Monday Mantra | Life is Messy, Complicated, and Beautiful

I don’t know about you, but my life has rarely gone as planned. It’s taken twists and turns that I could have never predicted or even knew existed.

This life, my friend can certainly be messy and complicated, but boy, it sure can be beautiful. While that may seem contradictory, I’ve found that the messy and complicated moments- the things that I never could have predicted- have resulted in the greatest feelings of joy. It’s truly where the beauty of life resides.

Monday Mantra | You Are Worthy Of Great Things

Monday Mantra | You Are Worthy Of Great Things

Why is it so easy to dismiss our inherent worthiness- to believe we don’t deserve great things, and to give into that inner voice telling us we can’t? Well, my love, I’m here to tell you that YOU are worthy of great things. You deserve everything this life has in store for you, so let your light shine, my darling.

It won’t always be easy, and sometimes that inner voice telling you you aren’t worthy will feel too loud. But in those times, know I believe in you, and when you need that pep talk to remind yourself that you’re worthy, I’ve got your back.

You deserve that, my darling, and in those times you don’t think you do, remember, I’ve got your back and I am happy to remind you just how wonderful you are.

Monday Mantra | Believe You Can And You Will

Monday Mantra | Believe You Can And You Will

Why is believing in yourself the hardest part? Trust me, friends, I struggle with it too.

It’s far too easy to let fear take the driver’s seat and give in to the self-doubt. But when you are able to step away from it, that, my friends, is where the magic happens. When you believe you can, you truly will be able to do anything- no matter how impossible it may seem.

And in those times where fear and self-doubt feel too big to overcome, know I believe in YOU.

Monday Mantra | Always Strive To Pick Others Up, Not Tear Them Down

Monday Mantra | Always Strive To Pick Others Up, Not Tear Them Down

Happiest of happy Mondays, friends! This week’s Monday Mantra is, Always strive to pick others up, not tear them down.

In those times when we we choose competition over community, we easily forget that each person we encounter- whether they play a significant role in our lives, or we simply pass them by as we scroll through our social media feeds- is doing the very best they can. We truly never know the battle another person is fighting, and when you choose to put others down, you spend your energy bringing darkness into the world. So instead, strive to use your words and actions for kindness, share a smile with a stranger, and never miss an opportunity to let others know you appreciate them. By doing so, your energy will be spent spreading more light to everyone around you.
