Focus & Contentment ~ My New Huffington Post Blog!

In 2015, I’m choosing to focus on one thing at a time, let go of what’s no longer energizing me, and be more present in the here and the now.  This means embracing the present moment, and focusing on what is truly important and giving energy to my life!

I talk about this in my latest blog for the Huffington Post entitled “Focus, Contentment, and How I’m Choosing to Be Here Now.”

Here and Now

Letting go and learning to focus on one thing at a time can be a challenging, life-long journey. Believe me, I know this first hand, and I trust sharing my experiences will empower you to share yours.

Do you struggle with focus or contentment?  Has something specific helped you remain present and “in the moment?”

I would love to hear your thoughts! Share them in the comments section below.

And if you missed them, here are my past Huffington Post blogs where I talk about kicking resistance in the ass and finding the power to keep going in 2014.

Give thanks for all of your support and for sharing this amazing journey with me!

I look forward to reading and responding to your comments 🙂

Blessings,

Feeling Funky?  Have the Monday blues?  Having a moment of feeling ‘unsure’ about where you’re going with your business? You’re not alone. If you’re feeling like you’re in a motivational or inspirational rut – it happens. Often times this can lead to you not wanting to “show up” either emotionally or otherwise in your personal or professional lives.  While taking a personal day may be necessary, there may be other people or priorities that need your attention. We’ve all been there. The holidays are over, and maybe you’re feeling a little funky and struggling with getting back into your groove.

2012 year in review

Yes, without a doubt.. 2012 has been quite a year.  This year will absolutely be remembered as a year of great transformation and the experience of crossing a significant threshold in my own souls journey and evolution.     This year has been filled with major transformation, expansion of my heart, mind, body and soul, facing and embracing challenges, the highs and lows, discomfort and self doubt ranging from slight to severe, increasing my capacity to love myself more fully and wholly especially when my actions or reactions weren’t so lovable, I made the greatest financial investment in my own development of personal and professional skills and capacities in 2012 than ever before, I also simultaneously increased my ability to receive more money and celebrated my highest earning month yet in November, I developed my first business, embraced celebration as a way to acknowledge myself, uplift & uplevel my experience and started showing up in life in brand new ways in all of my relations.   Many times during this last year it felt like I was in a push and pull type of relationship with the energies of 2012.  I’d have an awakening and then fear would rise up … Continue reading
