Today I’m giving you a proven, effective strategy for those moments when you simply aren’t “feeling it.”

I had a few hours like that yesterday.

This is what I did.

I felt it, then I asked myself…

1. What’s true about this?
2. What do I need right now?

There are times when PUSHING THROUGH is what you need to do. Other times, doing the exact opposite may be the best course of action.

No matter what, your heart knows.

Listen to that still, small voice within you — your inner, sweet, little girl — and respond accordingly.

I promise. She knows what you need.

Please grab your S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Write yourself a permission slip to take a Happy Nappy.

To take a little break.

Pause, and remember why you’re doing what you’re doing.

Give yourself a little extra love today.
