We hear a ton about dreaming big and reaching for the stars. As kids were told we can be anything we want to be, but no one tells us the amount of work that needs to go into being whatever we want. Let's face it, dreaming sounds much nicer than hustling. Investing in those dreams cost time, money and energy.
When you want something enough, putting in the extra investment is key.
The same goes for our emotional, physical and mental wellness. It sounds real pretty to be a 5am runner-organic eating-meditating individual. The reality is all that takes time, energy and an investment to plan those things into your life.
What's one part of you that needs some investing? Make a plan to incorporate something new into your wellness routine. You'll thank yourself!

I met Madeline in Baltimore today. She had walked by the van once and in curiosity made the decision to come back and see what it was all about. She patiently waited as I finished up the interviews that were in progress, quietly observing and listening. When a homeless woman approached our group, she was the first person to go into her wallet and offer her some money. I admired her sneakers which had painted fried eggs all over them, and she shared that she made them herself. When I asked her how she wanted to be in the world, she beautifully wrote "Brave" on the BE Board. She shared that she was working to be more brave in her life - by talking to more people and honestly sharing her feelings with her new roommates. She talked about being more brave in her work - she wants to be an illustrator one day - and how she was working to speak up more in class. It was not until we were 3/4 through the interview that she shared her decision to come out as transgender in high school. In my mind I was surprised that she did not lead with this act of bravery! But upon reflection, I love that it was not the first, immediate thing that she shared, as it speaks to the beautiful, real fact that this piece of information is just one part of who she is. It does not define or limit her. It was just another act of bravery in a long list of brave things she has done and will do in her life.
We are not our labels.
We are all multi-faceted, multi-dimensional BEings.
Let's work to see each other as such.
Thank you, Madeline, for reminding me of this today.
Our mission is to empower local churches and communities through education and enterprise.
We have seen businesses started, pastors empowered, and teachers inspired through our model of vocational training.

Something I'll preach forever and ever is the importance of holistic self care.
We're no good to anyone if we're not caring for ourselves. We simply cannot pour out of an empty cup.
Constantly giving without replenishing your mind, body, and spirit can actually do more damage, not only to you, but to those in your care.
Today I chose to care for my body and mind. I spent time in physical activity and spent the morning with some fabulous ladies, learning some new ways to care for myself and my family through the use of essential oils.
Both these avenues of self-care are new for me. It takes conscious effort to get up and move, and to invest time into learning new things.
How do you care for yourself? What area do you need need to make more of an effort when it comes to caring for yourself?
You're worth every effort it takes be be whole, healthy and at peace with yourself.
I wasn't looking (actively) for extra income. I didn't know I would replace my husbands income - giving him the opportunity to do something he loves. I just wanted to see if oils worked, and if a holistic option was more than hoopla. I wanted to see if it all "worked" ; the business, the wellness products, the time freedom. And now, 40 months later - my brain still pops over the trajectory our life has taken. Wellness. Advocacy. It's a real thing. And it can fill your life with vitality; physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially. If you're looking to start a career journey in health and wellness, and helping others-AND need something that is flexible with pacing the rest of your life- I'd love to help you get started. I've created training tools to help you do just that. Imagine 3 months from now having an actual organization that you care for, people you partner with, and well on your way to physical, financial and time freedom. I have available slots for up to 4 new business partners on my team. IM me for a "dating conversation" to see if doTERRA wellness advocate is a good fit for you. #wholeperson#wholepersonhealth#athomebusinessopportunity#businessmom#wellnessadvocate#educate#empower#workfromhome#bossbabe#network#serveothers#worklifebalance
Total Wellness is about so much more than physical fitness. Elements of Wellness:
My weight fluctuates & my body changes.
My fitness level goes up... then down.
Workout buddies come and go.
My favorite workouts shift from time to time (step aerobics 4 life!). I am not perfect, nor do I strive to be-- what keeps me focused is feeling good in my body.
What keeps me moving forward is the strong desire to really LIVE this life & to KNOW what I am capable of.
What about you, what keeps you moving forward?
Last year was a good year for your girl. I've been keeping up with the pace. So don't be coming with the bull. Kinda over the hard times I've been through and I kinda feel loose. My heart I choose....I finally see blue. Raise hands feel focused. I'm done being broken. #high#ledisi#loveme#selfcare#loveself#notbroken#wholeperson#whole
This is totally my philosophy about successful relationships. I believe that 2 whole people come together and create a new and separate entity that never existed before. That is the magic. It is not about someone being your other half and completing you. This gives them too much power and responsibility for your happiness. Let's grow ourselves first and then offer ourselves to another person and set the world on fire.
This is how I operate with my clients. Always interested in and listening to their stories, beyond their particular injuries, illnesses or infections. Their ailments and grievances, their joys and dreams. Their work and their hobbies. Humanization above any diagnostics or prognosis (although these lie beyond the scope of my specific remit).
Disease or dis-ease is temporary and in no way ultimately defining of our selves.
The person persists. Soul and spirit, when body flails or fails. |
At the same time, nota bene, our bodies are our only true homes and our level of care for them reflects and determines the quality of our lives.
6 years with Hissy (7 as an elementary school counselor!) and he still sits on my desk reminding me of so many things. Love the unlovely. Don't fear being bitten (literal & figurative). Attack comes from an unmet need. Anyone can learn. Everyone is important and valuable. Every child deserves having their actions looked through to what's inside. Nurture over nature. Move slowly and quietly. The list goes on....
Clients often ask what the difference is between LinkedIn and your resume. 🤷🏽♀️ In some ways, they're very similar. For example, you'll want to make sure you're highlighting your accomplishments (not just your responsibilities). •
But LinkedIn allows you to tell your story instead of just reporting the facts. You can use the first person ("I'm a data-driven entrepreneur..." instead of "Jack is a data-driven entrepreneur") and "connect" with those viewing your profile. Your viewer will also be able to see the articles you've liked - and maybe even written - on LinkedIn, so keep that in mind as you're scrolling through handing out thumbs up's and commenting on your connections' posts. 👍
Try writing as if you are actually having a conversation with the viewer. Throw in some of your personality and share a little bit of you, the whole person you. So, what will you do to make your LinkedIn profile more "you?" 👊💥🚀
