Ohhh it’s been so long! I’ve missed writing. I’ve missed connecting and sharing things with you.

I’m so happy to be back! I really took time to become still during the holy month of Ramadan. While the rest of the city escaped the ever-increasing summer temperatures, I took the opportunity to enjoy some peace and quiet. Honouring Ramadan this year gave me the opportunity to turn within and give back to myself and give back to others in a much deeper way.

I reconnected to a lot of the positive and spiritual practices that I had let slide, because of, well, life and busy-ness.

I talk about one of these practices in today’s podcast, and I challenge you to join me in doing it for twenty-four hours. If that doesn’t seem like a long time, then wait until you hear what it is. Doing this practice for twenty-four hours is a huge challenge! But so worth it.

Find out what it is by listening to the podcast below.

As I said, I would love to hear from you.

On a scale of 1-10 how challenging did you find implementing this practice for twenty-four hours to be?

How can this practice be helpful to you in your life? What would it change?

Thank you for listening and I’ll catch you again soon for Kira in the Middle.

With lots of love,

How to know when to keep trying and when to give up.

I believe one of the biggest challenges we face when trying to create positive change in our lives, is knowing when to give up and when to push on. In life, and in business, we are faced with moment to moment choices, and in the face of fear, self-doubt, and uncertainty, it can be hard to know exactly what choice to make.

In this v-log I talk about EXPANSION. I talk about how using the concept of expansion is a more realistic way of determining what is right for you as opposed to what simply feels right or feels good.

I know if you’re reading this and following my work then you want to expand.  Even if you don’t know it yet, I know you’re a mover and shaker.  You can’t help it.  Even when you try to play small, you can’t.

You get battered, bruised, broken down, and thrown around on your way towards expanding.

Why?

Why is this whole expansion thing so bloody exhausting?

What’s the point of it all?

If improving myself and my life is like going to battle, why do I do it?

And who or what am I even battling anyway?

I hear ya. I ask myself the same things all the time. Read More
