Caught up with the 2 webinars, which feels good, and was motivational.
Have scheduled some time over the next few weeks to work on the E-course, including prioritizing it – like the idea of seeing it as a part-time job.
Like the gentle nature of the journey… not feeling too rushed (even though I am still far back in the pack) … rushed is often when I feel overwhelmed and stop the project.
I feel I am constantly percolating ideas… it feels good to refocus to the e-course adventure in-between clients… very therapeutic 🙂January 26, 2016 at 12:00 pm #13727
@andrea, you are so in the exact spot you need to be on the trail.
Never behind, always where you are.
This is a longterm adventure.
However long it takes you to climb this mountain and the next ones after it is the exact amount of time it needs to be.
Love that you’re finding your groove and feeling inspired by the adventure!January 26, 2016 at 4:59 pm #13781

Feeling overwhelmed: OMG was just in Urgent Care myself for a complete panic attack! 1st one ever… and get this…it’s all about what my topics are…lol The Burned out caregiver who gives so much to everyone that I get put last.. on top of returning to NY to put BF mom in assisted living, put her house for sale, deal with their family drama’s (not even my own family) which is another story…ugh… anyway, was hyperventilating in between meditations (yes, it can be done during a panic attack lasting three days LOL) and the thought of finishing this eCourse, finishing my Summit in which I have about 50% more to go and the retreats later on, pushed me over the edge….all the while giving blood transfusions in people’s homes, and a BF who is 6’5 who can be a time-consuming huge baby! So……….after all that ranting, I am feeling behind, and envious of others ahead of me for some reason, and that is not usually like me…which shows I am stressed and have not been taking care of my authentic needs/wants.. so, today should be perfect day to write as I am my own Avatar for my perfect client in my eCourse I am writing!
Time to Love myself into a nice space with a cup of tea and start tackling this course for a day and choose to get to the summit all day tomorrow and lock my doors…(of course, there is a Birthday party at my house tonight) I get to use the valid excuse that the Urgent Care Doc says to stay calm and relax to stay downstairs… yet…….feeling guilty once again for not being “everything to everybody” … WTH and this is my topic!!! I chose the Courageous Caregiver and Healing The Nurse to actually Heal myself all the while going through the process of it’s creation! So, here goes…………………..
I don’t usually put this kind of info out there, but I thought someone else may be feeling the same way and that we are all human, we all have great days and shitty days, and “this too shall pass” MUAH to the group! I am excited to see what we all manifest… Love and Light, Niki
p.s Trip, we have a Threesome! (I will send you her info soon 🙂February 15, 2016 at 7:23 am #17020
Hope you managed to Love Yourself into a nice space with a cup of tea, and focus on your own needs, so you could enjoy some time and energy focused on you.
So hard always feeling we are not doing enough for those we care for… and to recognize that they are on their journey and we are on ours… and to keep practicing boundaries, which can be so difficult to do.
Wishing you calm and energy for the climb up the mountain. Your ecourse is going to be so amazing and necessary, and because you totally get the challenges, it will be authentic and real. Love what you are creating.

Hope you’re feeling better, calmer and more in flow now @nikiking.
I used to put a disclaimer when new people signed up for my old eCourse Creation membership. It went something like:
“Be warned, by creating your eCourse you will be forced to take your own medicine. Best to take it in small, daily doses rather than all at once in an emergency.”
I commend you for recognizing that this is your medicine and therefore a gift to embrace and learn from. No doubt the experience you’re going through will reward those you lead up the mountain.
Thank you for sharing and thanks for your supportive words for Niki @andrea.February 16, 2016 at 9:41 am #17217
wow guys thanks!!!!!! yes, this will be one of my chapters! LOL
Bradley, I loved your quote, can i borrow it?
I took two days and refused to speak to anyone, did yoga, got re-centered, watched Wayne Dyer etc… and of course “came out of my dark place” I forget sometimes that “Hey, this is ONLY LIFE” LOL geez, i have done this so many times and recycled you would think I would remember.. seriously, it is ONLY life and the purpose of this life is to die while still alive… some will get that, some won’t, it’s ok..
anyway, positive note, “got to have a long talk with my new buddy and we are perfect for each other and really in the exact same place on our journeys and great no-nonsense type chicks! Our third “threesome” guy is part time and we love him just the same.. when he’s ready, he will jump in.. we make a great team and I am super happy… I, being the over achiever, took it upon myself to create even ANOTHER biz out of the angst of a past group and that looks like it will be taking off soon. will post about it later as many of you will want to use the resource (when complete in couple weeks or less) so, thank you for all who responded.. Today I film video on android phone for the summit I am working on, anyone know how to get a better microphone that plugs directly into samsung 5 attached to a lavalier mic? i am just going to use what I have and not buy anything at this moment. Also, HUGE shout out to all of US and the boys for creating this wonderful eCourse.. (ok ok, I know your men…lol my son is 34, so to me your boys)February 16, 2016 at 3:50 pm #17272

Great job being patient and persistent @andrea – slow and steady wins the race (even though we’re not competing).
What I’ve learned through the process of creating this course is that all our work/art asks of us is to continually feed/water it and it will grow…February 16, 2016 at 4:58 pm #17276
Thank you @andyfreist… love the reminder to continually feed/water and trust in the growth … and I’m feeling really fed and watered by the support on this journeyFebruary 17, 2016 at 3:14 pm #17382

Thanks for sharing that – means a lot to us 🙂February 17, 2016 at 3:25 pm #17384
The quote is your’s @nikiking. If it makes you famous though, I get 20% royalties on the T-Shirts you make with the quote on them.September 16, 2016 at 1:42 pm #30368
Hey Andrea, how are things going in the journey up the mountain? Sometimes we step away from the mountain to come back to the mountain with more life experience, power, inspiration and motivation. Is that time now for you? Are you ready to charge to the top and lauch your course? Cuz we’re ready to help you. What do you need? We have supplies, mountain knowledge and a Sherpa named Steve. Lets do this!
