Monday Motivation - I know what I want and I'm taking steps to get it.


Happy Monday Reader!

We're back for a new affirmation to power us through the week.

Our goals and dreams can seem really far away sometimes, can't they? There are so many day to day tasks that consume the bulk of our time & energy. It can be hard to carve out time to work on long term goals. It can feel pointless or futile.

But you know I'm a fan of reminding you that small progress is still progress, so this week we have a variation on that theme:

"I know what I want and I'm taking steps to get it."

Sometimes it's a big step to even admit to ourselves what we want.

Maybe we want a partner who says they love us with their words as well as their actions.

Maybe we want a completely different career path than the one we're currently on.

Maybe we actually want to make a million dollars in a year, even though everyone around us believes millionaires are fundamentally bad people. (Or maybe I'm projecting here....😉 )

Maybe we just want to take a damn vacation without being interrupted by work for once.

Whatever your dream is, you don't need to justify it to me or anyone else. Sometimes we just want what we want. It can be harder (and definitely more exhausting) to keep trying to deny it.

So acknowledge whatever huge desire you have. And maybe this week, the steps you take to get it are simply learning to be ok with wanting that. With knowing you're not a broken or silly person for wanting it.

This week we're embracing our ambitions by repeating 21x every day "I know what I want and I'm taking steps to get it."

And if you don't actually know what you want? Or admitting it seems way too scary & hard? Please reach out and we'll schedule time to chat about it! Hit reply or pick a time on my calendar here. I always have time for you. ❤️


As always, affirmations work best when you truly believe them. They need to resonate with you and feel achievable. So feel free to modify any I suggest, or develop entirely new ones!

Say them as long as you want. I'm sharing a new affirmation each week, but that doesn't mean you have to switch it up each week unless it feels right. You can add new ones as often as you want and have as many as you want. You can say a different affirmation every day, or at different times of the day. You choose!

I'd love to hear the impact it has! (But if you decide affirmations are not for you, click here to be removed from this weekly email.)

I hope this affirmation sets you up for a kick ass week and I'll see you next Monday for a new one to try!

Breathe deep. Drink plenty of water. You got this!

Happy Monday Reader! We interrupt this regularly scheduled broadcast to bring you an important request. I could really use your help to grow my business! You've been here a while, so you know I'm passionate about helping people understand themselves, value themselves & their time, and protect their time. I'm happy to talk about this stuff all the time, for free. But unfortunately, we live under capitalism and I have to keep my freeloader cat in treats and kibbles. And that's NOT free! Said...

Happy Monday Reader! Last week I told you about starting the 100 Day Goal Journal, and I'm happy to report I haven't given up yet! I know, that might not seem like much of a win, but as your coach I know it's important to celebrate every success, no matter how small. I've completed a full 10 day cycle now. I will admit that results so far are mixed because being on vacation for nearly a week made it way more difficult to follow through. So I did not achieve my initial 10-day goal, but I was...

Hello Reader! We'll be at Equal Minded Café at 4327 Troost Ave, KCMO from 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, June 27. There is no charge to attend the networking event, just like before, but please plan to purchase a beverage to support our host business. (Pro tip--they have an amazing chai at Equal Minded!) A couple reminders: Our host doesn't offer food during the week, so we can bring dinner with us if needed. Free parking is available on both sides of the street in front of the business. Please...
