Reclaim the Woman Within

Reclaim the Woman Within

Reclaim the Woman Within

I recently hosted a series of “Reclaim the Woman Within” discussions in New Jersey. During these monthly discussions, each woman participant explored her personal connection with her inner self and then wrote her own unique story. During these sessions, I encouraged them to look deeply within to identify the areas of their lives that required special nurturing. One of the exercises that I introduced during the first meeting involved index cards. On each card were the words “I am loving; I am caring: I am worthy.” I challenged each woman to read the words and then answer the question “Why?” I continued to challenge them with the “why” question until each one was able to get to the root of why she was loving, caring or worthy. Each month, I shared a single thought-provoking quote from The Voice of Knowledge by Don Miguel Ruiz. These quotes served as a guide […]

Reclaim the Woman Within ~ Talking to Myself

Reclaim the Woman Within ~ Talking to Myself

If you are like me, you talk to yourself many times during the day. Sometimes these are just snippets of a dialogue, and at other times they are full conversations. I have found that when I pay attention to these conversations, they can be quite intriguing! Sometimes I talk to myself at the same time that I’m listening to someone else speak. This most often happens if I am irritated or bored but am reluctant to say what I’m really thinking. For instance, if I’m in a meeting, and someone is dominating the conversation by belaboring one point and not helping to move forward to a resolution, I try to control my facial expressions…but my inner dialogue includes phrases like, “I think I’m going to scream!” Or, “We talked about that LAST week. Why are we going there again?”  This is my “fret and fume” dialogue. My “fret and fume” […]

Reclaim the Woman Within ~ Something Is Hidden In Your Closet

Reclaim the Woman Within ~ Something Is Hidden In Your Closet

Open the door to your closet and take a peek. There’s something hidden in there that you have saved for special occasions. At least you thought it was for special occasions. You never really intended to wear it as much as you do. It wasn’t meant for daily use.  But somehow you find yourself reaching for it every day. And it’s not because it’s even your favorite outfit, it’s just because you feel that every day is becoming one of those “special” days. You may not think that I see it but I do. I also know why you wear it. You wear it because it’s your “superwoman cape.” You wear it because you are juggling far more than you have ever imagined you could. You take on a lot in order to make other people happy. You are always there when your friends call to vent. You are available […]

Reclaim the Woman Within ~ A Note to Overwhelmed List Keepers

Reclaim the Woman Within ~ A Note to Overwhelmed List Keepers

The days pass, and somehow your “to do” list seems to get longer rather than shorter. You pick up your list each day and think, “There’s no way I can do all of this…but I’ll try.” Then you push forward, not even stopping for meals. Instead, you mindlessly eat while standing, driving or performing some other task. Every week you try to cross off those last few items so that you can start with a fresh list the following week. But it never happens. Lists can overwhelm you, especially if you don’t accept the fact that there is ALWAYS something that needs to be done. And unless you pace yourself, you will find yourself consistently depleted without the satisfaction of accomplishment. Some people attack this by making a master list, prioritizing tasks and then assigning them to specific days of the week. Some people divide their daily list into morning […]
