Body Goodness: Things are changing for the better with my hormones and body. I can feel it. Super empowering. I am in the completion phase of my cycle and moving into the analysis next week. I am noticing a difference in my thought patterns and emotions as each phase shifts. It’s fascinating. I am still a newbie at this but I can see how much better it is to flow with our feminine cycle instead of against it.

Mind/Heart/Spirit Goodness: Following my bliss. This has been my intention and passion for the last 18 years. I’ve had such a clear vision of how I want to live  and very little tolerance for not following my heart and passions. I am getting to the next phase of my journey and tuning into what I really want. Digging deep to see what my current desires are and asking how I can do it. Sometimes I make excuses, especially with my responsibilities of motherhood. But, there is always a way to live our purpose and passion. We just have to get creative and be willing to ask for help and have patience.

Gratitude & Appreciation: I am grateful for the fun day at the creek with my Momma friend and her son. I am grateful for my awesome chat with hubby. It’s super helpful to be married to a super powerful masculine guy!:) I am grateful for the way he thinks and I am grateful for the way I think. I am grateful for our friends awesome online store: Raw Food World and the sweet hook up they give us! I am grateful for another gorgeous summer day! #thankyou
