Today there are new rules - over the last 9 months I've slowly changed my rules for caring for myself. 1) swimming 5-6 days a week πŸ’ͺ🏻 2) spending 1-2 hours every morning at the lake on personal growth πŸ™πŸ» 3) taking a 3-step process of vitamins and nutrients called Thrive 4) eating better and drinking more water (this is a work in a progress for sure 😌) and today - today I begin work on self-worth.

It's a crisp cool morning on the lake. Today I write a new story - I head down a path that I've never ventured down. I'm sure there will be bumps in the road.

When I was a little girl I would lay on a blanket in the yard for hours and try to find shapes in the clouds. ☁️☁️The dreams I once had seem to have slipped away with the clouds over the years.

Today's affirmation - I AM WORTHY OF THE INVESTMENT ❀️ If I could go back 20 years, one of the most important things I would tell myself is to take time for myself. We all get so caught up in the busyness of life that we don't think we have time to invest in ourselves. If we don't fill our own tank, we will have nothing to give. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #lessonsfromthelake #thisismyyear #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #mondaymotivation #fillyourtank #selfcare #femaleentrepreneur

Unstoppable skill sets - I watched a video last night that stopped me in my tracks and I can't stop thinking about it. What type of skill set do you have that makes you unstoppable?

The quiet, peaceful morning is my time to work on myself. Oprah says - "What we dwell on, is who we become." For so many years I dwelled on doing more, working more, hustling like a crazy women. And guess what? My life was crazy. My health crashed big time and I totally lost my way in life. Shortly after starting my morning routine, I knew I could (and would) never go back to the crazy life. Are there still crazy, stressful days? Sure. But I've learned to recognize them and figure out how to avoid them. What are you doing for yourself today? πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #thisismyyear #lessonsfromthelake #morningsatthelake #morningritual #femaleenterpreneur #slowdown

My view is a little different this morning as I searched out the best sunny spot. As we head into the weekend, I'd like to encourage you to set aside some time, even if it's 15 minutes, to spend quietly thinking. Think of the week that just ended and all you accomplished, think of the week ahead and all you need to do. Then schedule time in every day that you will spend alone, to be quiet, breathe deeply and slow down. Have an amazing weekend my friends!! πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #thisismyyear #lessonsfromthelake #morningroutineatthelake #moringritual #thelathamfamily #inspirational

Looking through my journal this morning, I came across this quote "To grow you must be willing to let your present and future be totally unlike your past. Your history is not your destiny." Early this year I decided and "put it out there" that this year would be different. This was going to be the year that I finally made some changes. With the end of the year coming up quickly (too quickly) I can firmly say that my life has changed and is changing. We have a lot more ahead of us that will change before the end of the year. I'm ready. I'm excited. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #thisismyyear #lessonsfromthelake #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #thelathamfamily #femaleentrepreneur

Blue, green, red. All blueberries. All stemming from the same bunch, on the same branch, on the same bush. Exposed to the same elements, wind, rain, sun. The same species, the same potential, but each with its own journey to become complete. Some seem to be in a race to meet perfection, quickly reaching the glossy blue that cannot be replicated in any other living thing. They are precocious in their perfection. Often blooming too quickly , shriveling on the stem, or dropping to the ground below, quickly absorbed by the life that continues around them. If recognized early enough and carefully handled and removed from the race, they find purpose and position beyond the bushel. Some seem to gain their ruddy complexion, tucked in the shadows, maturing at their own pace and producing unexpected beauty in the process. They may not complete this leg of the journey as quickly, but they get there all the same. Their added perspective can add to their sweetness just as easily as it can leave them soured and less accomplished.They add contrast to the traditional beauty of the leaders, revealing that glory is also born in the background. The green of the fledgling berries is very different than that of the plant’s leafy foundation. This shade exudes the vibrance that can only be found in an emerging force. As beautifully formed as their counterparts, these vessels require more time on the vine, more sunshine, more water, more opportunity. They cannot be rushed along, nor picked too soon. They contain all of the tools necessary to shine a glossy blue, but their journey will involve taking some side roads. Their substance allowing them to appreciate the view. They would not be as beautiful on their own, they would not each have their own moment in the sun if success was synchronized. They would burn too quickly, or shut down too soon if a soulful gardener did not provide balance between pace and purpose, between shine and substance and they would never find the grit and the grace to bloom again next year. #lessons #naturesclassroom #differentandthesame #blueberriesforal #empath #nh #newengland #lessonsfromthelake

I went to the lake hoping to find rest and clarity for some major life decisions... instead, all that solo time caused me to come face to face with some of the ugly in my own heart.. the more I prayed for answers and clarity, the more I heard the word surrender. I've tried to control every area of my life, and I get SO beyond stressed when things don't go how I want! I like things my way, and on my time table. This season of waiting is turning out to be the biggest test of my faith!! God keeps gently reminding me to trust him, he promised beauty from ashes, and he promised he will finish the good work he started... I am taking him at his word and surrendering my plans and my dreams, and trusting he will be faithful to keep his promises #surrender #peace #waitingisnotmything #growthispainful #lessonsfromthelake #itiswellwithmysoul

There is a heavy fog over the lake this morning. It makes me think about how day after day, year after year I have lived in a fog, not really being clear about what I need, want or how I want my life and business to look.

My view today is a bit farther from the lake, as I sit in the back of the vehicle. But I'm still here, I'm still doing my morning routine in the chilly rain. I read something this morning sent from my hubby - the new CEO of Uber says - "I have to tell you I am scared" - my friend, I am scared. I am scared I don't have what it takes to be a successful businesswoman. I am scared that I'll work my butt off and no one will like what I have to offer. The list goes on and on. But you know what? I'm not letting it stop me. You know why? Because I have 3 sons that are watching me. I have a family that is counting on me. I have a supportive husband. I have angels that I told I was going to do it. But mostly - I have to do it for myself. I have to be accountable to myself. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #lessonsfromthelake #thisismyyear #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #CEO #femaleentrepreneur #businesswoman

As I walked along the beach in the rain this morning I could feel someone with me. I stopped and turned around but of course no one was there. Then I realized it was my Mom. Her angel was visiting me, giving me a little shove, and telling me to - Go! Do it! I'll be by your side! - Yep, I lost it. The tears flowed because I miss my parents so terribly but also because I know they are with me - every.single.step on the path.

Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day!! A couple months back during my morning routine at the lake, I asked God to show me a fish so I would know that I'm on the right path. Yes I'm at the lake. Yes I may see fish. However, I'm at the beach where you typically wouldn't see a lot of fish, especially big fish. Well a couple days ago as I walked down the beach a bit, listening to a video about retraining your brain, I looked up and there he was. The biggest fish I've seen so far in my 3 months of coming to the lake. I'm still not 100% sure that what I'm doing is where God intends me to be. But what I do know, is that each day I'm getting closer and closer to figuring it out. I thought I knew - I built a six-figure business on what I knew how to do. Now, I'm not so sure. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ#bigchangesahead #thisismyyear #lessonsfromthelake #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #femaleentrepreneur

Here's a 5 minute exercise for you today that might just change everything. Write down 168 hours on a piece of paper- that's how many hours you have in a week. Then subtract the hours you sleep. Then continue subtracting hours starting with non-negotiables. You might just be shocked at how much time you have. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈβ± #lessonsfromthelake #thisismyyear #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #thelathamfamily #timemanagement

There comes a time when we all look at our life and try to figure out why we are doing the things we are doing. That time came for me about a year ago. Some call it mid-life crisis πŸ™ˆ What I pray for my boys, family and all of you is that you don't wait until the middle of your life. You should figure out what makes you happy NOW, what success means to you NOW! Don't wait! Life is too short!

It's raining a bit today. I'm still at the lake but I'm under shelter. When I first started coming to the lake for my morning routine, I had no idea where it would lead. But this small change has literally changed SO many things for me - my stress is lower and more manageable - my self doubt is better each day and even my marriage is better, to name just a few.

Well hello August!! As we head into the second half of the year, it's a great time to reflect and think about where you are and where you want to be.

I encourage you to take some time today to start writing things out.

Each morning before I leave the lake, I walk to the edge of the water - I thank God for my quiet time, pray for those in need and lay my hand on my heart and say "It's my time. I'm ready for the next step." I learned this powerful mantra from @denisedt a few years back while reading her book. I've recently come back to doing it again. We don't know what the future holds, but if we aren't ready and open our minds and hearts, we will be stuck in the same holding pattern. πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #thisismyyear #lessonsfromthelake #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #femaleentrepenuer #strongereveryday

Pause and reflect. It's such a powerful concept, but we rarely do it. I used to think that the harder I worked, the more hours I put in - then I would get ahead. I pushed and pushed and pushed. Then my body starting screaming at me - whoa! sister you need to slow down! It's still really hard. Changing your mindset is the most difficult thing. But I've learned that taking it with baby steps helps a lot. So my friend, take some time today to pause and reflect. Take 5 minutes before bed and think about your day. Are you proud of it? Or do you need some adjustments? I have lots of adjusting still to do. But I'm making progress. Big changes are coming! πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ #thisismyyear #lessonsfromthelake #morningroutineatthelake #morningritual #thelathamfamily

What is the negative self-talk that you have? 
Me? Oh I definitely have a struggle with this. 
Today I'd like to challenge you - write 3 affirmations down and repeat them 10 times. Then do that several times during the day and before bed.
