{RBB} Quick bit of Inspiration

Quick bit of inspiration for you…

I am doing well on the water front, but I feel like I’m in that place

where I need to push to keep going or I will give up.   don't give up

I am seeing some small physical changes (not feeling as bloated and my face is not as round), however, I needed some real motivation to push past the mouthy midget in my head that is telling me ‘I’m not good enough’ and ‘you might as well give up because this will never work’.

I know that consistent action creates success, so I know in my heart, if I just keep showing up and doing my best, I’ll make this rock; however, try telling that to Little Miss Midget.

Sometimes it’s easier to hear it from someone else, so I found one of my favorite Will Smith motivational videos and I am listening to it daily this week to make sure I stay on track.

I am sharing it with you, because I know you are on a path of change as well and I figured you could probably use some killer motivation too.

I have to say this video is pretty awesome and Will Smith knows what he is talking about!


Leave a quick note below to let me know what you think.

Inspiration and hugs, ,

Theory: My Weight = My Worth = My Money

Challenge: Improving my health will increase my self-worth which will increase my income.

Each month I will implement one new health action and one mental shift into my life and I will track the results to determine if the above theory is accurate.

Either way….I win!!

How Addiction Can Inspire


I have been very angry lately at my life.

No matter how I shift it or arrange it, I seem to be falling back into the same old pattern


Addiction is like that.

If you are living with someone who has an addiction then you know all too well…the feeling of unending struggle and despair that comes with having that person in your life.

The constant trying and worrying and praying and hoping this time is really it. Then to have your hopes dashed again and again and again.

Friends, family and all those who care about you, urge you to walk away…save yourself, but there is something holding you almost calling you to stay. So you do…and then you begin to question your choice; sometimes daily, sometimes hourly, sometimes moment to moment.

As a metaphysical coach, I strive to see everything from multiple perspectives, so I can be sure I am getting the most out of my lessons here on earth.

Several years ago, I read that every relationship is simply a reflection of you…and the closer the relationship is to our heart the deeper it will reflect.

I began to test this theory.

You see, I have been addicted to many things (drugs, alcohol, drama, food) and have been married to an alcoholic for 10 years…I have had much opportunity to practice.

At the end of each day, I began to reflect on the interactions I had and how I felt those interactions went, as well as what I was doing/ thinking/ feeling prior to the interaction occurring.

A pattern began to emerge.

At the times I was feeling positive and loving to myself, my interactions reflected laughter, joy and love. I was left feeling better than before.

When I was not honoring myself, my feelings, my boundaries my interactions reflected this as well. These are the times, people would lie to me, take advantage of me, talk me into things I didn’t like or want.

Basically they were an external picture of how I was treating myself.

True to its meaning, my husband began to reflect the darkest parts of me…parts I had never before dared to admit were in me (my shadow self).

Each time I folded and sacrificed my authentic-ness, he drank and the worse I felt about my sacrifice the longer and worse the drinking spree was.


So, you would think that with this knowledge, my life would be grand right?

I could live each day perfectly, knowing that all I have to do is honor me and everything will come up roses…

As a ‘recovering people pleaser’ and natural ‘caretaker’ I can tell you this is not as simple as 1-2-3.

To honor boundaries…one must learn to build them

To honor feelings and time…learning to say no is like climbing Mount Everest

To value your worth…you first have to learn you have some

My journey has been exhausting and arduous, but worth every moment

While I am still learning to honor me and he is still in the battle of addiction, it is now possible for me to look at my husband with gratitude for having the courage to be my reflection.

He could have made a differnet choice, just as easily as I could have.

The lesson of addiction is not in saving others, it is in saving yourself.

Notice the shift.

Live Love,
