VEV HEY VAV

“I awaken remorse in my heart for prior misdeeds. I accept the frank spiritual truth that problems in my life are the result of past actions. By concentrating on this Name I will now uproot the negative seeds that I’ve planted and in doing so I transform my past, reshape the present, and create a future full of joy and fulfillment.”

In the past month, this has become my mantra. Over and Over, I repeat this meditational saying when I’m anxious, when I’m confused and when I’m trying to move forward. Everyday is a new day and everyday we are presented with the opportunity to be better than we were yesterday.

While this saying brings much calmness to my life, it also helps me identify the things I’ve done yesterday that may be causing a problem today. I’ll be the first to admit, pointing fingers is far more easy than taking responsibility for our own actions. But here’s the thing, by playing the blame game, we put ourself in a direct competition with the person next to us… a cyclical recipe for an unfulfilled life. By focusing on the above Name, we accept responsibility for the person we are right now. Moreover, we release to the pressure to compete with our friends, family, boyfriends, girlfriends, etc… and began to work on reshaping our own lives. We take back the control that often gets lost in controlling others.

Reflect on this saying.
Travel back to the root of your problems.
Idenditfy the seed cause(s).
Identify your reaction(s).
Make a change in your attitude, mind & heart.
Infuse your life with NEW light and POWERFUL energy.

Transform. Reshape. Create. 

Much Love,

Callie

It’s your life.

by Callie England on November 21, 2013

itsyourlife

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.

In the past few months, I’ve found myself lost in my business. Lost in investment, lost in other peoples visions and lost in the pressure to succeed. I started to question my ability to grow the Rawxies brand in an non-traditional manner and slowly found myself floating away in BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER!! I threw myself into CircleUp and analyzed other businesses — I memorized their backend, choked down the reality of their debt and accepted that my business would be just the same. I heard myself saying all or nothing things like ‘I can only succeed this way’, or ‘it has to be done that way’. But something was off… I was losing my vision.

Two years ago, around this same time, I spoke with my best friend for the last time. As I hung up the phone, I remember gasping for air in tears and thinking ‘I want out of California NOW!!’ It was a light bulb kind of moment – where everything you already know, hits you like a freight train and you remember who you are and what is truly most important to you. While I lost Nick a few weeks later, that moment will never leave me.

When I reflect back on losing Nick and the impact he had on my life, there is always one recurring lesson: You only live once and tomorrow is not guaranteed. It sounds cliche, but then you lose someone so close to you at 27 and that cliche becomes (as mentioned above) a freight train boarded with cold-harsh reality.

During the same time of the year, I’ve had a similar realization and have met someone who has brought me back to my original vision. An also subtle reminder that those we lose often manifest themselves into other people we eventually meet along the way. Angels in the realist form.

Fact is, I don’t want to lose my business… and more importantly, I don’t want to lose myself in my business. I have a goal, a vision and a plan for the Rawxies brand. And dammit, I’m not ready to give that up! Moreover, I don’t want to hate everyday in hopes for an eventual peak… something that’s not even guaranteed! The only guarantee we have in this life, is the present… everything else, is just a hope, a wish and a dream. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t have goals, I’m just saying we shouldn’t LIVE for those goals.

As the quote above says, design happiness for the present moment and make today the best damn day ever… Dream it, build it and LIVE it!

Much love,

Callie

Learning to be ok with being disliked

10.27.2013

“If your number one goal is to make sure that everyone likes and approves of you, then you risk sacrificing your uniqueness, and, therefore, your excellence.” ~Unknown Spend any amount of time with me and you’ll quickly realize, I’m somewhat of a people-pleasing perfectionist… While I like to think at times it’s the reason I [...]

Vote with your dollar: Why I will never spend a penny in Walmart again.

08.12.2013

It’s not very often you will find me schlepping through the isles of Walmart, but there are those times, that out of convenience, you will find me picking up a cart full of groceries/household goods. To be honest, I’ve never had that much beef with the big box retailer, I’ve just always chosen to support [...]

Window cracked, holler back, money ain’t a thang…

07.17.2013

I start each week off more scared and more excited than the last. Seriously. I’m crazy. But that’s the beauty of being an entrepreneur… We are ALL crazy. And don’t even think about denying such a claim… I spoke on a panel at this year’s CSC Intern Round-up a few weeks back here in Kansas [...]

Live accordingly.

05.01.2013

“Happiness can exist only in acceptance.” For myself, Rawxies has become a glorified acceptance of self. Everything about this brand represents who I am as a person and the journey along the way. Creative, colorful, non-apologetic, mainstream, healthy, progressive and much more. Rawxies has become the platform on which I stay true to the things [...]

Rawxies is 2!

03.31.2013

2 years ago, on this very day, I trademarked the Rawxies brand. I had no clue where I was headed, but I did know, I had something great. And for once, I truly believed in a vision that I knew eventually would be much greater than myself. I threw the naysayers to the wind, and [...]

Bulk Juicing

03.01.2013

I’m not afraid to admit when I’ve fallen off the wagon. And yes, I slightly fell off the wagon. Ok, who am I kidding, I like freaking jumped off the wagon while it was barreling down the highway at 70 MPH… and let me tell you, there was no such landing upon escape. That is, [...]

Rawxies + 1 Million Cups

02.15.2013

One of the most rewarding things about owning a business, is the personal growth that has come as a result of constantly stepping outside of my comfort zone. Sales, financial risk, public speaking – I come across at least one thing each week (or day) that pushes me beyond what I knew I was capable of. I [...]

Bittersweet.

02.08.2013

Bittersweet. Letting go of a chapter that has opened up so many doors, in pursuit of growing into another chapter with many more opportunities. As you may notice, the Rawxy blog (well, the name) no longer exist. Gone. Done. Bye. It was a hard part, but like I stated above, I know it’s for the [...]
