Everyday Joy When Life Gets Messy (Episode 68)

In any given moment, it can feel like things are falling apart, coming together, and changing. And, while life looks a little messy and I feel myself continue to adapt and adjust to the present flow in my world, I feel compelled to pause and come share with you some of the things I have learned and principles that I believe help us rise to the occasion of whatever our individual path looks like.

An interesting thing happens in the creation process of heart and soul projects… we start to believe that when we FINALLY reach that finish line, everything will be okay. And yet, it’s when we attach to an outcome or result, that’s when our present moment becomes uncomfortable and insufficient.

The beautiful reality is that it’s totally okay that things are coming together AND falling apart at any given time! Honor that those feelings can – and usually do – exist at the same time MOST of the time in life, and you will feel free from the pressure of finish lines and expectations.

In order to really live joyfully in the present moment, recognize that when you are creating big, heartfelt, soulful things, the process is both MIRACULOUS AND MESSY!

As we allow ourselves to LOVE WHAT IS throughout every season, we are able to let go of the attachment to things falling apart or coming together and what that finish line might be, things really do work out in the right timing and flow.

Authenticity and Living By Design // Special Guest Kamila Gornia (Episode 67)

Do you live with an intention to CREATE a life you love? Or you do, like so many of us, feel lost in the decisions and responsibilities that you encounter each day?

Our guest today, Kamila Gornia, is a business and marketing coach with a passion for helping entrepreneurs discover their own unique voice and gain the confidence and tools for sharing it with the world.

Kamila breaks down the top 3 things that make up her unique flavor of joyful living – FUN, SELF-EXPRESSION, and FREEDOM – and shares her perspective on how taking off those masks we wear and stepping into our own truth is a vital piece of designing a successful and joyful life.

Whether it’s a social night out or enjoying laughter and great company with close friends, being intentional about how she spends her time and who she spends it with allows for the fun, inspiration, and support that are so needed to live in joy as a woman and business owner.

After years of feeling the need to mask parts of her personality as a teenager coming to America from Poland, then experiencing the pressure be something she wasn’t and to hide parts of who she was in life and business as an adult, Kamila talks about how she experienced some pretty serious wake up calls in her life.

Realizing that she didn’t want to leave the world without living the life she was meant to live, she began the process of busting through the same doubts and struggles so many of us feel and now enjoys feeling confident in being herself.

We dive into the power of feeling free – free to travel, free to do the things you love to do, and free to design each day around what you desire – and we talk about the fears, beliefs, and self-imposed limitations that sometimes hold us back from enjoying the freedom we desire.

Kamila sheds light on the challenges many of her clients experience, one of which is a preoccupation with needing to be liked. She talks about the difference between trying to be someone you’re not and achieving a lukewarm level of popularity or approval versus living fully in your truth, being authentically you and finding your unique tribe of people that will absolutely love you for it.

The truth is, whether it’s in life or in business, people are attracted to authenticity. We like, follow, listen, and buy from people that we feel are genuine. We are also more attracted to people and causes we believe in, rather than inauthentic brands or forged personalities.

Kamila reminds us that it takes COURAGE to be who you are and to share it with the world, and as we believe in ourselves and TRUST that when we show up with authenticity, things will work out, we really can begin to design a life filled with success, support, and joy.

In Flow + On Fire (Episode 66)

Do you feel the call of a dream or idea that you long to bring to life? Are there desires and strengths that you feel you were born to create and share?

Building those desires of the heart and soul and bringing them into realization is a miraculous journey to embark on. My desire is to help others create and bring their heart and soul projects to life while living IN FLOW and ON FIRE.

 

In a society tells us that we need to “hustle,” and that creation in life and in business should be forceful or that we need only to push forward and “make it happen,” I invite you to remember to enjoy the moment, be aware of your humanity, and to know that there is a more peaceful way to build and thrive.

In this episode, we dive into what it really means to create in a divinely feminine way and how sometimes the creation process requires us to recognize the difference between when to hustle and when to surrender. We talk about the ability to overcome fear and to truly create in flow, in peace, and in harmony.

Over the past year, I have stepped into my own soulful calling and have taken my energy work and coaching to a level that I never even thought possible. In doing so, I have seen my own life and business expand and explode into a state of pure flow.

My path has led me to some interesting discoveries and realizations that have stretched me in ways that felt scary and even painful at times. As I have leaned into the journey, I have learned to let go of my need for my own heart and soul project to happen in a certain way at a certain time and to surrender to the Divinity that guides me forward.

I can’t wait to share with you more of my journey and to gather together in support and creativity, to cheer each other on in this journey of allowing a heart and soul project to develop exactly how it’s supposed to – in flow with their health, family, home, finances, and relationships.
If you find yourself in a place of discovery or feel your soul burning with a YES to this idea of birthing your heart and soul project in flow and on fire, I offer you this invitation and reminder: the world needs your gifts, your love, and your beauty. Your heart and soul dreams and projects matter. Your joy matters.

Fabulocity: Joy in Marketing + LIFE // Special Guest: Rebecca Rubin (Episode 55)

It’s easy to devalue all we have to offer the world. It’s even easier to tell ourselves that while our dreams aren’t being realized today, we’ll get there eventually. And then the years just keep rolling by. Life continues moving forward, not stopping for us to have a chance to shift and get ahead. Sometimes to really get into the life work that’s been calling us from our heart and soul, we get to make BIG + COURAGEOUS shifts. And sometimes (most of the time) not everyone in our world will understand or cheer us on.

Nurture Your Creative Spark

What do you do to nurture your creative spark? When your business is rooted in your passions – work you love to do and would do even if no one was paying you – sometimes it can be hard to turn work off and just create for the FUN of it. Even if your work isn’t rooted here yet, nurturing your creative spark can change everything and light your world on fire.

Over the years as I’ve really leaned in to creating a life and business I love, I’ve found that I lose my creative spark when I stop nurturing my creativity. This means doing at least some of my art for the sake of art, rather than only for business.

When we lose touch with our own creative spark, we slip out of our zone of genius. Our work then FEELS like work. It’s something we just do to get money. But when we’re connected to our creative spark, the inner fires light our days and we COME ALIVE. Naturally, our work comes alive as a result, bringing our brilliance + secret sauce back into everything we’re doing.

However, this step can be easy to devalue and look past. We think it’s not crucial in the moment. It’s easier to not take the time to nurture our creative spark. However, leaving those inner fires to tend themselves means they (& we) can easily burn out.

I’ve been leaning in more to tending my inner fire, that divine + creative spark. Lately it’s looked like drawing and painting in my art journal. Whenever I do it, my heart sings. Peace returns. My divine spark glows into a fire.

My work has more depth, heart and life. I have more energy to bring to my family and more patience to enjoy life as it is right now. OUR CREATIVE + DIVINE SPARK MATTERS. Let that light shine!
