Happy Self Love Saturday!

This video marks day 7 of the my 21 day detox, for those of you who are doing it, how are you doing? Today I woke up without gas or tummy aches so I’m feeling pretty happy.

In this video I want to reflect on Self Sabotage and why/how we do it to ourselves and why its important for us to try our best to stop! If you notice a certain pattern of behavior that you do that always ends in the same result of NOT getting what you want, then it’s time actively do something different. In the book “The Artist’s Way” they use a great analogy of treating your talents/potential like a young inexperienced horse that you need to pull along because they are going to have fears and doubts and resistance.

Looking at self sabotage in this way is really helpful, but along with talking about self sabotage I want us to start to hold each other accountable and I believe it’s time to look amongst your friends and talk about your wants, dreams, desires and goals and how we can all help each other to grow and ultimately WIN.

(New Video Post) #21DayDetox Days 4-6

Hey guys!

I’m officially on Day 7 of the 21 Day Detox, you’ll see a recap of my day in tomorrow’s #SelfLoveSaturday video but for now catch up on Days 4-6 with me. So far the challenge is going well, I’m still craving donuts, cupcakes and cookies but I’m keeping strong and not having them. I’m also recognizing how often my brain/body trys to sabotage me by telling me “it’s okay to cheat…just have one” etc etc. The mantra “don’t cheat yourself” keeps going around in my head like a loop and it’s working! If you’re doing the 21 day detox let me know how you’re doing in the comments below.

(New Video Post) “Actions Speak Louder Than Words” [Vlog

Happy Self Love Saturday!!

“Actions Speak Louder Than Words” is a common saying that we’ve all heard a trillion times, but this week I had a lesson in accepting it.

It seems simple but over the years I have had a hard time truly accepting the actions of others when it goes against my image of them or getting something I want. But this week I think I finally got it and then I realized the same goes for myself in terms of accountability, am I just talking the talk? Or am I walking the walk too?

Our words mean nothing if there’s no action to back it up and this week I had a lot of self reflection and questions for myself because there’s nothing louder than the volume of our actions. So ask your self, how often to point fingers in regards to your situation? What are you physically doing to change your situation and who in your life are you listening to in the wrong way? Listening to their words instead of their actions? Check out my video below and let me know how your week has been!

(New Video Post) Don’t Make It Complicated – Be Honest #SelfLoveSaturday


Happy Self Love Saturday!

Today’s message is inspired by my upcoming series Beyond Complicated which drops this Wednesday March 9th on my youtube channel! Woop! In Beyond Complicated we explore the simple miscommunications that happen within relationships when we are not fully honest with our thoughts and intentions and needs. One of the most important things I’ve learned on my self love journey is just be honest, with my self and with others, especially anyone that I am in an intimate relationship with. It makes life a whole lot simpler when I’m honest with how I feel and everything that is on my heart is understood. Check out the video and be on the look out for Beyond Complicated!

(New Video Post) Start Planning For 2016 #SelfLove

shutterstock_263635745

Hey guys!

On today’s #SelfLove Video I want to talk to you about getting started on your 2016 goals and plans. I don’t believe in starting your new year resolutions on January 1st, instead I think you should begin your new year resolutions by no later than Dec 1st! Get started on your year early! For me, by time Canadian Thanksgiving hits (early October) I’m already planning what I want my next year to look like. The daydreaming and planning process is one of my favorite things to do, whether writing it down, building a new vision board or simply watching Ted Talks to gain inspiration, it was one of the most relaxing and fulfilling things you can do for yourself to prepare you for next year. Check out my video below and tell me some of your 2016 goals in the comments below.

Happy Self Love Saturday!

Hey guys, today I want to share a video I did while I was exploring Venice Beach in Los Angeles. There’s so much beautiful art in that area and little bits of inspiration in every corner. I happened to stumble on a mural that said “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” and it inspired me to talk about that subject on this edition of SelfLoveSaturday. Check out the video below,

(New Video Post) Relinquishing Control in Your Relationship #SelfLoveSaturday

Quotation-Nicole-Kidman-control-desire-future-happiness-Meetville-Quotes-224847

Happy Self Love Saturday!

Recently I got a message from God, I say this because in one day I ended up having two separate conversations about the same topic. When something like that happens to me, I know it’s not coincidence, it’s a message and I have to take it seriously. The topic at hand was relationships and understanding, accepting and relinquishing control of the person infront of you. It’s sometimes hard to accept the fact that the people we’re in relationships with can change, love is a two way street and with that you have to accept that you cannot control the person infront of you. Acceptance of who they are and who they are becoming or grown to be will help you dealing with any┬áchanges happening. But just like everything else in life, our relationships change for a reason and at the end of the day you have to trust in God that he is always guiding you to the places and people that you are supposed to be with.
