Get Clean in 2018!

New Year, New You, Boo!


The beautiful thing about being human is we get to begin again and again. I have restarted and recreated so many times in my life it’s hard to count. It’s even interesting to me how many times I have declared one thing and the very next year I had an opposite declaration.

The Decades

I told my friend, Laura, that at the turn of every decade it seems there is a huge shift in my vision. When I was at the end of my twenties I faced questions like: is this the summation of my life? Is this it? Am I doing what I am supposed to be doing? Is this where things stabilize? There was a lot of anxiety around this time in my life and like all things it passed. However, not until I recognized and accepted that I am enough just as I am. And, that was a hard one as I faced, should I be more or doing more?

My thirties were about proving myself. I put my dreams aside so my husband could actualize his dreams. I felt suppressed and at the same time his hard work provided us security. And since that’s the number 1 thing I need from a partner, that worked for me for awhile. That is until my desires started bubbling up as I headed toward my forties.

Here I am at 41 and the flood gates are opening. I’ve been trying to create a job for myself for almost 2 decades. It’s nearly impossible for me to have a job outside of our industry and in our company. It’s my husband’s baby and he has earned my staying out of it.

Find What You Love and Make a Career Out of It

I recall a lady when I worked as a bartender at Café Vermilionville telling me, “find what you would do for free and make a career out of it.” At the time, it sounded like a long way away. Especially since I was in college studying for a degree that I had no passion for. You might ask, then why did you take on an area of study you had no passion? That’s simple. My mom said I was good at it. And I was good at it but Interior Design wasn’t where my heartstrings were pulled.

My heartstrings are set on fire in helping others maximize their potential in health and wellness. I firmly believe we have a choice in how we treat our bodies in reguard to nutrition, exercise and all things health and wellness. I have witnessed people heal themselves with their food and exercise choices and heck, I healed myself. No medicines just good clean living. Lives transformed by human will. That’s magical.


Do you know what else is magical? I am teaming up with Oui Power Yoga to bring you a healthy living plan to kick off 2018. I have been asked:

  • What do I eat?

  • What are my exercise choices?

  • How do I make it look easy?

  • How do I have the time?
