Making Life Rock

Embody The Love…

Love is... Adulation, affection, devotion, emotion, infatuation, relish, worship… there are lots of words that are synonymous for love, but nothing can replace LOVE. It means so much, can be so much, and yet, it can be as simple as loving the colour orange. But what about embracing LOVE as a whole concept, about being LOVE? It’s about taking the energy of LOVE and emitting it throughout your day, sharing it, releasing it, circulating it and regenerating it. What does all that mean?

Dare To Love More

There is a song that says to live like there is no more tomorrow and love like you are on borrowed time... Time is so precious. We never know when our last breath will be. We all have people around us suffering in many different ways.

I Is Also For Intuition

Intuition is really one of those concept words that could, depending on who you are, have multiple and various meanings. To me it is a compilation of signals from body, mind, and spirit that help direct my choices and actions. I consider myself intuitive and usually able to recognize my inner promptings. However, it takes practice and dedication to understanding yourself and your sensitivities. Allow me to define Intuition at its most basic meaning:

N Is For Notification

You're probably wondering what the heck Notification has to do with anything. Well, it has everything to do with success and getting to the fulfillment of your dreams. Let's start with the basic definition of the word. Notification: to notify; tell; inform; to make known Nothing complicated there, right? I beg to differ with you on that. The act of notifying yourself about something you are doing or intend to do may not be as easy as you think.

G Is For Gratification

[dropcap]F[/dropcap]or the second component of the I.G.N.I.T.E. series, we will discuss gratification and how to finally have it. the problem I see concerning getting to that fantastic place (we'll call it the "G" spot just for fun!) is that most women fail at building up to it by connecting to the emotions that would be present when they reach their goal. In other words, we need to feel, taste, smell, touch, and see all that surrounds success before we actually get there. Too many women get all excited (see I Is For Inspiration) about an idea or dream only to get lost in the shuffle of life and responsibilities, never making it to the "G" Spot.

This is INSPIRATION Day- the first component of I.G.N.I.T.E. week! Call it the beginning of a new life chapter, a fire in its early stages, the birth of anything and everything you desire. We can't do or create anything without it. That, my friends, is why it is first in this series/program. If you were my coaching client, I would first ask you to describe in detail what inspires you, what gets you all goose bumpy and excited to do something new or even a little scary. So, we'll just say you all are my mini-clients...

3 Keys To Balance And Getting Things Done

Being a woman, who is smack in the middle between structured and unstructured, I tend to see both sides of the to schedule or not to schedule debate. And depending on where you fall on this scale of either beautiful chaos or rigid order, you likely are gazing at the proverbial green grass on the other side. The unstructured woman will long for the day when she actually feels caught up and able to find her sofa, dinner table, and bedroom floor. Where the rigid perfectionist dreams of having time to just enjoy her life, to take off and just do something fun. Well, ladies, you can learn from each other. With a few tricks taken from both extremes, you can find balance and get things d

Tall Poppy Syndrome

So the Australian Open tennis tournament is on in Melbourne at the moment, and watching the Australians play and compete got me thinking... We have this thing in Australia called the ‘Tall Poppy Syndrome’. Mind you, I think it’s in other places around the globe, but this is my experience of it here. It’s a rather ugly scenario where Australians like to chop down those around them who are standing taller or achieving more than they are, so that everyone appears to be on the same level, average -not making any one look less!

Do Something More

The other day my friend, D, gave me a really cool stainless steel coffee cup that has a detachable plastic sleeve on it. It also came with a dry erase marker. It appeals to my artistic, whimsical self, as well as my coffee side. On Sunday, I decided I would write something inspirational on the cup and think on it throughout the day. I decided on "Do"

Back To School In My Forties

I always felt like something was missing. Like I hadn’t achieved what I wanted to achieve and even perhaps that time had passed me by. A very good friend of mine convinced me otherwise. I am talking about a University degree. I finished high school, back in 1988, and commenced a Bachelor of Business majoring in Accounting. I spent the next 6 months of my life wondering what I was doing. I only chose Accounting because a friend of mine had, and I didn’t know what else to do. Suffice to say I quit not long after that and headed into the work force, which I totally enjoyed.
