Investing in Yourself 

How many times have you thought that something for your health is “too expensive”…..consider looking at areas of your budget that you might be able to replace health with. The fast food for a homemade pot of soup (I guarantee cheaper, packed with flavor and at least two meals), the $5.00 coffee for making your own (using amazing and health benefiting essential oils), the weekend shopping trips for an afternoon of DIY natural skin care products? 

Trust me when I say I not only used to weigh 100 pounds more, but I was a toxic mess who also was in financial debt, tired all the time, ate crappy food, used toxic cleaners, didn’t honor my body AT ALL… I overcame it all with mindfulness—choices on where I was investing and I began investing in myself, rather than what I thought was important. 
You can too! I would love to walk the path of health with you!

Monday Mindfulness 

Good Morning and Happy Monday! 

It is my greatest belief that pausing to check in with yourself and become aware is our greatest tool in then knowing what we need or to recognize all that is good.

Pause. Take a breathe. Listen.

Taking Back Your Power 

I have come to connect that when I feel diminished or lethargic, it is a leak of energy/power that needs to be sealed. Whether the leak is coming from people in our lives who drain us, physical pain, mental worries, spiritual disconnect, etc, taking time to practice self-care—sometimes in radical form—is the best thing we can do for ourselves and our personal power.  

Today, I am choosing to take back my power by practicing self-care in the forms of connection, bubble baths, writing, good coffee and time to be alone. 

What will you do today to take back your power?

A Habit of Gratitude 

We are headed into the season where gratitude and thankfulness seems to be on everyone’s radar a bit more. What if instead, we all chose to make gratitude a habit everyday! I often teach that it isn’t about being grateful for the obvious—those are great—but what if you started to look closer for the less obvious things to be grateful for? 

Today, I am grateful for being called on my cranky mood because I got to make a choice to shift. I am grateful for the ability to treat myself to a house cleaner so I can rest my body. I am grateful for understanding. I am grateful for opportunities. I am grateful for consistency. 
What are you grateful for?

18 Before 2018

Can you believe there is just 12ish weeks left in 2017? You might gasp (and I do) but you might also feel like that still gives you plenty of time to get so stuff done. Have you thought about some goals that you have to finish out the year?

Here is what I came up with for me:
 finish the draft of my book
 return to walking 2 miles daily
 save at least $1000
 plan (and reserve) a vacation
 secure income
 eliminate what doesn’t feed my soul
 add 10 people to my team
 eat sushi at least 3x
 read 4 books
 write blog post on each blog 4x
 reconnect with friends, purposely
 have less pain
 go on an overnight date
 get my new planner ready for 2018
 reach long distance clients
 eat real breakfast 3x week
 let go of perfection
 lean into loving myself more

A simple reminder of peace. A knowing that there must be an acknowledgment of the mud in order to witness the blossom. 

For myself I am realizing again that life is a balance of  evolving and being still with what is. 

When pain strikes, pausing to feel that I am alive. When joy comes, taking it all in as beautiful light. When worry takes over, coming back to the present breath. 

Ponder the idea of blossoming from the mud in your life, and taking part in being present when life show up.
