Community Connections


Summer is already here.  I hope you are looking forward to spending quality  time with your children, family and friends.  Whatever your plans are for the summer, be sure to include lots of fun, play, relaxation and rejuvenation.  Now is the time to make memories with those that you love.  Before you know it, they are either grown or gone.  Make this summer one to cherish!

Now is also a great time to heighten your attention to safety on the highways and waterways since more children, teenagers and adults will be out and about riding bikes, golf carts, motorcycles, skateboards, roller blades, swimming, boating, etc. 

Also plan for protection from the elements.  Don't forget the sunscreen, hats, adequate footwear, life jackets, outer wear, gear, first-aid kits and lots of water to stay hydrated. 

So while you probably won't see me on a skateboard or a motorcycle this summer, you will see me expanding my connections with my family, friends and community.  That is what I cherish and look forward to. 

Keeping in alignment with that and what is important to me, I have lots of new opportunities in store for the summer and fall that are sure to enhance your life experiences and the quality of your relationships.  Be sure to read the rest of this newsletter for details and check the website often for updates.
I hope you will join me on this journey.  Let's co-create the future!!!  I want to be your partner in possibilities in Your Next Step!

Love & hugs,

Ready, Set, ?
by Denise Palmisano

What do you think is going through her mind right now as she prepares to jump?  Do you think she will jump?  Do you think she will change her mind  and not jump?  What do you think her experience will be if she jumps?  What do you think her experience will be if she backs off of the diving board and doesn't jump?

Imagine that's you on the end of that diving board.  Think of a situation in your life as though you are on the edge of that diving board with a choice to either jump or turn around and back away from your original plan or commitment.  What do you think you will experience in that situation if you moved forward?  What do you think you will experience if you back away and don't move forward?

What are your thoughts telling you to do or not do?  What are the beliefs that are controlling those thoughts?  When or where did you take on those beliefs?  Whose beliefs are they?  Are those beliefs enhancing your possibilities or limiting them?  What would be available if you were to challenge those beliefs and trust yourself to choose your own beliefs about this situation?

Are you going to take a leap of faith and trust yourself to handle whatever comes up whether you jump or not in the situation
being shown to you?

Are you making up a story that not jumping means that you have backed away from what is important to you or that you are a failure?

Regardless of what you do, you will have an experience and a story about your choice and about yourself that will either enhance or limit your future possibilities in future situations.  There is no right or wrong answer here. 

To be able to surrender the fear of not being able to handle the outcome regardless of the choice is the work at hand. 

You see, I don't think we are afraid to jump.  I think we are afraid of our reaction or response to  what happens after we jump.  The invitation is to choose to stop making every situation a problem and choose without fear or regret. 

I suggest that getting clear on what is important to you will have your choices be experienced with more peace and acceptance.  Remember to take this one step at at time, moment by moment.  Staying on the fence and not choosing is a recipe for suffering.  I remember a quote,  "Nothing happens until something moves".  Either way, get off the fence, then you will know what step is next.

What would you need to know, learn, request or experience for you to be at peace and in acceptance of your choice to jump or not jump in this situation?

What will you choose in this situation?  Ready, set, ?

Security is mostly a superstition.  It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

I am starting a new group session that will meet twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.  A 3 month commitment will be required to maintain the energy, integrity and learning of the group dynamics.

This meeting is open to people that;
  • have a desire and commitment to enhance a particular area of life
  • are interested in being in conversation about transition or change
  • are currently experiencing challenge, setbacks or difficulty moving through limitations and blocks of energy, focus or discipline
  • want to create a network of support and accountability.
Some common areas of concern are health and well-being, relationship with self, relationship with others, money, intimacy, spiritual awareness, moods and emotional well-being, dignity, self-trust, wholeness and career.

What might be possible in your own life if you truly believed that you had the power and potential to create a life you love and an abundance of possibilities through the transition, change and challenges in your life?
