Earth/Birthday Diary

Last week I celebrated my birthday in a mindset that felt different from any other year. For the first time I wasn’t looking outside of myself for happiness or what others could do for me to make this day special. In turn I released expectations and had one of my best birthdays yet. For what felt like the first time in a really long time I took a look at where I am with crystal clear vision. Celebrating a milestone that for me was so in-tune with the feeling of being comfortable in my own skin, gratitude for where I am (including all of life’s lessons that have brought me here) and proud of what I have accomplished.

Happiness is a Choice

Over the past few weeks I have been practicing feeling happy for absolute no reason. As Taylor so eloquently explained to me in one of our sessions: happiness is in the palm of your hand, it just needs your participation.

As I dedicate myself more and more to my kundalini practice (with even one minute creating undeniable shifts), I have been feeling this surge of happiness. Bringing that energy into each encounter and situation has been a lesson in the power of mindset. Happiness really is a choice we make.

I had read many wonderful things about the brand online and it was on the top of my list of products to try next so I knew that I had to go to learn more. Immediately upon meeting Valérie her warm presence and easy going personality made me feel as if I was learning from a friend I had known for years. We went through my goals for skincare products, which was to find something I could use daily that would hydrate my skin for the transition of Winter into Spring while protecting it from sun exposure and life running around the city.  Continue Reading
