Life Does Get Easier When You Take It Easy!




Hello Glorious GloWomen,

I know that Life can seem stressful and tough a lot of the time and many of us are wishing and hoping it will ease up…..so I’m bringing you the Good News! 😊

If you’re wishing Life would get easier, or there’s got to be an easier way…then you’re absolutely right!

But here’s the key –

❤️ You've got to take it easy! ❤️

Now I don’t mean sitting back with your feet up and a cocktail (although heck, why not, if you can – enJOY!)
But it’s more about lightening UP on YourSelf.

Because Your Wonderful Life is what YOU make it. So instead of being so hard on YourSelf for all your perceived shortcomings and for all the things you haven’t done….rather give YourSelf a huge pat on the back for all the wonderful things You HAVE created and shared!

Appreciating and enCouraging ourselves and others does so much more to allow the Good Stuff to flow!

The more we stress out over Life, the more stressful it gets....

But you’ll find Life is SO much easier when You choose to have FUN while you’re getting it done! 😊


So why not choose to TAKE IT EASY, wherever you are - step out lightly, fill your heart with Love, SMILE with the world and Get Your Glow ON! ❤️
(Because really – do you wanna stress out and struggle today or any other day? Nah, I didn’t think so!)

With Love and Joy,

Respect Your Boundaries and Get Your Glow ON!




Hello Glorious GloWomen,

An issue that comes up often for us and challenges most of the women I coach and mentor, is maintaining respectful and healthy personal boundaries. And this can bring up a lot of guilt and resentment.

As women we often feel uncomfortable with setting boundaries and standing up for what we want, if it means saying “No” to others. We’ve been brought up over centuries to be “nice” and helpful and kind to others – we’re people-pleasers,  we don’t want to be unkind!

But there’s a vast difference between being kind and being a pushover! When we let others trample over us, we’re not being kind to ourselves! We mutter to ourselves that it’s unacceptable, we discuss it with our friends and they agree it’s unacceptable - and then we go off… and accept it again! (Yes, been there, I’m talking from experience here. As I always do!
😊)

Sometimes we need to say NO to others, if it means saying YES to ourselves.
We do all know instinctively what our boundaries are (it’s apparent to us when others are pushing against them – it’s uncomfortable and we want to shout NO, but often we just don’t!) We don’t always have enough faith in ourselves to stick to our boundaries - we need to believe in ourselves a lot more!

Standing UP for what you want is an affirmation of WHO YOU ARE and you don’t need to apologise or feel guilty. You emPower YourSelf when you learn to become comfortable with BEING who you are and you keep showing UP for YourSelf. And that means loving and respecting YourSelf enough to stand UP for Wonderful You!

We can’t blame others for not respecting our boundaries, when we’re not respecting them ourselves 😊

And the wonderful thing is – that as soon as we do, as soon as we decide what’s important to us and we respect that, others respect it too! (And those who don’t either fall away, or learn to deal with it!)

So here’s to being brave enough to love and respect ourselves and what’s important to us!
With Love, Courage and Self-Respect,

Nurturing the Nurturers GloWoman workshop with Herzlia Constantia Primary



We rocked an awesome Get Your Glow ON - Nurturing the Nurturers session with the staff of Herzlia Constantia Primary on a Friday afternoon - inspiration, motivation, encouragement, support, yummy eats and lots of laughter.

I feel beyond blessed to be able to share what I do ❤️

My heartfelt gratitude to Jos Horwitz, Principal and Jane Avis, Deputy Principal for making this happen.

With Jane Avis and Jos Horwitz (dressed as the Headboy for Purim!)


I developed the Get Your Glow ON - Nurturing the Nurturers Staff Support Program to support women teachers and educational staff, who are always giving so much of themselves, both physically and emotionally – to their families and to their students, but are not so good at giving to themselves - which can leave them depleted, heading for burnout and low on glow!

This UPlifting program supports women teachers with tools, tips and techniques to help them to reconnect to the best in themselves, in order to share the best of themselves and to inspire our future leaders, heroes and innovators.
It’s hard to be passionate, enthusiastic and inspiring when you’re not feeling enthusiastic and inspired!
😊

The sessions are inspiring and fun and we do it in “tea party” style with a table of eats and tea and coffee so it’s very relaxed and doesn’t feel like “work”.  They are insightful thought-sharing sessions and are getting great feedback from teachers, I'm thrilled to report! 🙏


We rocked our Attitude of Gratitude! This is a gratitude note to everyone, from one of the teachers in the workshop ❤️



Here's to Spreading the Glow as faaaaaar as it can GO! When we Get our Glow ON, we CAN light UP our world!



With Love and Encouragement,


Note to self:It's not personal, it's not serious, Lighten UP!





When we start taking Life too seriously, when we start taking Life to personally, when we forget that Life is not a melodrama, we can find ourselves heading down the Victim Highway to Misery Road….


I had a little laugh at myself recently. I had to give myself a little talking to when a prospective client who wanted my writing services, disregarded my proposal and made me such a ridiculous offer that I started getting all huffy and pissy (not to the prospective client, but the silent mutterings and stewing that comes with not expressing feelings and feeling more and more sorry for yourself). 😩

You might relate here and know the feeling…

“Why the f*** should they, a large and successful corporation, think it’s ok for them to make a fortune, but I have to eat cat food. Grump grump….grumble…stew….stew… Don’t talk to me about your luxury sportscar when I can’t even afford to have my 13 year old car serviced! I am an excellent writer with 30 years of professional writing experience. How dare they insult me with such an offer. I’m over it. Over it!”



And the funny thing was – when I decided I was over it….I realised I was the one who had turned it in an issue! I was the one who had taken offence…. They weren’t insulting “me”.  It wasn’t personal – but I had taken it personally!



This wasn’t even about me. This is just the way they do business. They weren’t expecting me to eat cat food! And again, I realised that I needed to step back into my power… to choose!



When I found myself giggling at the ridiculousness of their offer, I realised once again that Life is so much easier played as a game. And I’m really good at playing! 😄



So when I moved out of my serious, pissy, angry, huffing and puffing, victim-like mentality and remembered who I was and what I could do – it stopped bothering me. I could see the funny side!



I know what I offer and I know what I’m worth. And I’ve set my intention not to accept anything less and I am serious about that!



I’m not allowing the world to dictate to me who I am, or how I feel.

It’s UP to me to choose. And I choose Love, Abundance and JOY!

If it’s going to be, it’s UP to me!



So here’s to remembering to Lighten UP, laugh at ourselves and to not taking Life too personally or too seriously. Here’s to remembering who we are, what we offer, what we are prepared to accept – and then to stepping out lightly to create and enJOY the Good Stuff and Get our Glow ON!


With Love,
