May/June, 2018 Issue

The other day my client (let’s call her Gina) started our conversation with some heat.  Gina was super irritated because her sister-in-law, who has a “perfect body,” was still complaining about her appearance.  Gina was fucking sick of the complaining.  "Why is this bothering you?"  I asked.  She didn’t know.  After a few minutes of prodding . . .

From a Place of Worthy, Women Rise

There are badass, heart-centered, sharp as hell women out there who believe that their WORTH is in how much they get DONE. 

Or how they LOOK. 

Or what OTHER PEOPLE think of them. 

It's all bullshit. 

But, let's be honest, is this you

THEN YOU PROBABLY HAVE MOMENTS WHERE YOU FEEL LIKE IT'S NEVER ENOUGH.

Beyond doing: Recognizing who you really are

 

"You are the alertness, the stillness, the Presence that is listening, looking, touching, even speaking. You are the Being behind the doing." --Eckhart Tolle

There is no way to explain, define or use words to describe who you really are, who I really am, or who anyone really is. We can only point to it. 

Because you are an extension of the Infinite, or as Eckhart Tolle describes, "You are the Being behind the doing."

When you recognize the space within you that is Presence, enough-ness is not only indescribable, it's undeniable.

Unstoppable Confidence from knowing yourself 

You can't know yourself from what you do, think, or have. 

Unstoppable confidence comes from knowing who you really are on the level of Being, not doing.

As Pema Chödrön said, "You are the sky. Everything else is just weather."

Take just 3 breaths and imagine yourself as the sky. Focus on seeing thoughts as clouds or weather.

Spend 3 breaths in this space, or do a longer meditation like one from this Living in Love app.

This tea is HOT! The brand even coffee drinkers sip

I used to be a hard-core coffee drinker, but somehow turned into a hard-core tea drinker and I think Smith Tea contributed to the obsession.

This Portland-based tea company produces amazing blends of high-quality tea. If you like green tea, try the Fez blend, a rare green tea with spearmint and a hint of lemon myrtle. Black tea? Try the sweet, spicy, and bold Masala Chai with a little bit of honey and milk of your choice. If iced is your style, the Big Hibiscus is ridiculously good.

Detox Rainbow Rollups with Peanut Sauce 

Crunchy, fresh, filling, and doused in peanut sauce! This recipe from Pinch of Yum is not only delicious, but packed full of colorful veggies. Plus, my kids loved it served up in a bowl with peanut sauce on top, so I call it a winner. 

It's a great option if you're looking for something to pack in a lunch or put together an easy, fresh dinner. Make it even easier by buying matchstick carrots and pre-shredded cabbage. I also served these up like tacos to take out the prep time and make it DIY instead.

Damn I love Ellen's Just Kid Ink 

Laughter is a must-have for me on a daily basis. Sometimes I don't know how I'd make it through the crazy late afternoon/evening time without my dose of Ellen. 

Recently she posted some kid drawings, letters, and homework that had me laughing out loud, so I had to share them with you.  

So, I gotta know, what cracks you up? 

Have something you think is hilarious? PLEASE share it with me!
