The title of the photo "It takes a silly girl to lie about the dreams she has" says it all.

There is a question I have asked many clients: “If you knew you couldn’t fail, what would you do?”

The answer is scary and fabulous all at the same time for many of us. Our thoughts and beliefs and “everydays” are made up of so many pieces. So many voices and influences, it is often hard to listen to the quiet dreams of our hearts. I know the quiet dreams of my heart, as I am always engaging them and nurturing them.

It takes a silly girl to lie about the dreams she has. (210)

Recently, a moment of past pent up hurt flashed that dream as a better alternative than what that present moment was offering me. In a sensitive moment of feeling completely misunderstood (one of trigger spots I’m working on healing), my reaction was to remove myself from the pain and move toward the pleasure of the dream instantly and without regard for a community I not only belong to but actually, love. Even if the end choice is good, we still have to remember that there is a path to that choice…..and spur of the moment choices can be dangerous for the surrounding hearts. Personal and professional collateral damage.

Question: Is it selfish to --AT TIMES--protect my own heart and values from the damage? I think not. A team is only as strong as the weakest link, they say, I’ve come to believe that being my BEST self helps not only me personally, also all those I come in contact with and those whom I am in relationship with. I spent up to about age 24 NOT taking care of my body, my mind, my heart, my spirit. That certainly didn’t work. Is it really possible to put others first and protect yourself? Aren’t adults capable of taking care of themselves? When does looking out for everyone else steal from one’s own soul?

It is about being true to self. It is about not tolerating a cancer in an otherwise healthy body of this being. Even more than that, it really is about being free to be ALL that I’m am capable and destined to be. It is about expanding my wings and soaring. As a master soul coach, Nigel, spoke with me in February--it is about what is in my heart.

In my heart, I help millions find a deep love for themselves –exactly for who they are—and I help them use that love to become all that they were meant to be for blessing their businesses, for blessing their families, for realizing their dreams, for honoring their spirits—and maybe—for the blessing the world.

It’s just what I do.

Oh and, It’s not about the money.

Yep...I broke a cardinal rule of blogging by posting on 2 sites- -both my personal and professional blogs. Oh well
