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. 💜

Regret!

#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

64757335_2268163410111468_2254980159658524672_n.jpg

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”. 

Evolving and expanding your life into what you desire is the joy in living. Making it happen from your own dreams and wishes. Let the Universe conspire with you and open up the endless possibilities that are available FOR you. 

How can you start in this moment to really be present? 

Maybe just a gentle pinch of the cheek saying “that’a girl/boy—you are a gift to this world and we are glad you came. Now go be brilliant, my friend.“

Ask me for help if you feel the urge. It doesn’t mean you failed. It just means you’re not alone.

Lost Your Drive?

Melissa-FINALS-0012.jpg

Everyone has a story and those experiences are what define them. But what happens when you find yourself derailed, going in a downward spiral, feeling no love for yourself, using food, alcohol, shopping (anything) to numb out and go unconscious to those feelings?

You, my dear, have lost your DRIVE, and not long ago I felt exactly the same way thanks to the stress and responsibilities in my own life. Luckily, I was able to switch out of that negative pattern and I want you to know that you TRULY can do the same - you just have to say YES and take action.

If you're at the point where you're feeling like you want something more, you're ready for change, and you know it's time to create a NEW story, I invite you to register for my Activation hour so you can get back on track in life and have the joy and happiness you desire.

Thinking About Thoughts

61699262_2257807984480344_8862332997144150016_n.jpg

With a new day, comes new strength and new thoughts!

Never underestimate the power of the mind. It is a choice what you choose to think in every minute and every moment.

Today I challenge you to really be conscious of what you’re thinking. See how your thoughts tend to drift and wonder. What are they thinking about?

Are they thoughts of joy and happiness? Or are they thoughts that are surrounded by fear and uncertainty?

Are you struggling to find answers to things that you want to resolve but just can’t seem to find the answers?

Do you stay up at night trying to fall asleep only to keep running the story over and over in your head, and having nightmares on top of it?

If this sounds like you, isn’t it time to stop and really learn to focus on what brings you joy and happiness?

I want to support you! I was you! And I know how to make the change quickly so that you no longer have to struggle. 

Here’s where you can unlock the doors to where those thoughts come from and get crystal clear on how to release the past and begin moving forward with your dreams and desires with confidence, joy and happiness. 

You are worth it! Give yourself permission to break the chains that hold you down. The time is now.

Is Your Past Running the Show?

61953821_2254372814823861_8144415658700963840_n.jpg

Often, the stories of your past are running the show. Meaning, you continue to think and speak about them all the time within your mind or to others. 

How does this serve? It doesn’t really. It just keep you stuck in that story and doesn’t allow for you to uplevel to something better. 

“you can’t rewrite your past...”. 

Your past is the place where you learn valuable lessons from the experiences you have and understand those lessons by using the information to do better moving forward. 

Good or bad — your past is behind you. 

Today, in this moment, you have the power—if you give yourself permission, “to grab a clean sheet of paper and write your future” with all the details of what you want to experience next. 

Allow your mind let go the limitations (fear) and really own what you desire. 

The sky is the limit!

It’s your birth-rite to live abundantly and prosperously so today move towards those dreams and goals by writing it as if it already is....and so it will be. 💫

Remember — you make it happen and the time is now.

Let It Go

61006292_2249873421940467_5334681283819732992_n.jpg

You know the song “Let it Go”? 

There is a powerful statement in the song that says:

“It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I'm free”

How many times have you found yourself just thinking over and over about a situation or circumstance that doesn’t feel good. One that you can’t change —it’s happened and it’s over. 

Yet it keeps popping up in your mind and you replay it wondering why it happened the way it did or how you could have done things differently. 

A bad day — is just that AND you have a choice in how to manage such a day. 

As the song says “No right, no wrong, no rules for me—I'm free”

This is the most powerful statement I can think of that really opens the heart and allows for the mind (fear) to release the “bad day” and move into the freedom of choosing to see the good and learn the lesson. 

Back when I attend the Zig Ziglar conference there was a workshop that taught about being a “good finder” and there was even a notepad that we could fill in and share with others identifying something good about them. 

It taught me to be a good finder in all situations. 

From that time, I began to use this method. When I think of anything “bad” I’ve learned to continue being the good finder. Knowing that although the day isn’t as I would have desired, I am alive and well. Or I’m still breathing and that means I still hold the power in letting the situation control me or for me to control my thoughts and feelings around the situation. 

So what is your bad day coping mechanism? Do you carry it like a back pack and feel the weight and relive the moment?

Are you willing to take off the back pack and “let it go?”

Seems impossible —Want to know how? 

Take paper and pen and write out everything about the bad day, circumstance or situation. Get really detailed. Add the sounds, smells, feelings, and such to really paint a clear picture. If someone read it they would feel as though they were there. 

Get it all out on the paper. Don’t hold anything back. 

Once you feel complete, read it—out loud 3 times. 

And then take the paper and burn it 🔥

Yes! Burn it—and just before doing so say to the Universe I am releasing this to be recycled across all space and time. It no longer serves me and I am willing to let it go. 

Watch it burn and believe in the process and trusting it is so. 

Sounds silly — but it works! Give it a try. 

Sending you love and light. 

Have an magical day my friend. 

Pleasing Others and Not Yourself?

60616865_2244129672514842_2817729181624827904_n.jpg

Allowing yourself to release the power of others and their need to “help” you can often be the turning point in your life. The emotions that are attached to fulfilling what others “want” you to be, do or have can only leave you feeling stress, anxiety, and depression.

FLIP THE SWITCH NOW!!

Go within and learn to use your heart and gut to fulfill your needs and desires. What do you really want? What brings you joy — you’ll feel it in your body. Our body is powerful in letting you know what’s right. And the mind is supportive too but can easily be confused with all the input from others who had an opinion.

You’ve got this. You can live your life by design! Not sure how to do that? Fear is keeping you stuck? Let’s hop on a call and get you unstuck. It’s time for you to play full out and be unstoppable.

Where Do You See Yourself?

60032479_2239965569597919_8034166055825833984_n.jpg


Where do you see yourself? 
👣
Stepping forward into growth or back into safety? 
👣
You hear the expression stepping out of your comfort zone—And often times we are willing to do so, but we things start getting difficult we find ourselves right back into the comfort zone area.
👣
They also talk about thinking outside the box. But when we get outside of the box sometimes we find ourselves lost and confused and so we jump right back into the box.
👣
Being able to step forward should be the focus. 
👣
I only say this because had I not made choices to move forward I would be so lost and not be the person that I have become today.
👣
As I set my intentions, and begin to get very clear about them, and do my mindset work, and envision the results, I am stepping forward.
👣
It doesn’t have to be anything huge for you to move forward, it’s just really taking those baby steps one at a time.
👣
So what are you waiting for? Do you need some support? Do you need maybe a kick in the pants or a big shovel from the back. 
👣
Thank the leap — of faith— and grow your wings on the way down. 
👣
Maybe you don’t even know what it is that you want to step forward and do. Perhaps you can journal about this and see if you were to take one step forward toward your goal, your intention, your desire, what would that look like?
👣
It really is about having your mind clear, being in the moment, and making that conscious decision that stepping back is not an option. And when you burn the boat as they say you have no other choice but to take over the island 🌴 
👣
The choice is yours. Stay stuck — or step forward into unstoppable. 👊🏻
👣👣👣

What's Your Order?

57294157_2224807397780403_770165753037979648_n.jpg

Tell the “story” as if it already is! 

Whatever it is that you’re calling in for your life —what does it look like once you have received it. 

A lot of lottery winners lose their money quickly because they don’t have a plan for spending it. 

Make a Plan today on what things will look like and how you will look, be, and feel once it arrives. 

There’s truly magic in all of this I promise you. So just take today and start creating that future with pen and paper and let the universe do the rest. 

Imagine the Universe is a cosmic kitchen and you are placing your order. Give the details and know it is on its way to you for you. And remember to be in a high vibration when you create this order by being excited and energized — Childlike when they know Christmas is coming. 

You’ve got this. You make it happen. Start with the vision. And celebrate everything you call in with happiness and joy. Cheers my friend. Have an amazing day 💫🥂

Setting a Goal

57568462_2228442204083589_7666940644006297600_n.jpg

Setting a goal. “People would go succeed because they know where they are going” —Earl Nightingale.

Take a look at your goals and identify three or four of them that you would like to accomplish in any area of your life and give yourself a time frame.

Work every day to make sure that you’re doing at least one or two, maybe even three, action steps daily towards achieving those goals.

Remember to stop and catch yourself thinking. Are you having positive thoughts or negative thoughts?

Your thoughts are creating your future! The more clarity you can provide around obtaining the goal the more your subconscious mind will start to believe and things will begin falling into place.

Let the magic begin. This is also known as manifesting. Contact me if you’d like help with setting a goal, staying focused on it, and manifesting success in your life.

Changes - Inside and Around

57374807_2226495197611623_7803575914607935488_n.jpg

#WellnessWednesday Today I want to remind you that when things change inside of you, things change around you. 

During my journey back in 2014, I took my understanding of my health and wellness to the next level. First releasing my addiction to alcohol, followed dropping sugar, white flour and dairy from my diet, to learning to love on myself more. 

No judgement, self loathing, or negative self talk —that didn’t serve me so I was done! 

I started from a place of mindset in that I would make myself healthier for longevity and vitality. To live in a body vessel that would carry me into my hundreds if possible 💫

And I was able to accomplish that goal, for a period of time, I felt alive in my body. And what was going into my body and mind was goodness with nutrition, thoughts, and love. And everything around me was all that as well. 

Overtime, like many of us do, I slipped back into my old patterns with food, but proudly to say some of my other addictions to alcohol, smoking, overspending, is no longer a struggle for me. 👏🏻

What I know for sure is it all begins with the thoughts. Our mind is a powerful tool. What I’m thinking about, and what I’m saying about myself is all deeply imbedded with in my system. And the outer evidence of clutter, lack of focus and energy, and eating those foods that no longer support me is the confirmation things need to change.  

So it’s time to step back into my inner compass and find ways that I can start creating better wellness. 

My intuition knows and tells me — back to the basics and start with mindset. 

Thoughts become things as Mike Dooley always says so choose the good ones.

And so today I WILL! 

In what ways do you find yourself struggling? If you need help navigating these changes, please contact me.

70,000 Chances

I heard the other day that we have 60-70,000 thoughts a day. And of those thoughts 90% of them are the same thoughts we had the day before. And those thoughts are about things of the past or things in the future. 

So what would happen if you brought your thoughts into the present? Allowing the thoughts that trouble you to be released, and get really present in this moment? You have 70,000 chances a day to do just that.

Perhaps one way to get there is to journal all of your thoughts onto a piece of paper. Allowing everything that comes up to be placed on that paper. Once complete feel how your body and mind are free of tension and stress. 

Following you can choose to keep the paper and that’s fine but if you feel the urge to burn it or throw it away then do that. 

In the work that I do I have found that utilizing the time to really do what I call a brain dump (either on paper or during our sessions) to release those thoughts that keep you stuck in the past/future and you are missing out on the present moment. Journaling is so beneficial. 

If you like additional help let me know. 

Happy Friday! 🖊 📔 

High Performance Habits

Ever heard the phrase "The cobbler’s children have no shoes”? It's a rough translation of a Spanish proverb, and the idea is that someone with a specific skill is often too busy assisting others that their own affairs, especially related to their trade, go unattended.

Well, this Cobbler's kids are BAREFOOT.

Today, I came to the realization that - while I've been telling clients to journal and talking about the importance of journaling here on my blog and social - my own journaling practice has taken a back seat for some time now. I know it’s such a powerful tool to keep me focused and aligned with my higher self where I can receive the messages that will offer me guidance, support, and love.

Clearly, this isn’t something I’m proud of, but I want to openly and honestly share this with you because we all need a little reminder of what we need to be doing and new motivation to do it. I recently ordered Brendon Burchard's book "High Performance Habits," and it's REALLY been helpful in re-energizing me to consistently journal again.

I’m attaching a picture below with a few journal prompts from the book that might help you as well. Enjoy!

And, as always, please feel free to contact me if you want to work with me as a one-on-one accountability coach, speaker, or workshop leader. One of the things I journal about - and call in more of, any chance I can get - is to have as many of these opportunities as possible. I would be honored to add you to the fold of my many happy, motivated, inspired, unstuck and unstoppable clients.

Believe

From this mornings reading — hope it resonates with you as it does for me. 👇🏻

“Please, my friends, believe in your heart and your voice and your mission no matter what, no matter how small it all feels now. 

The journey to legend begins the moment our bias for ease and comfort is overpowered by our drive for challenge and contribution.

Don't forget that growth and greatness often come from those seemingly endless, fruitless days and nights of faith and discipline. 

Keep working, keep at it, believe.”

- Brendon Burchard
