Find Beauty in the Chaos

I have felt so much frustration lately.  Maybe it’s the change in weather here in Ontario.  Summer has left and Jack frost is making his way in.  I’m not a fan of the cold.  Why in the world did my Grandparents immigrate to such a cold country?!  I often feel I should be on a beach somewhere, soaking up the sun and heat.  Maybe the frustration I have felt  is from the constant mess in my home that comes with having 4 children, a dog and the home renovations that seem to be taking way too long.

But last night as I stood in my kitchen and watched the ‘chaos‘ that was happening in my home, I felt this overwhelming sense of GrateFULLness.  I am looking at this all wrong, I thought to myself.  I’m complaining about this chaos instead of embracing it.  At that moment I had an “AHA” moment.  You know that moment….that if you don’t stop to really notice it, it will disappear forever.

How to become a morning person

Do you dread the mornings?  Do you stay up late, when the house is quiet and your family is asleep, so you can get some work done and be more productive?  I used to do this too!  I thought I was being more productive if I stayed up late.

WAS I EVER WRONG!!!!

By nature I am a night hawk.  My entire family consists of night hawks.  It became habit to stay up until 1 or 2 am and then wake up around 7am.  I’d wake up groggy, tired, grumpy and have to drag my butt out of bed.

I love my warm cozy bed just as much as the next girl.  The only difference is now, I have slightly adjusted when I hit that pillow and I wake up feeling great!!!

When I started fitness training a couple of years ago, I decided to start waking up early….and I mean early….we are talking 4:00 am early so that I could begin training at 6am.  I thought I was crazy!  My friends thought I was crazy.  You know what, it ended up being one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Heres why.

Failure makes you!

Fall on your Face!  Fail.  Fail Spectacularly.  Because when you fail, you learn.

“You don’t make mistakes, mistakes make you!”  

Mistakes make you stronger.  They make you smarter.  They make you more self-reliant.  This is when you learn who you are and you learn the greatest life lessons.  It is a gift that is given to you.  God does not give you anything that he knows you cannot handle.  He doesn’t ask if it’s ok to put you through these tough times, sometimes life altering moments.  He doesn’t ask….is it ok that I put you through these tough times so that you can have all the things you want when it’s over.  He just does it.  The rest is up to you!

When you push through and ask for help, and do the best you can….that is when so much abundance pours into your life.  That my friends, is when life becomes truly amazing.  We were designed for greatness.  You deserve everything your heart desires.  You deserve everything you want.

It all begins in your mind and ends in your mind.  What you give power to, has power over you, if you allow it.  

My life is not perfect!  It’s far from perfect!  This morning during my training session, I
almost broke.  I held back tears as all these emotions started pouring in.  I wanted to Continue reading “Failure makes you!”

The 2 most powerful words you say!

Have you ever said I am tired?  I am getting old?  I am looking old?

Of course you have.  I think we all have.  Did you know that what you say after those two small words ‘I am’,  are more powerful than you may even realize!

Whatever you say after those 2 teeny tiny words become the truth.

You can consciously change the way you speak and think about the intention behind your words.  If you find yourself saying these things, I am old, I am tired, you can change that.  Immediately say I am beautiful, I am energetic, I am looking good!  Eventually, you will automatically speak and think those positive affirmations without giving it a second thought.

When you say ‘I am’, say it with conviction.  Truly believe what you are saying.  You may struggle to believe the things you are saying are true, or will come true.  Say it like you
truly mean it.

I am not stay-at-home-mom material

The truth is….I just didn’t like it!  I love to work, I NEED to work.  I want to be contributing financially to my family.  I have 4 children under the age of 12.  From 2005-2010 I was a baby making machine!  Yup, we had 4 kids in 5 years and 3 kids in diapers at one point.  I turned 30 the year I gave birth to my youngest child!  My twenties were all about babies!

I struggled to get through my days.  I was afraid to leave the house incase I couldn’t control this little bunch of monkeys I had created.  I was becoming depressed and felt like I had lost myself in formula (I couldn’t breast feed for many reasons, don’t judge), changing diapers, constant cleaning up of food & toys, the never ending laundry & all the other errands I had to do around the house.
