I’ve been having this strange feeling like I’m caught up. Like I don’t have too many pressing things to do. That I am on track and doing what I am supposed to do, and that life does not have to be so hard.
When I was growing up, everything was always more work. There was always more work to do. You couldn’t be sitting around and doing nothing, you were either doing chores,
Have you ever wondered how you can possibly maintain a spiritual practice, while you are constantly juggling so many things that you ‘need to do' and 'have to take care of'?
Now that summer is here, many of us are having a little more time to slow down, take off from the regular routine, and give ourselves the gift of enjoying the outdoors and a bit of sunshine. The world of deadlines and demands becomes a little more forgiving, as work and school schedules lighten up a bit and many of our colleagues are off on vacation. We're finding the time to hang out more with friends and family, go to the shore or camping, or just stay home and experiment with new recipes on the grill.
Throughout the winter season, the Earth turns away from the sun, reducing our access to its strong warming light, dropping temperatures, and beckoning us to retreat within where it is quiet and dry. We set up the hearth fires and bundle up in sweaters and socks. Nature, herself, pulls back her energy: animals slow down and enter hibernation, rivers and lakes freeze over, and plants and trees draw back their saps from the fallen leaves and branches, returning it back to their roots where they can grow and forge a stronger foundation for the coming year.
And what a summer we've been having... Are you enjoying yours?
Here in Tennessee where I live now, we've been enjoying both hot sunny days and also the tempestuous storms with thunder and lightening that sprinkle our weeks with the winds of change.

Last week in my post, "Coaching Men, Coaching Women," I discussed how I use the latest studies in brain chemistry and hormones that show how differently men and women are 'wired' to support my clients in my coaching practice. Our chemistry and physiology not only can have an impact on how we think and perceive, but also what makes us feel good about ourselves and motivates us in our lives.
“What is Life Coaching, and How Does It Work?”
Is there something you’ve wanted to be, do or have – something you’ve wanted for quite some time? Does it seem as though your goal is always just beyond your reach?
Do you want to make a change in your life, but feel uncertain about how to create such a change?
Enter, Life Coach.
