Bougie Girl Coaching: The Grace To Say Goodbye Without Turning Back...


It is time to say goodbye to a past that can no longer help or hurt you.

The goodbye before this one was filled with unanswered questions and pain that you thought would never end.

Eventually, the feelings of pain subsided into something a bit more manageable.

The memories which you vowed to cling onto forever are now just fuzzy snapshots from a time gone by.

They no longer apply to the new life which you have forged for yourself.

The best advice that you ever received for moving on from your past was from your elderly neighbor, Miz Ella.

"Child, you can't turn back time. So, you gotta keep it movin'. The first few steps away from a painful past are the hardest. But, slowly, your heart stops hurtin' and you are able to shuffle further and further away from it."

This is exactly what you have done. You have shuffled away from something or someone that was not meant for your higher good.

Over the years, you may wander back to that old past situation but, you never see it in the same light...and when it is time to say goodbye for a final time, you do so without sadness or regret.

Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
