Motivational Monday | Pray Your Way Out Of It 

For the second time in less than a year I find myself unemployed. In July of 2016 I quit my job at a daycare that I had been at for 6 years. I went on to finish and gain my MBA in Marketing that August, and by September I was in a new role. While the role was not full-time, it was a step in the right direction and I was able to put my Masters to use. Although I was offered the ‘potential’ of a full-time position in this role in January as fate would have it, a job I loved was not my destiny. So here I am, back to the drawing board. What’s next?

DIY Card For Any Occasion

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, aunts, god mothers, mother figures, etc. Today I celebrate my number one lady, my grandma. My mother passed away nearly 9 years ago, the day before my 17th birthday, my senior year of high school. My grandmother stepped in to the role of both mom and grandma which I can never  thank her enough for.  While I could buy her this and that, at 85 years old, what she enjoys most are heartfelt gifts. So what did I make? I decided to create an interactive card and the outcome, #AMAZING!

Wellness Wednesday | Trader Joe’s Haul

Welcome to another Wellness Wednesday here on the blog. I wanted to share my journey of adapting to a healthier lifestyle from exercise to completely changing what I eat. I noticed that previously when I’ve taken on a journey such as this, I would be fine for a couple months and fall off, hard. This time I’m taking baby steps. I’m not striving for perfection. I don’t have a particular goal in mind at this moment. I have long term goals, but I’m trying to find what works and really get into a rhythm. In this edition I’ll be  sharing my first ever Trader Joe’s Haul. Nothing major, but worth sharing my experience.

Motivational Monday | Irrelevant Goals?

When I come across something that makes me think outside the box or simply changes my perspective, I like to share it here on the blog. The purpose of this Motivational Monday series, even my Sound Off series for that matter is to challenge your way of thinking. Sometimes we get so boxed in to what “we” think that we tend to ignore the insightful thoughts of others. A Facebook video that I recently came across is one of those instances that made me think. The topic, goal setting. Are my goals irrelevant? Am I not progressing the way I want because I’m stuck?
