It's true that saying "No" to people is a risk. We might hurt someone’s feelings, disappoint someone we look up to or care about, or people might just decide we’re being selfish. But not honoring ourselves puts us at risk too. When we say “Yes” instead of the “No” we really want to say, the weight of the resentments, regrets, and obligations we carry around as a result can lead us into a downward spiral of negative self-talk, anxiety, and questions about our own self-worth.
This presentation provides powerful knowledge and insight into the art of only taking on commitments that fit with you, your lifestyle, and your highest values, and that feel balanced and truly authentic.
Best Audiences: This topic is for people who struggle with: • Figuring out how to say “No” with no regrets • Over-committing by always saying “Yes” even when “No” is the right answer • Finding the energy and inspiration to start filling their life with “yeses” that feel right both personally and professionally

I am a mom who was trying to find her way.
With twins and a younger child just 14 months apart in age, I was neck deep in diapers with NO time for anything, myself included. Despite that, my children became catalysts for my journey into personal development—a spiritual wake-up call if you will that I wouldn't trade for the world. I learned how to be present and calmer amidst life’s storms, and how imperative self-care is, not only for parents and caregivers, but for everybody.
I speak honestly from my experience so people can see what can happen when you give yourself permission to start moving self-care up your priority list. I know first-hand that life is messy and can be really rough at times too, but each of us can embrace the practice of creating our day rather than merely surviving it. Our own unique story/path gives us the right to be badasses right NOW rather than waiting for the perfect “someday” that never shows up.
We need reasons to remember that there is beauty and laughter in life too… often times amidst the most painful times in our lives. It’s our conscious efforts that can make the difference in how we’re going to feel at the end of any experience… that and learning how to give ourselves permission to laugh our way through life's obstacles. Being able to love ourselves through those times, and to continue to show up in our lives in spite of them is what it's all about. Knowing you're not alone and that there are others to laugh with and lean on is where much magic resides too.
So I invite you to join me in this journey to keep it real, to let s**t go, and to hold YOU as your first priority—because we're all hot messes as much as we are successes.
