It's gotten cold! Fall is most definitely here 🍁 One of my favorite parts of this season is the excuse it gives for drinking lots of chai.
I love my Polish mug. @suegrauerholz gave me two and I still have them both and love them! I use them every day 💕
What do you look forward to most about this time of year? 🔥
I'll never forget putting on my prescription glasses for the first time. It was spring. As per usual it was accompanied by dirty streams of melted snow, the trams joyfully ringing their bells on Lenin Ave., and the air filled with excited anticipation that is so hard to describe, but that is scented by anyone who happened to be outside in this strange time of the year. So did I – brand new glasses on my nose – proudly left the optician's and got awestruck. For the first time in my life I was looking at the world with 100% vision (the conclusion that my optician made after numerous scrutinizing tests in which I had to take turns covering my left or my right eye). Everything, architectural details on 'Stalinkas', shivering pigeons, lint on babushkas' coats overwhelmed me and I burst out.. laughing. Out and Loud. All alone. Weirdo. Visionary. It felt good.
It's important to learn to look at things like we see them for the first time: notice their shape, color, texture, dynamics, their relationships with the background, name them and define their purpose. This simple exercise helps us to perceive our experiences deeply.
Я никогда не забуду, как надела очки в первый раз. Весна сопровождалась грязными потоками талого снега, на Проспекте Ленина весело звенели трамваи, и воздух наполнился запахом волнительного ожидания, которое так сложно описать, но которое наверняка ощущал каждый, выходя на улицу в эту странную пору. Вот и я – новые очки на носу – гордо покинула оптику и остолбенела. Впервые я смотрела на мир со стопроцентным зрением, по крайней мере, так заключила мой офтольмолог после долгого испытания, в процессе которого я прикладывала картонку поочередно к правому и левому глазу). Архитектурные детали сталинок, дрожащие голуби, катышки на бабушкином пальто привели меня в полное смятение, и я громко захохотала. Одна. Ненормальная. Хорошо как.

Many of us are aware of the importance of probiotics to support our digestive function and immune health. This is especially important when all the “good bacteria” gets wiped out from illness or antibiotics. doTERRA’s PB Assist+ is part of my daily supplements. PB Assist+ is a pre-biotic fiber and 6 strain probiotic in a unique double layer vegetable capsule that supports all the friendly bacteria in the GI tract to maintain peak function. Did you know that many of the probiotic supplements we take cannot pass through the stomach acid unharmed? The double layer design of PB Assist+ is time released and protects the probiotic cultures as they travel through the stomach so they can be fully used. This season, as you gear up to battle all the germs coming your way, make sure to get your gut health in order first! doTERRA also makes PB Assist JR. for your little ones in a fun “pixie stick” form!

Join me tomorrow night as we talk about setting boundaries for yourself! People will take/get/pull from you, whatever it is you allow. So you MUST set the standard! Let's chat about it in the lounge! See you there and bring a friend!
hope is being convinced that you are surrounded and pursued by the goodness of God.
that He works all things for good in the end so if it’s not good, it’s not Him and it’s not the end.
and there is no story of tragedy or grief where He won’t have the last word.

🌓 We’re entering the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle today on this Waxing Half Moon, in the sign of ♑️ Capricorn ▾▾▾⠀
The opening quarter is a time of brining in the tension of a new energy to get us from our New Moon wishes to the revealing of their Full Moon guidance.⠀
Libra Season is all about relating, and calls us to evolve how we balance our relationship with self and other.⠀
This Half Moon brings the reminder that in order for our wishes in love to actually change what we’re attracted to, we must act as if things have already changed. We must be disciplined in letting go the old and commit to try on the new until it feels right. It won’t at first, but in time it will feel better than ever before 🦋⠀
Commit to your desires and more importantly, commit to the ways and practices that are making space for them as they grow to have more staying power. You are rewiring your instincts to align with your chosen intentions. It’s hard work getting the white rabbit to shift course 🐇 Do that work!⠀
How’s your Venus retrograde going? Getting to the depths with those relationships? 😬🙏😌 My intention during this cosmic occurrence is to explore the relationship I have with myself. Mainly the desire to face the self criticism, the feelings low self worth that sabotage my relationships, my work, and my enjoyment of life.
Well… I feel the fear today. I feel the self doubt creeping in that I am not worthy of love and affection. And when I step back I SEE 👁 that the fear is not related to anything going on outside. It is not related to my partner or the amount of money I have or do not have. It’s not related to any certain situation or set of circumstances. It is 100% related to this belief that I am not worthy or lovable just as I am. Right now. That’s the origin of the fear.
I keep having experiences where I think I need to be somewhere other than where I am now. I feel myself reaching and striving. I feel myself hoping that things aren’t going to fall apart. I feel myself visioning a future that doesn’t include the manifestation of my desires but instead shows me where I block myself from allowing my desires to manifest. 🤦♀️ I keep getting tripped up by my own thoughts. And the gift is it gets clearer and clearer that NOTHING is actually happening other than me being in my own head, believing a bunch of lies and acting on them.
See… I lie to myself. That’s what I am observing. That ego brain just spews lies all day long. And I believe that shit. And I hurt the relationship I have with my beautiful soul by believing it. Well I fucking see you ya trickster. Lol.
This is the power of observation and the attentiveness required for us to undo fear based patterns. This is the magic of cultivating practices that align us. So we can spot the lies before they ever take hold and lead us on a wild goose chase all day searching for what??? I think the descent into fear is so important. Letting ourselves sit in the lies and really feel where they originate from without pushing them away. -
How is fear manifesting in your relationship with self? How do you hold yourself in your shadow so that you see the trickery but don’t fall prey to it?

Frolicking in the mountains this past weekend was such a breath of fresh air (literally 😍🌲)
I’m grateful for little getaways like this, especially with my best friends! Such good self-care💜
I think a lot about self-care and what type of activities and practices work best for me. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in what you think you SHOULD be doing as self-care because others are doing it. But maybe deep down you hate face masks (not me, but still😂) and would much prefer to watch your favourite show on Netflix👍🏼 That’s OK! Whatever your form of self-care is, embrace it and know that you are unique in what recharges YOUR batteries, only you know what’s best ✨

I don’t always feel “motivated.” Hell, I even skipped my workout yesterday (the first workout of my actual Week 1 - last week was Prep Week) because I was tired and desperately needed to catch up on sleep after the week I had.
I’m human! (Most of the time... sometimes I’m more Mombie 🧟♀️) But, today, instead of beating myself up... I got back on track. I chugged my Magical Pre-Workout and MADE 25 minutes to dedicate to myself and my workout. (It did require me to put Harrison in his jumper in front of his favorite show but a Mom’s gotta do what a Mom’s gotta do! 🤷🏼♀️) The point is... we all have time to improve ourselves and work on our goals. It’s there. I promise. 25-30 minutes is just a small bit of your day. But we have to CHOOSE to make it a priority.
I’m so glad I have the tools the help keep me focused on my goals. I am thankful for my teammates who text me to hold me accountable. I am thankful for the short, effective workouts I have to help me make the most of the little windows of time that I have as a new mom. And I am SUPER thankful for this golden goodness of a pre-workout that gives me a burst of energy when I find myself lacking! 💕⚡️
A day on the couch today for me after sickness has hit our household.
I think I’m suffering more from exhaustion than anything, my body telling me to slow down.
Not being able to do much today got me a little creative here!
I have plans to start painting again but no equipment here yet and much too tired for anything big.....so drawing it is!
I’m not the best at drawing but anyone can improve on something they’d like to become better at.
I want to become better at drawing and I’ve set art and creativity as one of my goals,so I’m starting with doodles for my journal.
I think I did ok for my first time 😀
I have 25 sharpies and the rest of the day ahead of me, might even start a mandala 💙
//ON REJECTION // Rejection letters in my inbox. Over 100 cover letters and resumes in my application folder. That's what the past 5 months looks like digitally. To you, my digital life might have looked like a lot of daytime yoga classes and healthy eats via Instagram story. And yeah, that's what I did a lot of days. Was it kind of awesome?...yeah...it kind of was. ---
But what you didn't see was the anxiety and hopelessness I felt by constant rejection letters; the exhaustion spent always saying 'yes' to networking events, meetings, and interviews; the pressure I put on myself; the challenge of creating purpose for myself; the uncertainty of not knowing what would happen with clients; the self doubt of my skills; lack of trust in knowing what I want and am good at...
So yes, there were moments over the past 5 months that were really great but also really hard. Sometimes just getting out of bed was hard, made harder by the fact that that's just not me. But did I learn a lot? Heck yes. I learned that I didn't have to take a job that I don't feel passionate about; that I can live on less and still be happy; sacrifice is part of life and it makes you stronger; feeling emotions is really important; and I feel so grateful for being able to experience it in this way. And after all this I can't wait to share an exciting update with you next week! <3 In the meantime sign up for my newsletter (link in bio) to get my next newsletter about rejection. #inpursuitofpassion

It is always a challenge to keep up with chores around the house. Optimal time is usually during nap time. I think I got a good start to our bedroom and bath today. I only get about 45 minutes on a good nap day. As you can probably imagine, the rest of my house is in shambles. lol. I wish I was an effective cleaner. It literally takes me three times as long to do one task that it takes my husband to do with cleaning. I’ve been trying to focus on one area so that my time spent cleaning actually looks like I did something. I think it’s working, but I am definitely going to keep practicing! Does anyone else have this trouble or is it just me?

We had such a fun morning with Leona on her pumpkin patch field trip & it was sweet that Tyler could tag along too. I’ve had so many moments lately that I realize just how different my kids’ childhood is from how mine was.
I can’t remember a field trip in which both of my parents were present (chances are most of us didn’t have field trips with both parents). One of my parents usually had to work, if the other showed they were most definitely late 😂 and their personal “stuff” often kept them distracted from paying attention to what we had going on at school.
All that to say, it’s been so healing and freeing to get to do a “do-over” with my kids. To break the cycle, to decide what I want our life to be like and how I want to show up for them. We are not our past, it most certainly shapes us and impacts who we are today, but it doesn’t have to define us- we don’t have to stay there. Every day we get to wake up and start fresh, make new memories & new traditions. ✨

Journaling is a MASSIVE staple in my life and has been for about 4 years now. I swear by this tool, it will literally alter your life.
I get a lot of questions about how I journal, what do I write about, what do I say, how do I do it.
Well, after thinking about that for a minute I realized that I write way more about how I want to feel, than what I want to “have”. I focus on how I want to FEEL each day. How a new client makes me feel. How a new income makes me feel. How the gym makes me feel. How my diet makes me feel. How my mindset work makes me feel. How I want to feel in my relationships. How I want to feel in my friendships. How I want to feel in my relationship with my family to feel. How I want to feel about myself. How I want to feel about my work. How I want to feel about how I help people. How I want to feel about LIFE.
I don’t focus on the “how” or “what” but on the FEELING. I visualize it. I describe my surroundings and feelings around every situation I wish to be my reality.
Because you see, it's not your thoughts that attract your reality.. it's the feelings you associate with those thoughts. It's the way you FEEL when you think those thoughts. That feeling creates the vibration that will attract certain things into your life.
I also make sure to write in present tense, as if it is already true, already is my reality.
The more you do it, the more it becomes true. The more you actually BELIEVE it. Lots of “I am” and “I do” or “I feel” powerful statements and declarations.
This is how you change your subconscious thinking. This is how you reprogram.
This is one of the most POWERFUL tools I’ve ever learned. I have so many journal pages and screenshots of documented evidence that this all really works.
When you focus on the how, want, and when you’re putting out a seriously obsessive and needy emotion. That kind of vibration isn’t going to attract anything positive or good, in fact it's actually blocking what you want.
Remember, you can't manipulate the universe.
And the universe responds to action.
Lesson here: Stop focusing on what you
will get and focus on how you will feel.
That's where the real manifestation happens.
