Sara here!

I'm in Centralia, MO today at Brad and Callie's monthly Reclaimed sale at "The Church." It's beautifully decorated for Christmas and Brad has obviously been hard at work creating perfect gift items and stunning furniture from reclaimed wood.

I also have my bracelets here for sale! The girls have already been a big help this morning and were excited to see cousins!

Sara here. I would love your feedback.

What do you think of the idea of gift certificates?

Many of you have shared that you are planning to give these bracelets as gifts, but don't feel sure about what word to get engraved!

If, instead, you could present someone with a nice gift card with picture/s of the bracelets, the list of words, and the option to make up their own word or phrase, would that be an attractive alternative? They could get in touch then to let us know what word they wanted (on December 26th, or in January, or whenever!)

Thoughts?

Stay inspired! Take your intention with you throughout your day. These unisex bracelets make great gifts for friends, family, co-workers, employees... just don't forget yourself!

Remember to "dream" big, "be brave", "breathe", and "shine!" Take on the world with an "open heart" and "be true" to yourself.... A full list of the 30 words available is on the Etsy listing, or for a small additional fee, we will custom engrave ANY word, phrase or symbol!

So... What word would YOU CHOOSE? :)

I've been kind of quiet on FB for a few months, regarding my creative business... I've been busy subbing up at the school almost every day, and I LOVE IT!

But if you know me, you know I am always still in creative mode.

Ben and I are finally ready to announce our latest project!

I've partnered with him to create these inspiring, affirmative leather bracelets, with many of the same words you'll find in my ABC book, and we've got some other popular and inspiring words included as options also.

We wanted to provide a way to take your intention with you throughout your day. These unisex bracelets make great gifts for friends, family, co-workers, employees... just don't forget yourself!

What a fun and simple way to remember to "dream" big, "be brave", "breathe", and "shine bright!" Take on the world with an "open heart", "be true" to yourself, and show the world just how "zesty & amazing" you are! ;)

A full list of the 30 words available is below. For a small additional fee, we can custom engrave ANY word, phrase or symbol!

I'll post more details in the comments, including the Etsy link.

"Your life is yours. Never allow anyone else to dictate your path… even a former version of yourself. You don’t need an excuse to change direction. Live your truth."

For support in living YOUR TRUTH, check out my available coaching packages here:

http://www.pagepress.co/consulting.html

---

LIVE YOUR TRUTH. For me, this is one of the biggest lessons of this lifetime. I find I am still learning it in deeper ways! Sometimes the expectations I’m trying to live up to are actually my OWN. I worry that if I feel like I need to change direction from the course I originally set forth, that it makes me look like I’m “all over the place”. Which, let’s be honest I am full of ideas and I have a stack of them that I’ve yet to complete. I’m beginning to accept that part of myself as a product of my over-active creative brain, but it doesn’t change my belief that the most important thing is to live my truth. Live the life that I am meant to live. Follow creative inspiration, follow intuitive nudges, walk my authentic path. Figuring out just what that looks like means tuning in, taking care, and staying open.

I’ve also discovered that I am a catalyst for this kind of authentic, brave living in others as well, and that’s why I’m excited to be serving others through coaching and consulting.

Reach out if you are looking for that kind of 1-1 support.

“Allow your life to unfold. Have goals, but stay open, and let Life show you how the details are going to look.”

Is this hard for anyone else? I tend to think I should know how it’s all going to go down, and that I am responsible for making sure every detail fall into place. (Maybe I don’t, and maybe I’m not.)

I’m at my best when I TRUST that Life is unfolding and that I can just do my part and be along for the ride!

Stay open, friends!
Love and Light,
Sara

“True Freedom comes from within.”

No OUTER version of freedom is ultimately going to bring the sense of contentment and joy that an INNER sense of freedom can bring.

How do you get that inner sense of freedom and what does it look like? By truly letting go of attachments to material things like money, the right clothes, the right house… as well as things like what other people think about you, I believe you can achieve a sense of abundance, flow, and peace. It all originates within your own spirit.

I’m not saying I’m there yet, but I do know my goal. My goal is complete freedom! In my daily life I practice this letting go by doing my best to recognize when I am attached to something, and letting go. I’m so much better at this than I used to be. I feel more FREE than ever these days! My outer life is not perfect, although there are some pretty great elements to it! My inner life is pretty wonderful as well, and I attribute that directly to this process of letting go. I still catch myself thinking that if some element of my life were different, I would be able to feel more free. The truth is, I am free right now. I have control over my actions, and over my perception of my reality. I may not have complete travel freedom to go anywhere I want to in the world tomorrow, but I believe as I continue to do this work, that that level of outer freedom may become a reality for me!

What do you think about this? How do you define TRUE FREEDOM? Leave a comment to share your thoughts!

Lots of Love and Light,
Sara

07/15/2019

“Self-Awareness is not always affirming, but if you let it, it can be fuel for profound change.”

This probably doesn’t feel like your typical “love and light” post from me. I’m a big fan of affirmation, and often when we talk about getting to know yourself, we’re talking about discovering your hopes and dreams, what you desire, your talents and gifts. There’s another element to self-knowledge however, and that is recognizing and acknowledging the bad habits, wrong thinking, assumptions and judgement. Nobody is perfect. We know this, but yet, at least for me, it’s really hard to take a look at my imperfections. I’ve got my blind spots. I’ve got my areas of life where I need to develop skills.

The point of this post is that UNTIL you are AWARE of those areas you can’t do anything ABOUT them! There’s a distinction that I want to make here, because some imperfections are really just human qualities that we are meant to embrace, accept, and love about ourselves. If you think your nose is too big, you don’t like your voice, or you have a weird toe, these are not things that need “fixing”... I’m talking here about places in your mental, emotional and social health where some self-awareness may lead to greater connection, peace, and joy ~ if you are willing to do the work.

Did you know? Through Page Press, I’m offering life coaching by phone or by email (or even in person, if we can arrange it!) because I believe in the power of self-awareness and believe that I am a catalyst for positive change for those that are ready to embrace it. It often takes being willing to stare directly at the habits or behaviors that you like least about yourself and commit to doing it a different way. I will be a compassionate and supportive voice along the way that believes in you but will also hold you accountable to making those changes so you can live a life you love! There’s more information about the consulting and coaching I’m doing here: http://www.pagepress.co/consulting.html

"Mindset is everything."

Note to self: When you think the trouble you’re having is about something “out there”... check yourself. Mindset is everything. It starts within. Meditate. Journal. Talk to a friend. Move your body.

Get it right.

Allow Life to express FREELY through you.
Happy Independence Day! I wish you a profound sense of personal FREEDOM today and every day!

Here is an excerpt from my ABC book, from the page “F is for Freedom”:

You’re wondering what the world’s all about.
You have the Freedom to ask questions and doubt.
You have your own thoughts, you want us to hear.
You have the Freedom to say what you feel!

It’s ok to wonder. It’s ok to doubt.
It’s ok to say what you’re thinking about.
Speak from your heart. Do what you like to.
You have the Freedom to find what excites you!

Learn about yourself; discover what you like.
Say what you want, and be brave with your life!
Be your own person, and soon you will see.
It’s all up to you, so choose to be FREE!

Expect Nothing. Appreciate Everything.

This one takes a second. At first when I read this, (It’s attributed to “Anonymous” online and has been shared hundreds/thousands of times on the web) I didn’t fully take in the beauty of this concept.

To me, this represents an approach to life that is easily delighted, and rarely gets deeply disappointed. Sure, life will bring disappointments, even tragedies, and I am not saying that life will always be pleasant.

In fact, that’s kind of the point! To expect that life will always go your way is to ensure your expectations will not be met.

First of all, to expect that things will sometimes go your way and other times you’ll be on the losing end of the stick, is to let go of attaching your emotional well-being to the outcome of any situation.

Secondly, to come from a position of appreciating everything, is to adopt the famed “attitude of gratitude” and approach life with wonder and amazement for the gifts in your life!

I love this 4-word philosophy for how to be happy. It works wonders!

"Believe in your capacity to do the thing you think you cannot do."

Take that voice in your head, examine what it’s saying from a critical ear, and then turn it into a challenge.

We all have those limiting voices. That part of us that is worried about failure will try to protect us by saying “It can’t be done.” Is that true? Has it been done in the past? If so, then why not by you, too? It’s never been done? Why can’t you be the first?

Chances are, with enough creativity and perseverance, you are capable of so much more than that voice is telling you you are.

Is it true that absolutely anyone can do absolutely anything they can dream of in the Universe? I’m okay with saying that there may be some limits to that claim.

Personal angle: I’m not going to be the new world record holder for running a marathon or a 100-yard sprint. I’m just not. I may, however, with enough consistent work, be able to reach new personal records on a 5K or 10K that I can be proud of! It’s not important to me to be the fastest human on the planet. It’s not my dream so it’s really okay. It IS my goal, however, to get back in shape and feel like an athlete again. I’ve let myself get to a place (again! urrg…) where I sacrifice exercise and healthy eating for sluggish movement and eating whatever I can get my hands on. It’s easy to live the laptop life and let those self-care things fade to the background. The result is that I don’t feel amazing in my skin every day, and I want to! That voice tells me “You always do this. You can’t keep weight off. You can’t be consistent with a healthy lifestyle. There’s something wrong with you!”

Is that true? NO. NONE of that is true.

I do see the potential, I’ve been there in the past, and I’m tired of the swings, the ups and downs of it all. So with some new commitment and consistent action, I know I can live the lifestyle that will give me more of that feeling I’m after! I have some work to do on my beliefs in this area.

Where do you have limiting beliefs and are you ready to believe in your capacity to do the thing you think you cannot do?

“Keep Giving, Keep Learning, Stay Open, Stay Brave!”

This is a quote from the final page of my ABC book! Z is for Zesty:

“You have a unique and zesty appeal.
I sure hope that this is how you feel.

That you are amazing, yes the bright shiny you,
Give us your inner brilliance, that’s all you need to do!

In case through this book, you still haven’t heard it,
We need it, we want it, it doesn’t have to be perfect!

So stay super zesty, keep riding this wave.
Keep giving, keep learning, stay open, stay brave!”

Sometimes “No” is the hardest word to say. It becomes super important when you know it’s making room for a bigger “Yes”.

"Pursue your true self relentlessly."

Go after knowledge of the deepest aspects of yourself. Grow closer and closer to expressing from your true nature. I promise it’s worth it.

You’re worth it.

With every decision you make you are creating your own reality.

To me, creativity is so much more than painting, singing, dancing, writing, etc. We are all creative beings, and we are “creating” in every moment.

Sometimes I feel like I am not in control, and that life is happening TO ME. Then I remember that while life is happening the way it is happening, I am also interpreting and experiencing my life a certain way, and the thoughts and actions that I choose make a difference.

The little things add up to the big things! How I show up in any given situation absolutely has an effect on my future. What I eat, how ~ or if ~ I move my body, how much sleep I get; these things all add up to a big effect on my health. That’s just one example. The focus and attention I give to my career on a daily basis has a big effect on my success, obviously! My authenticity and courage in personal relationships will make a difference in the depth of connection I feel with others.
What choices can you make that will help create the reality you desire?

Lots of Love and Light,
Sara
