Love this from #onlylovetoday! I did pretty well today but tomorrow I’m going to try harder! 💛 “Vow to Breathe:
I don’t want to feel like I am always running behind.
I don’t want to feel like I will never catch up.
I don’t want to multi-task the day away.
I don’t want to brush past the people I love.
I don’t want to feel depleted and overwhelmed.
I don’t want to fill every space of my day with “stuff.” I want to say yes to listening and laughter.
I want remember what my heart loves to do and do it.
I want to close my eyes in gratitude.
I want to open them in wonder.
I want to smile for no reason.
Spot a cool cloud.
Say, “Take your time,” and mean it.
I want to give a good kiss.
Leave a surprise note.
Do absolutely nothing and not feel guilty about it.
I want to
While I still can.
I want to fill the spaces of my life with love
Love the diffuser at bedtime! A few of my favorite oils to begin a relaxing night! My favorite in the bedroom is the lavender, cedarwood & orange and the dream catcher & orange. The tranquil literally knocks me out & I roll it on the bottoms of my feet👣
And white angelica is expected to come back in stock soon...
Can’t wait! This is one I’m dying to try!
✨Day 1 of cleanse!
✨I’m holding myself accountable by posting to this page and perhaps it may inspire some of you to look at areas in your life that you’d like to “clean up” this week! Pick an area you’d like to improve and push the needle a little each day!
✨Day one is done and in the books! Working to stay focused on why I wanted to do this cleanse and what’s on the other side of it! But, DAMN, this is no joke!! .
✨Today’s capture is of a Cherry Berry Beet Smoothie for lunch! .
✨Share an area of your life that you’re focusing on improving this week and drop it in the comments below 👇🏼
Today has been a challenge .. not because of my little Earth but because of the bureaucratic world. As a non American the last year in the US has been in some ways a struggle. My work and travel permit, after many clerical errors ran out a few weeks before Earth was born - as did my driving license which I wasn't able to renew until I had my updated and permanent permits. Of course the meeting to get these was set for the day Earth was born ( thank you fate - I knew it before it happened) and I still haven't been able to drive - as it happened we were thankfully given a new meeting date of today. We got up after not many hours of sleep - Earth was tired, I was tired, Dad was tired, we drove for over an hour to get to the meeting, Earth had three poo explosions in the meeting and of course I had to change and feed her in front of the immigration officer ( who wasn't very impressed ) she wouldn't stop crying and hated it - who wouldn't. We got to the very end of the meeting - all was set for me to walk away with new cards when the officer looked at his computer and realized that because the whole process had taken so long now they needed to redo my background checks (yet another clerical error) and I need to wait another two-ish weeks to receive it. My angel mother leaves tomorrow who's graciously been chauffeuring Earth and I around (blessing) so we have new obstacles to face in the coming weeks with no driving license and no grandma. Of course, I was dejected - felt I was fighting a loosing battle but then I went to my mama circle and felt I could take a breath. I put things into context - Earth is happy and healthy, I am happy and healthy, my husband is happy and healthy. Perhaps this is a new opportunity - to face the coming weeks in even more stillness, even more mediation - a time for peace - just me and Earth alone. These coming weeks will be for quiet hours - and loud hours if we feel - and I can rest knowing all is coming. 🙏
Crazy Mondays will get ya! 😳
If you’re feeling scattered or all over the place, maybe a little out of control or feeling like things are out of control just say these 3 words:
I am grounded.
I also made a FREE less than 6 minute Grounding Meditation just for you! It’s my favorite when I’m feeling this way, especially when I’m feeling so crazy that I can’t even imagine taking 5 mins out of my day to meditate of all things!
(Psst.. that’s when we need it most!)
Grab yours via link in bio, take a deep breath and enjoy!
(Good for everyone, newbies included!😍🙏🏼😉).
When you are born with the Sun in Scorpio, I believe you are blessed and cursed. 🦂
A scorpio is a complex creature, deeper than is comprehensible. *Gemini's I feel you rolling your eyes but you know it's true*
It is something that we hold with great pride, like a badge of honor. We have our own means of survival, others could not imagine. We live in darkness , but we effortlessly glow in the absence of of light. 🦂
Our Resilience is unmatched: death and rebirth cycles our spirits constantly. We soar in our victories, so high that not unlike Icarus we catch flame, we suffer and burn. Seemingly destroyed, We ascend from our ashes , and begin again with new strength.
Entering Scorpio season feels like crawling out of a cave, at night. The darkness is holy, the light that we emit is sacred. Curious about the glow, we attract many others in this time. We feel safe now, stronger than ever in our element. we know we have armor, we know we can clutch tightly, we know we can sting--if we need to. We might flex a little, keeping you right where we want you. But now we are radiating, soaring, and we are protected. We are out to manifest our desires and to devour you whole if you're lucky. 🦂
b e d t i m e 🌙 r i t u a l s // Neroli on the lips and up the spine to relax and ease anxious feelings + lavender on the bottoms of my feet to help drift into sleep. I have been using lavender for so long while going to bed that now my brain has formed a connection between the scent and falling asleep. Mommas - this habit forming works great for kiddos, too! #doterra#doterralove#naturalliving
"what's the next right move?"
ask your heart. then take that step. then take the next right step
often we don't know where the steps are leading - or if anything is coming from the seeds we're planting or the direction we're moving. sometimes we're exhausted and don't want move forward. that's okay. take time to rest. eventually you'll know when it's time to make the next right step again
then all of the sudden, BOOM, we see it. we see where it was all leading us, and not a moment too soon or too late
Because even when it seemed like nothing was happening, it always was
At yoga yesterday I finally got a transition between an arm balance I've been working on for a year. Even when I thought it would never happen, all of the sudden it just DID. The cumulation of my effort was happening, even when I didn't realize it and even when I thought there was no chance
I saw a comment today about me on @bachcan getting annoyed about me talking about how smart I was. YES, it gets edited, but YES it came out of my mouth. The real hero is someone who commented back "I know Catie IRL and she's actually super genuine and spiritual and has the most positive vibes." I had to laugh because ITS ALL HAPPENING even when you don't think it is. The conversation was happening and I didn't know it, and someone anonymous was sharing love and even when I wasn't aware. It was all just happening, even when I didn't know it was
Trust the process. Trust what's happening. Trust where you are. Trust it's all happening even when it doesn't seem like it
and then keep coming back and asking yourself "what's the next right move?"
I started my fitness journey, because I was tired of feeling like crap, & not liking what I seen in the mirror. 🦄
. I wanted to have more Energy, and be able to do things with my kids. .
. Living a healthy lifestyle is not easy but it's Dam Worth it. My motivation changes every day. Starting this journey has brought so much happiness back in to my life. Not alone am I taking care of my body, but also my mind & soul.
. It's taught me to take care of myself first, so I can better take care of those around me. I no longer suffer from social anxiety or major depression. It's given me life back & a passion I love. #passion#purpose#livefullyalive#shinebright
