Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

[ A Recap ]

I often send out emails asking what my clients and audience would like to read about.  I feel there is VALUE in writing, and POWER in writing that speaks to the solving of everyday problems that the motivated people and Entrepreneurs I work with have.

Recently, a client inquired about “How to move away from the stress of NOT Having enough”, essentially in order to have an abundant and exciting business as an Entrepreneur.  Here’s the response I posted.

I received another ask to blog about “how to relax when I just make what I need and not more”. My client went on to ask a few other things, and I responded in a post entitled, “The Top 3 Wrong Ways To Create The Life You Want: A Story In Images”.

Since the holidays are here, today’s Gentle Nudge is about Stress Management.

[ 5 Super Tips ]

It is no surprise that the holidays are here.  That means you are probably being pulled in all directions, and on the inside, you are screaming like a frantic bird.  I’m here to help you lose the overwhelm so you can start to have more joy during these times. It is my sincerest hope that one (or more) of these tips will help you; not just for the holidays, but for managing your stress, in general!

  1. Start Earlier

    I got an email earlier this year from a mentor who had this brilliant, out-of-the-box idea for managing your time, especially around the holidays.  The tip? Start Earlier!

    Think about how much time (and how less stress) you’d have by simply sending out your holiday cards and gifts in June versus in late-November.  With places like Amazon, for example, you can literally send E-GiftCards that can be used any time and for gifts your family and friends will truly enjoy (because they get to choose them).

    So, next year, start earlier! By this time next year, you’ll wish you did! Aside, aren’t the holidays seemingly starting earlier anyway?

  2. There’s Only One Step

    Screen Shot 2014-12-10 at 1.28.35 PMThe other day, this amazing two minute video was posted on my Facebook page.  In it, Oprah chats about a simple principle: At any given time, there’s only one step.  So, instead of being overwhelmed with all the things you have to get done this holiday season, focus on the one thing that you can get done now, then the next, and then the next… Which brings me to #3:

  3. Breathe

    I’ve been doing a 30 Day Yoga Challenge, and what I’ve learned in my 19 days is that yoga is not about poses and being flexible, contrary to popular belief.  In fact, Yoga is about tapping into the power of your breath; for in the breathing comes the ability to handle anything that comes your way. So does, #4:

  4. Delegate

    3 Smart Strategies to Create More Time In Your Day
    Stop. Ask for help!

    In my popular Gentle Nudge 3 Smart Strategies To Create More Time In Your Day, I outline the importance of learning to delegate and the reason why. If you were to only master this one tip, you’d truly become more relaxed this holiday and in your daily life. By the same token, you can reduce overwhelm by learning to

  5. Say NO

    protest-464616_1920At the end of the day, you only have 24 hours. You can do everything, and you will feel exhausted, resentful and not happy in the process.  Find ways to be more generous to yourself. Start by remembering that you always have the power to say no if you feel overwhelmed.  Say yes to a stress-free holiday by kindly, respectfully saying NO.

A Quote To Set Your Life in Motion! #inspirational #success


A Quote To Set Your Life in Motion!

stars-345902_1920

“Start With Action. End With Action.”

This quote is something I live by. I heard someone say it on a set I was working on many years ago, and it just kind of stuck.

It reminds me of the Universal Law of Action, and how important it is to take action in order to create your life. You simply can’t live on a wish alone… you must take the steps to attain it! Momentum, and persistence, generates success and success is only created by taking action.

To end with action, is to be in gratitude, an act of celebration for what you have.
For as we all know:

So, today is the first day of the rest of your abundant life. How will you take action today?

The Secret To Making Your Life Easier

freedom-307791Celebrate

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #‎GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

[ The First 100 Years Are The Hardest ]

My grandpa is 91.

He says the first 100 years are always the hardest.  He’s been saying it as long as I can remember.

On the one hand, I find myself laughing because it is a rather hilarious statement.

On the other hand, as I get older, I find myself wondering,

“100 years?! How can I shorten that time?” 

Because I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend 100 of my 120 years here trudging through the mud! 🙂  I spent the last 30 years getting myself unglued from the illusion of the Earth, and I’d like to keep it that way!

So, I mulled it over, and

Then one day, it clicked.

There IS a way to shorten the hardship of the years.
(It’s actually so simple, I realized children do it all the time!)

baby-433093_1920

Want to know the secret?

[ You Make Your Life Easier By Celebrating ]

Yup.  As children, even though life is “hard”, we celebrate, clapping and shouting “YAY!” every chance we get in celebration of new things we’ve accomplished or learned.

And generally speaking, our parents and caregivers are there to root us on as we uncover new territory with each new step we make towards progressing into fully-formed human beings.

We celebrate learning to talk, walk, eat, even poop.  We celebrate being alive with birthdays…

Speaking of which, I know that celebrating birthdays are not a part of some religious faiths, and I’ve always known this, but it just dawned on me that to not celebrate is like enslaving one to forgetting the reason we are here on Earth: to be joyful and happy.

Celebration is healthy, and therefore, it brings us more health and well-being.

When we don’t celebrate, even the smallest things like another year being born, to me, it feels like we are actually slapping the Universe in the mouth with un-appreciation.

Plus,

[ There is power in Celebration ]

OK, another soap box moment here:  Just as I don’t condone not celebrating things like your life through a birthday or other similar ceremony or ritual, I also don’t condone the act of celebrating things that shouldn’t be recognized… Example: *ahem* Thanksgiving Day, “aka” Colonization Day.  It’s like giving credit to and celebrating the person who won something, even though they stole the idea from their lab partner.

Just sayin’.

Whether you celebrate or don’t celebrate, (and whether you celebrate with integrity or not), there is POWER in celebration.

So, I say, celebrate with integrity. It will set you free…

[Celebrating vs being grateful]

I am working with a client who asked me the other day, “what is the difference between celebrating and being grateful? How would you specify?”

My answer: Celebrating is just one way to be grateful.  At the same time, when you are grateful you’ll have a lot to celebrate, because when you are grateful you’ll attract more of that to be grateful for!

oprah-500x503

So, in essence what is the REAL secret to making your life easier?

Being grateful.

Ever notice that all roads lead back to gratitude? More over, having an attitude of gratitude?  Could life really be that simple and easy?

[ What if I don’t have anything to celebrate? ]

There’s ALWAYS something to celebrate and be grateful for.  And if you’re not being grateful, I know from personal experience that you’ll stay in the same rut, and even fall deeper into the negative mind matrix… such a slippery slope!

When I’ve been in my deepest darkest depressive states through my teens into my 20s (and I mean depression, not sadness), I’ve found myself not being grateful that I even  had a bed to be depressed in in the first place.

The more I filled my brain with ungrateful thoughts, the deeper my despair became.  But, something would spark in me, or I’d “randomly” get a call from a friend, or some other Gentle Nudge from the Universe that reminded me of the things to celebrate and be grateful for.  I would put effort into making the shift and then more of the good things to celebrate and be grateful for would show up, almost “miraculously”…

alwayssomething

[ Celebrate Life ]

Start with life. Celebrate your life, and the fact that you were a fast swimmer and were birthed. 🙂

If you’re a woman, don’t think of your periods as disgusting, celebrate them as the essence of your beauty.

If you’re a man, don’t think of being without work as emasculating, celebrate the time to discover the essence of your power.

If you’re a teen, don’t think of your life as over when you feel no one gets you.  CELEBRATE that most people will never understand you because you’re f*ckin’ awesome!

Celebrate every small step.  I’ll be 2 years sober in December 2014, but I had a few missteps in the beginning.  Did I get angry? No, I celebrated the process and kept going!

Celebrate your breath, celebrate your heart, celebrate the one friend you have, because truly you don’t need 100 friends who just talk about you behind your back.

[ I am grateful for my grandpa ]

selfiegrandpa

When I felt unloved, unsupported and like I had nothing to be grateful for, my grandpa was always there to inspire and motivate me.  And the same goes for when everything was going well… Grandpa Greene is always there to inspire and motivate me.

Truly, he is the reason I am alive.

Who is that person for you?
(whether they are alive or not)

If they are still living, Let them know as soon as you can.

Because just as good as you feel to celebrate, people love to know they are appreciated.  You’ll not only shave off hardship time for yourself, but you’ll also do the same for them.

Remember what my grandpa told me in the beginning of this post? You now hold the secret to re-writing that statement for yourself!

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!
