yesterday I got this, spontaneous little love dart from a client and it brought me great joy and inspired this letter

add the birthday and i found myself requesting on fb that everyone share / post the first word that came to mind when they thought of me

(something about a birthday ignites the annual reality check)

the intention is that I get to see how I showed up this year, in the world, in my life, for myself, for others because I am up to BIG THINGS in life

some of the responses I got were:

positive, upbeat, joyful, inspiring, peppy, effervescent, happy, loving, brave, fearless – wow!!! right?

but let’s be honest: it was scary to put myself out there in that way – to literally open myself up to what people think of me

(being someone who seeks to make a difference in the world isn’t for sissies)

for me it’s about taking the coaching and the feedback, being better – a better friend, a better daughter, a better sister, a better mom, a better coach, a better leader, a better human

I believe we’re here to live life in the most deeply satisfying, juicy joyful way possible

and what I love most is empowering others to create their lives, to set big goals, take big risks, to move beyond their comfort zones for their own big rewards be they:

moving away or toward something
saving or leaving their marriage
buying their first home
changing their career
loving themselves
increasing their confidence
creating community

so, how are YOU showing up?

are you a hell yes, I’m in it to win it?
or meh, maybe tomorrow?

whatever your answer, you’ve got this and I believe in you!

and if you feel inspired, please share the words you would want people to use for YOU
