Life By Storm

This is the Kailee that's been dealing with one thing after another for the last week and a half.

This is the Kailee that's been crying multiple times a day since last Monday.

This is the Kailee that feels kinda, sorta broken and lost and defeated.

God I hear you, I hear you.

Between stress and heart ache, I'm shot. I am literally emotionally and spiritually drained to the point I'm starting to get physically drained.

Between my fiance's grandma in the hospital for a night, my grandpa falling, my mom falling and very badly spraining her ankle, drama with my dad, getting my hair literally ripped out of my scalp in handfuls by a little boy I nanny for because he was angry, and this morning my grandparents unexpectedly having to put down their fur baby. Oh, all while going full force with this new project that'll be announced soon.

I'm shot. And I can't take any more. God, I can't be SuperWoman. Why do I take on the weight of the world?

Friends, I'm not asking for sympathy or "I'm sorry" or anything else. I'm sharing all of this because I want you to know that my life is messy too. I want you to know that I struggle too. I want you to know that I'm here for you along this ride.

The hardest lessons God has been gracefully yet messily teaching me is that I'm not SuperWoman, to surrender it all to Him, and to allow the beautiful people He has placed in my life to be a loving friend for me.

God I hear you, I hear you.

The biggest things that He is placing on my heart that I'm humbly working on is while all of this to focus on spending time with Him, to focus on taking care of myself, to transparently share this journey with you, and to get fully involved with my church again.

So are you going through a tough time right now? Do you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders?

My darling, dearest friend- You are not SuperWoman and that is ok. It's in our darkest moments of weakness that we look down and realize that God is carrying us through these storms. It's in these moments of tears that God stills our minds so He can whisper His loving whisper to us. It's in these moments that He pulls our hearts back to Him and His Plan.

A New Season Is Here

Fall is such a beautiful time of year. Not only is the physical seasons changing, but so are we. And it's good!

One thing I've learned to enjoy is change. I've learned to accept it with open arms because let's face it, change is inevitable and we are always evolving, growing, changing. 

Last week, Carlton and I went on vacation and it was so peaceful. I cried several times soaking in the beauty and peace around me. It was so surreal. 

The most beautiful and important piece lately is the reflection and quiet listening to God's whispering voice. This is quite the journey I have been on lately. 

I kept putting it off and putting it off while getting frustrated with myself that I couldn't bring myself to post anything let alone be on social media. I was annoyed with everything. That's because I got away from who I am, from what God has Called me to do and away from who I'm supposed to help and guide in this life. Nothing could put a fire back in me, nothing could light me up even if I fully understood it, it just wasnt clicking. 

Change is good because it means you no longer associate yourself with those who no longer are serving you energetically. It means you let go of the person you thought you were as you evolve higher and beautifully in God's Love. It means you dont do things (jobs, activities, goals, etc) that no longer feels right. 

It means you finally let go of all the voices telling you that you can't and listen to God's quiet whisper telling you that you can. 

 "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. ~Psalm 139:14 NIV"

Let me tell you, God is certainly giving me a good kick in the booty lately. It's good though.

I've been more emotional as I continue to listen to His quiet whispers encouraging me to be fully open to those around me and to share my journey more openly while sharing my journey with God to help others get closer to Him.

I've been afraid in accepting the change going on in my life of fully letting go of absolutely everything that no longer serves me.

And I've been having such a hard time in opening myself up because I've been trying to do everything on my own.

Yes, I broke. I'm not SuperWoman.

Yes, I cried many times while on vacation with my fiance because I was so overwhelmed by the immense beauty and peace.

Yes, I'm embracing change with open arms.

Yes, I'm opening my heart up to beautiful friendships and relationships with all of you.

Because at the end of the day, my validation is in God and it's not about me. It's about being fully present and open to those who need me, including you.

I love you all and cheers to being on this journey together!

Face Your Fears

Vulnerable post ahead


*gulp*


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.


*gulp*


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.

What to do when it feels like the world is against you

What to do when it feels like the world is against you

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?

I Am Not Religious

I Am Not Religious

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.

Break The Damn Rules

Break The Damn Rules

Society has taught us to conform to the rules. Society has conditioned us to be like everyone else, to not stand out from the crowd and to be extremely hard on ourselves. We're supposed to be in a certain profession. We're supposed to get that degree or certification to be qualified enough. We're supposed to act a certain way, to talk a certain way, to dress a certain way. We're supposed to be so much and hold up to people's expectations. We're supposed to make everyone happy at all times that it's selfish to do what's right for us.

Trials Into Triumphs

Trials Into Triumphs

You will face trials and triumphs, especially as a woman in faith and as you grow as a person. There is purpose in all of this pain. There is hope. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It's a matter of surrounding yourself with people who will support you, who will be there for you, raising your vibrations to be energetically unavailable for the crap that tries to take you down, and most importantly surrendering it all to Him.

Be Authentic, Darling

Let's talk Authenticity for a moment.

As a coach - a Holistic Lifestylist & Spiritual Life Coach - I've come across a few unauthentic people within the past few years of doing what I do... The copy cats. Oh yes. Like I'm talking people have copied me, word for word. They've copied my work, my words, my language. Right down to my 'About' page on my website.

And with this, with the copy cats, comes people attempting to one-up me.

And did that used to annoy the sh*t out of me. (Guilty)

BUT....

I've learned that people who are truly authentic, truly themselves (unapologetically and uniquely themselves), those are the people who do amazing things and are pretty amazing people. Why? Because they're raw. Because they accept who they are. Because they love who they are. Because they get vulnerable. Because they are unapologetic about who they are.

I've learned that the people who are not authentically themselves, they copy. THEN, they try and try and try to compete. They try to one-up, trying to stand out the most in a conversation. AND people can see right through them. Because they either don't seem genuine or they simply seem silly.

Listen, I stand in my truth. I know who I am. I know what I bring to the table. And I don't have time to compete or one-up anyone. I literally don't have time for that. I honestly hope we all make it. I hope everyone I meet becomes successful in their own way, on their own terms of what success means to them.

So, the message? Accept who you are. Love who you are. Be unapologetically YOU. Because no one else is you. You are unique because God created only ONE of you!

Reflection on 2017

As I sit here reflecting, 2017 has really pushed me way out my comfort zone. Like, every area of my life.

I've shed tears, I've had many laughs, met amazing people, made amazing memories with those by my side, accepted amazing opportunities, and it's all been guided by God and Spirit.

I walked across the Marist College stage in May. I've continued to build a soulful business helping women in every corner of the world. I did something wild & brave, yet so Divinely Guided to do so in October, which was the most beautiful blessing I could have ever given or received. I had forgiven and healed my past, let me just mention the immense peace and freedom that came with this action. I felt like my life was falling apart and I was breaking in November. I'm currently launching radical life transforming programs and a membership this month in December plus going even bigger in 2018. I've joined a Bible Study and a Prayer Group. I had an intense healing session that simply confirmed my utmost Divine Calling in this life. Most importantly, I've stepped fully and fearlessly into my purpose as a coach, a teacher, a healer, a friend.

As I think about this all, no matter the hardships and challenges I've faced, the choices I made, the blessings I brought to people, there was purpose in it all. The strength that I'm filled with, the love that I'm filled with, the hope that I'm filled with, the peace that I'm filled with, and the Spirit that I'm filled with guides me to bring that to every person I meet.

Always look for the blessing in every situation. Always choose to see love. ❤
