If It Doesn’t Serve You, Let It Go

Does anyone else have the tendency to hold on to things longer than they should? 🙋🏻 That’s definitely me. Somewhere along the way, I developed this warped “once you start something you have to finish it” mentality that has had me holding onto things way longer than I should be. That has included: Books Workout…

One Word for 2019

I’m not a resolution person. Sure, I set goals (I do that all year) and the New Year is a great time to review and look at those goals. But for me, the new year is the time I set an intention for the upcoming year. It can be an area I want to grow…

End of the Year Review: 2018

At the beginning of 2018, I chose one word to focus on and grow in throughout 2018. This was the first year I chose only one word instead of three for the whole year so I was curious to see how that played out for me and my own personal growth. Before I dive too…

One Word for 2018

For the past few years, I’ve been choosing three words to guide my year instead of New Years Resolutions. As much as I love goals and I think the start of a new year can be a great time to reflect on your life, New Years Resolutions can often seem a little empty to me….

End of the Year Review: 2016

How I Stay Organized: The Passion Planner

I’m a little old school when it comes to my planner. I’ve tried the calendar on my phone and many different apps for my calendar and to-do lists, but I always fall back to good old fashioned paper. The Passion Planner is more than just a calendar. It’s a tool to help you identify your…

End of the Year Review: 2015

At the beginning of the year, I chose three words to grow in and help guide me throughout 2015: blossom, love, and fearless. It’s been a long year and a lot has happened. For a few of my highlight, I… Started freelancing. Joined a soccer team. Made many new friends and deepened old relationships. Traveled locally…

My Bucket List

A few years ago, a friend and I made bucket lists with everything we could think of that we wanted to do in our life. That original piece of paper is now long gone, but I’ve kept track of my list with the things I’d someday like to do! ! Some items are big (and highly…

Intentional Habit Change

Since the New Year, I’ve been making an intentional effort to create healthier lifestyle habits (and no, none of them have been New Year Resolutions). The most valuable thing I’ve learned through this process is simple: start small. I have big goals (like eat healthier and get in better shape) that can seem overwhelming –so overwhelming that…
