So Worth Loving

If you haven’t tried yoga, this may be a great time to start! I actually did this exact yoga sequence this morning! 

No matter if it’s morning, evening, or midnight snack time, doing a simple yoga exercise like this will help you release any stress or woe as well as find your center.

And let’s get real, we would rather see your center than any exterior mask that’s hiding it. You’re so worth loving and so you’re definitely worth getting to know your wonderful body.

Enjoy yoga with Adriene! 

Imperfectly Perfect

Walking along the beach alone this morning, I found myself drawn to the shells. Not the perfect ones but the ones that have been discarded, apparently not good enough for someone’s shelf. As I picked up one particle bit of shell I stared at it, and rolled it around in my hand. The more I looked at it, the more it reminded me of…well, me. Cracked with lines and worn down from the ocean, but somehow through the cracks, beauty is exposed.

Perfect in it’s imperfections,

just like me.

The Spring cleaning season must be upon us! I’m not sure what struck me but I have been working down in the basement a lot lately cleaning and trying to figure out what exactly we all have. Would you believe there are still pieces of my childhood down there? Toys even! While some of the things are worth keeping, the majority of it needs to go. Most of the things down there never see the light of day anymore. They have served their purpose and are only cluttering up the basement. 
Spring cleaning is great for our homes but it can also refresh our ways of thinking and how we see and treat ourselves. Have you ever taken inventory on yourself and the pieces of your life that do not need to be there? Now’s the perfect time if you haven’t! Bring on the Spring Cleaning: Personal Mode.
Maybe you have things in your life that have yet to see the light of day- the things that eat away at you every single day inside but are never able to make it past your mouth. The secrets. Maybe there are certain attitudes you carry around that could use a little (or a lot of) tweaking. Maybe feelings such as unworthiness, shame, and worthlessness are constantly on your mind. Bad habits? Unhealthy relationships? Insecurities? This list could go on and on… whether it’s filled with serious things that need to change or more simple things to work on over time. Whatever it is, I would encourage you to get at it, get inside your heart and mind, and clean it out! Sometimes the things we let ourselves believe and do can be so poisonous to us. There is no reason why we should be letting ourselves live in that poison and destroy our quality of life. 
I know I have a lot of time that needs to be spent in the Personal Mode of spring cleaning this season and I hope that you will spend some time there as well. Personally, I know I can’t wait to let go of some of my poison and get it out of my life! It’s not going to be easy, but it will definitely be worth it.
Happy Spring everyone!

"remind yourself of the beauty the future holds and the beauty within yourself"
Minty Fresh Future
Mint is a must have color this spring! Jeans, shoes, shirts! It’s everywhere! Personally, I love it, not only for the cutesy vibe it gives off, but also for the meaning it has to me.  When I see the color mint I think- fresh, clean, & beautiful. It isn’t over powering, but instead subtle, calm, and pretty.   Much like my future- fresh, clean, and beautiful.  I have all the opportunity in the world and my mistakes aren’t holding me back or overpowering me.  It took me a while to realize that the place I am right now is exactly where I need to be.  My past mistakes, failures, and issues have built me into the person I am today.  I know that I have a clean, fresh, beautiful future ahead of me- no matter what mess I have made in the past. So instead of grabbing a pair of regular jean shorts this summer, grab a mint pair and remind yourself of the beauty the future holds and the beauty within yourself.  And of course, never forget that you are So Worth Loving :)
