Journaling: Self-Care, Self-Love, Connect with God!

Do you have something that creates so much joy and excitement that you get a giddy, smile, and even giggle when you see this “something”!?

Me:  the most recent “something” was this amazing PDF Journal I purchased from a dear friend! (Check out her ETSY shop HERE!)

Oh my goodness…it made me dance, laugh, and smile soooo big!

Why?

The caricature on the cover and within it reminds me of ME!  She is cute, bubbly, and curvy!

As we all know here – if you have been reading my blog for very long – know that my willingness to truly compliment and love me for me has been a journey.  Dysmorphia is not a label I own, but I do continue to respect it and learn more and more ways on shutting up the lies that like to pop up from time to time.

This journal makes me excited because the way I started my 2022 journals –  with some very specific intentions in growing my whole health with exercise/movement, nutrition, mental health, and so much more – are now able to all be in ONE PLACE rather than 3 or 4 different journals….I am soo excited to start using it!

What do you have that helps you stay focused on loving yourself and connecting to how God sees you!?  

I would love to hear all about it!

Until then….may you have an absolutely lovely and blessed day and week!

Hugs, blessings, and prayers always,

Kelly 😉

PS….

I’ve been working on some books, movies, documentaries and so many more reviews…I can’t wait to share more with you about my thoughts!!!

How Frick Writes became Kelly Frick: Connect…

I was pondering on this little factoid a few weeks ago… about how much this blog has changed and how it started and where it is at today.

Don’t we all do that with everything, anything in our life?

When I started this blog 10 plus years ago the name Frick Writes was a play on words that requires way too many words and paragraphs to explain so I will save that for another day :).  But the biggie was that I was writing about other books….sharing about what I was reading. Yet it was also birthed because I needed an outlet to heal from my miscarriage.  Books and writing have always been my happy place.

Then about 2 or 3 years into it my writing started to shift and become so much more than just giving my thoughts on what I was currently reading.  It became about what life challenges had just thrown my way and how I was maneuvering them.  Or I would write about what was currently going on in the world and how it related to my faith walk.  And then it became about my entering into business and how I was supporting my health with natural remedies…..

It was about that time that I changed the name from Frick Writes to Kelly Frick: Connect.  It again was a play on words.

As I had entered into the holistic world of health not only for myself but for coaching others I wanted to convey how everything was connected to our health.  But a title like “Connect your Health: Mind Body Soul Spirit”…..well was long…lol….more of a tag line….and honestly at that time, not even a concept that was being thought of.  Like who would think that if a person is having liver issues (physical) that it could be related to their anger (emotional -mental and/or spiritual health)…..that was just waaay too woohoo for the average person…lol….

And really I saw the word CONNECT as meaning so much more….

  • Connect the drops (another play on words for essential oils)….
  • Connect your health…
  • Connect with your community…
  • Connect with other women…
  • Connect to your faith..
  • Connect with your body…
  • But most important…
  • CONNECT WITH GOD…through all these other connections…

But I didn’t know how to express all that then….I didn’t know how to explain it…

Over the course of the last couple of years, I have pondered once again if I should change the name…after all, some in the business world find KELLY FRICK: CONNECT too ambiguous and it doesn’t explain enough.  And I have even had some people get confused thinking that Connect is my last name….lol…

Yet I KNOW that this name is perfect….

Especially now as I have stepped out of the coaching and business world…and back into full-time ministry and writing…

How do I know it is perfect?

Because each year I am on this healing journey I am able to CONNECT another piece of the puzzle to a previous one…..

OR I am able to CONNECT with another amazing woman who needs to be CONNECTED with another person I know….

And that is just another one of my gifts and talents….I just know how to CONNECT things and people….I LOVE IT….I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE BEING A CONNECTOR and building community….

I say this with absolute humility….I can’t take credit for this gift…it is truly from God….cause the introvert in me would rather just sit, write, read, and pray…lol…

Now I know many of you are going to say….”But Kelly the top of the blog says: Kelly Frick ~ Connect with God to Love the Skin You are In!”……

I have thought about changing that too….to just go back to Kelly Frick: Connect…

But this is the thing….at the root of all this connecting…..my ultimate desire is to draw ALL of us (myself included) to CONNECT deeper with God.  THROUGH WHICHEVER MEANS….to get to a place where we are TRULY AT PEACE IN OUR OWN SKIN….When we are able to see that GOD CREATED US SO BEAUTIFULLY AND THAT WE ARE IN THE IMAGE AND LIKENESS OF HIM!

Therefore that realization further cemented my conviction that this blogs website url of www.kellyfrickconnect.com is exactly as it is to be….because when you come here you are right away reminded we are to CONNECT WITH GOD TO LOVE THE SKIN WE ARE IN….aka, the tag line that I will forever teach and breath and write about through all areas.

So whether I write about microwaves, egg recipes, healing retreats, illness, laundry soap, or the latest books I have been reading…my intent is to always connect you to God through my own journey…..because honestly what I have been finding even more so on this amazing journey of past trauma healing, dysmorphia, hashimotos, miscarriages, and soooo much more is that the more we CONNECT with God…..the more we fall in love with HIM.  And in return, we fall in love with how beautifully wonderfully made we are.

I write and share here as much for myself as I do for you, the reader….it continually reminds me how far I have come….and how much more I have to go…..but also to enjoy the entire process….to be truly present in the moment and CONNECT!

How do you CONNECT?

What does CONNECT mean to you?

Many blessings and hugs always,

Kelly 🙂

Just Say NO!

Do you struggling with saying NO to others?

I want you to think about every time you say yes to everyone else you are saying NO to you!

You’re saying NO to your health, NO to your dreams, NO to your goals!

This is not selfish….this is true self care!

The more we say YES to us and our needs the more we are able to shine and be the best version of our self for others….therefore spreading amazing love and light!

Oils that help us with saying NO:

💜Clove -helps us maintain boundaries

💜Spearmint- helps us speak up; use our voice.

💜Bergamot- helps us have the confidence to believe in ourself and in our needs.

💜Grapefruit- helps us remember we are to love ourselves.

Which oil helps you say NO to others so you can say YES to you?

40 Days to Freedom

If you have hung out with me here for any amount of time you know I am a huge advocate of all types of fasts: Spiritual, Nutritional, Absolute, Intermitent….etc.

File Feb 14, 12 18 17 PM

For me it does not matter what type of fast I go into it is always taken into prayer…..and sometimes it is actually given to me through prayer and then me re-taking it into prayer so I can hear clearly what I am supposed to be doing.

But one of the biggies I usually do with a fast is I usually do not share with many people;  usually only 1 or 2 are brought into it.  And that is because it was spoken into me shortly after my huge transformation with fasting in the beginning.  God pressed it into my heart that all fasts forward were to remain private unless told otherwise.

Well here I am years later Him telling me loud and clear…..this one is too big for you….you need to be united with others….lots of others.

Why?

Because there is a HUGE DISCONNECT with who we are as people and in our healing.

There are sooo many hurting people turning to sooo many different types of addictions (drugs, alcohol, pornography, food, shopping, apathy, body…etc).   And why?  To avoid the work of healing.  And why?  Because healing is hard work!

Healing means you have to be willing to go THROUGH the pain….not around it.

Healing means you have to open your eyes to and bring to the front what you have been avoiding.

So on September 2-October 12, I will be entering into a fast that is intentional in praying for people who are struggling with addictions.

I think we probably ALL know someone who is burdened by addiction.  Who has been enslaved by the lies of its soothing denial of the truth.

I can’t do this alone.

So regardless if you enter into a fast or just add extra prayers during those 40 days….are you open to add the intentional prayers for those struggling with addictions?

When we CONNECT our prayers and spirits together we truly CAN move mountains!

Have an amazingly blessed day and labor day weekend!

My hugs and prayers are always with each and every one of you!

blessings,

Kelly 😉

Hormones: Groan!

When I look at my beautiful daughter I hate that I passed on to her my hormonal imbalances!

But what she has that I didn’t have at her age is so much more understanding of it…and how to overcome and transform her health!

One way our hormones can be imbalanced is being estrogen dominant.

Estrogen dominance can be very common, and despite knowing the signs and symptoms of this condition, you should also know what to do if you are suffering from it.

💧The 10 most common symptoms of estrogen dominance:

Abnormal menstrual periods

Low libido

Fatigue

Bad PMS (breast tenderness/swelling, mood swings, and headaches)

Hair loss

Weight gain (especially hips and abs)

Brain fog

Trouble sleeping

Thyroid dysfunction

Sluggish metabolism

Here are the steps you should follow in order to restore the healthy hormonal balance in the body:

💜Step 1: Eliminate Xenoestrogens

We are constantly being exposed to various chemicals, and one of them is “xenoestrogen,” which can mimic estrogen in the body.

Therefore, in order to avoid these adverse effects, you should avoid the use of the following top offenders:

Plastic Tupperware

Plastic water bottles

BPA cans

Cosmetics, makeup, and toiletries

Tap water

Non-organic dairy, produce

Soy protein isolate

Dryer sheets

Birth control pill

💜Step 2: Elimination (ie: poo 💩)

This step is essential as it will ensure the removal of estrogen, and prevent its re-entrance into the bloodstream in the case of chronic constipation.

Make sure you are having daily bowel movements, and in case you are not:

Drink 2-3L of water daily

Increase the intake of fiber-rich foods

Increase the intake of vegetables with every meal.

💧Add the TerraGreens to ensure extra fruits and veggies!

Consume probiotics:

💧PB Assist

💧PB Assist Jr

💪🏻best taken before bedtime to restore gut.

To promote bowel movements, supplement with magnesium citrate or Triphala

Moreover, in order to help the removal of waste and toxins from the body, you should also:

Exercise or go to a sauna to stimulate sweating

Breathe deeply to support the lungs

Massage your body to support the lymph

Use a dry skin brush to eliminate dead skin cell.

Use your oils with dry brushing!

Oils for lymph drainage support:

💧Purify

💧DDR Prime

💧Slim&Sassy

💜Step 3: Improve Liver Health and Estrogen Detoxification

Estrogen is effectively removed by a well-functioning liver. In the first stage, the liver turns harmful estrogen intro milder, weaker forms of estrogen, and in the second stage, it converts it into a water-soluble form, so you can eliminate it through the stool or urine.

Yet, the liver won’t be able to fulfill its function if the body lacks important nutrients, or it is overburdened with other chemicals, accumulated due to the use of processed foods, drugs, and alcohol.

To support the function of the liver, you should:

Drink lots of filtrated water

Do not drink alcohol

Each a real, whole-foods based diet

Avoid overeating

Eat foods that support liver health, such as kale, dandelion greens, beets, garlic, eggs, dark leafy greens, artichoke, onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc.)

Taking supplements that are rich in detoxifying vitamins and minerals is super helpful.

Such as:

💧LLV

💧GX Assist

💧Zendocrine

In order to kick start your metabolism and improve your overall healthy by detoxifying and energizing the body try:

💧Mito2Max

💧DDR Prime

💧cleanse and restore kit/system

Finally center yourself each day!!!

Find 5-10 minutes at least once if not twice a day to truly reflect on your whole health!

Sometimes when our estrogen is out of whack and we’ve done all the physical and nutritional needs then that means we have some mental, emotional, spiritual stuff we need to address.

But we aren’t going to know unless we stop to center ourselves and find some alignment within ourselves!

How are your hormones?!

As always I hope you take a moment to sit….pray….journal….tap….and oil up today!

Hugs and prayers always,

Kelly 💜

Clear the Mental Chatter

I have been wrestling with some internal work…..which is good but man it’s exhausting sometimes…..lol….

2019-01-13 20.16.33

So reminding myself of my pillars of health have been super helpful!

I have always found it interesting that when I am teaching and/or coaching with others……or putting together workshops…..well what ever the topic is seems to be exactly what I am needing at that time as well….I just didn’t realize it…lol….

As I have been diving deeper into prepping for a workshop I am having on the 6th….it’s been bringing up some of the old junk and yuck of my journey with dysmorphia!

Which has me realizing that I MUST continue to do the mental and emotional work…..which means….I MUST be working on my sleep, stress levels, and toxin load…..because those all contribute to my mental chatter: negative or positive.

I also realized that by not coming on here….and sharing with you all I wasn’t helping myself……and I DEFINITELY wasn’t serving, supporting, and loving you the best I could.  Because we all need each other…..we are connected through this great big world….and even if I can’t sit down and physically have a cup of tea with you….doesn’t mean I can’t show up here and have tea with you!

I think sometimes in the big world of blogging, FB, Instagram, and all other sorts of social media we forget to truly show up and connect….the same way we would at tea or a dinner party.

We get caught up in thinking we must have pictures just perfect…..so many hashtags….and all the other chatter…..and we forget just showing up is what is important.  Staying connected is what is important.

So this is me staying connected…..let you know that I have so much to share with you and I promise to quit thinking it all has to be “perfect”…..quit thinking you won’t want to hear this or that…..and to quit comparing what I am doing to what others are doing!

Because I am ME….and no one else can be ME!  And you need ME…..just as I am…..just like I need each of you to be just as you are!

Because WE ARE ENOUGH!

Have an amazingly blessed day.

Hugs and prayers always,

Kelly 😉

Transformation Tuesday

I started out this year with purposing myself to hop on to Facebook EVERY TUESDAY to provide support and service with a facebook live.  I do this on my public page Kelly Frick: Connect as well as in two other groups:  my private clients and my team of leaders.

What started out as me wanting to be super intentional and consistent in showing up for something…..has turned into an amazing transformation in my own health….we are talking my mental health…..and how it effects my physical health.

img_4783

You see because of the traumas I experienced in my past….my fight, flight, freeze was always on hyper-alert.  And dysmorphia definitely distorts that and makes it even more intense.

So my excuse factor for why I couldn’t do something, show up somewhere, and keep a schedule was always…well full of excuses.

Over the years with ministry and business I have worked more and more on this.  But 3 years ago I made a commitment to myself that I had to truly think before I committed to something so I wouldn’t back out at the last minute.  So that once I set a date, put something on the schedule or told someone I would be there…..I HAD TO DO IT!!!

It was hard at first…..because it is not that I didn’t want to be true to my word….but you have to understand…..trauma….particularly sexual abuses…..creates this distortion in the brain that EVERYTHING is a potential danger.

I wanted to once and for all be braver and start rewiring my brain to believe and KNOW it was okay to have an amazing ministry and business, to support women, to be the best version of myself.

And that is what I have done.

I have consistently been showing up EVERY TUESDAY for a Facebook Live…..and every week I schedule wellness calls with clients…..every month I provide a wellness workshop…..AND I DO NOT CANCEL ON MYSELF OR ON THEM!!!

img_5009

What have you cancelled on that was due to your fight, flight, or freeze being in hyper alert?!

Sit with this….pray about it…..journal….tap….and oil up!

Many blessings always,

Kelly 🙂
