Do you have an awesome mindset? It’s essential to cultivate positivity in your life, starting with yourself. The awesome mindset IS NOT about being overly confident or selfish. IT IS about building confidence to PRAISE yourself during your thriving moments, and to power to believe in yourself during those unsure life moments. This mindset is about validating your own feelings and thoughts without ever feeling bad about it. When making those priority lists in life, you probably don’t even put yourself on the list at all. But without making yourself a priority, you can ‘t be a reliable partner, parent,… View Post

Excuse me as I take a moment for a personal message.  I’ve been thinking about what my message should be to the world.  I asked people what they thought the message I was conveying through Instagram.  I don’t know why this has become so important to me, but I’ve been a little more conscious about what I’m putting out there.  I’ve been struggling to find my voice or even hone in on my message.

I know it’s been a while since I posted on the blog.  I once read somewhere that you should focus on one goal at a time and my one goal for half this year was running a marathon.  Now I’m ready to move on to my next goal which is getting my blog back in order.

Excitement was in the air.  I shed tears on Monday because when I went to sign up for the race the 20K was sold out and I had to “settle” for the 10k.  Ten minutes before the race started, I was able to upgrade my race to the 20K. Ironically, I quit the race at the 10K mark and I just walked away.… View Post

Happy Tuesday!  You are perfect the way you are. I don’t know about you, but I unintentionally on the “sly” say negative things about myself.  I find myself saying, “she had a baby around the same time as me and she’s doing this.” There’s so much focus on one moment in time and not enough focus on the bigger picture.  To make a whole, you must have the parts even the parts that aren’t so pretty. We live in a different world of perfectly curated pictures and other social media posts that make it seem like other people have their… View Post
