Inspire Moment #115: Sit Still

Could you be the type of person going through daily life working on achieving success and getting tasks accomplished, only to really feel empty on the inside because you aren’t truly fulfilled?

If so, take an Inspire Moment and apply #115, and Sit Still.  Be alone, turn off the phone, eliminate any noise surrounding you, and take several deep breathes in and out and just Sit Still.  Welcome every emotion that comes to your mind and body and let it cleanse itself in whatever way it needs.  Crying, laughing, shouting, whatever.  Feel it invade you and let it happen.  Take that well deserved time to understand why you feel a lack of fulfillment and try to determine what you could “test out” and try to change in your daily routine to feel a new sense of fulfillment.

Inspire Moment #109: No More Loose Change

Change is often scary for most people, even if it’s in a positive direction.  It’s uncertain.  It can sometimes throw you off course.  My motivation for you behind Inspire Moment #109 is to encourage you to re-frame your mindset to thinking of Change really being a Chance for you.  Get rid of the word Change from your vocabulary now (unless you’re breaking a dollar).  Replace it with the word Chance. A Chance, an opportunity, for things to shift in your life, a Chance for uncertainty (which breeds growth), a Chance to be thrown off course (could be better than where you thought you wanted to go).  The word Chance has a positive connotation.  If you think of any Change in your life as a Chance in your life, you will get through more challenges, temptations, curve balls, etc., much faster, stronger, and more positive that you ever have before.  Remember, everything you have done in your life started with a thought, and that’s one of the only things you have control over.  Let go, test it out, and take a Chance!

Inspire Moment #99: Sunny-Side Up

How do you want your eggs?  I’m sure we have all been asked that question before at breakfast.  Maybe you like them scrambled, over-hard, sunny-side up, or over-easy.

Now ask yourself that same question but replace the word eggs, with life.  How you do want your life?  Scrambled, over-hard, over-easy, or sunny-side up?

Inspire Moment #99 is to help bring happiness to you today and suggest the Sunny-Side Up way for life.  If life is over-hard or scrambled for you right now, Sunny-Side Up could just be the approach to take.  If life seems way over-easy and you need more motivation or balance in your life, Sunny-Side Up could be just the answer for you.

Here a few suggestions on how to begin living Sunny-Side Up…

Try different things in life.  Example- Maybe the scrambled eggs you got at that diner weren’t that good, so instead of ordering the same dish the next time you go do something different and order Sunny-Side Up.  Try something different in your life today.  It could be very simple.

Be open to life and don’t be afraid to ask. Example-Maybe you already like Sunny-Side Up eggs but you don’t feel full when you are done and it doesn’t taste as flavorful of a dish anymore.  Usually there are some potatoes or bread on your dish to dip into the yolk, but lately it’s just been the eggs at the diner.  Next time you’re there be open to ask for a side of bread or more potatoes.  Don’t be afraid to ask!  You never know unless you ask.  You could even be open to spicing it up by putting some hot sauce on those eggs.  Test out something new and see how it sits with you.  Try to be open to life and all the different results you will feel when you try new ways.  Remember, you can’t experience what you don’t know.

Just like you have a choice on how you want your eggs cooked, you also can make a choice on how you want to live your life.  Ready.  Set.  Go…for Sunny-Side-Up!

Inspire Moment #98: Permission Slip

Remember when you were a kid you had to get a permission slip to go on a school field trip?  Maybe sometimes you would get one from your mom or dad to take a different bus home with a friend or to have another friend’s parent pick you up after school?  Remember those days…when you got the approval to take some time and do something fun, something different, something you needed to do?

Inspire Moment #98 is about your Permission Slip in life now.  It’s often hard to give ourselves the permission to take a break from the busy life most of us lead.  The approval to know that it’s ok to go out and have some fun during the week or to stay in and rest, to take time off from work for a vacation, or go out to lunch instead of staying in having a working lunch in the office or simply  just taking time to eat lunch!  Why are we so hard on ourselves?

We had to get a Permission Slip when we were younger and so it gets your Coach thinking that maybe some of us still need a Permission Slip to do things in our life today.  If you struggle with that then it’s time to “Flip the Switch™” in your mind and create your Permission Slip.  Please keep reading for a suggested action step on where you can start.

Could your Permission Slip be a reminder on your phone?  If so, what does it say?  How often do you see it?  Could is be something you write out on an index card that says “Permission Slip?”  Is it a check mark you put in your calendar that allows you permission twice a week to do “those things” to bring you back in balance?  If so, how do you remember to check it off?  Take an Inspire Moment now to think about what action step you will take today or next week to remember to give yourself a Permission Slip

Because allowing yourself to do what you need to do in order to feel truly in balance with who you are on the inside is the most important authorization you can give yourself in life.
