How to fight your Inner Critic.

Hey friend... do you have negative words that like to float around in your brain?  I know I sure do! 😒 I've been there SO often: I think about that big dream that I've hoped and wished for (like losing weight, or growing this community) and immediately hear: "I could never do that." "I've failed at this before..." "What's the point?" "It hasn't worked so far." Man... you too? 😩   Yeah, I think we're all there fairly often. We eat dessert on the diet, we get discouraged and skip the gym, we choose to ignore the daily tasks that will get us...

How to change your Mindset.

How to change your Mindset.

The thoughts we think are SO important. They can literally shape the way we live our lives.  (Wanna learn more about how your brain works? Click here to learn 3 Reasons why your Mindset is SO Important!) It's really easy to let our thoughts run wild. For the longest time, I didn't really think about it - I just thought that the things that ran through my mind were stuck there, until they magically disappeared. But the bad ones would never seem to leave. The ones that told me that I'm not good enough. That I'm not skinny enough. That...

3 Reasons why your Mindset is SO Important.

Last week, I walked in front of the mirror and thought "Yuck. Why can't I lose weight faster?" Now. I'm not substantially overweight. I work out VERY regularly, and try to make fairly healthy food choices. But my MINDSET, you guys... that's something I can't just exercise away. (or... can I?... 😬) Having a good mindset is SO important. It is SO. SOO. IMPORTANT!  Why am I yelling at you? 😆 This brings us to Reason #1: Because of the way our brains work. They have these little things inside them called "neurons". And every time we think a thought,...

What to do when life needs a "Reboot".

The start to this week was ROUGH, y'all. I'm learning that Mondays are needed to reset after a busy weekend. (Saturdays are work days for both Alex & I, and I'm often helping at our church on Sunday mornings, as well! 😊) So a bit of extra "weekend" is a much-needed thing for this entreprenuer/mama/homekeeper/wife. 😬 This Monday and Tuesday, however... they were EXTRA.
