Are you someone who thrives off a neat environment for a clear mind?
I definitely do! I’m one of those people who starts clearing things up and cleaning when I’m feeling stressed because it helps to clear the physical and mental clutter.
Sometimes clearing out the clutter and giving everything a place can also help you with mental clarity.
You may not have a designated office space, but even clearing the dining table or kitchen bench can be a great space so get some work done.

“When you’re in the frame is hard to see the picture”⠀
Sometimes you face challenging situations, situations that make you feel overwhelmed and frustrated, situations that don’t allow you to see beyond what’s in front of you.⠀
And because you’re so emotionally attached to the circumstances, you can’t clearly see the options that help you work through your priorities and make a decision.⠀
As a coach, I see this in my clients. They find themselves in situations where they feel stuck, they lack direction and they simply don’t know what to do.⠀
And I’m there to listen, to guide them and ask quality questions that allow them to gain the clarity they need to be able to solve the problem themselves and move forward. Because the answers are always within YOU.⠀
However, having an external perspective can help you work through it. Whether it’s a coach or a close friend, having an impartial opinion of the situation will help you understand it more effectively and therefore be able to see the options and the possibilities, instead of just the obstacles.⠀
Do you agree with me? Let me know in the comments below⠀
From highschool athlete to freshman 15, and another 15 before graduation...to today, mom of 3. #transformationtuesday
I often hear from people ‘you don’t understand!’ or ‘it’s easy for you!’ BULLSHIT💥
I carried so much shame and embarrassment when I gained 30 lbs in University. I had people talk about me behind my back and straight to my face...judging me.
You don’t have to feel bad for me, or sorry for me. I don’t! The point is, we all struggle with something. We have a choice to give up, wallow in our pain.
OR we can lean into the struggle and decide to do something about it. ‘Change is hard! Growth is hard! But what is even harder is remaining in a place where you don’t belong’

Don’t mess with the best 🤑

The more I learn, the more I see life as a balancing act.
This quote highlights an a important dichotomy: setting easy, manageable goals versus ambitious, aspirational goals. As usual, the answer lies somewhere in the middle. I want nothing more than to accomplish every single goal that I set for myself. After all, why would I intentionally choose a goal that I believe I couldn’t accomplish? The idea seems ridiculous.
The Bruce Lee quote provides some insight into this paradox. It definitely feels good to knock out goals, but the celebration is usually short lived - on to the next one. The problem with setting comfortable goals is optimizing for limiting risk. These small wins are important for building momentum, but if all of my goals were like this I’d limit my big thinking and dreaming. The best strategy is to break up big projects into smaller goals.
I believe that we get the most satisfaction from pursuing what we want, but we also ascribe personal value proportionally to the difficulty of the challenge. I understand failure is possible with big goals, but I’d rather fail pursuing a dream than sticking to what I believe I can accomplish. Ultimately I can learn from the entire experience and enjoy the process of the challenge.
Right now my goals are to finish school so I can start making “healthy” people better. I see healthcare doing a great job when we’re sick, but ultimately lacking when it comes to supporting people that aren’t acutely sick. In addition, I plan to leverage myself so that I can impact a greater community than just that patients that I will come to know in my clinic.
Don’t limit your thinking! Thanks to @timferriss for curating interesting quotes to think on each week.

It’s been so good getting to know and work with this couple over the last 170 days. @walden.hudson & @lookinglassnz have a huge future ahead and they’re only just getting started 💎
Repost from @jonorowe .
What an amazing blessing to be able to hear this couple share about the change in their life in just 170 DAYS of having access to holistic mentorship.
It was quite extraordinary to learn about personal growth in two major areas of their lives, personal finances and relationships.
I believe that having a mentor in life is one of the major gaps of our generation. Everyone seems to think they can do life on their own, but what I’ve experienced is that it’s so much more rewarding to have someone you trust help navigate the big decisions in life so we can strive to be the person our creator destined us to be!
Personal Development - “You Can Never Cross The Ocean Unless...
You Have The Courage to Lose Sight of The Shore.”
Our Ocean is always the glorious adventure you imagine your life to be like. The only question that will matter is: did you muster up the courage in this life to set out to sea far enough that you no longer see the shore, meaning, that you embrace your fears and your journey far enough to give yourself the possibility of arriving at your desired destination.🤔
You see, life asks you to be courageous, to trust, when only uncertainty remains. That is, all great things in life demand your faith that you will not perish in your pursuit.
Let faith light your journey. And let courage embolden you, so that all your skills/wisdom may be brought to bare.
Let it a reminder, fortune favours the bold.

So, I was sitting here talking with a good friend and she says "I wish I had your drive to change".....It really hit me while it seems like this has been a piece of cake for me it hasn't by no means.
Earlier today I posted pictures iv saved since I began my journey showing the ups and downs in weight I went through and that's been over a course of a couple of years. I struggled and struggled for so long. The hard part wasn't necessarily getting up and getting a workout in, because gawd knows more days then any I still dread getting up and doing them, it wasn't the eating either, because well I get to eat whatever I want, SERIOIUSLY!!!! The really hard part was learning to love myself and ALL of me!! That means the extra jiggle, the stretch marks, the cellulite, LOVE IT ALL no matter what and the rest will fall into place. Once I started loving myself and respecting it, it all started to fall into place and made getting up early to do my workouts before anything easier and worth it and a priority, it made eating more of the right foods easier while knowing I can still have treats but understanding they taste great and they wont fuel my body. When you've consistently ate good clean healthy foods you feel better, have more energy, have a better mood, and want to do more things to stay active.
I found my self love through reading special books everyday for the past year consistently and its allowed me to make this quantum leaps. Course seeing physical change has helped power me too but before I started to see the change little things I did everyday whether I wanted to or not is what got me here today!!! Believe it or not this could be you too!!! All you gotta do is message me, shoot me your email, pm me, whatever it takes im here for you girl and youll never have to struggle again!!! #personaldevelopment#selflove#findingmyway
I know, we think we’re on point, and thorough, but if you’re not allowing in any outside feedback (including from God) you are ill prepared to RECEIVE that new, new!
The new husband, job, client base, all the new, new your praying for requires new moves.🤷🏽♀️
Jesus was constantly leaning on the Father for gems, wisdom and strength. You, my love, are not above Him, are you?🙃 Get you some wisdom (and strength), so you can excel in that new, new arena, season, or marriage.🙂Who is this for?

🍄This quote of Terence McKenna fits my last post about him - you shouldn’t believe anybody but find out for yourself (with the help of plants)

Would you knowingly and willingly give your destiny over to a judgmental, hypercritical, scared, know-it-all? I think not. So don’t.
Your repetitive thoughts, beliefs and assumptions—little by little and over time—forge your destiny.
Watch your thoughts. They become words.
Watch your words. They become actions.
Watch your actions. They become habits.
Watch your habits. They become character.
Watch your character. It becomes your destiny.
Next week kicks off one of my most favorite seasons of the year. A season for giving, being grateful, giving back, and helping others. Family and friends come to town, we get a few days off, and it’s a time to refocus and take stock. 🦃
Years ago (more recently than I’d like to admit), I really sucked at holidays. I set insane expectations (does this sound familiar?), felt obligated to do it all, and usually wound up melting down and yelling at someone before it was all over.
When I began journeying to a more self-care oriented place, the holidays just got better. Somewhere in there, I realized the futility of trying to be all things to all people and produce these Hollywood holidays for my family. Now, I focus on a few things that I really want to do, and try to go with the flow on the rest. I set some boundaries early on, so I don’t exhaust myself, and I really enjoy my time with my people.
That being said, I am going to be taking some time to be with my family next week, and won’t be online as much. I want you to have a wonderful time with your loved ones, too, so I’m sharing a couple things this week to help you out! First, I’ve put together a short and sweet guide to go by for holiday self-care that I wish someone had given me back when I struggled so much. I’ll also be publishing some thoughts on toxic relationships and environments and how to handle them (cause let’s be real - you may not love everyone you see this holiday season). The blog post will go up this week and the holiday survival guide drops Friday to my e-mail subscribers. Make sure you’re on the list, cause if you aren’t, you won’t get it! (Link in bio!) Wishing you a blessed and happy holiday season.

This 👌 I had a half an hour nap today when I could have been doing a million things on my to-do list. Why? Because you can't pour from an empty cup and Lily woke 4 times last night. I woke up like I hadn't slept at all. Every time I write a new list of things to do for the following day, I block off a time segment to do something for myself, even if that segment lasts all of 10 minutes. What do you do daily to look after yourself? If you can't find something, maybe it's time to start 🧖♀️💆♀️🛌✍🛍🚴♀️🧘♀️🌅🕛
. . . .
Is your desire to grow greater than your fear of staying stuck?? YES? NO? You’d like to think so? 🤔 Trust your path, even through the scary shit! It’s all leading to your purpose, I promise! Wishing you ALL the fortitude you need, to keep fighting the fear and following the light! ✌🏼💕💡
We believe that we are not Worthy or Enough so we ask in the name of God, the universe, the creator, angels, saint of this or that or the other. We use ANYONE'S name BUT our own. WHY?
Because you believe you have no power and you've witnessed miracles in other's name, so you ask in their name forgetting that life is merely an ongoing process of creation.
We call forth what we think, feel and say. Don't you already know that to be true on some level? THIS is actually how powerful you are.
Life is not meant to be hard. For us to suffer, to live in pain. It is NOT a test and we are NOT here to learn anything. Our purpose here is to remember who we want to BE and to evolve into that version.
Life is an opportunity, a process which we discover - re-member that we are worthy and always have been. We make up rules as we go along and change them to fit our present reality. We create this idea of "right" and "wrong" not based on fact but to simply define "who we are". _
See that then means, that people are acting based on their model of the world - WHO they believe themselves to be. They've practiced feeling really bad and negative patterns for long that that is now their default setting. WHAT IF you flipped the script?
See, when you bury the pain you only strengthen the roots. You gotta meet that shame, that "story" in the dirt then pull the root and plant seeds you actually want to grow. What if you believed you were enough and worthy? What if you started acting like you had all the power? Spoiler, because you do.
Decide who you want to BE and then do everything in your power to BE that. When we know who we want to BE, we start to make DECISIONS and take ACTION that will get us there. BE first, then DO.
Want a little reminder to wear around your neck? I designed these @worthywands for this very reason. It's time to remember we've always been enough and are as worthy as we decide to be.

"The following content is based loosely on true events. May contain scenes for entertainment purposes." What if social media had these kinds of disclaimers?
Sometimes I think it should, social media in a lot of ways has become and extension of reality TV culture.
Are we becoming too immersed? Or worse are we letting it pour in to our own lives a little too much?
What if we didn't spend hours scrolling through 'perfection' and picking away at how our own lives could never match up?
Deep down I think we all know social media is to be taken with a grain of salt and I'm so thankful to so many wonderful peeps on here increasingly sharing their truth. The good and the ugly in life.
But who hasn't got caught in the rabbit hole of self doubt and deprecation scrolling through the explore page looking at white sand beaches and flawless skin or perfect peachy bums and washboard abs?
I know I have and as this funny old app in all its horror and glory has become and increasingly bigger part of my life I have developed some strategies to keep me sane and insure social media is a positive force in my life rather than taking from it.
Here are my tips for you!
1️⃣ I post things that mean something to me or that I feel provides value. I don't get caught up on engagement or numbers anymore. Likes and follows won't bring you happiness or up your worth.
2️⃣ I only follow accounts that make me happy, inspired or entertain me. Anything that makes me feel any negative type of way has got to go.
3️⃣ If I don't like something I see I don't engage with it. If it's on my page, block and delete.
4️⃣ I write positive comments or messages to others. Being kind is energising and makes me feel more positive coming away from SM. Adding to the positivity is a great way of combating the negativity.
5️⃣ I avoid the explore page. I think the algorithm got me fucked up because I rarely see anything that's of interest to me there! I like to stay in control of the media I'm consuming, on social media and mainstream.
What do you think, is social media bringing us all closer together or is it stealing our joy? 👼😈 P.S there is a booty day workout in my story 🍑
Shoutout to personal development, daily investment into myself, food freedom, and an incredible tribe for helping me get my life back 🙌🏼
For someone who has not dealt with disordered eating, or an eating disorder.. it’s really hard to explain the complexity our brains create around food.
For those struggling: Get help. Professional help. And know that it can and will get better.
For those no longer struggling but still finding it hard to mend the wounds it causes: get honest with yourself. Are you actually free from your issues? Or are you convincing yourself that your mindset towards foods and the guilt you feel is normal and healthy?
Food freedom looks different for everyone, but I encourage you to sit with your demons and face the truth behind where you are currently at, and where you want to be.
I am unwilling to give up the foods I love to achieve or maintain a certain weight/body type that society has made me believe is the definition of healthy, fit, and beautiful.
You know what’s more beautiful than being 5lbs lighter? Being able to enjoy LIFE, with zero guilt or stress🙌🏼🍔
