Take some time for yourself today, easier said than done I know! Appreciate all that you are doing and all that you want to do. Self care, self appreciation and self love will allow you to keep transforming and attracting everything you want. Remember, the UNIverse is on your side. Keeping setting your intentions and focussing on what you want to create. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Happy MLK day. xo
Choose the people you spend your time with wisely. The six people you spend the most time with will influence you the greatest. We are products of our environment, so when trying to inflict change its best to remember that it is only natural to be influenced by those you see, speak to and spend time with. It is so easy to get caught up with everyone else, remember to do the things you love. Stay TRUE to YOU! xo
Rooted in staying true to YOU!
When you are feeling low, direct your energy into something that makes you feel good. For me one of those things is cooking. Since I had brazil nuts on hand and love nut butter, I made brazil nut butter.
Here’s how: Bake (dehydrate) the brazil nuts for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees with a little coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, and cardamon. Then blend in the Vitamix and add a bit of cream/coconut oil/spices to get my delicious rendition of brazil nut butter.
Deeply rooted in love..
Being kind to someone else is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. Stop focussing so hard on your life – what’s working, what’s not working, why its not enough, what else you should be doing. Instead try focussing more on those around you. Believe me, this shift in energy will help someone else and in turn will make you feel better all around. Shifting your energy to someone else – your lover, your friend, a co-worker, a stranger – gives you much greater perspective on your own life. Give it a try. Get out of your bubble and think differently. xo
How does this change in focus make you feel? Did anything in your life change?
Rooted in new perspective.
When was the last time you checked in with yourself? And I mean really checked in with yourself? Let yourself process, evaluate where you are, and where you want to be?
I overheard a fitness model in the gym locker room yesterday discussing how stressful her fitness modeling career was. She was right out of college, spending oodles of time training and dieting, focussing so hard on this career, and yet she sounded so miserable. Although she loved being on stage, she felt judged (obviously) and defeated if she didn’t place highly. As she was venting about how hard it was emotionally and physically, I kept thinking, “what is she doing this for?” Although this is not where my interest lies, it didn’t sound as though the pleasure or pay-off was worth the agony and pain it caused her. Regardless of what you are spending your time and energy on, ask yourself: Is this something that is of value to me?
Check in from time to time and see if where you are spending your time is truly valuable to you – emotionally, mentally, physically, financially, spiritually etc? What is the benefit? On the flip side, don’t be too hard on yourself. Remember, you can only accomplish so much at a given time. Keep a list of where you want to be putting your time: Now, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, Bucket List. This can help organize your thoughts, and keep things moving clearly and freely..xo
Are you living the story you want to tell?
GET ROOTED on the inside.
Happy Friday! I am enjoying a cappuccino and a cookie, because its plain and simply delicious. I am a big proponent of ‘everything in moderation’ and that includes these two of my favorite things.
I hope everyone has some time for themselves this weekend, as it is oh so necessary. Even something as simple as reading and cappuccino drinking are so beneficial to ones state of mind. You can’t be much help to those around you if you fail to take care of the most important being, and that being is you!
What will you do for yourself?
Rooted in cappuccinos and cookies xo
Anytime you get knocked down remember it’s happening for a reason, you just have to get back up. Remember not to make assumptions or to take things personally. You are never alone. Use this experience to your advantage as a new beginning. Re-set, Re-align, and Re-start your mind, body, and spirit. Ready, Set, Go!
We can’t always understand why something is happening to us. Sometimes your best bet is to feel your way through, accept the pain or discomfort, and know that in time all will become more clear. Don’t make assumptions and don’t take everything personally. The UNIverse is providing you with what you need to become the person you are destined to be. Be patient. Be kind to yourself.
Remember, a failure is not really a ‘failure’, its just an experience that brings you closer to what you really want..
