Slow Down

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeHappinessLeave a Comment

Over the last week I’ve been racing around running here and running there – trying to get everything done, ASAP. I moved into a new house a week ago and it’s been petal to the metal to get it set-up and livable. In addition, my sweet little dog, Maggie Lou, had another injury, this time to her low back and … Read More

What Would You Do For Love?

Have you ever done something for someone but gone about it kicking and screaming? Maybe someone asked you to help them move and you really didn’t want to but knew it would be nice if you helped out. Or someone asked you to attend an event that you really didn’t want to go to but you went anyway. We often … Read More

I Heart Boundaries.

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeBelief in self2 Comments

Boundaries are an amazing and powerful tool. Boundaries help you clarify what is important in your life. They tell the world and yourself that your needs are important. When I was younger I had no concept of a boundary or what that even meant. I worked when I was asked to work. I skipped workouts to spend time with friends … Read More

Noticing Resistance

Have you ever had a task in front of you that you need to tackle but all you want to do is anything but that task? I have an assignment from a coach I’m working with. Every week that I have to tackle one of these assignments, I delay doing it. Once I finally sit down at the 11th hour … Read More

Accepting What Is

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeBelief in self, Choices2 Comments

This can be the worst place to be sometimes. Because accepting what is, means that it’s not how you want it to be or how you thought it should be. How things “should” be is a whole other issue & living your life based on “shoulds” isn’t authentic to you or your values. Accepting what is means that you aren’t … Read More

It Doesn’t Have To Be Hard

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeChoices2 Comments

This week I surrendered an issue I had been dealing with for over the last three weeks.  To a few, it might look like I gave up.  To those that saw my struggle, I gave it all I got until it just wasn’t worth it to continue. I don’t know if it even matters the issue I was struggling with.  … Read More

Life’s Hurdles

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeChoices2 Comments

When I was in high school, I had a friend who ran the hurdles. She was a year older, a few inches taller than me and with very long lean legs. Watching her run the hurdles was a beautiful sight. I probably only watched her once but it stuck with me. She raced down the track, arms poised in 90-degree … Read More

January 2015. In like a lion?

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeChoices, HolidaysLeave a Comment

It’s been awhile since I last wrote. I took some time off for the holidays and as soon as January began, life had me off and running. I thought it was March that was in like a lion, not January.   It seemed that each day brought a new high and a low. It felt like the lows were short-lived, thankfully, … Read More

Season of Light

Kerstin McInnis, A Cake Walk LifeCareers, ChoicesLeave a Comment

This time of year, during the dark days, it’s hard to remember to be light.  We have long to-do lists and obligations that can weigh us down. But if we look around, we have reminders everywhere to be the light for ourselves and others.  You see the flames of the menorah, the lights on a  Christmas tree, or the glowing … Read More
