Do you ever feel like you could use the easy button in life? Yes!! YES! So do I. Alas, it has not fallen out of the sky to land anywhere near me as of yet. I feel like I have always done things the hard way…or at least I used to. The crazy thing is that it took me so many years to realize I just had to tweak a few things in my life to refocus my thoughts and actually get through the bad times.
I will never forget feeling like I was at the end of my rope, and the knot was slipping. It’s a terrible place to be.
Have you ever noticed the harder you try to stop thinking about something, the more it comes up in your life? I have. Trying to control the thoughts then makes way for anxiety and feelings of helplessness. Sometimes, it just takes talking to a friend or someone on the outside of the entire situation to make things feel better. We push down our own intuition and just keep obsessing.
I realized I had to get my head under control first in order to move forward in life. I had to be the one to take back control of my thoughts…and not let them run from I am okay, to the end of the world is coming.
I started a small group after I saw massive results with my own style of coaching. I started helping people in my home town, and started journaling to help others in my circle get clarity on what was actually causing them to be stuck in their thoughts.
Later on, as my work continued with clients trying to lose weight, I realized they were not addressing their own inner worth. I felt like they were so focused on losing weight, or trying to overcome this obstacle, that they forgot who they were. They had been mom, or caregiver, friend, or family member, but had turned off their own heart centered thoughts. I started giving “worthiness” pep talks to some of my clients…addressing the physical or mental pain associated with these feelings. I realized that people suffering from fibromyalgia actually had forgotten what it feels like to live. I started thinking about how it feels to actually get up and get dressed for the day and how little things can turn your whole world around.
What if we left love notes to ourselves to make us feel better? Would it work? Yes, yes it would. I was living proof that positive affirmations were helping me get through my days again and get back to me. REAL me. Not sick me. Not flare-up me. Not the me who I didn’t recognize anymore in the mirror. From the plan I formed to heal myself, came my heart aspect to my coaching. Because I was in dire need of learning to love me again. All of me.
Lastly, one of the most difficult transformations to get through was my health transformation. This was the Mac Daddy of the whole thing. In order to complete my physical, mental and spiritual transformation, I had to change the way I ate, the way I lived, the excuses I made, and the way I did ermmmmmm NOT like to think of exercise. At the time, moving hurt. So honestly, if my very skin hurt, my bones ached deep down to the core, and the thought of actually leaving the house to go somewhere where normal people were exercising like they actually liked it, well let’s just say it was too much for me. I wished I had a coach years before this…years. I could have improved so much earlier, but there was nothing like it for me out there. Nothing but pain, misery and more negativity. I had to be the change I wanted to see in my health care and damn if I was going to keep doing the same thing and producing the same results…because that’s what my doctors were doing…and Einstein had a saying for them: “Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
