Reframing: My Impact on the World

Rocky is BAE (Before Anything Else). Well, I say that Rocky is BAE when really I should be saying that I am BAE. My needs. My desires. My wants. I should come first. Making myself a priority has its challenges. I come from a family that prioritised the needs of others before self. This hasContinue reading “Reframing: My Impact on the World”

Embracing Cyber Stalking & Unhealthy People

In the context of domestic violence. This tugs on my heartstring (covert abuse). Especially after accepting another truth last night. Last night, I realized I had 12 visitors and 438 views on my blog. I’m a big data person. This is an indicator that my family is bored. They are looking for information to stirContinue reading “Embracing Cyber Stalking & Unhealthy People”

5 Principles for Self-Care

Oftentimes, I receive ‘random’ messages from people in my social network. They compliment my bravery to share my story of domestic violence.

The sky is the limit on comments that slide into myContinue reading “5 Principles for Self-Care”

Acknowledging​ a Season of Expansion

Today, I have an all-day meditation sit. Vipassana. The month has been filled with a number of shifts. I’ve stayed ahead of the shifts, mentally, emotionally, spiritually… and now it’s time to rebalance and make sure my cup of love is filled to the brim. Meditation, in general, has been so powerful. Meditating allows meContinue reading “Acknowledging​ a Season of Expansion”

Self-discipline is self-love

“Self-discipline is self-love.” My mornings are sacred. I spend time welcoming the sun, writing some words, making a phenomenal breakfast… or just allowing myself space to dance around my head (a majority of my day is dancing in my heart so time to dance in my head is quite special. I’m spending a week withContinue reading “Self-discipline is self-love”

My soul keeps attracting magical people

Breaking my silence about domestic violence was so confusing. Conflicting. Humbling. Empowering. And everything in between. Before realising that my entire external community was tainted, I honestly thought there was something wrong with me. I believed the lies that I was the one with the problem. I had moments of clarity in recognizing that I’mContinue reading “My soul keeps attracting magical people”

Honouring my existence on Father’s Day

Honouring people is easy. Celebrating people is easy. What’s not easy is coming to terms that sometimes the people we love are in so much pain that they cause us a great deal of pain. AND what’s very difficult is focusing on self-care to honour and celebrate me. In the last 2 years, I’ve writtenContinue reading “Honouring my existence on Father’s Day”

Reminder to stand in my Authenticity

I’ve wanted to start this a few times. At first, I was completely content just allowing the sun to shine on my face and walk through neighbourhoods of Chicago. Then I laughed because my mind was racing, but racing in a way that was connecting the dots. An ah-ha moment. Then another ah-ha moment. And another.Continue reading “Reminder to stand in my Authenticity”

Buckets of Rain and Soul Connections

As I continue to do things that are good for my soul, I’m presented with people in alignment with my heart. A few days ago, I was driving across the USA. There was a massive thunderstorm. Admittedly, I think it was one of my manifestations. A short while before, I was thinking that I shouldContinue reading “Buckets of Rain and Soul Connections”

The Universe has been noisy lately. All messages pointing to travel. I’m in the middle of building a hustle. My priority is to ingrain two 60-min workout sessions into my soul. My second priority is to build this new hustle… grind now, enjoy later. It’s all about consistency. The biggest lesson and reminder for myContinue reading “When a friend becomes family”
