You know how you have that one friend who seems to have ALL the good things happen to her?? 🤗 And then there’s that other friend who’s always caught in drama and set backs? 😥 Where do you fall? And! Do you know how to start getting all the good things to come your way too? Here’s the secret... They already are! Possibilities and problems *both* present themselves every single day! Your first friend’s focus is on the possibilities, the latter focuses on the problems. It’s a beautiful choice you get to make! Try it for 72 hours and see what happens. Laser focus on looking for possibilities and opportunities. This last weekend I felt all the feels as I got to share how we get our mindset to do the possibility shift at #COOPleaderretreat 💕 Lovely lettering by the lovely @minna_so
I balled my eyes out to “better when I’m dancing” and was so grateful that the dark theatre hid my tears. There were two things running through my mind, the first was how fiercely proud I am of this girl. She is incredible and when I think of her strength and bravery and courage and only being 13, I am in awe. I want to be more like her! But then, I simultaneously thought of me at 13… It was a dark and hard time. I had no idea that there was a world this good, and loving, and supportive and a little part of me cried for that me so long ago who would’ve given anything to know that this kind of happy existed. And turn the sound UP so you can hear my amazing girl!! #mompride
Gratitude! That’s the best word I have to describe this feeling! I am so grateful to work with such incredible human beings! @stop.chelseatime is hosting this amazing mastermind retreat in Park City and I was thrilled and honored and like “heck yeah!!” When she asked if I’d come to speak to everyone! It’s been so filling to hear these women’s stories and help/hope that I’m showing them how possible and incredible and worthy they are. And then today, I ran down from Park City to @brighamyounguniversity to watch Ella perform and again I was overwhelmed all over about the possibilities and wonder and magic of strong women fighting for their dreams (you can see her perform in my stories and a shout out to her “goofy dad” 😂) All the good feelings right now!

Best find EVER!! I was heading back to my hotel with takeout ready to get some much needed prep done before my @kutv2news segment tomorrow and I really wanted a treat. I decided to drive a little past and see if I’d find something fun...And what did I find? A Cookie dough dessert house! Can this be real?!! @doughcodesserts - I’ve died and gone to cookie dough heaven! Only in Utah does magic like this exist! Someone else can say this is coincidence but I call it a tender mercy from up above! And I’m not even joking!
This was so cool! I’ve been wanting to take the kids here for a couple years and it did not disappoint! We loved it. It was the perfect family adventure to follow up the 4th and before Ella and I head to Utah!
What does your ideal day FEEL like? It was about 5 years ago that I first tried this exercise, and I surprised myself! I closed my eyes and imagined my ideal day... and how I felt inside that day. You know what wasn’t part of it? Feeling frantic! I have a strong tendency to lean into the hustle. I love to ‘go get ‘em’, and ‘get em’ done’ (possibly at the same time). But as I imagined my perfect day, while it was absolutely purpose driven, it wasn’t frantic, not even a little bit. There was calm, contentment, enthusiasm, and LUNCH! Yep, in my perfect day I stoped and had lunch while I read a magazine. the very idea of this little midday break was in complete opposition to my go, go, go mentality and yet... And yet as soon as I saw this in my perfect day, I was liberated! Liberated because this was something I didn’t have to wait for! I had everything necessary to start immediately! What about you? What does your perfect day feel like? And why are you waiting to experience it? What would you be willing to give for it? Is an hour of less sleep worth the quite calm you dream of? Is a little Sunday meal prep worth feeling epic when you get dinner on the table ? Are sore muscles worth getting healthy mentally and physically? Is setting an alarm to stop and eat + buying some bagged salads and pre-made lunches worth your dream 30 minute lunch break? Yes!! Yes to you and your best life!
I’m sitting over here just unpacking 1,000 boxes that I haven’t seen the contents of in 4 years (since we left for our year abroad). And seriously, what was I thinking?? Half the contents of the boxes are going straight to donation. Why did I take the time to pack this stuff to begin with? I must have thought future me was going to have a lot more free time, or be in desperate need of things to sell?! 😂 If only I was this adorable, wearing heels while I unpack, instead I’m in nikes - image from @chantel.alyssa
Oh hello friend! I know it’s not Friday but well, there’s a lot of new faces and so I’d love to share a few REAL things about me. I’m Leah (in case we haven’t met). I love to cook and eat...I accidentally-on-purpose finished off a cup (maybe 2 cups? 😬)of hollandaise sauce by myself with a spoon. And that’s NOT abnormal of me. Last night I got home from Girls Camp where I’ve been “chaperoning” for the week. Sometimes I feel like I adult really well, usually though I need my own chaperone. Like when we were all roasting marshmallows and the girls figured out I’d eaten 13. #oops🙊 And I’m moving... this weekend actually. I haven’t packed one thing. I’ve put it off as long as I could and I even decided to write this post instead of getting to work. Okay... I will now go play chubby bunny with myself, and then finally put the first item into a box....probably.
NOT happy Bob, n-o-t happy! We love quoting that in our family but seriously, what happens when you are in a funk?? This morning I was doing a training for my amazing influencer girls and I reminded them that we don’t have to wait for someone to rescue us from our funk...Who knows how long you could be stuck waiting! You’ve got this! You can be your own heroine! 🦸♀️ Make your own Funk-Blaster list on your phone that you can turn to next time you get knocked down. Here are six things from my list: 1️⃣ Watch an inspiring video (or 5) on #youtube 2️⃣ Sing & dance to a #powerhouse playlist. #beyoncesong anyone? Bonus points for having the playlist pre-made. 3️⃣ Get outside and feel the ☀️-shine! 4️⃣ Eat 🦀 + Butter and Savor every bite! 5️⃣ Go serve and love on someone else! 6️⃣ Make a gratitude list 🙏🏻 What will be on your list?? Leave a comment and we can all inspire each other. Image source unknown
