Home to the Sunrise

I Hope I get you through to Sunrise On the darkest of nights When you can’t see the lights You come running to me Hoping to see As fast as the night Disappears from the light You can’t seem to stay To help me find my way So I’ll head west To take a rest Hoping the day will come When all my dark nights will sum And with enough energy shown I’ll finally find my own way home

Believe in Yourself and BE YOU

Without labels… who do we know who we are? Simple answer? We don’t… If we were who we are supposed to be, wouldn’t it make sense that we could be who we are? But, we can’t. To belong, we have to be labeled. To be politically active, we have to be labeled. To eat healthy, we have to be labeled. To work out, we have to be labeled. To work, we have to be labeled. To live, we have to be labeled.   What’s wrong with being our self? Nothing really… well, except that means we would have to put in the time and effort to find out who we are, what we stand for, and worst of all… be…

From Rock Bottom to Rock Solid

This was meant to be a personal journal from start to finish… but for some reason I feel it necessary to put the idea “out there” rather than just having it sit in a folder I’ll never touch again… I want to personally thank my clients and a couple friends that have given me an extra boost lately. The boost from my clients made me leave my comfort zone and put together an event I’ve wanted to host for a long time. A separate client gave me some much needed encouragement to simply believe in myself, my mission, my knowledge & talent, and to just keep moving forward… This is probably one of the greatest compliments I could have ever…

Stuck in the middle of change

I have had many long discussions with people about change and growth on many levels and one reoccurring theme stays with me. We must die the death of our old self to fully become the new self we need and want to be.   For so long, I have longed for continuous growth. I wanted to be a certain person… Not anyone else, but I had a vision of who I believed I was. I have written many journals and posted many blogs describing the new version of me and what I was letting go of from my past. I have encountered much resistance over the past several years from exterior forces that have either stunted my growth or fueled…

Are you actually ready to change?

Without accepting who we are and what we do, we cannot change the actions that make us. My process is simple. Really, it is. I ask questions. People answer questions. I ask more questions. People keep talking. I watch body language. I listen to tone of voice. I hear patterns. I ask more questions. What I find interesting is how people tell stories about themselves. With some people I can tell in a matter of minutes they are ready to start moving forward toward their goals. Some people seem to need a little convincing. Most people are too caught up in their own excuses, they don’t even believe they have a problem. (Remember, they called me with the goal of…

Why is our obsession with the scale unhealthy?

Think about it… You start a new diet. You start a new workout routine. You are chugging along and for once you are seeing success beyond the first week! Not only are you still eating right, but you have done all your workouts! Woohoo!!!! You move along and somehow you get past the 90 phenomenon and you keep on losing weight on the scale! But then… all of a sudden you stop seeing “results”… The scale stays stagnate. Maybe you gained a pound or two or ten… even though you have completed your workouts and you haven’t even cheated!!! WTF??!! You start thinking to yourself… what happened?? How did I lose all my progress?? Why is this happening to ME??!!…

Questions…

Questions cause us to think and when we think for ourselves, we learn to control ourselves and our actions. When we take control of our mind, we take control of our body… Then and only then can we take control of our future. We must first die… the death of who we are… it is when we die that our soul is cleansed to be who we want to become. What is the point of dying, if when we are reborn, we do not get to enjoy the pleasures for which we had to pay the price of pain. Learn to control yourself. Learn to control your mind. Learn to control your body. With enough control the strong spirit within…
