Not quite spring yet 🙂
• this is hands down my favorite fragrance. i know i’ve said that about a lot of them, but this one is it! such a beautifully bright floral, with citrus and greens. it’s like a spring day you can take with you wherever you go 🌸 i’ll have Fern & Lily candles up and available in within the next few days 🌿
What a difference changing my habits and beliefs has made!! 😮💓 It's not just the difference in the way I look, it's the difference in how I feel! I have so much energy now!! I rarely get sick and I'm living life to the fullest!! On the right is me now that I have changed my outlook on life and my mindset.
Now I; 🤗😁❤️
- Eat nourishing foods that nurture my health and I love my body
- I focus daily on feeding my mind positively
- I focus on my daily goals and rituals
- I am responsible for everything which happens to me
- I make myself number one
- Am my own best friend
On the left is me when I had poor mindset. Back then I; 😢
- Drank like fish
- Partied hard
- suffered from panic attacks and anxiety
- I ate proceed food and loads of sugar
- I drank loads of black coffee
- I had low self-esteem and no confidence in myself
- I was lost and no clarity
- I was broke even though I was making money
- I hated living my life every day.
I had little to no energy and I would struggle to get through each day, I got sick all the time and I hated my life!! I started with a vision of who I wanted to be then started taking actions towards that vision. I focused on mastering one goal at a time over a longer period of time and I have been able to sustain the changes by changing my mindset.💡🤔 The best thing about this is I now have unshakable confidence, clarity and the self belief that I can have anything I want. I never settle for anything. I have attracted my ideal partner. I now look at myself in the mirror and love what I see unlike before where I loathed everything about me.
That's right no more anxiety, no more panic attacks, no more self loathing and only unshakable confidence. I made long-term sustainable changes in my life!!😁 If you want to have more confidence, a love you love, an extraordinary relationship, a life with success and heart centred love 🔒. Then PM me for chat. ☄️⚡❤️ 👉 If you are ready to commit to making sustainable changes for the long term then book in for a Discovery Call with me using the booking link.
I look forward to hearing from you,

Can I share with you my dream.⠀
I'm sitting here at my kitchen table with other like minded women who come together to hold each other accountable and help each other to achieve their highest potential. ⠀
You wake up everyday and know how to honor your core commitments. ⠀
You are excited by what you is seeing in the mirror plus YOU have a community that you can talk when you are frustrated or upset. ⠀
You know what it feels like to have true support and feel accepted (nothing held back) ⠀
Man I wouldn't trade that for all the Americanos at Starbucks. ⠀
This is my dream... The Freedom Collective .... coming April 2018 ⠀

Even a cloudy day in Marin can’t dim the beauty of a wonderful view. How would you like to look at this every day! #loveMarin, #lovemyjob❤️, #liveauthentically, #realestateagent
I’ve been a little more distant from social media these past couple days. I’ve been getting workouts in and staying on track with eating.
I think my brain and body needed a break from social media, which is hard because I have so many amazing connections with so many boss babes and our team.
But I also know that self-care is so important too. I was getting anxious at the thought of opening my social media apps so I’ve been taking it slow and only going on when I want to. It’s just a down swing, I know I’ll be back to posting more frequently soon, but for now, it may be a little less.
I LOVE following your journeys, sharing the joys, and being there for the tough times, and I’m always here for you, always. 💕
Happy hump day loves, live simply✨

That time I felt like @kimkardashian. Embracing every imperfection, curve and celebrating my own skin! It’s taken so much time and energy, and so frequently fluctuating with my weight but I’ve develop a true #selflove ! It also helps I always have the opportunity to celebrate my body with @vivaciousvixenapparel. I have continued to go back to these photos and smile thinking ‘damn, I’m really feelin’ myself!’ Instead of ‘wish I could change —-‘! #effyourbeautystandards 😘😍✌️👊💋❤️🙏💃
I may not make the difference in women's lives that my heart truly craves, but I make a difference in her life. She cries out in her sleep because she misses my skin touching hers, mine is the last nose she kisses before I head off to work for the day. I'm the one whose arms she falls asleep in the moment she is done playing, and the very reason I cry happy tears throughout my day.
My sweet Leia baby, thank you for teaching me how to be a good mama, and for showing me that the littlest moments are my very favorite. The greatest blessing I could have ever received is asking God for a true family - you are our very best addition, my love.
Ground your heart, and know your blessings, my sweet friends - tell me your gratitude moments below in the comments! This is how I have changed my mindset and changed my life, like for real. Head to the link in my bio to grab your very own Gratitude Guide Freebie! Give back to your own heart ❤️
Let the rain fall down, I'm coming clean. I’m coming clean. 🌧👟
I am absolutely loving my life as a mom to our sweet Sunnie!
There was part of me that felt nervous about having a newborn... what if I hated the newborn stage What if I experienced anxiety After 4.5 years of wanting a baby, there felt a certain kind of pressure to “enjoy” this stage. After all, it was what I wanted for sooo long.
I did a lot of mental work before Sunnie was born to give myself permission to feel whatever I needed when she was born. Permission to not see feelings as “good” or “bad”.
So far, however, I am truly cherishing these days and my moments with her. I know that could easily change in the future, but for now I’m soaking in all the newborn bliss I can. She is my ray of sunshine, my beam of hope!
The ultimate comfort zone - your home.
Something I’ve been living without for a year. And that unknown has been okay with me. Home feels like everywhere for me. Home feels like where I lay my head. Home feels like where my love is.
I live my life outside of my comfort zone. Home or no home. Life is unknown. I can live in the unknown fearlessly
But the promise we made when we designed this life is that we would always follow our heart. And right now after a fire, two car crashes, a job loss, and a great loss. I am craving grounding. I am craving space. I am craving comfort.
And guess what. That’s okay. It’s okay to change your path. It’s okay to change your dream. It’s okay to create a space of comfort. You can’t rewrite your chapters, but you can start a new one.
Know your limits. Know your boundaries. Know when you have gotten too comfy. And above all, always follow your heart. When you create resistance toward your truth, you’re living in the most uncomfortable space of them all.
I’ll never stop traveling. But I will give myself the grounding I need in my present. Chapter 4 = Our Home Base... and I promise you, it’ll still be an adventure ❤️

Spending my afternoon revamping my resume and drafting cover letters 📑. What's the most professional way to say that I'm always 20 minutes early and promise that I won't eat anything smelly in the break room #survivingour20s
Have you ever noticed how a little sun makes you feel so happy and calm or is it just me .
I'm so grateful for the love and support from my post last week -- I've heard from many of you who are going through the same struggle.... if you didn't read the update, I'll put the link to the original post under this post.... .
If I'm honest, I've probably struggled with anxiety most of my life. I've just powered through it... 😂
When I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, it F L A R E D big time. I couldn't sleep at night -- so I started taking melatonin so that I could shut down my brain at night.
For the most part, I'm completely functioning but this past month it was B A D.... i tried to push through but it was like my brain was locked down! .
Here's the good news, I am feeling SO much better and thanks to some Wellbutrin, exercise and good food choices... and truly, thanks to all of you who have reached out, commented or showed some love on that post -- I know that I'm not alone... .
I have been doing a little research on how to lower our level of anxiety and increase our wellness factor in the process and did you know that 30 minutes of natural sunlight triggers the brain's release of serotonin That boost of magical serotonin increases our feeling calmness. In fact, anxiety related disorders and panic attacks have been linked with reduced sunlight. .
hmmmm, me thinks that the winter months may have added to whatever hormonal stuff my body has been going through..... .
So guess what I did today Soaked up 30 minutes of good 'ole vitamin D. (Yes, mom....I wore sunscreen... <3)

For #worldpoetryday a poem that had such an impact on me when I was young and still speaks to me this day. And when I am out hiking in quiet forests such as this one this poem often comes to mind. #yearofcalm
The Road Not Taken
BY ROBERT FROST
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
OoooOooOVER IT 👋🏼❄️
Recently I was looking at old videos and pictures of myself from before our move and I couldn’t believe how much Hawaii has changed me and how evident it shows from the inside out. 🌿 Hawaii has made me softer towards myself and others, more lively, & I have never felt more joy. I’m less rigid in my thinking and for the first time in a long time, I feel like myself again. Most people find themselves in college but honestly, college was a huge soul sucker for me. It was full of grinding, hustling, busyness, & I lost my love of art and creativity. Hawaii has brought me back home, reminded me of who I truly am, and has allowed me to rest, to dream, to believe in limitless possibilities again. ✨ I am forever thankful that God led us here, to a new season, a revival of love, and soul, and sunny, sandy days. 🌺 Maybe you are in a similar season I was in, of uphill battles, emotional captivity, & lack of purpose. I want to encourage you that it will end. It’s not forever. It’s just refining you. And when the time comes, you too will find home again and the peace you feel will be so much more abundant because you learned how to walk through the fire. ❤️

"Poor girl." his grandmother said after her grandson had said "There is a girl in his that has a small leg."
Vanessa was at the kitchen table, watching her favourite Italian TV show Casa Vianello on internet. With her earphones in, her mother-in-law couldn't have suspected that Vanessa could hear everything the little boy was telling his grandmother.
She held onto the words her mother-in-law had just said "poor girl." As if being born with a little girl makes you poor. I asked my nephew what he had just said and he repeated. "We are all born different." I said turning to look at my mother in law doing a suduko quiz. "We are all different like you are black." My nephew said
"Yes, just like me. I'm black and proud." I said smiling at him. [BLACK BIRDS a working title]

It might take some time, but little by little we learn to see ourselves through the eyes of love and find the perfection of life by embracing our humanity. We must accept that everything that we’ve experienced in our lives has supported us to expand into our truth. The moment when we are finally able to completely appreciate ourselves and within our lives... to accept that no matter what challenges we’ve faced, the road we’ve decided to take and appreciate everything that has ever happened in our lives because every event has brought us to exploring the aliveness of life itself. #acceptance #appreciation #freeyourself #selflove #reflection #liveyourtruth #liveauthentically #heal #heal-yourself
On holidays, sitting by a vast body of water starring at this lonely branch sticking out, I am reminded of an old Siksiká legend of Creation.
The Siksikáwa believe that the Sun is the Creator of our Mother Earth. Napi, meaning “Old Man” is the name they gave to the Sun. This is creation story:
In the beginning there was only water and no land. Old Man and all the animals, floated around on a raft. Old Man wished to make land. So he told Beaver to dive down to the bottom and to try to bring up some mud. Beaver dove down as far as he could, but never reached the bottom. Then Loon tried, and after him Otter, but the water was too deep for all of them. Then Muskrat was sent down, and he was gone for so long, they thought he must have drowned. But at last, he came up barely alive, and when they pulled him up on the raft, looking at his paws, they found mud in between his toes.
Old Man had dried this mud, scattered it over the water and land was formed.
