"my soul honors your soul. i honor the place in you where the entire universe resides. i honor the light, love, truth, beauty & peace within you, because it is also within me. in sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one." I'm not an educated Yogi, nor do I teach yoga... I just LOVE going to yoga classes and once my favorite yoga instructor explained to me this phrase. Though not in the exact words above, it was very similar and I simply love this interp
This is absolutely one of my personal mantras. When I feel my heart start to race, or I'm getting ahead of myself, I ALWAYS come back to this one. Inhale-2-3-4, Exhale-2-3-4. Repeat as needed. So this week, I thought I'd give you a few ways to amend this mantra depending on what you need: Inhale love, exhale hate Inhale confidence, exhale doubt. Inhale the future, exhale the past. Inhale hope, exhale fear. Inhale compassion, exhale judgement. Inhale positivity, exhale anxiety
"just think happy thoughts and you'll fly" - peter pan Do you believe in the power of your thoughts and beliefs? I never did. I thought it was a bunch of hocus pocus (it's officially October - which means this is a totally acceptable saying and your reminder to go watch the movie! ;P). I read a lot of books and heard a lot of successful people talk about the power your mind and thoughts. It wasn't until I started observing that I finally discovered examples that made me belie
"You cannot be brave without fear" - Mellody Hobson FEAR. We all want to shrink away from it...or pretend it doesn't exist and ignore it. But I love the quote from Mellody...bravery can only exist in the presence of fear! Think about all of the times you felt most proud of yourself. Or think of your biggest accomplishment. _______________ required a lot of bravery, right? Fear is not necessarily a bad thing. It's meant to protect us and keep us safe. But sometimes staying saf
"You're imperfect and you're wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging" - Brene Brown This is a mantra, a quote, a saying that I wish I could plaster all over every client's bathroom mirrors, phone backgrounds, notebooks...just everywhere! Because it is probably the biggest struggle I see so many clients have with NUTRITION! That sounds strange, right? Worthiness impacting nutrition choices...but it's so true. When you have a low self-worth, you are natural
"Look at life through eyes of LOVE" You know when things aren't going your way and you can just spiral into a black sea of self-pity. It's in those moments we really need to remember this mantra "I HAVE LOVE." This is actually something I've learned on my journey to strengthen my "self-love muscle." When I was feeling down before, it was SO easy to spin out of control because I didn't appreciate or love myself. But now that I have that self-respect and have learned how to spi
"And I will hold myself to a standard of GRACE not perfection" This mantra - Give Yourself Grace - has become my LIFE mantra....as I'm sure any of my clients could tell you. I preach it to them just as often as I preach it to myself! In fact, it may as be on a gift you receive when you sign up for the Mindfull Makeover ;) I posted this on Instagram yesterday: 1) To be patient and know everything happens for a reason and unfolds just as it should 2) To give myself grace I had
"patience is not the ability to wait but how you act while you're waiting" -joyce meyer So often, we want something...and we want it NOW, not later! It's really, really hard to be patient, especially when you want something so badly. For me, having patience and playing the waiting game is where my faith becomes very active. I know my trust and faith is wavering whenever I start to wonder "When, God, when?" or I start to become impatient. When I start to ask these questions, I
"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown) I'm not sure about you, but that quote gives me chills! PEACE was one of my core desired feelings at the beginning of the year (I wrote about them here). I did the activity again YESTERDAY with my Mindfull Makeover ladies. This time I got: PEACE. JOY. AUTHENTIC. ENOUGH. So to bring up the Desire Map's
"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy." -Dale Carnegie Do you want to wave the white flag? Throw up your hands and just be done with it all? Hey, that's ok! Sometimes those days and moments will happen and if we don't surrender to them occasionally, well, we could make ourselves truly miserable! But once you have your pity party and sulk fest [as I refer to
“Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!”
― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free Do you ever feel like you seem to rush ahead of yourself? Like you completely miss what is
"Live with intention.
Walk to the edge.
Play with abandon.
Choose with no regret.
Appreciate your friends.
Continue to learn.
Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.”
― Mary Anne Radmacher Living intentionally is something that I personally attempt to do every day. What does this mean exactly? To me, living intentionally means that everything I do has a deeper meaning or purpose behind it. This doesn't mean that I do
“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.” — Ann Landers Sometimes letting go can be one of the hardest things to do...letting go of relationships, materials, habits... But letting go can bring about a world of good. Letting go creates more space and room in your life, especially for more positive experiences. Often, we carry around worries
