This is the time of the year when we pause amidst our habituated routines and consider making life changes. When it comes to my clients, I typically ask two questions: “How do you want your life to look?” and “How are you hindering that … getting in your own way?”
It’s impossible to act on our dreams and desires until we know how we blindly sabotage them.
Anna is a good example. In one of our sessions, she complained about being treated like a doormat … someone who isn’t valued or respected. She wanted the opposite to be true. “Do I wear a sign on my forehead that says: ‘Walk on me?'”
“Well, yes,” I said. “The bottom line is this: If you don’t want to be treated like a doormat, stop being one.”
In time, Anna conquered her inner saboteur. Click here to read about it.
Happy new beginnings!

That takes courage and she did it with such grace!
I know this well. I was raised by the “same” mother. For me, especially with an Uncle, it is hard to stand my ground. I have to get over that he’s a big controlling man, when in all actuality he is a big 3 yr. old. Really! Not sure what I am afraid of, I am just afraid of his yelling. Guess it all goes back to the traumas of childhood. Something to work on in the New Year. Wish me luck 🙂
It has nothing to do with luck, Rachel. It has to do with your dedication to follow your truth. Pat yourself on the back.
Thanks Salee 🙂
