    Patience, Resilience, Gratitude

    It’s hot. We have a virus and its summer. Welcome to July. We are 7 months into this year and man oh man if you would have told me this was what this year was going to currently look like, I would have blatantly laughed in your face. I would have looked at you as if you were crazy. I would have told you that this was going to be hands down the best year ever. Oh, the memories…. Well, while it hasn’t necessarily been the best year ever it hasn’t been the worst and I guess for that we can be thankful. These 7 months have taught us a…

    June Monthly Motivation

    Man, a lot has been happening. I have been constantly reminded of the old saying of when it rains it pours. It seems like something new pops up every day. And these new things aren’t good. With that being said, we can’t let the things going on around us, cause us to be negative, and rob us of our joy. With that being said, for this month’s motivational post, let’s focus on three things to keep us uplifted during these difficult times. Temporary Bad things don’t last forever. They can’t and they won’t. We have to keep this in mind. The things seen are temporary. Now I fully know that…

    Now is the Time for Self-Care

    During this time of self-isolating, self-care is important. Really, self-care is important all the time. It should be something that we are incorporating into our life on a regular basis.  If you have never looked into doing a self-care routine, now might be the best time ever. Why Why should you engage in self-care? Because it’s good for you, that’s why. Self-care is good for helping us to have a positive relationship with ourselves. It also helps us manage our health and levels of stress. Our mental health and emotional health are protected when we practice self-care. If we choose to practice self-care during some much needed alone time, it…

    100 Days Can Make a Difference

    None of us (for the most part) likes being told what to do. Especially if what they are telling us is not what we want to do or it hinders us from doing what we need (want) to do.  That is the situation all of us are in right now. We all, for the most part, could have never imagined that we would be in this situation right now. Before, we were going about our daily lives, and all was well. Well, we thought all was well but it was not. I think this is a clear indicator and reminder to us about how things can change so quickly in…

    How to make this year different

    January 2020 January 2020 is here and of course and we are moving right along into this month and now we only have a few days left in it. It’s crazy how time flies and then you are left but to wonder how it goes so fast. We are officially past the happy new year’s and all the excitement and back to the everyday grind. While I know some are still being consistent with their gym goals and healthy eating goals (I am one of them), I know some of you have already jumped that ship a long time ago (just saying). Be it as it may, we still have…

    New Season, A Shift In You (October 2019 Monthly Motivation)

    October signals a change. Summer ends and fall begins. Kids are getting back in the swing of things with school. October is the start of a different type of season and totally different feel. The weather starts to cool off and we really start to slow down on the previous month’s summer activities. We come to the realization that we only have a few months left in this year and that we probably want to make the best of them. So being that October is a season of shift and change, what shifts and change can we implement in our lives and in our behaviors with OURSELVES to make a…

    Well, it’s here; August has arrived and it’s in full swing. This is the month where people may start to realize that summer is close to being over. Some families may still be vacationing and some are bringing their vacations to a close.  This is also around the time when millions of students either go back to school or are starting to prepare for school.

They also start to think about how we only have four months left in…

    Yes Men

    Have you ever taken a close look at the people who you are surrounding yourself with? Are they people that tell you the truth? Or are they people that tell you exactly what you want to hear? If you find yourself constantly only hearing what you want to hear from your friends, family, and associates, you may have a case of being around a bunch of ‘yes men’. Yes men is a simple concept. This means that you have a bunch of people around that are only going to tell you good things.  Or the things that you want to hear. Essentially they always tell you ‘yes’, even when the…

Are you making good progress with the goals that you set for yourself earlier in the year? Is the vision that you set forth for yourself still clear? Are you being good to yourself by taking care of your health? Being that we are over halfway in this year, those are definitely…
