Things to remember
Having a regular practice that honors you will keep you calm, and will help keep your family at ease.
I will post my practice 7 Keys to Unlocking an Amazing Day and Life, but you can also access the link to the playlist here
When things are revving up, take a moment to check in with you, and do what it takes to calm yourself – deep breaths, meditation
Talk about how you’re feeling with your kids. This will let them know why you may be on edge for something situational, and it’s a great example of how to communicate your feelings.
This will take great practice since your natural instinct is to address the behavior at hand, so create a cue for yourself to remind you to self-reflect.
We’ve broken down gratitude and time for you. What does it mean when you put it all together? What is imperfectly amazing? It’s letting go of the things that burden you and hold you down, and allow yourself to soar into the life you design – even when the real world gets in the way!
Sometimes life takes over, and you find yourself on auto-pilot. You’re not really enjoying anything, you’re just trying to manage the busy. When you find yourself in that situation, take a step back and remember the formula: gratitude + time for you = imperfectly amazing
In this video, I discuss my recent example of using gratitude to save the day, and why it’s such an important practice that can powerfully change your mindset, and bring joy to your life.
Like draws like – When you focus your attention on the things you don’t like, you draw more of it. When you shift your energy to what is good, even when the sky is falling all around you, you will bring more of the good.
Practice makes perfect – The more you do this, the more instinctual it becomes, which means you draw more and more of the good stuff.
Don’t beat yourself up – When you catch yourself having a Debbie Downer moment. Don’t berate yourself, just change the thoughts. Tell yourself, that’s how the old me would think about this situation, but the new me is grateful for …
Grow huge gratitude muscles – At the beginning of your day, or at the end, or both, take a few minutes to find 1 – 3 things to be grateful for. Find things that apply to your recent day, so that you are constantly practicing how to find the diamond in the rough rather than choosing the same things repeatedly (like your kids or wine), because energy won’t fall for that.
It may seem like having joy, passion, and fulfillment in your life just happens. If you love it, you just make it happen, right? But, just like your relationships, it takes thought, strategy, and commitment. Yet it’s just as important and rewarding!

Part 1 of Creating Your Love Strategy
Find it! – it sounds obvious, but expectations can sabotage the process. There are different ways to open up your subconscious to learn your blocks – movement, journaling, meditation.
Part 2 of Creating Your Love Strategy
Make a plan – break down big goals into smaller chunks
Schedule it! – unless you create time in your life to work on it, it won’t magically happen
It’s your turn to share!
Have you found the things that light your up?
If so, where are you in making it happen?
Having strategy and accountability can be the difference between thinking about doing things and actually doing them. If you are ready to claim the imperfectly amazing life you deserve then reach out to set up a plan, and if I can help you
