Foundfully Fridays

Starting Over


By focusing energy on the new, we can leave the old behind. Setting intentions allows you to positively create habits and to focus forward. Bringing opportunities rather than failure. Unlike setting resolutions, this removes pressure, and helps you to find new ways of being. Ways that are more aligned and attainable. Starting over monthly, [...]

Upside Down


When life feels stagnant, we get unmotivated and stuck. Problems seem daunting and solutions out of reach. This is the time to get upside down. Flipping things on it’s side, seeing the world from a different angle jolts us. A mere change of perspective will result in changes. Shifts and forward motion are within [...]

Get Uncomfortable


Being in the comfort zone is where routine and familiarity live. Regularity minimizes stress and risk, providing us a state of mental security. Breaking from this can feel daunting and unnatural. Comfort however, kills productivity. It keeps us in a safe place, where we do the minimum and just go through the motions. We [...]

Love is Everywhere


It’s in the little moments where we can truly experience love. Paying attention, then embracing it is entirely up to us. A warm feeling about a friend, noticing a smile, a song that brings up special memories, a smell that takes us back in time. Simple reminders are everywhere for the taking. We just [...]

More Patience


Patience helps us keep calm in the face of disappointment, deal better with stress and minimize suffering. It allows us to exhibit greater empathy, generosity and compassion. Our amygdala, is responsible for feeling out danger and regulating emotions. Yet this almond-shaped set of nerve tissues is unable to identify if we are in true [...]

Leaving Room


When we drop expectations, we make room for the new. We create an openness to what may happen without being stuck to an outcome. When we are able to mindfully approach our lives in this manner, we are not disappointed. Conversely, we may actually feel greater joy and satisfaction even in the same situations. [...]

Practice Gratitude


Gratitude helps us get unstuck. It is a simple, yet effective tool to help us feel more happiness. In shifting our focus, we retrain our brain. Rather than focus on what is bogging us down, we can choose to see what we are grateful for. Since gratitude is correlated with optimism, the more we [...]

Giving Thanks


We wanted to thank those we’ve had the honor of coming into contact with this year. From those we get to work with, to those we’ve met briefly, from unexpected encounters to regular appointments. You are all impactful to us. We learn and grow personally and professionally from every experience, challenge & meaningful moment [...]

Relinquishing Control


Letting go of the need to control others moves us from judgement to acceptance. We are able to “hold space” and walk alongside people, without trying to impact the outcome. By stepping out of the way, we let life be; opening up space. Removing an unrealistic sense of responsibility from our shoulders. Shifting away [...]

Boundless Energy


When young, we feel there is enough time and energy to do everything we want to do. As adults, we are excited about life when we feel fulfilled and are in the present moment. This is not achieved by crossing items off a to do list or making things ‘perfect’. Rather, it comes from [...]
