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!

HAPPINESS IS AN INSIDE JOB

I've been speaking to so many people lately and in my informal poll about what they are looking for, craving or needing most in their lives... I've finally narrowed down what people want most.                                                                                  
Are you ready for it?
The Number 1 thing that people are looking for most is:

The Miracle of the Mundane World ~ 3 Ways to Bring JOY Back Into Your Life!

Life is a Miracle and a Mystery

 At the beginning of this year, I set an intention to bring more JOY back into my life. and to have more fun.
Some of you might know that 2018 was a fairly rocky year for me; (as I know it was for many of you too) but I'm a firm believer in letting the past teach me what I need to learn and pay attention to living in the present.                                                      
So, in January- I made the commitment to myself to see the miracles in the every day, take pleasure in the mundane world and stop living in my brain so much.
                                 How is that working out for me?

STRESS REDUCTION AND RELAXATION
STRESS REDUCTION AND RELAXATION

January 30, 2019

A recent talk at a local library-(see picture) led me to a fascinating discovery:

Humans are an interesting bunch.

Most of us spend many hours, many days and many years in thinking mode.

We think of what has happened to us, or what will happen.

The human brain ruminates, plots, plans, worries, and dreams up many “what if” scenarios. 

Wouldn’t you like to get to a point where you are running the show of what your brain thinks about? 

What if you were able to take a big step back from the mind chatter and to sort out what is important and what is distraction?  How would you feel about being able to make decisions from a clear and calm center?
