At times I heard Utah wasn’t a pretty place. I’m from Portland, OR and it is beautiful here and so is Utah.
It’s a different kind of beauty. I was drawn by the fields & desert that go on for miles with the majestic snow-capped mountains in the distance.
Experiencing things and places in person can give us a different perspective or view.
Life events can turn out different then the stories we sometimes tell ourselves.
Here’s a great article on EFT and staying in the positive when others around us aren’t.
This was a great life purpose information. I took my time and answered the questions and boom it really laser focused my purpose and gave me some a great information about talking about it.

It’s almost time to start a 2019 joy jar. If you had a joy, gratitude or other jar take time to look at some you put in and read them. For those that haven’t done this:

In your hustle and bustle of the Holiday’s Stop and take a few deep breaths in and out and enjoy this pause from the hustle and the bustle.
What do you want to focus on in 2019, do you want to:
I want my business, healthier choices and self-care to continue to grow.
Look at an issue you haven’t released the feelings from or possibly forgave. Let’s unpack this a bit:
When time has passed sometimes we can identify new things and find compassion. This can release the emotional charge so it can be released.
Take some time to write down a few issues or people you need to release some feelings and forgive. I encourage you to start releasing it. Here are a few ideas:
It’s important to find ways to let go of the feelings holding you back from forgiveness that works for you.

“It’s a problem” to “It’s an Opportunity”

Six years later I still have the phrase up for me to see. When I feel nervous I can tap and say it out loud or in my head. It still feels calming.

When we are open with others it can help them and yourself in times of need.
There are many things to take care of when you get married. We needed to do the banking business and decided to do it on a Saturday. There was so many other things needing done that we forgot to do it. This reminded me I need to put important things on the calendar or it could get missed.
Let’s remember to use our tools. It makes life easier.
