I remember so clearly when I decided to start raising the bar in terms of who I got involved with romantically. 😳 It felt really hard. Really scary. Really uncomfortable.
Because at that point in time, my standards were undefined and negligible. If he was cute, had a pulse, and halfway paid attention to me, that was enough.
Who cares if he's basically unavailable and impossible to get a hold of? Who cares if he refuses to define what we're doing here together? Who cares if I'm constantly anxious and insecure, feeling as though I need to impress him all the time, pretending to be the cool un-difficult chick, just to keep him around?
Here's what I know now: Honoring your standards, even if it means letting someone go from your life, is NEVER as hard as tolerating a relationship that makes you feel crazy and causes you to abandon yourself. (👈🏻 That might be worth re-reading.)
And the only reason we think honoring our standards is hard (especially in the beginning), is because we are not well practiced in it just yet. Not to mention, we probably value the safety of approval and connection over the relationship we have with ourselves. WHICH BLOWS MONKEY CHUNKS, but is quite common! 🙊
But the discomfort in facing that fear, honoring your feelings, and advocating for your own needs is a very worthy form of discomfort. GET USED TO IT. It'll start to feel really good.
Because the more you practice, the more comfortable it becomes. Until it’s so easy, it’s just your new normal. Until you don't even let yourself lie down on the floor, not even for a second, because HELLO HI YOU ARE NOT AN OVER-TOLERATING SAD DOORMAT. You're just not. At least not on my watch.🙌🏻😜
Love you. Now get off the floor.
Even if you think they are way out of reach, chase your dreams.
Even if you think that it’s impossible, chase your dreams.
Even if you think you are not capable to do it, chase your dreams.
No matter what, chase your dreams. #dreams#upw#yourwordmatters#happy#happiness#life

Found myself celebrating the love for my body, mind, and spirit in the best way possible.
Sitting on this beach I’m thinking back from to my first trip this Hawaii back in 2011 and reading old blog posts I’ve written about the shame I felt over my body, my mid section, my stretch marks, and then some. I can’t believe how far I’ve come. In 2011 I bought a rash guard to hide my body that I was so ashamed of, I lied to my husband and daughters and told them I was wearing it because of my tattoos. The truth was I wore it to hide my body and today here I am worshipping the sun.
Never in my life would I ever think I would feel so liberated in my own skin to spend the morning bathing naked in the sun. Even at my leanest I still didn’t feel like my body was good enough. There’s something so freeing about feeling the sun kiss my body, the waves crashing against the shoreline, and the salt air blowing into my hair. Being here feels like home, but more importantly I know that my body is my home. #womaninprogress#awayjogoes#visithawaii#mauibabe
3 years ago when I met @theprettycitylife Ema shared this quote from her Mum and it’s stuck with me ever since ❤️
Everything always works out good in the end because it’s meant to and remember if it doesn’t feel that way right now, you could be in the messy step 2 of your journey where magic can be found also 🙌🏼
November has been a strange month and as I catch up with my coaching and author clients this month, they seem to have all had a weird month also so I can’t be alone! November has been hmmm...challenging but also abundance has appeared out of no where also for me, so there is always good that can happen even in the days we feel our worst ✨
So keep this mantra with you because it has got me through the last few years and I’m sure will continue to inspire me throughout life. The Universe has a funny way of bringing people together and the fact Ema and I even became friends in the first place from across the world over a pencil case on Instagram is pure magic. Always believe in miracles Queen because they happen every day right in front of us 👑
By nature, we as humans tend to avoid discomfort and seek pleasure. Our brains are literally hardwired to do so.
So if you find yourself wanting to indulge in sweets, avoid working out, and sit on the couch binging Netflix shows, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t make you lazy, it makes you human. It’s NORMAL for our brains to want a hit of dopamine - whether it’s from food, alcohol, drugs, social media, or otherwise. It’s NORMAL for us to want to avoid things that feel uncomfortable - whether it’s exercise, public speaking, changing jobs, or otherwise. But just because it’s NORMAL, doesn’t mean it serves us and our goals. We always have the power to choose something different.
If you’re unhappy with where you’re at - in your health, your career, your finances, etc. - what is it that’s stopping you from reaching for more? I think so often it’s FEAR that gets in our way. It’s our brain telling us that there is danger in uncertainty and discomfort. What if it’s hard? What if we fail? Goodness, what if we succeed?! Even when we aren’t happy where we’re at, there’s comfort in what’s familiar. Sure, we might not be where we want to be, but we know what it feels like to be here and we’ve learned how to manage that.
Consider this: if you’re uncomfortable with the status quo, why not choose the discomfort of growth instead? If there are bigger dreams resting on your heart, if you want more for yourself, your future, and your family, then I implore you to reach for more. Show up scared and do it anyway. Choose the discomfort of growth over the discomfort of stagnation.
This last year has been the most challenging, uncomfortable, and liberating year of my life. I said goodbye to the status quo, faced my fear of failure head on, and chose the discomfort of creating the happier, healthier life I knew I truly wanted. I’ve lost over 110 pounds. It hasn’t been easy in the slightest, but I promise you, it’s been worth it. Every uncomfortable second of it.
I love this yoga app, you can do it at your own home ! My love to yoga and tennis is real lol 🎾🧘♀️🥰❤️

I’m reading this so I can better understand the science behind miscarriage, so I can better serve others . .
But it is also a great read if your blaming yourself for your loss .. to know there is so much more to it and that it’s 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐚𝐮𝐥𝐭 .
It also gives you options for treatment, you may not otherwise be aware of, if you want to discuss it further with your GP .
You are not broken, your body isn’t broken .. you are an amazing women and your so strong !!
She is a sweet heart. A true joy to chat with... I truly understand her pain personally on so many levels. My heart hurt for her and her son!!! It's different level to sexual abuse! May our Lord cover her & her son's heart. This effects the entire family!
There is so much evidence pointing against him! Justice need to be served. These pedophiles should be dismissed. Take out the 🗑 end of discussion!
When I look at these stones (rose quartz) I am in awe.
Like these really came out of the GROUND looking like this! Ughhhhh... God thought of EVERYTHING! Rose quartz is my absolute FAVORITE.
I didn’t do any work today because I had a small surgery in my mouth yesterday so I spent a lot of my time today CREATING.
I made this rose quartz bracelet and I am in LOVE with it. Do you guys use any crystals or stones during your meditation? If so, what kind?! Y’all know I’m nosy!!

The central issue looks as if you had to walk away from a person, job, or situation. Someone may have had to scrap their original plans. There is a feeling of just giving up. You could have also been trying to work on your trust or abandonment issues as well. I feel that you were once inspired and you made plans with someone that maybe fell through. Or maybe it was just feeling inspired about work but now you feel that your heart isn't in it and you are considering letting go of whatever it is that you were working on. So if this is a 9 to 5 job I feel that you are now wanting to pursue your passions and be self-employed. or maybe you gave up your passions to work the 9 to 5 but you can still have both. It's up to you to prioritize and get a schedule together. This also could be a love situation where either you have decided to let go or someone has decided to let go of you especially if you are dealing with a fire sign - #aries#leo#sagittarius . The past is the past. I feel that there is something that you have been praying about and may have been going through emotional transformations but something is getting ready to manifest. Both the empress and the emperor are out so I feel that you are in the presence of your Divine counterpart. If you were going through a break-up I feel that you're getting ready to meet new love or deciding that you've got nothing to lose by moving forward with your deepest desires. The empress indicates that your desires will come into fruition. Something is getting ready to manifest. there is someone who is watching you and admiring you but they need the courage to approach you. I see seduction going on as well or some sort of flirtation between two people. Someone may be getting ready to enter your life if you are single and this person may inspire you to be your own boss. I see the birth of a new partnership whether it be business or romantic. If you are single and looking this may turn out to be both. There's also the possibility of an age difference and the possibility of you connecting with an air sign or an earth sign, depending on your situation. I get the energy of someone who's very courageous to the public but shy ⬇️
When you try and try and try... “efforting” so much, eventually the only thing left to do is surrender. 🧘♀️
And when I say surrender, for me it’s when I truly let go and allow what ever is for the highest good to come through. I know with all of my self that I am being guided, that every single moment of my life is happening for me and that I am co-creating my reality each day. ✨
There are endless lessons to learn, evolution to take place, ☮️ and 💗 to be found within.
Today is one of those days that it’s time to completely surrender. To go within myself and allow the guidance to take the lead to wherever I need to be lead, to see whatever I need to see and to fully allow the new to come in.🙌
Have you been having those days lately? Where things just seem to be coming up constantly? Almost to the the point where you feel explosive in some way? Like the pressure keeps building?? .
If you have, me too. I totally get it! And I would love to help guide you through if you feel like you need it. These are the kinds of things that I help my clients navigate... the DEEP 💩 kindof stuff. And it’s what I’m good at. It’s what I am called to do, and where I like to lead people to.🧘♀️
Because once you get to the core, once you see what’s there and release it, that’s when your life changes. That’s when the real magic happens... ✨
So are you ready to take your journey and release your 💩?? .
If so, let’s chat! Link in Bio ☝️
Within you is the power, the ability, the fire, and the capability to become whoever you want to be! Others will try, keyword try, to define you but at the end of the day the one with the most power, potential, and opportunity is YOU! So forget about what they say, lift your head up high, mold yourself into someone your proud of and live life! 🔥
So I had “the talk” with my kids. I told them some animals eat their young so they better get their shit together before dinner.

All the successful people in life, in history, have known the magic behind creating wealth, happiness and success in life.... they either consciously live this way or they do it subconsciously.
You can learn to consciously LIVE this way! I remember the day, I made a decision to make a mindset shift so that every. single. thing I did was aligned with my business goals.
I remember paying bills with a heart of gratitude... not scarcity. Money was tighter than it had ever been... I easily could have paid the bills with fearful energy.
When I understood the Law of Attraction... I knew that if I wanted to have abundance...I had to have it in ALL areas of my life. It's about thinking thoughts of abundance.
About NEVER giving energy to negativity. Your mindset must be in a state of abundance for true abundance to show up. -------------------------------------------------------------------
Remember... every second of every day we are co-CREATING our reality! This is the magic behind money! The Law of Attraction doesn't know what broke is or what rich is.
It knows the energy around broke and rich. It doesn't know what financial wealth is. It knows the positive energy of abundance.
It doesn't recognize if your bank account is big or small... it knows your heart for giving. The simplest way to think if it... you are a mirror. What are you reflecting the Universe is what it will mirror back to you.
Crazy cool... isn't it! You are powerful beyond words.. friend! We are all manifesting at all times.... if your mind, heart, and words are in the right place, you WILL attract abundance in all areas of your life. You must BELIEVE it, to see it. Not the other way around. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 #boymomlife#beyourownboss#mominbusiness#mompreneur#mompreneurcode#momswhowork#momprenuer#ladypreneur#buildyourtribe#mombosses#momsinbusiness#fempreneur#bossmom#thebrandedlife#momboss#mompreneurlife#womeninspiringwomen#determinedlife#lifestylecoach#lifecoach#empowerwomen#womenempowerment#workhard#momtrepreneur#travelbaseballlife#womaninbusiness#momceo#workfromanywhere#dreambig#happy
BIG NEWS!! My first video is finally coming out tomorrow (November 21st)!! 🙌
Words can’t describe how excited I am. As many of you know, I went part time at my secure office job a few months ago to make a bigger impact in the world. This is a whole new ballgame for me.
It’s scary... This project is so close to my heart that I feel like I’m putting everything on the line. I’ve had sleepless nights, excited nights, days where it’s hard to get out of bed, and days where I can’t wait to get out of bed! It’s been a roller coaster and taking everything I have to create this project. Although it’s not over, this is by far the most fulfilling project for me yet!
So what is this all about? This is about empowering you to step into their true power! To overcome anything, to achieve your goals. It’s about all of us rising together! I’m sharing my psychology knowledge on the essentials of how to create well-being and optimally show up in life. The foundations that allow us all to be resilient, unstoppable, powerful!
I can’t wait to embark on this new journey with you all!
See you tomorrow 🙏❤️
Why do some choose the more natural way of living and some not?
Why do some people think your crazy for using completely natural solutions!? For me I am lucky I have been bought up with parents that preferred the natural approach so I remember seeing a homeopath or naturopath when I needed support and truly can’t remember barely ever going to the doctors unless I had broken something!
The times I have chosen a not so natural option it has done nothing for me but set me back and I have had to do a lot to bring myself back to a whole state. It has now been 6 years since I had to go down this road!!! I get there is a time and a place for it but why wouldn’t you look after yourself daily with natural solutions that make you feel alive and happy? Are we not all searching for more happiness and health?
You have got nothing to loose but EVERYTHING to win!!! There is absolutely no harm in trying this is what I love and I am always keen to keep adding more and more natural solutions to my daily routine 🙏
It will change your life when you make that decision to live a more natural toxic free life there is so many ways to do this. I love to help people transform their life!
I started with just yoga every single day, now I use oils of course, take whole food supplements, meditate daily, daily gratitude and am always developing myself and learning new ways to be the best version of me!

10 TRUTHS TO BELIEVE IN THAT WILL SUPPORT A SUCCESS MINDSET 🧠🏅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. If you're called to do it, it's right for you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. If that nagging feeling won't go away, there's a reason.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. If you're excited about your 10-year vision, it's entirely possible.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Their opinion of you says as much/more about them as it does of you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. An external opinion is a valuable data-point on a graph, not the complete truth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
6. If you know it's true, but can't explain how you know, it can still be true.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
7. What's real for you gets to be real for you, even if it's not real for others.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
8. You know what's best for you. Period.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
9. Everything is always a choice. If turning to outside sources for authority makes you feel like you don't have a choice, try turning inwards.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
10. You are innately and inherently capable. Don't let anyone or anything convince you otherwise.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An enjoyable dinner with an old buddy at Crazy Water followed by a silly 80s classic, The Money Pit, at an old fashioned neighborhood movie theater. I love being a tour guide and local historian for my out-of-town friends! Dinner was appetizers of bacon-wrapped dates, baked oysters Rockefeller, and Beef Wellington...all excellent!
If you have a bad reaction to a food, you don’t question the morality of cutting that food.
You just do.
Similarly if someone, for what ever reason, is toxic for your mental state, limit contact.
Guard your mental state at all costs. (Unlike food, cutting/limiting people requires tact. Do it as slowly/subtly as possible, leaving yourself open to change. Perhaps in the future, you will want this person in your life, perhaps not, regardless leaving the bridge not burnt is ideal!) Tag someone who needs to hear this!
