Terri’s Tilt — Reconnecting

Happy Spring! While today’s date implies it is nearly summer, my life, my flowers and my garden are just catching up and enjoying the new beginnings of Spring. One of my clients recently asked if I had hibernated for the winter…it has been a while since my last Terri’s Tilt. So, thinking of Spring, and preparing for the richness of summer, I want to reconnect with you and share my work in hibernation…

I have been doing what I ask of my clients: reflecting on life lessons, refreshing my soul, and discovering new openness to life’s challenges. I have used the past months as a time to grow and renew myself – both personally and professionally. Personally, I am renewing my commitment to embracing life with joy and gratitude. The most challenging piece of this work is acknowledging the countless experiences of everyday life that smack me in the head and heart and remind me (sometimes not at all graciously) of my humanness… the pressure of deadlines, the ever present need to adjust my life lens, facing my own fears, challenges and successes, and, oh, yes, practice of the art of saying ‘No’ to distractions that take me away from my own life goals. Can you relate to any of these?

The past months have been rich in professional development. I am pleased to be among the first cohort to earn the Master level for Certified Health Education Specialists. This credential raises the bar of competencies for the field of healthcare education, and acknowledges our depth and breadth of knowledge, skills and practice. Representing the American College Health Association, I recently had the privilege of working with a task force of 34 leaders from across the country, to address the issue of violence against women on college campuses - violence along the entire continuum. While exhausting and stressful in content, the energy and commitment among participants is extraordinary. I think we are on to something powerful! On the coaching front, I have also made some exciting discoveries – which I hope will challenge, inspire and benefit my clients and my Tilt subscribers.

I am grateful for the opportunity to reconnect with you. Stay tuned for my summer Tilt as well as an upcoming, exciting, in person workshop meant for anyone in the trenches of life: those who are struggling with life decisions, feeling overwhelmed with life, and/or just plain stuck in one area of life or, simply want to interact with other bright and inspiring men and women living life fully. This morning session promises to be a light hearted, but down and dirty workshop. You will leave, having enjoyed a morning with others facing similar issues, and with a concrete skill to address your own personal challenge. As a Terri’s Tilt subscriber, you will be the first to receive my invitation to this event.

Watch your inbox!

Be well and Make this a GREAT day.
