I have arrived!!!! Or have I? What does that even mean? I don't know either. However, what I do know is that I have officially been 40 for 22 days now. I have reflected on many lessons I have learned up to this point in life, and now I am contemplating what's next. I have been asked, "How do you feel being 40?" At first, my immediate response was absolutely nothing feels different. Well, as a few days have passed, something does feel different. I have realized that I spent mo
Eekk! The countdown has started. My 40th birthday is less than a month away. How did I get here already? I feel as though there is no way enough time has gone by for me to be turning 40. However, there are many lessons that I have learned through my almost four decades on this earth. I have really been sitting with what I have learned over the years, and what I plan to do for the next decade. I thought I would share some of my top lessons learned and advice. The first decade
We have all heard about it, and many of us continue to watch it unfold in our lives. Some of us are victims to self-sabotage and don't even see it. If you can relate to any of the following signs, you may be dealing with self-sabotaging behaviour. 1. Picking arguments2. Continuously criticize yourself3. Focus is on what is not or does not work right4. Always comparing yourself to others5. Have been in multiple relationships and always seem to feel the same way such as he does
You may have heard all about setting your intentions, claiming your day, affirming what you want or creating your outcome. However, you may wonder what it all really means. This weekend I was given a huge gift. I have been taking care of an extraordinary and beautiful 12-year old young woman. She gets it from her momma who is also amazing and extraordinary, and happens to be one of my best friends. For privacy sake, we will call her Melanie. I have been practicing intention s
It was Saturday, February 4th at 6:01pm. I had just arrived to a friend's house for dinner and to play cards. Mycell phone rang, and I saw it was my dad. I thought it was odd for him to be calling, at this time of day since he was usually watching basketball games or was out and about. My intuition was screaming, "Answer the call, Lindsey!" After pondering for a couple of second, I answered. On the other end of the call, was not my dad. It was my mom, and she said that she w
There are many times I have been asked the question, “Were you born this way? You are always so positive.” I smile and quickly say, “No.” It takes work to re-train our brain. I like to call the process the “Catch and Shift” method. Many of my coaching clients have heard me use that term over and over again. I have been using this technique for about 10 years, and it has changed my life. I think different, and see life from a filter of gratitude and seeing beauty in everything
I wondered for years what being “authentic” really meant. I finally realized that I did not understand how to be authentic because I did not really know who I was. I knew I carried the labels of a daughter, sister, aunt, niece and friend. I decided to sit with the question, “Who am I?” For the next year, I started to gain clarity and answers to my question. Once I defined who I was outside of my "labels/titles", I was able to just be ME! I learned that I am a POWERFUL, SOFT,
Every day I read something in one of my devotions about the art of #gratitude or the attitude of gratitude. And every day, I find at least 5 things in my life where I express how #grateful to have it in my life. However, a few months back I had something come to me: Why is it that we can be grateful for all the things we have and can do, yet rarely do I hear people actually praise their bodies or themselves more specifically for things they have done or accomplished that day?
