• Energy is Contagious

    My dad has always told us that we become like the people we spend the most time with, so choose carefully! If you’re constantly hanging around and learning from 4 highly successful businessmen, odds are you’ll become the 5th! Likewise, if you regularly hang around unhappy and nonmotivated individuals, you guessed it…you’ll be the next! Energies are very contagious and I believe that the environment we put ourselves in will heavily impact our thoughts and actions. Sometimes it’s difficult because we like to see the potential in others who may not see things the way we do. BUT, like mentioned in 1st Corinthians 15:33 “Evil company corrupts good habits.” You…

  • Discipline Your Disappointments

    I’m sure you can relate to the well-known feeling of disappointment, lack of motivation, and fleeting inspiration… Not great is it? That’s why learning to control the way we react is so important! I had a zoom call this week with my MONAT girls, and we were discussing the topic of discipline–especially when we’re discouraged. Truth is, you won’t be on top of your game every single day. There will always be struggles and failures but that’s what makes us better! We ultimately learn and grow when we try new things.  It’s okay to be let down at times, but don’t let yourself get stuck in those feelings of defeat.…

  • 2020 Taught Me… (part 2)

    Last week we dove into the takeaways that 2020 gave us, and this week we will add a few more to the list! Despite the historical events that took place, I feel like a lot of good came out as well. We struggled and suffered along the way, but when we shift our mindset to recognize the positives, it shows exactly what lessons we were so lucky to learn through it all!  Here I present to you, 10 (more) things that 2020 taught us… You aren’t defined by your day job/career! Being unemployed or having to take time off can be difficult. It can make you feel lost or lacking…

  • 2020 Taught Me… (part 1)

    I recently reached out to you, my trustworthy friends, on social media and asked what lessons you learned from the monumental 366 days that was 2-0-2-0… Your replies blew me away; reminding me exactly why I LOVE what I do! This blog is such a fun way to bring people together and get insights from all walks of life. It inspires me and motivates me to write each and every week. For that, I say thank you! And without further ado, let’s jump into part one of the things that 2020 taught us. Self-Love is especially important in unprecidented times like these. When we’re stuck at home with only ourselves,…

  • Body Image & Self-Love (part 3)

    This is for all the people out there that are learning to love themselves in a world that’s constantly telling them not to… Last week we talked about self-care, this week is about self-love! I always try to choose my blog topics based on relevance in my life at the time–which is exactly what led me to this. As you probably know, a few months ago I moved from Missouri to Arizona! And while the midwest is currently being slammed with ice and snow storms, I’ve been wearing summer attire all week. #blessed On that note, the other day I went to get dressed and couldn’t pull my denim shorts…

  • Prioritizing ME

    We’re gonna start off today with a little exercise! (not the burpee kind, don’t worry) I want you to make a mental list… Note 5 things that you LOVE most in this world–GO! Can be anything or anyone you want. Now, tell me if YOU are on that list? Amongst the “sunny weather, coffee with friends, favorite movie” was there room for little ole you anywhere? If not, go back. Reassess the list and prioritize yourself please! People learn by example; so if you’re not showing them how to best love and care for you, how will they achieve such a task?  Self-care is such a hot topic these days,…

  • Stop F*cking Settling

    Hi, I’m Taylor, and I like the word fuck. Blame my dad, he was in the Navy and I can confirm the saying “curse like a sailor” is true! I really debated on using such a harsh word in the title of this post, but that’s who I am, so why not? Staying true to this topic, it just felt right to speak my mind and be bold. Rest assured, while my mouth may not always be the softest, my heart is in the right place. So buckle up and let’s dive into the act of NOT F*CKING SETTLING! To put it lightly, settling will always leave the heart unsettled.…

  • 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…
