I hardly ever pull cards for myself anymore. I reserve that for my clients. Today the pull to sit with them was really strong. It felt as though the Universe wanted to convey a message to me with my own medium. And when these tumbled forward I felt a deep sense of warmth in my heart and my eyes welled with tears.
One of my coaches shared with me that she felt this loss was going to be the beginning of a huge transformation for me personally and clearly, she was right.
I look at these cards and i see so much growth and healing and opportunity. I am so thankful for the ability to transform with grace. I am thankful for a community who holds me when I am struggling. I am thankful for work that fulfills me and heals me even as I offer healing to others.
I’ve always said that throwing myself Into service was the most healing experience I’ve ever had and I stand by that. Thank you to my clients, in fitness, in readings, in the university, and in massage for allowing me to show up and serve. You cannot know how cleansing this is for me. 🙏🏼✨
Total transparency here. The last few days have been a huge struggle for me. I do not handle change super well. .
A month ago I made a huge change in my life and I’m trying to find my new routine and find me again. For 2 years I poured everything that I could to grow a business and in the end I realized that was not my passion or my calling. So deciding to step away from that business. It was not easy in anyway. I am loyal to a fault and put everyone’s needs in front of my own and just lost myself. I made so many great new friends in the process and didn’t want to let anyone down. So it was hard to leave. .
Most days it’s been great and then sometimes things happen and I just need to take a day to deal and then move on. That was yesterday for me. I wanted to hide and not leave my house. But I had people counting on me and I had to just put on a smile and push forward. By the end of the day I was feeling much better. Here is the thing it’s ok to not be ok all the time. My advise is to take a day, reset and move forward. .
I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. They called me let me talk and gave me steps to move forward. And today I wake up with a renewed vision of how I want this year to go. I have a busy schedule today and knew that I needed to workout as I missed it yesterday. And I feel refreshed and ready to take on the day. Keep on moving forward even if it is just baby steps as long as you keep moving. Have a great Wednesday!!!
I have decided to be happy because it is good for my health....
Well that’s quite a sweeping statement isn’t it? Was sat having my hair cut (more like rescued! I have a constant battle with my overly thick disorderly mane) today with @garybushellhair. Having the usual banter, in fact he had me in the fit of giggles, and as usual with Gary, there’s always some interesting convo.
As I’ve got older, I’ve definitely come to terms with who I am, and dare I say it, happy with who I am. It’s not easy to strike out and do what makes your heart sing, in fact there’s a lot of fear attached with perhaps not following the society norm, following a different path. There can be a constant stream of negativity that follows your choices, people voicing their opinions on your lifestyle choices, and not only that but there’s no clearly defined route is there? When you’re younger, if you’re lucky like I was, then you have a support system around you guiding you, advising you, praising you. As you age, you become that support system for the younger ones. Hopefully you’ll still have by your side a good but probably smaller support system of close family and good friends but not all of us are that lucky either.
Happiness can’t be acquired. We can’t just change jobs or locations and hope for happiness.
‘Happiness is greater than or equal to your perception of the events in your life, minus your expectation of how life should behave’ ~ Mo Gawdat, .
Gawdat believes our default emotion is happiness, but as we get older, life happens and we create elaborate illusions about what happiness would look like, about what we should be doing. Society pressures, parental expectations, our own belief systems all crop up and rewrite our original programming. This, in his opinion, leads to confusion and unhappiness. With clearer thinking, and a move to living more in the moment, we can begin to end our suffering and a return to our natural state.
So...? Here’s to good friends and family that are with you, love you and support you. ❤️ I hope I offer that in return. Here’s to striking out, and following our dreams. Here’s to living a little more for the moment ❤️
My first throwback Thursday of 2019. Just look at how happy these two dudes are! ☺️♥️
This throwback was pretty recent, but these are the sort of throwback posts that truly interest me, inspire me and bring a smile to my face.
I appreciate kindness, i appreciate compassion and I definitely appreciate integrity. I also believe that food can fix people. Tasty food can bring such a huge amount of good energy and warmth to the soul.
I look forward to creating many more throwback pictures like this. Creating a smile for someone who truly needs it, is simply real magic in my opinion.

“Once upon a time you were a little girl with big dreams that you promised you’d make real one day. Don’t disappoint yourself.” ✨
I remember well when I stepped a foot into this industry (2012). So young and yet so curious about life, I have always seen the world with big wide eyes.
I was always surrounded by inspiring people with powerful mindsets who were much much older than me, talking about experiences in their businesses...and some day I was wondering where all the young people were from my generation that I could talk to?
I felt kinda "alone" being the youngest among the older ones. When I was little my mum always told me that I was a weard kid and I knew I was different than others from my age. I was much mature. I had other interests.
Long story short... I wished for other friends that I can exchange mindsets, who are positive and open minded to do business together. Yeeeeears later my environment have grown and I was surrounded by crazy people from different industries in different countries! And thank god he has blessed me with the most greatest team - a family I couldn't have ever imagine! 🙏🏽
And today (!) I am super happy that after years some from my generation and new generation have become more open minded to opportunities, to personal development and especially that most of them want to build their own businesses! When I was 17 this was never the case! (with 13 I knew I will be my own boss some day) 🤭
Anyway...keep your eyes wide open. You're never too old or too late to start a business. Connect with people who inspire you, people you can learn from. Don't be afraid to talk to them☝🏾
If you have dreams and goals follow them and don't let them get dusty! Just go for it! 🙌🏾
