What You Can Do Today and Every Day

by Apr 23, 2017Uncategorized0 comments

Do you always focus on what you CAN do, or do you get caught up on all the things you can’t do?

When people find out I live with chronic illness, they often exclaim, “But you do so much!” Yes, I do a lot. Yet I’m conscious to not run myself into the ground doing. I can’t, I don’t have the energy or excellent health for that.

So how do I achieve so much despite my health challenges?

Every day I concentrate on what I CAN do.

In times past, I’ve spent too much time concentrating on what I can’t do. That serves nobody.

When I focus on all the things I can’t do, it’s a long, frustrating and depressing list, leaving me in a state that lacks self-compassion or forgiveness. I get stuck.

I decided I can no longer live my life that way. It is not okay to be a victim to my illness and continuously beat myself up about all the things I can’t do. Making the commitment to focus on what I CAN do every day, even if some days that isn’t very much changed my life. It can change yours too.

Yoga today? Nope, but I CAN manage some light stretching.

Is dinner going to be cooked by me tonight? Nope, but I CAN sit down and chop a salad.

Am I going to write that chapter of my book today? No, but I CAN plan out a blog post.

You can do it

When you start to shift your mindset, you’ll eventually stop noticing what you can’t do and automatically focus your day on what you CAN do. Soon, you’ll find yourself moving forward, no longer stuck.

AND, you’ll be surprised by how much more energy you have, despite doing more.

So, what CAN you do today? Have a go at switching up your list of can’ts to cans—what do you come up with?

 

All of my love,

I hereby invite you to Rediscover YOU.

I know it feels a bit odd to reach out to someone you've only "met" online, but I need to speak to you and have a real-time face to face (over video chat) if I'm to support you. I promise it'll be a fun, inspiring and enlightening experience you won't regret.

So, please click the button below, fill out the short form that pops up to the best of your ability (perfection not required), and I'll be in touch to arrange a conversation.

Our initial conversation will be a full on coaching experience. I'm not into ten minute "discovery calls", because what on earth can you discover in ten minutes? Not enough in my opinion.

My call with you will be at least 90 minutes and during that time we'll really dig into what it is you're wanting to create for yourself. That 90 minutes (which are completely free, as in no cost, zero dollars/pounds or whatever currency you use) might be enough to get you started. In which case, you'll leave our call with everything you need right now, feeling invigorated and ready, and I'll leave it knowing I've fulfilled my personal commitment to help as many women as possible. 

If, after that conversation, ongoing coaching feels like something you want, then we can discuss that and go from there, but I'm not going to sell that to you. I'm not interested in convincing people to work with me, so we'll only discuss that if you ask. No one NEEDS coaching, it's an optional collaboration that you get to choose into, if you want to. If you do, then we can certainly discuss what that might look like moving forward. 

You just need to take one small step - click the button below. Don't be scared, you've got this and deserve it! 

I can't wait to meet you. 

With all of my love,
