Week 45 – Words of Comfort: A loving reminder of truth


I’m off to Tampa this week for the last I Can Do It conference of the year (we’ll be coming to Vancouver next year!).  In the meantime, we’re cooking up some terrific webstore specials for the holidays.  The sale starts on Tuesday, November 9th and will include $100 off of our popular Practice Building Workshop and a TWO FOR ONE special on each of the three card decks – Self Care Cards, Grace Cards, and My Daily Affirmation Cards.  They’ll be listed here.  I’ll be sure to post it on Facebook and Twitter when they’re up!

I’ll be live on the radio this week (11/8 at 5pm ET/2pm PT) and you can listen by visiting  You can also call to speak with me for coaching at (866) 254-1579.

Have a great week…

Topic of the Week

Words of Comfort

While going through some old computer files last week, I found an email I sent to a friend – a woman who needed love and compassion while struggling with a tough situation. Today I’m sending it to you…


Don’t worry, you’ll be okay

Slowing down is good

Wisdom simmers and steeps and grows with time

Stop pushing yourself

You are enough just as you are

There is no need to perform

Just relax

Let life unfold

You have what it takes to handle anything


Good things come from patience, not pushing

Let space and time reveal something miraculous

Trust life

Accept where you are

Right now

Stop the judgment and internal lectures

Just be here

Don’t run or think or eat or scheme

Return to yourself in this moment

Where life is perfect and peaceful and safe

This week’s video was sent in by Paula, a biology teacher from the Queensland Academy for Creative Industries. It’s called Simplicity and it’s by one of her students, Brandon Lee, with an original score by another student, Josh Beattie.  It’s a beautiful reminder – thanks Paula!  You’ll find it here.
