By | 2016-11-25T02:24:50-08:00 February 16th, 2016|Beginning Again, Financial Personalities, Financial Self-Help, Self-Help|

I am curious about the stories people tell themselves about money. I have been gaining self-awareness about how my stories have majorly impacted my life and so I was interested to learn if other's stories have had the same impact on their own lives. A friend kindly offered to share her story with me. She already [...]

Shifting the Stories We Tell Ourselves

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:50-08:00 February 3rd, 2016|Divorce Self-Help, Self-Help|

I think our beliefs and the stories we tell ourselves drive our lives. It is what your head is telling you that determines if you will have a good day or bad day. Yes, I believe we manifest our destiny by our beliefs. I came to this realization after a lot of self-reflection. What is it that makes [...]

Work Life Balance

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:50-08:00 January 27th, 2016|Self-Help|

Do you have your own business? Are you contemplating starting your own business? I recommend you think about putting structures into place to maintain work-life balance. Or not. Yeah, I'm conflicted about this. I love my job. I love it so much that other things have basically flown out the window. Today someone asked me [...]

It’s Mostly Perspective

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:50-08:00 December 10th, 2015|Financial Self-Help, Self-Help|

Last's week's post is missing.  Where did it go? It got decimated by the negative internal chatter and negative future focus that was going on in my brain for the last two weeks. When I finally got out from it, this week's blog post presented itself: Your victimhood perspective is making you stuck. You know [...]

Revelation and Patience

I have a friend and she has two sets of what look like playing cards, called Life Cards and Angel Cards. Every once in awhile, she drags them out of the cupboard and we pick one of each (without looking). It's something that takes about 10 minutes but it is an exercise that drags us back [...]

Relationship George Vs. Independent George

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:51-08:00 November 18th, 2015|Divorce Self-Help, Self-Help|

Not sure if many of you watched Seinfeld back in the day it originally aired. I did and there is one episode that really resonates with me right now. What I remember about the episode is the fact that George was in conflict with his two personas:  Independent George and Relationship George. Relationship George was [...]

Coaching verses Commanding

  "People turn up in your life when you need them." This was said to me by someone recently and she was essentially predicting her appearance in my life. At the time of our meeting, I was actually thinking: "I do not need this person at all in my life." She blew in the door and [...]

Transition Days

By | 2016-11-25T02:24:51-08:00 August 18th, 2015|Divorce Self-Help, Self-Help|

I often wonder if there are other parents out there like me. I start wondering it about five minutes after dropping my kids off at school. Day one of five days they are with their dad on our 2255 parenting schedule. Are there other parents out there that know what a 2255 parenting schedule means? [...]
