This girl had no idea what the “idea” she was toying with at that time could turn out to be.
Being whisked away to South Beach, staying in fancy hotels, having people wait on us at the beach, buying custom made hand-beaded dresses for fancy events, sitting poolside at one of the most expensive properties in Miami, eating amazing food every second possible.
I remember feeling like it was all surreal. Awesome, but surreal.
It has nothing to do with the new year, it’s just a time that we all feel better about the blank slate type feel of January SO why not take advantage of that and set ourselves up right with a New Year Mindset!?
Mindset is everything. I know people like to say that but I’ve been living it since before it was a cool statement to make and I am so freaking passionate about helping people see it for themselves.
Along with your perspective, your mindset truly sets you apart from the rest. It also sets the tone for every single thing you do, every word you say, and everything you interpret. You use your mindset all day everyday, like a million times probably.
So whether we like to admit it or not, our mindset can truly set the tone for everything in our world.
A while back I got a suggestion to record something talking about my biggest “ah-ha moment” and as I thought about it, a bunch of things popped into my head. As I was revisiting it one stuck out more than the others.
Honestly, this has been a moment that birthed a thousand more and is something that I will forever be grateful for.
Have you ever had one of those moments where you hear something and then something inside of you just clicks? That’s what this moment was. I was listening to Gary Vee speak at his book launch for the #askgaryvee book and something he said sparked a curiosity in me that’s been very much alive ever since. Continue reading “Greatest Gift”→
No, I’m just kidding… Well, maybe sometimes I do but that’s not my point. While I was creating my latest podcast episode I just kept saying that in my head the entire time, haha. Insert your favorite Mean Girls quote here!Continue reading “Wednesdays”→
“A woman who continues to shatter the stigma of something that tries it’s damnedest to hold you back but will never succeed.”
I ran across these words today. Words that a precious client and fellow boss lady who has a chronic illness said about me during an interview I did for her podcast a couple of years ago. Continue reading “Shatter The Stigma”→
Sometimes even when the reality isn’t really all that rosy we continue, out of pure subconscious comfortability to only see things through our trusty rose-colored glasses.
The truth is, most of us were given those glasses at a really young age and they’ve become something we’ve carried in our pockets ever since. We put them on every time our experience was the only one that was comfortable to see and over the years they’ve become something that we depend on, unbeknownst to us.
As I sit down to do my planning this week, I’m doing things a little differently and so should you.
Every Sunday for, well like 10+ years I have sat down to plan out my week. At one point it was a necessity because I had like 5 jobs to keep track of, now it’s a non-negotiable because I prioritize balance above all else.
You see, I make sure there is space for clients, for work, for writing, for moving my body, for preparing my meals, for spending time with my loved ones, for learning, for being outside, for working through my apprenticeship, and this week I’m adding in specific hours to educate myself deeper on the systemic racism in this country.Continue reading “Educating Myself”→
A couple of years ago someone asked me what brought me joy and honestly, I froze. I didn’t know what to say. I wasn’t sure how to answer that question at all. I mean, my business brought me joy, my clients made me happy, my successes we’re great but actual JOY? I was fresh out of ideas. So, I started down this path of seeking job in all of the little moments that occur. Mix that with gratitude and it’s proving to be a very rewarding experience to create. So I ask you, how much are you leaving on the table without joy? The truth is, probably a LOT. Continue reading “Finding the Joy”→
