Talking..No, I Mean LISTENING...to Children!


This is for anyone who works with children...whether your own children or if you come along side parents who are looking for help in dealing with their children!

This thought came to me over the weekend when I was with my entire family, all in one spot!!  Three children, their spouses and my seven sweet grandchildren.  We were in Jacksonville, FL to participate in the'26.2 Run With Donna - Finish Cancer' Marathon.  

There was theFun Run, 5K, 13.1 mile 1/2 Marathon, 26.2 mile Full Marathon, and 26.

2014 Time for a fresh start??

At the beginning of a New Year, we look for that line drawn in the sand, in the snow...or on the pavement!  A line that signifies a starting point, a new beginning, a fresh start. 

We want so badly to make changes in our lives and seem to always need that starting point.  

Want to know a secret?  Whatever month it is, whatever day, whatever time it is; that is the moment to start.  Simply set reasonable short term goals, so when the Finish Line, that seemingly unattainable goal, sneaks up on you, you will have reached it a day at a time.

The Map to Reach Your Goal!

Look at the Big Picture!!...how many times have you heard that?  In truth, the big picture is often overwhelming, not easily attainable and the source of many "I can't do it, I give up" decisions.  Am I right!?!
 
And stop and think; if you are so focused on that one goal, you miss out on all the incredible opportunities that pop up around you every single day! 
 
You have what it takes. Now, tie up loose ends...build solid, positive relationships, be very diligent about your finances, don't neglect your education/training.

Welcome to Life Coaching

Welcome to Life Coaching...let me know how I can help you.  Are you having trouble communicating?  Does everyone take what you are saying the wrong way?  Often we are saying the right thing, just not saying it in the right way and the message is lost in translation.  We can work together on your presentation ... the body language, facial expression, tone of voice...you get it?  It really isn't that difficult to become a good communicator.  It is worth the effort and You can do it!

Setting Mini-Goals...and Reaching Them!

So, it is January 22 already!  Have you broken that resolution that seemed so attainable twenty-two days ago!?  We reach for such lofty goals, that we set ourselves up for failure at the very start. 
 
So, instead of "I will go on a diet for 6 months", (and you are off the diet in 6 days!), why not set a mini-goal?  "I can make a commitment to stay on a sensible, nutritional weight loss plan for...a month."  Nothing crazy, just yummy, sensible, nutritious food and watch the portions, portions, portions!
