How Are You Speaking to Yourself?

HufPo.Text.Speaking

I used to speak to myself with such unkindness, most of the time not even realizing it or it’s impact.

Luckily, I no longer do and shared a bit of my story in my most recent Huffington Post blog.

I Dropped The Ball

Balls.text

It’s been a long time since I’ve shared.

As working women I know you can relate to juggling too many balls.  The feeling of just too much – that something has to give. My blog was a ball I chose to drop. 

I dropped it with a choice to be kind to myself. Full stop.

 

But now I’m back.

I have clarity and intention.

My mission is to be back in service to women just like us.

Women who want to:

  •        Thrive at work and in life but too often feel like we are failing at both.
  •         Do what we have been avoiding with increased confidence.
  •         Expand our networks in ways that add value to us and work within our schedule
  •         Connect with other like-minded women in relevant and productive ways
  •         Stop feeling like we are alone.
  •         Learn and leverage how others navigate similar scenarios

Sure, but why does it feel like such a challenge sometimes? 

Because this is life and our lives are full.  

And…it is the ONLY life we have to live.

What I now know is that the details around us are not going to change, just how we choose to navigate them can. 

But, we don’t know what we don’t know. 

Which leads me to my mission.  

My mission is to be an outlet for women, just like us. To plug into and to create the change we desire.  To leverage the experiences of other women in service of each other. I have some exciting new projects on the go that I CAN’T wait to share!

But in the meantime…

I just wrote a Huffington Post article titled: Is Status Quo Killing You? .

A great place to start is choosing to do things differently. To start taking inspired action. To get out of your own way, #GOOYOW, so you can live a life that brings you way more fun, joy, and success. 

Until the next time!

Best wishes, me.

3 Ways to Navigate Difficult People

I recently had a conversation with a friend who was wrongfully dismissed from her job.

Blind sighted.

Totally unexpected. 

Retrospectively she can now see how her boss had been planning her demise for the past 6 months.

No matter if it’s a boss, colleague, family member, neighbour, etc… difficult people are all around.

3 Things to Remember When Navigating Tough Decisions

In the past few weeks I have been hearing from women who are feeling totally stuck.

Being at a point in their careers and lives where they have to make a big decision to take a course, to go for the promotion, etc… that impact not only them.

These women are ambitious and want to have exceptional careers and lives, and these decisions were being viewed as at the expense of their families.

3 Steps to Coming Out of Your Low Places

I recently went through a low period.

We all do. We are all human.

I had just come off of my high after completing a road show, hosting workshops for female entrepreneurs in cities across western Canada.   When I came back, I was accessing my landscape and felt defeated and frustrated by a few things.

The details are irrelevant because what brings me down will be different from you, but I know that you too experience struggle.

The point is, we all experience setbacks. Trying times.

Defeated

3 Steps to Take the Struggle Out of Your Juggle

I don’t like the word balance.

I feel that it sets us up for disappointment, and feelings of failure, inadequacy and overwhelm.

In the search for “balance” we often end up simply adding more balls to the ones we are already struggling to juggle.

Spending our everyday just passing ball after ball through the air on autopilot.

Juggling

Are You Being Misinterpreted?

Do you worry about being perceived in a negative way?

It’s often this fear that keeps my clients and other women from doing what they know they need to.

Avoiding self-promotion or asking for one because they don’t want to appear arrogant, demanding, entitled, etc…

Not wanting to follow up with a client because they don’t want to be interpreted as desperate, needy, pushy, etc….

Not wanting to have a challenging conversation because they don’t want to appear confrontational, demanding, etc…

These are all possible and potential outcomes.
