Man oh man, how many times do we need to learn this lesson? I know every time I allow myself to be pulled into the land of "shoulds," I regret it. .
So-and-so is launching a new program, I should get on it and launch something new. I heard you need to post to IG 4x a day to really grow your audience, I better get on it and start posting more. YouTube's lookin' hot these days, I better break out that camera and make more videos....
Does this ever happen to you?
It's so easy to get sucked into what other people are doing and lose track of what would really make the biggest impact on our success....doing what makes us happiest. .
Honestly, I used to think this way of thinking was total kumbaya bullshit. Now, I know it's the secret sauce to everything. .
Joy, desire, sensuality, excitement....those are the earmarks of creative genius. You can't, you just can't be your most innovative, energized and inspired if you aren't engaging in the delights of your soul. Any aren't we most productive when we love what we're doing? It just goes to follow that the cash will follow then as well. .
Find you happy place and spend as much time there as you can. It's your compass to purpose AND profits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Come back to your authentic self. Before all the “shoulds” came into play about who you’re “supposed” to be... ✨
"Ive come to beleive that persuing our dreams is as important to fulfilling our souls as it is to creating a better world. Doing so taps into a power greater than our own, allowing us to break free from perceived limitations. A path opens toward our highest self and a daring kind of spiritual freedom and connectedness thay could collectively transform the world. Each of us has a unique journey that is our own to claim. My hope is that by sharing both my inner and outer voyages you will be inspired to listen more closely to the yearnings of your heart, to face your inner dragon, and to decide to choose love over fear, again and again.

book Swell. 👐
Inspiration for my next kids art class... it’s a geometric elephant statue & a book about a geometric elephant 🐘 I saw the statue after I JUST bought the book. I think this will blow their little kid minds 🤯

We are currently undergoing a major energy shift and with the close of this year... I think this energy shift is very much well deserved.... With that being said now is as good as time as any to smudge/sage out your homes and places of business (if you can) if you have an overhead sprinkler system in your home or office please don’t do this. They actually sell liquid sage that I have used before and it works just fine. Or... you can sprinkle some ammonia down... (that’s another conversation) for the next couple
days... I will be discussing cleansing techniques.... so for today let’s talk about classic saging/smudging...
How to properly smudge.... I notice some people will buy a sage stick light it and say... why does my energy still feel so heavy... just like anything else.. you need to activate the healing property... when I smudge I like to say a prayer asking to cleanse the property, person or thing that I’m smudging along with tossing a little sea salt in the four corners of the room that I’m smoking out. I also like to open the windows while I’m doing this - that negative energy needs to go somewhere right... so I keep a window open so it can go out the window... you can open your front door too.. I personally prefer the larger sage sticks in the 2nd pic, but to each their own... #sage #clean #smudging #astrology #astrologylife #universe #healing #healingherbs #followyourheart #cleanse #spritualcleanse #positivevibes #vibes #goodvibes #healing #crablifeastrology
She is just the sweetest of all the sweet peas in the world😍.
Giving a special congratulations to a very inspiring and talented shining star for this generation on her win last night in the semi-finals with Dancing With The Stars Alexis Ren. 🎉👏🏽
I had the opportunity to interview Alexis on the Leaders Create Leaders Show! Her energy was infectious! She’s extremely tapped in, mindful and her view on the world at such a young age is remarkable. Not to mention, her dance moves! My bet is she wins the finals on #DWTS
Check out our episode with the link in my bio! We dive deep into what it means to be passionately curious and how happiness is what you make it. 🔥🙏🏾

The hits keep coming baby!!! Here’s the combination: 1 strict press + 2 push press + 3 split jerk. Last set of the night and I am super proud of myself nailing this at 95 lbs. Hard work most definitely pays off. I am a living example of someone who has beaten the odds more times in my 40 years on earth than you could even imagine. I know life ebbs and flows. Right now I’m on an upswing and I am enjoying every second, every moment, every breath! It’s not about what you got or what you look like... it’s about who you are and what you do! ❤️💙🧘🏼♀️😎 Celebrate small victories at every opportunity! #fitbytiana #nevergiveup #ganesha #followyourheart #warrior
Half the reason we feel so busy is because if we stopped ... something would happen. That something is a little bit different for everyone. If we stopped we’d lose our job, our security, our friends, our worthiness, our feeling of belonging, our happy life, our purpose. But if we stopped and really faced our fears, we’d see that it’s not true. Or if you actually realize your fears, they aren’t nearly as bad as you thought. Try stopping, be willing to see the truth, and then you can truly rest. . :
A side note, running can actually look like sitting and doing nothing too. We all have our ways of avoiding the stuff we’d rather not see. I guess the real trick is being present with your emotions. Realllyyy present without trying to change it. Give it a try, it’s so freeing!!! #befree #staypresent #faceyourfears #highvibes #restore #followyourheart #createyourreality #meditation

. I can add a few things to make vegan green bean casserole better. The follow your heart cheese was so good on it though! #followyourheart
And just like that, you know. • Do you remember that feeling when things aren’t quite lining up? When you’ve been running in circles around the thing your heart is telling you to do, but you keep doing the things you’re distracted by instead, the things that are pretend important? Yeah, that. Maybe you’re feeling that right now. • It takes a perspective change to have that moment, and that’s a hard thing to realize you need in the first place. But when you step back a little bit, see things a little bit objectively and from a different angle, they somehow fall into place. When these misplaced pieces suddenly click together and it all seems so simple and obvious, that’s when you’ve hit it right on the nose. When you’re heart does a little jump and your guts feel full of butterflies. That’s when you know what you need to do. Want to know what you do next? You jump.
They say life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
It sounds extremely cliche, however that dream life you keep envisioning will only manifest once you start doing extraordinary things. Extraordinary meaning having the courage to go after that job offer, business idea or making the meaningful connection that can open doors. .
Developing a personal brand has not only expanded my horizons it’s allowed for those coveted #goals
to come within reach. So on this #transformationtuesday
let’s transform our mindset to achieve greatness and work diligently towards that goal.
I may not know everything but can guarantee your dream life is just past fear.
