What is Commitment?


Commitment is doing the thing you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.

As you think about times when you made a big decision and was fully committed and ready to show up and do the work, you knew it would change your life. 

Maybe it was a workout plan, lose weight, get healthy, going to college, saving money, changing your career, taking a vacation, etc. —but you quickly went back to your old ways because the mood had passed. 

Why is that? 

I call this losing your focus on the DRIVE — which is key in my self-help book “5 Steps to Your Own D.R.I.V.E.” 

Allowing yourself to create your life be design takes a strategy, focused, and ACTion. Otherwise it doesn’t evolve in the way you desire.

When Will Good Things Happen to You?


Good things are going to happen .... but when? That’s where you get to decide. 

Create in your journal a list of all the things you desire from materialistic items, experiences, AND epically the emotions tied to them. 

When you can put emphasis on how you feel once you receive those items and/or opportunities, you are amping up the vibration to attract what you desire faster. 

Don’t limit your desires with “why” or “how” for now its more of an inventory of everything you have a deep desire to attract into your life. 

And allow yourself to belief and trust good things are going to happen. And when you live from that perspective the Universe (God, Source) can align them into your existence. 💫

You’ve got this!

What's On Your List?


Today, list the joys in your life. Breaking the habit of talking about your problems will open you up to more joy. What you focus on, creates more. 

If you complain about your money problems —you continue to have money problems. Speak abundance into your life. 

If you complain about relationship problems —you stay stuck in bad relationships. Select five people who lift your spirit and bring you joy, and be intentional about spending as much time as possible with them.

If you complain about your health and wellness —you won’t find what makes you healthy and well. Look to making simple shifts that can lead to healthier habits. Oh, and remember —You didn’t get unhealthy overnight so don’t expect it to change overnight. 😉

It’s all conscious language habits. Speak your future as if it already is. And find evidence that you are improving your current situation for the best. That will fuel you to the destination of your dreams.

As always, I’m here to support if you need it. Click here to contact me.

What Makes You (Un)Happy?


Look closely at your life and decide what makes you happy. That feeling inside that lights you up — whether it’s a relationship, a lifestyle or a job. If it brings you joy keep doing what your doing.

On the other hand if it doesn’t bring you the joy and happiness you desire let it go.

Why continue being unhappy when it’s a choice. Like the song from Frozen — “let it go."

What you may discover is once you release what no longer serves you, you actually open up to receive something better.

Journaling will help you discover more about your happiness. Find time to write and ask yourself what no longer makes you happy. See what comes up. You may just be surprised.

Also please try not to sensor what you hear. It’s important to let those thoughts come through without judgement.

Happy Writing ✍🏻💖

I am...


I AM statements are very powerful when you practice them daily. Release what you no longer want to believe as shown above. Then replace them with what you want. 

Start by with the I Am Not statements above reading it out loud. Then create your own I Am statements dropping the NOT. 

For instance— 
I Am Enough 
I Am Worthy
I Am Love
I Am Happy, Healthy and Whole
I Am a Magnet for Money

Now you try ...

Your Past


By allowing yourself to let go of the past, it can and will change your life’s journey. Write all the details to the things you wish to release and let go of with details —and please no judgment. 

Be as detailed as you remember the events and add any emotions. Get it up and out of your system/memory and bring it back to life with all the feelings. 

Then—Release, release, release. Forgive the past and ripe up the paper and burn it to ash. Believe and trust it is being recycled and renewed across all space and time. 

Breathe —You can move forward and live for today and not from your past. 

It’s time to Level Up my dear. It’s taken you way to long. I’m here to support and hold space. Let me know how I can help before, during or after this process. On the other side you’ll feel so much lighter. I know this to be true.

Ready to Level Up?

Are you considering hiring a life coach? Do you even know what a life coach does? Are you curious and wondered what it would be like for YOU?

Perhaps the therapist you hired isn’t really clicking with you or you find family and friends aren’t offering the best support or advice.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • A life coach provides objective guidance and isn’t trying to “fix” anything.

  • A life coach supports you unconditionally and has you in their best interest.

  • A life coach is someone that offers you the time and space to really speak about your life and discover deeper awareness and answers to what might be keeping you in fear, doubt, uncertainty or lack of direction, confidence and support in all areas of your life.

  • A life coach effectively guides the conversation to produce results asking questions that maybe you’ve not considered and leads with questions so you can find clarity and understanding.

Added Bonuses for having a life coach is not only the positive impact that a life coach has on your life it also includes:

  • on-going source of support

  • doesn’t have an opinion or emotional investment in your decisions who can give you truly objective guidance

  • building your confidence and productivity

  • offering accountability and follow through

  • moves you forward – from stuck to unstoppable

During the coaching sessions, a life coach will listen and ask questions to identify and discuss the pain points that you may not see because when you’re in “it” sometimes it’s challenging to see for yourself objectively. The coach will further ask the questions to dig deep, find the root, and clear patterns that perhaps you don’t see.

As you can see, working with a life coach is super powerful. Connecting weekly and messaging in between is how I like to support my clients and a program designed specifically to fit your needs depending on what you want to achieve.

I know that how you do one thing is how you do all things so topics may include but not limited to: work, career, health, wellness, financial, relationships, fitness, or life in general to name a few.

You Make It Happen – and being supported on your journey unconditionally allows you to move beyond the obstacles and get busy living the life of your dreams.

I actually offer a free 20-minute call for anyone considering a life coach. It’s a great way for us to get to know each other, and for you to feel confident without making any commitments. Make an appointment for that free consultation if you’re interested calendly.com/findyourowndrive

Message in a Book


Today I encourage you to find a message in a book. I've used this method often by randomly opening a book to a page after asking “what support/message do I need in this moment?”

Opening the book and see what’s on the page that will resonate with you. 

For me — this book was spot on. These bullet points jumped off the page at me....

Does this support you? 

(From the book "Ask and It Is Given" 
Esther and Jerry Hicks)

What's the Rush?


Woo wee this is such a reminder and validation from the Universe. I was just sharing with my client how you can’t force things — timing is everything. 

No matter how much or how quickly we want to be beyond a circumstance or situation the timing is all in the lessons. 

Feeling into what’s taking place and allow it to marinate and teaches you how to move beyond what’s in front of you. 

As you learn to navigate through the uncomfortableness you start to feel more grounded and aligned which allows you to move beyond what feels icky and towards what you desire most. 

Play big in the game of life so all your dreams and desires can come true.

Cheers to new adventures and the beautiful discoveries that follow along that path.

Feeling Stuck?


Sometimes you don’t realize that by stopping when you feel stuck you’re missing out on an opportunity. Much like a seed that’s planted and about to sprout 🌱 but you stop watering and providing sunshine it cant break through the soil and will simply rot in the ground. 

Hmmm. Does that resonate? 

Focusing on what’s not working out only keeps you stuck in the story of the past. 

That’s not who you are now. 

You’ve grown, had experiences, and gained more knowledge. 

Just take those experiences and add to what you want in life, mix with passion, along with trusting and believing in the process —saying often that everything is aligning to my highest and best good— and BOOM the magic ignites and your dreams begin to surface. 💫

Keep taking action and track your progress even when you feel like quitting. 

And for additional growth and expansion find someone to help support and nurture your dreams with accountability and motivation. 

You are worth the investment.

Using Gratitude as a Tool


ahh yes GRATITUDE where the magic can enter into your life with joy and ease. 

Rebuilding yourself, rebranding yourself, and rediscovering yourself is all centered in a place of gratitude. 

When I feel things aren’t aligning as I have intended I go back and find the gratitude. The deep thankfulness for being right where I am. From this place I can pivot and get back on track. 

If money isn’t showing up—I start recalling all the money I’ve been given thought my life ...starting when I was born. That’s a lot of money! 

When an opportunity doesn’t workout —I revisit all the other opportunities that did! Knowing the next one is well in it way. 

Now that I am surround by likeminded individuals — I am grateful to share a common space to learn and grow together! 

It’s that simple, my friends. The magic is on the other side of GRATITUDE—try it. Even if it’s just for today. Oh, and be sure to look for the magic. It’s there. 💫

Asking for More


Has it ever occurred to you that you could ask for more? Right here, right now, give yourself permission to ASK for more.

More joy and happiness
More love and money
More ice cream and potato chips
More of EVERYTHING that feels good!

Don't allow limiting beliefs or others to define what's truly possible to receive. I know from my own journey there is always room for MORE. Start asking. 💜



#WellnessWednesday Regret! 😐

When I read this quote it brought up a lot of things that I either didn’t do or did not allow myself to take the chance.

Although I’ve been very successful in my business and life endeavors, and took chances, it’s more personal.

If you have followed me for anytime you know that at one point I committed to being healthy. I changed my diet dramatically, eliminated White flour, sugar, and dairy as well as all alcohol, and create a very slim body and reversed and avoided some health issues. 

This all took place back in 2014, and I maintain this program of a healthier lifestyle for close to two years. But over time I begin to revert back to the old ways and losing site of my overall health and well-being. 

Sharing the word “regret” is to allow yourself to really lean into knowing that at the time when you made big strides in your life and felt good there was no regrets. 

But if you’re someone who has slipped back into old patterns, or not really fulfilling your desires by taking chances, the regret is something that you can give yourself permission to release by recognizing you’re not the same person you were when you accomplish those things before or even missed out on opportunities. 

So now moving forward allow yourself to take this information and know that “up until now” that’s how it was. And from this place you get to release the regret and move forward with passion and desire by doing the things you want to do and taking the chances that you want to take. 

This is life by design and how you make it happen!! You’ve got this 💫

Is Your Anxiety Lying?


How do you respond to this statement that your anxiety is lying to you? If you believe believe that you are loved and will be okay does that offer you comfort you need?

Maybe this message doesn’t resonate with you —so I encourage you to think about those around you. Are they experiencing anxiety? Perhaps you can let them know they are loved and it will be okay!

Pay it forward.

In The Moment


Today I challenge you to be in the moment, for that is all you really have. Allow yourself permission to stop focusing so hard on the timelines and deadlines and be fully present to what is. 

The journey is the goal with loving the process. And not needing to look for finish line... that only means “the end”.
