Do you know that feeling, that feeling when you literally feel the goal in your body? My first trip to Estes Park, CO 3 years ago felt like this.
How about when a goal moves you? Tears, smiling, joyous joy, and oh so thankful. My second trip to Estes Park, CO last year, felt like this.
How about when you become the goal? 100% you are it! Physically, mentally and emotionally. Mind+Body+Spirit. Boom. This past weekend, I again made the trek to Estes Park, CO. And this time, it was beyond real. My mountain man of a bearded boyfriend came with me, puff vest and all. I rocked my life goals, puff vest and all, surrounded by the Rocky Mountains, yoga-ing, connecting and goal coaching at the Yoga Journal Conference with lululemon. #joblove Chris explored Denver, Boulder and Estes Park for future adventures, future neighborhoods, and future friends.
So right on.
And then, just like that, the goal moved. Whereas in years past, the goal has always moved me. This year, we moved the goal. It moved up! Chris and I + Bear will be Colorado residents by November, 2013.
Ask yourself, ‘What is holding me (us) back?’.
Feel a Goal.
Make it Happen.
Create YOUR life. Now.

My goals ALIVE while goal coaching.
Man, I am alive in these Rocky Mtns!
Live the dream, right now.
Be a human impact.
I recently returned from a trip to Steamboat Springs, Colorado with my man, Chris Hynes. We were on an adventure. We camped for 5 days. Yes, in a tent. We hiked all over (10 milers, 4 milers…). Hit the local bars and sipped sweet cocktails. There were sweet naps on park benches and conversations on big blankets by the Yampa River.
Now, let me tell you something – it is dry in Colorado. There was heat, cotton balls flying all over the air and allergies. I was scolding the second day of our trip as I was literally puffy eyes, runny nose and clogged ears. I was miserable. I told my man to go do something fun and leave me to my sinus mess.
He said, “No way. I’m with you, babe.”.
I smile. Chris is a very patient, loving and compassionate dude. He stuck it out with me and really took care of me. It was a hard lesson to learn. We were there in our favorite state that is CO, we were hiking and enjoying the mountains and folksy music blasting from our rental car. Then, I got sick and proceeded to the level of angry when I saw our joyous vacation go up in sneezes.
And then, I let go.
I allowed space and let Chris take care of me. Love me. We may not have been hiking up the tallest mountain in Vibrams or raging down a river in some cool float boat that day. But in a moment in time, laying on his lap and taking a sweet nap by the river, I woke up, found myself drooling on his leg and looked up and thanked him for letting me sleep mid-day on our precious vacation together (and, also for letting me drool on his boardshorts). I thanked him for letting me be sick, so that I could actually let me be sick.
And the next day, we hiked again.
Learn to let go. Allow space for others.
Try it and be loved.
I live and breathe goals. I think ‘possibility‘ might be my favorite word of ALL time.
Now, in living in a space of possibility, I share my goals…daily. One goal of mine is: I move to Colorado by April 2014.
This past weekend, I spent my time in Denver, Estes Park and Boulder, Colorado. I took deep sweet breaths of that mountain air. I did yoga daily at the Yoga Journal Conference and yes, I even got feathers put into my hair and put peppermint oil in my water. I embraced that Colorado life.
What I wanted to share about this trip turned adventure was the goosebumps I felt each day. The smile that came across my face each morning when I looked out my lodge window and saw the mountainous mountains, the wildlife of elk all over the YMCA Estes Park campus, and the sunshine every day all day. I wanted to share my future with you and the amazing feeling I felt there knowing with all the confidence in the Universe that I will live there with my (future) husband, a family, and a dog and we will hike, ski, snow shoe, camp and all that is Colorado!!
Go feel a goal. Go do it right now. Breathe it in….breathe it in like that fresh mountain air. Smile and live in a space of possibility for your best life.
