I remember the day this picture was taken back in April 2017. I was so giddy inside with the thought of what I was about to do. I had finished cleaning out my desk after 9 years at my corporate career. Days after this I would leave that career and never, ever look back! •
Today, I enjoyed coffee with a former colleague who immediately said when she saw me that I looked AMAZING (well thanks to premium skincare that’s a fact 😉) but she meant more in terms of ME...my attitude, my relaxed post barre #lululemon attire, my overall energy. During our chat she shared how inspired I made her feel as she’s in her own transition of finding her passion to help others. •
The world is changing. Stability in the corporate-career setting is a thing of the past. Not having a Plan B these days is considered playing with fire...and for many YOU ARE PLAYING WITH FIRE. I did not start a business because I had time, I started one on my terms because I was SMART and I desired control of my future. The question is, are you working harder for someone else? Or are you ready to work hard for yourself?
Hoy tuvimos un día difícil, uno de esos que no paras de llorar, que te cuesta dormir, comer, y soltarte de los brazos de mamá, un día en lo que te replanteas todo, que estoy haciendo mal, porque esto me pasa a mi y por supuesto te sentís la peor madre del mundo, esa madre que es incapaz de consolarte. Pero después de horas de llanto te dormís en mi pecho y en ese instante el mundo podría derrumbarse que solo estamos vos y yo lo demás es cotillón.
Pero ademas de eso, me llegan estas fotos y simplemente muero de Amor 💕 por este hombrecito y todo vale la pena.
It is such a big phrase right now. I just listened @jeffersonbethke and @alyssajoybethke talk about it in their podcast The Real Life. It was wonderful to hear about self care from a biblical perspective and realize that self care does not have to equal consumerism.
What do you do for self care?
My ultimate goal is to make you feel comfortable in your own skin.
I used to be so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I mean literally sick and tired, and also grimacing at how far I had let myself go. My physical and mental health was terrible, and I wasn't sure how to make it a priority. I was lost and dumbfounded as to why the things that worked before were not working as a new postpartum mom.
I gave up on me. I used my kids as an excuse as to why I wasn't going to the gym or going to meetings. Then I found an at home alternative that changed my life and my family's life.
Now, my comfort zone, or you can say my goal as a mom of 2 littles, is to be the healthiest I can be for myself. I now make myself a priority, or I can't show up for my kids and my husband as the best version of myself.
So when I say that my ultimate goal as a coach is to make you feel comfortable in your skin, I mean strive for what feels right for you! ❤️If workouts give you an opportunity to have some mental clarity and destress, then reach out and let's do this.
❤️If you need to cut out all the processed foods because you feel tired and sluggish all the time, then reach out and let's do this.
❤️If dropping 35 lbs will allow you to easily chase your kids through the yard, then reach out and let's do this!
❤️If sharing your journey holds you accountable and you want to learn more about coaching too, then reach out and let's do this!
Drop a ❤️ and we can chat to see if this solution is right for you and your family.
BELIEF. It’s having trust, faith or confidence in something or someone. And for many it can be a game changer in the path they walk in life. Think about it...what happens if your family didn’t believe in you? Do you think you’d believe in yourself? Consider growing up in that feeling...it literally gives me a lump in my throat.
Remember your teen years...I’m sure they were filled with emotions, up and down relationships and personally for me those years were H.A.R.D. I lacked self-confidence, got involved with drugs and alcohol and my path upon graduation was unknown. At the age of 19 I remember thinking I was such a failure. I had ZERO belief in myself. •
I often reflect on when the intersection in my life occurred. When did that re-route happen? For years I didn’t know what shifted but through reflection and building my faith, I now get it...it all goes back to BELIEF. And it wasn’t ME believing in myself, it was the OPPOSITE...it was others BELIEVING IN ME 🙌🏻
Today I was invited to understand the mission of First Glance. An organization located in Kenmore, OH that supports its urban teen community with programs centered around emotional, physical and spiritual support. This safe haven enables relationships to be built creating a family-like culture of building belief in the teens themselves. With their faith based foundation, volunteers lean in to give a sense of love, acceptance and belonging.
And it reminded me what the POWER of belief can do and more importantly what that gift CAN DO for others. I encourage you, wherever you are, near or far (if you’re near check out First Glance 😉) but find a mission that allows you to cast your belief bubble onto someone else. You may be giving them the best commodity ever ❤️
As Kat Cole would say, “Honor your roots, but don’t let them be your anchor.” •
