YOU TRULY ARE A WORK OF ART!
When you think of the process an artist uses when creating an art piece, what comes up for you? I am an active, artist, and I say active because I paint and create in some way, something every day, and I bet you do too! I'm a life coach and mixed-media artist. That means that I use several different mediums in my paintings such as paint, pencil, pen, marker, collage papers and so on! So, that got me thinking about the artistic process and working on our dreams is so related in so many ways! I went to art school, I have a bachelors in art therapy. There I learned so much about the process rather than the "end result." It's really more about the journey and process, the moments that occur while painting, sculpting, writing and all. Not just about the outcome! So many times we all can get hung up on the outcomes in working toward our dreams that often we can miss those moments during that teach us, that we can learn and grow from! Some of the most important lessons I've learned have occurred in the journey! I have learned so much about myself, why I think the way I do and do what I do and that I CAN change it!! It's very empowering and a more calming, stress-less way of moving forward! When we focus on the outcome/end result, that can lead to stress, anxiety and anxiousness (as I know well and maybe you do too!)
So, I invite you to think about this, even just a little bit. I can say that it has changed my life and it can change your life, thinking and how you take action with more intention and purpose!
Lots of love, Tina
Do you ever feel like you need to slow down a bit and hit the "pause" button? Life can be SO crazy busy that sometimes, right? You get runned down, exhaused with little energy left for everything else in life! I hear you and I've been there, recently even. There comes a time (often) when we need to take a break! It's essential to your success (in my humble opinion!) Almost a year ago I found myself very runned down and even became ill and found myself in the hospital for a couple days. I kind of had to go back to the basics and focus on what was important for my life and business and listen to my heart, mind and body more. I ignored some signs that I was experiencing that something wasn't right. I had to access things a bit and shift what I was doing (and slow down) and check my stress at the door too! Also, many times it's in the quiet, calm and chill moments that inspiration can truly flourish, amazing ideas and creativity can flow! I want this for you too! For this reason I was inspired to launch my 2 week online retreat, REJUVENATE, starting March 5th, and I couldn't be more excited!!
The retreat will consist of one Facebook live per week in a private Facebook group. Something sent to your inbox everday, challenges (optional of course) every day, journaling prompts too. I will be posting a video each week as well in the private Facebook group. It's my intention that through this retreat community will blossom from it. Get ready to relax, recharge and renew! It's in my belief that we all can benefit from such a pause every so often. Please let me know if you have any questions!
Much love, Tina

I realized something about myself even more recently. When it comes to my big dreams and goals, I'm not all in. That seems silly, doesn't it? I will tell you why this occurs, and this happens with client's I have worked with as well.
The main reason for this is fear! It's similar to jumping into a pool that you know is going to be cold at first. You just have to JUMP in! Then it gets better, doesn't it, not as cold or uncomfortable! The same is true for our goals and dreams! Going ALL IN means that you (and I) are going for it with faith and trust! We aren't allowing fear or limiting beliefs to lead us or control what we do or don't do, or take massive action on! In the face of fear, we JUMP!
That, to me is what going all in is! Then, we match our actions with what we have decided and chosen to do! We can't just talk about it, we have to do it, we have to take action! (Yes I repeated that!) :) How amazing it is to see and experience our progress when moving toward and closer to our dreams and goals, right? Tonight I experienced just that, I got so much done, things that I needed and wanted to accomplish and I did! I was "giddy" with excitement and it all felt SO good and relieved too!
You also can achieve the same! Small wins=Progress, Big wins=Progress! Celebrate them all, no matter how big or small!
You are playing to win, right? Play BIG and dream BIG while celebrating the small wins too!
You've got this! ! ! !

As I write this post, I am contemplating Mother Teresa's being a canonized tomorrow, Sunday, September 4th. She has always been special and important to me for and in my life, my whole life since I was a child. My grandpa and I wrote her when I was 8, inviting her to my First Communion and sending her a check for $5. We knew she wouldn't be able to attend, but, a great and wonderful gift would be on it's way shortly after sending the letter. Mother Teresa wrote me back!!!! She wrote a short note to me on a prayer card and signed it as well as signing the back of the returned check. My grandpa and I, as well as my whole family were ecstatic to receive this. A treasure obviously that means so much to me and that I am grateful for! This is an example of her love and generosity! Even in the midst of all her work in the service of others, she took the time to write to me.
She is an example of how to treat and relate to others.. An example of what it means to truly love and care about others....unconditionally, asking for nothing in return. She valued every person. Truly a person that we can learn from and live like!
Feel free to comment about your thoughts and feelings about this blog post, I'd love to hear about what you think!

Have you ever thought about what you want your legacy to be? You probably have at some point, and if not I am sure you will. The thing is, why do we have to "wait" until we can "leave" our legacy? Why can't we LIVE our legacy--NOW? What do you think about that? There is so much we can give and do now to help the world become a better place and to make a difference in the lives of others! Isn't that our true goal and purpose? When I think of legacy I think of something very inspiring, something of making an impact in the lives of others and the world. Maybe take a moment to ponder this a bit....it also is our purpose--we all have a purpose in this world, in our lives! This is not only for a select few, but for EVERYONE my friend!
What do you want your legacy to be and who do you want to become? Start living it NOW! If this is something you'd like to talk about, I'm here for you, book a free call with me here: https://plantingseedscoaching.youcanbook.me/ Maybe you are wanting to start living your legacy now but don't know what it is or how, schedule a call with me, I'd love to talk with you!

Love and blessings to you my friend,
I have to talk about this with you all; something that I have truly, truly realized not only about myself, but about so many people! We don't realize our true potential. It's like a gem that's buried or hidden, a treasure. . . .
Why, why do we keep it to ourselves? Why do we not SET IT FREE? This was me. . . .
I knew that I had potential, I knew I had something to give, offer and share with others! BUT because of FEAR of being judged, FEAR of the unknown, FEAR of even being ridiculed, FEAR of failure, FEAR of not doing it right......and on and on. SO, then I didn't begin to do/begin what I was called to do. I settled with the thinking, "I'll never be able to do that anyway, so even try?"
WHAT???? What's that about?? I mean, SERIOUSLY????? What in the world was I thinking? When I see others going down the path I had been on, it TRULY breaks my heart because IT DOESN"T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY! So much time goes by when WE CAN be living our dreams and goals, serving and helping others in powerful, impactful ways! TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE MY FRIEND! I want to help you and others like you discover their potential, passion and purpose for your lives!
I am NOT going to waste any more time! I am going to continue to step out in FAITH daily! Will you join me? I want this for you my friend, to live the life you are called to live, live the live that you want to live, live the life you were MADE to live!
Love and blessings, Tina
