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.

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.

“If you go into every day ‘waging war’ then war and struggle is exactly what you will get. It will always be hard.”
I was given this advice several years ago by a friend over lunch and it has proven to be one of the most impactful statements anyone has ever made to me…

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”
Setting the stage for your day is literally one of the BIGGEST things you can do for yourself. It’s a freaking game changer, that’s for sure.
I feel like in several posts I’ve made, almost every training, and more conversations than I could even begin to count, having a morning routine is a topic of discussion. It’s something that’s a constant piece and something I highly suggest. So, in this week’s episode of the Lifestyle Creation Podcast, we’re talking all about how to start your day on YOUR terms.

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.
