Is It Too Late For You?

At Lisbon Airport saying good-bye to Vovo (“granny” in Portuguese)

Dearest ButterflyMoms,

Successful people, just like successful businesses, know EXACTLY who they are, who they serve and what their goals are. Without knowing these things a lot of time gets spent trying to figure out which fire to put out and simply re-inventing the wheel. In other words there is a lot of constant chaos. As many of us know it is completely exhausting to live this way!

If we don’t know what we stand for, we spend our whole lives sitting and waiting for the “right ___________” (fill in the blank)

a) time   b) opportunity  c) job  d) mate  e) sign  f) qualifications   g) person   h) amount of money.

On my list is to spend more time with the people who make my heart sing and feed my soul! :)

We are all guilty of this at some point in our lives. It is a fabulous way to increase the pain in your life, if you are into that! So if you are into that keep on truckin’! If you want “better”, and chances are that if you are reading this you do indeed want better, here is a way you can do “better”…

Part of what I like to do, regardless if you are my coaching client or not, is to ignite your soul! Next week is already March and if you have not yet done your life design for 2013 here is your second chance. It’s easier than you think. In order for you to stop chasing your tail, and start living your life from total alignment, take a precious few minutes and answer the following five simple questions…

 

*  WHAT TRULY FEEDS YOUR SOUL? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO LEARN? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACCOMPLISH? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO GIVE? 

 

*  WHAT DO YOU WANT TO RECEIVE?

Isabella drew this at age 4 here in Portugal. Artists run in her dad’s side of the family. Her grandfather, Herb, was the head of the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art in NY. He did the King Tut exhibit! :)!

Answer them right now because this blog self-destructs for you in 30 minutes from when you first read it. (Ok, it really doesn’t but if you act like it will, the sense of urgency will override any of life’s dangly-annoying-get-you-nowhere to do’s. So just do it within 30 minutes).

Use markers, pretty pens, fun paper and have a blast writing your unique answers. Please don’t filter because that crushes your creativity, just write whatever comes and then go back and give your answers a little shape. Once you have your top answers, find a fun way to put them into your calendar. Start the little steps that will get you to the life you dream… it does not happen any other way. Whatever you focus on you will get more of. Full stop (as the Brits say)!

Biking and moving my body more with my kids are also on my list for 2013!

Biking and moving my body more with my kids are also on my list for 2013! This is what January looks like in Portugal! NICE!!!!!!

The end of 2013 is going to come any way. It will either come with you having done this or with you not. Which life would you prefer? Don’t tell me… just go out and live it! We will know what you chose by looking at your life! 🙂

Great big hugs,

Mariaaaaaaaaaa

Sometimes I'm soooo into the doing that I forget to do  it with JOY so being HAPPY is my main goal of 2013. Many people think that is nuts but because it is so basic, many of us assume wrongly that we already are. I was one of those people.

WHAT IS BUTTERFLYMOMS?
ButterflyMoms is a community of people who realize they are souls first and human being second. They want to explore more about themselves, to find out what makes them happy and how they can lead a life of purpose. It is simply about FEEDING YOUR SOUL. Although it has the name “MOMS” in the title it is more about being nurturing to your own transformation, as the butterfly is to its own metamorphosis. This community is led by Maria Salomão-Schmidt whose transformation was ignited by the birth and death of her BELOVED thirteen month old daughter Sophia (Sophalicious), the original butterfly.

*Every Friday Morning, as a way of honoring her daughter Sophia’s soul, Maria writes the weekly BUTTERFLYMOMS BLOG. Hundreds of people read it every week to feed their souls. Maria started writing the blog in May 2009 and has written EVERY Friday since. Maria is a Reiki master and every time you read it you are showered with healing love.  Tell your friends… https://butterflymoms.wordpress.com and spread the love!!! FEED YOUR SOUL!!!!!

  1. Great reminder to stop and see where you’re at after the first couple of months of 2013. It seems like such a magical year. Glad that you’re taking the time to really be happy and to enjoy where you’re at.
