• 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,…

  • 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…

  • 2020 Word of the Year

    Ohhh Myyy Goddd (said like Janice from FRIENDS)…it’s 2020! Not only are we beginning a brand new year, but an entirely new DECADE! Man oh man have times changed since good ole 2010. But that, my friend, is a story for another time. Today, I want to share with you something that’s been on my mind for a couple weeks. Something I always look forward to, and a topic we all seem to be talking about right now! Let’s talk “WORD OF THE YEAR”. Have you ever done a word of the year; where you begin in January, choosing a specific word/phrase to help set your intentions for the new…

  • A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

    We’ve all heard the stories of Cinderella. Just an average girl, that was dealt a rough hand (and no, I don’t mean in poker). Guys, things were hard…she had struggle after struggle, but did she let that stop her!? Absolutely not. She dreamt of making a life for herself, and being exactly who she wanted to be. And let me tell you, home-girl was wise. She knew that it does no good to sit around WISHING, if you’re not actually DOING. Now of course, not all of us are lucky enough to get a sparkly fairy godmother, and a pumpkin-turned carriage…but that shouldn’t deter you from accomplishing whatever it is…

  • Take the Risk or Lose the Chance

    As humans, I feel as though we tend to get caught up in life as we know it. Many of us being too afraid to go out on that limb and to take that chance…even when it is something we want SO bad. The question is, “Are YOU willing to take that risk before it’s out of your grasp??” I know I probably sound like a broken record just going onnnn and onnnn about the same old thing. But this is truly something that holds a special place in my heart. I want to live my whole life, on MY terms–doing what I love–for ME! Is that too much to…
