Push past your feelings

I’m feeling lazy today, I think I’ll do nothing.

I’m doing a 30 day blogging challenge (Blogging Challenge) I won’t lie to you, the struggle is real. Seriously, there are days that I really have no desire to blog. Not only is there no desire, sometimes I can’t even think of what to blog about. Yikes! Not a good problem to have during a 30 day challenge. On days when I’ve felt this way do you know what I did? I wrote the blog post anyway! Yup. Those feelings are fickle and if I had given in to them I probably would have written about 2 blog posts so far, instead of 10.

Being consistent, keeping my commitments to myself, and not giving in to that voice telling me to throw in the towel, are why I am going to be successful with this blogging challenge. I want to encourage you today to not give in your feelings that are telling you to quit. Push past your feelings and do what you’ve committed to doing. You will be rewarded. Your whole life will change because when you’re consistent, when you’re keeping commitments to yourself, and when you’re doing what needs to be done even if you don’t feel like it, your life has to change because you have changed.

Consistent Action Brings Rewards

Consistency, being steady. I chose to talk about taking consistent action today because I’m doing a 30 day blogging challenge and today the words won’t come. Instead of giving up I decided to blog about having no ideas for a post. Writing about it would keep me on track, consistent, and still committed to the blogging challenge.

I could have easily made a decision not to write today.When I’m not inspired to write it’s frustrating. However, not writing would be me not keeping my word to myself. I did not want to let myself down so I showed up.My reward for showing up, words started flowing and here I am encouraging you to be consistent with whatever you said you would do.

Being consistent is a choice, a decision that you make. When you’re taking consistent action you are becoming disciplined, you’re becoming a person of integrity, you’re becoming a person who gets things done.Some days it won’t be easy but it will be worth it, you’re worth it.

What keeps you from being consistent?

Quiet Time Gives Life: 5 Signs that it’s time for some

Me having quiet time in a tree

Me having quiet time in a tree

Quiet time. It seems like a rare commodity. People are not making time for it anymore. I wonder why? Are they afraid of it? Are you afraid to be alone with yourself and God? Quiet time gives life, could this be why it is so elusive?

Lately my quiet time has not been a priority. I’ve been squeezing it in after everything else in my day is done and I’m so tired that the time I’ve been spending is so short. It’s time for me to make it a number one priority again, nothing should come before my quiet time, my time with the Lord. Once I spend time with Him He shows me how to manage my time for everything else. Once I spend time with Him, the answers to whatever problems I may be facing become clear and I am equipped to face whatever life dishes out. Quiet time gives you life and here’s how to tell that you haven’t made it a priority:

  1. You feel like your life is out of control.
  2. You feel agitated.
  3. You struggle to make decisions.
  4. Something is bothering you and you can’t seem to put your finger on what it is.
  5. You’re not the nicest person to be around.

If the list resonated with you, it’s time to make quiet time with the Lord a priority. Start where you are, wake up a few minutes earlier, go to bed a few minutes later, do whatever it takes but start somewhere.You don’t have to have big chunks of time to get started, 15 minutes is a good starting point. As you spend time with the Lord He’ll show you how to free up more time for what matters most.

Spending time alone may be difficult for you, your mind races, you can’t focus, the attention deficit really kicks in. It’s ok, keep going. The more you have time alone, the easier it will become to quiet your mind. During your quiet time tell the Lord why you’re there, what you’re feeling and then just wait on Him; He’ll give you everything you need, sometimes right then, sometimes as you go about your day. Trust Him and when you hear, obey. Your quiet time gives life, don’t go without it. Let me know how having quiet time has made your life better.

3 Things To Avoid If You Desire a Great Week

If you’re feeling like I am, you’re probably ready to have a great week. What’s a great week? I’m talking about a week of intentional living. A week where you live your life on purpose and with a purpose. A week that will leave you feeling so fulfilled that you’re bursting from the seams with joy. Have you ever had a week like this? I have and whenever it happened it was usually because I planned a really good week, I was intentional about having an amazing week. Do you want a week like this? Do you believe this type of week is possible and that it’s possible for you?

I asked the question about you believing that a great week being possible for you because I have encountered so many women and men who want to have a better life but believe that it’s too late or it’s not possible because they’re already living life a certain way. This type of thinking has to go. I want you to know that an amazing life is very possible for you, especially if you’re not doing these 3 things.

3 Things To Avoid If You Desire a Great Week.

  1. Not making a decision. The first step to having a great week is to choose to have one. You have to decide, make a decision, without it you won’t be committed to ensuring that your week is great.
  2. Not having a plan. A great week can just happen, however, you can have great weeks anytime you desire by being intentional about your week. Planning for a wonderful week increases the likelihood that it will happen. When you’re not intentional about your week you will probably have a lot of incomplete items on your to do list, more stress, and quite possibly miss out on some really good opportunities all because you didn’t make a plan for them.
  3. Not taking action. A great week is going to require taking action. Like I said above, these type of weeks don’t usually just happen. With that in mind, what steps are you taking, not talking about, what are you actually doing to ensure that you have an epic week?

I created a FREE 4 week email course called The Life You Really Want to walk you through steps to take to having a wonderful life. It’s going to be fun, join me! The goal of the course is for you to experience how the power of being intentional can change your life. If you want to:

  1. Get clear on what you want your life to be like.
  2. Wake up ready to greet your day instead of dreading it.
  3. Be motivated to get things done.
  4. Have a spectacular life.

An amazing life is possible for you. Your entire life can change because you are intentional about your week. Which of the 3 Things To Avoid If You Desire a Great Week will you be turning around? Sign up for the Life You Really Want email course and start having great weeks now. SIGN UP HERE

The High Cost of Settling: Are you Settling?

Catacombs: Paris, France

How many times have you eaten pasta when what you really wanted was a nice cheesy burrito? Or stayed in a relationship with someone you knew wasn’t “the one”, but you didn’t want to “put yourself” out there again? How about this one, remained in a job that left you feeling like you died a little every day because in 3 more years you’ll be vested? Settling seems like the easy thing to do because it doesn’t require change but it comes with a very high cost.

So, are you settling? If you answer yes to several of these then you’re probably settling. Are you:

  • Bored
  • Tired a lot
  • Daydreaming a lot
  • Procrastinating:
  • Not excited about your day
  • Have a lot of excuses for not taking action
  • Not taking action
  • Envious of others
  • Self-medicating
  • Saying “I wish I  could…” I wish I had…” I hoped I would have had…” “I regret that I didn’t…”
  • Doubting yourself
  • Doubting that you can have what you want

On the surface, settling seems easy to do, however, it comes with a high cost. I don’t think you realize just how high. Here’s what settling can cost you:

  • Happiness
  • Opportunity
  • Peace of mind

Wow, that list is pretty powerful. By settling you are setting yourself up for a life of unhappiness, stress, frustration, and lots of missed opportunities. Is that how you really want to live your life? Do you really prefer unhappiness over happiness, frustration and stress over peace of mind? I didn’t think so. So, why is that each day that you wake up you choose what you don’t really want, each day you wake up and make the decision to settle for what you do not want? Sounds harsh right? Hopefully it’s the wake up call for you to make a different choice. There is a high cost for settling. Are you settling? Stay tuned for steps you can take to stop settling and make your dream life your real life. You can read more about making your dream life your real life here: Your Dream Life Can Become Your Real Life

Share with me what settling has cost you and what you’re going to do about it.

Your Dream Life Can Become Your Real Life


  I am frustrated by people who talk about a life they would love to live and do nothing to make it happen
. If there is one thing that I want you to get from reading this article it is that your dream life can become your real life.

If you’re dreaming of a different way of living then what you’re dreaming of is possible. You have to believe it and take steps to make it happen. Faith is having complete trust in something (dictionary.com). Trust your dream, trust that it is possible for you and go after it.

Believing that your dream can become a reality is difficult for a lot of people; I don’t want you to be one of the people who continues to doubt your dream. Say this out loud, “My dream life can become my real life”, say it until you believe it and then take steps to make it happen. Your dream life can become your real life.

What I do

Did you know that I was an environmental toxicologist and a college instructor before becoming a personal development coach? I’ve learned so much in both careers that I am also able to use as a coach. Every experience that you have has a purpose. What roads have you traveled to get where you are today? Make the most of all of it.

You may be wondering, what does a Personal Development Coach do? Well, personal development is about you committing to investing in you. Life is much more rewarding and fulfilling when you invest in yourself, when you take action to make things happen vs hoping they’ll happen or regretting they didn’t happen.

As a Personal Development Coach I show you how to become a person who takes action.
-If you’re unhappy with the way you’re living your life I can help you find joy and purpose in your life.
-If you’re feeling stuck, I can show you how to get unstuck.
-If you’re living life on auto-pilot, I can help you become an active participant in your life.
-If you’re not taking action in your life, I can show you how to become a person who takes action.
These are just some of the things I can help with. Questions?  Schedule a complimentary conversation, let’s talk. SCHEDULE CALL
