Rock Bottom to Rebirth

There she was...
 
Such a beautiful person. A hard worker. Always showing up for others with a smile on her face. Always going above and beyond putting her best foot forward for bosses, co-workers, and strangers.
 
Underneath the mask, and at home was a different story.
 
She'd come home, walk in the door, and go back to the real world. Her reality. The dream life she planned for herself was far from perfect.
But nobody knew.
 
At night she'd cry herself to sleep.
While she was out shopping alone she'd look at couples in love and say to herself, "I want that".
Jealousy and envy sometimes consumed her.
She couldn't stand to see happy families together.
Every day she'd try hard to love, support and be kind, but she too was broken.
She too was hurt.
 
She too was tired of no support and doing it all by herself.
She too had dreams and hopes squashed.
She too was angry, and felt ripped off.
She too wanted more.
 
Deep within she...

Bleeding Love

grief Feb 02, 2021
One of my most favourite pictures of my mom during her cancer journey.
 
Despite being pricked, poked, tested to the max with far too many trips to the hospital to count, she called her self a Covid Miracle, and was still bleeding LOVE/
 
Before she died she told me that if ever I needed to have a good heart to heart with her, she’d be sitting on my left shoulder.
 
So every morning, I rise. I give thanks for life. I put my hand on my heart, and say...
Hi Mom. I love you. Without fail, I can hear her whispers in my ear knowing that while I can’t see her, she’s always with me.
 
Your loved ones are always with you too.  May you experience the miracle of stillness, when you get quiet and know they are always with you.
 
Believe it.

Be Still and Know

Uncategorized Jan 27, 2021

Be still and know that what lies ahead for you is far greater than were you are right now or where you’ve been.

 

Wake up and realize what an honour it is to be here on this day and the sacrifices those around you have made.

 

When you are stuck - you only see lack.  You only see what others didn’t do, and what you don’t have.  You only see what’s not working and what’s going wrong.  You only look to others and point out everything that’s wrong instead of looking in the mirror to see your own reflection to how you’ve been thinking, behaving, acting and showing up.  Your thoughts, behaviours, actions, and work ethic are all yours to control.  No one else is responsible. 

 

Often times it will take the gifts we took for granted to be taken away from us before we can come to the place in our life that all we are left with is all we will ever need.

 

After you’ve spent years working on...

Change Your Life by Letting Go!

Right now someone is out there in the world building a case against you.
 
Why you don’t deserve it, why they don’t like you, what’s wrong with you, and they are failing to see their own actions as the common denominator of their own life sucking.
 
So who’s side are you on?
Well, I sure hope to God you’re on your own side, for those who truly get it only show up to give love, spread love and be love, because that’s all they’ve got left inside to give.
 
Are you on the darkside of life building a case against others, are you in the winning side and building a case as to WHY you freaking deserve a happy, healthy and abundant life?
 
Today’s Challenge: Cut the crap.
 
It’s a new day today and you have an opportunity to make it anything you want it to be right here. Right now in this present moment.
 
What if you accepted that where you are right now is exactly where God wanted you to be,...

Heaven is Roaring - Rest in Peace Mom

My mom would sometimes say “I’ll catch you on the flip side”, except this time when I said my final goodbye, she simply said the words....
 
“I Am Ready”.
 
She closed her eyes, and at 11:04am on Thursday, December 17th she passed away and went to be with Jesus.
 
As someone who spends her days writing and speaking, there are days where I am at a loss for words. There are no words to write or to speak, but that is actually where the magic happens.
 
If you are still, present and listen quietly between breaths, you will know and hear your truth and the voice of God.
 
There comes a time in everyone’s life where a spiritual surrender must happen. Where we tap out. Where we surrender to God’s plan for our life, and not our own.
 
This year, a virus took the world by storm and we experienced a new normal. It was during this time in history, where my Mother received her lung cancer diagnosis, and started...

How to be Happy 101

mindset self love Nov 28, 2020
Without VISION you my beautiful friend will be stuck, sliding backwards with no hope in hell until you start to see a better future for yourself, know it can be yours and live into what you’ve been called to.
💫What happens when you’ve only ever received your validation from external situations and others?
💫What happens when your self-worth, your value, your definition of success is given to you by others?
It’s easy to be happy when things are going right, but what happens when they aren’t?
You’re happy when you’re making more money, the phone is ringing and you’re feeling extra important and special.
You’re happy when the bills are paid, there is money left over, and you’re getting the results in life you want.
But what happens to you when all that goes away and you’re left alone in the dark?
You lose the job. The finances crumble. Your friends leave you. You get sick. No one is calling you anymore.
You suddenly hit...

Blessings in the Broken

Uncategorized Nov 27, 2020
I will never forget the first Christmas alone.
 
Shared custody.
The arguments over texts.
Waking up with a little baby and no one to talk to.
The homemade handprint ornaments.
The sugar cookies I made for Santa.
The feeling of being alone even in a room full of people.
.... I hated every bit of it, and sadly hated the world around me too.
 
Not the most magical time of year for a lot of people, but there’s blessing in the broken 💔
I discovered who and what I was really made of, and what I am about, but the hate.... the broken bits consumed me for years because my own life was in shambles.
Jealousy, envy, greed weighing you down?
 
It’s hard to be authentically happy for others if you’re not happy on the inside and life is slamming you.
 
I guarantee whomever you’re wasting your time comparing yourself to is just like you... or was ONCE like you.
 
💫All cut from the same cloth friend, yet all so very uniquely...

Winners Find a Way to Win. Losers Don't.

mindset self love Nov 10, 2020
Now you’re getting “older”, and you will never get to see what you could have been because the cost of getting to see it is a commitment that you’ve NEVER been willing to pay.
 
You’re trying to get someone to fall in love with a you, you’ve never actually discovered for yourself.
 
So beauty, who are you betting your life on?
 
Yourself or the needs of others?
 
✨Who will you trust with it comes to providing for your family? Your own work ethic or the work ethic of others who might show up only when they “feel” like it.
 
✨Who will you blame when the person you need to help you has something more important to do and you placed your livelihood in the hands of another human just showing up for a paycheque?
 
✨Who will you turn to when the company you’ve lost yourself for closes, the money runs out and all hell breaks loose and you’ve got food to put on the table?
 
✨Who will you...

What does it really take?

Uncategorized Nov 10, 2020

Rise and Shine!

 

I am 100% sure, that sounds a hell of a lot better than “hit Snooze, complain, rush around and work harder for the same pay year after year, and place your future in the hands of others who just show up when they “feel like it”, or when the grid moves.

 

So, what does it really take?

 

Well a new mindset and a vision would be magical, and then you’re going to stand firm in your conviction to wake up and go get it.

 

There’s nothing more powerful than a made up mind.

 

Start speaking some truth to your life with some better statements, for in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God. All things were created through him, and apart from him, not one thing was created. (John 1)

 

So, there you have it.  If you’re at war with yourself, and not listening to that little whisper from within calling you higher in life, and you’re choosing to hit snooze, stay, settle, not ask for...

It's a FEELING!

Uncategorized Nov 05, 2020
I asked my son this morning after he asked me to make breakfast.... “What do you FEEL like eating today”?
 
“I don’t know” he said, and as I walked up the stairs, I said, “Well… when you figure it out, let me know.”
 
💫What if you woke up today and you didn’t FEEL like going to work?
 
💫What if today you felt like a bagel or a bowl of lucky charms instead of that healthy omelette you were told would be a better choice?
 
💫What if you woke up and felt like wearing jogging pants instead of dress pants?
 
💫What if you felt like doing yoga and or doing nothing instead of pushing yourself harder or following what was on the calendar?
 
💫What if after supper you felt like a cookie?
 
💫What if you felt you were overworked and underpaid?
 
💫What if you felt like wearing jeans on a Tuesday and didn’t want to wait until Friday.
 
💫What if you didn’t feel like putting...
