Sometimes it does just look like a conversation. Like talking through a plan or identifying a block, going through how to handle something or what pieces of the business need tightened up, parts of life need more attention, how to be present, meditate, or be a better spouse, or parent, or friend.
But sometimes it looks like scheduling a separate call so I can teach you how to create your own website, video, or graphics.
Sometimes it’s talking through what to do when your relationship just exploded in your face and you feel like you’re drowning. Continue reading “The Person In Your Corner”
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.
Do your research. Continue reading “Lean In”
“Forget her looks. How about her insane work ethic? Her unstoppable ambition? And her ridiculously dope soul?” Ladies, having a pretty face is just a bonus. Having a body that you feel good about helps and being healthy should be a priority.
But having an honest heart? An open mind? A passionate essence? And a beautifully deep soul?
Those are the things you should be most focused on. They’re a bigger part of the foundation than anything else can you could possibly build.
Want to attract the right people? The ones your soul chooses for you? Start you journey inward. Get quiet and listen to yourself everyday. Start there.
Because what better compliment is there than to be loved for your brain? Or your drive? Or how bright your soul shines?
The other day I was sitting in the salon chair recapping some current events from my world with my friend and hair stylist when I realized that I had just referenced my therapist and my psychiatrist within a few short breaths of each other. When realizing that, I stopped and jokingly said “Damn, don’t I sound like a mess? It takes a team to keep my head right!” To which she replied “Nope! Sounds smart to me. It’s your job to keep a whole list full of people’s heads and business’s right, only makes sense that you have your own team for yours.”
That comment has been ringing in my head ever since. First off, she was right. And she knows me pretty damn well. We’ve been friends since high school but over the past 4 years she’s been the brains behind this mermaid hair which means she gets the joy of spending 4+ hours with me every few months to install a new set of extensions… so it’s safe to say, she knows all of the things. I’m not sure I’ve ever met someone more understanding or less judgmental in my life and I’m super grateful for that relationship.
Back to my point, I have assembled quite the team of professionals to keep me sane and functioning at a high capacity. Sure, I’m the one spending the money, dedicating the time, and doing the work, but they are there to help me navigate everything in the healthiest way possible. Continue reading “Support System”
Before you turn to someone else to ask about a person, think to yourself… have you actually reached out to that individual themselves to ask what you’re wondering about them? Have you asked them for an answer to your question? Have you checked in with them or tried to make plans with them?
Why do people always so quickly assume someone else knows better?
Silence goes both ways. So does contact. Think about that before you assume someone is ignoring you or doesn’t want to be involved in your life anymore. Continue reading “Asking About Someone”
Feeling scrambled? Maybe flustered even?
Down about yourself? Or a little like you’re lost?
Look around you, at your physical space…
Your office space
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”
