Kate Inspired Mood

The year has flown by and for my next Earth Angel in the series (and the last one for 2015) is Kate Wright. She is soon to be Hay House Author, a Winner of Young Business Executive of the Year (Rhino Awards for Business Excellence), writer for the Dubbo Weekender and runs her own business Inspired Mood and a inspiration to many.

To me Kate is so much more than that. She is a gorgeous soul who has so much to give to the world, beautiful inside and out and I am grateful and proud to say she is my friend.  We have travelled together in Australia and overseas, we’ve made big dreams and plans to change the world over dinner and helped rural women to start Finding An Inspired Life. I always felt uplifted and ready to take on the world in her presence. She will be one of my Bridesmaids next year so will be with Rhys and I on our special day.

I wanted to feature her as an Earth Angel because I see the positive impact she has on people,  her community and I have experienced it myself… I love this girl!

About Kate:

“I’m Kate, the healthy foodie and eternal optimist behind Inspired Mood. I love D&Ms over long blacks, green smoothies or margaritas (depending on my mood) and am a big fan of sunrises/sunsets, dancing and maxi dresses. I also secretly wish I could wear bed/beach hair every day! Inspired Mood is where I share original recipes, weekly meal plans, travel tales and words of wisdom. I believe passion changes everything.”

10 Questions

1.    If I could create awareness on any topic the topic I would choose would be self worth because of the positive ripple effect it can create. I believe:

  • that every single one of us has a purpose in this life

  • that one person can make a difference in the world

  • that everybody can inspire somebody

  • that you cannot pour from an empty cup

  • that everything starts from within.

When you know your self worth, nurture your self-esteem, recognise your value and honour your potential, anything is possible.

Never Give Up


2.    I smile when I hear of people following their dreams, overcoming their fears and finding their purpose; that thing that really lights them up and that they become known for.


3.    I make a difference by living a healthy, vibrant, and mindful life and inspiring others to do the same. I am still, so often surprised by just how many and frequently others say I inspire them. Whether it’s by sharing a healthy recipe that ignites their determination to take better care of themselves; or my personal and intuitive posts that resonate with them to create a shift in mindset that provides clarity, perspective and empowerment; or my travel and lifestyle posts that spark aspirational thoughts, dreams and determination. I want to be an example; I want those who feel inspired by me to say, “If she can, I can.” Because that is how I feel when I look at others who inspire me.



4.    I’m addicted to Crossfit and podcasts. I love how fit, strong and healthy I feel doing Crossfit and the community is amazingly supporting and friendly! My favourite podcasts are Lewis Howes’ The School of Greatness and Cassandra Bodzak’s The Light Maker – they inspire, uplift and motivate me.


5.    Favourite thing to create is new recipes for my blog! I also love journaling. I create a lot of mindset blog posts based on the intuitive thoughts that I process through journaling.



6. If money was no object I’d have a house in every country. I’d travel the world frequently because you can learn so much from other people, cultures, and places. It opens your eyes, leaves you with a sense of awe, makes you more appreciative, fosters a great sense of mindfulness, and helps you discover yourself.


7.    My tip to creating a healthy home is to do a pantry cleanse. Your health is the single greatest starting point toward creating positive change in any area of your life. What you feed your body is either the single greatest poison or medicine. So to create a healthy home I would recommend removing everything from your pantry that has a label and only stock it with up the pantry with only real, whole foods. If “un-real” food is not there, you won’t eat it.

8.    You can help the earth by making this simple change… minimising food waste. You can do this in a couple of ways:

  • Meal planning – once a week, sit down and write out what your breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks will be. This will help to minimise waste because you’ll be thinking about what you need to buy at the grocery store, how you can get the most out of everything you buy, and how to use leftovers so they don’t end up in the bin.

  • Composting – did you know that about 50% of what’s in your garbage is classified as food waste? That could easily be diverted from landfill through composting or worm farming.

9.    Words of wisdom… “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


10.    Everyone should experience the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. It is so very possible! Just make the decision to follow your heart and the universe will get out of your way.
