  1. Define what luck means to you. My luck is getting a parking spot close to the door; having a friend call me that who I was thinking about; or having someone email when I was “going” to email them. The best luck is having things done with ease and no effort at all on my part.
  2. Believe you are lucky. If you think you are lucky you are.
  3. Be responsible for your own luck. Every habit will create more luck or less luck.
  4. Luck is a feeling. Notice when your heart is soaring and full of gratitude. That is luck. (Or abundance, gratitude or law of attraction)
  5. Keep a luck journal. Keep a list of your lucky parking spots, how your friend called that you were thinking about or how you walk into a store and there is no waiting line. Luck happens all the time and you just need to be aware of it.



"Chere has the kind of personality and energy and open heart that it was easy to immediately trust, connect and open up to her about whatever was on my mind. I never felt judgment. She would respond to my comments, queries, confusions, frustrations, celebrations with more thought provoking questions and often shared her own life experiences to relate to me in a way that made me feel a genuine sense of caring. Chere always brought a sense of life’s realities and still found endless possibilities. Our coaching did not center around nutrition per se, but I know Chere has knowledge in this area. In fact, she has a depth of experience in many things – speaking, diet/nutrition, small business success and life success. I feel like I have gained a friend for life and could call her any time and she would give me guidance or just boost my day. Chere’s a gem.”
All the best,
Libby Graves, EAG Associates

Chere’s note: Libby hired me to help her develop a successful coaching practice, while still being the best mom and wife.. She also wanted to know more about nutrition.
In 90 days Libby identified ways to optimize her energy levels, her standards and boundaries, and how to live the “Best Libby life.” She identified her values, and created her “Absolute Yes” life list, and her recipe for her ideal day. She also identified her ideal client and wrote her introduction coaching letter. Libby truly was an amazing client who felt like she was living it “all.” She was my joy!

Quit waiting to be happy and healthy and call me today 952 937 5697 to set up your 30 min energy coaching session before the busy holidays. Maybe the BEST gift you can give yourself.

Happy Leap Year everyone! I believe Friday the thirteenths are lucky so February 29th must be extra lucky as I have waited four years for it. Because leap years are rarer than normal years, they have become lucky omens. Anything started on this day is assured success.

"Luck is when opportunity knocks and you answer"
—Author Unknown

Everyone wants a successful life and lore tells us today is the day it will manifest itself. But are you ready? What is the foundation of your successful life? Your health! Without health you have nothing.

All the money in the world is useless if you can’t enjoy it. You can have a loving caring relationships with amazing people but if you don’t have your health you can’t really enjoy family and friends either. Health is hope and hope is everything. Are you ready for some luck today?

Anything started today is assured success. Maybe today is the day you start a new healthy habit like drinking water instead of a soda or eat a piece of fruit instead of a vending machine candy bar. Or how about actually cooking a meal and sitting down to eat it. Four years from now on the next leap year do you picture yourself successful and full of vibrant health? Only you can create your lucky, healthy life. Health is hope and hope is everything.

Remember, if you have not made the decision to be amazing, happier and healthier, you have unconsciously made the decision to be average, unhappy and unhealthy. Better get busy!

Thirty days hath September,

April, June and November.

All the rest have thirty-one,

Except February alone

Which hath twenty-eight, in fine,

Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.

Busy People Can Have Time to Cook Guacamole Without Guilt

Danielle’s makes the best guacamole I know. For my birthday Danielle whipped up this pre birthday meal treat. I almost didn’t need to eat the rest of the meal.

  • 3 Haas avocadoes, halved, seeded, peeled and chunked
  • 1 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • Salt to taste
  • Lime juice to taste

This makes about two cups.

In a large bowl place avocadoes, tomatoes, and onions. Add salt and lime juice to taste. Serve with warm conversation and rice crackers if you are gluten intolerant. You can also place a dollop of guacamole on a slice of organic turkey deli meat and roll up for quick healthy lunch. Too busy to make the guac, put a few strips of avocado with a splash of lime juice in a piece of your favorite deli meat and roll up.

Read more about why I like to eat avocadoes every day.


5 Ingredients to healthy guacamole

Best birthday present: Danielle flying home to be with me all weekend and her making me guacamole!

Where is Chere savoring life?

Savoring is a quality that happy people naturally have in abundance.

Savoring = to mindfully engage in thoughts or behaviors that heighten the effect of positive events on positive feelings. There are 3 temporal forms of Savoring: (1) Anticipatory (2) In the Moment and (3) Reminiscent. We can savor a positive event before it happens by getting excited in preparation for it, we can savor the positive event as it event as it occurs and we can savor a positive event by remembering it. What are you savoring today?

Nothing tastes as good as having your whole family at the table for your birthday. Thank you Danielle for flying home and making my birthday significant.

Took this picture on my birthday in a bank…
guess you can’t take a picture in a bank
EVEN on your birthday!!!

Savoring sweet emails from my ONE high school friend who I am still connected to.

“Hi Chere!
It's always a good feeling to get your Taste Life email. Besides the interesting and relevant content, I smile when I see you holding the bowl of bing cherries. You look the same as in high school!!”
Take care,
Debbie J.
