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,...

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...

 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...

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...

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,...

New Declared Dreams!   The Declare Your Dream Experimental Motivation Project is now 183 Dreams strong.  And the dreams run the gamut.  There are dreams that make you think, dreams that inspire, dreams that motivate, dreams that confuse, dreams that make you sad, dreams that make you go, “hmmmmm.”  There are dreams that seem to be in code—only clear to the Dreamer who declared it!  But with each new declared dream that arrives—no matter how big or small, realistic or fantastical, selfish or selfless, simple or creative—power,...

7 Paths to Thinking Outside The Box Inside The Box  and creating from what you have   1.  NO MORE WAITING.  You have two carrots, an onion, a bouillon cube, a bag of rice, an egg and a spice rack:  GO!  What would you make from the limited items you have?  You wouldn’t starve.  You’d get creative.     Don’t wait.  Start creating from what you have right now. 2.  SHIFT YOUR THINKING.  “Think Outside The Box Inside The Box” is a paradox to shift your thinking from limited thoughts, fear of lack and being trapped and...
