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. I mean truly discovering, or in most cases rediscovering, yourself- the one you put on a shelf because someone thought you were too much, too big, too wild, too whatever! We, women, tend to do that. 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.

You Can Eat Healthy On A Budget!

As a women's personal and business development coach, I have heard lots and lots of reasons (aka, excuses) why some things can't be done, why they are, somehow, restricted from the same opportunities to be healthy, wealthy, and wise as the rest of the well-to-doers out there. Well, I'm sort of done with listening to all of that bullshit. I will no longer enable anyone in my life to complain about how terrible their lives are and thrust precarious excuses as to why they can't change things.

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.
