The Seeds You Plant in a Storm

When the world seems to be crashing down around you, remember, the one thing you can control amid any uncertainty is YOU. Take the time to get clear on some especially important questions in the midst of hardship – Questions like: “Who do I want to be on the other side of this hardship?” Will I be the same or will I be better? Am I wasting this time or am I using it wisely?” Your thoughts, habits, and actions are seeds being planted and when the storm eventually passes, because it always does, whatever you’ve planted will surely grow.

Audience takeaways:

  • A seed of optimism. Being positive doesn’t make all things better but being negative always makes things worse. When you focus on what’s right instead of what’s wrong, when you visualize the best-case scenario instead of focusing on the worst, you’ll generate the fuel you need to keep pushing forward.
  • A seed of creativity. Challenges present an opportunity to be more creative and think outside of the box. Living in a comfort zone confines us from seeing and experiencing endless possibilities, but challenges push us to explore, innovate, and create new ways of thinking.
  • A seed of self-care. Too often we put our needs on the back burner, but that’s a one-way ticket to burnout. It’s important to prioritize your wellbeing, and it’s even more important during trying times. When you take care of yourself first, you will then be able to take care of others from the overflow.

"Karen is personable, down to earth, and very knowledgeable in the subject of grief & life’s most challenging moments. At one of my company’s workshops, she grabbed everyone’s attention and lifted our spirits with her messages of self-care and self-awareness. I highly recommend Karen for any speaking engagements especially for conflict management, grief, and healing.

When Karen shared her personal story and gave the example of being called to “Get Up of Give Up”, I got chills. Immediately following her speaker session, my manager and I both exclaimed, “we need to ask her back!” She made my day.”

Leader in retail setting

Karen’s smile, passion, energy, and heart are contagious and in just 30 minutes, our team was reinvigorated to continue onward- whatever that looked like for each of us.”
