What’s the one thing you wish you knew when you were first starting out on this journey?

Really different everyday.
Any morning rituals?
Wake up early. Drink a bunch of water and take a probiotic. Have warm water with lemon. Write on a good day. Go to a really early morning yoga or barre class. Meditate. Maybe color a mandala. Eat breakfast and then start with a creative task. Finish at least one creative task before I check email.
Usually record a podcast in the evening or talk to a client. Making dinner, getting in my PJs, and watching youtube videos or lately NetFlix because I JUST got it. Writing down 5 things I’m grateful for about the day and going bed.

Journaling on the regular about my feelings. I don’t know how I’m feeling unless I’m writing. Also, drinking a ton of water when I first wake up in the morning. Saying to myself, “it is going to be an amazingly awesome day” every morning.
Any unconventional life hacks / beauty tricks you swear by?
I wash my face with Hemp Oil and I love it. I also only wash my hair like once a week.
