Seasons are for a Reason

We all go through things in life, and I think if it’s one thing we always notice is nothing lasts forever. The lows we may feel, or a spontaneous high from something exciting; it’s all temporary.

A Season does not last a lifetime

Not trying to be the bearer of bad news here, but it’s the truth. Let’s talk about the bad first. Try and remember a time where you were scared at the outcome of something; or felt like “this is it” life has no meaning and the worst thing was currently happening to you. Now fast forward to present moment, was it really?

Were all of the things you thought of previously the worst things that could happen in you life? Were there no silver linings? Did they last forever? NO!

It’s all temporary. Continue reading “Seasons are for a Reason”

You Need More Than Motivation

Oooo its Wednesday, #HumpDay! Hope all is well and your week has been going smoothly, two more days until the weekend.

I know most of the time in order to get started with a project or plans for a goal we need a little push. Most times that’s readily available, whether it’s a person cheering you on or a podcast you listen to daily; the motivation is there. But what happens when you still don’t feel motivated enough or you’re not on the receiving end of any motivation?

This is the tough part.

Find Happiness in Yourself NOT “STUFF”

Happy Sunday! How have you guys been?

Happiness is something which we all try to achieve for our little own sanity. To be content, carefree, cheerful, merry, joyful all of that;Β It would be awesome if we could be happy 24/7 and not worry about anything but that’s just life.

However, many people feel that once they purchase something tangible or get into a relationship with someone, that they will be fulfilled. WRONG! That’s not how it works, or of course you’d be happy for sometime then you’d want something else again and the process repeats.

Instead of relying on “STUFF” for happiness; whether it be a new car, phone, clothes, jewelry etc etc try looking within. True fulfillment can come in so many other ways, here are a few: Continue reading “Find Happiness in Yourself NOT “STUFF””

2018: Unapologetic + Unstoppable

Hey everyone! Happy Monday and an oh so Happy New Year! We made it! It’s 2018 and I have a mighty good feeling about this one. 2017 wasn’t all that terrible nor was it great; just like any other year it had its ups and downs or more downs than ups. Nonetheless, I remain hopeful to the new year and all the good energy it brings forth.

here's to 2018_

As I read many of my other bloggers last posts of 2017 I gained so much inspiration and words of wisdom which I plan to take into the new year. The word which got to me the most however was, “Resolutions aren’t the problem. Your discipline is.”Mattie James. That in itself struck a nerve, because I’d make all these lists of goals, plan a gazillion things in my head but do I act on them? No…. I’m lazy point-blank period and that has got to change for 2018. Continue reading “2018: Unapologetic + Unstoppable”

Celebrating Success for 2017

As we get ready to enter the new year most of our efforts are on creating new goals and resolutions for 2018, but what about the ones we made for 2017? Matter of fact before we get into that since life doesn’t always go as planned, what about your surprise achievements this year?

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 6.23.24 PM

Did your 2017 live up to the hype?

Did you achieve all that you wanted and more?

Most importantly,Β DID YOU STOP TO CELEBRATE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS?

As humans I find we’re quick to move on to the next thing/goal and not celebrate what we’ve achieved this in that moment. Now, I’m not talking about birthdays, anniversaries, graduations that type of thing where we actually stop and plan a whole celebration. No, I’m talking about the small stuff.

Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY

Are ya’ll tired of hearing me speak about the Year of Yes yet? I hope not!
So, what is BADASSERY and why am I striving for it?

All compliments to Shonda Rhimes, Badassery is:

  1. (noun) the practice of knowing one’s own accomplishments and gifts, accepting one’s own accomplishments and gifts and celebrating one’s own accomplishments and gifts; 2. (noun) the practice of living life with swagger : SWAGGER (noun or verb) a state of being that involves loving oneself, waking up “like this” and not giving a crap what anyone else thinks about you. Term first coined by William Shakespeare.

Now that we got that lovely description out the way, why should we strive for it?

It was at an award ceremony where Shonda realized how other young women including herself did not know how to celebrate their accomplishments while being honored. They did one of three things, hid their faces, laugh it off or try to get the person speaking to stop. Continue reading “Let’s Talk // I Strive for BADASSERY”
