Have you ever gotton lost and start to panic?
This being lost may be physically where you don't know how to get home again, or it may be lost in your life, feeling unsure of where to go to next, or how to move forward.
The natural tendency when this happens is to run faster, circle around, get flustered as you try and find your way.
Not only are you physically racing around but your mind is also racing along at a mile a minute.
Everything speeds up in a panic to try and get you to back to something familiar.
What can you do when this happens?
STOP, BREATHE, and REGROUP

How often do you outline the things you need to change in your life order to feel better? The truth is, we only have this moment in time to do anything. We can plan for the future - in this moment. However, in this moment, we can only do what we can do NOW.

Getting back to the real world after being on vacation can be a rude awakening. As I travelled back from Maui with it's sun, sand and surf, I felt an incredible sense of gratitude for all that I have in my life. Living in the moment was easy to do as I took in my last day of Paradise with my family. I did not keep notes for my blog as I decided to let let days 3 and 4 go unrecorded. As a brief summary, they were amazing. We had a beautiful last day, travelled the island to take in some different sites on our way to the airport.
Living in the Moment is more challenging to do in the real

What does your ideal life look like? If you were to carry on living your life like you are today, will you feel fulfilled and satisfied in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years? What is getting in the way of you living the life you want? What is your relationship like with yourself? These are some of the questions that I ask my clients when they come in and see me. Many people feel dissatisfied with their life as they know it, yet feel powerless at changing it.
The exercise of looking at how you are currently living your life and how disconnected you are from what you want can be quite eye opening.

Our body is the most amazing vehicle we have to tune into the present moment. Our body is with us at all times, yet many of us do not spend any time in relationship with our bodies.
How does our body speak to us? We feel sensations of hunger, thirst, tiredness, etc. We feel emotions of anger, sadness, frustration and joy. We have voices that speak to us telling us what we should and should not do and we have our inner voice that tries to be heard.

How many of you know what it means to be grounded? What does it look like for you?

This past weekend, we attended the funeral for a colleague and friend of my husband. I had met him a couple of times over the years and I knew his wife casually. It was a sad day. He left behind a wife and two young children as well as a whole community of family and friends. As I sat in the church listening to the words spoken about this man, I was reminded of Stephen Covey’s “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” when he suggests “we begin with the end in mind”. What legacy do you want to leave behind? This man had lived life fully, he played hard, worked hard and loved his family deeply which was evident in all of the tributes paid to him in that full church. I imagine he would be pleased with how he was remembered.
