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...

Wake Up Tired?

Waking up tired no matter how much sleep you get?
 
Well you could be weighed down by more than you think, and that heaviness and lack of spark could be because you’re not living your own life, but rather comparing yourself to others.
 
So how does one get over jealousy, envy, comparison and get started on their own path to unlocking their own purpose in life and ultimately finding true personal freedom?
 
Emotional intelligence is so important so the first step is witnessing it, and I bet your happiness meter is lower than you think it is if you find yourself tired.
 
Life should feel better, and you should be fulfilled, so let’s give you some tips today so you can start to manage your emotions, but let me start off with the FACTS first.
 
There is only 1 you on this planet.
 
You are different. Your story is unique, and you came here for a purpose, but if your’e not allowing your struggle to grow you, you’ll be...

How to Prosper in Difficult Times

Uncategorized Oct 28, 2020
Leaders are readers, and so I challenged myself to read a book a week this past year. 52 books in 2020 and I’m nearly there.
 
Health is wealth, but you will NEVER be able to attract wealth into your life and KEEP it if you don’t get to the root cause of your own inadequacy or lack.
 
This morning I sat in meditation and it all came up and I burst out into laughter as I thought of all the things related to money and me losing it.
 
You eventually look back and can see so clearly when you’ve come out of the dark side.
 

*At age 24 my home was broken into on the night of our stag and doe, and all of my possessions along with cash we worked so hard to save was gone.

 
*My marriage ended, and I walked away from a home with nothing but 2 orange garbage bags, moved back in with my parents and went on government assistance.
 
*All child support payments stopped, and there was no life insurance policy.
 
*I was taken to...

How Winning is Done

Uncategorized Oct 26, 2020
Rocky Balboa once said...
 
The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.
So here is ONE indicator you’re doing life wrong; and not open to connection or heck even in the game of winning at life, perhaps because you’re letting life knock you down.
 
Ego will try everything in it’s power to keep you safe and isolated and stuck in fear, so check yourself.
 
If you find yourself doing this, question whether or not this ONE thing is helping you get better or stunting your growth.
 
Say for example you see someone who has something you want. They have achieved something, know something or are doing something you’d love to do.
 
✅ Winners will know what they want, see others, be inspired by them, and ask them questions to accelerate...

Why it's NOT "working"..

Uncategorized Oct 23, 2020
I’ve got a little secret to share.
 
If you put EXTRA onto ordinary, you become extraordinary, and trust me, you were never created to be “ordinary”... “basic”.... “boring AF”... and “average”.
 
Have you tried everything and it’s just “not working”?
 
Well, there could be ONE missing component to the equation the you’re missing.
 
Authenticity
 
You can’t fake it and the reason it’s “not working” is you’re trying to please others at the expense of your own authentic soul.
 
💫You’d rather blend in then stand out.
💫You’d rather stay quiet then speak up.
💫You’d rather wear back and blend in.
💫You’d rather conform then pull up your big girl pants, do the work and go your own way.
 
Sooner or later that caged up animal that you’re keeping locked up is going to have this hunger for life and freedom.

How To Handle Haters

mindset motivation Oct 22, 2020

Years ago I had a hater named Janice... who assumed all I did all day long was pawn my kids off and go shopping while I worked from home.

Years ago I also had a good friend name Kate who blocked and unfriended me when my business was successful and hers wasn’t.

 

Years ago I had a good friend laugh at me when I told her I was going to retire my husband.

 

But here’s the thing about haters.

 

You’re only shining light onto their darkness and most often it’s rooted in their own insecurity. It’s not even about you.  

 

So....

 

What the heck do you do all day?

 

An EMPTY day… As a business owner… or a BIG DREAMER

 

What do you do all day, and how do you do it all with kids?

 

Or how DID you do it?

 

Well first off, you gotta be deeply connected with a HEART and a mission for that will keep going going when the haters come

 

Second, if you want a better life, you don’t quit, and you...

The Eve of my 39th Birthday

Uncategorized Oct 15, 2020

Unfiltered and Real.

Tomorrow I turn 39, and I felt called to send you something tonight as I sit here and reflect over the course of my 39 years of life. 


I can tell you that I have never felt more alive, more healthier, more happier, more grateful, more creative, more free, more authentic, and more aligned with who I was created to be then right now.. on THIS day.  

But it wasn't always like this though.....  

In fact, I'm pretty sure I lost my way from my source of connection very early in life.

Growing up morbidly obese, feeling not good enough, divorce, heartache single parenting, miscarriages, starting over, death of loved ones, car accidents, home invasion, lawyers, being fired from a job, trauma, PTSD, I often would joke with my best friends...

It's no wonder I'm not locked in a looney bin yet.... It showed.

In my 39 years of life, I've been through a lot, and I can say that I've experienced MORE darkness than light... but these days I...
