Don039;t let yesterday use up too much of today. Today I vow to accept things as they are - hold space with my feelings, define my feelings, and be at peace knowing everything is temporary. Embrace the moment and truly be here and now ✌🏻
STRETCH goals I remember the first time I decided to fundraise for the @cupcakegirlsorg and @joyehoover asked me what my stretch goal was. 🤔 ummm 🤔 I had never heard the term before and I was horrible at making goals, especially if I was supposed to write them down. "Stretch goals inspire us to think big and remind us to focus on the big picture" Dean Bokhari If it doesn039;t scare you and make you want to vomit 🤢 it isn039;t BIG enough!! Stretch goals are amazing, and I create them once a month. Those big scary things I want to accomplish in my professional and personal life. But I also use SMART goals. "SMART goals — goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timebound — help us form a concrete plan of action in order to make the stretch goal a reality" Dean Bokhari And yes, you really do need both types of goals in your life. Write them down, share them with a spouse, tell them to a friend, send them to me in a DM - HAVE THEM!!
It039;s true. Self-care is not selfish, it is necessary. I used to put off doing things for myself because I felt it was only appropriate to do things for other - goodness I039;m thankful that beliefs is changed!! What is O-N-E thing you are doing today to show yourself love?! Me? Applying my favorite charcoal mask with a brush so I feel fancy af.
Exercise is a celebration of what the body can do, not a punishment for what you ate. Honor and respect your body, it is the only one that you get.
💛Brighten Up💛 Is your skin looking a little dark and dull? Instantly brighten your skin and reduce dark spots with a safe serum. Covering myself in sunshine today, and some much needed rain falls outside.
🔥sunburn🔥 did you know? even a single sunburn can increase your risk of skin cancer?! swipe to see the photo that popped up in my memories today 😳 i cannot go back and fix the past, but i sure as heck can protect myself moving forward. ✔️ check your sunscreen, make sure it DOES NOT include benzene - need a sample of safer sunscreen, let me know 🧴wear sunscreen daily, yes even on cloudy days - need a sample of safer sunscreen, let me know ☀️ enjoy the sun, it has so many benefits - need a sample of safer sunscreen, let me know
run & be happy accept the days when running feels impossible. embrace the days when running feels effortless.
action. it039;s easy to be inspired by someone take make a change. inspired to workout. inspired to save money. inspired to travel the world. inspired to start a business. inspired to take care of yourself. it039;s much more difficult to be inspired by someone and actually take the actions to make a change. by change only happens when we take action. get uncomfortable. go outside the box. be bold. take the action. make the change.
Super excited to go back to work tomorrow. I am beyond exhausted from house remodeling all weekend. I have a new appreciation for those of you who do manual work daily 🥵
