Just because things feel hard right now, doesn’t mean that you’re a failure. It’s not a reflection of you. Can you acknowledge and honor that maybe this is just a difficult season of life for you?
You can’t hold yourself up to the same expectations of “getting things done” as when things are going smoothly and great.
Life is a constant dance…
...between faith and fear, coming and going, giving and receiving, expanding and contracting.
It’s ok if things feel hard right now. But, please my friend, don’t make it harder on yourself with self-judgement and criticism.
Give yourself grace. Allow yourself to rest. And, know that the things that absolutely need to get done will get done.
And, if you’re looking for more support, let’s chat. I have time set aside on my calendar specifically to chat with you. No pitch, gimmick, or hidden agenda. Just my little way of offering you greater clarity, a space for self-compassion, and practical tools to help you move forward.

Oh, and one more thing, if you know someone who could use this message today, use the button below to share this with them...
We’re a year and a half into this pandemic and, if at some point over this past year and a half, you haven’t felt burnout, then I want YOUR secret!...
The truth is this has been exhausting, draining, and completely nerve-wracking. Mixed messages. Polarizing opinions. Being pushed to your edge at work while navigating school and activities for your kids…
It’s enough to drive the best of us crazy!
But, here’s the thing…
These moments that push you to your edge are here for a reason. There’s always something more to learn, grow, or lean into. These moments force you to dive deeper into living in alignment with what’s most important to you and letting go of the rest.
It can be hard though. It’s hard to let go of things that you once thought were important and open yourself up to the uncertainty of a new way of doing things.
But, there’s also freedom in it…
A freedom of releasing yourself from the push and pull, tug of war of what you actually need to do versus what you think is expected of you. Of being ok with saying “no” to invitations and opportunities that don’t align with you, leaving space open for those “heck yeah” moments and opportunities that make life feel juicy, sweet, and beautiful!...
I’m leading a free training tomorrow where I’ll give you 3 Steps to go from Burned Out to Restored Radiance.
In this training, you’ll learn how to:

Oil gets a bad rep…
Yeah, of course, you don’t want to overdo the processed oils and fried foods. But, there’s such a thing as “good oils” that can actually make you feel more balanced, nurtured, loved, and even help you sleep better!
One of the things I’ve learned over my past 11 years of studying and practicing Ayurveda is that you need to adjust your self-care routines for the season. Life, just the calendar year, has different seasons. What looks like “balance” for you in 1 season can be completely different in another season.
Your body is always sending you signals. It’s your job to tune into those signals, get curious about what they’re telling you, and make adjustments so that you can live in alignment and harmony with life itself. When you do this, you find greater ease, joy, peace, and happiness.
I’m not saying any of this is easy. Actually, it’s a lifelong practice and journey. I always tell my clients “become a student of your life.”
So what’s all this got to do with oil?
It’s the Fall season. You may have noticed the leaves are changing color, there’s a crisp dry quality in the air, and a breeze rustling through the leaves outside. These are qualities of Vata, or the Air/Ether elements in Ayurveda - dry, light, mobile, cool.
These qualities are reflected in your body too. That can show up as dry skin, constipation, insomnia, and a general sense of restlessness or even anxiety.
Oil up your life!!
Physically, mentally, and emotionally, you want to add oily, smooth, unctuous things into your life. What does that look like?
Here are some examples:
Want more tips specific to you and the season of life you’re going through right now?
Let’s hop on an Illumination Call and shed light on what your body’s trying to tell you in this current season and what you can do about it. This is a completely free, no-pitch call to give you the clarity and results you’re after…
Have you ever had a song stuck in your head and you don’t even know why or where it came from?!?!
This happened to me recently...Forever Young. You know that 80’s song…
I want to be forever young…
*Here's the music video if you want some ridiculousness in your life today :-) It's very 80's!
Over and over and over again…
I had no idea why this song popped in my head, and for the life of me I couldn’t get it to stop playing on repeat.
And then, I looked over on my dresser and read the words on the bath balm that was gifted to me recently and saw the words “Forever Young” written in pink across the top of the box and I just started laughing!
This is how powerful words are! The words you use, and even the words that you see in your environment. Your subconscious is always picking up information around you, drawing connections, and trying to make sense of it all whether you’re aware of it or not.
So, why not be intentional about the words you feed your mind?
One of my favorite practices for this is AFFIRMATIONS. When you affirm something, you’re powerfully telling your subconscious mind that this is important and true.
The thing is how often are you unknowingly affirming negative self-beliefs? Things like “I’m not good enough...I could never have what she has...I don’t have what it takes…”
You have the power to shift those negative self-beliefs into positive ones, and when you do, you’ll discover confidence and self-worth like you never thought was possible.
I’m leading a free training tomorrow where I’ll talk about this in greater depth and share other tips for building greater confidence and self-worth so that you can feel fulfilled in your career and relationships.
The training is at 2pm EST tomorrow, September 29th. Will I see you there?
“I realized while going through these lessons that I’m coming back to myself. A lot of these things, I feel like I’ve had them inside of myself but somehow veered away from them and got lost, not taking the time to do these things for myself that I used to do. I realized that I can take that time to do these things for me because who’s going to take care of me if I don’t take care of me?”
This is what Astride, one of my clients in Reclaim Your Radiance, said to me recently.
You see, this is a journey of coming back to yourself…
Of remembering who you are at the core and creating a life that reflects that, instead of getting lost in all the to-do’s that leave you feeling depleted, overwhelmed, and burned out.
So, how do you do it? How do you come back to yourself?
Keep reading, or Watch the 3-Minute Video Below….
I’ve created a process that walks you through 3-phases….I call it the C.A.R method, so you’re going to take this CAR to go from where you are now to where you want to be, to that ideal life where you’re sipping on a cup of tea while watching the sunrise over the ocean without a care in the world…
So, C is clarity. First, you have to clear the chaos. You have to clear out all the cobwebs and all the noise, and get back to what’s most important to you. You do this through a visioning process and creating daily routines.
Then, A is for acceptance. You need to make sense of the now. Accepting all the parts of yourself and your life situations that’ve led you to where you are now, and knowing that you can choose differently moving forward. You do this through tuning into your body’s signals. Getting out of your head and into your body.
Finally, after all that inner work, you come to R for rebuilding. Creating a plan of action. Looking at your career, relationships, and your life through this new lens of clarity and acceptance to rebuild these parts of your life in a way that reflects your priorities and who you are at the core.
This is the process I lead all my clients through, whether in my 1-1 program or the Reclaim Your Radiance Group program.
So, if you’re ready to experience this yourself, I invite you to take the very first step, which is scheduling an Illumination Call.
This is a free call where you’ll shine light on what’s going on in your life right now, identify your obstacles, and come away with clear actionable next steps to move forward.
This is NOT a pitch or a sales call. This call is all about you and getting you results.
If you want to learn more about the ways I can continue to support you, just bring it up during the call and we’ll set up a separate time to chat about it.
So, I’m including the link below to schedule your Illumination Call. Remember, all change starts with taking that very first step.
I can’t wait to chat with you soon!
