How Habit Stacking Has Helped Me Create Routines (that I Don't Hate!)

How's THAT for a title? 😂 Seriously, though - I HATE SCHEDULES. Anything that stays the same, day after day feels monotonous on, like... day 2. 😬 Which makes life pretty tricky in general, because... well, the same things need to be done every day! I first heard about "habit stacking" a few years ago, and the idea intrigued me. So, here's what habit stacking is:  Basically, you start with ONE small habit, and you stack other little habits after that first one, as you learn & master them. Before you know it, you've got gentle routines that feel normal...

3 reasons why you should keep
 your life purpose VISIBLE. (+ how to do 
that)

Oh my WORRDDDDDDddddd, you guys. I have to talk a bit about a life purpose, because it's SUPER important, m'kay? A few days ago I posted some of the artwork we have hanging in our home - and today, I wanna talk about WHY.  There are a few things that are SUPER important to us as humans.

It's REALLY important for me to...

It's amazing to me that a few words strung together can dramatically change your day, the way you view the world (or yourself!), and impact you forever. 😍 In fact, most of the artwork in our house has some kind quote or verse on it. 😆 Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite quotes... and why they're so important to me! First up, is this quote. I think I found it on Instagram, or maybe Pinterest... but MAN,...

Dear Body,

Live Well.

Dear Body,  I am SUPER proud of you. For carrying and birthing 2 babies in 14 months. For keeping me alive. For fighting to get healthy again. For holding onto all that extra weight, because you knew I wasn't healthy inside. For letting go of it now that it's the right time. For the stretch marks, my Momma-stripes that remind me of how you stretched to make room for two inside babies. For every bit of extra fluff that makes me a little bit softer and squishier and just right for lots of snuggly hugs.    Dear Mind, I'm so thankful...

How to pick a "WORD" for the New Year.

At the end of every year, I usually start searching for a "word" for the New Year. Being a Jesus girl, I always start by praying. Is there something that God wants me to learn? Something new He wants to bring into my life? I usually think about it over the last week of the year.  I first heard of the "One Word" idea from my Mom, who mentioned it to me over a phone call. I was completely interested, and looked it up immediately. We usually make too many resolution.s. It's SUPER hard to keep track of them, much less...
