Hey Team....

Do you have times when you feel like you are alone and not connecting with anybody around you?

Well, if you do, it is not uncommon.

The questions we have to ask are:

1. Do we want/ need to be alone in this phase of life?

2. Is this intentional?

3. Am I causing this reaction?

4. Have I surrounded myself with the right people?

I find these to be very important questions to ask because sometimes we find ourselves in situations- and we are not sure WHY or HOW we got into them!

Here is what we must understand.....

In life, we often cause our situations... sometimes consciously....sometimes subconsciously....

Can you relate?

But realize this.... 

Life is about seasons...

And in those seasons, there are times when you NEED to be alone... there are also times when you need to be WITH THE PACK...

As you find your PACK, make sure you have people around you that are not just telling you and feeding you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. 

We need people to shoot us straight.....

We need people to let us know when we are off path.....

We need people that can help us see our blindspots....

That is the Power of the Pack....

If you want to get reconnected with your PACK... it is crucial that you open yourself up....

Allow people to help you... be open to it.

Allow people to be open with you... be open.

Allow yourself to put your guard down... be open.

In a time where we want so badly to trust others... how often do we find ourselves pulling back on what we actually want?

If you want trust, you must trust.

If you want security, you must provide security.

If you want respect, you must give respect.

You see?

Life is a series of reactions. 

So, if you want CONNECTION, you must give CONNECTION.

Authentic. Real. Non-Scripted/ Choreographed Connection.

You will feel exposed if you are not used to it anyway.

You may feel even a bit "wimpy" at first... do it anyway.

You may even feel more vulnerable and "at-risk" than you have felt in a really long time... do it anyway!

Behind this "open-ness" is great connection and a feeling of complete liberation!


Let's GO!

Your Coach,
