Context is everything. If we believe life should be LESS stressful, we think something is wrong with us, or our job, or our partner, or other areas of life. But that’s just not the case. LIFE HAS STRESS. Tapping into the value or meaning—why the stressful situation is important to us is key.

Reactive people operate on impulse, letting situations and circumstances control them. Proactive people operate with intention, taking responsibility to take action based on their values. “Suffering ends where meaning begins.” Learning to respond in proactive ways to our stress is the determinant of whether we grow or wither—literally (physically, mentally, emotionally, relationally).

When we believe stress is healthy, we change the practical impact it has on our body. Why is this? Magic. Well, sort of. It’s the inextricable link between mind and body…and that our beliefs shape how we engage in life, and thus how our body responds to life’s demands.

Always an honor to be invited to the Deloitte Entrepreneur Summit! This year the subject I discussed was women in the workforce. Let’s keep the conversation going on creating gender equity and increased diversity in historically non-diverse career fields. It begins with women supporting women! Big thanks to Jamie and Ashton for inviting me back and to panelists, Jessica, Wendy, Lisa, and Gretchen.

Anxiety, worry, fear. By any name this emotion can hijack our brain and leave us feeling helplessly out of control. Next time you’re feeling a fear spiral, use some of these tips I offered in Heath magazine to help calm your nerves!

11/23/2021

I hear so much rhetoric around being “fearless.” I say F that. Fear is an important emotion—just as all emotions are important. Fear shows us our edge, the areas where we can stretch end grow ourselves—and in doing so, expand our horizons! So don’t aim to be fearless, keep your eyes open for places where fears arise and get to work. If you cannot afford a great therapist, find some literature or research, or get exposure to the things you fear, to facilitate your expansion.

Sometimes I wonder if having three dogs is what helps me remain so resilient and healthy in the face of life’s adversities…
Did you know that petting your dog boosts the hormone oxytocin—which acts as a neurotransmitter in your brain, leaving you feeling relaxed and connected. Oxytocin combats stress by reducing cortisol and blood pressure and promotes cellular growth and healing. This is the same chemical released between mother and baby during bonding and between lovers when they or**sm. All in all, this is a super dope chemical and you deserve more of it! So go love on your animals ❤️🐶🧡🐱💛🐰💚🐭💙🐷💜

We need 15 minutes of personal time EVERY DAY to have a baseline of health. Sadly, self-care is the first thing to fall off when our plate is full.
:
Self-care is so much more than eating healthy or working out…it’s a commitment to engaging regularly in activities that center you, calm your nervous system, and leave you feeling recharged. Make sure you dig around in your wellness tool-bag today to find just the right self-care tool!

Boundaries can be confusing, especially if we grew up in a family with rigid boundaries or without clear and heathy boundaries. Learning to not only identify your boundaries, but to communicate and uphold them in the face of challenge is often a life long journey. Having appropriate guidance and support can go a long way in expediting comfort with boundaries, as we navigate the balance of heathy boundaries with appropriate flexibility.

Learning to identify a narcissist before their love bombing and abuse cycle lock you into a trauma bond is a huge step in breaking the pattern of choosing narcissistic relationships. If you have a history of codependent narcissistic relationship, you are significantly more likely to continue picking the same (unconsciously), despite your assertion that you will never “do that again.”
:
:
These toxic relational behaviors and distorted constructs of love create twisted confusing schemas in our relational minds. Two factors will keep you from continuing this pattern: Learning to spot the traits of a narcissist and discovering and heal the parts of yourself that seek to be rescued or chosen by the narcissist. This is where practicing self-love and rebuilding self-esteem come into play. Take time to explore your past relationships, determine your wounds and your unmet needs. This will allow you to uncover the unconscious fantasies that drive your relationship selection criteria.

Codependency leaves us feeling trapped. If you often feel like a ping pong ball, moving from guilt to anger as you consider your options in relationships, you likely are dealing with codependent patterns. I often hear people say “I’m very independent, not codependent!” Codependency does not mean you cannot make decisions. What it does indicate is that the needs, happiness, or approval of others carries too ouch weight in your world. This can leave you feeling trapped, unable to take care of your own needs and keep others pleased. Codependency is often rooted in fears of aloneness, or ideas that we won’t be able to keep others around if we disappoint them. Disappointment is a part of relationships, even the healthiest of relationships. Learning to tolerate disappointment is one part of breaking free from codependent dynamics.

Self-compassion work is a great place to start, if you believe you’re operating codependently.

Recovering from narcissistic abuse is a difficult journey. It requires a willingness to open your heart and trust others. This begins with learning to trust yourself—something that has been compromised by duplicitous and deceitful interactions daily. Learning about narcissism and narcissistic abuse is a first step to understanding you are not alone and this mental and emotional trap happens to many. From a place of understanding, it is easier to foster self-compassion and release the shame of narcissistic abuse.
:
:
NARCISSISTS CREATE CHAOS IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS FOR THEIR OWN AMUSEMENT. THEY ENJOY TRIANGULATING AND PITTING PEOPLE AGAINST ONE ANOTHER—ESPECIALLY THOSE THEY “CARE ABOUT.”

THEY NEED TO FEEL IN CONTROL OF OTHER PEOPLE’S LIVES AND WILL GO TO GREAT LENGTHS TO POSITION THEMSELVES AS INDISPOSIBLE… OFTEN THROUGH FINANCIAL, MENTAL OR EMOTIONAL
DEPENDENCY. MEANWHILE, THEY WILL FINANCIALLY, MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY EXPLOIT OTHERS TO THEIR BENEFIT.

If you’ve been subjected to narcissistic abuse, you’re not alone. Seek knowledge and find support for you healing journey.

Narcissists love to fight. It invigorates them and squelches their boredom. The biggest issue when fighting with a narcissist is their lack of honesty and accountability. Because they have neither, they will shift and pivot to keep from reaching resolution. For a narcissist, the fight is not about resolution of any matter, it’s about power—power over you mentally, emotionally, and/or physically. Because narcissists feel empty and worthless at their core, they create drama and chaos in an effort to feel something. In this way, they are energy vampires, manipulating your emotions, preferably creating fear, to solidify a position and experience of power that gives them a distorted sense of value and aliveness.
……..
The best way to win with a narcissist is not to play. Take back your power!

ANSWER: Psychotherapy is helpful for people feeling stuck, uncertain, unhappy, frustrated, lost, confused, concerned, worried, pressured, or overwhelmed. Individual therapy can greatly improve the quality of your life and assist you in reaching personal, professional, and relationship goals. Most people who have entered into therapy have found it beneficial for life transitions or coping with difficult experiences. If you are unsure about entering into therapy, call or email me and we will discuss.

Sometimes you pour your heart and soul into something and it fails to launch as planned. Who can relate?
.
Today, I spent an hour pulling the covers off my first print of books from one year ago. It actually took the printers 1 full year and two wasted orders of boxes full of books before they have me correct copies (and no, they did not refund the mistake). Expensive, frustrating, deflating.
.
Sometimes you gotta roll with the punches when things are not coming together as planned and you’ve done all you can do.
❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Prepping these books for recycling was a reminder of my journey...through my marriage and through the creation of my first book. I learned a lot from both experiences. And both struggles made me a better me. Go ahead...peep my book: Divorcing in Love.
