my greatest power = being my true self

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

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 🌮 ’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. 😂

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. 😬

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. 🙈

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

all is well (part II)

Appreciation is the highest vibration 💕

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. ✨

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. 💗

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. 💖 Read More

all is well (part I)

Even with the recent turn of world events, I’d still like to think that all is well. ⚡

I’m not a fan of regurgitating stories unless I can tell them in a way that’s beneficial. My coming to terms with the initial shock of the global pandemic became a brilliant jumping-off point for my glorious expansion.

My fabulous backstory

Three weekends ago, I text one of my mentors at the incubator because I knew he lived alone in Chicago and wanted to see how he was doing. (This was after working remotely for four days straight and hearing about the madness that was already happening in the city on the news.) He told me he just saw two guys getting into a fight over the last ribeye at Trader Joe’s just now. I swear, you don’t make this stuff up! 😮😟

Later that Saturday night, I walked into my local Target store and saw huge merchandise gaps everywhere. Empty meat, dairy, and milk sections. I’ve never seen anything like it. My first thought was: PANDEMONIUM. HAS. STRUCK. THE. SUBURBS. 😱 Read More

the coast is clear

Oh haiiiii, me again. 😊

I felt compelled to write this post because like this man sitting on the rock here, I’m ready to set sail on my new adventure. 🌊

This brings me to a time where I interviewed Grandma Peggy for an assignment in undergrad. I had to interview someone who’s two generations older than me and write it up. Of course, I knew *exactly* what I wanted to hear Grandma talk about: her escape from the Viet Cong regime in the late 70s. Read more

leaping in faith

See what I did there? 😋

I figured today is as great a day as any to put out an update. I promise, it’ll be more than once every 4 years. Creating is in my lifeblood and it’s my dream to inspire through the clarity of my example.

I’ve experienced a lot of *clarifying-trast* (or clarifying crap, lol) over the past 4+ months and I’m relieved that I’ve started to let the Wellness Stream flow back into my experience. I can’t be too loud about things *just yet* but I do want to talk about the lessons that I’ve learned along the way that will help me *take the leap* WHEN the time comes. Here we go: Read More

tuning to the *manifest* station

Today, we’re gonna talk about manifesting.

I can feel so many things that are ready to *pop* in my experience these days. This includes everything that matters to me including the perfect rendezvous, personal accomplishments, material objects, and all things in between. I keep on telling myself:

So much has been orchestrated on my behalf that I don’t have to shoot myself in the foot by humaning. I need to get out of the way and let the Universe work its magic. It’s done. It’s DONE. IT’S DONE. ⚡

I know I have a concierge, an angel SWAT team, and my very own cheering section in the sky watching over me, gently guiding me, and illuminating my path every step of the way.

a perfect rendezvous

Happy happy 1st birthday to my blog bebe!🎂

This year’s birthday post was inspired by my girl Gen, aka my spiritual running buddy all the way from Saskatchewan. Haha, *spiritual running buddy* because there’s no *actual* running actually involved. 😝 We share a love of deadlifting heavy and being nice to ourselves. Throughout the years, we’ve corresponded via Instagram DM. Although I’ve never met her in person, I feel like I’ve known her forever because her posts resonate so much with me. Ironically enough, she was also my very first subscriber when I launched this blog on 11/11 last year.

Few months ago, I started listening intently to the teachings of Abraham Hicks and my path has been joyously unfolding ever since. Read More
