You’re doing great, girl!

As we head into this week I want you to stop, look yourself in the mirror and repeat after me “you’re doing great, girl!” Because sometimes we just need to hear it.

I’ve been inside my head a lot lately. Doubts are clouding my thoughts and really raining on my spirit. Perhaps it’s the cold front or hormones or maybe it’s just being human.

Not even discussing what I’m processing internally, a gentle reminder from one of my closest girls pops up on my phone. “You’re doing great!” read the text she sent me. She had no idea how much I needed to read those words in that moment. How much I needed encouragement this week.

We all have doubts that creep into our mind late at night. Second guessing how we handled a situation, how we are doing as a parent, how we are performing in our careers, etc. It’s natural. But sometimes those doubts can be overwhelming. And when that happens, more than ever do you need to shake it off and remind yourself of your goodness. Don’t let doubt outshine your light.

So maybe, ya’ll need to hear this too this week like I did:

Stay Determined

Life is better when you are laughing

A quick reminder that life is better when you are laughing! As we start this week that officially kicks off Hallowthanksmass season, I want to remind you to laugh as often as possible.

Just for fun I added to the mix of crazy to have a booth for the  school’s holiday bazaar. It […]

Note to Self

A little note to self for this Mantra Monday! In a world where we want to make others proud sometimes we need to step back and realize it is okay to be proud of ourselves too! Stop and think, what accomplishment would make you proud? Maybe it is a big goal- like paying off a debt or getting a promotion.  Maybe just a small goal- like hitting the gym every day this week or making that recipe recently pinned. Maybe it is just as simple as getting through your to-do list. What is one goal you can accomplish this week? […]

Your Super Power

No one is you and that’s your super power, babe! Take a moment to think about your best friend, what one of her best qualities? Now think about yourself, what is one of yours? I bet you thought of two completely different answers. In a recent conversation with a friend we found ourselves talking about accepting who we are and others for who they are.  We found ourselves discussing  how it was not until we reached our adult years that we learned how to accept and embrace our uniqueness and those of others. And more importantly how beautiful that makes […]

Kind Thoughts. Kind Words. Kind Heart

Kind Thoughts. Kind Words. Kind Heart. Three short sentences that can make a big impact on our daily lives. I did not mention it here yet, and I think only briefly over on Insta but I have some major news to share: I am leading a yoga class at the Fairborn YMCA twice a week! I teach a 50 minute yoga toning class. It is a vinyasa style flow with small body weight repetitions sprinkled throughout. I started at the beginning of September and I am having a blast! The room has soft lightning, I play some light beats and […]

Do what makes your soul happy

Do what makes your soul happy and see how life falls into place. It’s been crickets around here, sorry about that. When I first dove into the idea of having a fashion and fitness blog. I read other bloggers apologizing for taking an unannounced absence I would think “what, how could that do that? That will never be me.” Just like my Mommy used to tell me “never say never” because I’m guilty as charge for leaving this place without new content for months. I’ve missed this place- I miss writing and creating. I however do not miss the anxiety […]
