Here’s this week’s mantra:

A lovely reminder from a woman I consider my mentor, Terri Cole.

A lovely reminder from one of the women I continue to learn from, Terri Cole.

I noticed that I’m a lot harder on myself when I don’t take time to prioritize, well, me. I also noticed that I become a lot harder on other people, too. So for the last week of October, self-care is going to be a huge priority for me. Even if it means waking myself up earlier to meditate, forcing myself to work out, and making sure that I’m in bed by 10 p.m. Super corny stuff, but I know it’s going to help me (and those around me) feel a lot more sparkly ASAP.

What about you? What are some of the things you can do to take better care of yourself? ♥

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could just get rid of the unnecessary fears in your life and be free? I didn’t realize that I had been living in fear. A lot.

Ahh...my ultimate goal in life!

There was a time when the voices in my head (fearfully) dictated what I should do. Thoughts like, “I should do this…” or “I shouldn’t do this because…” Oh boy, I had all these beliefs that I was always obliged to do something or else I would be a “bad” person.

The wonderful Terri Cole, who was my mentor over the past year, really helped me overcome a lot of my fear.

The wonderful Terri Cole, who was my mentor and coach over the past year. She really helped me overcome many of my real and imagined fears! One of the tools we used: meditation. I highly recommend you join her free webinar on December 1. Just sign-up here.

Once I learned to allow my own voice to (lovingly) dominate my thoughts and nurture my actions, my own inner and outer beauty started to shine through even more. And while certain things can still freak me out, I’ve learned not to let the feeling overwhelm me and just mindfully navigate my way through whatever the issue is. I’m proud to say that I’m not a big ’fraidy cat anymore…and can now enjoy more fun things like this:

What are you doing to become more fearless? It can be as little as wearing red lipstick or donning a cat eye (although that’s not little in my book!). Share your tips and adventures with me—I’d love to hear them! ♥
