The Big Dig

Unique Ability Montage GR

Hello Monday.

Today I am diving into a recently rediscovered treasure, a book called, Unique Ability:  Creating the Life You Want.  I have had this book for seven years, and this is my third time diving into this process.  The premise of the book is that your Unique Ability expresses your true essence, comes to you naturally and easily, and is something that you love to engage in.

You have inside you an incredible force called “Unique Ability.” It’s a combination of your personal talents, passions, and skills. You’ve always had this ability, but you may never have stopped to clearly identify it. Few people do. ~Catherine Nomura and Julia Waller

The paradox is that which comes easiest is also the thing you may disregard, because it feels too simple and goes against any beliefs that you need to struggle or work hard for your rewards.  Unique abilities can become buried beneath skills you have learned and thought you needed to survive in this world.

I’d like to find this buried treasure.  How about you? Continue reading

Mondays More Like Sundays (Please)

December Pink Leaves

I took this photo of pink leaves dripping with moisture, at the end of my morning walk today.  I love how the salmon color stands out against the December woods. The fact that I took the time to notice and take a photograph has to do with a new schedule I am creating for myself at Soul-filled Life. Every Monday throughout 2015, I will be publishing a blog post. Meaningful Mondays. It scares me a bit to announce that.

Mondays for the past couple years have been an open day for me. It has been a day when I do not schedule clients or meetings. This habit formed from a sense that it would be helpful to leave one day open for planning and creating. Yet, I’ve noticed that Mondays, with all its emptiness, can feel more anxious than free. The creeping thoughts: You are not doing enough, Why are you working on that…work on this, or This is taking way too long.

Yesterday was different from today.  Yesterday was Sunday and it was: Continue reading
