Often the list of ways you want to show up in the world can clash with the mundane activities that call to you.
Life tasks like laundry, paying bills, going to the grocery store and food prep come to mind. As does business tasks like answering emails, strategic planning, creating content and working with clients.
It can feel overwhelming.
Your feelings are the key!
When you find yourself mired in the “to do” lists - feeling constricted and small instead of the expanded feelings of joy, peace, and presence - it’s time for a reset.
Breath work, using the Be Love Principles, or going for a walk in nature all help shift perspective and allow you to refocus.
My ultimate tip for overwhelm?
Go inside the sacred space of your own heart, and ask Spirit/Love/God, “Show me.”

I’ve let other tasks get in the way of my progress. But why? Fear? Life distractions? Was I just lazy?
I’ve identified the culprit.
Not always, but often, I realize I’ve...
