Self-Care

Reflections From Portland

Reflections From Portland

Every day, I learn how important it is to take care of myself.  

It’s more than doing the fun activities.

How we think, feel, and act during those activities determines the level of self-care.

Pushing yourself past the point of exhaustion is not self-care.

Thinking/evaluating past interactions or the future of what still has to be done during pleasurable moments is also not self-care.

I learn that more every single day.

Running a business has been a roller coaster of emotions and learning to deal with everything that has not been healed.

Many lessons have been and will be learned, which is a crucial part of life’s experience.

One Step At a Time

One Step At a Time

Do you feel like you want to go from 0 to 100 in every aspect of your life?

You feel like you want a quick fix to everything.

It can range from having a meal ready for you immediately before you need to go to your next activity.

It can be losing those last 10 lbs in a week.

It can be having your business blow up overnight.

Whatever it is, it takes time to get there and tons of support.

2017 is officially over. I am taking these moments to reflect on everything I have learned in the past year.

It has been a year of many life changes.

Many of which I would say was far out of my comfort zone.

I decided to make these changes in my life because I am committed to expanding my consciousness.

This will help me live my life happier, healthier, and with a greater purpose.

I have been evaluating every area of my life to see how to balance my life.

It’s time to get honest with myself here.

Am I A Fraud?

Am I A Fraud?

I love being a health coach! I’ve received such wonderful opportunities to meet amazing, like minded souls! I was a vendor at an expo for the first time and I loved every minute of it. I felt like I was in my element by teaching people about how our food choices affect our body and mind, while sharing my delicious baking! As a bonus, I made a bit of extra cash for spending a day having fun connecting with others. Now, I get to do more of these! I even manifested another opportunity in January! Although everything seems fine and dandy on the surface level, there is a lot of deeper diving that I have uncovered.

Connecting to my Deepest Inner Desires

Connecting to my Deepest Inner Desires

What have I wanted to dive deeper into? I’ve been so fortunate and thankful to have this time to be able to sit and reflect on my true desires. I spent my entire life thinking about what I wanted and that was it. I thought I would eventually get there by going as hard as I could, striving to be the best. But there was something missing. It’s so obvious and so not at the same time. As we are children, we are told to act and behave a certain way, which gets in the way of being able to connect to our true desires and feel those feelings authentically. As a recovering perfectionist, I felt like I had to push myself to feel like I could make things happen, and they were not happening. I would burn out over and over again and feel like the world out to get me. But it’s not. I perceived it that way based on my past and fear of future situations.

The Recovering Perfectionist

The Recovering Perfectionist

Hello,

My name is Rachel Duxler and I am a recovering perfectionist. I want to share with you my story of how I became a perfectionist and how it is possible to overcome your shortcomings. I will provide some steps I have taken to shift my mind to trust and let go. How you were raised as a child does not have to be your fate as an adult if you are willing to take the necessary steps to correct it. First of all, I want to say that I know that there are plenty of perfectionists out there, and I want to let you know that you are not alone. You are loved. You are supported. And you are more than enough!
