REFLECTION...a special post!!

These days, I feel like my heart has been burst open wide!  My eyes are noticing things like never before, and messages are coming to me from ALL OVER THE PLACE!!  Today started with a few small things and then I read this post from one of my bestest friends ever, Kim!  WOW!!  She has this amazing blog called Design Thoughts where you can find beautiful ideas for creating the perfect home, hints and tips about DIY projects, AND ways to be a thoughtful and PRESENT parent, wife, and woman!  Kim takes you on a journey through her passion with design and also tells her story of creating the life of her dreams!  

Today's post was a beautiful reflection of pieces of her life.  It struck me so much because I also have been reflective the last couple of days.  I believe it's such an important piece of creating and manifesting.  When you take the time to see how far you've come, you realize your own strength and personal power.  You realize that you have made it through so many challenges!  You also realize just how short life is, and how fast it goes...and why it's so important to make the most of today!  Right NOW!  :)

So check out this post!  I know you're gonna love it!

Just take that leap! NYC..what I learned

As I was sitting at my job the other day, listening to David Gray,
I was taken back so quickly, 
to the days of working in New York City...


Our first time in Soho..Spring of '05

I was 29, and we had moved one year before, from our home in Michigan. 
I remember being so sad the first year I was in NY. I wasn't working in the city, 
I was in Westchester. I missed my friends, and my home
 ( we went from being home owners, to landlords and renters in one quick move)
and my family seemed so far away, they felt untouchable.
I was SURE we made a mistake! 
Although we were proud of ourselves for "Following our dreams" 
and "taking a leap of faith"  it wasn't feeling so dreamy. 
Then, I started working in the city, I felt alive!! I was surrounded by new sounds, 
and sights, and the hustle bustle of people everywhere. 
I began to LOVE my walk to work each morning, seeing cutting edge fashion , 
and personal style that just oozes out of every doorway. 
Watching the city transform each season from beautiful flowers and flowing skirts, 
to bare trees and bulky sweaters.

 I remember the first day I walked out of the beautiful showroom
I was working at, across from Gramercy Tavern, 
and the T.V Show "The Soprano's" was being filmed on our street. 
I remember noticing how the true New Yorkers, really didn't give it
much thought, it seemed they all had very important places to be..lol.
( I became THAT person only 2 short years later) 
Then in one day, I met Natalie Portman, AND...

30 Day BE. Inspired Exercise Challenge!

Hi Everyone!

Today I'm busy working on the 30 Day Exercise Challenge and I'm getting so excited!  WooHoo!!  Have you signed up yet?  I added a new page to the website to make it easier for people to find it and sign up!   I'll be making a new video post tomorrow but today I just wanted to share this post about the challenge, just in case you missed it!

You can also find the following post on the 30 Day BE. Inspired Exercise Challenge page:

If you're anything like me, you want to make your health a priority but with busy schedules, families to take care of, work to be done, and households to keep up, it's not always easy to do!  Wouldn't it be easier to exercise regularly if you had daily support?  What if somebody was there to give you inspiration and motivation everyday?  What if you had help with accountability in a positive and exciting way?  Wouldn't it be easier to do it if it was FUN?

If this sounds like you, you've come to the right place!  The 30 Day BE. Inspired Exercise Challenge will begin on April 1st and I would LOVE if you would join the team!!!




So what is the 30 Day BE. Inspired Exercise Challenge?

1. Everyday for 30 days you will exercise for at least 20 minutes doing an activity of your choice.  (I will give you ideas on what you can do, but it will all be your choice!)

2. Everyday for 30 days you will "check in" on my Facebook  BE. Inspired Coaching page once your workout is complete.  You can write: Check!  Done!  Did it!  I ran today!  ...whatever you feel comfortable with!  (If you aren't on Facebook, you can still participate through email check in, though you will be missing the team/community interaction that goes along with the public posts.)

3. Everyday for 30 days you will receive positive messages of  inspiration, motivation, encouragement, and enrichment!  I will provide you with guidance in exercise, health, and overall well being through my own personal experiences as well as citing expert sources.  I will encourage the team to be interactive and supportive of one another through posts, so you will be receiving live assistance every day!!

4. Each week you will receive a video from me with stories, tips, and tools that have helped to make it easier to incorporate healthy living and exercise into my life.

5. Join with a friend or friends, and each of you will be entered into the prize drawing!  The prize will vary depending on the number of participants.  For at least 25 people, there will be a $25 prize drawing,  50 people, $50, and 100 people (which is my goal!) I will give away $100!!!


My goal is to help as many people as possible start to live a healthier life NOW!!!  I know it's a challenge to exercise regularly on your own, to find the strength to keep going...I want to help you with that!  I want you to feel good about yourself!  I want to help you do your best!  I want you to feel good about your life!  I want you to have more energy and feel comfortable in your own body!  I want you to feel strong and EMPOWERED!!!

KNOW you can do it and if we do it TOGETHER, you will have the support and guidance you need to keep going when things get tough!!

The investment is small, just $15 for the entire challenge!  That's just 50 cents a day!  $3.50 a week!  Less than the cost of a gallon of gas!  Less than the cost of a Starbucks premium coffee!  Less than a drink at a restaurant or bar!  What a small price to pay for a HUGE investment in your life and your health!!

Do you let yourself be vulnerable?

Happy Sunday!  I hope you're having a great day!  I've been catching up on things around the house and spent some quality time feeding my soul with some Super Soul Sunday on OWN TV.  (That's Oprah's network in case you didn't know.)  Today's guest was Dr. Brene' Brown, author of Daring Greatly.  I felt like I was meant to watch this show today!

Holy Wow!  She speaks on vulnerability and authenticity and showing up for your life.  I had so many A-ha moments I was shaking my head, and tearing up, and writing and rewinding and replaying and writing some more!  She makes so much sense to me!  She talked about perfectionism, faith, and getting comfortable in uncertainty.

I want to write more because I'm still buzzing about it, but we're getting ready to take the girls to the park!  Back to school tomorrow so we have to live it up today!  :)  I'll try to write more tonight!

In the meantime, click here to watch the show online!
If you want to check out another awesome video from Dr. Brene' Brown, click here to go to her famous Ted Talk on vulnerability on YouTube.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and even if it doesn't speak to you in the same way, I hope the ideas plant seeds in your mind that you may live the most beautiful, authentic, wonderful and daring life possible!!!

Love to You!

Some Randoms and Day 21 of the 30 Day BE. Inspired Video Challenge!

Hi guys!  How are you?

So, I had to take a little break from the video challenge.  Brad went out of town and other things just needed my attention and focus.  I also needed some time to rest and play with my girls!  On Thursday, we had pizza night and watched a movie together.  It felt so good to sit on the couch and snuggle with them!!  I need to let myself do that more!  And it felt AWESOME to not have to do dishes after the movie!  :)

I have so many cool ideas on what to do next with my business!!!!!  It's so exciting!  One thing will be starting on April 1st...and it could include YOU!!  Stay tuned for more details!  :)

I've heard from several of you...I love that so much!!  It's so awesome to know that the things I'm saying and putting out there are helping others!  I want to help you KNOW that you are not alone, you are always loved, and you can always make your dreams come true!  ALWAYS!!!!
 God wouldn't put that dream in your heart unless you could make it come true!!  (and have help doing it!!) 


I love making videos, so if you're enjoying them too, please keep letting me know, please keep sharing them, and please keep spreading the word!  Thank you so much!!  I want to keep growing this community as much as possible!!! 


And now for Day 21!  Today I talk about my journey and how I came to know what kind of business I wanted to start!  Especially good for those of you who want to make a change in your career!  Thanks for watching!

Love to You!

30 Day BE. Inspired Video Challenge Day 18!

Today I wanted to talk about something that I've worked on for years, worry!  I used to be a huge worrier.  I would get so much anxiety thinking about all the things I was worrying about that I could feel it in every part of my body.  It was not a healthy situation and I knew I needed to change!

Over time and with lots of practice, I'm proud to say that these days I keep my worrying to a minimum!  Please enjoy today's video which includes my two favorite little people!  :)

Love to You!

30 Day BE. Inspired Video Challenge Day 17!

I'm back!!  This morning I was feeling totally off and in need of some personal time.  I headed to yoga with my music cranked, the sun shining brightly, and very quickly things began to shift!  It was just what I needed to get back into the flow of things!

For day 17, I talk about my plan and how being flexible is a great asset to creating the life you want!

Enjoy and thanks for watching!

Love to You!
