A Crazy, Sexy Life

In her uplifting Super Soul Session, Kris teaches us how she let go of old habits in order to embrace her new crazy sexy life. What exactly does that mean?

“Crazy is unique,” she says.

Different is the celebration of what makes you who you are.

Sexy is informed. Empowered. Standing in your power and helping other people do the same.”

Life is a great teacher.  Life’s teacher will give you obstacles and opportunities.  It is how we deal with these obstacles that determine our success and our resilience.

In short, the crazy sexy lifestyle is about living like you really mean it. “It’s about saying yes and showing up for your life,” Kris says. Watch to see how we can all make little changes to live life a lot bigger through our words and our actions.

Kris goes on to say, “Fear cannot become your fact.  It can inform you but not define you.  It can awaken you but not cripple you.  Keep choosing Love.”

She says prevention is the best cure.  How we care for ourselves matters.  She gives us the 5 Pillars to live a long, beautiful, healthy life:

  • Eating – real food
  • Drinking – keep it real.  She was shocked to find out soda isn’t “real food”.
  • Thinking – dial down stress
  • Resting – rest your mind with mental breaks and get good sleep
  • Renewing – our bodies are meant to move; follow your wonder and whimsy

She goes on to share that we all must have unconditional acceptance.  Having your own back and never abandoning yourself.  It’s not amputating your ambitions, it’s about owning your self worth.  It’s about respecting yourself, honoring who you are in this moment, not who you could be.

We all want to do better, be better, feel better and we can.

She shares, “What we seek from a place of lack or deficiency or feeling like I’m just not enough, we create more suffering in our lives.  When we seek from a place of wholeness of knowing I’m a “badass” that when we grow in a sustainable way.  None of us are broken.  We don’t need fixing.  We need LOVING.”

Kris believes curing takes place in the physical body and healing takes place in the spirit. How many of us are going to truly live?

Give yourself permission to start living your crazy, sexy life.

Give yourself permission to say YES!

Show up for your life.

Take care of yourself and accept yourself.

Live like you really, really mean it.

If choosing a word, isn’t for you, ask yourself these 4 questions from Brene Brown:

  1. What do I want more of in my life?
  2. How do I let go of what’s no longer working?
  3. What will make me feel more alive? More brave?
  4. At the end of every day and at the end of every year, I need to know that I contributed more than I criticized. How have I contributed and what will that look like moving forward?

Words can be the spark but action is the must to make something burn bright. Let’s not fall for words, fall into action.  Go make 2017 the best year yet.

Much Love,

-Elayne
