I deeply appreciate our students.
I have the honor and privilege to work with intelligent, passionate, thoughtful, heart-full women daily. What a gift.
I truly have the “best job” in Washington, DC.
“I wanted to share some awesome ripple effects that have been happening over the past couple of months that I have been working with Pleasance privately and now in Thrive. I have started including my 10 year old daughter Lia in my morning and evening routines and it has been a game changer in my family. She has been really curious about this “Thrive class I am doing with Miss Pleasance.” So, I explained it all to her, showed her my binder of materials and my notebook. I told her I am doing this for her and her Dad, so I can learn take better care of myself, be more healthy and so that I can teach her (and her Dad) how to do the same. I asked her if she has noticed that I have been trying to change and she said “Yes! I feel so much less stressed out.” This stuff works you guys, I’m still beating myself up a little bit about how much I have stressed her out in the past but she sees me trying and it IS making a difference. She is listening. (And so is my husband!) Funny story that just hit me right in the heart: Lia went on a sleepover birthday party a couple of weekends ago and they decorated little tote bags…Lia was so proud of what she written on her bag “Your feelings become your thoughts and your thoughts become your actions”. “Mom look”, she said “it’s what you have been telling me!”. I have been telling her I am working on this too and she is listening! Instead of my usual “hurry up, come on, why are you taking so long” barrage at her morning and night we start and end our days with some deep breathing, visualization of either how great the day will be or what we are thankful for in the day that just happened and then of course snuggles/hugs and some essential oil rubs on our feet. Instead of hurrying her along I make a conscious decision to just meet her where she is, give her hugs and attention and then we are both happy and never late! Ya’ll this is a daily struggle for me and I don’t always “do the right thing” so to speak but now that Lia knows how much I am trying, she is trying too. It is just these small steps that are making a big impact, one little step at a time. I have also been making huge culture shifts at my work with my co-workers around stress, taking better care of our bodies and minds. Pleasance has given me so many amazing tools that I can integrate into my life, I now feel like I am a one woman crusader for health and well being everywhere I go!”CV
