Daily Dose—FIND YOUR PASSION AGAIN

Daily Dose—FIND YOUR PASSION AGAIN

What do you want? Fight for it!   When all seems lost—you fail the test, you lose the investor, you eat the cake—don’t throw up your hands in despair and give up.  Reassess, regroup and fight harder instead!  Go back to what made you start in the first place.  Why do you want to write?  Why do you want to get healthy? Why do you want to run a marathon?  Why do you want to build a business?  Why do you want to go to school?  Why do you want to learn how to fly a plane?  Why do you want to get your masters degree?  Why do you want to get...

Daily Dose—GIVE THANKS

Daily Dose—GIVE THANKS

  Worry taking up too much space?   Give thanks instead!   When the worry monster takes over—about money, about relationships, about work, about holiday guests—acknowledge it, note it and then replace it with giving thanks instead!  Replace worry by thinking about who and what you are actually grateful for and give thanks for it and for them. Replace worry by feeling thankful. Replace worry by saying thank you. Replace worry by taking action to assuage that worry and get to a place of thankfulness.  Be aware when worry takes up...

Daily Dose—YOU CAN DO IT

Daily Dose—YOU CAN DO IT

Afraid you’ll fail? Do it anyway!   Whatever it is, you can do it!  The only way to succeed is to first fail.  If we don’t fail, how will we ever figure anything out?   How will we ever know what works or what doesn’t work?  How will we ever know what matters enough to not give up?  Success is the result of failure or more likely a long string of failures.  Giving up is the only failure that is permanent. If you stop writing, you’ll never know if you could write an entire book.  If you stop drawing, you’ll never know if you could paint...

Daily Dose—MOVE FORWARD

Can’t let go? Move forward instead. There are times when letting go of something or someone—literally or figuratively—might not actually be possible for you. You may still have to see your ex-husband because you created a child together.  You may still have to take your thyroid medication to keep your energy up and be healthy.  You may not want to let go of the friend or mother or father or child in your life who died.  You may want to keep their memory alive and with you forever.  Not being able to let go of these realities in your life...

Daily Dose—LET IT GO

Daily Dose—LET IT GO

What’s weighing you down? Let it go!   You are capable of becoming healthy, strong, independent, educated, financially secure and creatively fulfilled!  What’s stopping you? Sometimes you have to let go of the things, people, places, and behaviors that aren’t serving your greater good in order to create a new best you.  Whatever or whoever is weighing you down it’s time to let it or them go!  What are you holding onto that isn’t allowing you to grow, change, expand, discover, or create the life you want to live?  Is it happy hour, sugar,...

Daily Dose—CREATE A SUPPORT SYSTEM

Daily Dose—CREATE A SUPPORT SYSTEM

Do you think you have to do it all alone? Think again. Instead of plodding along alone, why not find some like-minded support? There is someone out there who wants to support you, see you succeed, or is setting out to reach the same or similar goal as you. Find them! A friend, a family member, a support group, an online community, whatever or whoever you feel safe reaching out to for encouragement and support. It can be scary enough setting a goal, admitting you need help to accomplish it can be even scarier. Don’t be scared! You were brave...

Daily Dose—START THE WEEK OFF RIGHT

Do you hate Mondays?! Get over it.   For many, Mondays are the first day of the workweek.  Collective ugh, right?  WRONG!  It’s a new beginning.  A fresh start.  A chance to do better, get it right, make a change.  What’s not to love about that awesomeness?  Sure, there may be work involved you’re not crazy about.  But, if you change your thinking, you can shift your attitude.  How wonderful is it that you have work that pays you and helps you pursue your dreams, cover your mortgage and feed your kids?  How fantastic is it that you have...

Daily Dose—DO MORE OF WHAT YOU LOVE

What do you do because you love to do it?!  Do more of that. No one is watching.  No one is cheering you on.  No one is telling you, “good job.”  No one is paying you.  No one is waiting for it.  No one cares…but you.  What do you love doing so much that you don’t care what anyone else thinks?  What do you love doing so much that you don’t care whether you get paid for doing it or not?  What do you love doing so much that even when it gets hard or difficult, you still want to do it?  What do you love doing so much that you do it simply...

Daily Dose:  MAKE A CHOICE

Who’s ready for some motivation?! 2015 will consist of 365 days.  What do you plan to create from your days?   You will have 24 hours during each of those days.  What can you create from your hours?  The time will pass whether you set an intention, start a new project or decide to change something in your life or help someone in need.    Why not make the most of every moment of every day of this year and decide to create something?  By the end of the year, from the sum of your actions during your time on earth in 2015, you can...

Tembi Locke Launches “The Kitchen Widow”

Posted by on Dec 22, 2014 in Grief, In The Trenches, Inspiration, THINK BLOG | 0 comments

One of the stars of my film Collusions, the amazingly talented Tembi Locke, has just launched an informative and incredibly inspiring website for anyone who has experienced loss in their life or is in the painful process of losing someone.  Tembi describes the site as, “A place where we inspire connection and support in times of illness and grief.”  How perfect and much needed is that?!?  Especially during the holidays.  After losing My Dad this year, the theme and tone and love radiating from The Kitchen Widow felt like a warm,...
