Mid-Week Motivation!

So, let’s talk about something really quick. Today, I’m questioning life a little bit, so it’s important to get this out there, as a reminder for me and anyone else who’s feeling the struggle.

Do you know that you can do anything? Really. Anything! Nothing is too difficult, if you set goals and progress a little every day. If you keep your focus on the ultimate outcome, it will happen for you. If it doesn’t seem like that’s the case right now, look back at all you’ve accomplished up until now! You can do it, because you already have!

I used to waste hours, days even, stuck thinking through the magnitude of life in my head. I psyched myself out, and as a result, took myself out of the game before I’d even started.

It was so frustrating, especially because I knew I was doing it, but I couldn’t stop myself from going down that rabbit hole again. “Where am I going to be in 5 years? Look at all these things other people are doing on social media! Am I ‘enough’?”

BUT, this is me right now, acknowledging those insecurities, acknowledging that fragile and debilitating frame of mind.

And, this is me letting go.

Realizing that frustration and constant thoughts of what I can’t change are barriers to smarter living. Realizing that I am all that stands between me and reaching my goal. And I choose to stand aside and cheer myself on. I choose to let positivity flow in every aspect of my life, and to feel it returned to me. It’s an amazing cycle. Just choose to be a part of it.

Are you ready to let go of the barriers setting you back?

Answer with positivity, and you’re on your way to becoming you, truly. ❤



What I Wish I Had Understood a Year Ago…

I feel like a new person. There’s been a shift in my soul, grounding me into the Earth and my center of being.



A year ago, I was afraid of the 7,000- mile step away from the world I’d carefully built in San Diego. I arrived in Taiwan feeling really unsettled and unsure of my decision.

But the thing is, I made the decision. I said yes even though I was afraid. And I’m thankful for that choice every single day.

Now, I understand that life is a series of choices. To go or to stay. To be complacent or to chase your dreams. To love yourself and to accept nothing less than the best.

There’s a truly distinct beauty in realizing this.

Now, I marvel in my body and the things it has allowed me to do.

Now, I rejoice in my independence and the peace I’ve found in trusting myself, in embracing confidence.

Now, I understand the amazing, binding power of friendship. The people in my life now are wonderful, hilarious, positive, motivating human beings. I am overjoyed to see them grow and achieve success in their own lives, as they wish me success in mine.

And now, I know that nothing is too far away (figuratively and literally). Taiwan was 14 hours on a plane, which was a little rough. But look at it this way: a little over half a day to travel to an island on the other side of the world?? That’s amazing! Really anywhere is reachable … just extend yourself to possibilities and see what can happen for you!

Do you find yourself thinking differently than you did last year? What are some things you understand more clearly now than you have in the past, or that you are just beginning to understand? Do you feel a shift in your being? Feel free to share your experiences in the comments!
