Happy New Year!

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Happy New Year LIB Family! It is hard to believe that 2015 has come to a close and 2016 is here. As I reflect on the past year, I can say with complete honesty the year was bitter sweet. Bitter sweet in the sense that I experienced wonderful blessings in key areas of my life but encountered challenges in other areas, which caused some heartache and disappointment. It was in 2015, I graduated from the big girl panties and put on bloomers! Seriously, it was a year of tremendous gratitude and moments of tears. I made some decisions which caused me to grow both personally and professionally. As I leave 2015 behind, and move into 2016, I am conscious of the present moment, appreciating it, and owning who I am and living from a place of surrender, knowing that it all begins and ends with God. As the creator of what I believe to be an avenue to touch and inspire women around the world by sharing and expressing life’s trials, triumphs, and encouraging tidbits is what makes LIB so special. There are times when the rawness and realness of someone else’s journey can hit a core spot in someone’s heart, and resonate in another soul and move them. As we enter 2016, LIB will continue to inspire you with stories by women who value themselves and who are truly beautiful spiritual beings living life from a place of authenticity. We love you so much! Many, many, blessings to you in 2016!

Keep It Real With Yourself

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

LIB is super excited to share one of the projects we are working on which involves inspirational affirmations for the woman who simply wants to just be! As we roll these out each month, feel free to share your favorite affirmations or quotes and who knows it may be featured in the next newsletter!

Keep It Real With Yourself

Have you ever found yourself questioning the plan and purpose of your life? You may find yourself asking this question, when life throws you a curveball or if you feel like no matter how persistent you, stumbling blocks get in the way, or something happens that completely takes you off course. You may wonder is God saying No? Not now? Or is it a sign you should give up and settle for the status quo? No doubt, I think we have all been there. It’s during these moments where you should stop and shift your focus to love and take an honest assessment of where you are in your thoughts, actions, and life at the moment. For example, What is the true reason why you want to have your own successful business? Is it because you truly want to be your own “Boss”, or do you want to create a legacy and utilize your gifts and talents to serve the world your way? Whatever reason it is, be honest with your intentions and come from an internal place of love and truth. Be real and honest with yourself. In the meantime, if that “something” continually calls your name. Answer the call, openly, honestly and with love. The doors may not open when you want them too, but eventually the light will shine, doors will open, and things will take off for you! Keep moving forward and embracing the process and journey.

“Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward in the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage, and confidence” Og Mandino”

The Power of Community: elements

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Where do I begin to share the power of community? The power of community involves people coming together to encourage, support, and lift up one another. Growing up, I was somewhat shy, enjoyed singing, writing, and I enjoyed playing basketball. As I got into my teenage years, the idea of sweating did not appeal to me, so I pretty much hung up the idea of any type of physical activity. At any rate, it was not until I had my second child that I decided I better hit the gym to 1) Decrease my chances of getting post-partum depression and 2) lose the baby fat. Plus, I wanted to feel better about myself. It was around this time, I joined then “Womenfit”, now elements, that I absolutely fell in love with the club, members, and overall environment. There is nothing more powerful, inspiring, and uplifting, than being around other women who share a common goal, which is improving their overall well-being in body and spirit. Months after joining the club, and after giving birth to my daughter,  going through a separation and divorce. This was by far the most challenging time in my life, but I got through it. It was during this time, I witnessed first-hand the power of community, and having a strong support network. I remember faithfully going to the club and working out, and being completely encouraged and supported by many of the members and instructors at the club. Two close instructors and friends, offered encouraging words and reassurances that things will get better, which they did.  Fast forward to 2012, the power of community is still at work in this place and it is absolutely amazing. I cannot express enough how much I value and appreciate the women of elements. Lastly, did i mention the club is women only? That should tell you something 🙂 We ROCK!   

 

A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living” Rudolf Steiner

Happy Valentine’s Day

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Happy Valentine’s Day! It is on days like this, I am often reminded of how very sweet and precious love is. Now, in researching the origin of Valentine’s day and how it all came about…initially Valentine’s day did not originate as a celebration of love and romanticism. Nevertheless, this Valentine’s day is recognized by many of us, as a way to show our loved ones how much we love and appreciate them. Valentine’s day is a time to not only show our loved ones, how much we love and appreciate them, but an opportunity to soak in all of the love and affection that is in the air. People seem a little sweeter, air a little lighter, and more joyful. There is something about “love” that has an amazing power and energy that resonates in each and every one of us. Love is light, joy, peace, and happiness all rolled up into one and delivered from one being to another. Love exudes gentleness, patience, and is filled with all the intangible nutrients and vitamins one could ever need and one could ever want.  When we fill ourselves with the power of love, and operate in love and in truth, there is no stopping you and if everyone operated on the same wavelength with one intention, which is to love oneself and love for others, the world would heal much quicker and we would be lifted much, much higher. Now, I say this to challenge to make every day, a celebration of love.  

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthian 13 4-7
