This program has forced me to think about what I really want in my life. I've added some great resources to my personal toolbox. Thank you!

“Louise creates an environment of acceptance and trust.
As a person who usually steps back and blends in, I found myself moved to actively participate and discover myself and immerse myself in the content.” ~ Angela R
Louise has helped me let the negative things go and concentrate on all the wonderful people and events which fill my life. And for that, I am very GRATEFUL! ~ Deirdre Pringle
“My sample coaching session with Louise was amazing! I love that she forces you to get uncomfortable and dig deep into the root of what is potentially holding you back and gives you tidbits to help you shift your thinking so you can manifest anything your heart desires."

Lately, when people ask me what I do I have been catching myself saying I am kind of, sort of…semi-retired?
How did THAT happen? A few months ago, I would have said “I am a part-time entrepreneur” yet now, it seems more fitting to say “semi-retired”. Is it an age thing? Can it be because being a grandmother is a big priority (we have grandbaby number two on the way next year) ?
Although, it could be a myriad of things like my new penchant for bird watching & napping. Maybe it’s the fact that everyone seems like such a ‘nice young person’ to me, or that my hubby just hit the big SIX-OH !
I guess it doesn't really matter. As much as I feel that I am softening in some ways, I am still never going to be your typical granny!
This grandma has tons of energy to run, jump and pump out some silly Zumba moves for our two-year-old granddaughter. She is an extrovert that loves the stage, a crowd and beautiful people. She models positive energy, self-love and healthy living (she tries) . She is FAR from perfet. She even may over indulge in wine (NOTE: not while caring for said grandchild), the odd curse word may surface and well… gas can be an issue (although provides giggles).
Life isn’t what we expect but it is brilliant and grand if we allow ourselves to colour outside of the lines!
My hope is that you are out there being the best imperfect version of you!
I'm being as still as I am comfortable with...
I don't meditate. I wake up every morning and go straight to "doing". Working on my multiple business projects, doing chores, spending time with my family, exercising, socializing with friends and whatever else comes up.
This last few months I have learned that when life throws a big change at me, I tend to feel like I need to continue to push through as if nothing has changed. That really doesn't work.
It was difficult to make the decision to step back from Positive Coach. This has been something I have worked very hard at for a long time; this is my "baby" per-say. However I could feel my energy around this change. I felt like I was wearing lead shoes trying to tread through my task lists. I know well enough that I will not get anywhere in that state. I also know that I won't serve you, my clients and followers in the best way I can.
So I have stepped back, at bit. (for now)
I am still posting daily in #GratefulMoments as gratitude is something I need to practice and share, one way or another!
I have kept my commitment to the Positive Panel Rogers TV Show team and have enjoyed continuing down that path (stay tuned for more news there).
I have enjoyed my new venture with being the moHost of momondays Barrie ! It serves my need to support others in their goals (speakers) and bring together our community in the most positive way.
In between this I have enjoyed just "being" and choosing to sit over a long coffee with my husband, accept invitations to new social activities, be more available to our family and most importantly, begin to take care of me. This week I have finally felt motivated to begin eating healthier and moving more, something that has caused me to gain weight and feel lethargic. I already feel more energetic!
I truly appreciate you hanging in here as I sort through this and try to continue to bring you some value along the way!
Is there an area in your life that you feel you are wearing "lead shoes" around? Can it be that you need to step back and be still for a bit?
