"There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle. 
The other is as though everything is a miracle."
Greetings to YOU and a Warm, Summer Welcome to our new Subscribers!

Hope you had a wonderful Independence Day weekend!  My husband and I enjoyed 3 lazy days or pure R & R back at our quiet cabin get-away in WVA while some very dear friends loved on our children; what a generous gift of Freedom from the fast pace of everyday responsibities! 
With plenty of "hammock time" to rejuvenate I found myself reflecting back to one short year ago, when my routine hysterectomy led to post op bleeding and my near death. 
(If we've met since then, I invite you to read about my life changing miraclehere). 
Some may think it was more like bad luck than a miracle, but I strongly disagree. You see,a miracle is simply a "shift in perspective", and I now see many things either more strongly or differently than I did before.  Here are just 3 of my Aha's in hopes they inspire you in some way.
  •  NOW  is the time to say "I Love You" to others without holding back.  Is there someone in your life who needs to hear this from you?  Make the call, send the note.  Show them they matter by how you choose to treat them.  
  •  NOW is the time to live more fully, because this moment may be all we have! Be grateful for the little things.  Live in the present moment and take less for granted.  (For instance, last week during a productive block of work time, day camp called to say my daughter felt sick and needed me.  Instead of thinking about what I wouldn't get done on my business to-do list, I thought "I'm so glad I get to be the one that gets to go pick her up and help her feel better... work can always wait."  Same thing happened the next day when my son lost his cell phone and I got to gladly drop everything and drive him back to the 20 miles of mountain biking trails to re-trace his route, and celebrate him finding it!)
  • NOW is the time to Fall in Love with your Purpose and the living of it.  Don't Wait until "someday when" (things slow down, my kids start school, I have more money, I get a new job etc...)  Find a small way to move forward on your dreams now.  Be Patient and take heart... Small Changes = BIG Results over time! 

So Today, I have 3 Coach Requests for you: 

  1. Tell someone you love them and how much they mean to you.
  2. Replace "I have to" with "I get to" and feel the shift from frustration to gratitude.
  3. Take a Step towards Follwing your heart to a Path of Purpose.

There's a difference you're meant to make in this world.  Maybe you're unclear about what that is or life has gotten so crazy that you're just surviving and don't know when you'd find the time to figure it out.  Perhaps long ago you got a glimpse of what living on purpose meant to you but you've forgotten?  No worries, you're not alone because I've been there too. 


If you're ready to FREE yourself from confusion and the struggle of going it alone, but aren't sure how to do it, I stand ready and willing with tips, tools and encouragement as you to embrace new perspectives and create the wonderful life you dream of!


Synergy is created when you have a partner walking beside you.  It's powerful momentum forward towards your goals, allowing you to reach them faster than you would have on your own.


Please feel free to contact me for a complimentary session to see how resilience coaching may benefit you or someone you love.  I'm just a call or Email away.


Let's keep looking for the Miracles all around us, k? 


p.s. Remember, SYNERGY = SHORTCUT...If you want to walk fast, walk alone.  If you want to walk far, walk together. (Indian Proverb)

Great Story!
Good Luck or Bad Luck?

An old man and his son worked on a small farm, with only one horse to plow.  One day, the horse ran away.  "How terrible," sympathized the neighbors.  "What bad luck."


"Who knows whether it is bad luck or good luck," the farmer replied.


A week later, the horse returned from the mountains leading five wild mares into the barn. 

"What wonderful luck!" said the neighbors.


"Good Luck, Bad luck, who knows?" answered the old man.
The next day, the son, trying to tame one of the horses, fell and broke his leg. 
"How terrible. What bad luck!" 
"Bad luck, good luck?"
The army came to all the farms to take the young men for war, but the farmer's son was of no use to them, so he was spared.
"Good?  Bad?"
