Have you ever wondered how a journal can be so valuable? How a pen and paper can be something that some put on such a high pedestal that it is proclaimed as one of their most valuable tools?
Let’s flash back in time… this method has been being used by brilliant minds for as long as humans have been able to write. Documenting your thoughts, writing out your feelings, discovering new things about yourself or something you’re pondering by writing it down has provided us some of the best pieces of literature or education we have.
It can all start with a journal.
One of the most popular questions I’m asked is how to properly journal in a way that helps you.
Everyone says they don’t know what to write or feel silly so I decided to create not only a guide to why journaling works and how you can remove all of the stigmas around how it’s “supposed” to work so it can work for you but I also created a guide of prompts that you can download and use to help you when you’re feeling stuck.
The guide is provided in audio form, linked below. In the episode I break down what journaling really is, things to know, how to make time for it, and how you can make it best work for you. I also created a free downloadable list of ideas for you to use to start your own journaling journey.
The prompts can be easily downloaded onto your phone or laptop to access anytime you’d like.

I’m excited to share my favorite tool with you in a different and more detailed way than ever before. I hope you love it! Happy writing!!
Let’s start a discussion here; Is journaling a tool that you’re already using in your life? What is your favorite way to use it?
New Year, new me?
Ha. Nope. That’s not how it works. We all know that 9 times out of 10, resolutions don’t stick.
This topic has been hot on my mind for a couple of months now and i’ve been bursting at the seams to share more about this with as many people as I can.

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”
“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”
What to do when people are shitty….
I was in the shower pondering on the way different people approach different situations and I thought about that question; What do you do when people are shitty to you?
Well, I feel like we all may have a go-to reaction that we’ve developed over the years when faced with people being sucky towards us but is that really the best option?

I was finishing a book the other day and it promoted this insane overwhelming feeling of gratitude. One small statement caused me to go into deep thought about intentional living and why it works.
The statement: “This is why we practice”
Mindfulness mainly but all areas fit under the umbrella really.
Continue reading “Why We Practice”
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.

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.

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”
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.
