Impact and Empower, Creatively

The last month has been quite rough. I have so many goals that came to a screeching halt with a car accident that left me pretty banged up. Anyway, I was working on an exercise to build my mission statement. The second I had it created, intuitively, I fell in love. I have decided to create a program surrounding it at some point soon.

I LOVE THIS!

Anyway, I am working on adding more services. Personal Coaching, Business Coaching, Oracle and Tarot Readings, Toe Reading, Aromatherapy, Holistic Nutrition, Health and Wellness Coaching, etc. Tons and tons of plans for 2018. There are 2 new groups created on Facebook: Holistic Healing Through Soulful Creativity and Nutrition and Mindful Eating for Long Term Health and Weight Release. Feel free to join both! We are just starting out but the more the merrier!

I think that I have also decided to add my journey to my blog as well. I will have separate folders for each post for easier searching, but I think that this is what is best for me and this journey. It makes me hold myself accountable and create better habits to make this blog an everyday thing. Plus, I’m sure that people would like to know who they’re talking to!

Haha. Anyway. That is all for tonight. Join the groups! Share them! They’ll be AMAZING!
