@wld_jewelry popped by the house yesterday and surprised me with this beautiful tile mountainscape she made 😍 I have been trying to come up with a design for a coat rack/shelf for the front entryway, and I wanted to make a wooden mountainscape for it. I stalled not having the design exactly as I wanted and this gift was the perfect addition and inspiration for a shelf! Annie knows my style too well!! I have no idea where this wood came from, but I had two peices that were the same size. I decided to use the broken piece as the back, I used the other piece to cut a 3" shelf to spend the entire width and two 2 1/2" gussets to help support the shelf. I built and mounted this shelf in two hours. The design is simple, but I absolutely love the outcome.
Let me know what you think about this shelf!
How often do you do something just for you? With NO time limit! 🙌
I decided to take my Friday flex day I’ve created for myself - the day I get to choose to work or play - and spent the last two hours cuddled with my puppies reading. Not to mention reading fiction, sometimes Hong I rarely do anymore.
It reminded me to be mindful, present, and allow myself to simply enjoy. 💖
Yes, I thoroughly enjoy my work - I get to do so many things I’m passionate about and make a living doing it. But I tend to work too much. Many days, I work into the evenings or late nights (or early mornings, however you look at it 😉), because it’s hard to stop. There’s always something to work on.
How many of you have felt guilty for sitting on the couch some nights when you know you could be working on something?
Girl, I hear you!
So yes, I could have been working on something, anything.
But I remembered, this is exactly the life I wanted. I wanted to work for myself, make my own schedule, be flexible, enjoy more, spend time with our animals and more time together.
So I celebrated that. I enjoyed every second 💖
Think back to when you wanted what you have now. How can you celebrate that today? ⤵️
You can change your circumstances or fold under pressure. The way to change your circumstances start with the words you think.
What is your ideas about your current circumstance doing for your situation??? It will either help or hurt.
Aaaargh.. so excited about this weekend... lots of learning and work to be done... but will be worth it!
Drop and give me 20! 🤪
Ha! You’d be lucky if I made it 20 metres these days but the weather here is teasing me and I’m keen to hit the pavement. #wontlastlong 👟
We’ve got footy, kids birthday parties and time planned at the beach with fam 🌞🌊⛱🍹🍦 What does your weekend look like?
Have you ever felt this way?
I learned it the hard way to not allow little things to bother me and say “no” to things I don’t want. That got me to work a little harder on letting go and not letting little things get to me.
Lessons I’ve learned:
• Don’t worry and let go of what’s outside of your control: in the past or in the future
• Accept reality and focus on what’s in your control
• Focus on the Big Picture. Don’t let a little thing ruin your entire day
• Learn to put things in perspective
• Remember that we all make mistakes
• Ask yourself if it will matter in 5 years
Despite the fact that you can’t always control the things that happen to you or the things others think and do, you can always control how you decide to respond. Letting something bother you causes stress and unhappiness for yourself. Instead, make the choice that brings you more happiness by focusing your energy somewhere else.
When something goes wrong, you have two choices. You can slip into a rage, or let it go. Making the choice to stop letting the little things bother you will bring you life-changing happiness, and you will be thankful for your own shift in perspective.
How do your clients recognize your value? Talk more about them and less about your service. You’re more likely to grab their attention with great questions than a pitch.
The specific questions you ask revolve around the problem you solve.

That look you make when God is moving in your life 🙌🏽Daughter of a king 😉
What if boys and girls were raised the same
It is said- Boys are raised to be brave, Girls are raised to be perfect
Looking back through my life I can honestly say I believe this to be entirely true
As I was hearing about keeping up with “ladylike behavior” my male peers were being encouraged to do brave things and act tough… to “toughen up”. Sound familiar?
I carried this perfectionist mindset with me throughout my entire life, and even though I've done a shit ton of work in this area it's still prevelant at times
I found myself like many other women and moms feeling the pressure to have everything just right. A clean and tidy house at all times, cause you never know who might stop by or when
The pressure to be the “hostess with the mostest” and have every single detail thought out, decorations in place, the perfect theme, food, drinks and matching cups to top it all off. To make sure to speak and engage with every guest- regardless how many.
The pressure to be able to handle the load - alone and never ask for help
The pressure to work like you don't have kids and contribute your share financially, but raise kids like you don't work
The pressure to put everyone else first and yourself last at all times, indefinitely
The truth is…
I am BRAVE!
I am TOUGH- let's be honest being a mom ain't for the faint of heart it's not easy or perfect. Moms are superhero's whether they love being SAHM or they juggle working and raising babies
I am NOT perfect, I like my house to be clean- but my kids play outside, in the mud! I served thanksgiving this year on paper plates, with a fabulous turkey I got in the mail
Not everyone approves of me being a work at home mom, and I don't care! I'm doing it FOR ME sand for every momma out there who knows in her soul that she's “meant for more than wiping booger's and folding laundry” and I'm proud of that!
To become a highly sought after influencer who is a leader in the Mompreneur field it takes courage and toughness and being brave
So when you are raising your boys to be brave and tough and take no shit… do the world a favor and do the same for your daughters too.❤️

Celebrating my one year anniversary with Arbonne today!!🌟⠀
I remember feeling lost, scared about the future, wondering if there was something more out there. I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, but I felt like I was spinning my wheels. I wasn’t having an impact on lives I had always craved. My heart was yearning for more in life⠀
I remember when I first heard about Arbonne. I thought it was another one of those skincare companies grandmas use. I wanted nothing to do with it. I didn’t know anything about skincare nor makeup. It wasn’t for me⠀
After three years of putting my nose in the air, telling myself I was too good, I finally caved. I was so caught up worrying about what other people would think of me. What would they say⠀
It wasn’t until this day last year, sitting at a bar, catching up with an old friend @krissyb32 that I decided enough was enough. I had NOTHING to lose and everything to gain. I had my ‘what if’ moments and my doubts but I knew if I continued doing what I was doing, I’d forever be in the same place. I wasn’t okay with that⠀
Today I am my own boss. I work from my phone wherever my heart desires. I no longer trade time for money. I wake up whenever I want. I’m financial independent. I’m able to give back in ways I’ve never imagined. I’m able to spend time with my family and friends WHENEVER I want. Freedom to do what I want, whenever I want is EVERYTHING to me⠀
My advice? Do something today your future self will thank you for. It’s worth it, I promise you🌟⠀
Comment below and tell us how Arbonne has changed your life 👇🏼 Let the world know what’s possible!!

Head over to @hustleandmotivatemarketing to check out my story!
Two weeks into NMC, I got asked “what makes your cookies unique?” - I panicked. No matter what I said it felt so regular.
I thought, Why AM I selling cookies in a market of so many capable bakers that can likely do the same thing? I’m not even a baker by trade.
Anybody could look up a recipe, make cookies and nail it.
I would get CREAMED by someone who has actually taken the time to study baking.
I have just spent a lot of time perfecting something I was so drawn to.
Every single cookie is made with so much love for the art and a passion for creating.
Burrowed in my sacred kitchen space, I bake.
Cookie by cookie
No production machines
No other bakers
Just me, my mixer and 90s hip hop radio- every cookie is graced by the sounds of the SoCal hip hop greats 🎶some how, some way, I keep comin’ up with funky ass shit like every single day 🎶
My mind usually goes nuts putting together ingredients from every flavor that has come across my palette (sweet or savory). So unique cookies come from the fact that I live my life in the “what-if’s” of food.
My thoughts often circle “what would happen if I mixed x and y ingredients together?” Sometimes it’s the most delightful thing I’ve ever created, sometimes it’s crap.. that’s just the name of the game.
So to every creator, baker, cook, maker, curator:
YOU make your product unique
You are NOT an imposter
No one else can do or will ever do it like you.
Do you ever wonder, “When will business get easy?” I spent my first three years in business struggling with this before things clicked into easy. Then…
It got hard again, and way harder than before.
Thankfully, a few years ago it dawned on me what was happening—and that realization changed everything.
Here’s what I learned, and it stems from another yoga-ism from @doyogawithaustin at @willamettevalleypoweryoga. (I love his class and that studio!)
“Yoga never gets easier. Sure, if you’ve never been to a class before, after you go a bunch of times and get the hang of the poses and what the flow of class is, it does feel easier.
“After that, it never gets easier.
“That’s because once you get the basics down, you start to see the full potential of what’s possible for you.”
I’d take it a step further to say that the more you practice, the more you see that full potential and how much further you could go if you choose.
This is true in yoga, in business, in relationships, in health, in… just about everything.
So the moment you find yourself wondering when business will get easier, STOP.
With that mental struggle, you’re adding more struggle to the struggle—and that’s just silly.
Instead, focus on the hard thing in front of you.
Do that thing, get better at it, and then focus on the next hard thing. (You can’t do all the hard things at once. Just a few at a time until they’re easy. Then pick up new hard things.)
As you do this, flip your mental script from endless struggle to realizing that you have a gift to see your own potential.
THIS IS HUGE.
You get to CHOOSE to see your potential (instead of wallow in the struggle).
And come on, which would you rather choose?
This all means that I hope business never gets easy for you. I hope you always see what else is possible for you and what you’re able to create and achieve.
After all, you’re on a mission to change the world, and we need you to take things as far as your eyes can see.
There’s a deep, quiet space within you that holds the keys to all of your questions.
There’s a deep, quiet space within you that naturally vibrates your essence out into the world.
There’s a deep, quiet space that is your true home.
What stands between you and this deep, quiet space within are the layers of beliefs that you’ve inherited from society, family, past lives and ancestors.
Those layers are templates within your body that get triggered all throughout your day, and depending what template gets triggered automatically, that’s the energy from which you REACT from. It happens 95% of the time, day in and day out, cause 95% of who you are being comes from your unconscious.
This is human. It’s not wrong. It simply is. Allow yourself to release the judgement that so often gets triggered when we notice a limiting story.
The invitation each one of these layers has for you is drawing you into a deeper relationship with the path of your soul.
When you draw these energetic layers out, you invite them to dance with you, and through the dance, this layers unlocks the portal into your next level of becoming, which magnetizes you closer and closer towards your soul essence.
This is “the work” in life. And it’s “the work” in your business and leadership.
The more fully expressed that you are in your essence, the more you attract what you desire and what’s truly meant for you in your life and business.
It’s about energetic resonance. It’s about embodying your truth and standing in your power. That’s when you can truly communicate your message, show up powerfully with your clients, and create what you desire for your life that isn’t based on anyone’s blueprint but your own. It’s an invitation into deeper freedom within, so that you can expand out.
This is the journey you experience through my 1-1 mentorship program. It’s a blend of quantum physics, somatics, psychology, breath work, and movement. It shifts deeper unconscious patterns that have been blocking you from showing up in your power and truth.

When you start glowing from the inside, you level up on the outside🌟💪🏼 Keep reading...
Never underestimate your inner work. Situations and people will test you. But during that process you will rediscover yourself and your life. Chaos is beautiful and so is facing your emotions. If you don’t want to spoil your reality, shed away what isn’t meant for you on the inside (outside too) and balance it. Surrender your ego, feel your feels, and create breakthrough - the life you imagine!
Now off to go dancing (aka Happy Hour) with one of my soul sisters, @thegirlandthegrands 👯♀️ Grateful to be surrounded by so many special souls these days 🙏🏼 Cheers to the weekend social family 🥂😘
