Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share some thoughts on how to lean into the story that you don’t want to share. The story you don’t want to share has tremendous power over you.  Here are some thoughts on how to shift that.  You might be thinking it is behind me, I can move on, it is in my past, yet if some part of you is connected to the past in that way then it is energy that is not being used to create your future.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) When you think of a story that you don’t want to share, it creates a shield of shame that shuts you down, it feeds into...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, we dive into the fear of starting anything.  There is a fear of the unknown, the what if’s, the fear of mistakes, of judgements, of what if I screw up, etc.  What if you can paint your new story to be even better than your current one? This quote from Tony Robbins says it all, “Life is a dance between your greatest fear and your deepest desire” ~Tony Robbins In this episode, we discuss:  1)  The fear of starting is a very common feeling, and then we make our worries about starting way bigger, and we feed the fear.  We either feed the fear/doubts...

715 | Emotions Only Last for 90 Seconds show art 715 | Emotions Only Last for 90 Seconds

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a concept that you only feel your emotions for 90 seconds.   Harvard brain scientist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor explains “When a person reacts to something in their environment, there's a 90-second chemical process that happens in the body; after that, any remaining emotional response is just the person choosing to stay in that emotional loop. In this episode, we discuss:  1) The 90-second rule states that the physiological response, the chemical rush behind our emotions, dissipates after about 90 seconds. If we still feel the rush after that, or...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a personal story and a shift that helps me when I am feeling stuck in the struggle or stuck in the victim mindset. It also depends on how we identify with the struggle and what we make that mean about us.  In this episode, we discuss:  1) Struggle teaches us resilience, patience, and the importance of perseverance. Through the value of struggle, we are often forced to adapt and find ways to overcome them. By embracing struggle (or at least what you learned from it) and turning it into opportunities for growth, you can build resilience, improve...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a message from an experience I recently went through as I started yoga therapy during the therapy I recognized how relatable it is that our body holds onto trauma to protect us, much like our subconscious mind holds onto the memories of pain to protect us and keep us safe. I am linking Lisa Bourque’s info below as she is the yoga therapist I am working with in the Southwestern Ontario region.  In this episode, we discuss:  1)  When there is trapped trauma and experience in our bodies, our muscles will react in a way to protect us, even...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a question to ask if it is time to audit yourself.  If things are not working in the direction that you want, or it is a point of frustration, or your demands are high, then maybe it is time for you to do an audit on yourself, specifically on your time and energy. These two factors will change how you show up, the energy you bring into your day and how you navigate your day.  By tracking and reviewing your daily activities, you can identify how much time you spend on each and see if this actually aligns with your goals. In this episode, we...

Own Your Choices Own Your Life

In this episode, I wanted to share a message I heard last week and it sparked my thinking.  You never actually see a person’s wins, you only see what you think their wins are.  “When we fail to acknowledge and celebrate small victories, we get discouraged and the flame inside us starts to dwindle.” “Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.” “If you really look closely, most overnight successes took a long time.” ~ Louis L'Amour In this episode, we discuss:  1)  Never underestimate all the...

In this episode, I want to share our perspective and how when you change the meaning you change the story. 


In this episode, we discuss: 

1)  You can’t change your story until you change what you think things mean.  Perspective creates meaning, meaning creates emotion, and the quality of our life is the quality of our emotions. It’s not the events of our life that are the finest it is the meaning that we make or take from them.

2)   It’s the meaning that we take away from those events that change us, go back to your most difficult experiences and how can you change the meaning of them?

What would I need to believe about that event so it could serve me?  Not what do I believe, what would I need to believe so that it can serve me?
