We’ve broken down gratitude and time for you. What does it mean when you put it all together? What is imperfectly amazing? It’s letting go of the things that burden you and hold you down, and allow yourself to soar into the life you design – even when the real world gets in the way!
Schedule breaks/ time for yourself – I set up time every morning to meditate, move, review my goals, and get grounded before my little maniac wakes up. When I have that time, I can feel it all day. Likewise, when I miss it, I can really feel it. Find time that makes sense for you and your schedule – don’t force it. If you need help setting up your ideal schedule reach out to me.
Go on a date with yourself – It’s great to review your goals and mantras, but after awhile they may become stale or out of date. Taking time to check in with yourself to reflect on how far you’ve come, and where you’d like to go is essential to feeling like you’re accomplishing something, and not just operating on auto-pilot managing the busy all of the time. This is how you continue to feel inspired and motivated, and enjoying your journey because you know you’re in the driver’s seat
Connect with your subconscious beliefs – if you find there are obstacles all around you, there’s a very good chance that your inner beliefs are getting in the way. My method for tapping in to my subconscious is movement followed by meditation followed by journaling. Doing this in a strategic way has been so mind blowing effective to reveal my sabotaging beliefs, and use them to fuel my goals rather than stump them.
So there it is.
What is one thing you will do to make time for you this week?
Sometimes life takes over, and you find yourself on auto-pilot. You’re not really enjoying anything, you’re just trying to manage the busy. When you find yourself in that situation, take a step back and remember the formula: gratitude + time for you = imperfectly amazing
In this video, I discuss my recent example of using gratitude to save the day, and why it’s such an important practice that can powerfully change your mindset, and bring joy to your life.
Like draws like – When you focus your attention on the things you don’t like, you draw more of it. When you shift your energy to what is good, even when the sky is falling all around you, you will bring more of the good.
Practice makes perfect – The more you do this, the more instinctual it becomes, which means you draw more and more of the good stuff.
Don’t beat yourself up – When you catch yourself having a Debbie Downer moment. Don’t berate yourself, just change the thoughts. Tell yourself, that’s how the old me would think about this situation, but the new me is grateful for …
Grow huge gratitude muscles – At the beginning of your day, or at the end, or both, take a few minutes to find 1 – 3 things to be grateful for. Find things that apply to your recent day, so that you are constantly practicing how to find the diamond in the rough rather than choosing the same things repeatedly (like your kids or wine), because energy won’t fall for that.
It may seem like having joy, passion, and fulfillment in your life just happens. If you love it, you just make it happen, right? But, just like your relationships, it takes thought, strategy, and commitment. Yet it’s just as important and rewarding!

Part 1 of Creating Your Love Strategy
Find it! – it sounds obvious, but expectations can sabotage the process. There are different ways to open up your subconscious to learn your blocks – movement, journaling, meditation.
Part 2 of Creating Your Love Strategy
Make a plan – break down big goals into smaller chunks
Schedule it! – unless you create time in your life to work on it, it won’t magically happen
It’s your turn to share!
Have you found the things that light your up?
If so, where are you in making it happen?
Having strategy and accountability can be the difference between thinking about doing things and actually doing them. If you are ready to claim the imperfectly amazing life you deserve then reach out to set up a plan, and if I can help you

We all know we’re supposed to nurture ourselves, and yet somehow we still end up putting ourselves last. Old beliefs rear their ugly heads, and cause us to self-sabotage. What if I told you, taking care of you first can actually make things easier and more harmonious.
Watch the video to learn more and hear my favorite real life example (not putting on the mask in the airplane first 😉
Set yourself up for nurturing success
Journal or reflect to find out what’s blocking you from prioritizing yourself
Identify activities or ways to nurture yourself – you may be surprised at how simple it can be.
Schedule it! – if it’s not in your calendar, it doesn’t happen
What step will you take this week towards taking care of you, and how will it make your life easier? Share it.
We are wired for it, but somehow aren’t always part of connections that allow us to thrive. At one time, we were dependent on our community for survival. Even though that’s not the case anymore, having community still supports and propels us to the most amazing versions of ourselves.
I was recently craving a community to help me stretch my comfort zone. Watch the video for my story, and how community can support you.
Some ways to harness the power of community
Be open to collaborating with new people.
People that understand your circumstances, but aren’t personally tied to your outcomes can be your best supporters.
Be willing to invest in yourself.
Committing to a mastermind or coaching group not only allows you to invest in yourself (your biggest asset), but connects you with a group of people that are as committed to growth as you are.
Have trust in your community and yourself
Stretching your comfort zone for self-growth can be uncomfortable, and trusting the people in your community to comfort and guide you can make the life changing difference of pushing through your fears instead of bowing down into old habits
Who makes up your community?

Most of us don’t get as much as we should because we’re so busy. Yet a lack of it causes us to accomplish less, and we end up needing even more time to get things done. I’m talking about sleep, ladies!
Sleep is one of those things where quantity and quality are important. Getting enough sleep is just as important the quality of the sleep you are getting by taking advantage of the fire hours. Watch the video to find out more, and why I’m actually pretty good about getting enough sleep – it’s not because I’m a highly disciplined person, lol.
Here are my hints to get your best sleep
Make your bedroom a cozy sanctuary that tempts you to it every night
Get ready for bed, and get yourself in it by 10pm. If your current bedtime is much later, move up your time by 15 -20 minute increments over time.
Avoid screens before bed – phone, computer, even TV
What will you do this week to get better sleep? Share in the comments!
