Chocolate Peppermint Fat Bombs

Chocolate Peppermint Fat Bombs

Every year after Halloween, I watch the baristas at Starbucks remove the signs for Pumpkin Spice Lattes and replace it with the gleaming red signs for Christmas. Of course I’m watching this as I wait impatiently in line to ask for my grande half sweet coconut […]

I was talking to a good friend recently about each other’s lives and how we were feeling about growing up. We kept saying how much farther we should be in our careers or how much more established we should be in life. Simultaneously we stopped […]

Sitting With Your Thoughts

Sitting With Your Thoughts

Our minds are interesting machines. They have the ability to make decisions for us, they can replay scenarios over and over again, but best of all they can take ONE thought and turn it into A MILLION thoughts. This is what I like to refer to as the snowball effect. Actually, its more like magic really, watch…..

“I look fat today. I can’t find any nice clothes to wear. My make up is not going to look good. Oh gosh, just put on whatever, it doesn’t even matter. Is everyone else going to think I look fat today? Are they going to think it in their head and not say anything to me but really they’ll be thinking about it and I know they’ll be thinking about it. I can’t go to work today. If I look fat then people will judge me and I cant do my job if people are judging me. Okay, let me just go to my favourite coffee shop and get some coffee, That will make me feel better. Let me get a muffin too, I know it will make me feel better…”

Shall I continue?

Let’s stop for a moment and sit with our thoughts. You see, the thing is, our thoughts only snowball if we let them and let me let you in on a little secret, we don’t have to let them! They have no power unless you give them power. If you decide not to listen to a negative thought then it has no where to go but out of your head. There is no longer space in there for it to linger and taunt you. If you immediately think of a new, happy thought and give that thought your attention, that is what will stay.

Here’s the thing, at first it is easy to let your negative thoughts snowball because it is out of your control, you just sit back and watch the snowball build. It takes WORK to focus on the positive thoughts at first because it doesn’t come natural. But eventually, your brain will be so used to thinking positively that it will become second nature.

Listen, you were not born into creation to live a life of negative thoughts. You’ve got to trust me on this one. Let’s take the first step in changing the negative headspace you’ve been living in.

You Wont Find Inspiration in a Basement

You Wont Find Inspiration in a Basement

Take it from someone who currently calls a basement apartment her home, you will not find inspiration in a basement. Although I love the cozy little home I have created, it is hard to draw inspiration from somewhere you live day in and day out. […]

If Not Now, When?

If Not Now, When?

Do you ever catch yourself saying, when work slows down I’ll get back into my routine? Or, on the first of next month I will start my diet again? Or, I’ll just enjoy the summer and once autumn hits, I will be strict with myself. […]

Today I Choose… Patience

I was talking to a good friend recently about each other’s lives and how we were feeling about growing up. We kept saying how much farther we should be in our careers or how much more established we should be in life. Simultaneously we stopped talking and took a deep breath.

Why are we being so hard on ourselves?

To believe you should be anywhere other than where you are at this exact moment is silly. I say time and time again that we should be living in the here and now, yet I often find myself thinking I should be anywhere but here.

In today’s fast-paced, social media fuelled world, it is easy to think that you should be somewhere you’re not. It’s not your fault, you are constantly being told to buy the new best thing, to gain as many followers as you can, to go from there to here and here to there.

When you go home at night is when you have to face the facts. Are you who you want to be?

Ask yourself that. Is your answer aligned with how you are living?

To be honest, someone is ALWAYS going to have something to say about how you choose to live your life. A computer screen has given people a voice they wouldn’t otherwise have.

When you find yourself thinking that you should be somewhere that you’re not. Take a deep breath. Practice patience. Know that everything you need is taken care of by the universe but it is not given to you until you are ready for it.

That is a lesson I am currently learning so I am on this journey with you.

Trust. Believe. Be patient.
