The Wake-Up Call Show: Uptown Funky Walk? (Video with my family!)

Dearest One,

The other day we were having a dance break watching the hit song Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars. Annabella, my 7 1/2 year old, was grooving and singing at the top of her lungs. The break it down section comes on with the words “Uptown funk you up, uptown funk you up” and I hear Annabella jamming saying, “Uptown funky walk, uptown funky walk.” Clearly better lyrics.

So today I was guided to created an uptown funky walk dance break video just for you with my entire family. Yes you’ll even see Evie Rose cutting a rug! We hope it makes you smile laugh and brings some glee into your heart. Check out our 2 minute uptown funky walk video here with my entire family!

We’re celebrating so much over here at The Ahlers household!evie piano

If you can believe it, my sweet little baby girl Evie Rose is turning 1 tomorrow! It feels unimaginable to me.

It seems like just yesterday I was holding her in my arms for the very first time after a quick and natural birth, one of the greatest joys and challenges of my life (you can read more about her birth story here).

Evie is our long-awaited second baby that we dreamed of for over two years. She is such a light in my life and in our family. She’s filled with so much joy and laughter and giggles and curiosity and absolute mischievousness.

AND we’re getting ready to celebrate my new baby that is due…

RYIMG coverMy book baby! Yes that’s right my next book, Reform Your Inner Mean Girl: 7 Steps to Stop Bullying Yourself and Start Loving Yourself, comes out from Simon and Schuster’s Beyond Words in print on April 7th. Wowzie!

I co-authored this book with my phenomenal partner at Inner Mean Girl Reform School, Christine Arylo and it’s based on our Internationally celebrated program. I cannot wait to share this book baby with you.

Be on the lookout for all sorts of invitations and inspiring goodies, including the invitation to our launch parties & Inner Mean Girl transformation workshops on April 11th in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles launch party on April 25th. Please mark your calendar now.

Whew-what an amazing adventure!

I hope you’ll take a moment today and celebrate the goodness in your life.
Sending you much love and an uptown funky walk,

P. S. Why not do a dance break at some point today and allow every cell of your being to fill up with energy and enthusiasm and passion for life? YES!

P.P.S. If you need to take a moment to breathe, check out my dear friend, Steve Sisgold with his new Mindful Moment video featuring 2 minutes of Conscious Breathing. YUM!
