Yes, that is me right there in front the Eiffel tower with my lovely daughters. 

One of my bucket list items was to take them to France and Italy for a couple weeks and it was such an incredible experience.  

I have a thing for France (I am there yearly)  but this was my girls first time to get to experience the whole European thing. 

It was truly a memory I will cherish FOREVER! (thank you God)

Some people may look at this and think “great, its easy for her . . . she has money”  or “how self-serving” and even “that won’t ever happen for me.” 

I so get this, because I used to think and say those things (and in fact, sometimes I slip and find myself falling back into patterns that don’t help me live to my full potential)

But the truth is—I didn’t get to the Eiffel tower, to spending weeks in Europe and having incredible relationships and experiences—by coming up with great excuses and justifications. 

I worked on my shit.

I healed the places that were stuck, dark, angry and just plain icky. 

We can’t get to our next “level” of growth and awareness if we are stuck in patterns that were responsible for getting us there in the first place. 

Simply, we need to change if we want things to change. And it’s really not that hard.

Scary? Maybe a little. 

But whats worse? Stretching to a new level and feeling some discomfort along the way—with the hope of creating new, great things in your life.

Or……playing it safe, staying where you are because it’s “a sure thing, ” safe or comfortable. 

What feels better? What feels worse? 

All it takes to live a life you really want—is to consciously know what it is you desire, write it down, nurture is like a tiny baby kitten and then get (and STAY) excited about that tiny baby kitten (which is the love, the travel, the experiences, the new home, the healed relationship with your mom)

You can’t expect to get to Paris, when your stuck in Wal-mart (no disrespect if you’re a Wal-Mart lover—it just creates a feeling of “lack of” whenever I have ventured in there)

You can’t expect to feel high energy and on top of the world, when your feelings and beliefs have you feeling buried. 

You cant have a ton of $$ in your bank account when you FEEL broke. 

You start the process of living an exquisite life by actually starting to live like you have one. 

But how? How do you get from feeling mostly burnout to feeling beautiful? 

You take baby steps and you are relentless about doing nothing other than working on feeling good, feeling better and being clear about your desires. You gotta know what it is you want first, then you gotta learn to be a vibrational match to that thing.

Then you sit back, chill-ax and know it’s coming (but you cant get irritated + annoyed if you think you’re not getting it when you want it…you can’t fall into that trap)

Most people won’t be able to jump from broke to billion, so you start one day at a time, choose your thoughts, feelings and actions to line up with your Eiffel tower—that thing that truly lights you up and that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. 

Bisous
