I am back from a much needed (and well-deserved) hiatus from social media, work and more. I don’t think we realize how much time is spent doing mindless things (aka scrolling on Instagram for hours…) and how much time is dedicated to our phones, gadgets, gizmos, etc. It’s a lot and when you’re running your own biz, you really spend more time on these things because I know if I didn’t I would feel I wasn’t making any progress. But after a week off, one thing rang true.
Hey hey boo! Did you know that you have the power to manifest the life of the wildest dreams? Yes! I said. YOU CAN! It is absolutely possible for you to co-create with the Universe your most authentic, powerful and truest vision for your life. It really all starts with setting clear and specific intentions. But how do you make it all happen? How can you manifest your intentions right here, right now? It is more simple than you think and it actually gives you so much power. I mean, how amazing is that?!
“Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.” ― Garth Stein
This quote really speaks to me as I think about all the things I wish to make happen and manifest in 2015. We are really in control of fates, the captains of our souls. We have the amazing power to become happier, healthier, abundant, write a book, paint a masterpiece, go to school, and more. We just don’t realize this awesome opportunity at times. We need a little shove. A little coaxing if you will.
What intentions will you manifest this year? How will you make sh*t happen and really give yourself the push to break through your comfort zone and grow? 2015 is your year. Your blank slate. Grab that paint brush and create your masterpiece.

“Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.” ― Anthon St. Maarten
One thing that is absolutely amazing to me is how hard it is to relinquish our control over life. We have this compulsive desire to hang on to each detail, the results of our labors and even hold on for dear life to our plans.
What we don’t realize is that by letting the reins go even slightly makes way for immense opportunities for growth AND opens up the door for your life’s purpose and passion.
My friend and certified yoga teacher Kathy sat down to chat about this with me in my latest vlog.
“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.” ― Masaru Emoto,
As I start to really focus on growing in my passion for cooking, healing and beyond I am realizing how hard it can be. Legit, we have to go through some sh*t and deal with haters and that sucks! But I am realizing that when we really want something or have a desire to fulfill our wildest dreams we HAVE to come across resistance or as I like to call it: murky water. To achieve success or live a thriving life, we may need a little nudge or a little resistance to make sure we really are all about our desires. I mean, after all the universe gives us room to grow and what is growth without a little game of tug-of-war. This test is ultimately essential. It checks to see if we are ready to burst forth and through the muddy waters and blossom as beautiful lotuses.
