Advice: “Keep getting more clear and more concise with the way your plan flows.”
Sounds easy right?
What if I told you I can give you ass pats and high fives AND hold you to a high standard of accountability?
Did you know that both of these things are possible to give and/or receive within the same conversation?
You might know this already but l speak from experience when I say that a reminder is needed frequently. Stress is possibly the biggest hurdle you’re facing right now and you don’t even realize it… because it’s become so “normal”.
In a world that tries to measure you by how fast you are, stress is almost inevitable… or so it probably seems.
I’m not saying I live a stress-free life because that’s not entirely true but I sure do try. I used to use what I saw as “motivation” to show up like pressure in extreme volume everywhere in my life and move me forward. It took me a while before I realized that that kind of stress wasn’t really suited for anyone. Not anyone who is trying to live in fullness, health, ease, and joy at least.
But damn did I try to do all of it at the same time. Then the good stuff was a direct result of the overbearing stress moments and somewhere along the line, my body started to resent it… insert more stress here.
Stress compromises your immune system. It can also cause sleeplessness, an increased probability of not eating properly, and/or turning to vices more frequently for an “out”.
All of which also can affect your body’s ability to fight off illness.
Please keep that in mind when you choose something over that mindfulness practice that you know should be a priority.
Please keep this in mind the next time you choose junk or no food over something that you know is nourishing.
Please keep this in mind the next time you choose anything oversleep repeatedly.
Being aware is a great tool.
Being prepared is also a valuable use of your energy, but panic and stress ultimately will add to the problem. Preparation is key to preventing more stress and panic.
Not sure how to do that? Or even where to get started?
I’m working on a bit of a guide style sharing that will help in some of these areas. If you’re interested in receiving it (it’s free btw), Make sure you sign up for my newsletter list.
Small shifts to reduce stress are what we’re looking for.
Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.
I learned a few years ago that the moment I stopped trying to “force” anything with anyone else and focused on mastering myself and only myself that everything… shifted.
And I mean, everything.
Too many people go put themselves through slow torture their entire lives by being overly concerned with what others are doing, saying, or being. It’s not your job to master them. That’s their job. And I promise you that you’re not doing ANYONE a favor by putting that much time into “trying” to “help someone”. Continue reading “Break Yourself Free”
People who want a solution will find one.
People who don’t will either keep complaining or ignore you completely when you try to help.
You can throw someone a million solutions or pieces of help and if they aren’t really looking for it or aren’t ready, it won’t matter. It will be instantly followed by a bunch of excuses to match.
That’s okay. Everyone comes to things in their own time.
You have to stop taking that on as YOUR responsibility.
No matter how hard you try, until someone is ready, they won’t hear you and instead you’re breaking yourself down and exhausting your efforts in the meantime. Continue reading “Solutions”
A while back I got a suggestion to record something talking about my biggest “ah-ha moment” and as I thought about it, a bunch of things popped into my head. As I was revisiting it one stuck out more than the others.
Honestly, this has been a moment that birthed a thousand more and is something that I will forever be grateful for.
Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear something and then something inside of you just clicks? That’s what this moment was.
I was listening to Gary Vee speak at his book launch for the #askgaryvee book and something he said sparked a curiosity in me that’s been very much alive ever since. Continue reading “Greatest Gift”
What if you were just open to ANY and ALL possibilities in ALL areas of your life?
Well, that one got me good because I could have sworn that I was in fact THAT open.
I believed that I was no longer trying to force the Universe’s hand into only delivering to me in the way that I had lined out and that was it.
The truth is, I have done that in so many ways and in so many places and that has been completely life-changing over the past couple of years. Surrender, remember?
I told you about it. I explained how it works. And how hard it can be. And I got really good at it.

Ladies, I stopped using the word “period” to describe my monthly cycle and you should too.
Did you know that period is short for what doctors would describe as a “periodic illness”?
Yes, you read that right.
Our monthly cycle, something so natural, something that quite literally creates life was referred to as a periodic ILLNESS by medical professionals, thus leading to us calling this natural thing we do, “our period”.
Say what?! Continue reading “Bleeding”
We all get frazzled sometimes, overwhelmed.
Sometimes all of those plates you have spinning in the air can feel pretty damn daunting. And sometimes the responsibility of all of that and your purpose can feel heavy.
Humans have feelings.
Humans get overwhelmed from time to time.
Trust me, coming from a girl who used to operate like a robot in a lot of ways and just avoid the feelings… it’s not worth it. It will always always always catch up with you at some point in one way or another. Continue reading “Frazzled”
I saw someone say… “Make sure you wear your shoes ladies, there’s glass everywhere.”
And I’m not sure I’ve stopped having since.
YES. Massive glass ceilings busted through today girls.
For any woman, anywhere whos ever achieved something no-one thought you could, did better in a position than they expected you to, rose to the top, dented the universe, or proved that “strong…for a girl” isn’t a thing, were JUST STRONG…. We just made history. Continue reading “Glass Everywhere”
