It’s all in the timing. Iv’e heard this over and over during my life, however most of us are pressured to follow a linear path in life, doing things in a certain order. That’s how I grew up believing. You go to school, graduate, get a good job, buy a house, start a family and on to retirement and repeat with grand kids. When things do not follow this pattern we can get depressed because we are not following this herd mentality. We might feel like there is something wrong with us if the timing doesn’t work out according to “plan”.
My life certainly does not follow this pattern and many people who go on to accomplish great things didn’t either. You can not rush, push, force or coerce your time. If you try, you will probably end of feeling like a failure in life and that is so far from the truth.
Your internal clock is different than anyone else’s. Your time will come when you are doing what you love, being who you authentically are, and listening to your heart. Everyone has their own inner clock and it is ticking and keeping time in precise order. Just remember to watch your own watch and not keep time on someone else’s. It’s always your time…….
If you need guidance to get into your own rhythm of life lets talk. Get in touch, it will be one of your greatest gifts you give yourself.

It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do. Moliere
This is such a powerful quote that made me think of all the things I am responsible for. I love my work and feel a deep sense of responsibility to be a great coach. I invest a lot of time, money and energy to improve myself every day. However I feel that being responsible is also about speaking my truth, standing in my truth and stepping into my power.
In the past, I was a people pleaser so I would compromise myself for the sake of others.
That wasn’t being responsible to myself. The first person I must be accountable to is me. To stand in my own power and truly be my best, I must understand my values take responsibility for them. This is being and giving your best. I coach many people who are learning this as well. Learning to say NO and speaking their truth and living their best life is the responsible way.
How about you? Are you ready to stand in your power? If you need help let’s talk.
Here is my Tedx talk to watch too.

We are not here to curse the darkness but to light the candle that can guide us thru that darkness to a safe and sane future. John F. Kennedy
The world has gotten brighter and brighter. It is difficult to really find complete darkness any more. The night sky is veiled with the lights from buildings, homes, and so many sources. In one sense it has helped us progress and feel safer at night, however it has also hindered our connection with the mystical wisdom of the cosmos. It is there that we find the answers to what our souls are questing for. Darkness matters. When we see the natural illumination from the heavens above, we can light the way inward into our hearts.
Far to many people are depressed, even in a world where we have lit all of the darkness corners. Why? We look down instead of looking up! Go into the darkness, connect to the night sky and find the magnificence of where you actually came from.
When I coach people, I help them see their dark side as well as their light. It is there that they get to see their wholeness and get in touch with a part of themselves that was hidden. When you reveal your darkness your light will shine even brighter!
Here some beauty of the night light for your enjoyment.

I was at the airport the other day waiting for my flight to leave when I engaged in a conversation with a retired teacher. I love to meet new people and find out about them. She was telling me how she would love to play Mozart in the morning to her students. She said that it created such a peaceful mood in her class. Classical music has proven to relax and create a profound learning effect on the minds of children. So why isn’t it played in every school? What if each day students walked into their classroom listening to classical music? Can this change the brain waves of the children?
Children as well as adults learn when we are in an environment of feeling safe and nurtured. The prefrontal cortex of the brain is receptive to creating new ideas and willing to open up and share. When we feel threatened and fearful, the brain shuts down and we go into into a fight or flight protective mode. So which environment do you want your children exposed to? Teachers having guns or playing Mozart in the morning?
Raising happy, healthy smart and and peaceful children is the result of proven science. Creating an environment that promotes this is just implementing it. Let’s play Mozart rather than arm the teachers with guns.
Here is some Mozart to start your day!
