Listen while you work

A friend of mine recently turned me on to The Hay House, and boy was I was surprised to find that I was actually familiar with quite a few of their authors and contributors!

So for the past couple of weeks I’ve been running through and listening to all of these amazing motivational speakers who talked at the World Summit. I have yet to go through all 100 talks, but so far a few of my favorites are:

Gabby Bernstein! I actually have 2 of her books that have been sitting on my night stand for months now. I have yet to fully commit to them since they involve “homework”. I think I’m going to put together a small support group to go through them together with me.  And wouldn’t you know it I just recently got a inbox reminder message for this event! I think it might be the universe reaching out to me to tell me to do this!

Marianne Williamson – I was introduced to her through Gabby and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed her talk. I now have a few of her books on order at my local library and sitting in my amazon basket :)

Kris Carr! Love this girl! She has such an incredibly inspiring story and speaks my language.I’m now determined to try out her green juice and green smoothie!! And I have to say that I’m total a junk food junkie and sugar addict. Have been since I was little. Nutrition is the one area in my life that I am slowly starting to learn about and change for the better.

Sonia Choquette- I can’t believe I have only just heard of her. I totally vibed with this lady! I love philosophy of using your 6th sense and intuition to guide you. My goodness I remember each and every time I haven’t followed my intution and boy was I sorry. Sonia’s talk really resonated with me.

Noah St. John - He spoke about affirmations (or as he call them Afformations) But it was much more than that. It was about turning your affirmation in to a a positive charged question? Fooling your mind to stop resisting and start actually believing what you’re saying. All I can say is wow! Why haven’t I tried this before? You can bet I’ll be forming some afformations questions of my own!

Summer Lovin…

Summer has offically begun over here!!! We have new schedules with an earlier start time. 6:30am! We have to be at the bustop by 8:10 for Ava Blu’s camp. (30 minutes earlier can make a big difference in the morning)

And today I just started trying to build a new habit of hiking in the morning for an hour. It’s item No. 12 on my 40×40 list and I’m glad to start trying to cross some of these off. The trail that I picked to start off with is close by so I’m hoping this will be an easy one to keep!

We’re all still working on getting settled into our new morning routine. But I can say I’m definitely loving the idea of a reboot and a fun start to the summer. Longer, warmer days TOTALLY ROCK!! 

The Sweet Life

Oh my gosh I’ve been meaning to post this for a few weeks now. Here are some of the highlights from last months Sweet Spot Event in NYC!

Before the party started- Megan and I posing behind the sweet treat bags that we made up for each of our guests.













And of course we had to serve mini cupcakes!~

I have to admit I was a little bit nervous before the event. I mean we were breaking new ground trying something new. But it was a fantastic event and we had an amazing turn out.

I wish I would have thought to take more pictures, but we were both so busy talking and having a good time that we just simply forgot.

We did however manage to take at least one group shot at the very end of the evening with all the folks that stuck it out till the end. :)

Thinking outside of the box for this event was totally well worth it! We’ll definitely be hosting The Sweet Spot again next year!!!

On my nightstand


 I find these type of books fascinating. I totally love Malcolm Gladwell books and I’ve been gobbling this one up! I totally dig reading out the psychology and curious phenomena about why we do and behave they way we do. I find it incredibly insightful.

So far one of my favorite passages is where Adam write about this visual problem. I bet my creative peeps will be able to easily figure it out. You just need to think outside of the box!!
