It is true. We read their books and admire all that they know, but we are no less. The difference is that these wise people took the time to mine their inner world; their thoughts and feelings, to discover new truths. A simple way of slowing down and connecting with the wisdom within is to spend time alone. Leave your headphones, and your phone, behind. Walk in nature with only your ‘self’. Witness the miracles you discover by simply observing. Instead of borrowing wisdom from books, find it. There is only so much we can take from words anyway. Language is a limited connector that leaves much out. It is why the Upanishads were written in metaphor. It is why the Buddha said that he was not a teacher. Some things must be experienced to be fully learned. You have everything in you to become a wise sage. . . . . . . #meditation #wisdom #seeker #truth #bestill #gowithin #thirdeye #wise #sage #philosophy #epiphany #greatness #discipline #nature #weareone #wellness #joy #happiness #goodmorning #inspirationalspeaker #motivationalspeaker #vegan #vegansofig #positivequotes #positivity #buddha #buddhist #language
My 6 am breakfast dates! Perched atop my desk, these lovelies keep me company as I start my miracle mornings. This is new for me. I would never see 6 am unless I absolutely had to. Recently, something clicked. How can I convince myself that I don’t have enough time to do the things I want when I am sleeping my mornings away?  This small change has already begun to yield some great outcomes. What time are you waking up to the world these days? . . . . . #goodmorning #miraclemorning #6am #weekend #saturdayvibes #happyday #cantstopwontstop #success #goals #successclub #entrepreneur #dreams #dreambig #vision #vegansofig #vegan #speaker #motivationalspeaker #femalespeaker #inspirationalspeaker #transformation #habits #discipline #hardwork #hustle
Enjoy the little things. They are, after all, the big things.
Make this your mantra as you embark on a new day, making little and big decisions throughout. Perhaps oats over a bagel for breakfast? Hitting the gym instead of the movies? Keep your eye on the prize and make conscious choices that steer you closer to your goals. It all starts now. . . . . #motivation #positivity #positivequotes #success #successclub #selfmade #neversettle #hardwork #vegan #vegansofinstagram #speaker #motivationalspeaker #womeninmedia #momtrepreneur #hardworkpaysoffs #hustle #hustlehard #dreams #goals #wellness #joy #happiness #gym
Throwback to last summer when I represented Amazon Kindle at the National Spelling Bee at the @gaylordnational ! Celebrating this occasion because I just booked another speaking job at the same venue.

A beautiful venue and an epic love story. Our cousin was born blind, and although he cannot see his new wife, he can still feel the love. Truly happy for this amazing couple.🎉❤️💍🙏🏼 . . . . . #wedding #party #firstdance #roses #loveislove #lovestory #epicwedding #heartstory #marriott @marriotthotels #punjabiwedding #partytime #reception #familytime #joy #happiness #womeninmedia #speaker #indianwedding #bouquet #centerpieces #events #marriage
Note to self.  We could all use this as a reminder to be easy on ourselves. Life is full of struggles, one to the next. For each of us. We were not born with instructions. We are figuring it all out one situation at a time. Monitor your inner dialog and be easy on yourself. Handle with love. . . . . . . #mindful #positivethinking #selfcare #wellness #joy #goodhabits #positivevibes #motivation #inspiration #inspirationalquotes #vegan #vegansofig #signs #speaker #womeninmedia #femalespeaker #transformation #truth #love #bekind #wisdom #lifelessons #success #successclub #communication
Up at 6. Connected with gratitude. Made some tea. Worked. Worked out. At one point I found myself here, blessed with this bowl of Vietnamese soba noodles. Feeding your temple a whole food, plant-based diet is one simple way of honoring your existence. . . . . . . #vegan #vegansofig #wellness #health #joy @barkingmadcafe #soba #vietnamesefood #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #iphonex #tofu #eatwell #speaker #womeninmedia #femalespeaker #selflove #positivity #motivation #inspiration #meatless #govegan #healthyfood #sobanoodles #veganfood #veganfoodshare
Before your mind gets in the way and you start to doubt yourself, take the first step. Before you listen to the negativity of others and start making excuses, take the first step. Lead with action. Take that step and watch how quickly you start to believe in yourself. This is a note to myself that I have visited throughout today. After a series of setbacks, this is the mindset I choose to adopt. Don’t let anything hold you back, especially YOU. . . . . . . #womeninmedia #hustle #newgame #newgoals #goals #dreams #achievers #success #successclub #wellness #positivevibes #positivequotes #inspiration #determination #vegansofig #vegan #speaker #femalespeakers #perseverance #gym #health #hardwork #nevergiveup
The secret to staying young is to stay curious. My latest hook is the ukelele! While I can hear fans at the local bar down the street cheering on their favorite sports team, I am in my room strummin’ some tunes.

Simple, classy, and happy. The weather has something to do with it. We went from 30 degree weather to 90 degree weather in a matter of days. I am ready to not complain about the heat this summer.

I received this card in the mail from a woman who may become my coach. I consider myself a coach in certain areas, but I could sure use help in others. When we are young we are taught math, science, geography, etc., but none of the ‘in between’ stuff. Like confidence. Or empathy, compassion, community, and love. As adults, we can recognize where we need help and seek it from those who have mastered it. Just because you graduated from the system’s school it does not mean that your education has ended. You are learning every day. Finding a mentor or a coach will make the process more enjoyable. . . . . . . . . #communication #coaching #coach #confidence #confidencecoach #speaker #speakpositive #speakerlife #positivevibes #motivation #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #greetingcards #quotes #motivationalquotes #wellness #joy #happiness #lifeisshort #lifecoach #mentor #vegan #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram
Bringing the outdoors in with these beautiful flowers. What a week! From delivering a speech to auditioning for a gig, I have earned this weekend.

Because where there is pain, there is growth. After almost a week away from the gym due to being sick and pulling a muscle in my neck, I am glad to be back. The soreness of a workout becomes an addiction. A good one though.. . . . . . . . . . . #gym #workout #getfit #vegansofig #vegan #gymtime #lifetimeathletic #cardio #healthy #health #fitness #goodhabits #goals #fitnessgoals #womeninmedia #speaker #speakerlife #communication #media #communicationscoach #success #successclub #hardwork #hustle #workforit #nopainnogain #wellness #joy #feeltheburn
