Have you ever thought that when you feel like NOTHING is going right?
YEP. Been there. I sometimes call those days I’m-going-to-cry-my-eyes-out-and-it’s-only-10am-days.
The goal with those type of days is to reduce and recontrol. Let me explain…
I don’t know about you, but I’d like as few bad days as possible. Can I avoid them 100% of the time, no. NOT. EVEN. CLOSE. But I can choose to take control of my life and do all the things to set myself up for great days. What are “all the things”? Glad you asked.
It’s choosing happiness. It’s waking up with a good attitude. It’s having routines that set you up for success. It’s not allowing yourself to adopt OTHER’S emotions. It’s owning your own expectations. Weeding out the negative, toxic, and distracting from your life. All the things that are easier said than done, but so important. So if you are finding that your “bad days” are outweighing your good days, take a look at some methods of reducing those.
REAL MOMENT: Last month nothing was routine, or "intentional" about my day. My diet was off, my sleeping was off, my outfits were mostly sweat/hoodie combos. Living my best life? Probs not. BUT at least I knew that. I knew that I'd fallen off track when it came to my routines and habits.
We all fall off from time to time, and we need to take a moment and not only recognize what is happening our lives but know it's OKAY 👈👈👈
Our lives go through seasons of change big or small (vacation, new baby, job change, literal season change--you name it!). And depending on where you are right now, some of your habits and routines might need to change with you.
THAT IS O K A Y 😅
What isn't okay is giving up. That is why this week I focused on the best steps and tips I could give you to get BACK ON ROUTINE and GET YOUR LIFE TOGETHER.
Because while it's fun to take a break (and sometimes really needed), we have routines for a reason. So here are the 5️⃣ tips I used to get my life back on t...
Ladies, today is #girltalk 101 and the topic is: Dating a Narcissist 😨
Has your boyfriend/significant other done any of the following:
1. Treated you better when you've dressed up
2. Flirted with other women
3. Ignored you when they are with other people
4. Blamed you when something didn't go right for them
If ANY of these things has happened to you, this week's video is for you! Because ALL of these above situations have happened to me in past relationships and I wish I knew what I was dealing with before I was emotionally connected to the situation. Learn from my mistakes by following the tips in this video:
MONEY! Now that I have your attention 😜 let's talk about money.
It's something that can make or break your happiness if you let it. So this week I've put together my best tips for teenagers on how to budget and use personal finances to set themselves up for a better future.
Because letzbereal learning how to manage money when you are young is HARD! So I've simplified it into 5 easy steps to take away the confusion and fear of managing your money.
What I've found with my coaching clients is that so many people don't really think about money. Now, yes, you probably spend a lot of time THINKING about money but it's not on how to utilize it. You are thinking of how to spend it. And if you have found yourself in money trouble, you are spending a great chunk of your time thinking about how to get more money.
My goal today is to help set up my younger audience members with the tools that they need to avoid financial problems in the future. TOO MANY of my peers, friends and even family memb...
Do you have some NONSENSE in your life? I know that I have struggled with this in the past! It seems that all of us really have to fight to keep what matters most in our lives and DESTROY the nonsense that will creep in if we let it.
And what is nonsense? Anything that detracts from your progress, success and most importantly your happiness.
And while that sounds really simple to see and root out of your life...it isn't. In my coaching career I have found that teens and students struggle with this the very most. Why? A lot of reasons, but mainly we don't know better, we feel incredible pressure to fit in, or we think it's "normal". That's why nonsense is so scary. It will steal your happiness without you even knowing it.
In this week's video I share two stories from my youth that illustrate how I let nonsense steal my joy and what I did (or didn't) do about it. My hope is that by sharing these examples you will be able to identify some areas of nonsense in your own life. And don't be de...
When was the last time you did something that really scared you?
For me, it was doing this video. Why? Lots of reasons.
1. It's different than the other videos on my channel--what if it flops? What if no one watches? What if it is weird?
2. It's raw. It's real. It shares personal information about my life--SCARY. What if people reject ME?
I'll spare you the whole list, but those were just a few of the ideas I had swimming in my head this week as I prepped and edited my video.
So what is this video about? Glad you asked. INSPIRING ENVY. Sound a little weird? Hear me out.
"Inspiring Envy" was the phrase I heard years and years ago (from who knows where) but it really stuck with me. I wrote it down as my personal theme for 2013. Well, years go by, we forget personal mantras and life happens. Fast forward a couple years, and I was NOT HAPPY.
I was in a job I LOATHED. I felt lost, confused, and so far away from my life goals. That is when I happened to run across this phrase again...
