Need a little piece of joy today? I'm about to turn on and turn up a song I can sing and dance too as I make my cup of coffee and get ready for the day. A solo morning dance party is one of the most underrated ways to joy! Now, have you danced it out, and do you have your cup of coffee ready?
Let's jump right into this week's 5 things!
1st) I did a thing! Did you see the article I wrote for The Collection of Us? The article is "Letting go of the Jealous, Fear and Comparision Trap". I'd love to know what you think of it.
2nd) I was reminded of this New York Times Article recently that I love and offers great questions to ask anyone you want to get to know better. "The 36 Questions that Lead to Love".
3rd) More from the New York Times. The article "What's All This About Journaling? One of the most Effective Acts of Self-Care is also, happily, one of the cheapest." This is what I've been saying!
3rd) Do you want to know more about Positive Psychology? You might have heard me talk about the certification that I took. If so you have to listen to this great podcast episode from Tranquility Du Jour that I was interviewed on. Kimberly Wilson is a HUGE Shero of mine and it was an honor to get to be a guest on her podcast talking about something I really loved learning about.
4th) This week I got to attend a New Moon Ceremony with Christina Brown at moon-bird pottery. These moon ceremonies are beautiful. You might like them too.
5th) Quote I'm pondering "Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you can not see. You choose." Bob Proctor
“Knowing my children are watching me. I always tell them that can’t is a bad word and once you say it your brain shuts down. This means I can’t say can’t.”
Like a fantastic glass of wine with a delicious meal, a year ahead spread pairs perfectly with a Power Hour coaching session. Looking at a year ahead spread during a power hour gives you a different lens to talk about where you are and where you want to be. It’s a powerful game changer.
“there is no other way to truly get what you want in life than to earn it. I would tell myself that I am good enough just the way I am, I don’t have to be anyone or anything else in order to matter.”
“It is always important to remember why you are doing the work you are doing.
The same is true in life: It is KEY to identify what you want before you begin taking steps to get there.”
“Balance is a good thing, and harder to achieve than it seems like it should be! Be disciplined and do your best, but not to the point of isolating yourself from the world or people around you. In the end, it’s your experiences and the people you meet that will impact you more…”
Coming home from Yoga on a cold February day this year I’d just pulled into my neighborhood in the middle of the city of Greensboro when a fox crossed my path. I felt certain it was an omen and looked up the meaning of seeing a fox cross your path.
“I’m Kennedy Briane Currie, born and raised in Greensboro, NC, a believer, aspiring relationship coach, and founder of Herelationship–the networking platform devoted to early-career women looking to grow and incorporate faith into their personal and professional relationships.”
“if I had such an opportunity to pass on wisdom, I’d tell her to stop worrying so much about hurting other people’s feelings and to be true to herself above all else”
“To be yourself and own it with fearless confidence! Never listen to what that kid on the bus had to say to you and never force yourself to do something you never wanted to.”
Trust the process. Every day since those days had a purpose, a deeper meaning. Everything is a stepping stone. Something I still have to remind myself daily.
