It’s 2:19pm. My house is dark. It’s pouring rain outside. The children are napping. John’s at work. I’m on my second coffee, in gym clothes, in bed, on my laptop. There is something peaceful and serene about today and I’m grateful for it.
Today is the first day of August 2019 and I have this knowing in my belly that it’s going to be a pivotal year for my family. Kaya starting kindergarten, Rohan starting 2nd grade, John making his side hustle official and grow, me returning to my biz after a long hiatus… It feels good.
August feels fresh. Which is odd, because September is usually my fresh personal new year (bday sept 10 – hay virgos!) and August usually feels like a throwaway month for me. Maybe it’s last nights super black new moon that is bringing the fresh new new energy my way.
This year I feel like I’ve had a huge shift in perspective and a lot of personal growth. It took a deep depression, mental gymnastics and flip flopping to get there but we made it through. And here we are at a beautiful August.
August is bringing:
The Be Whole Be Free Wellness Summit
I’m speaking on getting started with crystals. CLICK HERE to join us. It’s totally free but I’d suggest you upgrade to keep the sessions because it’s 40 speakers killing it on all kinds of wellness, business, parenting and spirituality topics.
A Slight Business Pivot
I was over this. Blogging. The world of “influencers” (that are all carbon copies of each other yet screaming “be authentic!” #noshade) and I didn’t know what to do about those feelings. I decided to step away and see if I missed it. I did…but only the sharing/creative aspect.
I didn’t miss the SEO, the pinning, the algorithm-chasing, the caring about numbers, etc. So…I’m just saying fuck it to all that. I’m just going to share here about whole family wellness, creating/manifesting a life you love, giving tips and sharing my personal journey and let it do what it do. Be what it be.
Momshell body gains
Getting my body how I want it to look, feel and perform is getting pushed up higher on my priority list. The new machine we have is definitely helping in that regard. I’m just ready to put effort in again…and keep it up. I am not supposed to feel this way about my body. Plus I have to start training for my next half marathon, so I need to get my head and mombod in gear.
I’m going to Electric Zoo in NYC at the end of the month. John and I met when I was 19 and a club junkie. Hip hop, house, raves, I didn’t care. Now we are going to be the old heads at the club. I don’t even care. We have amazing passes and will be dancing alongside those young whippersnappers til we throw our backs out to DJs we’ve never heard of. I can’t wait!
Reiki Level II
So excited to continue my reiki practitioner journey. Last month I finished Level I and have been practicing all July on myself and my family. Later in August I’ll be getting my Level II certification and branching out to offer my services to others. *gulp!*
While I feel like I’m shameless in many aspects, I’m not with my business. I was talking about my mini masterclass Attractionista with an e-friend who was shocked that I had a course for sale. ….I should probably start advertising it more. With the new time I’ll have on my hands with both kids in school, I aim to start pushing forward with my readings/coaching/courses and letting the whole wide world know about it all.
August is my new year for 2019. So, happy new year you all. I hope August is sweet to you too!
