Down 11 Pounds

Down 11 Pounds

First picture, I’m standing at 128 lbs and feeling excellent. I hadn’t been lifting consistency but my nutrition was pretty solid.

Second picture, I’m down 11 lbs… Most of which was probably muscle but that’s just an assumption.

This loss was not on purpose. Not even a little bit! It followed a month long battle with a cold, then influenza mixed with a bunch a stress that ended me up in a pretty ugly bout with my hypoglycemia. I haven’t had an episode that bad in over a year. It took days to recover. I could barely move, let alone stand. It took everything I had to drink water or 3 bites of oatmeal. It was terrible.

I felt lifeless. I was scared. I remember waking up my boyfriend telling him it was worse than I thought and I was scared to go to the hospital. We decided I’d get strict and try to fight it, even if that meant him reminding me to drink pedialyte every hour because it was the last thing I wanted to do.

Do you know what being in that kind of physical state does to your mental state? It makes you think you’re the worst person in the world. It convinces you that you’re a burden on those who love you. It convinces you that it’s all your fault and if you weren’t such a terrible person then you wouldn’t have let your body get to this state in the first place. It makes you feel ashamed for something you truly can’t control. you find yourself apologizing for asking for help even though you really need it. Continue reading “Down 11 Pounds”

I’ve Been A Little Quiet Lately

I’ve Been A Little Quiet Lately

I’ve been a little quiet lately, I know but sometimes when life is happening and it’s not just MY story to tell… as things transpire I have to keep it to myself. As I’ve been learning to mesh my life with that of another amazing human and an equally amazing kiddo and navigate it all so everyone is being served and everything is flowing, I’ve lost a little bit of my voice.

When I sit to write and reflect, the writing part hasn’t been happening as often. Simply because my brain needs the reflection and quiet time more now than it ever has before.

Talk about a whirlwind. The past couple of months have been just that. Insanely rewarding and my heart is so full but equally exhausting at the same time. And I miss my voice. I miss my platform and today, today the words started to flow for the first time in a long time and it felt GOOD.

It’s all slowly falling into place so I felt called to give ya’ll a little update and let you know I’m still here. Still building. Still creating. Still manifesting my reality. Still helping my clients. Still active in my groups.

I think maybe without really meaning to I’ve been silently preparing for what feels like a comeback… even though I haven’t fallen, not even a little bit.

Regardless, it’s about to go down… in the most magical and amazing way possible so stay tuned.

Grace

Grace

Grace. It’s a name I always said I would give my daughter, if I ever have one. But lately it’s become something I’ve been giving myself more regularly and in turn realizing that I have been greatly depriving myself of so much joy and space by not doing so sooner.

I’ve discovered that through giving yourself a little grace you allow yourself to truly feel what you need to feel when you need to feel it. Through grace I’ve discovered that pressuring yourself on a tight deadline every single day is the opposite of what creates the flow and alignment we all so desperately seek.

Through practicing grace I’ve discovered that if we choose to not only honor who we are and what we need but also give ourselves the compassion and space necessary to truly blossom into our greatest potential. Continue reading “Grace”

Remember Who You Are

Remember Who You Are

Remember who you are.

Without your age, the number on the scale, your report card, or your bank account.

Without the amount of friends you have, or expensive things you own.

Know who you are; your truest, most raw self.

When you start to doubt or worry, remember who you are at your core.

All of those other thoughts are in your head, fueled by your ego.

When you check in and get in touch with who you are at your core, you’re checking in with your heart center, with your gut, with your inner self.

And once you tune into that channel, make it a habit to do it frequently and stay in touch because that’s the purest part of your existence and the piece that will always lead you to your truest callings.

Soulmate Client

Dear Soulmate Client,

You’re not really sure why but you keep getting drawn to my content. Reading and wondering what the secret sauce is…what is it that I do those other people don’t? Is it really something that you are capable of creating? Or am I the exception to the rule?

Let me tell you, I am certainly not like most people, but neither are you. If you were, you wouldn’t be here reading this right now. You want more out of your life. You want to figure out how to actually enjoy the things you have already because you know that it starts there. Enjoying what you have is what will allow you to make more. That includes peace. You can’t create MORE peace in your world if you don’t first create some level of peace, to begin with. Continue reading “Soulmate Client”

Instead of Being Angry…

Instead of Being Angry…

“The opinion of 10,000 men is of no value if none of them know anything about the subject.” – Marcus Aurelius

A friend of mine posted this quote yesterday and when I was reminded of it I smiled from ear to ear.

I’ve seen this quote before but it couldn’t have reached me at a better time last night.

I was feeling heavy from some conversations that transpired throughout the day.

I had opened my Facebook and started typing several times with the desire to basically tell several people to Fuck off and get out of my space but then I was reminded that anger and hate is not something I chose to contribute to this planet of ours. Continue reading “Instead of Being Angry…”

How Finding Peace Made Her More Money

How Finding Peace Made Her More Money

“HOW MUCH MORE MONEY I COULD HAVE MADE IN MY ALREADY SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS IF I HAD KNOWN HOW MUCH MORE MONEY CREATING PEACE IN YOUR LIFE GENERATES?”

—-

I first hired Jamie almost a year ago. I talk often about the shifts she’s helped me make in my business, because those are the most tangible and easiest to explain.

I had this business idea when I first spoke with her that I had no idea how to execute… we hit my “long term, where I see this business at its peak” goal so long ago, that my original “long term” goal feels like a joke at this point. I’m hitting in a month close to what I used to hit in a year.

And believe it or not, business is the LEAST of what Jamie has helped me improve in my life. I don’t say that for drama – it’s the actual truth.

I had been watching Jamie’s content for over a year before I hired her. She had me intrigued with all this mindset stuff she talked about. I believed in all of it, but I believed it for other people. I didn’t believe I’d ever be capable of operating my life in that way, but it was cool to read her stories. Continue reading “How Finding Peace Made Her More Money”
