Replace Your Fear With Courage

Today’s post comes from Lauren, a lawyer from Sydney who is currently taking a break from law. Thank you, Lauren, for sharing your story with us ❤

I was sitting at my desk in my little cupboard office on the morning I published my article Why your worst fears are nothing to be afraid of. How did I have the audacity to I speak about conquering fear when it was the catalyst to my emptiness? Fear was eating me from the inside out. I had no right to even suggest that someone should leave the job that paralyzes them when that’s exactly what I couldn’t do.

Next Step, Opportunities, Perfectionism

I’m doing another combination post for the A-Z Challenge. I got a few posts up yesterday and scheduled out some more for this week but wasn’t able to get yesterday’s letter up. While I’m at it, I’m adding tomorrow’s letter in this post too. It works out well because these letters go together like peanut butter and jelly. 

As I began to embrace myself for the perfectly imperfect person I was, I stopped focusing on the “what if’s” in life. I found the best way to snuff out anxiety was by letting go of expectations. This isn’t to say that I didn’t have dreams, goals, or aspirations just that I wasn’t fixed on how they came about and didn’t fret over things that may or may not happen.

Cheating, Character, & Consequences

As a parent, I know that the best way to teach my kids is to lead by example. I make sure to keep the line of communication open and have heart to hearts with my girls regularly but it’s what I do that they really remember.

Our character is what we do when we think no one is looking.

Knowing, Listening & Meditating

For those of you who don’t know what the A-Z Challenge is, it’s a blog challenge to post your way through the alphabet a letter a day through the month of April. I got a little behind on the challenge at the end of last week. I missed posting for letters K-M. I figured the best way to catch up was to combine the 3 posts I missed into one. Funny enough these three letters had words that went together perfectly!  Continue reading “Knowing, Listening & Meditating”

Healthy In Every Season

As the seasons change, it’s easy to lose sight of our healthy goals.  We choose the couch over the treadmill. Maybe there are a few more pizza deliveries when it becomes much harder to get fresh, local, fruit and vegetables. While that approach is certainly easier, it won’t lead to great health outcomes over time. It’s time to start thinking about healthy habits that last throughout the seasons.   Continue reading “Healthy In Every Season”

Cultivating Joy

Something I was actually surprised about once I overcame my battle with depression was the feeling of joy. It wasn’t something I was familiar with or new how to identify. It made me feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. I didn’t know how to interpret it and thought it was surely the calm before the storm. Surely something awful was about to happen and I was too distracted to see it coming.  Continue reading “Cultivating Joy”

Intention

Something that surprised me during my journey of self-discovery was the power of intention. Whether the motivation behind why I did something or the end result I desired, intention is a powerful thing. I set intentions regularly throughout my day from how I want to show up for the day to the things I want to complete and the reasons why. Setting intentions has become a powerful practice for me to both check in with myself and make sure I’m in alignment with my values and to push myself to keep taking a step forward every day.  Continue reading “Intention”

You Create What You Believe

I was watching a webinar by Sue Bryce as I tended to my house today and there were so many great pieces of wisdom shared! Sue Bryce is an amazing photographer but what I love about her most is that a lot of what she talks about can be applied to any industry and life in general. One thing that particularly stood out to me was something she said specifically in relation to money. A lot of times photographers, artists, creatives and entrepreneurs in general struggle with how much to charge. In addition to the cost of doing business, you have to place a monetary value to your time. Part of that has to do with your self-worth. It can be really easy to make excuses or convince yourself why you aren’t earning more, doing better, or booking more clients. Sue said something so simple yet so profound.
