Get Comfortable with Getting Uncomfortable

“Courage is the power of letting go of the familiar.” Raymond Lindquist

My husband and I are taking salsa lessons. We’re only on our 4th lesson, but this week my husband asked the very honest question, “Will it always feel this uncomfortable?” To which our very wise dance instructor responded, “If you’re not uncomfortable, then you’re not growing.”

Little White Lies

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself.

The Truth about Showing Up

“Today I make a stand for truth, as I extend my perceptions beyond what my senses reveal to me, to what I know to be true in my heart.”  Marianne Williamson, A Year of Miracles.

My entire life coaching practice is built on the concept of truth. Most people’s initial reaction is that truth is all about being honest and not lying – at least not intentionally. While that’s true (pardon the pun), it’s so much bigger and more beautiful than that. It’s about getting in touch with your own personal truth – that which God placed on your ...continue reading...
