How to Keep Commitments to Yourself

Lately I have noticed that a lot of the tasks on my lists do not get crossed off or keep getting pushed to the next day’s list. These are obviously important tasks or else I wouldn’t have written them down, right? Things like train for the half marathon, clean the shower, fold the laundry, write. These tasks are necessary to my well-being. Yet I find reasons why they cannot be accomplished at their set times on my list.

The Secret About Happiness

These were the things that were making me sad and anxious and causing self-doubt. Until I started to remember the bigger picture. Life isn’t about each and every second of every day.

(Even though I am still racing to pay off mine as quick as possible.) It’s about the overall impact your life has on the people and things around you.

The Sweetness of Doing Nothing

I decided to jump off the insta-perfect train about 4 months ago. Honestly, I don’t remember the exact day. I just remember thinking that I couldn’t do this anymore.

Welcome to 2018, Your Most Successful Year Yet

I love the first week of a new year. It is filled with rushed excitement trying to get everything done to ensure that your year starts off on the right foot. At least we are all hoping to start our year off on the right foot. It is also the time to hit the reset button from last year. Maybe you didn't accomplish everything that you wanted last year, well now here's your chance! It was this thought that had me thinking of our theme for this month: Do You, Not New.
