Lesson #37 You Mean I Can Really Start This Life Thing Over?


Yes you can!!!!!  Things change and that includes your life.  You can take control of your life, redesign it, and watch yourself move forward and grow.  You just need to want to do it.  Redesigning your life is perfect for people who feel like they are in a rut, need or want to start a new job, or maybe you are ready for a relationship.  You don’t even have to have a special reason, only the want to.

The first thing to do is rid your home of all the things you no longer want or need.  You can donate them, have a magical yard sale or repurpose them.  While you are going through the clutter and the clothes you haven’t worn for 12 years, take some time to sit down and make a list of what you would like your life to look like.  Be as specific as possible…God is very accommodating. For example: you write down that you want to learn how to dance.  Now you may have country line dancing in your mind, but you will probably land in ballroom dancing or vice versa. So write down specifics…God has a great sense of humor.  Let’s say you deal with anger issues so you list that you would like to be rid of this challenge.  You will need a plan and of course prayer and people to support you in this.  As part of your plan you could list “find someone to talk to about this,” that is where a Life Coach can be very useful.  As a Life Coach I would suggest that you start keeping a journal of the times when you get angry.  Ask yourself what caused that reaction in you, how it made you feel, and how you handled it.  Then you touch base with your life coach and really look at the root cause of the anger.  A life coach my suggest that you check out yoga as a way to learn to relax and be still…it really does help folks who deal with anger.  Or they might suggest you take up boxing.  Seriously.  It works.

The excess stuff is now leaving your life, you are making a list and then choosing something you feel you want to work on, achieve, accomplish.  You have hired a life coach and you work together once a week.

Guess what, you have put a huge dent into Starting Over.  You can do it.  You can change careers, your attitude, your size, your relationship status, your love for painting or playing the piano.

I encourage you to spend some quality time alone and see if there are things you would like to have differently in your life or things you want to accomplish.  Go for it…..it is amazing.

Lesson #8 Normal……..really?….just sayin’!


I have spent time thinking about the word or the concept of “NORMAL”.

I have finally come to my own conclusion about “normal”.  I researched it, read about it, and have realized that I don’t fit the description in any way, shape or form.  I’m not sad about it.  I am happy that I made my own definition for it and I am totally content with it.

Normal is definitely not what I am.  No, I don’t eat worms, or wear hats made of tinfoil, but I am not normal.  The people closest to me really aren’t normal either.  That is where I found my definition…right there in my inner circle.  And it’s going to be the very same place where you will find what normal is for you.

My Definition:  Normal is whatever the majority of people in your life decide it is!!  It’s that easy or that difficult.  I have pink hair, tattoos, piercings, and like baggy clothes.  Now, some of my people have some of those things and we like each other a lot.  Some have none of those things and we remain good friends.

When I step away from my people,  I stand out like a 60 foot statue of Pooh Bear.  People stare, they whisper, they even point at me as if to say, would you look at that!!  How dare she look like that and in public too.  I dare because I can.  If I didn’t believe how I believe, if I didn’t dress as I do, If I didn’t surround myself with like minded people, I would not be me.  I would be someone else.

So, normal is whatever you decide it is.  As long as you are being true to yourself, not hurting or offending anyone, then you are on your own journey of normal.  Enjoy and smile!!!
