Listen to the podcast: A Joy To Be Me!

PODCAST: Are you on the top of your 'to-do' list?

In this episode, I'm giving a pep talk if you will about how to shift from focusing so much of your energy on externals and doing and get back to your center, yourself and BE present with who you are and what you want. 

Listen to Episode #83: Are you on the top of your 'to-do' list? :   Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify 


Let's face it ladies, many of us are frazzled by life. We are juggling A LOT in burned out bodies without 'the tribe'. We've lost sight of what is most important - BEing nourished (in all ways). 

I go into what I think being nourished means as well as how you can totally forget your to-do list when you shift gears and put your well being at the top.

Choose to EMBODY the you who you want to be

You get to choose to EMBODY the you who you want to be.

Somewhere along the way, I realized that I could live life in full color.

Instead of living in my mind, like an old fashioned movie reel.

Black, white, shaky, fuzzy, sound quality subpar.

Instead of living as if my life was happening TO me...

I began to lean in and see that life was happening FOR me…

And eventually, realized, I can happen to my own life…

What do I mean?

I mean waking up every day, free of feeling obligated and enslaved to living the way I am supposed to according to society.

And instead, asking myself every day, the question…

WHAT DO I WANT MOST TODAY?

And then giving that to myself…

The funny thing, was that I learned what I want is quite simple most often…

The beauty of this gift of giving to myself, is I get to live from within versus from without.

Without - meaning outside of myself, as if I have no say and have to live according to what’s expected of me as perceived by...

How to be true to YOU

'To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Who were you before the world told you who to be.

Don't remember?

Me neither.

To do so, I had to strip a lot down and away to get down to the real raw authentic Lydia.

I had to look myself in the metaphorical and real life mirror and let myself SEE myself so I could truly BE myself. Accept myself. Love myself. Own myself. And still to this day, this mirror work continues.

I'll be honest, I avoided that inner work for far too long. For one thing, I didn't even know to do so. I was so conditioned to feel and think, I would never be good enough that it became my default position.

The authentic YOU calls you to put yourself first. Not a thing many of us have been taught is ok, rather taught it's selfish.

And because we want to be GOOD and liked, we avoid putting ourselves first.

But sister, that's the worst thing we can do and continue to do.

When we do...

Abundance Is What Happens When You Choose To BE YOURSELF

abundance mindset self love Feb 02, 2019

*Note: Listen to the podcast episode of this post here.

Abundance is on my mind lately.
It’s a word that I’ve learned to redefine.

It starts with tapping in YOU, into an internal sense of self-approval.

And all of your glorious unique magnificence my dear ones.

Let’s discuss, shall we?

You see, I believe that abundance is what happens when you CHOOSE to unabashedly BE fully your complete fabulous self. And you can only BE fully you, after you have accepted the youness of YOU. Every ounce and inch and nuance of your complete whole self & life.

After all, there is No one alive who is youer than you!  (...thanks Dr. Seuss).

Holy shizz buckets my friends, that may seem a tall order but it’s a necessary one. Here’s why...

Self-approval is incredibly important because no triumph in life will fuel you for the long run if you are only operating on the external approval of others. I know for a lot of us, this is uncharted territory. Scary even.

Why?...

Love Is The Best Medicine Of All

It’s 2019, a year to take radical personal responsibility for your life and healing yourself. The good news is, your body has the capacity to heal itself. And love is the best medicine of all.

Your mind, emotions and spirit have an enormous impact on your body. How you think and feel about yourself and the world, as well as how you experience spiritual connection makes all the difference in healing your body.

I feel like I could write a whole entire book on this, maybe I will … for now, I want to empower you towards self-love and healing yourself.

I know it may sound cliche to say that love is the best medicine of all -all we need is love and a million other songs come to mind, but it’s so true. Science now even shows it.

So I want to help you tap into this. Even if you are someone who grew up without adequate love or were unloved as a child, you can still re-write your story. You can give yourself the love you deserve first. You can heal your own childhood and...
