Permission to Unearth Your Passions

Permission to Unearth Your Passions

One of my favorite RAVES that I get from my clients is how I helped them get back to themselves again. This is often done through journaling.

But it can be through any medium, honestly.

How You Return to yourself isn’t the point … so long as you do.

So many women feel lost, as if they are just going through the motions of their life.

If this is you, this latest Brave Yes episode is for you.

What does it mean to unearth your passions?

Far too many women are walking around in this world not knowing themselves having spent too many years focused on tending to others and making sure other people shine and thrive. Like your kids. Like your co-workers and boss. Like your partner. Like your friends or family members.

Well, when is it your time to shine?

And that’s what this show is about today. Giving you the permission to dive into your own “innerhood” to figure out what lights you up, what sets you on fire and what gives you purpose and meaning.

  • This is the BEST time to Connect with YOURSELF.
  • This is the time to learn how to become your own BFF.
  • This is your chance to focus on mothering yourself in the most rich, nourishing possible way.

As a coach who often helps women re-create their careers and find their bold, authentic life path, I find this inner work to be the most powerful work women can for for themselves.

And yet I do realize many are afraid to look under the surface of themselves too much.

But it can be fun! I promise.

So I thought it would be fun to share with you some 5 ways you can Unearth Your Passion in a Quiet Pandemic Winter.

I think this time of the year is always perfect for this kind of inner work.

But especially so right now during this crisis where thriving in place is the goal.

Permission to Rise Stronger

Permission to Rise Stronger

Are you ready for the New Year?

What is the New Year calling from you?

For me, it’s to focus on being stronger and stronger so I have the energy and the inner and outer resources to live into my Brave Yes Journey.

Yes, live INTO it … not just dream about it or plan it.

I’m a girl of action.

But until last year, I was often a girl of more inaction than action —even though the common thing I hear from people who follow me on social media is this: You’re doing amazing things.

And yet I always kind of laugh at that.

I’m not doing enough!

I should have done more!

I had bigger plans!

My coaching work is about helping you make a bigger impact — in your own well-being, in your relationships, in your work and creativity and in your community.

I am passionate about helping you feel more fulfilled and to find more meaning in this one precious life you get.

And so that means we have to get you spinning into an upward spiral — not falling into the downward spiral of survival mode.

Goals. Resolutions. Intentions. Wishes. Promises.

That all sounds good this time of the year when we are desperate for a fresh start, especially a fresh start after the most ridiculous, challenging year any of us can remember.

But here’s the thing. Unless you address the underlying foundation of your own wellness, goals are going to feel like just one more thing to do. So, this episode is dedicated to the permission slip to focus on just being strong enough to handle anything.

The Brave Yes Show is here to motivate you and inspire you to live a more authentic life —- one that is in full alignment with your soul’s longings and desires.

And we start not with the big brave yeses … but with the simple act of being more resilient – something we all need right now.

My own story begins with this. I spent years setting big goals — goals I wasn’t ready for in my life because I was too busy living in survival mode.

First we must get out of survival mode.

Then we can fly.

To get out survival mode, we must learn how to Rise Stronger.

In this week’s episode of The Brave Yes, I’m focused on the permission slip you need to rise stronger in 2021.

Permission to Celebrate Your Mistakes

Permission to Celebrate Your Mistakes

I spend a lot of time talking to my clients — and my teenage daughters — about how to avoid making mistakes.

But the truth is that we learn so much better from our mistakes than we do from our successes.

No one really wants to fail at things. Not me.

But in order to live more authentically we have to be more vulnerable and show up in a new way with those we love and the world.

Today’s permission slip is all about encouraging you to take imperfect action and celebrate your mistakes.

I hope this latest episode of The Brave Yes Podcast gives you the permission you need to see your mistakes as something that isn’t inherently wrong with you but just a part of the human experience.

In this imperfect year of 2020 I thought it would be fun to lead you through a few questions and my share my own stories of MY mistakes in 2020 and the celebrations behind each and every one of them.

Oh, and a, bonus … I’ll throw in a prompt at the end to help you celebrate your wins as well. Because we’re all about honoring it ALL around here.

On Jan. 4, I am kicking off my brand new Rise Stronger in 2021 Free 7-Day Challenge. Sign up now and get ready to learn well-being and resilience skills to make you stronger for whatever the new year will bring and to make a bigger impact in your life. Register here.

Permission to Journey Toward Wholeness

Permission to Journey Toward Wholeness

For the longest time I was operating compartmentalized.

All the parts of me were scattered about.

There was the me as a working mom.

There was the me as a thriving business owner.

There was the me as a dreamer.

There was the me as a social justice activist and anti-racist.

And then there was this: the highly open-minded spiritual me.

Then one day this year, I decided I needed to bring all the parts of me together into one whole.

Your wholeness journey — when seen in the light — contains many multitudes and it leads to that whole-hearted enoughness I bring to my coaching work and programs.

And journey it is. Brené Brown calls this Braving the Wilderness (affiliate link)

I call it a journey into the messy middle.

Some call this the liminal space. ALL of it is wild and messy and beautiful and filled with a powerful set of lessons to learn.

The journey toward wholeness begins long before you are aware or conscious of it.

And most women will never give their wholeness the light of day. Most women will ignore their every dream and desire to please others. Most women will put their own needs behind others.

But you’re not most women … you want something more.

You know there’s more to you … and so … permission to journey toward YOUR wholeness.

Permission to Shake Things Up

Permission to Shake Things Up

Brave Yes.

What is this podcast all about?

Today’s permission slip is going to take you on a deep dive into the why behind this podcast and the hope I have for YOU and it’s purpose in this world.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results …

So why then … are we such creatures of habit?

In this podcast episode, I’m exploring a struggle that many of my clients who want to make a bigger impact in their lives have around starting new habits and breaking old ones.

And, I’m talking about the impact we can make in our lives when we shake things up and do things differently.

I’m also sharing my own story of shaking things up and why I felt I needed to do something pretty crazy in 2020 like changing my coaching business name.

This story is personal AND explains the concept behind The Brave Yes name as well.

In my upcoming Soulfully Aligned Virtual Retreat coming up this week you will have the opportunity to learn powerful new ways to shake things up in your life for the winter — and 2021.

Your retreat registration begins with a 20+ page workbook to use before, during and after our time together — encouraging you with the reminders you need to breathe and to push through your beautiful life.

During the retreat I will give you an excuse to put your life on pause to breathe and I will give you the inspiration and wisdom to dig deep for the push you need to keep going and keep showing up for yourself. Learn more here.

Permission to Thrive in Place

Permission to Thrive in Place

There seem to be two schools of thought right now.

The camp that says that right now during this pandemic is when you should be PUSHING yourself to be amazing and doing amazing things.

Or, there’s the camp that says this time is hard, give yourself a break and sit on the couch and forgive yourself for doing absolutely nothing with yourself.

Well, I am in the third camp … Camp Middle Ground.

In this episode of The Brave Yes, I’m sharing a bit about finding balance between being an over-achiever and a total slacker.

This is about finding that place between over-performing and under-performing.

AND, what it means for me when I say Rise UP Stronger than before … and to thrive in place right now.

Thriving in place — and being stronger than before — isn’t just pandemic self-care.

I work with clients all the time where our work together is all about helping them thrive in place.

You can rise up and be stronger right now.

  1. You can choose to focus on your strengths not your weaknesses.
  2. You can choose to focus on mindful positivity (not toxic positivity — there’s a HUGE difference) and ground into gratitude.
  3. You can choose to reach up and reach out for help, support, accountability and motivation.
  4. You can choose to open your mind to new perspectives and ideas.
  5. You can choose to nurture yourself – and your changing emotions! — fiercely.
  6. You can choose to grow forward or stay in place.

Ready to be Stronger Than Before? You are invited to join me and several other beautiful humans to focus on resilience and the good life at my upcoming Soulfully Aligned Virtual Retreat where we will focus on being and doing for the upcoming winter months.
