Peaceful Mind Peaceful Life

Waiting for an apology is like allowing someone to hold you hostage.
“Don’t expect the person that hurt you to be the person that saves you.”
Remember that forgiveness is something that you do for you, not for the other person. And unless something really significant has changed, forgiveness does not mean that you have to let someone who has harmed you back into your life. ~xoxo Michelle & Barb

Even The Strongest Person Gets Tired Of Being Strong And Needs A Break

This is one of the reasons why I wrote Genius Breaks...

Even the strongest person can get exhausted. Even the bravest and the most resilient ones can get tired of taking care of themselves and of everyone else. Even they can get tired of the independent life they are choosing to live, of all the bills they need to pay, of all the work they need to do. Th...

Ahhh the memories...🍭
There was a time that I only dreamed about traveling around the world...🌍
And I had no idea how to get started as an author or as a speaker...🤷‍♀️
and I knew that sharing my message online made sense but I didn't know how to create and sell online courses....👩‍🎨
so I set out to figure it all out myself...👩‍💻👩‍💻👩‍💻
I will share the Bad news first:
It took me five years to figure it all out because I had no one to mentor me....🤷‍♀️🥺
But here is the Great News 💥
You dont have to take that long. And you don't have to do it alone...
Because....
(drum roll starting here)
I am starting a small group coaching experience on February 1 of this year....🤓🥳
we are going to get your book, online course, and keynote done within the next 11 months...
so that by this time next year you will have your clear, concise and captivating message out there 🌍
Because lets face it...
we both know there's so much value in going after your dream with the support of others who are not afraid to pursue their dreams too...
so my question then for you is this...
Are you ready to make 2020 the year that you finally do this?
I hope so... because your audience is waiting!
And happy new year and decade 🙂

Suicide Awareness / Prevention
07/18/2019

Suicide Awareness / Prevention

The day my father died, I was at the grocery store buying bananas.

I remember thinking to myself, “This is insane. Your dad just died. Why the hell are you buying bananas?”

But we needed bananas. We’d be waking up for breakfast tomorrow morning, and there wouldn’t be any bananas—so there I was.

And lots of other stuff still needed doing too, so over the coming days I would navigate parking lots, wait in restaurant lines, and sit on park benches; pushing back tears, fighting to stay upright, and in general always being seconds from a total, blubbering, room-clearing freak out.

I wanted to wear a sign that said: I JUST LOST MY DAD. PLEASE GO EASY.

Unless anyone passing by looked deeply into my bloodshot eyes or noticed the occasional break in my voice and thought enough to ask, it’s not like they’d have known what’s happening inside me or around me. They wouldn’t have had any idea of the gaping sinkhole that had just opened up and swallowed the normal life of the guy next to them in the produce section.

And while I didn’t want to physically wear my actual circumstances on my chest, it probably would have caused people around me to give me space or speak softer or move more carefully—and it might have made the impossible, almost bearable.

Everyone around you; the people you share the grocery store line with, pass in traffic, sit next to at work, encounter on social media, and see across the kitchen table—they’re all experiencing the collateral damage of living. They are all grieving someone, missing someone, worried about someone. Their marriages are crumbling or their mortgage payment is late or they’re waiting on their child’s test results, or they’re getting bananas five years after a death and still pushing back tears because the loss feels as real as it did that first day.

Every single human being you pass by today is fighting to find peace and to push back fear; to get through their daily tasks without breaking down in front of the bananas or in the carpool line or at the post office.

Maybe they aren’t mourning the sudden, tragic passing of a parent, but wounded, exhausted, pain-ravaged people are everywhere, everyday stumbling all around us—and yet most of the time we’re fairly oblivious to them:

Parents whose children are terminally ill.
Couples in the middle of divorce.
People grieving loss of loved ones and relationships.
Kids being bullied at school.
Teenagers who want to end their lives.
People marking the anniversary of a death.
Parents worried about their depressed teenager.
Spouses whose partners are deployed in combat.
Families with no idea how to keep the lights on.
Single parents with little help and little sleep.

Everyone is grieving and worried and fearful, and yet none of them wear the signs, none of them have labels, and none of them come with written warnings reading, I’M STRUGGLING. BE NICE TO ME.

And since they don’t, it’s up to you and me to look more closely and more deeply at everyone around us: at work or at the gas station or in the produce section, and to never assume they aren’t all just hanging by a thread. Because most people are hanging by a thread—and our simple kindness can be that thread.

We need to remind ourselves just how hard the hidden stories around us might be, and to approach each person as a delicate, breakable, invaluable treasure—and to handle them with care.

As you make your way through the world today, people won’t be wearing signs to announce their mourning or to alert you to the attrition or to broadcast how terrified they are—but if you look with the right eyes, you’ll see the signs.

There are grieving people all around you.

Go easy.
