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.

LADIES, DO YOU FEEL THE PRESSURE?

Somedays I really wonder how women go through their entire lives with the pressures of society constantly on them. Today I was chatting with an older women who was absolutely radiant. She looked happy as could be and was truly glowing. Yet the first words out of her mouth, to my surprise were “what ever you do don’t get old” - and let me just say I CAN NOT count the amount of times I hear this statement in a week. Mind you, I do live in a ‘retirement community’ (most likely because I am an old soul and I fit in here) but it still shocks me the amount of people who make growing old and even retirement sound DAUNTING.

Summer Solstice

What a week! My vibration was ridiculously high this week which was no coincidence considering SUMMER SOLSTICE was on Wednesday! For those of you who don’t know the summer solstice is the longest day of the year (meaning the sun is up in the sky longer than any other day of the year). It is the first official day of summer and it is a time to celebrate the light of consciousness. It is a time to reflect upon the potential for consciousness to awaken both in ourselves and within everyone else!

Lessons From The City Of Love

A lot of people have been asking why I haven’t blogged about my time in Paris and quite honestly I think there is so much to talk about that I don’t even know where to begin! It was an incredibly eye opening trip. Most people go on vacations to get away,  I however, go to learn.  On this trip in particular, I learned so much more than I was ever expecting.

Big Magic

This is one of those books you constantly see popping up on Instagram. You probably noticed it a few times simply because it has a wicked cover. I don’t care what they say, I always judge a book by its cover! This book caught my eye and I am so thankful that it did. Elizabeth Gilbert truly changed my perspective on creativity and my current living situation (you know, working for someone else while living with a burning desire to be an entrepreneur).

Green Goddess Smoothie

Today I just wanted to share with you one of my FAVOURITE go-to smoothie recipes, I call it The Green Goddess. The reason I love smoothies is because they are FAST, CONVENIENT FOR ON THE GO when you are running late, and they are jam packed with essential nutrients!

Ring The Alarm; ALLERGY ALERT!

If you’ve been following me along my journey of coming off the pill, you know from my last post that it has been far from sunshine and rainbows. It has actually been quite difficult emotionally and physically. But as always in life.. there comes a twist.. 

5 Months In…

It’s half way through May.. where has the time gone?! I don’t know about you, but these past 5 months have been hectic for me. Two jobs, finishing up my last semester of school and starting my own business has kept me busy to say the least! I feel as though I was on an emotional roller coaster and I have finally gotten off the ride.
