My food philosophy ✨
It’s all about:
Being health conscious, not weight conscious.
Making choices based on internal cues, not based on external rules.
Making choices from a place of self care, not self judgement.
Making choices based on love and trust, not hate and fear.
And eating healthy is so much more than eating kale.
Your relationship with food matters.
Your thoughts about yourself matter.
The way you speak to yourself matter.
And truly, eating healthy has space for both 🥬 and 🍰! One for your body, one for your soul 💗It’s the intention behind your actions that really matters, both psychologically and physiologically. The quality of your thoughts is more powerful than anything you can put in your body. And how you think about the food you’re eating will impact the way your body breaks it down and assimilate (or don’t assimilate) the nutrients.
And beyond all that, it’s knowing that your wellbeing is more than what you eat. It’s also how you nourish yourself on all levels - body, mind, soul and beyond.
A jar of fresh honey from a beekeeper, engineer, English student of mine.
This is like gold to me for a few reasons- not the least of which being that I am out in the world on a new path right now. The honey, for its sweetness, its energy, its purity, its local origin and its loving, careful production feels a lot like a fortifying protection- gift and a tool for what lies ahead.
Many of you know that I got divorced last summer.
I have a million things to say about this - so many eye opening lessons, so much uncomfortable wisdom, so much room for change and awakening. All of this will come out over time. For now though... I’m eating fresh Moroccan honey and drinking lots of water and practicing yoga like my life depends on it.
I’m telling all my loved ones how I feel. I’m honoring and admiring those who have taken care of me and continue to take care of me throughout 2018 and into the next year.
I’m coaching others on how to allow themselves to open up into their true purpose and joy. Releasing the mental, social and cultural constructs of what it means to work, be successful, be lovable and make money.
Obviously my word for 2019 is: EXPAND. Or any variation there of: Expansion, Expanding. I embody all the parts of speech.
What’s your word? What do you want to invoke in yourself this year?
It’s so simple to be kind.
I challenge you to be kind even when someone’s being a jerk to you.
A course in miracles says in my defenselessness, my safely lies.
So try being defenseless today with the people you encounter.
Ask yourself, how can I be more kind today?
And go out with the intention of spreading kindness everywhere you go.
Comment KIND if you agree
I DARE you.
I dare you to do that thing that you too have been putting off…that thing that you’ve declared you don’t have time for, or don’t actually need to do right now.
It could be meditating, journaling, working out, going to a class that you’ve always wanted to try, getting back to a class that you said you would get back to over a month ago if not longer, going out on a date with yourself, going on a date with someone else, buying yourself some kind of gift, or even booking an appointment to talk to someone that might be able to help you, or just doing a ritual that brings you joy…literally whatever it is, however big or small, DO IT…
I’m daring you, because I have been resisting writing for the past couple weeks. And when I finally sat my ass down tonight, found space, and committed time to doing this thing that I knew would help me but I kept avoiding it, it felt so good. It brought a little more clarity and a little more groundedness that I feel like I’ve been lacking for a little while.
Ask someone to keep you accountable to doing it, or to do it with you if you need to!
So this is my little nudge to you, to make that thing that you’ve been putting off a priority (try to break it down into small steps if you can), that thing that you know will help you at least a little bit but you’ve been too stuck in the resistance to step into it.
So I invite you to STEP IN, and see what happens for you.
Sending love your way as you step into this, and I would LOVE it if you sent me a message once you do it💞

On the 7th day of Christmas .....I decided to take a break. Self care is very important.
Ive been learning about the Jamu lifestyle. It starts with a belief that our own happiness matters, and therefore our health and wellness matters. Next is incorporating the healthy ingredients of Jamu and positive intentions in our lives in various ways. We know the ingredients of Jamu are healthy, and now they are more accessible to all of us. Turmeric, tamarind, candlenut, rice, cinnamon – we consume Jamu ingredients for health and enjoyment more than we know today, it’s just becoming more intentional about it. #juara#juaraskincare#livewithintention#jamu#selfcare#rituals
Christmas is an opportune time to share with others the greatest news that exists, namely, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. .
You may be someone who wants to be a light to others during Christmas, but are finding yourself already getting too distracted with the peripheral stuff to be intentional in this.
Take time now to pause and think through what things are the most important (focusing on Jesus) and what things are lesser important (having your decorations perfect, etc.) during Christmas. 👉Let the Scriptures guide your thinking about priorities.👈
May your hearts desire be to enjoy Jesus and speak of His incredible worth through this season of Christmas.
Link in profile will take you to an article that will give you examples of how to tackle this in your own life and not waste your Christmas.
Knowing your self is a fully rewarding and challenging process. It takes a lifetime of pleasurable work and courage. Your desire to know who you are and what you want is the real success in life. It gives you purpose, direction and a true sense of well-being. #womanknowthyself
I have spent the last year and a half getting to know who I am, who Willo is and not the Willo on the outside but the one inside. And it all started with a life altering choice which caused a major disruption. I became a #singlemum and I decided to sell a biz which I found and poured everything into for 10 years. #lifechoices
Disruption redefines success and gives back life, this is what I have learnt. The girl I was no longer served me so I had to let go, burn bridges and seek to become the girl I saw glimpses off and it started with getting to know who I had become and what I wanted to do on the future #futureisnow
Ive learnt that when you value your self you become confident, generous, positive, vibrantly alert and alive. Your well-being comes first, inside and out. It's crucial in order for you to thrive and live the life you dream about and deserve. When you go after change, the things you most want come closer to you immediately. #whatyouseekwillfindyou 💕💕💕💕
Was I scared? HELL YES!! But what tremendous benefits I gained from change is a return of positive, good feelings, removal of anger, stress and negativity, conscious new care for my mental and physical health and renewed interest in other people, my own potential, gifts and aspirations. #iwantmore 💕💕💕💕
From my experience of transformation to you who seeks transformation believe me that the key is in self awareness and YOU DO have the powerful ability to create your own life. It's absolutely possible. As a matter of fact, your authentic self is with you right now. It waits for you. It may be covered up a bit, but with some digging and a few deep, good changes, you'll find it. It's open to connect immediately. #iknowivebeenchanged
“Motive - my ultimate belief in what defines my existence” (today’s journal) 📝🤓☯️
I shot my first Hyperlapse with my @sonyalpha a couple days ago at #thebigapple .. But relax, I’m really (not) that biga deal 😆
Enough about me.. what’s up with you⁉️
Happy Thursday! We’ve almost made it to the end of the week! Amidst the hubbub that this time of year brings (both chaotic and wonderful), it is especially important to take time for yourself and be still. I love to soak in the tub for a few moments when I can. Time slows down just for that little moment, giving me the grace to truly cherish the blessings I have been given.
Repeat after me babe; I am not here to be subtle. I am not here to play small. I am not here to live mediocre. I am not here to just live and get by. You my girl are here to shine, to play big, to live the life you dream of, to live fully, you are here to love and be loved, you are here to give your presence and gifts to others. You are a gift 💓
just got off a team call & I’m so emotional. 😭I’ve never felt this inspired. this determined. this passionate. this excited for my future🎉
I’ve set some HUGE goals for 2019. I’m excited to help so many more people crush their fitness goals and live confident & joyful lives. I’m so excited to mentor coaches to help others while building a business of their own & creating a life by design.....& to experience the freedom that my hard work will bring throughout the year as I meet my professional goals .
This business is everything. 🧡I’m excited to announce that I’m looking to mentor 10 new coaches for the start of 2019. Are you hardworking & coachable? Do you like helping others? Are you ready to be a part of a team that lifts you up, supports & encourages you? Are you ready to build the life you always dreamed? Are you ready to change your life? Application to join Team Devotion to a Dream is in my bio ⭐️
In essence SLOW FASHION is an intrinsic part of the road to sustainability and to the core principles underlying ethical fashion. It is a different understanding of art, design, process, durability, longevity and the human story encoded in the garment.

A few days ago I decided to try my hand at baking and decorating sugar cookies with a toddler. We bake before, but it was always far less complicated cookies… And half the time he only wants to eat the dough anyway. But, as Christmas approaches, I wanted to introduce him to some of my favorite traditions… And that includes decorating sugar cookies. Admittedly, they aren’t the best tasting cookies in the world (although everyone who we’ve served these to agreed that they tasted AMAZING for sugar cookies), but they are oh-so-much-fun to decorate. If you swipe right I think you’ll find that #alexanderdawgreat agreed! What’s your favorite kind of Christmas cookie to make?
You’ve seen me stumble, you’ve seen me fall, but I promise you... you’ll never see me quit! ❤️
Y’all I’m here to tell you straight up... the winter ❄️ months don’t have to TOTALLY suck the life out of you. Yes, I know it’s that time of year where it’s easier to cuddle up with a blanket and Netflix, but why not spend your time doing something that will benefit you in the long run. You can work hard on that list of goals you have and focus 🔅on the positives. • Don’t ask HOW you’ll stick with it—just do it, and know I’ll be here every step of the way.
• Don’t ask WHEN you’ll find time—just find it, and simplify your life with an amazing program like this.
• Don’t question WHY you want this—just crush it.
