In the last few weeks since I last wrote, so much in my life has shifted. One of the biggest changes is I have a new job! I was approached within my current company & presented with a new role: new title, team, responsibilities & a raise! Now, not everything is sunshine & rainbows. If … Continue reading MINDSET: GROWTH OR FIXED?
About a month ago, I had to be very honest with myself. I was not feeling like myself, I was constantly unmotivated at work. I ignored it at first, but then decided to actually sit down & take note of what my body/mind was trying to tell me. I said to myself - “Set your ego … Continue reading TO SET LIMITS OR RISK A BURNOUT?
One of the most difficult things about change is that we must let go of who we currently are – whether it be a habit, routine, mood, or viewpoint. Momentarily, we feel lost as we establish a new way of doing things. These past two weeks I’ve really been trying rise above the stuff that’s … Continue reading GETTING UN-STUCK MAY REQUIRE CHANGE
I am a lady who thoroughly enjoys a drink from time to time. As I've gotten older, the guidelines around drinking have shifted. Throughout college & my early-twenties, social plans revolved around drinking. I was on auto-pilot; unaware of my consumption frequency. I never abused alcohol, but I was never conscious about it either. Isn't it … Continue reading ALCOHOL & MINDFUL DRINKING
I had a realization this past weekend. I build a wall as a means of self-protection. I tend to lead from a place of defense, independence, and determination. I'm prepared to protect myself at all times and I hold a very high standard/expectation that I can do everything for myself. While I admire this quality … Continue reading Self-Protection, Balancing Independence & Letting him be the Man
If there's one thing I've realized over the past few months it's to appreciate small things. There's a popular misconception that for something to be worthy, meaningful, successful or important, it has to be BIG, noticeable, monumental, etc. And while drastic changes are great, I’ve found that the best changes are the smallest. In my … Continue reading Fully Embracing the Power of Small
Confession ... I'm in a funk. Mentally I am just not where I want to be and I can't seem to shake it. The past few days I've been dragging my feet, overwhelmed with waves of exhaustion, and drained of energy. I can usually pinpoint the trigger: work stress, low self-esteem, boy troubles, exhaustion, but … Continue reading Vent Sesh: In a Funk, Predicting Self-Sabotage & Showing Up
In 47 days I hit an exciting milestone, I turn 25 years old! As my dad would say, it's the year that marks the end of my adolescence since my prefrontal cortex is fully developed. As insignificant as that may seem, it's a little frightening. It's means change, making important decisions, and ranking what (and who) … Continue reading Getting Older & Embracing Change
Not gonna lie, for a while I though the whole idea of positive affirmations and manifestation was total bologna. Repeating a statement can't drastically change my life or guide me to some magical fairy place. On the other hand, I got to a point where I wanted something to look towards for guidance. I am not … Continue reading Thoughts on Affirmations & Manifestation
Recently, I felt the need to rewatch Iris Apfel's documentary on Netflix. If you don't know who Iris is, you are missing out! She is a fashion icon powerhouse who has a passion for timeless design and individual style. She preaches that you need to own your style, dress to please yourself and get risky! … Continue reading Breaking the Style Rules & Self-Exploration
