Nicole’s 4 Steps To Finding Your Life’s Flavor

No comments

One of the biggest tricks to plugging in and thinking possible is finding your flavor.

Why do I use the word “flavor”? Because I want to help you to get you out of your head and into your heart and soul. So much of our programming has to do with thinking. And thinking is great! For some things. We need our thinking brain for math and science and maps and all kinds of other logic-based reasoning, but what we know about happiness is that it is NOT one size fits all principle.  There is no one correct solution for everyone, the way there might be to a math or science problem. Therefore thinking only is not the sole key toward achieving happiness. We must also include the heart.

You will be okay again – the art of getting back up

The last couple years I have been suckered punched. I have also learned to get up after being sucker punched. In between those knock outs I have experienced a full and wonderful life.

Helplessness – Then the Call to Action

2 comments

How do you feel when someone comes to you with pain…emotional or otherwise? What happens in your body? What do you want to do? What do you want to say? 

Now picture when you are in pain…emotional or otherwise, what is that you want? What is it that you most want people to say or do?

Finding the Gold In Imperfection

No comments

Awhile ago my husband and I went to go see the unique and iconic singer Sia.  She was amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed the show. 

She never took center stage, instead choosing to stand off to the side. Her face was never visible.  She stayed hidden behind her iconic wig. On center stage were her amazing dancers and actors and her full, beautiful voice filled the space around us. It was a full production. Yet she never placed herself at the center of it all.

We Can Walk Through It

No comments

This morning when I woke up the sun hit my face in a way that made me feel happy, glad to be alive. It’s not because I slept well. I woke up halfway through the night thinking for too long before I fell back asleep. And today is full and with no breaks. But still I feel good.

Are You Really Caring Less?

No comments

My very favorite part of the growth process is when change becomes so real and so natural that it becomes like a fire in your belly that can’t be contained. Let’s call it a good fire. I felt this way after my divorce from my first husband. Leaving without knowing if I would even marry again (and not really caring either way on that one), not knowing how or if I would have children (something I still wanted) and saying to the world…whatever comes next I don’t care because anything is better than this. I felt as if I stopped caring about what others thought (as much). And started caring MORE about what was important to me. What was once a small flame of self love, respect and deep knowing grew big and bright.

Grumpiness

No comments

Lately I have been struggling with a bit of grumpiness. 

It’s not out of control but it sits there under the surface, tugging at me.  You know…just a low level crankiness.  And with that crankiness I find that lately I am noticing everything that I DON’T LIKE.

Get Used to People Liking YOU for YOU (and if they don’t let ‘em go)

No comments

Do you struggle with intimacy? 

Do you wonder if someone is nuts because they seem to actually like YOU?

Do you find yourself in relationships where you feel undervalued?

Where Do You Plug In?

No comments

Over the past 15 years my views on what it means to “have issues” have changed. Sure there are people who have serious mental illnesses – and that absolutely cannot be minimized. It’s important to act quickly and thoroughly when someone has acute health issues. Yet I have come to realize that most of us are just dealing with the human condition.
