How to Change Everything, without Changing a Thing!

It happens to the best of us:  one day we wake up and feel bored, restless, frustrated, and confused with our lives.

Suddenly (but not really ‘suddenly’), everything we’ve worked for feels ‘old hat’ and unfulfilling. We crave something more while fighting off feelings of guilt for not being grateful for what we have.

Like many women over 40, most of us struggle with a deep desire and unrelenting need for something else in our lives, but we can’t quite pinpoint what’s missing, or what will fill that craving.

Instead of trying to figure it out, we push it away, distract ourselves by staying super busy, and let it fester under the surface until one day, all we have left are regrets for a lifetime of wasted opportunities.

7 Reasons Why You Need a Passion Project in Your 40s

Passion projects…

Sounds a little intriguing, right?  Most of us have heard the term and may even have an idea of what it is, but for many women, the idea of dedicating some of their precious time to something on the side isn’t high on the to-do list.

But, let me ask you this...have you ever been so engrossed in something that you lost all sense of time?  You're so completely absorbed by the task at hand that when you look up, you realize several hours have passed, yet you don’t feel tired.

Understanding Your Energetic Vibration

Energy is all around us.  

Energy flows through us, out of us, and around us every minute of every day.  Just because we can’t see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

It’s what powers, via electricity, the necessities in our life.  It’s also what gives us the vigor to plow through our to-do list, sneak in a workout, and juggle the many things we face in a day.

But, our energy isn’t just fueling our ability to get things done, it’s also sending out a vibration which attracts, and repels, many other things in our lives.  Our energetic vibrations play a significant role in our enjoyment and success in life.

The Key to Redesigning Your Life: Let Go of the How

It’s frustrating to feel stuck in life.  

You’re ready for a change and crave something new, but you can’t quite figure out how to make that happen.

Maybe you feel your responsibilities won’t allow it, or you’re afraid to screw things up if you strike out on a new adventure.  

While those may play a part in keeping you stuck, you’re a go-getter, and not used to playing it safe and not taking action.

It’s confusing to deeply feel that something needs to change only to spin your wheels while everything stays the same.

Sound familiar?

Stuck? No Options? Here's how to Start

Tired of dragging yourself through the same-old, same-old every day?

Guess what...you’re not alone!  Part of traveling through life is that we need to reinvent ourselves over time to keep life interesting.  

Unfortunately, with the way most of us live our lives, once we get settled into our careers, have a family that depends on us, and pile on more and more responsibility, we get caught in a rut, and we start to feel stuck.

The life you envisioned for yourself years ago and that you carefully and methodically created for yourself doesn’t quite feel right anymore.

Busy Summer? Don't Forget to Make Yourself a Priority, too!

When the temps rise, and the sun shines, everything seems to slow down just a bit.  It’s Mother Nature’s way to remind us to relax, get outside, and be in the moment.

As lovely as that sounds, it can be hard to do, right?  

To make matters worse, we tend to create lofty expectations about creating the “perfect” summer and not wasting a moment of the season!

While that’s commendable...it’s also setting yourself up for burn-out and disappointments.  First of all, nothing is perfect! Secondly, if you map out exactly how the summer is supposed to play out, you are going to miss the beautiful opportunities that want to flow into your world, simply because it’s not on your agenda or bucket list.

Don't Be Afraid of Adventure: Redefine It!

Let’s face it: many of us spend our days waiting for something to happen.  We either feel stuck in our life, or we’re on autopilot and just cruising along.  All the while, we’re waiting for something to change.

This isn't living, folks.  This is just existing.

Life should be more than just existing!  Yes, we have to adult on a daily basis, but we also have to take intentional time to have a little fun.

Why You Need Both Adventure & Inventure In Your Life

If I asked you if you knew yourself well, I’m betting you’d say ‘of course’ and then look at me like I have a second head. Right?

But, here’s a surprising fact: most people, don’t actually know themselves all that well (I don’t have stats to back that up, so it’s based on my experience with working and talking with people!).  

Most people think they know themselves well, but in reality, they only know what’s on the surface.

6 Ways to Boost Your Resilience & Thrive in Life

The summer I was 23, I moved 1,000 miles away from home (to a place I’d never been, to an apartment I’d never seen, and with roommates I’d never met) to start my post-college grown-up job.

It was exciting, but also terrifying!

Less than two months after I arrived at my new home, it was a beautiful, sunny Sunday afternoon and I was just starting to feel settled in when I got a call that my dad had suffered a massive heart attack and died earlier that morning.
