Can you believe it's already December?
With so much to do this month, I would like to only
briefly remind you that we are not called
Go for what brings you the most alive this month,
and give yourself the gift of remembering to focus
on who you want to BE around this busy time so
you are able to DO in a way that is in line with who
you are and what is most important to you.
The gift of sustainability and healing are called for
this year: Stop to consider what a true gift you
are to yourself and to the planet when you dare to
live from your most authentic place.

|Your Own Space
Space to Breathe is the monthly section of
designed to use when journaling, dreaming, or when
you just plain have a minute to yourself. The
intention is to give you a springboard for self-
Putting yourself first means that it may be necessary
to say no to someone else in order to say yes to
yourself. For many of us, there is always something
we feel we could be doing, so that can't be the
deciding factor. We have to start to access our
internal states as the final authority.
"What are the real (versus assumed)
outcomes of taking care of all the others around me
"What are the real (versus assumed)
outcomes of taking care of myself before anyone
Inquiries like these are used in coaching on a regular
basis to get to the truth around what motivates and
really matters to an individual.

Where do you fit into the equation? If
until you get more time, you're going to be
experiencing the same frustration in a year as you
are right now. Each day you "get" time. But
only yours if you take it.
If you're like most people, you give it away to others
on a regular
basis. How about this holiday dishing some out
yourself? What would add life to
your day if you actually did it instead of just thinking
about doing it?
You have all heard the flight attendent tell you that
you can't put on other's oxygen masks without
first attending to your own. So then,
what "inspires" you? Whatever you decide,
make a small gesture
where you put yourself first every day and watch
how it pays off for you and the ones you love.
Take that first step. It's free! You only
have the guilt to lose and everything to gain.
