This is how I’ve been starting every morning, while my husband takes our oldest to school and the little one is still in bed. I get my oldest up for school, help him get ready. Once they leave, I start with a prayer, then move to the Bible for a few and then I move on to my current read, Crash the Chatterbox. It’s 15-20 minutes of my morning but it’s a game changing chunk of time. It’s a time to be quiet, reflect, to learn and just set the tone for the day. From here, I move onto my power hour.
What is your morning routine look like?
Our guest this week Erin @kismet_house
has an amazing blog and so much great design info. This image is from her post about how she keeps a clean house even with kids. She lists a ton of great tips to keep your home clutter free on a daily basis. Seriously great info!
What is one thing you can let go of or delegate today/this week?
It’s so easy to get in a cycle of doing, but when you take a minute to pause and check in with yourself, you will often realize that a fair amount of what you are doing isn’t nourishing to your life and often isn’t necessary. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So today, sit with what would nourish your soul and let go of one thing that doesn’t make the cut. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I let go of Christmas cards this year. We had great pics done, I had been working on them and it just wasn’t coming together. So I decided to let go of doing them this year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who’s with me on letting one thing go? Let me know in the comments with an emoji. 👍🏻
And if you want the next step... use that time for something that is super soul nourishing. 💛
❤️Teaching BABY Sebas how to pick out too many Mexican crafts on the beach!🏖 This year, for his third trip, he’s already looking forward to it!☀️ He even has Xmas 💰 to spend on them❣️ This is just our thing! ⠀
There will be times over the next month that I’ll be sitting at that same table working 👩💻- checking in on my accountability group, answering emails and requests for links, helping people get started on their 💪fitness and better nutrition 🍎🥦 journeys, posting MY own accountability (my successes and failures, and how I’m staying on track enough with nutrition to not undo all my work even with all the 🌮!). Those will be intentional times of work - planned and communicated to those I’m with. ⠀
And then the work will be put away, and there will be intentional family and 🌊 swimming and beach crafts buying time. ⠀
I want to work on something that I ❤️ , and that gives me the flexibility to do it anywhere 🇲🇽. When I became a coach, I told my coach and friend @happyhealthysarah
that my goal is to buy a place at THIS 🏖 beach. And to be there whenever we can. Time to put my 💰 where my 👄 is! Become by doing. 👊 Game on! ⠀

Why can’t they stay little forever! I remember when she was this small I couldn’t wait for her to be able to talk and walk. I’ve since learned to just enjoy every moment.
In every moment you have a CHOICE!
Yes, in every single moment you can choose how you show up, what you do, how you react and who you are.
And that also means that you can ALWAYS CHOOSE a new way, a new perspective, a new path.
PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY + CHOICE are two practices of leadership that I borrow from my time at @lululemon
OC and what I weave into all my workshops and courses.
In January I’m leading my SoulFlame Group Coaching Course where I’ll take up to 10 babes through the process of MAGNETIZING + MANIFESTING a life they TRULY LOVE!
Through 6 modules + 6 live coaching calls we move through a transformation to ignite your passions and set your life ablaze!
If you want more info - the entire curriculum of the course is available here
Or click the link in my bio to apply!
Here’s what one of the babes in my last course said:
“Kari invests her heart and soul in her ability to assist you in unblocking personal negative beliefs and helps you to rewire your framework in order to take action and make change towards a brighter future.
She has this incredible ability to tap into the root cause of your heartache and despair through connection on a personal level and always goes the extra mile to help you stay on track.” - Ginny

I've been under the weather lately. I've had cold symptoms for over a month. Yesterday I finally decided to get checked out. My cough was getting painful and my body felt awful. I was given a strong antibiotic (I haven't had an antibiotic in at least a year). Literally one pill later and I'm starting to feel human again. I still don't feel great, but better than I have in the last month. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
I'm thankful I listened to my body when it wasn't getting better on it's own. It's not easy for me to take a step back and rest but I'm doing just that today as I did yesterday. I also have to give a shout out to my friend @skye_elissa
for taking good care of Danica while I went! .
Don't forget to listen to your body! Have a great Thursday! 💖👊🏻

| Tip 3: FOCUS |
Plannen om te plannen. Ik weet het; het klinkt dubbel en daardoor misschien overbodig, maar het moment dat je het doet zal je enorm veel rust brengen.
Zoek een dag en moment uit waarvan je weet dat je tijd hebt om hier geconcentreerd mee aan de slag te gaan. Ik probeerde het altijd op zondagmiddag, maar achteraf bleek dat gewoon niet te werken met rond rennende kinderen of als we een dagje uit waren. En dus werd maandagochtend om 9 uur mijn moment om mijn week in te plannen. Kids op school en de eerste dag van de week.
Pak vervolgens je agenda's, to do lijsten, projecten, notities en, net zo belangrijk, een kop koffie erbij en begin je week in te delen: welke afspraken staan er, welke deadlines en welke to do's. En wat heeft prioriteit? Dit geldt natuurlijk voor zowel zakelijk als privé.
Wees ook reëel en flexibel. De ene dag gaat soms beter dan de ander; ga je dan niet focussen op wat er niet is gedaan, maar herbekijk je planning opnieuw en pas aan daar waar nodig. Het is uiteindelijk jouw planning!
Extra tip: Heb je nog een planner nodig voor het komende jaar? Ik geef één van mijn favoriete plannere (een Passion Planner) weg en je hebt nog tot eind deze week om te reageren! Bezoek mijn FB-pagina voor meer informatie!

This summer, my intuition was screaming at me to start a podcast.
And I was like but: * I don't know anything about podcasting
*but I would have to pay someone to edit stuff because I suck at that. * But it's so TRENDY, eww, following the crowd is so NOT my energy. * I don't have a mic.
So I shove it down.
This month, it was SCREAMING at me again, and none of THOSE BS excuses came up, but you know what did?
You don't have a podcasting voice.
You aren't interesting.
What would you even SAY?! And then I realized... GIRL WATCH WHAT YOU ARE SAYING TO THIS GODDESS.. I have 232456 messages for the masses EVERY DAY.
And sometimes I don't have time to livestream them all (duh)
And this keeps coming up for a REASON.
DO you know how fast I launched my podcast?
In a day. ZERO planning. On a whim. Like I do everything.
I didn't : * Wait for the mic to come in the mail (it still isn't here) * Wait for my intro to be done or stress over how it was going to happen
* Stop myself even with 233546 BS excuses of why "I am not good enough to have my own show"
and decided to just DO IT. Because I was too proud of my message not to share it despite not having #allthethings
It was easy. Because I decided it could be. Because it was fun. Because my podcast has never been about followers, sales, notoriety, etc.. it has always been about craving CONNECTION.
And so it is.
I did: * Record 5 episodes in as many days. * Learn how to edit things in 2.5 seconds * Outsource my intro which is now done and OMG it's SO COOL
So, ya'll can check out The Aligned Pretzel Show on iTunes and Spotify. Because of course, God/Buddha/Universe/Spirit Team already all got together and conspired for it to be on there within DAYS. (also, notice how I do not follow ANY marketing rules - hehehe)

You’ve always got your memories. Hold on to the ones that make you smile. Let the rest go... 😊@chastitydrobena
💙Take my hand...Steal my heart forever!!💙
This morning at 6:08am I saw this little man enter the world. I was blessed enough to witness my daughter change from the young incredible woman she has become, into the greatest role you can take on~mom.💖
WOW! You continue to make me proud every day @karson.hanna
It blows my mind that I have a new role now too. My role as "mom" never ends but now not only am I a mom to 3 teenagers & a young man~ but I am a grandma.😍 This will be an interesting, fun and challenging new role and I am excited! I know I will make mistakes but man how blessed can one woman feel!! It's been a crazy awesome week and I am just feeling so incredibly blessed as I drink my glass of wine and try and talk myself into my own bed after 3 nights. (Not only has it been ah-mazing but exhausting!)
You’re more than talented enough.⠀
Don’t worry about what those other folks have. Or how much they’ve done. Or how many people follow them. ⠀
It’s never about what ‘they’ do anyway. It’s always about what you do. ⠀
Whenever you feel afraid or insecure, it means that you’ve momentarily forgotten how deeply you’re loved. What a miracle you are. How far you’ve already come. 💫⠀
You are good enough.⠀
That’s a bonafide, irrefutable fact. One you never need to question again. ⠀

When you plan to have kids, you don’t know wth to expect. You get rewarded by their innocence, their genuine love, their cute little voices and sounds, the loving hugs, and their tender kisses. You, in return, give them the world.
When I first became a mom, I gave up my fashion career and never looked back. My first born, CiCi, started my new career as a “baker” because of her food allergies. Ironically, 5 years later, my 2nd kid would put a hold on this career.
Stella has her own set of food allergies: eggs, soy, and peanuts. I’m grateful that this time around, I don’t have to learn the hard way (ie: anaphylactic shock, swollen lips, gagging, vomiting...). Scary stuff! But it’s a new and different challenge for all of us, especially for me since I am nursing. This means those foods are off-limits for me too! 😱
As the new year approaches, I will be taking very limited orders so I can focus on my kids and family. They will only be so small for so long!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
for any order inquiries, and I’ll do my best to accommodate you. I’m already booking into Feb 2019 so get on it if you would like to be on the schedule! .

Getting into the holiday spirit, diffusing this amazing blend and counting down the days until Christmas!
HOME: an anchor, a port in a storm, a refuge, a happy place in which to sweep, a place where we are loved and where we can love!
My little #5BDanielTribe
! Oh how I love every day with you. You are my family, but mostly, you are HOME!
I think Austin said it best this morning, "Our family just went from 6 to 9!" ❤
💙Karson & Trevor did fabulous! Our grandson Treyson Ray Jones decided to come about 5 weeks early. I could not be more proud of my girl. She was and is Ah-mazing!! She fought for 3 long days to keep that little weeman in long enough for steroids to help his lungs. All are doing great but are very tired. .
Treyson will be living in the nursery for a little while but man he is strong! Breathing all on his own and loving snuggles with mommy & daddy.💙
