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 ...

Looking Back and Looking Within

  I read once, “that the only time you should look behind you is to see how far you have come.” I couldn’t agree with that statement more. Honestly, there’s no need to look back. The past is dead and gone, however,  I think it’s important to reflect upon your life and see the positive changes in your life. So, how do you feel about the person that you are today? Are you where you want to be? Are you ...

Nourish Your Soul

Over the years, I’ve amassed quite the self help selection of books. I’ve always been an avid reader and always interested in improving myself and healing old wounds. I wanted to share some of the books I’ve read that have helped me love myself, improved my outlook on life, forgive those who have hurt me, and even one that taught me how to practice the art of gratitude. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle is a book that I ...

The Mind Body Connection

  Do you know that your body hears everything that your minds says? There is a mind body connection and it’s so important for you to think positively about your body and of yourself. What do you think about yourself? Are you loving, patient, and kind towards who you are? Or are you negative, judgmental, and not self confident? I have to be honest and say that that was me. At one point in my life, I had low self-esteem, was ...

Living Beautifully

What is your life like? Is it beautiful? Are you happy with what you see? If you’re not happy, what would it have to look like for you in order to be beautiful? Henry David Thoreau said, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” The truth is, there is beauty in your life if that’s what you see. For example, I have a two bedroom apartment for just my two beautiful little girls and I. It ...

You And You

There’s you and you. The most important relationship you will ever have. Have you really ever put much thought into that? You loving yourself is so imperative to your well being and I don’t think we truly love and appreciate ourselves the way in which we should. So let’s talk about you and you. Let’s talk about how vital and significant it is to love you. You are the beholder of your own happiness, you set the tone of ...

One Of A Kind

Your body is one of a kind and that is just one of the reasons why it is so beautiful! As women we are so critical of our bodies. We negate, degrade, and compare our bodies with other women and that is so disrespectful to ourselves. Your body doesn’t look like anyone else’s and that is why it is so special. There’s no need to look like the women in the magazines because the truth is, they don’t even look like ...

The Confident Woman

What does confidence look like to you? Is it boldness, fearlessness, or tenacity? Well, maybe. But confidence is also about facing your fears, feeling insecure, and unsure about yourself at times. What makes you confident is the will to keep moving forward despite the fear, knowing that you are enough, and maintaining your standards regardless of how vulnerable and unsure you may feel. That’s what makes a woman confident and ...

Inner Beauty

A beautiful face will age and a perfect body will change but a beautiful soul will always be a beautiful soul… There’s just something about a woman who is beautiful on the outside yet kind and loving on the inside. She’s rare, she’s special, and yes, beautiful. I think it’s so important to be kind on the inside because it radiates on the outside. I hope that you’re not one hundred percent invested in ...

The Face of Feminism

  I’ve always been the type of girl who liked other women. I’ve always seen women as my equal, complimented other girls on their beauty, applauded their victories, and encouraged them to be their best selves. If that makes me a feminist, great! This post is called The Face Of Feminism because I feel that women need more support from other women. Women are taught to compete with their fellow woman and the fact of the matter ...
