O.M.G. Gotta Get Some Ghee

My solidified delicious ghee

The last day or so I find myself really focused on being focused, getting clear and staying on my path. I sometimes struggle and think that maybe I’m not cut out to run my own business, or caught up in the “what if” mindset. I’m new at this and I am always learning how to improve but sometimes that ego and that mind chatter begins. And I’m like listen b*tch, it’s time for you to shut up so I can focus. No more bs, let’s show up, do the work and everything will be okay. But there are moments when I just don’t want to do a damn thing and I wonder if I should go back to working a corporate job because that’s what everyone else seems to be doing, because that seems to be much easier than trying to figure this out myself.

Quite the struggle, ain’t it?

I am Officially A Published Author

Hello my amazing friends! I am ridiculously excited to share this news with all of you. I can barely keep my feet on the ground. I am…wait for it…officially a published author. Just a few days ago my very first (but certainly not last) cookbook, Yogi Eats: A Delicious Journey to Nourishing Your Soul, was published on Amazon. It is absolutely unreal yet at the same time insanely real because of how easily this idea came to me. It’s incredible how once you let go of the expectation of how things are supposed to show up in your life, how they actually show up and how fantastic they are for your life’s true purpose.

Take Care of Your Self

When your life’s passion and calling is all about healing, it can be a hard thing to remember and make time for taking care of yourself. Trust me, I’ve done this. I do this. I constantly have to relearn how to put myself back on my own priority list. It’s really sad. I forget that without a nourished, well taken care of me, there is no healer version of me. I have to take care of numero uno before I can spread love through food and beyond.

You are not affective when you’re running on fumes. Stop running yourself ragged. Do at least one thing a week that makes you feel uplifted and replenished. For me, it’s taking time to just check in. What am I craving? Do I need a yoga class, a massage, to not cook tonight so I can get a break? Whatever it is, I FORCE myself to do it. Even if I try to resist, I do it. I need it. I am a priority. And you are too.

Trusting the process

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.

Bursting Through the Murkiness

“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.
