I used to be the worst thinker ever
Literally, ideas I thought were good, plans I thought would work which I never executed, I was scared and lazy
And then you see people with the SAME idea as yours, making it
Because they took action
I used to procrastinate a lot, because I always used to think :" well, I got all the time of the world"
On top of that, the reason why I think I wasn't productive is because I didn't know where to start
I wanted to build an online business that would allow me to quit my job and make me money constantly, with the least effort possible
Instagram allowed me to reach my dreams... even during lockdown; which is impressive
That's why if you want to start something online, I will always suggest Instagram .
You DON'T need lots of money to start (in fact, I started with $0)
You DON'T need previous experience (My FREE audiobBook will give you the full basics and how to get set-up, ready to go in NO TIME)
Lastly, you DON'T need "Black magic" or "weird tricks" to make those 4-5 figures every month, it is possible and I'll show you how .
The only thing that's standing between you and absolute financial freedom is the right knowledge .

Week 3 of Shelter in place…
I recently enrolled in a free online class through Coursera: The Science of Well-Being. While I am keenly interested in the subject matter (and the topic of Positive Psychology), I must admit, I was also excited to take a class offered by Yale University. Attending an Ivy League College was one of those bucket list items I thought had passed me by. 🙂
The class basically sheds light on the fact that we often want (and pursue) what doesn’t necessarily make us happy … and we ignore what science proves will make us happy. Exercise falls in the latter category. And it is something I consistently put off. 🏃🏼♀️
I used to think exercise was punishment for eating a poor diet. Or it was another way to shame me that I am not good enough.
But yesterday I journaled through this block and realized at the age of 60… WHO CARES?!
I may not run the fastest or walk the farthest or be the most coordinated. But if I want to live a longer, healthier life, then I need to learn to embrace exercise and not shy away from it.
I created a schedule for the week, which included Yoga, walking the dogs, and an evening stroll through the neighborhood. I was excited to embark on this new routine.
And of course this morning I woke up with lower back pain. 😕
The old Molly would take this as a sign. “It wasn’t meant to be,” I’d reason.
“I can always start tomorrow - or next week - or next month” (see, I’m a pro at rationalizing and putting it off).
But tonight I rallied against those thoughts and decided to move. I didn’t care how fast (or slow) — how long (or short). I was going to move because I owed myself the opportunity to embrace what will make me happy.
And as an added bonus… Hero even embraced my new routine. Rather than bark incessantly (like usual) he peacefully rested while I walked at a slightly slower pace and listened to a delightful new podcast. 🎧

maybe this cage
has been a cocoon
little did I know that when I thought my world was falling apart, it was actually all coming together.
it takes hindsight for these kinds of revelations.
it’s all about perspective babe. 🤍
I think I just died a little.
When I read a post in my online community last week it made me realize it was time to get my shit together. I haven’t “really” worked out in over a month. I caught a crappy cold in mid-February and it took me forever to get over it. Then my work schedule was weird, and the world around us started changing dramatically. The most I could bring myself to do was go for a walk or some occasional yoga or piyo. As things feel like we are sort of settling into this new “normal” I knew it was time to get moving again. Since the “I don’t have time” excuse is null and void at this point, I decided it was time to go back to the hardest program I’ve ever done, 80 Day Obsession.
Are you feeling the monotony too? Missing a community that holds you accountable to your health and wellness? Wishing your home workouts were truly designed to be done in your home? I’ve got your back 😉 You’ve been watching my journey for over 4 years, so trust me when I tell you that helping you is really helping me too! My inbox is always open 📥 #pineapples

Night before full Moon......
Rumi is whispering again...." Moon is telling you the secrets...Don't go back to sleep...."
This full moon is Historical.... Sky is free from aeroplanes, roads are almost empty, beaches have only roaring waves, snow covered mountain peaks are shining bright, wildlife is coming alive, energies are getting more magical and mysteries are getting more mysterious!! Almost Entire Civilization of planet Earth is in Quarantine!!
I think.... it's happening for the first time and I pray that it's the last time too!! Love doesn't need any open door, the window of your heart should be open. Maybe we used our brains too much.... Universe is teaching a new lesson, mandatory one and even now in this condition too, we are not ready to understand. “This being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor......
Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”~ ~Mawlana Jalal-al-Din Rumi
One adventurous year around the sun with you my magical, energetic, joyful babe ☀️ Musings from one year of motherhood...
☀️ nothing is permanent.
☀️ rest when the opportunity arises. ☀️ the dishes/house cleaning/etc can wait.
☀️ it is safe for my inner child to come out and play (frequently).
☀️ nourish mind, body and spirit, you deserve to honour you while growing and evolving in this new phase of being and being needed by a tiny person.
☀️ I wasn’t busy before you were born... I was just really good at procrastinating.
☀️ I can be efficient and effective with time management.
☀️ my relationships with my husband, step-kids and friends are vital and require nurturing too.
☀️ I have the capacity to love more than I ever thought was possible.
☀️ life is fun and amazing and abundant and to be cherished in each and every moment.
☀️ I am grateful beyond words to be your Mumma.
Hi everyone!! I'm back... How's everyone doing through the stragest time of our lives??? It's been a weird few weeks for me I'm sure I'll go in further why I've been so distant in coming posts and videos. But it's mainly been due to a lack of motivation and "blaming" Co-Vid19 for not getting my arse into gear.
I feel like I've got all the negative energy out of my system and I'm back to being me again. It feels great.
I've not got much to say at the moment but I was determined to put a post out today, just to get back into a routine and get back to normaility.
I've decided to do my own 14 day challenge trying to accomplish 10 things. I've gone in with the mindset that if this quarantine ended in 2 weeks (unlikely, but you never know), what would I be happy with accomplishing. And I came up with 10 things.
Ome thing that I've learnt in the last 2 weeks is that regardless of the world stopping for co-vid 19, time doesn't stop and I'm not wasting anymore of it.
I'm aiming to release a podcast on Wednesday (Fingers crossed) and will dive deeper into what I'm doing to keep sane and the 10 things I want to do on my 14 day challenge.
If anyones up for doing their own challenge and needs some motivation, let me know and we can do it together, or as a group!
