The Ripple Effect and Its Impact

The Ripple Effect and Its Impact

I’ve spoken about the ripple effect before and will continue to do so as it’s such a beautiful way to see the power of your actions, your words, your intentions.

Well, this morning one of my long time clients sent me a message sharing a win that one of her clients sent to her. It was thanking her for teaching her the Wheel of Intentional Living. It was explaining how different her life is now that she’s started making her mornings a priority and how powerful the act of consistent journaling has become in her world.

JAM

JAM

I made jam!

Yep. jam. I canned it up beautifully too.

It was my first “real” canning experience. I was a bit intimidated. I’ve had the supplies for years and have used my cans for herbs, sauces with short shelf life, etc. But to can for real for real, I was scared.

Anyway. I did it and I was successful which felts like quite an accomplishment, to be honest.

So, why did I decide to jam it up last night you ask? Continue reading “JAM”

Toxic Things

Toxic Things

“It wasn’t the toxic things I was putting in my body, it was the toxic STUFF I had in my life.” On one of the hangouts, I recently hosted, one of my clients made a comment about how when he met me his life was drastically different than it is now. Not only was he unhappy with where he was, he was on medication for severe heartburn and reflux issues. At the time, the doc told him it was the way he was eating so he changed his eating habits but the problem persisted so basically it looked like this was just going to be something he would deal with for life.

The Slow Down

The Slow Down

A lot has changed recently. What used to be normal isn’t present anymore and now a lot of us are left scrambling trying to figure out how we’re supposed to exist now. There are a lot of emotions coming up, some of which we’re feeling all in the same hour right now…some that we’ve never really faced before. It’s all a new reality to navigate. 

 

I realized that in this time I could really offer a place for you to plug in and get some insights, maybe even some comfort in not only understanding a little more what’s going on within us all as human beings due to things shifting, but also ways that you can make sure you’re taking care of what’s most important right now, YOU.

Be Prepared

Be Prepared

I was on a call with a friend who lives across the country last night, she and I were pointing out things that we’ve been extremely grateful for during the past two weeks with what is going on in the world right now and one that we both agreed on was the ability to cook and prepare meals.

It hit me last week that there is a large majority of Americans that do not know how to cook, like… not even boil an egg.

It made me realize a different level of panic they may have felt in those moments that others may not have, like an actual thought of “how am I going to eat”. Continue reading “Be Prepared”

Fun Facts

Fun Facts

Fun facts you might not know about me:

My daily driver is a 6 speed.

I thoroughly enjoy rock crawling in my Jeep, and I’m actually pretty good at it–mudding used to be my jam but the clean up isn’t worth it to me anymore.

I was 17 before I ever flew on an airplane. Continue reading “Fun Facts”

Check On Your Friends Who Live Alone

Check On Your Friends Who Live Alone

Check on your friends who live alone.
(well, all of your friends, read on please)

While you’re complaining about being cooped up in your house with your family or screaming kids, there are a lot of people who literally have no human interaction at all right now. You may miss going to the gym or getting alone time but they miss that simple trip to the gym or cafe or grocery store (minus the chaos and eerie feeling that is present right now) because that is usually the main and only source of their human interaction for the day or week.

I think it’s a beautiful time to remember that each of us has a different experience, a different reality. So, instead of complaining or judging or throwing a pity party, be grateful for what you have right now.

If you have a family that’s making you crazy right now, that’s okay. You’re allowed to feel overwhelmed by that and be exhausted too but please be grateful for them too. Be grateful you have a home with things to occupy each other or do together. Take this opportunity to enjoy each other more, maybe in a way you haven’t in a long time. Don’t take it for granted because some people would give anything to have someone to sit on the couch with right now, even if they’re jumping all over you or screaming.

Secret Sauce

Secret Sauce

Everyone is looking for the secret sauce, the answer to how to get all of the things they want and usually, we want it all right this very moment, right? Oh I know, I’ve been there too. 

This is something I encounter a lot in my world and unfortunately, the answer isn’t what most want to hear. There is no quick way… but the cool part of that truth is it sure does help differentiate between who’s ready to commit now and who still needs time. 

In the newest episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we talk about how accepting that consistency is the key to all of the things that we want is not always a fun realization. But we do talk about how to get past that, how to start now and allow the space for shifting, tweaking, and moving as needed along the way. 

If you’ve been around me for a while you already know that I always give it to you straight, even if it’s not necessarily what you want to hear. I also give you tools to help you get through it. Not around it or over it or under it, but THROUGH it, through to the other side where this thing, even if right now it’s annoying or uncomfortable or seems hard. Through to the other side were doing the things actually is your norm and a tool you know is the secret sauce that allows you to create whatever it is that you want. 

Jump into this conversation with me and let’s discover how you can make this work for you…

Daydreaming

Daydreaming

You may have heard me talk about how daydreaming is a large part of my daily ritual. Yep, daydreaming.

That’s the term I enjoy, it’s what feels lovely to me. When I sit in my quiet space in the morning I let my mind wander for a while. Sometimes I look around my room and am just filled with gratitude for this space, I notice the books, the candles, the little pieces of my journey I have strategically placed all around me and it makes my soul smile.

The Last Few Days

The Last Few Days

The last few days I’ve been hit in so many different directions.

I rarely actually let things get my down for long because I can see the divine timing, I can see the reasons, I can feel that even though some things are hard or heavy, they will be okay. and just because one thing is heavy, doesn’t mean everything is heavy.

I think we forget that sometimes, that just because one thing isn’t going great or hurts you, that doesn’t mean everything else automatically sucks too. Continue reading “The Last Few Days”
