True Story

img_2395

All the beauty and love that awaits you
Resides inside of you
No one else can discover it
Or uncover it
But you
And you wouldn’t want them to

It is yours
And yours alone

And it’s the greatest treasure you’ll ever find
Here’s a hint, it’s not in your mind
Go within
Listen

Start
with your heart
It knows all your best parts

Connect to the Universal mind
And prepare to experience the Sublime
Because you are magnificently Divine
And you were meant to shine

Bon Voyage,

This is my Worldview

Gone fishing in Alaska =)
Life is good…only if you let it.

The only news I care about today:

My heart is beating
My ears are hearing
My eyes are seeing
My limbs are moving
My lungs are breathing
My blood is circulating
My mouth is speaking
My tongue is tasting
My nose is smelling
My mind is thinking
My being is feeling
My body is thriving
My soul is high flying
My essence is loving

And I am rejoicing in all that is right in the world.

This is my worldview.

Bon Voyage!

A Heartfelt Declaration

Let your heart bloom.
Let your heart bloom.

I have always trusted my heart to guide me and guide my decisions. It becomes very evident to me when it’s time to move on and take the next step. If my heart is not fulfilled, I cannot pretend and whatever it is, must end. This is how I honour myself and make space for some other kind of wonderful to come in.

Everything has a time and a place. I know this. I trust this. I love this. For I am forever expanding and becoming more fully who I am on this beautiful voyage called life.

So here it is, I am officially closing my juicing company. It was a beautiful run but I’m done. I’m making space for the next wonderful adventure that awaits me and welcome it in whole-heartedly.

Lesson here: Honour yourself by trusting yourself. And know that the Universe always has your back.

It is What it Is

Peace be with you.

I sat down to write a post yesterday and…oh, how do I say this? It sucked. I thought the post was headed somewhere but nope, clearly it was not.

So of course I immediately jumped to the conclusion that whatever was pouring out of me suddenly went pouf and was gone forever more. Oh yes, 12 posts and it’s over. I slay.

But you know what, when it’s not there, it’s just not there. There’s absolutely no point in forcing it. It’s not always going to flow, things aren’t always going to go your way and that’s okay. A little bitch slap never hurt anyone. (Bahaha! I can’t believe I just wrote that!)

In this moment all the angst I experienced yesterday was so worth it! Smile is officially back.

Lesson here: Make peace with whatever “it” is and let that shit go. Pronto!

Feeling Good is Everything

Sometimes a simple cup of coffee is enough and other times, it's really not! LOL
Sometimes a simple cup of coffee goes a long way and other times you need so much more….like a cinnamon bun too.  LOL

I started writing this post before I left to go to the grocery store and when I returned, I took my own advice.  So here it is and then I’ll tell you what I did.

What will I do to feel good today?
If we asked ourselves this one simple question at the start of each day, I believe our lives would change in the most wonderful ways.

Not, what will someone else do for me but what will I do for myself in order to feel good today?  Simple yet powerful because feeling good leads to being happy.  And who doesn’t want that?!

Feeling good + Being happy + Every day = A Good Happy Life

Of course you’re not going to feel good 100% of the time but by making feeling good a priority, you’ll notice far more quickly when you are not and you’ll consciously find ways to get yourself back to feeling the way you want to feel.  It’s pretty much our superpower okay!  LOL

Storytime!
I was sort of meh after the grocery store and didn’t want to feel that way.  So what I decided to do for myself was sit down with a nice cup of coffee (because they’re always nice) and a cinnamon bun and simply enjoy the moment.  It put me in a completely different state of mind and made me appreciate that I know how to take care of myself.  It’s important to note that this was a “guiltless” cinnamon bun.  Yes, there’s such a thing!  All I had to do was decide there was.  LOL

So, I ask you now….
What will you do to feel good today?

Lesson here:  The better you feel from moment to moment, the better your life becomes.

Bon Voyage,

Relationship Goals

Having fun.
Having fun.

I had THE best time dancing to Beyoncé in my kitchen last night. Soo much fun! Good friends were over, the moon was almost full and yes alcohol was involved.

The best part was seeing my husband’s joy when he was watching me dance. He had the cutest littlest smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye, like a kid. He was getting such a kick out of seeing me have so much fun and being totally free. And when I realized I was the source of his joy, it amplified my joy. We were both getting such a kick out of each other.

Pure freakin’ joy and such a great moment in time.

Lesson here:  Everything is amplified when shared.  The love, the joy, the fun, the connection…everything!

Bon Voyage!

“Stay in Your Head, You’re Dead” – Tony Robbins

Just do it!
Just do it!

A few posts ago, I wrote about our Tree Top Adventure at Isaberg Mountain Resort.  I realized this morning that this adventure occurred at THE BEST possible time for me.

I was so in my head about this blog.  The gremlin conversation was in full swing and I was panicking.  I was feeling insecure and I was questioning my abilities.

Regardless of how I was feeling, we were scheduled to do the Tree Top Adventure at two o’clock, so off we went.  Once the adventure began, the self-defeating conversation stopped.  My mind and body became alert and I was catapulted into the moment.  My self-induced suffering had ended.

I noticed that it didn’t matter whether I thought I could or couldn’t do the obstacle, I did it anyway.  I prevailed.  That’s what I meant about breaking down mental barriers in my earlier post.

The whole experience was unnerving, scary, yet fun and exciting.  I was a whole new person by the end of it.  I was exhilarated and proud.

Lesson here:  Stretch yourself.  Shake things up and watch yourself grow and light up.

Bon Voyage!

Why Not Start a New Life?

This cat. This expression. This caption. You nailed it Spiral Out.
This cat. This expression. This caption. Thank you Spiral Out. You nailed it!

It was this innocent cat photo with this caption that started it all. Look at that face!  It got me thinking…why don’t more people pack up, move, go on an adventure and get the hell out.  If they aren’t happy, why wouldn’t they? What’s stopping them? Because let’s be real, when you want something bad enough you find a way.

That’s when it came to me.  It’s peoples identity.  It’s their identity and the story they tell themselves about who they are that stops them. This is who I am, my name is fill in the blank, this is where I live, this what I do, this is what I do not do, this is my family, these are my friends, this is how I show up in my world and this is what I do on weekends.  If you’re happy, it’s all good, great in fact.  Please feel free to ignore me. But if you’re not happy, if you’re bored and you feel stuck maybe it’s time to do something about it. Tell a new story and re-define yourself.

What lights you up here and now?  Where do you want to go next? What do you want to do now?  Who do you want to be and be around?  And most importantly, how do you want to feel?  Just because we see the same face in the mirror day after day doesn’t mean we are the same person day after day.  You are a living, breathing ever-changing being.  We are meant to evolve, that is what all of life is, evolution.

Don’t let who you’ve always been and what you’ve always done define who you are right now.  Give yourself permission to explore more.

Lesson here:  There’s no satisfaction in being who you once were. True satisfaction comes from being all that you are right here, right now.

Bon Voyage!
