Pulling from the archives this week as I am in Mexico photographing a Life Coaching Retreat! See you back here * live * next Saturday! xo
At the end of the school year I was on my way across town to the high school baseball banquet. I had lost 15 pounds over the previous few months, was wearing some super cute jeans (that I hadn't been able to squeeze into for the last year and a 1/2), and was having a great hair day. I was at a stop light putting on some lip gloss when I had the following thought: "I feel like a MILLION BUCKS!" !!!! And the thought that came immediately after that was "If I can feel it? I can have it!" Not gonna lie, it was a pivotal moment - one that I think I'll remember for a long time!
So I keep on keeping on, hustling in the healthiest way I can, and have started paying closer attention to the things that make me feel good. From the food I eat, to how often I move my body, to the self-care rituals that I've been putting aside because I tell myself I'm on a budget. I've decided that there are some things I'm not willing to give up, because they hold a special place in my "million bucks" core desired feeling. And what this means is that I am going to treat myself to a few key things on a regular basis!
My list of small indulgences includes:
And bizarrely, I think when I got to that place of knowing what I could let go of (like washing my car all the time!), and what was really important to me (even if it seemed trivial), the universe threw a few super fun bonuses my way! I have a girlfriend who is an RN and studying to be an aesthetician - so I've been getting some awesome services from her at a lovely discount, and I couldn't be more pleased. (If you're in the Seattle area and are interested in new-age facials plus lots of other cool stuff . . . look her up here!)
What are the things that make you feel good? Or maybe even make you feel super fantastic? Do you allow yourself to indulge regularly or just time-to-time? I am a firm believer that when I feel good, I can manifest the life I've always dreamed of - one filled with freedom, joy, magic . . . and maybe even a million bucks!
