@Sandi Amorim They sure do Sandi! There is beauty in the fact that life is never handled, because once you realize and accept that, you stop trying to fix yourself and control everything around you and you can drop the pretense that you've got it all together. To me that is freedom!

Beautiful, vulnerable & powerful. Gave me goosebumps!!!! Thanks for sharing so honestly Sandi. I absolutely loved the line "Life is never handled, and the journey never ends, but it may take you ’round the bend to a place you hadn’t expected."
@Andi Roo Thrilled that you're thrilled! I look forward to getting to know you. Will be in touch soon!

@Estieb Sounds like your plate is full and you're definitely not alone in putting your needs last. However, to be our best for others it is so important to nurture and take care of ourselves.What is one baby step you can take today that will help you better manage your stress? Also, how can you start tuning into your body's whispers before they call out to you in the form of migraines and muscle aches?
@fieldsofwisdom I am so glad you enjoyed the article! I am working hard these days to be more compassionate with myself especially on the days when I struggle to tune into my body's messages at the level I desire. It is definitely a journey, some days are easier than others. I am curious, how do you "nourish" your body on all levels?
@SharonE With practice it gets easier to understand what your body is saying. Your comment about feeling guilty of taking rest and time for yourself is so common. Many women feel that way. I used to feel that way. However, if we don't take care of ourselves, listen to our bodies and recharge, we cannot give our best selves to the world, our families, our kids, our partners, our friends and our clients. So taking time for yourself is really a very loving and kind thing to do not only for yourself but for those in your life! :)
@LisaBussanichRyder I think it is human nature to get in our own way. I know I tend to be quite good at it! :) However, when I become aware of what I am doing - then I have a choice to make. Awareness is key AND it sounds like you have good awareness.
@verodaoust I am so sorry for your loss! Please be gentle with yourself and give yourself the time and space you need to transition back into your daily routine.
@Vicky White I hear you Vicky! Although technology is great, unplugging once in a while is a great gift for body, mind & soul! When I unplug and do no-thing, it allows me to go inwards and reconnect with what matters most. There was a time in my life when I didn't listen to the whispers, actually, I ignored them and just pushed through my days. Eventually my body's whispers turned into screams and I still didn't listen until my body stopped cooperating with me and I had no choice but to SLOW down and start taking care of myself. I now work very hard at catching those whispers before they become 2X4s and am passionate about teaching others to do the same! :)
@Sandi Amorim @Andi Roo I have to admit, I sometimes miss the whispers too! :)
@Andi Roo I think our bodies' whispers help keep us proactive about doing what we need to do to live a longer, happier life. Lets face it, life gets busy and sometimes even messy and we get caught up in it all. When our bodies whisper to us and we answer the call, to me, that is being proactive since we are tuning in and then making a healthier choice. Sounds like you have a nice dialogue going on with your body Andi! :)
@Sandi Amorim @LynnHess Simple but not always easy! It requires a lifelong practice. Showing up everyday with a willingness to be more aware and the ability to laugh at yourself when you start taking things a little too seriously! :)
@LynnHess YES! Good quality sleep is crucial as is doing something to ground and center yourself. It makes such a difference to my day when I take even 5 minutes to ground and center myself. I'm curious, what can you do when you catch yourself being caught up I the busyness of life to bring yourself back to being grounded?
I love all 5 but #1 just smacked me upside the head! :)

I love my home AND I would love it even more if I could get rid of the clutter. Your statement that "your home is a living vision board" really resonated with me. Wow, I sure have some work to do because right now my living vision board is looking a little chaotic and stifling. In theory, I love the idea of decluttering, in reality the process overwhelms me. Thanks for a great post, you have definitely given me food for thought!

Great interview! The book sounds like a must read. Loved the idea of the 8 teachers.

@Carol Hess I can so relate to what you are going through as well. I am now taking baby steps towards leveraging my fear to help me take action and when my thoughts and fear start to snowball I remind myself thatI don't have to believe everything I think! I somehow get the feeling that this will be a lifelong practice. :)

@Ellen Berg Oooh Ellen, I love that analogy!
Hey Ellen, great post! Made me think of another Eleanor Roosevelt quote:"Do one thing everyday that scares you." Just imagine the new opportunities and experiences we would have if we lived by that quote!
Count me in Ellen, I cannot resist a good dare!

Wow! Powerful post that really packs a punch!!! I don't remember the last time I was "all in", no excuses. Me thinks it is time to re-evaluate what I truly want and then take the leap. Thanks for the inspiration, Ellen!
