Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hello lovely and welcome to 2021! We made it! If you get my emails or follow me on social media, you’ll know I took some time this holiday to recharge, recuperate and honestly turn everything (including me) off. Very little social media, no coaching at all for over a WEEK! yikes! And yet, everyone seems to have survived! And it was soooo needed. I mean, have you ever finally done something, or gotten something and realized you didn’t realize how…

Raising your awareness about self-care or self-soothing is going to help you make better choices for yourself. Ones that support your vision of…

I Wasn’t Ready!

I Wasn’t Ready!

I was talking to a friend of mine about this series on Netflix and she was telling me about the finale and she said that classic line “I wasn’t ready for that!” I (mostly) laughed and said: “I know, I just was not emotionally prepared for that!” And for a moment I was transported to all those times when I said: “I wasn’t ready” and yet here we are! All the way home I kept thinking about that sentence. I…

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

I Lied And Said I Was Busy

Have you ever lied about being ‘busy’? The vague ‘oh I have an appointment then” when you really don’t? That sort of thing? I most certainly have.  In the past I think I lied about this quite often. Or worse didn’t and struggled through situations that were far too much for my physical well-being, not to mention emotional or mental well-being. I don’t know about you, but I use to lie about being busy to avoid the looks, the feelings…

A Word On Enough-ness

A Word On Enough-ness

Beautiful Soul, this is your friendly reminder that You Are Enough. Too often we push and pull at our Selves, til we hardly recognize who we really are in this world because we’re trying so desperately to fit into it. Desperate to BE enough, when the truth it our enough-ness is already Truth. You are NOT responsible for anyone else. You are not them. They are not you. And yet, we are all innately connected. But only you are responsible…

A ‘who me?’ Moment You Can Learn From Too

A ‘who me?’ Moment You Can Learn From Too

Ever have a ‘who me?’ moment?  You know, where you can’t believe someone just said that about you? I had 2 last week that have inspired this post that were almost identical.  This of course, set me to mulling it over in my head and journaling about it to sort it all out. All it was, was a little side comment from someone. They simply said ‘Bonnie never gets upset, she’s always got it together even at the end of…

Why You Don’t Need New Year Resolutions

Why You Don’t Need New Year Resolutions

Why don’t you need to bother with New Year’s resolutions? Easy answer?  Because they SUCK and you don’t really care about them anyway. C’mon, am I right? Little bit? Yeah, I thought so. It’s December 31st, 2016 today. New Year’s Eve Baby! At 8am I’ve already had 3 emails and have seen multiple Facebook and twitter posts about how to ‘FIX’ your new year’s resolutions this year.  Everything from wording them differently, to buy this app, to getting a ‘resolution…
