Getting ready to start this 30 day Intensive to Enrich Your Life and Upgrade your Mindset. This will be one of my tasks to start the New Year on the right foot and I am so excited!  Haleh Gianni is that coach I came across while searching for direction I mentioned a couple of blogs ago. Check out her website here: 505 Living.  Haleh has a very unique approach to life coaching in the sense that she helps you discover your true self and guides you through self discovery in a very approachable and easy way.  Showing you that what makes YOU unique is beautiful and perfect the way it is. After taking the ULT Technology assessment, she goes over the results with you and basically hands you a manual for your life, detailing what makes you unique, what drives you and what drains you and guides you to a deeper understanding of self.  In my opinion EVERYONE should take this test. It certainly made a huge difference in my life.

I am excited about taking this 30 day mindset shift exercise (I bought the book on her website) I can't wait to report my progress!

There is a list of items needed to prepare for this 30-day Intensive:

  • Lavender and chamomile body wash
  • A note book
  • A scented candle
  • Pure lavender essential oil
  • A well stocked fridge with healthy foods  One Green Planet
Can't wait to get started January 1st!

One of my favorite traditions for the New Year is going back through the pages of my planner and reflecting on the life events I managed to capture.  Many times I feel so surprised and blessed to look back at all the milestones and accomplishments I experienced during the year.  Being a business owner it is so helpful to look at my calendar of events and track where I was, what I did, what I paid, what I gave away etc. This year I bought myself this Kate Spade Calendar for home. I usually buy the one at the Origami Owl convention which I decorate and carry with me at Jewelry Bars, but this one is an oversized calendar perfect for my home office.  One of the things I really focused on last year was changing and working on my mindset. So I added many words of inspiration I ran across and affirmations to help me along the way. It is so incredible the amount of growth and insight I have come across just by asking and being more receptive.  I am so excited for the New Year and looking forward to many more milestones, achievements and breakthroughs in personal development.  I will be more diligent in recording even the most minute of events, dates and figures and look forward to doing my year in review next year!

Throughout my recent life journey (I want to say the last three four years), I have come to learn so many valuable lessons. I’ve always had this deep desire to achieve, to accomplish to reach a certain level of success and happiness in life and I struggled so much with depression and anxiety because things didn’t seem to go my way or the way I had hoped or planned. I was bogged down with negative thoughts and feelings for many years, yet deep down inside I knew there was a better way. I could not understand why I could not be happy. I have everything I ever need and more, yet I felt a void. So I started asking God to help transform my thoughts. To find joy in everyday life, and so this is how this blog came to be.  I started searching for answers, soul searching and looking for a life coach (which I found- I’ll tell you more about her).  I started enrolling in personal development seminars and started reading self-help books.  One thing lead to another in the perfection of my path and little by little I have learned that it all happens for a reason for the greater good.  It takes time and willingness to learn and be open to receive.

I will be blogging more about this as I gather my thoughts and kind of chronicle the steps and the doors that have opened and closed.  But for now I can tell you that I am focusing on letting go and letting God more than ever.  I have laid a lot of ground work, and effort along the way but sometimes the best thing to do is to let go and accept the perfection of the now.

How many times in life do we get the opportunity to be part of a brand new company?  
Once in a lifetime if any at all?   Try two times in your life!!!  

Wow!  I am extremely excited to be able to be one of those willing hearts that gets the opportunity to be part of history for a second time.

When I started with Origami Owl they were just a year old and I have felt privileged to be one of their founding designers from the start. As a matter of fact this past February I celebrated my 4th year anniversary and I could not be happier and full of hope for the future.

This last January I had the privilege to attend L.E.A.D. a leadership summit in Coronado California and it was incredible!  We got to experience first hand the knowledge and expertise from our founders and the top leaders in the company.  We got to experience first hand the Spring product reveal, changes to our enhanced career plan and just a lot of inspiration, camaraderie among our fellow designers.

One of the highlights of this leadership summit was the announcement of the launch of Willing Beauty an Origami Owl family of brands!   Willing Beauty was born out of the synergy of four willing hearts - Our Origami Owl founders and original mother/daughter team Chrissy and Bella and the founders of Willa skincare- Christy and Willa.  How awesome is that?  These power women have come together to create a revolutionary brand of skin care that is going to be a major game changer!

The company is set to launch in April 2017 and there is a waiting list to become a beauty advisor as of now - I jumped right at the opportunity even though I'll be learning more as I go as I did when I joined Origami Owl. There is something about the new and the innovative that excites me and I am so thankful and blessed lighting struck twice in my lifetime!  I will be posting more information as I go but I can sense that the future is so bright!

Finding-answer-prayers - Live Sparkly

How do you live sparkly?

It's all in the details is a way of life for me... 
If you know my story you know that I truly believe that it's the small details in life that add up to a whole lot of wonderful.

I try to never compromise adding a little extra into everything I do.  My life has evolved tremendously over the years but at the core I have always paid attention to details. The more I experience life and I grow I realize that at the end of the day those little details become the big things and the memorable things you keep close to your heart.

Living sparkly to me is just that - taking the time and caring about the way we live every day. Showing your light everyday from the smallest interactions to the big things you are trying to accomplish.  The mere fact that the smallest gesture like a genuine smile can turn someone's day around for the better inspires and motivates me to do it every chance I get. You just never know who needs that smile at that precise moment.  I think living sparkly is also a way of life.  We have the choice to choose how we will face the day and if we are willing to make a positive difference in this world and in the lives of others.  I welcome you to read my live sparkly story by clicking on the link above.

I am so happy I have found a way to empower, motivate, inspire and make a difference in the lives of others through Origami Owl and that my prayers have been answered in the most unexpected ways.

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.”
