Emotional Intelligence

I was purging + rummaging through old photos yesterday and found this. My son was just born and my then photographer husband requested an impromptu pose to test a new innovative way to photograph people in the studio: digital! It was 1995 and it was a brand new invention + technology at the time where film was still being used in the industry. ie. you couldn’t see the photograph you’d just taken. I remember thinking that it was an amazing invention that was finally in the consumers hands! And the coincidence was I was also reinventing myself as the GIRL who I knew I was at the time vs the WOMAN I knew I had to be in order to be the mom I wanted to be for this beautiful boy. It was a pivotal time in my life that help me to gather strength for my next phase… being a single mama of...

Not happy with how life is showing up? What is it for you? Your career? A relationship? Your physical or emotional health? Your finances? A greater sense of fulfillment? Only YOU can change it, gorgeous. Quit waiting for someone to rescue you or for some other event to happen before you think you can affect change. ‘Cuz that’s just fear of the unknown + an excuse that disempowers you into believing you need something outside of yourself to have what you want.

Instead of pushing through, as I sometimes do, I allowed myself to be completely present to surrendering to the swirling emotions and simply allow them to move through me. I’ve had to release the urgency and control around work + this launch + forcing the speed of this healing process. And instead, allow myself to sit with the devastation that occurred without guilt, without over-thinking, without self-judgement, and instead...

I’m realizing more and more how imperative it is to protect our energy. This isn’t a news flash for me but I always thought I could get away with being a bit lazy - thinking I was good at bouncing the negative + not taking it on. As it turns out I’m not special. Lol. We are all the same in that we need to have the awareness of our own energy barometer + learn the tools to create + maintain it on a daily. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For instance, before I sit down to do my daily brand visioning, I take 10 minutes to meditate and do some creative journalling. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Cuz let’s face it people, with the levels of responsibility that we have + all balls we juggle on a daily as entrepreneurs...
