This is my personal mantra for all things "new."

It may not be at the pace you want.
It may not be just as you expect.
It may not feel good all the time.

But YOU GOT THIS.

Hold the space for it.
Feel it in your body.
Take one small step at a time.

Think it.
Feel it.
Do it.

This is CONNECTing with what you want before it is. This is using your imagination mind, body, and soul for what can be in alignment with all that is in your greatest good and good for others.

So it is.
It is so.
AMEN.

I caught myself feeling disappointed, again.

There I was yapping away about how I was stuck in my business. My husband listening to me as we walked our evening 2 mile walk around the neighborhood.

In a flash of an instant, the way it feels when you turn on a flashlight and light up a room when the lights go out, I sensed the meaning of what it is to be "free from the demand to feel good all the time."

I chose to stop complaining. I chose to stop the need to fix the feeling. I chose to see what it would be like to just walk and let the feeling ride, the way you ride waves at the wave pool in the theme park.

At first, it was uncomfortable. But then the waves got smaller and smaller. The feeling was pent-up disappointment, more a part of my imagination getting the best of me than the reality of my business.

I have written this quote at the top of my daytimer every day for about 3 months.

It reminds me it's okay if I'm not feeling "up."

It reminds me I don't have to "make" the feelings mean something.

It reminds me to know the feeling will pass.

It reminds me of what's most important to me right now in the present moment, even if I don't feel it.

Before I knew it, the mood lifted, like a cloud blocking the sun. The sun is always there, even if I don't always see or feel it.

Is there a thought or feeling (or both) that keeps nagging on you?
This practice will help you
🌟discover a way to gently ride the wave,
🌟shift your focus, and
🌟feel aligned with your spirit back on track with where you want to be.

If you'd like to experience this hands-on an Align with Your Spirit Breakthrough Session may be just what you desire. Your current what if's, should have's, obstacles, and challenges in life transform into a guiding light at your feet. You leave with direction rooted in meaning and purpose.

Writing helps us to declutter the mind. Imagine. Your mind like a drawer. If we do not PAY ATTENTION to our mind it can get crammed with random thoughts in disordered chaos AND what is helpful to choose from is part of a mental whirlwind we have trouble seeing through.

When we write, we have a place to let go of what isn't serving us and clarify what's important. Our mind becomes focused, no longer at the whim of scattered thinking causing overwhelm or sluggish moods.

Where to start?

Try these 3 prompts every morning:
1⃣ I will let go of ...
2⃣ I am grateful for ...
3⃣ I will focus on ...

🌟Release what isn't serving you,
🌟Refill with what is, and
🌟 Create momentum for a life you love with a renewed daily mental focus.

"MY fatigue."
"MY IBS."
"MY depression."
"I HAVE a headache."
"I HAVE a stomach ache."
"I AM sick."
"I AM depressed."
"I AM tired of being tired."
"MY ex-husband."

What type of life was I creating when these were the words I would speak out loud or think over and over?

When I started PAYING ATTENTION to my words, I started to change how I experienced life.

My words changed to:
"My body feels fatigued right now."
"My mood is currently low."
"I feel the physical sensation of a headache."
"I feel the physical sensation of a stomach ache."
"The man I was previously married to" Or "The father of my children"

As I began changing my words, I changed my relationship with symptoms, sensations, emotions, and moods. I became the AWARENESS of them rather than IDENTIFIED by them.

And this is where we regain our power. We now can transition from the victimization of our struggles to creating what we want. It may not happen overnight, but the transformation from where we don't want to be to where we want to be is a beautiful unfolding.

How would life change if we are fully intentional with each word we say?

What if every
🌟"MY" proclaims ownership of,
🌟"I HAVE" indicates what we possess and want, and
🌟"I AM" describes who we are as a person and a Spirit?

Words have power. When we become conscious of what we say, we are literally changing how we experience life. We start a new dialogue with our inner self and the world around us.

How would being conscious of your words make a difference in your life?

This quote reminds me to stay present...to anchor myself in the only time I am physically alive and experiencing life.

Rather than count the days toward a goal (or count the days till something is over), I can trust what I seek exists in the future and is already within me.

I make the days count by feeling who I already am as the Spirit who is the goal, the dream, the hope, for I believe my heart's desires are Divinely inspired.

Every morning, I slow down. I narrow my focus and mental energy on what is most important to me right now. I ask, "What feeds my Spirit today, right now?"

Time expands as I bring my energy back to the present, make time for what matters most, and breath in the gratitude and joy of connecting with it.

Whatever our current struggle, we can turn inward to the source of our Higher Self, our Holy. It is inward where we find peace, love, and joy, all of which we desire most.

All we really want is to be loved, be at peace, and have joy. In such, I choose to be the love, give love, and add more of it into the world. I start with loving myself, loving others, and opening my heart to receive love whole-heartedly.

For me, this looks like releasing what doesn't serve me in my journal, practicing non-judgment in my thoughts, redirecting my heart to a focus that I believe in, and inviting moments of silence to speak to connect with the wisdom of my soul.

I still experience fear and apprehension about new things. My mind still creates the mindstory to change plans or quit. Yet the intensity of the voice of the mindstories has become less urgent.

The value-focused action taking has created results I love. I am willing to feel what comes up because it's worth it.

The feelings of previously interpreted anxiety when I do something new are now a mix of that anxiety with some wonder. The wonder and curiosity of what is on the other side are greater than the urge to quit.

It wasn't until I defined what mattered most to me that I finally got out of the mentalscape of feeling like something was missing in my life. ⁠

When I prioritize what's important, I am choosing to live fully.

No more being a victim of the schedule or what comes up.

No more scattered energy.

No more blaming "being busy" as the reason why I "don't have time."

Instead, I take time into my own hands & prioritize what is important.

This is the awesome sauce of being able to enjoy life ... and right now, to enjoy the upcoming holidays.

Defining what matters most to me helps me decide what's most important to prioritize and make time for it. I have a focus on goals that matter.

I'm no longer a victim of "life making me busy" or creating the bad habit of being busy. I focus on what I value, prioritize it, and make time for it as a priority.

Plus, along the journey of my goals, I feel connected with the moment, the everyday happenings along the way. I no longer chase goals or chase happiness in the end goal.

Instead, I focus my mental and emotional energy on a value-driven life versus an accomplish-driven life.

This mindset shift has made all the difference in creating a more fulfilled life. What matters most to me, my values, are my inner compass, my True North. My value-focused life is one worth living for.

11/14/2020

What matters most to me is my inner compass.

These are my values.

I decide to
🌟notice how I already fully connect with my values
🌟find new ways I can connect with them
🌟feel my values in my body.

I deeply connect with my values, an inherent part already within me that no external circumstance needs to fill.

With this practice, I have gained MEANING and PURPOSE in everything I do.

11/13/2020

What do you value?

11/13/2020

What matters most to you is an intrinsic part of you, your values. Our discomforts, struggles, and resistance are due to misalignment with what we value.

In the Define What Matters Most Guide, you will

(1) identify your values,
(2) connect what matters most, and
(3) take action that creates the results you desire.

Unlike thoughts and emotions, your values remain defined & reliable. They give you a compass for decision making and taking action that prioritizes what matters most; hence, creating a life you love.

Define what matters most and start living a fulfilled life. https://www.marishofner.com/values-guide

Affirmation of the week.

"I create a life I love."

This has been a mantra in my journals for several years now, even before I knew better health would be my reality.

This affirmation gives me the responsibility to
🌟implement healthy boundaries with others and myself
🌟apply daily habits for long term benefits
🌟taking next best action for results I want
🌟pause and savor moments
🌟align with what matters most
🌟fully feel what I want (vs don't want) in my body

All this (and more) creates a domino effect with compounded impact. The best part ... I love my life. Even if there is a bad day or deep pain, my life as a whole still remains as one I love.

New blog post: ⁠
"What Matters Most to You and Why it's Important." ⁠

Defining what mattered most to me made all the difference in creating a life I loved. It gave me a compass for what to do with my new awareness of noticing my thoughts and feelings. It also gave me direction in decision-making and action-taking.⁠

Defining what mattered most is a tool I have used for⁠
🌟⁠mental wellbeing⁠
🌟emotional resilience⁠
🌟meaningful connections⁠
🌟decisiveness on what's next, &⁠
🌟follow-through to create results I desire.⁠

We hear the saying, "Happiness comes from within."

Seriously, what in the world does that mean?

How do we even go about achieving happiness from within?

I was 36 when I discovered the world of mindfulness & meditation. I discovered I could witness my thoughts and feelings rather than BE them.

Although the practice of mindfulness is to witness what is going on within us and outside of us without any judgment, I felt a missing link I NEEDED in order to feel like this new awareness was going to be of any use to me.

In my determination, I eventually discovered that I could use mindfulness as a tool for
🌟directing my thoughts and feelings
🌟cultivating more of what I wanted to feel and experience.

I discovered when I defined what I valued in different areas of my life, I had a compass to apply mindfulness for creating a life I love.

Create a Fulfilled Life

Growing up we don't learn how to handle our feelings or that we can manage and choose our thoughts. Feelings and thoughts are experienced as happening to us rather than something we can guide. When they are uncomfortable we ignore them or scramble to fix the discomfort. In 2014, when I sought help during a transition of divorce and single motherhood, I was introduced to mindfulness and meditation.

My life changed. My health significantly improved and loving relationships prospered. I wanted to share with the world what I learned and what our culture doesn't intuitively teach us. This has led me to transformational life coaching, a partnership that taps into unrealized potential for a more fulfilled life in this unpredictable, busy world.

​Whether you are going through a life transition or frazzled by daily life, life coaching can help you reconnect with what matters most. You can stop feeling like you are spinning your wheels. You can, instead, learn how to create a more fulfilled life. Life coaching with me will meet you where you are at with a promise of nonjudgement and compassion. My specialty is in mindfulness practices and mindset techniques that are founded in modern neuroscience as well as designing actionable goals rooted in what matters most to you.
