Nights weren’t always like last night. They were not fun. On the outside I used to seem like an extrovert with a smile and a shield big enough to block an emotional army. On the inside my truth was introverted, petrified and nervous. Planning a night out used to be torture. I would have to talk myself into going and convince myself I would have fun and swear the pit in my stomach would go away. Many nights it took courage in a bottle to create an illusion of okayness only lea
If you want to shiFt into your power, act powerful! Standing like an Amazon warrior and pretending you’re armed with your own lasso and headdress can communicate you are serious, powerful, and in control. Portray your power with your hands out on hips, feet wide apart, shoulders back, staring confidently and competently forward for 2 minutes. Take up as much space as possible, looking big and visible. Being the powerful person in a situation means extending yourself out as mu
Today is my anniversary. I have been married for 6 years. After over 7 years together, two demanding careers, two amazing kids, 3 four legged babies, and countless beautiful memories, I’d like to think that we’ve done some shiFting! The road hasn’t always been smooth but we’ve laughed a lot more than we’ve cried and we still connect at times like it is our first date, so I feel like we must be doing something right! Wherever you are in your relationship there are always oppor
Have you ever thought: I want to start my own business?
I want to travel the world?
I want to write a book?
Or, I want to get in the best shape ever? I have! Whatever your dream is, what’s stopping you? The only thing that ever stopped me, was me and constantly shoulding all over myself! Then I realized, it is time to make a shiFt. ShiFt is about change, and getting out of where you are now–out of being stuck in the suck and changing your mind, from the root, to change yo
It is okay to have anxiety. It is okay to have doubts. It is okay to be nervous. In fact, anxiety is a physiological or emotional response to perceived threat. Your mind is letting you know there is a concerning thought, and your body is responding. A response is good and means your body is strengthening. Anxiety is an indication that what you are doing is of interest, importance and you care. If you did not have anxiety, you would be non-responsive…. I like responsiveness an
WHAT WOULD YOUR IDEAL BODY LOOK LIKE ? If you want to lose weight and you only talk and focus on weight loss, your body only hears, WEIGHT, and it gains weight. How would you feel at your ideal weight? How would you look. Notice what you like of other bodies with appreciation. Most of all to draw attention to what you want, have appreciation for your body in its current state. Notice it’s functionality and beauty, just the way it is. Thin minds do not think overweight thought
ShiFt your mind – ShiFt your $$$ This time of year can magnify financial stress. Increased bills, increased debt, and increased societal pressures to keep up with the latest in gift giving and holiday fashions! I used to hold my breath as I walked to the mailbox hoping there are no bills and only sale circulars! Now i walk out excited and pumped up to receive a check. I don’t know from where. Maybe from Ed McMann! I just think what it would feel like to receive a check. The m
Your body and mind only do what you tell it it can! Recently, Elyah was learning to ride a bike (no more training wheels)! She was wobbly at first. Then I suggested she say “I am riding a two wheeler! I am riding it”. She took off like the wind. She kept repeating “I AM RIDING, I AM RIDING!” Her smile and words were priceless. “Mommy I did it, I rode all by myself”. Before you do something new or fearful.. Tell yourself you can do it despite how you may feel whether you belie
