Remember Life’s Best Moments to Help You Transition Through Change

Remember Life’s Best Moments to Help You Transition Through Change

Why Remember? It brings forward wisdom, thoughts, feelings, and details which will reliably guide you in your current life changes and choices.           Can you remember? Sure you can. Think of a time when you felt happy, competent, healthy, powerful, successful, capable, vibrant, energetic, strong, confident, or serene. If none of these adjectives describe you, come up with ones that do! Now, step back into your memory, and remember what it felt like when you inwardly felt that way and outwardly put it into action. Breathe in the memory of that time in your life, feel it, and recreate it. What you once felt can come forward and be felt again. If you are ever in a place where change has disrupted your flow or shifted your once solid foundation, you can use your memories to re-ground you. As if brick-by-brick, bring these positive emotions and previous actions forward.... read more
Renovate & Restore to Bring You Back to Your Original Best

Renovate & Restore to Bring You Back to Your Original Best

Why Renovate to Restore?  Bringing something back to life can increase its value, enrich your enjoyment, and improve its usefulness. Having a deep passion for interior design and creating beauty, I’ve had the awesome opportunity to renovate and decorate twelve homes, all of which I’ve lived in. As a renovation junkie, I find great happiness in taking an ugly duckling and making it pretty. I love using my creative energy to redo and renew my space to create more value. While residential homes may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of renovation, it applies to so many more areas which transcend real estate. When you renovate and restore, you take what you already have and make it better. As a broke college student, I barely had two nickels to rub together. I scraped by, living paycheck to paycheck. With little money to put a... read more
Enjoy Rebirth for Your Own Personal Rensaissance

Enjoy Rebirth for Your Own Personal Rensaissance

Why Rebirth? Literature, philosophy, psychology, and spiritual traditions are replete with examples of the power of being born again to a new way of being to transform and enhance our experience of life. Rebirth can be one of your most significant moments of transformation. While it is a mystical experience in spirituality and religion, the concept of rebirth represents the metamorphosis which is possible in everyone’s lives. For many it is the ultimate renewal. It is transformative, and is for some, miraculous. Butterflies are the symbol of rebirth, hope, new beginnings, and transformation. When a caterpillar goes into its chrysalis and re-emerges as a butterfly, it experiences a complete process of rebirth. It demonstrates how a living breathing organism is transformed into a completely new creation, yet has the same DNA. Every stage of development is necessary to bring a butterfly to its predetermined, glorious manifestation. Gaining Strength from the... read more
Reconsider the Possibilities While Adapting to Change

Reconsider the Possibilities While Adapting to Change

Why Reconsider? By keeping your mind open, you may discover a sense of flexibility and confidence, adventure and awe that takes you to places you may never have imagined. Reconsideration creates a great opportunity for you to contemplate a previous decision, opinion, action, behavior, or position. “Second-guessing” can at times be very helpful. Have you ever felt strongly about something, but when you considered new information which came to light, you changed your position? Of course you have. We all have. In the crafts of sewing and construction, the expression “measure twice, cut once” is a wise axiom to ensure a greater chance of success. Taking a measurement more than once usually results in greater accuracy and correct action. This is especially critical if the outcome is irreversible. Look before you leap and you will have fewer regrets. Maintaining an open mind, as you reconsider with an open heart,... read more
Readdress Issues for Clarity, Peace, and Resolution

Readdress Issues for Clarity, Peace, and Resolution

Why Readdress? It opens the door for healthy communication; to help, heal, clarify, and gain understanding. Do you sometimes feel ike your lines get crossed and misunderstanding ensues? My book Release the Power of Re3 (www.ReleasethePowerofRe3.com) was born out of a conversation my adult children wanted to have with me regarding the events of their father’s tragic and untimely death several years before. Not only did they want a better understanding, but they also needed to express how my communication skills, or lack thereof, had impacted them. Since each of us processes life events differently, my viewpoint did not align with my children’s perspectives of the life events and circumstances that we’d gone through together. At the time, for me as a mom, I wanted nothing more than to do whatever was necessary to ensure my children had as normal a life as possible. I have since learned that... read more
