Another Trip Around the Sun

When I originally started this post, summer was just winding down and a cool breeze had just begun to greet me during my morning commute. Well, it’s now January 17, 2019, and there is a single-digit low predicted this weekend. Great. Clearly, time has gotten away from me but the motto of my life, better…

New Year, Same Me

GOOOOAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL. Does anyone else watch international soccer just to hear the announcer SCREAM “goal” with literally a thousand O’s? No? Alright, well, you’re missing out..and aside from the plural of this word, this is completely irrelevant to my post but I’ve reached the point where I’m very comfortable in my writing voice and y’all are…

5 Lies

Whether we own up to it or not, we all tell lies to ourselves. And despite the negative connotations associated with lying, not all lies are necessarily bad. Now, before you start thinking I live a life riddled with deceit, let me explain. I like to think the REASON behind a lie is what makes…

…BECOMING…

On Tuesday night, I had the absolute pleasure of attending the opening night of Michelle Obama’s Becoming tour. As if that wasn’t an opportunity enough in itself, Oprah was the moderator and Y’all know how I love me some Oprah! Aligning with the release of her new book, Becoming, the conversation included stories of meeting…

Master.Mission.Mate

Intention (noun) – to have something in mind as a plan or purpose. Manifestation (noun) – an event, action, or object that clearly shows or embodies something. Intention and manifestation have been wellness buzzwords of 2018 and have served as the source of most of those “long post alert” IG captions. It seems as though…

A Mind Dump, literally.

A month ago – yes, a freaking month ago, embarrassingly – on my Instagram story I mentioned I would be writing a piece over Labor Day weekend that I was really excited about after a month of crickets on the blog. Well, absolutely zero writing occurred during the holiday weekend or the past few weeks…

“Free Yo’ Mind”

Our brain is by far our most powerful muscle. Like our bodies, the mind requires proper training and nutrition to perform at maximum capacity but is often forgotten, especially when it comes to daily maintenance until we start spinning. This past month hasn’t necessarily been a spin for me but it’s been NONSTOP. Birthday celebrations,…

Junk Free July

I love a good theme as much as the next girl. It’s fun, keeps me on target and allows me to focus all of my energy on one clearly defined outcome. We kicked off the summer focusing on re-calibrating our goals to reflect our values and making a plan to attack them. Now, I don’t…

Mission. Critical.

Mission Critical. It’s the way you move. The daily decisions you make. The actions your take. It’s an all-encompassing approach to goal-setting that drives the grind to transforming your dreams into reality. And it’s about to blow your mind, or at least it did mine. I must note, I cannot take credit for this idea….

Passion in Motion

Let’s be real, there’s only 24 hours in the day and the majority of those hours are spent sleeping, working and eating with a sprinkle of adulting responsibilities. It’s almost anxiety provoking to think about “finding time” for your passions. For the most part, the structure of my day is no different than most. Wake up,…
