Are You Prepared to Bring Your “A Game”?

If not NOW, when?

I wear many hats and “Hockey Mom” is one of them.  This time of year is very exciting in my house because of the NHL playoffs.  The intensity of play is insane!  Players playing at speeds never seen before, many of them diving in front of pucks going over a hundred miles an hour to protect their goal AND shots on goal multiply exponentially.  It’s all for the glory of claiming the prestigious Stanley Cup Title.  Every player brings his “A Game”.  IT’S MADNESS AND IT’S ALL WORTH IT

So how about you?  Are you living the life you see in your mind or simply settling for what’s coming your way?  Here’s what I know for sure~  we were NOT meant to settle.  If you can see it in your mind, you have everything you require to bring it to fruition.  The only challenge is trusting it will show up when you require it.  By trusting you are laughing in the face of fear.  You are choosing to be a warrior instead of a worrier.  You are choosing to bring your “A Game” to the party!

According to Jen Sincero, author of You Are A Badass & You Are A Badass At Making Money, four players must show up and they must be in alignment with what you’re up to in order to change the life course you are currently on.  Your badass team is made up of the following players: BELIEFS, THOUGHTS, WORDS & ACTIONS, with THOUGHTS being the captain.  Life is short.  Regret is painful.  You deserve to live an authentic life filled with joy.  Only you can decide to bring your players and coach them up so their “A Game” brings you your version of the Stanley Cup.

Our Greatest Gift

How often do we hold back the greatest gift to ourselves?

In The Little Soul and the Sun, two BFF souls will journey to Earth together, one thrilled and the other not so eager.  Just before their departure, a favor is asked of the excited soul.  “If you are going to be forgiveness, I will have to be so ungodly in order for you to have reason to forgive me.  As soon as you forgive me, please promise me you will find a way to remind me who I REALLY am.”The promise was made and they were on their way.

I am always amazed how children’s stories are equally as valuable to adults.  This story allows the reader to view any wrongdoer in a completely different light.  You may not agree with the heavenly contract scenario, but I am sure we can all agree these souls have truly forgotten who they are~ beings of light and love.

Forgiveness may feel like the most difficult gift to give another, yet it is the greatest gift we get to give ourselves.  When we forgive another, we are choosing to lay down our grievances.  We are choosing to release the heavy burden of anger, pain and sorrow that keeps us in darkness.  Now, I’m not suggesting you go “hug it out”.  Forgiveness may be as simple as a quiet offering within your own mind.  No matter how mammoth or minute the offense you find yourself experiencing, forgiveness will always set your soul free.

Transforming oneself is a process of shedding off what we are not in order to allow our soul to fully express itself.  An unburdened soul fully expressing lives a life on fire.  It’s a soul living a life on passion with purpose.  One thing I know for sure~ forgiveness is the greatest gift we can give ourselves!

Sports & Women’s Empowerment

We are all in this TOGETHER!

Why do we play?  Because we CAN!  Our entire being says yes as we move on the court, swim in the pool, run on the field, glide on the ice or drive a ball up the fairway.  Whether in practice or game, we feel strong, able and empowered.  Playing allows us the opportunity to battle against an opponent, as well as ourselves.  Sports are the vehicle by which we learn to work together with VICTORY as our united goal.  We get to stand our ground and be heard through our actions.  We get to WIN!

I believe LIFE is the ultimate game.  We play in it, while always remembering we get to play above it as well.  Just as in sports, life provides us with opportunities to choose who we are being.  Are we the champion or the loser, comeback story or the quitter, cheerleader or criticizer, leader or follower?   No matter what’s going on in the game, we ALWAYS get to choose.  It is in that moment, we get to open ourselves up to what it really means to be EMPOWERED.

Right now, we are experiencing a wellspring of women’s voices.  Voices, as individual as they may be, they stand for us collectively.  We are hearing these voices, all of which are devoid of any victim attachment.  They are being heard not because of volume, but rather the display of one’s authentic self.  It is in this way of being, our vulnerability shines through not as weakness, but rather as our strength.

We are all in this together.  As we continue moving forward~ let us continue celebrating each other, being strong for each other and supporting each other as we learn to tame the self-defeating voice within.  The moment we feel our worth within, nothing changes, YET EVERYTHING CHANGES.
