You may have noticed I’ve been quiet lately. If you follow me on social media, you probably saw that I succumbed to a nasty virus.
I’m actually just starting to poke my head out from under this horrid thing, and since it lasted so long it gave me time to think.
I realized how much I dislike getting sick (obviously), but for another reason. I realized that it almost feels like I’ve failed. I’m a health coach, I shouldn’t be getting sick, and if I do, at the very least I should be able to bounce right back. Right?
Obviously, my analytical brain realizes this is nonsense, but my emotional brain eats it up, and sort of nags at me.
I know I’m not the only one that does this. You feel defeated for something that was out of your control in the first place, or don’t try something because of the possible uncontrollable result.
Can you think of one of these scenarios in your life?
Where are you expecting yourself to be perfect?
Then one person commented on my status “Dentists get cavities”
Of course dentists get cavities. They’re not superhuman. Would you stop going to your dentist if they have ever had a cavity?
So from here on out, whenever you expect yourself to be perfect, remember that dentists get cavities, and carie (haha) on with your imperfectly amazing self!
It’s easy to find inspiration when it’s all around you. This is a great tool for your kids as well, and something they naturally gravitate towards. Think of your bedroom walls in middle school 🙂

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!
