Are You Sleep Walking Through Your Life?Are You Sleep Walking Through Your Life?

It’s such a simple question.  Your initial reaction may have been an offended “NO!”  But too often, we get caught up in the daily busyness of life that we don’t look that far ahead.  This is why those milestone birthdays – 30, 40, 50, 60 – can be a struggle.  “Where did the time go?  How did I get to be this old?”  This is why we get so excited about New Year’s Day!  It’s a fresh start – we get to hit the re-set button!  Even though we know we’re probably not going to do anything different.  Why?It’s such a simple question.  Your initial reaction may have been an offended “NO!”  But too often, we get caught up in the daily busyness of life that we don’t look that far ahead.  This is why those milestone birthdays – 30, 40, 50, 60 – can be a struggle.  “Where did the time go?  How did I get to be this old?”  This is why we get so excited about New Year’s Day!  It’s a fresh start – we get to hit the re-set button!  Even though we know we’re probably not going to do anything different.  Why?

How to Make A Moment Last Forever

“I want to make this moment last forever”. We’ve all said that. And some of us can  often feel joy long after a celebration. Others take that moment and allow the feeling to pass by quickly.

So, if we do this on a subconscious level,  How can we make a moment last forever on a conscious level?“I want to make this moment last forever”. We’ve all said that.

Life & Work Balance – Myth or Reality?

“Is it even possible to achieve life & work balance?” bemoaned a client of mine a few months ago.  She was running herself ragged trying to juggle about 15 plates at once.  She’d hit a wall and wasn’t even sure where to go from here.  She was exhausted, short-tempered with just about everyone she cared about, doing a rotten job at work and anxious a lot of the time.  Best of all…She was done living like this and ready to make a change!  Music to my ears!! :)  This is what I love to do!
