Summer greetings to you!
Ah, can you feel it? It's the rhythmic beat of the
heart of the summer, one of my favorite times of
the year. I find myself settling into the heat, and
allowing it to soften the rules around what is
As I tune into my own summer rhythm, I
am able to sink more deeply into what is most
important to me in my life. I am struck with the
welcome responsibility of being radically authentic.
And, as a result, I am excited to present this
newsletter to you with the upcoming events in Whole
For those of you who are ready to utilize your own
authenticity to start a peaceful, yet powerful
revolution within, as well as in your community, there
couldn't be a better time to engage than NOW.
|Vote with your Time
"Time is a created thing. To say, "I don't
have time" is like saying, "I don't want to..."
"Where does all my time go?" This is a question I
frequently hear from my clients.
When thinking about your time, reflect on the work
week since it usually comprises the majority of our
time. When contemplating your work, does it light
you up, or are you empathetic with the 71% of the
American workforce who admit to feeling unsatisfied
in their current position? What if your work is your
family, and the time you spend creating a nurturing
Take an inventory of your time for one week. Notice
who you are and what you do with your time, to
assess if there are any changes that are just begging
to be made. Look at where you spend the majority of
your waking time and what parts of yourself you
bring to that activity. Does it reflect who you are in
the deepest sense? If not, it may be time to ask
yourself if you are ready for a change.
Spending your time doing what is most important to
you is a vote for fulfillment in your life. No one else
can give that to you. Just as tracking where you
spend your money will alert you to what you value in
your life, time is an equally an important determiner.
Many of my clients discover that by spending time
each morning designing their day makes all the
difference in achieving more of what they value in
their days. What would give you a feeling of
accomplishment or satisfaction if you completed at
the end of the day? For parents, it might be
by simply learning how to embrace the moments
after safely tucking your children into their car seats
to savor the silence at the back of your car before
you enter the driverís seat. As an
executive, perhaps itís as simple as taking your
lunch away from the office, and adding a 10-
minute break into your schedule every 90 minutes to
reconnect with your self and your sanity. Know
that by giving to yourself, you are also giving to
those around you. Whether itís your children,
your partner or boss, they want the WHOLE you, not
the you that is partitioned off in order to do the work
you "should" be doing.
It is up to you! You get to vote for how you choose
to spend your time. Who gets your vote today?

insight and belly laughs. The truth CAN
set you free!

|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. It is
designed to give you a springboard for self-discovery.
Begin with the inquiry, "What's truly
important to me?Ē In other words,
"What is a non-negotiable in my life?Ē
or "What must be present in order for me
to be happy?Ē
Then, you may want to review the
past week and weekend in July and reflect
on how you spent your time. What did you do?
And more importantly, what percentage of your true
self did you bring to those situations? How did these
actions support what you discovered from the inquiry
above that you most value in your life?
Whole Life Programs
