Back in the Saddle… and Unleashing Beast Mode

It’s January 3. Kids are back in school. I’m…

“Back in the Saddle” – Aerosmith 

(Hope Aerosmith is Back in the Saddle and on tour again soon… but that’s another story.)

How are you feeling after the holiday break?

I’m not gonna lie. 2023 was a tough one.

LOTS of good things, but also, REALLY challenging.

Add in the holiday break and it left me feeling pretty foggy and frazzled.

Here’s the good news, though: I’m still here. And so are you.

Now, 2024.

What are we gonna do?

I say, it’s time we turn the tables.

You are the creator of your life, not the victim of your circumstances.

Do you believe it?

But here’s the thing: It’s not enough to have that energy today.

You (and I) have to bring that energy every. damn. day.

Challenges are gonna come.

Surprises are gonna come.

“As an introvert, my natural inclination is to retreat into solitude, a space where I rejuvenate. However, during times of change, this instinct can intensify as we switch to survival mode, compelling us to isolate further. But it’s precisely during these transformative phases that we need others the most.”

Adapt & Thrive, p. 19

I needed my partner, Megan, to help me get back to a place of clarity. Without her, you wouldn’t be receiving this email today.

Who do you have in your corner?

I hope you’ll count me among your community.

How can I help you on your journey?
