It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

Darby has a passion for health, adventure, exploration and enlightenment of the human spirit.  Her diverse background brings a wealth of experience that comes in many forms. While moving around the world with her husband’s job, Darby became a University Director of Academic Computer Services and instructor, a Dale Carnegie facilitator, an Elementary School teacher, a Pilates trainer and studio owner. Her world travels allowed her the opportunity to experience different cultures, religions, races, and economic classes which lends to her flexibility and open-minded nature. 

In 2009, Darby’s husband was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. After nine months of guiding and supporting her husband and family, he passed away. This tragic life event guided Darby to discover energy healing and life coaching.  Being certified in these fields synchronized all of her passions and skill sets- her technical and analytical abilities learned as a computer programmer and problem solver, her relationship building abilities she mastered as a Dale Carnegie instructor, her passion for exploration and curiosity as a teacher of children, and her appreciation of health and well being as a professional Pilates trainer.   Solving problems, deepening relationships, exploring possibilities, and physical wellbeing all blend beautifully in Darby’s client focused approach to healing.

Darby has a gift for seeing the good in all and making the most of each moment.  Many of the tools Darby brings to the partnership come from personal experiences and Darby’s ability to see every life challenge as a gift.  She truly feels that we all have the ability to live a life of love, compassion and peace.

Embrace your Imperfection (video)

embrace-your-imperfection

I had a project I was procrastinating that was long overdue. I kept waiting for everything to be exactly perfect before I started it, yet that time never came. The concern that people weren’t going to like it if it wasn’t top notch loomed over me for weeks. Yet the guilt for not completing it hung right next to it.

 

That started me wondering why I was so concerned about it being “perfect.” Then it hit me…that was what had been drilled into me. From the time we are a child in school through adulthood working in our career, we are “graded” on the quality of our work. This can cause fear, which leads to stress, which leads to the dragging of feet, which leads to more stress.

Interrupted BBC Interview - Just roll with it (pun intended)
Did you see the interview on BBC with the professor whose kids came wandering in the door behind him? What a great demonstration of things don't always go as we plan. So how do you handle it? We are trained that things have to be "professional" and perfect. It is true that we don't want distractions, but sometimes life offers us them anyways. So...roll with it (pun intended).

How Are You?... Really?
"I'm fine" is a typical response when someone asks how you are. Are you honest with your answer? Are you present with the person asking...or are you on auto pilot? It is okay to be honest, yet be careful not to dwell on the negative.

Standing up for the Seastar…and my values
Have you ever not stood up for what you believed in to let someone else save face? We don't need to belittle anyone, but we also don't need to stand by idly and watch something we know is wrong. Sometimes I am afraid to ruffle feathers so I don't speak up. Yet there are polite ways to get a point across...next time I will choose to speak up...in a non-condescending yet informative way.
