Give |peace| a chance.

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false]  I didn’t know what peace really meant. When I was young it meant a very small portion of something as there were eight of us to share and as kids our piece was always small. I figured out the difference as I grew up. As a teen it came in the saying “Peace, man”. There was “give peace a chance” that John Lennon said in the 60’s, from a bed holed up in the Queen Elizabeth Hotel with ... Read more

Is |home| where your |heart| is?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] They say that home is where the heart is. Who are ‘they” anyways? Well the heart of my home is the kitchen. Actually it is where I am sitting right now, on a stool at the counter with a cup of tea at my right, even though I am a lefty. I can’t stop writing and want my tea hot so there you have it. When family and friends come over for a meal or to commiserate over a ... Read more

Have you ever had “yeah, but-itis”?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] I cannot tell you how many times people have said “yeah, but…” in response to something I said. I may have had an opinion, insight or idea they either never heard completely or couldn’t be bothered to listen. Like they were busily creating what they were going to say. Brushing me off completely while they created their case! I end up feeling like I don’t matter or that I must defend myself. It’s awful! How do I know that ... Read more

What’s in a name and how did you get yours?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] I was second born to my 11 month older brother in Winnipeg, Manitoba on November 28, 1958. I have 4 younger siblings of which 2 were girls and 2 were boys. I was given my father’s name Rowland, even though my parents were not married until five of the six of us were born- I was told this nugget as a teen. I was named after the perky character from the song in the movie “Tammy and the ... Read more

Evesdropping #2 | “Eve has been |shoulding| all over herself!”

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] You met Eve last week in "Eve" a REAL client!  Eve had come a long way in her quest for happiness and value in her first coaching session. Her next session began with thoughts about feeling guilty. Eve felt guilty about so many things. Guilt about not being the best mom,  not doing enough of ‘this’ and even doing too much of ‘that’ at times…I know that you get what I am talking about. Some of you have ... Read more

It took me 50+ years to find my purpose…

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] Today I know what my purpose is and I can tell you that it took more than 50 years to find it. It is not apparent in all that I do, but I am getting closer daily. I believe God had guided me to be of service with what I have learned in my first 50 years. I expect to have another 50 as my mom’s mom lived to be 99! This purpose comes to me in the ... Read more

10 “Energizing” |Habits| #2…What feeds your |soul?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] Yeah, for me! Last week I kicked off “10 daily “energizing” habits and I for one did it! Well I did the first one, which was the plan, after all. I was a bit lazy on the weekend as I did some writing in advance, sort of. In reality I wrote every day as I was working on a new piece or editing one for the next day so it seems that is the nature of this beast. All is good ... Read more

Are you having a “trying” day?

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] Last week I wrote from a thought after reading ...to always try just "one more time" and immediately- it was all wrong for me. I missed out on the most important points so I will do this “one more time” for me- and for you. I really have ditched the word “try” from my vocabulary. My antenna goes up when I hear someone say “I will try to be there...” Or “I will try not to do that ... Read more

I have learned…my GPS only works for me

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] Who's driving your car? You know how it works, you are a passenger in the car beside your spouse, family member or friend and you give unsolicited directions. “Turn at the next corner, it’s shorter.” “How come you don’t change lanes?” “Slow down! (to a crawl) - I am nervous when you ( not me) drive.” It wasn’t that many months ago that it occurred to me after the words slipped quickly from my lips, that I may be ... Read more

Is your child your “Mini-Me?”

[tweetmeme source=trcoaching only_single=false] "A low self-love in the parent desires that his child should repeat his character and fortune; an expectation which the child, if justice is done him, will nobly disappoint. By working on the theory that this resemblance exists, we shall do what in us lies to defeat his proper promise and produce the ordinary and mediocre. I suffer whenever I see that common sight of a parent or senior imposing his opinion and way of thinking and being ... Read more
