Are You Just Existing In The World?

For 40+ years it never occurred to me that I could take a challenge and allow it to be a catalyst to help me create something better. One of my clients says it this way:

Before coaching, I was not consciously aware of myself. I just existed in the world. I was being created by the people around me.  (H.G., age 21)

The shift began to happen for me when someone began to teach me the possibilities of creating a new way of showing up, despite the challenges. My client says it this way:

I have a new consciousness now that I never knew I could have. I can now truly create how I show up and stop living life according to what is going on in the moment. (H.G.)

That’s freedom.

So how does one go about making this happen?

Become friends with your emotions and thoughts.

When we have a true friend, we seek to understand them, to hear them, to be with them.

Becoming friends with our emotions and thoughts is no different. Just like a true friend can teach us something, so, too, our emotions and thoughts can be our teachers. What is the message behind your thoughts and emotions?

Since learning how to appropriately express my emotions and thoughts, I have become more mature. This maturity now gives me the insight to ask my emotions what message they are giving me. I then use a tool to create more confidence in who I am and the direction I am headed.  (H.G.)

What are you feeling right now? What does it sound like, look like, and feel like? Where is it in your body?

Step out of just existing. Step into possibility.

It matters!

I’m Coach Mandy-Marie.

Life is full of challenges–mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Being able to live from the wisdom gained from our challenges and mistakes is called emotional resilience.


As a young mother of five, I was a mess of depression and perfectionism. Now as Nana to 10, my mess has become wisdom and propelled me forward with a passion for helping families become emotionally resilient, one person at a time.

Relief is possible!
