Happy Friday my dear!
I hope your week has been as wonderful as mine! Did you hear we reached our Kickstarter goal on day 6?! THANK YOU to everyone who's contributed. You can still be a part of the Kickstarter fun and cash in on the fun rewards, all additional funds raised are going towards the marketing of the podcast which is the part that will help determine it's success.
Here are this week's five things!
1) I've been enjoying this Spotify Playlist of mine Cypress Girl Power.
2) You know I've been loving the Lively Show Podcast, last week she had a podcast on the Scientific reason crystals work in our lives. If you Crystals and wonder if it's just woo woo, this is a good one to check out.
3) If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you might know I got to experience the float tank at Sonder Mind and Body this week (go try it out if you're in Greensboro). They served me a mind-blowing Turmeric Latte and you should go there and have one, but in case you're not in Greensboro, I thought you might want the recipe so I looked one up for you.
4) I found this meditation on the insight timer very very helpful. My good friend Bonnie sent it to me, the way the speaker talks bothered me at first, but the content of the message soon overrode how she was speaking. It's The Law of Attraction and Abundance
5) Quote, I'm pondering: "What you think you become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create. -Buddha
On a side note, You all might know how much I love Greensboro Pure Barre? They are so great, they wanted me to be able to share Pure Barre with all of you! Here's a special code for all Yoke and Abundance readers to take 15% off any package use the code YOKE15 at Check out. That's my little happy gift to you today.
“When we write about ourselves in the third person, it fools our brain into believing it a bit more. This is called cognitive distance, and it’s a really effective tool when we’re trying to change our thinking or patterns of behavior. The #1 thing I always write is “Lara loves herself.” It sounds so simple, but …”
“Everything you're dreaming, do it!!!”
“Slow down, listen to the wisdom of your heart. When making a decision, play it forward and make the best decision with the best information you have, listen to wise counsel. Be open to different ways of thinking, different people, change is good. Have courage, compassion & commitment.”
Clearly starting this company is risky…very risky…but a life without risks is no life at all. Many things that I have done in my life have taken a great deal of courage. I am glad that I am still willing to risk, and that I have never lost that ability (no matter how scared I am inside of failure…and I am!).
What would your life look like if you could feel more connected to your purpose? What would your life look like if you felt more connected to what gives life meaning for you?
Specially designed coaching with me uses creativity, journaling, worksheets, and strategic questions and reflections to help you identify exactly what you’re dissatisfied with, it will teach you how to identify and strengthen what’s most important to you, and it will help you build the road map from where you are to your biggest dreams and your most impactful life of purpose
“Knowing my children are watching me. I always tell them that can’t is a bad word and once you say it your brain shuts down. This means I can’t say can’t.”
Like a fantastic glass of wine with a delicious meal, a year ahead spread pairs perfectly with a Power Hour coaching session. Looking at a year ahead spread during a power hour gives you a different lens to talk about where you are and where you want to be. It’s a powerful game changer.
“there is no other way to truly get what you want in life than to earn it. I would tell myself that I am good enough just the way I am, I don’t have to be anyone or anything else in order to matter.”
“It is always important to remember why you are doing the work you are doing.
The same is true in life: It is KEY to identify what you want before you begin taking steps to get there.”
“Balance is a good thing, and harder to achieve than it seems like it should be! Be disciplined and do your best, but not to the point of isolating yourself from the world or people around you. In the end, it’s your experiences and the people you meet that will impact you more…”
