    My Word of the Year: Elevate

    Happy New Year, Loves! My word of the year choice for 2017 is “Elevate” and I’m incredibly excited for it. Like, Damn! My intention for the year moving forward is to elevate women and girls around the world, starting with myself.  I will shine a halo around our achievements, and highlight opportunities for more. I will choose to elevate the conversation and lift each other up in a world that tries to tear us down. I will pick myself up and hold my strong hand out for you, too.  I will gravitate towards those who are also intent on uplifting,…

    Tomorrow is the new moon, and with it comes the energy & symbolism of ending & beginning. As we draw near to the end of another calendar year, there is no better time to pause, observe our place, and prepare for the next phase. You have access to every eternal truth woven within your own beautiful soul! Loves, I encourage you to take some time today to reflect on where you are in the cycle of change. Observe. Honor your place, without judgement.   There is a continuous series of beginnings and endings for every life. Though there is often…

    #MondayMantra I Am Creating A Beautiful Life

    Mantra: I Am Creating A Beautiful Life The work that we do each day to actively, intentionally shift our mindset from negative, doom-and-gloom, worst case scenario to a more positive, bright-and-shiny, best possible outcome is powerful and scientifically proven to create new neural pathways in our brains. It is true that what we think about and focus our attention on is what shapes our reality, and by being open to the possibility of good things happening in our lives we literally create space in our minds for positive energy to grow! Though we may not be able to control external…

    #MondayMantra Is This What Love Looks Like?

    Today’s Monday Mantra is a question instead of an affirmation or a statement. It’s the most important question you can ask yourself: Is this what Love looks like? Because we are created from Love, fueled by Love, and searching our whole lives to connect with Love, it’s the single most important truth to live out each and every day.  It’s the most important question to ask ourselves whenever there is doubt about our thoughts, our actions, or choices- or following the actions of others. Is this what Love looks like? Live Love. Show Love. Demonstrate Love. Speak Love. Support Love.…

    Proud Mama Moment

    Y’all, I just love my son so damn much! In 29 years he’s never really asked for “stuff” for birthdays or Christmas gifts. Maybe it’s because we were SO POOR and scraping to get by for so many years. Maybe it’s because he’s just a beautiful human despite all the odds stacked against him. All I know is, he’s hella hard to shop for and I couldn’t be more proud: I love you, Joe! ❤️ Would you like to join my private email list?

    #FridayFaves : Tapping, Money, and Mindset Awesomeness with Nicole Lewis-Keeber

    I’m SUPER STOKED to share about someone who has almost always been a part of my life, but through the magic of Facebook we connected as adults and realized that we have an even deeper bond than just our family ties.  My interview today is with my beautiful, brilliant and amazing cousin, Nicole Lewis-Keeber.  YAY!  She and I grew up on opposite coasts and only saw each other very sporadically as kids, on the few occasions our family was able to travel from Southern California back to my father’s roots in North Carolina.   Here’s a snapshot of Nicole and the…
