Pep Talk Tuesday {Define Your Success}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Define Your Success}

‘Either your life exists for your business or your business exists for your life.” – Unknown Running, running, running. This wedding season – actually, scratch that. This entire YEAR has felt like a marathon. A long, beautifully messy, tiresome, fulfilling, seemingly never ending marathon. I’ve been so tremendously lucky to travel to some amazing places […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Today’s Potential for Happiness}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Today’s Potential for Happiness}

Do you ever dream so big your head – or heart – could burst? Or better yet, do you ever feel heavy with overwhelm? I’ve been on the verge of bursting lately. And today I woke up feeling a bit tired, not physically, but mentally because the hopes and the dreams inside this head of […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Ignore the Rest}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Ignore the Rest}

So a friend sent me this article the other day. After a frazzled phone call from yours truly of course. Mind blown. Life changed. I’m not sure about you, but I often place too much value on other’s opinions concerning my decisions and actions. I feel validated when a friend tells me something is a […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Trusting Your Gut}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Trusting Your Gut}

Intuition. Gut. That feeling. If you’ve read Dave Ramsey’s Entreleader (highly recommended for anyone running their own business especially those who are looking to hire team members), you’ll know he talks about his wife getting a ‘feeeeeling’ when she felt a new potential hire wasn’t the right fit. I laughed a little when I read […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Simple Pleasures}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Simple Pleasures}

During many years of competive gymnastics, I often found myself sacrificing typical outings and activities for practices and competitions. Such was the case that time my parents decided to take our family to Disney World for the first time. It was the fall of my eight grade year and my brother was finally old enough […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Finding Your Boom}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Finding Your Boom}

This past weekend I spent a good two days creating a killer backdrop for next weekend’s wedding. From Menards to Lowes, lots of sawdust, purple paint, and a run to the wholesaler, I finally put together a backdrop that I’ve been dreaming up for about a year now. When it was all done and put […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {You Are Enough}

Pep Talk Tuesday {You Are Enough}

I have to write this today. And just let the words flow out, yo! Not to sound like a broken record here, but last year around this time now I was an emotional mess. I had a hard exterior and everything in my life put together but inside I was sad, sad, sad and frustrated […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Pay It Forward}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Pay It Forward}

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Pay It Forward movement. You know, cover the cost of groceries for the teary eyed mom with three kids in front of you when her two cards decline. Or help carry the elderly man’s groceries to his car in the pouring rain. Or my personal fave because it’s so […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Waiting}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Waiting}

If we wait until we’re ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives. I went through and cleaned up my Pinterest boards a little over the weekend. I came across the above quote that I had pinned months ago and it really hit a nerve with me. I’ve taken so many risks in […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Do It}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Do It}

When’s the last time you did something or rather didn’t do something because you were fearful of what others thought? I up until very recently used to live most of my life this way, trying to cater to a reality that I assumed others would be appreciative and accepting of. I had little to no boundaries […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Social Media Free Weekends}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Social Media Free Weekends}

I’m obsessed with my phone. My Mom jokes that I probably take it to the washroom with me. Sad truth: I do. Late last year, after reading and following Lara’s The Challenge, I decided to tackle a social media free weekend myself. I knew it would be hard and I secretly dreaded being without my […]

Pep Talk Tuesday {Letting Go}

Pep Talk Tuesday {Letting Go}

My parents have a Barbara Krueger painting (not an original) hanging in their home. My mom had an artist recreate the painting for her and all I remember is how badly she wanted that thing. To her it symbolizes an important part of living a fulfilling life that of which is letting go. I’ve always […]
