Sunday Morning Rain is Falling

Sunday Morning Rain is Falling

My man and I have three businesses and two J.O.B.s between us. During the week we are fast-moving ships passing, fighting hard just to have a 45 minute window at the end of the day for a quick catch up. Even Saturdays are dedicated to our pursuits. We are mutually focused on these dreams of ours, and know it’s worth the dedication. 

Fast track to Freedom – A journey to loving my body

Fast track to Freedom – A journey to loving my body

Let’s start here. At this writing I’m 49 years old. I hope it doesn’t take you this long, but if it does, it’s ok. The point is to get here.

Last month, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease. It’s an autoimmune disease and in simplest terms it means that my body has been attacking itself, my thyroid to start with and now other systems.And it’s led to all kinds of crazy health issues that made zero sense until now. I wasn’t planning to write about this quite so early in the Wildflower Uprising (and so soon after diagnosis), but I feel called to share, because coming to terms with my body feels like tectonic shift stuff. And if I can come to terms with my body...well, let’s just say this is a massive mindset shift for me and I hope you can have the same breakthrough.

The 5 things you need to do to define your personal brand

The 5 things you need to do to define your personal brand

Do you have a personal brand identity? That was a trick question. You do. Everyone does. Even if you don’t realize it or think it’s important, you’ve got one. So just in case you maybe want to put some thought into it, here’s a little primer.  When I think about personal brand, I can’t help but think about my partner, Isaac. I can guarantee as I write this that he has never, ever had an active thought about his personal brand. But he has one, and a strong one at that. 

Can we stop calling it anti-aging? Five steps to live your best life right now.

Anti-aging. That term is everywhere and it freaks me the hell out. Does that mean that we don’t want to age? And unless you are a vampire doesn’t that mean you’re DEAD?

I get it that we live in a youth-obsessed culture, and when I was young I didn’t think twice about it. (But how about the latest trend where young people are dying their hair gray? Hooray and thank you for normalizing gray hair!) But when I hear the term (like, everywhere, all the time) I feel like it smacks of desperation and denial.

I was. For years.
