• Quality Over Quantity

    Quality over quantity is my rule of thumb when it comes to most aspects of life; but more importantly, with FRIENDS! Is your circle well rounded? Motivating? Inspiring & supportive? If you answered no to any of those, you may be entitled to friendship compensation… I know it sounds obvious, but having supportive people in your corner will make all the difference! Start paying close attention to how they react to your accomplishments & successes… Are they encouraging and proud of you!? Or snide and critical!? Don’t feel bad about being picky with who you let in, and always protect your heart. Start consciously surrounding yourself with ones that truly…

  • 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!

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!…

  • Body Image & Self-Love (part 2)

    “Another person’s beauty is not the absence of our own.” I felt like this was a good quote to start with because today, that’s what we’re focusing on. Comparison is a nasty game to get into…no one plays fair, there’s lies, flags and fouls on the field…and the ref has to blow their whistle a few too many times. Now, I’m no sports fan, but I can promise you–that’s NOT something I want to get roped into! When we choose to compare, the one that takes the fall becomes ourselves. Teaching our minds that we are not good enough, and that someone else is “better.” Let’s face it; LIFE IS…
