…The thought occurred to me. I am hosting a webinar (Thursday night 8:00pm)t about how to deal with days just like this. Days that are hard and everything seems harder and you are gritting your teeth just to get through it.
And here I am having one of those days.
Who am I to try to help people who are having those days when I have those days?…
Green Hope Coaching with Kathy Burrus turns 8 years old today. Thank you for joining me in this journey!
Do you know that feeling of being surrounded by people who are amazing and feeling like just being in their presence makes you a better person?
I have chosen to connect myself with some amazing, super people, whether it is my network of professional women I belong to - or my church or small group. I am a better person just because these people are in my life.
One of those highlights in my life is to connect with a group of creative, soul-searching writers and artists who gather at the…
…there are times we create this VISION for what we want for our family, or our career or our LIFE!
We perhaps set goals, we make plans, we study those plans and add dates to our calendar. Then we get to work doing all of those things. Sometimes it works. Many times it works for a little while (think New Year's Resolutions).
Then the urgent things of life step in and demand attention, and our STUCK places insist on becoming more bothersome with each forward step we try to take. Our VISION soon becomes nothing more than fine words on a pretty page, or dates on a calendar.
Ho-hum! Not again!
Then… Ta Da!
In soars our super-hero EN to the rescue!
-- how the 30 day challenge challenged me.
The past 30 plus days have been an interesting experiment for me to SHOW UP each day to my GHC community.
To remind you, it was while attending the Social Media Week Lima 2018 conference in June, that coach and speaker Tiffany Lanier (#LivewithTiffany), challenged me to SHOW UP!
"I don't know how it will change you - or your community- but I know it will. Just SHOW UP!"
Her words struck to the core of me. Last fallm at the 2017 TRIBEWRITER conference I attend each year, the message I came home with from Jeff Goins and friends was "Don't quit. SHOW UP. Don't starve."
I was starving. Oh not literally, obviously, since I'm in a battle to lose weight right now. But I was starving in the sense that I was struggling to connect with my clients and therefore generate enough income to not just pay some bills, but provide for other things as well.
As Tiffany shared her wisdom with me I realized I wasn't SHOWING UP. In fact the only thing I had done was NOT QUIT. Though I thought about it several times. Ren had to talk me down more than once when I suggested that perhaps I should just go get a J.O.B and let someone else tell me what to do. And pay me regularly. Ren keeps reminding me that this is what I am supposed to be doing.
But I was 'starving' because I was not SHOWING UP! I knew it as soon as Tiffany spoke those words.
Just SHOW UP!
So I have! For 30 days now I have been SHOWING UP on my Facebook Live personal page. And so have you!
You are a huge part of the gift …
Recently I was asked, WHAT DO YOU WANT?
I want a lot of things,
My shower to be fixed in the master bedroom
The windshield in my car to be repaired
Debt to be paid off
Family to be together
But I realized all of those things were related to current or past issues that need to be 'dealt' with.
So what do I want for my future?
I've hesitated to answer that question.
There were times in my past that I was pretty clear what I wanted. I knew what my design was and I believed with all my heart that I was in the right place and the right time doing the right stuff.
Then I wasn't!
Or I couldn't.
So I quit.
I quit doing. I started being.
I quit dreaming and just took time to breathe, and live and love.
I was just starting to dream again when
