Posted on September 18, 2011 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Have you ever gotton lost and start to panic?

This being lost may be physically where you don't know how to get home again, or it may be lost in your life, feeling unsure of where to go to next, or how to move forward.

The natural tendency when this happens is to run faster, circle around, get flustered as you try and find your way.

Not only are you physically racing around but your mind is also racing along at a mile a minute.

Everything speeds up in a panic to try and get you to back to something familiar.

What can you do when this happens?

STOP, BREATHE, and REGROUP

 Many of us approach the New Year with Resolutions that are aimed at having us live our best life. We resolve to do things differently and embark on setting up Resolutions to put us back on the road to a healthier way of being. 

 
Unfortunately the statistics show that 90% of us are not good at keeping our resolutions. Why is this? What can we do about it?

Day 5 - Back to the Real World

Posted on February 8, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Getting back to the real world after being on vacation can be a rude awakening.  As I travelled back from Maui with it's sun, sand and surf, I felt an incredible sense of gratitude for all that I have in my life.  Living in the moment was easy to do as I took in my last day of Paradise with my family.  I did not keep notes for my blog as I decided to let let days 3 and 4 go unrecorded.  As a brief summary, they were amazing.  We had a beautiful last day, travelled the island to take in some different sites on our way to the airport. 

 
Flying all night to get back home was a little exhausting and when I walked into the house and saw the stack of mail and emails I needed to deal with I felt a little overwhelmed.  However, I set up a plan and a strategy for how I wanted this week to go.  I feel ready to get back to the real world.

Living in the Moment is more challenging to do in the real

4 Steps to Achieving Vibrant Physical Health

Posted on February 3, 2010 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

Taking care of your physical health is something that has been written about in a multitude of ways so I am not going to try and rehash what the “experts” say you need to do. What I do know however is that taking care of me is sometimes easier said than done.   It can be a long, frustrating and lonely journey insuring that I do the things that I know help me to feel better.  I want this to change.  I want to take the steps I need to make sure that I am living the life I want.  So I am using this blog to do just that.

What I want to do through this blog is to test my belief: Change can happen slowly with the following 4 steps:
  1. Setting the intention
  2. Developing a strategy
  3. Creating a plan
  4. Telling the truth about what is working and what is not

School Zones and Life - 7 Steps to Help You Slow Down

Posted on November 18, 2009 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

 Have you ever noticed how much more you see when you slow down for a School zone?

 
 When ever I follow the rules and slow right down, I am amazed at how much more I see.
 
I notice the children playing in the school yard. I notice the maroon painted front door, I notice the beautiful blue sky and I notice the beauty around me. I become conscious of my surroundings and appreciate what is going on around me. 
 
This is definitely a different feeling from the racing tension I get when I spend my time thinking about what is next on my list or worrying about everything I need to do.
When we spend our time racing to get to where we need to get to next, focusing on the destination rather than the journey, it is amazing how much we miss along the way.

7 Steps to Help You SLOW DOWN

Posted on May 30, 2009 12:00:00am, by Gerrianne Clare

I remember several years ago I had a flurry of speeding tickets. I owned a children’s clothing store which was starting to falter, I had three kids doing various activities, we were building a house, and I never seemed to have enough time to do anything.  I always seemed to be rushing from hither to yon and within a three week period of time, I received two speeding tickets and a warning. I failed to mention that at this time, I was also doing a lot of soul searching on how I was living my life as I WAS NOT HAPPY.
