Reality Bites! January Depression/Panic/Regret/Scramble/Drowning

The New Year is Starting Faster Than I Am

It’s January 20th, but I thought it was January 25th already. The Xmas tree is still up, and desperately needs to be put away. I missed the sales on Xmas decoration plastic containers, and now they are sold out at Target. How did this happen? How did I get so behind so soon?

…The More Behind I Get

The financial books were supposed to be updated and ready for taxes this year, the house was supposed to be organized and ready to receive the new and prosperous year, the business plan was supposed to execute flawlessly, blah blah blah… It seems like the key words here are “supposed to be” and I find myself NOT meeting my own expectations. Whoaaaa!!!  😱 😩😪

Yoga, Meditation, and Crack Cocaine

My 5 Steps to Pull it Together

I stop and do what I teach my hard-working, entrepreneur moms, who want it all: a successful thriving business, happy kids, and a hot love life! 

  • Step 1: Breathe
  • Step 2: Tend to your hard-working, stressed out “peasant” woman inside.  Ask her what am I afraid of?  What is the pressure that I am putting on myself?  What do I need to let go, but I am afraid to do it?  Breathe! 💆
  • Step 3:  Give yourself a big reassuring hug: “It’s OK, Everything is OK.  Everything WILL be OK.”  Breathe (yes, again)!
  • Step 4:  Pick ONE thing to focus on and finish.  One small thing is good enough.  Push everything aside.  Just do one thing.  Breathe. 🚀
  • Step 5:  Celebrate and love the heck out of yourself for getting that done.  Yay!!! 🎉

Your turn… Share with me what you do to regroup and keep going. Want further feel good? Check out my upcoming 2-day Hot Life Hot Love event on March 12 & 13, 2016 at The Purple Orchid.
