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. ...

Loving Your Body, Without Conditions

Many times we put limitations and conditions on the way we love our bodies. I’ve heard people say, “I would like my body more if I could just lose 10 or 15 pounds.” Or, “If I could just tone my arms, lose this belly, have a bigger butt, or get rid of these stretch marks, I would love my body more.” The truth is, there is no perfect time to love your body. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make healthy ...

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 ...

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 ...

Reflections of A Woman

    As women, we must love ourselves. And loving ourselves involves identifying the good, the bad, and the ugly of who we are. It’s not always easy to address our issues but it is necessary to address them so that we can become our best selves. Three key aspects of loving yourself means accepting yourself unconditionally, forgiving those who may have harmed you, and choosing happiness despite your circumstances. I always try ...

Seeing Social Media For What It Really Is

I love social media! For me, I think it’s a great platform to connect, inspire, and empower women. While social media is a great tool to reach out to others and stay connected to family and friends, it can also display a false sense of reality and display images that seem to portray a perfect life. When the truth is, no one has a perfect life. I think it’s really important to monitor the images you see via social media. Just like ...

The Untamed Heart

  To be untamed means to be wild, free, undomesticated, and unbroken. I think it’s so important to keep our hearts free, open, and loving. Because of trials and tribulations in life, our hearts can become hardened, cold, and bitter towards ourselves and others. We dim the light that comes from within because of disappointment, struggle, and fear. But it’s so important to keep your heart open. When you do that, you allow for ...

Strong Is The New Pretty

I’m a strong girl AND I love being told how pretty I am. I think that those are two compliments that I will never get tired of hearing. It’s so important to be a strong woman. Because strong is pretty, strong is beautiful, strong is intelligent, and strong is also flawed. I’ve been through my fair share of trials and tribulations and I’ve always come out the other side better, stronger, and more resilient. I read once ...

You Can Spring From Something Hard & Turn Beautiful

I had a very rough start in life. I was born to a mother and father that were schizophrenic and could not physically, mentally, and emotionally care for me. Due to their instability, the hospital refused to allow them to take me home. My parents felt that giving me up for adoption was the best choice and I became an orphan for a brief time. I was legally adopted into a family when I was three months old. From there my childhood had many ups ...

Bend, Don’t Break

We are going to go through times in our lives that may be difficult and leave us wondering what lies ahead. It’s an uncomfortable feeling that can bring you down and you may feel alone, overwhelmed, and tired. I had lunch with a dear friend today who is over “it” as well. When I mean “it”, I mean life in general. She feels as if everything is crashing down around her and she just doesn’t have the will or ...
