Can you believe that we are already a few days into Fall?
While we don't quite get the full changing of the seasons feeling here in Northern California wine country, there is a rather unique indicator that flip-flop and sun dress season is coming to a close...well, probably by the end of October at least...
It's the thundering rumble of huge semi-trucks hauling the 2016 grape harvest off toward the next stage in their evolution.
It's the distinctively sweet, raisiny, and at times funky smell of the grapes making their segue into one of the finest things that may ever glide over your palate...
It's the gorgeous amber and rusty hue of the leaves and vines...ahhh...
So what does all this waxing oenological have to do with your journey?
It's about life-changing transformation.
Could this be the time for yours?
How do you choose to live the next season on your journey?
There is no time better than the present to take a stand for breaking free of the nagging negativity, freak-out fear, and ho-hum helplessness that is standing in the way of you living each day of your journey with the confidence, joy, and calm that you know in your heart you deeply desire.
With a virtual parade of holidays and gatherings around this time of year, will you give yourself permission to deeply engage in your life, feel more ecstatic happiness, and connection with the people you love most, no matter what your journey has in store?
All of that is available to you.
You've got 96 days till 2017.
How will you live them?
You can transform your stress and the way you live this journey faster than you think, when you say a giant HELL YES.
I will spare you a cheesy comparison between you and a fine wine.
Ready to take a stand? I'm here.
Lots of love,
Intrigued? Here's an exercise to take this to the next level...
What do you most want to change about the way you live your journey?
1) Make a list.
Are you tired of feeling so afraid?
Is it time you had a much needed, honest, perhaps scary convo with your partner?
Are you tired of being cheap with yourself and not getting the support you desire?
Is it time to give a super-negative friend the boot for a while?
Ready to scale down your workload?
Want to take more time off?
Could you really use a daily nap?
Want to spend the holidays away from tiresome relatives who torment you about your journey?
These are just to help you along...I bet you have even better ideas!
2) Do something about it!
3) Done with not following through or not knowing where to start? Hire a coach. (that's me.)
Stretch yourself. Remember, it's about progress, NOT perfection.
