Recently I’ve had some challenging days and I’m not sure why. I’ve felt out of sorts and kind of disconnected from things in general. When I made the decision to share myself with the world, I also committed to sharing my reality and truth with you.
I don’t know about you, but I get sick and tired of reading stuff where the writer (regardless of the her profession) tells me repeatedly how wonderful everything is in her life and that every day is rosy! I say that’s a bunch of crap unless the writer isn’t human.
Some days – just showing up and sludging through your day is HARD. Some days we have no answers. Some days the bank account is off by more than you ever dreamed possible. (Today was one of those days for me. I was always bad at math.) Some days you get bad news that you’re totally unprepared for, and other days…someone you thought was your friend – turns out to be a fraud. Some days family stuff blows up for no apparent reason. There’s always something, and I know I’m not the only one who has these types days.
I used to step into full blown control mode when I was feeling out of sorts, but these days on those days – I look up. I seek help from above. I try my hardest to relinquish control, and I struggle with that because it’s been my default position for a very long time. It doesn’t feel comfortable, but one of the principles behind being a Lionhearted Woman is that…

I’m determined to be all that I say I am…to be all that I KNOW I am…to be all that others believe I am; but like everyone I know…I do battle with that horrible chatter in my brain and some days it’s easier to shut it up than other days.
The difference for me now vs. a few years ago is that I invested in myself because as you know, I got tired of just being fine. So I sought the answers, put in the time…the energy…the dedication and the pain to work through the process to get to the other side. Yes…I said PAIN, because growth is often painful. It’s so easy for us to stay put in our little safe place even if it doesn’t serve us.
What I’ve learned is that you have to get OUT OF THE BOAT – the safety boat if you ever want to truly live a life that lights you up. But you have to know what to do and you have to be supported as you slowly start to leave your boat. I am never going to tell you that my life is perfect or that I don’t struggle, because I’m not going to be anything but authentic with you…but here’s the thing…
My life is infinitely better now that I KNOW what to do…HOW to do it and how to KEEP doing it than it was when I was safe in my boat and repeating the same processes over and over again.
Becoming a Lionhearted Woman is a process and it doesn’t happen overnight, but there is nothing more joyful than to watch a woman discover her own fabulousness. This is what one of my clients had to say…
“I think the best thing I ever did for myself was to click on your site. It’s difficult to see what’s going on when you are face down in it and I had kind of lost myself to my circumstances. Thank you for listening and helping me “see the “me” I’ve always wanted to become. My entire life I have thought there has to be more to it than this, but found myself turning in circles until now.”
