    Just Believe

    You only need to believe and have a little bit of grace and mercy upon yourself. This post is for me, and any other person struggling to get over themselves and allowing fear to stop them from using their gifts. You know how many times I’ve heard that? I’ve let doubt countlessly hold me back. But sometimes, when you have no other option you are forced to make things work. Figure it out.  The one and only advice my mom has given me over, and over, and over again – because she didn’t have the answers. I’ve got a story to tell but I can’t share all the details. I…

    Something Is Happening Here

    It’s getting easier to share my writings and as comments pour in there is a new found motivation happening. So far the topics that seem to resonate the most are fitness/wellness and health, beauty, faith and spirituality, and a few of the life lessons learned. While this is an assumption, it informs me that the writing needs to be relatable and not always offer a solution-  but perhaps invite someone to share their experience, thoughts and opinions. A common ground really. But something else is happening as well, showing up to my blog allowed me to talk freely (where I felt comfortable in sharing publicly) about myself, my struggles, fears and…

    It's Not Really A Friday If You Have To Work – Right?

    “It’s Not Really A Friday If You Have To Work – Right?” What is the energy you bring to work each day? Work is one of those things many people dread. I’m not even gonna front – I find myself dreading work some days too. However I’ve found that mindset is where is all starts. I am known as the early bird in the office. I really despise being late to anything, and since I often arrive before anyone else, I take it as an opportunity to set the day off. I greet everyone with a cheerful smile, get the coffee pot going and set the temperature to a comfy…

    Why Write?

    It’s funny that I dare write about writing – I’m far from an expert, I know my spelling and grammar isn’t always on par. I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll say it again – I’m currently writing for my self, to document my journey day by day of where I’d like to be. However, today I’d like to encourage you to write.

    Waiting For Inspiration

    Waiting for inspiration is probably one of the worst things you can do. There is no guarantee that inspiration will motivate you to take action on what you’ve been stalling on. I’ll admit, I was stalling on writing today. I completed an entire paragraph only to l feel that my topic wasn’t genuine or interesting. In my opinion it was full of fluff. I was writing just to write. It then made me think – what was it that I was searching for? Why wasn’t I writing? Then the thought crossed my mind, “I don’t feel inspired.” It’s true, I wasn’t feeling inspired. But should we wait to feel inspired…

    A Life Of Waiting

    How many times have you said these things? I can’t wait until I’m an adult!  I can’ wait until I’m older! I can’t wait to get to high school, college, graduate… I can’t wait until I’m 21  I can’t wait to have a boyfriend I can’t wait to get married I can’t wait to have children I can’t wait to get that promotion…..  As you get older the “I can’t wait turns into something else. Other people are waiting to see your life transform. Maybe its so that you can share experiences and stories (that’s the positive spin on it – but not everyone is for you). It doesn’t help…
