"If you're doing anything in life that's not making your heart sing, that's not fueling your passion to get up on a daily basis, then you're not fulfilling your role as a human being on this planet." - Layne Beachley (from The Secret: HERO) What makes your Heart sing?
It’s Monday, and I’ve started this week off on the right foot so I wanted to say THANK YOU to all of you on Instagram. I need to express appreciation for three reasons: 1. You’re taking the time to read this; 2. I just finished reviewing a property I believe is a great property for my investors to crowdfund for; and 3. You’re here to support my journey. Without YOU, my business wouldn’t be the same. So, thanks. Really!
Back in the studio today after a beautiful and busy weekend … on Saturday Maria and I woke up well before dawn and headed up to Maine, NY for the 2019 Maine Fest Plein Air Paint Out, kindly organized by my artist friend Richard Henry. After registering my canvases, we drove around in the rain for an hour, trying and failing to find a paintable scene. I had half a mind to drive home and go back to bed, but on the advice of another artist we finally stopped at a local park and hiked in to a creek trail, where Maria found this view. In the end I couldn’t have been more fortunate – by the time I was set up to paint, the rain had stopped, and the clouds never broke all day. For the past few years, I have only painted plein air in full sun, and I forgot how peaceful it can be when the light doesn’t change! I was able to paint for 7 hours straight in consistent light, completely skipped lunch, and got so engrossed in the experience that I barely made it back in time for the judging 😅. The trophies turned out to be little works of art themselves – a local resident is a 3D printing enthusiast, and he printed the trophies using the Main Fest logo as the basis for his design. I was grateful to win First Place in the “out of town scenes” category, and I even sold the painting to a very nice woman who grew up swimming and playing in the creek 😊. Meanwhile, Maria had a lovely day exploring, journaling, and taking a lot of beautiful photos. We celebrated on the way home at our favorite little Italian restaurant and resolved to start taking more plein air day trips from now on! This painting is 12x9”, oil on linen panel. It was also one of the rare days when I used every single color on my palette, and almost every brush!

monday motivation at its finest @thegoodtrade 🥰
what is one goal of yours that you’d like to accomplish this week?🧘🏼♀️📚👩🏼💻 i’d like to get my @basipilates chest lift just a little bit higher 😉 (just one of 💯)
We all have ideas of what progress may look like. Here’s the thing, our ideas and visions are flawed. Progress might be staying in bed 30 minutes instead of 40. It might be losing 7 lbs instead of 20. It might mean being happier instead of earning six figures. Progress is progress. Stay on the path and appreciate your leaps.
"Chi ha detto Che tutto quello che cerchiamo
Non è sul palmo di una mano
E che le stelle puoi guardarle
Solo da lontano
Dove la mia città scompare
E l'orizzonte è verticale
Ma nelle foto hai gli occhi rossi
E vieni male
Coraggio lasciare tutto indietro e andare Partire per ricominciare
Che se ci pensi siamo solo di passaggio
E per quanta strada ancora c'è da fare
Amerai il finale..."
Sometimes, we just need to:
Stop and stare.
Stop and think.
Stop and feel.
Stop and stretch.
Stop and smile.
Stop and laugh.
Stop and breathe.
Stop and jump.
Stop and call a loved one.
Stop and smell the air.
Stop and take a good look around.
....Because we still can.
We take the little things for granted, until we no longer have them.
Don’t be in such a hurry, slow down & take in every second. You never knowwww what tomorrow may bring, and right now.. if you have health, you really do have it all.
I can’t control what my heart feels and can’t control a lot of the bad things but I won’t stop driving myself to be my best, I’ll keep moving forward even when my heart is tired. I’ll be thankful that God has being within my spirit. I’ll be thankful for the challenges life has brought me which are making me stronger. I’ll fight against my fears. I’ll believe that I can wake up and sometimes slowly or a bit faster, I’ll keep moving. I’ll make sure to change step by step everyday to become a better version of myself, to get where I want to be. The heart sometimes screams for something new. The only way is to have hope. 💖🌺🙏🙏🙏🙏 #innerinsight#evolving#positivity#spiritualawakening#changes#new#gratitude
Good morning! This week on the podcast, @tammisalas talks about an issue in a relationship where she thought she was being manipulated. She and I work it out by talking about things like boundaries and agency that steer us clear of drama and keep us in the solution. Find it wherever you listen to podcasts 🎧 Thank you for listening, commenting and sharing 💜

EXCUSE ROULETTE. If you don’t want to do it, you’ll always find an excuse. I’ve forced myself to start replacing my excuses with “that’s not a priority for me” or “that’s not serving me right now”. It might sting, but it’s the truth. And if you can’t handle the way it sounds, then CHANGE something about that.
I used to play this game too. I was always too tired. I didn’t have enough time. My some kinda planet was in retrograde. WHATEVER I could come up with. If you don’t want it, I can’t fault you or judge you or change your desire. But if you DO want it and you’re making excuses, let’s change that.
I’m just as tired after a 12 hour workday as I used to be. I have the same number of hours in the day you do. I still have days where I don’t want to...but I decided that I couldn’t live with saying “my health is not a priority”. Your mental and physical health is ALL YOU HAVE. If you’re not taking care of it, you’re slowly undermining the basis for everything else in your life.
So...come up with your excuse for the day. Sit with it. And then LET THAT SHIT GO. Then pick up your mantra, your vision for manifesting your best you, your whatever sets your soul on fire. Pick it up and go do the damn thing ❤️.
Scared? Good. That means you’re pushing just as much as you should. But you don’t have to do it alone. You can get accountability, guidance, support, and more love than you ever thought you’d find in a tribe of women. Getting your own personal cheerleader/coach/fitness fairy godmother (that’s me, y’all) is just one message away 💌.

New week! New opportunities! Fresh start!
I’ve found routine to be so important for so many reasons. I’ve fallen to love waking up early, doing my gratitude journal and having a good sweat session before heading off to work. It’s become natural for me.
Not being in my routine throws my days and my body completely off wack. Do you follow a daily routine? Have a gratitude journal? It’s been so uplifting for me to reflect on what I’m grateful for every day and has really changed my spirits to be more positive day to day.
Whatever your routine is, I hope you started your week off right and are ready to crush your goals just like I am!👊🏻🤸🏻♀️ #mondaymotivation#goals#routine#gratitude
Senhor, que eu seja o que tu quiseres, porém, dá-me a graça da fidelidade. Que eu nunca possa esquecer de onde tu me tirastes que eu possa sempre lembrar do teu sacrifício vivo na cruz... Me contem como vai ser a semana de vocês... A minha vai ser maravilhosa 🙌 .
Pt. 3: Your boundaries are your quest. I could explain this, but it will break the glass cover on your heart, and there's no fixing that. You must have shadow and light source both. Listen, and lay your head under the tree of awe. ~ Rumi
Last weekend a hurricane blew through Atlantic Canada. New Brunswick was only expecting a tropical storm. So my family (dog included) packed up and headed North.
A few scratches on our truck, a broken branch, banged up sports equipment and 1 lost shingle was the worst of it for us. I felt so grateful.
Being grateful every day has major benefits including feeling happier and attracting more of the things you are grateful for (and much more). What makes you feel grateful? Comment below. 😊

Message for the week ~
“I AM moving forward in the direction I choose, bringing me closer to achieving my goals and divine life purposes”
Wild and free, the horse chooses to run in any direction at its own pace. Understand that everything in your life right now is completely within your power to change. Once you co-operate with your souls request to be free from emotional or physical ties, you become limitless and can run free again.
The arrival of the horses brings news of personal journeys and new directions. The white horse brings truth, honor and integrity, and the dark horse brings a shadow of mystery, pride and illusions. Bringing both together to create a yin/yang balance allows you to understand what is preventing your freedom. Follow through with your agreements before you make new commitments.
You may feel that you are not in control of your life right now. In fact, you are. You can decide at this moment how to react to the circumstances within your environment. Observe your surroundings and discover what your soul really wants. You already have the power and the freedom to choose within you. The question is, what direction do you wish to run? Honor your free will by choosing to acknowledge your desire for a break and a change, even if it is only temporary.
Right now, your soul desires freedom. By removing restrictions, you can move in any direction. Feeling trapped or burdened by family affairs, responsibility, finance, relationships and or career choices can sometimes make us feel suffocated. Your soul is trying to release you from commitments as you yearn for the freedom to make your own choices. Breaking away from the old attachments and responsibilities, your soul is asking you to be playful and to have some fun!
The horse asks you to simplify your life and expand your knowledge. Seek more information before you make future decisions. It is essential through this growth period that you find the freedom that you need to allow yourself to flourish. You have the power to change the direction of your life.
Yes, YOU!✨ Come by the Lotus to celebrate this beauty and FLOW AS YOU ARE all week long📿🙏🕉

If we wait to take out the special dishes and dance only on special occasions - how sad that would be !
We woke up today ! Really give that thought !
WE WOKE UP TODAY!
We get to share this moment together because we woke up today!
Did you express gratitude as your eyes opened to see a new day ?
Thank you for giving me another day to be here on this beautiful planet ! Thank you for giving me another day by his side ! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to take my baby girl to school!
These are the first thoughts I chose to focus on before I stepped out of bed .
So much of our lives are spent assuming we will have tomorrow - with the same people - having the same celebrations . We wake up saying ohhh Fuck I have to go back to work today. Its Monday . Really?
You GET to go back to work today ! It’s Monday !!!!! Focus on changing your tone when you speak - create a positive vibration so you can feel a positive experience in the moment !
It’s Monday ! You got to wake up today and you get to go to a job!
It’s a Great Day to be ALIVE !
