We call ourselves adults, as though we are someone different than we once were.
The truth is that we are just older children. An aged version of the person we were when we were younger. Our body, mind, environment, responsibilities and circumstances may have changed but we are still the "us" we were when we were 11..7...5...2 years old.
Why am I sharing this?
1) The next time you feel an intense emotion from either side of the emotional spectrum, whether sadness or joy, ask yourself how old you feel? Are you feeling silly and 6 years old? Scared and 3?
Realizing that your younger self is still you, makes tapping into who you are and what you need today so much easier because you don't see yourself as two separate people (as we often do by thinking of ourselves as once being a child and now being an adult).
This is valuable because you now know that you can learn to heal, evolve and grow from a challenging spot OR regain comfort, confidence and a continuation from a...
For all purposes “THE END” will refer to death. Your funeral. Your last moment here, as you are.
I haven’t done this yet, because logistically I’m not sure what it will look like, but I’d like to give free coaching sessions (relating to this post) to all members of my silly, super supportive, growth community (details at the bottom if you haven’t heard of it because I’m terrible at talking about it ;)).

Here we all are. Walking about, using our wondrous bodies, exploring this remarkable world, using this technology that I personally don’t have a clue how to explain….there’s a lot of “WOW” going on.It is all...
Aim: To cause a moment of reflection on how you can best prepare for the winters of your life, seasonly or internally.
There are two kinds of winters that enter our lives. The winters that change the way things are on the outside of ourselves and the winters that change what’s going on on the inside.
One of the primary differences in the two is that the winters on the outside of us are shared by those around us, we are going through it together and we are understood in the challenges we may experience.
“It’s cold.” says one Canadian to the next. No argument there.
Through quick dashes from our house to our car, frozen eyelashes and countdowns to spring, we all agree....winter can be tough.
The other kind of winter is a state of being. It unfolds the same. The days get darker and we spend more time inside wishing for warmer and brighter days. The difference is that our experience is our own.
