Hey diy ass-kicker!
 
It’s summer time! Do you love it as much as I do?
 
The heat, the sunshine, the life blood given to all things growing?
 
Now, you all know that my coaching practice is one of healing. The women who come to me for healing coaching are trying their hardest to get past some pretty raw emotional shit kickings.
 
In knowing what it takes to heal from past wounds, I am huge on encouraging women to keep up their healing practices. They decide what will help them heal, we set up a plan for how they can do that, and they keep it up.
 
And as part of that, I also know that we all drop the ball sometimes. It’s when you don’t follow through on what you thought would work, for whatever reason. And while dropping the ball is more common than you think (opening up more things to take a deep coaching look at), not grabbing the ball and running like hell toward your goal isn’t always a bad thing.
 
See, life is fluid. It's always moving and changing, and so are we as individuals. And sometimes in this fluid life, we have to give ourselves a break. A rest. A breather.
 
So while the summer can give us extra energy to get moving on self-improvement, it can also give us that breather. Time to stop, reflect, re-evaluate, fill your senses with what’s in front of you that makes you feel great, and re-charge those parts of you that need a break in ways that make you feel fantastic!
 
Now that’s a way to spend the summer! In the words of the famous Charlie Brown…"am I right?"
 
I wouldn’t be a very good coach if I didn’t help you get the best return on your summer break as you possibly can. The goal of a summer break is to put aside what challenges you, for the time to let yourself recharge. That means taking personal control of how you really want to feel this summer.
 
Accept your absolute right to take the time for this break! Even if you are secretly saying that you can’t do it. You can, and you deserve it. New summer mantra… I deserve a summer that will leave me feeling peaceful.
 
Start planning for a new mindset. If you don’t plan for feeling great, the same-old is what you’re gonna get. Recognize any thinking that limits your summer break and come up with another thought that hands it to you on a silver platter. Change your thinking that life is hard into “I am letting everything feel easy for the summer”.
 
Stay out of the negative and accept the positive. That means people, places and things. And if that scares the crap out of you, remember that this is only a summer break.
 
You can always go back to hanging with people who suck your soul dry or doing things that feel like shit again in September! Since I have quoted Charlie Brown, I’ll match it with one from Scarlett O’Hara.
 
I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.” 🙂
 
It’s not tomorrow yet though, so don’t forget to share your new found attitude with people around you!
 
I think I’m smelling a trend!!
