Mirror, Mirror Build My Self-Esteem

The world has gone self-esteem, positive affirmation crazy. The self-help industry is big business. There are some gurus and some poo-poos out there.   If you search Amazon.com books for “self-esteem” you find 155,148 books on the subject.  Barnes & Noble shows 1780 books with “Self-Esteem” in the title.

The Four Secrets of Pain

    The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. – Psalm 34:18 People try their best to avoid pain in life because pain is not pleasant. It is also not avoidable. If you have lived for any amount of time beyond the first few years of your life, you […]

Is That True?

Our reality is shaped by our perspective. Our perspective is formed by who we are and what  we have experienced. One of the most powerful questions used in personal coaching is simply this: “Is that true?” Most of what we believe is not “true” but merely a version of reality that we’ve accepted based on […]

The Death of Kamryn Adams

I first wrote this piece in January 2015 with much controversy and backlash from readers. Those who did not understand mourned my physical death in shock. Some shed tears and cursed me once they found out I was still breathing.  One day you’ll read this post and I won’t be breathing. But today, Christ lives […]

The Best Things in Life are NOT Free

They say the best things in life are free.  That is not quite true. The best things in life (family, friends, love, peace, joy) do not require us to spend money. However,  there is a cost to every decision we make or do not make during our journey.  The best things in life are not […]

Making Decisions On Purpose

  There is nothing worse than being in a situation because the decision you made was not your own.  It is terrible to suffer the consequences of a decision that you were bullied into or forced into by social pressure. So you need to be wise and move through life at your own pace and […]

Three Tips for Sharing Your Story

“MINE! MINE! MINE!” As children, one of the first things we learn to do for others is share.  Everyone has seen two angry toddlers playing tug-a-war with a favorite toy and screaming the word “MINE!” at the tops of their lungs. It is at that precise moment a mature adult comes in and orders the […]

4 Things I did to Kick My Shopping Addiction

UPDATE: I’m still on the wagon. Delivered from the need for excess.    Well, 2015 is over and so is my writing sabbatical. Last year my focus was on building ZOI Wholeness, a not-for-profit personal development firm, and to discipline myself to focus more on the needs of others.  My goal for last year was […]

He Said, She Said

In the past 30 days, I’ve been to Brazil, Spain, and Switzerland. That’s Portuguese, Spanish, and German language in my ears. Trying to navigate my way through the day with limited understanding of these languages is sometimes exhausting and quite frustrating.  When you are trying to discuss something with someone whose native language is different […]

4 Reasons Not to Cut Off Your Relationships

Learning to accept (not just tolerate) other people is a huge part of our journey to love. We have a tendency to feel like everyone (or most people) should think like us, behave like us, BE like we are. If you are a fast-paced, goal-oriented driver it takes an effort to build relationships with slower-paced, […]

Surround Yourself With the Right People

Who is on your team? If you are saying to yourself “What team?” then I can suppose that you have not formed a team of people around you to help you build a successful life.  You cannot go it alone.  A standard philosophy in personal development is that you must have like-minded people around you that challenge […]

The Powerless Nature "I’m Sorry"

They say words have power… Words have power.  You can get metaphysical, spiritual, or just commonsensical with it. When you tell yourself you will do something, you usually do it.  When you say, “I think I’m getting sick” you usually end up sneezing within the hour.  Words carry the ability to shape your world. We let […]

Get Some Rose Colored Glasses

Constant criticizers make my eyes water. Overly-sensitive, insecure backbiters make my stomach turn. Liars make my ears bleed. Manipulators make my blood boil. Fakers make my head hurt. My eyes, stomach, ears, blood and head are all physically affected by the aforementioned persons. However, my heart is steadfast in love for them.  How can that […]

Seeing is Believing, Right?

Is this an old woman? Or a Young Woman?What you see is a reflection of your mindset. Seeing in believing? Certainly.  But is what we believe true? We can only interpret what we see by what we believe to be true.We see with our eyes. However, we interpret what we see with our brains.  The eye […]

A Picture Perfect Relationship

In the picture to the left you know that there is a glass. The determination of whether it is half-full or half-empty depends on your mindset. The liquid in the glass is debatable, as well. Water? Vodka? Mineral oil? Is that glass new or used? How long has the glass been sitting on the table? […]

Balance Schmalance!

It is no surprise that many of my fellow life coaches and counselors disagree with my philosophy on balance.  After all many coaches and counselors make a living with clients who seek “balance” in their lives. In my personal opinion AND EXPERIENCE I believe that the notion of life balance sets women up for failure […]

Kicking My "But"

Life Coach, Kamryn Adams When I was a little girl there was a Saturday morning cartoon called “School House Rock” from which I learned about conjunctions: “and”, “or” and the ubiquitous “BUT”.  Conjunctions link two thoughts together to give us a full picture of the scenario.  How we feel about ourselves can be directly linked to […]
