When you finally make the decision to choose to become more of who you're truly meant to be, it can be challenging. You might have to "give up" your favourite processed foods, your relationships might become strained, and you'll be pushed to your limits in getting out of your comfort-zone.
.
.
And honestly, sometimes it sucks, because we like comfort; we're use to our comfy lives, even though in actuality they're not comfortable...we suffer in numerous way: extra weight, gut-dysbiosis, foggy-brain, disgruntled food relationships, strained human relationships, and many other extra aches & pains that we've just deemed as "it's just life.." "getting older" and "normal" •

Once you make the decision to move forward in life, you've got to make the choice to keep pursuing your true self & to push through the hard moments, because it's beyond worth it. •

You can press on by daily writing out a gratitude list, staying connected to our life Source, and celebrating the little things, like when your morning drink foam is on-point.

So excited to start using these!! This month I'll be experimenting specifically with essential oils that are said to be helpful with PMS and cycle concerns. .

Have you used essential oils to help heal your PMS and cycle concerns? I'd love to hear your stories!!

Celebrating 7 full years of marriage. It's so important to celebrate, big AND small things. Don't ever neglect to celebrate, it'll make your life richer and fuller.

Too often we just go go go, and don't take time to slow down, stop, rest. Before the New Year begins I'm deliberately taking time to do just those things, so I'm ready for the new year and all that I know it's going to bring (plus everything that I don't know about!) It's been nice to stop and take a breath. My hope is you're doing the same!!

Good morning! I took a bit of a break from Instagram and it was SO Good! It wasn't too long, however it was very needed; I've unfollowed & unsubscribed & am feeling great about it. We should only follow those who add true value to our lives, and that's different for each of us. My goal with social media is to add value to the lives of my friends & family & followers.
This morning we're heading out for a much needed family trip! I've got good tunes, a good book, good coffee & my knitting. I'm excited to be getting away for a few days! I hope you're enjoying your Christmas holiday season as much as we are!! #movingupbodymindandsoul #familyroadtrip #goodtobeback #feelinggreat

Dear friends, a tip: meal plan! Especially if you've got kids! While this has been a challenge for me to find my groove (I'm still finding it), it has been incredibly helpful. Today I'm being back into my freezer meal prep - 30 meals for the month! It's a lot of work, but worth it, I promise! So grab crockpot freezer meals, a note book, your favorite pen, some great tea and get to it! Today I'm drinking Pukka licorice & cinnamon, letting the kids watch a full-length movie & watching the snow keep falling as I do my planning this morning!

Traveling always calls for a new book. I've had this one for over a year, just beckoning to be read. It was in our highly recommended reading list for the Institute of the Psychology of Eating. I'm super excited to dive in. "The Biology of Belief is not a self-help book; it is a self-empowerment book." #whatrebeccareadsnow #travelrequiresgoodbooks
#movingupbodymindandsoul

THIS BOOK. I'm only a few chapters in and I'm like, what?! I'm determined to grow my mindset. Excited to read through the rest of it. Seriously, pick it up and read it. We're not stuck. Praise the Lord.

My husband has taken over my Kombucha hobby. My cupboard is full of brewing goodness. Next he wants to make a variety of keifers & sauerkraut. I'm blessed with a pretty awesome guy.

"Do not fear the threats of the sinner, all his brave show must come to the dunghill and the worms. Exalted today, tomorrow he is nowhere to be found, for he has returned to the dust he came from and his scheming is brought to nothing. My children, be resolute and courageous for the Law, for it will bring you glory." 1 Maccabees 2:62-64

"Judas and his brothers saw that the situation was going from bad to worse and that armies were camping in their territory; they were also well aware that the king had ordered the people's total destruction. So they said to each other, 'Let us restore the ruins of our people and fight for our people and our sanctuary'. The assembly was summoned, to prepare for war, to offer prayer and to implore compassion and mercy." 1 Maccabees 3:42-44

Oh to have the faith like the Maccabees. Righteous, honourable, persistent, brave, courageous, dedicated.
Happy Hanuakkah dear friends, may we all have the faith & bravery to fight for what we know is true.

I heard a quote today about how, in order to get better we've got to let go of good. It struck me. How simple, yet profound. What have I been holding onto because it's 'good enough' when really it could be better? We're taught to just want everything to be 'just fine' when really, we're designed have life, abundant life. Better is better than good enough because better is more excellent or effective in type or quality. It's time to choose better rather than just good enough. And yet again, it's a choice. It's our choice to be just fine, just good enough. And it's our choice to be better, to be more excellent, to be more effective, to live life more abundantly. Let's choose the latter. ~

Cozy blankets, soft lighting, warm tea, good reads. Perfect way to bring in Shabbat ♡ May you find much rest & peace this weekend.

My newest post is up in the blog! Why eating is actually a spiritual act of worship and why if food has no importance then why all the disease and sickness today. https://movingupbodymindandsoul.com/eatingisspiritual/
Link is in my bio ☺

Because both nature and food are good for our health & wellbeing.

"There is nothing like you, there was nothing like you, and there shall be nothing like you." •
Truth from the tea. While we have many similarities, we are each unique, with literally no one exactly like us. Therefore we shouldn't try to be anyone else, but rather choose to become who we need to be, the best version of our self, who we were truly meant to be.

Hormones can be challenging to say the least! This post is long over-due {I've been working on it for far too long} and I'm finally so happy to share the 8 different supplements to help with PMS, menses challenges & hormonal support! While you can't out-supplement a bad diet you can support a healthy diet with effective supplementation. Read about 8 of them on the blog now! {7 of which I take fairly regularly!} Www.movingupbodymindsoul.com/pmssupplements

Shabbat Shalom dear friends! May your weekend be full of delicious organic food, lovely friends & good conversations, and lots of soaking deep in Yeshua.

"Remember the day, Shabbat {Sabbath}, to set it apart for Elohim {God}. You have six days to labour and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat {Sabbath} for YHWH your Elohim {God}. On it, you are not to do any kind of work - not you, your son or your daughter, not your male our female slave, not your livestock, and not the foreigner staying with you inside the gates to your property. For in six days, YHWH made heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them; but on the seventh day He rested. This is why YHWH blessed the day, Shabbat {Sabbath}, and separated it for Himself." The Fourth Commandment from the Holy Scriptures


One of the biggest "badges of honour" today is the "badge" of busyness. So many run around being busy {not actually being productive or accomplishing much} BUT its self-destructive to not rest & refresh ourselves. •

Studies show rest actually reduces stress, reduces inflammation & risk of heart disease, adds years to your life, boosts the immune system, restores mental energy, and more.


Busyness is an Enemy, not a badge of honor. Choose to battle it, not wear it. If the Creator of everything chose to rest, how much more do we need it?! Choose to rest for one full day and see how it transforms your life.

When you've worked hard all day, make sure to relax and practice some self-care...your body will thank you, and so will your loved ones.


Tonight I'm enjoying a game of dice and homemade kombucha: pineapple, dandelion & rosemary. Delicious.

"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, it's insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction." - Cynthia Occelli



Choose to be completely undone so you may become who you're truly meant to be.

Have you used essential oils to help heal your PMS and cycle concerns? I'd love to hear your stories!!

If you choose to eat real food then you can choose to eat pudding for breakfast...no negative, crappy side-effects included. Plus it makes for happy kids. And it pairs well with dandy-blened.

The day has {finally} come to an end. Two days of rest, I'll gladly partake. Happy Yom Teruah.

"I have so much to do that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer." Martin Luther .
.
Exactly how I'm feeling today. With two Sabbath days in a row I'm feeling the pressure. Thankfully, I've got the essentials to help me through: The Word of YWHW, organic green juice, morning tea and Stress Away. Plus the breaking clouds and knowing we're eating fresh bread tonight with our soup.

What helps get you started and keep going through your day?

Another meatless meal that's worth another go! This "Brunch Potatoes with Kale & Poached Eggs" was easy, satisfying, full of nutrients and a hit with the kids! Winning all around! Next time I think I'll try it with sweet potatoes.
Thanks @alivehealth for offering yummy recipes! .

Be sure to write your own story, rather than allow others to write yours for you. We all have more power than we choose to believe.

Celebrating 7 full years of marriage. It's so important to celebrate, big AND small things. Don't ever neglect to celebrate, it'll make your life richer and fuller.

Getting outside and running free in nature is always the answer. Especially with those you love dearly.

I am currently sitting here fighting the urge to eat the rest of the zucchini brownies.
.
.
Sometimes fighting the urge to "eat our feelings" can be a difficult challenge. But one that's worth working through. .
.
When we choose to stuff our feelings down they get lodged in us and begin to manifest in different ways, often quite unhealthy ways as well. It can be hard to sit with our feelings and process them out and turn to The Source of life; we've been conditioned to do otherwise. But when we choose to go to The Source instead, we find truth and healing. And while sometimes it can take a bit longer to work through our stuff and feelings, the effects last longer and there aren't any negative side effects {like guilt, extra body inches or sugar crashes}. .
.
So tonight rather than eating all of the brownies, I choose to sit with The Word and embrace the sun that is finally breaking through the clouds from this rainy rainy day.
.
.
If you are fighting the urge to eat your feelings, I encourage you to keep fighting it by surrendering to our Source of life. And don't be afraid to feel your feelings. We have feelings for a reason and they need not to be ignored, but rather welcomed and embraced.

The other day we watched 100 Days in the Raw on @fmtv_official and my 6 year old daughter, at the end of the film declared "I'm a vegan!" And so I questioned her if she knew what it meant, she said no haha! So we talked about what it meant and the variations and she decided she wanted to cut out meat for 100 days, but she doesn't want to be vegan because she likes cheese {funny enough we've cut out dairy (we eat organic ghee & organic grass-fed cheese occasionally) because it gives her eczema}. .
.
That night at the dinner table she didn't eat any chicken and she told her dad about what she learnt, and he agreed to not eat meat for the next 100 days either of she chose not to. .
.
My only problem is it now it makes my meal planning a little trickery as we also rarely eat grains of any kind... so if you've got meat-free, dairy-free, grain-free recipes you love send 'em my way!
I'm proud of my daughter for making health choices based on information she's learning from, and for choosing to stick to it even when her dad questions her about certain things she loves to eat (like all-beef 'meat sticks' haha).
.
.
If you get a chance I recommend watching the documentary 100 Days in The Raw!

"For things to change, you've got to change. For things to get better, you've got to get better. It's easy to do. But then, it's just easy not to do." - Jeff Olson, The Slight Edge

Do yourself a favour and go pick up this book, read it, and put the principles into practice, for the positive. You won't regret it. And neither will anyone else in your life.

We saw 2 foxes playing together, swam in the river, enjoyed dinner outside, played tag, chased the squirrels, examined giant tree -mushrooms, watched the woodpecker, and just truly enjoyed each other's company. The only thing missing was my essential oils mosquito spray.

Day 1 of self-experimenting! Today I'm feeling quite fatigued (recovering from the amazing hiking the other day), so I'm super happy I'm finally starting. .
Each day morning I'm taking like 15 pills...plus more at lunch & dinner...that's a lotta pills for me! But here's to a clear mind and a peaceful period!

Went on a great little hike today with the my little family! So wonderful to be outside in healing, therapeutic nature! Exactly what we needed. I've lived up here for nearly 6 years and I can't believe I haven't been here yet...so gorgeous. This little hike was easily doable with kids and we got to see waterfalls, hike along a narrow, steep ridge and saw some legit dinosaur foot prints 🐊
🍃🍃
Being in nature is most certainly my happy place; I'll be quite tired tomorrow I'm sure, but it's more than worth it. 🌞🌞
If you need some healing, get outside, in nature, and soak in all it's goodness.

Doing some prep work for my self-experiment! Figuring out what I'm going to be taking, doses, etc., and because I believe in a holistic approach I'm also deciding what else I'm going to be doing to cover each area of my life. While I'm not sure what to expect, I am expecting some good changes and I will have a list of what I'm hoping for! I am so done with long, painful, depressive, angry pms & menstrual cycles. I've gone through them for far too long, and I'll be more than happy when they're gone.
Check out my blog for more of my story! They latest post in the series will be up tomorrow!

I can't help but be in disbelief when I hear "do I give him stevia sweetened pop which will give him ___ or do I give him aspartame sweetened pop which will give him ___? I just don't know what to do." ~
FYI: there's a 3rd option!! Give your child NEITHER. Yes. You read that right. You don't have to give your child(ren) pop of any kind. I'm for real. And you really don't have to feel bad about it either; honestly I'd feel bad about giving it to them, knowing the harm it's doing to them. If you want a fizzy drink, drink some good kombucha, or add some natural flavours to sparkling water. ~
As parents, we need to make wise decisions for our children, and if we continue to feed our kids junk, we're going to continue to get junk results. There IS a better way.
~
I guess having these sorts of conversations is good for me, because it shows my job as a holistic health & wellness practitioner is very much needed. Silver lining I suppose...
~
On a whole other note, the sunset was superb tonight!

Homemade Kombucha jello!!
My kids are kids, they like fun snacks, I however dislike what's in a lot of what's consider to be "fun snacks" - food dyes, faux food, chemicals, pesticides, loads of sugar...death traps in the making...anyway... So today I made a FAMILY size (I don't understand the teeny-tiny recipes, I've always gotta double, triple or even quadruple recipes...) adapted version of Wellness Mama's healthy jello: .
.
• 6 cups of kombucha (I used my homemade Om citrus orange energy mushroom mix flavoured kombucha)
• 1 cup cooled water
• 1 cup almost boiling water
• 4 tablespoons Kosher, grass-fed gelatin (I used Great Lakes) • Fresh or frozen fruit (original recipe calls for 1-2 cups, I just dumped in some organic frozen raspberries)
1. Pour cool water in large container or deep glass baking dish and add gelatin powder - whisk briskly until it's all mixed (it'll thicken up)
2. Add hot water and stir to mix (should be thinner after this)
3. Combine with kombucha and mix well
4. Add fruit in, mix of you want
5. Cover and put in the fridge for 2-3 hours (or longer) until it's all set!
6. Dig in and enjoy!
(You can find the original version on Wellness Mama's website)
.

"That was good!" Said my oldest with an empty bowl and a big smile :)

It's imperative we learn, understand and choose to believe the truth we are holistic, interconnected beings. We are physical, emotional, mental, spiritual beings. .
.
I believe if one area of our life is "amiss" then so will the others, to some degree. And it's only by recognizing how interconnected all of our "systems" are, and choosing to address each one will we become who we are truly meant to be. .
.
Our symptoms have messages attempting to speak to us. It's time we learn to pause, quiet down, listen, being open to new ways of living & being. It's time we become open to the ideas that, perhaps, our fatigue is asking us to slow down in life AND cut out certain foods from our diet; perhaps, our angered outbursts are hidden hurts & fears shoved down for too many years AND from eating foods we're sensitive to; perhaps, our ADHD tendancies are asking us to take a good look at the processed food in our diets & how they are negatively impacting our brains AND pointing us to the fact that we are over stimulated AND we are missing very needed nutrients in our diet AND we are hiding from ourselves, so we're keeping ourselves busy, always on the go and unable to sit still.
.
.
I again, believe it's imperative we begin to look at the whole picture, the whole being, for we truly are wholistic beings. We need to do it for ourselves, our loved ones, our towns, our cities, our countries, our world; its time we all choose to actively become more of who we were truly meant to be. .
.
On this Sabbath day, I encourage you to take some time, and truly quiet down, and ask yourself: what is ___ trying to speak to me about? Could be the chronic bloating, the binge eating, the cancer, the busyness, the autoimmune disease, the heavy period, the constant coughs & colds...anything, just take time and learn to listen, and then choose to act, choose to become more of who you were truly meant to be, for we were not designed to be chronically sick, we were meant for more.

This one's going to ruffle some feathers...
Tonight I'm enjoying a quiet house, some natural calm, and learning all about the light side of cannabis.
This docuseries is super fascinating. Fascinating history. Fascinating stories. Fascinating facts. Surprisingly intriguing.
Find the series through the link in my profile!

Watching That Vitamin Movie tonight for our at-home-date-night! I'm really excited to watch this one, as I'm a firm believer in natural healing & health so I love learning more about and hearing the stories. Thanks @fmtv_official for adding this one!
.
.

I'm Instagram story-skills are lacking...so here's what's in my bug spray!

1. Half the bottle of witch hazel
2. Half {distilled} filtered water
3. 20 drops lavender
4. 20 drops lemongrass
5. 10 drops peppermint
Make sure to shake up the bottle before spraying to get it mixed as much as you can, cause well, water & oil don't mix 😉

I'm really hoping this keeps the kids bug-bite free!
May your Tuesday be sunny & mosquito free!!

Fun times when the kids are in bed ;) I love summer nights up here when the sun stays up past our bedtime.

Happy Sunday friends!!! .
Today is the first day of the week, so prep day, and since it's the last Sunday of the month is Powersheets day too! I'm excited to sit down with them today as I'm feeling a bit inspired & creative right now.
.
My last batches of kombucha turned out amazing! So I'm hoping to do another fantastic batch today!
.
I hope your Sunday is as beautiful and delightful as it is here!!

I'm excited to finally be thisclose to launching!! .
.
Cleansing & detoxifying is a natural design of our bodies, however in today's day our bodies often need some help! .
.
In my 21 Day Holistic Transformational Nutrition Cleanse I combine both my Transformational Nutrition training & my Psychology of Eating training to bring a holistic approach to cleansing that will bring the results you're looking for while doing a cleanse. .
.
Spring is a fantastic time to cleanse as our bodies naturally want to shed winter! .
.
Stay tuned and sign up for my email news letter to be the first to know AND get a special limited-time discount code for the cleanse when it launches!!

I decided to experiment with flavouring one of my kombuchas with Om, and I'm pleasantly surprised!
.
.
The kombucha aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, is great for detoxification, your gut health and more!
.
.
Medicinal mushrooms provide immune system support, antioxidants, beta glucans, lots of B vitamins & vitamin C. This particular one is 'Energy' and has 6 medicinal mushrooms, Yerba Mate & turmeric root powder! With this type of energy, unlike many other 'energy drinks,' there's no crash or jitters! .
.
This is helpful for focus & concentration - which I need as much of today as I can get as I'm trying to finish up a bit of work before sharing the spring/summer cleanse!!
What's your favourite consumable energy source?

Why have I not listened to this sooner?!?! I'm not too far in and oh my! Brené Brown is very relatable; I was hooked on her talk with her therapist...vulnerability is exquisite 😂😂😂😂
.
.
Have you read Daring Greatly? What was your favourite part?
I think this might easily become one of my favourite books...

I'm so excited for 3 days from now!
Finally caught up on my homemade Kombucha, and this time I did a bunch of experimenting: Pukka blackcurrant beauty, Pukka womankind, dandelion-mint-rosemary, chicory root-strawberry-ginger, strawberry ginger-turmeric, raspberry-mint-ginger, strawberry-blueberry, Om citrus orange energy mushroom mix, mango-pear, and pear!
Ahhhhh! I'm really excited to try the ones flavoured with herbal teas and the raspberry-mint-ginger!

Today I finally felt more like the family I dream about being: adventerous, outdoorsy, carefree, joyous.
.
.
We actually got out of the house {and out of the town} to go explore & find some freshness.
Going for walk/hike way out in the wilderness today was just what we needed. Saw a snake, 2 moose, almost lost my dog, enjoyed the fresh air, introduced the kids to the woods, saw a rushing {dirty} waterfall, breathed God's creation in deep. It was so so good. I can't wait to go back out again.
Great way to spend Mother's Day: with my precious kids doing something I love. I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day also!

There have been some good changes going on around here lately. .
.
Working through fear & shame. Coming to realizations. Listening & following more of what I feel I've been called to do. .
.
We've (I've) chosen to start observing the Sabbath, so today we're colouring, learning about The Word, relaxing, and just being together. .
.
It's not perfect. It's lovely. I am blessed.
Shabbat shalom!

Today calls for some good treats: Mongozo Premium Pilsner & organic chocolate while enjoying a brief, warm spring thunder & lightening storm, listening to the birds chirping. Totally sucking up all the sunshine that's breaking through the clouds, staring me in the face.
It's a good evening to be alive.

Happy weekend friends!

Brew Dr. Kombucha, Thieves & Sweet Orange essential oil diffusing, and listening to @seancroxton latest interview with Dr. Srini Pillay to help me get through a bit more of the never-ending to-do list! .
.
If you haven't ever listened to Sean interview someone, you're missing out; he's one of my favourite podcasts to listen to. Most certainly worth the time to tune in. Seriously, nearly evertime I tune in I add another book to my reading list {and Dr. Pillay's book is now no exception! I can't wait to read it!} And I learn something and feel like I grow every time I tune in. .
.
On another note, my latest post in my series about my health challenge and being a holistic practitioner is up on the blog!

My list of things to get done is pretty long, and it only seems to be growing. And I'm outta Kombucha! So glad Costco carries a few different kinds to tide me over until I finally get mine done.
__
First time trying Brew Dr. Kombucha - this Clear Mind is fantastic! I most certainly felt better after drinking it.
__
We don't do a lot of popcorn - it's a rare treat for the kids. Today I found this though at Save-on-foods: Activated Superfood Popcorn. Organic, Live Cultures, Non-GMO, Gluten-free. Awesomeness all around.
__
I now feel a little bit better about tackling the giant to-do list. And it's super sunny. Bonus!
What's your favourite snack and Kombucha?!

Finally! Some bread that for real worked out!
This was the second try with @legitbreadcompany and it worked beautifully! Firm, yet bouncy/soft, not dense. Looks like a real loaf of bread. No holes throughout. Can't wait to get some more of this mix. Next time I'm going toast and top it with homemade chia-jam. Today the kids were thrilled to have sandwiches.
Thanks Legit Bread Company for making a legit product & recipe.

Sometimes, some days just go so perfectly. No fighting. No yelling. Just smooth love. It's mornings like this where I try to soak it all in so deeply so as not to forget, and, so as to remember that it's possible.

Praise Jesus for relaxed Sabbath days. Praise Jesus for fresh muffins and Dandy Blend. Praise Jesus for family devotions.

Now to carry it throughout the day...

Shame & fear. Two things that have been holding me back from a lot of things. I've finally written my latest post in a new series: Hiding From My Story.
In this first post I share about how my shame & fear have been affecting my life. .
.
When we hide, we isolate. And when we isolate, oftentimes, when it's not for actual rejuvenation, it taints and twists and changes our reality and our perspective. It can distort truth. - you can read more at movingupbodymindandsoul.com/hiding-from-my-story

Celebrated the last day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread tonight with a Resurrection dinner! It felt so nice to celebrate Christ's resurrection: honoured Him as our Passover Lamb with roasted lamb; broke braided bread to represent His body as well as the Trinity; ate foods that Christ would have eaten in His day; gave the kids new outfits to represent that we are new creations in Christ. .
.
I'm loving the new tradition of celebrating our "by default" Jewish heritage and all that Christ has to offer; what a blessing this past week has been.

Meal prepping us easier than you think! It may feel like more time up front, however in reality it saves time...and money! And sometimes a little brain space ;) This soup is an awesome base soup in which I'll add fresh ingredients to so we don't feel like we're eating the same thing (like fresh basil, chopped tomatoes & sausage; some salsa, cumin & fresh cilantro for another - so many possibilities!)
This for real makes healthier easy & simple and gives me more time to do other things, like read to my kids, work on my website & business, or get my homework done!
And that machine is the Sous Chef by Breville. And I'm in love with it. Saves me even more time with my meal prepping (especially because I tend to do monthly meal planning: 30 or so meals for the month all at once!)

Trying out the @Dandyblend today! I'm pleasantly surprised by how much I'm enjoying it! I'm not sure I could drink it straight, but like this it's delicious & seems to be satisfying my coffee craving!

Mindset The New Psychology of Success - How we can learn to fulfill our potential by Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D. is so far one of my top books I've read this year. The last two chapters are my favourite!

Reading this book has helped me see where things have "gone wrong" in my life and why I didn't pursue certain things and why some things never worked out for me. And I love how she ends the book with a clear reminder that a mindset change doesn't happen overnight, nor is about just picking up a few pointers, but rather "it's about seeing things in a new way." And that we must keep practicing it and choosing a new way of thinking: when we change to a growth mindset we are committed "to growth, and growth takes plenty of time, effort, and mutual support." Are you a parent? A teacher? In a relationship? Have friends? Coach others? Not getting results you desire? I highly recommend picking up this book and reading it.

"Did changing to a growth mindset solve all my problems? No. But I know that I have a different life because of it - a richer one. And that I'm a more alive, courageous, and open person because of it." Carol Dweck

I've been thinking about this sort of thing lately.
Too often we think we don't have a choice in our life circumstances. But it's a lie. Sure we can't control others, however we can control what we do.
We have the choice to either stay where we are, or move ahead. Get the help. Read the book. Throw out the junk.
As Christians, we become new creations in Christ. The old is gone, the new has come. And we have he choice to live that out or not.
We read The Word. We create new pathways of thinking. We choose not to give up when things aren't moving as fast as we want it to be.
We make the choice to live our own life, not anyone else's. Cause at the end of the day, it's still a choice. Either way.
Today, I'm choosing not to live in fear of sharing my story. Today I'm choosing to move up in body, mind and soul.
What choice are you making?

Nothing like trying to get a quick mini-yoga energy boost in to re-center & find a little inner peace before heading out the door with the youngest ones all over touching everything trying to stand on your earthing mat that you're taking up most of the space on...
