Let it be what it is…you will find peace there.

“A secret to happiness is letting every situation be what it is, instead of what you think it should be.” 

This is one of the many quotes that hang on my wall.

A secret to life is to believe that every thing has a purpose.

Good times bring us joy and bring us up, rough times give us lessons that make us stronger.

I believe we all are made for a higher purpose of some kind.

Our experiences in our lives will help us become what and who we are meant to be if you are open to the lessons and the growth that they bring with them.

Believe that though you may not be in control of what is occurring around you, that you can control your self, and believe that what is is supposed to be.

Have patience in your journey and in your growth. With every experience we become stronger and closer to our destiny.

Some of my current (healthy) obsessions:

Notebooks – I always have a few on hand. This is the place my mind wanders, my to-do lists go, my ideas and plans start.


Coconut Oil – This stuff is amazing on so many levels…I know there’s a lot of hype in the world about coconut oil but I’m telling you from my experience this stuff is great. I started using it last summer when I ended up with a pretty rough sunburn and continued to use it throughout the year as a lotion and as an eye-makeup remover.

White Hot Truth by Danielle Laporte – My current read is quickly making it to my favorites list. I love Danielle’s straight-forward, real life talk.

Leggings – I make leggings work all year long, snuggle up in the them with a cozy sweater and boots for the winter or go laid back with some flip flops and tanks. I’m pretty sure I’ve collected a pair of leggings for any occasion at this point!

Organic Jamaican Castor Oil – I’ve just started using this in my hair and the results have been amazing. Leaves my hair silky smooth and stronger.
