Cute love birds via
I've been doing some serious reflecting while writing my book over the past few months and as a gut girl I've had this feeling that won't go away... so I'm listening.
Something keeps telling me to reach out to other people who's parents are dealing with dementia. Ironically I've been receiving emails and phone calls from friends or friends-of-friends over the past couple of weeks who are struggling with this or are just starting out right now.
A sign perhaps? I say, yeah.
So I decided it's time to throw something out there.
I think most of you know by now that my mom suffers from dementia. She started loosing her memory at a fairly young age when she was only 65. And before that we watched my grandmother do the same however she was in her 80's which made it a little bit easier to accept yet not uncomplicated by any means.
I know for me it's been an 8 year roller coaster ride of emotions, unanswered questions and struggle trying to figure out how to help take care of my family, grieving the loss of my mother while not forgetting myself along the way.
At the same time I've had some amazing realizations and incredible movements with my mom that wouldn't have been noticed or even happened if it wasn't for her memory loss journey. Like simply just holding her hand like she always held mine. Those I am grateful for.
I'm one of those people that believes there's a reason we have hard stuff come up in our lives and I keep thinking that there's a reason my family has been on this crazy ride and I'm wondering if there's a way to turn something not so fun into something meaningful.
So instead of asking why is this happening or I really wish I could make my mom's memory come back I decided to see how I can offer support and help other people like me who might be going through the same thing.
So here it is.
I'm offering a FREE COACHING SESSION to anyone who's looking for help and support with parents who suffer from dementia.
Will you help me spread the word?
Here's how it's gonna work:
1. If you or someone you know would like to book one of my free dementia support coaching sessions just email me and let me know that you want in!
2. Then I'll share with you the days/times that I have available and you'll pick the one that works best.
3. Once scheduled then we'll hop on the phone for a 30 min call and dive in. Since coaching session take place via the phone or Skype you can be located anywhere in the country. Pretty cool right?
4. Like with all of my coaching all you need to do is show up. You talk openly. I listen deeply. I promise to give you everything I got and support you in any way that I can.
5. After your session I'll email you with your what's next options and you can decide if you're all good or if you would like more from me. No catch. No obligation. Just love and support.
If you have ANY questions please send 'em my way.
I know for me having a support network is what keeps myself in check when things feel overwhelming, sad, or unknown. And sometimes all I need is someone to listen who understands. Don't we all. ;)
Thank you so much for helping me spread the word because honestly, you know people that I don't and word of mouth is the best way to form a trusting connection.
As always thank you for being a part of this Big-Hearted community!

I hope you've had a beautiful holiday with family + friends!
Before the clock strikes 12 I wanted to invite you to take a moment to look back on 2014 a little differently. Instead of counting the pounds you lost or gained, the promises you kept or broke or the things you did or didn't do…
How about if we check out the stuff that really matters.
* The hugs + smiles shared.
* The number of times you laughed and cried and celebrated.
* The memorable conversations with people you love or strangers you just met for a moment.
* The times you pushed past your comfort zone or did something you thought you could never do.
This year give yourself permission to just let it be what it was. The good. The bad. The awesome. Because it's not really about what you did or didn’t do.
It’s about the moments.
The memories. The conversations.
And people we spend our time with along the way.
Cheers to you as you ring in the New Year!
