I feel I must warn you. I’ve been thinking lots of big thoughts this past week, and I’m feeling called to share them.
Primarily, I’m really present to the fact that life is precious, and finite. See, I’m just back from traveling to Alabama for the funeral of a high school friend. Teddy was a huge piece of my formative years – a hilarious, daring, larger-than-life piece. And he wasn’t just important to me; I was only one of the 2,000 people who came to his service — his wife, daughter, and mom among them. There were so many signatures in the guest book that they spilled over on to the inside covers.
I made the decision to fly home to for the services in an instant, and I’m so thankful I did. (Thanks, Hubs, for graciously single parenting while I was away.) Being able to visibly show my support for his family and spend time with others who loved him felt 100% right. What I didn’t expect was how great it would feel to be around old friends. It was like no time had passed. And yet, of course, it had. Almost 30 years since we graduated. And Teddy’s passing was a clear reminder that none of us know just how much time we have left.
I’d already been feeling a collective sense of urgency – I mean, I had just led a teleclass called “The Most Important Two Minutes of Your Life,” after all. And a client had recently confessed, “I’m wasting my precious moments on this earth waiting for things to change by themselves.” Then I got the call from Alabama. Then the bombs went off in Boston.
I know I’m talking about things we’d typically rather not think about, but early deaths and terrorist attacks are truly just maddening, saddening events if they don’t inspire us to look at, think, and do things differently.
For me, this means more focus on one-on-one connections to other people, and less on sitting at my computer being “productive.” And a big piece of that involves letting go of second-guessing and encouraging myself even more to act on what my gut has to say – like I did when I booked that plane ticket – so I can still get important stuff done, yet have enough time to call an old friend and gab in the middle of the day.
If there’s some change you want to make, if not now, when?
What all this has to do with Kate’s Reboot Camp
My travels meant I didn’t get everything ready for the launch of Kate’s Reboot Camp. So I’m pushing the start date back a week, to May 6, with special preview bonus material going live on Monday, April 29 for everyone who signs up before class begins.
If you’re ready to start taking full advantage of your time on this gorgeous rock of a planet, but haven’t been able to get out of your own way, Kate’s Reboot Camp may be just the ticket.
It’s not the right fit for everyone, and if it’s not for you, I thank you for reading this far and hope to still have the opportunity to serve you in another way in the future.
But if you want to stop stressing about stuff that doesn’t matter, lose some old ways of thinking that have been holding you back for far too long, and start doing the stuff that lights you – and the people around you – up in a big way, Kate’s Reboot Camp gives you the tools and support you need to do it. For real. Forever.
Sign up for class, give a bolster
Enrolling in Camp just got even better: I’ve been saying for years that if I could wave my magic wand and give everyone in the world one thing, it would be a yoga bolster.
SO, I’m putting my money where my mouth is and for every person who signs up for Kate’s Reboot Camp, I’m donating one beautiful, handmade bolster (made by the wonderful Inner Space Yoga) to the Women’s Center of Rhode Island.
That’s right – choose to do something good for yourself, and you’ll also be empowering a survivor of domestic violence to experience peace.
Listen to the “The Two Most Important Minutes of Your Life” replay
I had some technical difficulties sending out the replay of my teleclass from last week, so I thought I’d rectify the situation by sharing it with everyone on my list. I do make a special offer for Kate’s Reboot Camp on the call -; if you’re interested in class, you won’t want to miss that!
And if you’re intrigued by class but aren’t sure for whatever reason, respond to this email and let’s set up a time to chat quickly on the phone. After all, I’m all about those one-to-one connections. I’d be psyched to have the chance to help you determine if it’s the right step for you.
