Alison Faulkner  Sharer, carer, inappropriate dancer. πŸ’ƒ πŸŽ™Podcast: Awesome with Alison! πŸ’—: Workshops, events, fun & love πŸ’Œ

I share this video for 2 VERY IMPORTANT reasons πŸ‘― 1. It never ceases to amaze me how much it matters WHO you surround yourself with. As we've been doing the #awesomewithalison podcast, it causes me to reflect on how certain things have come about in my bizznazz. And I won't say it's WHO you know, but more like the places you go that are out of your routine and the people you meet there. πŸ‘― If you want to UP your awesome in life you can't let downers suck your energy. πŸ‘Έ Which brings me to 2. That's one reason (other than raising 50k for charity) we wanted to do the @cometogetherevent πŸ’ƒ As we COME TOGETHER as women to do good, it raises our collective energy and awesomeness. (And occasionally leads to mildly inappropriate dancing. πŸ‘―) 🐩 @cometogetherevent IS sold out πŸ™ŒπŸ» but the getaway giveaway is still open and @centsofstyle is putting you and a friend up in SLC ❀️ and giving you tickets to the event, and there's 10k in prizes, like awesomeness coaching with me and $250 to @freshlypicked which is owned by this bootylicious bestie @susan.m.petersen who makes my life better by being in it, and who I met like 5 years ago by participating in @bijoumarket which is also run by bad A women β€οΈπŸ™ŒπŸ» SO if I've done anything right, it's stepping out of my comfort zone and surrounding myself with new AWESOME people when I get the chance. It's not always comfortable, but comfortable doesn't get you awesome. ❀️ I hope you'll enter through the link in the @cometogetherevent (yes locals enter too! The airfare will go to the @utahcountycjc if you win) and the giveaway ends Friday at midnight! #thecometogetherevent @centsofstyle #thealisondanceshow

I'm not addicted. I'm committed. #younaileditalison

CAN YOU EVEN believe they let me go on live television?! πŸ˜‚ @goodthingsutah you guys are GOOOOOD TIMES! Thanks for letting me talk about the @cometogetherevent and for not getting mad when I pelvic thrusted at the camera. 😬 I'm a lucky lady!

Did you know that every freaking month in 2017 I'm sending out a FREE Year of Awesome calendar? Each month has an awesome attribute, and April's is RESILIENCE! 🐩 Then I write a challenge for each week to help cultivate that attribute! How do I write these challenges? By trying them all out on myself, and finding what works in my life. I also read a lot guys πŸ˜‚. Anyway, one way to boost your resilience, or your ability to BOUNCE BACK after challenges, is to build your self-efficacy. Self-efficacy is your belief that you can DO AWESOME THINGS. πŸ’ƒ How do you boost this? Learn something new. THAT'S IT. πŸ‘― Learn a new skill, try a new recipe. Hell, it's the concept of making your bed. Master something small and you'll increase faith in yourself to do something bigger. This week I'm doing lots of new things, and I hope you'll join me. πŸ™ŒπŸ» May's calendar will go out later this week, so be sure to join Club Alison, my newsletter, through my site. My newsletters are just me writing about how I implement these challenges in my life! And they're a good time. So if you've enjoyed this cuddling we've been doing on IG, let's make out in your inbox. 😘 I guarantee you'll enjoy yourself. πŸ“Έ @intheloupephotography #alisonsyearofawesome

It's a cake! 🦈 I have the Great British Baking Show to thank for putting some lovin back in my oven! Ready, set BAKE! Sprinkles and recipe from @sweetapolita ALWAYS

Sometimes you promise your buddy boy a shark birthday party, but then you have a lot going on, and don't actually plan a shark party. Then you decide at very least you can make a shark cake, and then he sees the cake and shouts, "TODAY IS MY SHARK PARTY?!" And starts detailing all the things you talked about, that you didn't realize he was old enough to REALLY comprehend...πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ And then you start sobbing because you feel like the worst mom ever because birthday parties are the ONE THING you do. 😭 Then you pull yourself together, skip church, and create a shark party, AND it becomes one of the best and most fun days of your life. 🦈 Because it turns out the reason I started throwing parties is because I LOVE IT. And when there's no cameras or pressure, and things don't need to be picture perfect, it's a PERFECT PARTY. Because his face, guys HIS FACE. Plus, not everyone owns shark costumes and cardboard waves BUT GUESS WHO DOES?! THIS GIRL. Anyway. The whole point of this is sometimes you need to skip church and make shark cakes--and suck at life so you can rock at life. And also, the universe has your back--and shark costumes.

Several years ago I met this guy and he asked, in all sincerity, "Why do you post so many unattractive pictures of yourself online?" The funny thing is I DIDN'T THINK I WAS DOING THAT. πŸ˜‚ I was dumbstruck. He didn't intend to be offensive, I think what he meant was, he didn't understand why I didn't try to post pictures that showed myself in my best light. But at the time his question shocked me so much I didn't have a good answer. But as I scrolled through some particularly absurd pictures of myself the other week, I remembered his question and an answer immediately came to mind. Why do I post unattractive pictures of myself? BECAUSE I CAN. πŸ’ƒ The funny thing is, it has been harder for me to learn to post attractive pictures of myself. To me that actually feels more vulnerable, and I've tried to learn to do that too. Because I think it's just as important to allow ourselves to feel beautiful, as it is to not care about always looking flawless. The trick is not attaching our worth to what's in the picture-good or bad. We're so much more awesome than any damn picture. Even though, let's face it, this picture is preeeeettty good. πŸ˜‚ If you watch my stories you all know how I feel about this new jumpsuit! Thanks for letting me steal it and your wall @centsofstyle πŸ˜˜πŸ™ŒπŸ» #centsofstylewall

RAD IS 4!!! Happy birthday to the boy with the silkiest hair, silliest laugh, and sweetest kisses! Rad is our good times guy, he's always down to boogie! 🦈 He worships Ginger and can't put on his own shoes without total defeat. Which is fine because I'll happily put them on for him until he's 30! Come to mummy. Hashtag nobodycaresaboutyourkids πŸ˜‚

Sometimes holidays are SO MUCH FUN and sometimes holidays are just days that are really really exhausting, and are SUPPOSED to be so much fun. 🐰 Either way, I'm beyond grateful for everything that really matters, and grateful for a day to let go of everything that doesn't matter quite so much. Happy Easter friends!

I had a magical day teaching branding and business and LIIIIFE with the most amazing group of students at my fourth Build an Awesome Brand workshop! The workshops involve me talking for many, many hours, so now I feel like these bunnies and flowers! But that reminds me of my MAD rhyming powers! And also how much I love starburst jellybeans--only the sours, OOOOH see I got you, did you think I was done? Also giving these cookies away yesterday was so much fun. Yes, I got over the "owers" rhyme and started a new one, guys I need to go to bed πŸ˜‚ so I need to be done. But wait, back to the workshop it was the best, and I'm super grateful for all the good people in this world, but holy hell now I'll give it a rest. Or wiiiilllll I? Ok ok ok I know you really want me to say it: chest. #alisonscookieparty
