Women are notorious for trying to help other people solve their issues at the expense of dealing with their own. That’s why I lOVE this quote by James Baldwin. Face your issues! face it

What’s The Difference Between an Accountability Partner and a Coach?

Accountability partners can be absolutely powerful! And coaches can help you shift to a whole new level! But what’s the difference between an accountability partner and a coach? And how do you know when it’s time to use one or the other?

Sara Carter is a certified coach who helps people get out of debt and grow financially. Yet she helped me get down from a size 16 to a size 10 in less then a year’s time. She’s not a weigh loss guru or a personal trainer. Far from it! She needed to lose weight herself!

Here she and I talk about the difference between an accountability partner and a coach and how to choose one at the right time in your life when you need to move forward.

How To Move Forward in 2014

The word of the month is MOVING FORWARD because in 2014 you can’t afford to look back!

Why didn’t God put eyes in the back of your head? As a vulnerable human you could certainly use them there.

That way you can really, “watch your back”.  LOL moving forward in 2014

They are in the front and we can truly pull a metaphysical message from this;

it is more important to look ahead than look behind.

When you look behind-at the things that you miss, lost, had-you are stuck in the past. You are living today but mourning yesterdays. Mourning brings with it biochemical changes.

At the appropriate time mourning is healing and cleansing but when one has become “stuck” there then it turns into depression, bitterness and regrets.

Carrying around these emotions when you are trying to live your best life is such a dichotomy that it becomes TOTALLY impossible. Which leads to more regrets, bitterness and depression. And you live a vicious cycle.


FORGIVE       That’s it.

  • Let go of the thought that you are owed something.
  • Let go of the thought that you have lost something.
  • Let go of the thought that things are suppose to be a certain way.


What if everything was just the way it’s suppose to be. It’s perfectly designed to bring you happiness but in your stuck state of mourning you’re only seeing and experiencing the bad.

Think about it. And then let go. You have nothing to lose; except bright, new reasons to move forward!
