Monday Mantra | Create Your Own Defining Moments

Monday Mantra | Create Your Own Defining Moments

I used to live my life waiting for the world to provide me defining moments. You know the moments that direct your path and define who you are? These are the moments that elicit the most excitement, joy, and let’s be honest, a whole lot of fear, and they are the ones that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.

But what I’ve come to learn is you don’t have to wait for life to provide them to you. No, my friend, you can create them yourself.

YOU are the author of your life, so why not create your own defining moments? It can be scary as hell to do so, but I promise, when you stop waiting and instead set out to create your own defining moments, your life will be filled with more love and joy than you could have ever imagined.

Monday Mantra | Seek Out Moments of True Connection

Monday Mantra | Seek Out Moments of True Connection

Happy Monday, my lovely friends! This week’s Monday Mantra is, Seek out moments of true connection.

With Christmas only a week away, it’s easy to get caught up in all that remains on your to-do list to prepare for the upcoming holiday, and to be fretting over all the gifts that remain on your list. But in doing so, you miss out on opportunities for true connection- whether with your family and friends or even a complete stranger. These moments of connection are truthfully what will be remembered and are the things you will carry in your heart for the rest of your life.

So if your holiday décor looks nothing like what you are seeing in your Instagram feed, or your gifts look like a 2-year-old wrapped them (Some gifts are awkwardly shaped making them absolutely impossible to wrap!), or you’ll be spending part of your Christmas Eve still out shopping for gifts, I’m here to tell you, it’s okay.  Do your best to worry less about those things, and instead, seek out those moments of connection that will fill your heart long after the holiday has passed.

Monday Mantra | Believe In Yourself

Happy Monday! Today’s Monday Mantra is, Believe in yourself.

With a new month right around the corner (how is it almost August already?!), I want to compassionately remind you that you are capable of great things. Allow yourself to stop playing small and step into the life you want. It's okay to believe in yourself. Sometimes you may be the only person that does.
