These days, everyone is an Instagram coach or motivational speaker. This world is saturated with people trying to help others in some way. Unfortunately, a lot of them end up saying the same thing – just in different, more creative ways. The latest thing I’ve noticed is them reminding us that “it’s OK to start over.” This saying is nothing new really. It just stuck … Continue reading It’s OK to Start Over
Hey Fam! Welcome back. August is a transformative month. It’s a time for shifting, resting, resetting and preparation for the new season to come. August is a time for renewing commits to routines and priorities. Staying the course on the things that matter. Have you felt the shift yet? Something in my nature just automatically starts adjusting for the next season. July was all about … Continue reading July Goals Recap & August Goals
Hey Fam! Welcome back. Due to the planning of my best friend’s wedding and a youth conference at my church (both in June), I’ve been a little absent. Nevertheless, those things are over (praise Jesus) and I’m back here to stay a while. Here’s the thing about starting and stopping – it is completely okay to do so. If you need a break, take a … Continue reading July Goals & Life Update
Growing up in the countryside of north Florida, I was a simple girl. School, chicken, Disney channel, my few select friends, church. I wasn’t thinking about my future much besides college. That was the goal. That was my purpose. Get good grades. Go to college for something that makes sense. However, once I got into college and saw a brand new world of people, places … Continue reading Though I Thought I Could Do it All, I Could Not Do it All Well
“Intentionality is key.” When I listed this as one of the life lessons I’ve learned before I turned 27, I don’t think I truly realized how important this lesson really was. Now that I’m almost 29 (OH MY GOSH, I’M ABOUT TO BE 29…….) Sorry. Now that I’m almost 29, this statement basically dictates 89.9% of the things I do, what I say and how … Continue reading What are your Intentions, Really?
Hi fam! I’ve dropped the ball on my goals tremendously since July. It was a downward spiral of one thing after the other. However, with only 59 days left in this year, I wanted to make sure that I created habits and a plan to be more effective going forward. Really. How many times have we heard someone say – “oh my gosh! The new … Continue reading Hey it’s November! Let’s talk goals.

Devastated. The only word that could be used to explain the feeling of what happened in the Florida panhandle last week. The sun is shining bright on Florida today and the capital city is nearing a place of normalcy. But last week, that was definitely not the case. Hurricane Michael violently slammed into my and surrounding communities; and now homes, businesses, churches and families are … Continue reading Quick Hello after Hurricane Michael

This year I beat myself up heavily about not keeping my word to someone on a project that literally would have taken me a week tops to complete. After speaking with them about it later and expressing my guilt, they were fine but I was left feeling like a disappointment. I vowed to do my best to never feel that again. Maybe you struggle with … Continue reading 5 Ways to Better Keep your Word
