopleup #authenticlife #weareallconnected

As we are approaching a busy season where we are at the mercy of other people preparing our food, instead of going haywire and eating everything in sight...utilize these tips to build a healthy, balanced plate and stay on track with your goals! Enjoy the food you LOVE • eat slowly • stop when satisfied not full • extend grace to yourself • remember you’re an adult in control of what you put in your mouth. #NotAMemberOfTheCleanPlateClub

So, I may have found a new church home today! One of my favorite parts (there were many) was watching little kids dance and sing at the front. I’ve never seen a church do this before, but it was so sweet. And this song was sung over every troubled soul today and it was beautiful... Peace, bring it all to peace The storm surrounding me Let it break at Your name Still, call the sea to still The rage in me to still Every wave at Your name Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear

Anybody feeling anxious about family holiday gatherings? 🙋🏼‍♀️ So many of us have complicated relationships with family. We don’t necessarily choose them, yet we’re biologically wired to care about them. When a family member hurts or disappoints us, it seems to carry so much more weight than when a friend or acquaintance lets us down . If you’re dreading your family gathering because you’re worried someone will say something that leaves you feeling hurt, ashamed, or angry, try planning ahead — think about what you’re afraid might happen, and decide how you want to respond . Maybe, you’ll want to think compassionate thoughts that help you feel more neutral. Maybe you’ll want to think self-loving thoughts that help you feel confident. Or maybe you’ll decide that when someone crosses a boundary, you’ll end the conversation or leave the room . Find what feels good good; choose thoughts, feelings, and boundaries that support you being the best version of yourself. And then PRACTICE!!! Practice thinking, feeling, and doing what your best self would every time you find yourself worrying. It’s hard to choose your thoughts when you’re already feeling upset. But the more you practice ahead of time, the more naturally these responses will come when you’re faced with a challenge . . . 🎨: @arts.aksd

Do you agree or disagree? Please comment below: . . I used to think that mantras and affirmations were for sissies. Well, not quite, but I did believe that they were superficial and used by people who simply weren’t ready or didn’t want to do the deeper work that would actually make a difference in their life. . . I was wrong…. . . At least partially wrong… . . The way mantras and affirmations are promoted as self improvement techniques is what keeps them from being effective. Simply writing down a mantra (a bit cliché) or an affirmation ( #QOTD ) feels good but doesn’t do what it claims to do… …shift you into a more positive mindset so you can actually manifest what really matters to you. . . Many of you may not agree with me and that may mean you found the secret to using mantras and affirmations in a powerful way. . . Do you use mantras? Do you feel that they work for you? Please comment below.

Simply Soulful Sunday- perspective, sigh. This week take a step back, get quiet, breathe, be still. Is it working for you? Are you frenzied and hurried, are you calm collected, are you joyful and excited? How are you feeling? Tune into your feelings to regain your perspective. If things aren't working maybe it's time to look at it a different way. If you can detach yourself from your regular routines and thought patterns, you may be able to see things in that new light. Be the witness be the silent observer you are bound to make better decisions from this vantage point. #soulcoaching ® #soulstruth #authentictruth #authenticconnection #nurturingsoul #nuturingnature #cultivatingconnection #intentionsetting #wylde_heather #authenticlife #mindfulness #uncoveryourinnerwild

chaos i've always hated it i've always created it in many ways my disorders were an attempt to manage perceived chaos for years i felt like i was just trying to manage and regulate all the chaos around and in me it wasn’t even that messy it was just completely out of my control filled with people and happenings that didn’t make sense to me my hatred of chaos shifted when i studied philosophy in college and became obsessed with nietzsche i remember when i read this: “one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star” it made so little sense to me but i found it deeply comforting i just knew i wanted to birth a dancing star and for the first time someone wasn’t making chaos a bad thing i began to stop resisting and i started to feel chaos as intense energy i remember thinking i'm going to embrace this and deciding chaos, i'm going to make dear friends with you i can't say everything immediately got easier but i stopped suffering so much and i started enjoying the journey more it's taken years for me be with chaos without losing myself i've realized that everything i try to manage, suppress or run from is actually me fighting fiercely for my own elusive attention things have to blow up for me to notice them or at least that's been the case in the past but i'm so incredibly done with needing tragedy for me to pay attention and be willing to shift i'm so committed to doing it differently and it feels scary and embarrassing at times like i'm learning how to ride a bike again and there is some distant memory of how this used to be easy it feels messy at times and yes chaotic but i'm pretty sure nietzsche was right one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star so i'm leaning into chaos again willingly lovingly at times even joyfully i'm letting the electricity of uncertainty become fire in me and cultivating the knowing that i was not thrown into the fire rather i am fire may you learn to embrace the darkest parts of you the things you fear most so that you can use all the energy you’ve spent managing, resisting and shaming to become the very brightest version of you ❤️ @emilyjoyrosen

Day 43 - 50. Part of the wooden bulkhead has been done. It was quite difficult to start with as nothing is square and nothing is at a 90° angle. We spent at least the first day just looking at the area and discussing how to successfully do it but we are happy with the final outcome. Next up is the opposite side behind the passenger and with no wall on that side it is going to be an even bigger challenge but challenges are to be overcome.

When circumstances break you, let them. Welcome the change, and know that it not you as Spirit being broken - it is the Ego within you that is being tested and broken for your own good. Your Ego is the human mask that you have agreed to wear during this life time to learn necessary lessons to help you rerun home to God/Spirit. When you transcend these lessons, you transcend your humanness. So let the ego break, and let your spirit soar by living from your creative heart.

I am an avid traveler, which is a big piece of my Yoga Practice, and one of the biggest challenges I face is myself, as there are always excuses to not leave my comfort zone. I travel to learn more about my own inner world and it delights my soul to see your soul light up when we are on adventures together. So say YES to the possibility. Now. A serendipitous group is forming and you can be a part of this life-enhancing magic. Please explore our travel itinerary online. Be Nourished.

Ладушке в саду досталась роль Марфушеньки - душеньки по сказке Морозко. Сказали характер подходит... Спрашиваю, дочь, что ты там такого натворила, что тебя такой ролью наградили? Но востребованность штука редкая, спасибо что дали😄. Теперь учим то самое: - Мамаш, брови намаж! Мамаш, щеки подмаж! И утешаем себя тем, что Настеньку сыграет любая, а вот по стопам Инны Чуриковой не каждая пройдет)) А фото доброутреннее воскресеное.

Fascinating that the modern 'diet culture' mainly focuses on what we put in your mouths and how much of, with zero attention to HOW we eat. 🌯 🥗 · It's not just about what you eat, but how you eat it too. · Perhaps you are eating the most nourishing 'healthiest' foods in the world, but if you're eating them while stressed, guilty and overwhelmed, you simply won't get the wonderful benefits of the food. 🍯 · Or you may eat foods that are not particularly nourishing or have many nutrients, however if you eat them while relaxed and mindful, you'll enjoy them so much more and the body will respond positively (won't store it as fat tissue, absorb more nutrition and potentially eat less- feeling no guilt). · This concept of mindful eating and the body's 'in-built regulation system' called hunger and satiety has blown me away when I rediscovered it a decade after ONLY counting on what the next diet would say. · Do you notice how your body and mind feel when you take time to eat with no distractions? 🍱 ·

SE LIBÉRER DU DÉSIR DE PLAIRE "Quand notre estime de soi manque de vigueur, nous faisons tout pour plaire aux autres. C’est particulièrement vrai dans les relations amoureuses où, par besoin inassouvi d’être aimés, nous faisons tout pour plaire à l’autre, nous moulant souvent complètement à ses attentes, parfois même au point de nous perdre de vue et d’oublier qui nous sommes vraiment. On le constate souvent après une rupture, alors que nous nous remettons à la découverte de tout ce que nous aimions mais que nous avions mis de côté pour plaire à l’autre. Nous redécouvrons nos goûts culinaires, musicaux, littéraires, sportifs; nous retrouvons nos amis, nos activités, nos talents même, que nous avions mis de côté pour être aimés. Être libérés du désir de plaire à tout prix, c’est comme si, après avoir marché trop longtemps avec de pénibles talons hauts inconfortables pour plaire aux autres, nous redécouvrons maintenant le bonheur de porter des chaussures vraiment confortables! Pour certains, ce n’est pas tant le besoin de plaire qui prédomine mais plutôt la peur de déplaire, d’être perçus comme méchants, égoïstes, inadéquats, insuffisants. Alors nous faisons tout pour ne pas déplaire, non pas pour rentrer dans le moule, mais plutôt pour nous faire le plus petit possible pour ne pas créer d’inconfort « dans la relation ». Bien sûr, nous oublions que NOUS ne sommes pas confortables, tant que la relation semble fonctionner… Évidemment, aucune de ces deux approches, le besoin de plaire ou la peur de déplaire, ne nous procure le bonheur tant espéré, la relation harmonieuse souhaitée, l’Amour tant désiré. Et nous nous épuisons à ne pas être nous-mêmes, à nous perdre dans les méandres de ce que nous imaginons que les autres attendent de nous. Et nous perdons de vue nos propres besoins, ensevelis sous les obligations de plaire ou de ne pas déplaire que nous nous sommes créées. Et au final, nous n’obtenons pas ce pour quoi nous travaillons si fort! ⬇️

Let me just say this - working for yourself can be amazing and is still hard. Building a team and working with a team can be amazing and can also be very hard. You learn a LOT about yourself as a communicator. A lot of people, to be blunt, straight lie to you about how many challenges you'll face in going to work for yourself or starting a business, and there are always challenges at different phases. (And things and moments you miss) They paint a picture of the dream, not the life, so I meet a lot of new clients in complete shock about this. About how hard it can be. I was too. I wouldn't change course at this point - I love the work and the flexibility and the creative possibilities. That's true and it's still true about the hard parts. The details, the means to make your work come to life and to earn a living for can be the hardest part. But the result of creating with others and connecting with clients and getting to teach - I do LOVE that for me, so that's why I'm sticking with it. What do you love about what you do? But seriously, can we be honest about the day-to-day, what goes into making a business come to life, lifestyle in general? Remember when we all became adults and many of us were like "why are taxes so complicated and how the heck do you budget and what are all these bills and I need what kind of insurance and why??" That part of adulthood is rarely covered when you're a kid - we're told to dream of the career and the future, but adults don't pass down the lessons of daily life. We're doing the same disservice in painting pretty pictures of online businesses and not being honest about what it takes behind the scenes (and who had what resources before launching that business.)

"I can't do it that day" or "right now is not a good time for me" is a fine enough answer...enough information given. But how many of us follow up with a detailed response of all the reasons that day is not a good day or right now is not a good time? What if you didn't? 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️
