My future sister in law @empowertraining_ just launched a new project where she started her own podcast! She interviewed me for her first guest show where I talk about my personal heath story including challenges that have led me to where I am today. Since I’m doing back to back podcast posts I figured I’d post another photo of my back ☺️ Once again, if your heart desires go ahead and take a listen. I feel so happy to start the new year off with two podcast episodes! Thank you for all of the support from everyone over the years. :::::::: Podcast: Journey To EmPowerment by Emily Troxler Episode: Understanding Your Health with Sorrell’s Healing Arts :::::::: Link in Bio :::::::: 📸: @luke_askelson

<002> Drumroll.. please... I have beaten up my bad habit of going to bed late every night, getting less sleep and transformed it into a GOOD habit. For 2 years now, I am early to bed and getting at least 8 hours of sleep regularly.🥁🎯I have never before utilized my time better than now. Today, I’m more present in every things I do. 💯 I was left surprised while reading Arianna huffinton's @ariannahuff book 'the sleep revolution'📖. The real life examples (read accidents) mentioned in the book from many sleep deprived human beings were just hard to imagine. Sleep is such a fundamental and non-negotiable human need, yet we negotiate it for some short term goals. During my childhood, my grandma 👵 often repeated: “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise” by Benjamin Franklin. Only now I understand that she was teaching me the importance of building good habits. ✔️Empowerment is consciously building a good habit.💪🎊#journeytoempowerment . . Are you building a good habit? What is one habit you are truly proud to possess? . . #the100dayproject #100dayproject #goals #goodhabits #buildgoodhabits #empowermentis #empower

Lunch today! Sirloin over polenta, topped with red peppers, onions, and mushrooms. (I am trying to learn to not burn food.... trying). Did you know that polenta stimulates digestion, restores hormonal balance, removes excess water from tissues, provides the body with energy?? It’s super cheap and easy to make too!! And then some Prosciutto wrapped eggs for the fat ass in me... Lunch is my favorite meal of the day because I have the most time for it and it fuels me for the rest of my day! I get home too late and drained to make food like this... plus I can’t digest it before passing out haha.

TL;DR: I met my hero last night. @elizabeth_smart_official . . . Story time: When I was twenty, I went through prolonged exposure therapy, which is a super intense form of trauma therapy, in a last ditch effort to try to figure out how to live with the daily flashbacks of my childhood abuse. During that time, part of what I struggled with most was wanting to seek God in the midst of my hurt but just not quite knowing how. My God-send of a therapist got me Elizabeth Smart's book, My Story, because in it Elizabeth writes about how she continued to have hope in and seek after God during her nine months of captivity. . . . I don't have "famous" heroes. I don't really get excited over celebrities. People are just people to me. My heroes are the people that I interact with on a daily basis, but Elizabeth Smart is the exception to that rule. I clung to her words and her hope and her example of faith so tightly during that time of my life... and last night I got to tell her how much of an impact she made on my journey to find healing. . . . I didn't just get to meet her; I got to hang out with her, talk to her... see how someone could come out on the other side of trauma and make waves in the world, while still being just a normal person who likes to read fiction books and run marathons. I got to talk to my hero about her life now, not just her past experiences. I got to thank her for inspiring me to tell my own story, and I got to do all of that while supporting the cause nearest and dearest to my heart: fighting child abuse alongside the Children's Advocacy Center of Benton County. . . . Few days will ever be able to top 9/6/18 in my book. #empowerkids #journeytoempowerment #mystory #elizabethsmart #childabuseawareness #childabuseprevenion #childrensadvocacycenter #borrowmyhope
I am soooo insanely beyond proud of this girl. Tonight she delivered an incredibly impactful speech at the @childrensadvocacyofbentonco Cherishing Children Annual Dinner, and I was completely blown away at her bravery, vulnerability, and poise as she told her very difficult and personal story. She inspired and impacted so many people tonight, and I know that she will continue to use her story to fight to bring about the necessary change to prevent child abuse as well as to protect and empower children everywhere. #journeytoempowerment #empowerkids
Just spent some time planning out classwork... literally cannot function productively if I am not organized like this 😂 Finally found something that works for me though!! School can be super overwhelming on top of everything else in our lives but it all comes down to time management. My goal this semester is to work on my time management and get things done ahead of time! Setting goals for yourself is so important because if you don’t set any what are you working towards? Happy hummmmmp dayyyy 💪🏻
ATTENTION: Dinner tickets are now sold out! We hope that you are able to join us for next year's dinner. Stay tuned for updates. #JourneyToEmpowerment #EmpowerKids

. . [ S E L F – E M P O W E R M E N T D A Y 12 / 28 ] . . Yesterday I wrote about the “calm after the storm” with the help of Zephyr Lily flower essence. And, I wrote about using Palmer’s Amaranth for helping to get to the root of a problem. I’ve continued using those two essences today and, I took my time to really listen to my inner voice. I admit I got a little impatient at times, wondering if the answer would come. But, I would take my flower essences and just sit with receptivity. And, an answer came. . . One of my personality traits is to always automatically say, “Yes!” “Yes, I can help!” “Yes, I can do that!” “Yes, I’ll be there.” I often don’t check in with myself before committing to helping others. After, I have blurted out my “Yes!”, I sometimes later find myself regretting my decisions. If I could only learn to pause, to take my time and create that receptive space for my intuition to guide me, I could make more holistic decisions that include input from my whole being, not just mind my mind or my heart. When we can unite all our faculties, we can act with greater self-empowerment. Hastily committing our energy to others is a way of giving away our personal power. . . Even though this 28-Day Self- Empowerment Journal was my own idea, I rushed into it. Along the way, I realized I have squandered energy by not taking time to really plan and organize how I would execute this. I’ve had to improvise constantly along this journey. And, that’s OK. I’m learning. But, the next time I try to do something like this, I will hopefully be a bit more grounded. I need to learn to balance that excitement and passion I feel for people and things by, using my whole being and to really sit with it. Two flower essences that could help me remember to pause before over-committing are HOPTREE and INDIGO BUSH. These are two plants that grow in my area but, I will have to be patient until next Spring when they are blooming. Until then, I will just look at their images and visualize their healing properties. . . #healwithnature #flowerremedies #flowermedicine #floweressencetherapy #selfempowerment #journal #journey #journeytoempowerment

. [S E L F - E M P O W E R M E N T D A Y 1/28] . . For those who didn't see my New Moon Intention posts, this is the first of 28 days where I will be holding space for us to explore the theme of self-empowerment. It is an opportunity to learn, to share and to grow. I'm encouraging folks to do so through mini-journaling in the comments here. Below I will provide three talking points. You can choose one or all of them! . - Tell me about a time you felt self-empowered. . - What does POWER mean to you? . - What makes you feel powerful? . . I'm going to tell you about a time I felt self-empowered. I was 25 years old. I had graduated from university at the age of 22 and, I had obtained a position in a good company in my degree field of Environmental Science. I had been working there about two years when I beginning to feel jaded with life already. Why did I go to college? Was this really what the rest of my adult life was going to be like? Going to an 8-5 job everyday? And where was this feeling of financial abundance that obtaining a college degree was supposed to bring? . I wasn't feeling ANY of it! 😂 . I decided what I needed was adventure! So I began saving my money with the intention of quitting my job to backpack around Europe for a year. In October of 1995 I had saved about $3,000. That month the company I was working for got bought by a larger company. They invited me to come to their head quarters in New Jersey for a couple weeks for training. I went and, I decided to go explore NYC on the weekend and looked up a college friend who was now a botanist at the New York Botanical Gardens. . I fell in love with NYC! And my friend happened to live in an apartment in the Bronx with two roommates but, one was moving out at the end of the month and, they needed a new roommate. The rent was only $200 a month and I had $3,000 saved. I thought, "I can do this! I can live here! I'll find a job and I'll live here and continue to save for Europe." . #journeytoempowerment #flowerremedies #healwithnature #floweressences #findyourownmedicine . [c o n t i n u e d . . . ]

H A P P Y N E W M O O N ! . . And Solar Eclipse! . . This New Moon/Eclipse is a powerful one for me. My astrological natal Moon is at 18 degrees of Leo, which is the exact same degree of the New Moon. I can feel this new energy coming into my life and feeling so ready for it! I made a New Moon Intention today to host a 28-Day Journaling exploration around the theme of Self-Empowerment. Each day I will create a new post here on this page with prompting questions to create discussion, dialogue and sharing about self-empowerment and the challenges we may face in attaining a deeper sense of self-empowerment. . I have found that any time I'm doing deep soul work, I've benefited from being in a group that shares with and supports one another. I'm excited to walk this journey with you! . Throughout this self-empowerment journey I will be adding discussion about flower essences and how we can use them to support us in our desire for self-empowerment. And I welcome others to share their experiences and knowledge about flower essences as they've been helpful to them. . No knowledge or experience of flower essences is necessary though. The main focus here is self-empowerment! . Please join me! . #newmooninleo #newmoon #newmoonintentions #pathtoempowerment #journeytoempowerment #selfempowerment #astrology #floweressences #flowerremedies #flowerreiki #flowerpower #floweressencetherapy #findyourownmedicine #intuitiveflowers #intuitiveplantmedicine #healwithnature #healwithflowers #holdingspace #journaling #eclipse

#TBT to this chick, who thought she knew everything, but yet knew nothing. I use to think I knew everything..and every few years I’d get a slap in the face so I would know exactly what I knew. To this day, I proudly can say I know nothing I am constantly growing, knowing and learning. A continuous path of neverending growth that at the age of 21 I had not one bit of a clue who I would become by 31. I have probably shedded about 3 diferent lives. Being reborn each time, having to reinvent myself every single time from scratch. I like to think of it like Pizza dough. 😬 Every phase turning into another exquisite dish.. Life’s pretty Yummy if you ask me. At 31 I can say I am 100% sure I do not know who I will be at 41. But the common denominators seem to be sarcasm, jokes, and plenty of Love for more of everything.. and if you ask me, I wouldn’t have it any other way. 💞😘 #love #loveandlight #wisdom #agingwisdom #tbt #thursdaywisdom #growingpains #growth #loveyourself #loveyourjourney #everythingshedoesismagic #womenempowerment #empower #journeytoempowerment #women #happiness #happy #embracethegrowth

I am now a firm believer that we must invest in ourselves. I used to be that mom that would spend 🤑 without hesitation for the kids. But.. when it was for me, I would always second guess it. 😁 Before I started the fitness program, I would hesitate with the mental blocks (time, money, guilt, etc) now it’s the best thing I’ve done!! 🤸‍♀️ I feel confident, healthier, with more energy and I was able make some “me” time. 🙌 Ladies, invest in yourself. Do something nice for yourself. Your family will appreciate it. 💕 #journeytoempowerment #engineermom #momlife #mommyblogger #engineermom #metime #momfitnessjourney #40something
I finished book 9/30 for my 2018 reading challenge yesterday! Wahoo! I read The Power by Naomi Alderman - a thought experiment novel toying with how much of gender is nurture vs. nature, specifically in women. . I had to admit it made me pause on a few of my feminist assumptions about the world. 👉🏻Moral of the story - progress never begins with finger pointing. 👈🏻 I’m entertaining the idea of writing a blog post about it. Comment below if you’d be interested to hear my thoughts! #readingchallege #9booksdown #progressmindset #makingprogress #babysteps #newyearsresolutions #booksaboutwomen #femaleauthor #naomialderman #empoweredwomen #badasswomen #naturevsnurture #thoughtexperiment #journeytoempowerment
Don’t ever give up. Don’t let frustration knock you down or let fear stand in your way. Keep moving forward and don’t let people get in your head. Believe and it will manifest regardless how long it takes or how many tries it takes. Your only obstacle is your fear and when you take the plunge and finally succeed… the struggle will be all worth it. 🎉#journeytoempowerment #engineermom #momlife #mommyblogger #motivation #momgineer

My forth year celebrating solstice and my third in Time Sq. New York. This day was spent with my loves. We began the day with the bus ride to the city arriving in time to catch the next class, we enjoyed yummy food and most of all we didn't kill each other. Lol but honestly this is one of my favorite yoga events. Celebrating the sun, finding peace and inward strength in the mist of life happening is encouraging and humbling. #doyouyoga #easypose #journeytoempowerment #Solstice #2018
