On your mark…

The moment is here! I’m perched at the starting line ready to run. I’m waiting…waiting…the shot never fired!

Fast forward 20 years, and I am still crouched at the starting line with my eye on the prize and getting nowhere. That was one of my first lessons about life, stop waiting for someone else to dictate when it’s time to GO. Live now because time moves really fast, and in a blink of an eye you will look back at your life and wonder where you are.  Guess what?  You’ve been at the starting line the whole time. This is midlife! That moment you realize you are not living at your full potential and it’s time to change.

Get Set!

Time to get moving! I don’t mean let’s sweat to the oldies, ride through Watopia on a Peloton, or dust off that yoga mat (not just yet). I mean really start thinking about your thinking process.  Imagine about how many times you think negative thoughts about yourself and don’t even realize it! If you are anything like me, it is a lot.  Here’s my solution.  Stop attracting negative energy.  Yes, you are a giant magnet attracting the energy you put out.

Try these 3 simple rules for one week, heck, try one day.  I guarantee you will feel a difference:

Stop and think before you speak; If its kind, continue. If its negative, find the positive and only speak that truth.

Forgive yourself and others; nobody is perfect.

Smile; everyone is going through something and could use the support.

Go!

For those of you still at the starting line, here’s your gun shot! Make an effort to never give up or look back, and if you truly want to get your groove back know that it takes time. Be patient with the process, and I promise it will be easier as you continue through the journey.

I have chosen this platform to share my thoughts and experiences as a woman, mother, artist, wife, student, educator, and leadership professional. I am vulnerable and excited all at the same time, but I’m going to stay positive and trust my intuition that I’m not the only one learning to be mindful. I encourage you to comment about your process and how I may have helped you through sharing my story.

Lets’ do this!

Author: Been there, done that...

I don’t claim any professional title (yet), but I do claim every experience that has shaped me to write this 30 second elevator pitch. Every little coincidence, huge mistake, or subtle growth in thought is mine. Growth in thought doesn’t come without tenacity and because I have an insatiable hunger for knowledge, I am currently a graduate student specializing in Leadership Coaching. Naturally, as an empath, coaching comes with ease since I actively listen with every one of my senses. I can be occasionally funny, and unapologetically passionate about making you smile. I like to create art with words, makeup, photographs, or painting and the choice of medium depends on my mood. I hope you enjoy my words here, follow me, and tell a friend.
