A year from now…

What was your life like a year ago? 

What were you doing? 

Where were you working? 

Who was in your life?

Were you happy then?

Were you living life the way you wanted to?

Were you faced with making a difficult decision?

Were you feeling stuck in life, not knowing what to do?

What advice would you give your one-year younger self now?

Do you need a February restart?

February is often the month when people lose their motivation when it comes to making those changes they wanted to make, when the hype of the holidays, the new year and new beginnings, and vacation days in the sunny south (if you live in the freezing cold north like I do!!) seem like a distant memory.

What changes did you want to make?

How are they coming along?

This post is in no way meant to guilt you if you’re not on track with your goals, but rather to let you know that if you’re slipping on them or if they’ve fizzled out, it’s completely normal – and it’s possible to get back on track!

Are you interested in knowing how?

New year, new YOU!!

With the holidays winding down and normal life just around the corner, this is the time to start thinking of all the new things you want to try, and it’s time to firm up your New Year’s Resolutions!

New Year, new you!!

But first, let me ask you…. if you’ve consistently made New Year’s Resolutions in the past, how successful were you at keeping them?

If you’re like most people, you stay on top of your goals for the first couple weeks, maybe even the first month, and then regular life settles back in and you let things slip a little – until they’ve slipped completely away.

Sound familiar?

I’ve been there, too many times!

So, before you declare your new Resolutions this New Year’s Day, read on for some tips to help set yourself up for success this time.

4 Ways to protect your emotional energy

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but at times there are things I want to do, but I just can’t seem to muster the motivation or energy to do it.

I’ve written about motivation and procrastination many times and I’ve dedicated a whole segment to it in my workshops, but this is different.

This is wanting to do something, having the time to do it, but just not able to get into the right head space for it.

How to have fun planning when you’re the creative type

When it comes to planning, do you balk at writing out lists? Personally, I love lists and I make them all the time, but I know there are people who will resist making them. It’s not their thing.

I get it, I really do.

There are also times when a list just isn’t going to cut it, or there are too many different lists needed for a single project that it becomes overwhelming, and who wants that?

So, for those of you who want to set a goal and know what steps to take, all without making a list or too many lists, this creative tool is for you. Continue reading “How to have fun planning when you’re the creative type”




F.E.A.R.

‘It will be scary. It will be fine’.

Today’s inspiration via my Day-At-A-Time desk calendar. In case you missed the post about my calendar and its quotes, you can read it here.

So many times, I have let fear rule my actions, and my decisions. And no doubt it has changed the course of my life.

Can you relate? Can you recall any times you’ve passed up on an opportunity or avoided a situation because of the fear you felt?

I don’t mean the type of fear you feel when you’re walking alone at night, or you’re in a dangerous situation.

This type of fear is the one you feel when you’re in a situation that’s unfamiliar, outside of your comfort zone. Or there’s an opportunity to step up and play bigger, be more, a chance to grow as a person.

Yeah, that kind of fear!! Continue reading “F.E.A.R.”
