#fbf to hot and muggy days in a van in #belize... Missing that sweet country and my Belize fam today. ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ฟ

"I believe forgiveness is the best form of love in any relationship. It takes a strong person to say they're sorry and an even stronger person to forgive."โ € ~Yolanda Hadidโ €

Feeling super grateful for so many things in my life right now. ๐Ÿ’œโ € ..โ € Grateful for my incredible husband and family. Grateful to be living in Minnesota. Grateful for our life and community in Colorado. Grateful for a career that fulfills me on all levels and gives me the freedom to work from anywhere. โœˆ๏ธ โ € ...โ € Grateful for all the people who have been supporting us through the past 2 years of our infertility journey ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ. Grateful for all of you who tell us you are praying for us to have a baby (keep those prayers coming! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ). Grateful for my health (because even though thus far Iโ€™m not pregnant, it could be worse!). And Iโ€™m grateful for our lives as DINKS (Double Income No Kids) that allows us to have a bunch of fun until this sweet babe decides to come along. โ € ...โ € Grateful to the University of Santa Monica and how that school changed our lives. Grateful for all the joy and love and fun that surrounds us daily. And grateful for so much more. ๐Ÿ’ซโ € ...โ € What are you grateful for today?

For those of you having a rough one today...just remember, that this too shall pass.โ € ..โ € This saying has been one of my favorites over the years, as it is such a great reminder for me that there is light on the other side of the darkness.โ € ..โ € There always has been, there always will be. Even in those moments when life felt super hard and shitty, it always passed. And joy and light and fun came back in again.โ € ..โ € My husband Jonny and I were just talking about this yesterday, how there have been dark times in his life where he didn't think it would ever get better, but he can look back on those times now and see how it did, and how he survived and life is so much better now.โ € ..โ € So if you are riding the struggle bus today, just remember that it will get better. And if you are unsure of how, or the next steps to take, reach out for help. Message me. Message a friend. Message a family member - ask for help. You are worthy of receiving it. xoโ € โ €

I am so proud of and inspired by this man! And if you want to be inspired tooโ€ฆcheck out his new coaching website (link in bio) and pay special attention to the โ€œMy Storyโ€ section. Here he shares courageously, vulnerably, and from his heart about his story with depression, suicidal thoughts, not feeling like he ever fit into our societyโ€™s ideas of what a man should be and more.โ € ...โ € It took deep courage for Jonny to share his story the way he did. And he did it because he is here to serve. He did it to break down the walls of what oftentimes looks like our very glamorous life, so that others can see what he has gone through to get here. He did it to help connect with those of you who need support and who know that there is something more meant for you, but you arenโ€™t sure how to get there. He did it to show that if he can do it and find healing and transformation through coaching โ€“ that you can too.โ € ...โ € Iโ€™ve watched Jonny over the past two years coach many of my clientโ€™s husbands/partners. Oftentimes my female clients will come to me and say โ€œIโ€™m feeling frustrated with my husband, because Iโ€™m growing and making all this change, but I feel like they are staying stuck and I donโ€™t know what to do about it โ€“ Elsie, will you coach them?โ€ And my answer is always โ€œNo, I don't want to do that as it crosses too many lines within all of our relationships โ€“ but, I want to put them in touch with my husband, because he is an amazing coach.โ€ โ € ...โ € And from there, Jonny has been coaching and serving so many incredible men (and a few women too!) and making a huge difference in their lives. He is kind, safe, intuitive, powerful and really great at relating to men who feel a bit lost in their lives โ€“ as he was once there and can understand them all too well. โ € ...โ € Since stepping out on his own and launching his new coaching practice, Jonny is currently offering free 90-minute Discovery Sessions, if you, or a man in your life is needing some extra support/clarity โ€“ I so encourage you to take him up on this offer.โ € ...โ € And if nothing else, read through Jonnyโ€™s story and website. It takes some balls to share so deeply at the level that he did โ€“ and I am so in love with him for

What are some of your favorite self-care rituals to set you up for the week? Let me know in the comments below!โ € ..โ € Mine include: meditation, exercise, and using my @passionplanner to map out my personal and business goals for the week...

Whaaa?! How is it August already? July flew by. Probably because for us it started in California, then we packed up our house in Colorado and moved to Minnesota! It was such a big, busy and super fun month. Here are our #onesecondeveryday from it!๐Ÿคฉ

When I first started my business, I wasn't sure how to hold boundaries. I would do trades with people - even if it didn't always feel like an equal exchange.โ € ..โ € I would offer more free sessions than I should have because I didn't know how to set limits around how many sessions I would offer for free.โ € ..โ € I would give away tons of business info for free that I had spent hours and hours on, as a way to try to be nice.โ € ..โ € I would say YES to most things, even if they didn't serve me.โ € ..โ € That included not honoring my work time and scheduling things throughout my day that took me off track from work, but that made other people happy.โ € ..โ € Can you relate?โ € ..โ € Since then I've learned how to hold really clear and loving boundaries for myself - even if other people don't like it. Because I know now that I am not responsible for their emotional reactions (and neither are you btw).โ € ..โ € If people are upset with me about my boundaries that I am holding, it is possible it is some sort of projection they are holding within themselves because they don't know how to respect their own boundaries.โ € ..โ € And I know now that it has nothing to do with me. But holy smokes do some people love to push back on them.โ € ..โ € I've learned to hold my boundaries, clearly and lovingly and I only tweak them if it feels good to me and is a win/win for everyone involved.โ € ..โ € Because of this I have so much more freedom in my life. I am emotionally lighter, I'm happier, I'm way more successful, I'm making more money, and I'm having way more fun than I was before when I was trying to please everybody and keep them happy.โ € ..โ € Because the truth is, we are only responsible for our own happiness. We are not responsible for anyone else's happiness - they are. โ € ..โ € How about you? What are some of your favorite boundaries that you hold in your life? And if you are struggling with boundaries in your life/business reach out to me, I would love to see how I could help support you. ๐Ÿ’œ

Throwback to when we made dance videos practically everyday in middle school. Except now we are in our 30โ€™s, hittinโ€™ the #inmyfeelingschallenge ...and we still love it (and clearly donโ€™t take ourselves too seriously ๐Ÿ˜‚). #kekechallenge #kikichallenge #inmyfeelings

Still feeling happy after an amazing weekend at the cabin with our family that consisted of time with my Cousisters, baby nephews, blueberry picking, eating all the blueberries, biking, swimming and being surrounded so much green and beauty. So grateful for this place and these people. ๐Ÿ’œ

How often have you not attempted something because you are afraid you wouldnโ€™t know how to do it? Or what steps to take?โ € ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโ € I know that I have. And that because of this, Iโ€™ve held myself back too many times to count... โ € ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโ € However, a few weeks ago I was at a spiritual conference, and they kept repeating this phrase โ€œThe Willingness to do, gives the Ability to do.โ€ And it resonated with me so much. โ € ๐Ÿคฉโ € I was reminded that if I am Willing, and truly have the Desire and a deep willingness to do....that the Ability to do what I need to will show up, and Iโ€™ll figure out what I need to along the way.โ € ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผโ € And, I also know that Iโ€™ve been given the ability to do so many times throughout my life...with my business, marriage, Masterโ€™s program, heath, international travel, etc...โ € ๐Ÿค—โ € So, if there is something that you really want to do, but arenโ€™t sure how to get there. May this post help remind you that if you are willing, the path forward will appear. You just gotta trust it out....โ € ๐Ÿ˜˜โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #yourwordsarepowerful #wordstoliveby #personaldevelopment #dowhatyoulove #goalgetter #truthbomb #justboss #entrepreneurship #creativeliving #ladyboss #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifecoachtips #womenempoweringwomen #liveyourbestlife #bossbabe #lovewhatyoudo #bosslife #beyourownboss #creativeliving #lifestyleblogger #getwhatyouwant #excuses #nomoreexcuses #goaldigger #womanprenuer #womenwhohustle #girlswhohustle #girlswhotravel #laptoplifestyle

Coaching from my cabin today. Itโ€™s my favorite place in the world to work, because the only other noise other than me talking with clients is that of the wind, chimes and birds. And then in between sessions, we swim.... #cabinlife #lifecoach #laptoplifestyle #createyourlife

As a welcome to Duluth present my dad surprised Jonny and I with fat tire bikes! (Well, I knew about them....but had to keep it a secret from Jonny from April - now!). Tonight we went on our first ride together and it was amazing. ... Duluth has the best bike trails in the US and over 100 miles of trails that stretch throughout the city - we canโ€™t wait to ride them all. ... Duluth friends, if you have recommendations for trails, etc let us know - we want to ride with you!! ... And thanks Dad for the bikes, we are so grateful and excited for all that this opens up for us here!! ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿšฒ ๐Ÿ’•

Iโ€™m a few days behind on posting this, because itโ€™s been a busy few days!! But here is my June #1secondeveryday! It was a super fun and busy month, and incorporated so many of my favorite things and favorite people. And it was the last full month of our time as FoCo residents. ๐Ÿ˜• Also as I watch this video, it makes me feel like I played every single day and didnโ€™t work this month. But the truth is that I worked a ton and grew my business a lot this month....AND apparently played like crazy!! #winning

The best advice someone ever gave me was "Listen to your heart, for it won't lead you astray." โ € ...โ € I've followed that advice over and over again, and it has never lead me astray. โ € ...โ € NOT listening to my heart has lead me down the wrong path for sure...but listening to my heart opens me up to so much freedom, grace, abundance and joy in my life. โ € ...โ € If you are in a sticky situation in your life, take some time to slow down, listen inward and see what your heart has to say...my guess is that it will lead you to your truth. xoโ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € #yourwordsarepowerful #wordstoliveby #listentoyourheart #dowhatyoulove #hearttruths #truthbomb #justboss #entrepreneurship #creativeliving #ladyboss #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifecoachtips #womenempoweringwomen #liveyourbestlife #bossbabe #lovewhatyoudo #bosslife #beyourownboss #creativeliving #lifestyleblogger #getwhatyouwant #excuses #nomoreexcuses #goaldigger #womanprenuer #womenwhohustle #girlswhohustle #girlswhotravel #laptoplifestyle

Living Room swings are so much fun. Note to self, add this to vision board for my dream house. ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Feelings follow thoughts...it's not the other way around. โ € ...โ € Meaning, if you are choosing to think about an issue in your life as "this is hard, shitty, terrible, etc." then the feelings you are going to experience are ones of feeling shitty, terrible, exhausted, etc...โ € ...โ € Yet, if you choose to relate to it differently, it's possible you will have a different response. โ € ...โ € Because the meaning you give to something = the emotions that you will feel about it. โ € ...โ € So instead, try asking yourself "How can I use what is happening to me for my learning, upliftment and growth?" And then from there, it can support you to having more empowered thoughts which = more empowered feelings.โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € .โ € โ € โ € #yourwordsarepowerful #wordstoliveby #personaldevelopment #dowhatyoulove #goalgetter #truthbomb #justboss #entrepreneurship #creativeliving #ladyboss #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifecoachtips #womenempoweringwomen #liveyourbestlife #bossbabe #lovewhatyoudo #bosslife #beyourownboss #creativeliving #lifestyleblogger #getwhatyouwant #excuses #nomoreexcuses #goaldigger #womanprenuer #womenwhohustle #girlswhohustle #girlswhotravel #laptoplifestyle
