Thoughts, Tips, Ideas and Tricks to live your best life
Have you ever felt ready for the next step?.... BUT you had no idea what it was? Or maybe you knew where you wanted to go with your life, but you didn't know how to get there?
A coach can be the perfect solution. Of course you'll need to find the right coach for you. You'll have to get clear on what exactly you want. Do you want a fitness coach? Health coach? Life coach? Business coach? Or maybe a relationship coach? Often coaches are multi-faceted, so it will just take a little bit of interviewing to find the right fit for you.
You might ask, why should I pay so much money to hire someone to tell me what to do? Well, a coach can see things and solutions that you have been overlooking, or didn't even understand. And being held accountable is a wonderful thing. Once you start paying money, that will kick your behind into gear to start taking action, otherwise you are throwing your money away.
I am very fortunate to have a coach, her name is Rebecca. Since I have been working with Rebecca she has helped me to overcome some blocks that I didn't realize I had, more happiness, increase income, achieving some long standing goals... She has helped me with so much! I'm so grateful, my life and business has improved a lot since I have been working with her. Not to mention, my income has increased to accommodate the cost. Of course your experience will be different to mine, but hiring a coach is very worth it. Sometimes a knowledgeable hand is all you need to catapult you into the life of your dreams, and that's exactly what a coach does.

See you there!
I have been looking through my articles, and I noticed that one article is upbeat, and then next is not as upbeat. This is not on purpose. My wish is for all of my articles to be uplifting, inspiring or spark some new idea in you!
But in some of the articles I realize that my inspirational intent is not so obvious. The articles that I have shared that are on the not as upbeat or even sad side, I share them to be vulnerable, something that is very hard for me, and hope that I give you courage to face your own beliefs, limitations or sadness/any feeling that is difficult to be present with. We all have stuff we would rather not have.
Its ok that its there and its ok that you may wish it wasn't.
Weather you tell anyone or not, is not the point. Just in facing yourself is already very courageous, and I promise if you are consistent with personal growth, meditation, and/or being present with your self things in your life will shift for the better. I am amazed at the things that are unfolding in my own life, and there is so MUCH more!!!
Also I have noticed that I have a natural pendulum swing in my emotions, and energy level too. Most likely you are the same. So these articles are representative of where I'm at that day, some days amazing, and some days not amazing. In addition the natural pendulum swing, I feel that as things get better, I discover new beliefs (taking me back) but also that I am able to handle going deeper into my emotions. So as I become happier, I am able to dive deeper into those darker emotions that I have suppressed. Thus making my pendulum swing greater.
For this reason, some articles are darker and some more fun.
This article is in response to Teal's video. As many of her videos do, this one struck home. And one of the steps is to admit to someone else what you want. As I type this I can feel a lot of anxiety building up in me. So watch the video and I'll continue below.
What do I truly want? To have kids, to be happily married. To be valued, important, and taken care of. Even just typing this, it hurts a lot to admit. Now I see why guys would paint me as the perfect wife that other guys would want to marry. This was always an insult to me. Because the same guys that would say this to me, were the ones I usually wanted to date, and they were absolutely not looking for that kind of girl. I didn't see it back then. I wish I did. But pretty much every family I knew had divorced parents. And in my case, my mom was super woman, and my dad, I love him, but he never took any responsibility for anything. He even sued my mom so that he didn't have to pay child support. So as you can imagine, my mom raised me to be very independent. If I ever admitted to her that what I really wanted was to be married and have kids, at the very least I would get a very disapproving reaction. So I guess those guys were right, I do want to be that perfect wife. I love cooking, and I love making my house pretty, and I love being around and raising lots of kids. I do want a strong man that will take care of me. It hurts to realize that I have been fighting this up to now. I have been trying to prove everyone wrong, by working hard, and being independent, and having a strong front, while desperately wishing I wasn't lonely.
Of course we all want different things, so I urge you to watch this video, and look inside yourself to see what you truly want. Right now I don't know exactly what to do to get what I want, and in a way change gears, but that path will evolve. At the very least I feel better, admitting it to the internet that what I truly want is to be happily married with kids. To be a team with my husband, and also to be cherished and taken care of. Someday I'll admit it to my mom too, that I want to be the opposite of what she raised me to be.
With love and courage, Jessica
I know each one of our paths is different. Its wonderful that we are all at different places experiencing different things. Today was a success for me. In a lot of ways. My outside physical world is a reflection of my internal successes today. And my Aunt and Uncle are a giant part of making it happen. I don't know that I will be able to convey how grateful, proud, and happy I am here, but I'm going to try!
Today I went to Ikea with my Aunt and Uncle. This Uncle is a very good man, and a role model for me. This Aunt is also a second mom. I am so blessed to have many second moms <3. I just moved into a new apartment, and am looking for space maximization! So they drove 40 minutes to meet me at Ikea, helped me buy the bed, and then came back to my home & built the bed. Which I didn't ask them to do... I hadn't thought this part out, I just figured I would figure it out... I'm SO GRATEFUL they built the bed for me, I helped when I could. Now I have my dream apartment, with this amazing luxuriously soft rug, and my perfect bed.
Surprisingly to me, I have picked what I used to deem very girly colors. I have light pink sheets, with a silverish rug. Its beautiful! I feel like a princess (heart so happy I'm crying). I've read several books lately, and have been doing a lot of internal work. Some of the stuff has been confronting what femininity means to me, and going into that. Until a month ago, I had no idea I really dis-identified with being feminine, and it was actually a bad thing in my eyes. Then I read the book "Pussy" by Regena Thomas-Hauer, and am connecting to my inner GPS, and I am really surprised by what is coming out. Like me picking super girly things, and identifying with feeling like a princess, and liking it. I am moving into my true heart space. Its a place I have always wanted to be. It feels like love all the time :) I'm getting teary eyed as I type this. Because I am so grateful to be here, and because I'm sad that I didn't understand what this was until now. I have all these wonderful things and I actually believe that I deserve it. This is such a giant accomplishment for me, and I need to celebrate with you. This bed is like a trophy of the emotional confronting marathon that I have been "running" for the past three years. And now I am experiencing they pay-off.
Whatever you have going on in your life, if you are doing and feeling great, awesome! Keep celebrating, keep it up! If you are having a hard time, please keep tuning into your heart, keep doing the things that make you feel happier or better, keep meditating, doing yoga, facing yourself, and keep doing affirmations. And yes, please celebrate all of your successes, no matter how tiny. Each time you celebrate your success, you open the door for more celebration within yourself, and those around you. I know that might be hard for some of you to understand, but its true, so just believe me until you start to see it for yourself.
I want this love for everyone. And its 100% possible.
I'm very passionate about a lot of things, often trying to incorporate all of it into my life!
