Life is short and we all deserve to hear your music. Yesterday I had one of my more difficult coaching sessions. I sat with a young man. We talked about health and wellness, food and exercise — then the real stuff came.

I asked him to pay attention to and reflect on what is going through his head when he feels like he can’t motivate himself. He proceeded to say, “It’s all the emotional stuff.” I gently nudged, asking, “So there is a lot of other stuff, emotional stuff?” and he replied, “Yes.”

He proceeded to share that at the end of 2017 he lost his wife. inquiring how, and he told me her heart just stopped. I asked how old she was, and he responded, “38,” as a tear rolled down his face.

This moment has been on my mind ever since.

I  ache for him, watching him still struggle and miss her, knowing there is no right or wrong timeline to grieve.

Reflecting how lucky I am to have my loved ones surrounding me daily, and recognizing how quickly they can be gone from your life.

I also am thankful for getting to sit with him, getting to be there for him, doing exactly what I should be doing.

Dr. Wayne Dyer once said, “Don’t die with the music still in your heart.” I am so fortunate that I  live out the music daily with my eclectic life coaching, staging, and decluttering. I  help people discover what they want and desire in life. Which inspires and spreads beauty daily.

Please don’t wait any longer, don’t die with the music still in your heart. Life is short and we all deserve to hear your music.
