There is so much power in REST! . I don’t know if you’re like me, but rest & slowing down, it’s just not my natural state. I like to be moving, I love to be accomplishing and yet over and over I’ve been reminded that when I’m going to fast... I’m LESS effective, not more! . On the other hand, when I slow down, stay present, listen to my body, and follow my soul instead of my to-do list... I am better for everyone! . The last two weeks were the most beautiful breath of rejuvenating fresh Thailand air that I ever could have ever imagined! . I am so grateful for couples time, great friends, adventure, naps, friends and family that took incredible care of my kiddos, and a career that gives me these opportunities! . If I could plant any seed for you it would be this... You are worthy! Worthy of rest! Of love! Of passion! Of adventure! Worthy of success in every way! 💕 . That’s the first step to everything we want, we have to believe we are worthy of it! And that can be hardest - I get that! . If you need help sorting the chaos, and getting clear on how to get from where you are today to where you feel like you should be, let’s do this together! Let me help you! A one-hour call is probably all you need. Just email me or send me a DM. Your first 1-hour strategy call is only $249 to get you laser focused and strategically clear so that you can accelerate your success timeline. . You are worthy of so much! 💕
Loved this! I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’m allowing in, specifically with my own inner mean girl. . I’m currently reading @melissaambrosini Mastering Your Mean Girl for my amazing friend & client @kellifrance’s Personal Development Book Club (it’s virtual!). And well, it’s got me thinking! . What about you, is there someone you need to boot? Maybe your inner mean girl? . 💕 Graphic reposted from @iamwellandgood
I had a big ah-ha moment this last week in Thailand, basically it was this; . If I want more happiness experiences in my life, it’s my job to cultivate them! . This was exciting to me but the next question was HOW? . So often I fill my days with things that don’t bring me a lot of joy, don’t get me wrong - I know it can’t all be palm trees and sunshine and Thailand but it also shouldn’t be all to-do lists, chaos, and dirty laundry either, right? Or if it needs to be, I should be able to infuse a little more joy into the process. . This was my thought process because friend, life is short! Days become months become years and we are not meant to look back with longing for the joy and goodness we missed because we were to busy being busy for the sake of the busy-badge. . As I thought about what lights me up... things like family walks to get ice-cream, making a beautiful meal for my family and friends, fresh flowers, pedicures, hot peppermint tea, my morning quiet time when I pray, read my scriptures, and journal, family dance parties, learning something fascinating, lemonade, and even getting to write down another book I just finished - these spark joy and they help balance me so that I can be my best self for my kiddos, hubby, friends, clients and community. . So what’s it for you? Leave a comment because I’m so curious to know and be inspired by you! How could we take ordinary tasks and infuse more joy into them?? . A couple ideas I’ve had so far: . ➡️ Turn bed time into pampering with a lavender spritz on my pillow, silky jammies and a facial sheet mask. ➡️ Salsa dance (or attempt it at least) while I vacuum or mop. 💃 ➡️ Schedule 30 minutes a day for peppermint tea or fresh lemonade & inspiring videos, books, or articles ➡️ Have more spontaneous family dance parties to celebrate nothing in particular. ➡️ Listen to a great book, use really good smelling dish soap and slow down when I’m doing dishes. . What else??? How about for laundry? Working out? Eating healthy? Or getting the administrate tasks done for work? None of which naturally spark joy for me!
Elephant cuteness overload! This has to be one of the most amazing experiences of my life! No wait - it for sure is! . This little one is only 8 days old - and still a little wobbly! #cutestbabyever my stories have way more of this little guy! @pataraelephantfarm
The floating markets were amazing! Couples trip for the win!!!! (More in my stories!)
The Floating Market! Just blew up my stories with pictures from our first stop... #bangkok
Only one more sleep till we head to Thailand for a couples vaca... I feel like it’s Christmas Eve, I cant even wait!! . So... I’m not one of those who’s awesome and packs a week early. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been shopping - a new box arrives almost daily (as my hubby keeps pointing out 😬). But I only finally started putting things in the suitcase last night... and of course I’m now realizing I’m missing a few things (like shorts!) 🤦🏻♀️. . What about you?? Do you pack and plan or wait till the last minute? And what’s your favorite travel essential?! Help a sister out!
The person you are right now is a combination of everything you’ve overcome and all the places you’re still going to go! . Love the ‘her’ that’s staring back at you right now! She’s pretty dang incredible! . You can’t grow into who you want to be if you don’t trust in who you are now... she’s the one that’s gonna get you there!
There first business started in 2015 - they found old gumball machines, took them apart - painted them and then sold them online. . As their idea came to life, I’d ask them all sorts of questions to get them thinking like an entrepreneur. . They earned several hundred dollars, their confidence blossomed, and they got a taste of what it feels like to earn things yourself! . What I didn’t know... was that in that moment a seed was planted in me. I saw what the experience of having a business did for my girls and I wanted my younger son, my nieces and nephews, and as many kids as I could help to have that experience too! . This year that seed grew up and became @theceokid and I couldn’t be more excited about helping the next generation grow into their #successlife
One week till Thailand!!! 🇹🇭 The count down is on and I seriously can.not.wait!! I’ve done way to much online shopping and I still don’t know what I’m packing! #happyproblems . Have you been to Thailand? What should I know about the elephants other than how important it is to choose a place that is kind to them!! 🐘
