    Become The Best Version Of Yourself

    Become The Best Version Of Yourself Become the best version of yourself! Since I started my blog, I’ve been on a journey of self-improvement. Striving to become the best version of myself that I could be. This has taken a lot of reflection, changes, and growth from within.  My best friend’s death is what started my writing journey. It was an experience that changed me completely and there was no going back to who I was before that. Which isn’t a bad thing. In fact I’ve always appreciated the experience because of those changes it inspired. Now as I look back on that journey, I’ve developed these tips on how…

    Practicing Gratitude During The Coronavirus

    Practicing gratitude during the Coronavirus Practicing gratitude during the Coronavirus. Practicing gratitude is always important. With the Coronavirus, I’m finding it more important than ever.  This year has been crazy. I started the year thinking, this will be my year. I’ll be successful in going to the gym everyday, I’ll focus a ton on growing my business, and all these other amazing things I deemed necessary for my own happiness.  Well then I had tendinitis in my hand, which affected my ability to work and work out. No going to the gym for me, unless I wanted to do leg day everyday. Except I like walking, so that’s out. I…

    My Coronavirus Quarantine Reflections

    My Coronavirus Quarantine Reflections My Coronavirus quarantine reflections. Since being quarantined due to the Coronavirus, I’ve been reflecting on the entire experience. It’s definitely had many ups and downs, and even changed how I will prepare in the future. But that isn’t a bad thing because I have learned a lot.  The biggest scare for me was the financial aspect of the virus. I am not nearly as financially prepared as I want to be. Thankfully Nathan and I have made it through so far relatively unscathed, but many aren’t nearly that lucky. Being better prepared financially has become my biggest goal now, because we may not be this lucky…

    Coronavirus: How to Avoid Boredom While Social Distancing

    Coronavirus: How to Avoid Boredom While Social Distancing Coronavirus: How to avoid boredom while social distancing. It’s been about a week now that we’ve had to socially distance ourselves from everyone else due to the Coronavirus. Restaurants are closed, schools, concerts, and sporting events are cancelled. What is there to do? I’m a homebody by nature and I love being able to work at home, but even I am getting bored at this point.  Nathan and I went to the grocery store yesterday afternoon, and it was just a weird experience. The first store we attempted to go to was just busy. The parking lot looked like Black Friday kind…

    How I Became A Blogger

    How I Became A Blogger How I became a blogger. Many people have asked me why I started blogging, and I am typically fairly guarded about my answer. Because the answer is not only lengthy, but it is painful as well. But I have reached a point where I feel I need to tell my story. I have been blogging for just over a year now, and I can’t imagine doing anything else for a career because I love it.  My story starts with my best friend dying, unfortunately. That is where the real changes started. I thought I had death down to a science and how I reacted to…

She is inspiring with her body positivity message and just giving others a place to come and be themselves as well. She is beyond supportive of me and I appreciate everything she does.  So without further delay,…

    Sunshine Blogger Award

    I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I’ve been nominated for these kind of awards before, but for the longest time didn’t understand it. Somehow I thought if I was nominated, there would be a vote and a winner. Oh, the days when I was still figuring out Twitter and how it all worked. Lol. Now I just laugh at myself and my lack of understanding. I want to thank my fellow bloggers, Esmeralda Muñoz from My Shades Of Emerald and Tinka from Tinkablee and The Mini Small Holder for nominating me for this award. It is truly an honor to be recognized by other bloggers for my…

    Giving To The Ungrateful

    I absolutely love Christmas and the entire holiday season in general. I love celebrating my family, my husband, and my friends. I am very much a gift-giving person, it is simply my personality. The question is, how do we give to the ungrateful? That is something that is on my mind right now. My husband and I have this tendency to buy gifts throughout the year, and then stash them away in a closet until Christmas time rolls around. It is one of those things where we find a perfect gift for someone and automatically pick it up. You know when you see an item and it just screams someone’s…
