I feel grateful to have a career that allows me to work with people of all ages. They've seen it all and help me learn without repeating the same mistakes. Above all, they challenge me to try new things, to date, to experience life, to continue expanding my knowledge, and to grow. I've learned that you cannot change all the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around. Life goes by too quickly to spend your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Be selective. Be picky. Be ok with saying no to those who don't make you laugh or feel special. I hope you never compromise your self worth for the sake of keeping others in your life. You'll lose a lot of by having standards, but that's ok. A smaller circle....a greater you.

One of the most challenging things I do every day in my career is overcoming fears. For many, many, many years, I struggled with public speaking and stage fright. It wasn't until my office Team leader asked me to speak at several meetings that I realized all my fear was limiting me from being able to help others.
I have no problem helping people over the computer or on the phone or through my writing as I always have, but when I began to teach classes at my office, I realized the power our mindsets can have in our lives every day. You can overcome anything you want in your life...it's just a matter of deciding that you're going to. I still get nervous, but I try to remember that I am not perfect and no one expects me to be. Your life begins at the end of your comfort zone, so do something that scares you. Make a goal, set your mind to it, and don't stop till you achieve it. You are worthy of all your wildest dreams.

"Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change."
BOLD in full effect today.

"The comeback is always stronger
than the setback."
I genuinely believe that before things become great, they fall apart. We feel defeated, lost, confused and unable to move forward. It is in these moments that our strength is tested most. It is in these moments that we are reminded how strong we are. Above all, it is in these moments we gain our wings. So, let go of all you think you have to be and remember who YOU ARE. You're badass & this is only the beginning. #getitgirl

This past weekend my best friend and I spontaneously explored several trails in L.A. Knowing me, I try to learn something new about myself, others or my surrounding when doing something. It's just how I've always been. Today, I realized how powerful our minds can be. We can literally trick ourselves into doing things or to not do things...simply by listening to our minds. Whether it is a diet, telling ourselves we're worthy of more than how someone is treating us, or conquering a mountain (literally), we can do whatever we set our minds to. Know you're worthy of receiving whatever you desire then set your mind to achieve it. Believe in yourself and you're half way there. Then there is truly no room for failure. You're worth it.

"You should really give a fuck. You really should.
But only about things that set your soul on fire. Save your fucks for magical shit."
Life's a little too short to lose sleep on the insignificant matters in life. Whenever I find myself caring a little too much about things out of my control, I remember that all I can do is make sure I'm a good person (in my eyes). Show up, be present and give it all you've got. You can't make everyone happy and not everyone's drama is worthy of your time. Choose wisely. There are people out there with way more serious problems to be allowing small matters that won't matter a year from now to stop you from reaching your greatest potential. Keep doing you, babe. It was never about you anyway. #prayforthem #iprayforyou #lifequotes

Everyone "starts" somewhere and remember that no one is you, and THAT is your power. Stay humble as ever, but know your value and what you bring to the table... in work, life and your relationships. Always improve yourself, continue learning and never settle for mediocre. "The dream is free, the hustle is sold separately." Happy Thursday.

"Don't try to rush things that need time to grow."
One of the most challenging things we have to "accept" is when things don't happen right away. More frustrating is when we know we've worked hard to deserve them. I truly believe that things come to you not when you've earned them, but when you're ready for them. Nothing is given or happens to you when you're unable to take it on- even if at times things feel like they're "too much." Today, I want you to be kind to yourself and write a list of things you HAVE accomplished. Wow! What a list. It's so easy to forget our accomplishments when we're still waiting on other things to mend. Just know that what's meant to be yours will never leave sight of you unless you lose sight of it. Know what you want and work towards it- whether it's to become a Dr, write a book, find a great husband or wife, start a rescue, etc. I believe in you and your destiny...so should you.

"It's all connected. Your gifts, your cicrcumstance, your purspose, your imperfections; your journey, your destiny. It's molding you, embrace it."
I genuinely believe that nothing is accidental. I believe that some things fall apart so better things can come together. I believe that it's difficult to stay optimistic when it feels like everything around you is crumbling, but I believe there's a lesson behind everything that happens. I've found the beauty of realizing that nothing is happening to me, rather for me- the good and the bad. All that happens in our lives molds us into people we are destined to become, down the line. Sometimes they happen quick and we become the person we were meant to be quickly and other times, like a flower- we need lots of time and water to flourish. It might not make sense now or maybe even tomorrow, but one day...you'll remember what you read and will agree, that everything was working for you. Promise.

If you're close to me, you already know what my friends know- that I hate dating. I've always thought it to be so awkward. When I'm asked to dinner, I tell them that I'd rather go for a walk. I feel like there's often too much pressure on dates and that's what drives me away from them. I've learned several things from opening up to dating that I'll share with you here. 1. It's really not that big of a deal. After a date, I always laugh at myself for building it up more than it was. 2. You can't win if you don't try. As awkward as dating is, you won't know what's out there until you try. 3. What you think you want isn't always what you believe to be. Dating has taught me a huge lesson- that this idolized image in my mind of what I "want" isn't always pretty in reality. The things I've dismissed have somehow become more intriguing. Life is all about finding you and creating a lifestyle that allows you to be your most authentic self. It's not about changing to accommodate others, but finding something that molds with you and inspires you to grow. You can't win home run if you're not willing to come up to bat. For my friends who are having trouble dating again, just know that it's not that bad, have fun with it, don't put too much pressure on yourself, worry about the future a little later and most importantly, there's no right time to date. You just have to do it and it you'd be surprised who you find.
