Relaxing into Life

I was on the phone with three former mastermind buddies yesterday and as we were sharing updates about our lives and businesses, I wrote down the following phrase: “Relaxing into Life” It seemed that’s what we are all currently doing. We met in 2009 and were all focused on building our businesses, getting clients, creating products and services, and making money. We met biweekly for two years by phone to… Read More »Relaxing into Life

Should New Year’s be just another day?

  • Debbie 

2011 was a year of transition for me. I spent six months researching and writing my book, BreakingThe Spell, and going through some serious reflection and personal growth. While it was challenging at times, it was also extremely transformative. I enjoyed the process and learned a valuable lesson: how to accept what is and be happy in the moment instead of always striving for more. Yet at the same time… Read More »Should New Year’s be just another day?

The Spell is Broken

I struggled with whether or not to write this post. In my heart, I knew I should. I have an important message to share. In my head, I had concerns. What would people think, particularly my clients or prospective clients? In the end, my heart won. I’m in a place in my life where I’m experiencing great change, change I know will make my next 50 years much more peaceful… Read More »The Spell is Broken

The Illusion of Time

I just returned from a weekend trip to Sedona, Arizona. I went to celebrate my 50th birthday. It was a trip that was prompted by an inspired idea over a year ago. In the fall of 2010 my husband and I were on our way to Arizona for a conference when I realized my 50th birthday would fall on 11-11-11. Immediately I got the sense that I was supposed to… Read More »The Illusion of Time

Validation

I’ve come to realize that sometimes the inspired ideas we follow are there to show us what we don’t want. I used to believe that every inspired idea was a step in the right direction. Turns out some steps on the inspired path are steps we take to confirm that’s a path we don’t want to follow. I’ve had several instances of this in my life but just recently had… Read More »Validation

Law of AttrACTION

  For years people have been talking about the Law of Attraction. It’s was popularized by the movie, The Secret in 2006. It’s been adopted by everyone from life coaches to financial mentors as the way to get what you want. It’s also been slammed by some who argue you can’t think your way to getting things. Some say you have to fully feel the emotions of actually having the… Read More »Law of AttrACTION

Thank You Inner Voice and Starbucks

I woke up in a funk today. I felt out of sorts, distracted, bothered. I think I know why. I attended my first conference in over a year this past weekend. The last conference I attended I left a day early—couldn’t handle the selling and hard-sell promotion. It had been billed as a total content event; it was not. That was the first time in 7 years I had left… Read More »Thank You Inner Voice and Starbucks

What You Focus On Expands

  • Debbie 

Call it the Law of Attraction or whatever you want. It’s true that whatever you place your focus on, you naturally attract more of into your life. Or, at least you become aware of more things that are in line with that focus. Truth is, they’re already there, it’s just you often don’t see them because you’re too focused on other things. (Ever bought a new car and suddenly see… Read More »What You Focus On Expands

You Can’t Go Back

I heard it many times in all of the personal development seminars I attended over the years. Once you shift, change your mindset, or grow, you can’t go back to the way things were… or to the way you were. It was promised as a good thing. Growth and transformation were the goal. You work hard for both. It’s challenging to change ingrained mindsets and beliefs. So, I always thought…… Read More »You Can’t Go Back

True Friends

  • Debbie 

On Saturday I attended a celebration of life for my neighbor’s mother. Even though we both get busy with our lives and don’t spend a lot of time together, I consider this neighbor a friend. We’ve lived next door to each other for almost 17 years. At the services for her mother, one of my other neighbors commented on all of the great friends our mutual neighbor had there to… Read More »True Friends
