Persist. Repeat.

One of the most important features you need to possess as a person is persistence. Persistence means a firm continuance on a course of action in spite of difficulty or opposition. Honestly, there have been many times in my life when I have wanted to throw in the towel and just give up. Setbacks, difficult circumstances, and major changes in life can make you feel like you can never get ahead. But you must remember to be persistence and to ...

The Determined Woman

I’m a determined woman. I’m determined to succeed, to win, and more importantly, to thrive. I don’t merely want to exist, survive, or just get by, I want to enjoy my life and to thrive in it. Are you determined? Are you determined to not just live life but to thrive in it? Because there is a big difference. Do you realize that you are special and that you are meant to live a wonderful life? I know that life isn’t ...

Happy Within

For years, I struggled to be happy. I struggled primarily because I constantly determined my happiness by my situation and where I was in life. My mentality was, “I’ll be happy when…” I’ll be happy when I get this job, finish school, make more money, move to a better house, or fall in love. I didn’t understand that happiness has absolutely NOTHING to do with your circumstances and that is what this post is ...

Let It Go & Let It Be

  I’ve been known to put a comma in areas in my life where there should have been a period. I’ve gone against my better judgement before trying to give ex boyfriends second, third, or even thirty chances to change or I’ve gone against my intuition and not allowed myself to heal and move forward in life. I’ve learned that you need to let go and let it be. You have to put a period in your life on particular ...

Respect Yourself

Do you respect yourself? Do you have a deep regard for the woman that you are? Do you have boundaries for yourself or do you allow others to disrespect you? Do you care about yourself? Do you take care of your body and nurture your inner being? Do you respect your body with exercise and eating nutritious foods? Do you constantly give to others and never give back to yourself? Do you listen to your intuition and are you decisive with your ...

Nothing Changes, If Nothing Changes

Nothing changes, if nothing changes. Change is never easy and the truth is, it takes a lot of courage to make positive changes in your life. Getting out of old habits that don’t serve who you are and accepting your imperfections are never easy. However, it would hurt you more and longer to be unhappy and unhealthy if you stay in a situation, relationship, or circumstance that doesn’t serve the person that you are meant to be. ...

Being Soft While Being Strong

Usually, most people believe that in order to be strong, you must be tough, secure, hard, not feeling anything, or be a bad ass, and that is not always the case. You can be soft while being strong. You can be vulnerable, be open, and be loving towards yourself and others while being strong. The truth is, obstacles should only help mold you into being a better person. Usually, when struggle and disappointment occurs, we put up walls, trust ...

Good In & Good Out With Shantiva

Wellness is such an important aspect for our mental, physical, and emotional health. That’s why I’m so excited to share this beautiful copper water pitcher from Shantiva! I’m a firm believer that when you put good and healthy foods and water inside your body, it reflects on the outside. What I love about the copper pitcher is that it naturally alkaline(s) the water. It’s so amazing and there are so many wonderful ...

When I Became A Mother, I Became A Better Woman

“A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take.” I am so happy to be a mother! I don’t know who or what kind of person I would be if my daughters, Dylan Faith and Skylar Hope were not in my life. When they were born, they gave me a sense of purpose and love that I had never truly known before. Don’t get me wrong, I have days where I want to pull my hair out in frustration ...
