A friend had her web site lifted & that stopped her! And another had her designer flee the country!
I have no dire excuse!

I’ve decided to hold a Spring Cleaning Accountability Day-April 1st. I’ve got a FREE bridgeline, people call in get group encouragement, say what they’re going to do, and 2 hours later, we all call & report you did, aree doing it, or got stuck and didn’t start! We’ll try to help & problem solve so they can do the task. Sorta like having to go to gym cause you don’t want to let down your workout buddy!
So far, me in MD, friend in IL, friend in UK and client-we do Life coaching together in CA and?
Won’t you join us?
My task is de-clutter my office-I’m drowning in paper! Clearing & organizing is part of Wellness.
What do you want to get done?

I almost forgot to tell you what I experienced at this womens circle group called Gather the Women. We were about 20, all mid-life in or having gone through some life changes/transitions and very open to discussing current state of affairs, looking at solutions that result in peace, no poverty, clean & healthy environment, a society where all women & children are safe! Before you think we just talked of world problems-not at all.
We made book marks of spirit beads so we all have a memento of the day. Listened to music, had lunch and 20 strangers left as friends.
Gather the Women is a grassroots organization-looking at how every woman and male supporters can make a difference-one at a time. They help women start womens circle groups-I’m starting 2-one by phone and the other local to reach more! Women are the traditional caregivers, nurturers & of course, mothers, either of their own children or simply of Mother Earth.
There are several books by Jean Shinoda Bolen-The Millionth Circle & Urgent Message to Mother, to name a few!
So, tell me-what would you like to see changed to make our world a better place?

In about 20 minutes, I’m going to a Gather the Women full-day seminar. It’s about change-both inner and our world! Universal wellness! We’ll talk and learn & share what we feel about current events, life, the world in ourselves. We do this by organizing into womens circle groups. This is a warm, supportive collaboration, sorta like a town meeting. I can’t wait!

When you hear wellness,organizing doesn’t come to mind! I read that sometimes, we can’t get things done until we prepare a space for it-so, I’m about tofinish a chapter for "Inspiration & Fulfillment", do an e-book for the one woman business ower and create a teleclass series…Time to be clutter-free now!
So, I’m doing my computer "Spring cleaning"!

I finished with my coaching client & while waiting for my husband started reading Smart Woman magazine-it focuses on mid-life women & dealing with transitions in their lives…perfect for this mid-life woman career coach! The article talked of how various women kept their mind/body soul wellness? Made me ask myself-how do I do this? Do I?
Yes! I recharge and get in touch with my wellness, by petting my cat, talking to good friends, seeing a fun, romantic comedy,listening to relaxing music,take a walk and , oh yeah, workout! Sometimes! Some hit the gym, dance, meditate…
How do you reconnect with your mind/body /soul?
I am a Career/Life Transitions Coach. I am an E-Commerce Business. I am a wife, mom of 2 cats! 🙂 I am a tandem cyclist! I am an acupuncture patient…and so on-you get the idea. For the past few days, I’ve been talking & ranting to my friends and my coach-"I’m on OVERWHELM!" Well, today,as suggested by my coach, I sat down & planned out my work schedule-put in my planner-my dates I had coaching clients (was in my Coaching Calendar-now all in 1 place!), appts, networking meetings and what projects I work on each day!
Of course, I may spend time outside of my alloted time if I’m "in the flow"…but I feel so free-it’s all there! So, what projects are you needing to schedule or make room for?
Please comment-then I won’t feel like I’m talking to myself! Folks email me-but don’t post…I wanna hear your thoughts!
I just read Andy Wibbel’s post "Planning is not Productive"-http://andywibbels.com/post/1071"
Yep-I am a great planner. I help my coaching clients move forward and create individual Action Plans. It also combats "overwhelm." I know this from personal experience. I feel more sure of what to do-where I’m going , once I have a plan! Just have to guard against thinking that by planning, your goal is reached. A plan is simply a roadmap to achieve that goal.
I know I can get wrapped up in planning my "To Do" list for hours and that’s all I’ve accomplished! Then, since I’m a very productive after midnight kind of person, I manage to get my to do list, done! So, I can start another one!
Blogs are supposed to be personal…Here it is! I’m feeling Blech-like I was runover by a bulldozer! Sandpaper was swallowed-at least that’s how my throat feels! Change? Life transitions? This mid-life woman feels yucky! And I’ve got my first Product Factory class tonight! I’ve been sooo looking forward to it! www.michaelport.com and now, I think I’ll have to just listen to the mp3!
Usually, I’m full of resources & information…Atchoo! Rest!
