P E R S I S T E N C E • When was the last time you challenged your comfort zone? When was the last time you stepped up to the plate and swung deeply aiming for the bleachers, hell! Too small, pull a babe Ruth and point to where you want that ball to go - Aim for the street outside the park?! I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately as an entrepreneur with a new goal: 🎯🎯 [Empowering Woman across Canada to own their personal wealth, to grow it, to protect it, to understand where they are going with it and how they can make wealth a tool in the arsenal of knowledge to be used to contribute back to community, family or in a macro perspective the WORLD!] This picture was take by me a few years ago while trekking through the Zion Narrows in Utah. Something that I’ve taken away from that place; the level of persistence it’s taken to even exist. It’s staggering to contemplate. Thousands of years of water and rock and elemental stress to carve these deep cavernous pathways. Sounds a bit like business ;) Persistence is the backbone to my success. Risking our comfort zone to challenge the status quo and aim high must always be accompanied by persistence. Grit and heart, working smart. Today I am back at my desk, doing the preparatory work needed to build the foundation of structure and knowledge to truly maximize my offering. I don’t want to be just another person sharing financial information I want to be an integral partner in your long term growth. I want to know what’s truly important to you. What are YOU aiming at? That desire is my fuel. Since persistence is on my mind; I’ll leave you with this: “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful (wom)men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.- Calvin Coolidge What ever you are doing today, make it count!
6 years ago, I chased my first super moon. Never could I have imagined once this door opened how important this new learning would become or how consistent the phases of each moon, each month, each year would be in my healing journey. Our lives, especially those of us that are childbearing woman, we cycle like the moon phase after phase after phase. Holding on and letting go. Building and releasing. New, fullness, release, stillness. This is powerful stuff in my world. The past week or so has been rough for a lot of us, such intensity every day, so much pressure it felt like suffocation; this moon today is a biggie. Full lunar eclipse in Capricorn, we are in Cancer season which as a Virgo with an ascending Virgo but a Moon in Cancer I’m a contradiction of emotional control so when my flood gates finally open - yowza. That’s what has been building, something old has resurfaced and it’s time to face it. I’m ready to release all the peripheral self judgments and make the first step. For me this is some throat chakra healing time, as I continue to work towards my life & family goals I will also be consciously giving myself permission to speak my truth as it’s comes. I’m going to invite opportunities to self nurture, self sooth and sometimes just be loud — taking up lots and lots of space, unapologetically. Chasing that super moon, paddling 7 hours straight through a storm to get there, chasing whales with my oldest friend, sending out intentions before I even understood how powerful that would be. I believe these two moons are linked. That one we watched ride while 3 grey whales swam near by - and this one that will reach its peak in the middle of the afternoon on a sunny Tuesday in July. I feel it in my bones. Today is going to be magic. I’m ready for it.
Look around, are you being encouraged & empowered or are you exhausted by selfishness? I’ve been on both sides, the difference is directly related to failure or success. Mental energy spent on things not related to your goal, directly depletes your inertia and you (and me) have every bit of the power to put up a boundary - move away or change directions in order to leave the cage. In fact, more often than not once this is recognized, the next decision is to stop struggling and calmly stand up - realizing there is no roof on the cage, there never was.
Been a little quiet on the social media front, mostly because it’s retrograde time again and sometimes my phone gives me anxiety 🤦🏽♀️ Ha. Actually although those things are true, I’ve been deep in study mode (about half way finished!!) and when I do finally come up for air - it’s usually to wanderlust with this lovely human. (Dino photobomb 👌🏼+ quippy life quote ftw) I digress... Who knew completely switching gears career wise at 40 would take so much time and effort ?! 🤷🏼♀️ j/k I knew. But I love a challenge so why not me? And why not now! I wrote about this a while ago - I’ll leave it in my bio link if you are interested in a little motivational read 📌Greatest new thing as of late; I’ve been learning a LOT and learning to fail, fast and frequently which is a pretty new concept for me (thanks @li_michaud!!) as this failing fast has really tuned up my growth mindset. <Insert relearning to take risks!> I’m really, really enjoying the opportunity to completely stretch myself and succeed after concerted effort! I could go on, perhaps a blog post about this experience is in order - but for now I’ve got a quiz to finish • until next time I hope you are having a fabulous start to your week/summer if you are in the northern hemisphere and where ever you are; you are here fully - at least for a little while. Xx Happy Tuesday! #lovebeinghere
