There’s just something about a new project, that fires me up. 🔥

It’s been a very long time for something that lights my fire. There are things here and there that sort of spark it.🔥

But I’m talking about the butterflies 🦋 in the stomach and the I want to work on this project all day feeling.

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only one out there that has in mind that won’t shut up. 🙀

I’m constantly thinking about things, not necessarily stress, just things!!

Some people want to quiet their mind. I find that it is exciting more than anything.

What flutters through your mind all day??

When you become a mom all you want to do is provide an amazing life for your kids. My husband and I both came home yesterday on cloud nine knowing that we put ourselves in the right place at the right time for our kids to experience one of the most exciting moments of all of our lives. 😮😮😮

There’s just something about an Olympian that inspires everyone.🇺🇸🥇🇺🇸🥇🇺🇸🥇

I got chills last night when the US women’s Olympic hockey team walked into the restaurant and everyone applauded. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Here’s where the story takes a more significant turn. See this woman right here!!

I spotted her getting her food, we locked eyes and she came over to our table and saw my daughters.

I told her that my youngest would be meeting her later (Her Hockey team the @lalionshockey had arranged a meet and greet) she acknowledge that. 🦁

I also told her that my oldest daughter isn’t going to have the same opportunity to meet them later, so this is very special that you came over here. (I actually pulled her from soccer practice - sorry @select_cities_soccer_club 😝 because I just didn’t know what was going to happen)

She asked the girls if they wanted to see something special, because she didn’t know if they would be able to later. 🥇

She proceeded to pull out her gold medal and let them hold it, she even let me hold it.🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂

Damn that thing is heavy!

She she asked my daughter what position she played, and asked her if she wanted to wear the gold medal. •
My daughter freaked out and said no in a nervous voice.🙄

The fact that @kendallcoyne26 came over to us and knew just how powerful her presence was for my daughters made my world as a mom and as a child and adult athlete.

There is something so powerful, energizing, amazing, unreal about country pride, women pride, and being a mom!!

Don’t take me off this cloud ☁️ please! #IDENTITYME #POWERHOUSEWOMEN

Is there a such thing as an average day in your life?🤔

I generally start my mornings on my day off with my husband, eating breakfast at our favorite place @eggplantation after dropping the kids off at school.🍴

Coffee is a must and I finish my full breakfast (made up of berries, 2 eggs over medium) with my 1/4 avocado and 1/2 dry English muffin (my whole breakfast is 5points) ☕️🥚

I follow my breakfast with a couple hours of storytelling on my blog, my free facebook group, and preparing for my weekly show on my facebook page.🎥

Taking a much needed break before the kids get out of school I can be found getting a one hour foot massage (yes head, neck and back are included) 💆🏼‍♀️💆🏼‍♀️💆🏼‍♀️

I tend to only spend a few very focused hours on my business so as to free up time with the family once they are all Home. To me this is the most perfect day on the planet!

Is your daily routine consistent? Is there one habit you can’t miss, without feeling out of sorts?🌺🌺🌺🌺


Imagine yourself on a desert island 🏝

What would your bare minimums be?!?!

This sums me up ☕️💕

On my PROJECT CURIOUS QUEST I shared this super fun question in the IdentityMe.club group and some of the answers were so fun🧞‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Jump on a trampoline!”👯‍♀️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Blowing big giant bubbles and flying kites with my feet deep in the sand”🏝⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“We had an amazing wooden playground we would go to. The ‘can’t touch the ground tag’ games were EPIC!!”🏰⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤔If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves inhabiting your current body. What would your five-year-old self do first? 🎡🏟🎠🛴🤹🏼‍♀️🎪🏄🏽‍♂️⛸🍭

Hot damn I’m tired! 😴

If you’ve watched my story recently you will see that I am kinda burning the candle at both ends.

I was up late watching the gold medal game and then last night watching my daughter take to the ice at the @lakings game. Truthfully she was the only thing exciting about that game 👍🏼😺

I’m actually on call tonight after my 12 hour shift.

When asked “how do you do it?”

I simply say - I’ll find the time to catch up on my sleep. And I DO!

So tonight it will be a power nap 💤 after work and before call JUST IN CASE.

Tomorrow morning will be a lazy, sleepy morning and then back at the Kings game.

I know how important sleep is but I also know how important COFFEE ☕️ IS!!! #FITBUSYNURSE #IDENTITYME #COMMUNITYOVERCOMPETITION

Can’t stop talking about last nights Woman’s Gold Medal Hockey Game 😲😲

I turned the game on in the 3rd period thinking OH NO not again!!

And then it happened!! The tying goal 🤗🤗🤗🤗

And then I got completely sucked into the nail biting moments and shared them with my friends on Facebook.

The fact that so many of my friends and family who DON’T watch hockey were WATCHING this game was so heart warming. ❤️❤️❤️

They were watching because of my love for the game......why do I love a sport I started playing when I was 25????💥

I love this sport because I get to play with these women. This sport is more than just a sport where you can get your ass kicked. This sport is COMMUNITY!✨✨

It was so apparent last night that the US 🇺🇸AND CANADA 🇨🇦 teams were such a close knit community - Their passion was exuding from them displayed in tears and smiles.

But the positive posts on social media last night just made me proud to be a part of this community.💃🏼

This sisterhood!👯‍♀️

I felt like we could be right there with them celebrating together.👨🏼‍🎤

One more reason I created a community to spend time in with people I WANT to hang out with.👱🏼‍♀️

Community and being part of a team requires trust. With trust you gain an amazing experience!✌🏼👊🏼👊🏼

Proud to be a part of both. If you are looking for your own version of TEAM USA 🇺🇸 I can tell you we have it in our IDENTITYME.CLUB community. Join us! #IDENTITYME #FITBUSYNURSE #COMMUNITYOVERCOMPETITION

Best feeling ever a when your family says “mom the meal is awesome” 🙀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Doesn’t happen all the time in my house.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I try to experiment and work with flavor but sometimes it very much falls flat! 👎🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But last night I knew I needed very minimal points and lots of flavor, so I dug in and made this 6 point meal.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chicken and LOTS OF SPICE!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The only pints in this meal is the rice. So my family had the rice and I ate the chicken “jambalaya”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My meal was actually 0 points 🤗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Best part about the whole meal was that my whole family, picky ones and all absolutely loved it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who’s with me on celebrating when our family loves our cooking?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s your story?

What’s your flavor of shit sandwich 🥪?

“You have to decide what sort of shit you’re willing to deal with. So the question is not so much what are you passionate about? The question is what are you passionate enough about that you can endure the most disagreeable aspects of the work?”

“Example, if you want to be a professional artist, but you aren’t willing to see your work rejected hundreds, if not thousands, of times, then you’re done before you start. If you want to be a hot shot court lawyer, but can’t stand the sight of an 80 hour work week, then I’ve got bad news for you.”

So for me 💖💖🌺🌺 I have learned over the years, that my priorities are spending quality time with my family and not sacrificing that time with my business. I have finally found a balance between the two. FINALLY!!! But that’s the sandwich I’m willing to work with ✌🏼

My question is if you’re already dealing with a Shit Sandwich without building a lifestyle or business • why not endure one that is working for you rather than you working for it.

It is totally possible!!

🌟The World Needs my Light! 🌟 This may be so hard for you to picture. It was incredibly hard for me to picture 10 years ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Each year that passes I am more and more convinced that EVERYONE is meant for greatness in this world. We all had aspirations when we were kids. What’s funny is I wrote a letter saying I wanted to be a Nurse when I grew up because I wanted to help doctors and make money. 😂😂
For the life of me I don’t EVER remember writing that, but I have a framed piece of paper my mom so graciously saved for me On my wall reminding me of that. ✍🏼✍🏼
Ironically I love being a nurse but I know I am so much more than that. 🚀🚀
My point is that when we were kids we used to dream, dream of what our little minds saw ourselves doing. There was no limit, we just said it off the top of our head. 🙀🙀
What happened to us?! We forgot we wanted to be SOMEONE... we followed the path we thought we were supposed to travel and HERE WE ARE!! 🤜🏼🤛🏼
We have forgotten that the WORLD needs us. Needs us in anyway we want to pour our heart out into...... 🌎
Today’s exercise is just that..... I want you to think of zero boundaries, no paychecks, no bills. Just your heart and how you can give to the world....... 💖💖
I have found as soon as our mind starts thinking in that direction, the WORLD comes to us. 🌎
This may just be an exercise to OPEN up the possibilities, not decide on what that ONE THING is..... 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
I challenge you just to close your eyes and think today 🤔🤔🤔🤔

It’s a new year👋, so I know there are new friends here on Instagram and Facebook. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d be honored to introduce myself by listing a few funny things about me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌺My favorite thing to say is “DUDE!”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌺I was a seat filler at the 1990 soul train awards🎧
🌺and my favorite thing to wear while at home on the couch are Pink Boyfriend sweat pants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🍌This is an odd mix of who I am, since we’re now friends, tell me something cool 😎about you too!🤗🤗🤗

What motivates you? 🔹Find that answer🔹Chase that dream🔹Live your life🔹With no regrets.

I ❤️ this quote because at the end of the day that’s what it comes down to😀

Identifying what your true motivation is can help you keep going when things get tough (which they will 😉). What feeds your soul? 🧘‍♀️- and it’s not money!

What gives you mental energy?

Me?- I LOVE learning.! 👩🏼‍🏫 cracking something hard to figure out 🤓
