The 3 Things You Need To Pamper Yourself At Home

The 3 Things You Need To Pamper Yourself At Home

The last time I had a spa day, I walked out spending $250. Crazy, right?!? I’m all for relaxing pampering sessions, but this girl has bills to pay, and $250 spa days aren’t in the budget. So what did I do instead? I brought the […]

It’s Okay To Take A Break

It’s Okay To Take A Break

Yesterday, I chose to take today off from work (which is my Friday). As I drove home from work last night, a feeling of guilt came over me. I sat with this feeling for a bit and attempted to identify what was triggering this feeling […]

The Lesson I Learned From Bob Seger

The Lesson I Learned From Bob Seger

This last Thursday I did some serious reflecting while jamming out at a Bob Seger concert. There was one moment when Bob came to the edge of the stage near me and was singing his heart out. On the screen behind him was a picture of his younger self (keep in mind he is 73 years old), and I couldn’t help but reflect on life at that moment.

I kept wondering, “Is Bob sad that this is his last tour? Does he wish he could go back and do it all over?” My curiosity was peaked, and I was reminded of my mission to live my best life. No matter what, we will age. It’s inevitable. There is no going back, only forward. In that moment of reflection, I whispered (more like yelled) to my husband, Bob is living his best life right now. Bob so graciously reminded me that we only get one shot at this life, so we need to make sure we rock-and-roll our way through it.  

As you sip your coffee, tea, or other morning beverage this morning, I challenge you to do some self-reflecting. 

  • Are you living your best life?
  • What would it look like to live your best life? 
  • What step can you take today towards achieving your best life? 
  • What negative habit is keeping you from achieving your best life?
  • When you are older and reflecting on a picture of your younger self, will you be able to say that you made the most of your time? 

If you love Bob Seger as much as me, drop your favorite song in the comments below 👇🏼

Let That Shit Go

Let That Shit Go

Today’s message is brought to you by my coffee cup. My hubby bought me this cup when I was in the throes of grad school, having an ugly emotional come apart, and minutes away from throwing in the towel. I was burning the candle at […]

Reading As Self-Care and The 4 Things I need

Self-care is LIFE you all! If you are not engaging in self-care, you need to bust out your calendar right now and schedule some you time.  If self-care is foreign to you, and you’re reading this thinking, “Girl, get real! I have no time to […]

What Self-Care and Change Have In Common

What Self-Care and Change Have In Common

I beg you to stop giving away all of your change! 

I look at energy the same way I look at change. If I give away all of my change, I will be left broke with an empty piggy bank. If I give away all of my energy, I will be left empty. What good is an empty me?!?

I want to ask you three questions and challenge you to reflect on your answers for a minute… 

  1. How well does an empty piggy bank serve you? 
  2. How well does an empty you serve yourself? 
  3. How well does an empty you serve your family, friends, or co-workers?

What awareness did you gain after reflecting on your answers? Did your answers surprise you? 

I challenge you to look at energy the same way you look at money. Would you give away your money to just anyone? Would you go to work and hand out dollar bills to your co-workers? My guess is you probably wouldn’t, and if you did, you would probably give money to people who have earned it. This is the same with energy. Give your energy to people who have earned. Make sure you are leaving change in your piggy bank! 

Repeat after me…. Self-care is not selfish! If you struggle with self-care and feelings of selfishness, I want you to remember this… self-care is the equivalent of putting change in your piggy bank. 

Leave a comment below and tell me how you have engaged in self-care this week.
