Get Back Up and Try Again

        Have you ever been a place where you were working so hard you just didn't know if you could continue? Yeah, that was me. I've worked more than two jobs, sometimes up to five at a time, for years and years. I don't tell you this because it's impressive, I tell you because I did what I had to do. You see, life just isn't easy all the time. And sometimes I think I might have made it a little harder on myself. I didn't finish my degree in college which means I had to work a LOT harder in my 20's to not only figure out what I wanted to do with my life, but...

Please Cancel my Subscription to your Issues

      I saw this quote the other day and it made me laugh...but then it got me thinking. How often do we subscribe to other peoples problems? We allow others to soak up our days, complaining about their lives and issues. I get that it's easy to subscribe to things. We subscribe to newsletters in our emails, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, but what about those subscriptions that we'd rather cancel? We can easily make the choice to cancel Netflix to save money, so why can't we cancel subscriptions to the things that leave us feeling empty? I know it's hard to pick friends who only lift you up. I find myself making excuses for people like "Well, she's...

Don't Rush the Time

  "We waste our whole life preparing for the future, not realizing that the only way to be happy is to embrace each moment."   It's that time of year again. Teachers and kids are going back to school, the days are getting shorter, people are back to their school year routines. And of course, people are rushing the season, once again. Can I share something with you guys? It drives me nuts when people try to rush the season. I remember my mom making comments about people wearing sweaters in the summertime when I was a kid. Maybe being annoyed about the rushing of the seasons is something I get from her. Don't get me wrong, Fall is amazing....

This body is worthy of love

  "Imagine if we obsessed about the things we loved about ourselves"   Let me start this out by saying that I used to be addicted to fitness. And I literally mean addicted. I spent over 2 hours in the gym every single day. Not only is this unhealthy, it's just unnecessary. If I've learned anything (to do with fitness/health) in the last five years, it's that balance is a beautiful thing. Something is always better than nothing. Life can get extremely busy, and for those of us who care about how our bodies look, it only makes things harder the busier you are. It's no secret that my sister and I used to have eating disorders. Luckily we both...

How to Create a Life you Love

  It's officially August and I'm sitting here wondering how the HECK we got so far into this year so dang fast! I was thinking six months in had to be some sort of joke but now here we are with only five months left in 2018. It's crazy how fast time flies. But to be honest I'm ready for Fall/ Christmas, haha. Aka my two favorite times of year.  When was the last time you sat down and evaluated your life? I personally do it quite often. What do you want out of life? Who do you look up to? Where do you want to be when you're creating content and working? What kind of office do you dream...
