Persistence: Perfecting the Routine in 2016

Sky Valley Healing Arts

Persistence is a very important word in my life. Each day that I wake, each moment is about persisting to the next.

My daughter starts the day off, her persistence to wake me, snuggle, read, talk, and relate is what the morning is all about.  It’s amazing how each day can become like the last, but how each moment really is only captured in that time and will never be experienced again. When I look at my daughter, I can see the way in which her brain works.  It’s all about the routine, but with ever-changing focus.  Today we get up, we eat breakfast, we get ready for school,  and we feed the chickens.  Each day something new is added: she reads a new book, learns to skate, becomes more independent.  In these moments she never looks back, she never wonders what she did wrong yesterday, who doesn’t like her, she is just building on her experiences and persists at growing without even knowing it. 

I’ve learned so much from her, because my persistence has mainly involved succeeding, fullfilling expectations, and self-growth.  I find that my persistence begins in the many routine actions that occur within the simplicity of life, and my willingness to change on a continuous basis keeps me growing while embracing the routine.

Personalities that I encounter in each of my moments as a mother, wife, doctor, and friend, create revelations on my desire to persist in life and become a better person. I don’t want to look back and remember every little thing I did wrong, or who rejected me, or what I haven’t done.  I want to live in that present routine with hopeful persistence and know that I can learn just like my daughter, and in truth open and create possibilities in the future.  In my encounter with patients, I realize so many people are held back by the past, by the circumstances that they could not control when they were children and even adults, the guilt, blame, and self-deprecation that makes it impossible to move forward.  The routines, the stress, and the trials of life make it hard to persist with desire.

This is one of the reasons I created my online coaching program Get It Back.  I love working one-on-one with people to help them meet their goals, in both physical health and mindset.  Discovering your true nature, how your brain sees the world, and how you may be completely out of sync with your true nature, and then creating a road map to bring you back is all about persistence.  Each day I meet people who have the capacity for great things, but are holding themselves back based on past decisions, mistakes, and pre conceptions made by others. I could even tell you that truth and say I'm one of those people. 

You (and I)  have the choice to let go of these myths, and move into our true nature. Choice forms our every movement in life.  I don’t know what choices my daughter will make as she grows, but I know the choices I make will guide her, good or bad.  I don’t know who she will become, what she will strive for, or whom she will give her love to, but I do know that my love and acceptance of her learning process will direct her choices. 

You have more power than you know, you have the choice to learn something from this moment, and persist on to the next, making it all that more exciting. (A great interview with motivational queen Lisa Nichols inspired me for this blog)  Take solace in the routine, and know that this moment will never be here again.  I chose to give of my heart, listen to others, and love without expectations and this is my hope for everyone I meet in this year and the next.  

Here is to an amazing 2016, and to finding perfection in your routine!  



Hardwiring Happiness? Get Present

Sky Valley Healing Arts

This quote hangs in my office to remind me that I must love what I do to be truly happy and successful.

One of my favorite podcasts is Lewis Howe's School of Greatness.  It seems most times I listen to him, I get great tidbits on mindset shifts,  but I tend to be driving down the road and I don't always have the time to make notes.  However, being in the middle of creating my Motherhood Mindset Movement: a free 2 week email series on my top 15 traits or habits we need to develop in mothering ourselves, our children, and others in our lives, there was one podcast that I literally listened to over and over again.  It's all about the present mindset, and getting present within yourself. 

The guest that really intrigued me on this certain topic was Dr. Rick Hanson, Ph.D. a best selling author on neuroscience and happiness.   Happiness could mean a million different things to a million different people, with examples of getting a better job, a better body, a happy marriage, a family etc, but those are future living ideas- when I get enough, I will be happy.

His book Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence, really gets into happiness in the context of experiencing the present moment, something most of us don't do well, if at all.   He talks about how people are really caught up in the million dollar moments, but what about being grateful for the everyday moments?  

Perhaps living in the present could cultivate an unconditional sense of enoughness in life. Conscensely experiencing these present moments can help to bring contentment, forgiveness, and love into our lives.  

H.E.A.L (stands for)

  1.  Have the experience: Install it into your brain.

  2.  Enrich the experience: Stay with it, letting it become bigger. 

  3.  Absorb the experience: Be changed by it. 

  4.  Link the experience to the present moment and the sense of contentment.

If living in the present is difficult for you to do, and you are feeling stuck, stressed out, or just need a uplifting look into how getting present could make you happier, I would highly recommend listening to the podcast, then join me in my #motherhoodmindset series where I get deeper into my personal experiences as a future dweller. I'm sure you can guess that getting present is one of my top mindsets!
