Reminder you can do this “fresh start” thing your way

Hey Beautiful Person!

How are things going for you so far?

I just wanted to remind you that you can have a fresh start whenever you want.

You may feel like you are seeing people on social media seeming like they have it all figured out. They have their goals, words of the year, vision boards, and perfect plan of actions already to “slay” the year.

Remember you do you. If choosing a word doesn’t feel right this year then don’t do it maybe a word a month feels better or a list of words and heart resolutions, maybe it’s a phrase or nothing. It’s up to you.

Maybe you don’t want to do a vision board (also you can call it an intention board or inspiration board) you can skip creating one, decide you want to use one image to represent what you desire this year or put words and images (or just words or just images) in a journal instead or create a piece of art to represent it.

Maybe you don’t freaking know what you want this year yet, guess what? That’s totally OK!

Sit with it, you  get to decide what will best support you. Maybe it’s the tools and clarity we talked about above. Maybe it’s not but you hesitate to put it in place, name it or pursue it because that’s not what you think you should do.

Do things your way, do it in the time that feels right to you.

5 Sunday practices for a better week

Hey lovely souls,

these days most especially this time of year can have us reacting to all there is to do all the expectations.

I know for me this is true and sometimes I don’t even realize I’m in that mode of reacting vs responding.

I think having practices that support you and intentional responding are a great way to reduce the stress of constant reaction mode.

  1. Plan your week. Obviously you can’t plan every detail or anticipate every possible distraction or drama. But you can plan with intention. What needs attention, what needs to get accomplished, what ways can you take care of your mind body and soul?
  2. Do a blitz around your space. This isn’t about massive decluttering it’s about taking 5-15 minutes in your space/spaces to put things away, shift things around etc.
  3. check in with yourself what do you need to support you or you and yours? A few groceries , reminders for appointments? Take a few minutes to figure that out snd carve out the time if you can.
  4. Do something that makes you feel nourished. Read, eat a yummy meal, hydrate, go for a walk. This doesn’t have to be time consuming.
  5. Do a brain dump. Some things will end up in your plan for the week, done might be ideas or gratitudes. This helps us not to hold onto so much mentally.

Do you have Sunday practices?

Book Pre-Order and Supporting those in need!

Hey Beautiful Souls!

I am thrilled to announce the launch of a passion project I have been working on this year. This is a project that my Dad and I were working on for a while now. He passed away before we could finish it (and we had just recommitted a few months before he passed away) It was too tender of a project to finish last year for me and for those I would have asked for some support on. So I committed to getting it completed this year and self published. Here it is! 

If you are looking for a different kind of devotional that explores  the intersection of spirituality and creativity, prompts (I call them Soul Prompts) to help you take that idea into your daily life in a practical manner then this book is for you! 

For the first 60 days of this books sales all proceeds earned will be donated to help the victims of the devastating Paradise, CA fires (near Chico, CA) we have family in Chico a very close town to the one that has been virtually destroyed.

You can find out more about the book and Pre-Order here!!!

Monthly Reflection and Intentions

Hey Lovely Souls,

Well ready or not it’s November (or just about depending on when you are reading this) So I thought I would share some prompts to reflect on the month coming to an end and some prompts to set intentions for the new month in front of us.

Reflection:

  • What went well this month
  • What are a few highlights, good moments I had this month?
  • What did I notice this month?
  • What did I put of or resist this month?
  • Where did I rock it , show up this month?

Intentions:

  • What do I want to feel this month?
  • What do I want to create this month?
  • What do I want to explore this  month?
  • What do I want to accomplish this month
  • What do I want to savor this month?

Re-evaluate your 2018 goals- Living with Intention

Hey Lovely Souls,

I am doing a series of prompts over the next few weeks for leaning into the rest of 2018 with intention.

Intention Prompt:

Re-evaluate your goals for 2018. When the year starts we often have this idealistic view of all we can and want to do, we get inspired by others lists and we start adding to ours. There is nothing wrong with getting inspired by others and even adding things to your list. But when I am suggesting here is that you think of those as an inspiration list of things that might be awesome to do, learn, create or accomplish.  And then to look at your lists of dreams/goals/resolutions for this year. What hasn’t happened yet? What do you really truly want to still dive into from this list.

Choose the ones that are really important to you and are tugging at you. Allow the rest just to be put aside or put on the inspiration list of things that could be awesome this or next year or…

This is the perfect time to re-evaluate what really matters to you to accomplish or start, create, explore this year. Then you know what your energy needs to go towards.

Go to prompts when you don’t know what to write

Hey Beautiful Souls,

If you have ever read my blog before you  know how I feel about journaling! If not, I will tell you now. I love it, it’s the tool that has helped support me in so many ways. It’s such a forgiving and inexpensive practice (unless you have a journal buying problem, that I may or may not have lol)

Even the  most “seasoned” journalers can sometimes feel stuck when it comes to showing up to the blank page.

Here are some go to prompts:

  1. Right now (I feel, Need)
  2. Truth
  3. Currently, life looks like…
  4. More of/ less of list
  5. Where I am currently putting my energy and attention.
  6. Lately I am noticing

Several of these would be awesome done for a week solid or month. They also stand on their own just fine!

Grab your journal and go for it!
