“Most men and women  lead lives of quiet desperation

and go to the grave with the song still in them.”-

Henry David Thoreau

There are many men and women who live their lives, surviving, hoping that the surviving, the working and striving will lead them to TRUE HAPPINESS. 

I think that is WHAT MOST PEOPLE WANT. True Happiness.

In the last few weeks, I have personally attested to feeling OVERWHELMED, INSECURE, UNABLE, SHORT of EXPECTATIONS of OTHERS, and MOSTLY PRESSURE FROM SELF. Today, I ask myself, where does this PRESSURE come from?

The pressure to be enough, to achieve, to strive for the goals that I think will make me happy, give me more freedom. Perhaps most of us are following a SCRIPT that we did not write. Perhaps a lot of us are feeling pressures to be ENOUGH for others, for others to love us….because maybe if we achieve enough, we’ll be enough for others to love.

I’m here to tell you that life begins TODAY. 

Not tomorrow, not when things go the way you desire, not when you achieve your dreams or goals- but life, joy, and love BEGINS TODAY. 

Most people live their lives busy, running around without TRULY examining WHY they do what they do. 

Why? Why are you doing what you’re doing?

I remember one day, my friend asked me “what are you trying to prove?” Yes, what was I trying to prove?

That I was worth loving.

I’m sure you might feel the same, sometimes, a lot of times. Don’t wait until you are 65 to be loved, to feel love, to know your are worth loving. Don’t wait until you are financially successful, with houses, cars, accumulated THINGS to realize…..what truly matters and what you are TRULY feeling.

Worth does not come from how much you have accomplished, worth comes from who you are.

I believe we are all worthy from the womb. 

Start to live. I beg you, START TO LIVE. 

It Might Not Look Like It, But Choosing My Dreams Was Scary

I went to a networking event and met a photographer….spontaneous photos!

The other day, I was speaking to another woman entrepreneur and was so shocked when she said “I was so intimidated by you, you look so up there!”

I was like ….WHAT?

Are you kidding me!!! It almost cracks me up when I hear that, it’s also encouraging to know that I may appear successful, but just like YOU- I have my fears and discouragements.

When I first started teaching Mandarin, I was intimidated. What if my students wanted to know words I didn’t already know? Mandarin has thousands of characters.

I learned to be humble and to show what I didn’t know, but to fully do the research for my students.

When I first started coaching, was I intimidated? Yes, I had picked up this book about coaching. The author suggested that I give free sessions, to just JUMP INTO COLD WATER and PRACTICE. 

My fears? I didn’t have the certification, the education for “coaching” (whatever that meant). I didn’t really know how. I started researching and learn from the best- Tony Robbins, Jonathan Mead, Ali Brown, Oprah, Carnegie, Marie Forleo, you get the idea. I borrowed books from libraries and listened to hundred of seminars and webinars. HUNDREDS. Yes, no kidding. I read a lot, I was definitely NOT LAZY.

Did this all happen overnight?

Nope, but I did think about it for years. I wasted energy just THINKING, but letting the fears take over my mind.

All I had to do was just DO ONE THING, TAKE ONE STEP. 

Even if that one thing fails….you try ANOTHER THING.

That’s how I got THIS far. I looked the lion in the EYE and TACKLED IT HEAD ON, OR MORE LIKE, I RODE THE LION. What did I do? I offered FREE Sessions, typed up analytical steps that I would take my clients through and incorporate every inch of my soul, wisdom, experience and spiritual healing powers. That’s why I know my coaching sessions are effective, because I have been through it myself in my life. 

Live boldly EVERYDAY and DO 1 SCARY THING today.
