The Blissful Breakthrough That Happens When You Show Up With Purpose

I'm not sure how to articulate what I feel. I'm writing this just after getting off my New Year-New Season Intention Setting session with my advanced mentorship clients. I taught a lesson on how to frame intentions in a whole new way - a way I've never seen or heard done before - and it landed with my people. Boy, did it land.
 
I watched these women's eyes light up with possibly,...

Journals are Journeys

I’ve been journaling since I was in Grade 5. It all started with a Woolworth’s unlined lockable pocket journal. I still have it. And since then, I’ve amassed dozens and dozens of journals from fancy moleskins to 50 cent Hilroy school notebooks. Each carries a journey from a piece of life.

From happiness to hurts, greatness to grief, these books, and the conversations with...

Country Drive Clarity

If there's one thing I love about living in rural Alberta, it that inevitably, you'll need to take a country drive. For me this morning, my drive came at just the time I needed it.

I was "itchy" for some clarity on my 2020 and what to "do next." I know I talked on the latest episode of the Confidence Shift Podcast about learning to "sit in the success." I did - well for about four full days,...

Sunday Brunch Love

It's Sunday, and for the last couple of weeks, I've been enjoying being present in my kitchen and with my #GustafsonTrio.

Today, I thought I'd share my Eggnog French Toast recipe.

We had it today along with maple syrup, B's sweet berry compote, icing sugar, and applewood smoked bacon.

No big, long message today, just a tiny reminder to enjoy the moment - every sight, sound, smell, taste.

Pay Attention To How You Do Something

I have this thing about being on the floor when I need to sort something creative out. Yesterday afternoon I pulled up a piece of carpet in my Hue and Style® HQ. I had meaningful work to do.

I was sorting out what I'll be teaching to my advanced mentorship clients next week to prepare for the new year. I thought I would teach the same lesson we did last year, but it doesn't seem to fit...

Give Your Meaningful Outcome Away

In Show Up Confident, I talk about finding your Meaningful Outcome. It's a more tangible, workable way to think about your purpose. For as long as I can remember, I've had a part of mine to "give confidence away." These three words have run everything I've done, offered, and given away.

In the last year or two, I wasn't sure how I wanted to give myself away to my local community charities. I...

Laugh hard. It's medicine.

Yesterday afternoon I was all set to have my afternoon siesta when my good friend from Atlanta messaged me. It wasn't long until we were on a voice call laughing until I cried. It happens almost every time we talk.

We always vow our check-in calls will be 5 minutes. They never are, and I got off the 54-minute call with a brand new outlook. I wasn't tired anymore. I didn't need my siesta, and...

Shake Your Bam Bam

 

Shake your bam bam. Do it. Because it feels good, and right now, we all need a little of that. Here's why:

This morning, I did what I do a lot. I took myself too seriously. I got up at my regular 5:40 am and to "do arms," and even though it was routine, I did something out of the routine. I reached for my liquid-gold bra top and fire-engine red cropped leggings. I should have known by that "...

The Longest New Year's Eve Ever

I feel like the entire month of December is New Year's Eve. Usually, I spend the day floating around the house with my journal and pens with a moody, broody, sentimental kind of energy, wrapping up my year in lessons and gratitude.

This year, I feel like I need all of December. This year was fast and slow, big and small, up and down, so today, December 1 at 8:48 am MST, I decided to make...
