Cottage Gives Me All The Feels

Spending the weekend at the lake had me full of mixed emotions. Something about water always makes me feel calm and at peace.

Yet As I laid on the dock, I began reminiscing of all the weekends spent here over the past decade. Remembering the ones who have come and gone in our lives and shared this special place with us.

Think With Your Heart

“You’re crazy. You haven’t thought this through. Don’t make any drastic decisions. Sleep on it a bit. How could you do that? It’s so irresponsible.” These are just a few of the statements I heard on a regular basis. I think with my heart and I listen to my gut. To some, this may be […]

2017 Reflection – What a year! :)

As I sit in my new home staring out the window at the fresh falling snow as it covers the naked trees, I can’t help but smile. How did I get here? To say 2017 flew by is an understatement. I honestly have no idea where the time went! Do you?! Today, I sat down […]

Australia, I Am Truly Disappointed In You. Get Your Shit Together.

Why was Australia so great? This is a question I get asked all the time after raving about my golden years living down under. However, as time has passed I felt as though I lost the answer to this question. I’d usually shrug it off and just say something like “it’s just the best, I’d […]

Gold Coast, We Meet Again.

As I sit on the beach listening to the waves crash I find myself people watching and reminiscing. Being here five years later is a bit of an emotional roller-coaster. One I know I needed to ride in order to move forward in my life. One minute I feel a sense of joy and calmness […]

Emotions I Wasn’t Expecting While Traveling Vietnam

I thought I was leaving for this trip to escape the 9-5 grind and be schedule free. However, that has yet to happen. Today is the first day which I can say I woke up refreshed after a full night’s sleep, with no alarm at 8 am and spent my morning how I wanted to spend it. Meditating, walking along the beach and really just taking in the last few weeks of chaos and reflecting on what I’ve learned. 

NOTE TO SELF: Importance of Self Care

In order for something to grow, you must nourish it. You feed your children, you feed your pets, and you feed yourself. If you want to learn a skill you must show up everyday and work on that skill. Nourish it until it grows.

If there is one thing that I have learned while being a health coach, it is that we must nourish OURSELVES as we nourish our business and every other aspect of our lives. Sometimes you can get so wrapped up in all the creativity, learning and excitement of running a business that you forget to take care of yourself.
