The holidays can be a stressful time.  For many it can be an over-stuffed calendar and a mega-to-do list.  For others the holidays it may be intense feeling of grief or loneliness that haunts us.  For most, we tend to raise the bar super-hero high which means we spend our time planning and doing and less time enjoying and savoring. 

So how do we stay present and not get hijacked by reliving the past or constantly thinking about the future.  How do we stay in the moment?  Better yet, how do we ENJOY that moment?

In this podcast, Cheri gives you 5 tips you can use anytime to bring you into your body and into the present moment.  When you shift your thoughts and attention to the present, stress often simply fades away.  And isn't that the goal; to enjoy the holidays and create as many moments as possible that are stress-free and enjoyable.

Ep 17: You Gotta Break a Few Eggs to Make an Omelet

Whenever we create anything . . . things are gonna get messy.  It's actually the creative process itself . . . giving birth to something new and exciting . . . that causes this wonderful and sometimes scary mess.  Like the saying goes, you have to break a few eggs if you want to eat an omelet.  And so it is with creating our ideal lives. 

What does it mean to "create" your life?  It means you are deliberate and intentional about what you are, what you have and what you do.  It means you don't live by default, but rather intentionally creating how you spend your thoughts, your money, your time and your energy. 

In this podcast, Cheri goes through what she feels are the five steps of the creative process.  You can apply these steps to anything, but she gives you countless examples of using them to create a beautiful life.  But perhaps just as important as the creative process, she give you three steps to navigate the chaos and messiness that will happen when you decide to step up and live a life that has more of what you truly want.

She helps you embrace the messiness of deliberating being creative!
