balancing change

change happens in all areas of life
when there is a change your focus is zeroed in

zeroed in on what you need it to be
what is the change happening now?

when you are zeroed in
you lose some priorities that you had
you feel out of balance

you don’t spend as much time
being outside

you don’t do what you want for
eating healthy
working your business
being present to those you love
taking care of your family
taking care of yourself

change happens
how aware are you to how each change effects you?

what do you want to do with change?
accept it
know that you will be off balance for a bit
grow with it
be aware

with awareness
you will be able to prioritize differently
and keep what’s most important now

with awareness
you will be able to shift
to what’s most important
and keep balance in your life

balance in life is everchanging with change
balance is being present
balance is being aware
balance is choosing what’s most important to you

balance in life is to be looked at more broadly
not focused on a short time period
balance is part of growth
spiraling upward growth
balance changes with growth

balance is more like a teeter totter of life
you have your ups and downs
and as you go through the ups and downs and changes
you will be in the center between the ups and downs
you will be in the center between the changes and growth

when you are feeling out of balance
become aware of what’s changing
what’s most important to you?
what needs to shift with the change?
what will you shift again when the change is embodied?

what is balance?

when do you feel balanced?

when do you feel out of balance?

balance is something we experience for a moment or two, and life happens, we’re back out of balance.

why do we always try to attain a balance that is unattainable?

i’m not sure. but i know that i do like to feel balance in my life.

with the different moments in my life, with the many different experiences that i live my life needs different things to create a feeling of balance.

keeping balance in my life means that i am prioritizing what’s most important in my life. one of the most important for me is being sure i prioritize myself and take me time for my body, mind and spirit.

what makes you feel balanced?

what’s most important to you?

be selfish

what is it to be selfish? what comes to your mind? what feelings do you have around being selfish?

i challenge you to have positive feelings about being selfish and to become incredibly selfish.

being selfish is prioritizing you, what’s most important to you, and most importantly taking care of you. when you take care of you, you are more available to care and give to others. you are able to be present in the moment.

have you ever done what i have (and still do at times) – run around to get things done for you and others in your family, and when you think you are going to sit down and relax a little you remember a list of household chores you “need” to get done and family “needs” that only you can do?

it leaves me feeling depleted with no energy for myself or for others, i’m not able to give to those most important to me (including myself) what i truly want to give – being fully present.

stop doing all those “need to-dos” and become selfish. add selfishness into your life to become more, and be able to give more.  prioritize yourself for 5 minutes, 10 minutes, an hour, a whole day. prioritizing yourself reinvigorates and rejuvenates you.

you will be able to be fully present for yourself and for the other people most important in your life. and those pesky “need to-dos” get done too and don’t seem so pesky anymore.

what is it that you can do to become selfish? what have you wanted to do and haven’t done lately? take a walk, soak in the tub, read a book, go fishing, play a favorite game, get a massage, go out for coffee, enjoy a favorite hobby, enjoy a favorite sport, take a nap…

what will you do this week to be selfish?

You First

Do you please other first? or yourself first?

Pleasing others before yourself and trying to make others happy is something that many people do. It is most important to do what pleases you and what is in alignment with your values. Doing what’s most important to you gives you energy and enthusiasm to do what you want for others. Doing what’s most important to you is taking care of yourself so that you can take care of the most important people in your life.

Pleasing yourself first is a small difference, but a very significant difference. Giving yourself some pleasure, just starting with 5 minutes a day, gives you a boost of energy and enthusiasm for the other activities you choose for your life. When you put yourself first, the activities you have chosen remain a joy to you, and don’t become a burden and a weight on your shoulders.


Do something for yourself each day. You can begin with taking 5 minutes for something that you enjoy. What do you enjoy? Is it reading, yoga, drawing, dancing, sitting silently with coffee, connecting to the Earth outside, writing, sewing, doing a puzzle, chatting with a friend, finding a new recipe on the internet, or learning to juggle? Choose something you enjoy and do it for 5 minutes today.

to do

I am overwhelming myself with all that I want to do and with all that I think I have to do.

It is time for me to take a moment and prioritize, to refocus.

  • What is most important to me?
  • What can I let go?
  • Will doing this empower me?
  • Will doing this empower others?
  • How will doing this make me feel?
  • What do I truly want?
  • What can I leverage?
  • What can I change?
  • Who do I want to be?
  • What do I want to do?
  • What do I want to experience?

These questions help me to refocus my energy on what is most important to me. There are “busy work” things that I do need to do for living my life, but when I have thought about my priorities and connected to what’s most important to me I shift to doing with a sense of urgency.


I am able to let go the overwhelm and anxiousness I was feeling and allow the desire and positive energy feelings into my doing. I feel happy and grateful for all that I have that creates my to do list.

With this shift I am able to do more, to accomplish more, my energy isn’t wasted on worrying and doubt.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you worrying, feeling anxious or doubt? Are you feeling positive focused energy? Are you happy and grateful?

If you need a shift, ask yourself: What’s most important to me? Am I being empowered? What can I play with and change? What do I want to experience?

Live Your Truth!

What do you want?

I ask myself, “What do I truly want?” and “What is most important to me?”


I have been distracted from being and doing what I truly and what is most important to me. I have been distracted by big things and little things.

I’ve known what  I want, but I haven’t taken action. I haven’t been trusting to the knowing of what I want.

I do not have to be scared. I do not have to please others and fit into their image of me.

I have to be who I want to be! Abundant and free! Living in truth and creating the life that I want to live!

Are you doing what you truly want? Are you doing what is most important to you?

Be who you want to be! Do what you want to do!

Live Your Truth!

let go control

I choose to live in present moment awareness and do what is most important. When I choose to live in present moment awareness and do what is most important it creates a serene day with a sense of urgency which is calm and collected, a focused way of living and experiencing the day.

When I am trying to control and do do do, that creates overwhelm.

I can’t control anything but my feelings and choices. I can be aware of what I am choosing and choose to feel positive.


Letting go control and doing my best, allowing the moment and trusting God, the Universe, is how I want to live. There is so much that I want to do and want to prioritize. I need to be aware that I am not super mom or super woman and I can’t do it all and have it all right now. (still, I really really want it – but I know that the growth and journey to achieving all that I want is so much more!)

So I choose to be and do what is most important in the now moment and living in present moment awareness. I choose to do my best at what is most important at the time. I choose to trust the Universe is creating all that I want.

I can let go and be patient. I can live in faith and trust.

I enjoy the journey in the preset moment.

What control can you let go? What is most important to you in your present moment awareness?

What’s Most Important to You?

What is most important to you?

Family, being outside, enjoying your hobby, health, exercise and nutrition, wealth, abundance, freedom, giving, making a difference?

Why is what you chose most important to you? What do you want to feel having and/or enjoying what is most important to you?

Are you experiencing what is most important to you?



I have been asking myself these questions as I feel change coming towards me in my life. I don’t know what or how the change is going to be, how big a change it will be, but I feel it. There are things that I am unsatisfied with, and for me to continue living my truth, I need to be sure that I am doing what is most important to me.

We are growing and changing all the time, every day, every moment. Are you allowing the flow of growth and change, or are you fighting and blocking it? I ask myself this, when I ask myself, “Am I doing what’s most important to me?”

I’m doing a lot of what’s important to me, I am enjoying many pieces of my life, but there is more for me to enjoy. There is more that I want to do, more that I want to be, and more that I want to experience so that I am doing what is most important to me now.

And so I ask myself, “What can I do to enjoy what is most important to me?” And, “Who can I be so that I am doing what is most important to me?”

“We are always becoming, we are always creating. Today I am more than I was yesterday, tomorrow I am more than I am today.”

What can you do to enjoy what is most important to you?

Who can you be to do what is most important to you?

Balance Priorities

What is balance?

Do you feel balanced in your life? If you do, that may be good. If you don’t, that is good.

Balance is doing what is most important to you in the NOW moment, and knowing what you also want to do for the other areas of your life.

dsc03821A negative balance is when you feel negative emotions because of the decisions that you have made.

A positive balance is when you feel positive because you are doing what is most important to you.

Feeling off-balance is an indicator that you have wants. Wants are good. I believe that we are never actually balanced, there is a balance of activities so that we are not neglecting any one part of our lives, but that is it.

Being off-balance is feeling the difference between where you are and where you want to go. It is growth. It is expansion.

“Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.” ~Maxwell Maltz

Being aware of that difference is good, and you will feel more in balance when you are aware of the differences of who you want to be, what you want to do, and what you want to experience and take action to become, to do, to experience what you want.

Where are you feeling off-balance? What can you do for that area that is important to you NOW? What growth/expansion do you want in your life to be who you want to be, do what you want to do and experience what you want to experience?

Live Your Truth!

Where are you?

Where are you? Do you know where you are in your life right now?

Are you where you want to be? Are you doing what you want to do?


To get to where you want to be you need to know where it is that you are starting from. Do you know where you are?

Knowing your values and your priorities gets you to where you want to go.

Your values are your foundation and guidance system. When you know what your values are and what they mean to you, you make choices that are in alignment with who you are and that guide you to where you want to be.

Your priorities help you to know what to focus on, what to give your energy to. When you know your priorities you guide your day and take action to grow and become who you want to be and do what you want to do.

Stephen Covey says “(Values) are the source of our passions in life, and they help us determine where we focus our energies.”

Your values are a belief that is meaningful to you.

  • What makes you happy?
  • What gets you excited?
  • What activities do you enjoy doing?

Do you know what your values are? Define your values, know where you are, and then make choices to go where you want to go – being who you want to be, doing what you want to do and experiencing what you want to experience!
