Happy Saturday ☀️⁠

Here's a reminder for you - confident people aren't born that way - they become confident be learning to overcome the same fears and insecurities that WE ALL face.⁠

If you look at others and sometimes wish you could be as confident as they are - I want you to know - YOU CAN BE!⁠

I'm cheering you on!⁠

We all want to live thriving lives, but oftentimes the demands of life cause us to slip into survival mode - losing pieces of who we are in the process.⁠

Journaling is one tool you could use to carve out a little space in the midst of the chaos. It can allow us to listen to what we need and keeps us stay connected to our true sense of self. ⁠

Is journaling a part of your weekly practice?⁠

How much time do you waste in comparison or worry?⁠

👉🏼We choose where we give our energy.⁠

You can spend your time measuring up to others or growing your self-confidence and becoming who you are meant to be. ⁠

My doctoral work was all about what helps people THRIVE in life not just survive.⁠

I found time and time again that these 4 areas were what helped us spiral UP ⁠

1. fulfillment - what fulfills me?⁠
2. affirmation - what affirms me?⁠
3. growth - where do I want to grow more?⁠
4. achievement - where do I want to achieve?⁠

In my book I call them the 4 tires because if one of these areas is out of balance they can throw off all of our forward momentum.⁠

What tire do you need to be paying attention to right now?⁠

What can we learn from pain?
Many times the pain we endure comes from loss. This week, I sit down with my friend Joe Kaufman again to discuss how loss and pain can actually help us gain clarity.

If we allow it, pain can help us live fuller lives because we come to terms with the reality that we have to (and we GET to) choose who we want to be and what we want to do with our time…while we still have it!

Joe is a fount of wisdom and empathy, and this was such an encouraging conversation.

I know you've felt it - that aching feeling that things aren't turning out as you expected. That dreams are not being realized. And worst of all that you aren't quite sure what to do about it.⁠

But I don't believe that's true. I believe that you have all the wisdom you need inside of you - you just need a little help drawing it to the surface.⁠

THIS is why I wrote my book - to give you practical steps - to help you unearth your own clarity - to set you on the course towards the life you've always wanted - the Life You're Made For.⁠

Want to gain clarity? Get curious!

Get curious about:

👉🏼what you’re feeling.
👉🏼what you want.
👉🏼what you’re afraid of.
👉🏼what you’re grateful for.
👉🏼what makes you feel alive.
👉🏼what brings joy.

Get curious about your own life! This involves waking up from the busyness and rushing. This involves slowing down and noticing. This involves asking lots of questions ….and listening for the answers.

What do you need to get curious about?

The goal of my work is to help you chart a new course toward what makes you come fully alive. To provide practical ways for you to gain traction in living that better life so you look forward to waking up and living out each day.⁠

The process I use is called 3C Living. 3 C's that can change the way you show up in the world:⁠

Clarity - knowing who you are and where you want to go.⁠

Confidence - believing in your potential and the unique strengths you have to offer, it opens up a whole world of new possibility.⁠

Courage - taking action and bravely stepping out in new ways.⁠

My book - The Life You're Made For covers this process in detail! Click my link in bio to find it on Amazon!⁠

Did you know that I focused my research on the emotional health⁠
of high-functioning women as they transitioned from college to the working world.⁠

Most studies showed significant signs of ⁠
👉🏼depression⁠
👉🏼anxiety⁠
👉🏼and fear⁠

With discussions consistently referred to women in this⁠
transitional phase as spiraling down. Researchers began identifying this social phenomenon in similar findings across the board.⁠

I wanted to change the conversation! I wanted to talk about how we could spiral up.⁠

Do these studies align with your experience? Yes or no in the comments!⁠

Okay, maybe the past month was a rough one. And a month is only four weeks. So let me rephrase the question.⁠

Thinking back to where you were a year ago, are you closer today⁠
to attaining those dreams than you were then?⁠

Maybe a better question is: Do you even remember what your dreams are?⁠

The world has a way of running us hard and wearing us out. Sooner or later, the goal is just to get through the day. There is no thriving. It’s just survive today so we can wake up and do it all over again.⁠

If this feels like you - I have so much compassion for you. I want you to hear this - you were not meant to live this way. You were made for MORE.⁠

I am passionate about helping you reclaim and then move towards your dreams! I coach people through this process all the time - it's why I show up in this online space and in fact, it's why I wrote my book.⁠

If you're ready to stop merely surviving let me know by dropping a ♥️ in the comments⁠

Are you at a crossroad?⁠
Crossroads can be intense periods of analytical⁠
reflection, to-do lists, what-if scenarios, and desperate peering into the future to guarantee an outcome while being haunted by the idea of making the wrong decision. ⁠

Sounds super fun, right?⁠

Life can take a toll on us and our decision-making processes. We learn quickly the impact of one wrong turn. And we also learn the art of counting the costs.⁠

This can make us want to speed through crossroad decisions. Wanting desperately to simply be on the other side of the difficult choices we are facing. ⁠

But not slowing down is even more costly. Not examining the state of our lives and hoping more busyness will eventually lead to a life of more peace is a losing bet.⁠

On a scale of 1-10 how difficult is it for you to pause at the crossroads? Let me know in the comments!⁠

What happens when you find yourself stuck at a crossroad? ⁠

We've all been there or will any some point, and we all handle it differently. Dan Haakenson and I sit down and talk about how we have handled our crossroads.⁠

So much of it depends on having the right people in your life.⁠

Do you have a counselor, a guide, someone who can pause with you and help figure out the next direction?⁠

Listen in as Dan and I lay out a better way to handle the crossroads you face in life.⁠

One of my biggest epiphanies came at a crossroad moment for me several years ago - ⁠

I am the only one stopping me from living a Big, Beautiful, Thriving life.⁠

This poignant realization made me take responsibility for fully owning my journey and the life story I was writing. It made me take that crossroads moment seriously! This is what was at stake - my OWN LIFE.⁠

I only get one shot at this life, and I want to make it count.⁠

You do too.⁠
It’s time to step away from anything that smacks of simply surviving. ⁠

Share this post as your declaration that you're ready to start THRIVING.⁠

What do we do at the crossroads of our life?⁠

The Crossroads are the spaces in our lives where we have a choice to make: do we stay where we are or do we move forward? ⁠

We often get stuck at the crossroads because we aren't sure HOW to move forward. ⁠

What do YOU do to make hep you make decisions at the crossroads?⁠

If you’re feeling stuck right now - you need to check out my book The Life You’re Made For - it’s the handbook for helping you gain the clarity and then the courage to move towards your dreams!
