    #MondayMantra I’m Doing the Best That I Can

    Today’s #mondaymantra is “I am doing the best that I can.” It’s good to remind ourselves that in any situation, we are doing the best that we can. Remember to give yourself grace, encouragement, or kudos- not harsh criticism. If there is some room and desire to grow or improve, gift yourself the education or training needed, without judgment. Release the need to get down on yourself or someone else when something isn’t “perfect” 💖🦋 #theblessingsbutterfly #empowermentcoach #mantra #mantras #perfection #perfectionism #grace #encouragement #inspiration #selfimprovement #empowerment #chill

    #MondayMantra Create Your Own Magic

    The ancient alchemists were always searching for ways to create gold, cure diseases, and harness eternal life. They were all about the science of making magic. Today, we discover gold in our deepest relationships, cure ourselves through healing the soul’s wounds, and embrace eternity by seeing the pure, beautiful truth of our essence. We are the modern-day alchemists. We gave up trying to fit in, because we were born to belong amongst the dreamers and the doers. We shine light on our dark places and banish their shame with our love. We heal our hearts, and we send a ripple…

    #MondayMantra I am Safe to Embrace Every Season of Life

    Life is not linear, but rather it is cyclical. We observe in nature the changing seasons and experience the same. The new growth. The shining fullness. The gentle shedding. The silent slumber. Sometimes, experiencing these seasons in our lives and the lives of our loved ones comes as a transition that we may feel unprepared for; fear and sadness may suddenly overtake us in these moments of our growing pains, of our great expansion, of our letting go, of our final rest. But with faith and practice, we need not fear the changes in Life. We can completely feel them.…

    #MondayMantra Release

    This weekend I gathered with family to say final goodbyes to an aunt, an uncle, and a cousin. It was a beautiful day and perfect weather for a scattering at sea; the water was calm, peaceful, glass-like as the ocean gathered in their ashes. The flower petals swirled above them in a fluid dance before slowly sinking beneath. Memories of holidays celebrated together mixed with the white ash cloud, beautiful memories, painful memories, complicated memories, and then…release. Peace. On board, there are still squabbles among the Living. There is so much pain being passed around like a note in class,…

    #MondayMantra You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby!

    I took this photo of a fun directional sign on my trip to Norway earlier this year just because I thought it looked cool. 😎 Today I get to use it as the backdrop for my #mondaymantra and am struck by how TRUE this powerful affirmation is:   “I have come a long way, and I am not done yet. I keep learning, I keep growing, I am stronger every day!” Sometimes we all need to lovingly remind ourselves of how far we have come, just so we can celebrate where we are starting from TODAY. You can do hard…

    #MondayMantra I Love My Body!

    Loving my body is a daily choice, independent of my dress size or the number on a scale. Taking good care of myself can mean many things: commitment to moving daily, eating foods that nourish and bring joy to my body instead of pain, speaking kindly to and about myself, tuning in to what signals my soul is sending. This mantra can help you focus on loving your body no matter what size or shape you are currently living in. “I love my body and take good care of her each day.” How are you choosing to take good care…
