Growing In The Great Outdoors

When we come into this world, we are born with two fears; fear of falling and fear of noise. Then somewhere along the line we become those crazy, worrying, non-risk taking versions of ourselves that we often refer to as adults. It doesn’t matter who you are, at some point, we all acquire and are forced to face fear. There may be no way around it but there’s always a way through it.

When I think back on my life I have encountered a lot of fears. My fears range from failure, success, snakes, being judged, and not fitting in. You name it, I’ve likely faced it. As I grow older I realize that there are a lot of things bother me more now than when I was younger. I used to be able to ride roller coasters for days and it never bothered me. Turn me upside down, flip me over, spin me in circles, it didn’t matter. It made me feel alive and filled with adrenaline. I could run, jump, play and leap without wondering if I would land on my face or pull something. Now I avoid most spinning rides to prevent unwanted vomiting and often find myself wondering how my body will hold up or perform in certain activities. It’s safe to say that over the years I have lost a bit of my edge.  Continue reading “Growing In The Great Outdoors”

What’s In a Flaw?

When I started on the physical body part of my Mind, Body and Spirit journey a few months ago (Please note this is certainly not the first time I have been on this part of the journey, and that’s another story for another day) I had a very profound conversation with my trainer, she asked me ‘what are your reasons for pursuing this’? I told her very clearly and firmly that I didn’t feel strong in my physical body, something was amiss between my mind and body connection and as strong as I felt in my mind and Spirit I certainly didn’t feel it in my body. She asked me do you have weight goals I added equally as firmly that it would be a bonus to have a hot rocking body, as we expanded the conversation I admitted that it was in fact one of my biggest fears, she said you have a fear of getting into a certain shape? In that moment it truly hit me the extent of how this had impacted my life, I was afraid of this part of success in my life because I feared rejection from other women. How would I be perceived by other women if I was all of that and a bag of chips? Continue reading “What’s In a Flaw?”

BE A Leader In Your Life on YOUR Terms

Being a leader in your life means you get to live life on YOUR terms. Never settle for anything less than you can be, create, share, or give. What makes you happy? It’s not what we get that makes us happy it’s who we become that fulfills us. And how do we get that? By really radiating and creating our own happiness on our terms!

How we live our life, who we are as a person is what matters most. I feel very passionate about that. We can take away all of the “things” in our life, but who you are and who you can become no one can take away. What causes a lot of resistance and suffering is that many people are trying to be someone they are not, or trying to make others accept them by seeing that they are valuable, that they are successful. I am not talking about changing who you are, because it isn’t so much about that. The change or transformation I am talking about is being yourself. That is when the change (transformation) happens because you don’t have to try to do that. You just BE it. Not do, but be. Get to know yourself, and then BE yourself. Because you really are perfect just as you are, and the biggest shift is understanding you already have the power and the answers within your own self!

Practicing The Art of Love: Acting vs Reacting

Are you acting (coming from love) or reacting (coming from fear)? Before we begin, place your hand over your heart and repeat with me: “I am open to giving and receiving love in my life”

The opposite of love is fear. Whenever assisting women or couples in their relationships, what I have always found is that within the problem or situation there is always some layer of fear that is present. So that has made me ponder, the whole concept of love and fear and all emotions, energy, and vibrations come from them. Like all emotions really do come from one of two families, that would be the family of love or the family of fear.

It’s Never Too Late To Do The Right Thing

It really is never too late to do the right thing, The less emotion you can bring forward while making good and sound decisions, the better the outcome will be. This isn’t always easy is it? Think of this as a way to shift your perspective, all of your problems started out as opportunities or good ideas at one time in your life, yet that could have also been a long time ago. It’s possible that your life, your desires, and your knowledge has evolved/expanded and now what was once a good idea or opportunity may not be so now.   Don’t be afraid to change your beliefs or your ways of thinking. You don’t owe anyone an apology, and you don’t have to ask anyone for permission to step into who God created you to be!

TIP: Try applying this question to any difficult decision you are having that could be causing you stress: “Knowing what I know now, would I still make the same decision?”  Continue reading “It’s Never Too Late To Do The Right Thing”

You Are Much Bigger Than Your Mistakes

Do you ever wonder where you would be without your “mistakes”? Well I would like to invite you to really expand your insight on how you look at your mistakes. Take a moment and look at yourself, do you see the incredible and amazing person you are already? I hope to inspire you to renew your mind (lean on God Romans 12:2) and your perspective about the experiences you have created. The “mistakes” are actually golden nuggets in our journey to love ourselves more, to see the miracle that is there for you to see within your own self.
