Do You Own Your Accomplishments?

Do You Own Your Accomplishments?

Think back to the last time that an opportunity came up for you to toot your own horn. What did you do? How did you feel? What did you say? If you’re anything like I am, you may have tried to shrug it off, feel awkward or embarrassed, and say something like, “it’s not a big deal” or “I couldn’t have done it without your help” or “I barely did anything”. There is a pattern of self-deprecation and the handing off of accomplishments among women that has got to go.

6 Tips to Help you Strengthen your Integrity

When you look back on the last year, in what ways does your life look vastly different? In what ways does it feel unusually the same? Perhaps you’ve experienced a career shift, friendship changes, or a big move to a new place. Maybe you’ve found a new morning routine, life mindset, or exciting hobby. Regardless of how things look or feel different, one thing is true: you’ve changed. Over this past year, you’ve grown in your own ways and that is worth celebrating (champagne anyone?) and honoring.

Are you Limiting your own Abundance?

Are you Limiting your own Abundance?

The quality of your experience during the holiday season can quickly feel measured by what is or is not physically available to you - finances, friendships, family, etc. But the truth is that the moment you start limiting your abundance to what you’re physically surrounded by (at anytime of year) is the moment you sell yourself short. What if there is abundance to be found in *every area of your life*, but you’re just not allowing yourself to truly see it?

Status Anxiety: What it is and how to let that shit go

With endless Instagram feeds, self-help books, and fitness commercials telling you what you need to do be, or buy to become “the better you”, it’s no wonder why you’ve been feeling like you just can’t get to where you “should be”. It’s no wonder why you’ve begun to convince yourself that you’ll never be enough.

Kickstart Your Self-Discovery with These 5 Questions

As you scroll through social media, it’s easy to see the surface of people’s lives and start to categorize them: the yogis, the lifestyle bloggers, the Instagram Moms, the clean eaters, the business owners. But not only is that unfair to those in our online communities who are SO much more than a label - it’s also unfair to you.

For the highs and lows
And moments in between,
Mountains and valleys
And rivers and streams.
For where you are now
And where you will go,
For “I’ve always known”
And “I told you so,”
For “nothing is happening”
And “All has gone wrong,”
It’s here in this journey
You will learn to be strong
You will get where you’re going,
Landing where you belong.”

Ok friends. Tomorrow is my LAST day of this 3 week cleanse. I’m most looking forward to breakfast bc that’s my favorite meal of the day. I love it all but if I had to pick it’d be biscuits and gravy. Hands down. Second best is bacon and eggs on top of lettuce with avocado and homemade garlic aioli.  What’s your favorite breakfast food? And if you say you don’t eat breakfast, I’m afraid we can’t be friends. Haha I’m only slightly kidding😉
Few things in life are truly final, which is why perfectionism is a script that doesn’t fit who we are or ever feel right.✨It goes against what life truly is – a practice. We practice to not only make mistakes and learn from them, but to make mistakes and love ourselves in spite of them.😘

Seems like yesterday we sold our condo in the city and moved into this cozy home in the suburbs. But then in a weird way it feels like we’ve lived here forever. The way the stairs creak and the front door takes a bit of a wiggle to lock. It’s perfectly imperfect in every way. I’m slowly realizing it’s less about the stuff you fill it with and more about the quality of life lived and memories made inside these 4 walls...
You don't have to be the best.
You only have to be yourself.
⠀⠀
You only have to be real.
And speak from the heart.
And know that you have the right
to see how you see,
and think how you think,
and feel what you feel,
and desire what you desire.
⠀⠀
You don't have to be a success
in the eyes of the world
and you don't have to be an expert.
⠀⠀
You only have to offer what you offer,
breathe how you breathe,
make mistakes and fuck up and
learn to love your stumbling and
say the wrong thing and stop
worrying so much about 
impressing anyone,
because in the end you
only have to live with yourself,
and joy is not given but found
in the deepest recesses of your being,
so there can be joy in falling 
and joy in making mistakes
and joy in making a fool of yourself
and joy in forgetting joy
and then holding yourself as you crumble 
to the ground and weep out 
the old dreams.
⠀⠀
Joy is closeness 
with the one you love:
You.
⠀⠀
You don't have to be the best.
You don't have to win.
⠀⠀
You only have to remember
this intimacy with 
the sky, the nearness of the
mountains and feel the warmth 
of the sun on your face 
and know that you are alive,
and that you are a success,
and victorious,
without having to prove 
a damn 
thing.
