  • How I Ruined My Vacation…

    How I Ruined My Vacation…

    I’ve been pretty quiet over the last month, doing a lot of self-work and discovery with one of my coaches. It’s really been the journey of 2022 so far–question everything, deconditioning from everything you’ve been taught, evaluate joy and where energy naturally comes from, etc. (e.g. slow down so you can speed up). It’s all […]

  • Learning How to Feel Better: The Best Game of Hide and Seek

    Learning How to Feel Better: The Best Game of Hide and Seek

    Do you remember playing hide and seek as a kid? I used to LOVE it! I was in gymnastics and was petit in my younger years so I could squeeze into strange places–laundry baskets, inside a cupboard or armoir, between furniture and the wall, etc. It was fun to be chased and looked for. I […]

  • This may ruin my credibility but…I need to be vulnerable and real.

    This may ruin my credibility but…I need to be vulnerable and real.

    I’m human. [GASP] I know, it’s embarrassing to even say it. The last few weeks, my brain has been screaming, “I DON’T WANT TO!” Exercise, eating healthy, posting on social media, sleeping, even just playing on my phone. “I DON’T WANT TO! I DON’T WANT TO! I DON’T WANT TO!” Yes, my brain threw a […]

  • Poking Holes in Perfectionism

    Poking Holes in Perfectionism

    Did you know that some people don’t recognize they suffer from perfectionism? I was coaching a client who is a very Type-A personality. They were telling me about how “out-of-control” they were feeling–that feeling that all the plates are spinning and are about to crash at any moment. As they were telling me about some […]

  • When to Adopt, Adapt, or Abandon

    When to Adopt, Adapt, or Abandon

    You’re doing a  project and you’re in a rut. Doing work feels like you’re banging your head against a wall. Congrats, the primitive part of your human brain is working perfectly!  The primitive part of your brain functions from the motivational triad (conserve energy, avoid pain, seek pleasure). When you’re functioning from that part of […]

  • What Is Your Insecurity Stopping You From Doing?

    What Is Your Insecurity Stopping You From Doing?

    As we grow up, as humans do, we unconsciously take on thoughts and beliefs that others offer up to us. When we were bullied, abused, neglected, told we’re different…we unconsciously made those things mean something about ourselves. We unknowingly create insecurities for ourselves that sounds like:● “I’m not good enough”● “I can’t do that”● “I’m […]

  • Don’t Take Candy From Strangers

    Don’t Take Candy From Strangers

    From a young age, we are taught what to believe. We are given baselines and guidelines on how to conduct our lives and what is considered “normal” or “acceptable” behavior. We don’t really question it…although we may sometimes test the boundaries.    We create and adopt beliefs in order to protect ourselves and/or make sense […]

  • Boundaries

    Boundaries

    What is a boundary and why should we set them? Just like we have physical boundaries of our homes (walls, windows, doors, fences, etc.), we also can create emotional boundaries for ourselves and our relationships. Boundaries are something we put in place as a means of protection and empowerment. To set a boundary, you basically […]

  • Listening to Yourself

    Listening to Yourself

    Some say people who talk to themselves are crazy. I completely disagree. I think people who talk to themselves are smart. Why? Because this is how you get the opportunity to challenge unhelpful beliefs. I’m not a huge fan of social media. It takes away time with the endless scroll. I love seeing what people […]

  • Resisting Emotions

    Resisting Emotions

    In almost all my client sessions this past week we have discussed resisting emotion and how the ego plays a role. We often think of the world as black and white, right or wrong, good or bad. This is a big reason we resist feeling a negative emotion—such as shame, guilt, insecurity, etc. What really […]
