DO ONE THING EVERYDAY THAT SCARES YOU (in a good way😜)⠀
Why are we always bound by what other people think we should do? Sometimes, we will even turn into the little voices in our head doubting, judging and even criticising ourselves.⠀
I've recently received a report that had me panic a little. I start to reflect on 'life' - why did I give a fuck to someone or something?⠀
Never substitute what your 'friends' and family think for what you feel right. NEVER REGRET - NO ONE is obliged for our life choices and no one should take the blame for our regret.⠀
Ever since I've started posting non-personal stuff, on taking mindful and conscious changes on lifestyle, I've got friends asking me WHY I'm doing this: am I trying to be a 'KOL', trying to sell something, wanting to make money, or if I've got too much time to kill.⠀
The answer is NO. Just because I'm doing something you don't spend YOUR time on doesn't mean I have too much time. Why can't we be mindful of what we are using and doing? It's really just what I feel strongly about + me being me. I know I'm barely scratching the surface of 🌎issues, but if I know something is bad, and that people don't seem to know about it, then I just do what I feel right: 🗣 about it.⠀
I've never really seen the point of social media other than an narcissistic outlet for some. But I decided to embrace the fact that we all spent loads of time reading online. Why can't we use it for more beneficial purposes while still being chill and laid-back?⠀
This is that one thing I did that scares me and give me a little heart attack every now and then. I don't know how my friends on IG feel having me bombarding them with these posts, but if it passed on the message to someone at some idle Tuesday afternoon and they remember it, the mission is done.⠀
What is that one thing that you'll do today? ⠀
I had the urge to reread one of my favourite books, but didn't want to pay $17+ for a new copy from a larger chain bookstore... 😑 While I could have just gone to a library and borrowed, I still like to support my local used book stores. Libraries will always be around because they are funded through tax dollars, but local bookstores need community support to survive. 📚 I also considered getting the digital format, but some books demand to be read in the physical form. I'm a romantic like that. 😜 Once I'm done, it will be re-donated and enjoyed by someone else! #reuse#consciouschoices#supportlocal#wutheringheights#reread
Thank you @lights.of.all for these beautiful words that capture my convictions about the way I live my life and the purchases I make.

How did I just got to ordering my first reusable coffee cup?! Thank you for putting out the gentle reminder to us @thetinyearthling 😊. I can't wait for mine to arrive!! Research found that the break-even energy requirement to manufacture a reusable plastic cup versus a paper cup over a lifetime use is under 15 uses. Cheers to many conscious tea's and coffee's ☕️ Photo credit: @veroniandco

"Love Thy Earth is a brand that does not cut corners at the expense of the earth to fill ones pocket, this is a brand that "Loves Thy Earth" completely 🌿💚 Everything that goes into this brand is made with conscious choices. The hope is purely to inspire and create a more sustainable future, for us, for the children, for this earth 🌏 let's work together and continue to "plant seeds of consciousness"
I pray that each one of us finds our voice.
I pray that we have the courage, the boldness, the bravery to stay awake to the overwhelming darkness that is occurring on this planet every day, so we may see where our prayers are needed.
I vow to no longer turn a blind eye to the news, in the hope of saving my sensitive soul. I choose to be fully awake, to the love that encompasses every moment, and the darkness that overtime has weakened us and caused much greed, force and duality.
I pray that all of us come closer to ourselves and see that change begins here.
Peace begins here, inside.
Help us find the courage, the patience, to sit in stillness as often as we wash our skin, so we may start each day clean. I pray we learn to love ourselves, nurture ourselves and release all the walls in which we have built out of fear of not being good enough, capable enough, beautiful enough. I pray you see your magnitude, beauty and sacredness.
I call upon the strength to release the karmic patterns of duality, which evolve into comparison, anger and resentment, so we may return to our wholeness and work with one another to fight the hard fight for Love.
I pray for the release of duality so we may see that when we nurture ourselves, we expand the capacity to nurture one another and our Earth.
I pray that each of us wakes up and sees that every choice, every thought, every product we buy and company we support, either creates more harm or empowers the movement of sustainability, ethicality and harmony within ourselves and our Mother Earth.
I pray that in the darkness of this total eclipse over America, all of those who stand for equality, truth and peace, learn to speak up, because there are more of us than there are of those who practice evil. May the silence be broken, so we no longer quietly endure this collective pain, starvation and violence in helpless suffering. Give those that believe in Love the strength to stand with conviction.
We are the masses. Help us, Wise Ones, to feel the simmering power inside and work to clear the pathways so we may express the innate truth inside.
Help us be the leader. In service of Light, help us see that we are the change in every moment

Early yesterday morning as we were heading out fishing, my oldest asked to hear some fishing stories. My husband assured him that "we are going to have an adventure today" (yesterday). 🙌🏼 Boy did we ever!! 😂
From getting a late start, to not being able to start the boat, to using the battery from the truck in the boat, to a crazy, water soaking ride across the rough waters, lunch on a private beach, playing in the water, getting stranded on the water and getting a tow, finally getting back to the truck to find a broken boat trailer and making several trips back and forth to get the trailer and the boat...we had an "eventful" day!! 🚤🌊🎣🌲🚣🏼♀️ A constant through my mind all day (when things don't go how they're "supposed" to) were four magical words that I read in one of my favourite books....YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT! 💫
These words have helped me in so many situations to just accept things as they are and it is up to me how I react to a situation!! I have NO control over anything in the past (which can be something that happened one minute ago), nor can I control the future. All we have is this moment right NOW and how we react to each moment controls our mood and overall, our experiences, whether they're good or bad. ☺️🙁 With one thing after another going "wrong" yesterday, we had to make a decision whether we'd let it ruin our day or become a part of our "adventure". We chose the latter!!! 😉. It's not always easy to do this, but with practice and keeping those four words in mind...it can make a huge difference to how I "react" to many situations!!! Next time something "bad" happens...remember those four words and see how YOU react?! 😘 💗
Tips to make a "work" Sunday more fun. 1- meet a friend for breakfast, this gets you up and out of the house with positive feelings. 2- coffee shop hop, visit your fav productive haunts so it feels like self care and a Sunday despite doing work. 3- buckle down and be productive, weekend work days can make the rest of the week a lot less stressful, or they can be the worst mishmash of both sacrificing rest and not getting things done. I try to prioritize fun and R&R outside of normal work hours, but when that won't cut it this is the next best thing! #balance#worklifebalance#lovemylife#priorities#consciouschoices
Sneak peak ~ this wonderful contributor @lisamitchellhwf in the first edition of Soulful Living Magazine.
Lisa shares a wonderful message of health, wellness and freedom. Three words that are very close to her heart and she openly shares some of her own personal journey in our conversation here - a journey I know resonates for many of us who have had a 'love hate' relationship with food and our bodies.
Lisa shares her beautiful & gentle nature here, yet also an empowering message that all these three things - health, wellness and freedom are possible and you too can find it within yourself - that soulful place of self belief and self love - where you can say "I feel free". This is a heart warming, uplifting and inspiring conversation with Lisa and it's such a joy to share her words and her heart in the first special edition of Soulful Living Magazine.
You can receive your free copy of the magazine through the website or the profile link above. Created for your pleasure and inspiration, with love. Enjoy! Xx
Happy National Honeybee Day! 🐝 If you didn't know, bees are in a bit of trouble because of all the pesticides and sprays we are using on crops. And we need our pollinators to produce food, keep our ecosystems healthy, etc. So what can you do to help the hives? Buy organic as much as your situation allows, donate to bee conservation efforts, grow some bee-friendly plants in your outdoor space, and put your money towards supporting beekeepers who are doing right by the bees. One of my favourite companies is @beekeepers_naturals based in Ontario! 🇨🇦 I have half a teaspoon of the Bee Powered in the morning which boosts my immune system, and then a few spritzes of the Throat Relief if I feel a bit congested. So if you see a fuzzy friend fly by you today, don't swat. Appreciate. 🐝 #nationalhoneybeeday#savethebees#consciouschoices#supportlocal#nectarcollecter#beesplease
