Crazy low right!?

Guest Post from Miranda Allen: I Hired a Life Coach

Today on the blog, my client, Miranda Allen, is sharing her story. I was so excited when she reached out about life coaching earlier this year. She had so many of the fundamental building blocks in place, but she needed an outside perspective to help steer her towards her true self and heartfelt desires. The rest of this post is in her words!

What is the Difference Between Setting Goals & Setting Intentions?

This week let's go big with Intentions! This is a long lesson but trust me it's an impactful one! Setting a daily intention is something I challenge myself to each day. It helps set the tone for my day and feel as though I am accomplishing something worthwhile each day. Before I jump into all of this - first I want to draw attention to the difference between Intentions and Goals.

First up a Veggilicious Paleo Shepherd’s Pie that is absolutely delicious and going to become a regular must have meal for us.

Ladies Living on Purpose Feature

Stories of Empowering Women

Overcomers who are leaning into their adversity as a way to rise up in life.
I am just getting this off the ground but I see it giving so much hope, inspiration, and strength to people all over the world🙏

This is a project near and dear to my heart. Throughout the years of trauma and adversity in my own life, I came to find that sometimes hearing powerful stories of other women facing adversity gave me hope and strengthened my spirit to maintain a positive outlook and persevere through. 

As time went on I came to realize we all have a story, we all face pain and adversity… and in sharing those stories we feel more connected, more empowered to rise above what tries to knock us down. With this powerful realization the idea for Ladies Living on Purpose was born. 

This is a place for me to share stories of wildly empowering women. To highlight overcomers and true warriors in life who have not only leaned into their adversity, struggle, & pain, but have maintained a positive outlook....have used it to rise up and live more intentionally in their life.

My hope is that in sharing this we will be able to inspire others to find the power in their own story. Help people realize that while pain doesn’t have to be our purpose… it can serve some purpose. It can empower people going through tough times to find the strength and perseverance to not only get through it, but to use it as a platform for transformative change in life. 

It will enable more and more people to tap into the personal power they have over their own life so they can truly LIVE & THRIVE in their life. 

With that I am honored to share the story of one of our first features... Meet our  Lady Living on Purpose, Bridget here…

Starting A Lifestyle Business

Live your Passion

Truth talk….for most of my life I lived in survival mode. What do I mean by this? Oh you know I followed the path I thought I was “supposed” to follow.  Went to the college, got the job, put 110% into the job, was in the comfortable relationship, bought the house… and while on the outside it looked like things were great… internally I felt completely empty. Like something was off and that there had to be something more. Sound familiar!? If so please read on because this post is FOR YOU!
