8 Things I’m Loving At The Moment
1. ALEXANDRA FRANZAN
As a mega word nerd, I get giddy when I here prose that is so witty and beautifully written that I have to pause every few lines just to allow my mind to soak it in. Alexandra’s stuff is just like that. She is funny, wise, and so much fun to work with. How’s this line she has about herself on her website:
“Think of me as your soul stenographer & secret business-building weapon—a copywriter-on-acid with ruthless (but loving) attention to clarity, aesthetics and poetic details.”
Love her. Click here to read her stuff.
2. LOVE NOTES FROM MY TRIBE
A few days ago I received an email from one of my readers, who sent me a link to a blog post she wrote about me, and how I have inspired her journey with breast cancer. Holy cow, this was the nicest thing I have ever read. She called me an Earth Angel. An Earth Angel! It’s so easy to focus on the negative comments that come with the territory of being a health blogger, so it is unbelievably affirming and beautiful to receive something as nice as this. I am so grateful to have such an amazing online family here, and I want each and every one of you to know it!
3. LOVING EARTH CHOCOLATES
Seriously, one of you guys needs to come over to my place and pry the chocolate box out of my greedy fingers. I love Loving Earth so much that I only whip out my stash in front of my boyfriend because I know that he will decline when I offer him a piece (weirdo doesn’t like chocolate. Weirdo). Loving Earth has the best chocolates ever. They are vegan, made with raw cacao and are sweetened with goodness like coconut nectar (some contain agave, but I just pass on those ones). Go here and drool over the selection on their website.
4. MY NEW ADOPDET LLAMA
I entered a Twitter competition my friend Paul Jarvis ran a few months ago and I won myself a llama. Yes, that’s right, a llama. His name is Gent (short for “Gentle Giant”) and his lives at the StillPointe Llama Sanctuary in Silverdale, Washington. This is an awesome place where they rescue, rehabilitate and care for our adorable llama friends. Click here to adopt your own llama.
5. WINTER ON THE SUNSHINE COAST
The bluest of blue skies, sitting outside and soaking up the morning sun in my PJs, and the ability to lie outside in my swimmers in the middle of the day. I am so in love with where I live it’s not even funny. The temperatures might have dropped to the point where we need to wear jumpers, trackie pants, and slippers in the house – and pull out the heater when doing enemas – but I am still so grateful for this glorious weather.
6. GUEST POSTING HERE AND THERE
I love doing guest posts and interviews for sites that I love and while I’ve had to cut back on them while I’m working on my Lifestyle Transformation Guide (see number 8 below), I’ve had several published recently. Have a read, if you like:

7. THE DAILY LOVE
The Daily Love is an amazing wisdom and inspiration infused website created by Mastin Kipp. I have been a subscriber to the TDL for ages, but I had signed up to their newsletter via an old email account and had totally forgotten about it until recently. I finally signed up again, and have made reading Mastin’s Daily Download a permanent part of my morning routine. It just makes the day better.
8. THE WELLNESS WARRIOR LIFESTYLE TRANSFORMATION GUIDE
So I’ve just come back from doing cartwheels on the grass outside*. That’s how excited I am about introducing this e-program to you guys. It is my biggest, best, and most life-changing project to date, and it is going to be awesome. It is also going to be much bigger and better than I first anticipated, which has pushed my launch date back until September. I am still in the creation phase – filming videos, working with my designer, recording audio, and writing brilliant content – but I want to keep you guys in the loop as things are happening. To be the first in the know more and receive behind-the-scenes news, jump over to this page and sign up for updates. I promise, you are going to love it!
*Not really. I don’t know how to do a cartwheel.
Positive affirmation for the day: I choose thoughts that make me feel good.
