It’s Back To School Time – Find Your Balance

Back to school time can be hectic!

It already feels like there’s so much to do just with our daily life tasks.

Now we have the hustle and bustle of getting the kids off to school, maintaining the house, staying on schedule, getting to work on time, and the list can go on. It’s understandable why one would feel the stress piling up.

What we want to be on the look out for is associated overwhelm and anxiety.  This is important because it’s generally the time we start to see excessive amounts of clutter and other manifestations.

I understand that work-life balance is a challenge and how easy it is for things to snowball out of control.  That’s why it’s so important that we prepare now.

I’m presenting a tel-class to help you re-focus, prioritize your important tasks, and clear out those cob-webs. It’s the perfect time to brush up on your skills and perhaps learn a few things or two.

Won’t you join me?

Fall is here!  Now is the perfect time to get your tasks completed and yourself organized.

If you can identify with that, then you want to be on this call!

I am going to share with you my fall checklist, how I go about breaking down my tasks, and a few surprises that you just may be shocked to learn about!

I know fall clean-ups can be a dirty task, but I promise to keep it clean…well, somewhat…  🙂

A shirt here, a sock there, papers, papers, everywhere…

If you are experiencing clutter, I am sure you can relate to what I refer to as the scattered item syndrome. It’s where you participate in a wild goose chase looking for your things.

Clutter has the capacity to make us a little goosey. (exhibiting nervous behavior when we cannot locate our stuff)  It can be unnerving to say the least when you are on a constant hunt trying to find your stuff.

I propose that it is time to end this goosey  cycle and crush the clutter once and for all!  That’s why I am offering a workshop dedicated to helping you do just that.

I offer events like these sporadically and they are jammed packed with value for little cost in comparison.  They sell out quickly so if you want in, I am giving you plenty of notice.  To hold your spot, a deposit of $100.00 is required in order to be fair to everyone.

Below are the details:

Dwelling In Possibilities In NYC

Dwelling In Possibilities In NYC

Part of dreaming big is allowing yourself to dwell in all the possibilities that life has to offer.

Within the dwelling of possibilities you become a seeker of opportunity.

You begin to see things different – with fresh eyes and a keen sense of what can be.

It can be an exhilarating time with so much hope for the future.

Does it take courage?  Of course it does.  Does having support help?  I believe it does.

I could not have recovered from many things in my life and gained the clarity I needed without  life coaching.  It helped me tremendously by opening up a whole new world for me.

Life coaching gave me the tools to believe in myself.  When I think back and look at the things I have accomplished by believing in myself I am amazed, and so grateful for the support through life coaching.  I sincerely believe that it enabled me to do the things I once only dreamed of.

I have recently published a new e-Book – Life Coaching; a guide to hiring a professional coach.   If you are considering making some changes in your life and thinking about working with a coach, you may find it helpful.

I am also in the process of another project that I am so excited about and am anticipating the release by early Fall 2016.  However, as all the dwellers of possibilities know – you must begin to breathe your dreams into life.  That’s what the below picture is about – just me, dreaming big!

Please Don’t Wait…Until Your Life Depends Upon It

I believe people really want to improve the quality of their life and eliminate the chaos and clutter. Unfortunately, for most, it takes some sort of crisis to get things moving along.
I hear all types of reasons why people put off getting organized – until critical conditions force them to take action as if their life depends upon it. 
So ask yourself, ‘Is that what you really want?’ To wait for a crisis to occur before you begin to live the life you really deserve? Is it really?
I’m going to be brutally honest here. It’s hard enough to clear out your things and get your life back on track when everything is out of sorts.  I understand this. But compound that under panic conditions and well, that’s a whole different story.
So if in your quiet moments you hear your inner voice saying:
  • I need to change my life
  • I can’t take this anymore
  • I want to be free of this stuff


Please Listen To Yourself – Pay Attention To Your Voice.



If you are ready to create change in your life, then you MUST register for this special opportunity to participate in a Virtual Assessment and Consultation with me. This is where I will take an inside look at your environment and consult with you – it’s just as if I was there in person.  Your session will last 1.5 hours with me.

In your personal Virtual Assessment and Consultation you will learn:

  • How to uncover hidden challenges that may be sabotaging your organizing efforts and keep you cluttered.
  • How to gain perspective by sharing your struggles without worry, shame or guilt.
  • How to create a crystal clear vision for the ideal life you deserve to have.
  • How to develop an inspired action plan and immediately put it into working order.
  • How to transform your thoughts of “I can’t’ to “I CAN and I WILL BE ORGANIZED.”
  • How to set up a maintenance program for optimum success.

If you no longer want to operate from a place of fear, and you do not want to wait until a crisis occurs before you make a choice to  get organized, then please take advantage of this special opportunity I am offering you.

I know the pain clutter brings – I understand how it creeps up and robs you like a thief in the night.  You can do something about this – please don’t wait until your life depends upon it.  Act Now!



 P.S. – Once you register, you will receive your Welcome Package and detailed information to schedule your session.

Time Heals All Wounds

I am sure many of us (myself included) have passed on this advice to someone who was hurting – “Time heals all wounds.”

However, I have recently been rethinking this.  Do we really need time to heal us or is there something we can be doing in the meantime?  I’m not suggesting that we deny our reality of what may have caused the emotional pain. What I am saying is that perhaps there is something else we can be doing while waiting on time.You see, it’s not necessarily that time heals all woundsit’s what we do with the time that heals.  I believe that action is the best course we can take for ourselves during the healing process.

If you think about every other aspect of our lives, we have to take the initiative to do something to cause something to happen.  Therefore, why should a hurtful situation be any different?  Why should we wait for time to pass for our feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, anguish, and yearning to decrease. Remember, we do not have a clue how much time we are talking about – six months, one year, two years…or more.

Let me give you some examples of why I believe taking action can help the recovery process.

Example One
It was about three and a half years since I last heard from Sally.  Before that, she would periodically update me on the status of her cluttered home, the children, and her pending divorce.  During this time, I would encourage her to participate in a workshop or an online course that I thought would be helpful for her. She would always decline.  When I stopped hearing from Sally, I would email and telephone her, but she would never return my messages.

During the time we didn’t talk, Sally became more and more depressed.  Her house became cluttered to the degree that all surfaces and furniture were piled high with everything and anything you could imagine.  There was not a sacred place for her to rest and relax.  Sally literally had to carve out an area to lay her head down in order to sleep at night.  She no longer could cook or bathe in her home.  She could not receive guests at her house and her children refused to come see her unless she got help.  All social life for her shut down.  In a sense, Sally became homeless in her own home.

Then Sally reached out for help.  I knew immediately the best thing was to take swift action! She needed relief not only from her environment, but also from her feelings of shame and guilt.  Time clearly was no longer an option.  We rapidly (within 24 hours) put a plan into place that included decluttering her home, getting Sally the medical support she needed, and enrolling her into a Life Recovery Coaching program.  I am happy to report that Sally is doing very well at this time and is now in touch with her children.

Example Two: 
My first impression of Basel was that he was a very proud man. I remember the stories he would tell of being a young boy and the adventures he would go on with his father.  Not far from their home on the outskirts of their farm, they would venture deep into the forest for days.  It is here that Basel’s father taught him how to climb mountains. I recall with every tale he related that he catapulted me back into time.  He had a knack for making you feel as if you were experiencing it with him. I found him to be deliriously intoxicating.

With each feverish story, I noticed that Basel’s voice would change. His tone and pitch would intensify and you could hear the ascent of the mountain in his words.  As he would get near the story’s final descent, a gentleness and tenderness would seep into his voice.  His words became soothing, like a lullaby, innocently rocking you to a safe landing.  Yet, there was a sadness that he could not disguise with his words. Deep down, I could feel the sorrow radiating.

At the age of 45, Basel could no longer bear the weight of carrying around his pain from the loss of his beloved father.  Never having the opportunity to grieve as a young boy, Basel shouldered the brunt of his pain by making a career out of climbing the world.  In every foreign country where he climbed, he would build a new romantic relationship.  Since he knew there was always a future destination in sight, it was the perfect alibi for not having to commit to one person for too long.  It was the ideal set-up.  At least until he fell in love.

According to Basel, although he was accustomed to his lifestyle on the run, the idea of leaving it for the woman he loved made him feel  an array of emotions ranging from guilt, shame, anger, frustration … and he didn’t know why.  He was accustomed to living his life alone and figuring things out by himself.  Although he told himself he was okay with it, he suspected that was not the truth.

No amount of time or distant mountain could heal Basel’s pain.  Like any young boy who lost their father, Basel began to grieve.  The outpouring of emotion startled him and he longed to be with the woman he turned away from.  He vowed from that day forward to begin the process of change – beginning with not running from his feelings any longer.

In these examples, you can clearly see that there is a difference between taking appropriate action to begin the healing process versus the act of running to hide from the emotional pain.

If you are going through a difficult time, please know that there are alternative ways for healing to begin. We do not necessarily have to wait for time to heal all wounds.

Loving What Is

Loving What Is

Below is an excerpt from Byron Katie’s Book –Loving What Is
“I am a lover of what is, not because I’m a spiritual person, but because it hurts me when I argue with reality.  We can know that reality is good just as it is, because when we argue with it, we experience tension and frustration.  We don’t feel natural or balanced.  When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
My Dear Friends…
Doesn’t this free you up? Doesn’t it give you permission to say, ‘Ah, yes, it is all OK – I am not going to argue with what is, I can accept it and then take the steps that are necessary with ease?
Living an untruth is always stressful. So many times haven’t we denied or tried to control our reality instead of just accepting it.  And how has that worked out?  Usually it becomes at some point very painful.   
The process of  Life Recovery is just like that…loving it all…loving every broken piece of it and then some.
Maybe it’s your career, relationship, environment, finances or health that’s causing you to feel anxiety, frustration and confusion.  But if, just if, we take this approach of Loving What Is, doesn’t it feel gentler and more peaceful? Doesn’t clarity begin to focus in? Then inspiration … possibly?
If you are struggling and would like to learn how to overcome your challenges and  recover, I would love to share with you all the valuable tools that have helped me.
In Healing,

Motives Do Matter

Motives Do Matter

Emotions are a habit – You get what you tolerate.

Tony Robbins said this and he was right.  The key to unlocking your negative emotions is to realize that they have become just that – a habit.  It is a learned behavior.  What we need to do now is retrain ourselves to feel differently so we can begin to focus on the positive aspects of life – and begin to feel the passion again.  This is possible as our brain is like a muscle – it gets stronger with practice.

So how do we do this?

According to Tony, and most professional growth leaders, you begin by finding something greater than yourself to serve.  Live for your family, community, humanity.  Choose something that you  can aspire to and truly feel good about.  Remember you can’t fake this, so no BS here.  As they say, “Motives Do Matter.”

Life is too short to stay in this cycle.  This is not to say that you won’t ever  feel sad, mad, stressed out, etc., –  of course you will.  The difference is that you will not live there for very long.  You can change it.
