Check On Your Friends Who Live Alone

Check On Your Friends Who Live Alone

Check on your friends who live alone.
(well, all of your friends, read on please)

While you’re complaining about being cooped up in your house with your family or screaming kids, there are a lot of people who literally have no human interaction at all right now. You may miss going to the gym or getting alone time but they miss that simple trip to the gym or cafe or grocery store (minus the chaos and eerie feeling that is present right now) because that is usually the main and only source of their human interaction for the day or week.

I think it’s a beautiful time to remember that each of us has a different experience, a different reality. So, instead of complaining or judging or throwing a pity party, be grateful for what you have right now.

If you have a family that’s making you crazy right now, that’s okay. You’re allowed to feel overwhelmed by that and be exhausted too but please be grateful for them too. Be grateful you have a home with things to occupy each other or do together. Take this opportunity to enjoy each other more, maybe in a way you haven’t in a long time. Don’t take it for granted because some people would give anything to have someone to sit on the couch with right now, even if they’re jumping all over you or screaming.

Secret Sauce

Secret Sauce

Everyone is looking for the secret sauce, the answer to how to get all of the things they want and usually, we want it all right this very moment, right? Oh I know, I’ve been there too. 

This is something I encounter a lot in my world and unfortunately, the answer isn’t what most want to hear. There is no quick way… but the cool part of that truth is it sure does help differentiate between who’s ready to commit now and who still needs time. 

In the newest episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we talk about how accepting that consistency is the key to all of the things that we want is not always a fun realization. But we do talk about how to get past that, how to start now and allow the space for shifting, tweaking, and moving as needed along the way. 

If you’ve been around me for a while you already know that I always give it to you straight, even if it’s not necessarily what you want to hear. I also give you tools to help you get through it. Not around it or over it or under it, but THROUGH it, through to the other side where this thing, even if right now it’s annoying or uncomfortable or seems hard. Through to the other side were doing the things actually is your norm and a tool you know is the secret sauce that allows you to create whatever it is that you want. 

Jump into this conversation with me and let’s discover how you can make this work for you…

Daydreaming

Daydreaming

You may have heard me talk about how daydreaming is a large part of my daily ritual. Yep, daydreaming.

That’s the term I enjoy, it’s what feels lovely to me. When I sit in my quiet space in the morning I let my mind wander for a while. Sometimes I look around my room and am just filled with gratitude for this space, I notice the books, the candles, the little pieces of my journey I have strategically placed all around me and it makes my soul smile.

The Last Few Days

The Last Few Days

The last few days I’ve been hit in so many different directions.

I rarely actually let things get my down for long because I can see the divine timing, I can see the reasons, I can feel that even though some things are hard or heavy, they will be okay. and just because one thing is heavy, doesn’t mean everything is heavy.

I think we forget that sometimes, that just because one thing isn’t going great or hurts you, that doesn’t mean everything else automatically sucks too. Continue reading “The Last Few Days”

Stillness

Stillness

“To be calm is the highest achievement of the self.” -Zen proverb

Lately I’ve spent more time in stillness. I’ve learned that on my journey to know myself on a different level, slow has become my preferred place to be.

Even when things are swift or moving quickly, I find myself standing in it all very differently than I have before. Continue reading “Stillness”

Quit Shoulding All Over Yourself

Quit Shoulding All Over Yourself

We’ve all fallen into the cycle of saying YES too much, sometimes we don’t know how to break it.  In my latest podcast episode, we talk about how to increase your self-awareness to start serving yourself in a better way. But what about the part where we do things a certain way because we think we’re “supposed to” ? Nobody seems to talk about the limits we place on ourselves or the ones that life has placed on us that we don’t even recognize sometimes. 

Welp- in this episode we do just that! 

Dive into the conversation of how to start really going deeper into living life on your terms.

Being Vulnerable

Being Vulnerable

Being vulnerable never gets easier, even when it becomes your active way of engaging.

The thing that I find to be most challenging about vulnerability is letting go of the reaction others may have to it.

It can be crushing to be vulnerable, to really put yourself out there with someone only to have them turn away or choose that it’s too much.

But you have to remember two things…
1. You’re not doing this for them. Being vulnerable is a pure act of self love and living in your own truth, no matter what.

2. Someone’s reaction to you has absolutely nothing to do with you and has everything to do with them, their own situation, possibly their own fears, and the filter they choose to see life through.

So, you cannot take it personally.

Instead, you allow yourself to feel whatever feelings come up, honor them, dissect them if needed but then remind yourself how courageous you are and that vulnerability is a super power.

Keep going.
Keep growing.
Those you are meant to be with along the way will cherish the rawness of you, not run from it.
