Buttons Pushed

Last week I had a conversation with a good friend who shared a smart (and effective) exercise she uses to re-center herself when she gets her buttons pushed. As I listened to her describe the process, I knew I had to share it with you.

The next time you get your buttons pushed and you find yourself fixated on a negative experience, in the middle of a shame attack, or ruminating about something that's upset you, try this. Take out four pieces of paper and put one of the following four sentence stems on the top of each sheet:


1. I know I'm acting in alignment with my Highest Self when I...

2. The things that knock me out of alignment are...

3. When I'm out of alignment, the behaviors I engage in are...

4. The best actions for me to take to get back in line with my Highest Self are...

Once you have each sentence stem listed on a separate piece of paper, set aside twenty minutes to do a "mind dump" for each category. List lots of examples for each one. What do you do when you're at your best? How do you think? What actions do you take? What kinds of situations knock you off track? And then, what habits or behaviors do you engage in that keep you off track and feeling stuck? Finally, what do you do that helps you to re-center so you can get back in alignment with your Highest Self?

I intended to give you examples for each category but, after doing the exercise myself, I discovered that it's better not to have any preconceived ideas. They interfere with the process. So, let yourself go, write down whatever thoughts or ideas come to mind, and when you're done, I'm sure you'll learn something valuable about yourself. I know I did. I'll give you a way to share your experience in this week's Take Action Challenge. Have fun!

Take Action Challenge

Don't wait to get your buttons pushed before doing this exercise. Instead, give yourself the gift of twenty minutes and use what you learn to respond differently the next time you're faced with a challenge. I'll post each individual sentence stem on my facebook page this week and invite you to share your ideas. But, don't look until you've done the exercise yourself . And be sure to use what you learn to keep yourself empowered and on track! 

This week's video is of the first woman on Rolling Stone's Guitar God list. I may have shared it long ago in a newsletter, but it's worth seeing again. She's fantastic! If you loved the movie August Rush, you'll recognize the playing style. Enjoy! You'll find it here.

Spring Cleaning: Make room for something new

As we enter spring here in the Northeast, it seems like a great time for a "Clean Up Week" to motivate you to purge, clean, or organize your space so you can welcome in new beginnings. So this week, here are four ways to do just that...

1. Recycle - Go through old magazines, books, or catalogs and get rid of them. Bring the magazines to a doctor's office, hair salon, or health club. Fill the recycling bin with outdated catalogs. Donate books to your local library or church for an upcoming sale. There are plenty of organizations that take used books. For example, we have gotbooks.com here in Mass., and they'll pick them up from your home or office. To find an organization near you, all you need to do is put "book giveaway + your town and state" in Google for ideas.

2. Trade Treasures - Years ago my girlfriends and I would gather for a give-away party where we'd bring clothes, jewelry, household items, etc., to trade with one another. Each of us would always find a treasure in someone else's lot and we made it a fun social gathering to boot! Get together with moms and dads from the neighborhood, coworkers, or use your Life Makeover Group to organize a "Trade Treasures" party.


3. Donate - This is a great time to go through clothes or household items with an eye for sharing the wealth with those in need. We all have things that we no longer use that could be life changing for someone else. Your old suits or dresses could give someone a new outfit for a job interview. Your used washing machine may be a blessing in a family's life. By the way, we've had several community members write to say that when they donate used clothes they put a Grace Card or Self-Care Card in the pocket as a surprise gift for the person who gets it. I love that idea and will be doing it myself.

4. Release Old Energy - Go through the files in your office or your contact list and let go of outdated resources, information, or old ideas. I've used this strategy for years to release the old energy tied to plans that fell through, goals that lost steam, or dreams that fizzled out because they needed to. Make the space for new business, great opportunities, or more creative ideas that make sense for who you are now.

A little spring cleaning goes a long way in making space for something great to enter your life. Consider this week's "Take Action Challenge" and enjoy a renewed sense of spaciousness and mental freedom!

Take Action Challenge

If there is something new you'd like to attract - a new job, romance, friend, more money, or clients - you'll need to make space. Choose one idea from above and work on it this week. Then, watch what shows up!

This week's video was sent to me by my mom. It's the perfect little video when you're having a bad moment or when you need a reminder of how simple it is to be happy. Thanks Mom! You can find it here.
