How to stay pumped all through your work day: Woohoo, rocked the morning! The mid-day mark has arrived, the work day is half over…this is usually where I start wearing down…don’t rush through lunch to barely slide through the afternoon.

I believe in surrounding myself with inspiration and motivation that fuels me throughout my day. I build my bedroom with the same idea. Every task I complete I want to inspire me…including making my bed… I am given a gift every morning that I awake. I am given the ability to go make my day any way I want it to be, the opportunity to make it an amazing day. I will admit some mornings are tough, sometimes the bed is too warm and the day is too cold, or I’m too tired and I know a long day awaits…

My ex says to me, “You just want to go and be seen all the time.” His comment really irked me. It made me feel as if he was implying I was a show-off which doesn’t really fit my personality or my values and it bugged me. The comment stuck with me, it kept nagging at me and I kept analyzing it over and over. Driving home from the grocery store, laying down to sleep at night – I’d think of it. Such a simple comment that had become ever-so annoying to me, sticking in my mind. Last night it…

One of the things I love so much about blogging is the opportunity to meet so many like and loving souls. I met Shan – I felt an instant connection to just in the little bit of time we’ve chatted. I feel like we are kin spirits, aligned in our journeys, with paralleled thoughts. She gave me the wonderful freedom of reviewing her 2017 Magical Manifesting Diary. It really is a magic-making book!  I absolutely love the theme of this diary, adventure. That is my own theme of life as well, spread love and adventure all throughout your life.               …

Staying motivated during the holiday season can be tough, especially if we have some extra days off. I find myself wanting to loaf around in my pj’s and fuzzy socks, staying curled up with a cup of hot chocolate and watching Christmas movies all day long…but is that in our best interest? Life gets hectic during this time of year, our to-do lists get longer and we can fall behind…making us tired and somewhat lazy. While I am a big advocate of taking some time to rest and to recoup, do you want to spend all your vacation days doing…

Wash your face. Remove all the make-up and oils from your face and hydrate your skin with a lightweight moisturizer. Drink a glass of water. Drinking a glass of water before bed helps cycle toxins out of your body. No electronics half an hour before bed. Turn off the tv, put down your phone. Create quite time, take away the extra stimulation to your brain. Light an incense or candle. Calming scents can help us relax. Pick a cozy scent such as Tranquility or Lavender. Write down your to-do list for tomorrow. Get it off your mind so that when…

The start of the day is the moment when we stage how our day is going to roll out. We can decide in those moments if we are going to make it a good day. Set yourself up for success by practicing self-care rituals to strengthen yourself for anything the day may bring. Before you get out of bed, take three deep breaths. Clear your mind of any lingering thoughts before getting up. My rule is that I do not get up until I have breathed and let go and cleared my mind. I tell myself that I refuse to…

 I take pride in being the happy and always optimistic one in the bunch. So much pride that I find myself not allowing myself to feel hurt, feel sad, or to feel angry. But being optimistic doesn’t mean we shouldn’t feel other emotions. Being optimistic means seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, it means knowing fully in your heart that it will be okay, no matter what you’re facing. We need to feel all of our emotions. We need to allow them to process, to run their course, and to pass through us. Each emotion has its…
