Trust the Process.

Have you ever had a dream that you thought was impossible? You thought it was impossible but it would never truly go away. That, my friend, is your purpose! And I'm here to tell you that the nagging, burning, desire deep down in your soul is here to stay until you answer the call. How do you do it? It's simple really. Just like learning to walk all over again. You put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward.  You fall down, get back up and keep going. Repeat, Add Grit. Forget the Nay-Sayers. Push. Achieve. Push More. Sow the seed and SUCCESS will follow!

Cultivating Gratitude.

Thank you. It's two simple words with such profound meaning. Have you ever truly stopped to think about what "Thank you" means to you? Who are you thanking? And for what? Journaling is a critical part of the gratitude process. Putting pen to paper really opens our eyes to what we have in front of us.  Try to think of just 3 things each morning you are thankful for and write them down. Repeat for 3 weeks, then longer.  See how you feel. No, each day will not magicially be perfect but I guarantee you'll find more beauty on the days you struggle. And THAT is a gift in itself.

The Mental Shift.

So you're probably wondering, what MENTAL shift is she talking about? Well, it's simple really. Learning to think OUTSIDE of yourself.  And what I mean by that is learning to rise above your troubles, concerns and setbacks. Cultivating a mental shift involves doing some deep spritiual work. Meditating. Breathing exercises. Spending time in nature. Tuning into your Higher power. This process can evolve quickly for some but with others it may be a gradual process. Either way, it's well worth the time and effort. Find mentors that inspire you. Listen to audio books and more importantly to your inner guide that will lovingly tell you what path leads to the greater good. Then, once you're there, help others find their true path as well!
