30 Day Self Care Challenge

Self-care can be difficult to get into the habit of doing for ourselves. It is a sad truth. We would rather tackle a laundry list of items for our households, work, and family before we even begin thinking about taking time for ourselves. What is the deal with that? It takes more than one special moment or one day to cultivate the real love within you that you may have been neglecting from yourself. This is why I created this 30-day self-care challenge. If you are like me then perhaps you need to challenge yourself in order…

March Goals

Hello, everyone! I am excited to be writing this post! The last monthly goals post I wrote was in March of 2016. Woah time flies! I wanted to get back into the swing of writing these little monthly goals posts because while I was looking at last years posts I felt rather nostalgic to see the plans and things I was up to back then. These kinds of posts are not only a great way to hold yourself accountable but also fun to look back upon. So seeing how March 1st is the traditional beginning of the new year I…

Hello, beautiful readers! Now that 2017 is here I am left contemplating all that was accomplished in 2016. It was a successful year of personal growth for me, and believe it or not I owe much of that growth to books! Yup, that’s right dear friends, reading has helped transform me mentally, physically and creatively throughout this past year. In 2016 I committed myself to reading 30 books, a hefty goal for me.

7 Tips to Overcome Blogging Writer’s Block

If you are a blogger or writer of any kind then you undoubtedly have had your fair share of frustrating moments in front of your computer or notebook. Moments when your mind forms lifeless and dull ideas, your brain is blank and you just can’t seem to focus on anything but the fuzzy thoughts filling your head. This, my friends, is called writer’s block. It can last for hours, days, weeks, months… forever. When I first started writing on a more full-time basis I thought that writer’s block was something that affected…

3 Benefits of Putting yourself First

Attention people pleasers! This post is for you. There was a time when I would all too often put the needs of others ahead of my own.

What I have learned is that putting yourself first is truly the best thing you can do for not only for yourself but also for the people in your life. Oh and people can take care of themselves, that’s a new thought I am warming up to…

Searching for Happiness – Self Love Books

I have been reading like a madwoman this year. My reading adventures have consisted of biographies, fiction, non-fiction, and self-help. One thing I have discovered on my reading adventures is that there are a lot of really, really bad self-help books out there. Seriously… In fact, it is no wonder why more people don’t read these types of books. Many can be overwhelming and unmotivating, leaving you feeling confused and discouraged. Don’t let those bad books discourage you from gaining the benefits of the good self-help books that are out there…

My Monday Motivation Through Change

What gets you motivated for the week ahead? Do you like to have a plan in place, or a goal to accomplish? Do you like to fill your thoughts with positive vibes? Or have your cup of strong coffee? I like to do a bit of it all, but I think it is extra important to keep yourself motivated all week long, grabbing inspiration from wherever suits your goals at the time. This Monday I find myself overwhelmed by change. Change is an interesting concept, and in the middle of a transformation, it can be both beautiful and terrifying. Change…
