Get this: It’s not your difficult circumstances, responsibilities, or health issue that’s kicking your butt.
And that’s great news.
Most people whose bottom has just dropped out of their life say things like:
“I used to be a dynamo but I have no clue how to deal with what’s on my plate.”
“I want to continue to be the way I was but life has changed drastically and it’s effecting my work”
“I am sick of people telling me not to stress out or to take care of myself- who has the time?”
“My relationships are strained from my situation.”
“I’m so stressed all the time, I’m not sleeping well (and have chronic headaches).”
“I support friends and family who are dealing with eldercare and illness and I am burning out.”
I get it.
I have lived with chronic pain and Lupus for most of my life (and been a caregiver myself) and I was a powerhouse. I tried everything bu it was not sustainable. It helped for an hour or two, but was not useful enough to really make a difference. There had to be another way.
What I came to was this:
I needed to quit trying to escape and find a new way to live my life. Because the pain or the illness wasn’t going to go away, my life had changed. What I learned was that I had to change the way I related to it. For example, learning how to let go of the judgment, and be with what is. (This may sound like granola B.S., but it’s actually steeped in evidence – and it works.)
So now I work with people who are dealing were dynamos and want to get back to their glory days- when they loved what they did and loved to immerse in life. I train them how to integrate real, useful, practical skills that help anytime, anywhere – at work, in a car, at the doctor, when having a challenging conversation, at the airport, and even at the circus – when I say anywhere, I mean anywhere!
I am here to bust you on:
The fight, the frustration, the wanting things to be different, the putting yourself on the bottom of your list, the waiting for things to improve mindset. I’m here to teach you how to thrive, no matter what is happening. All it takes is a decision: Do you want to live in reaction to your situation, or do you want to take your life back?
Let’s start now and go from Chaos to Calm.
What’s so important about going from Chaos to Calm? Let me give you a mundane example: You are feeling rather tired and mulling along at your own pace. Your partner says something that rubs you the wrong way (it might even be a strange look.) Poof! You become angry and before you know it, you lash out. You were blindsided and did not know what hit you. The spiral begins. You become irritable, your body tightens, and you feel worse than you did before. You need something practical to quickly put on the brakes.
So that’s what calm to chaos looks like, and most of us are experts at that. I want to help you to do the exact opposite.
