There is nothing more calming to me than a few hours sitting at my favorite beach combing through the tiny rocks all around me and picking out treasures.
.
It brings me so much joy, I can hardly stand it.
.
No matter what my mood, or how my day has been going... set me on the beach with a strong coffee or chai, and my whole being centers.
.
My happy place. Calming. Centering.
.
The waves. The water. The beach.
.
What’s your happy place? Where do you find your peace?
.
What brings you joy?

Tonight, while going through pictures from the last week, I saw this one and my heart melted and was full of butterflies for this man and the love this baby girl has for him. It’s nice feeling those things again. The look on their faces says it all.

I spent the evening celebrating the graduation of one of my ballet dancers. Such a beautiful soul ready to take the world by storm and I know she will do amazing. I get so very attached to these sweet girls like they are all my own. I see so much of myself in them. I started really teaching ballet at 18 years old and in my first year of college. That was 16 years ago now! Crazy how fast that time has flown by. Now, here I am celebrating these young high school graduates ready to go out and start teaching their passion for dance. To have been a small part of their journey brings so much joy to my own. 💗

Friendship matters: had an incredible time today sharing my thoughts and exploring compassion fatigue, leadership, followership, professional development, character, resilience, balance, diversity, growth. Leadership techniques can be non-linear for the free thinkers and very linear for the task oriented. The key is to explore and learn and grow. Grow together. Grow in self. Change the world. When the swag is a great book and a signature pink mug... It’s one of the greatest days. #findingjoy #read #leadingchange #burnout #leadership #johnkotter #mentor #shareyourstory

I read this amazing article written by @finding_joy this morning. We all need mom motivations to get us through our extremely chaotic days as moms. Because some days are just hard. ❤️

Eeeeeeeek! Guys! I am so excited to have been named one of @organikahealth 25 biggest fans! (Vibrating with excitement!)
.
If you know me you know how much I truly love this brand! Seriously:
1) Enhanced collagen in my morning coffee/tea/smoothie.
2) Bone Broth around lunch time.
3) Activated charcoal to whiten my teeth at night!
.
If you haven't tried out their products I highly recommend you do. I love that they are a family run, Canadian 🇨🇦brand with some of the highest quality standards in the health industry!
.
As many of your know, I'm moving to a very small town next week (2000 people!)
.
Truth be told, I was a little worried that moving to a small town would mean I'd have to leave some of my favourite brands behind. While visiting one day, I walked into a little store. Almost like a beam of light was shining on it I saw Organikas bone broth from across the room. I threw my arms in the air and proudly declared, "OKAY! We can move here!" My partner and I couldn't stop laughing because, seriously, that was the deciding factor for me! I guess that speaks to how much I love them!! 😂😂😂
.
Thank you again Organika for naming me one of your 25 biggest fans! It's an honour!!! 🖤🖤🖤 Mad, mad love to you guys!

Just me and some friends😊
So fun to be working out with this lady who’s been training me for the last several months!

It was hard....but I couldn’t stop smiling😊
Just a year ago I couldn’t do ANY of this.
Today I crushed this workout with a smile on my face💪🏼 Honestly I couldn’t do this a year ago because I hadn’t tried....I didn’t BELIEVE I could do this.

I’m here to tell you....YOU can do this.
And when you finally take that step, YOU won’t be able to wipe that silly smile off your face like me😊!

Two years ago this week, I had surgery and found out I had thyroid cancer. It was six weeks after my son was born, & I’ve grieved over having something painful associated with an otherwise joyful time. I’m sharing my story on the blog today, & I decided to post this photo @xoxokellynina took last month because you can see both of my scars. Many years ago, I read LITTLE BEE by Chris Cleave & often think of this quote when I look in the mirror: “We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived.” It echoes the way I’ve tried to see the beauty & find the good in each season of my life. 💖

Whether or not you read my post, I want to encourage you to check your neck. Thyroid cancer doesn't usually present any symptoms, & blood tests generally don't detect it. My TSH levels were totally normal pre-op! Neck examination is the most common way a nodule is discovered. In my case, my mom noticed a lump in my neck while talking to me. There are instructions online (& linked in my post) for how you can perform a neck check at home. 🦋

And now back to regularly scheduled sanding.❤️
I had a brainstorm that this could be our new bathroom counter top, but I just measured and it is too short. Next one. And walnut maybe. Scott and I tried some epoxy resin and added a StoryBoard touch.

What if we were more forgiving of ourselves? Instead of judging, condemning, or shaming yourself for a “mistake” you made, WHAT IF you gave yourself unconditional love instead? And what if by doing so, you automatically give others the same unconditional love and acceptance? Perhaps that is the key to peace, joy, compassion, and love. Perhaps it starts with ourselves!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

It’s not fun but it’s necessary. I missed my company’s annual conference because I chose to put my health first. It’s what I preach and live every day. Do the hard things. Melanoma skin check by my specialist this morning and I’m all good 🙌🏻🙏🏻❤️. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. .

I’m looking forward to this weekend: time with my family, some friends, an endorphin-boosting workout, and hopefully some downtime to read and take a breath.

“Who is your peaceful person?”..... Love this concept from #Happy by @fearnecotton “is there someone who instantly springs to mind who can calm your negativity in one fell swoop? If you don’t instantly recognise this person in your life, then maybe it’s time to seek one out! They’ll be there waiting for you” 😊 #inspirationforlife #littlethingsbigimpact #honest #happybalance #peacefulperson #findingjoy #recommendedread

Embrace every moment, open to its teaching! Reconnect with your joyful eternal Self... there is nothing else of consequence! Cali and I are sending peace to your day. 🐶🕊️💜🙌🏼

REAL LIFE 🥑 Sweet tooth happens, and while I believe in balance and treats I’m also trying really hard to stay on track with my fitness journey so when the craving for chocolate pudding hit , I decided to do that thing that I’ve read and heard about but never tried. Avocado pudding 🥑and OH MY you guys!!!! So delicious 😍 😋 I used 1 avocado Spoonful of Honey, spoonful of dark chocolate powder and a bit of milk, blended and 👌silky, rich, light, tasty, so good! Who has tried this before and why did I wait so long? I feel zero guilt eating it because It’s basically salad 😜 chocolate salad.😂😂😂 and the whip cream is unsweetened and I whipped it by hand so you know, I used up all those calories whipping it, therefore it canceled itself out🤣 Logic on point🙌🙌 How do you treat yourself??

*****HUGE GIVEAWAY!!!!!!*****
One of my absolute favorite books on finding JOY in our lives. I read this book as a young first time mom and it taught me so much about marriage, motherhood, and homemaking. Someone will win this book and here is how!! 1. Tag a friend. 2. Share your favorite summer time memory. ********************************** Winner will be announced on June 26! #joyinitall #womenlivingwell #findingjoy

Sometimes we find ourselves in seasons of life that require so much of ourselves. We are pulled in a million directions and what is needed of us seems greater than what we have to give.
Each one of us (Lori, Courtney, and Carrie) has found ourselves in a place where what has been required of us at home, school, & work has left our tanks with little to give. We care so much about our community here (that's you!!) and our heart is that each post can bless you, challenge you, or at least make you laugh and say "amen!" Which is why for the last month or so we've been fairly quiet on social media.
This summer will likely look similar with minimal posting as we each take some much needed time to renew and unplug. So if you don't want to miss out on any of our posts make sure you turn on your notifications!
May this summer be a beautiful one for you too - finding joy in the every day & making connections with family, friends, and neighbors a priority. .
💕 Carrie, Courtney, & Lori

Ms. Maggie and I are sharing our morning quiet time! .

Every morning I take a few moments to breathe, connect with myself, connect with God (the infinite one), and I set the intention that my actions, the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart be filled with light and love. My daily walk is a journey leading me to back to our divine truth and right which is pure, unconditional love. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Charlie and I did a little “summer cleaning” and he helped me add a little curb appeal to my display with those curtains! I was a little hesitant about the plaid, but I think it works well! What do you think?

On a different note, have you ever had times, when you’re just down in the dumps, and then all of the sudden one thing pops up and turned it all around?
I was feeling that way until this week. This week has been a lot of “pinch me” moments with exciting things and possibilities to come that I can’t wait to share with you guys in the near future!

Of all the plants in the world, the Lotus flower is deemed one of the most unique: the seeds germinate in muddy water only and grow out above the water surface to bloom in remarkable beauty.
This is so significant of life : we find ourselves in the "mud of life" feeling hopeless, but as the Lotus flower, it is possible to rise above our circumstances and grow into remarkable beauty. We need hope and inspiration to kick start our journey to JOY.

I am evolving. I am shifting. I am not the same person that I was before. Everything in my life is “before” and “after” my husband Eric died. I like who I am way more now that I did before. And that’s okay. How could I be the same person? There’s no way I could be the same. Nor do I want to be. Almost all things of me have shifted, even if it has been the slightest. My desires and wants have evolved as well. Business doesn’t look the same. But that’s because my life has become richer off screen. And I am intentionally living. Whereas before I was intentionally working. But when you go through something like we have, your perspective changes and becomes more pronounced, and your boundaries come into play like never before. Could my business change even more so? Yes. Do i know how? No. But I know that inspiration comes in many forms and there’s lots of ways to make money. And all I need is enough money to take care of my kids, provide a life and adventure for them, and allow me to retire when I’m ready and continue to live the life I want. Because you only live once. And while I enjoy the work I do, when I am dying and my life flashes before my eyes, I don’t want to see me sitting at a computer and that to have been my life, ya know? I want to see hugs and loves and experiences and beautiful scenery and smiles and living; really living. That’s not to say I don’t work. It’s not to say I don’t want to work. But my video editing work is not and will not be my sole focus any longer. There’s more I want to do. Like finish renovating the trailer so we can make new fresh memories as a family. Write my book so I can create an additional income stream for my family as well as tell our story. Continue with my online business to inspire others to get behind the camera and help women spend less time working and more time living. Life is short. And during my time of mourning was some incredible reflection time. And our lives have grown a little bit slower since we’ve lost Eric. It’ll never be as fast paced as it was before. And I don’t want it to. I choose happy. I choose this shift. As much as I miss Eric and wished he was with us, I thank him for the shift. It was needed.

Yesterday... I said my first goodbye.

She meandered at the end of the line as I was leaving...and I reached out to hug this sweet little girl...maybe for the last time... "I'm so proud of you"...I told her "...I'm so proud of who you are..." And I had to pull away and watch her cry... I cried too... Goodbyes are supposed to be hard... And the hardest goodbyes are really just another way to say "I love you..." So be brave, little one.

And always be you.... #wanderandfree #wanderwithme #everydayjoy #everydayadventures #adventure #brave #courage #discipleship #findingjoy #friendship #daycareisms #daycarelife #grace #goodthings #globetrotter #sheisnotlost #journeys #jesuscalling #littlewonders #missionarylife #solofemale #travel #travelgirls #girlsgoneglobal #girlsthatwander #girlmeetsglobe #wandergirl #ywam2018 #ywamguatemala #ywait2018

Many outsiders often think, how do THAT many kids get enough attention? How is there enough love to spread around.
It's been my experience, in my home, that love doesn't divide, only multiples. My boys adore their big sisters and the big girls certainly feel the same way.

my sercret weapon.... colour 😉💪.. and a lip colour is one of them. I've been testing few of the 'long lasting' red lipsticks to see if they really are what they claim and if they really let me be kissing my boy without messing on his face ... I'll be doing a little blog post soon to let you know the result.... but the colour is lovely.. 😍

✨Her view: "'I choose beauty' is a simple, yet powerful phrase that I try to keep in my conscious thoughts as much as possible. Because I suffer from depression & debilitating migraines, I can easily find myself feeling low. Looking for the many beautiful things in life is truly such an easy way to keep away from the negative state of mind." .

I am convinced that knowing ourselves very well is the secret to success in any area of life.
.
A successful marriage, parenting, our work, what we create, how we lead...
.
My encouragement to the women I work with is to do whatever it takes to know their strength, their depth, their boundaries.
.
Climb a mountain, learn to play an instrument, volunteer at a shelter, become a child advocate, join a sport... whatever pushes you.
.
Because as we know ourselves better we can take on bigger challenges with deeper gratitude and more grace and that is where success happens ❤️

“There can be occasions when we suddenly & involuntarily find ourselves loving the natural world with a startling intensity, in a burst of emotion which we may not fully understand, and the only word that seems to me to be appropriate for this feeling is joy.”

Why when I try to take a photo of him does he shove his hand at the camera? Rejection! But when his nanny puts a phone in his face he just stays in bliss and let’s her capture the moment? I’m jealous that she gets all the good photos (but I love the shit out of her)!

She’s been talking about seeing these horses again, feeding them potato chips, and taking them for another ride. While there was a younger, less experienced girl there who needed to ride “Sally” (the horse #pumpkinhead bonded with last year), Rusty was a great new four-legged friend. Again, thank you to everyone at @cedarcreekstables for your thoughtfulness, kind hearts, and exciting adventures for this kid and her dad. Memories are slowly becoming traditions.

How To Get out of a Funk
by Alisa Lujan
.
1.) Cry a lot.
2.) Do all the things, but only like 70% sincerely because you’re not really in the mood.
3.) Cry some more, play the victim, reach out, try too hard.
4.) Finally give it to God and follow that subtle prompting He’s been giving you from the start.
.
Okay so I’m no life coach, but for the record I do have a prettier routine that includes restoration therapy and essential oils and works amazing when my mental game is on point. Life is just life sometimes.
.
Today’s prompting was to revisit my blog and share a little more backstory. (Link in bio.) Maybe He knew I needed to process some things and that doing so would help me recommit to myself, to Him, and to my family. Or maybe He knew someone who needed to hear it. All I know is He is happy, so if you want happy, follow Him. Enjoy. 😘

It’s been a great trip: outdoor adventures, relaxing, reading, recharging, snuggles, family time, independent time, good food, some souvenirs, interesting conversation, air hockey, thumb-wars, some baking, a ton of pizza, and lots of giggles.

I've been spending a lot of time lately purging my life of things I never use and don't need. I really want to simplify my life and feel less stressed and really love the life I live. I feel like it's been a slow process and at times I just grab a trash bag and I'm merciless.

I think I've always had it in my head to buy things I don't really want on sale instead of spending the money on the things I really do want that will last longer and make me happier in the long run. So then I end up with an accumulation of stuff that doesn't really make me happy but instead makes me feel all out of sorts all the time. I'm always cleaning, always picking up after the kids, always doing laundry, always feeling like I can never get finished and just relax. Our house is clean but we just have stuff and I hate stuff. I'm never satisfied with things and constantly changing. I've wondered for years what is wrong with me?! When really it's the stuff surrounding me causing me to feel so stressed out.
I've noticed already that just being able to see the clothes hanging in my closet has made me feel better, think clearer and not feel so overwhelmed. I'm nowhere near finished but gotta start somewhere! I don't think I'll be any good at being a minimalist but I sure want to try!
