Better than caffeine… Bare feet and bare soil Time outside in the sun Reconnecting with the earth is good for the soul
🌍Our planet holds an incredible amount of energy. Spending time barefoot on the earth is a grounding technique I use to settle anxious energy or elevate a depressed mood.
✨ There are many possible health benefits of reconnecting with nature, including but not limited to….
-reduced stress and anxiety -relief from chronic pain -improved sleep -better regulated nervous and endocrine systems -enhanced mental focus -strengthened immune system -heightened creativity -lighter and/or elevated mood –relaxation and calm -more balanced energy levels
☀️ I love to go outside everyday for at least 20-30 minutes. After I go for a jog or a bike ride, I take off my shoes and socks. I choose to walk barefoot as I water the plants in my garden.
I spend time in awareness of the beauty around me, using all my senses to breathe it in. I am able to set aside my worries and focus on my connection to the earth and to God.
🥰 I use this outside time to let go of the stories in my head, to connect to the present moment, and focus on gratitude for the beauty around me. I thank God for the the gift it is to live on this beautiful earth.
So what if they don’t care what you think?! Let your voice be heard anyway, and remain unattached to the outcome. Nothing may happen now, but you never know the ripple effect you may have. What is the cost of not saying anything?
There is power in letting your thoughts and feelings be heard…no matter how they are received!
Wherever you are, whatever you are struggling with….what if you stand up for yourself, and let your voice be heard, no matter the outcome?!
Be an advocate! Be a leader! Be a voice of reason!! Use your God-given powerful voice and speak your truth!!
If you feel as if you don’t have a voice or a choice, I want to remind you that you do!! I encourage you to use your voice and speak up. Your breath is not wasted, no matter the outcome.
FREEDOM is the promise you claim when you choose to speak the truth in love. I believe in you. I am here to hold space for you if you need someone to listen and encourage you.
I am here to help you find your authentic voice and the courage to speak your truth.
To all you who are struggling to speak up, I see you. I am here for you. I believe in you. I am living proof that change is possible.
Remember, you are loved! You are worth it! You are enough — period!!!
Real power comes when you choose to live in the truth of who you are, when you choose to be nothing other than your authentic self.
You are a beautiful soul! Please don’t ever give up on yourself!!
If you are afraid to speak up at work, at home, at school, or wherever you are suffering….I am here for you. You are not alone.

The most important thing I’ve learned about transformation is that we get there the quickest by slowing down, by speaking our truth in love, and by becoming who we truly are at the deepest level.
When you slow down, you can hear yourself think. You can sort the clutter of all the voices in your head until you can encounter your own.
You must let all the other voices go, and only then can you have a clear conversation with God. Only then can you discover who you really are!
For the first time, you meet your most authentic self without all the noise of the world telling you who you are and who you are to become.
You then have a choice…to share or not to share your most authentic self with the world. To be brave enough to truly be yourself, to JUST BE YOU, to speak your truth in love.
Your authentic voice matters! When you do not speak your truth, you abandon a part of yourself. It becomes harder to love all of yourself!!!
One of the most important things I’ve learned about being able to love myself is that authenticity matters! I matter!! My story matters. My authentic voice matters!!!
When you speak the truth in love, you step into being more fully alive, more fully you, more fully connected to God, grace, understanding and knowing. Knowing that this is the one life we have to live on this earth, HERE AND NOW.
When you hold back, when you shift your words to what others want to hear, a part of you dies inside, a part of your awareness fades away.
You step into living only half alive. And piece by piece, you continue to fade away, and the real you slowly dies.
If I could tell the world just one thing, it would be this…YOU MATTER, YOUR VOICE MATTERS, YOUR AUTHENTIC VOICE MATTERS, YOU ARE ENOUGH!!!
I’ve been doing healing work and trusting the process of transformation for quite a few years now.
I have many regrets of who I was and how I behaved in the past, but I am not my past. The slate is wiped clean.
When we transform, we step into grace and beauty, into knowing and understanding that no one is worthy, no one is perfect.
We all make mistakes. We all lose hope.
It’s okay to let others know you struggle. It’s okay to be vulnerable. It’s okay to give yourself permission to be you. I want to hear what YOU think, what YOU believe, what YOU feel, not how the world tells you to be.
I am here cheering you on. If you feel you have to hide a part of you, if you feel you can’t love yourself, or can’t let the world see ALL OF YOU, I am here cheering you on to just be you, to SPEAK YOUR TRUTH IN LOVE.
I know you can step into being you, loving you, accepting you.
I struggle with anxiety, depression, and complex PTSD. Thoughts of hating myself return from time to time, but I no longer live in the world of self-hate and abandoning myself, abandoning my voice.
I know that what I have to say is important. I know that I matter, that my authentic voice matters.
And I choose to speak the truth in love. I choose to live more fully alive each and every new day.
Today, I live in the world of hope and never giving up, the world of climbing every mountain, the world of giving myself permission to rest when I am weary and tired.
Today , I choose to step out of darkness into the light.
