How to Move Closer to Your Dreams

Follow Your Dreams

"I AM a work in progress...as long as I work on myself, I will progress!" ~cathie

Passion can be a tricky thing, eh?

One minute we're all excited about a project and just thinking about it makes us come alive with possibilities!
We're all jazzed and for a moment; all of our fears disappear or take a back seat.  We feel the pulsing through our body and we feel unstoppable.
Know that feeling?
Keep reading...
We're so giddy that we are going to make a big change in our lives and finally live that dream! We know it will be challenging, but when we're in that passion state; we know that we can handle anything that comes up.  Right?
Next; we're still sooooo excited; that we share our big idea with a family member, a partner, a good friend........ then what happens?
They let the wind out of our sails, by being negative, critical all in the guise of the "I'm concerned about you" or "How are you ever going to make a living doing that? or the ever popular, "You never finish anything you start"
And, there you have it.  You trudge back to your room, deflated, dejected and discouraged.
We all have friends, family, partners like that!
Here's a bit of advice that I found to be very helpful:
When you begin the process of moving toward your dreams~ stay protective. Don't share your larger plan with anyone just yet. Keep it close to the vest. Eventually, you will need to get support; but choose carefully who is going to be privy to your heart.
 
People mean well, but when they begin to inject their doubts and fears into your dreams; it's time to disengage.  Find the right and healthy support system for you (either a trusted friend who believes in you, a support group, or a life coach who can help you create a plan) 
Decide from this moment on that everything you do, say or decide is dedicated to living your highest purpose. That means that all your choices will be made from L O V E not fear.
 
Take some time and get curious about your deeper needs and desires, they're not always what you think. 
Keep going and reach for your DREAMS!

Conscious Eating- The Divine Dining Method
Conscious Eating- Mindful Ways to Navigate the Holiday Season

November 07, 2018

“Be one with the food”…that is what I always tell my children, when they are shoveling their dinner.  Conscious eating is about  being completely aware of the act of eating. It is not the shoveling or mindless stuffing of one’s face.  When we are fully engaged in the process of eating- we can deeply experience the tastes, sensations, and aromas.  When you bring a Conscious Eating habit to your life; you’ll be kinder to your digestive system and you won’t overeat.  You’ll be in tune with your body and stop when full.  If you aren’t ready to make the whole transformation of your eating habits, then try it with a snack or  a light meal.  Food can become a spiritual experience, when it is approached from a mindful perspective.

I had plans.... glorious plans...

Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.

For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.

To be truthful, I've had some  'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose.  I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
