Hello everyone, This is a long weekend. Can you commit to use it to change the direction of your life for good? I need you to do two things: 1) Go through all the daily posts and take action as advised 2) Be disciplined When you work on yesterday’s advice, you will open the channel to your inner mind through which vital information can be revealed to you for your success. You can only receive such revelations when you recite your goals aloud. Go and succeed. I believe in you #speaktochi #renewyourmind #intentionality #mindsetchange #speaker #trainer #coach
↟ I go through phases a lot. Sometimes I feel really connected to the World, like I want to shout from a mountaintop and share everything that’s on my mind and everything that I’m experiencing. —— Other times I climb down from that mountain top to the shoreline where I just want to huddle up inside my cabin, shut out the World and focus on herding my own goats. ——— Lately, I’ve been in that latter phase where I’m just busy getting my own fishing lines in order and trying not to pay too much attention to whatever is going on outside my little valley. —— These days, my goal is to focus on making sure I actually have something beneficial to give to the World, instead of just shouting anything from the mountaintop because everyone else is too. ———— #lakelouise #seclusion #intentionalliving #intentionality #essentialism
Hey Debt Free Community! You might check this out before you meal prep for this week because it saves me a ton of time and money and is my own little secret weapon as a compliment to meal prep, batch cooking and Zero Food Waste: . . This is a little preview on my latest YouTube video on my latest “Food Network”- I made 14 meals for our family of 4 (7 different meals x 2 with batch cooking) with just over $15 of pork that we prepped in about 1.5 hours last Sunday. And it was sooo good!! 🤤 . . Head over to my profile for the link to my YouTube Channel to view this video if you want to know what meals I made and how, and more about this and other strategies I use to save money on my food budget and a TON of time!! . . Have a great weekend!! . . ❤️ , 💰 = 👑

“Intuition is the treasure of a woman’s psyche. It is like a divining instrument and like a crystal through which one can see with uncanny interior vision. It is like a wise old woman who is with you always, who tells you exactly what the matter is, tells you exactly whether you need to go left or right. It is a form of The One Who Knows, old La Que Sabe, the Wild Woman.” - Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Read the most fascinating article on why “rich” people feel financially insecure. . Lifestyle Creep. . We are all guilty of it. We get a raise at work so we feel like we deserve more, so we go out and stretch ourselves a little further. A boat, a bigger house, fancier car, more monthly subscriptions, it all adds up and keeps us from our ultimate financial freedom. . This is how a couple making 500k feels poor. 500k!!! . Let’s make a better effort to cut subscriptions, save more and be more intentional about our spending. We can do this! No reason to feel poor when you make good money. .

Don't use social media less. Use it more intentionally. Follow people who Inspire and motivate you. Engage with experts you can learn from. Create genuine, positive friendships. Just stop mindlessly scrolling, complaining, hating and engaging in negativity and bitterness. #purpose #intentionality #community #behelpful #stayopen #alwayslearning #thinkbeforeyoucomment
At this stage in my life my focus is ...freedom, flexibility and balance! Balance during my workouts , more importantly balance of my time between workouts , family, work and everything else. Balancing responsibilities can be stressful but don’t ever confuse having a career with having a life. Focusing on a work-life balance helps you be more productive and successful in ALL areas of your life. 🌿
We all got something in us 👊🏽 give yourself more credit and take your focus off others opinions

☀️ a simple morning practice that I love doing is choosing a single card from a deck of affirmation cards to set the tone for my journal/yoga/mediation practice and/or my day💗 this morning I pulled 💜 KUAN YIN 💜 from @doreenvirtue ‘s goddess guidance oracle deck. Here is an excerpt from the message from Kuan Yin: ‘shield yourself from harshness by placing an intention to attract only kind and gentle life lessons and relationships. Transform harshness into gentleness by refusing to see anything but the shining light that’s within each person and situation. This intention begins with your relationship with yourself. Be gentle with yourself in all ways. Be happy, be kind, be sweet, but most of all be true to you.’
Do you have a STRONG enough “why?” I was thinking about this question because I’ve been really trying to delineate a clear, deep “why,” because mine sounds so generic and I have more than one. . . —> I want to retire with dignity. —> For my kids. —> I want to do the RIGHT thing, the smart thing, the thing I’m “supposed to.” . . I caught on to something Dave Ramsey does when he’s being sassy with people, but I love it and think it really has value: . . State your “why” and then ask “why” again. Answer, and ask one more time again. You know, like how our kids do sometimes and drive us nuts but really makes us think because it makes you dig surprisingly deep! 🤣 . . Example: my “whys” from above: . —> I want to retire with dignity. WHY? Because I don’t want to be broke or work until I’m 80. WHY? Because I’ve witnessed single, little old ladies living on <$1,000/month and how they have NO options. Aha— there it is. My real “why” is because I will eventually be stuck in an awful situation and helpless if I don’t get it together right NOW! . —> For my kids. Why? Because I want them to go to college and help with their weddings and help them however I can. Why? Because I am responsible to pay forward all of the things MY parents did to help ME and give my kids the best start possible so they can have a wonderful, functional, independent life, having had great mentors who actually TAUGHT them things that will keep them from pain later. Ahh... it’s making sense. . . —> I want to do the RIGHT thing, the smart thing, the thing I’m “supposed to do.” WHY? Because it’s what’s right. Why? Because it’s what my Heavenly Father has entrusted me with and is the promise of my best life. Yep. That’s a REAL GOOD why. . . What is YOUR “why” on this Debt Free journey! Take it and ask “WHY” a couple more times. Press yourself to dig deep- it has brought me SO much clarity! . . Cheers to a wonderful weekend! Why? Because we deserve it. Why? Because we’re ALL OVER THIS THING and working HARD! See? Works, right?😉 . . Love you guys! . . ❤️ , 💰 = 👑
Wondering what to do with your life? Unsure of if you're walking in your purpose? Use this graphic to help you! Sometimes we know what we should be doing but we can't seem to find the way to get there 🤷‍♀️ We think our past is too bad, too much time has gone by, we aren't educated/fit/spiritual/wealthy enough to do it. If any of this describes you, get a good life coach! Throughout life you have teachers, trainers, instructors, tutors, masters and mentors. Sometimes we need a plan and someone to help us get there. Find that someone! 👀 . . . . #overcomer #growthmindset #intentionality #awareness #lifecoaching #lifeskills #enlightenment #spiritualawakening #belikeJesus #lifecoach #writethevision #inpursuitofexcellence #womenempowerment #higherperspective #mindsetreset #spiritualhealing #innerworld #focus #purpose #goals #growth #hardmindset #unconditionalmotivation #lifechanger #womenofimpact #AshestoBeauty #lifecoachingworks #lifecoachinghappiness #coachlife #lifecoachesofinstagram
Two days with no technology?? We're kidding, right?⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Not at all—We just did it in March, and we even survived to tell you about it. 😉⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ It's been one of our goals for the last few years to spend just one weekend a year totally "unplugged." We spend every single day with our phones, our computers, our TV, our social media, our notifications, our background noise, our endless group text messages... We figured once a year, we could take a break.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ We haven't always remembered. Time flies. I think last year we forgot to do it.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ So months ago, we made a plan and put it on our calendars to escape Michigan in March and go explore Winter Park, Florida.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Unplugged Weekend was honestly a challenge, but we had a great time. On this week's episode of the #ConfidentCouplesPodcast , we're sharing all about it: what we did without screens, how often we got lost, and why we highly recommend it for every couple.⁣⠀ ⁣⠀ Just Google "Confident Couples Podcast" and look for episode "012: Unplugged Weekend." Tag your partner below if you think you could pull this off!
On this #financialcoachfriday , I want to take a minute to remind you once again about the power of intentionality. • • • Did you know that 95% of our behaviors are automatic? 😯 Humans are habitual beings. It's for that very reason that we need to slow down and focus on our intentionality. • • • As a financial coach, it's my job to help you identity those automatic behaviors - those habits - that may be holding you back from achieving your financial goals. • • • Be intentional about your finances. Schedule a coaching session. Let's work together to make intentionality a part of your financial plan. • • 《www.23anddebtfree.com/services》 • • #23andDebtFree #financialcoach #friday #intentionality #beintentional #nothabitual

Who else has a deep love for the sense of adventure? Stepping into adventure can look different for each person- that is a good thing. ✨⠀ ⠀ It is such a healthy practice to step out of the norm, and into new experiences that will stretch and challenge us to the point of producing new growth in us. ⠀ ⠀ What if we each, in our own way, pressed just a little further out of our comfort zone, into the unknown, and found ourselves there with our confidence strengthening. What an incredible world it would be! ⠀ ⠀ So what do you say? Set your intention on adventure as you enter the weekend, staying faithful and true to your personal growth by pushing yourself past your normal limits! 🙌🏻⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #faithfulfriday #empowerandembolden #womenempoweringwomen #purpose #passion #intentionalliving #intentionality #youmatter #entrepreneur #bettertogether #livingwell #lovingwell #lifecoaching #livingonpurpose #community #inspiration #empoweredwomen
Self Discipline is the first rule of all successful leadership. We are bound to meet serious obstacles on our way so we need self-discipline to get over them. So tell me how self-disciplined you are by showing me your goals book. The first to do so gets a prize. Now do this assignment: get a goals book and write in it all your definite major purpose in life and steps you will take to achieve them. Break them down into segments: Career; Business; Education; Family; Philanthropy. Then daily review them until you memorize the goals off heart. Let the challenge begin. The winner takes all #speaktochi #renewyourmind #intentionality #mindsetchange #speaker #trainer #coach

I've been contemplating lately....the idea of slowing down, taking time, and really experiencing life. To sit inside a piece of playground equipment while the kids play and just soak up the sun. To slow down and just BE. These are good things. In this "hurry up and wait" culture where we are constantly rushing to the next thing, the next thing, and so on, to take a moment to relax. Taking time to rejuvenate, talk to God, and let Him remind you of who He made you to be. These are good things. You know what isn't though? Laziness. Entitlement. I think sometimes we can take the "I deserve a break" or "It's important to relax and refocus" too far. Because it's a nice day, we spend it sitting in the sun instead of doing household chores. Then we do it again the next day, or two days later. Perhaps we give ourselves the morning off, and then end up continuing with the lack of momentum into the afternoon. Rest IS good. God even commands it. But we can also take too much rest, and begin to shirk our responsibilities. We need to spend our time currency wisely. We need to not steal rest and relaxation before we've earned it. It's so much sweeter when it's been worked for and is well deserved. ❤️ . #breakingdownboxes #boxbreakers #raisingboxbreakers #restisgoodforthesoul #workhardplayhard #workhard #restwell #slowdown #intentionality #mindfulness
This month in Wildish Collective we’re reading the story of Bluebeard, the archetype of the predator. You may know him by another name: the inner critic, core negative beliefs, self-sabotage... It matters not what you call him. Whatever name he is given, his tactics remain the same. Bluebeard is the force that runs counter to your natural, innate drive to move toward what feels good and right and nourishing to you, to follow your intuition, and align with your deepest desires. Every time I return to the fairy tales in #womenwhorunwiththewolves more facets and deeper layers are revealed, in the story and in myself. Lately I’ve been thinking about how Bluebeard manifests as distraction. How the Soul longs for us to be still and silent so she can speak our Truth to us as gentle whispers. I’m reflecting on how often I meet a quiet moment with a mindless tap on an app, allowing an ocean of distraction to immediately flood into my awareness... all of it a Bluebeard in disguise, luring me away with shiny things, further and further from my core Self. One tap at a time. Bluebeard is distraction. He is #fomo . His desire is antithetical to your purpose for being. He keeps you distracted, out of action on behalf of yourself. He is the opposite of your intuition, your deep inner knowing of what is good for you and what is not. Who is your Bluebeard? What are his tactics for keeping you small, silent, and in your place?

It’s always hard until you know your why? Until you know why you do what you do. -it fuels you on the lazy days -it gives you hope -gives you reasons to stand still and wait What is your why? No degree No promotion Can fill the void of ”purpose” It goes beyond your circumstances Beyond your issues Beyond yourself- that’s living ! #intentionality
I've been working on Easter baskets all week, and today I finished the #chocolatebunnies ! I have never been a huge fan of Easter baskets. They don't really have much to do with the actual litergical holiday, and I always hated all the junk that I've found to fill them. It's usually all plastic toys or candy that I end up throwing away in week or so. But this year I'm excited because I'm making #zerowasteeasterbaskets ! . (They still have little to do with the church holiday, but at least they're not wasteful 🤷) . . . . I found this cute bunny mold at #Aldi and it was only packaged in cardboard (amazing), so I made blue bunny bath bombs (mostly from stuff I already had at home) and then chocolate bunnies made from melted bulk chocolate. The baskets will also have some sidewalk chalk (in a cardboard box), and I'm reusing our plastic grass and eggs from last year to complete them. I can't wait to see what the kids think! Stay tuned for an official basket picture on Monday 🐰 #easterbasket #zerowaste #zerowasteliving #zerowastejourney #goingzerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #zerowastehome #lowwaste #nowaste #minimalwaste #lesswaste #sustainability #intentionality #plasticfree #wastenotwantnot #notrash
Happy #FreshStartFriday ! Often, we attribute a healthy lifestyle to the way we treat our bodies, but we have to remember just how important it is to include mental heath in our wellness journey. The mental strength you train through meditation is hugely beneficial for dealing with the stresses and anxieties that life throws your way. That’s why Fresh Start Fitness, Jenn and @wearesoworthy ’s FREE program created to encourage and empower women dealing with the transition of divorce, begins with meditation. Step out of the chaos, quiet your mind and let go of stress and anxiety with Fresh Start Fitness’ 10-minute, guided meditation session.

On this very ROCK we sat and talked about a dream. I had just found out this was even possible and on the month of my one year post brain surgery celebration I hiked a hike that months prior would have been impossible! That’s just it friends when life seems impossible all you have to do it SHOW UP... just take one day at a time and live in the now. We’re not promised tomorrow and we only have today. So what are you going to do with your RIGHT NOW? This amazing women witnessed a moment between two humans and you know what she did... she took out her phone and snapped a photo. She had NO IDEA how much that photo would mean to us. At a moment in time two paths crossed, and months later she shared the photo with me at the time I needed it most. I call this the “eye of the tiger” living life with your eyes open and witnessing its beautiful moments that present themselves in front of you. What’s something you’ve wanted to do? What’s stopping you? 📸cred- @sarah_westbrook
DELAYED GRATIFICATION.✨ . The ability to wait to get what we want – the mental challenge of avoiding temptation by using strict willpower and self-control, while knowing the delay will result in something better down the road.✨ . For the most part, delayed gratification is a good thing. I’ve used it for many things through life, but recently (at a church service at the start of #lent , nonetheless!), I saw the idea flipped.✨ . So let’s look at it a bit differently and forget Stanford’s historic marshmallow test.✨ . What if we take gratification to mean fulfillment in the sense of feeling like we are in control of our life. Is delaying gratification always the best course of action? Do we need to go through years of drudgery to reach ultimate gratification?✨ . Think: “I will take that vacation after I finish grad school.”✔️ . Think: “I will have children once I make partner.”✔️ . Think: “I will buy a house once student loans are paid off.”✔️ . Think: “I will go back to school for the job I love once I am more financially secure.”✔️ . I’m not saying delayed gratification isn’t helpful, and I can’t say I don’t use it regularly (because I do, in sooooo many circumstances), but it got me to thinking about some of the decisions I’ve made through the years and whether delayed gratification benefitted me.✨ . By locking ourselves into a pattern of delayed gratification (be it for the little things and big things in life), we may miss out on a good deal, and we may come to regret it later.✨ . Thoughts?✨ . . #delayedgratification #gratification #highachiever #hardworkquotes #intentionality #chasingdreams #comfortzone #masteryourlife #marshmallowtest #positivevibes #writersofinstagram #girltribe #womenentrepreneurs #womensupportingwomen #womeninspiringwomen #womenempowerment #womeninstem #girlssupportgirls #girlsinstem #stemgirls #communityovercompetition #womantowoman #strongertogether #creatingnewgenerations
Because I'm on a huuuuuuuuge Rocky kick lately, here's a little something from my new favorite old movie!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place, and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard you hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain't you. You're better than that! I'm always gonna love you, no matter what. No matter what happens. You're my son and you're my blood. You're the best thing in my life. But until you start believing in yourself, you ain't gonna have a life.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #copperndaisies #rockybalboa ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #keepmovingforward #lifehitshard #getbackup #startbelievinginyourself #startbelieving #lifehitshard #youweremadeformore #lifeisbeautiful #meanit #youareabadass #youcandoanything #youareenough #dreambigger #liveyourdreams #nothingistoobig #havefaith #youareamazing #everythingwillbeokay #intentionality #giftbox #giftboxes #giftsforher #giftideas #giftsforhim #instagift #instagiftoftheday #gifts 🎁 #giftfromtheheart

Mornings in this house are one of my top 10 favorite things. There are still a dozen unpacked boxes. 3 pictures are hung-about 25 are leaning against the walls. There are records everywhere. The dining room table is injured so there is a big hole where it will go. I’m not sure where the bathroom scale is, or my razors. But I’m so at peace here. #home #debtfreecommunity #debterinos #debtfreejourney #intentionality #budget #happy girl

SURVIVORSHIP IS UNIQUE TO EACH PERSON: TW: sexual assault. - This week on our Journal we’re honoured to share another outstanding submission by the beautiful Aude Langlois (@audelng ). In this wonderfully written piece Aude speaks about survivorship, denial, trauma, and all the in-between. - She has managed to put words to what so many of us have experienced but often find difficult to articulate; not fitting the limiting one-dimensional idea of what a survivor ‘should’ look, act, or be like. - Sexual assault has been so normalised in our society, to a point where many of us still struggle to even see that we were taken advantage of. Many of us feel that ‘it wasn’t that bad’, therefore we shouldn’t waste anyone’s time by coming forward. Many of us feel that we’re ‘too happy’ to have gone through something truly traumatic. - “To avoid being discredited, when asked about my abuse, I spoke about trauma and harm but rarely about the fact that I was actually fine most of the time. This heightened my sense of being a fraud, and I often got caught up in feelings of guilt because I did not know how to talk genuinely about being a survivor without worrying about being faced with judgement and disbelief.” - The LINK IS IN BIO to read the full piece; which I highly recommend. In case you didn’t know, April marks Sexual Assault Awareness Month - and I just want to take this moment to let every survivor know that I SEE YOU. You are not broken, you are not unworthy. Your story is important, your voice and truth matters. - Thank you Aude for your raw courage, I know it will inspire and comfort many people. We love you! - Africa💫 - #SexualAssaultAwarenessMonth #DEATHTOFAKINGIT - 📸 Africa by @melissaspiccia & @cami___nja

Besides our winter boots and the shoes my husband is currently wearing, these are the only shoes we own. I’m so thankful we can keep this little rack by our door with every option we can choose from.
Last week as we were wrapping up this photoshoot, a random beach-goer told me I looked beautiful, and gave me a very enthusiastic "Congratulations!" I'm already super awkward at receiving compliments. I blame it on my Japanese background and my mother who taught me to humbly deny compliments, not acknowledge them. But anyway, I digress. Add to my awkwardness the fact that I'm not actually getting married (what this girl had assumed), and I can't even recall what kind of response I was able to muster. :-/ Coming back to this in a minute. . In the last couple months, multiple people have commented on how long Tim and I have been together, and asked if we had any words of wisdom. It's funny to me because only he and I know how UNperfect our relationship is (as I'm sure most are), but also because even though we've been together a long time (14 years, 9 of them married), in the grand scheme of our lives, it hasn't actually been THAT long. . But for anyone who cares to know, the key for me, (in addition to all the typical stuff) - is intentionality.  Deciding you're going to have a happy, successful marriage, and manifesting it.  Prioritizing your relationship the same way you did at the beginning. What is your partner's love language? Every Friday we do date night, and even if we decide to save money and stay in instead of going out, we'll still put in the same amount of effort. . Which brings me back to these photos. Why did this girl assume that a couples photoshoot had to be an engagement shoot? Well in most cases, it probably is. But this is a perfect example of one way we can celebrate our relationship and place value on it no matter how many years we've been together. Does doing a couples photoshoot every year make a marriage successful? No, of course not. It's just about valuing it the same way you value and give gratitude for all the other amazing things in your life as well. . I'll end this ramble with my favorite quote that has helped me in our least happiest of seasons: "The grass is not greener on the other side. It's greener where you water it." So freakin' water your grass. ❤

《Let it be Easy》 Most of you already know I'm a huge fan of letting things be easy. Far too often we over complicate the simplest of things for absolutely no reason. We tell ourselves stories every single day that make life wayyyy harder then it needs to be. Sure, somethings in life are going to be challenging, but not everything has to be. Next time you find yourself in a difficult or frustrating situation I want you to take a deep breath and ask yourself, what if this was easy? Do your best to see the possibility of it and to allow the stories in your head to shift, even just a little bit. It might take some practice and you might be resistant (sometimes we feel validated by the story of hard – it makes us feel brave and special or it gives us a justification for playing small) but stay with it. Keep asking the question and see what happens. You never know. Life just might get a little bit easier. #illuminateyourvibe
