You're Never Too Old to Dream, She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad

The older I get, the more I realize how true this is. I have more dreams than ever. I have BIGGER dreams than at any other time in my life. Maybe this is because at 56, know I'm more than half way through my life (I intend to be a centenarian). Maybe it's because as I look back and see what I've accomplished in my life, the difficult things I've lived through, the hard things I've done, I have more faith in myself and my capabilities than ever.
Maybe it's because I have so many wonderful female role models in my life in their 60's and 70's that are rocking their lives, personally and professionally. What about you? Are you still dreaming, planning and achieving? Do you still believe in yourself?

Inspirational Reading "Your Creative Space" She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad

Today’s inspirational reading....... “Your Creative Space” I’ve got the urge to completely rearrange my home art studio, since I cannot paint in my Denver studio right now. Another week or two, and I will be recovered enough to start working in there. I updated the home office before surgery, with new artwork and treasures. Our work environment plays such a significant role in our success. For me there has to be order, of course order in my office looks a lot different than order in my art studio!!🌸

 Above all, there has to be beauty. It’s my personal policy, to surround myself with beautiful things.

What Are You Affirming? She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad

We are all affirming, all day, every day.
Everything we think of and say to and about ourselves, whether positive or negative is an affirmation.
All of our self-talk, the dialogue in our heads is a flowing stream of affirmations. This dialogue affects how we walk through life. Are you affirming thoughts of love, joy, and self-acceptance, or are you affirming thoughts of judgement, inadequacy and criticism?

Free Gift, "Shameless Love - The Miracle of the Mirror” Online Self - Study Course, She Splendid with Kimberly Conrad

This course is a self-study course so you can work at your own pace, and we have a private facebook group just for course members if you'd like to take part at https://www.facebook.com/groups/612004639537414/ 

This mini course is a condensed version of “Shameless Love”, a powerful course I teach in my coaching practice. Our love of self, or lack thereof, dictates how we walk through every area of our lives. Self-Love is the foundation of achieving and sustaining all that we truly desire. The realization of every dream we have, from fulfilling relationships to career and all of the gifts in between, are dependent on our ability to truly love ourselves. All wrapped up in holiday colors, this course, which was originally released in December of 2019 is my free GIFT to you for a limited time.
My greatest desire is to teach women how to love themselves, how to heal themselves, and to inspire them to live extraordinary lives.

Be Brave and Let Go, She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad

As we prepare to embrace the new year, we must not be afraid to let go of what no longer serves us. Thoughts, beliefs, habits, practices, even previously made plans that are no longer in alignment with our new Dreams.

I say new, because we are constantly expanding and evolving, and we can only expect our goals and dreams will evolve as well. Sometimes we hold onto plans that have not yet come to fruition, because we feel letting them go is a sign of failure. This could not be less true. We only have so many resources, emotionally spiritually, physically and financially, and we need all of them focused on the DREAM at hand. 

It’s okay to change your mind, to switch gears, to dream new dreams. Release with no regret what no longer moves you in the direction of becoming all that you want to be and joyfully embrace all that helps to to step into your calling.

Child-like Wonder-She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad

“Never Lose Your Child-like Wonder”

I don’t know who actually first said this, but I remember it being a line in one of my favorite movies, Under the Tuscan Sun. Children have the ability to marvel at everyday things.
They find Beauty everywhere they look, and their curiosity keeps them in a constant state of excitement!

I have 3 precious grandkids, and it’s it amazing how just being with them changes the way I look at everything. When you’re with a child it’s so easy to see things through their eyes. I’d love to live this way, in a state of child-like wonder and joy, to be un-jaded by the disappointments of life. It can be done. I know that for a fact, because I’ve lived that way before.

This year it has been harder, because where I used to see them every week, and have regular doses of this state of mind, I’ve seen them very little due to Covid. But we have this wonderful thing my friends, this truly fascinating thing called a mind! 

And the great news is we have complete control over our mind through the thoughts we think. Through our thoughts, we can create any “feeling” we desire to have, and transport ourselves back in time, and feel again the complete joy of past experiences or forward in time, and feel the excitement and joy of how we desire things to be, as if they have already happened.

What we as adults call visualization, that takes some effort, is the imagination we had as children that came so naturally. I never want to lose the ability to transport myself to a state of childlike wonder.

Breathe And Let Go- She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad

I'm not sure I have ever been more aware of how important it is to stay present in the moment. This week I am committed to sitting for a bit with every thought, experience and interaction. I don't want to miss thing! I'm feeling a sense of calm right now, which is really unusual for me for this time of year.

Our family has chosen to have a socially distanced Christmas. We're doing a family zoom with all of the kids and grandkids on Tuesday night. Normally I am running at mach speed, stressed out of my mind at this point, getting the house and all that goes with ready for our big family Christmas.

With Covid, and my very recent surgery, this year is completely different. I am resting when I need to, taking lots of time go within and listen to my heart, watching Hallmark movies with my sweet Mom, and while I'm so sad to not be able to be together, I am making a point to find the gifts, the silver linings in this unique season, and this current sense of calm and ease is one of those gifts.

There are gifts to be gleaned in every experience if our eyes are open. What gifts are you currently aware of? Please share

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday Beautiful Ladies! Can you believe it is Christmas week? I got my stitches out on Thursday and I am beginning to feel a lot more like myself, and moving around a lot better. thank you so much for your emails and support🌸

Morning Rituals

This morning I opted for a mini coffee mocha because it just felt like chocolate was in order.
Still can’t lower my head to look down to journal so I am continuing to enjoy propping some of my favorite little books up on my lap desk in the mornings to feed my creative soul.

 Today’s book is “My Favorite Things” by Maria Kalman It’s a lovely book of thoughts and illustrates that just makes my heart smile.

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall, She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad 12/14/20

My entire coaching philosophy is built around shameless self-love, something I unfortunately learned much later in life. There is nothing vain about wholly and completely loving yourself. True self love is not only a gift we give to ourselves, it’s a gift we give the world. When we truly love ourselves, everyone wins! Look in the mirror today and say something loving to yourself!

Fall in Love With Yourself, She Splendid With Kimberly Conrad 12/12/20

Self-love is the foundation of achieving and sustaining all that we truly desire. The realization of every dream, from fulfilling relationships to career and all of the gifts and treasures in between, are dependent not only on our ability to truly love ourselves, but how we show up in the most important relationship in our lives, the one with ourselves. 

 From my mini-course “Shameless Love- The Miracle of the Mirror”.
