This is NOT what I look like right now.
Before you say anything, let me point out that I am in no way, shape, or form complaining about it. I am committed to sharing what is really happening with you, so that’s what this is.
In the photo here, I remember feeling so uncomfortable in my own skin that I didn’t even notice how amazing that core definition was. Like whoa, that’s incredible.
I was proud, don’t get me wrong, but it was because for the first time in my life I was physically strong and felt better than I had in… Well… Ever. Continue reading “Sustainable Health”
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.

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”
Unplug… I used to say “disconnect” but let’s be real… Disconnect? How NOT nourishing does that sound?!
The whole point of the act of turning everything off is to refill my cup, to rejuvenate, to reconnect with myself, my voice, my body, my soul. And how can you do that if you’re labeling the experience something so cold in the first place?
No wonder it was never working… And I had been trying the “disconnect” method for MONTHS with no change… So, disconnect went out the door and UNPLUG came in. Continue reading “Unplug”
I was on a call with a friend who lives across the country last night, she and I were pointing out things that we’ve been extremely grateful for during the past two weeks with what is going on in the world right now and one that we both agreed on was the ability to cook and prepare meals.
It hit me last week that there is a large majority of Americans that do not know how to cook, like… not even boil an egg.
It made me realize a different level of panic they may have felt in those moments that others may not have, like an actual thought of “how am I going to eat”. Continue reading “Be Prepared”

How often do you think about the ripple effect?
The ripple effect that comes from every interaction you have throughout your day. The ripple effect of every move, every word, every smile, every internal thought.
The impact that you are making within yourself and the world that surrounds you is way larger than you realize. Continue reading “The Ripple Effect”
Last year taught me that everything can change in a short period of time.
The day before 2019 started, I was unloading a truck of my stuff in a new state, into a new home, with a new family. Something that I always felt was way bigger than me, something I almost didn’t really have a say in deciding, I was just drawn to it in the most divine way… Continue reading “2019 Lessons”
