You're tired of feeling sluggish every single day. You're tired of feeling drained. You want to lose weight (or even gain weight). You feel like you lack any sort of ambition. You feel broken. You feel But you're stuck. You may not even know where to begin. You want to feel energized and you want to be filling your body with good food, good faith, and moving your body.Read More
If you've never experience the true power of prayer, let me tell you it's beautiful.
When I sit in prayer, I feel this energy surging through my body and I know the Holy Spirit is with me, listening to me, talking to me, and healing me.
Ok, setting your goals and creating your vision board(s) are one part of essentially setting your intentions, but it's time we go deeper.
Goals are great, vision boards are great, but are you truly talking to God and listening to where He wants you in life?
When it comes to living a healthy life, we focus on "I have to lose x amount of weight", "I have to look like that Instagram model in that bikini", "I have to be on this new fad diet and exercise x amount of hours per day", and "cut my calories down to 500 per day" in order to look good, look healthy, etc.Read More
Welcome to Day 1- Finding Joy Through Chaos!
Looking for joy amidst the chaos of life can be so challenging. I get it because I've been in your shoes.
Theres so many times where it feels like the world is against you and everything is just falling apart.
A silly example but a good one is that you're outside having things to do (in my case an outdoor concert to attend) and it starts downpour raining. It sets your mood off because now you're cold and wet and have things to do. You attempt to use an umbrella, but that simply does not work.
Let me ask you something. When was the last time you danced in the rain? The physical rain? Like laughing and dancing in the rain? Probably years or at least not since your were a child.
It's simply a mindset shift. Allow yourself to have fun and to laugh even in the silliest of things.
Now an even bigger example. Everything and everyone seem to be against you. You're coffee spills all over you, you get stuck behind someone driving at a snail's pace and you're late for work, your car needs over $1,000 worth of work done on it, your phone craps out, people are judging and coming at you from every direction, parents are in the hospital, etc. Yep, been there done that.
This takes a little bit more than just a shift in your mindset. It's taking time for yourself, distancing yourself from those whose energy just drains you, and tons of fierce prayer.
Getting stuck behind someone and getting to work late? Yeah, that's God protecting you.
You're coffee spills on you? Just breathe and slow down.
Car breaks down and your phone craps out? Yes, it sucks (so totally have been there) and feels like it's the worst possible timing ever. But everything always works out for the better. Even if you have no idea how you'll pay to get your car fixed or pay to get a new phone, God always sends you blessings at the most unexpected moment whether you end up getting a raise or bonus at work, a family member offers to pay it for you, or some other expected way. Hold the faith that no matter what, it'll work out.
Parents in the hospital? I cannot stress the importance and power of prayer. For instance, prayer is so powerful that my dad went from a 5% chance of survival to fully ok. My mom had a spell and because of prayer, she is ok also.
People judging you and coming at you from every direction? Thank them for their opinion and feedback, distance yourself from them, and now go live life to the fullest. With people holding you down and holding you back, you wont get far. It's time to let them go.
Prayer, setting your intentions, surrounding yourself with people who understand you and support you, and slowing down to take more time to dance in the rain (physically and metaphorically) will put a smile on your face and a fire in your heart so big that absolutely nothing or no one can ever stop you or slow you down.
So go dance in the rain and live your life!

Vulnerable post ahead
Time for me to be honest with you...
Every time I share a glimpse of my life, my stomach does flips and my inner mean girl yells at me to not do it. Including this moment as I'm writing this.
Why am I so afraid of being vulnerable? (Including in person and online, to the point it's been affecting my business)
I'm terrified of being hurt.
I'm terrified of being judged.
I'm terrified of being thought less of.
I'm terrified of starting problems and confrontation.
But most importantly, I'm terrified of being hurt.
I've dealt with hurt, with pain, with sadness. I've felt betrayed by friends, by family, by people I loved. It sucks. Period, end of story, it sucks.
Plus, I've dealt with people who got triggered by things I've posted and blogged about. And it makes me sick to my stomach because I hate confrontation so much.
My inner mean girl has led me to go into hiding.
And it pisses me off that I've allowed myself to basically stay away from creating beautiful friendships, from investing in myself, and just freaking out about everything.
Note to my inner mean girl- I love you, but no more running my life.
AND Satan- GET BEHIND ME...
I've held back so much. And that's not me. You haven't been able to see me, the real me, all of me.
I've been afraid that people will judge me and think less of me because my life is messy, it's far from perfect (including my health journey and my spiritual journey). Because if I'm being honest, I've been struggling lately with my wellness and well, life.
So here it goes...
From here on out, I promise myself and you to show you all of me. To show you everything that is happening in my life, the ups, the downs, the messy, the ins and the outs. I promise to be fully present, to fully give all of myself to those who need me, to fully love and accept myself for where I am, and to fully love and accept you for where you are.
What are you terrified of? What do you promise to commit to in order to get out of your own way?
So there we have it.
Sure, playing it safe may be nice and all, but I ask myself "is it worth it?"
Sure the nice job, the fancy company car, the money that comes with the job may be nice and safe, but then again is it really worth it?Read More
There's a few things that I've learned so far in life. It doesn't matter what other people think about you, it doesn't matter if you don't think you're not good at something, and your age doesn't matter. There's different beliefs and lifestyles we hold and live. That is not for anyone else, except for ourselves alone.Read More
First things first. I want to tell you and remind you that absolutely nothing and no one is against you. This is God and the Universe challenging you to step up to the plate to get out of your comfort zone. Everything is happening for a reason, I always believe it's for your highest good even amidst the chaotic moments. He is pushing you to do the things you've never done in order to get to where you and He want you to be. So my first question for you is are you ready?Read More
One thing that has been coming up a lot lately, especially now with the new Mornings With Jesus series is that I am religious. Because in society, having some sort of faith always deems us as religious. Knowing that God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit exist always deems us as religious. Heck, even simply talking about God deems us as religious.Read More
I've been thinking and I'm really excited to officially announce this! As I was spending time with God and reading my Bible this morning, something hit me and I knew I needed to make this happen!
I'm officially creating a new blog/email series! Keep reading!Read More
Today, I'm sharing my greatest tips and tricks on how to be a savvy woman! I love shopping. I also love to save money when I can. I'll sometimes (ok, most times) go for the clearance rack at Target or Kohl's, or even at New York & Company. Well shopping online has become a favorable thing to do, especially in society today. Why? Because it's easy in our busy lives.Read More
