Since I have allowed myself to feel my pain, fears and doubts, I can’t believe it’s been about a week and I’m still processing a lot of my emotions. In the past, within a day, I’m over it, but if you’re following from last weeks Morning Café, we know that I’m human and getting over certain things so quickly is not truth. In today’s video, I talk about holding down emotions and clinging to whatever makes us feel better in the moment, otherwise known as our training wheels. But eventually,

I wasn’t always a yogalista. My journey with yoga didn’t start off so pleasantly at all. I hated it the first time around, some 8 years ago and I really hated it 2 years later. But as I became determined to explore regular activity that worked for me and didn’t bore me, I fell back to yoga one last time and immersed myself even deeper by learning more about it; like that fact that there are several minority, plus sized women who also practice yoga. This third time around, I

Last week I learned about letting go. If you’re following me on Facebook, you may have read about my ‘meltdown Monday’. I blamed my meltdown on the stranger, but upon reflection, I blame it on my tendency to hold back and suppress my feelings. I lean towards staying strong and having faith and keeping doubt and fear out of my mind, when all the while, I’ve been needing to let go. The truth is, I have been extremely fearful and doubtful and unsure; combined with a lack of confidence and

Happy New Month! As we officially embark on month number five of 2017, it’s hard to believe that we’re already, almost halfway through the year! Despite my circumstances, I would say I’m handling things extremely well and remaining faithful that my ‘someday’ will be coming soon. My new coffee mug (seen above) has been a big help! It has definitely been a year for transition. I’m making it a habit to do things I’ve never done, in an effort to live a life I’ve never lived. It has certainly caused

I always gain perspective when I meet and speak to women who look like they have it all together, but are suffering and struggling and facing daily challenges we don’t even know about. There are people in this world who assume that because you drive a nice car, wear nice clothes, are married with kids and work a 6-figure job that you have it all together and that you’re living the fabulous life. But in a lot of cases, nothing could be farther from the truth and I am no

One day while I was racking my brain trying to figure out what to do to keep a client happy and how to get another client to pay a bill that was passed due, I came to the end of my rope and my mind opened up and everything became clear. Not to mention, a huge weight lifted off my shoulders as I finally made the decision to stop trying to make everybody happy. I never realized it, but somewhere along my journey in life and business, I became a

I often look in the mirror and see someone who is cute, pretty, beautiful sometimes even sexy, but one day in the process of subconscious thought, I looked in the mirror and there she was, ugly Sandra. Ugly Sandra is the side of me that thinks she is actually better than some people: better educated, better employed, better family, better friends. Or the side of me that can date a guy for months and when I get bored I slowly but surely pull away. Or the side of me that

If you’re struggling to succeed and move beyond your current position in life, but find yourself stuck, perhaps there is one place you haven’t looked and that’s in your morning routine. Experts agree that we are most creative and have more energy in the morning than if we try to push and be productive in the afternoon. But many of us get caught up in highly draining yet low priority work, which takes away from our ability to apply all that good fresh energy to the tasks and projects that

When I was in the ‘dream phase’ of starting my business over 10 years ago, I envisioned having a company that was well-known in North America. If being well-known in North America was a dream then the idea of having international exposure was an ever more distant dream. But believe me when I tell you that dreams do come true. Day 1: Virtually International Tamiko Cuellar, founder of Pursue Your Purpose was holding her 2nd Annual Positioned for Wealth Small Business Virtual Summit and selected me to be a part of her

Oprah Winfrey shares what she knows for sure about looking ahead: Every farewell offers an opportunity for a new hello. It doesn’t matter if you’re in Chicago, Los Angeles or anywhere in between. When one road ends, it’s time to look ahead in a new direction. And know that as far as your eye can see, the universe can see even farther. That is where we’re headed.
