Be Floored by a Ted Talk 

Creating and playing using words is my love.  

It soothes my soul and brings me great strength in moments that I feel weak.  

Today, I watched this Ted Talk TWICE and his stories, experiences and words on rejection brought me strength as I reflected on my stories, experiences, and my words. 

May this bring you as much freedom as it brought into my day! 

Jia Jiang – What I Learned From 100 Days of Rejection

Be Giving a Gift of Being 

I am in constant flux everyday moving from being a human doing, doing, doing while try to be an awake, present human being. 

  
As I have been journeying through this ‘beingness’, I have pondered and sat, ran and rambled and create a free gift to add value to those that want to wander and wonder as a human being.  

I have created a sixty day set of emails and videos that will be sent randomly throughout the time to your inbox.  Some wonderings may surprise you, others will make you smile and chuckle, but my hope is that as a collective group of likeminded people we will live through sixty days as present, awake human beings.

I wonder as I wander…. 60 days together! 

Be Rich! $$$

What would it mean to you to be rich?

Could it be possible for you?

I knew it was possible for me but I didn’t ‘know’ how.

Until now…

Rich can mean having a great deal of wealth or assets. It can also mean being plentiful or abundant.

I have finally figured out that I am rich!  Yup, ME!

⭐️ I have space in my life to create the days I desire.

⭐️ I am privilege to look into the eyes of these beautiful souls on a daily basis and to witness my children’s childhood.


⭐️ I am present with intuitive friends like Ned, Isa, Ang and Mich and talk about healing, dreams or life.

⭐️ I watch our four year old love up his dog while Summer lies in the snow.


⭐️ I smile at people as we walk by each other, sharing time and space.

⭐️ I talk about water, sleep, protein, minerals and poo with people.  (Ah the richness of health!)

* I believe money is a river that flows as we help others around us.

⭐️ We are able to create a suite in our backyard to invite new people into our lives.


My eyes are opened up to how rich or abundant my life is.  I just didn’t see it before.  I lack nothing.

I lack NOTHING!

I have more than enough.

I live in abundance.

I am enough.

With great richness surrounding me everyday.

Look, what riches do you see around you?

Be Creating a Full Time Family 

A family where we can choose to spend most of our time together. 

A family where the children have equal time with both parents. 

A family that can be full time living life together and part time at work. 

My personal definition of a full time family. 

  
A place where we choose our schedule and money is of no consequence.  (What is money anyways, but a concept of trading money for time.) We are working very hard, every day to create residual, freedom income.  Sexy Neck is working with a contractor to create a rental home on our property. I have launched a book into the world and I love coaching people using nutritional systems I love.  The company gives me rebates for supporting and loving people to reach their individual energy, performance, weight loss, healthy aging or even financial goals. 

My dreams continue to become reality as Sexy Neck and I walked our boys to school together today.  As he is an educator with similar hours, I can count on two hands how many times he has been able to walk with us to school in the last four years. 

I will hold to my full time family vision, not knowing ‘how’ it is going to unfold.   My mom’s death taught me that sometimes we can’t just figure things out, we must walk them out. 

With excitement.  

With gratitude for each day. 

With moments like this. 

As a full time family. 

  

Be Wondering “What to Wear!” NO MORE!

Today is another epic day…. as I head into the second autumn season of life without my mom, I am stretching myself to do things I have never done and I am asking for a ton of help.

On my knees, humbled, baking cakes and asking for help.

Most people don’t know this, but my mom was the force behind my wardrobe for most of my life.  Every Christmas and birthday, I was very, very excited to see what my mom had picked out for me.  (Well, maybe I wasn’t so excited during those teen years!)  For the last two years, my wardrobe has been floundering a little bit.  When you open the bottom drawer of your dresser and wonder, “How did all those black yoga pants and tights get in there?”, you know that you need an intervention.   You know when Sexy Neck dawns the doors of Lulu to buy some undies, that things are getting a bitter tattered and worn.

Today, I am getting a wardrobe intervention.

I have hired a professional!

A person who comes into your home.

Flings open the closet and dresser drawers.

And takes a close look at what is going on in there!

I have done a whole garbage truck full of inner work and now I am very humbled to have Michelle from “What to Wear” come to help me create a matching outside.   I want a suit of armour to wear as I venture into new realms of possibility and begin living my amazing dreams as an author, professional network marketer and present Mama, always and forever.  I am not sure how Michelle is going to get this six foot frame into something other than jeans, summer skirts and black yoga pants, but I am very open to see what she has in store.

Plus, I am excited to never have to ask “What to wear” again?

She even asked me to fill out a form ahead of time… you know that we are off to a great start because I do love my forms!

Be in Massive ‘Inaction’! 

I had a breakthrough weekend at a business conference last Saturday.  It was truly incredible for the inspiration for action that it provided.  I realized that when you go to conferences, you need to create an action plan to help follow through and to stop from becoming adrenal junkie conference hoppers. Just hopping from conference to conference looking for that next ‘high’ or breakthrough.  

Conferences in Las Vegas.  

90 Day Game Plans. 

Massive Action.  

Goal setting and vision creating.  

I was so inspired that I decided to create a plan of ‘Inaction’! 

Less action.  

More Focus. 

Less doing.  

More being.  

My phone now sits on the fridge between 2:30pm and 7:00pm EVERY day.  

My computer is off unless I decide to sit down for 15 minutes and give ‘er with focused, concrete goals to be achieved.  

My ‘work’ is done in chunks of time lumped  together and spread throughout  the day when it works for me.  

My life is back in balance and MASSIVE action is coming from my ‘Inaction’. 

I am connecting with people on a deeper, less interrupted level. 

My boys and I are reading more, hanging out more and I am more present.  

I own my own schedule again. 

My calendar doesn’t run me and my technology doesn’t suck my time away into a vortex of nothingness. 

And the most ironic thing, my business is flourishing! 

Stop.  

Look at your time.  

Do you need to create some space for some massive ‘inaction’? 

Stop doing.  

Just be.  

You. 

Be Shocked at my Swimsuit

Day by day.  

I never realized how my daily decisions could create so many changes and breakthrough moments in my life.  

One year ago… 

…I was never going back to teaching… But I found my dream job. 

…I was never going to ‘survive’ my mom’s death… But I did and my life has never been richer.  

…I was determined not to ‘give up’ on relationships… But I let them go and am finding freedom to live.  

… I was thirty pounds heavier, working out hard and wasn’t losing weight… But I am partnering with the company of my dream and have never been healthier. 

Dude! Daily choices do create huge changes.  

The proof is in the swimsuit.  

Shocked.  

Exhilarated.  

Excited.  

Savouring this moment.  

Look at ALL that extra fabric.  

Be enough, one mouthful, one relationship, one swimsuit at a time.

Be ‘Success’ful

I am not sure who to credit this photo or these words with, but I believe that this is the definition of success for me. I saw this on facebook and it struck a chord deep within me.  I heard a loud ‘gong’!

I believe I need to embrace all these words below the iceberg to be ‘Success’ful.


Hard work.

Risk.

Late nights.

Struggles.

Failures.

Persistence.

Action.

Discipline.

Courage.

Doubts.

Changes.

Criticisms.

Disappointments

Adversity.

Rejections.

Sacrifices.


For the first time in my life I am living outside my comfort zones EVERY DAY. I know my dreams and freedoms live OUTSIDE OF MY COMFORT ZONE.

Did you know I was afraid of horses?  My heart skipped a beat today as I lead this large animal with my son on his back.  I was afraid.  Did that stop me?

Absolutely not!

Success for my son.

Being ‘success’ful outside of my comfort zone.

Be Networking 

WARNING: It has become very clear, I may need to put a caveat at the top of this post, but I am not going to because I truly feel I don’t need one.  

You be the judge…

Three weeks ago, I didn’t know that network marketing was a dirty word for some people.  

A trigger. 

Words that make you turn and run. 

A type of business that makes people start to ignore you. 

My family and friends are very supportive of me and my goal to help others succeed in life, but many people aren’t a fan of the type of company I am choosing to partner with. 

Growing up, I didn’t know anyone involved in network marketing.  I became exposed to it in University through my husband’s volleyball coach and Sexy Neck’s aunt and uncle but I didn’t really hear or know much about it!  

I NEVER had a negative experience.  

I NEVER had anyone harass me. 

When I started my business five months after starting to use the products and the day after my mom’s birthday, I felt privileged to serve and help people with a product I loved.  I knew the product would sell itself.   

My goals were simple with my new adventure: 

Invest in myself. 

Be vulnerable and share my journey. 

Share tools that the company provides.  

Create a connection between one of the many experts on my team. 

 See if this incredible solution based company that helps people have more energy, perform at a higher level, age well, lose weight or create wealth was for each UNIQUE human ‘being’ that crossed my path.  

The VERY best thing about this company is that I got to stick in my heart because the company does all the ‘head’ stuff. 

Connecting with people. 

Listening to goals.  

Walking with my ‘network’.  

Letting the company do the ‘business stuff’. 

Building websites for each associate.  

Providing research. 

Creating movies and podcasts.  

Educating myself and anyone who wants to be. 

I have the great privilege to CHOOSE who I work with every day.  And, if someone chooses to buy a product, I get a referral payment added onto a prepaid Visa.  Then, drum roll please, if that person refers someone, we both get a referral payment.  

It is an incredible gift to be able to watch people reach their personal goals with this amazing company.  

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this opportunity. 

Network marketing is a tool to support  myself and others, not harass.  

Working on myself. 

Helping others.  

Working with incredible people on my ever growing team. 

Serving not selling.  

Creating freedom income through products I love.
