You can't cross a sea
by merely staring into the water.
Here's the scoop on Rabindrath:
Rabindrath Tagore was born in Calcutta, India to a wealthy family. He started to explore writing poetry at 8 years, and was first published at 16. Tagore was also the very first non-European and the only Indian to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913.
SO- Why do we stare into the water?
When you are ready to take the plunge, make sure you’re setting out on the best possible path...
Do you have the tools, resources and support that YOU need to be successful? Are you prepared to reach your potential?
Where do you start when you’re ready to cross?
Don’t swim against the current, and be wary of treading water for too long. There's no better time to take that first step than right now. The best way to beat the procrastination bug is to do something! Squash inaction with an action!
What if you get tired when you’re half way across the sea? Do you stop swimming?
Growing up at our family cottage, I had a goal of swimming across the lake. I found, over and over, that once I’d make some distance, I’d lose my breath and need to turn back.
Have you ever tried swimming on your back? It can be a great way to catch your breath and take some time to think about what you need to do next. Move fast, try new things and adapt. Don't focus on problems. Find solutions.
Look at the situation differently or try something new to get to the outcome you want. It's there waiting for you...
How do you keep motivated & in motion?
Think of the last time you were in a canoe - the longer, stronger and more consistent strokes you made, the easier it was to continue, as you built momentum.
Your first try is usually not your last. Think in & outside the box. Look at a multitude of solutions. Your goals won't fall into your lap. An optimistic outlook & calm approach attract solutions. Your dreams are at your fingertips.
What's stopping you from living the life you've dreamt of? What are the things that are holding you back from doing the things you enjoyed before life became....so....hectic!
What if I told you I could help?
When I started this new chapter of my life, and began seeking joy & experiences instead of chasing money & climbing the corporate ladder - it took a lot of soul searching. It led me to think about the things I did as a child and the dreams I had growing up. I found that I had lost much of it along the fast-paced 'adulting' path.
Balancing a full time job & being a mom/wife, alongside laundry, cleaning, errands, bills, and everything in between took precedence over the experiences that made me feel like my true self. When people asked me what I like to do in my spare time, I didn't have much to say. I'd stopped doing most of it.
It's all too common that the hopes & dreams we strive for as we grow, fall to the wayside as we move through life.
What can I tell you about the last few months, since I've changed my intention and focus?
The pay off has been HUGE.
My time with my husband and son is much more vibrant and robust. My self care has come a long way, and I'm actually fueling my body with the nourishment I need to slay the day. I don't feel 'under the gun' and suffocated by the constant pressures of corporate life. I drink water. I take my vitamins. I walk instead of hopping in the car. I'm sleeping better. I'm laughing more. I dance to Bruno Mars before bedtime. I sing. I breathe. I'm happy. And guess what - my business is still thriving!
I'm finding my freedom more and more each day. Are you finding yours?
When I changed my course, I felt like I had waited too long. Like it was too late. I'd almost forgotten the person that I once was.
I promise you it's never too late.
Choose YOU today. Choose time with your friends & family. Choose to truly live.
Life is too short to be consumed with the details of the day that provide us no fulfillment. It's time to put yourself first and change your life.

What are you waiting for?
Thank you so much for exploring my website & blog! It's been an exciting few months and I'm ecstatic to be in the business of making dreams come true.
I worked in the fast-paced, hectic, corporate world for most of my career. I was commuting, on-call 24/7, time-starved, underutilized, drained, overwhelmed, and generally speaking - not taking care of myself. When I realized the toll this life had taken on me and my ability to be present with my family, I was afraid it was too late. How was I going to change my life?
How could I possibly have all the things I want...quality experiences with my family & friends, travel, good food, financial viability...without the 'hoity toity' job??!
What I realized, after a few weeks of soul searching was that I could have the very life I'd dreamt of.
It was possible!
But the ticket to this freedom is through helping others. My unique blend of experience has set me up to be a professional "Fairy Godmother", so to speak. There's nothing I can't do or find out how to do.
That's why I started this business. I want to help my friends, family & community avoid the trap I was stuck in. There are 168 hours in a week. What would you do...what COULD you do...if you had even one hour back?
That's where I come in. There's no request too big or small. If you have a need, whether personal or professional, I can collaborate with you on a plan moving forward. Want more time to belly laugh with your kids, spouse, family & friends? Feel the sun on your face? Spend more time working on yourself or your business?
Let's find your freedom. How can I propel you forward?
The purpose of my blog is to engage with this great community, enhance your week with great tips & tricks, and to elevate you to your very best.
