Some people want perfectly coiffed hair (and there’s nothing wrong with that – and some days that’s me!), and some people would rather toss it up in a messy bun and instead use that time to get some fresh air by the water, while the sun wakes up. ☀️
Today the messy bun was me! I soaked it all in and was talking to the baby, telling him or her I can’t wait to take them to the beach, to dip their feet in the ocean for the first time and feel the sand between their toes… so many exciting things to look forward to! 😍
(And no, I don’t feel weird talking to an unborn baby!)
Mamas, did you talk to your baby while they were in utero?
Happy February, happy Friday!
Bloodwork today, hoping that it reflects the insulin is continuing to do its job, and if so, discussing the possibility of getting off the pills, as I don’t feel they did anything and I think everyone knows how I feel about pharmaceuticals (I realize and accept that I am now married to insulin for life…)
But if not today, we are closer; I know it!
Isn’t that all any of us ever want is to FEEL GOOD?
We move our bodies to feel good, stay loose, stay fluid.
We fuel our bodies with foods that make us feel good – if something doesn’t agree with our body, we don’t eat it, or we do sparingly and with the realization that it may upset our belly.
We work to keep stress at bay so we can feel good.
We do things we enjoy, with people we enjoy, so we can feel good.
We live, we love, and we laugh, so we can feel good!
Feeling good is the ultimate goal, so don’t be afraid to do the things that get you there.
It’s different for everyone, so do YOU!
This morning, the girl filling my coffee order was so excited to show me her own new glass cup – the same one as mine except pink!
And I didn’t hear her at first, and she had to repeat herself, but she told me MINE inspired HERS, and I mean, that felt good! It felt good to know I helped inspire someone to do something that lessens their impact on the world and helps heal it to a better place! ❤️🌎
People might roll their eyes, but this is why we SHARE – if even one person is inspired because of it, it’s worth it!
And yes, small measures absolutely do add up, and it’s up to us to make a difference!
Isn’t it funny how RESISTANT we are to the very things that could HELP us feel better if we would just ALLOW them the opportunity to do so?
I’ve been transparent about how resistant I was to acupuncture because the idea of voluntarily sticking a needle in my body – of ANY size – is not my idea of a good time… yet in a twist I was NOT expecting, I CRAVE these appointments now, because I know how they make me FEEL!
I purposely scheduled my monthly acupuncture appointment to be right after my trip so it could help me get the stressors out of my body, get back to feeling at least somewhat mentally sharp, process all the emotions of the last few weeks and just give me an outlet (and an excuse to relax 😉)
So funny, if you told me a year ago I’d be counting the days til my next appointments…
What’s something you resisted for a long time?
The leftover Summer gunk. The candy gunk (yep, totally had a few pieces of candy after my 90+ day streak ended). The Thanksgiving gunk.
It’s time. Time to #unstuffmyself!
I’ve strayed a little too far from the badass healthier lifestyle I had grown to live and love – the one that was keeping my Diabetes under control and had me feeling GOOD.
I am shaking myself off and focusing on going forward, back to feeling light and energized, starting with a gentle 3 day nutritional reset (one where I eat REAL FOOD – no starvation tactics here!), to get rid of all the fluffy gunk bogging me down!
I have done this 3 day cleanse several times now and felt fantastic each and every time, physically AND mentally!
Could you use a nutritional reset? Let’s chat!
Follow the path of love. We live in a world where often, we hear more about the ugly than we do the beautiful.
But the beauty is there. Love, respect, compassion, empathy… all of these are hallmarks of a better world.
Lead by example!
What will you do to better the world today; to make the beauty stand out?
When you walk through a store or down the street, do you greet people you come across? I used to always have my face down, no eye contact made, and just doing my thing… but about a year ago, I started looking up, making eye contact, smiling, and saying hello, and it’s so simple, but makes you feel so good.
There are tons of things that wouldn’t even exist if not for someone saying hello – you might never have talked to your spouse, you may never have met your best friend, you may never have come across the business partner with which you created an awesome company…
For me, someone looking to help people change their lives, and the world, it starts with saying HELLO. Without greeting people, the relationship will never begin to build, and that’d be quite a pity.
Go out and say HELLO.
