This is so true. My job is to help others with their confidence, goals, feeling good about themselves, and so much more. Working with my clients is also rewarding for me. It makes me feel so good knowing that I am making a difference. When my clients tell me that they are learning so much from me, and how their lives are changing, it makes me feel so blessed. Did you know that you can make a difference just by smiling or saying hello to someone? Did you know that you can make a difference just by sending a message to someone to let them know you are thinking of them? There are many things that you can do to make a difference. Try it. The feeling is simply amazing!
“The best book you will ever read, is the one you write about yourself” ~Kimberly Gilbert~

Taking the time to write has been a great comfort to me. My journal is my private therapy. Feeling good? Write it down. Feeling bad? Write it down. Feeling happy? Write it down. Feeling sad? Write it down. Just write it down!

Do you have goals set? Have you went out and reached your goals? If not, what are you waiting for? Be a Goal Getter. Start working on your goals.

How important is it to put yourself before others? How important is it to put others before yourself? I have asked myself both of these questions many times. I have always put the needs of others first. I pushed my needs aside in order to help family and friends. At times I even put needs first to those that I didn’t know.

It wasn’t until not long ago when I realized that I have been doing it wrong all these years. I went without, I was left out, I lost my apartment, I quit my job, and sacrificed so much because there were other people who needed, or I guess it is safe to say, demanded, my help. I missed out on so much because I put their needs and wants before I took care of myself.

I will not say that I wish things were different because I wouldn’t be where I am today and probably wouldn’t be married to my best friend if things would have been different. I do however, wish that things would have been different from the start many years ago when I couldn’t stand up to others and tell them that they would have to wait until I did what I needed to do.

Am I selfish to feel that way? No, I am not. We should not feel a bit selfish for putting ourselves first. I feel that I have to take care of myself and my needs, and get my things done first. I can always make room to care for others, but I must take care of myself first.

So tell me, what are your thoughts on putting yourself first? What are your thoughts on what I just talked about? I would love to hear yours.

Happy Thanksgiving!

What does “Thanksgiving” mean to you? Do you have any special traditions for Thanksgiving? How do you spend your Thanksgiving holiday? Is this a time for you to travel? Or do you have friends and family traveling to you?

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love hosting Thanksgiving dinners. This is something that I have done for many years. It was always a tradition for family and friends to come to our home when I was younger. I will always remember spending hours and days in the kitchen with my mother getting ready for Thanksgiving. After she passed away in 2014, I continued the tradition. I prepare all of the meals, do mostly all of the cooking and baking, and have a house full of loved ones.

However, this year, 2020, is going to be different. I started planning for this holiday some time ago, and had planned on having a house full. My husband and I started the shopping weeks ago. But, due to illness in the family, and Covid positive test results, things have changed. I am still going to do all of the cooking, but the only people in the house this year is going to be my husband David and myself. My daughter tested positive for Covid, so her and her little family have to be quarantined until after Thanksgiving. After everything is ready, my husband and I are going to be packing up food and delivering it to my daughter and her family. We will still have Thanksgiving, but will just have to do it in our own homes. Although this saddens me, I am still thankful that we will be able to enjoy the same food together, yet separately.

Sometimes we just have to change up the traditions a little bit. Although it may not be easy, and it may not be as fun as the real thing, it will still be a special time and something to look back on as a great memory.

Why write it down?

Why is journaling so important? How can it be helpful? In my coaching programs I encourage my clients to keep a journal. I feel that it is important to write in a journal daily. If not daily, then as much as you possibly can. Writing things down, such as, your moods, mood changes, stresses, struggles, upsets, angers, happy thoughts, and so on, can actually help with “self therapy”. Here is an example of what I mean by “self therapy”.

* I once wrote in my journal about a time that I was so unhappy. Things seemed to be falling apart and I wanted to just give up on it all. I put my journal away for several days and just went about my day. When I returned back to my journal I wrote down how I was feeling at that moment. It was a good day, and I was happy again and I explained in my journal what was making me happy. A while after that, I was having a not so good day and felt like things were getting bad again. I decided to open up my journal and read things that I wrote down in the past. I came across parts of my journal when things were not so good, but then continued to read about how I turned those thoughts and moods into something better. At that point, I knew that giving up was not an option. *

There are always going to be bad days for us, but we can turn them into good days. Going back and reading things I wrote in my journal is always helpful.
