As women, we are often taught not to trust ourselves or our own inherent intuition, but to instead look to other outside “authority figures” who supposedly know more than we do about our own lives. In this blog I discuss ways to reconnect to your own inherent female intuition, because no one else is an authority on your life other than YOU. No one knows as intimately as you do about your own life. No one else has your intuition, because it’s your life, and you’re meant to live it.
Women in this modern age stay exhausted, overwhelmed, and often feel guilty for taking any time for themselves. Many women think this is a result of having too much to do or a simple case of “there’s never enough hours in the day”. However, the reasons for feeling guilty for taking any time for ourselves as women run much deeper than our time management. In this blog I explore some of the most common underlying beliefs that may be keeping you stuck in overwhelm and exhaustion & gift you a FREE PDF download of some self-soothing statements to help you shift out of people-pleasing.
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!
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.
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.
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.
