Connecting with nature was super easy when we lived in the country—we had forty acres, so I just walked outside and was basically surrounded with it. Now we live in the suburbs, and while this isn’t new for me, connecting with nature takes a more conscious effort. So here are six simple ways you can connect with some nature today:Read More
In all of the books I’ve read on the law of attraction there is the same idea that ‘your life is what you consciously create.’
And it’s been a really hard thing for me to wrap my brain around. What about all of the people in poverty? Or all of the wars, starvation, sexual abuse, sex trafficking, etc. Did those people consciously create that?Read More
They say you can never have too many books…or I think that’s what people used to say. Maybe. Not really sure. But I'm going to pretend like it’s a for sure saying because then I don’t have to admit that I might have too many books.Read More
“I’m not good enough”—it’s the root of all our toxic thoughts.
I started reading “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay the other day, though I’ve had it for almost 8 months. I guess I wasn’t ready to read it. The idea is that our thoughts create our reality, including disease in the body, with resentment, criticism, and guilt causing the most damage.Read More
How many of you experience feelings on a daily basis? I assume all of you, unless you’re a robot, which is also fine. And you probably know that because our emotions are chemical messengers, they’re not just limited to our minds and can show up as physical symptoms in our bodies;Read More
I left my leadership conference a day early. Yup.
I was sharing all the adventures, doing all the things, and then boom. Was gone. And maybe that seems crazy. We drove from Missouri, to North Carolina, to Georgia just to be there. Paid for our tickets, our Airbnb. This was both a time and money investment for us. But here’s the thing; while most people are all about the hustle, I’m working towards alignment.Read More
I’m going through some major life shifts lately…a lot of healing, so I’m saying goodbye to toxic people. Not because “toxic” is a trending word lately, but because some people are actually toxic and harm your health. Like it’s literally a thing and can create more stress, weight gain, thyroid issues, and more…but it’s also important to note that “toxic” is not the same as “annoying” or “frustrating.”Read More
You are not a reflection of those who can’t love you.
Let me say it again: YOU ARE NOT A REFLECTION OF THOSE WHO CAN’T LOVE YOU. Someone on the internet said it–I couldn’t find the source
You are not what people say about you.
You are not what people think about you.
And you are worthy of love.
It’s okay to set boundaries with people and to set boundaries with yourself.
I used to hike alone all the time when I lived in Utah… I always told people where I was going, when they should expect me home, always went to highly trafficked trails, listened to my intuition, and never went close to dark. Then people kept telling me it wasn’t safe (mostly because of creeps that I haven’t encountered yet) and so I started hiking only if I had a buddy. But the thing is, I was never afraid hiking alone;Read More
