What Are You Waiting For?

If I could give one piece of advice its to not give a fuck what someone else thinks and be proud of it!

In the absolute most loving and supportive way possible! Treating others with the utmost respect, ethics, trust, love, courtesy, caring but also staying true to YOU!

I lost “ME” a long time ago. So long ago I don’t even truly remember.

Ive been suppressing my burning desire to be more free. Free from past shit, being proud of exactly who I am, embracing my amazing strengths. To be proud to dream and reach for goals.

This past weekend I spent with 42 incredible women and 1 supportive man at our Elite Retreat North!

I went into this weekend freaking terrified, not truly wanting to go and secretly hoping it would be cancelled. (Yes the leaders who ran the retreat know this haha!).

There was something that was completely drawing me in to attend. Although we had just returned home from Convention, I would have to spend more money – on myself – take time away from my kids, husband, work and home… but I said to my husband “I just have this feeling like I HAVE to do this and NEED this.” Without hesitating he said, then you ARE going!

I left there today feeling SO INCREDIBLY EMPOWERED, INSPIRED, PROUD AND RENEW!

I came home a new woman to my family.

I am already feeling the powerful shift. Supporting my kids in the best way I ever have. I am so proud of both of my children. They remind me each and everyday how differences are SO beautiful, its what makes us, US! I need to best support them by being 100% completely their biggest advocate. Each and every single day of their life.

Going through life not caring what anyone else thinks or says!

Same goes for myself and its a daily work in progress. …and thats ok!

The retreat was held at a beautiful camp called the Olympia Sports Camp near Huntsville. This photo was from Saturday morning on the lake.

For far too long I’ve let past experiences, words, people, situations control me. When really they were shaping me into the woman I am. Ive been so focused on what happened to me – both good and bad. I always questioned, why? Why me? Even if it was something wonderful, Awesome… but why me? Or dwelling on negative things that happen. All of this is what has made me into the person I am today.

This weekend pushed me to be vulnerable, to open up and know that it was OK and I would be ok. It was hard – but it was also something I knew deep down Ive needed to do for a VERY long time. Over 20 years of shit building up… and you know what – we are NEVER alone! To be supported, encouraged, lifted up SO high to believe that ANYTHING is possible – because I AM ME!

WHY NOT ME!?

My burning desire in life is to be free – financially, time, bullshit, stuff.

How incredible would it feel to be mortgage free? I WANT THAT!

How amazing would it be to have quality time for myself, together as a couple and a family? I DESERVE THAT! WE DESERVE THAT!!

What better gift could we give our children than time and traveling the world with them?

How spectacular would it feel to always dream and reach for the stars – being truly happy exactly the way I want to live my life in our newly renovated and finished nest! I AM WORTHY OF THAT!

Be true to what I am feeling, how I live, my ethics, beliefs, goals and dreams. The things we have in our home. The people we surround ourselves with. Letting our true selves shine through and being proud of our differences.

Ive been putting so many limitations on myself. Holding myself back.

My life has been transforming over the past 1.5 years and it feels SO freeing. This weekend was so cleansing, revealing and inspiring to be the BEST me no matter what, who, when or where!

Our lifestyle now is incredibly different than it was 1 year ago, 2 years ago, 5 years ago and well over 10 years! Hell even 3 days ago. I AM PROUD OF THAT.

Its what makes me, what makes my husband, what makes our kids and what makes our family. But it starts with ME! If I don’t believe it, someone could tell me all day long and it wouldn’t truly have an effect.

I am proud …

It’s funny the things that make you giddy excited when you are an adult 😉

All summer we’ve been looking at various couches, pricing, fabric, location, layout etc. After the flood we had not just one sectional to replace, we had two.

Long story short, when we began the basement renos (the first time), we got rid of our old furniture upstairs and moved the basement furniture up. While working on the basement we bought a beautiful sectional (for downstairs) so got rid of the old basement furniture with plans of the sectional moving down and getting something new for upstairs when the upstairs reno was complete. When the basement was finished the couch moved down and we began going to work upstairs. Then the basement flooded and we were left with … a chair and small loveseat.

A couple weeks we both agreed on a couch and chair we both liked. With our to-do list in mind, we also agreed to just let it go and when the time was right the universe would tell us. I literally said this to my husband only a 1-2 night’s before.

On Friday morning I was working away and it hit me… go check out Grey’s – the third time is the charm!

You see we lucked out finding a beautiful sectional couch for our basement the first time I went about a month and a half ago. It is almost identical to the one I had been picturing in my mind that I wanted AND what we had legit been looking at and were going to buy only 3 days later 😉

Two weeks later I had a similar feeling to go check it out… found our two chairs for the bay window in the dining room. I knew I wanted 2 matching chairs that were stylish AND comfortable but would also not block our view! Total score – We all love them!

Last friday, I knew something special was there. 💞

They are almost identical to what we had picked out just last week! Local, amazing price and we could pick up the same day! Bonus… they are super comfy!

I fell asleep on that couch recliner Friday night. Having living room furniture again feels really good for the soul!

Thank you universe! The timing was impeccable!

Do you or someone you love have ADHD?

If you or someone you love has ADHD this campaign will be of interest to you! Take a few moments to check out their anonymous survey in the link below!

This October, during ADHD Awareness Month, CADDAC is launching our “ADHD in Education Awareness/Advocacy Campaign” to draw greater attention to the inequities students with ADHD face when accessing education across Canada.

Over the years CADDAC has spent a great deal of time with parents across Canada discussing their frustrations and concerns about this issue.  Many parents complain that educators lack an understanding of ADHD, that many school systems and ministries of education do not recognize ADHD as a significant impairment to learning and that their children are not receiving equitable access to education.  At the same time we have also heard stories about the positive difference a teacher or principal can make in a child’s life when they truly understand the impact ADHD has on a child’s learning and behaviour.

Do you or someone you love have PCOS or Endometriosis?

Do you have PCOS and/or Endometrosis?

I do and my life has been affected by all they mention below.

Consider taking 10-15 To complete this anonymous survey (link below). The emotional and physical challenges associated with these invisible illnesses are very real and affect every part of a woman’s life as an individual, partner and parent. I truly wish there was proper education and support when I was first diagnosed, I’m confident it wouldn’t have been as difficult as it was on me and just about about every single aspect and relationship in my life. 13 years later and I finally feel like I am healing properly. Thankful I followed my heart!

–Study Info Below Shared With Permission–

Associate Professor Kerry O’Brien, Dr. RoseAnne Misajon & Ms. Georgia Rush at Monash University are conducting research.

In the case of this project wellbeing refers to concepts such as quality of life, body image, intimate relationships/family planning and mental wellbeing.

Positive Sunday Morning Vibes

I love those mornings when I start my day awake and laying still in my bed. Enjoying a tea brought to me by my daughter then making my way to the kitchen.

The gorgeous morning light flooding the kitchen from the new window. Sitting in the warm sunshine in our front window listening to a morning grateful meditation.

Our new Yoga oils in the diffuser – Arise and Align 2 drops each.

Hubby in the kitchen making bacon, eggs with hollandaise sauce for a wonderful brunch.

The day started slow, with our family and down to earth. Grounding me where I need to be and refocus on the priorities ahead for the week. Checking things off the to-do list – with every thing accomplished it brings us a closer to our goals.

How do you like to start your week?
