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

“Never allow anyone or anything to stand in the way of your dreams.”
“I’m all for practicing maximum enthusiasm! Not taking myself too seriously and getting jazzed about the little things truly helps me be a better person. Some of my favorite little things to get excited about are dance parties, bacon egg and cheese biscuits, giving people high fives, funny animal videos on Instagram, woodland creatures in general, and everything Taylor Swift.”
“When in doubt put your #teethout. Smile because it's the easiest thing to do with your mouth”
“Performance is your God-given strength. USE IT! When your not accepted, USE IT. When your dad try’s to talk you out of it. DO IT! When it comes to choosing World History over improv— CHOOSE IMPROV YOUR CRAZYNUT!!!!!”
“Momentum breeds momentum. And it all starts with you showing up – creating success, going to it, not waiting for it to come to you. Dreams are built one day at a time.”
Remember to continue doing well to others, but never forget to be good to yourself. I was in my early 40’s before I began the process of learning to my ‘inner me’.
I firmly believe you can't take massive action towards what you want if you're not prepared and rest is an essential ingredient in preparing to close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

We need to talk about this season, because the hard truth for me and many other people is that it can lead to really emotionally tough times. At least it does for me and this is how I handle that.
