Here are my Confessions of a Worn Out Mommy. I woke up on Mother’s Day with every intention of having a lovely day. With David deployed I knew it wouldn’t be your Hallmark Movie Version of Mother’s Day with breakfast in bed and a day at the spa. However – I was ready for that! I planned ahead and picked up a meal that I would only have to warm up. What I didn’t plan on was washing a package of seaweed in a HUGE load of laundry. True story. Imagine little flecks of wet seaweed everywhere – I was basically a mermaid – which I found funny – at first. My humor quickly slipped away as other unplanned and unexpected things continued to roll in along with the constant fighting that has been happening between my children and I felt myself slipping down into the depths. While I was in the pit I remembered that a pretty huge trauma happened to me on Mother’s Day several years ago (which can happen when your vibration is low – your...
I'd love to share the stories behind the choices of my images and words behind my brand. I have chosen to run my business from a heart centered space. The following will walk you through the process I went in choosing my brand emphasis. My hope is that by sharing my story you will gain clarity around a possible way to build yours.
If you have been in my community for any amount of time you will know how much I LOOOVE Lighthouses, Hearts, and the words: Shine, Light, and of course Wholehearted.
Wholehearted – As you can see…I have it tattooed on my body. LOL. This word and way of living caused such a shift in my soul. I was introduced to Brene Brown by my friend Lindsay Teague Moreno who is an avid reader. This word is at the center of every one of her writings and it literally made my heart grow two sizes. Here is the definition of Wholehearted Living directly from Brene Brown: “Wholehearted living is about engaging in our lives from a place of...
David was able to come home for about 36 hours before he heads back to his training on the east coast. Before he came home we had a conversation about NOT having any expectations for this quick visit and we instead created an intention for this quick but special time (thank you to my friend Heather Wood for introducing me to this many moons ago).
First – let’s dive into the definition of these words:
Intention: a persons design or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.
Expectation: a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future.
Do you see and feel the difference in the weight of these words? Intention carries a lightness while expectation has this seriousness and heaviness. You will notice they both require you to CHOOSE how you will filter your thoughts. Mindset is at the core of both of these definitions.
One more insight before I share how we created ours. Expectation is basically a list of...
Friends! I run a kick ass Network Marketing Business. HA! I said it! I have been downplaying that for close to 5 years. I never wanted to be pushy or tacky or lose my people over it so I played small and sometimes even hid it. I woke up a couple of months ago and realized…I have NOTHING to be ashamed of.
*These oils and products have empowered me to make lasting change in my life and my family’s life. I can literally address 99.9% of the concerns in my house: be they mental, emotional, or physical.
*I am empowering others to do the same! Just this month (September 2018) My team has helped 232 people take ownership of their wellness and the month isn’t even over (As a whole we are at 3,949 members)!
*The financial blessings that Young Living has provided is nothing to be ashamed of either! Which leads me to a HUGE announcement I’d like to make…WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!! (It is absolutely beautiful! It has fireplaces and a HUGE tub and the office has the...

It is basically one of my favorite questions to ask my friends and one of my favorite things to ponder as each year comes to an end. My first word was Deliberate, then I moved onto Wholehearted, and last year was Shine. Each year I love to sit with my eyes full of wonder as I watch to see how God weaves this word and its meanings into my life. This is basically how I choose my word in the first place…I look at the meaning and I consider if it will weave through each area of my life, emotionally, spiritually, physically, energetically, professionally. I begin to dream what things will manifest with this word becoming a consideration with the decisions I make day in and day out.
