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 ...

Perfectly Imperfect

  Our bodies are perfectly imperfect. I’m sure you’ve see models in magazines and thought, “wow, she has the perfect body”, or “I wish my body looked like hers.” First off, those images are photo-shopped! Have you ever seen a model in a magazine with stretch marks, cellulite, or wrinkles? Probably not. That is one of the reasons why I chose to photograph myself in a bikini. As you can see, I have ...

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 ...

The Healthy Struggle

The struggle is always so real for me to eat healthy! I workout on a regular basis and try to lead a very healthy and active lifestyle. But I must confess that I have a major sweet tooth. I literally CANNOT turn down a cookie, cupcake, or slice of pie. I always feel like life is just too short to turn down a cookie and I always say, “you only live once!” So that’s where balance comes in. I believe that everything should be ...

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 ...
