Look for opportunities, not gossips.
Focus on your personal growth.
Don't only learn from success stories but focus on failure stories too.
Fake it till you make it, be confident.
Always be on time. ⌚
Most importantly no one is perfect and there is always room for improvement. 🆒 #mindset#positivity#setgoals#setthevibe#worksmart#focus
Diffuse all the oils!!!! I love, love, LOVE having a diffuser in my classroom. ⠀
⚗️Diffusing is beneficial for everyone! Pop some water, add a few drops of desired oil, turn it on, then bam 💥. Happiness is being blasted into the air.⠀
⚗️ Diffusing oils allows everyone in the room to reap the benefits. Diffusing Thieves? Everyone will get some immune support. Diffusing gentle baby? Everyone will get a dose of “calm the heck down”. Diffusing citrus fresh? Everyone will get a mood boost. Diffusing also helps to clean the air. Happy class room happy teacher + students. ⠀
⚗️ You can even diffuse some oils to help with focus. Lemon + peppermint or GenYus, is great for focus. Diffusing oils is the easiest way to use oils. Diffusing oils can even set the tone of your room. Want to make it warm & cozy? Want to make it bright & cheery? Want to make it woodsy? The options are endless!⠀
⚗️ Since I work in early childhood education, I use a lot of calming oils around nap time. Lots of citrus oils during diaper changes. Thieves before & after students have left. ⠀
⚗️The diffuser shown above is the one I have in my classroom, it’s the Feather the Owl diffuser. I like it since it works as a diffuser, night light(various color options), white noise machine (various sound options), & a humidifier all in one! Plus it comes with a 5 ml bottle of lavender. Hello calm & relaxed classroom 😉.⠀
We all know we learn best when we are relaxed. ⠀
Keep your classroom calm, cool, collected, & smelling great all day long! You’ll have the best smelling classroom in the whole building with your diffuser!

I remember the first time I heard this concept several years ago. I was reading Big Magic by @elizabeth_gilbert_writer for the first time (yes, I've read/listened to that book well over 30 times. If you havent read it, I highly recommend you do) and I realized I had been doing that without really knowing it.
I would light a candle, put on the right music, and sit down with a great cup of coffee. The vibe was right and I'd totally get into the zone. I even did this when I was in my 9-5 when I really needed to concentrate in on a project.
After hearing that Liz said in Big Magic, I made the choice to step it up a notch by inserting a shitload of intentional living into the mix.
Now when I need to have a killer creative session, I get dressed up. I always get dressed, do my hair, and put on make up but on days I want to create I do more, almost like I'm going to be recording or doing photos.
I choose a cute, comfy top and warm comfortable pants. Top it off with fuzzy socks. I make sure I'm full, light my candles, grab my water and coffee, clear my mind with a little meditation or brain dump journalling session, put on my favorite "background music" playlist and get into the zone!
Do I do this every day? No I. But most days, yes. I choose to romance the fuck out of my creativity. I choose to set the mood for myself to enjoy my day, calls, writing, whatever is on the agenda.
It clears SO much space and allows so much flow to arrive and come through me into my work, out of my mouth, and through my fingers onto the paper.
So if you're just not feeling inspired or having a hard time getting in the zone to create or simply do your work in general... try romancing yourself and see what happens😉
You might be plesantly surprised!

Headed out in a few, or......maybe not😏
Wine note: I searched for this wine for the last 2 years from 1st tasting it at Andiamos for a wine tasting. My wine connect found it Friday. Sweet, red, a slight fiz it's only 8% alchohol but I'm telling you there's no way the mood will not be SEXY with glasses of this. Sangue Di Giuda
Preferable panty you should sip in is a cheeky lace bakini😊

🕯Screaming PEACE by PATRICE is here!!!!! 🕯
I‘ve shared on the podcast and in my YouTube videos how much I believe in having a sacred space where you can be still and rejuvenated, as well as, how I feel about being able to set the tone in your environment.
One of the ways I’ve always done that is by keeping candles all over my home to remind me that this is my safe space and sanctuary.
Last year @brittanyingrambeauty gifted me with candles by @intuition.la and I began buying them buy the dozens (literally). 🙈 (Candles are my kryptonite . . . Along with journals and planners 🤷🏾♀️)
1. Because they smelled amazing, and 2. Because I wanted to support a Black female owned business who was committed to her community over a big box retailer who doesn’t care ANYTHING about me or my dollars. 💅🏾
So after a 1.5 yrs of buying her scent “Leimert Park” which pays homage to where I’m from, the owner, @alexandria.greenwood and I decided that we should collaborate on a scent that truly represents what I value and teach via #RedefiningWealth .
And after months of pining over what represents the calm, tranquility, clarity and peace that I wanted to have in my space and share with others, PEACE by Patrice Washington was born! 🙏🏾💖
I told Alix that if not one soul buys, I’m excited to have MY own scent that brings me to a place of peace and gratitude when I meditate daily or need to focus on the next project. ◽️
I think we should all have a “vibe manipulator” as my boy, @therealkellycardenas, calls it; something to ground us and remind us that no matter what, we get to choose our day. ◽️
Really grateful that each day I get to choose and create the space for my own PEACE. 🙏🏾

Everything in the universe has a vibration - including your home. Our homes are living power spots with energy that mirrors our own. It can be a focus point for magic and power. Our homes can attract and repel energy and have the ability to raise the vibration of everyone who crosses its threshold. Although we give our attention to how our home looks, we must notice how our home feels. Your intentions, prayers and blessings can be directed towards your home space. You have the power to create the energy you want in your surroundings. You can create Heaven on Earth at home.
I’m wrapping up this heart centered month by sharing my house blessing practices to fill up your home with LOVE. Pouring love energy into my home is a treasured daily practice of mine. I do it to honor my home and all of the blessings its brought in, for my family so that they may sit in love’s grace and protection and for me so that I feel nourished and renewed. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter to read all about it- it drops into your inbox TONIGHT. Sign up link in my profile.
A special love blast to Energy Worker, @kimbellisimo for teaching so much about setting my home space for the past 11 years. I’m a conscious houseKEEPER because of you❤️
