the best life advice from a 39ยฝ year old

Today marks 39ยฝ revolutions around the ๐ŸŒž for me.

I really can’t think of a better way to commemorate this momentous occasion other than to share the best life advice that will keep me winning well into my 40s. ๐ŸŒป

Without further ado, I present to you the following nuggets of wisdom:

There is nothing more important than feeling good

Truth be told, I took today off yesterday. ๐Ÿ™ˆ It was because I found myself slowing down as I was completing my free association exercise on the 4th. I probably needed a day (or dayS) off sooner but just kept putting it off. My free association was mainly about the things that I wanted to accomplish and buy in January 2023.

You’d think that today would be the day that I get cracking on these things but not really. Instead, I did what was best for me.ย I bought myself a ticket to Abraham’s in-person workshop, a mani/pedi, and renewed my domains, I’m also leisurely updating my blog because it feels good.

Do I care if anyone’s gonna read it?

Not really.

Why?

There is no law of assertion in an attraction-based universe

SEO can fuck itself because I know my people will eventually find me.

I attract what I radiate.

I zig while the naysayers zag.

When it feels like you’re about to be blessed, shut up

This explains why I haven’t been caring too much about social media these days. I find that creation is more fun when I’m the one witnessing the Universe orchestrate perfect circumstances and people to lead me to the next and the next.

I’m a creative genius and everything that I’ve manifested since quarantine has been done in stealth mode. I’m done with making announcements because I’m done with the peanut gallery or worst yet, my perceptions of what the peanut gallery thinks. If you’re close to me, maybe I’ll share a thing or two but for the most part, I’m about being comfortable these days.

Perhaps the most radical piece of advice I have for myself these days is about food.

Drumroll, please… Read More

hindsight is 2022

A couple weeks ago, my friend Vernon sent me a text: We really have lost 2 years. 

I guess it’s all a matter of perspective, right? At first glance, that message felt kinda grim. Like… what the hell happened these past two years? Pandemic, lockdowns, civil unrest, a nail-biter election, and moar civil unrest aside,

I am sooo appreciative for all that’s happened *for me*, FULL STOP. ๐Ÿ›‘

Read that again. 

It’s really hard to see the big picture when you’re faced with so much adversity in-the-moment but I’d argue that hindsight is 20/22. (See what I did there? ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰) I’ve sifted and sorted through so much crap these past two years that I’m ready to (in the words of Abraham-Hicks) cash in my vibrational chips. ๐ŸŒˆโœจ

there is no practice life

Read that title again. โœ‹๐Ÿ›‘

It has been a long while since I’ve updated and I think it’s fear of not being perfect enough. Here’s the funny thing โ€”

The moment I don’t give a rip about SEO and doing what I’m supposed to do marketing-wise, I get the most engagement. Lighthouse lifestyle is a prime example. Damn right, it’s not my job to save anyone. Read that post if you want to know why. 

Today, I’m getting on my soap-box to talk about how the time is now.

2020 has caused me to put lot into vibrational escrow. Don’t want this, must want that. I hate this, I must love that. This person is shitty, I put an equally amazing opposing version of them inside the vortex. โšก

I’ve done a much better job at showing up authentically in many areas of my life this year. As 2021 draws to a close, it’s time to lean even moar in the direction of what I do want because after all, there is no practice life.

If I can have it any way I want…

lighthouse lifestyle

I called it months ago.ย 

2021 continues to be the Year of the Level Up.ย 

I realize it’s been months since my last post but I promise you, it has been time well-spent. I’ve been letting go of the struggle and doing what feels fun, purposeful, and elevating.ย 

As a result, I feel like I’ve finally opened myself up to receiving from the Universe. โœจ A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon a really awesome Instagram post about lighthouses. Here we go:

โ€œLighthouses donโ€™t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.โ€ โ€“ Anne Lamott

level up because you can (part I)

2021, aka Year of the Level Up.

I can’t believe we’re almost through Q1. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™ˆ

It’s been a really hot minute since I’ve updated. I’ve been busy living life because words don’t teach, life experience does. While it may feel overwhelming in-the-moment, I now see the events of the past few months as the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

It’s always a data-gathering experience โ€“

I don’t like this, I like this. I don’t like this, I like this…

And on and on it goes…

These are the aces I hold in my back pocket for 2021. ๐Ÿ““

my biggest life lessons from 2020

Words Don’t Teach, Life Does

2020 has been a treasure trove of life lessons and most of it has left me feeling kinda lost and emotionally raw.

I’m not a fan of regurgitating the past unless it helps me move forward. If I could pick out the ๐ŸŒˆ and silver lining after the storm, I’m all for it.

Now that I’ve somewhat lived past *it*, I can talk about the life lessons I’ve learned thus far.

my greatest power = being my true self

The pandemic has helped me rediscover that being my true self = my greatest power. โšก

Besides the obvious because-it-feels-better, it’s also because things *work out even better than I could ever imagine* when I’m being myself.

Let’s ๐ŸŒฎ ’bout it. :):) Read More

letting freedom ring & setting myself free

July 4th is a day I celebrate freedom and here’s my favorite Independence Day one-liner. ๐Ÿ˜‚

I see Celsius and raise you degrees of #FREEDOM!

This year, July 4th has a special meaning because I’ve decided to pursue forgiveness. 

This all started because my coach called me out for not having done “the homework” as I talked about about my wins this week on our call this morning. I shared my wins with the coaching group but I was angry. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

It’s true.

I haven’t done “the work” because I just can’t be motivated to work on the computer when I’m chained to it for 40 hours a week. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I realize what a cop out excuse this is as I’m typing this out now but I have my reasons for not wanting to do “the work”. 

I think it’s because addressing this stuff hurts. Read More

now what?

Doing the Unthinkableย 

Well, I did it โ€“

The perfect storm presented itself to me and I took my calculated leap of faith. That’s right, I walked away from my known hell to seek unknown heavens and I am proud of this. #micdrop ๐ŸŽค

I spent the first 24 hours re-living it with Darryl and the ones closest to me. At first, I was really angry and resentful but my coach gave me a way to frame all of this. She told me,

Everyone played a perfect role for you to get to this point. Forgive them. They helped you discover what your true gifts are and the faster you feel better, the faster the the crowd you’re meant to serve appears. โšก

She’s absolutely right.ย 

Getting Clear

My vision gets a little clearer each day. I have about 80% of my grand vision hammered out and I think that’s plenty. As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. says,ย ย 

Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. โœจ

I made room for even bigger blessings in my life and now, it’s time for me to go swim. ๐ŸŒˆ

The featured image in this post sang to me. She made the leap, now she must rely on her skills to navigate this vast open sea full of adventure and treasure.

Ok, so now what?

all is well (part II)

Appreciation is the highest vibration ๐Ÿ’•

I’d like to start the second installment of my *all is well* series off by expressing my sincere and heartfelt appreciation to all those who have made my quarantine life easier these past few weeks.

I’d like to start with the healthcare workers, nurses, doctors, hospital personnel, police officers, and everyone who is on the front lines playing a critical role in controlling the pandemic. Thank you for working hard to keep all of us safe. โœจ

I’d also like to thank all the amazing people I had the opportunity to rendezvous with these past few weeks outside. Special shout out to the staff at my local Target for manning the shopping carts with an associate who sanitizes shopping carts for all customers who walk inside. Last Saturday, I went out for my weekly grocery run there and my experience was nothing short of memorable in the best way possible. I was greeted several times by several people in different sections of the store right down to the cashier who remembered me from several visits ago. She asked me, “Are you the one who bought an air fryer a while back?” I was so surprised she remembered me I told her: Yes, that’s me! How are you doing? I don’t remember the rest of the conversation but I do remember walking out of the store feeling like there’s a shred of light that’s glimmering through all of this. Thank you for doing your part to make me feel safe and welcomed while I’m gathering my supplies for the week. ๐Ÿ’—

Last but not least, I’d like to thank the Amazon drivers who dropped off all my items with care. I actually got a text from a driver named Michael asking me where it’s safe to drop off my package. But that’s not all, all of my supplements, protein bars, and weights have arrived in perfect condition. Thank you for dropping all of my items with care. 

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything all of you do to allow me to stay at home. ๐Ÿ’– Read More
