Joyeux Ostara !
Voici l'équinoxe de printemps, la nature se réveille, l'air se radoucit, les premières fleurs sortent.
L'équilibre parfait entre le jour et la nuit
C'est aussi une pleine lune puissante qui appelle au renouveau. Prenons un moment pour se recentrer et réfléchir aux changements qui ont eu lieu dans notre vie, ainsi qu'aux changements que l'on aimerait voir se produire.
Bon équinoxe à toutes et à tous 🖤🌿 (la roue des saisons n'est pas de moi)
*The only thing that is consistent in life is change*
It's funny how we, or maybe I should just speak for myself, want to develop, work hard to learn more, achieve more, better ourselves. But that requires us to consistently change. That change can be very uncomfortable at times and and it's frankly much easier to be comfortable and complacent.
At the same time, we need some constants in our lives so as not to completely feel out of balance. Its important to have supportive friends and/or family you know you can count on to help keep some consistency in our lives. When too much change occurs at the same time, we can feel out of balance, unstable or emotional. They say some of the most stressful times in our lives are changing jobs or careers, buying a house, divorce or separation, getting married, death of a family member, illness or injury, having children, losing a pet etc. (Let me personally just add empty nesting and identity shifts). Sometimes it's even the good events that can cause a lot of stress.
Neurofeedback brain training can help you deal with stressful events in a healthy way and help you process them more efficiently and more quickly. You're able to walk through life more gracefully and with more confidence and are better able to handle whatever is thrown at you.
Kudos to our 5th grade!⠀
Our Student Government had a Soda Tab drive that brought in over 75,000 tabs!⠀
Today, we delivered the tabs to the Ronald McDonald House and our 5th grader who brought in the most tabs, Anastasia, presented it to them along with her grandfather, Herb.⠀
What will 75,000 soda tabs do?⠀
For every 15,000 tabs brought in, $2,000 is donated. $10,000 was raised from our 75,000 tabs donation. Our donation will cover the cost of housing various families for 33 nights at the Ronald McDonald house. ⠀
Our girls are acting in true Serviam spirit, "to be of SERVICE to others in need." We are grateful we could be a blessing to the many families that will benefit from this donation!⠀

Research has shown that the longer something exists, the better it is perceived.
People who were told a particular tree was 4500 years old gave it more positive reviews than the people who were told the same tree was 500 years old.
We associate longevity with higher quality... but that’s not always true. And this thinking can keep us stuck in unfulfilling careers and loveless relationships.
People who come to me are terrified to leave a soul-sucking job and tell me “it’s the devil I know versus the devil I don’t know.” -
Other people stay in toxic relationships because they’re unsure if they will ever find love again.
Our brains are hardwired to stick with predictable negative consequences rather than face an uncertain outcome.
But embracing uncertainty and change is the only path to growth. And growth is the only lasting path to happiness.
Life is paradoxical that way.
Remember that your brain was never designed to make you happy. It’s purely a survival device. If you want to grow and become more, you must get out of your head and follow your heart. You must do the thing that intuitively feels right, even when it makes no logical sense.
You must let go of what no longer serves you to create space for what is new and expansive.
Leave a comment and let me know what you’d like to create more room for in your life.
Are you resisting a shift?! -
Our lives are constantly shifting...they can be big all at once crazy life changing shifts! OR They can be very small shifts daily that compound over time. -
What do I mean by “shift”¿ a CHANGE a GROWTH in your life which is causing you to see, speak, and act differently. These shifts can be really tough to navigate...it’s way too easy to resist them since we can get really comfortable in our little bubbles -
To fully dive into the change that is happening in your life, it means we must release some baggage that is gettin’ in the way 🙅🏼♀️ out with the old, in with the new...🎼 you get the reference 😉 and it’s 100% correct. We won’t have room for anything NEW in our lives if we can’t let go of the old! That shift, the new beginnings that are knocking on your door cannot come in if you don’t have space to accommodate them. 🤗 #betterlife#neverperfectalwaysenough#mentalhealthawareness#hellospring#shifting#change#embracechange#letgo#humpday#beyourbest
“You stop attracting certain people when you heal the parts of you that once needed them”. This is true.
After my Dad died I felt a lot of guilt.
I blamed myself for a long time for his death.
I dated guys who were addicts.
Who were insecure and manipulative.
And who had mental health issues.
Just like him.
I remember when I left the father of my older two kids (a guy who is 17 years older than me), I sought the help of a family therapist to help me unravel all the shit I was going through.
All my traumas, all my guilt, all my childhood.
And she opened my eyes to something that I didn’t see.
I had ‘Daddy Issues’ and I did date guys just like him, in the hopes of trying to save them because I couldn’t save my Dad.
Relationship after relationship the cycle continued until she opened my eyes that that’s what I was doing.
At 14, I dated a 21year old.
At 15, I dated a 25year old.
At 16, I dated a guy who was older (I can’t remember exactly).
At 17 I dated a 30 year old.
At 18, I dated my kids Dad who was 35.
I just thought that’s what I was into but it wasn’t, it was a pattern that repeated that I had to learn how to break.
When my therapist made me aware of what I was doing I finally disengaged from that repetitive cycle and stopped attracting those kinds of men.
It sounds disgusting but it’s a real thing.
My Dads death was not my fault and I couldn’t save him.
I just had to heal the part of me that thought I could.
And now life is good.
Put an end to any negative patterns in your families history.
Be the one who rises up and changes things 🌞

The frog has shown up. Bringer of the waters~we are becoming liquid consciousness. Prepare for all the changes by accepting fluid being. It is magnifying what does not serve will be transformed and consumed. Surf and flow right into it as you leap to the great lusch garden-your inner paradise. Time to welcome a new cycle💧
Bless our waters💦
