Face it, nobody is perfect. You've most likely already made lots of mistakes in your lifetime and you're going to make plenty more. In fact, making mistakes is part of the process of learning.
But just because you know that making a mistake is a fact of life and part of being human doesn’t mean you have to be happy about it. You probably already know that every time you make a mistake you have an opportunity to learn, grow, and change. Sometimes these mistakes lead to an actual improvement in your life.
The worst thing that you can choose to do when you make a mistake is to stew and berate yourself, because think about that... will doing this to yourself really change anything?
As soon as you realize you’ve made a mistake, you can choose to take steps to correct it as soon as you can. If you notice that you have also spent any time berating, criticizing, or scolding yourself for your mistake, immediately remind yourself that you are human and doing the best you can at that moment. To err is human . . . to forgive YOURSELF divine. (Reference: Mental Health & Happiness)
'A vision without action is just a daydream'
Great ideas require action to make them great. This is why a lot of people don't achieve as much as they want to, or think they should.
The ideas are there, but the careful planning and dedication are not. If you look at a lot of successful people, they're story happens across years, decades.
People lose patience, and in today's society the demand is NOW. ▪
Earlier I spoke about choices, and how we CHOOSE to do everything that we are currently doing. ▪
For success to happen, you must choose dedication and patience, everyday, until you're satisfied you've got where you wanted to be.

challenge + conscious shift =opportunity
With new born baby on board, these days I am pretty sleep deprived. When my alarm rang at 4 am on Monday for my 6 am client session I felt overwhelmed, tired and incapable. I had one thought in my head: I can’t do it, it’s too much. I wanted to quit and go back to bed.
As a life coach, I understand how disempowering and controlling “I CAN’T” thoughts tend to be and how dangerous it is to let them linger in our heads for too long. On that Monday morning, with some help from coffee, I put my energy into what I C A N D O 👍🏻✌️today. I shifted my perspective and I found some unexpected strength 💪. When I focused on what I am capable of and started taking actions my Monday morning turned out great: I had amazing sessions with my clients, I managed to squeeze my own 20 min strength training in between my sessions, I was busy, I smiled, I hustled and I felt strong and accomplished. Back at home, my great energy stayed with me: I spent quality time with the baby, I took my older son for a run and help him clean and organize his room, I was present for my family.
I made the best of my day and it made me happy.
We all have plenty of mornings when we feel pity for ourselves. When that happens you can brew that pity till you feel sick, powerless and guilty or..... you can consciously shift your energy and think of all the possibilities this day has created for you. You can choose to quit or to keep on going. It's your choice and you own it! Don't wait for your day to happen, make it happen........to your liking.
YOU control your happiness. Of course other places, people, situations, and things can be nice or fun... they don't make you happy. YOU do. Also, some places, people, situations, and things can be not so nice or fun... they don't make you sad or mad. YOU do. YOU make the choices. YOU can choose to be happy. 😊
Do you know that the words we use are very important? Our words reflect our inner belief systems and by now we use certain words & phrases out of habit. The challenge is to become more conscious & deliberate about your language.
Here are some phrases to start with that aren’t exactly compatible with the power of choice.“He made me mad.” “She is so frustrating.” “It made me so sad.” “I can’t help it, that’s just the way I am.” “I can’t.” There are many more but these are just a start. In case you aren’t sure what's wrong with these options here are explanations:
The 1st 3 statements are all about outside forces dictating your emotions. I don’t know about you, but nothing outside of me can “make” me feel anything without my permission. I choose how I will feel. You can’t make me angry, sad, frustrated or any other emotion unless I choose it. “I can’t help it. That’s just the way I am” sounds as if I am a victim of my character or personality. It may be true that in most situations, I'm shy but that doesn’t mean I can’t speak first to someone I know or a stranger. I can push beyond any perceived personal limitations if I choose. Whenever I hear someone say, “I can’t,” I usually follow it with, “Well, you could-you may not want to but you could.” This helps people understand that there's always a choice. (Of course if someone is talking about flying off a tall building w/out the benefit of some gravity-defying device, it may be appropriate to use the phrase “I can’t.”) However, most of the things we say we can’t do are things we really could do if we wanted.
There's always a choice. You may not like your choices but they exist nonetheless. Understanding there are options can help you feel more in control of the choice you actually do make. Remembering we have choices can increase our sense of freedom & general well-being.
Today get conscious about your use of disempowering words & phrases that take your perception of options & choices away and replace it with the language of choice. “I choose my feelings.” “I can do it differently.” “I could.” “There’s always a choice.” “I want to” or “I won’t do that.” (reference: Mental Health & Happiness)
What an amazing four days at convention learning, celebrating, and growing relationships! Being there helped solidify my "why" in this business ~ helping people realize they have choices when it comes to maintaining their health! Educating and empowering them with all-natural solutions to benefit and support their bodies.
Learning about essential oils usually turns into a great revelation ~ which then leads to a state in which we have enough self-confidence to maintain our own health without continuously consulting the conventional medical field. Yes ~ there are times when doctor visits and modern medicine are absolutely necessary, but it is a real advantage when you realize there are ways to be proactive with the health of you and your family!
If this speaks to your heart, if you want to be a part of an amazing company with a huge mission, then contact me to learn more. Don't miss out on what this company has to offer ~ whether you are just using the oils for you and your family or building your own business ~ you will be blessed!
Eat carbs! Don't eat carbs!
Eat fruit! Don't eat fruit!
Eat fat! Don't eat fat!
Eat low low calorie! Don't eat low calorie!
So much confusion when it comes to "Diets"! So many options to choose from & so much confusion!
I know how frustrating this is for everyone! Let me just say this...EVERYTHING IN MODERATION! EAT FOR YOUR GOALS! HELL JUST LEARN TO EAT!
The majority of the reason so many fail at their weightloss plans is that they restrict themselves. They starve their bodies of nutrients it has to have to function properly.
Learn to eat lean proteins, fruits in proper portions, veggies in abundance, healthy whole grains for heart health & include HEALTHY fats to your daily diet. It is then that you will see results (combined with exercise) & feel amazing!
Good morning!!! I am starting to plan out my Sept-Dec months and it's gonna be busy like many of you out there. Here are a few tips I use to stay organized and healthy: 📌Every Sunday plan out my weekly meals 📌Use my day timer/calendar to look over my commitments for that week
📌On Sunday and Wednesday prep veggies
📌Do laundry every 2nd or 3rd day
📌Drink my Shakeology daily - as it provides me all the nutrients I need to stay strong, sharp and healthy
📌EXERCISE daily - this is a must. Exercise releases endorphins (natural good mood enhancers) my hormone of choice 🤘
📌Learn to say "no" when dealing with -life's extras!!
📌Ask for help when I need it!!
📌Keep a POSITIVE outlook and mind - I read or listen to motivational speakers, mind changing people- just fill MY OWN DAMN BUCKET with good shit!!! Hope you enjoyed these tips!!

Shit can be hard: relationships, future goals, finding the perfect avocado. Often these endeavors require us to put in "the work" with a level of dedication and passion that takes everything we have. We do what we have to do because dammit, it's worth it to us. The potential end result keeps us motivated. However, if the "squeeze" you are currently in isn't worth the "juice" you are receiving from it, then you may want to switch to tea. Know the difference between when to persevere and persist and when to pause. (Shout out to my friend at @vitaldining for this bit o'wisdom and da bomb curried cauliflower last night.) .
Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA): a chelating (binding) agent added to cosmetics to improve stability. May be toxic to organs. Found in: hair color, moisturizers.⠀
I don't know about you, but I don't really want to use a moisturizer that is toxic to my very sensitive and vital organs.⠀
I highly recommend downloading the EWG Healthy Living App and scanning all your moisturizers to see their safety rating. That way you can make an educated decision on which moisturize to use.⠀

Some of the main reasons people choose to come to me for mental health and wellness coaching is because of a circumstance they find themselves in, a decision they need to make, and/or to get some clarity around their thinking or clarity regarding their emotions, etc.
When faced with any of the above, what keeps us stuck is our thoughts. If we could look into our minds, it probably would look like the chaotic mess of wires all knotted up behind our TV sets for the cable, DVD players, Video game players, speakers or sound bars, etc - one thought intertwined with another and/or connected to another. Who would feel clarity with all of that going on? The more we think about what to do, what direction to take, the less clear we become.
If I were coaching you, I would ask you about your thinking and the feeling that is connected to that thinking. I would ask you what action does that feeling drive you to take? Most of the time the answer is nothing – no motivation or not knowing what action to take. Then I would ask you, what is the result of your inaction, your being stuck in that thought and the presumed feeling of safety of inaction? Most of the time it is a lack of clarity. Your brain stays confused. Why? Because it feels safer that way. Most of us who are unclear, feel uncomfortable, and are hesitant to make a choice to act.
Here's what I know… When you make a choice to act, you might not feel clear. Most likely you will start second-guessing yourself. Your inner critic will start with the negatives. You will doubt your choice. However, I also know as you take one little step forward, as uncomfortable as it is, you will have started to shape your new path. And one baby step at a time will lead you into clarity and you’ll slowly become unstuck.
If you make the choice to take this step/action and need some guidance, please call me. I want to help. My number is 484-587-9922 – you can text me on this number too. Or you can email me at email@example.com ~Lissa
