There is no end to information. We ingest the internet, books, people, TV, movies, podcasts… the list goes on and on. You could spend a lifetime learning and processing “data.”
The vast information available on a regular basis can be overwhelming and stifling. We could stay in a state of ‘information gathering’ forever and never contribute the talents we possess.
A question: Has this happened to you?
You read, see, or hear something inspiring, and it lights you up, invoking an idea for an exciting project or goal. It could bring extra joy or success in to your life. Wahoo!
Then, just as soon as the thought enters, it swiftly exits after you say things to yourself such as, “I don’t have time for that” or “I wouldn’t know where to begin” or “That’s not the kind of person I am.”
Instead, what if you made the courageous step into endeavoring on your idea?
Here are some thoughts for paying attention to what sparks in you and following through on sharing them:
1. Notice how you enjoy contributing ideas and inspiration NOW. What about it feels good to you? Does it manifest as a physical product, writing, song, a kindness, or conversation? Maybe you share these discoveries by a video, photo, telling a story to a friend or family member, or teaching what you’ve learned.
2. Take part in something new or out of your comfort zone regularly. Pay attention to what affects you and the people you meet. How does this shift your perception? What new nuggets of thought travel into your mind? Do you act or speak differently? Is it uncomfortable or pleasant? Why? How does offering yourself to new situations enhance your growth and wonder of the world?
3. Mix and match what inspires you with how you enjoy taking action. Write down or voice memo whenever you receive information that strikes you as significant and touches you. Look at your favorite ways in which you enjoy taking action and share it with others.
DOING from a loving and creative place FEELS GOOD, and it’s in the best interest of all of us that we contribute our gifts.

Are you holding on to sentimental objects because they bring valued memories to you, or are some of these items kept out of guilt, loss, or shame?
Here are a few tips to help you with emotional belongings:
1. Keep what YOU want. If you possess something that someone else loves, or gave you as a gift but you don’t care for it, let it go.
2. Get CREATIVE. Use a favorite CD as a paperweight, nostalgic books as shelves, or frame concert T’s as artwork. Get the picture!? Bring these items into your daily life and make the mundane, special.
3. CURATE your collection. Imagine you work at a museum and it's your job to choose the very finest pieces to grace the building for visitors to enjoy.
4. Hold it, touch it, how do you FEEL? If the emotions arising are undesirable, this energy sticks with you even if you try to forget it far away in a box somewhere. Ask yourself if getting rid of it would create a sense of lightness.
Whatever you decide to keep, remember that how you store your sentimental belongings is just as important as why you’re keeping them. Find storage options that feel appropriate to what you’re holding on to. Pretty boxes, metal bins, wooden crates, etc.
Sorting through sentimental possessions can be emotional - I’m here to help! I’m available as your right hand during this task. I provide a judgment free zone that’s empathetic and keeps you on track. Sessions are virtual and all you need is a laptop with a working camera & speaker along with access to Skype, Zoom, or FaceTime (for iOS users.)
