Recognizing that we actually have a choice in how we show up, how we want to experience life, and how we want to be is one of the greatest lessons of my life so far. In fact, we all have inner leaders looking to emerge. We may unconsciously react to situations/others and pick up psychological weight, BUT we always have a choice in what lens we look through as we decide our perspective and what is next. We can decide to stay stuck or keep our status quo of behavior. We can decide to set down the weight of shame and try something different. We can decide to look inside, to question the knee-jerk, to be mindful. We can choose to discover something about ourselves and allow it to inform how we want to be and/or what we want to do the next time. We always have a choice.

Today is one day. We each have a choice to play it small or stay true to ourselves and show up fully and with our unique brand of brilliance. When the urge strikes, be silly. When a mistake is made, speak with compassion. Dare to speak the truth of what YOU need today. Shine bright, mama. Trust your intuition to live your life in color too. Xoxo

Before I had children, I noticed a good friend asking her son β€œAre you being kind?” It is something that stuck with me, and something I ask my own children now when guiding them to be more mindful of their behavior. Growing up, I knew what being nice was, and thought the word β€œkind” had the same definition. I now have a fuller, richer appreciation for the distinction. Being nice is tantamount to acting a certain way or saying something to someone because you think it is what they want: placating. Being nice may even be felt by the receiver as an act of condescension. However, when our action stems from a compassionate place within our being, and a desire to honestly share our love for nothing more than the purpose of ascension and connection – that’s kindness. There’s a higher power flowing through, and past the ego. May we all be open to kindness today, to ourselves and to others.

I think about how simple and sweet that model was for me, @mereokes, and am forever grateful to have paid attention and tucked it away. xoxo

So hard for our egos to let go of the need to know, what to expect, what will happen, why. It's all part of the magic, and we don't actually need to know why to give in to the flow of our lives. Personally, when I can remember this, life is much more enjoyable.

I have always loved Audrey. Her compassion overflowed for the world around her. Here she models the importance of self-care. It is essential for parents to care for themselves in order to have the energy and patience to care for our families. And in doing so, we teach our children to one day parent themselves. How do you refuel?

Trust God and the universe to send you the lesson you need exactly when you need it. Just like when we positively reinforce the good behavior of our kiddos, they continue to behave well. When we criticize, we invite more bad behavior. If you believe good things will happen, your energy shifts and you attract good things. When we believe in good things and the inherent goodness of people, we feel good and see more of it show up around us each day. When we believe in our children and love them for who they are, regardless of their behavior, they want to have good behavior and learn from their mistakes. βœ¨πŸ™πŸ» πŸ’ž

This morning my 3 year old kicked his shoe through the dock posts and into the swamp. The same swamp where visible snapping turtles and alligators live. At first I thought - goner. But then if I only had a pool net. It was a long bike ride to the neighbor's, back up to the swamp, and home again, BUT the look on his face when I rescued the shoe was so worth it. It made me realize how even the littlest things when done with love mean so much to our kids. Next time you feel inadequate or that you aren't doing enough to be a good mom, ask what impossible standard you are putting on yourself and what your child really needs from you. It's usually a lot simpler than we make it out to be. 😘

Oh yeah baby. Big shift for me once I realized how much we can learn about ourselves through the experience of our lives, and that we often learn more when things don't go as planned. So go ahead and fail! I dare you not to learn something of value. Our kids sometimes are quick to point out when we get things wrong, and I believe one of the greatest gifts we can give them is modeling that sometimes parents make mistakes too and can look at what we have learned. 😜#selfcareseptember #selfcare #wisdom #drawing #art #lifecoach #workingmom #consciousliving #lifeartist #arttherapy
Self-care isn't selfish. It is essential. We have to take care of ourselves to show up fully for others. πŸ˜‡

I’ve been in a funk lately.  I won’t lie and say I’ve been so busy living this great life I’ve created, that I’ve not had time to tweet or post tips and inspiration for Self-Care September the past few days (as was my intention at the beginning of the month). While I have been busy, and I have created a great life for myself, the real truth is that I have also been a little down. The harder I try to fight the blues away, the more effort it requires.  I wear myself out trying to keep my shadow from joining me in the ring. In my latest blog, I talk about how appreciating our shadow can be a radical act of self-care. πŸ’–πŸ’ͺ🏻 #selfcareseptember #selfcare #happyheart #innerpeace #lifecoach #inafunk #shadowside #gratitude #practice #overwhelmed #wornout

Kids are great reminders for us to be silly, make messes, and be willing to poke fun at ourselves. This one was a hard lesson for me, and I'm still learning, that there's so much more learning available in the messiness of our lives. #selfcare #selfcareseptember #besilly #learning #lifeisajourney #happyheart #innerpeace #workingmom #consciousliving
Our beliefs are intricate systems. As you work through your own unpacking and self discovery, remember to be gentle with yourself. You may recognize something that is no longer serving you, and make a choice to  leave it behind in service of your life's purpose. Stand in your magnificence! You are so worth the process of discovery. #selfcareseptember #selfcare #happyheart #innerpeace #love #magnificence #lifepurpose #lifeartist #choices

I spent years being a pleaser and operating on an empty self love tank. Subconsciously proving my worth every day. Took me years to uncover, and I'm still excavating, but I am learning to look now with curiosity rather than judgment or self pity. Spelunking that once was dark and scary is starting to get fascinating. 🌚

Let your soul be your guide.

"She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way, she adjusted her sails." Yes! Life is life. The magic is in what perspective we choose to hold and/or what action we choose to take. When we drop our expectations of what must happen in order for us to be happy, we can begin the work of self acceptance and tap into our own resourcefulness. #selfcareseptember #selfcare #happyheart #innerpeace #lifecoach #lifeartist #faith #consciousliving #workingmom #powerofnow #open #flexible #present #selfacceptance #resourceful #peacock #drawing #art
My go to refuge when the kids begin bickering and the noise level is WAY TOO LOUD. Out in the grass. Bare feet. Feel the earth, take a few deep cleansing breaths, and listen to those cicadas.

My 3 year old and I had another alligator sighting on our bike ride this morning. I love the curiosity of children. What's that thing on his back? Where does he go at nighttime? What does he like to eat? Does he have a tongue? Is he a daddy? I hope he never loses this. #curiosity #kidquestions #becurious #questioneverything
Saw this little bunny this morning. He was patient and posed while I got my phone out to snap his picture.

Working moms: you can have a fulfilling home life and career AND create space for yourself. I used to rush around like my hair was on fire, worrying about the kids, taking care of others at work, running through the countless to-dos in my mind and berating myself for forgetting to schedule that dentist appointment again. I had completely lost my spark and was going through the motions of my life rather than living it. It wasn't until I slowed down and practiced some #selfcare, did some inner work, and began loving myself, did my self-doubts and busyness began to melt away. I began to have more energy for others and my mind began to quiet. Create some space for joy and love your life!

"Once she stopped rushing through life, she was amazed how much more life she had time for." (Unknown) Oh how this rings true for me! Ironic how slowing down has allowed me to make a greater impact.

Found this beautiful bridge on our after dinner bike adventure this evening. It was so peaceful and quiet among the birds and the bugs of sunset. Even the kids got quiet to listen and soak it all in. As I got quiet, I thought of all the bridges I've crossed in the past year and where I am now. I would still be stuck and miserable if I hadn't crossed the most scary ones. So grateful I did anyway.
