Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.
- Martin Luther King Jr. 

Love Wins

In the end
When it's all said and done
Love wins

I'm not talking about sissy love
I'm talking about real love
Dig it out of the dirt
Fighting for hearts

Love wins
It throws fear out of the ring
It says, it doesn't matter
What you do
What you say
How much you fail
I love you anyway

It may take decades
It may take hours
But love wins

We think we have it figured out
We think we know how to get around the anxiety
How to eliminate the fear 
We don't

Love works
Doesn't always feel right
Sometimes feels impossible
But love will always win

In the end
I'm going to keep loving
Keep fighting
For your heart
For my heart
For their hearts

In the end
You will know
I will know
They will know

Poetry Blog

Coaching addresses the whole person. The whole complicated, impossible to put in a box, person.  

Poetry is the same way. It has structure but it dives deep into our hearts and finds its way to the core messages we tell ourselves.

On the blog, there are poems about being a dog, defining coaching, learning to rest, finding a new perspective, and several about just being yourself!

We'd love to hear your commentary about our poetry.

From the Blog: What Are You Fighting For?

I saw the new Harry Potter movie tonight with my teenage daughter. A must see. Really.

I know this happens in real life too—but there is just something about movies where you get to see people living out of their true selves—really experiencing their fear but deciding to face it and do what they must do for those that they love.

It makes me think of Braveheart—another story of good and evil with betrayal, death of a hero, and freedom winning in the end.

I was asked who I admired the other day. Living or dead. Real or fictional. The first name that hit me was William Wallace. I tried to push it out to come up with a "better" name but my sub conscience wouldn't have it—William Wallace was the choice. Then came the follow-up questions: what is it that you admire? What are the specific traits. What inspires you about this person? What resonates with you?

Try this yourself with someone you admire, my answers are below:

How's That Working For You?

We tend to do the same things over and over again in our lives expecting different results. We chase the dreams of our 20s only to find in our 40s that none of those things really mattered. What we really wanted was a life of joy. A life of friendship. A life of adventure.

Instead, we find ourselves living for someone else's idea of a perfect life.
