I was raised Catholic, and the concept of purgatory always made me uncomfortable. I like direction, answers, even if it’s not what I want to hear... so the idea of being in limbo? THAT felt like hell to me.
It’s been 25 years since I left the church, and I’m still not comfortable with limbo.
I’m sure part of it is the control freak in me (I can be honest) - I struggle with surrender because I’m not fully in trust that if I hand it over, it will be ok. It’s a bit arrogant really, when you think about it. 😂 My inner control freak is essentially thinking she can do better than God or the angels.
I’ve done a lot of work around this trust and have learned so much about myself by having the willingness to explore it. That’s a conversation for another day. 😉 But when I stumbled upon this quote (which really needs attribution so please let me know if you know who said it first), it showed me how far I’ve come. I pray more now. I talk to angels daily. I take the guidance I get from Spirit, even when it’s uncomfortable, even when it’s not what I want to do.
I’m flexing my trust muscle. It’s getting stronger. 💪
Blessed to live life on my terms in a way that’s fulfilling to me. To me, an organic lifestyle isn’t just about eating organic food and using chemical-free personal-care and household products. It’s about living life authentically. Living how you want to live, not how someone expects you to live. You are ALWAYS allowed to be the person you want to be.

It wasn't me
It wasn't him
It was us
you and me
we make magic see
we pen our very own
we make a mess
it cannot be
something we would choose
it must be something
we were tricked into
(or so we convince ourselves)
wait yes maybe
it is true
Maybe the one you loved
never really cared about you
Maybe they were using you
Yes, remember that time and this
oh wait, but maybe that was me
I did get snappy, I was cold,
oh was I the one to shut down first?
was it me who ruined everything?
no, maybe, oh wait
I’m not sure
no I’m not so sure
And slowly reality
and the movie
in our mind
such that we aren't
ever really here
and questions come
How could he
How could I
And a perfectly sweet love story
becomes a horror movie
on repeat in our psyche
So we tell ourselves
what helps us sleep
It must not have been me
There is no way
I could be responsible
for such a disaster
And so we point fingers
we shame and blame
label and diagnose
we may even try
to get even
to have the crazy
make more sense
to have the pain
This includes me
insults becoming identity
I tend to have chosen
Men who I knew
from the get go
don't like girls like me
I did my best to win over
trying desperately to craft a fantasy
that would prove me lovable
but instead had me acting
And I’m just now
really seeing this
in a way that feels
by how many others
can relate to me here
And it has me wondering
that feels so
isn't so unique to me
It has me
laying off the self loathing
and leaning into curiosity
start for me
maybe we can make
more of the magic
less of the tragedy
and help each other
In a world where we have crushing pressures, especially at work, the mistake we can make is to work continually to try to clear our desk/in trays. While this may provide a sense of satisfaction it can also feel like an 'empty win' as it can be short lived. It is important not to lose yourself in all of this. You are a real person, made of flesh and blood. Not a human 'planner' or 'machine'. Your life is not a timetable, even if it feels like one. Fight to great time to yourself. However and whatever that looks to you. It's not about the amount but the quality of the time. Have a good weekend everyone...🙏🏿❤ from @before5am - You matter, no matter what’s going on in your life or how you may be feeling. You Matter!
I know many of you have neglected your own health, happiness and wellbeing for years and are feeling lost and broken down by the daily grind of life.
I know many of you have forgotten how to look after yourself and nurture yourself while still fighting for relevance and success in your career and family life.
Today, I want you to take a moment to remember that you matter. That your happiness, your dreams and your wellbeing are important to your overall health and performance.
Self care and self love, are not a luxury you get to indulge in once in a while. But rather a way of life and very much a part of the performance equation I share with you every day.
Most of you have neglected to love yourself, to heal yourself and give yourself time to take care of your body, mind and soul. You’ve made everyone and everything else a priority in your life.
You’ve let the external world rule the internal world and because of that imbalance everything else in your life is in conflict and out of balance.
It’s time to make a shift in how you view yourself and your life. It’s time to love yourself and nurture yourself every day, so you can perform and function at a level that makes you feel alive, in control and energised.
“guard your heart from those that only love you in the shallow end; when you’re all made up, and out with friends. you were made for more than satisfying the eyes and momentary affections of those passing by. your Maker has set a glorious depth in you, filled with purpose, intentions, grace and truth. and to love you, they must love Him, far beyond the shallow end.” + morgan harper nichols @morganharpernichols
The Focus and Clarity challenge starts tomorrow (cue happy dance!!!) .
It may seem like stopping to make your mission statement isn't as important as all the piles of client work and backorders you have right now... but if you don't have one you can't afford to keep going at a break-necking pace.
Without knowing your why (your mission) you'll burnout.
You'll finally reach your goals and then realize you're not satisfied because it doesn't fulfill you.
Not to be dramatic, but it's really important.
It just takes 30 minutes to think about your mission and get it down on paper and then you'll be on your way to:
• Saying no (that will free up time)
• Pursuing what matters (that will move you forward)
• Waiting on some things (that will give you something to look forward to)
• Streamlining or hiring (that will free up work and time)
• Planning your hours
• Visually seeing your priorities
• Putting your CEO pants
It can go even faster if you have someone there to help you craft it. So, for this month's challenge I'm making the group workshops and the Mission Statement Kit part of the free trial. (surprise face) YES I KNOW RIGHT!?!
You can totally start your free trial in the link in the bio. .
Do you have a mission statement? .

How can it be a week!? Miss you ladies ❤️
Tag your friends who are always 📸 👇🏼
My brain literally never shuts off. .
Do you relate? .
I don't have full days off. .
I am an over thinker. .
And as much as I've tried, I've never been someone that just drifts through life. My mind is always in control.
I’m envious of people who can turn it all off and meditate for hours! .
Heck I can't even do yoga (trust me! I wish I could.) .
But does this mean I’m constantly “hustling?” .
Hell no! I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to hustle and working hard. .
I love my clients, my partner, my daughter, and my community. I’d do anything to make sure everyone around me was happy. .
But I have a confession to make 🤦♀️ .
I VERY rarely stop to think about me and my own needs. .
I'm an introvert, which means I really need time to be by myself and refill my cup.
To reenergize—so I can be my best for you, my clients, and my family. .
I’ve spent way too long making the mistake of thinking my mindset practice is enough 🤦♀️ .
It's not!!!!!!! .
You need time just “being.” .
When you take the time for you to just be you and not think about anything else.... . ✔You will become creative ✔More motivated (inspired) ✔More high vibe ✔More open to allowing and receiving ✔Not to mention all areas of your life will improve (money, business, relationship) .
So share with me:
How often do you take days off? How often do you stop and do something just for you?

Ви часто заходите в інстаграм в неділю?
Для мене всі дні однакові, що понеділок, що субота...але чомусь в неділю от прямо хочеться відпочити та нічого не робити. Відпочити від соціальних мереж, від інформації. Не завжди, звісно, виходить це на 100%, але все ж таки😁
А як у вас? Відкладаєте телефон по вихідних?
