That part in my @tedxcopenhagen workshop where the room full of 100+ people came to such beautiful utter silence, and proceeded to reflect on who they related to most: Ariel, Ursula, or Sebastian.🧜🏻♀️🐙🦀😆
Sometimes transformational work can be super confronting. When we figure out that our deepest issues that we’ve blamed others for our entire lives are actually at least partially created by us, it’s tempting to run for the hills. Which is why I like to bring Disney into the convo. It’s a lot easier to admit you’re constantly trying to fix people once you realize Sebastian did it first.😉

HAPPY 26TH BIRTHDAY TO ME!
The year I was born, 1992, was called The Year of the Woman in politics for breaking records in electing women into office.
In 1992 we elected more new women to Congress than any previous decade. In 2018, we blew that year out of the water. Looking back at 1992 now, it is pitiful that it was so astonishing and groundbreaking to elect just four women to the Senate in one single year and more new women – 24 – to Congress than in any previous decade
In 2016 Hillary Clinton was the first woman to win the ticket for a major political party and won the popular vote in the Presidential race. Also in 2016, 104 women were elected to Congress and 21 in the Senate.
In 2018, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar became the first Muslim congresswomen, Sharice Davids and Deb Haaland became the first Native American congresswomen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the youngest woman ever elected to Congress (age 29), Guam elected its first woman governor- former lawmaker Lou Leon Guerrero, Kyrsten Sinema was elected as Arizona's first female senator and is also the first openly bisexual person to serve in the Senate. This coming January, 42 new women will join Congress.
2018 has also been the year that so many women finally courageously stood up and said "I can't keep quiet" and came forward to speak out against monstrous men who have done wrong and gotten away with it for far too long, where women took political and corporate offices by storm, and where so many mothers sat down with their little boys and had much needed talks with them about how to become a real man. ✊✊✊
This has been another Year of the Woman, and I have no doubt in my mind that this title will ring true again in 2019, 2020, and so many more years because we aren't finished making history yet. ✊✊✊
An introvert, Ashwini was the quietest member of empowHER India's Self Help Groups. She narrates one incident which proved to be a turning point in her life, “I had lost my mobile phone a few years ago and I wanted to lodge a complaint at the police station. My husband dissuaded me from going there and refused to accompany me. I had bought the phone with my own savings and I decided I had to do something to get it back. I asked one of empowHER India's staff to accompany me.
The two of us went to the police station and were very nervous. A policewoman helped us out to register the complaint. I lost that phone but gained my confidence.
After that, I was no longer scared to go to local government offices. I have got my Aadhar card made and I regularly visit the bank. Today, whenever any woman in my village has to go to any government office, they ask me to come along.”
On 16th December 2018, Ashwini will represent those women whose voices often go unheard at #bajajelectricalspinkathon Mumbai 2018
She says, “Don’t be afraid to speak up”

Something I read yesterday really struck me:
“Everything external is a reflection of your internal landscape.”
It struck me because it’s beautiful, simple, and soul-piercing all at the same time.
How many of us make excuses for why we don’t have the things we want, all the while knowing exactly why we don’t have them?
How many of us feel stuck, like we’re in a vicious cycle without beginning or end?
How many of us cling to our “comfort zone”, even when it’s painful to stay there?
How many of us hide ourselves in others’ expectations?
How many of us hold on to clothes that don’t fit because of the “someday” lie that makes us hate ourselves when we look in the mirror?
And how many of us are tired of living the lie, not feeling enough, and not being self expressed in how we show up in the world?
If you’re reading this and you want to break through all that 👆🏻 BS, let’s schedule a Discovery Call and get you some Self Love through Style!

Who benefits from criticism and judgement?
What do you gain from feeling superior to someone else's fault? I would LOVE to know if you have answers to these questions because I cannot think of any.
Now who can benefit from a contribution of kindness or empathy? Everyone.
What do you gain from sharing your vulnerability, your generosity, and your gifts with others? Fullfilment, joy, self compassion.
Do you agree? Why do we defaultedly criticize instead of contribute kindness to others and ourselves.
Today marks 100 years since some women were first able to vote in elections! To celebrate the #EmpowHER team have launched a blog, to keep you up to date with the programme. Have a look at my Twitter to get all the details: @Hazziebo
We all strive to design our lives around our calendars and external expectations but what if we integrated the natural influences of the moon, the stars and seasons to provide energetic support and direction? Recalibrating our lives can be so much more fun when we look at our year seasonally and devise a plan that includes the elemental influences. Most of us believe that we all need to be moving at one pace throughout the year, achieving the same number of goals each week and sustaining our lives according to our workload. This is where we tend to give away our power and allow life to run us rather than designing our lives intentionally.
The ‘Forces of Nature’ all reside within us and can be accessed anytime with our focused intention. For example, I use the transformative quality of the Summer element to remove and release energies I no longer want or need. I do this in my healing and coaching work with clients as well. Our intention to make change or transformation in our lives is all in how we navigate our awareness and intention.
Tonight was filled with laughter and fun as we exchanged gifts 🎁 and heard a powerful message delivered by Pastor Doris.
We may not understand what’s happening while we’re in the “wait”. The place where we don’t know what’s going on or why. So while we are asking him if he sees what we see and hears what we hear, remember He knows what you do not and can see where we cannot. God is answering “Do you know what I know.” -Pastor Doris
Mama's, let me tell you a story about this moment. The universe shifted, the stars aligned, and this sweet soul entered my life. I was tired but so at peace. I was in shock, but totally secure. I was empowered, and completely terrified. The emotions can only be felt and not explained. My entire outlook on importance, my priority list, and my purpose changed in this moment. I became myself more than I ever knew. Shortly after, I then lost myself, but not in this moment. I was certain of my strength, of my courage, and of my ability to love myself so deeply to have brought this boy into existence. Being a Mom is thankless, it is hard work. It is draining, exhausting, and neverending in the most beautiful ways. It is wholeheartedly giving yourself to another human. It is influencing literally every entity of that soul from that moment you say hello. Mamas, we are all that our babies need. We are whole, complete, and they do not judge us. We need to give them our best we can in each moment and their love will never stray from the strength of the bond you had in this moment. I can't believe (still 18 months later) I carried, labored, delivered, and am now raising a beautiful baby boy. I cannot believe I endured 36 hours of contractions, and epidural, and some stitches. I cannot believe the visions and anxieties I had while my hormones sorted themselves out as I was deprived of sleep. But I would without hestitation do it all again for him and this moment. That is MOMpowerment.
Oooo coragem! 🙌 📸 Postar foto de Bikini no insta para aparecer ou simplesmente porque eu quero? .
Estava falando com um grupo sobre a “fama” da mulher brasileira. Há rótulos ridículos. Nunca passei por uma situação como as compartilhadas. E francamente, não sei como será a minha reação se um dia viver isso. Mas, acho que temos que encarar essa situação, não ficar com vergonha ou se sentir culpada. Temos que nos juntar, porque juntas somos mais fortes. Já quebramos muitos rótulos e cada vez mais estamos avançando. .⠀
🙄 Já sofri preconceito aqui por ser brasileira. Não queriam me ensinar esquiar, porque no Brasil eu não ia precisar. Minha reação? Chorar. Meu marido queria falar com a pessoa e também com a empresa. Eu? Só queria sair dali e voltar para casa, Brasil.
🤨 A segunda vez que ouvi na rua “volta para seu país” eu simplesmente dei meia volta e perguntei para a pessoa repetir NO MEIO DA RUA DE MANHATTAN. Falei que infelizmente meu inglês não era tão bom, mas que respeito não tem idioma.
🙂 Respeito. Isso é muito sério! Respeite pessoas, ideias, diferenças! Comece por você se respeitando, se amando. Comece em casa. Empodere suas filhas, amigas, mães, tias EMPODERE-SE!
. ✋❌ Não crie rótulos e não aceite rótulos se eles não fazem parte da sua verdade! Seja você! Confie em você e peça ajuda sempre que precisar! Preconceito é crime, mas o pior é que o preconceito é aprisionador de ideias.

Last year, the week of my 25th birthday I created a list of 25 things to do while I’m 25.
✔✔✔ My 26th birthday is in just a few days and I’ve accomplished a total of five of those things. 😬😬😬
I feel like I’ve failed in my goals and list of to-dos because I accomplished only 20% of what I set out to do. But many of the goals I didn’t cross off my list this past year haven’t been important to me since I wrote the list a year ago. I changed my passions, life, and desires over the past year, and so many of those things stopped being important to me.
Paying off all of our debt stopped being obtainable or important once we semi-accidentally found our dream home and also discovered the importance of a vacation to Hawaii, just the two of us, to reconnect after Cyle returned from deployment.
💯💯💯 Mastering a few skills I was (and still am) lackluster in, got replaced with wanting to improve other skills that directly related to my vision for my future. 💯💯💯
And the other goals I didn’t obtain were more of fun things to-do- such as going to Niagara Falls (which didn’t happen on our family trip to upstate NY due to the cost), traveling to Waco TX to visit Magnolia Market was replaced with a trip to Michigan to visit my girlfriends and other items on my list were simply, well, forgettable. 🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️
Did I fail to check off all 25 of my goals for this past year? Yes, but the real failure was in setting the RIGHT kind of goals for myself to achieve. 💯💯💯
This is why analyzing what makes you fulfilled, what makes you achieve your true desired feelings, and your ‘why’ is so damn important- otherwise you’re just throwing shit onto a goals list and hoping you can cross them off by next year.

This is the face of someone who’s finally starting to own her power.
In the last 48 hours (going on the last week), I’ve been coming to terms with this fact:
I am a master manifestor.
And I’m realizing that I’ve manifested
in my life, good and bad.
This is what it truly means to be responsible for your life.
Realizing that you create it all.
So, with that realization, I’ve also learned (i.e., experienced) the following:
✨ Manifestation works to the degree of emotion attached to what you’re trying to manifest (both positive and negative).
✨ Manifesting happens super quickly when you’re really excited about something AND simultaneously relinquish the attachment to it happening.
✨ Just when you think the thing you want isn’t going to happen, and you surrender to the universe and TRUST, that’s the secret sauce of manifestation.
✨ It’s all mindset. If you have subconscious beliefs around worthiness or not deserving the thing, no matter how many affirmations you say, it ain’t gonna happen. Clear out the mindset crap and you’ll manifest like crazy.
Speaking of clearing out mindset crap and manifesting what you want...
❓Did you know that the way you show up in the world (i.e., your wardrobe) is a direct reflection of your inner work?
❗️Well, now you know. Clearing out your closet is a physical representation of clearing out your limiting beliefs and energetically making space for what you want to manifest.
❗️Aligning your wardrobe to your Next Level Self is the physical representation of acting as if you already have the thing you want to manifest to have it manifest even faster.
