3 Things I Did to Rock Bringing in the New Year

  1. Reflected on what made 2017, well 2017. One of the most meaningful ways for me to do this was to look at our 2017 family photos. We laughed and awed at all the amazing things we experienced and got to be a part of in the past year. Bailey climbing a 14,000 foot peak? Done! Zoe adventuring into the back-country on a bike packing trip with her friends? Accomplished! Josh reconnecting in nature? Too many hikes to count. And for me? What seemed like an insurmountable feat of running up (and then down) 17.1 miles between the mountain towns of Ouray and Telluride by way of 13,114 foot Imogene Pass. Check this one off the list!
  2. Celebrated the wins. Gained wisdom from the failures. Got to reconnect with friends & family in CT over the summer, celebrate my dad's big 7-0 birthday....in Italy, and touch my toes in the ocean after a long hiatus. Failed launching a newly designed website, but learned how to work with what I have and use what is already working.  I racked up a mountain of library fines because I can't seem to get through a single book on time. Learned that I like supporting the library in my own unique way:) and that I could do better with prioritizing my to-do list (ha!).
  3. Looked forward to new horizons. I've come to love the changing over from one year to the next. There is a natural switch over that occurs and prompts me to take time to contemplate what my family and I want more of. As the clock ticked down and the new year turned we're looking forward to so many of the things that bring us joy and happiness like adventuring in our new vintage camper, creating arts and crafts together, cooking together, and being in nature.

I hope you take time to reflect, celebrate, and look forward to the year ahead so you can begin to set into motion what you desire most.

Rock your new year

As the sun sets on this past year I am reminded of the very moment my daughter was born.

The moment I made the promise to be her everything.

To teach her the wisdom which resides within,
to show her to have strength when facing challenges,
to help her unleash the power of her voice.

Over time I’ve watched her brilliantly step into her own way of being

She’s shown me what it means to walk in your own shoes,
to cry your own tears,
and how to light up a room with your own light.

And though many days have passed since that first day, I also know that her potential will continue to unravel. And I want to be there for her.

So, here I stand, at the turning page.

As promised on the day she was born, I recommit my heart & soul to walk with her on this journey, this journey of becoming.

This new year will bring on new opportunities, new experiences, new challenges.

It will require strength, foresight, resilience, patience, love, creativity and tenderness.

Join me. Together let’s give our girl’s the chance for being their best. The world needs them. Like never before.

Recommit…. or commit.

Either way, let's open up, let go, and step into the new year so we can ROCK IT!

thanks and giving

I just finished presenting an online webinar with parents and I asked everyone to share what we were thankful for about our girls right now.

Seeing our girls as whole and perfectly imperfect is THE foundation of her confidence. (all 4 Foundations of the She’s Got This! Interactive Guide will be available Dec. 1st …in it we explore each foundational element, A ROOM OF HER OWN, HEART OF A GUTSY GIRL, THE MIRROR TEST, MOMENT OF TRUTH and learn how we can support our girls from a place of loving understanding and STRENGTH.)

This was just the 1st step with these new folks and I wanted to share what we are thankful for together so that you could understand better what is available to you when you step into this empowering and joyful journey of raising a confident a.k.a. GUTSY girl!

Even after 20+ years of being on this empowering and joyful journey myself, my world still gets rocked witnessing the transformation that happens on SO many levels!

‘I am giving thanks….

My daughter is so special.

My daughter is so loving, so giving, she has a heart of gold.

I feel so proud she is my daughter.

She makes me proud. Every day.

My daughter is not perfect. She is wild, a bit rebellious, and at times makes me crazy. But she also has an amazing heart and I am so proud of her.

My daughter is super amazing and I’m the lucky one. I get to call her my daughter.

Her smile makes me smile. Her laugh is infectious. I love that she is my daughter.

She wants to be friends with everyone. No matter if someone has a physical or learning disability, she just sees others as someone who she wants to be friends with.

She’s so kind. The world needs more kind people and I am so amazed at how kind she is.

She is loving and compassionate and honest and determined, independent, smart. She is so many things and I am so thankful that I get to be her mom.

Every time I look at her, I am reminded of what a beautiful gift she is.'
