When enough is enough

Updated: Jan 22, 2022

Are you doing it? Are you holding your breath? Clenching your jaw? Spinning on a given thought? Feeling your insides twisting and stopping flow? We all do it. We do this each and every day over a multitude of things.

A couple of years ago I had shingles. Of all places it was on my face. I was so disappointed and frustrated and in pain. I came down with them a couple of weeks before I was to travel to France for work. I had actually booked an extra week to explore Nice and the beaches of the South of France and was so excited.


Alas, my packing and excitement turned into ice packs, cayenne creams, swelling and crazy pain.

If you have never had shingles - it’s a rashy, disastrous, painful experience where your nerve endings actually come to the skin surface. The wonderful blessing in this whole experience is that during and for years after the episode, any time I was in a situation that did not resonate for me, my face would flare in pain and fire. It took me a while to understand what was happening. Sometimes my face would flare in a situation my brain felt it had under control, my nervous system and innate fight or flight systems obviously would beg to differ. I realized during this time, just how sensitive our entire physical and emotional ecosystem is. Things we may not even consciously understand may be a trigger for us. These deep rooted patterns impact our health, balance and well being moment by moment.


I urge you to spend time being - feeling - breathing and knowing when your body is telling you that enough is enough.


The signs are always there - if we listen. Our bodies, our “spidey” senses, our breath never lies.

In the last year I changed jobs. A move some questioned while those close to me applauded. We must respect ourselves, understand the impact of negativity or lack of fulfillment and embrace the courage to jump into change. After all, what’s the worst that can happen?


  1. Think about a situation in your current life that brings you stress or heaviness.

  2. What are your options surrounding this situation?

  3. Imagine going through each option and truly let yourself feel what the outcome might be. Don’t let fear or judgement stop you from truly exploring each option.

  4. What resonates and what doesn’t? Are there simple things you can do to make a positive change?Welcome to your blog post.
