Is A Lack Of Self-Confidence Holding You Back?

Social situations and venturing into new territory with work or relationships is something we all face. And do you know what? It isn’t always easy, especially if you lack self-confidence. I've found that what really holds women back is the cross between owning their personal value and putting way too much emphasis on what others think of them. Gaining enough courage to meet new people or ask the boss for a raise takes time and you do have to try. That means being willing to risk rejection or getting results that are not ideal for you. This can be a trial and error process. BTW, I thought it would be fun to let some beautiful felines decorate today's pos

The Awakening

Being awakened is a beautiful thing. And I don't just mean in a spiritual sense, although it is that, too.

In part, it's our collaborative nature. But it's also because, as young girls and women, we receive such mixed messages from everyone about what it means to be female.

Rebel Mind Control

Women are creatures of habit. We tend to get stuck on autopilot much of the time. The positioning gets comfortable and our thoughts are familiar. It seems to work well enough there that we put down roots like a mighty oak. Unfortunately, that camp usually is due to fear, negative thoughts, feelings of inadequacy, and ignoring the sense that there is more to life. Well, guess what? The problem isn't that we comfortably rest under the shade of a tree, it is when we decide to stay there with the excuses, fears, and debilitating thoughts.

The Stowaway

Ah, yes, the stowaway...to whom or what are you referring, Kellie? Well, I thought it was about time to talk about the big pink elephant in the room...the MS (Multiple Sclerosis). Many people have asked me what it is like, while others politely avoid the conversation altogether in fear of offending or making me feel bad...yes, I know they do that.

Your Weekly Dose of Diva: The First Step After Everything Falls Apart…

Here on the wet coast, it's, well, it is very wet. As I look out my window I see a whole lot of mud and three rather soggy horses. The west coast is not particularly perfect country for horses, whose roots are in high, arid, dry places. But, these mares, despite their somewhat low spirits and muddy legs, seem to keep on keeping on just fine. In fact, that's a bit of what I wanted to touch on this week. For many, these last few weeks have been a roller coaster...and I started to get really curious about what the first powerful step is when it comes to things falling apart.

Are You Potential Or Price Focused?

In this material world of ours, it's not hard to get "price" focused. "How much is it going to cost me?" and "I can't pay that much." frequently roll off our tongues like deep set affirmations. Well, actually, these and other words and thoughts can become infused into our minds as the normal way of walking through life. I'm not just talking about money and financial things either. There is a price for everything we do or experience in life. But there is also a potential or a payoff. Which one are you focused on?
