Earlier this week I posted a new vlog of my solo trip to O’ahu, Hawaii. I tried to share as much as was possible while also making sure safety was highest priority. You will see gorgeous views and possible be sad that it’s not Summer anymore (if you live in the same hemisphere that I do).
Would you like to hear more tips and details about traveling solo? Let me know and I can share in another post or video.
My favorite thing was hiking and thing I am most proud of was braving the waters and going surfing! If you listened to one of my past podcasts, you will know this is a big deal. Even though there are things we may fear, it is good to stay on our toes and allow ourselves to expand and grow.
Can you think of a situation where you panicked? Or, maybe someone you know or were depending on panicked. What was the result?
We go through unexpected circumstances in our lives at times that give us reason to lose our cool. Falling into a panic stricken response is literally the worst thing you can do. I’m going to share some situations where I felt the urge to panic and then give you some tips for keeping a clear head when you find yourself in tough situations.
I made some quick and easy pancakes this morning and wanted to share the recipe with you. I’m slowly working on taking refined sugar out of my diet, and right now I am experimenting with date sugar. I found it online, and what I love is the only ingredient on the package is dates! It is quite good and worked very well for this recipe.
You will need:
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp. date sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups water
1 tbsp oil (I used grapeseed)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Makes eight 4″ pancakes
Whisk together dry ingredients, then add liquid. Cook on medium low heat for best results.
I’ve gotten the same question several times over the past month or so….How can we boost our energy naturally? Such a great question. It can be so tempting to rely on unhealthy snacks or drink way too many cups of coffee.
In Episode 3 of the Wonderfully Made Podcast, I give my top 10 ways to feel more energetic. You can listen on Soundcloud or on iTunes.
Hope you all are well. Have you gotten a chance to listen to my podcast yet? If not, I’m done with Episode 2 and the 3rd episode will be live this Friday. If you have iTunes, it is also available there. I’d love it if you could leave me a review once you’ve listened.
I love this topic because it is all about taking yourself off of autopilot and being more mindful. You might surprise yourself into finding your true calling. You never know!
Fear is powerful. Some of us have carefully camouflaged it to look like perfectionism, procrastination, excuses, or some other form. When I am afraid to fail, I keep prolonging the start of something new. Can you relate?
I’ve known for about a year now that I should begin a podcast. I even recorded the first episode, but then I let someone hear it and got discouraged by the feedback. I thought, “what if I’m not ready?”.
I’m getting past these hurdles I’ve created for myself and I’m allowing myself the opportunity to grow in the process. I’ve finally started my podcast! It will be on iTunes soon, but is available on Soundcloud currently. I hope you’ll take a listen and perhaps gain some new insight from it.
The podcast is called Wonderfully Made— a phrase from Psalm 139 which has been encouraging to me over the years. My brief episodes with delve into topics to help simplify life and encourage people through daily habits and wellness to live a more fulfilled life.
