I’m 41 years old, almost 42 and I have done a lot of shit wrong, but then again I’ve done a lot of shit right too. I have lived a lot of life, seen things most people have never seen, done things most people will never understand or even do in their lives, and yet I haven’t lived the life I thought I would.
Truth be told, I never thought I would have dropped out of high school, gotten involved in drugs or even gotten divorced, but I did. I also never thought I would have been the….

Not my Job

It’s NOT My Job to Make You Love Me

Posted on by Amanda Brown in #bedaring, #beyou, #beyourself, BUFU, Intuition, mindset, ownership | No Comments

Not too long ago, I was having a conversation with a friend who was sharing an emotionally troubling experience she had with someone close to her. She shared how she felt about hearing they no longer wanted to have a relationship with her and how she hasn’t changed at all. She was devastated because she loves this person so much and has made many changes in her life. However she also is at a point in her life and journey where she just simply said okay and walked away…..

Elephant in the Room

Shining Light on the Elephant in the Room

“We don’t always talk about things that happened, so they become the Elephant in the Room.” This was the sentence I started with when I wrote my most recent email to the women of Beautiful Knockout letting them know things have and are changing at Beautiful Knockout. You see, I started my business in 2012 and in its infancy I was focused on “health and fitness’ but something was missing…. I wasn’t the Health and Fitness Person I was showing up as. While I enjoy health and fitness, it isn’t what I wanted to……

Purge

Are You Ready for The Purge this Halloween

Posted on by Amanda Brown in #bedaring, BUFU, mindset, ownership | No Comments

It’s Almost Halloween which means the Annual Purge is here and NOI’m not talking about the horror movie, however this Purge can feel like a nightmare for some of us.

Autumn brings about change, even for us in the desert. The weather gets cooler, the rattlesnakes go into hibernation and the color of the desert landscape transforms. While our Fall isn’t the same as some, it is still about letting go of what doesn’t serve us and preparing for new growth…..

No Wrong Turns

Posted on by Amanda Brown in #bedaring, BUFU, mindset, ownership | No Comments

I used to believe I had made some wrong turns in my life and “bad” decisions but now I realize they were all necessary to help me become who I was meant to be.

You see, often we view our path and journey with a critical eye, a judgmental eye if you will. When we look back we see all the mistakes we took, stupid things we did and where we really went wrong if life. This impacts our sense of self and confidence level. When we judge ourselves we can’t honor and/or love ourselves in any capacity be it then or now. We get stuck in the……

Why Me

Asking Yourself “Why is this Happening to Me?”

Posted on by Amanda Brown in #bedaring, #beyourself, BUFU, Lifestyle, mindset, ownership | No Comments

I used to blame others for what was happening in my life. I would ask myself “why is this happening to me, what did I do?” I felt powerless and like a constant victim of my life. Then one day, I woke up and realized that when I blamed someone or something else, I had no power to change anything. So I started taking ownership where I could and my life began to change.
Many of us want to change or experience a change in our lives, but we aren’t willing to look at our responsibility for…..

Soups On with Italian Tortellini

So the weather is getting cooler and that means…. I can make some soup! Living in Arizona you have to take advantage of any opportunity to make soup especially between November and February. Let’s face it, no one wants to eat soup when it is 100+ degrees outside, well I know I don’t. Now there are three pretty awesome things about making your own soup: You are in complete control of the ingredients you add, including how much salty, how much broth you have, and whether or not you have……

No Guilt or Restriction here!!

Let’s face it, summer is here and wherever you live it is hot, especially in AZ where I live. Truth be told, when it gets hot I just don’t want to cook and sometimes I don’t want to even grill. So what options are left if you are the only one who cooks or grills in your house????? Well for me that leaves, take out and dine in joints…..

Have you ever gotten sucked into thinking any of the following or some version of them?
• If only he/she would say this, then everything will be ok
• I can’t believe he/she didn’t say this, when that is what I needed to hear
• I wish he/she would say this
• When I share how I am feeling, I expect that he/she will say and do this or realize how much of an ass they are being and apologize for hurting me
Well I have….

How Disconnecting Actually Helped Me Connect More

Posted on by Amanda Brown in #bedaring, #beyou, #beyourself, BUFU, Lifestyle, mindset | No Comments

Let me start by start by asking you a question, “Have you been feeling overwhelmed by all the information that is out there?” Well I was and it was hard to make sense of what was right for me, who was the expert I should listen too? Eventually, all of it ran together and sounded the same……. So, I disconnected, unsubscribed and tuned out almost everyone. Maybe you can relate……
