WHAT’S FEEDING YOU?

fullsizerender-114

Hey SOS Sista,

One of the things I love the most about Instagram is coming across thought-provoking quotes and messages. Social Media– if used properly– can be a great tool for your personal development and spiritual growth. (So be conscious of who you follow!!) A few days ago, the above quote really caught my attention. It made me stop and ponder on what I’ve been feeding on this year. Soul sucking or soul enriching food? It’s the perfect time of the year for us all to think about this.

I’ve mentioned how much I love this time of the year because I take time to cocoon. Being a person who is easily distracted, I learned what steps I must take to get focused. Cocooning is a wonderful time for to catch up on reading inspiring books and watching motivational videos. I know you busy mama’s are time restricted especially around the holidays so try taking small chunks to cocoon. Maybe an hour before the kids get up or an hour after they go to bed. It’s vital to our growth that we take time away from meaningless distractions, people who drain us and get focused on the changes we need to make. That truly is the core of SOS! You cannot depend on that once a week sermon you hear on Sunday mornings. If you deeply desire to make hardcore and lasting changes— it takes effort, time and laser-beamed focus.

What have you been feeding yourself in 2016? 

FEED: verb

  1. to give food to

  2. to furnish something essential to the development, sustenance, maintenance, or operation of feeds the mind>

Will you let another year go by feeding your mind and spirit junk food?  2017 is right around the corner and I know you have those goals to set, fears to overcome and a breakthrough around the corner.

Are you ready?
Are you dragging your feet?
Are you allowing insecurity and fear to lead the way? 

I can help you get ready.

I can help you get motivated.

I can help you build more confidence!

Do not allow more time to go by and you get to mid 2017 and still have not made changes. Consider me you spiritual dietician. Let’s get you on a healthy spiritual diet. 

Stop letting yourself down and make 2017 the best ever!

To make it easier on you to take that step forward, I’m offering a holiday special on private sessions. Buy one private session and get one session. ($300 Value for $150) Let’s work together for 2 hours for the price of 1 hour.

Safeguarding Your Home & Family Against Holiday Crimes by Guest Blogger Aimee Lyons

 

home-alone_0

 

The movie Home Alone has become an iconic holiday film, most well-known for the hilarious booby traps set by Kevin to curtail the plans of the nasty robbers who had their sights set on his family’s home. But holiday season home robberies, sadly, aren’t limited to the big screen; CNN reports that burglaries increase during the holiday season in the real world, too. Here are a few common risks that may make your home and family a bigger target for would-be thieves and how to avoid them.

Leaving Valuables Out in the Open

Holiday parties are happening plenty during the holiday season, and if you find yourself playing host to a few or many guests, you’ll want to safeguard your valuables. Of course you trust your friends, but there’s always the possibility of someone bringing a plus-one they recently started dating. Better safe than sorry when it comes to your most prized possessions, so tuck those valuables away in a hidden safe when your home will be filled with guests.

Headed Out of Town? Hold Your Mail

One of the biggest indicators that homeowners are out of town is an overflowing mailbox. If you’re heading out of town for a few days to visit friends or an extended shopping trip, it’s worth having the post office hold your mail while you’re gone, particularly if you’re expecting any packages that will quickly fill up your mailbox.

Don’t Broadcast Your Plans on Social Media

It’s happened more than once, most recently with Kim Kardashian’s highly publicized robbery in France, yet social media users continue to publicly broadcast their travel plans across social networks. Letting the world know that your home will be empty and unattended for two entire weeks is akin to sending a written invitation to your local burglar. As tempting as it is to share every detail of your life, don’t.

Put Your Lights on Timers

Much like an overflowing mailbox can indicate that a homeowner isn’t around, Christmas lights that aren’t turned on for several nights in a row are a surefire indicator that no one’s home. Burglars generally don’t like to get caught, and they’re usually not out to get into altercations with homeowners or cause anyone physical harm, so they’ll choose a home that’s seemingly empty over a home with obvious family inside in most cases. If your lights are turned on routinely every evening, it’s more difficult to tell if someone’s home.

Keep Gifts and Packages Out of View

As beautiful as your Christmas tree is shining through the front bay window, avoid the temptation to pile up all those gifts too soon. If you do display gifts in advance, take steps to make sure that they’re not clearly visible from outside. Likewise, bring any packages delivered inside as soon as possible. If it’s feasible, make arrangements to have delivery drivers and postal workers tuck packages away in a spot that’s not visible from the street.

Don’t Trust People Going Door-to-Door

If your doorbell rings unexpectedly this holiday season, be cautious who you open the door to. Various scams have been carried out using door-to-door methods, such as people posing for charity workers or volunteers seeking donations, people posing as repair professionals or sales representatives. If you can’t verify a person’s identity on the spot, decline their request, or you can simply choose not to answer the door to anyone you don’t recognize.

It’s sad that families need to take extra precautions to safeguard their homes against potential crooks during the season of giving, but being the victim of a robbery is no way to spend the holiday season. Take the ‘better safe than sorry approach’ and play it safe this year.

 

 

 

GET OFF YOUR LAZY BOOTIE: 2 Steps To Changing Habits

 

Breaking bad habits

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, 
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits, 
Your habits become your values, 
Your values become your destiny.” 

― Mahatma Gandhi

 

Hey Hey Beautiful!

It’s the first day of December and I’ve started my end-of-year ritual of reflection and introspection. With exactly 30 days left in 2016 and 2017 around the corner, it’s easy to go into freak out mode because we may have missed the mark and didn’t achieve all that we had planned for the year. I admit, I felt a mini panic coming on yesterday so I forced myself to reflect on how much I did achieve. It’s all about what you focus on! 2016 was a BIG year for my husband and I, but how easily do we focus on what we didn’t get done. Today, I awoke with a better perspective and look forward to the new opportunities 2017 will offer.

Over the next month, I challenge you to reflect on how the past year turned out, before jumping into something new.

Think about this… your life this past year has been a result of all of your habits, both good and bad. (OUCH!!)

And the habits you decide to eliminate, change, and improve upon will ultimately determine your level of success in 2017.

Now ask yourself this…

What habits are keeping you from achieving your goals and becoming the person you want to be?

I really want you to be honest with yourself and think about this. For example: I admit, due to building my brand myself without a team (getting a team together is one of my 2017 goals) I spend too much time on social media. It’s been a challenge to schedule my social media time.  I always plan to post content and get off, BUT how often do we see a post that leads us to whatever is tagged then you go over to that account and on and on. Yikes, you’ve lost 30 minutes and you could have used that time to get in that cardio you’ve been meaning to do. Who feels me? Another example of a habit I need to change– getting in enough cardio! I swear, I talk to myself sometimes and say, “Tiff get off your lazy a$$”.  Seriously.

I’ve been diving into great books and listening to my favorite motivators and thought leaders. This morning I opened this email from Jack Canfield and was absolutely meant to read his latest blog– see below. Thought you would enjoy the kick in the bootie too!

______________________________________________________

The reality is that you – and the life you lead today – are the result of your habits. Changing habits can seem difficult to accomplish at first, but success is a result of your habits.

If you think about it, you’re living out your habits every day. From how early you get out of bed, to your morning routine, how you dress, walk, exercise, interact with others and even what you habitually think about and how you respond to the world.

These habits got you to where you are today…

The fact is that habits are necessary. They free up your mind so you can concentrate on how to survive day to day. For instance, you don’t have to think about how to drive your car – which allows you instead to be on the lookout for danger while you’re driving.

Unfortunately, habits can also keep you locked in self-destructive patterns, which limit your success. Becoming successful is a result of changing habits. You’ll need to eliminate bad habits and develop new ones that are in alignment with the life you want to live.

The life you want to live won’t just materialize one day… your habits determine your outcomes!

What is Keeping You From Achieving Your Goals?

What are the habits that you live with every day that are keeping you from achieving your goals?

What habits are keeping you from achieving your goals?

I encourage you to be really honest with yourself here…

  • Are you always running late?
  • Do you forget to return phone calls within 24 hours?
  • Do you stay up late and never get enough sleep?
  • Do you often break promises to your friends and family?
  • Do you resist planning out your day?
  • Do you spend money you don’t have?
  • Do you avoid putting important tasks and events in your calendar?
  • Do you drink alcohol more than once a week – and do you have more than two drinks per day?

Imagine the Result of You Changing Habits

  • What would your life be like if you ate healthy meals, exercised and got enough sleep?
  • What if you saved your money, stopped using credit cards, and paid cash for everything?
  • What if you stopped procrastinating, overcame your fears, and began networking with people in your field?
  • What if you created a detailed annual plan for success – then chunked it down into monthly, weekly, and daily plans to ensure you stayed on track to achieving your goals?

Would your life be different if you changed your habits? I bet it would!

The 2 Steps to Changing Habits

My suggested action step for you is to write down some productive habits you couldvisualize, then adopt in your life. Step two is to ‘act as if’ you were living these new habits right now!

To help you get moving toward creating more successful habits right away, I’d like to recommend that you develop four new success habits each year, one for each quarter.

Once you determine the new habit you’re ready to adopt, next you’ll want to create a method that will support your new habit.

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • You could write it down on a card that you keep with you and read several times a day.
  • You could make it a part of your daily visualization.
  • You could also enlist the help of an accountability partner who has habits they also want to change, or work with a personal coach who can keep you on track.

Make a 100% Commitment to You New Habit

It’s important to make a 100% commitment to your new habit, so be specific about the steps that you’re willing to take in order to drop an old habit and adopt a new one. Don’t be vague about how you will change your habits. Spell it out for yourself so you can put yourself in situations that will motivate you to act upon your new habit.

Just developing four good habits a year will dramatically shift your life to be more in line with achieving your vision. And the more focused you are, the easier your other, not-so-good habits will be to replace. Your perspective will shift and you’ll see more clearly how your old habits just aren’t serving you anymore.

Make the decision. Make the commitment. Then watch your new, positive life unfold!

I want to leave you with a bit of homework to complete after you’re done reading. Write down the four habits that you want to develop over the next year. Make a 100% commitment to each of your new habits and watch great things happen.

Leave a comment below and tell me which new habit you have in mind to develop first.

Changing habits in 2017 starts with a fresh set of goals using my 12-Month Success Planner. I designed this planner to help you plan exactly how to tackle daily challenges and achieve your goals. Use it to get a jump on the new year.

To your new habits in 2017,

GOT A BRICK IN YOUR TUMMY?

teamidetox88

 

If you’re like me and love to enjoy a bit of indulging during the holidaze, then join me for the TeaMi Blends 30 day detox program. After Thanksgiving, I felt like I had a brick sitting in my stomach. How about you? I felt bloated, lethargic and heavy. You look down and see nothing but a poochie belly. I cursed at my skinny jeans and opted for stretchy leggings. Not pretty, folks. A detox was exactly what I needed. If you have been with me here on SOS for some time then you know I’m a firm believer in doing a detox/ cleanse a few times a year. The last cleanse I did was great, but it was so much work to steep the pot of tea and take all these droppers. It was time consuming and I wanted to quit after the 3rd day. I felt like I couldn’t go far from the house! TeaMi has a great travel tumbler so you can take your tea with you.

After doing some research, I found Teami and read through all the positive reviews. Here we are! I am only on day 2 and already feeling lighter. My energy increased and the bloat has started to go down. Hallelujah! I’m looking forward to saying hello to my favorite skinny jeans in a week or so.

The Hannibal Look + Coconut Oil = GORGEOUS!

fullsizerender-113

 

I love getting beauty tips from makeup artists and sharing them with you fellow beauty junkies!  I started modeling professionally at 16 and have worked with hundreds of makeup artists. Being the precocious teen I was, I learned early to ask makeup artists, stylists and hair stylists questions. You’re there with them face-to-face for a good hour so why not get as much info out of them as you can?!

Yesterday, I lent my face to my talented girlfriends who own The Makeup Zone in Plano for a fun YouTube video. Daniela and Leslie are beautiful, generous and driven and you know I love surrounding myself with women like that. I was thrilled that they asked me to be their model! If you are a MUA artist, make sure to participate in their challenge. It’s recreating Jessica Chastain’s look from the upcoming film called Miss Sloane. For more info, go to their Facebook Page.

Because I needed to arrive to set with a clean face, I wanted to make sure my skin was prepped and hydrated. I told Leslie I had just done my go-to egg white mask so my face would be a good canvas for them. She began telling me her at home secrets for getting hydrated and glowing skin. Of course, I had to try it and share with you. She said if you have a big event to wear a sheet mask every night for 4-5 nights before the event. If you need a quick fix, rub coconut oil into your skin then wear the sheet mask over it for as long as you can. I did this last night and whoa– my skin was tight, glowing and plump this morning.

I love those sheet masks and recommend finding one that addresses your specific skin needs. The one I’ve been using lately is for brightening (shown above) and purchased them at Marshalls. A pack of 4 was only $5.99. You can find them on Amazon, at Ulta and I believe even Target carries them now. I always feel like I look like Hannibal Lector when I wear them, but who cares as long as it works, right? Aaron came home late from a gig and I had fallen asleep with it on- poor guy, I think I scared him. LOL!

 

WHY COCONUT OIL?

cocnut-oil

 

Coconut oil is truly a gift from nature with so many benefits. The antibacterial properties of coconut oil  protect the skin from potential pathogens and reduces the risk of bacterial infections making acne worse. It is mainly the lauric acid in the coconut oil that acts as the antibacterial agent. This medium chain fatty acid constitutes 85% of the coconut oil. The only other natural substance high in lauric acid happens to be breast milk.

Coconut oil has the ability to penetrate deep into the skin so it hydrates quickly. It also helps with wrinkles and anti-aging because the triglycerides attract protein molecules which constantly repair the collagen layer.

Sounds like we all need to keep a jar of coconut oil on our vanity and not just in the kitchen.

Go get your glow on gorgeous!

HOW TO GET MORE: 10 Thankful Quotes

things_want

Happy Thanksgiving Gorgeous!

My belief is we should live every single day as if it’s Thanksgiving. When I shifted from a lifestyle of constant complaining to one of thanks + gratitude — EVERYTHING CHANGED. Not only was I blessed with more goodness to be thankful for, but I began living with more joy, peace and overall happiness. What is your level of gratitude today? Do you focus more on the things you don’t have? Could I have a bigger house? Heck yes. Do I want more shoes + handbags? Umm, of course. But, I am so grateful to have a roof over my head, a warm bed, my cute reliable Jeep and more than enough shoes and handbags…that I never even wear.

Make the shift today and change your focus.

To help you get started, I collected some great quotes:

 

“No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.” ~ James Allen

“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” ~ John Wooden

“Make it a habit to tell people thank you.  To express your appreciation,  sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return.  Truly appreciate those around you,  and you’ll soon find many others around you.  Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.” ~ Ralph Marston

“Be thankful for what you have, you’ll end of having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

“It is impossible to feel grateful and depressed in the same moment.” ~ Naomi Williams

“A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.” ~ Saint Basil

“You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life. And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you” ~ Sarah Ban Breathnack

“If we magnified blessings as much as we magnify disappointments, we would all be much happier.” ~ John Wooden

“None of those material possessions do anything to make your life any better… I know a lot of people who have a lot of everything, and they’re absolutely the most miserable people in the world.  So it won’t do anything for you unless you’re a happy person and can have peace with yourself.” ~ Lenny Kravitz

“Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Remember, life is an echo. It always gets back to you. So give goodness. ” ~Unknown

HEY YOU! It’s OK to be Beautiful

Happy Friday Fabulous Ones!

One of my absolute favorite things to do is spend time with women who are fully living their purpose. These women exude confidence, passion and an indescribable radiance. Yesterday, I had the blessing of spending much of the afternoon and evening with a beautiful Australian woman with all of these qualities. It was a true gift to glean from her wisdom and experience. I’m thrilled to introduce you to Simone Leslie!  This statuesque stunning blonde is a mom, wife, author, speaker, minister and master neuro strategist. Her journey is one that I relate to and I know you will to. I could not wait to light a candle and dive into her book this morning! It draws you in with inspiring photography, quotes and easy-to-read short stories that crack open your heart.  Plus, her book is complimented with a touching song that is like salve to the soul and speaks to a woman’s worth–  appropriately called “Beautiful”.

Simone Leslie was presenting to millions on national television in her early 20’s and friends thought she had the world at her feet, yet behind the confident mask was a broken hearted, suicidal little girl. Her book, It’s OK to be Beautiful – Heavenly whispers to a Broken Heart has touched and healed thousands of lives. Written in a neurological way, this book addresses the root cause of depression and anxiety disorders. Designed to create a shift in the core programming levels of the brain, these short stories and revelations will make you laugh and cry but most of all, allow you to see yourself through the eyes of love and truth, bringing healing and wholeness, setting up the foundation of success.

its-ok-to-be-beautifull_3d3-500x500

 

“Most often the thing that limits us from achieving our dreams and goals is not the lack of knowledge or ability; it’s within our very own brain. The beliefs & neural programs we run off, what we subconsciously believe about life, what we deserve, our worth & core identity. Be it personal or business and professional outcomes, the process for breaking through to our desired outcomes always involves the discovery of limiting neurological pathways. We can then rewire them to create smooth and empowering neural programs that deliver exponential results!” Simone explains.

 

Occasionally you will read a book that seems to understand who you are and where you are at. It can leave a profound mark on your soul and change your path for good. This book is a raw gem offering transparency and truth taking you on an eventful journey that offers healing, understanding and love, pointing you toward your own profound revelation and change. This book makes the perfect gift for the women in your life who desires to step into their destiny! Get it on Simone’s website or on Amazon.
