May your day be filled with love. May you rest if that is what you need. I pray your environment is filled with positivity, creativity and endless opportunities for you to show up as your authentic self.
“No matter how strong or strong-willed you are, you cannot live a stressful, maxed-out life without that pace eventually biting you in the butt. It is necessary to take breaks, set parameters, and be kind to yourself if you want to continue making an impact in your little corner of the world.” ― Cynthia Mendenhall, author

Labor Day unofficially ushers in the arrival of Fall, and with the arrival of new things, the ending of things that are no longer beneficial is often a companion. What better time is there to be intentional about how you use your effort and where you direct your energy.
If lately you’ve felt like you’re going nowhere fast, use this time to explore new opportunities.
I know you’ve heard the cliche’, when one door closes, another door opens. It is time to be more intentional about those doors. Are there things in your life that no longer serve a purpose for you? Is it time to release them and try something new?
What new ideas or opportunities are you interested in exploring?
Are you ready to move past anything that has been holding you back?
Start the process by, taking time today to self-reflect and focus on how you want your week to go.
What are your intentions for the week?
Do you have clear expectations for positive, forward motion.
Next, set aside time to write down your intentions in the 4 areas below.
Why are your intentions important?
What will you do to make them happen?
After you’ve created your plan for the week, add another week and then keep the momentum going by creating a fully thought-out plan.
If you would like Coaching and Consulting assistance to help you set your intentions, use the link below to get started.
I pray you have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday.
Make Peace A Priority,
Happy Sunday! I hope this post finds you renewed and ready to embrace the week with vibrance and enthusiasm.
Today, the Origins of Peace Team wanted to take a moment to remind you of the incredible power that lies within you, in all of the roles that you fill on a daily basis. It is important to recognize that your best efforts are valued and appreciated.
As you go about your week, it is totally natural to encounter challenges and complications. Remember, to keep your perspective fresh by taking a step back to reevaluate your next steps. If you feel anxious or nervous, embrace vulnerability and growth as necessary parts of your journey.
Creating a routine with peace and purpose requires intentional nurturing, not just strategies and tactics. You have to align your authentic self, your values, and your belief in self to unleash your Origins of Peace! This happens with time and commitment.
This week remember, “you cannot find peace in a place that you do not trust.” Trust yourself to make right decisions for your now and your future. If you feel overwhelmed, take a deep breath and know that you are capable of achieving greatness beyond your imagination.
Place your faith on top of that simple truth.

Make Peace A Priority,
Join me on Sunday, August 27th for the next Peaceful Co-Working Lifestyle. We are talking about PEACE Goals and the 7 Building Blocks you need in order to make them sustainable.
According to the June 2015 Forbes article entitled, Can A Creative Person Survive Corporate Life, a creative person can survive in a corporate environment by taking the following five actions:
- Decide what you want
- Make a plan to get what you decided you want.
- Look at the ways your current situation can help you get what you want.
- Practice self-awareness.
- Speak your truth
I believe in today’s corporate climate, an intentional practice of number four, self-awareness is one that must be done on a consistent, and continuous basis.
As a creative in corporate, I fully realize that my adherence to timelines is sometimes variable. I begin with the greatest of intentions to complete a task on time but find myself off kilter when urgent requests arise or when something happens to redirect my focus. When this occurs, I am fully aware that it takes me a while to find my way back to the original focal point.
So what am I doing to correct this?
In total transparency, this is a current situation that I struggle with. I have recently started using new tools to help with time management and productivity, but it all boils down to the type of projects that drive your creativity and knowing when you’ve done enough creating to move forward to next steps.
If you are a creative struggling in your current work environment, ask yourself, “what do I want?”
Is it time to move forward to something new or will you take the necessary steps to make improvements in your current work environment? As a creative, it is totally up to you.
As you move through this week, be gentle with yourself and know that your creativity is not an impediment to your success, it is a gift. Value it, but make sure your protect it.
Make Peace a Priority,
You were created to live each day with purpose.
“I welcome opportunities to shine. I will tap into my magic and show up in irresistible ways personally and professionally.”
The magic that was available to you as a child is still available to you as an adult.
You likely were raised to believe that all things were possible to you as a child and that you could be, have, or do anything that your heart desired.
Somewhere between adolesence and adulthood, perspectives begin to change.
Everything that once felt like a miracle, begins to feel like a challenge to overcome, or an unreachable goal. As an adult you’ve some how forgotten the magic that you have, and the miracle that is you.
No matter how old you are, the magic still exists. Personally and Professionally, you have the ability to make magic happen in your life.
Ask yourself the following questions to help you tap into your magic:
What can you do to make deeper connections at work and in your social settings?
Are you scheduling networking opportunities with colleagues and engagement appointments with associates to build commaradere?
Does your schedule allow time for you to feel relaxed and at ease, instead of feeling hurried and anxious?
If you are disappointed with the answers to these questions, it is time to make a change.
Start by making a list of opportunities to connect. Brunch, after work activities or weekend Food Truck events are a few ideas to help you get started.
Next, decide who you want to connect with. Are there at least three work colleagues that you would like to get to know better?
Do you want to build your relationships with a few of your associates? After you have worked out those details, now comes the most challenging part.
You have to make time in your schedule to build those connections.
