UNCONDITIONAL

Loving unconditionally isn't just something you reserve for your kids. Imagine who you would be, how you would be present as a parent, if you felt, very deeply felt, unconditional love for yourself?

GREEN


The grass is not greener on the other side.  It is plenty green exactly where you’re standing if you just paid attention to where you were standing.  That’s gratitude.

ZEBRA


When you hear hoofbeats don’t think zebras, think horses.

It’s an aphorism that reminds us that solutions are usually not as exotic or as complex as our lizard brain would make us believe.  Sometimes a solution simply requires that we do absolutely nothing.  Sometimes the best way to solve a problem is by not creating one in the first place.  

In other words, when confronted with a horse, don’t turn it into a zebra.

FIT


What relationships have you outgrown?
What attitudes have you outgrown?
What habits have you outgrown?

Stop trying to squeeze yourself into things you’ve outgrown.  Time to move on.

THE POWER OF STORY


We can’t underestimate the power of story.  Stories; those told to us and those we tell ourselves have huge influence on who we are and how we live our lives.  What we forget however is that if we’re living a story that doesn’t fit with who we are we can change it.

And how do we change our story...how do we change anything?  One part nerve, two parts knowledge, and three parts tenacity.
