Get free tips to ROCK LIFE on YOUR own terms

Today I want to share something with you about life lessons and the beauty behind a common cold.

About a month ago I came down with a cold. This was my first cold post chemo and of course I was a little nervous, but it’s stayed with me for a while. It sent me on an emotional rollercoaster and left me asking many personal unanswered questions.

I’ve consulted with every type of health practitioner you can imagine and I’ve implemented many remedies. Heck most nights I was in bed before my kids.

My inner crap came up. The deep down shit. The lonely, tiny girl-in-a-sandbox issues.

I believe everything happens for a reason and this cold gave me the opportunity to deal with all the unconscious ‘stuff’. It was my emotional aftermath of cancer.

I expected this to happen I just didn’t know when. I wanted to plan it.

I wanted to skip this healing process but I knew that wasn’t true healing.

I resisted and avoided these emotions until my body just shut down.

So why am I telling you this?

1) Because I want you to know I’m human and like you I experience the good, the bad and the ugly. We ALL have a process. A journey and ‘shit’ to deal with.

2) You are not broken or damaged goods. Transformation is possible. It takes work but you can do it in a kind loving way. You are worth it.

3) You are receiving a PhD in life.  Are you showing up for class or sleeping through life? Every challenge, outburst, tantrum, breakdown has the potential for a breakthrough.

Life will show you over and over again where you need to grow. Are you showing up for class?

You are worth a PhD.

Much love,




P.S. I have something BIG coming this Fall. It’s a motherhood game changer. A transformational experience that will be both eye opening and will have you on your knees in gratitude. This is only for 10 committed women who are ready to dive deep and find internal peace. Are you ready? If so, hit ‘reply’ and let Lisa know. She will send you the application.

It’s not just a phase.

by Heather Chauvin

When parents come to me, they’re at their wit’s end with their child’s behavior. Usually after reading all the ‘expert’ parenting books sitting by their night stand. They’ve already been told by professionals, friends and family, that, “It’s just a phase. They’ll get over it.” We’ve all heard of the Terrible Two’s and dreaded teenage […]

Why are we so afraid to ask for this?

by Heather Chauvin

I need to have a serious heart-to-heart with you. Here’s the thing – we all need support. Now, this is something I know we ALL struggle with in life (especially in parenting). It actually took me becoming deathly ill with cancer before I surrendered to this fact for myself (and I teach this stuff!). Let […]
