    Are you living your life with intention or just “doing” life?  Are you manifesting the things you truly desire, or do you find yourself settling lately?  Are you feeling the nudge to step into your calling but you are resistant to it?

    You have the power within you to step into a life you desire and are being called to live.  Teri talks about the nudges in her own life and how they helped direct her to step into her calling and what happened when she didn’t follow the nudges.  She also shares how to work with intention daily and shares tools on how to manifest the things you desire.

  • Life Isn’t Fair!

    When I’m feeling like life isn’t fair or my thoughts/emotions feel out-of-control, I have choices to make.

    This is what I choose:

    -To first allow myself to feel everything I am feeling and that it’s natural.

    -To remember my mom told me over, “Life isn’t fair!”

    -To not bash the very people who I believe are hurting other people, but to pray that the darkness will be revealed.

    -To not destroy or riot in the streets and hurt others who have never hurt me.

    -To not judge others for having different opinions than me or not seeing the world as I see it. I pray I continue to evaluate my lens, which I see the world through, and seek to better understand others with compassion.

    -To not control or censor others in anyway, but to light a path of positive choices for others to want to follow.

    -To focus on things I can change even when I feel small.

    -To act on things I can change when I have the strength.

    -To pray for courage to change things I can when I feel defeated.

    – To not lose focus on what is truly important.

    -To pour into the lives of others in the areas I have been afforded the opportunity to be an inspiration and influence.

    -To protect my ears and eyes from the negative and focus on the positive.

    -To not be led like a sheep, but to always see the truth.

    -To give where I can give.

    -To make a difference in the lives of children, our future generations who will someday soon lead us.

    – To continue to grow our businesses with “My Person” because it is our passion and how we help people.

    -To continue to strive to make choices to live a healthy life and help others on their healthy living journey.

    -To continue to do things that make me feel good like writing, dancing in the kitchen and talking walks on the beach.

    -To find my breath and focus on it. (I didn’t think it would work either, but it does)

    – To connect with others because we were made to connect and support each other’s journey regardless of how bumpy of a ride it is.

    – To keep falling in love with myself, because the more I can learn to love myself, the more I can learn to love others deeply.

    -To challenge myself daily to live authentically and shine my light because it will give others permission to shine their light.

    -To fail forward.

    -To be a good human because that is what we are called to do.

    We all have choices.  What can you choose at this very moment to help with peace in your life and the world?
