Open to Receiving

Open to Receiving

When you’ve been silently winning battles and totally transforming yourself knowing in your bones that everything is playing out the way it’s supposed to… even in those moments where all you want to do is to have it RIGHT NOW and it’s really hard you can still see so clearly that this is just another piece of what has to transpire in order for you to actually get that thing you want so badly in the first place… you keep the faith. You stay vibing as high as possible. You keep believing that the universe has your back and that things always happen in divine timing.

And then one day you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of what you wanted so badly and you’ll almost be scared to even allow yourself to feel giddy for fear that it might not last or might not be real. Continue reading “Open to Receiving”

The Method To My Madness

The Method To My Madness

*Originally posted October 13th, 2019

When it’s your lifestyle, it never “turns off”. It simply is your way of being.

You can be present and still have the habit of stopping what you’re doing to write a post when something pops into your mind.

You can still relax and remember to take a photo that you intend on posting for your brand.

It’s not made up. It’s not like you’re pretending, not even a little bit, actually. It just becomes a part of the way you live your life. So much so that you don’t even have to think about it. It just becomes a natural thing you do.

It’s something you have to make space for at first. As you’re learning to balance things a little differently than you’ve ever known before in order to make this freedom based lifestyle your reality, you have to start making space to pay attention. Space to notice the little things. Space to be present. Space to hear the messages you’re meant to hear and in turn share what you’re meant to share. Continue reading “The Method To My Madness”

Choose Joy

Choose Joy

Ya know what’s fun?

Being happy.
Choosing joy.
Even when darkness creeps in, choosing not to let it stay. Honoring it, looking at it, but letting it go and doing whatever it takes to choose happy again.

Happiness truly is a choice. One you get to make every morning and then a thousand more times all day, every day. Continue reading “Choose Joy”

Lean In

Lean In

Don’t understand something? Lean in.
Disapprove of someone’s position? Lean in.
Feel defensive? Lean in.
Don’t agree with someone? Lean in.

We have got to quit creating wide opinions on things we’ve not even taking the time to become educated on simply because it’s being delivered by an individual or group that you “disagree” with.

Lean in.
Ask questions.
Do your research. Continue reading “Lean In”

Physical Space

Physical Space

Feeling scrambled? Maybe flustered even?
Down about yourself? Or a little like you’re lost?

Look around you, at your physical space…
Your bedroom
The kitchen
Your office space
Dining room
Living room

How does it look?
More importantly, how does it FEEL?

If it’s cluttered, stuff stacked everywhere, dust piled up, nothing in the room that makes you smile or feel joy… then I suggest you start there. Continue reading “Physical Space”

Life Has Been Really Loud Lately

Life Has Been Really Loud Lately

The heat kicks on in this house and it’s like you turned on a white noise machine. Chandler hates it because it means he has to turn up the TV to hear his shows, but I actually find it super comforting, especially in the morning before anyone else is awake. It’s like a barrier of sound that muffles everything just a little bit, just enough for me to refocus my thoughts when life gets a little too loud.

And guys, let me tell you life has been really damn loud lately. A lot has been happening that I couldn’t have planned for if I was Merlin himself but as I sit here this morning reflecting back on how life has been transpiring lately and looking to what this week has in store, I can honestly say that through it all, I’ve stayed surprisingly calm.

Morning Routine

Morning Routine

So, it’s been proven that the way you spend the first hour of your day sets the stage for the way your entire day is going to play out. And you know that I wholeheartedly believe in that statement.

I take my morning routine very seriously. But here’s the thing… it was really easy to stick to my morning routine when it was just me and two dogs in the house. The worst that happened was I was interrupted by a whine or a nudging wet nose who wanted a pet or a snuggle. Fast forward to my current life and well, the morning routine thing is hell of a lot different than it used to be. Continue reading “Morning Routine”
