Spending this weekend appreciating the beauty and safety of my surroundings. ⠀ What an emotional week it has been for this country; a mix of triumphant highs, followed by such devastating lows. ⠀ But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from living here over the past two years, it’s that Americans are resilient. ⠀ Let’s practice a deeper sense of gratitude today, and all of the days that follow for the things we CAN control, and for the things we CAN (and will) change.
Has it really been a month since I was in San Diego kicking off #THISWILDIDEA and welcoming all of the brilliant women who walked through the doors?! ⠀ Reminiscing, but also dreaming and scheming for some in-person experiences I’ll be curating in 2019! ⠀ Did you attend a workshop/event this year that you loved? Tell me in the comments! ⠀ pc: @dalisonphoto
One year ago today I packed up my bags for the second time and journeyed to this beautiful big island in the middle of the sea. Oh how time flies! ⠀ Hawai’i has humbled me in more ways than one. I’ve become more conscious (with my thoughts and choices), more connected (to myself and my surroundings), and more intentional (about celebrating the little things in life). ⠀ It’s been a wild ride but I’m ready for more adventures with @joshsamad (come visit us!), deeper friendships and as many ocean sunsets as I can catch. ✨
#wildlyintentional | In an effort to protect my own creativity and mental health, I’ll be observing a quarterly pause from social media and going on “insta break” from October 22 - 29. ⠀ Never apologize for the boundaries you build that allow you to stay in alignment. Over the past year I’ve said more confident no’s to simplify and more gracious yes’ to expand. Doing so has helped me honour my values and prioritize what matters most. ⠀ I’m choosing to practice and be proactive (vs. passive) about working in seasons! Our bodies are designed to go through cycles of activity, play, and rest. That’s why the workday ends and the weekend exists! So, after a busy last few months, a season of healing is on the horizon! ⠀ …plus, my iPhone crapped out on me today so timing couldn’t be better. See you in a week, insta fam! 💋
“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” — Rumi ⠀ When we prioritize the people, projects and perspectives that matter most to us, we live in alignment. ⠀ I’ve been having a hard time putting into words what bringing #THISWILDIDEA to life meant to me. The weekend workshop was everything I imagined and more. ⠀ If there’s one thing I love, it’s gathering likeminded people and fostering connection. Great content aside, it is the ripple effect of relationships built at this event that I am most proud of. ⠀ When we are thoughtful with our choices, our voices, and our ideas, we can make waves in the world. To me, that is the purpose of business. ⠀ To all attendees, speakers, sponsors and friends — THANK YOU for supporting and rallying behind *my* wild idea. 💋 ⠀ pc: @dalisonphoto
