Take a Step Back

Many times in life we get so wrapped up in a situation, a project or relationship we forget why we began. Sometimes we are so blinded by making whatever we are doing work we lose sight of who we truly are or what we are truly trying to accomplish.

This can be in our work or personal life and sometimes taking a step back is exactly what we need to be successful. We are driven by timelines, smooth roads and wins and can easily become overwhelmed if there is a hiccup along the way. This can lead to overthinking and hyper analyzing and before you know it you are stuck in a mindset that won’t allow you to move forward.

Take a step back so you can breath, look at things from a different perspective, or just for a moment stop the madness in your head to find your heart. Then, when you’re ready you can step back in with fresh eyes and renewed sense of self.

Take a moment for you and for whatever or whoever may be involved. That time may allow you to see things differently and give you the strength to move forward in a way that is good for everyone.

Have a beautiful day!

Start a Cycle of Kindness

One simple gesture, one helpful intention or kind word and one person’s day may be altered for the better. That one person may pass on those same good deeds to another and the cycle continues. In one day you may impact one, ten or a hundred. 🧡

This impact is just as great if you choose to not say a word out of anger, jealousy or hate. Not reacting can have the same affect as reacting. “If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it”.

Choose kindness, love and respect to begin your week. Open your heart and walk with grace. Your actions or inactions may alter someones outlook for the better and in turn they may pass it on. Start the cycle of kindness, pass it on and see the change in yourself for the better🦋🧡

Make Memories

I made going somewhere new each year a goal of mine last year and it has evolved into road trips, concerts and unexpected vacations. This year I’ve taken it to a new level and I’m looking forward to an amazing line up of fun, laughter and memories. 🧡

There is so much to experience in this life, don’t limit yourself out of fear. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, just new. Treat your senses to new scenery, new people and new adventures.

All of the household chores, work and everyday life stuff will be there when you get back, take time to open your eyes and expand your mind to a new story to tell. 🦋🧡

Have a wonderful day!

Self Care Includes Sleep

It’s scientifically proven that your mental health affects your physical health, and vice versa, in many ways. It’s easy to overlook and the majority of the time we don’t even realize until we show up to work in our slippers, or insomnia takes over our nights.

Taking care of yourself in all ways mental and physical is so important for your health and your sanity. And while mental breaks, breathing deep, and caring for your mind is key, sometimes we forget that sleep is the body’s natural healing mechanism. Every now and then we need to check in with ourselves to make sure we are allowing ourselves enough.

I know it can sometimes be impossible to adjust your sleep habits and it’s a vicious cycle consisting of your daily practice, what you eat, and what your schedule allows. However try to be aware of how each of these are affecting your sleep and consider that lack of solid rest may be the root of how you are feeling inside and out.

Take care of yourself because you are worth it and living as the best version of you means feeling like it.

Have a beautiful day!

Appreciate the Little Things

Appreciate the little things in this life. A laugh with a friend, smile from a stranger, hug from a loved one, quiet drive to work, warm covers in the morning, fresh coffee, long conversations, sunshine on you face and the opportunity to choose how you see things. 🧡

Appreciate the beauty that surrounds you and the love that guides you. It’s the little things that fill your heart and show you just how incredible this life can be. 🦋🧡

Have an amazing day!
