The list of things-to-do and things- NOT-to-do

The phenomenon of lists of things-to-do is quite interesting.

As adults, we create lists, schedules, calendars, bucket lists and maybe even more so we feel in control of our lives. The notes, post-its, and notebooks piled up on our desk reminding us every single morning what we are here to do. The notifications on our phones or computers pop up constantly so we are not drawn to other activities. Once all of it shows up as soon as we wake up, the only thing we want to do is run away.

But wait a minute, do you want to run away from this precisely, well organized and super controlled system you have created for yourself? Doesn’t that sound ridiculous? Shouldn’t that be the system you truly want in your life?


It seems it’s not. It definitely feels heavy, overwhelming, and frustrating. As soon as we see all of those calendars on the desk and hear the millionth notification on our phone, we get anxious and stressed. The stress level rises up quickly, so by mid-day, we are a bundle of nervousness.


Does that sound like you? Does that resonate with you at all?

What does it take an adult to start creating the lists of things NOT-TO-DO? To be able to slow down, space out, take it easy and trust that things will be done anyway?


Have you ever considered creating such a list? Why not?


The idea came from the most intuitive human being on this planet, which is a child.

Ok, Izabela, what do you mean a child?


I mean that children are the most intuitive human beings on this planet. They dream big, they don’t plan and they don’t overstress. And somehow things get done for them in the most appropriate time, with great results. And I am not talking about the fact that you, adults, help them with things, restrict them from performing the way they want, limit their abilities and create the stories which are not theirs. If you would ever let the kid create, play, and do things they want, they would come up with such ideas, amazing stories and unlimited dreams, which they would truly believe they can accomplish.


If we would ever be able to come back to that mindset and start leading with our intuition, the life would be easier. If we would ever allow ourselves to play, enjoy and take a pride in every single accomplishment, the life would be so loving. If we would ever start dreaming big again, there would be so many magical things happening in this world.


In kid’s world, there are no limits or fears. There is curiosity, trial, and desire. There is questioning of everything so the next step can be taken with full awareness. There is that wonderment which allows them to walk towards their dreams until they are stopped by ‘you can’t do this’. Then they meet the ‘adult reality’, full of stress, control, limitations and misery with themselves.


Why can’t we simply smile, love and be curious as kids are?

Why can’t we simply create lists of things not-to-do EVER?


What would that list look like for you today?

The letter to my gift and my life purpose

Dear gift,

I haven’t had any clue for a long time what is my life purpose, what is my gift!

I haven’t had any idea why I am here.

So many times, I wanted to disappear and just leave this life.

But also, so many times I got back,

to the present moment,

to the awareness of my mission,

to the unknown life purpose,

to that, someone wanting or needing me to be.


The unclear mission, blurry life purpose, questionable gift, and the unknown path.

Asking so many times….

Why me? What for? What is there? Who am I? how do I do it? When is my time? What is it? Where should I be? How should I show up? How could I serve? How could I see that I am meant to be here?

Am I?


Today I sit and all I know is

that I am the one in seven billion,

that I am unique,

that there are nothing and nobody like me,

that I am loved, that I am supported,

that I do care about my soul,

that I do care about your soul.


Today I know there is a wonderland and wonderment where we all belong.

I know that my life wisdom, experiences, and lessons are my true gift, which is seen as soon as I stop hiding, putting the mask on and speak up.

That’s the moment when I feel I have a gift – the gift of a true identity seeker, uncovering something that was brutally kicked into the corner – myself and yourself!

My mission is to show every single woman that she is not who she is now, that she is not who she should be or other told her to be.


However, there is a danger warning here;

Once you uncover who you truly are, real things happen and huge changes are coming – the changes which are dangerous to everyone around you, especially those you were trying to please, make happy, or those who were trying to make you small.


My gift is to create the earthquake in your life,

My gift is to initiate the tsunami in your mind,

My gift is to extend the storm in your soul,

My gift is to ignite the fire in your heart,

My gift is to open the valve to flood your potentials with the unlimited energy.


My gift is to change the way you see, hear, smell, taste, feel and sense anything in your life, including yourself. Because I can see the person you are hiding behind.

And if I can see her, that means she exists!

That means she better come out for the highest good of this life, for the highest good of her life!


Dear gift,

Serve me well so I can create that explosion in every women’s hearts so they can become finally who they really are!!


Love you beYOUtiful ❤




Letter to my Inner Child

Dear Izabelka,

Dear my beloved Inner Child,


I wanted to start with the words of apologies and then words of appreciation!


I want to apologize for abandoning you for all my life.

I want to apologize for not hearing your voice, your scream and begging to be saved, protected and loved.

I want to apologize, from the depth of my heart, for not seeing your innocent beauty.

I want to apologize for being blind and deaf to your presence.

I want to apologize and beg for your forgiveness today.


Because today I realized how scared you’ve been. I can see how lonely you’ve been all the life despite me being so close. I know I left you behind, like the most cold-hearted person, and refused to listen, hear and feel you. I admit that I lived as a one-minded person who tried all her life to dismiss the deepest emotions of yours. I am aware of how zombie-like life I was creating without incorporating you in it. I apologize Izabelka.


I am so grateful that you are still with me.

I am so grateful that I came back home and recognized your presence.

I am so appreciative for reuniting with the biggest love of mine, you.

I am so happy I could see how scared you were and provide you with safety, we both so needed.

I am thankful to see how much you’ve been craving love and start giving it to both of us.

I am so happy you are with me!


You are the bravest and the strongest woman I have ever met!

How wonderful is that to share the life, love, magic and the beauty with you!

I love you to the moon and back! ❤


I promise to never ever leave you alone.

I promise to never ever leave you unprotected and insecure.

I promise to never ever leave you unloved.


Yours forever,


‘I just want to tell you that you are safe.’ as soon as I said that, she hugged me again on my hips and I could hear her little and quick breath of relief. Her body relaxed and she kept holding onto me. It appeared to me as she wanted to stay with me. So, I decided to be there just for her. ‘You are safe’.  She repeated ‘I am safe, I am safe, I am safe.’

[excerpt from my book “True Identity” – Summer 2018]

The wonderful power of “yes”

The movie I am about to share is called “Yes man” with Jim Carrey. Yes, it is a comedy.

How funny is that that I usually don’t watch comedies, especially American comedies, because as a foreigner many times I found myself frustrated not knowing what they are joking about or simply not understanding this type of humor. However, as part of the Valentine’s Day promise to myself that I want to spend it with a free spirit, totally joyful and playful, we decided to watch this comedy.

The movie was funny and powerful at the same time. I am not going to elaborate on the story or jokes. I would love to, however, bring attention to the lessons and conclusions I took from it and I found very magical. I want to deliver them to you so they can empower you as they did for me!


How does saying ‘no’ play a role in our life?

We say ‘no’ to the friend’s wedding invitations, we say ‘no’ to the stranger on the street needing help, we say ‘no’, I don’t have time, to the spouse or kids, we say ‘no’ to ourselves a million times a day. Am I wrong? If yes, please comment below and call me out on that! I’ll take it!


How does saying ‘yes’ to the opportunities in your life play a role for you?

I bet, there are many opportunities in your life such changing the job, quitting smoking, deciding on healthier food choices, breaking up with the toxic relationship, publishing a book, opening a business you dream about, saying ‘I love you”, or becoming a happier and funnier person. How many of those have you literally overlooked, or intentionally missed, or simply said ‘no’ to?

Again, I am 100% confident, that you did, and most likely to many of those. They showed up in your life, your intuition told you to go for it, and your fearful mindset just blew the chance out! How do you feel about it? Fulfilled? Happy? Empowered? Or maybe like a loser? Or hopeless?


That movie showed with simple life stories what is the life of constant ‘no’ to the living versus a life with ‘yes’ to the opportunities. And, at the same time as in the movie, there is a limit of saying ‘no’ or ‘yes’ to the situations or people. We are constantly reminded of the fact that we need to learn how to say ’no’ to so many things, events, and people in order to protect our time, energy and boundaries. However, we are never told that the word ‘yes’ is as powerful as it can be in its own meaning.


The moment you say ‘yes’ to the opportunity, it is like putting the key in the lock and twisting it. Suddenly the door squeak and release showing you just a little hole to peak through it. That little space to look through gives you the image of a totally different view, just like in The Secret Garden movie.

Don’t you want to go there and explore? Aren’t you curious what your life might bring once you give it a chance?

I can’t express more how exciting it is to say ‘yes’ to the opportunity, which may seem super scary at first, but how wonderfully inviting it is to the eyes of those who commit.

Don’t be a loser! Don’t give up on your dreams.

Don’t regret that you didn’t say ‘yes’ to the possibilities which your life presented you today!!!


You got this beYOUtiful! ❤

The letter to my body

Dear Body,

I want to start with telling you how sorry I am for who I was to you throughout last 36 years of our life.

I am sorry for seeing you as a shame, not wanting to even look at you in the mirror.

I am sorry for seeing you as fat after giving you only a little salad or stuffing you with only coffee the whole day.

I am sorry for expecting you to not be swollen, itchy or yellow-skinned after feeding you with sugar loaded crap and processed food.

I am sorry for always wanting to exchange you for something better than you were.

I am sorry for putting you through the pain of constant starvation, dieting, and purging.

I am sorry for not recognizing how amazingly you worked for me every single day without any injuries and major health issues.

I am sorry for not being content with you even after the super heavy workout routine, which didn’t leave you happy at all.

I am sorry for being disgusted by you.

I am sorry for hurting you physically.

I am sorry for using you in ways I feel ashamed of now.

I am sorry for feeling only negative emotions towards you.

I am sorry for always seeing other bodies better than you.

I am sorry for crying as soon as I saw you naked, not happy about what I saw.

I am sorry that I made myself so unhappy in you.

I am sorry for hurting you so deeply despite the love you gave me since I was born.

I am sorry…

and these apologies are the hardest I have ever expressed.


However, the appreciation I have today for you is unlimited.

The promise I have for you today is going to change everything.

I always wanted to be loved! You loved me unconditionally all the time.

I never did.


The promise is that….

I love you and will always do!!!!

The love letter to myself

A few months ago, I wrote a letter. The love letter from my Future Self to my Recent Self.

The Future Self who is empowered, in alignment and in peace with herself, decided to give some words of encouragement to the woman standing here and writing to you right now. The letter is very open, vulnerable and authentic. Just the way I wanted to be to read it now, and every day.

My desire for you is that this letter will shift some energy within you so you can see your own beauty, worth and true identity under the mask you are wearing. My intention for you is that the letter below will encourage you to write the one for yourself. Don’t overthink or analyze it, just after you finish reading, grab a pen and write some words to yourself. Be loving, kind and non-judgmental.

My wish for you is that you see how beYOUtiful and worthy you are!

Because you are!!!


Dear Izabela,

WOW, what a journey, what a life changer!!!! I am so incredibly proud of you for making the step to create a new chapter in your life. I remember the hope and help you were looking for, and how finding that was totally price-independent. I knew that day that this is it, and I was so right!! Thank you, Universe, for giving me that opportunity at just the right time in my life and for not allowing my self-destructive doubts, hesitations and sabotaging creep in and prevent me from doing it!!!! I finally invested in my own self!!!!

I am so happy today! The real, raw, pure, and deep happiness inside of me! The happiness I was craving all 36 years!

I am confident! With my inner self, with my inner voice and thoughts, with my body, every single part of my body. I am confident with myself by myself when it’s quiet and it’s only me, my reflections, my inner voice, my inner child and my inner women!

I am emotionally stable. I am comfortable with my fears and my pains. I recognize them, I let them be and let them teach me.

For the first time, I am confident and proud to be a woman. I feel finally sexy, hot, attractive, comfortable naked and even seductive in a very feminine way!!! OMG, how much I wanted to be that woman!!!!

I am free of that messed up bulimia and binge eating!!! I AM FREE….it makes me feel so light knowing that I do not violent and hate my body anymore.

I AM FREE OF SELF-HATE – I am free forever! Those hateful moments towards myself are gone! How could I possibly do that to myself? That was so scary, so hurting, so painful – and it is GONE!!!!! I am love. I am a vessel of pure love. I do love. I share the love. I treat myself with love.

I am free of anxiety and depression – because I am finally feeling present, aligned with myself, truly aligned with my core values, inner voice and instincts. Finally, I am able to silent my mind and listen to the voice inside, to the Universe.

I am grateful! I see opportunities and beautiful gifts every minute, each day of my life!

I am finally moving with the flow, in every area of my life. I understood how huge resistance I was creating around me and I worked that out!!! I allowed myself to grow, to flourish, to expand and to create amazing things I always dreamt about! Now I am ready to live fully, and change lives around me!

I am a positive person with a positive energy radiating from me. The energy which changes lives, which allows me to see every single event, moment, and person in my life as the best thing that could ever happen to me!

I allow the energy to propel me to create huge things in all areas of my life. I live my life creating only positive energy around and within me.

I am empowered! I am driven! I am strong! I am truly and deeply that person, feeling unstoppable, limitless and fearless not only in the business, fitness, life but most importantly, mentally and emotionally!

I am giving myself NOW the acceptance of myself the way I am; of not being perfect; of not being in full control. I am forgiving myself for mistakes and imperfections. I am relaxed and enjoying life the way it is given to me! Now I learn from every single experience and mistake. I truly see failures as great lessons.

I am happy for the first time that I am alive. I can celebrate now my birthdays ❤

I BELIEVE IN MYSELF!! THAT IS HUGE!!!! Finally, Izabela you see yourself as amazing, powerful, strong, persistent, successful, limitless, life-changing, balanced, aligned, peaceful, confident and sexy woman.

I am free of past, free of abusive past and voices, which were limiting my beautiful soul, heart and mind from growing, creating, being, loving! I am so extremely happy I am free of that past! Now I can live, I can see myself flourishing and being nurturing to my body, soul, mindset, heart and my wonderful dreams and visions. Now I can be fearless and doubt-less and calmly and confidently look forward to my future. Because finally, I learned that I am a creator of my life!!!

I am at peace with my past, too! I forgave those who hurt me! I forgave myself for being so hurtful, too! I finally know how to forgive! I am grateful for this gift to learn! It is totally life changing!

I am free of the fear of rejection and judgment! I understand that I am me. I always knew that I want to be myself, true, authentic, raw, and real – and now I know I will be real! Free of fear of rejection! Because I am beautiful and I am loved!!!! I always was attracted to honesty and authenticity – that was always one of my drives, my internal voice ❤

I love myself! I respect myself! I never thought I will embrace and understand that aspect! How mistaken was I! I can carry entire world on my shoulders now based on that energy coming from self-love and self-acceptance within me!

I am so looking forward to empowering others, to help other girls and ladies within my beYOUtiful coaching services. I am so excited about publishing my autobiography, self-help books, and cookbooks! I am ready to spread the love. I am open to creative opportunities for getting and earning more money.

I AM A BLESSING! I AM UNIQUE! I AM SPECIAL! I AM ONE IN BILLIONS! I AM A DREAM! I create amazing things in my life with no self-doubts, no self-hesitation, and no fear!!!! There is no fear, just LOVE!

My dreams are coming true!!! They do because I was my own dream which just came true!!! Creating Izabela ❤


I LOVE YOU beYOUtiful! ❤ “



I am HERE. I am NOW. I am ME. ❤


My biggest teachings of 2017

What a year.

I know it’s almost a month since it ended. I needed to take some reflective moments to see what that year brought into my life, and digest all feelings and emotions which came with 2018. I like to take my time. I have rushed many things in the past, and this year is the year of YES for myself. Hence, no rush; just calmness, stillness, openness and listening to my inner voice what it has to tell me. Oh boy o’ boy, it is a lot to listen and more to think about.

2017: Wild. Abandoned. Incredible. Hurt. Life-changing. Mind-blowing. Love-bringing. Heart-opening. Creative. Depressive. Magical. Guided.


Here are my top 6 life lessons I learned during 2017:

  1. I can’t heal anybody’s insecurities. They can hurt you at first. However, that revelation brought a relief once I realized the issue is not with me; and even if it is, now I know what I need to heal within myself. Without putting up with others crap.
  2. Challenges are exciting, and changes even more. The more of those, the stronger I became. The more of those, the more room for improvement and opportunities showed up for me. In uncertainty lies creation!
  3. The Universe will always make things happen as you wished. Watch what you are asking the Universe for. It listens. And it will make everything possible, so you get what you asked for, even if you didn’t plan for that yet.
  4. Listen to your intuition. No matter what. It will never ever put me down or guide me to the wrong direction. How life-changing was that.
  5. Invest in yourself – time and money. It will pay back incredibly well. I don’t want to even count the time and money wasted on something what was resolved within a couple of weeks of well invested coaching and materials.
  6. Presence, spirituality, ME-times, mindfulness – whatever you resonate with, each means the same: be with yourself comfortable. Being with myself was the best medicine for all my anxieties, problems, issues and depression! Believe it or not! It is!


Now, I’ve got question to you: what are YOUR top 3 lessons you learned in 2017?

Grab your favorite notebook or journal, write them down and read, see and observe how did those make you feel.

I’d love to see your experiences and lessons. Please share below or on my social media, I love hearing from you 😊


You got this beYOUtiful! ❤

The 6 books which changed my life

There is no doubt in the fact that reading books makes us smarter, wiser and more creative. It broadens up the vison of the world and opens up our minds to so many more amazing things. To me, it is the best way to grow mentally, spiritually, emotionally, physically, financially and whatever else I wish to improve my life at.

To make the story short, many of you asked me what beYOUtiful coach is reading. I will share with you six books which changed my life in many aspects. Books are listed in a random order. They all played a significant role in my life transformations.


  1. “The ONE thing” by Gary Keller

That book is a must for everyone who is thinking that multitasking is a good thing. How detrimental that actually could be to your performance and effectiveness is explained in this book. It guides you through tasks and tips how to focus on that ONE thing in order to perform effectively and be successful in a shorter but more organized time. Grab that book if you are like me: procrastinating, multitasking and wondering why there is never enough time to actually finish the major projects.

“Until my one thing is done – everything else is a distraction!”

@garykeller @the1thingbook


  1. “Twelve pillars” by Jim Rohn and Chris Widener

This book was so empowering to me that I dedicated it a totally separated whole blog:

“My actions are the proof that my words are true.”



  1. “Spartan Up” by Joe De Sena

You don’t need to be a Spartan Obstacle Race runner to read this book. Even more, you definitely want to grab this book if you are looking for a straightforward, honest and to the point view of living. Joe doesn’t sugar coat, and everyone knows him as that. Joe speaks up and doesn’t bent over to make things easier so people accept him or accomplish any kind of goal without an actual work put in. Joe doesn’t tolerate a lot of issues in today’s world and he is proud of that. I praise him for his approach to life. I praise him for his real picture of what would this world look like if we choose the route of self-improvement without being needy of nowadays shiny objects and external validation. Believe me, you will remember this book for the rest of your life, once you read it! Mind blowing read!

“Become comfortable with uncomfortable.”



  1. “Feel the fear and do it anyway” by Susan Jeffers

I grabbed this book when I reached the point when my fears held me from doing anything. Literally anything. If you are experiencing morning anxieties, lack of motivation, dragging around the work place or at home, having no desire to pursue any activities, feeling down and lost – this is a book for you! This life changer showed up in my life just on time. And I promise you, it will most likely be the one for you, too.

“Go home and say ‘thank you’ to your spouses.”



  1. “The school of greatness” by Lewis Howes

Imagine the collection of the most successful tips you could ever get in one handy book. Tips coming from many successful people Lewis interviewed on his very powerful podcast. The book is so loaded with mind-blowing inspirational stories, with motivational mantras and tasks which will accelerate your strengths and willpower to the moon. If you are exhausted of all self-help books and materials all around you, flooding your mind, and you are looking for a great one-volume solution – there you have it!

“You can go as slow as you need to go, but you cannot stop.”



  1. “The universe has your back” by Gabrielle Bernstein

I can’t even express how much this book change my spirituality. It is not about religion, it is not about being obsessed and becoming isolated from world or going into volunteer solitude. It is about changing the fears into faith through trust, love, forgiveness, sharing magic and being a miracle. If that sounds to you like voodoo, then grab this book and see what I mean. It is pure magical. The way you will look at yourself and the world around you, including your own household, is a total life changer.

“We buy into the belief that a meaningful life requires struggle. It can have so devastating consequences in your life. […] Life is meant to be joyful and easy.”



So here you have it!

I would love to hear your experiences with either the books I listed or maybe some book you read and would love to share how it changed your life. I love hearing from you!

You got this beYOUtiful! ❤



Don’t value yourself based on someone else’s price of themselves…

Would you be able to estimate the dollar amount value of yourself?

How much would you cost?


Are you saying that you are priceless?

Did I hear that well?


Let me take you through the evaluation process of how much you may cost.

  • Cleaning lady with additional request to do laundry
  • Baby-sitter with additional request to cook for kids
  • Personal cook
  • Personal entertaining person
  • Personal grocery shopping person
  • Car cleaning and vacuuming services
  • Landscaping company
  • Home-based teacher for kids’ homework
  • Personal chauffeur
  • Personal nurse and care giver


Did I forget anything?

I may. I forgot the energetic actions despite the tiredness, caring smile despite the frustration. I didn’t mention the nurturing love despite self-hate and nourishment despite lack of self-care.


Someone said, that if women were about to receive the exact pay for every job they do, they would be the richest individuals on this planet.


People will judge, evaluate, estimate and tell you that you are too much, or too expensive. Well, if that is the case, look back at them and ask them, how expensive do they feel right now? What value do they bring to your life, their life or the life of others? Are THEY expensive?


Inexpensive in somebody’s eyes may mean a huge treasure in others eyes.


Let me voice this:

I am speaking to you right now, yes YOU, beYOUtiful lady!!!


Stop underestimating yourself.  Stop hiding. Stop apologizing for your being. Don’t dress down to blend in. Don’t shut up when you know you need to speak up. Stop saying what you think people want to hear. Stop trying to be polite and please everyone.

The real rejection is the rejection of yourself.

Love and be honest. Love and be YOU. Own your wins. Own your successes. Own your power and energy. Own your beauty and attractiveness. Own your voice. Own yourself.

YOU are expensive and you deserve to be treated that way!


With love,

I am HERE. I am NOW. I am ME. ❤

True to Yourself.

Happy New Year beYOUtiful world ❤️
Reading all the amazing commitments, wishes and mantras for the upcoming 365 days makes me feel empowered, happy and joyful. It is magical to see the love and light being spread, people wanting to serve and help others, and the beautiful mindset of every single of you.
Who would you like to be at the end of this year?

How are you going to live those 52 weeks?

Who would you like to serve?

How are you going to bring light, love and hope to this world?
As I enter this magical New Year, I ask myself those questions, too. I ask myself: who did I became, how did I live, who did I serve and how did I spread love and light around me in 2017?

As I dig deep I see how important it is to be TRUE TO YOURSELF. What a great transformation can occur when one allows themselves the permission to heal. When you don’t get stuck with the opinions and suggestions of others, rather make a choice to connect back to the deeper, innate, real YOU. The YOU which is there since you were born, but got all covered up by the external worldly influence.
What does actually being true to yourself mean?

* it is when you hear your intuition and act upon it

* it is when you feel emotion and you accept it the way it is

* it is when you feel pain and you allow it to be the teacher on the path to your better self

* it is when you choose to be joyful and happy in moments of despair

* it is when your energy allows others to see the real versions in themselves

* it is when you don’t hide, or put a mask on your face, because you are allowed to be vulnerable

* it is when your real and authentic self becomes so sexy that it attracts others,

* it is when getting up every day is the another chance to be love and light.
It all sounds super voodoo and hocus pocus, I get it! However, the moment you tap into that aspect, your own mind will be blown away from disbelief how powerful and wonderful your life and self-being is.


With love for this 2018,

Izabela 🌹🦋🙏❤️


I am HERE. I am NOW. I am ME. ❤
