When it’s your lifestyle, it never “turns off”. It simply is your way of being.
You can be present and still have the habit of stopping what you’re doing to write a post when something pops into your mind.
You can still relax and remember to take a photo that you intend on posting for your brand.
It’s not made up. It’s not like you’re pretending, not even a little bit, actually. It just becomes a part of the way you live your life. So much so that you don’t even have to think about it. It just becomes a natural thing you do.
It’s something you have to make space for at first. As you’re learning to balance things a little differently than you’ve ever known before in order to make this freedom based lifestyle your reality, you have to start making space to pay attention. Space to notice the little things. Space to be present. Space to hear the messages you’re meant to hear and in turn share what you’re meant to share. Continue reading “The Method To My Madness”

YOU’RE JUST TOO MUCH
If I had a dollar for every time I heard that…. I’d own an island.
“You’re just too much.”
“Do you even know what you want?”
“How can you expect that?”
“Why do you need more than what you have right now?”
I was told these things most of my life. I was made to feel like I was out of line for wanting the things that I wanted. I was made to feel like I was “too much” when I would fully express myself as who I am at my core. So it’s no wonder that I spent most of my life trying to tone it down.

THE UGLY TRUTH AROUND ALL THOSE SELF-HELP PRODUCTIVITY GURU BOOKS…
I do not believe that there is a “one way guide” to planning and being organized. No offense to the people who’ve made millions of dollars writing books and creating methods of play by plays on how to be more productive, but it’s all bullshit and it’s almost criminal to put it out there as the “ANSWER TO EVERYONE PROBLEMS”.
And here’s why….
WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT. Continue reading “Intentional Action”
I HAVE A TAN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2 YEARS. And it wasn’t sprayed on..
I’ve gotten more vitamin D in the past 3 weeks than I have in 2 years.
What does that matter?
Well, last summer I was rocking the total ghost pale skin tone all the way through the end of the summer. Which means that I wasn’t getting out. Like at all.

“Build Your Empire”… WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN??
I say it a lot, I’m not going to lie. But I was just thinking about it today and I wonder if anyone actually knows what it means.
It’s thrown around… A LOT.
Like “hustle” and “authentic”, it’s become a super sexy phrase to use. But just like those other words its meaning has gotten twisted.
Or has it?
Because let’s be real, HUSTLE means something totally different to me than it does to other people. I still use the word but not in the context that a lot of people do now. I hustle out work every day, but on my terms. That doesn’t mean I’m hunched over a desk in a dark room miserable for 12 hours a day.
Am I working 12 hours a day? Ya sometimes. But it’s in the car. On the patio. In my bed snuggled with my pups. It’s at the coffee shop. In the line at the grocery store. Sitting at a table sipping wine. Continue reading “Build Your Empire”
