A week of Sacred Bliss. Literally. In all ways. The Mexican sun on my face, the Caribbean water on my body, the emotional and physical dance of being in the celebration of a circle of incredible women.... and the Devine timing of it all!!!⠀ ⠀ My hope for each of you today is that you take a moment and bring bliss into your body - breathe it in and let it fill you.... it’s right there, always. And it’s yummy.⠀ ⠀ Your soul is calling for it, I promise.⠀ ⠀ ❤️🦋🙏🏼☀️🌎 @boldlyembodylife @kristapettyraimer #joyfulcourage #sacredbliss #tulum #amansalatulum #soulcare #tribe

I am so humbled and proud.⠀ ⠀ The whole thing has been a ride full of vulnerability and worthiness conversation. Just embracing the idea that I am someone with the gumption to believe that readers would WANT to read what I have to say is HUGE.⠀ ⠀ And now, it’s out there for you.⠀ ⠀ So yeah, I’m kind of a big deal. I’m going to own that. I’ve created something with value and I am confident you will feel seen, heard and supported when you read it.⠀ ⠀ Love you!!

I woke up like this. Really, I did, like two hours ago.⠀ ⠀ I just caught sight of myself and thought “I wonder if I can pull off this hair for the rest of the day???”⠀ ⠀ Quickly I think, “yeah, no.” And I had a little chuckle at myself.⠀ ⠀ I’m so glad that I can crack myself up. There are so many things to worry about right now, I mean, I have two teens and a business and, just, LOTS going on. ⠀ ⠀ Without humor, I’m screwed.⠀ ⠀ Letting go of how my hair looks is the tip of the iceberg, right?⠀ ⠀ What about you? Where are you noticing you could let go? How does your hair look right now??⠀ ⠀ 😂❤️🤣💕😘 #joyfulcourage #keepingitreal
So I just went downstairs to thank my daughter for all of the things that she has taught me, all the ways she has invited me to grow. ⠀ ⠀ Because of who she is, and who I am, there are other parents in the world that feel seen and heard. Every time I work with a client and say, “I get it,” I mean it. And that, my friends, is a gift. ⠀ ⠀ This parenting journey is tough. It is full of love and laughs, and tears and worries. It is so easy to feel as though we are getting it all wrong, or that everyone else seems to have the secret sauce for making things look so easy and positive all the time. ⠀ ⠀ Here is what I find, WE ARE ALL STRUGGLING. We are all questioning, catastraphizing, and wanting to control what our teens are going through. We love them that much!!! ⠀ ⠀ AND, there is a huge gift in letting go, in handing the energetic ball of responsibility over to them, WHILE SENDING THE MESSAGE that we know they can handle it, and that we aren’t leaving their side. It’s messy, and exhausting. But you aren’t alone. I’ve got you, and I get it. ⠀ ⠀ If you are reading this and with me, will you double tap this post and comment with a “hell yeah!”??? ⠀ ⠀ It is so important to spread the message that WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER. ⠀ ⠀ And if you are thinking that NOW is the time for support with your teens - I have an AMAZING opportunity for you!!

Oh man. Keeping it R-E-A-L this week in the podcast, as usual...⠀ ⠀ My guest is Bonnie J. Rough, author of Beyond the Birds and Bees - and yes, our conversation DOES go beyond the birds and bees!!⠀ ⠀ As you listen, you will be challeneged to really consider what you want most for your children and their sexual development - and perhaps acknowledge thoughts/beliefs/ideas that YOU have held that may actually be stunting their growth.⠀ ⠀ I know, I know. I promise you - IT’S SO GOOD!! Bonnie keeps it real and there are a lot of laughs here.⠀ ⠀ Use the link in my bio to listen, or if you subscribe, the show is already on your device.⠀ ⠀ ❤️🐝⠀ ⠀ #joyfulcourage #joyfulcouragepodcast #positivediscipline #parenting #parentingpodcast #podcasting #birdsandbees #beyondbirdsandbees
Yes yes yes - IF YOU SAY SO isn’t enough! Being intentional requires that we take ACTION towards the life we want, that we create a PRACTICE that brings us back to our core truths and values time and time again.⠀ ⠀ And this work is for us all. There are no pre-requisites to living the life you want - it is all about how you BE in the life that is happening for you IN THIS MOMENT.⠀ ⠀ What are some of the ways you are living intentionally today??⠀ ⠀ #joyfulcourage #parenting #livewithintention #positivediscipline #author #practice
Recording the audio version of my book this weekend in the closet!! 🤣🤣 it is the best sound studio in my house...⠀ ⠀ Man, this book is really happening, you all - I have been passing it around for reviews getting ready for presale and the word is that it’s GOOD! YAYYYYY!!⠀ ⠀ I didn’t realize how exposed I would feel putting something like this out there - I mean, I pretty much pour it out every week on the podcast, but this book.... it feels different.⠀ ⠀ Can’t wait for YOU to get your hands on it!!!⠀ ⠀ Presale April 10th - LAUNCHING May 20th!!! Locals - stay tuned for launch party DEETS!!!⠀ ⠀ Big love and gratitude for all the support 😘😘⠀ ⠀ #joyfulcourage #parenting #positivediscipline #booklaunch #author ⠀ ⠀
**NEW SHOW**⠀ ⠀ This one is getting LOTS of listens - why?? Maybe because I invite my two teens on to have a REAL conversation about phones, social media and setting limits and boundaries.⠀ ⠀ AND IT WAS SO FUN!⠀ ⠀ Listen in to hear the lightness and humor that can exist in parenting when relationship is there ❤️⠀ ⠀ I know you’ll love it - ⠀ Link is in the bio.⠀ ⠀ #joyfulcourage #joyfulcouragepodcast #positivediscipline #parenting #parentingpodcast #podcasting #teens #screens ⠀
Did something new to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. Was inspired by a post I saw on FB to do notes each day of February leading up to the big day.⠀ ⠀ I was inspired!!⠀ ⠀ My husband has been gone since January 2nd, working on the power grid in Northern California. We are grateful for his work ethic and the opportunity to arrive in a financial place to make a significant change for our family.⠀ ⠀ AND, we miss daddy. ⠀ ⠀ He’s one of those dads that really shows up. He is engaging with the kids, committed to being in solid relationship, while also a FIERCE house-spouse. ⠀ ⠀ We are good over here, and things feel off without him.⠀ ⠀ I’m not the best at holiday tradition. I’m pretty casual.... but I’m feeling a pull to make this year something special. To make up for what I know we are all missing.⠀ ⠀ So it’s Valentines each day on their doors. It’s some sweet treats in the morning. It’s the underlying message of “I want to make today special for you because I can.”⠀ ⠀ What kinda of fun traditions do you do, or are you beginning with you fam for Valentines Day?⠀ ⠀ ❤️❤️❤️ #joyfulcourage #parenting #lovemykids #valentinesday2019 #valentineslove #lovenotes #missingdaddy
