Streakers as you can see I feel short of following my streak of blogging daily. The last day of our streak I flew to Malaga Spain to work on a new novel on site! The trip was beautiful... inspiring and the framework for my new story currently titled "Annie" is well underway. But before I get into the many thoughts running through my head I wanted to congratulate all of you for sticking with me to to set new goals and create fresh habits in our lives over the month of August.
Don't you agree our lives can become so consumed with all we do that adding new things can be difficult and even draining. I can't stress enough the importance of taking time to "be still" and listen to your inner voice. Over working yourself and staying busy doesn't make you more productive, or superior to others... in fact we should not compare ourselves to others as we are all uniquely gifted and the more we focus on enjoying each day and living authentic the more at peace we will become and the more you will do what matters and not stress over things that would normally run you into the ground and have sleepless nights.
I have no doubt tried many things in my life... if I could count all of the different ideas I've had, jobs I've applied for, jobs I've worked and directions I've gone in I would probably astonish you. I do not however regret the journey. My journey has lead me to where I am today and for that I am beyond grateful. I've never experienced the kind of peace I now have.. the absolute knowledge of my life path and my passion growing daily for writing and of course creating.. my love for working with my life coaching clients has developed into a beautiful relationship and watching them (you) blossom and find their life path is encouraging and makes me happy.
So how was the streak for you? Would you do it again? What would you change? What did you learn about yourself?
As you begin the count down of this year go easy on yourself... take time to "be still" find your unique talent and put a laser focus on it. The contentment you will gain and the peace of stepping into your authentic life will push away the stress and mess that consumes so many living the "normal" life. A speech I have given many times to audiences throughout the US and Europe encourages you to live CRAZY... I will write more about this in my next blog but before I end let me break down living CRAZY..
C - Creative
R - Resources
A - Assertive
Z - Zeal
Y - You
So stay tuned for more talk of living CRAZY and for today celebrate your victories! Here's a short followup clip from an event I led in Fairbanks Alaska back in April.
Lots of Love,
