Navigating My Way- Helpful Tips to Help You on Your Journey


I am navigating my way.

In the past I have shared bits about my healing journey.  Healing from Lyme was without a doubt one of the hardest, scariest, most challenging things I have ever been through in my life.  I have said that it was my greatest teacher, and without question it has been.

I believe that everything happens for a reason and that we are exactly where we are supposed to be at any given time.  It may not always make sense, but I have found this to be very true.  

On my journey, many things have shifted. I see many things very differently now.  I live my life very differently now. So much has changed.  I have changed, my relationships have changed, and it is in some ways as if I am starting over.  

This journey has lead me to where I am now.  I went from being home with my kids for 12 years to becoming a health and lifestyle coach and starting my own biz.  This has its own set of challenges.  And at times it is really scary.  I worry about crazy shit that I know isn’t true. Can I really do this?  Am I going to be able to help these women?  Who I am to be starting a new venture at 44 years old? The list goes on. When we let that critter brain of ours take hold, things can get a bit out of control. When I notice this, I put the STOP sign up so those thoughts cease and if that doesn’t work I turn to my tribe.  Giving attention to those unwanted thoughts only allows what we resist to persist.  

I remember that I need to leave enough room in the process of new beginnings to be kind to myself, because it takes time to get accustomed to anything new.  

So for you reading this, there are times in our lives that lend to starting something new. A relationship, a job, having a child, changing certain behaviors. Releasing that which no longer serves us.

The beautiful thing is we can choose to start new at anytime.  We always have a choice.  It can be something as simple as a day that has started off on the wrong foot when we can make that mental shift to start again. Whatever it is, there is no need to get down on yourself if you don’t achieve what you are wanting to immediately.  Acknowledge forward motion, and choose to reset again.  I can’t tell you how many times I have had to reset and start again!  It is part of the process. Know that with each choice, we learn, grow, and move forward.  

As I am navigating my way on this journey of mine, I have learned a few things along the way, and I am sure I will always be learning.  I will share along the way.  And know that what I share will be reaching those who need it most.  We are all capable of confronting and overcoming challenges in our path, and I believe this empowers us to keep reaching for what we ultimately want for ourselves.  

We may at times find ourselves to have veered off our paths.  It happens.  Here are some tips to help you get back on and help you on your journey.

  1. Our individual journeys take us to many unexpected situations.  Sometimes we don’t understand these experiences, why they are happening.  But if we wait long enough and look deep within, the reason will usually reveal itself.

  2. When we find ourselves facing difficulties with a particular plan, person, or project chances are we already know whether we are meant to continue or let it go.  Simply look inside yourself for the answer and TRUST.

  3. All events in our lives lead us to other events.  All that we have created in this moment is a result of a past events or experiences.  Experiences that don’t make sense, as well as those that we wish hadn’t happened are just as responsible for all the good in our lives.  There is always a positive intention.

  4. When we feel hopeless, directionless or when all the pieces of your life don’t seem to make sense, remember there may be some other reason why we are where we are at that time.  Experiencing what we are experiencing at that time.  For me personally, it has been in these times when someone important comes into my life.  For example, when I was at my darkest time in dealing with my Lyme that I found a coach, who literally helped me see and change my story.  Or the time when I was scared shitless as I was starting my coaching business and without even looking found someone to help me along my way. Or I'll have an experience, such as my illness that changed how I see things in a profound way. Realizing the power of saying no to things I really don’t want to opened me up to so many other things that I really wanted to do.  It really has been enlightening to look back on my past experiences. Remembering them helps restore faith in the present.  

  5. Life is full of buried little treasures.  They are there.  It’s about cultivating an awareness, being mindful and allowing.  It is then that we can fully appreciate our present moment in time.

I hope you have found this to be helpful and in a way comforting.
