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. Continue reading “The Morning”
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.

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…

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.

There’s a lot of buzz around clearing space these days and personally, I’m stoked about that. In a world that has idealized the act of being busy and hustle, it’s important that people are talking about the massive value of creating some space to live life according to how you want to really be living your life.
Creating space mentally, physically, emotionally, and energetically allows you to be so much more self-aware and also provides the ability to be proactive in all areas versus reactive. And in a world that’s praising busy and reactive, the real power lies in the ability to be PROACTIVE.
