An interaction with my daughter prompted a lightbulb moment for me. After close to 3 hours of homework (which is abnormal for my 10 year old), I told Lilly to stop doing homework and explained that it would be alright if she got an "RDR" (recess detention room). She was baffled by my statement and insisted that she stay up late to complete her assignments. I then conveyed to Lilly how the exhaustion wasn't worth the cost to her well-being. LIGHTBULB! I just suffered a 3 day migraine prompted by the lack of sleep--all for juggling life's demands. Lesson: sometimes the price of excellence isn't worth the cost to self-care. As I cuddled my daughter as she went to bed that night, attempting to speak words of comfort, I realized those words were for me. Has juggling life's demands cost you your ability to care for yourself?

It's hard to believe, but I have been in business for almost 7 years! As my business has grown, I have decided to take a break from blog posts and focus my attention on providing specialty services, some of which include Purpose Clarity Coaching, Life Map Coaching, and Enneagram Spectrum of Personality Types Coaching. I have received certifications in each of these areas (accredited certifications for CEU through the Center for Credentialing and Education). While I miss interfacing with you through this blog, I am excited to offer additional services to my clients. Please enjoy my blog archives.
