Truth is, sometimes I can have the best day ever and still be sad at the end of it all.
Now before you jump to conclusions or start to type out something trying to “make me feel better”, keep reading because that is not at all my point here.
I’m happy. Like genuinely happy. I love what I do. I enjoy my work. I have an awesome family. Good friends. A beautiful home. Sweet puppies… and the list goes on. Continue reading “Sometimes I Am Sad”
Sometimes you have to be your own motivation.
In those moments when you find yourself slipping and it feels like you’ll never get fully back on track I’ve learned that nothing motivates me more than reminding myself where I’ve been and what I’m capable of.
This picture is from last summer. I had built more muscle than I knew was possible and honestly, I felt uncomfortable as fuck about it. I loved the body and curves I built but it was just unlike the shell I had lived in for most of my life so it seriously took some getting used to. Continue reading “Honoring every piece”
“You can have it all”. Really? Can you really though?
It’s funny, I’ve spent so much time intentionally building this world I live in but still question “Can I really have all of this?”
I mean, I look around at this beautiful home we’ve created, it’s so filled with love, I’m so filled with love and I think about having a strong, healthy body, beautiful skin, being in control of my thoughts and reactions, expanding my mind daily, writing brilliant pieces every day, having amazing relationships with my friends and family, kissing my soul mate before I go to bed every night… AND amazing mermaid hair… AND driving the vehicle of my dreams every day… AND on top of all of that, I get to make money by living on my terms every day and it doesn’t feel hard… WHO THE FUCK DO I THINK I AM TO HAVE ALL OF THIS?
And to want even MORE? Continue reading “You Can Have It All”
“HOW MUCH MORE MONEY I COULD HAVE MADE IN MY ALREADY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IF I HAD KNOWN HOW MUCH MORE MONEY CREATING PEACE IN YOUR LIFE GENERATES?”
I first hired Jamie almost a year ago. I talk often about the shifts she’s helped me make in my business, because those are the most tangible and easiest to explain.
I had this business idea when I first spoke with her that I had no idea how to execute… we hit my “long term, where I see this business at its peak” goal so long ago, that my original “long term” goal feels like a joke at this point. I’m hitting in a month close to what I used to hit in a year.
And believe it or not, business is the LEAST of what Jamie has helped me improve in my life. I don’t say that for drama – it’s the actual truth.
I had been watching Jamie’s content for over a year before I hired her. She had me intrigued with all this mindset stuff she talked about. I believed in all of it, but I believed it for other people. I didn’t believe I’d ever be capable of operating my life in that way, but it was cool to read her stories. Continue reading “How Finding Peace Made Her More Money”
I was reading an article this morning about fear… and honestly, fear is something I spend a lot of time paying attention to when it pops up because it has so much to tell us if we’re willing to listen.
So, this morning I decided to extend my morning practice into some meditation coloring. As I was filling in the swirls of the mandala, I let my thoughts flow freely. And after about 10 minutes of that I started to ask myself “What are you so scared of?”
Because I’ve been feeling the presence of fear lately, but it hasn’t been clear as to why or what it was that I’m scared of in my current situation. Continue reading “Overcoming Fear”
Someone just reminded me that it is Friday.
Honestly, other than knowing who’s calls are on which days I typically don’t pay any attention to the what day of the week it is.
In my world, my weekends are pretty similar to any other day. Granted, I don’t do calls on the weekend or take appointments but I’m still creating, still responding to emails and supporting my clients, and still building my brand.
To some of you that might sound terrible… you know to “work on the weekends” but here’s the thing I want you to understand… I’ve built my life this way on purpose. To where every day is amazing. Every day I get to spend my time doing what I love in one way or another. And I’ve designed it to where everything I choose to do each day fits directly into what I’m building. So basically, me living is me “working”. It’s all the same to me.
Spending time alone… strengthening mindset, resetting, and quieting so I can listen.
Visiting with family or friends… fueling my soul, gaining different perspectives, and keeping my heart happy and relationships balanced.
Writing about my life or my experiences… clearing my mind, fueling my soul, and spreading my message in the process.
Driving or flying anywhere… time to think. Clear my mind. Get creative. Record voice messages to myself, my team, my clients. Catch up on audio-books or podcasts.
Getting my hair done… time to catch up with an old friend (fuel for my soul), gain perspective through those conversations and have some time to be disconnected from my phone in the process. Plus the tangible finished product provides a very necessary part of my brand as well.
