Monday Morning Motivation... A morning Coffee is my favorite way starting the day, settling the nerves so they don't later fray. ~ Macia Carrington For me it is cup of green tea and honey first and then a cup of coffee. Starting your morning, especially a Monday, with something that brings you comfort and peace is terrific way to take the edge off and look forward to what is ahead.

Saturdays will be Something about me and the week we shared together through this page. It is a way of getting to know me, why I became a Life Coach, and a way to build a trusting Client/Coach relationship. This week was about New Beginnings. We have all had our share of success and failures. I have definitely had my share of both. As I offer postings through out the week you may like to know that I follow my own suggestions. I actually do the different things I offer as questions and exercises. For instance this week I asked "What would you be willing to try if you knew you wouldn't fail." For me the answer to that is write a book! I am currently working on two. I also started small by committing to writing four days a week even if it is just a few sentences. Additionally I have found that the best way for me to handle most, if no all of my problems, is to walk away from them for a bit. This piece of advice is particularly effective when trying to learn new computer programs. Thank you for sharing your week with me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. My next post will be on Monday. Please share and invite others to join us!

Fridays will be Food For Thought. Each Friday I will offer a question. Something to make you think. That is what coaching is all about. Asking the client the right questions to help them find the answers within themselves. Inspiration struck me when I was contemplating this first Friday question. I have learned that when inspiration strikes it is important to pay attention because it is the universe giving you a gift. While I know this is cliche and you have heard it a million times, it really is a powerful question and a perfect starting point. Have you ever done more then read this question? Have you ever truly tried to answer this question? WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU KNEW YOU COULDN'T FAIL?

Therapy Thursday! Thursdays will be a day where I offer ideas on what you can do to alleviate stress and anxiety from your life, and add some relaxation and happiness. Today's suggestion: If yo are encountering a problem and can't seem to find a solution... Walk away! What? Yes, walk away from it for 24-48 hours. The problem will still be there when you get back. When you walk away you give your mind a chance to clear. When you revisit the problem you will have a clear head and a fresh perspective. This will allow you to use your energy to find a solution instead of being filled with worry and anxiety. Walking away temporarily does not mean you are giving up. It means you are allowing yourself some breathing room to better deal with the situation.

Toolbox Tuesday! On Tuesdays I will share tools and ideas with you to help you reach your goals or make changes in your life that may be challenging. Today's tip: START SMALL! More often then not people who try to make positive changes in their life have an all or nothing approach. Very few, myself included, succeed this way. If they did there would be a lot more people who succeeded with their New Year resolutions. When planning to make a change, choose three or less behavior changes and focus on them for 21 days. You will have an easier time following your goals and therefor be encouraged by your success!

MONDAY! Mondays can be rough so each Monday I will post something that I hope will inspire you and take the edge off of getting back to the grind. Let me start with how I view Mondays... I see it as a weekly "New Years Day." A fresh start to begin again or to celebrate and reaffirm the success you already have. This particular Monday is a fresh start to an old project. It's is great to be back writing and blogging again.
