The seeds you sow will grow

Have you ever heard the saying: the seeds you sow, grow? Or Tony Robbins’ version “energy flows where your focus goes?”

While some people may think all this energy talk is a bit woo-woo, I believe in it whole-heartedly.

It’s why I practice gratitude.

In my experience the more I focus on the things that light me up — really acknowledge them and feel grateful for them — the more they expand and grow.

Into something more beautiful than I could imagine.

Moving through my fear

For over a year now I’ve had a burning desire to post videos on social media. I’ve always enjoyed being in front of an audience, so it’s no big surprise.

But what is surprising (at least to me) is that I wasn’t making it happen.

No matter how much I wanted to, I just couldn’t take any action.

I felt frustrated and stuck.

I was paralyzed with fear. Of putting myself out there.

Every time I got close to posting something I’d think: “don’t be ridiculous, who the heck is going to watch you?”

Follow your inner “ding”

Over the past few months I’ve been wrestling with the question of “who am I?”

I suppose this shouldn’t surprise me. I’ve struggled with this question many times before. And even wrote a blog about it awhile back called: Am I this? Or am I that?

So just when I thought I’d made peace with it…I realized I hadn’t.

I was back in my old black and white thinking.

Trying to define myself as either one thing or another.

Are you a bookkeeper or a coach? Come on, which is it, Kerry?!

The reality is I’m both.

Clarity comes in its own time

I’ll admit it. I’m not a very patient person at times. In my defense, I come by it honestly. It’s in my Scottish no-nonsense genes.

So a few weeks ago, when I struggled to get clear on my next steps in business (and in life) I was feeling pretty aggravated. 

I kept thinking…

Come on clarity, hurry up! Show me what’s next.

But clarity was not listening.

And that really annoyed me.

Because I’m usually fairly intuitive. And as long as I’m paying attention, my inner GPS usually guides me quickly to my next right step. 

So having to wait for my intuition to speak up was kind of new for me. Feeling like I was suddenly out of touch with it altogether was a whole new ball game.

I felt stuck.

Finding little hits of joy

Ever struggled with the winter blues?

And felt like the long, dark days were closing in on you?

If so, you’re not alone.

I live in Vancouver, and while we don’t get a lot of snow in the winter, we do get our fair share of cold, grey, rainy days.

Every January or February I get hit by the winter doldrums. And my mood begins to feel as grey as our weather.

I want to climb under a big, warm comforter. And stay there.

Forever.

The truth will set you free

The other week I had an epiphany.

It was time for me to tell the truth. The real truth.

I’d been holding onto something that I needed to share. For the sake of my own sanity. And my health.

It’s ironic really.

As a Life Coach it’s the last thing I’d recommend anyone do: hold onto a secret. Especially one that’s slowly eating away at you.

Like all secrets tend to do. Just as mine had been doing.
