I’ve been doing a lot of studying about the power of the mind. I have enjoyed so much learning that I have so much more control over myself, my life, my actions, my destiny - with just the proper management of my thoughts. I have become a student of Abraham Hicks, Jess Lively, Brooke Castillo, Stacey Smith, etc. and have slowly been implementing new habits into my day. I can’t believe how amazingly powerful this mindset shift has been so far. I feel so much more on purpose and incredibly excited about the future and what will unfold.
Getting into flow (or raising my vibe) has become easier because I’ve identified various activities that help me to get there. Yoga, taking a short nap, listening to my favorite playlist, etc. However, it’s so obvious to me that I am still a novice as I fall out and into old habits (i.e. thoughts) so quickly! I am working hard right now to shorten the span between falling out of flow, identifying where I am and finding a way to correct it.
I have been listening and following Jess Lively for a few years now and periodically she does a podcast on The Lively Showabout what she’s afraid to tell her followers. I love this and how it inspires others that follow her to do the same, which is what I am going to do today. I’ve definitely felt like I’ve been holding back and have felt disconnected because of it. So, here goes …
I’ve been drinking more alcohol than normal. I’ve gotten into a routine of a drink, maybe two, per day. Some times social and other times buffering for stress (another post on buffering coming soon). Do I think I have a problem? Nope. But, it’s a habit that I don’t want to keep because I know it does not serve my overall health and well-being.
I’m chubby. I have gained 10 pounds (4.5 kilos) since January and I am packing some additional junk in the trunk (and belly, boobies, arms, face…). The cool thing is, I’ve changed my mindset with this. Previously, I would have berated myself into oblivion over we...
There’s a reason why they say moving is one of the most stressful experiences in life. Add to it being international, it’s totally party time. We are at the tail end of moving from Dubai, UAE to London, UK with a 2 month layover in Spain.
If you know me, you know there is something called “Danielle Time”. My timeline is (typically) faster than others and I get frustrated when others don’t comply. If you want proof, ask my husband.
Partner that with the fact that this move is kicking my ass. 2+ months of being in transition and now I’m finally here - ready to rock and roll!
Here we are ... Day 3. I’ve bought a car, had our shit delivered from Dubai, signed a contract for a new gig (more on that later), terrorized the property manager to fix shit, set various appointments for more admin/burocratic processes, bought beds, bought a dryer and millions of other random things one needs to set up a house.
Today I spent 3 hours trying to get a cup of coffee. The coffee maker that came with the hou...
