Hello Dear Friends,
As we move closer to 2020, many of us are looking back at 2019 and the ending of a decade. Planning for the future is important, but so is looking back on the journey. All your hard work has put you in a better place than when this year began. Be thankful and give yourself the credit you deserve.
But now with the holidays, many of you are forced to make uncomfortable decisions as boundaries are tested. While you might feel obligated to take part in family gatherings or attend parties, remember you are allowed to simply say no. This may mean breaking family traditions or routines, but your peace of mind is worth so much more.
You have worked hard to gain ground and put these boundaries in place. I encourage you to stand tall now and not entertain drama or negative energy of any kind this holiday season. While some situations will test your patience and resolve, stand your ground and keep firm on what you allow into your life. Don't overreact, but also don't give in.
Your attention and focus are your greatest powers. Use them wisely and don't allow yourself to be drawn into unnecessary drama or anything that doesn't add value to your life. Protect your energy and you will have a much more pleasant holiday experience and start 2020 from a calmer, more relaxed point-of-view.
If you need support, I'm here. Together we can define these boundaries and build your best, blissful life.

Trying to heal after a leaving a narcissist relationship?
Healing begins when you change the narrative… change the story that is floating in your head and you change everything!
Don’t believe that you are doomed to years of suffering because you are not… and I don’t care what response you get from the “narcissist experts” you follow online. You can get over this and quicker than you may think, but you need to commit to your own healing. NOW!
If you put as much thought and effort into yourself as you do your ex, think about how far you can get? Your ex doesn’t deserve your love, care or attention… you do.
When you are ready to heal and be done with this trauma for good, I’m here for you.
I know you have heard this before, but I’m gong to say it again; it is important that you avoid toxic people. I know you want to help everyone and you often see the best in people, but this is a serious warning. It’s not your job to fix, mend or heal everyone that crosses your path. You must set clear boundaries or these people will steal your energy, mess with your mental health and destroy your dreams.
In my new Empowered Empath course we take a long look at these types of people, set clear boundaries and work on healing the hurt toxic people have inflicted. If you would like to be on the waiting list for this massive course, sign up here. You can also read more about the course here.
This is something I have noticed as an Empath. Have you encountered this too?
Some people will hold a grudge, against you for being sensitive and for showing compassion. Some people will be offended that you are not reacting the way they think you should and be very vocal in telling you how wrong you are.
Do they have a reason to feel like they must have been wronged by your compassion? No, but when people are broken everything can be a trigger, even compassion. This really isn't about you, it's more about the other persons view of the world and they're healing journey. It may be difficult, but don't take it personally.
At the end of the day, your best course of action is to let their grudge go. Don’t let this change who you are or how you express yourself in the world.
Life is about balance. We need balance in order to live a happy and healthy life. We need balance in our work life and home life, but when our lives get off track we no longer feel like we are moving forward. We stop doing things that make us happy, we neglect our needs, stop eating healthy and most things become chores instead of adventures. When we are in balance everything flows, life is easier and we are overall happier.
To help you get back on the right track here are five ways to introduce more balance into your life and get things going in the right direction.
When we don’t prioritize important things slip through the cracks and don’t get done.
Prioritizing and scheduling can be a great practice to start introducing more of a sense of balance to your life. We all have busy lives and long, never-ending to do lists. The only way to get everything done and find balance in our lives is by prioritizing what needs to be done when and scheduling our days.
The tricky part to this is deciding just what is important; in some cases, your work may take priority, but in others family or friends may take priority over your work on your to-do list. Only you can decide what is really important and what should be a priority in your schedule.
2) Set Goals
I talk about this all the time. Without a clear goal in mind we can easily get off track. Setting both long-term and short-term goals can prove to be incredibly helpful in achieving a balance in your life. It helps you keep your sights on what you want and what is truly important for you, avoiding all those shiny opportunities that seem great at the time but that actually only lead you further from your dreams. The short-term goals help you to track your progress as you work to achieve your long-term goals, and help you stay on track.
3) Set Your Schedule and Then Review It
Often we don’t know what will really work for us until we try. As an example lets say you decide you want to work longer hours Monday through Thursday to take off every Friday to spend time with your family. This sounds ideal, but it may not really be practical. Working longer plus the committing time may not leave you with enough time to get your household chores done or be home for homework. So if you do try a schedule and it doesn't work, don’t give up. Revise it. Could it be more feasible to take every other Friday off? Building they extra hours over a two week period instead of one? Tweak and revise your schedule until you find something that works with your life.
4) Find an Accountability Buddy
An accountability buddy is someone that holds you accountable for the goals you have made, the priorities you set, and the things you have said you wanted to do and accomplish. It ís easier to find balance and stick to your goals and schedule when you have someone to be accountable to that is also accountable to you.
Your relationship with your accountability buddy should be interactive and mutual or you could work with a coach.(like me). To help you stay on track and accountable.
5) Set Attainable Goals
For example, you can make your goal to win a Nobel prize in literature, or you can make it to be paid to writer. The latter is a more achievable goal that focuses on the process and journey more than the achievement or prize at the end. Anything is possible if you want it badly enough, but are you ready to make that level of commitment? If not then work on smaller, attainable goals now and you can always revise your long term goals later.
6) Remember It’s a Process
Life isn’t just about what you achieve, its about the journey. In order to achieve a proper balance, and get back on track you need to always keep in mind that this could be a constant struggle, at least until you learn the signals your are getting of course.
Everyone needs balance in order to live a happy and healthy life. Finding the proper balance in your life can be difficult, but it not impossible. Once you get back on track you will find it is well worth the effort.
I hope this article has helped to point you on the right path, towards a healthy balance in your life.
