Body Love

Body Love is the title of a book by Kelly Leveque that I have read and loosely use to guide my nutrition. I say loosely because I have not been as intentional as I would like. But nutrition isn’t necessarily what I want to talk to you about today.

Getting What You Want

Brendan Burchard recently posted a quote on his Instagram that got me thinking. The quote stated, “Perhaps the universe isn’t giving you what you want because based on all of your distractions it is simply unclear what you are asking for.”

Living My Core Values

I have talked about determining what your core values are, but I haven’t really talked about how I apply my core values to my everyday life. I’ve been working really well to be intentional in living into my core values and I’d like to share with you some of what I’ve been doing.

Positivity or Toxic Positivity?

I am a friend who feels deeply and cares tremendously about those close to me. When a friend is hurting, I want to help them heal. When a friend is confused, I want to help them find clarity. When a friend is happy, I want to share in their joy. I am right beside my friends as much as I can be.

Boundaries

What does the term boundaries mean to you? Does it mean the common definition of boundary that states a boundary is a line that marks the limits of an area or is a limit of a subject or sphere of activity? Or does it mean something different? To me, it depends on what we are talking about. If we are talking about a property boundary, the definition above is what I think of.

I Forgive Myself

I can’t remember what I was doing when I heard this concept, but I was shocked. I felt dumb. Why hadn’t I thought of that? Why had I concerned myself more with forgiving other people than ever thinking about forgiving myself?

Is Journaling Right For You?

We’ve all heard the recommendation to journal each day. Sometimes the recommendation is made to journal about your gratitude. Other times it’s to free-flow write about whatever comes to mind. And yet, other times, we are pushed to journal about everything we go through each day. Some people recommend journaling every morning. Others recommend every evening before you go to sleep. I’ve tried each of these methods multiple times, and not all of it has stuck with me.

I’ve tried writing in cute little notebooks or on an app on my phone. I’ve purchased structured journals and copied the structure into cute notebooks. I’ve tried structured apps and free-flow apps. Apps on my phone and computer. I was at a point where I was trying every method that I heard because I was trying to comply with every recommendation.
