They seem so unrelated, right?
Super sexy and feminine.
Agressive and more masculine energy.
But both of these Experiences are about Power.
I am doing a boudoir shoot in May.
Two days after I turn 49.
It will be my third shoot in 3 years, but I did my first one just before turning 40.
The initial one was the FIRST time I saw myself as sexy.
But then it quickly went away again.
Kids. Practice. Stress. Not putting me first.
Not investing in our Marriage.
Then 2 years ago, I decided to shoot again.
This time, it was POWER and embracing my sexuality and truly loving my Body.
Excited to shoot again to access more of this in May.
So what does Boxing have to do with this??????
I am training to finally compete in my first boxing tournament in June.
I have been trained for over a year and a half.
I fucking LOVE the Power in this, and feel I was born a Fighter.
My body has gained speed and strength and certainty in being able to defend myself in and outside the ring.
As a Woman, that is incredibly Powerful.
There is also a mental and emotional Power that is accessed with how present and certain I need to be and my ability to take a punch.
BOTH Experiences bring me Power.
BOTH Experiences make me feel Alive.
BOTH Experiences are ME.
When I accepted and acknowledged both sides of me,
is when the Alignment and Love for myself began.
There are many sides of you, too.
They are ALL of you.
Express ALL of them.
And step into the Powerful Being you were designed to be.
P.S. Do you want to learn how to Access More Power and Align with Who You Are?

It’s not your Fault, Sister.
That you have believed the Lies about Marriage…..
That your Husband should just know what you want, and be able to read your Mind.
That you shouldn’t fight in Marriage. That’s wrong.
That Marriage shouldn’t require work and investing in each other beyond birthdays and your anniversary.
It’s not your fault that you have believed the Lies about Motherhood.
That Motherhood should just come naturally.
That you should want to spend every moment and dollar on your kids and not you.
That sacrificing yourself and who you are as a Mother is honourable and good.
It’s not your fault that you believed the Lies about Business.
That as a Woman, it’s easy to bring home the bacon, care for you kids, and be the sex kitten in the bedroom.
That you will feel the pull to be in Business AND be with your kids, and that you can easily switch out your Mom Hat for your Creator and Producer Hat.
That your choice to be All In in Business will not be judged by others, who still revere the stay at home Mom.
It’s not your fault that you believed the Lies about your Body.
That because you’ve had babies or are a certain age, that your body will fall apart.
That you can use fatigue as an excuse to not care for yourself, joke about wine being Mommy juice, and that your ‘just’ daily glass is actually 2, 3, or the entire bottle.
That you should hate your body and never feel Enough.
It’s not your Fault that you’ve believed those Lies.
However if you keep believing them, it is.
Smash the roles that have been thrust onto us as Women.
And define who YOU want to be as a Wife, Mom, Business Woman, and Powerful Female.
See, the Lies are meant to keep you down.
To give up. To stay small. To not speak your Voice.
Fuck the Lies.
Choose to Rise instead.
For the longest time, mine was THIS;
People don’t understand Me.
I carried that one around for decades.
Since I was a Kid.
Because, you know, I’m the youngest, and have 2 older brothers.
Because people think I’m bossy and not a leader when I speak up (because I’m female).
Because no one has walked in my shoes.
BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT.
The truth was,
I didn’t want to let people in.
it was easier to play the Rebel, the Fuck-You Girl.
It was easier to create the Story and the Wall to keep people out.
So I played on the surface.
I didn’t share who I really was.
I held back and played small.
Because, remember…..people don’t understand me
I don’t live my Life with regret.
I believe there are Lessons in EVERYTHING for us to see.
However, the Cost of this Wall,
was a lot of friendships, possible opportunities, and TIME.
Time that I can never get back.
Time that I did not Live me life as fully 100% ME.
Even though I was (and am) that extroverted person.
Most would never have thought I was playing small.
But I was.
If there is anything you can do with the 28 days you have left in 2016 if THIS:
TEAR YOUR FUCKING WALL DOWN.
Blow it Up.
Take a jackhammer to it.
And open yourself up to living Life as ALL YOU, Baby.
It’s not as scary as you think.
People will always love or hate you.
You may as well live your life as YOU,
and BE FREE.
Love and appreciate YOU,
