Focusing on the Already Haves

It was so much fun visiting Louisville, KY this past weekend with my sweet love! ♥️ We had passed through dozens of times on other road trips but never stayed to EXPLORE. ✨ There were so many moments when we both paused — just to SAVOR — to really take in the beauty of a moment and to let the gifts of it SINK IN. Whenever I do this, my heart swells — and I also become so aware of how I truly would have missed a large percentage of whatever it was if I had NOT done this. It’s not that we didn’t talk about the future (we’re always dreaming and scheming!), but we spent most of our time pointing out to each other the wonderment around us and in our lives, no matter how small. In the busyness and delicious fullness of life, it’s so easy for us precious humans to: 🌼 Not be fully present 🌼 Focus on what needs fixing, correcting, or our attention — rather than on what IS working 🌼 Focus more on the to-do’s than the already-have’s I’ve been doing this savoring practice for many years now, but it truly is a daily practice. And spending a whole weekend away that was devoted to RELISHING in moments and to appreciating and celebrating what ALREADY IS filled my heart! ♥️ How can you spend more time this week appreciating the already-haves, rather than your mind jumping right over them and straight to the have-to-dos?!…

What Your Fear is Really Telling You

Fear is such an amazing part of our lives! 🙂 Here are some of the many things I love continually exploring and re-exploring in my own life and with my wonderful clients when it specifically comes to those personal fears in our hearts and minds that hold us back in any area of our lives: – Fears are so often (and so easily!) mistaken for red lights when, instead, they are usually GREEN lights showing us exactly where to go and GROW. – When we turn to face our fears and lean into them, they often disappear and, before we know it, become an area of ease within our newly expanded comfort zone (just think of the things that used to seem scary that are easy peasy now!). – Oftentimes, doing the very thing that scares us is the most powerful (and perhaps the only) way to truly transform the fear. – If we don’t face our fears… (1) they typically don’t go away on their own, (2) they can become paralyzing, (3) we become stuck in life, (4) they can leak out all over the place in other areas, (5) our world shrinks to fit the confines of our fears, (6) we clog our “spiritual pipes,” our intuition, and our calling, (7) and we disconnect from our true selves and what we came here to give, experience, receive, and SHINE! – If we aren’t experiencing some of these kinds of fears semi-regularly, it probably means we are staying a…
