Glowing hearts and shiny souls:)

I’m gonna be real for a second.

There is a woman out there in the world, about my age, who is living and breathing and working my dream career.  She is funny and cool and creative and people just love her!  I have thought to myself many a times, “Well if she’s doing it, what’s the point of me even trying? Does the world really need two of us doing the same thing?  Can we even both shine and be extraordinary at this?”  In the back of my mind, she is always there and in those secret, sneaky corners of my brain, I compare my every action to what she’s doing and what she’s done.  Whether or not it's true, I always think she’s doing a better job!!

Do you ever feel like this?!

Call me out if I’m crazy, but I think we have tendency to constantly compare, beat ourselves down, and stop all the magic from happening for us!

Friday night, I had the lucky opportunity to attend Crazy Sexy Miracles with Gabby Bernstein and Kris Carr right here in New York City.  It was an extraordinarily beautiful night of healing, laughter, “ah-ha” and “Mmmhmmmm!” moments.  I sat there in awe of these two beautiful, passionate, strong women who were able to share a stage and both shine so brightly.

At one point, someone even directly asked them a question about how to deal with comparing and competition. Kris Carr, calmly and serenely answered:

“Stars don’t compare themselves to other stars.  Look to nature.  How do the stars do it?”

Ok let’s look to the stars for a moment.  How do they do it!?  Well, what comes to mind is how nice it is to see just one star shining on a dark night in between buildings in New York.  Then I imagine being way far out in the country side where it is pitch black, and quiet and still and I finally look up!  How incredibly breathtaking is it to see thousands and thousands of stars lighting up the night sky?!   You stand in awe.  You can hardly take it all in.  Then there are shooting stars, and dancing stars, and glowing stars-- The entire landscape is just gorgeous.

We’re not meant to compare our gifts.

Our gifts, our talents, our passions--they’re special and perfect and needed--needed to create this gorgeous landscape of glowing hearts and shiny souls.  When we are all able to shine, and dance, and gleam and glow without comparison, side by side... wow!! It’s going to be such a beautiful sight.:)

Are you with me?! How are you going to shine brighter this week and stop that nasty habit of comparing?

To glowing hearts and shiny souls:)

Woo! It’s time to celebrate! A new year is on it’s way! Every one I talk to has a good feeling about 2014.  It’s going to be an incredible year...and so I’ve put together a little exercise to get you thinking about your new year now and to fully set yourself up for success in 2014.

Take ten minutes to quickly answer the next series of questions.  Set a time limit and do not spend more than 30 seconds on each.  Your first reaction is the right one. Here we gooo! 

 

What was your greatest joy in 2013? 

 

What unexpected pleasures and people came into your life?

 

What was your greatest disappointment?

 

What are you bummed you didn’t accomplish? 

 

 

 Who did you hurt over the past year?

 

 

What would you do if you won a million dollars?

 

 

What is your most important goal right now?

 

 

What would you do if you knew this was your last year to live?

 

 

What have you always wanted to try but never have?

  As we move into a new year, it is important to recognize the good and the bad from the year before.  A fresh start involves a whole lot of forgiveness and letting go.  So look those bruises and blisters from 2013 in the eye.   Forgive yourself.  Forgive the people who did you wrong.  Take a deep breath and let it all go. Leave 2013 where it belongs.

Stepping into 2014, how can you bring your goals to the forefront of your mind and your life?  How will you take action to make them happen? Set up a game plan.  Create a schedule.  Register for that big race.  Don’t wait.  Do it now.

What have you been waiting and waiting to do? What has been a dream of yours for a long time?  Where do you desperately want to go?  And how can you make that happen this year?

Time is all you’ve got.  One year is all you’ve got.  What will you make happen for yourself in the next 365 days?

If you need a kick in the butt getting it together, I’m totally here for you!   We can sit down and create an awesome, inspiring, gorgeous action plan to make 2014 the BEST year of your life.  That’s all I want for you.

I am also holding a Vision and Goals Workshop during Hamptons Wellness Week! Check out all the details at www.hamptonswellnessweek.com.  It's going to be an amazing week and I'd love to see you there!

You’re incredible! Have a beautiful New Year’s Eve! I’ll toast to your dreams at mid-night;)
