Today’s podcast was a solo episode as I have been focusing on what this summer will bring there’s a few things I realized I have overlooked, like celebrating what I have in the now. I know I can’t be the only one focusing on “what’s next”, so I will be the one to call it out. If you were like me and struggle to celebrate yourself, shift your mindset from believing it has to be a big deal to celebrate something and that’s celebration even has to be something extravagant. I want to remind you that consistency is key and that the fear inside of you is the biggest thing holding you back from keeping that consistency and doing things you said you were going to do. Let me tell you how to shift your mindset from only focusing on the awareness and stepping into the action that makes you the creator of your reality.

Here are the journal prompts from Agota: 1) What is your biggest fear and how does it impact your life, how does it hold you back? 2) What are the beliefs or stories you tell yourself related to this fear? 3) Look back over your life, especially your early years. What event (no matter how small or 'insignificant') can you trace this fear or belief back to? Most of our unconscious programming/beliefs come from the ages between 0-6 when our brains are like sponges, absorbing and interpreting all the information around us. 4) How did this experience impact you? How did it make you feel, what beliefs did it create, what are the emotions that you still carry with you? 5) Take some time to breathe, cry, let it all out (this part is very important!). Then write out some new beliefs that support the version of you that you want to be in the life you want to live.

027// What is going on right now Universe? Brain Dump
What is going on for you right now? There has been a change of season for myself and the people in my life to the point where I know it is not just me. I know that there is something bigger happening here and now in this day and age so let's talk about it. I spill the tea on topics that have come up continuously in my life but even more specifically are being repeated right now, all in divine timing. Before listening, here are some questions to get your thoughts going: What has society taught us about boundaries? How have “boundaries” changed over time? What disconnect do you see from generations and boundaries, if any? Now is the time to evaluate your beliefs. I challenge you to quiet down the inner voices, listen to your soul, and speak with an open heart. Allow space for your inner child to speak to you and do not judge yourself for any thought that comes in. This episode will share a new personal writing of mine and I would love to hear how it impacts you. Lesson form the reading: write from the view of your inner child and see them for who they were, who they are now, and who they dreamed to be. This episode is for you if you have been going through it and have felt alone, because I promise you are not.

021// Do you know your boundaries? With Coach Patrice
Boundaries are your non-negotiables. Non-negotiables are things that you do not allow to be crossed or to not be met because they are needed for you and your self-care. These are the things that you need in order to feel safe, secure, and at peace.  In relationships with people, boundaries can be hard to set for someone who has never set boundaries before, that is what we are here to help you uncover. You can design your relationship with anyone. What does that mean? It means that you can design in your needs: what you are expecting, what you may have assumed, how you want to go about things, etc. There's one problem though, designing a relationship requires both people to come together and communicate clearly and effectively so that both have been hear and their needs have been acknowledged. Why is it a problem? Well because it first takes one to show up, and we all know that is easier said than done.  So I challenge you that next time you are having conflict in the relationship, take a step back and reflect on the boundaries involved. Do you need to design in the relationship? Join Coach Patrice and I as we dive into our experiences with boundaries and how they impact people. Coach Patrice shared her finally thoughts on boundaries: "Sometimes we don’t recognize the boundaries we have. Then there comes a time that we might face the reality of not having any boundaries or having insufficient ones. Boundaries are very important to protect your standing in a relationship or situation. It’s very hard to keep boundaries if you want to please people or if you want to make them like you. Sometimes there is a critical decision to be made here. I’ve heard it said that boundaries begin with self talk. I actually think that is backwards. We must first define our boundaries, then we must constantly remind ourselves, through positive self-talk, that we are worthy of defining our own life and our relationships." Patrice helps people, especially women to make necessary changes to living the best life they can. Her life fell apart and she had to rebuild it all, which brought her to coaching.  She helps anyone who wants to move forward in a positive direction in their lives. She has a particular affinity for working with women over 40 who are dealing with big changes in their lives due to widowhood, divorce, or relationship issues, but also works with students and creatives. To get connected with her, go to her site: http://audacioustransformations.com In this episode we answer questions like: What do boundaries mean to you?  How did you find your boundaries? What are your boundaries for yourself?  How did you find your self-boundaries?  How do you know if your boundaries are being crossed in relationships? How has knowing your boundaries impacted your life?  What is your tip with setting boundaries? Thank you for joining the guest and I as we unpack for you another layer of self-care.
