"At the center of your being you have the answer;
you know who you are and you know what you want."
Thank YOU 🌹🌹🌹 so much for your responses to last week's newsletter where I rcounted my "mishap"-
I'm so grateful for all of you who checked in to see if I was truly OK.
Didn't read about my scary highway adventure in NY State?

As of this writing, I'm STILL not sure about the condition
of my car and hope to have it resolved soon.
I wanted to write to you this week about what I'm experiencing and what many of my clients are experiencing as well.
Trying to stay calm and peaceful by being hit with a barrage of
Some petty annoyances, and some big boulders that have to be overcome
and a lot of ickiness in the meantime.
Couple that with the gratefulness that it's not as bad as what some others have going on, and appreciating that we get to wake up every day.
I don't know about you, but sometimes life can feel as janky as a wooden rollercoaster in that old amusement park, where we hear every
creak and groan as the rusty wheels roll over the ancient tracks.
(get the picture?)
Exhilarated and terrified in the same moment!
Here's what I mean:
On my morning walk, I take deep breaths while
appreciate the beauty of nature all around me.
I sip my morning coffee in a few moments of stillness.
I glance at my phone and there
is a text with unfortunate news for me
about my car..
When I call back, there is more frustration;
and the person keeps repeating a scripted answer.
I feel my Sicilian blood start to boil and
then I lose my patience and my "nice girl" fades
away as I start getting more insistent on having things taken care of properly.
"Nice girl has completely left the building and I find myself demanding satisfaction and answers" (whatever that means)...
When I hang up, I feel that I'm riding the fine line between control, no control, nice, and assertive, power or not, not wanting to cause trouble, but being a squeaky enough well to move things forward.
And, many of my clients are reporting the same thing
in thier own form.
I refer to this as "Spiritual Whiplash"
How can we "return to center" everytime we get thrown off ?
1) Place hand on heart and take a deep belly breath, exhale slowly
2) Bring awareness to the present moment
3) ACCEPT that this current situation isn't a permanent situation;and I can move forward from here.
4) Focus on my core (solar plexus) and tell myself "this too shall pass"
Try it for yourself and see!
The point is, that life is filled with a series of events,
some good, some not so good and some downright awful.
We CANNOT control what happens to us-
we can only control how we react.
So, react as you neeed (my temper tantrums above); but
allow yourself to come back to center as often as you can.
You can truly HARNESS the Power Within!
I leave you with this:
🔥 What pattern or habit am I ready to release?"🔥
I can assure you that the answer to that question will seed
your next step(s.)
I LOVE helping people walk with Power, Peace and Purpose
Have a great week! I'm Celebrating YOU,
with so much love,
PS: Feeling wonky and need additional support?
It's important to believe in yourself and shine your light again.
If you've been playing it small and safe (and I understand these past few years haven't been easy for many); now is the time to get BACK ON TRACK, reclaim your power and live to the true reason you were put on this earth.
