Reassess + Restructure + Recommit

June popsicle.jpg

Happy June! This is one of my favorite times of year because the weather is getting nicer + we get a little reset on the year. If you’re anything like me you love a good reset and an opportunity to fine tune some things. The 6 month mark gives us an opportunity to get really clear on where we’ve been so far and where we want to go with the remainder of 2019.

If you’re feeling a little bit sidelined by the fact that we’re halfway through the year, you’re not alone. This year feels like it’s been full of stops and starts and maybe you’ve experienced some big shifts along the way. No matter how your year has been going for you so far, you get an opportunity to take a little inventory and restructure some things that you want to highlight going forward.

There’s no one way or right way to do this, there’s just the ways that are right for you. However, it’s important to do something so that you can get clear on what you want to experience and what things you want to make priorities in the second half of your year.

Did you make a Vision Board back in January and then put it into the Closet?

Maybe it’s time to pull it out, take a look at it and see if what’s there is still resonating for you. Maybe you’ve accomplished some of your goals for this year (yay!) and you want to remove the images that you’ve checked off your list. Maybe you want to add new things that are more in alignment with where you’d like to go next. Either way, if a vision board is a tool that you enjoy using, make sure you find it a new home; one where you can actually see it every day. No more relegating it to a closet or behind a pile of random stuff.

Are you a List Maker?

I love a good list. Okay list makers, get out that list of things that you wanted to get done this year. Maybe you have several lists for different areas of your life. Get them all out and take a look at what’s been done and what’s still waiting to get moved up. Don’t go into melt down mode if you feel there’s still a lot on your list/s that haven’t been checked off. Take a breath and reprioritize your list. Move things around, remove things if this isn’t the best time to be focused on a particular area. If you want to you can make another list of things that are being put into a secondary priority allowing you to get to them once your most important things for the rest of 2019 are attended to first.

Are you a Quarterly Planning and Pie Charts Person?

Do you love flow charts, color, and lots of at a glace inspiration and planning? Or maybe you love all the software, apps, and bells and whistles to support you in moving forward with your goals or dreams. Get out all the things and check to see if the places and spaces you’re honestly investing your time is lining up with the colors and blocks that you intended to invest in this year. It’s okay if things have gone a bit askew. No problem at all, you can Reassess + Restructure + Recommit to your plan and vision for the next 6 months.

We’re constantly changing + dealing with the day to day stuff. However, having a clear vision for what we truly want to achieve this year is very important. The months will continue to move by but with a clear vision you can make a steady and consistent pathway toward the goals you have for yourself. It’s not too late, you haven’t missed the boat, and Yes, it’s still worth investing in your goals starting right now, today. If you need help, ask for help; don’t let this time slip away from you.

Breathe if you’re feeling overwhelmed. Make a commitment to yourself and the momentum you want to nurture for the rest of the year. You have 6 months to move toward the things that are resonating for you for 2019. Yes, definitely doable. Use this time as an opportunity to Relaunch your excitement, enthusiasm, and energy toward the goals you have for yourself and your _____________.

Focus on 3 things that you can do this week to move forward.
Start today and use this 6 month mark to Reorganize, Reprioritize, and Reenergize yourself and your year.

I’m doing the same thing over here in my little corner of the world and I’m cheering you on as you Rededicate yourself to your year!

Do you feel like you could use some extra support in moving toward your goals? I look forward to working with you and supporting you all along the way! I know you can do this!

With love,
Kristy~ xoxo

Working through Highs + Lows + Feelings of Being Stuck

peonies (2019_01_30 23_54_58 UTC).jpg

I can’t believe it’s already May; can you? I feel like this year has been such a combination of slow, slow quick, quick. (If you ever took ballroom dance and that made you think of dance class, me too.)

I’ve talked to so many people recently whether it’s clients, friends, family, or colleagues who’ve told me they feel like they’re in some kind of holding pattern and it’s been challenging trying to balance that feeling while also staying motivated. If you resonate with this feeling, you’re not alone. In addition to this feeling of waiting there are lots of people going through big changes, big shifts, and big stuff too.

Maybe you find yourself raising your hand for both groups.
Standing in a waiting room + Moving through all the stuff.

Like you and so many people this seems to be the general consensus for folks. I’ve also found myself raising my hand for both groups as of late. So, when life gets into these cycles of big changes and the waiting that comes along with perfect timing; how do we move with the cycles instead of feeling like a wheel is rolling over us?

The truth is that there is no one way to do this and there is no one right way to do this; there are just the ways that are right for you on any particular day. However; I thought that I would share some of my favorites with you in case you could use some extra support as you move through some big shifts right now too.

Change of Scenery

Sometimes simply getting outside and away from your home or office to take a breather can be a huge help in releasing the tension or stress that you’re carrying around with you. If you can go to a favorite park, the beach, a hiking trail you love, or simply a walk around the neighborhood; you’ll find that you can let down and get back to your center more easily. If you’re able to take a little trip out of town, even someplace not too far away it can help you to physically get some space so you can decompress and focus on something fun, uplifting, and hopefully relaxing.

Change the Energy

Stress has a huge impact on our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Often, we’re not even aware of the impact it’s having on us because we build up a tolerance to it as it’s woven into the fabric of our daily lives. However, when we’re under a lot of stress, we often notice a difference in the way we feel. As stress increases, our energy decreases.

You can increase your energy by listening to or playing music. You’ll feel your energy begin to shift right away, find some music that feels good and uplifting to you and let it move you back to a place that feels more like you. Changing your food by eating lighter and gentler foods and increasing your water can also support your energy management. Things like Smudging your home and office also help to shift your energy and the energy of your spaces. Receiving a Chakra Balancing or Energy treatment will help to move out the heavy energy and help you feel more like yourself again. Saying no to things, people, and situations which don’t feel supportive to you and instead creating a gentle space for yourself will help you find more balance.

Self Soothe

Think about all the self care things that you’ve put on a shelf for whatever reason. This is the time to get them down and start applying daily. Things like, Epsom Salt Baths, your favorite DIY treatments, watching your favorite movie, or taking time to invest in your creative outlet. Maybe you have a stack of books on your bed side table just waiting for you to begin reading. Maybe what you really want is to put on your favorite jammies, get into bed early, and watch old reruns of your favorite Friends episodes. It isn’t so much about what you do, it’s that you’re doing something consistently. If you need to get your stuff out where you can see it so you’ll be more likely to use it, by all means get your stuff out where you can reach it.

Move Your Body

When we move our body, we release and remove stress. This is why so many people get a workout in when they’re feeling overwhelmed because they can leave it on their mat when they’re finished working out. You don’t have to go to the gym or to a yoga studio to do this; any way that you can get some exercise will leave you feeling lighter and more like yourself again. Go for a bike ride, walk around your block, do a YouTube workout in your living room, get up a good sweat while you’re mopping your floors, or washing your own vehicle, or working in your garden. Just find ways to keep moving your body.

Be Prepared

Okay, for all of you that feel like you’re in a waiting room waiting for a new doorway to open, this one is for you. This is such a specific feeling that everyone knows what it feels like to have a combination of anticipation, excitement, anxiety, and frustration all at the same time because you know you’re about to go through a big change but you’re still in the waiting room. Get as prepared as you can to walk directly through that door when your name is called. What does that mean? It means to do things that may not be super fun but are very necessary to set you up for success and a smooth transition when it’s your turn. Things like: Updating your resume and cover letter, updating your media kit, updating your website, looking for new places to live, getting in contact with your mortgage lender or real estate agent, researching programs, classes, or universities that may be a fit for the direction in which you are moving. In whatever area you know that you’re about to experience a change, start to tick off all the things that you’ll need to do to be prepared when your door open to you. If you feel unsure of how to do any of those things, reach out for help from someone who can help you whether that is a friend or a professional. Don’t wait until your time arrives to scramble and try to throw everything together at the last minute. Prepare for a smooth transition.

Ask for Help

Whether you ask for help from people and professionals in your real life or you’re googling all the info and insight that you can find on the inter-webs, reach out for help. If you feel stuck and you ask for help, you’ll notice that you can shift the way you feel plus gain insight that will help you move forward. I call that a win win.

In addition to asking for help from people and the google, I encourage you to ask for help from your angels, guides, and anyone you feel aligned with spiritually. If you are like me and you love to receive physical signs letting you know that you’ve been heard and are being helped, just ask. I like to ask for a physical sign in my real life that I easily notice and understand to let me know that I’ve been heard and that I’m being helped. Feel free to use this one too if it resonates for you. I like big, bright, bold signs so I know right away it’s for me and this works well.

I know this was a long message this time, but I know that you’re going through a lot or you know someone who’s going through a lot. I hope this will offer you some support and comfort as we all collectively move through this time of great change.

I’m sending you lots of love and support,
Kristy~ xoxo
