ReBuild

If something needs to be ReBuilt, it generally implies it was built on the wrong foundation.  I cannot tell you how many times I put in an insane amount of money, time, energy into what I thought was building the perfect ReLationship, business, or career; only to see it all fall in a matter of months or years.  This fall comes from lack of foundation.  From the three little pigs to infamous stories in the Bible, we've been warned about the dangers of what happens when we do not build on a strong foundation and with the right materials.

A strong foundation is important for a few reasons: certainty and longevity.  A strong foundation will provide a certainty and assurance that no matter what happens in life: lost job, broken ReLationship, loss of a loved one, you're not worried because you know what you're building, building with, and building on!  Secondly a strong foundation provides longevity and legacy.  If you grew up on a shaky foundation, then it's time to break generational curses, and ensure you build something strong and sustainable that your children, grandchildren, and even friends and family can build and grow from as well.

One of the things I love about ReU is that while there aRe many reasons why ReBuilding or any other kind of Re'ing is important for life, ReU supplies the 'how' to Re.  Knowing is half the battle, doing is the other.

Peace,

RePlace

Have you ever brought in an only worn a few times pair of shoes to the store that you bought them to get another because they didn’t fit right or feel good?  Yes, we all have.  We essentially had to RePlace the old shoe with one more fitting to our style or taste.  The act of RePlacing is great because it immediately insinuates an exchange of something less for something more.  You most never hear of someone exchanging something fresh and new for something worn and torn.  Some distinct clues that it’s time to RePlace something are: when it begins to hurt us, we begin to hurt or mistreat it, or we idolize it.

Oprah once notably said, “Love doesn’t hurt.” I mean, how simple and easy to understand is that?  If it hurts, it’s not love.  Well when we feel hurt or feel we want to illicit hurt, it probably means there is no longer an exchange of love or care and needs to be exchanged for something we’ll properly care for.  Anything we mistreat, or that mistreats us isn’t worth the time and space it takes in our life and world.

Sometimes we need to RePlace something because it’s not that we hurt it, but instead we love it far more than what is healthy.  We idolize it. I once had a boyfriend that idolized the gym…it was his God.  If asked to choose between gym or me, the answer was without ReVocation “Gym.” Talk about barf.  Moderation helps ensure nothing maximizes too much of our time and space eventually needing to be RePlaced. 

Lastly, let’s not forget that some things are just irreplaceable.  A true and good friend, dedicated partner, peace of mind; these are things we cannot easily just exchange for something else. These things are earned, appreciated, cherished, and do not hurt. 

The Problem with Never Starting...

Our problem is never starting something in life.  We've all started something: working out, eating right, accomplishing goals, getting things in order, making time for ourselves, and the list goes ON.  The problem is, despite our sincere desire to continue in these various starts - we stop.  As a life coach my tagline is 'Never Stop Starting', because I identified early on that no client lacked the desire to start being better, stronger, or wiser; what they missed were the tools needed to never stop.  So I've taken, with the help of an absolutely amazing team, all of the ReSources used to coach clients on a 1:1 level and over a period of time, and packaged them into an exciting, life changing one-day experience, where people walk away with the essential skills needed to never stop starting.

Right where a person is about to step away from finishing is where ReU steps in!  ReU meets every individual at the place where they want to quit or have lost the drive to continue in any and every area: spirit, soul, and body. 'Re' means quite literally to do over again. This doesn't always mean from the very beginning, but wherever we're at.  I 'Re' every day. Some days are better than others, and on those off days when I may get nothing done, I wake up the very next day and 'Re' again.  We'll never be perfect and this is why 'Re'ing ourselves is a lifelong process, because, simply put, we'll never arrive at perfection.  We're all perfectly imperfect:)     

We love others and truly believe in the power of kindness. I ReFuse to hoard the gifts I've been blessed with to inspire others so they may walk in all they are called to be at work, with family and friends, and in life period. This blog is designed to support the journey as you 'Re' U! We hope you join us in this ReVolution to transform lives.  aRe U ready?
