I will not apologize for wanting to thrive, not merely survive. The world is not going to get better that way. The things we put on our 5-year plan are about thriving and helping others do the same. Some of our 1-5 year goals make me go 🤭😳 because they include things that a mere 5 years ago I didn’t think were in the cards for me. Or they are things that still feel outside of my comfort zone.⠀ 💭With 100% grateful heart, honor almost a decade of growing and nourishing my babies and go after my own body transformation.⠀ 💭People on our team earning six figures residual. 💭Write a book. ⠀ 💭Speak on bigger stages.⠀ 💭More rental properties. ⠀ 💭More automation. ⠀ 💭More travel. ⠀ 💭More adventure. ⠀ 💭More impact.⠀ 💭Greater contribution. ⠀ ⠀ I have a Pinterest board with my 2019 vision board- feel free to check it out and also create your own! If you do, I’d love to see it. Next step is to make a printed version to have both a hard and soft copy reminder of our 2019 vision. ⠀ ⠀ Ps If you are in a state of mere survival, I see you. I have been you. Some days I still feel that way. But with more and more clarity they become less and less frequent. I believe it’s never black and white... I think the point is progress. For you, I send a hug and a prayer. For clarity, for strength, for growth mindset that reminds you that nothing has to be a certain way forever. 2019, I’ll see you in a few weeks. Let’s do this thing. 🎈🍾

Don’t let yourself be defined by a “label” 😎 Whether it is a label from Mental Health of Bipolar, PTSD, CPTSD, Anxiety Disorder, Past Addiction, Escape from Abuse - whatever you have come through, you are MORE than what a diagnosis says you are!!! ❤️❤️❤️ I struggled for a long time to overcome my “label.” Thankfully, I had some very wonderful people in my LiFe who opened my eyes to the fact that I am not my diagnosis....I simply HAVE that diagnosis. What I AM, is a daughter, a sister, a mother, a friend. I am loyal, caring generous, loving, artistic, a hard-worker with awesome ethics!! I began to build a List of all the things I Am. Sure - some days I am a hot mess; and some days, I feel like I am on top of the world and I have it all together. And that’s okay. There are LOTS of things that make up WHO YOU ARE. . . I am more than what you see....what do YOU see when YOU look in the mirror?? Do you see the badass that you are? Do you see the Courageous person that you have become? Do you see your talents and skills that you have developed from your past experiences? I hope you do!!! YOU are more than what OTHERS see 😊❤️👍😎☺️🥰😎 . . What has YOUR Journey of self-discovery been like for you?? . . . #musthavesunglasses#mentalhealthawareness#changeyourperspective#loveheals#change#changeyourlifenow#rosecoloredglasses#zen#morethanenough#youareenough#changingglasses😎
When you see someone you know staying positive in the face of challenges, you can be sure there was a lot of pity-party self-talk happening before they showed up in their rose-colored glasses. Also, probably some tears, a voice raised in anger and frustration, probably even some throwing up of hands and flipping of fingers in the general direction of the universe. All this to say, Militant Optimism is a CHOICE, and it takes work to make that choice. It takes determination. It’s not an easy “tra-la-la! It’s all fine!” thing, it’s more like a “fuck all y’all, I’m still looking on the bright side, dammit!” thing. In other words, you can do it too. When you’re in the crying and cursing part, just don’t get comfortable there - keep moving forward. On purpose. . . 📷: This image was shared with me - If you know the source please let me know!
85 Percent of What We Worry About Never Happens!! Five hundred years ago, Michel de Montaigne said: "My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened." If the other 15% happens... we actually have to suffer twice. TWICE! Worrying simply doesn’t help us! In fact, it usually prevents us from having any optimism or hope that we will get through the situation. It handcuffs us to the problem and the pain. We look for more to go wrong and when we lock on to that, we usually find it. Try to stay in the moment and reflect on all the ways you have overcome obstacles before. Believe that God will be with you, helping you and providing you strength for the journey. As Eckhart Tolle says, “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have.” There are almost always so much to be thankful for in every day. Look for it and write them down. Keeping a gratitude journal helps pull us away from the stress of the day. It also forces us to appreciate life as it comes and find the good in every day. If we stay focused on solutions and hope in the situation, we will begin seeing blessings in the mess... but you have to look for them. So let go of worry just as soon as you feel those thoughts trying to take root. There is no point in suffering twice and 85% of the time you won’t suffer at all! #lifenowconsulting#lifecoach#lifecoaching#blog#blogger#blog#worry#letgo#positivity#positivethinking#love#livelifenow#rosecoloredglasses#happy#spreadlove#livelifenow#joy#beyou#coachcricket#dontworry#dontsuffertwice
I didn’t lose much of consequence in last night’s “cleansing flame” (positive spin for the win!) but in the morning light it’s clear that every single thing near my work table is covered with the chemical dust from the extinguishers. The fabric and clothes on the other side of my little cave reek of smoke. I won’t be working out here for a while. Those of you who work with small bits and bobs in your art know how painful this is. I don’t put stuff “away” so much as just stash it on a shelf or in a recepticle to pull out when I need it... and many of my things have been collected for years. It’s true, I COULD throw it all out and get more, eventually. The idea of cleaning every tiny thing is pretty overwhelming. But even with my positive spins and all, I am at a loss to know what lesson I am supposed to learning here. The sack of shit I’ve been dragging this year was BEYOND full. Now I can’t even spend time before the holidays making pretty things. Maybe it’s time to wipe the slate clean, as it were. What am I willing to hold onto? What do I really need in my life? Small things often bring up big questions. Thank you all for your kind words. Really this is a tiny, tiny thing. I think of the people - some I follow here - who have lost EVERYTHING in California... keeping it in perspective. Also, we were home and awake, which limited the damage. ALSO, the dust and smoke makes it easier to see the cobwebs I need to clean. Maybe that’s the best metaphor of all!? Through it all, I’m #grateful, and I’m still a #militantoptimist. Just let me clean the smoke off these rose-colored glasses...
Look deep inside you. It’s there, the YOU the world needs is there. You won’t find it looking outside yourself, and you won’t find it while looking for validation. Trust me I am a recovering validation seeker so I get you. ⠀ ⠀ I have had so many conversations the last couple weeks with women wanting so badly to be ENOUGH and I literally look them in the eyes and say YOUR ENOUGH is already in you. Listen to it, your heart, your soul’s dreams... they are placed there for a reason. And sometimes they get confused, they get hidden. The noise drowns them out or makes you shove them down. Let that YOU be seen and heard. We are all the same. But we all bring something to the world that only we can bring. AND we are all the same. 💗
