Journaling Prompts

What is in my way… Journal Prompt

Hey Lovely Soul!

When it comes to being more in alignment with ourselves, our truths, values ,dreams and desires there can be a thousand excuses as to why we are not more so.

I encourage you to get real and name it!

What is standing in my way of living in more alignment with myself? 

Really responding to this prompt can be really empowering and frustrating.  Frustrating because we will often see it’s excuses not real legit reasons and that we are stopping ourselves.. Empowering because we will see that we have much more of the power to shift it (through revealing and healing) than we realized.

Thursday Thoughts

Expectation – Thursday Thoughts

Hey Lovely Souls!

I have realized that I have been operating in many areas of my life with the focus on expectations. Or more accurately, the perceived needs/expectations of others.

I am sure this is something we have all done in our lives. Or most of us anyways. It’s so subtle sometimes we don’t even notice it’s happening at first.  However, it can take up a lot of energy.

This can show up in lots of ways.

How we think were supposed to look, eat, feel, express ourselves  in certain situations, relationships, professions etc.

I invite you to start asking yourself (as I will be asking myself) this simple and powerful question:

What is my intention here (in this act, relationship, habit, etc… )

Monday Mindset

I choose- Monday Mindset

Hey Lovely Souls!

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all that life has going on. The noise,  responsibilities, the things you want to do, have to do etc…  When we start our weeks with the sort of panic, defeated feeling we are not setting ourselves up for success. Our mindsets have SO much more influence over how we experience life than anything else.

I encourage you to look at what your current mindset is on. Then ask yourself, does this mindset support or sabotage how I want to feel and what I need/want to get done/experience this week? 

This weeks Monday Mindset Mantra is to repeat to yourself: I choose a mindset that supports how I want to show up and feel.

Friday 5

Empowering and Inspiring Quotes- Friday 5


Hey Inspiring Souls..

I have run across some really amazing quotes recently and I wanted to share.. I am a lover of quotes (and all things inspirational!) maybe you will find one (or 5) that speak to you as well.

  1. Here’s what I know now – and know this so deeply – I can, YOU can, always be moving toward more of what you want. Even if you need to crawl, to hobble, to roll. In fact, to navigate life skillfully means working with what comes up, using it, flowing around it, crashing through it, all the time.We all want to live our truer lives, to keep navigating closer to what’s real for us. To be seen as we are. To take your last breath and know, “I showed up. I kept listening to what called me. I kept stumbling, dancing and embracing what life brought. I was there for the whole show.” – Jen Louden
  2. Discipline serves freedom. – Kate Northrup
  3. What action or direction calls to you right now, but might leave you bare or unprotected? Where do you have the best chance of at least moving towards what you desire? The need for certainty costs too much. There are no guarantees in anything. But there is a light in going in the right direction. There is the feeling of immeasurable security, knowing you are walking your path. It doesn’t matter if you get somewhere. It’s worth everything to be moving towards your true desire. It’s why you’re here. Only you can choose your life.-           Tama kieves
  4. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestation of your own blessings. {Elizabeth Gilbert}
  5. Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.–Kevyn Aucoin
