Do your peeps rock?!?

Who do you love hanging out with the most?

I mean outside of your significant other and your kids, if this is your answer 😊 

(I LOVE hanging out with my family too, especially now that my kids have grown and moved out on their own!)

Outside of them, who do you love hanging out with?

What is it about them, that makes you love hanging out with them?

How do they make you feel?

I’m betting that if you love hanging out with them, they make you feel pretty special.  Right?  They make you feel smart, funny, entertaining, attractive, just naturally good!

Are there people in your life who drain you?  A friend you love dearly but you almost dread getting together with them?

How to know whose advice to take

I’m constantly reading a number of blog posts and print articles about how important it is to create a detailed plan of what you want to accomplish; after all, without a clearly defined plan, you won’t know what you’re striving for.

There’s a quote along this line that I love; “If you don’t know where you are going, any road will take you there”, by Lewis Carroll.

The first time I heard that, it resonated deeply with me.  Yes, I’m a huge planner!

But I’ve also read posts about how it’s important to not have such rigid plans and go with the flow; let life take you where it’s supposed to take you, where you’re suppose to be, without interference.

So, what do you do?  Do you plan?  Do you not plan and just go with the flow?

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?

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.
