Consider a moment in your life when a negative event led to positive consequences that you were not expecting.
We have all experienced this at one time or another in our lives. We have our mind set on a certain outcome, but life sends us a curveball, and we go on a tailwind spin downward lost in the agony and pain of what was.
Imagine life through these eyes... What would be possible for you to achieve when you are fully aligned with your values, needs, and desires?
How would you show up if you had limitless confidence and courage?
What is possible from there?
Have you ever had the opportunity to feel truly seen and heard by someone else?
Imagine being heard with a deep level of compassion and acceptance.
Imagine being heard, with no agenda or prejudgment.
Imagine being heard and accepted for who you are, seeing you as whole.
Imagine the feeling of connection that is possible.
It can be so scary sometimes to share your deepest secrets and your wildest dreams.
It can be downright frightening to share our biggest failures or most challenging fears
Where do these feelings come from?
It is the worry of what someone will say or think, the standards of society that have become deeply jaded by the effects of things such as social media.

Are you a "Yes Person"?
Do you find yourself overextended, regretting your decision, and resenting the person you said yes to? It is time to start creating some healthy boundaries girlfriend!
Think to yourself, let it start with me and be kind to yourself.
So it didn't go so well today, that's okay. We have all been there.
A fresh start can begin at 7 a.m., 12 p.m. or even 1 a.m.
Look at what is in front of you. What idea have you started and not finished? What was the story you kept telling yourself as to why you did not follow through?
If your focus is on doing things to fit in VS doing it to make a difference, think about how differently you are showing up.
We are so programmed and conditioned to tone it down and fit in. We are programmed to do it right, not the best.
Be careful jumping to conclusions.
Do you ever catch yourself creating a story about something, only later on to find out that you had misinterpreted what happened?
Do you practice self-compassion? Do you treat yourself with care and love when you have come across your own mistake or fault?
This consists of:

Take something small and edible that you can focus on, like a raisin or peanut.
Incorporate your senses.
Life provides an opportunity to grow everywhere we look.
Sometimes we just need to change our focus.
When you have hit a wall..
When you are stuck in your thoughts
When you are judging someone or something else
When you are presented with something you don't understand
