Be Authentically You

I wish I could clearly explain what it means to your vision of wholeness when you connect with someone who helps you find the very best version of yourself. I’m so blessed to have that in my husband, but also in finding a goddesspreneur who has helped me to express myself and live my truth authentically. For far too long I lived with masks because I let my interpretation of what society expected guide me. It was realized this week that I’ve finally come into my own. My home. My spirit. My truth. I’ve been living it for quite some time but to actually realize it and remembering witnessing its birth…. well, it’s more than monumental. It’s changed me. Yes, the change, but realizing you’re in it, that you did that (with enormous help), and that what once felt impossible is now in living color…. well, Whoa!! Just whoa.

After my perfectly poignant tarot reading the other day, I was gifted the following tarot experience in a private message. I’m sharing it here in its fullness because I think it’s so important for all of us to realize. I am finally at a place on my spiritual and emotional journey that this is how I live currently. BUT it wasn’t always the case (and still need reminding). I once felt lost and hopeless. I was broken and had all but given up. My message is clear in this matter and in relation to my last post (another words a very important message that can’t be mentioned often enough) is to don’t ever give up. Whatever image you hold in your mind for your life, your well being, your future, you can hold in your hand, your heart, your life. I promise. Just by not giving up.

TAROT  DREAM COME TRUE- Your dreams are coming true because you stayed true to your hearts desire.

Time for you to relax and take in all of the amazing events that have happened to you over the last year or so. Look back and contemplate how fast things shifted for you when you made the decision to be true to yourself and to listen to the call of your soul (WOW). Your dreams are of your soul. Your dreams are unfolding faster than ever before. Congratulations for staying true to yourself, for believing in your dreams, and for overcoming all obstacles that were in your path. This card comes to you today to remind you to keep moving forward toward the life of your dreams. It has not been an easy journey, but you are finally beginning to see how everything is connected and how all of the adversity that you faced was a part of you facing your fears and learning new ways to handle your challenges. You have made sacrifices, you have taken risks, you have faced and overcome many trying times, and you never gave up. Do not forget to take note of all that you have been through to get to this moment in time. You are learning that intention and faith combined can move mountains (WOW). When you come up against a period of slow movement, it is important for you to remember all that you have accomplished. Your dreams are unfolding because you believed in the impossible. Remember how you got here and use this information to remember all that you have accomplished. Your dreams are unfolding because you believed in the impossible. Remember how you got here and use this information to create even more beautiful possibilities for yourself.

Words they couldn’t emphasize enough…. remember, believed, accomplished, dreams, overcome, forward, possibilities.

Sigh….mmmmm… please believe this for yourself. If you aren’t where you want to be, you can be. You can be.


Are You Motivated?

I think about this all the time, but I’ve never written about it. I mean, its not that thrilling of a topic, but important all the same. I mean, for real, who doesn’t need a good little kick in the pants once in a while? Or if you’re me… a lot of the time.

How on earth do people work from home, stay motivated and become successful? It’s not easy, let’s just say that. Holding yourself accountable sounds dreamy, but there is a lot to be said for being your own boss and not having a bossy boss that makes sure you do your shit.

Let’s face it, when you’re getting the kids lunch, taking the dog for a quick walk, or answering the door for UPS it’s not easy to jump right back into the flow of business emails, calls or writing. Distractions are different when set in a home office vs a business office. I mean, often times I’ll prefer to stuff my face, binge watch a show, or crawl back into bed rather than do any work… right?! So how on earth do you keep the wheels oiled and turning to become a success from home?

One suggestion I received was to set a schedule. I love this idea in theory, but with four kids, in summer, it’s not even a little bit of a reality… so similarly I set weekly goals. I like to do a set number of responsibilities each week to keep things progressing and have a week to do it. Because I’m not a fan of not reaching my goals, this works for me and keeps the stress low by not trying to keep a schedule.

This is going to sound silly maybe, but I am by far more productive if I get up, shower, get dressed and ready myself for the day. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t put on dress pants, pumps, or even makeup, but taking care to care for myself is definitely more encouraging to be productive then if I don’t…. by far.

Another thing that is kind of nice and spices things up, is to get out of the house to work once in a while. I can’t do it too often, but I love copping a squat at the local coffee shop sometimes to pound the key board. Well, and a midday cup of Joe never hurt either. 😀

I love to engage with my teammates and coworkers via phone and messaging even though I’m home in my home and they’re home in their home. Because, truth be told, it can get lonely working from home. Throw some interest in your day by goal setting or dream planning with someone you’re working with. I find a pep in my step when I speak about my plans in life or even for that day with a fellow goal digger.

Okay, this is the biggy… you must be doing something that you’re passionate about or something that allows you to do what you are passionate about. It’s nearly impossible, I would think, to motivate and/or not get distracted if what you’re doing is mundane or doesn’t speak to you. Life’s too short for all of that nonsense anyway. If what you’re doing doesn’t get you excited then keep looking. My gig is so easy to work, usually, because it is changing my family’s future and that thrills me to no end! Look for that!
