Eps 125: Solo Show About Goals, Practice and Living Committed

Welcome, thank you for showing up!


Super happy new year!!

  • Love that everything is possible

  • Fresh opportunities

  • Embodiment of excitement/anticipation

 The work of parenting….

  • Really the work of human-ing

  • Being in relationship with self/others

  • Recognizing our own conditioning and breaking through to our souls desires

  • Honored to support

Todays topic – what it means to hold the container and get the results you WANT


  • Overarching goals “What do you want at the end of our work? How will you measure success?” This can be anything from potty trained toddlers /easier bedtime/deeper relationship with teens /less yelling and more loving…

    • Some is easy to measure, some, not so much….

    • PLUS it is a pendulum swing

  • Many. Small. Steps.

It is so important to set goals – that way you know where you are going.

  • Cruise control vs being intentional

  • Being intentional DOES require you to face some hard truths sometimes, to bump up against thoughts/ beliefs / emotions that maybe you have become really skilled at avoiding

  • AND to live the fullest, most authentic life, we must make room for ALL of it – even the stuff that is hard

 Setting goals

  • I have weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual goals

  • They all feed into each other

  • The baby steps I take during the week set up my for the monthly goals,etc

  • The ANNUAL GOALS are the container (remember, I mentioned that earlier?)

 Living the practice

  • It’s not even really about the goals, it is about the journey TO the goals.

  • It is about going 100%

    • Reference Krista’s blog post about 100% is easy

    • https://boldlyembodylife.com/bold-notes/.

  • It’s every moment of saying yes to the practice we have decided to commit to.

  • “To be responsible, keep your promises to others, to be successful, keep your promises to yourself.” – Marie Forleo

    • what this means to me….

    • Yes to myself for myself

    • How that then influences the entire ecosystem around me

      • What do I mean by ecosystem?

      • What happens in a healthy environment? Everything is influenced

Journey to Joy Ecourse

Journey to Joy is a 3 part offer. 

Each Module contains a video, audio and workbook to guide you in doing your work. 

You will increase your awareness around the areas you are stuck (you know, the irritation that never seems to go away… the exhaustion, the guilt and shame that shows up so often after you have “dealt with” the challenges your kids bring on a regular basis.

You will spend time exploring new choices, new ways of being…  Inviting in the qualities that are missing.  Love, compassion, self acceptance and non-judgement…  You will learn how to open up your body and allow these emotions in.

You will create a practice for teaching your body and mind a NEW pattern, making this new way of being more readily available when you need it.
