Stay Focused On What Matters To You

How Can Autumn Remind You It's Time For You To Let Go?

  I love using the seasons as reminders to live your best life.   Nature’s cycles mirror our lives.   Fall is a time for letting go. It shows us the impermanence of everything.

It’s the winding down part of life. By reconnecting with the seasons, you honor life’s rhythms. Embrace Read More

Staying Conscious of The Choices You Are Making and The Life You Are Creating

  I have realized how empowering it is to consciously decide what I want.   I love that I know that I am creating the life I am living. I know from the feedback I see in my life if it is heading in the direction I want or if I need to make some new choices and adjustments.   Everything you do in life is done by choice whether you realize it or not. Too often it is done by default rather than making conscious choices in the direction of what you truly want.   How do Read More

Routines provide certainty, safety and Read More
