Fear can be a huge block when it comes to reaching any goal.
It's usually the reason that most people never fully achieve what they want to in life.
Yesterday I read a quote that I loved:
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist" ~Oscar Wilde
I think this is so true. We really do let fear control the outcome of our lives.
Watch this video about a scary health scare I had that taught me a very strong lesson that helped me learn how to face my fears and always keep moving forward.
I help women learn to dream big and get what they want so they can live fully with purpose. If you want my help then reach out and let's talk about my private coaching and support. Be sure to ask about my email and FB Community Special that I put together just for you!

5 steps to find life purpose
…..and live as your authentic self
How exactly do we become lost or disconnected from ourselves to the point where we feel completely stuck and uninspired in life.
I hear this time and time again especially from women heading into the middle part of life. They just feel like they have no purpose and no joy in their life.
I believe a big part of this is we spend so much time, sometimes years taking care of other people, putting everyone else first at the cost of our happiness and health.
Most of this is expected of us from our family, significant others, and also society in general. Women are expected to be the perfect Mom, wife, friend, employee, and business owner. We are also expected to do this while looking and acting a certain way.
The good news is that we are free to do what we want. We don’t have to do any of these things. It’s a choice we make and it’s all about setting healthy and strong...
~Combining Clean and Intuitive Eating for Weight-Loss
In order to have weight loss that lasts you really don’t need a diet, you need a lifestyle change. You can’t expect the weight to stay off if you revert back to old habits. So the first step to long-lasting weight loss and improved health is accepting that you will have to make a lifestyle change.
Today I will cover 4 ways to get started with clean and intuitive eating so that you can get rid of some of those unwanted pounds and improve your health.
You know that nervous feeling when you're about to speak in public, do a FB live, or even speaking at a board meeting.
Nervous, sweaty palms, sweaty everything!
Why is it that this one thing is so unnerving to a majority of the public?
The answer is, it’s a very important basic human need. The need to belong. Be accepted and loved by our friends, family, community, and our peers. As I said, it’s a basic human need so right up there with food and shelter.
So cut yourself some slack and use some of these tips to help you deal with the stress and consider that that nervous feeling is just a bit of excitement.
Like I always say, there is always magical stuff on the other side of discomfort.
Here are some tips:
Setting boundaries might sound a bit confrontational or limiting. Actually, it’s what I think is one of the most important forms of self-care/self-love and it is not limiting but actually very expansive and can help you live your life more fully being authentically yourself.
What exactly is a boundary? A boundary is a limit we set around what we consider acceptable and unacceptable behavior. What we will do or not do, accept, and tolerate.
A boundary is very personal, it has nothing to do with another person. It is our own setpoint for what is acceptable in our life and it is our responsibility to set and maintain them and no one else's.
If you feel someone has stepped over one of your boundaries it’s because you let it happen.
It is not someone else's job to uphold and respect our boundaries, it’s our job.
If you set a boundary and don’t hold to it then you will send the message that no one else has to respect it either.

3 Steps To Declutter Your Mind
I love to declutter stuff. My car, my closet, my junk drawer, and pretty much any part of my life. What most people don’t think about is how to declutter your mind so you can have less stress and anxiety and also make space for more creativity and happiness.
I recently did a FB live on decluttering in my FB Group, Empowering Women at 40 and Beyond, and was going to write about decluttering everything, but then I thought it would be better to focus on your mind because we often fail to think and care for ourselves and I’d say getting your head unclogged would be beneficial, right?
Here are 3 steps you can take to help declutter your mind.
Self-care To Help With Anxiety
When all the crap started in 2020 (Too much crap to list for all of us), I'm not gonna lie, I was freaking anxious. And I knew I needed to make some adjustments. My anxiety level was unreasonable and I knew I needed to get it to chill. I started to do some research on how I could do this naturally.
Keep in mind in order to really make changes in the way you feel you have to do the work. If you want to feel different then you have to be different. So commit to doing the work when you get started.
Here are a few changes I made that helped.
I Cut Back On The Caffeine
This was tough for me, I love coffee and it's such a huge part of my routine. The more I read about it, the more I knew it needed to be done!
Caffeine can not only increase anxiety levels but even worse people with anxiety can be more vulnerable to its effects. I now drink mostly decaffeinated which I did gradually over time. If you want to know my system, contact me and I'll share.
This week I thought it would be great to talk about learning how to say no to things you really don't want to do so you can say yes to things that light you up inside.
This is a way to prioritize and protect one of your most valuable resources! Time.
So make sure when you say yes to something it's a hell yes! Agreed?
Today I'm going to cover 3 different situations and how to say no.
To The Boss - When You Don't Have The Time
“I know this project/work is important to you. Can we spend some time looking at my current responsibilities because I want to do my job very well and I don't want anything to fall through the cracks. I can get this done for you but we might have to put another project on the back burner so I can give you my best work for this one.” It's the truth and it's polite and respectful.
To A Close Friend Or Family Member – If You're Currently In A State Of Over Scheduled Overwhelm
