Do not feel discouraged if the challenge you’re facing seems beyond your capabilities to meet. Instead BELIEVE that there is greater potential and power within you. Then - and most importantly - act true to this belief. Respond with strength to the challenge you face, so you may realise that most liberating truth ...that there is so much more power, potential and strength within you. You just have to believe it first. 🙏💙
“Cuz I’m going going, back back to Guate Guate!!” 🎶😀🇬🇹😍✨✈️ #FlashbackFriday to the magical country just south of Mexico, the motherland of the great Mayan peoples (who amongst many other things invented the number “0” for themselves), a place of endless tropical fruits, forrests of avocados, home to the cacao fruit, connoisseur of coffee creation, volcanoes, black sand beaches and the northern most country of Central America: Guatemala! 🙏💗✨🇬🇹 Have a spectacular weekend all!! Much Love
[ HARD AT WORK WITH ☕️]
Yup, I plopped down at another coffee shop to: (1) get out of the house for a change of scenery, (2) get some sun, (3) be around the hustle and bustle of people, and (4) up my productivity. I’ve been heads down working hard on my intentions, gaining clarity and shifting my thinking about my business, and working on my content and its marketing efforts. (I finished my book bonuses. Yay!)
I had to dig deep about how I want to show up for you, my audience, and especially my clients. I’ve been surrounding myself with one-sided conversations to learn from amazing influencers like @julssolomon, @jennakutcher, and @amyporterfield. I’m learning so much about being more vulnerable and share openly, especially with my book and podcast launching next week (yah, I’m still in awe about that as it is such a big part of me sharing myself with the world.) There are fears, there are worries, and there are so many unknowns.
But what I know for sure is that I had to make a decision, one after another. I don’t need to have everything figured out before taking action. Waiting and striving for perfection isn’t helpful. Feedback is. Getting it done is better than none. That’s what we had to do when I was at a startup—we just had to make the decisions and figure out things along the way. The difference then was that I had responsibilities to others and there were constant external impending deadlines to push me to make decisions. Now that I’m working for myself, I realized I was missing that same level of intense pressure, so I kept on putting things off. Well, I am declaring that I have made a decision—I am no longer giving into excuses. I am longer playing small and safe. I can do this one step at a time! Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, ahhhh, ahhhh... Here I come, world!

There is a fine line between investing in yourself to change and investing in yourself to blame.
Those who invest in themselves and take radical responsibility to change or dance with their darkness, face their fears and continue on, are the ones who notice their world change in front of them.
Those who invest in themselves and do not take radical responsibility, rather, stay stuck in their rightness and ego indulging self, who choose to blame, are the ones who's world's don't change. Problems become plenty and self investing becomes low on their priorities.
When one chooses to do the work, and I mean DO THE WORK, it is knowing that it will be hard, fuck ups will be made, tears will be shed, blood will be bled, but you continue on into the shadows because you know by excavating and bulldozing your fears, are far bigger than just digging up shit, but are ALL about digging up the GOLD within the shit.
I can give you the tools to chip away, the water to keep hydrated, the music to get you in the zone.
But I cannot and I mean WILL NOT do the work for you.
That is not my place to claim your gold.
That is your place, your right and your choice to claim it ALL ♡
Moça, sabe o porque da vulnerabilidade ser tão aterrorizante?
Porque ela pode revelar que o maior vilão da própria história somos nós mesmas.
É aterrorizante descobrir que você tem sido a pessoa que mais tem exigido perfeição de si mesma.
Difícil assumir que nos boicotamos.
Que somos o oprimido e ao mesmo tempo quem oprime também. 'tá tudo bem'
ou 'tudo mal'. mas não respeitamos nenhum dos dois.
não aceitamos a calmaria, não aceitamos o desastre.
Se tá tudo bem, procuramos algo para estar errado.
Se tá tudo errado, procuramos algo para estar certo.
Queremos a todo custo que o poder da razão roube o fôlego da emoção.
Mas, moça, escute...
Essa luta é em vão.
Do que adianta um humano reprimir a alma se ela é a bomba-relógio de sua humanidade?
Uma hora vem à tona.
Então é melhor aprender a ser melhor amiga de si, e entender que se proteger, primeiramente é se respeitar.
Pegue leve com seu próprio coração.🍃

A few years ago I found this picture on Instagram, it's a picture of Plitvice Lakes in Croatia. I said to David I would love to visit this place, it's spectacular, he said to me "oneday". Yesterday we spent the entire day exploring Plitvice Lakes National Park and it was better than the picture.
Someday for most midlifers is when they retire, by the time they retire they aren't physically fit enough to do what they want. Midlife is a great time to reassess your life priorities and start making your Somedays into Today. Check out the link in our bio for our free ebook on how to take a midlife checkup
Allow yourself to have breakdowns. We learn so much from them. You will look back on that moment and be grateful and proud of how far you have come. 💫
What I have found is that personally I have breakdowns right before breakthroughs. Lots of changes happen, or I sense that change is needed and I freak out. I am not yet familiar with what is ahead, but I know what is behind is not mine to be comfortable with any longer. I AM capable of more, so I jumped in despite not feeling ready. It is the only way we learn.
This week has been very transformational for me. I moved to my moms (bigger city than the small town I’ve grown up in), found a gym I love after trying out many, have applied to jobs around the area that I think I could enjoy in the meantime before taking my training, I’ve been gaining weight at a good pace, my lab work + mental health is so much better, I have so many content ideas, and I will be traveling for Yoga Teacher Training in the near future. I finally have trust with my parents and with myself that I can look after and feed myself (anorexia 6 years made this seem impossible). It’s the little things that have felt absolutely surreal. The inner changes.
I sought out discomfort for these last few months, but especially this week and I love it + will continue to. It’s honestly so sudden or I would have over thought all of it. Sometimes we just have to jump in with faith and trust that the universe will support us because even when it seems like it is not, IT IS. Crap happens, but it is up to you to own that 💩 and make what seems awful into something that leads you forward.
Learn + grow with gratitude & with courage.💛✨
Little story —>
The song “Got It In You” gave me so many chills while driving today that I actually started crying after holding in all the bliss for so long.😭 I’m actually proud of myself. These are the things I never thought I was capable of while deep in my Eating Disorder, and I’m proving that rude part of myself wrong. Stop doubting yourself, you have got it in you. 👏

The Rains Fall
Allow my smile to bring
the comfort of sunshine
as the rains fall,
your returning laughter
shall be our rainbow
when the storm has
Master Chef (show) talks about cooking and telling a story on a plate. I think it's so powerful to convey not only a story but a history, in savoury bite sized experiences. I love when dishes taste like 'home' or how a culture should if food replaced words. #20190919 #foodstory #365daysofgratitude
