Looking out over the incredible NYC 😍😍😍 I just wanted to say thank you SO MUCH to @bravotv for bringing me in and in turn am now experiencing the most amazing things and just being spoiled beyond. This was the view from the terrace from my hotel I stayed at for WWHL and I stood staring out for a good hour just entranced by the view, thinking how goddam lucky I was to be standing in that spot and to have all these insanely amazing things happen to me. Let’s all give a massive pakipaki (applause) to Bravo!!!
The last week has been spent recovering from an Upper Respiratory Infection...and decades of unresolved sadness, disappointment, and suppressed upsets.
Did you know that those lingering negative thoughts, feelings, and energy often manifests in physical ailments? It really isn’t news...I just was punched in the face with that reality (again) this last week.😣
Childhood trauma especially impacts cellular health in adulthood...and in many cases it ends up being cardiovascular in nature due to constant fight/flight surges and hormonal imbalances 😷 Super fun stuff, right?!?
I kind of knew some illness would manifest out of all of the personal/inner work I’m doing, but...could it be a little less life disrupting? I slept 14 hours straight one night and legit napped on and off again until bedtime. I’m incredibly grateful that I have the space in life to do that...and, I don’t have the patience for it when I have so much I want to accomplish.
Anyhow...on the mend, getting back on my yoga mat tonight, and creating greatness...while I keep sharpening that sword (mySelf) ❤️ Knight-free.
What Rook Taught Us About Life
1. Work hard AND play hard
2. Play ball until everyone is too tired to throw anymore
3. Always turn the other cheek when someone growls at you, they’re probably having a bad day
4. Others can’t always read you when you don’t have a tail. Smile if you can’t wag!
5. When you want something really bad don’t stop barking until you get it!
6. Play with kids and spend time with the elderly.
7. You can change someone’s day with a smile.
8. Find your own quiet place to recharge.
9. Let people love you. It’s good for both of you!
10. Adopt don’t shop
❤️RECEIVE WITH GRACE
Woman if you can’t receive a compliment then how can you receive big love in your life
If you can’t receive a coffee from a friend then how can you expect to receive radical abundance?
If you can’t give yourself flowers, it will be near on impossible for you to receive them from anyone else. .
If you shy away from or deflect compliments or kind gestures making a big deal out of them becomes you don’t feel worthy, refusing them or insisting on paying people back - then you need to learn to receive graciously.
It’s all about knowing your divine worthiness, there is nothing wrong with being grateful and we all should be, it’s when you actually can’t receive something without turning it into a huge deal, instead of just saying - thank you. .
KNOW that you are worthy of receiving!
Women have issues receiving, men are so much better at it, like they get that it’s our divine right, but we are stuck in some old beliefs and stories, maybe they go back beyond this lifetime to ancestral wounds (most likely). .
Beautiful it’s time to open to receive - sit or stand tall let your shoulder blades drop down your back and allow the heart to open, close your eyes and feel your worthiness inside of you - take a moment to tap into this feeling of power and potential, breathe into that feeling deeply for a few minutes. Take this feeling with you throughout your day and top your self up when you start to feel less than or catch your shoulders hunching over to cover your heart! .
Mantra - I am fucking worthy of all I desire ❤️❤️
It's alright not to be OK! Sometimes we need to fall apart to find ourselves. This is one of the biggest lessons I have learnt this year.. When I look back at this photo I do not recognise myself from my life before I began this journey....everything from on the outside looked perfect but really inside I was falling apart but I still pretended I had it all together.
It reminds me of how grateful I am to how far I have come & to those who have been there for me through it all!
Give yourself time to learn to love yourself like you love others & you will be free to live who you are truly meant to be.
Paula’s Southern Fried Chicken, Georgia Fried Catfish (fried with flour & cornmeal), Green Beans, Collard Greens, Poppyseed Tossed Salad, Baked Mac & Cheese, and Cheddar Biscuits was very delicious! My favorites were the catfish (fried perfectly crisp) and collard greens (which had a wonderful zest to them). Oh! And the Ooey Gooey cake was heavenly!!!! 😇😋 But I didn’t get a pic of it because I was so full that I had to get it to go..🚗 When I first walked into her store my heart started pounding 😍❤️, I could hardly contain my excitement, a southern foodie paradise! 😊😃It took a lot of personal restraint not to buy the whole store out 😳 Thank you @pauladeensfamilykitchen for this wonderful shopping & dining experience 🙏🏼 #homecook#southernfood#pauladeensfamilykitchen#comfortfood#joy#foodislove
When is the last time you looked in the mirror and reflected on the life you’re living? Is what you are doing , being, living a big enough dream worthy of you?
One of the things I love about having my coach is what he reflects to me in service of living the life I want. One of the things I LOVE about being coach is standing for people to be who they truly are and live their life exactly how they say they dream about. What is in your way of living, being, loving the way you want to? If you are interested in discovering more of who you are, I have 2 spots in my practice available for YOU. Reach out let’s discover together. 💛 #coaching#accomplishmentcoaching#lifebydesign#liveyourbestlife#joy#freedom

Brief candle? No. Make life a torch that burns as bright as possible to illuminate for others.
We’re at it again... day three and having even more fun together than before!!! There’s just something about coming together to enjoy creativity with the art of God’s Word 💜🙌🏼!!! These women are the BEST! I have appreciated leading this study SO MUCH!!! Our assignment? Trusting God with the precious cargo of our own baskets... or better yet... our own ARKS... because the KJV refers to Miriam’s basket as an “ark,” we better understand how much the contents meant to her. What in your life is super precious and you might need to place it in a basket (aka ARK) and hand it over to God?! He is trustworthy, dear one!!! I know it’s difficult to part with the things that matter most. But not handing it over is like robbing yourself of blessings He has waiting for you when you do!!! How can i pray for you today, love???
