5 things about me…

img_9072

Hey Inspiring Souls,

I love writing this blog. I show up again and again because I love to spread inspiration and always hope to connect. Something that I have found I have resistance to doing is to share more of me, more of my life on this blog. So I am pushing myself a bit outside of my comfort zone each time I share something that is a little more personal.

So here are 5 things about me.. I would love it if you shared something about you as well!

  1. I have a fear of driving, while I don’t feel that it stops me in too many instances in my life I do know that it does hold me back in some ways sometimes.
  2. I love to collect Crystals these days… I always want to know the meaning of them before I buy them.
  3. A part of me would love to be  a dress and heels gal.. but in reality, I am much more me when I am in pants (usually jeans) and flats.. oh and I always have a layering tank (usually black) on!
  4. I am the youngest of 4 girls and likely the most outspoken of us (I said big mouth, my sister says outspoken.. we will go with her word it sounds better!)
  5. My husband and I have been married for 21 years and have no kids (though we talk about changing that more and more lately.. the kids part not the marriage!)

What about you, tell me something “random” about you!❤

This Month I want to…Welcome December

img_8919

Hey Beautiful Souls!

Welcome to December! Can you believe it? As usual, I am surprised by how fast time is flying by, seriously!

I love lists, so at the start of every month I make a list of things I need, want and would like to get done, create, experience etc… I created a free printable for it (scroll down a bit on the page..) as well if you want to download that. It’s easy to let the days run you instead of ever feeling like it’s the other way around. Making lists of intentions, things I want to savor etc. is one thing that helps keep checked in!

December can be full for so many reasons.. if you only have time for one question then let it be this… How do I want to feel this month, then before you say a yes to something or a no…check in with that feeling.. does it take you closer to it or further away?

If you love journaling or want to start digging into it a bit more be on the lookout this month for posts on reflection and dreaming/planning.

img_9335

Heya Beautiful Souls!

I like to use my journals not only as a way to sort through, express, spew out thoughts and bits of my life (beauty and frustrations) I also like to document what things I am loving or inspired by at various times in my life..

This can be done as a visual journal prompt or written or however you feel called to express it!

These days I am loving, Inspired by..

Some of mine are..

Taking more photos (with my camera phone)

The ease of a slow cooker

Gray, especially darker grays.

New planners

Moments of connection and laughter with my family

 

Those who hold space for others in such an authentic and tender way.

Flowers, especially darker pink ones!

and so so much more!

What are you loving

Soul Nourishment- 5 Minute Challenge

img_8142

I have a challenge for you all this week (and for myself) It’s so easy to let our day take us over, to somehow forget how certain practices really nourish us and to replace those bits with busywork. So this week let’s commit to:

Spend 5 minutes (or  more) doing something that nourishes your Soul. 

It’s going to look different for each of us, maybe even different each day or week.. here are some ideas to get you started.

  • Read a page from an inspiring  book
  • Listen to a song that you love, close your eyes and soak it in or dance it out!
  • Grab a magazine page, word or image that you feel drawn to from magazine and glue it down. (no overthinking!)
  • Make a list of Gratitude
  • Sit outside for a bit and take some deep breaths (this is one that really nourishes me but I tend to put off lately for some reason.)
  • Meditate, Pray, Affirmations
  • Spread some paint down

Intention- Journal Promt

20150723-105826.jpg

Hey Lovely Souls…

For many of us, Thanksgiving is tomorrow and that means we are in full on Holiday mode. This is the time of year that for many can bring up so many triggers and stress.  Setting an intention can really support you during this time. It can help take you from reaction mode to respond mode.  Take even just 5 minutes in your journal or at the least in your head! And ask yourself what your intentions are going into this holiday season.

My Intentions are, My Intention is.

For me,it’s to be present and patient.

Deep Breaths

I am grateful for you, grateful that you take the time to read what I have shared, engage and show up in your own lives.❤

What is not yours to carry- Tuesday Truth

20151006-230035.jpg

Hey Beautiful Souls!

Especially going into these holidays for many of us this week, it’s really easy to take on everyone  else’s “stuff”.

Take a deep breath and affirm.. It is safe to put down what is not mine to carry.

Schedule- Create Space for Truth

img_8720

Hey Inspiring Souls!

Creating Space for truth can show up in so many different ways. Sometimes those ways are physical, other times they are mental. Much of it  effects and reflects the other. It also often happens in seemingly small steps.

We hang onto so many things clothes, books, jewelry, beliefs, commitments/obligations that don’t’ really reflect us or the life we want to create. We can shift that by bringing awareness to those things that no longer fit or reflect and releasing them where we can or shifting them.

So this week I want to encourage you to look at your schedule, your current obligations and see if there is something that is feeling heavy, unaligned, like a big ol “should” and let it go, delegate it, step back for a while or if none of those are options can  you shift the way you think of it? Sometimes those obligations one we really think about them we can see the opportunity in them.
