Time to re-energize after the holidays? It’s like needing a vacation from your vacation, right? Yikes. And, oh, this is such a real thing! The truth is, the holiday season that you just celebrated in whatever ways can be intense. Family, friends, gifts, rituals, messy people, neat freaks, old issues, new plot twists… it’s often, well, a lot. Whew.

That was then

And you no doubt did your part to try to make the season a beautiful one. This busy life coach can relate. For all the work/life balance we may seek to create, the holidays can tip the scale big-time. Time to tip it back toward a workable middle. Gotta re-energize.

My Podcast, Episode 1: Live YOUR Dream, My Dears. For Real.

I’m excited to roll out my new Live Your Dream for Real podcast, episode 1. In fact, it represents me living my dream. :)

I don’t know where this is going

First, I believe coaching others is an inherently creative act. So I’m stepping into the unknown here, with this blank canvas. The truth is, I’m starting this new endeavor not knowing exactly where it’s going every step of the way from here! And more, I say this is relevant to coaching others to live their dreams. Relevant in the realm of meaning and satisfaction in adult life, work, and relationships. Including our relationship to self. Our relationship to life.

Want to Jack Up Your Progress? Then Take Note: The Fuel is This Version of Self-Love.

On Self-Love - Life Coach Teresa Young

I happened onto the hashtag #selflove on Twitter one night, and I was curious about how it was being used. So I checked out the definition someone had given it on tagdef.com.

Could have several empowering meanings, but is often used as a politically correct term for solo masturbation.

Basically, I’m not buyin’ it

Interesting, and maybe useful to some. But a waste of a beautiful phrase in my view. And honestly, it confused me a bit. Just not at all what I expected. So I looked up self-love on dictionary.com. Check out this bummer of a definition:

Who Will You Be in This Pregnant Moment? Choose. Then Choose Again. And Again.

Life Coaching with Teresa Young

I learned the evocative phrase pregnant moment from my former employer, musical collaborator and dear friend Ricardo Accorsi. Deeply creative, equal parts brilliant architect, artist, and musician, he’s gone now. But his way with language—and life—inspires me still.

Because these days I believe every moment is in fact chock full of new possibilities. And that at our best and most objective, we get to choose who we’ll be in each. Not that this is necessarily easy, but it can be a meaningful endeavor. With such a magnificent capability as context, what energy, ideas, thoughts, feelings, attitudes, and intentions will we bring to the delicious potential of the present?

Begin Again Daily, With Your Life as Your Art. And Again. And Again.

On Beginning Again Daily - Life Coaching with Teresa Young

On the oh, so human subject of beginning again, have you noticed how we humans have good days and bad days, inspired moments, ones that don’t represent our best, and everything in between? Are you 100% clear that it isn’t just you?

Yes. Deep breath.

In living the life of your dreams, I invite you to get clear that Every. Single. Moment. is an opportunity for beginning again. Are you on track, or off? How often do you step out of all your automatic thoughts and feelings to take a look at that? To take stock? Continue reading “Begin Again Daily, With Your Life as Your Art. And Again. And Again.”
