Somedays it’s hard.

Some days I do not know which way to go. I have so many obstacles thrown at me and I just want to wave the white flag. Surrender. YES there it is…surrender. I know better. I have coached so many but it does not mean I do not get caught up in my own stuff sometimes. I know that everything turns out exactly how it’s supposed to so why worry? Why? Because we are human.  SO for tonight, I will breathe and suggest you all do the same. It all turns out. To swim upstream is so much effort so for today I am letting go. I live to fight another day. I wish you all the same.

Gratitude: The Key to a Positive Mindset

Your Curvy Coach and MINDSET of Gratitude

Gratitude Changes everything by YCC

As a mindset and nutrition coach, I have the privilege of working with individuals who are on a journey to becoming their best selves, both physically and mentally. One of the most important lessons I have learned in my work is the power of gratitude.

Gratitude is the practice of being thankful for what you have, rather than focusing on what you lack. It is a simple yet powerful mindset shift that can have a profound impact on your overall well-being.

When you focus on gratitude, you begin to see the positive aspects of your life, rather than dwelling on the negative. This shift in perspective can help to reduce stress and anxiety, while also increasing feelings of happiness and contentment.

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.”

– Melody Beattie

One of the best ways to practice gratitude is to keep a gratitude journal. Each day, take a few minutes to write down three things that you are grateful for. It can be something as simple as having a roof over your head or having a warm bed to sleep in. By focusing on the small things in your life that you are thankful for, you will begin to see the bigger picture of all the blessings that you have.

Another way to practice gratitude is to take time each day to give thanks. Whether it is through prayer, meditation, or simply taking a moment to reflect on all that you are grateful for, giving thanks can help to put things into perspective and remind you of all the good in your life.

In addition to the mental benefits, gratitude can also have a positive impact on your physical health. Research has shown that those who practice gratitude have a stronger immune system, lower blood pressure, and a decreased risk of heart disease.

So, if you want to improve your overall well-being and live a happier, more fulfilling life, try incorporating gratitude into your daily routine. Trust me, it will be a game changer in your journey to becoming your best self.

I am grateful for the opportunity to help you on your journey to becoming the best version of yourself. Remember to always be thankful for the things in your life and to never take them for granted.

With love,

The Power of Flowers

They are everywhere

About 6 years ago I embarked on a journey of flower picture taking while I walked my Beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Jake, each morning. It started harmlessly when a bright flower caught my eye and I snapped a photo of it.  As each morning passed I saw more flowers than I ever thought possible.  I posted them on Facebook and I would run into people and they would say, “I love the flowers you post every day!” I quickly realized that I was on to something special. My pics did not have to have even one like but I knew thousands were seeing them. I quickly coined the hashtag #mymorningwalkwithJake. 

I continue today with my newest Jack Russell, DaisyMae, and my hashtag is now #mymorningwalkwithDaisyMae.

What I did not realize at the time was I was practicing the art of being present. Something I worked diligently at inside the Bikram Yoga room. FINALLY, the results were appearing on my morning walks.  People were skeptical that there could be THIS many flowers in one neighborhood. Well, I would say, “Open your eyes and be present in the moment and you will see them EVERYWHERE!”  

This morning meditation is now my gift to the world. Every day SOMEONE mentions the flowers to me either in person or through Facebook.  Even when I go on a vacation, I make it my mission to find a flower or a unique bush wherever I am at. Who would have thought one picture of one flower could stand for so much in my world. I challenge all of you to take a walk outside with your furry child or your kid today and check out what is truly present all around you. I know you will be as surprised as I. #powerofpresence
