Happy Friday!!! 🍁

When I was 15 years old, I created my first positive affirmation for myself when I attended a Teen @insightseminars (side note: this is probably the best investment that my parents ever made for me when I was a teenager was to send me to a Teen Insight Seminar...if you have a teen - I can't recommend enough that you check this out for them.)⠀ ...⠀ My affirmation at 15 was "I am loving, courageous and disciplined and understanding with care towards myself and you."⠀ ...⠀ I said this everyday for years and it helped to support me so much in my life, especially through those tough teenage years.⠀ ...⠀ About 3 years ago, I finally updated my affirmation and it is now:⠀ ...⠀ "I am free and living the life of my heartfelt dreams!" ...⠀ Affirmations don't have to be complicated, long, or include ALL the things - actually the simpler the better. Keep em heartfelt and easy to remember so that you are drawn to saying them.⠀ ...⠀ This question here of "The Positive Affirmations I'm telling myself today are..." is a question from the Purpose Path Journal. There are 4 different questions a day that you answer as a way to bring more clarity, love and purpose to your life. You can download it for free at the link in my bio.⠀ ...⠀ But before you do that - I want to know your affirmations! Share with me me, what are your favorite things that yourself that support you positively? Tell me in the comments below! 👇🏼 .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #purposepathjournal #journalwithpurpose #reflectionispowerful #affirmationsetting #positivewriting #journal #journaling #journalquestions #lifecoach #lifecoaching #turninglifegold #taketimeforyourself #selfcare #affirmations #createyourdreams #askbetterquestions #positivequestions #tonyrobbins #universityofsantamonica #loveandlight #journalqueen #ilovetojournal #writinghacks #bossbabe #ladyboss #justboss #entreprenuerlife #dowhatyoulove #aspencolorado #aspen

"Where am I not devoting enough of my time? And how can I devote more time to that today?"⠀ ...⠀ That is the first question of Day 2 of the Purpose Path Journal that I created.⠀ ...⠀ This journal is designed to help you reflect on what you want in your life and to take ownership over why you may not be there yet.⠀ ...⠀ And it helps you get creative on where you are wanting to go...⠀ ...⠀ This journal is free and is my gift to you. Give yourself the gift of taking 10 minutes a day to journal and reflect on your life so that you can make positive changes in it. Link to download is in my bio. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #journaling #purposepathjournal #journalprompts #dowhatyoulove #goalgetter #truthbomb #justboss #productivityhacks #productivityplanner #ladyboss #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifecoachtips #womenempoweringwomen #productivitycoach #bossbabe #productivity #bosslife #beyourownboss #creativeliving #lifestyleblogger #getwhatyouwant #productivityhabits #productivitytools #goaldigger #womanprenuer #womenwhohustle #girlswhohustle #girlswhotravel #turninglifegold

This is 1 of the 4 questions in Day 1 of the Purpose Path Journal.⠀ ...⠀ This journal gets you thinking about what you want in your life, who you need to be in order to get it, and how you need to show up in your life in order to get there.⠀ ...⠀ Slowing down for 10 minutes a day to journal on questions like these, can be so transformational. ⠀ ...⠀ This is a testimonial I already received "I just downloaded this journal and started it today. I've already had several TREMENDOUS AHA moments"⠀ ...⠀ Are you ready for your own AHA moments?!⠀ ...⠀ Have you downloaded The FREE Purpose Path Journal yet? If not, the life you are wanting to create is waiting for you and the link to get started is in my bio!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #purposepathjournal #journalwithpurpose #reflectionispowerful #positivity #positivewriting #journal #journaling #journalquestions #lifecoach #lifecoaching #turninglifegold #taketimeforyourself #selfcare #createyourlife #createyourdreams #askbetterquestions #positivequestions #tonyrobbins #universityofsantamonica #loveandlight #journalqueen #ilovetojournal #writinghacks #bossbabe #ladyboss #justboss #entreprenuerlife #dowhatyoulove #duluthminnesota #duluth

Earlier today, I shared about my Purpose Path Journal that I am so excited about! ...⠀ I originally created this journal because I wanted to write - but oftentimes, I’d just sit there and look at a blank page. ...⠀ You see, journaling wasn’t always super easy for me. ...⠀ I loved reflecting and writing, but needed prompts for myself to get going, because I wasn’t sure what to write about. ...⠀ So to try and fix that, I searched online for different journal prompts to see if there was anything that could help me. ...⠀ But everything I found was pretty lame and super basic. ...⠀ So I created my own journal prompts and dug in. I wrote for 7 days in a row and my life completely changed. ...⠀ Throughout my first week of journaling, I started noticing myself completing projects that I had been putting off, taking bigger action within my business and life, and connecting more with the people around me. ... I began to realize that these journal questions were so helpful for me.⠀ ...⠀ So I asked my husband, and some friends and clients if they would be willing to be my journaling guinea pigs and try it out too. That way, I could make sure that I wasn’t just biased in my love for the results that I got from these questions. ...⠀ And from there the Purpose Path Journal officially began. ...⠀ If you choose to take 10 minutes a day, for 7 days in a row to journal about questions, you will be amazed at the positive results that will start happening in your life. ...⠀ If you haven’t already downloaded the Purpose Path Journal - what are you waiting for? ...⠀ Download it at the bio in my link now. ...⠀ And then print it out, or fill it out on your computer, and let me know what you think! 📷 @joshbeecherphoto .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #purposepathjournal #journalwithpurpose #reflectionispowerful #positivity #positivewriting #journal #journaling #journalquestions #lifecoach #lifecoaching #turninglifegold #taketimeforyourself #selfcare #createyourlife #createyourdreams #askbetterquestions #positivequestions #tonyrobbins #universityofsantamonica #loveandlight #journalqueen #ilovetojournal #writinghacks #bossbabe #ladyboss #justboss #entreprenuerlife #dowhatyoulove #duluthminnesota #duluth

And after work, we play...in forts that we find in the woods 😉

Yesterday I got crabby at my husband and wasn't as loving as I wanted to be. It felt icky, and yet I knew that it was an opportunity for growth for me.⠀ ...⠀ Because anytime we get triggered, we can either choose to use it to blame someone else for our reactions aka - "because my husband did this, I now feel pissed", or to say "Ok, I'm feeling crabby and out of balance, and my husband is not responsible for my emotional reactions...so there is something for me to learn here..."⠀ ...⠀ This morning as part of my morning reading ritual (see my Story for more on this!), I opened my book to this exact page which had Keys to Being More Loving (don't you just love it when you read the PERFECT thing that you need to in the moment?!), it said:⠀ ...⠀ "Loving can be defined so many ways. We can refer to loving as not hurting yourself and not hurting anything else and as taking care of yourself so you can help take care of others. If you can truly do these things, you will be loving.⠀ ...⠀ Loving might look like many things to many people. It might look like patience, where you let things unfold the way they are going to anyway. ⠀ ...⠀ It might look like tolerance and acceptance, where you let people be what they need to be; even if you do not think it is terrific, you know that underneath whatever is going on for them, they are doing the very best they know how.⠀ ...⠀ Loving may also look like being good to yourself and knowing that you are doing your very best at the time..." ~ John-Roger⠀ ...⠀ This was exactly what I needed to read today to help bring me back to my loving. If it was what you needed to read today too, leave a heart in the comments!⠀

It’s free hat day at the @twins game today! We took my dad here for a belated birthday present. And I just love how Minnesotan Jonny looks in his hat 😍 #twinspics

I believe you. I believe women. I believe Dr. Ford.⠀ ...⠀ I don't care if she (or you) can remember the exact date of your trauma, or the exact time, or those tiny, insignificant details. I believe you.⠀ ...⠀ I told Jonny this morning that "Who cares if she can't remember the exact date it happened? I've had traumatic days in my life, but I honestly don't remember any of their dates - I can't even remember the date I got divorced 10 years ago - it was either March 23rd or March 25th - I would have to look it up - but I do remember everything that happened that day...and that was just my divorce!"⠀ ...⠀ There are small details like dates and times that we will forget - but we will never forget the big details. And watching Dr. Ford yesterday, she was so clear and bruitifully articulate on the big details. I believe her. I believe you. ⠀ ...⠀ And regardless of your opinion of Kavanaugh, I hope that we can all agree that his demeanor yesterday was not one that we would want on any judicial bench...⠀ ...⠀ If you need someone to talk to, PM me, I'm here to listen and love.

The theme of "Comfort Zones" has been coming up a lot in my coaching sessions this week. And when a client is nervous about taking a new step in their business, or moving forward with a big goal, I will slow down and ask them:⠀ ...⠀ "What is one scary, but safe action step that you can take right now to help move you forward?"⠀ ...⠀ I ask this because we want forward movement to be both SCARY and SAFE. ⠀ ...⠀ Because when things are too scary, we stay put and don't move.⠀ ...⠀ And when they are too safe, we also just stay put inside of our comfort zones. ⠀ ...⠀ It is important to find a small step that brings you forward that is both scary enough and safe enough, that you will actually take action on it.⠀ ...⠀ So if you are feeling stuck on something ask yourself the questions above - and then go take action on your answer!⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #lifecoach #takeaction #scaryandsafe #comfortzone⠀ #yourwordsarepowerful #wordstoliveby #personaldevelopment #dowhatyoulove #goalgetter #truthbomb #justboss #entrepreneurship #creativeliving #ladyboss #lifecoaching #lifecoachtips #womenempoweringwomen #liveyourbestlife #bossbabe #lovewhatyoudo #bosslife #beyourownboss #creativeliving #getwhatyouwant #nomoreexcuses #goaldigger #womanprenuer #womenwhohustle #girlswhohustle #laptoplifestyle⠀

Always. 100%. ⠀ ..⠀ And, lets be clear - you can be loving and still do all of these things listed below and more (I've heard clients say to me all of the following misbeliefs of "but doing ____ isn't loving")⠀ ...⠀ You can be loving AND still speak your truth. ⠀ ..⠀ You can be loving AND still ask for what you want.⠀ ..⠀ You can be loving AND still stand up for what you believe in.⠀ ..⠀ You can be loving AND still say No.⠀ ..⠀ You can be loving AND still give constructive feedback.⠀ ...⠀ You can be loving AND still listen to dirty rap music and dance sexy (this one is mine 😜).⠀ ...⠀ You can be a loving person AND still get upset and feel angry.⠀ ...⠀ You can be loving AND not have to like or agree with everything.⠀ ...⠀ Just be loving AND make it ok to do/feel/experience all of the other things as well. Love is the answer. Love always wins.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #loveistheanswer #lovealwayswins #justbeloving #lovewins #lovefirst #loveitall #lifecoach #turninglifegold #justboss #ladybosses #goddessboss #lettinglovein

I'm HOME! After moving from Colorado to Minnesota in the middle of July, we have been traveling a ton and have only had 1 full weekend at home 😳⠀ ...⠀ It's all been amazing - and I am so grateful for my ability to work remotely - but I'm also really ready to get settled in Duluth, create a routine, see friends and make a new community🏡 ⠀ ...⠀ We will be home for a full month before setting off again and couldn't be more excited about being here 🤩 ...⠀ If you are in Duluth - let's hang out! Both Jonny and I are looking to get more involved in the local community here, so are open to receiving invites to cool events, bike rides and outdoor fall activities. Lets do this Duluth!🍁⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #duluthisacoolcity #duluthmn #duluth #remotework #remotejobs #workremote #lifecoach #letshang #fromcoloradotominnesota #itraveltoomuch #minnesotalifestyle #minnesotalife

I've had an on-again, off-again, loving relationship with my body. Especially while dealing with infertility for the past 2 years, I've experienced deep moments of judging my body and feeling frustrated with it.⠀ ...⠀ And then two nights ago, I woke up in the middle of the night and out of no where heard the voice "Tell your body that you love it."⠀ ...⠀ And so as I laid in bed, I put my hands on my stomach and said "I love you body....I love you." As I did that I immediately felt a softening inside. And then I started telling it that I was so grateful for everything that my body IS doing for me. Because really, my body is doing pretty great. ⠀ ...⠀ I'm healthy, strong and overall functioning really well. Is it perfect? No. But what body is?⠀ ...⠀ So I realized that it is going to be way easier if I start telling my body that I love it, instead of being upset with it.⠀ ...⠀ And ever since that night when I woke up and heard the voice "Tell your body you love it", I've been telling my body that I love it and am grateful for it multiple times throughout the day. And it feels so good.⠀ ...⠀ There is a part of my intuition that tells me that just doing that is enough to bring in some deep levels of healing....what do you think?⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #iloveyoubody #ilovemybody #bodylove #positiveselfbodyimage #lifecoach #turninglifegold #lifecoaching #womensempowermentcoach #lovenotwar #loveyourself #loveyourbody #infertility #infertilitysupport #infertilityhope #infertilitylove

Jonny, today is your birthday. And we have had so much fun in the past 24-hours celebrating. ... I’m so happy to be celebrating you today. Your life hasn’t always been easy, and you have overcome a lot of challenges, but you have accepted these challenges and found a way to grow from them, which in my eyes makes you even more incredible. ... You are kind, thoughtful and one of the most compassionate humans I know. You are funny (most of the time). Your laugh is loud and contagious. You inspire many and push me to be a better human all of the time. You are crazy intelligent. You are handsome and have the world’s sexiest calf muscles. You live life on the edge (which sometimes scares the shit out of me). You are my best friend, the love of my life and my favorite adventuring buddy. And even though you drive me nuts by leaving way too many pairs of socks laying around the house and for some reason thinking that our entire house is your clothes hamper 🤔 – I still love you and life is always better with you. ... I love you. Happy Birthday mi amor. Tu corazón cura mi corazón. 💜

Such a great reframe on why to practice discipline.⠀ ...⠀ I'm not being disciplined because it is a punishment, or because "I should do this" or "I need to do this."⠀ ...⠀ I'm practicing loving discipline because every time I am disciplined, I am taking action towards what I want.⠀ ...⠀ For me, it is a simple reframe that makes all the difference. BOOM! ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #discipline #whatiwant #lifecoach #lifecoaching #turninglifegold #bedisciplined #disciplineequalsfreedom #selfdiscipline #disciplineyourself

I’m a week behind,...but we had the best time in the mountains of Colorado last weekend celebrating the love between @moonfox11 and @ssdrafiki! We love you two and it was so sweet being with you! #forpeteskate

The beauty of being human is that we get to exercise this wonderful thing called choice....⠀ ...⠀ A good friend reminded me the other day that I have a vital choice: I can choose love, or I can choose fear. Which one did I want to choose?⠀ ...⠀ Obviously, I wanted to choose love. To choose to be loving regardless of the situation. And to trust that all I need is within me now.⠀ ...⠀ And you too have a vital choice. Do you choose love or fear? Love or hatred? Love or anger? Love or againstness? Love or righteousness? ⠀ ...⠀ My suggestion? Choose whichever one will bring you more peace inside and go for the loving...xo⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #yourwordsarepowerful #wordstoliveby #lovewins #dowhatyoulove #goalgetter #truthbomb #justboss #lovelovelove #creativeliving #ladyboss #lifecoach #lifecoaching #lifecoachtips #womenempoweringwomen #liveyourbestlife #bossbabe #lovewhatyoudo #bosslife #beyourownboss #creativeliving #lifestyleblogger #getwhatyouwant #excuses #nomoreexcuses #goaldigger #womanprenuer #womenwhohustle #girlswhohustle #girlswhotravel #laptoplifestyle
