The Power of Now (what I was saying)

I will admit that this topic has me a bit stumped. It is part of a blog hop of ICA students and graduates. Every month a group of us select a topic – that usually is the easy part. Then drawing from our unique perspectives as coaches and our various specialties, we write something on the topic.

Up to this point, I’ve found the topics fairly ‘easy’ to write about. At least as easy as writing comes to me! This topic though, The Power Of Now, seems so big I’m not sure how to tackle it. And maybe that is the point – what really is The Power of Now? What does it mean? Why should I care about it as a coach or as a client?


How do you measure a year?

2011 had 12 months, 365 days, 8760 hours, 525,600 minutes – just like 3 out of every 4 years. (2012 being leap year has 366 days….)

A lot of those minutes were spent sleeping. So where did the rest of them go? How did the year go by so fast in some regards, and yet in retrospect seem so long in others? This could create an entire philosophical discourse on “What is time?”


Moving Past Fear – ICA Blog Hop

I have a fear of dentists. It started when I was young and ended up in the dentist chair at night with an emergency that resulted in a tooth being pulled. It hurt and I cried. Well, I was only 5 years old. That memory came back in force the last couple of weeks when I found myself back in a dental chair with the same searing pain and found tears running down my face, again – and I’m no longer 5 years old! This time it was the need for a root canal that had to be made over two visits. Both were extremely painful.


Thanksgiving and Gratitude

Thanksgiving is upon us here in the USA. This year we have been able to celebrate Thanksgiving twice. We were with dear friends in Canada in October and now with friends and neighbors. While this year has had some challenges for us, and for many others, we are truly thankful for all the friends and family we have. My family live quite far away and as we’ve gotten older, my siblings tend to want to create their own family traditions. My husband, being Canadian, has embraced Thanksgiving in November, while his family celebrates in October. So our tradition has evolved to involve friends and neighbors.


Talking, Word Press and Dancing

One of my coaching clients expressed dismay when I talked to her about practicing her speech. “Why do I have to practice? It is just talking and I know how to talk.”

Like so many things in life, we think that because we can do something, then doing that something just a bit differently should be easy! Why should it be so hard? That aspect for me is designing this web site. I know how to type, I’ve taken a couple of programming courses, and WordPress is supposed to be ‘easy to use’ – so why does it take so darn long to do anything? Because of course, that my ‘something’ of a skill needs to be honed in a different way and that honing takes time.
