Community Connections

Fall is in the air with football, school, cooler temps, year end goals and plans for the holidays.

Even though it might be getting a little busy, let's not forget to be in the moment regardless of where each moment leads us.

Things to do, places to go and people to see.  This is going to be a very full, and extremely exciting fall and winter for me and my schedule also.  Lots of great things happening in lots of new areas. I am leaning towards a twice a month or monthly newsletter to be able to keep all the promises I have made personally and professionally. 

Don't worry, I am only an email or phone call away. You can also click here to be directed to the main page of my website and scroll down to complete a contact form if you need additional information in the meantime. The contact forms go directly to my email.

Love & hugs,

Letting Go

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
~ Carl Rogers

I am humbled by the perfection of nature's way of taking care of itself. It is a natural and majestic process to witness.  I have been fortunate to have lived in Tennessee and Iowa, both of which actually have 4 seasons. The fall colors are captivating. It is a perfect reflection of the natural and ongoing process of change and transition. I compare it to the process of letting go to be fully available for what's next.

The trees don't ask, Should I keep my leaves?  What color should I change my leaves? Is this color in this year? Do you think I'll still look good when my limbs are bare?  Is it too early to let go of the weight of these leaves? Do you promise I will have more leaves in the future?

They don't resist.
They do what they do because that is the only way they can survive and live. They surrender to their  natural cycles and know they can't survive the winter without letting go of their leaves.

Too bad we as humans can't always accept the natural changes and transitions in our lives.  Most of us try to hold onto people, places, situations and events way too long and at all costs. What has holding on too long cost you in time, energy, happiness, peace and opportunities? What are you resisting?

I invite you to slow down this fall and reflect on what it might be time to let go of in your life. Maybe it will be physical clutter, maybe it will be an old grudge or resentment, maybe it is time to ask for forgiveness or seek forgiveness, maybe it's time to let go of a person, belief, story or mood that is getting in the way of you experiencing more of what you want in life. Now is the time to follow the natural flow of the universe and let go of what you do not need.

The quote "this too shall pass" is accurate.  Whatever your sadness, difficulty, challenge, pain or suffering, it is only temporary. There are brighter days and an end in sight if you are willing to take the next step. Although it is not pleasant or comfortable to have to go through some of our life situations, it is possible to extract the wisdom out of the lesson and design a brighter future.

You could say it is time to heal the wound and experience the wisdom. Making peace with your past is the only way to transition fully into what is next for you. If not now, WHEN?

Contact me to explore what might be next for you to take the next step towards  a more peaceful today and a much brighter tomorrow!

I've had individual coaching sessions and various workshops with Denise and though the titles might have changed the intense learning that takes place within has not. Denise has a special gift for uncovering the "layers" that we bring to these workshops and guides us to the true, authentic being that we all strive for.

At the crossroads of retirement and wondering what is next for me, both Female and Fabulous and the Next Step courses granted me the peace and excitement of exploring , a knowing  trust and guidance to be the wonder that I am.
