“If you go into every day ‘waging war’ then war and struggle is exactly what you will get. It will always be hard.”
I was given this advice several years ago by a friend over lunch and it has proven to be one of the most impactful statements anyone has ever made to me…
Sometimes even when the reality isn’t really all that rosy we continue, out of pure subconscious comfortability to only see things through our trusty rose-colored glasses.
The truth is, most of us were given those glasses at a really young age and they’ve become something we’ve carried in our pockets ever since. We put them on every time our experience was the only one that was comfortable to see and over the years they’ve become something that we depend on, unbeknownst to us.
Contrary to what most people talking about lifestyle, building a business and being growth minded say… I absolutely enjoy TV.
Disappearing into a show or movie serves my soul in such a beautiful way. Continue reading “Enjoying TV”
Setting the stage for your day is literally one of the BIGGEST things you can do for yourself. It’s a freaking game changer, that’s for sure.
I feel like in several posts I’ve made, almost every training, and more conversations than I could even begin to count, having a morning routine is a topic of discussion. It’s something that’s a constant piece and something I highly suggest. So, in this week’s episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we’re talking all about how to start your day on YOUR terms.

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.

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”
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.
