You have what it takes

Happy 2017 everyone! 2016 was a great year.

A challenging year, but a great one.

I won't bore you with the gruesome details, but a couple of the highlights are....

  • Ran my first Boston Marathon
  • Got certified as a Holistic Health Coach and Yoga Teacher
  • Started a volunteer yoga program at Santa Maria Hostel in Houston
  • Worked with trend-setting clients ;) You know who you are!
  • Fell in love <3
  • Taught my first cooking class... and then my second! *Many more to come!
  • Spent time with my family
  • Hosted my first workshop with High School Girls! *Also more to come!
  • Ate amazing food
  • And traveled a bunch within the US.

Overall, I look back and say wow.

*Actually, I say DAMN (pronounced DAY-UM), but wow sounds more zen or something. 

Looking into 2017, I feel even more prepared to take on one of my biggest challenges to date: starting a business.

"People do it all the time. It's really not a big deal."

How many times have you said this to yourself about something that you are up to?

This type of talk, I have found, seriously eats at my motivation.

I think...

Well, if I am having a hard time now, and people do it all the time, then I should be doing it right now! It should be easier. Maybe this means I am not meant for this. I should stop.


With 2017 coming up, I set goals that are really taking me outside of my comfort zone. If you care to take a peek, I am willing to share :)

One thing that could seriously derail all of these goals is if I allow my brain to get carried away with this comparison and negative self talk.

If you are trying to lose weight, run your first half, repair your relationship, find a new career, or just be 10% happier, I want you to own that it is a big deal.

And say to yourself...

I have what it takes.

This is my 2017 mantra and I hope that you will adopt it with me.

Because the only way for it to be true is if you say it and believe it.
