2018 was good to me, but it was the first year that I focused on gratitude and value. I took away all of the manifesting, and dream boards, and quite frankly, demands of the universe, and replaced them with giving. Giving without any expectation.

So there I was, postpartum, post C-section, post traumatic birth, but still doing my thing and in my element on TV. Some people fear the camera. Fear the stage. Fear the live video-- I LOVE IT! I felt GREAT after my segment, so naturally when it aired and then posted online, I watched it. And there it was, that one little comment wrecked me.

"But I'm better than them!" My hubby turned to me. "Babe, jealousy is like swallowing poison." Wise words. When we look at the root of jealousy, it's affection, or a lack of it. It's fear of abandonment, and it's holding the comparison stick to someone else. I couldn't help but wonder, are any of these thoughts useful?
"Get in the shower NOW!" I sternly said through snot and sneezing, As I learned that my son and his friends got into the Ant Killer Spray my husband left on the deck. Allergies blazing like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, I had enough of this day. CLUNK. "Son of a..." The Muskoka chair my husband was building came apart as he tried to lift it up.

I'm a business and wellness coach. I KNOW BETTER. I've been 130 lbs, 250 lbs, a size 2, a size 14, but none of that matters.
I've been an emotional eater for pretty much as long as I can remember. Acting out of impulse and fear. No one wants to raise their hand and own up to that fact that they can't handle their emotions. Me especially. Ask for help? Admit that I don't have it all together! No way! But why the hell shouldn't we?
You see, hurt people, hurt people. But you can't take it personal. Haters used to destroy me. Growing up as a people pleaser, I was WRECKED if someone didn't like me. In fact, I wanted people to like me so much that I forgot who I was. I forgot what I wanted. I forgot about my own needs and my health. Forget path of purpose, I didn't think that far. And it costs me a lot of time, happiness, and memories.
