lighthouse in the night

lighthouse lifestyle

I called it months ago. 

2021 continues to be the Year of the Level Up

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

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

“Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.” – Anne Lamott

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

The WBFF is slowly dropping its 2020 schedule and it’s ringing my bells.

I want to walk a bikini competition next year. :):)

I’m aware that my alignment comes from my love of lifting heavy, cooking, and telling the story of my journey. I want to inspire through the clarity of my example. ⚡

Me + My knowledge of the laws of the Universe + Inspired action = Competition ready

Thoughts are manifestations too.

99% of resources have been gathered before I even decided to lay hands on that barbell.

So much momentum has been gathered already. I know where I’m buying my suit, which pair of sparkly Jimmy Choos, and how blonde I want to be when I want to walk across that stage in LA. I also know which dress I’m buying for the evening gown round too. ✨

I also consulted my coach a few months back and as it turns out, she has coached bikini competitors too. 😎

…and that’s not all. 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
