If you’re over the age of 30…

WARNING: If you’re over the age of 30 you may be triggered by this week’s Weekly Focus. … In the last of couple years, I have heard a number of phrases on repeat: “When I was your age…” “You just wait until you get older…” “I’m just not as young as I used to be…”Continue reading “If you’re over the age of 30…”

Do you stand up in the wind?

In a recent interview, I was asked “what’s the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you?” I had to chew on this for a minute… but as I began thinking about it, I realized that the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me is to relentlessly ask me WHY. …And then allow meContinue reading “Do you stand up in the wind?”

You’ve been lied to

The propaganda ministry lied to you. They victimized your situation. They told you it’s because of someone else. They championed the moments of despair and became silent in moments of joy. It’s a slippery slope you know… Believing the lie… Believing that we have no say in the direction or momentum of our life. WHATContinue reading “You’ve been lied to”

Working IN to discover what’s within

Two weeks ago I said that life IS fair and encouraged us to recognize the patterns that exist in our life that so fairly and so generously give us repeated opportunity for growth. Last week I said that the life we are living is the life we have created and encouraged us to take ownershipContinue reading “Working IN to discover what’s within”

The root of happiness

A mentor of mine once said “if you don’t know what happiness is, how will you know when it arrives”… If we haven’t said it ourselves, I’m sure we’ve heard someone else say – “I just want to be happy.” It’s valid… but it’s quite vague. I’ve shared this in a previous weekly focus, butContinue reading “The root of happiness”

Suspend your disbelief

This week’s focus begins with a few questions… What would happen if you sidelined your ego? What would happen if you silenced your doubts? What would happen if you got out from under the expectations that you THINK others have of you? What would happen if you were to suspend your disbelief and consider aContinue reading “Suspend your disbelief”

Return to play

This week’s focus is an extension of last week’s focus – the opposite of play is NOT work … it’s depression. As I’ve continued to read Stuart Brown’s book, Play, I’ve continued to highlight, think, marinate, and hopefully implement and share a few takeaways so that others can do the same. The second half ofContinue reading “Return to play”

The opposite of play is NOT work

The opposite of play is NOT work … it’s depression. I’m currently reading a book called Play, written by medical doctor, researcher, psychiatrist and founder of the National Institute for Play, Stuart Brown. I had heard of this book years ago, but finally picked it up off the shelf after talking with multiple people whoContinue reading “The opposite of play is NOT work”

The world is moved by your decision to move

I think that sometimes when we think of movement we picture exertion, sweat, kettlebells, standing on top of a peak in a muscle shirt … all great, but it almost puts movement in a box, and it puts it up on an inaccessible shelf. Movement doesn’t require a gym. It doesn’t require athletic clothing, aContinue reading “The world is moved by your decision to move”

What you aren’t changing – you’re choosing.

I recently listened to a thought-provoking podcast about the power that lies within asking for what you want and how it impacts your ability to create the life you imagine. If I haven’t already mentioned – I’m a podcast junkie! In all honesty, ASKING is always something that I have struggled with. Be it guiltContinue reading “What you aren’t changing – you’re choosing.”
