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

Happy Monday, all!  It’s a rainy day.  The baby is napping and I’m working from home today.  These are the moments that I love.  It’s supposed to rain all day so I decided the right choice was to hit the treadmill this morning to run.  I’m over making excuses why I can’t run so today is the day I decided to make the choice to run.  Running on the treadmill isn’t my favorite thing but the most important thing is to get those feet moving.

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you are having a fabulous start to the week.  I had a great weekend hanging with friends and running some trails but there is more on that later.  It’s time for a little motivation on Monday about why bad doesn’t always mean bad. The weight loss journey was hard and frustrating but the positive was we were working toward a goal. Even on the worst days, it was just easier to move forward imagining what things would be like in the end. There are times when you find yourself in a place that isn’t the… View Post

Things haven’t been great lately and I got bogged down in some negative energy. And then work happened and it got really busy and I didn’t have enough time to really blog. Today’s message: You’re never fully dressed without a smile. It’s not a completely an original idea. But it’s a theory I want to carry over into this Monday. It’s time to start fresh and to start anew. It’s time to smile, again.  The act of smiling can change your whole world in the blink of an eye. A smile breeds positivity. Why should you turn that frown upside… View Post
