Making Changes and Moving Up

This week has been a week full of inspiration, creativity, excitement and epiphanies. I have had some major clarifications arise for my dance company and will be unveiling a completely new branding in a few weeks. For the first time in my life my purpose feels so clear and I'm really excited! I can't wait to share all the details with you :-)

I read a really great ebook this week called Finance Your Dance by Ashani Mfuko. If you are looking for any kind of help with your business plan, clarifying your goals, or learning how to maximize your profits, I highly recommend this book. Her ideals about the arts truly resonate with me. She believes that the dance world (I would say the arts in general) need to stop talking about how we're poor starving artists and do something about it. Just because we're artists does not mean we deserve to work for free nor that we should suffer from financial insecurity. I for one have felt this way my entire career and have been working towards building my own "empire" for a long time. Her book has allowed me to see my business in a new light and really helped to clarify the tiny details that will make my business even more successful. You can find a link to her book HERE.

Life comes together in crazy ways. I've been doing a lot of reflecting on why my journey happened the way it did. If I knew 10 years ago what I know now I may have booked a few more gigs or may have been able to keep up with my schedule better. That thought makes me a little angry and a little sad, but honestly I wouldn't have it any other way. My experiences with bad health, over work, and stress have given me more knowledge that I can use to inform every future decision I make. By speaking out about my experiences I can help others to see different paths to take. God has a greater purpose for me and this week its all blossomed like a spring field. I feel ready to conquer the world and let nothing stand in my way.

My week had a few ups and downs (like most people) but overall I've been feeling relaxed and glowing. I'm enjoying the little things now. Satruday morning as I was rushing out the door to drive to work I noticed that the sky was so beautiful. The sun was just starting to peek out and created a whimsical stream of light blue amidst the grey clouds. Is there a picture? Only in my mind; I'm learning to live in the moment, not just document it. It was a nice start to the day.

This week I encourage you all to take some time to reflect on your purpose. Are you living the life you want to? What is your passion? I hope you can feel the love and inspiration I'm feeling right now; there's nothing better than knowing your living your life full out.

  1. This is awesome! Thank you so much for reading and sharing my e-book Catherine! I appreciate it very much! We all can look back and say, "if I knew then, what I know now", but what matters most is that we learn from our experiences (and that of others), and make smarter decisions going forward. Great blog! I look forward to reading more and staying in touch with you! Be blessed my dear! :)

  2. Thanks so much Ashani for the feedback and writing your ebook! I look forward to staying in touch as well :-)

A Week of Nourishing Gratitude

As I get older, I notice that there are many holiday traditions that I want to start sharing with my finance Anthony. After over a month of a crazy 7-day work schedule Thanksgiving week I had off Wednesday-Sunday; I haven't had a full day off in over a month and I was determined to make it fun week full of great food, the company of those I love and starting new traditions.

Now as with all holiday weeks you probably think of over indulging in comfort food that's terrible for you. Being I had a very severe wheat exposure attack recently, I knew I wanted to stay strict on Body Ecology but still enjoy myself to the fullest. I made it a point to get in the kitchen this week and make some amazing meals that not only tasted great, but are actually good for you. Here are some of my favorite meals from this week:

The Truth About My Journey With The Body Ecology Diet

It's been a really long time since I've posted here. Some of it was because life's been very busy. A lot of it has been because I've been afraid. I'm afraid of disappointing you, my tried and true readers. I've received so many wonderful messages over the last 3 years since starting the Body Ecology Diet that I'm an inspiration and that my blog has helped you to stay on track and commit to your health. I was afraid that if I wrote that I've been struggling lately that you would be disappointed. I haven't abandoned my beliefs about the wonders of this lifestyle at all. In fact I believe in it 100%. After my wedding 2 1/2 months ago, I had a lot of emotional baggage come up. I'm so happy in my marriage and have the best husband in the world but I no longer have the distraction of wedding planning to keep me distracted from really dealing with my issues; issues that go beyond food. You see Body Ecology taught me that this whole adventure is a mind/…

New Beginnings and Gluten Free/Body Ecology Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Can you believe it's September? I personally love the summer, its a great time to hit the reset button. September to me represents new beginnings and chances to start over. I'm excited for what's ahead this coming dance season; I'm ready to take the bull by the horns and have one of my most successful years creatively and career-wise. Something about the September air truly inspires my inner dreamer and I'm encouraged to believe anything is possible. It's so exciting!

To continue my journey on the year of my best self, I'm beginning to delve into mind-body connection and it's relationship to health. I've started reading Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself by Lissa Rankin, MD. I'm about a third of the way into the book and I feel like I'm learning so much already. Constant stress, overexertion, self doubt, and negative thoughts set off flight or fight responses in your body which in turn causes your body to be in a…
