I hope this note finds you well, filled with the warmth of the summer sun and the joy of new experiences. Yesterday, I celebrated my 44th birthday and I wanted to take a moment to share a story of resilience, love, and the strength that lies within each and every one of us.
As many of you know, my fiancé, Fran, his son, Owen, and I had been eagerly looking forward to embarking on a grand adventure down the picturesque Pacific Coast Highway, from the beautiful city of Seattle all the way to sunny San Diego. It was going to be a journey filled with breathtaking views, cherished memories, and the freedom of the open road. However, life had other plans for us.
In the past few months, our lives took an unexpected turn as both Fran's mother and my own father faced health challenges. We found ourselves navigating a whirlwind of emergency room visits, surgeries, and even the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis. In the face of such adversity, we knew that our road...
I hope this note finds you feeling well and warm on this final day of January. How was your month? How has 2023 felt so far? What's rockin and rollin? What's feeling a little sticky or uncertain? All questions to think about this week...
By saying goodbye to these old habits, we've started to create space in our lives, whether...
In a sea of "I resolve to" this January, I challenge and encourage you to join in the chorus of “I quit!"
Now, I know that sounds counterintuitive, but hear me out...
As women, we’re the doers. We get it done, we make it work, we squeeze it in – many times at the detriment to our own health and wellbeing. Well, 2023 is the year that we’re going to QUIT. Let’s QUIT burning ourselves out for no reason; Let’s QUIT being so focused on what other people are going through that we miss our own journey entirely.
So this week, we’re saying goodbye to:
Doing the same thing over again and expecting different results.
You know, some would even call that the definition of insanity. Yikes.
I wager we’ve all found ourselves in an ‘insanity’ cycle at one point in time.
But are you stuck there now? Are you destined to repeat 2022 in 2023?
The answer is really quite simple:
If you want different results,...
I hope this email finds you feeling warm, well, and optimistic for this week.
This month, we’re taking cues from my “I'm retiring” resolution list to see what we can let go of in 2023, and today's message is part 2.
Instead of focusing on what you want to ADD in 2023, can we take some things OFF our plate? If you’re anything like me, your plate is already full. Spilling over, even! It’s time to BREAK FREE from the things holding us back and to SHAKE OFF the habits, mindsets, and routines that are bringing us down and keeping us rooted in the past.
So, let’s start the new year SHEDDING the things that hold us back so that we can spend the year fresh, focused, and a whole lot LIGHTER.
We shook off avoiding rest and now we’re releasing:
comparing ourselves and our journey to anyone but ourselves
