Her Wisdom - Meg Adams


Today I'm starting my new blog series Her Wisdom, I wanted to bring to you an interview series of women who I have come to know and who's influence, kindness and wisdom has had an impact on me at some point in my life. I wanted to bring you a refection of their life, who their influences are, the wisdom that has inspired them and the things in their life that bring them a sense of strength and comfort so I could share this all with you, I hope you enjoy getting to know them as much as I have.

First up is a lovely Canadian lady who I had the privilege of learning from last year when I took her 30 Day Blogging Bootcamp. Her knowledge and support has helped boost my blogging confidence and focus and pushed me forward to make some exciting plans for the future. Let me introduce you to Meg Adams...

 

How do you start your day? Can you tell us more about the first 3 things you have to do to get your day started?

My most successful and balanced days are the ones where I workout in the morning. I will go to my CrossFit class at 6AM, and after that I’ll have coffee and breakfast. I’ll then head to my home office and start checking email and my social media networks /feeds for important news of the day.

 

Share your favorite piece of wisdom and why it means something to you.

We are human “beings” not human “doings”. I always smile when I hear this statement. We are often so hard on ourselves believing that we are doing enough, or good enough. That simply isn’t true. Life is about discovery, and “being” - whatever that looks like to each one of us.

 

What is your go to thing for comfort when it all gets too much?

Physical activity, typically in the form of a Crossfit workout. It really re-calibrates and grounds me. It gets me back into my own body and feeling grateful. This outlet is a great balance of physical, emotional and spiritual.
And my schnoodle, Lola is a great source of comfort. Going for a walk with Lola is always good for a chuckle as well as helps to ground me by being in nature and getting fresh air.

 

Who are the women that inspire you?

First, my Mom. She does everything with such grace and kindness. There is not a person she would not help in any way she can. Mom has always been like this. She has also always supported me in all my decisions, especially the one to start my own business.And all the women I work alongside. It’s those who are in the trenches, working everyday to make themselves a better person while working to improve the world in a little way through their gifts and talents that keep always keep me inspired. We often think we need to do something “so BIG” that our hard work and dedication leading up to that point is irrelevant. It’s facing the day to day “grind” with joy, fearlessness and trust that makes the “big” stuff happen.

 

How do you see yourself and what makes up your sense of identity?  

My identity and sense of Self has really transformed in the last couple years. I have learned that measuring my worth to others’ perceived successes is harmful and not constructive. I see myself as a dedicated partner to anyone looking to share their gifts and talents with their world. I honor my intuition and sense of spirituality, and seek to integrate that with my love of everything social and techy!

 

Do you have a favorite dish or recipe that makes you feel good or gives you a much needed boost?

 Anything from my crockpot! I love it because it makes me feel like a “real” chef. And I love the smell it gives off the entire day, almost as much as eating it. Gives me the illusion I am a better cook than I am!

 

What's challenging you right now?

I am in a very transitory position in my life. I am thankful for the new adventures coming my way and the challenge to live my life on my own terms. I am moving to California from Calgary, Alberta and am undergoing a bit of a grieving process while balancing it with my excitement.

 

Tell us more about your latest or next project.

I have recently rolled out from Divine Blueprint offerings (Business, Book and Online). What they do is incorporate my intuition and ability to access the Akashic Records along with my online marketing experience and business-savvy to help people understand and get to the heart of how they can start a business, market their book, or create an online presence in an authentic and powerful way.

If you want to connect with Meg or know more about what she does, and I highly recommend that you do, you can find her at her amazing website Meg the Media Maven or on Twitter @socialMegAdams and Facebook

I would like to say a huge thank you to Meg for being my first interviewee and for being so patient with me for getting this up and going!
