Living with Intention: Goal setting vs. Dreaming

The term “five-year plan” has been dropped into my consciousness a number of times since I hit the big 3-0. When people (mostly those who don’t know me) ask “what is your five year plan?” that I start to panic , “Oh sh*t! Was I supposed to make a five-year plan?”. […]

Energy: Burnout vs. Build Up

Where does it come from, where does it go… Where does [it] come from, Cotton Eye Joe!  I knew you were thinking it. For those of you non-90’s babies, you missed out on something special. I digress. So, while chatting with a friend over coffee, we delved into the topic of energy. We both agreed that [...]

Willpower vs. Passion

How many times have you heard that you failed because you lack willpower? The good old, ‘you just didn’t want it bad enough’? Or how about the, ‘you never applied yourself 100%’? I don’t know about you, but I hear it OFTEN. As you already know, I am a huge advocate for passion and its driving [...]

How I Found My Passion: Afterthought 1

When I wrote my last post, I was writing from a place of unadulterated excitement. Since then, a few friends have shared with me how they found their own life’s passions, and something occurred to me... It is wholly possible that my life’s passion, the thing that I love most, may be fleeting. "But Kim, [...]

How I Found My Passion

Maybe I should start with a quick distinction between finding and rediscovering. I didn’t necessarily FIND my passion. It was never lost… it has always been with me, but it somehow became hidden behind a rock of fear and an invisibility cloak of uncertainty. I just needed to rediscover and honour it. Now, let me [...]

The Long Story: Who I Am + Why I Coach

So you want the long + arduous story, eh? Okay, let’s go. WHO I AM + WHY I COACH Like I said, I love people + I adore storytelling. Storytelling, like rich conversation, carry waves of irrepressible and impalpable feelings. We are hardwired to seek patterns + meaning, and stories are just one way of [...]
