Dear Creative,

During my 2-week extraordinary vacation to Rome and Amalfi Coast, I, like all others, chose to include my communities of friends, clients, family and acquaintances for this bucket list experience.

My intention is always to inspire when I post anything on social media. It has been my intention since social media came into our lives back in 2007-2008.

I taught this back then as a social media expert in the first iteration of my coaching business coming off of 20 years as an entertainment publicist.

The social media intention is always, “What can I post to inspire others to have more hope and joy?”

Sept 19-Oct 2, 2022 was no different. Comments flooded in on my Instagram and FB dream-worthy photo posts of ancient Rome, stunning Sorrento, Capri, Positano, Ravello, and magical Vico Equense, a small charming coastal town I stayed in for eight days.

Comments like, “You are on my dream trip. Thanks for the inspiration!” “I’ve always had Positano on my travel list. How wonderful!” “Larger than life beautiful Italy is. Walking on roads that are thousands of years old.” “Loved your blooper stories!! They brought your experience to life! Travel is so much about getting through these unique experiences with a smile!” “YAY, YAY, YAY. And even the clouds parted to welcome you. Bellissima.” “Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos, brought back great memories of this beautiful island of Capri.” 

A few blog articles back, I wrote about Transformational Travel is a Thing in reference to my love of travel and how I integrate it into my brand to inspire others to live an expanded version of their lives. Consider this a follow up to that article having just returned from those two remarkable weeks.

As the days unfold here back at home, I intentionally seek ways to change my habits, behaviors and mindset due to the travel experience that always affects my soul and perspective on life.

So far, I have a refreshed and upleveled passion for my desires and goals while inspiring humanity even more. Each time I travel to Italy, it’s the same result – mindset and action changes going forward.

Over the next few weeks, you will be the recipient of these changes when I share photos of the trip and new ways of upleveling your own desires and goals.

Perhaps, even a deeper look at redesigning your life on some level that will help you live more vibrantly and joyfully!

Let’s start with intending a miraculous month by taking a few minutes each morning by celebrating yourself, your accomplishments, your commitment to a quality life and relationships, your spiritual growth, your creativity, and all the effort every day you put out to make a difference in the world through your business or career.  

Let’s also celebrate how much you really care about making life less difficult for others just by your empathy and compassion. 

I desire for you to truly stop the busyness for a few moments each day to be grateful for your life and all your large and small successes and yes, challenges.

Celebrate you and whatever higher power you are in relationship with that helps you navigate all of this. Miracles are real every day when you have a belief this is so.

We all want success on many levels. Success in my world is based on living your values with integrity. In other words, when we make decisions and choices daily based on what we say we value, we are living our life, not someone else’s.

It follows then it’s in our best interest to define what is our top 10 values we want to live by that makes us feel certain, confident, authentic, inspired, clear, and empowered.

For years I have committed to a list of my top 10 values and post them next to my workspace to see every day as a reminder. What’s on your list? Furthermore, watch how your decision-making changes when you use this list as a GPS for living a joyful, congruent life.

My intention is H.O.P.E.  – Helping others prosper and evolve with joy, grace and ease.

I’ll end with this well-known quote credited by many global leaders as Gandhi, Lao-Tzu, Margaret Thatcher’s father and more. Take these to heart – this is in some way how I accomplished another two-week vacation from my bucket list which was highlighted by visiting Capri, Italy. (A long time desire!)

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”

What’s on your travel bucket list? I encourage you to finally let go of all the reasons why you have to wait. Plan it now. Do it.

I began in April planning and made it a reality by August with all details paid for and ready to go. You can, too.

I am here for you. Is a new life design on your list? Email me to schedule a talk about my life design intuitive session. Let’s get started on your next chapter.

To your joy!
