Rest and being lazy are not synonyms - thats a lesson that took me a lifetime to learn. Rest is an important part of self care and is important to your mental as well as physical health. It's not a bad word... And you think it is, I invite you to think of rest differently. Love Gigi
Let me ask you this; do you have 3 to 5 minutes in your day to invest in yourself? If not why not? Do you believe you are worth a small investment of time? Today I'm talking about what we consume and how it impacts us with a call to be mindful of what we are consuming. Is what we are consuming aligned with our vision and our purpose? If not...what are you going to do about it?
I have recently been introduced to the concept of Resistance as it is shared by Steven Pressfield in the book The War of Art, he writes: "we can use it as a compass. We can navigate by resistance, letting it guide us to what is calling or action that we must follow before all others". Today, on the blue Monday I feel resistance but I am using this energy as my guidance to talk about the link between self-care and money management. Sent and discussed always with love.
The planner in me is at a loss. My plan and vision has become clouded and has resulted in a feeling of discomfort. I now understand "Let go and let God", the plan is bigger than I can even conceive so it is time to let the Universe take the wheel. The only question now is how?

Lets talk about negative Nelly. I have a few in my circles, maybe you do too. Negative Nelly is a person is that person who has a complaint or a negative interjection for most things. Sometimes its not that easy to distance ourselves from her. So lets instead talk about a really cool and empowering tool that has worked for me to come out of these interactions feeling less drained, more in control and with more love. Today’s podcast is all about Maitri and how I’ve interpreted to be a positive way for dealing with the Negative Nellys in our lives.
“What is the value or the “win” of this comparison”? We all do it - we all compare ourselves to others. When the comparisons are accompanied with follow up thoughts of “being better than” and when these feelings do not that sit well with you, it means it is the perfect time to introduce a new way to look at comparison… with a winning lens. On this weekly podcast, I’m sharing with you some real life examples of comparisons that did not serve me and how I was able to use my mantra to guide me to the light. Awareness was the catalyst for behavior changes and commitment and repetition are tools to help us modify our behavior for good. Enjoy the listen!
