How to live Intentionally with your Calendar.

It's really hard to live intentionally when our calendar is full-to-bursting. (NOTE: I'm not saying it's impossible! I'm saying it's HARD.) I used to SERIOUSLY struggle with this. See; I had a REALLY bad habit of saying "yes" to things that didn't serve me or my family in the long run. Of saying yes of out guilt or feeling like I "should." Of saying "yes" because it's "what I'm supposed to do." NONE of this things are good reasons to say yes. So I want to dig into what it means for me to live intentionally with my calendar (and give...

How to have an Intentional Summer: It all starts with DREAMING BIG! (+ 3 Steps to Figuring Out Your Dream Summer Season!)

I'm going to be talking a LOT about intentionality this month - because it's one of the MAIN things I'm focusing on in my own life right now! I know ALL too well that summer is coming quickly. We just paid Zeke's last tuition bill for his preschool and life as we've known it for 9 months is about to change.  So I want to be REALLY purposeful about how we spend this summer. It's my last year with two kids at home almost full-time. It's our first year with kids instead of toddlers. Real-life talk: I really struggle with...

2 Truths about Comparison (and what to do about it.)

I was recently chatting with one of my best friends, and she was saying that she didn't understand how other women have it ALL together. I've felt the SAME WAY. You might be following the "perfect couple"on Instagram, and they've got time for a date night once a week, regular vacations, etc. You see a "perfect mom" who's seemingly got it all together, and her kids are involved in all the activities, and their family seems to be thriving. Or you've watching a fitness-guru, with a body to DIE for, and you wonder how she's going to college, fitting in a job, and...

4 Things you should ALWAYS remember about sticking with habits!

So, lately I've been on here writing about my thoughts on habits. Because... it's what I'm dealing with right now. I'm not naturally a scheduler. I don't like routine, or doing anything for more than a few days in a row. So... for me to be writing all these tips is kind of a BIG DEAL. 😬 (I'm right in the thick of learning this, guys.) I'm working diligently on these routines because I know that if the basics of life are on auto-pilot, then I will have brain space to think about the stuff that REALLY matters. The stuff like my...

How Personality Typing has helped my Habits.

Hello friend! I'm back... and still writing about Habits. 😆 Because... this is what I've been thinking on, struggling with, and working on for awhile now. And, MAN, do I need all the help I can get! In ALL the personality tests, I ALWAYS score for the ones that include "Hates routines and monotony" and "Just wants to have fun." 😬 So, I'm gonna share what I've been learning about personality types and habits! First off, I absolutely LOVE the Meyer's Briggs and Enneagram personality typing systems. Meyer's Briggs is very relationship-based, and to be honest, it honestly completely changed Alex and...
