Several years ago, I was doing some planning for my business and I decided to expand my scope (as I often guide my clients) to include planning for my personal life, too.  After all, for me, they are really integrated.

After brainstormed all the BIG things I wanted to accomplish, and how I wanted to feel when they were in place or complete, I asked myself one of my favorite coaching questions:

“What is going to stand in my way of accomplishing all of my goals?”

The usual responses came to mind along with my own self-doubts. 

But, then I paused.  

And when I looked at my notes and what I didn’t see was the real answer to “what is going to stand in the way?”  

All of the plans and visions I have for my life and business were dependent on one thing, and that one thing was not represented at all in my daily routine at the time. 

How can I make big plans for myself that do not include taking care of myself?  

I can’t.  

My Vision was dependent on a happy and healthy Jenny. 

At that moment I realized that I had to make self-care a priority in order to live the life I want to live and achieve my Vision. 

This was a HUGE shift for me.  As in, “I’ve-just-run-into-a-brick-wall” AH HA! kind of moment!  It shifted my approach to my own life and inspired me to focus on self-care as a primary component of my coaching. 

Here’s what I believe:  if you have big dreams for yourself — or if you are ready to get out of a rut — self-care MUST be a part of your plan. 

I have heard from so many clients and friends that they have lost touch with themselves and don’t even know what would feel nourishing and supportive any more.


Our needs change throughout our lives. What served you a few years (or months!) ago, may not have the same impact now.  

That’s why I’m so excited to share a free opportunity with you to help you take a pause and get clear, nourished and energized for your self-care plan.

Join me to create Your 2020 Self-Care Plan on Thursday, February 13 at 12:30 pm CT.

This is one hour just for you! 

It’s a safe space to help you to get crystal clear on your essential self-care needs now. 

And, I’ll also be sharing how you can move forward with implementing your most essential self-care practices. 

It’s a pretty cool snapshot of what I teach my clients in the Grace & Space Self-Care Circle. 🙂

Because it’s time to shift from “I should be taking better care of myself” to “Now I know what I need and how to do it.”

Come. Get clear. Be well.

I can’t wait to see you there!

With love from your coach,
Happy & Healthy Jenny
