Good Morning!

I am back from Mexico well rested, refreshed and slightly tanned (this freckle-faced girl stayed in the shade of a beach palapa as much as possible…it was easier for the waiter to get me my umbrella drinks that way). 


I am looking forward to this week’s tele-gathering on Authenticity.  Yesterday, as I sat to jot down some ideas for our gathering I realized that Authenticity is a very rich topic.  I pondered my own experiences of having once been a frenzied, career-driven stockbroker in downtown Miami and what seemed like a lack of Authenticity in my interactions with others to the immense contrast to the life I now lead living in a small mountain community in Colorado.  I often take for granted my simple and focused lifestyle where “what you see is what you get” and in doing so, can forget that so many women are struggling like I once did to find themselves and their Authenticity while living hurried and busy lives.  Of course the real clincher for me was experiencing a brain injury nine years ago that lovingly forced me to re-prioritize my life around what really mattered.  I will always be grateful for the gifts my head injury gave me, especially the gift of living an Authentic and meaningful life.


It is such a joy for me to coach women who are committed to finding and expressing their Authentic Selves.  I am honored to be able to hold the space for women to explore the parts of themselves that they have long since abandoned in exchange for living a responsible and successful life. Often focusing on other’s needs first, they find immense freedom and happiness in learning to listen to their own inner voice and to put their needs back on top of the list.  In reclaiming their lost selves and their lost voices, they find that not only do their lives change, but so does the world they live in.  Everyone wins.


When I think of how much time we have spent being who we thought everyone else wanted us to be, I feel sad.  But when I think about the gifts that we bring into the world as we embrace our True Selves, I am tickled beyond belief.


It’s easy to look at the world and see the plethora of problems and challenges facing our planet.  But when I consult my heart and ask, “What can I do?”  I hear the words, "Let your light shine.”  I feel joy in knowing that as we unleash the Authentic Woman within each and every one of us, we are indeed blessed and we bring much needed joy and light into the world.


It is up to us to decide whether we want to continue to live on automatic pilot or to get out of our comfort zone, gather up some courage and support, and awaken to our inner voice that says “Now is the time for us to be the women we came here to be!”  I think that the choice is pretty clear and I think that the time is indeed now. The world needs us.


So what do you think?  Would you like to come and play?  I invite you (or for some of you, I dare you) to join me in gathering with other amazing women on Wednesday, May 17th to discuss and explore the topic of Authenticity.  You never know what might happen!


Authentically yours,

Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week:  "There is only one You in the Universe. By you not sharing your Authentic Self with the world, we are robbed forever of the gift of You!"
-- Carole L. Billingham, MCC

 Are you freely sharing Yourself with the world or are you hiding behind who you think you should be in order to make others happy? What might happen if you mustered up the courage to try on and express your Authentic Self? 

  "As I courageously express my Authentic Self I find a lightness in my step and a sense of new possibilities. I am happy, I am grateful and I am loved!"

Carole's Latest Book Recommendation

Moving On: Creating Your House of Belonging With Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach

Building on the success of Sarah’s previous books, Moving On expresses a new-age inclusiveness that allows people of all faiths and belief systems to enjoy her positive outlook on life.

Inspired by her own life experiences and requested by avid Ban Breathnach readers eager for another volume, Sarah helps readers to understand themselves and to use those insights to create a home that truly suits their spirits and their lives.

"We do not know how to move on," Sarah observes. "We have learned to let go, but not move on." This keen insight differentiates this book from other self-help books dealing with life changes.

Sarah helps readers cope with what she calls, "the myriad demands of uprooting one’s life," and teaches them to not only move, but to finally create what she calls, "your own house of belonging."

Like the other books in Sarah’s acclaimed Simple Abundance series, Moving On is what Sarah calls "part meditation, how-to-manual, and memoir."
