We’ve all been there. You have something that needs to get done and you just don’t feel motivated. You think to yourself, “It’ll come to me, right?” And then it doesn’t. Recently, I have become self-employed, and to be honest, it’s harder than I ever expected it would be. As I’ve discovered ways to daily pursue my goals and overcome the challenges of working for myself, I have had to quickly learn how to tackle that feeling of not feeling motivated. Trust me, it happens more often than I’d like to admit. With the creative business that I am in of fashion blogging, creativity does not simply “come to me,” especially when I’m not feeling in the mood to write or create. However, I can’t let that hold me back. As I have learned to navigate the paths within this new business venture, I find more ways every day to stay motivated. Today, I share these tips with you. After all, we all need a little extra motivation sometimes! CONTINUE READING
As we approach a season of giving, I can’t help but notice the power behind this positive way of living. It provokes the question, “What if we treated each other with the same generosity and kindness all year long?” I’ll admit that many who give monetarily may not be able to afford this way of giving all the time. But consider this more of a continuous attitude and possibly a new way of living. It is my goal this year to go above and beyond for others and show much more gratitude and kindness every day. I hope you’ll join me! The world needs so much of it and it all can start with you.
It’s Cyber Monday – one of the most sought after online shopping days for deals and steals. I am a huge online shopper and generally, my Cyber Mondays are filled with browsing websites and finding the best sales. However, like any sale seeker, there is the tendency to not only get swarmed by the vast amount of deals but also forget the priorities of shopping. To ensure you get the best bang for your buck, I’m giving you five tips to save you the most money during holiday sales and a round up of my favorite Cyber Monday sales while they last!
As I reflect on this past year, my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. To be honest, this has been the hardest year of my life with so many changes happening at once. Anxiety, depression, health issues, divorce, new job, new income, and a new housing situation have all come together in one whirlwind and brought my year with many struggles that I don’t think anyone should endure at once. That alone is overwhelming, but instead of living with regret or self-pity, I choose joy. The very act of being thankful regardless of the circumstances can easily rid your life with of negativity that attempts to bring you down. We have so much to be thankful for, my friends.
Today I challenge you, to take your gratitude beyond Thanksgiving and the holiday season and begin being more intentional about giving thanks all year. I’ve gathered some of my favorite ways to practice gratitude, but I’d love for you to contribute and share your ideas as well!CONTINUE READING
