The Power to Choose a Life You Love // Special Guest Jessica Yarbrough (Episode 71)

Join me this week as I dive into all things joyful with Jessica Yarbrough!

For Jessica, joyful living is being able to make the choices that are best for her and her family.

There is such freedom in the power of CHOICE. We are faced with decisions and opportunities all the time. Do we choose to invest in ourselves? Do we choose to take those leaps of faith and really recognize and live according to our true worth?

 

 

As women, we often put our own needs on the back burner. We can find ourselves held back by the limiting belief that we must wait until our children are grown or until the needs of others are met before working towards our own dreams. Sound familiar?

In reality, you can be an AMAZING mother, spouse, partner, or friend AND totally crush it with your business or career! It’s not only possible to do both, it’s a choice that each and every one of us can make!

Jessica reminds us that, “You are the only person standing in your way.”

 

 

So, what gifts, talents, skills, and ideas are you holding back?

CHOOSE  to RISE UP, own your gifts, and create the life of your dreams! And, when you step into your power, you’ll not only create a life you love, but you’ll inspire others to do the same.

The Stories We Tell (Episode 70)

Is someone driving you nuts? Are you feeling like maybe you won’t ever be able to have what you really want? Are you playing small in your life or business?

At the root of any of these feelings is a STORY that is either holding you captive or liberating you. 

In today’s episode of Joyful Living we dive deep into the difference between stories vs. facts (and how our we + our egos get sneaky and try to convince ourselves that our stories are facts/truth). 

Facts are something that can scientifically be proven to be true, largely because that something ALWAYS or NEVER is a certain way. Example: the earth is ALWAYS round and NEVER flat = fact.

Opinions are simply based on our perspectives and preferences. Opinions are similar to stories in that they cannot necessarily be proven to be true or false. Example: the earth is a beautiful and safe place = opinion.

The biggest crazy-train we jump on in life is believing that our stories are facts, when they are actually simply opinions. The big spoiler for how to tell the difference between a fact and an opinion/story is if it holds up to the “always” or “never” test.

You’ll learn how to tell the difference by taking your story through the “always/never” and “everybody/nobody” tests to see if you’ve got a fact on your hands or one wild, convincing story. 

Why does this matter so much?

Because pretty much everything we do as humans is rooted in a story. The more you hold things up to the “always/never” test, the more you realize that there are far fewer facts in life than we often believe. 

Stories are based in our opinions and perceptions. By changing our stories, we change our lives. 

 

Deceptively simple + elegantly powerful.

Cheering you on in setting yourself free by becoming aware of the stories that are keeping you stuck and then choosing more empowering, supportive and joyful stories!

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.

One of my favorite points that Joanna leans into is recognizing that we were born for something bigger than we can comprehend. It’s BIGGER than us. If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll never start. She encourages us to “find joy in the struggle” and learn to love ourselves so we can get over ourselves and love the people we’re here to serve.

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!
