There are some people who just glow. You can feel their positive energy and see their genuine smile. These individuals are happy and comfortable in their own skin, and, in more cases than not, it’s likely they have a vibrant complexion to match.

I won’t get into that philosophy here, but there is something to be said for how our thoughts inform how we feel about ourselves and, subsequently, the decisions we make that either promote an inspired life and healthy body or…don’t.
I recently came across Spirited: Soulful Lessons on Clarity, Connection and Coming Home (to You) and absolutely loved it. Written by Australian life coaches Rachel MacDonald and Tara Bliss, it is a beautiful e-book that nudges you to create your best life by re-discovering your dreams, clarifying the things you desire most, and taking actionable steps to achieving this vision. The insightful words, probing exercises and soulful guidance are impactful, whether you’re considering a big change or something small.
Ready to only dip a toe into spiritual waters? The free Spirited Manifesto offers simple, yet wise, words to live by. I have a copy pinned up in my office, reminding me daily to be grateful for everything I have – my health, my family, my business. Because when we realize how blessed we are and how much potential there is in each one of us, we inevitably feel calmer, confident, and more loving and beautiful. And who knows, a spirited touch might just soothe those worry lines away.
