Most of us only think of boundaries as affecting our relationships. Perhaps we have even taken it as far as realizing our boundaries affect our relationship with ourselves, but few realize how their lack of boundaries may be affecting their physical health. Because we are integrated human beings (mind, soul, and body), what happens in our mind impacts our bodies, and vice versa. Have you suspected a link between how you’re feeling physically and the lack of boundaries in your life? Read for more insights to these connections!
“Be careful what you’re good at-you could end up doing it for years”-Danielle LaPorte. Are you doing things in your life that you are “good” at, but aren’t your true areas of passion or gifting that you have to give to the world? Would you be OK if nothing at all in your life changed over the next 10 years? Read this blog to get clear on where good may be the enemy of great in your life presently.
There was a time in my life when I told myself, “when I get married, I won’t have to do [insert this annoying thing I didn’t like] anymore, and then I’ll be happy. I was miserable for years sitting around waiting for my life to change so it could finally look like I had hoped. I gave away all my power to create a life I loved, and was waiting for my external circumstances to magically change so that I could finally be living a life that lit me up. There is a much better way to live-and it begins with you taking your power back to create a life you love on your own terms. This is what happened when I finally stopped waiting for someone to save me.
Speaking up can be difficult: we don’t want to be perceived as rude, and it often feels easier to stuff our feelings and not rock the boat. Well intentioned, we think that not saying anything is being kind. However, as Brene Brown says, “clear is kind, unclear is unkind”. Here are some reasons why speaking up is actually the kind thing to do.
When we give from a place of obligation or duty, we burn ourselves out, and fast. When we give from a place of our overflow, we are filled up even further. Learning how to give from our overflow benefits not only ourselves, but those around us. We cannot give from a place of lack; we must be sure to fill our own cups first!
Receiving feedback should be a normal part of life-in our work, in our relationships, and in our families. However, receiving feedback is a nerve-racking thing for many that can send them into a shame spiral if the feedback is anything except the praise. In this blog I discuss ways to not allow negative feedback to send you into a shame spiral, but instead to use it to continue to progress forward and grow.
We have forgotten how to dream, how to imagine something different from our current life circumstances, and with that, we have lost the ability to create a life we love. Let’s reclaim our imagination and with it, our ability to create a life we love on our own terms.
Many people out there are talking about “flow” and making it sound like all our lives would be 10,000x easier if we could just figure out what it means and how we can enter it. Now, I believe in flow, I just don’t think it necessarily means things will always be easy. In this blog I discuss what flow really is and how hard things should really be if they’re “meant to be”.
I’m all for self-help (I am a life coach, after all!), but I consistently see a few things in the self-help world that I don’t think are helping anybody: in fact, I think they are holding us back. The secret to deep, empowering, lasting change and growth isn’t a secret: it’s learning to embrace our humanity instead of trying to squelch it out of ourselves. In your humanity becoming fearless and giving zero f*cks about what other people think (as so many would like to try get you to do) are NOT realistic goals. Learning to live from a place of love instead of fear-now that’s where the transformation happens.
Many of us live in a victim mindset and don’t even know it. Living in a victim mindset takes away your authority over your life and keeps you powerless and reacting to what happens to you instead of powerfully creating the life you desire. These are 3 things you can do to step out of the victim mindset and into creating the life you love.
Our relationships reveal a lot about our self-worth and how we feel about ourselves if we pay attention. Both the types of relationships that we seek out as well as what we tolerate have much to tell us. Let’s take a closer look at our relationship patterns so that we can have health and happy relationships!
We have been trained in our “not enough-ness” and our “unworthiness”. We think that by beating ourselves up and punishing ourselves it will help us attain this elusive standard of worthiness we have in our minds. What if loving yourself right where you are in all your flawed, brilliant, beautiful humanity helps you to transform and grow more than punishment ever would?
We live in a world that values the hustle and we are well acquainted with its benefits. How little we allow ourselves to truly rest reveals we don’t understand rest’s true value and what it can offer us. I believe if we understand the value of rest, we will prioritize it more often.
Deeper connection with others begins with deeper connection with ourselves. Learn to fully love and accept yourself so that you can fully love and accept others and experience true community and connection.
