The #1 Biggest Regret in Life

Woman Water

Hey Amazing Soul,

When you think back on your life, is there a moment that comes to mind you wish you had seized an opportunity? For example, one moment was when I was about 6 or 7 years old and I was at Sea World. I was asked by the staff to sit on top of Shamu. I was too scared to do it at the time.

Whenever I think about beautiful marine life I wish I had said “yes” and taken the chance to know what it felt like to be THAT close to such a gorgeous creature (note: I am in NO WAY approving of Sea World’s operations). It’s not every day you can say you sat on top of a Killer Whale.

Which brings me to my next point…

Warning: This is Not for the Weak

My next point…being in the present and creating…more regret.

So many people’s top regret in their later years of life is not taking chances when presented with opportunities. Why is this? It’s because it’s so much easier to view from hindsight 20/20 than to carpe diem the future.

I’m going to get morbid for a moment, but it’s because I want to put something into perspective for you:

We all know we are going to transition from this planet one day. We all know older people who have lived a longer time on earth. When the top regret of older souls is not taking more chances in their past, then why aren’t you listening to this collective acknowledgement when it comes to your OWN life?

When we hear about young people passing away, we think something along the lines of, “they had so much life they could have lived.” We feel sadness for them and their families because they were “too young” to transition.

Well, you ARE alive right now, so why are you stopping YOURSELF from seizing YOUR opportunities?

When Fear Becomes Too Fearful

Fear. When you read the word, what do you think of next? What kind of feelings come over you? We all have it. Fear of judgments, fear of being rejected, fear of failing, fear of not knowing, fear of being disappointed, fear of change, fear of anything and everything you allow yourself to talk yourself OUT OF doing in YOUR life.

When you become a parent, you want what is best for your child. But, don’t you think it’s odd that you want to encourage your child to seize opportunities and LIVE life to their fullest while at the same time you prefer to hit the “pause” button on your own life?

Whether you want to publish a book, make an album, learn to paint, sell your paintings, become a jeweler, become an actor/actress, go back to college, go to college, travel more, get married, have children, the list goes on. Whatever it is, anything and everything…the Universe is your oyster.

There is ALWAYS a way to expand your knowledge, plan, take soul-inspired actions, and move forward achieving your dreams and desires. There is always what I like to call “a loophole” with regards to the “rules” of life.

It’s Never the “Right” Time

What do you want? I’m serious. What do YOU want? Forget about others for a moment, what is it you really are so passionate about in life? And why haven’t you at least started doing it yet?

If you are allowing fear to dictate how you choose to decide and respond in your life, take a U-turn! There is a PLETHORA of knowledge in our world with just a few clicks of your keyboard and your mouse.

It’s never the perfect time to get started…except that right now is the perfect time to get started.

You might be surprised at how quickly you receive your dreams and desires if you just go for it. Each day, keep going, each day keep defining, keep refining, and polishing your new reality.

And there are plenty of online mentors and experts who can help guide you along your newly ABUNDANT and SOULFUL path manifesting your version 2.0 life. Pick up the phone, click around on your mouse, join Facebook groups, email some mentors, pick up some books, open your Kindle, you are NOT alone on your journey. These mentors are here to HELP guide you because they understand how you are feeling right now. If they could manifest their new reality, so can YOU! I totally believe in you!

Pretend You’re Your Icon at the Starting Location on the Game Board of Life

The person you admire was once in your exact shoes with their mindset beliefs as well. And if they could shift their thoughts and beliefs from scarcity-thinking into successful-thinking, you can do this, too! Success doesn’t happen overnight, but it DOES happen for anyone and everyone who wants it bad enough. Does this kind of sound like you? It does because your soul is ACHING to be unleashed and free to live life the way you are meant to live it. Starting NOW.

And your manifestations CAN and DO happen quicker than you believe them to when it comes to the Law of Attraction! All you gotta do is believe it’s done, SHOW the Universe what you are passionate about by taking soul-inspired actions, and keep going daily. The Universe works behind the scenes 99% of the time before your manifestations emerge into your physical sphere.

For this weekend I challenge you to Google your passions, your dreams, and your desires, and start piecing together what you are committed to doing in order to expand your knowledge and expand your horizons. Then, I want you to start taking soul-inspired ACTION, Beautiful Soul. Yes! I’m talking to YOU!

Show the Universe who is Badass BOSS (hint: YOU). You’ve got this!

Why are you putting SO MUCH PRESSURE on yourself when your past habitual thoughts no longer serve you for your highest happiness?

The meaning of failure and regret does NOT have to mean what you think it has to mean.

Release Your Fear & Manifast: Manifest Faster!

XOXO Jaclyn

What If…


Are you following what your soul is calling you to do EACH DAY?

Why not?

What are your fears that are keeping you feeling stuck in your life?

Why do you have your fears that are keeping you feeling stuck in your life?

What would happen if you were to release your fears for just ONE day?

What COULD happen if you were to release your fears for just ONE day?

What COULD happen if you were to follow your soul’s wants, needs, and cravings for just a few days?

What is the worst-case scenario in releasing ALL of your fears and unleashing your inner badass?

What is the BEST-case scenario in releasing ALL of your fears and unleashing your inner superhero?

Where do you WANT to be and WHO do you WANT to be 3 years from now?

How can you get to this place?

What all is needed in order to get to this place in your life?

What are you ALLOWING yourself to feel regret over 3 years from now?

What CAN you do NOW to help propel yourself forward to the place and stage in your life that you WANT to be and WHO you WANT to be 3 years from now?

And, again, what is the worst that could happen if you go forth and propel yourself?

And again, what is the BEST that could happen if you go forth and propel yourself?

Aren’t you tired of feeling stuck in life?

Aren’t you tired of merely existing in life?

Isn’t your soul CRAVING and ACHING to unleash into the world and SHARE its gifts of FUN, ABUNDANCE, BLESSINGS, and ANYTHING ELSE it TRULY is being called to live and do in the Universe?

Law of attraction states: like attracts like. What are you FOCUSING on the majority of the time each day? What are you FOCUSING on the majority of the time each day in your thoughts, your feelings, and your actions?

It’s time to unleash your inner badass and superhero!

It’s time to LIVE life by your OWN reign!

It’s time to be, allow in, and start Manifesting Your Soul’s New Reality! It’s time to be, allow in, and start gaining an EMPOWERING EDGE in the Law of Attraction!

I did it…and if I can do it, the most stubborn person I know, anyone can SHIFT and start living by their soul’s TRUEST calling!

You’ve got this!

Carpe Diem!

How Is Your Relationship With Regret?

Louise L Hay - Best of my Life

Hey Sensational Soul!

As I sit here writing this while watching my pets sleepily snore on a Sunday afternoon, I am (like usual) contemplating life and our role on this planet. I had a conversation with someone yesterday who is stuck in a pattern of “reacting” vs. responding when it comes to life. I saw the fire in this person, their soul aching to get out and live by its true purpose; however, their thought patterns are currently stuck in victim mentality.

While we cannot control how people live their lives or how others think and feel; nonetheless, what we CAN control is how we (ourselves) live our own lives and we CAN control how we (ourselves) think and feel. And this shapes and creates our new physical reality.

I ended my conversation with this individual by saying, “I don’t want to wake up 20 years from now, if I make it that far, and look back full of regrets thinking and feeling I should have done this or that.”

I want to live in the NOW. I want to relish in the beauty of the present moment. And part of being happy on your own soul’s journey is to be grateful for what you DO have in your life right now and the people who are a positive support system. So many of us look back on our memories and either look back on them in gratitude that we are no longer living in the past; or, many of us look back on the past and think, “I was so happy THEN.”

Look, let me be blunt for a second: the past, no matter how good or bad, is IN the past. There is nothing we can do to bring it back. And continuing to live in the past is only STUNTING our ability to be happy in the present.


So how do you let go and ALLOW yourself to relish in your current moments? How can you START truly living your life so that in the future you are not looking back in regret? Here are some tips:

1) Wake up in gratitude. Wake up each morning and while you are getting ready for your day, start telling yourself how “thankful” you are for your bed, your bathroom, your air conditioning, your coffee, your breakfast meal, the ability to be able to breathe on your own, your car, the destination you are going to that allows you to be able to pay your bills each month, your sight, your hearing, your sense of smell, and so much more. There is ALWAYS something to be thankful for in your life. Somewhere on this earth, filled with over 7 billion people, someone does not have the same things you are blessed with in your life.

2) Embrace that alarm sound. Set an alarm in your phone at least 4 times per day to go off so that you take 1-3 minutes and stop what you are doing and have a moment of a mental break. Either close your eyes or keep them open, FOCUS on your breathing, clear out all the noise going on in your mind, and just breathe for 1-3 minutes stating, again, how thankful you are for your ability to be able to have these moments. Think about how thankful you are to have your lunch meal from today, being able to get from place to place by your mode of transportation, and everything else that you may take for granted each day.

Doing this 4 times, or more, on a daily basis is TRAINING your mindset to shift from a negative-thinking cycle into a more positive and centered place of being. This allows your mindset to SHIFT from living in stress/fear to living from a place of your soul’s truest calling. This transformation gives your soul its ability to start communicating TO you more as you ALLOW it to do so from a place of gratitude.

3) The Secret of manifesting. Living in the present in gratitude is the root of ALL manifestations. Daily, consistent practice in your thinking patterns WILL shift because you are TRAINING your mindset, thus your mindset beliefs will also shift. Your consistent awareness of how you are thinking FREES you from the burdens of the “shoulds” in your life. Your soul is aching to get out and you don’t even realize YOU hold the keys to the cage you may be holding yourself hostage in with regards to your physical reality. By ALLOWING your soul to live its true purpose, you ALLOW your manifestations to come into your physical realm. How fascinating is this!?

Your soul, your mindset, and the Universe work TOGETHER, simultaneously, in creating your own reality. And you are the MASTER of your mind, not the other way around. Think of it in terms of learning a math problem or getting into the habit of physically working out: at first it seems hard; but, because you keep at it, the process becomes easier and with practice it becomes more like second-nature to you. You then master those math problems or your body gets into better shape!


Those Fast-Moving Particles

You are full of tiny, fast-moving particles that shape you as a human being. In order to change what is on the outside change must begin INWARDLY. Your mindset CREATES your new reality. You hold so much power within you and you CAN master your mindset with the proper guidance and support system. You CAN manifest anything and everything you truly desire into your life. At ANY given moment in time you can CHOOSE to think and create in ANY direction you decide. You get a choice. You get to choose in this moment, right now. Furthermore, by living through your soul’s truest purpose, those inspired ideas that pop into your head (I call them your soul’s nudges) allow you to SHOW the Universe what you truly desire into your life, thus speeding up the manifestation process. So take those inspired actions, sensational soul!

Are You Going To Make The Rest Of Your Life The Best Of Your Life?

We are NOT promised tomorrow, we have today, right now. Do you want to continue down the same path you are currently on? Or, do you want to set your intentions and CREATE your new physical reality? How do you want to think back on your present and feel about it? How do you WANT to live your life? Do you want to live it full of regret as the main driving source? What do you WANT to be able to think and say 6 months from now, a year from now, 10 years from now (however much time we have on this planet)?

As I told this person yesterday during our conversation, “As long as you are still breathing, and you haven’t croaked yet, it is NEVER too late to start living the life you truly desire and be happy.”

And I wholeheartedly believe this. You ARE worthy of being happy. You ARE worthy of living the life your soul truly wants to live. And your mindset and soul ARE one with the Universe, they work together simultaneously. You ARE in control of your own new reality. You ARE in the driver’s seat, so where do you want to go and who do you want to be? How do you want to leave your mark on this earth? You can do this, I believe in you.


Carpe Diem!
