Are You Walking Through A Storm?

Are You Walking Through A Storm?

Nothing you or I do can EVER effect the forces of nature or the unpleasant circumstances and trials we will walk through in our lives. All we can do in the midst of any storm, is take a deep breath and remember that in this moment today, we are okay. We are breathing and our life is still a gift. We have survived many storms in the past, maybe not this ferocious, but this storm, just like every other storm, will eventually pass and the sun WILL shine again.

Perhaps this storm will leave behind a horrible path of destruction. If that is the case, all we can do, is take a deep breath, and make a choice. Are we going to let the devastation consume us along with its other victims or are we going to continue to breathe, be thankful for the good things that remain, and move forward POWERFULLY one day at a time?

The ONLY thing I can control today is how I CHOOSE TO BE in the world.

My heart is FLOODED with love and concern for you when I think about the storms you are seeking shelter from today. All I can do from here is take a deep breath and tell you how much I care for you. You ARE truly a POWERFUL woman. I am amazed by the strength we were all created with that gets us through the storms of life.

Don’t try to face this storm alone. Reach out for support. Remember the POWER of Self Care. One day when this storm is a memory, you will be able to support another POWERFUL woman, feeling scared and alone, who is going through a storm of her own.

Self Care is the resource that has helped me through major trials in my own life, especially within the last year. I love to learn from other women. What thoughts, actions, people, or resources have been a comfort to you in times of trial? Let me know below.

I love you!

P.S. Feel free to share this post with anyone you know who is walking through a storm.

Are YOU Fed Up?

Are YOU Fed Up?

I am looking for 5 women who are fed up with feelings of overwhelm, fear, worry, and low self esteem and are ready to kick all of that negativity to the curb. It’s hard to imagine life without all of that inner turmoil, but I have experienced life both ways, and know that it is possible to struggle less even when outward circumstances are rough.

I will spend 2 hours a week for 12 weeks with five of you, starting July 22nd having one of the most powerful conversations you will ever have. You will leave this 12 week program KNOWING that you are loved, valued, and capable of creating a meaningful, joyous life for yourself and also that you are able to create an environment where those around you experience their own ability to produce the same result in their lives.

The cost of this 12 week program, plus daily access to me Monday through Friday, via a private fb support group, is $740.

In addition, I have asked Bill Cumming, the creator of this powerful conversation, if he would kick off our 12 weeks together in a group call, as well as a call at the end of the 12 weeks, to make sure I delivered the goods. When Bill works with clients in corporations, he charges $800 for an hour of his time so this is an incredible bonus for all of us!

If you are fed up, ready to break out of the daily struggle you have been experiencing, and commit to a more peaceful future of your creating, then send me your five paragraph application…Your who, what, what, why, and when.

Who are you? — tell me a little bit about yourself.

What is it you struggle with most?

What do you REALLY want your life to look like?

WHY should you be one of the first five women to go through this 12 week conversation with me?

And…

When is the best fit for you…Monday, Wednesday, or Friday between 9:30-3:30 pm ET, for your weekly appointment? It is super important that you are free of all distraction during these calls. If I can manage it with five…

Send your letter to sarahboucher@iamapowerfulwoman.net

I will review the applications and contact you to set up an introductory call before our July 22nd kick off call with Bill. If 30 people submit applications, I can put you on a waiting list for the next 12 weeks, or if you are READY to have this conversation with another convener before then, let me know that in your letter as well. I will do my best to get you connected with someone.

As a busy mother of five children, I simply do not have time for a full client load. My space is very limited and I want to give the BEST support possible to those who sign on to go through this conversation with me.

I ABSOLUTELY love supporting other women in seeing possibilities. I’m THRILLED to be starting this journey with those of you who are ready to invest in yourself and serious about changing your experience of life.

Love,
Sarah Boucher

Take A Smile

Take A Smile
If your husband has a bad attitude today…take a smile.
If your kids aren’t listening to a word you say…take a smile.
If your car is in the shop or
your washing machine is broken…take a smile.
If someone you love dearly is in the hospital…take a smile.
If someone you care about is addicted to drugs or alcohol…take a smile.
If you are a single mom…take a smile.
If you are a widow…take a smile.
If you are sad…take a smile.
If there’s no money in your bank account…take a smile.
If EVERYTHING seems to be going wrong…take a smile.

YOU are a POWERFUL woman. YOU are breathing and life is still a gift. We are all connected. This smile that you take, will lift your spirit and you will bless the next person. All of those circumstances above happen to us and go on around us every day. We can’t DO anything about them. The ONLY thing we have any control over is the way we CHOOSE to BE in the world. So…know someone cares very much about you and take a smile.

Self Care is the resource I turn to daily that helps me smile even through “tough” times.

YOU are going to be okay…one day at a time.

I want to hear what you have to smile about today, even if you are walking through a trial.
Let me know in the comments below.

Help!

Help…Not Just Anybody

Help!

Do you really want help?

Do You Really Want Help?

I am at a place in life where I am being offered a lot of help.  I am surrounded by people who love and care about me.  That’s a GREAT thing!

“Let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do to help.  I mean it.”

“Do you need any help?”

“What can we do to help?”

I feel extremely loved and grateful for all of the offers of “help” but I have also learned a thing or two about help over the past year and I would like to share it with you now, by picking apart the lyrics to The Beatles song Help.

Help, I need somebody
Help, not just anybody
Help, you know I need someone, help  
The truth is, I don’t want help.  I don’t need help and The Beatles didn’t NEED help either.  The word help implies that I am not capable of doing what needs to be done to improve my mood or situation, whether it is a bad day, sickness, a death, lack of money, what have you.  
Help means..
“I NEED you to fix this for me.”  
“I’m helpless.”
When I was younger so much younger than today
I never needed anybody’s help in any way I totally wanted help up until a couple of years ago.  I spent my adult life waiting for someone to swoop in and show me how to be a productive member of society.  I felt incapable of doing anything well (parenting, housework, homeschooling.)  I had zero confidence, and I wanted to be rescued. 
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured 
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors
Help me if you can, I’m feeling down  Yikes! No one can help you feel better.  Your experience of life comes from your thinking.  Happiness always comes from inside of YOU!  No one can help you PERIOD! And–as much as you would like to, you cannot “help” anyone either.  You might be thinking of people in your life that you are currently “helping” and be completley irritated that I am saying your efforts are futile.  YOU cannot HELP or SAVE anyone.  But there is something you can do! 
And I do appreciate you being round While I don’t want anyone attempting to help me, I know the offers of assistance are coming from a place of loving kindness and I am thankful to have such wonderful caring people surrounding me during my current trial.
Help me get my feet back on the ground
Won’t you please, please help me I want something better than help. 
I want your SUPPORT!  Stick with me.  There is a difference.
And now my life has changed in oh so many ways
My independence seems to vanish in the haze 
But every now and then I feel so insecure
I know that I just need you like I’ve never done before
The last four lines of the song are the difference between help and support.
And The Difference Is…
The last four lines say this.  
I need you to help me.
I am needy.
I am an energy taker.  
Help me.
I will completely drain you of your time and energy.
I am insecure.  
Fix me.  
I have been that person.  I have been the energy drainer.  I am NOT interested in being that woman again.   
Support is a completely different experience than help, to the person on the receiving end.  Support is empowering.  Support means that the person assisting in whatever capacity acknowledges the POWER of the person who happens to be knocked down at the time.  Support is mutual.  The person receiving support is able to in the next moment give support back to the supporter. 
 
Support is 100% belief in another person.  Belief in their strengths and in their ability to rise above their obstacles and soar.
  
There is no feeling greater than the 100% support of another person–in my opinion. More of us would follow our dreams and reach our full potential if we would only believe in and support each other this way instead of trying to help or fix each other.
Was there a time when someone got behind you 100% and you soared?  Come find me on fb and tell me about it.  I love to be inspired by others!

Unleash Your Power Through Coaching


Unleash Your Power Through Coaching
Coaching makes the game of life fun to play.  I want my life to always be fun.  Having someone cheer me on as I’ve made my next move over the last two years has been one of the greatest feelings I have ever known.  Unleash your POWER through coaching like I did.

Coaching is an AMAZING way to get support in reaching a goal or following your dreams!  Stepping out of your comfort zone into the unknown can be really scary.  Some people want to do it alone and would NEVER consider hiring an individual to support them. 

I am NOT one of those people.

I love team work and the coaching conversations I have had with coaches have offered me more support than my close friends and family members have been able to give me.  Often, those closest to us are the ones snuffing out our attempts to grow.  I am willing to pay for 100% support! 

The fact of the matter is this.  We all have the POWER to reach our goals without hiring a coach.  Michael Neill, a very highly paid coach says, “No one NEEDS a coach.  What coaching does is gives you accelerated results.”  (That is not verbatim.)  The truth is I don’t want to wait for years and years to reach my desired result and proclaim how I did it on my own.  I love exploring possibilities with another person. 

I want 100% support and I want to give 100% support. I want to support you as you unleash your power through coaching.

I’m tired of being shot down and told how what is in my heart can never be. 

“What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.”

What is it you want to achieve?

Coaching works best when you have some skin in the game.  You need to be committed to yourself and to the process.  I have gained my knowledge about coaching from very successful coaches who charge $1000 for an hour of their time and between $30,000 to $50,000  a year to be their apprentice.  I want to offer every day women, like myself, who don’t have an extra $30,000 laying around, coaching at an affordable price! I am looking forward to supporting you as you grow in your POWER!!!

Send an email to iamapowerfulwoman.sb@gmail.com 
Subject line Introductory Coaching Call

In the call we will discuss what areas of your life you want coaching around. We will see if my style fits with your goal and if it does, we will discuss a coaching plan to fit your budget!

What One Person Can Do
In addition to coaching, I also offer the What One Person Can Do conversation. I was trained by Bill Cumming to hold this conversation with others. To find out more about that program, click on the link. If you are interested in What One Person Can Do in addition to coaching or on its own, please put What One Person Can Do in the subject line of your email.

I Am A Powerful Woman

Sending you lots of love and POWER!
