I haven’t lifted in well over a year.
I’m extremely grateful for my foundation, for what I had built in this body. It’s held strong through over 18 months of deep healing and today when I stepped back into the gym, I was pleasantly surprised by how strong this body still is… even after a very long break.
I’m in awe. And honestly, I had been avoiding this like whoa. After 10 minutes, that old excitement and joy came flowing back over me.

I remember being told that balance didn’t exist. That if I wanted to truly build something I just had to keep my head down and do the work.
Good thing I don’t always follow instructions because that would have never worked. When I did try to operate that way back when I was working a “day job”, it landed me in the hospital more times than one.
The truth is, craving that balance has led me down one of the best paths I could have imagined and as a result, I get to share it with other people so that they can have it too. Continue reading “High Performers”
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”
“On Wednesdays we wear pink!”
No, I’m just kidding… Well, maybe sometimes I do but that’s not my point. While I was creating my latest podcast episode I just kept saying that in my head the entire time, haha. Insert your favorite Mean Girls quote here! Continue reading “Wednesdays”
There is a ripple effect that we all have the ability to play a part in, if we choose to see it.
It’s not overwhelming. It’s not a big huge task oriented thing. It’s an agreement you make with you. And then keep making every day.
I’ve always believed in the statement “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. I believe that leading by example is the best and most effective way to lead. I believe that that committing to live of integrity is the way to impacting your our life and that of others. And I believe that we must learn to control what we can control.

Do you only leave reviews when you’re unpleased?
When something didn’t go your way or you feel like you were mistreated?
It seems that there is a large group of people who only utilize the review option online when they are pissed and need to rip an establishment a new one over something.
Is that you?
Or do you leave reviews when you have a GOOD experience too? Continue reading “Reviews”
Having a ring side seat to watch my clients win is something I’ll never get tired of witnessing.
It’s truly an honor.
It’s an honor to be entrusted with their most vulnerable moments, their fears, their worries, their losses, and their moments they see as “not good enough” or not making it.

There’s a piece of my reality that I rarely talk about fully, up until recently that is.
It’s something I’ve lived with, learned to navigate, and have had to focus on daily for 20 years. It’s also something that makes me who I am. It’s something I know I’m not an island about. It’s something that most people can relate to but never want to say anything because we feel like we’re complaining or making excuses. When in reality, we’re just talking about what is OUR actual existence.

As I sit down to do my planning this week, I’m doing things a little differently and so should you.
Every Sunday for, well like 10+ years I have sat down to plan out my week. At one point it was a necessity because I had like 5 jobs to keep track of, now it’s a non-negotiable because I prioritize balance above all else.
You see, I make sure there is space for clients, for work, for writing, for moving my body, for preparing my meals, for spending time with my loved ones, for learning, for being outside, for working through my apprenticeship, and this week I’m adding in specific hours to educate myself deeper on the systemic racism in this country.

A couple of years ago someone asked me what brought me joy and honestly, I froze. I didn’t know what to say. I wasn’t sure how to answer that question at all.
I mean, my business brought me joy, my clients made me happy, my successes we’re great but actual JOY? I was fresh out of ideas.
So, I started down this path of seeking job in all of the little moments that occur. Mix that with gratitude and it’s proving to be a very rewarding experience to create.
So I ask you, how much are you leaving on the table without joy?
The truth is, probably a LOT. Continue reading “Finding the Joy”
