Crestor-based® Choice


 It was a rough morning.  This is what I heard as I listened to my inner dialogue.

  • I woke up tired.
    • Complained.
  • There was a glitch with the bills.
    • Worried.
  • My schedule changed unexpectedly.
    • Felt taken for granted.
  • More work piled up.
    • Felt a lack of control. 
  • My back hurt.
    • Worried about it escalating and having to stop and not accomplish all that “needs” to be done today.
  • I was forgotten by someone I love.
    • I was ANGRY

After a nice lunch and some thought, I realized…

I didn’t want to feel any of it.

With each step, I resisted the feeling.

Resistance makes everything worse.

At any point, I can change my thinking, allow life to unfold, and accept what comes.

Clearly, some days are better than others.  Permission to be human, my friend.

I like this scenario better:

  • I woke up tired. 
    • Choice: Spent 3 minutes in loving-kindness meditation for an extra energy boost.
  • I had a glitch in the bills and chose gratitude for seeing it. 
    • Choice:  “I trust.”
  • My schedule changed.
    • Choice: “I wonder what good thing my Creator was bringing in place of my finite plans?” 
  • More work came in. 
    • Choice: “I am valuable. I am blessed to provide a needed service.”
  • Received an unkind comment.
    • That shows me what they’re thinking, “I choose to love them anyway.”  

It’s not about me. It’s about love and choice.

At any point in our day, we can choose back into satisfying, contented thoughts

and Create Happiness.


Here’s to a great week!

All my love,

 Another listening practice: Consider joining us on the podcast, the 50/50 Girl Club, or in a personal coaching session to truly enjoy and develop your listening gifts. We even have coaching groups, if you enjoy making new friends and working with others.

Did you know?

We are forming guided mastermind groups for the winter quarter.  The people who join will be matched into groups that are similar in 3 ways.  Your group members will have a similar challenge to you, a similar goal and similar circumstances.  Sessions are held with two coaches twice a month, at a time that is convenient for your group.

Our goal in Creator-based® Coaching is to train and give you the tools, while you build relationships within your mastermind that help you as a group to outgrow your coach. You can continue as a group of friends helping and supporting one another.
