Meet Kalea Mullett. My wild and heart-centered beautiful friend. This girl lights me up from across the world and fuels my soul when we are next to each other. I am so grateful for her friendship and am crazy proud to see her launching her own business to share and spread her love and knowledge.
I asked Kalea a few questions and here is what she had to say.....
1. What gets you up in the morning?
The desire to help and feel connected is what gets me out of bed each morning. I'm filled with excitement for the people I'll greet with words of encouragement, nature to inspire my mind and offer wisdom for living simply and garbage to find a better place for. I am amazed at how the universe thanks me for living the life I have chosen, being here to help build community and care for this beautiful planet in the process. Sometimes I see a breathtaking sunset, colourful bird feather, unique shell, freshly fallen avocado, sweet smelling flower or new friend to share the open road with. Actions do not go unnoticed. Having watched my sister come into the world with ill health and struggle on a daily basis to have the strength and well-being that so many of us are blessed with, I am mindful not to take mine for granted, and try to make the most of each precious day! Being of service to share experiences and enhance others health and happiness is my main motivator, and I choose to create positive relationships that support and elevate one another.
2. What is your morning routine to tap into your ideal mindset?
I wake up and smile, as BIG as I can until I feel that gratitude wash over my body for the simple joy of being alive! Then I take myself outside, no matter the season, to move my body, pump the blood through my muscles to my brain while connecting to the environment. This allows me to step into an attitude of gratitude, reflect on my blessings and the abundance all around and channel that out into my day. Sometimes I listen to upbeat inspiring tunes, a unique audio book or other times I sing! When I stretch my body, I repeat abundance affirmations and write down what it is that I'm working on that day and get busy!
3. What was your biggest failure that turned into the best thing that ever happened to you?
Great question! Walking away from my gifts, skills and experience based on limiting beliefs (catch the lie in the middle of be-LIE-f). Which lead to plane hopping, deep sadness in isolation as I wandered far from home, removed from my supports and communities who motivate, celebrate and enjoy the beautiful lives we are making up as we go! I feel like I'm in the middle of it at the moment - redefining what it is that I want to share with the world. I'll report back when things are a little clearer.
4. What are three things most people don't know about you?
I've started training for my run, bike, paddle adventure across the Great Trail, spanning 24,000 km across Canada, as a promise I made to my sister and a childhood hero who's lives are worthy of an epic celebration! Another thing people may not know about me is that I have dreams of becoming a dancer. There's something about movement that I can not resist, some free form African style would totally be my jam And lastly.... I have an eye for fashion and architecture. I love how things are put together, from a great outfit to a functional living space. There's something about the feeling it creates that I am truly inspired by. Hence the building of my own tiny house!
5. What are your goals this year?
Create my business which will result in financial abundance and freedom. I have everything I need to succeed, just have to keep working at it every day and value my worth. With some solid planning and insight to start the year, this vision is destined to take flight! Another goal is to venture on an expedition to further my studies of traditional food and medicine with a nomadic tribe. Fuel for my heart and share the teaching of the earth with others.
6. What is your current struggle?
Believing that I am deserving of all the wonders in this world. It is so easy for me to see the potential and brilliance in others, although it doesn't come natural to see that in myself. Although by celebrating with some of the most remarkable humans and sharing whatever it is with them that I can, I believe there is abundance for all, and the world wants me here. Each day I have to check in with myself and remember that I matter, hold value and have a job to do in this beautiful place.
7. What reminder do YOU need to keep yourself motivated this week?
That abundance and success are available to me and always has been. Its simply old worn out stories that no longer fit that are holding me back. Also, this week I have to remember to do one thing at a time, trust in the process and stay open to the guidance of the universe. Today for example I met an extraordinary man at the beach, filled with teachings of the Hawaiian culture. After sharing stories and collecting shells on the beach he invited me to join his outrigger canoe club every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to explore the waters and watch humpback whales in their season of play. This experience would not have happened if I were moving too fast. We must let the experiences catch up to us and grace our lives with their blessings.
8. Where can we find you throughout your week?
This week you can find me running, surfing and exploring the big island of Hawaii. I'll also be crafting up culinary art at my friends beach house, working on my website and enjoying the Waimea farmers market! Sending a little aloha your way.
So much love for you my sweet friend! For more information about Kalea or what she offers, head to her website, link below xoxo
