• 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,…

  • 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.

When we believe in ourselves, others will too! Your possibilities are endless, but only if you take action to accomplish them. And trust me, I KNOW YOU CAN! To be honest, telling you that I talk to…

  • 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…
