Today is the last day before I completely change my day -to - day schedule for the next 10 months. As if the universe had this planned all along I’ve been equipped with tools along the way leading here. After deciding to switch careers at the beginning of this year; I have been really, really reflective taking time to appreciate how each and every struggle of my whole damn life has prepared me for now. Each experience; all leading me to go after the biggest goal of my life which I said out loud to a room full of people that will be monitoring my achievements this past Friday. 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Oh yeah. Huge shift of energy - Thanks for the extra push Harvest Moon! During this past year the other thing I’ve been doing is focusing - letting go of the clutter in my life to ensure I’m putting all my mental resources towards only the most effective tasks. Family & Loved ones | Health | BHAG. I’m part of a mastermind group with @thelisamichaud called GOALden Girls. We are setting out to do a 100 days focus challenge. In order to get to my big goal: there are layers of smaller ones to achieve first. I decided to as part of my 100 days challenge my focus goal would be: “Personally Speak to 10000 people by December 31, 2019”. I am going to ask questions & listen to what concerns my community have; thus allowing myself to learn how best I can serve them as I launch my business later this fall. That’s a lot of people!!! It’s scary as heck. BUT! I am a teacher, a healer & very good at holding space for people. I know into each fibre of my being that a tool I have to help me stay present is my yoga mat. I know no matter how scared I get or how much emotion comes up during this process I can come to my mat & feel all the feels, letting the energy go. Emboldening myself with the good; releasing everything else. Who would have ever known how much good would come from that yes I said several years ago when invited to become a Yoga teacher. I love teaching but this is a different season. This season the teacher in me, is the crone that whispers to me from within - reminding me to find stillness in the chaos and strength in the dance. I’m looking forward to all of it to come. ✨🍂🌒📈
G U S H Y • P O S T • A H E A D • After a week away from my family, during a high duress time + successfully passing all my LLQP exams + training at head office for the next phase in my new career with Edward Jones Financial + meeting engaging and passionate peers + pushing every inch of me outside of my comfort zone — I am EXHAUSTED. ••• Having said that; in the same breath I am quietly taking a moment to appreciate how much I am bringing to all of this & how much I’ve learned to get HERE. I stumbled across this gem of a picture, my son and I - from 20 years ago. I was just a kid myself. ••• I think Steve Jobs said it best; “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.” ••• I always try to celebrate my wins. Tonight as I transition from the past week - that’s exactly what I want to do. ••• Are you working on a big goal right now? Take a moment today to pat yourself on the back for your persistence. Celebrate this weeks win! . . . . . . . #thoughtleader #goalsetting #stevejobs #lifejourney #growthmindset #growthroughit #financialliteracy #momma #work #balance #manifestation #workhardplayhard #stayhungrystayfoolish #tgif #momofboys #momofgirls #leadbyexample #lovebeinghere #entrepreneurlife #buildinganempire #businesswoman
Sunday’s are for many things; wanderlusty adventures or lazy mornings in with good coffee and a great book! I wanted to share; my hubby is an author. Lucky me (huge book nerd meets writer 💕 childhood fantasy right there 😉) A few days ago @r.e.hawse Released this exciting book cover reveal + a character account @setarcosotalp from his second full length novel and the first in a trilogy. Death Sex & the Girl Next Door 👏🏻👏🏻 I’m so excited that the rest of the world gets to read it this fall as it’s been torture having had the opportunity to read it months ago and then not be able to discuss it with ANYONE!!!! Lol I was supposed to be editing it; but a few chapters in I couldn’t stop reading and completely lost track of editing and before I knew it I was finished. Oops. 🤷🏼♀️ I think I was fired 😂 I am looking forward to the second book in the trilogy to say the least but will be consoled by at least being able to discuss this one in the mean time. Pre-orders are available on the 31st of October, the Release is Nov. 7th. For my book lovers; I’ll post more info as he releases it but head on over and check it out for yourself. I can’t wait to talk about this with you. 🙌🏼🙌🏼 Yes I know I didn’t give the synopsis haha head to @r.e.hawse for the details 👌🏼
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately. How my story began, where I’ve been, what I’ve learned. As I’ve shared a little bit here; I’m in the middle of a pretty massive career shift this last year and amongst that process I’ve been assessing my story. Artist, Teen mom, married + divorced before I was even 30, youth pastor, entrepreneur, world traveler, yoga teacher, builder of great things and more importantly - people. I’ve done the work to address and love the parts that were broken along the way; I always will to live my best life in such a way that when I look back - I can say I’ve fought the good fight and in the process contributed to the net goodness of the world. At least that is my goal. Today; I’m taking another rather large step and as such recognized another chapter is being written. I was asked yesterday morning; “What drives me? What gets me up every morning?” That goal. It’s simple, I seek daily opportunities to be & do better than I was/did yesterday and in the process of doing that I am determined to collect the knowledge, skill and confidence to offer bigger contributions back. ▪️I’ve been toying with the idea of writing some of the more transformative stories down; or at least I’ve been encouraged to do so which has given me an opportunity to consider it. It’s not out of the question but that level of vulnerability IS scary!! I’m afraid it would read like a #metoo tell all meets beating the odds meets Wizard of Oz. It’s been a good life, but like everyone else - it’s had it’s messy bits and I now I can confidently say I wouldn’t change anything. I love who I am today. However I f my story could help even one person speak up and heal or empower themselves to reach higher and aim straighter that would be a motivating reason to write it. Consideration for another chapter. In the mean time; I’m focused. I’ve got work to do - a new business to continue building, kids to love & empower and the most kick ass Fiańce to do life with - and tbh I am fully enjoying the process. Have you every considered your story, really dug into the life you have lived this far. Grab a tea and a journal and celebrate that journey - you are here for a reason
I don’t always take pictures of food but when I do it’s because #localgrowers + #organicfood Also don’t you love it when you have a patio nearly to yourself to have deep discussions with out yelling??? I’m an introvert & have a ridiculously quiet voice IRL so maybe it’s just me 💁🏼♀️ha. But... I do love beautiful food + great conversation + sunshine + my people. Bonus to have all that & a quiet social environment 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 also I agree; green beans in a caesar amiright?! Best part! 💁🏼♀️ Ps check out @upside.cider for your very own experience! (But no caesars 😘)
Just rolling through summer; head down working on building a new business but thankfully there have been a few moments of interlude like this evening last week. An outdoor screening of a movie in a naramata vineyard with two of my favourite people. Thanks for the picture KC ❤️ . . . . . . #heartisfull #familylife #momboss #laughingkeepsthestressaway #workhardstayhumble
