Giving and Receiving

As fitting for the season, I have giving and receiving on my mind – more on that below. As well as cocooning. And staying warm and taking care of myself. And thinking forward to 2013 to see what I want to create personally and professionally.

Whatever’s on your mind, I hope it’s merry and bright 🙂



==Giving & Receiving==
This is traditionally a giving and receiving time of year and as such, your giving and receiving muscles can get over taxed. Compassion fatigue. Shoulds. Family and professional obligations. An over abundance of things to do, items to eat and drink, places to be.

What if you choose to give, and receive, strictly from the heart and a neutral place? Give to the best of your ability and call it good. Receive what is offered with graciousness. Ease up on any amount of quid pro quo you may feel or others may wish you to feel. Clear the slate — do you enjoy sending cards? If so, great! If not, they’re off the to do list. Same with parties, gifts and anything else that pops up during the Holiday season.

But how am I supposed to do that, you say? There’s no way I can skip out on Aunt Sally’s meal, the company party, the gift exchange at church…. There is a way – its called saying no thank you, from the heart and a place of neutrality. Take a stand for yourself and your desires from a place of love and spaciousness and do the Holidays up right, just the way you’d like them. Who knows, maybe you’ll even start a new tradition!

==Giving & Receiving: Coaching==

One of the best things about coaching is the spirit of generosity and expansiveness it brings to both the client and the coach. A dialog is opened that allows for new ideas, fresh combinations and possibilities, and an expanded perspective. Desires are clarified, action plans drawn up, and tasks checked off the to do list.

Coaching is part inspiration, part action. It’s a process that can change you and your outlook in subtle, and not so subtle, ways. When you participate in coaching you are saying yes to yourself and what you want your life and work to look and feel like. And YES is a powerful energizer.

Give the gift of coaching to yourself and your friends and colleagues. Receive all the process has to offer. Take a stand for yourself and those around you by creating the life and work you and they can love. Win-Win. Give and Receive.
