"Celebrate what you want to see more of." -- Thomas J. Peters
I like to plan! I like to imagine and dream and devise little strategies on how to create what I want in my life. I like having goals and planning keeps me focused, having fun and staying motivated.
An important part of achieving your goals, a part we often skim over or completely neglect, is recognizing when we have received what we wanted! This is a time to celebrate!!
A few months ago, I wrote in my journal that I wanted to be on a radio show to share my story with the intention to inspire people to create more of what they want in their lives.
Just last week, I was interviewed by a fitness professional in Georgia for her live radio show. I was so nervous! I had been preparing for this interview for over a month and that morning my internet connection dropped and my two back up plans fell through. Sparing you all the dramatic details :) it eventually worked out and I sat down in a booked conference room at a posh hotel with an hour to spare.
Live, I shared my story and strategies for dealing with stress (ironically) and how to align with your ideal life. The outcome: it actually went really well!!
I was so relieved and completely pumped! I sat there in that cold air conditioned conference room at the head of the enormous table beaming with joy! It was a very good moment.
When we think about goals, we usually think about the future.
But what about the goals that you have already accomplished?
Think about your life now, how many of your dreams have come true? Think about all of the obstacles that you have had to overcome to get where you are today!
Recognize that you have received what you wanted and take the time to celebrate!
Read more about life as a learning process and living with intention!
Wishing you joy today!
ACTIVITY: Practice filling yourself up with joy! Keep your good news to yourself for one day!
And if that seems like an eternity, just try it for one hour and gradually hold it in for longer. Instead of calling your best friend after getting the news about the job, or the announcement - hold it in! Dance, celebrate - express yourself, alone!
This is a fantastic exercise for getting to know how your body feels when it feels good. Feel the excitement inside, you are making a conscious decision to celebrate it all on your own! You did it! Then, when you are ready, share it and celebrate more!

Step 1: Recognize what isn't working. This first step can be difficult since we tend to get very comfortable and attached to our routines and tend to ignore or justify things that seem too big to face!
Step 2: Create and clarifying pictures of what we want! As a group, we will work on fun activities to create vivid pictures of what we really want our lives to look like.
Caution: We all know the phrase, be careful what you wish for and that getting what we want isn't always what we expect or are ready for so we will be addressing:
self defeating habits, how to accept acceptance, creating boundaries and self-care
develop self-trust and awareness, and instant stress management techniques!
Bring a friend! Give the perfect holiday gift!
