But I Have Wings!

But I Have Wings!

Sometimes we don’t like any of our options and we feel stuck in indecision.  But there’s always another option. You know all those things you crossed off your list because they seemed impractical or even impossible?  Or maybe you decided against something because it seemed too selfish. 

Maybe it’s time to look at them again. 

If it were possible, what would you do to get there?

What could you do to make your choice more practical? 

If you’re worried about being selfish–is it really so bad to consider a decision that would make you happy?  

Don’t settle for walking when you could fly.

Thanks For Working Today

Its Saturday. Some people don”t have to work on this day but a lot of them did.

I woke up sick this morning but I’m better tonight because people worked on the weekend.  

I made sure to thank the doc, the nurse, and the receptionist for being there so I could get treated. I also thanked the pharmacist and technician so I could pick up my medicine.

Thanks also to the working folk at the grocery store who made it possible for Sylvia to pick up something for supper.

Tonight, I’ll sleep easier. I won’t be coughing and my body won’t ache.   

The world is a lot a lot better today because people went to work.  Thank you so much.

It’s time to change News Year’s Resolutions to New Year’s Possibilities.

Let’s see…

Lose weight. Quit smoking. Get in shape.  

Does that about cover it? Don’t forget to set a regimen so severe that you’re bound to fail in the first week.

Enough with the shame inducing resolutions.  Shame sucks out all the energy and feeds us the message that we are inadequate.

You’re not inadequate. You have endured.  That makes you amazing.

Why don’t we make this the year of possibilities? What could happen? What could you accomplish? What do you want next?

Doors will be opened in 2019. Make a resolution that you will see every opportunity and choose the ones that are best for you. Perhaps you will make your own opportunity. 

This is gonna be your year.  I believe in you.

It’s Not Magic

2016-10-14 161496366783..jpgWouldn’t it be great if we could wave our hands and say an incantation that would  make our unhappiness go away in the blink of an eye? Believe me, if I had any magic words I would to give them to you.  

But in all my years of helping people, I’ve never seen change come magically.  However, I have seen power come to people through their courage, wisdom, and patience. 

As a Life Coach, I can help you find your strength and plan your next course of action.  And when the changes come, it won’t be because you found magic. It’ll be because you found your power.   


Please note: I am not a psychotherapist. Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of but it requires the help of a therapist.
