• Dear Future, I’m Ready

    “Your future needs you, your past doesn’t.” I wasn’t sure what to write this week’s post about, so I went to my trusty Pinterest search and looked up some inspiration. I scrolled and scrolled, closed my eyes, chose a quote and that was that! I honestly love this topic because it’s so simple yet so difficult for us to do. Back in 2019 I wrote about inhaling the future and exhaling the past, so I’ll touch on that a bit here too. Feel free to read it once you’re finished with this one–they’ll tie in quite nicely! Every single day we get a brand new opportunity to be different; to…

  • Change Starts Within

    “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” They say the secret to your success is found in your daily routine. Making small changes will result in big differences! You just have to decide that you’re tired of the old and ready for the new. Much like the resolutions we discussed last week, making actual change in yourself and your life won’t be EASY. It’ll take effort, dedication, and strength! But you have to realize that you deserve the positive outcome ahead; and remember, not all positive change will feel positive in the beginning. Usually the first step is…

  • 2021 Word of the Year

    Where do I begin with 2020… Who am I kidding!? NOBODY wants to relive that shitshow. We are going to skip right over the chaos and leave that one to the history books. Today is all about NEW BEGINNINGS, FRESH STARTS and CLEAN SLATES! Something I think everyone could use more of right now, am I right? I won’t keep you waiting any longer, let’s welcome 2021 with open arms and hopeful hearts! I’m sure most of us are familiar with the annual tradition of setting goals and assigning resolutions. It’s a fun way to hold ourselves accountable for the next 365 days and feel motivated to conquer our weak…

  • Write Your Own Story

    I MADE IT TO ARIZONA…the land of sunshine, blue skies, good vibes, and no daylight savings time! YES PLEASE! My new home on the west coast is absolutely everything I could’ve imagined it to be and more. My heart has truly never felt so happy! (probably because there’s literally a palm tree in my backyard now) In my 22 years of life, I’ve been around a place or two. Born on a naval air station in California, grew up in a smalltown in Missouri, experienced a year of city life in North Carolina…and now here I am. AZ. Finally! It truly feels like HOME. Ever since 2017, when Mitchell and…

  • The Power of Manifestation

    “In order to manifest it, you must believe in it’s inevitability.” The act of manifestation is very similar to those affirmations we talk about all the time. The “Law of Attraction” if you will. It’s the action of putting what you desire into the universe, channeling the energy to make it a reality! I truly believe that your thoughts are SO SO powerful…they control your mind, in turn controlling your life as well. Might as well make it good, right? Visualize your highest self and start showing up as her! Know what you want out of this life, and don’t stop until you get there! Whether that be in your…

  • Yesterday You Said Tomorrow

    Nike really hit the nail on the head with this one. One of my favorite videos on the internet is Shia LaBeouf screaming JUST DO ITTTT!!! If you have no clue what I’m talking about, go Google it, and come back… It’s dramatic and full of lots of shouting, but you have to admit it’s pretty motivational! He’s right isn’t he? Yesterday, you said you’d do it tomorrow…and that day is here now. Ready to be conquered! I want to share a personal story with you real quick, because sometimes it helps to have something to relate to. There has been this opportunity at my fingertips for a couple months…

  • NEW WEEK = FRESH START

    Are you one of those “Ugh…it’s Monday…” or “Yay! Monday = fresh start!” kinda people? Don’t panic, there’s no wrong answer! It’s so funny how differently we can view even the simplest of things. While it may be hard to hear that alarm, pull those covers off, and get out of that cozy warm bed (that somehow feels like the clouds of heaven all of a sudden)–Mondays are so refreshing to me! Something about that new week, new plans, new day feeling that just gets me going! With that being said, I promise I am not dancing around my bedroom, singing princess songs while woodland creatures brush my hair… Happy…

  • Same Storm, Different Boat

    I heard a quote the other day that really stood out to me. It said: “WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME STORM, BUT NOT IN THE SAME BOAT.” Damn isn’t that true!? Especially in the midst of the chaos these days. The rain is relentlessly pouring down on us all, yet we have no idea the severity for each individual. Someone may have had years of practice, others may have a hole in the bottom of their boat…a broken sail…! Who knows? In my opinion, it is not right for a man on a big fancy cruise ship to criticize the man on a paddle boat. They are not even…

  • Let’s Stay Connected

    I’m scared, y’all… I’ll be honest, the thought of losing you freaks me out! Let me explain: Last week, Instagram had a bit of a hiccup in it’s system. I’m not totally sure why or what happened, but I noticed lots of accounts being affected. We were randomly losing highlights on our profile, and stories were being deleted! It was driving me crazy and just sort of an annoying “first world” problem. Then I realized…my eggs are ALL in one basket! If (god forbid) Instagram/Facebook were to shut down tomorrow, I’d lose YOU! How would I be able to talk to my friends anymore?? How would I keep those relationships…

  • We’re All In This Together

    I’m not the first to say it, and I know I won’t be the last…but this month has been WILD! I’ve been in a brain fog and at an utter loss for words for the last week now. Trying desperately to understand it all and find some sort of normalcy amongst the chaos and uncertainty. Life as we knew it seems to be a faint memory now, and it feels like we’re living in a false reality or something. I love the airport analogy that I keep seeing on social media about how nothing makes sense…time doesn’t exist…there are no rules… It’s just blowing my mind how fast things escalated!…
