{Miracle Marketing} Bittersweet celebrations, compassion and Soul Tribes

Welcome to a fresh new week!

Tomorrow will be one year when my mom passed. I know as many of you have gone through or are going through shifts with your parents and can relate to missing your mom. While she didn’t always understand me and my passionate dreams, and certainty didn’t get what I do (can you relate?), I always knew she loved me. She was always there for me to call and share, even if she didn’t really get all my adventures, travels and why these women pay me to do a retreat. (xo)

I know she is still with me but in a different way. It’s more about just feeling her everlasting love.

I also remember at the memorial service at my parent’s home last year, we were whispering about this “virus thing” and is it something to be concerned about.

Who knew what was coming?

I left Atlanta early last summer and moved in with my Dad while he’s finding his new footing in life…just for a few months. Now, almost a year later I’m still in this tiny country town (by a big beautiful lake, thankfully). We’re learning so much about each other in this new adult to adult relationship. It’s been amazingly easier than I expected and comforting during all the uncertainty and stress this year.

Interesting enough, my oldest son, Nick is starting a new job as an engineer today! (proud mama moment) He moved this weekend from Atlanta to Huntsville, AL. He’ll be there on a big construction project for a data server building for Facebook. It’s so bittersweet – I’m crazy excited for him embarking on his next chapter of adulthood and feel the tenderness of him leaving the nest in a bigger way.

I can also feel the finger grip I’ve had on living in Atlanta loosening even more. I’m dreaming and visualizing my move to the ocean…it’s getting closer.

This week, even though the calendar is full of amazing coaching calls, virtual retreats and heart-to-heart connections, I’m also conscious of practicing exquisite self care, and deep compassion.

The tears are leaking even as I write this.

Compassion is one of the tools every entrepreneur needs. It’s so tempting to ride hard, hustle…that’s what you’re supposed to do if you want to be successful, right?

There are times to work hard and there are times when compassion and self-nurturing are your best friends.

Where in your life or your business could you use some compassion?

What if you gave yourself some space, some love and some grace?

This week I am honoring my mom’s big loving heart (I know where I got it from!) and Nick’s creative intensity, optimism and fierce loyalty.

I hope you have a beautiful week filled with compassion, creative expression and amazing success!

What is your creative dream?

What is stirring inside of you?

What is the creative dream that is bubbling up and wants to be seen?

Maybe you aren’t quite sure yet. That’s ok. Check in with your soul stirrings. What do you know about those little breadcrumbs of desires and yearnings.

This is the perfect time…when many of us have slowed down to a “wintering” energy… check in with your Creative Dreams.

Pour yourself a cuppa, grab your journal and a cozy blanket and have a conversation with your creative dream.

Remember there’s no rules on how to journal. You can write pages written in longhand, quick bulleted thoughts, or a mind map to release the ideas. I do it all depending on my energy and time! Whatever helps you get your soul stirrings out and onto paper so that you can start to play with them and create some shape to them.

Here are a few journaling prompts:

  1. What is the obvious dream right in front of you?
  2. What is the creative dream underneath?
  3. What are the creative breadcrumbs, the soul stirrings that you don’t know what they mean, but they want to be seen and heard.
  4. What is the secret creative dream that would love some attention and nurturing right now?

I would love to hear about your creative dreams! Please feel free to share with me and I’ll hold it with sacredness and possibility.
