At the start of the New Year, we often make goals about our career, health, or relationships. Unfortunately by the end of January, too many of us give up on those goals. Not because we’re lazy or we didn’t really want the things, it’s because we don’t believe we can actually have them.
We often blame it on not enough time or discipline, when in reality it’s neither of these things. The truth is we don’t actually believe we can create what we want.
It’s okay not to believe in yourself (at least some of the time).
I spent a lot of time in the last two years wishing my life could go back to normal. Some days I longed for normal so badly that it made me cry.

They’ve also led to great people and experiences that may not have happened had my life [...]
Resistance isn’t always bad, in fact it can teach us crucial things about what isn’t working for us. However, when it gets in the way of allowing us to accept and move forward, it needs to be released.
This came to me when I purposely avoided creating intentions and that word is: release.
When it came to me it seemed perfect. Because I realize in the last year there are a lot of things that I need to release both emotionally and physically.
Everything we hold emotionally affects us physically.
When I say that, people often get nervous and optimistic if you’re holding [...]
I’ve been there too. I spent many years living with IBS andable… it’s hard to try new things when you are fearful about having a flare-up. But you don’t have to limit your life, there is something you can do about it.
In my free e-book, “IBS Manifesto: Creating Less Stress and More Freedom While Living With IBS “, I discuss 5 tools to help you start living a more pleasurable life again. It’s not about a quick fix; it’s a lifestyle change.
Amazing what coaching can actually do to the mind. I described the invigorating feeling to my husband takes away the pressure of instant gratification.

Laura’s approach to identifying and enjoy my current life.
Laura was a gift from my daughter, literally. She thought the session would help me get through the barrage of interviews I had recently been on, but not getting the job. After years of therapy, books…
I admit that I was apprehensive to work with a coach at first, but once we got started that apprehension went right away. I am reminded with every session as to how intuitive, genuine, and is like a l…
