Be Inspired

Feeling inspired by the people in my life who follow their heart, their dreams, never give up, believe in the good, and who support me always, love me no matter the day, and prove to me more times than they know that anything is possible 🧡 I’m so blessed to have each of you in my life for so many reasons.
 
Every one of you have touched my heart in a special way and motivate me to be the best version of myself🦋 So much that today I wrote out the outline for the book I was meant to write because of each of you ❤️ Thank you!
 
Have a beautiful weekend and a happy Easter!be inspired

Share Your Passion

It’s amazing how when we set our minds to something and believe in ourselves that not only can we make our dreams come true, we can inspire those around us to do the same 🧡

I’m so excited to start a new adventure with a friend who inspires me, that I just want to spread the incredible good vibes to everyone I meet. I get to write! And I get to write about positive programs for kids and our community. Looking forward to the fun road ahead!

Walk through the doors of opportunity, and share your story and your passion, and share it again. It will make an impact, and it will open the minds of others to listen to their hearts, so they too follow their true path in this life 🦋🧡

Surround Yourself With Positive Energy

There is nothing like being in the presence of incredibly positive and inspirational people. I am overly blessed to have so many friends and family that excite my soul so much that it makes me want to do more, be more, climb more and just give more. 🧡

Surround yourself with people who spark that light in you, who emit an energy that’s so intoxicating you forget about your fears and can’t wait to shout your dreams from the mountaintop. Those are your people, that is your tribe, spend time in those vibes as much as possible and just watch how you shine. 🦋🧡

Have a positively inspirational night!

Set Goals You Love

We set our goals for 2019, we made a list in our heads or it’s hanging on the fridge, but do those goals excite you, do they drive you, or do they make you cringe as you read them?🧡Set goals that get your blood flowing, that excite you to the core and make steps each day to reach those goals! You’ve got this, make it amazing! 🦋🧡

Dream It, and Then Just Do It

I was reminded today that if you want something you just have to go for it. It’s easy to sit and dream away the pounds, spend the money you will earn from all the success you are planning, hear the accolades in your head from those who are inspired by your work, imagine how your book will smell when you flip the pages, how the cover will emulate the amazing words on the inside, what kind of author picture you will take and how it will look sitting in the Barnes and Nobles….sorry, got distracted by my fantasy 😊

It’s important to dream, we need to dream, small, big, feasible and even what some may call impossible.  Dreaming fuels us, it’s exciting, it drives us outside of our comfort zone toward where we are meant to be, but many times this is where we stay, in dreamland. We know what we have to do, we know that in order to run a marathon we must train, and yet as we dream of the finish line, the early mornings, the long miles and the sacrifices are just not as glamorous as the medal. We know that in order to have a successful business, we must build it from nothing, and it takes time, effort, blood, sweat and tears, and in order to publish a book, you must write one. We know this, and yet we sit in dreamland, frustrated our dream hasn’t happened yet and wondering why.

You may have figured out by now, this is really my personal pep talk. I need to replace all the we’s with I’s, but I feel better about myself if I’m not the only one getting lectured 😉The frustration I have for myself can sometimes be overwhelming because every time I think I’ve defeated that pesky fear, it shows up as procrastination, social media, Netflix binges, social media, cleaning out and organizing closets that have never bothered me until the moment I sit down to write, and social media. Man, I really need social media anonymous. Its just so easy to fall into the blackhole of pointless thought, cute dogs and funny cats. It’s like a vacation for the mind, but it can be so difficult to reign it in.

Fear masks itself in many tricky ways, but the worst is when it appears in its true form, and whispers, “you’re not good enough”.  However, this post is my reminder, that the last time I looked fear in the face for the lie it really is, I wrote my first children’s book cover to cover 13k words in 10 days. I just did it and it felt amazing.  

So today, after getting into the ring with fear once again I am reminding myself of that moment, and how I squeezed my dream tight, let it go and then chased it until it was mine.  Our dreams are ours, in our hearts, on so many personal levels for so many reasons, but until we make up our minds to share it, that’s exactly where it will stay, but the moment we let go and begin to chase it, the more likely that dream will become our reality.

Keep dreaming, and just go for it!

Much Love,
