Why I Share My Workouts On Social

Why I Share My Workouts On Social

There is a reason Why I Share My Workouts On Social. I enjoy sharing workouts in my Instagram and Facebook stories, not for the workout itself (though there are cool options here in LA to keep your body guessing that are definitely fun to share), but because it is ultimately all a reminder to me of living a life that is *designed* by me/by you and a reminder, too, that we CAN have everything that is important to us, even (especially) as we nurture others in your family or in business.

Having a life that aligns with what is, not only, important to you, but a nod to what makes you (your uniqueness, your gratitude, your creativity etc) come alive is what we are charged with everyday (purpose).

We get to
marshal all
our life force
for t h a t.

Everything we choose to give time to in our lives…relationships, conversations, moving our body, positive or negative thoughts on repeat in our minds, everythinggg, is our choice and, like a workout, we could say it’s either bringing us closer to balance, peace and wellness or further away from it.

Let’s connect on Facebook and Instagram, where I share more in my stories on living a life that is exclusively and joyfully designed by YOU.

Life is good.

What My Facialist Said To Me

What My Facialist Said To Me

“If something doesn’t feel right, speak up, ok?” That’s What My Facialist Said To Me before starting on the different treatments on my face.

…now I’m passing it on to you and your daughters and your cousins and your nieces and your sisters: if something doesn’t feel right, speak up, ok? 

I’m not quite sure what wouldn’t have felt “right” with such a nurturing face massage + more similar delight. I love the reminder on What My Facialist Said To Me. I also came for was this message…to send it out for whomever needs to hear it ~> continue to use your voice, because you/we don’t want to lose it 💖.

Ok?

Gratitude During Hard Times

Gratitude During Hard Times

What it means to be grateful (even/especially) during hard times.

(This photo is not “a hard time”, yet I’ve lived them, lots of them, with ridiculous amounts of joyful times, too).

What it means to be grateful or express gratitude during hard times…

Nourishing your body with wholesome foods.

Being honest/speaking honestly with loved ones about where you are (no isolation).

Taking it all slow…slower.

Much “no.”

When you think thoughts that make your head, heart or belly suffer unnecessarily, pause, realizing that since you’re the one thinking it, you can un-think it by first forgiving yourself for having had the thought…(what’s the next most fruitful or better thought, even 1% better? This is awareness in action).

Asking ~ is what I’m thinking actually true or am I speaking from a wound that has nothing to do with this experience or this person?

Moving the body to move e-motion. Or, not at all moving the body from fetal position…tears “move” the body, too.

Getting weekly therapy in nature — even slowww, meandering, walks around the block looking at every flower, bird and bee helps soothe a soul.

Getting *your* right amount of sleep.

Finding as much quiet as possible…this could be inside gentle music, prayer or meditation.

Reminding yourself over and over that this too shall pass and that no feeling is final.

Gratitude isn’t solely about thinking or verbally saying thanks for the “good” thing (or even thanks for the lessons learned inside the current challenge or “bad” thing)…

Taking care of the physical, emotional and energetic home (body) you live in that’s currently being rocked IS saying thank you.

It’s thanking YOU.

We express a form of gratitude to ourselves *every* time we calm the nervous system. It’s a gift and she’s also called self love…

Supremely welcome.

Women Defined?

Women Defined?

Since the beginning of time, women have been looked at to care for matters of the home/heart. We’ve been the hub, the gatherers and the fireplace of it and for others in so many ways. How do you see Women Defined?

As a result, it’s no surprise that, whether in a relationship or not, we define or rest our more full happiness on the home we create (or will one day create, if we’re single). On being moms and wives. Being more or less happy, maybe, if we have these people in our lives. If we’re “good” at it or if they’re “making us happy” or not…

These two down there are a downright wildly gratifying *part* of my life and joy. But I’ve told them over the years they are not in charge of my happiness. A part, however, that can be mistaken easily and quickly for the whole upon ring or bump.

Though Josh and Nolan are brilliant expressions of my nest and next adventure, my nest and next adventure rests in me (it rests in us). How do you see Women Defined?
