Wear That Beautiful Smile! 😁
It may seem overrated but smiling can make the difference between a whole day of being happy or feeling really heavy and deep inside.

Try to smile and you’ll notice a lot of difference. Smiling too is viral (minus all the pain and agony though) as it is contagious to almost everyone around you and almost nobody is immune to it. Try it out!
If you really want to improve your overall happiness and boost your immune system, focus each day on connecting with your support system and spreading positive emotions into the world.
When you give love, you are more likely to get love. And when you share your positive feelings, you help others to share theirs, too.
Do one thing every day that shows someone in your life that you love, value, or appreciate them.
Here are just a few habits that just take a few minutes: ✅ Call someone you love to say hello and see how they are
✅ Hug someone
✅ Hold hands with someone
✅ Give someone a smile or a pat on the back
✅ Tell others how proud you are of someone you love
✅ Do a favor for a friend or loved one
✅ Show a complete stranger kindness and support
Have fun, be happy and don’t forget that smile! Help a friend smile by tagging them in the comments, and post a photo of your silly smile.

Me, 1990, natural hair color, with a perm curl that felt like a lion’s mane. Going through a divorce, I was just 18. Living in rural Sonoma County, dairy cow country, I had just read Diet for a New America by my friend Ocean’s dad, John Robbins.
Growing up vegetarian, the book pushed me to go further, I went vegan. Little did I know then that the milk protein casein was also contributing to my physical challenges.
By the time I took this photo I was only 90 lbs (significantly underweight). I was still breastfeeding my second baby in a year, but my thyroid was on tilt from a few years of extreme stress. I was going hard for wheat, sadly, I would be undiagnosed celiac for another twenty years.
I look back at old photos and marvel at what this body has endured. I am so grateful for the resilience of my ancestors. It literally takes my breath away what they have survived for me to be here.
A decade later I was still struggling with my weight. But by then I nearly doubled in size to 170lbs. I was so desperate I allowed my endocrinologist to convince me to radiate my thyroid. I had not yet learned to trust my intuition around eating. Still eating foods that were toxic for me because I was trying to fit into an ethical framework around eating.
Three years ago when I learned to let go of the judgement of what I put in my mouth — when I based it on how my body felt after I ate, a behavioral psychology foundation of WildFit — I was able to let go of the food addictions and find my balance, effortlessly.
No more yo-yo. No more starving. No more obsessing with a scale. My ancestors are guiding me and my intuition. I’m right where I need to be.
How do you feel about your menus? Are they feeding your emotions, but leaving you hungry, or crappy?
Do you know what foods your ancestors ate traditionally, in seasons?

Done with burnout? Imagine a world where…
we are deeply connected to the ways of living and eating that sustained our ancestors.

Imagine that our food choices renew and replenish us AND the Planet.
We are on Earth today because of HOW OUR ANCESTORS THRIVED.
If you’re struggling with your health. If your nervous system is overburdened. If you find yourself longing to make the difference your here to make but find yourself saying things like “If only I had more time. If only I had more money. If only I felt better.” I want you to know one thing:
The hard truth is that we live in an environment and culture that is hard on our bodies. When we’re not trying to filter out physical toxins like plastic and pollution, we’re filtering out toxic messaging from the FOOD INDUSTRY and DIET CULTURE about what we should and shouldn’t be eating and how we should and shouldn’t look/feel/be in our bodies.
AND. For so many of us, what we do and don’t eat has very real and immediate effects on how we feel, how our bodies are (and are not) able to function and on the vitality of our spirit. Learn how to eat intuitively again.

Shine like the SUPERNOVA you really are. Join Ixchel’s 14-DaySelf-Care Revolution made WILDLY POPULAR by Mindvalley. Eat like your ancestors. Go wild.

As I’ve been doing the never-complete work of #decolonization, I’ve grown increasingly frustrated with my economic conditions.

Having both social value and profit have been heretofore unattainable for me. For over 20 years I leveraged my tangible coding skills to be of service, in deeply #heartcentered way, for the betterment of my family, community and the environment in which I live. And it placed me in deep debt.

During that time I grew a modest #solopreneurship that allowed me the time to earn the privilege of a seat at the public table.

The coding income was enough to donate my time to a calling in public service. Excellent at crafting social and environmental policy, I imagined I would get elected to a paid policy gig (a state or federal seat). That didn’t happen. Instead I turned 40 and was shown the door out of public and professional life. Years later I discovered I wasn’t alone. I am part of a #generationx of women that increasingly became undesirable after 40.

The definition of women’s value was a shifting landscape, and #womenintech were not valued.

After years of debilitating confusion and depression about my lack of inherent value, I recalibrated and reinvented myself as a #wellness coach.

I hustled.

And hustled.

And hustled some more.

Through this struggle, I’ve curiously watched other incredible women coaches and entrepreneurs #hustle too. The consensus is that the online space of #entrepreneurshiplifestyle is exhausting.

The expectation, as heart-centered #selfcare businesses, is that we should give away our content in service to our online community building efforts and eventually people will pay for our services.

And the social media hustle of providing valuable, free content eventually means the platforms I’m giving my content to will require me to pay for visibility to people that have the ability to pay for services. All while basically owning my efforts and data. We’re #pwned

The #feminist tug of being a wellness solopreneur in #latestagecapitalism has been to collaborate. As a local #permaculturist politician, I lauded cooperatives to protect our community from globalism. Now I’ll be exploring how I can do this with others.
