Is Your Past Holding You Back?

Our past is an important part of our history, it shapes who we are today, after all. But it can also hold us back from growing into the person we truly want to be, and living a life that’s calling us.

So many of us have dreams and set big goals, but our hang-ups from years ago can keep us from realizing them. Past disappointments, failures, or beliefs in ourselves can keep us stuck, telling us painful things like…

“You’ve never been organized, so what makes you think you can be organized now?”

“You’ve never succeeded at committing to a healthy lifestyle, so why would you be able to now?”

“Your relationships never work out, so what makes this one any different?”

If you have a hunch that your past is interfering with your bright future, double down on your belief in yourself by making an effort to silence your inner critic. When you hear that mean voice pop into your head, make the choice to shift your inner dialogue from one that doubts yourself to one that champions you. 

Remind yourself the past is over, and you’re capable of whatever you set your mind to. 

Wayne Dyer used to say, “You’ll see it when you believe it.” Believe in yourself like it’s your job so you can live the happy life you deserve. 

If you need some gentle guidance, next week we’re opening the doors to our brand new program, Love Yourself More. Keep your eye out for our email announcement so you can join this online program for a special introductory price and get an amazing bonus.

The Best Way to Say Goodbye to a Year

As you get excited for 2024 (or to slam the door shut on 2023!), it’s good to take a moment to reflect on the past year by taking inventory. 

You may have heard me talk about this before, but if you’re new to taking inventory, it’s a simple exercise and the best way I know to set the stage for an even better year ahead. And all it takes is a pen, paper and 15 minutes of uninterrupted time.

Bring More Calm to Your Holiday Season

Bring More Calm to Your Holiday Season

While this wonderful time of year comes with much fun and merriment, it can also drive many of us to feel overwhelmed. 

This might be the first holiday season you’re hosting and anxiously planning for all the shopping, decorating and cooking. Perhaps you’re traveling and getting a bit nervous about the holiday traffic and crowded airports.

The most wonderful time of year is here. While it’s easy to get caught up in all the cooking and decorating, there’s nothing more important this season than truly enjoying the people around you and savoring the moments.

Instead of scrambling to find the perfect gifts, this year, give yourself and loved ones the gift of being fully present by disconnecting from your tech. 

Why it’s Time to Try Something New

Why it’s Time to Try Something New

How long has it been since you tried something new? 

Whether it’s walking into a new fitness class, signing up for language lessons, trying out a new hobby or activity, or even attempting to cook a new meal, breaking from routine and trying something new makes us come alive. 

Trying new things makes us step outside of our comfort zone (which isn’t always easy!). But doing so not only spices up our day, but reminds us of just how capable we are.
