FRESH JUICE Because Life is Juicy
February 2007 (814) 880-7319

Happy Valentine's Day!

A few weekends ago, I journeyed to Washington, D.C. with my family and friends to march in a peaceful protest against the continuing war in Iraq. I was reminded of the courage it must have taken to march back in 1961 in Montgomery, Alabama for equal rights. And the open-hearted courage it required of all who did so to allow love to be the governing force rather than violence.

It is for this reason that I devote this mid-month issue of Fresh Juice to open-hearted courage. In this month generally focused on romantic love, it is also Black History Month, and a time to consider the role love plays in making significant change. It is an appropriate time to salute African Americans like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks who have stood firmly in their love of justice to create movement in their lives and in so many lives around them.

Whether your cause is the environment, the educational system, or health care, love for those outside of our immediate circle may lead us to answers not previously contemplated. As Dr. King said in his Nobel Peace prize acceptance speech, "man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love."

It inspires me to look within for answers to such difficult issues. I believe it is by following our hearts that new resolutions can begin. In peaceful revolution, Stephanie

    "I believe we can change the world if we start listening to one another again." - Margaret Wheatley

    The call to change. You know the one - it's what you hear from the depths of your soul. It's starts as a faint voice, whispering of lands yet undiscovered. It's the voice perhaps that you've been putting off until you're happier in your job; you have the relationship you want; you're richer; thinner, more patient; more centered; more focused; less stressed... Do any of these reasons sound familiar for postponing the life that you know is yours to live?

    That can all begin to change. Now.

    If you like GROUPS: Receive coaching in a group format with other fabulous women who are learning how to reduce stress, balance work and family, and put self-care at the top of the list without guilt. Ignite the core of who you are, make lifelong friends and have fun!

    Space To Breathe

    Space to Breathe is the monthly section of inquiries 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- discovery.

    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.

    "What are my wants versus my musts?"

    "Where am I uncompromising? Where am I too flexible?"

    If you find questions like these are difficult to answer because of a lack of time or not knowing where to begin, then you may want to consider individual coaching to get to the heart of what matters to you. Make time to discover who you are and your compelling vision of who you are becoming, including the appropriate steps along the way to make it happen!


    Open-Hearted Courage
    Whole Life Coach image

    "The choices you make in life ultimately determine your destiny."- Rosa Parks

    What did Rosa Parks say was her determining factor in staying seated that fateful day in December on that bus in Alabama? SHE WAS TIRED! Not tired from the day, but tired of complying with that which she knew in her bones was wrong; tired of not being treated as an equal.

    What are you tired of? What rules, self-imposed or otherwise, are you playing by day after day and feeling resentful because of it?

    Rosa Parks told her truth. Her "small" step started a big movement, a big revolution.

    Where are you able to speak your truth in your life? It is my hope that it is an integral part of your everyday. If it is not yet that, I am passionate about hearing your truth, and in having you live that truth in your life. Even if you are unsure of your truth, you know it when you're not following your own rules.

    Are you ready to speak your truth? Who knows what revolution your voice will begin! I offer free complimentary sample sessions in order for you to make an informed decision. It's time for fulfilled individuals to make their mark on the world.

    "I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality." - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., 1964
