Keep going, keep trying, keep believing in yourself. Life is an iterative process and we get to redraft it whenever we like.

Don’t settle for who you were yesterday. Be more you today. Stop apologising for what you used to be or what you used to do and start becoming who you are can be. You’ve got another draft in you, I promise. You’ve just gotta start writing ✍🏽

There’s something about a group coaching call that rejuvenates me. Listening to my clients share with each other about their struggles and successes and realizing they aren’t alone is honestly one of the best feelings. Being able to facilitate and bring these women together lights a fire in my soul. So grateful for all my clients that show up and do the work to better themselves.
.

Did you know that my 30 Day Alcohol Free Challenge has a group call included in the program? If not, then now you do. Just an FYI my one-on-one coaching packages also include a monthly group call. If you’re looking to build connections with other like-minded women this is a great way to do it! Link in bio to sign up.

Lady bugs were always around when my brother and I were little. Either one of us could find one. Some days when I feel a little lost in my head, I see one of these and I know that he’s still with me always.

We just want deep heart felt connections. 
We crave open hearted vulnerability. 
We want juicy & sweet love to envelop us.

And if alcohol is still your side kick you simply can’t feel it or receive it FULLY.

Booze will leave you lonely, tired and empty inside.

I know you want to feel more open and comfortable within yourself.

I know you want to experience more love and fulfillment.

So maybe it’s time for you to expand beyond the holding pattern you’ve been in... .
Try on your life without a drink in hand?? .
.
Push through your comfort zone and fear into MORE authentic goodness and love.

I’d love to show you how I did it.

Email me to chat: info@meiyan.ca
Use the links in my bio 💖.
.
8 week online guided program for you to release your resistance and flow into your heart.

What do you think? 🤗😘Meiyan .

Starting off my Friday with my chiropractor. I am hoping that I am able to get some relief today because yesterday was horrid pain wise. At least I binged the last of American Horror Story Freak Show.

Day 33 of why mummies don't need wine.... Mummy needs....to feel pure joy!

It's a fast paced world. We are constantly flooded with stress. Life can be bloody hard sometimes. 
But always at our very core is joy. Pure joy! The child-like joy that innocent children have. That awe and wonder about things we now take for granted as adults: A shadow, a stick, a leaf, the clouds, the blue sky, the grass, the sun, the moon. The things that children get excited about or ask questions about that we often don't know the answers to.

If we can unpeel the layers of stress, chaos and being busy, we will find that the child-like joy and wonder is still there. That we don't need to look for things outside of ourselves to make us happy.

It doesn't mean that we will always be smiling, happy and bouncy. Life will happen. But if we are willing to pause, surrender, do the work and peel back the layers we will find joy at our core once again. "There is no path to happiness, happiness is the path." 🙏❤☀️🧘‍♀️ #soberliving #soberlife #mummieswhodontneedwine #womenwhodontdrink #sobermomtribe

Meet my first and only oily babe.
My whole pregnancy I didn’t use chemical makeup, hygiene products, lotions, cleaners (you get the point).
She has had next to zero baby acne, dryness behind the ears, or cradle cap.
I’ve been sitting here just waiting for it to come.
When I saw a tiny bit yesterday, I popped some seedlings oil on and it was gone over night (it was just a tiny spot).
Same went for the little baby acne she had.
I also put it on those little white zitty things babes get, yesterday and those have disappeared.
I love being empowered as a mother in my decisions to use products on her thin skin, knowing that the company who’s products I’m using displays transparency and a seed to seal promise.
Motherhood is hard enough, I don’t want to have to research new brands and ingredients all the time 😅 
Also- this stuff is amazing for razor burn and chafed skin! And my own diaper rash from that hospital underwear after birth.

It takes a lot of vulnerability and strength to ask who am I, really? ⁣
•⁣
Where did this side of be that is so fearful come from?⁣
What about the side of me that feels so much anger? Or the side of me that feels so stupid, sometimes?⁣
•⁣
•⁣
What purpose do they serve and how do they tie in with the sides of me that are a comedian, an amazing friend, or a rock star math goddess?⁣
•⁣
I’ve been there and am still there, all the time, discovering. It’s a process of a lot of 😭, a lot of self kindness and forgiveness. It’s a process of growth. ⁣
•⁣
When we’re able to really sit down with all the sides of what make us who we are and why they’re here, it’s transformative. ⁣
•⁣
I’ve found that when we’re able to hold a conference with all these parts of myself, acknowledge them, honor how much they’ve helped me over the years, and continue to acknowledge them.. 🤯 ⁣
•⁣
Such a sense of understanding & some joy in who I am has happened. I’ve found when we pull out 🔍 and turn it inward, without judgement we’re really able to begin deep level healing, inner child healing, and find some gratitude for who we are. ⁣

I wish the same deep gratitude for you. ⁣

My world used to be very small. Limited by my own perception of reality. Not on purpose but because of a lack of experience. Making a commitment to ask questions instead of form judgments based on a small amount of information has helped my world grow. It's taken away fears and given me Devine purpose for creating peace within myself and others. 🙏 . . .

What a difference a year can make. One year ago today I sat at the 195 day mark and had lost 19.5 lbs. Today I sit at the 560 day mark with even more conviction about my decision to abandon alcohol. #Sobriety isn’t just about losing weight and feeling great. It’s about taking back control of your life and making decisions based on clarity. I never think about drinking anymore, unless it’s my sparking water. The power is within you, you just have to fight for it. 🌸🌺🌸

Drunk Jessica vs. Sober Jessica. I did some digging for old photos of my party past. Circa 2009. It would be between about then and when I got sober in 2013 that things were bad. Really bad. I needed a physical reminder of what has changed. Because when we’re in a dark place we don’t see a way out. This week has been a little wonky. Doing a lot of thinking of what it is I can to do for others. And it keeps coming back to this. I’m hoping that as I continue to tell my story, talk openly and be vulnerable about alcoholism and sobriety it can help someone else. Maybe you know me and see this photo and think well “that’s just party Jessica” or “just a typical night down on Chippewa” (my Buffalo people get it 🤣) But seriously, I see a glassy eyed, sweaty and unhappy person trying to numb whatever it was that was weighing on her. To the right is a person who gets up everyday working to be the best she can be (almost...we’re not perfect) and takes care of her mind, heart and body. My smile is genuine and while I still may not have it all together, I’m not drinking. Drinking got in the way. And I know it can hold me back in doing big things with my life. I don’t want to go back to that. Even if some days I think my life is boring and miss “something” I know when I get thinking that way, I need to get back to ME. Because that girl in 2009 was a hot mess. And she needs to stay there. So to anyone that has read this far and is still struggling, know that it’s truly better on the other side. It’s not with its ups and downs but god dammit...IT IS WORTH IT!

I’m freaking out today. My husband has bought a dog and we’re going to collect her in 6 hours. I’ve never had a dog and all the books I’ve read are just terrifying me about how difficult this is going to be. I don’t do well with change, and maybe my husband is right to just make decisions as left to me, I’d probably never make the leap. But I’ve not slept well for weeks, and all I can think about it the negative. I’ve spent 6 years looking after the kids and working and this year I’d finally taken control of my life; my sobriety had really helped with that - I’ve been going to the gym, restarted playing tennis, started a new uni course, keeping up with friends and felt like I was finally winning. And now I feel like the rug has been pulled from under me and all the things I was doing to help my mental health will have to stop because I can’t leave the puppy alone long enough to do them. And I feel guilty about it all because look at her! Beautiful dog. Just feeling a mess. #sobriety #mentalhealth #dogguilt #sobrietyrocks #sobermomtribe

Whilst I might not be the life of the party or the last one standing at the end of the night anymore, I do still love to socialise.

My drink of choice these days may have changed, but my love of human connection, good food and conversation certainly hasn’t.

So I just wanted you to know; deciding to remove alcohol from your life doesn’t make you less fun, or change who you are as a person. (Side note: It does, however, make you stop doing stupid things - which makes that a win/win, right?)... The only thing it changes on the inside, is your good health.

And I’ll cheers to that ✌🏽🍉

Tonight’s sunset was unreal 😍 I don’t think I have ever seen the colors this vibrant and fade into each other this perfect. I mean WOW! Absolutely no filter here just pure perfection from our creator.
