The 12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 12!


“…The key is to surrender to the bigger dream that life has for you. I’m not living the dream because Im special. I’m living the dream because I was obedient to the call of the dream. So, what is life’s dream for you? So many people spend their life hoping and wishing and desiring things. But this is what I do know for sure: You don’t get what you hope for. You don’t get what you wish for. You get what you believe.” ~ Oprah

Oprah spoke above in her and Deepak’s meditation series on time in reference to her early dream to own a home that had six trees. She noticed that rich people’s homes had trees and the richest woman she knew had six. She had a vision for her life and when she truly surrendered to it, her vision was realized beyond what she could see and includes a home from which she can view hundreds of trees!

That may sound woo woo, but I too have experienced this. I was a painfully shy child and only wanted books and my mom. I would cross the street to avoid having to make eye contact with someone. In my teens, the realization came that living the life I wanted wouldn’t happen if I didn’t learn how to engage with people…all kinds of people. So, I did.

Then years ago, I told myself that I had enough friends. More limited thinking! My front row is small, but expanding my definition of connection…expanding my tent, literally expanded my world to include meaningful relationships with people from all parts of the globe and many wonderful experiences with them.  That shy little girl is STILL in me. People don’t believe it because they can’t see it, but she’s there and she’s a great reminder that we are only limited by what we TELL ourselves.

So I ask Oprah’s question again:



Are you Living It?

Getting there starts with GRATITUDE for your right now. I hope you’ve ALL felt the gratitude I’ve attempted to express for you during The 12 Days of Thanksgiving! On this 12th and final day, I’m sending Love and a prayer that you live life beyond your wildest dreams. If you’d like coaching to help you figure that out, email me to schedule a free consult call. And on the 12th Day of Thanksgiving, your coachng is gifting you: a 20% Discount on my coaching services (excluding the retreat)!! Good until 12/31/17**. 🙌🏾🙌🏾

Enjoy a wonderful week of thankfulness! ♥️♥️

The 12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 11 (Corrected)


Well, I think this group loves tea and socks! LOL!! Watch this short video to see who won.

It’s been a wonderful bonus to get your responses to the 12 Days. LOVE this poetry from the amazing Barbara Royal re my manifesto:

your manifesto is like…

hot syrup on a plain pancake…
a crunchy spiced pickle dripping juice…
a slap ya in the face salty wave…
a slurp of warmed caramel chocolate…
a puffy floating Cloud ready to open its moist pores!

Right behind the Hyggë box in popularity is the free hour of coaching and on the 11 Day of Thanksgiving, your coaching is AGAIN gifting you: One free hour of coaching (previous recipients excluded). Request by midnight Wednesday night and you’ll receive the link to schedule.

Tomorrow ends the 12 Days, but not my tremendous love and gratitude for YOU! I’ll be going back to minimally hitting your inbox, but STAY TUNED for full details this week on The Desire Map Goal-setting Retreat in gorgeous St. Petersburg, January 26-28 AND my fantabulous Cyber Monday Special on Let That S%#t Go!, a 5-week teleclass that gets you clear on What You Want, Why You Don’t Have It, and How To Get It (starts January 2018).

The 12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 10

It’s Mindset Monday! A few months ago I decided to focus solely on mindset coaching. Regardless of your end goal (work, relationship, weight, etc.), Getting Your Mind Right is Job 1.

I know from wence I speak. I stopped blocking my own path and worked through an old (and wrong!) limiting belief that being an entrepreneur was not for me. It was based on a business class that I took 30 years ago! Had to Let That S%#t Go! and everything changed. Business opportunities come in continuously and I’m having a blast creating coaching opportunities for fabulous women!

Unfortunately it’s not a one and done. There may be a few totally Zen people in the world, but most of us need reminders. Prayer, meditation, coaching, desire mapping, quotes, books are some of my go-tos and my latest resource: a manifesto. I love it so much I’ve done one for business and personal and highly recommend your doing one. It’s a great North Star for keeping yourself on track.

On the 10th Day of Thanksgiving, your coach is giving you: permission to spend 30-45 minutes (don’t over-think it) with yourself, creating your personal manifesto. Here’s an article with instructions, It’s also helpful to jot down your priorities, your dreams/fantasies, and what you want to be remembered for. Don’t over-think, judge, or write to impress. Let it flow. Use Wordswag or Canva to make it cute.

The entry period for The Hyggë Box ends at midnight. I hope you win! 😊 Here’s my personal manifesto.


The 12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 9

Joyful Sunday, Everyone! I hope that all of you have at least one day (or part of a day) that you are able to simply chill. For me that’s usually Sunday and winter is my season of chill…pun intended. 😊 I’m less and less inclined to leave my home and prefer being curled up in my favorite lounge-wear sipping warm drinks in total dial-down mode.

Have you heard about the Danish philosophy of hyggë? It caters wonderfully to this lifestyle:

“Pronounced “hoo-ga,” this Danish concept cannot be translated to one single word but encompasses a feeling of cozy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. If you’ve ever enjoyed reading a book indoors on a rainy Sunday or a cup of hot cocoa on a snow day you’ve experienced hygge without even knowing it.” See the full article below.

Even if your life only allows for a ‘hyggë’ hour, Take. That. Hour. It’s important. It’s necessary. It’s life-sustaining.

And to provide a little inspiration for you to do so, On the 9th day of Thanksgiving, your coach is gifting one of you: A Box of Chill and Comfort that includes Fortnum and Mason teabags, Savannah Bee Co. Lavender Honey, and a cozy pair of  Thou Art The Bomb socks. Let me tell you, this tea and the honey are YUMMY! There will be a drawing because I only have one box. You have until midnight Monday to submit your name.


The 12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 8

Woo Hoo! I’ve been having so much fun traipsing the streets of Savannah today that I almost forgot to send Day 8. And that just so happens to connect to today’s theme: laughter!

“A good laugh heals a lot of hurts.” ~ Madeleine L’Engle

On the 8th Day of Thanksgiving, your coach is gifting you: 3 funny videos, two of which you may have caught on my FB page of me with my partner in fun, Sharon Sherrod aka Lucy. I wish there was video of us in the Laughter Yoga class we visited! LOL We’ll be back next week with a new one. 😊

I can so relate to this yoga video. 😂😂

12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 7


Happy Friday, Ya’ll! I’m in Savannah, Ga, one of my favorite cities, hanging out with Mr. Washington and a couple he knows from his old work days. Hope you’re doing something fun for yourself too!

I thought it would be good to provide some ‘get you going’ background music for your weekend, so on the 7th day of Thanksgiving your coach is gifting you: my booty-shaking playlist with your choice to download from iTunes or Spotify.

Get your dance on! 💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾

12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 6

We’re midway through my 12 Days of Thanksgiving. I’m loving the emails you’re sending about how much you’re enjoying it!

I received two lovely quotes to add to my collection:

“However awful the storm of my disappointment, it’s a response that belongs to me. It’s my heart, after all. My territory, my kingdom. And since I’m the only one with authority to give it away, I can also take it back.” (sent by Jasmine Pruitt)

“My recipe for life is not being afraid of myself, afraid of what I think or of my opinions.” ― Eartha Kitt (sent by Malinda T. White)

Thank you, Ladies!

During the holiday season, some of you may spend some of your time catching up on missed TV. I’m a professed and proud TV fanatic. Judge me if you choose, tv snobs. LOL! Nothing’s more interesting to me than human drama and the small screen does an excellent job of mirroring it, especially now during the platinum age of television.

Soooo…On the 6th Day of Thanksgiving, your coach is gifting you: The Definitive (but not exhaustive) List of My Fave TV Shows. These are mostly shows you may not have heard about or watched.

Happy Watching!

12 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 5

Hello! Hello! Hello! It’s Day 5 and it’s Word About It Wednesday. Words have always been a huge part of what super-fuels me. Books were my baby bottle and I don’t leave home without one. Great sermons, Super Soul Sunday and Broadway plays are a few of my word jams. What I love most about my husband is his conversation. I’m ALL about the words and a quote fanatic.

On the 5th day of Thanksgiving, your coach is gifting you: an e-book of some of my favorite quotes. Hope you enjoy them!

Words For Your Journey cReneCoach Fave Quotes

Oops! I left off two additional winners of the Day 4 free hour of coaching: Tonya Allen and Rosemary Noe. YAY for them!

Hope everyone is enjoying a great week!
