I started this thing at the beginning of the month, and didn’t tell anyone... not even MY coach 🙈 (yup, I have a coach too. It would be weird if I, as a coach, didn’t keep doing my own work too, right??)
Anyway...this thing. I started a 30 day cold shower challenge for myself. And why didn’t I tell anyone? Because it sucked! If I told people, I’d have to do it for the rest of the month. Ugh!! I (subconsciously) was giving myself an out. Even knowing the benefits of the practice, and creating the challenge myself, I set myself up with a “get out of jail free card”. 🤷♀️
I realized it when today I reeeeeally didn’t wanna do it. The thought flashed across my mind that “hey, no one would ever know”. Which meant I had to out myself STAT if I was going to fulfill this action that is oooooh so uncomfortable.
So here it is. Cold showers for 30 days ending on the 30th of September. Bloody ‘ell. 🥶
Full moon magic.

What if the light at the end of the tunnel was you? What if there was nothing about you to fix; nothing to make better; nothing to improve? What if all the searching and longing was your soul inviting you back to...you?
What if everything you are walking toward is actually unlearning all within you that ever dared to believe you aren’t brilliant/powerful/beautiful enough? That the work is falling back into remembering the divinity that is you, as you.
What if the light at the end of the tunnel was you? Would that finally be enough to put down the fight?
We may not be able to dance in person yet, but some delicious virtual Chilled GROOVE went down on a Saturday morning to soothe the soul. ❤️🖤❤️
Over on my #YouTube channel, I am sharing tips and tricks for how to thrive in your life and business while living in a climate of physical distancing. We are in this together - Go #QuaranTeam

The next in the series to go live...a chat all about asking for, and being willing to receive, support.
Pandemic circumstances, mindset, and being a human.

Big love all around!
“With every act of self-care your authentic self gets stronger, and the critical, fearful mind gets weaker. Every act of self-care is a powerful declaration: I am on my side. I am on my side. Each day I am more and more on my own side.” ~ Susan Weiss Berry
There are lots of very good reasons why self-care is "hard", why we "wouldn't/can't" or why we simply "don't wanna" take it on right now. Really reasonable reasons. Reasons no reasonable person would ever question - luckily I've never been accused of being reasonable ;)
The sneaky thing about those reasons not to, is that they are likely the very same reasons you would give me if I asked you why you WOULD take on self-care right now.
We are currently being called to build the resilience of our hearts, our creativity and our courage. It is totally ok and normal when challenged and triggered to want to check out or to trip over. Which is why we often need even more structure and support to keep sourcing ourselves in nourishing and loving ways when challenging circumstances (enter global pandemic, or heartbreak for a multitude of other reasons, here) arise. So... I created a mini Source Yo'Self Challenge to support!
You can choose your own daily actions, or play along with mine. Both versions are available below to download. If you are creating your own, here are some questions to consider as you choose which daily actions to commit to:
Share your progress with me either here, or on instagram or facebook (don't forget to tag me so I see it). Invite friends to join you - more accountability makes it sooo much easier! Share a picture with me on the last day - April 22 - with your sheet filled out, and I will draw a name from those pictures to be the winner of the challenge. The winner will receive a surprise gift from me in the mail!
We start on the full moon - Tuesday, April 7...
You ready to Source Yo'Self?
We are living through a time when uncertainty cannot be denied in our daily life - it's showing up in our relationships, businesses, finances, daily scheduling and parenting. As we physically distance, how we navigated our worlds previously don't work in this climate. We are being called to pivot our ways of being and how we show up like never before. And we are in this together!
I cordially invite you to join my QuaranTeam - where I will be sharing a series of videos throughout the physical distancing filled ideas and tips for thriving through this pandemic. Up first? Homeschooling.
A short guided meditation to support you in sinking into your body, and into your heart space.
Sending oodles of peace and love, from my heart to yours.
