After a fight

Posted on January 8, 2018 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

"Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. Who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight."


You’re deserving of the most delicious kind of love there is. The nurturing kind. The uplifting, loving, hopeless kind. The sort of love that keeps you wanting more, yet somehow brings you enough fulfillment. It’s not about finding the perfect person. Its also not about finding someone to complete you. You are complete alone. It’s about finding the person that makes your days sweeter, brightens your smile when you receive their texts, and reminds you how damn deserving you are of this amazing kind of love.

Unplug

"Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes...including you."


It’s always been in my nature to work, work, work. I get it from my parents. However, I also love my downtime -it’s how and where I refuel my drive, passion, and creativity. We all need a place or thing that gives that to us and I don’t think a person should be it. Find something you love like walking, laying in the park, doing a puzzle, hiking, etc. Whatever it is, build your schedule around it. That was the best advice a doctor once gave me. We put things like taking care of ourselves after we’ve build our busy schedules like getting a massage, facial, etc. The truth is- these are the important, take care of yourself activities that will ignite your fire again. Rest, when you need to. Today, I’m taking an off day and taking my dogs hiking. It’s important for me to spend time with them and more importantly, to feel at one with nature. It’s where I feel inspired to write for you. This year, I ask you to do more kind things for yourself. Watch how much you’ll glow with a little more rest.

Life Motto

Posted on January 8, 2018 at 5:15 PM Comments comments (0)

"I care more about my relationship with my inner being than anything else. If I'm not in alignment with myself, I have nothing to offer anyone."


My life motto is simple. “I’ll take care of me for you if you take care of you for me.” Supporting, encouraging, and rooting for your spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend should be a given. However, it is not your job to do things for them. You have a lot to take care of on your own-#1 being your mental health. No one can give you enough love, fulfillment, or confidence until you feel it for yourself first. When you do, you learn to distinguish the difference between feelings and your thoughts. Don’t let your feelings ever control your thoughts, mind, or have the power to break you. Why? Feelings are always temporary. Your mindset is not.

Pick yourself up

"Learning to pick yourself up after going through shit is

such an important thing that no one ever teaches you."


Better yet, being your own hero. You don’t need to wait for Prince Charming, a knight in shining armor, or a hero. Pick your beautiful self up, straighten your crown, and remember your worth.

Same heart.

JUST REMEMBER NOT EVERYONE HAS

THE SAME HEART AS YOU.

This lesson was probably one of the hardest to learn. Most likely because of my ego, pride, and belief that there is good in everyone. It was a hard pill to swallow, to learn that just because you wouldn’t do something to do someone, it didn’t mean others wouldn’t do the same. My takeaway from this is that you shouldn’t stop yourself from being a great person, caring, and especially thinking of others because very seldom do. However, realize that sometimes as difficult as it may sound or believe to be true, it had nothing to do with you. People do a lot of things for their own good before they stop to think how it’ll effect those around them. When you realize this, you release anger, frustration, and sadness. It’s a healthy thing to do.

Keep Shining

2017 was all kinds of wonderful. One of the greatest lessons I learned was that everything in life is like a boomerang.

What you put out there, good or bad, the energy, the attitude, the vibes...eventually comes back to you. Focus on your own lane. Work on becoming better than you were yesterday and remain unbothered by people’s wrongdoings. Be your own competition. Don’t get distracted by what others have in their lives. We always want what someone else has. Be grateful. Be centered. Be you. Do that, and I promise...you’re the one that will always win. Happy NYE, everyone! Stay safe & don’t ever let someone dim your light, simply because it’s shining in their eye.


“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” ✨ #nye

Go after the dream.

One of the best lessons I’m taking away from 2017 was learned from my cousin. Though initially her parents could not accept her relationship, she stuck by him, her beliefs, and her confidence in the relationship. I’ve learned if things matter to you, it doesn’t always matter what he or she thinks. At the end of the day, we are always responsible for our actions and how we feel. Everything that occurs is typically in result of a choice we once made. Put up a fight for what you love & never settle for less than butterflies. You deserve to live the life you’ve always imagined...however that looks to you. Don’t go into a career your parents want, don’t marry just because you feel you’re getting old. Never set limitations on yourself.

Since becoming

Posted on November 14, 2017 at 12:10 PM Comments comments (0)



Since becoming a Realtor, I’ve been challenged in many aspects of my life. I am often expected to do things outside of my comfort zone, but they’ve only bettered me. If there’s anything I’ve learned through these years in the industry, it’s that opportunity doesn’t knock twice. Procrastinating is the #1 deal breaker and there’s no better time than the now. If something or someone or going somewhere is important to you, make it a priority today. Never settle for the mediocre, always go above what is expected, and be the change you wish to see. I promise you, things will begin to fall into place, but you have to show up first. #realestate ��: @leeniephotography

Looking deeper within.

Bubba always reminds me that things don't always look like we think they will. Before getting him, I thought having a dog would be a breeze. I thought all dogs were going to be the same... feed them, walk them, let them sleep. Easy.

I quickly learned otherwise when I brought him home. He wasn't immediately affectionate. I needed to allow time to build a bond with him. He didn't immediately trust me. I needed to allow adventures together show him he could trust me to protect him.

He reminds me often that I cannot expect others to perceive life the way I do. Just because two people think, react, or feel differently about things does not mean they aren't right for one another or compatible. It simply means that it is up to us if we want to take the time to learn why they think differently.

Remember, your job is never to change people but to decide if what they offer, think, believe, want, and need is something you're ok with accepting into YOUR life. Ask yourself, is this difference between the way we think too great to keep us striving for greatness.

Pick your battles and remember there's more to life than meets the eyes. What do you feel inside?

Happy 4th Birthday, Bubba!

Four years ago, I was in a very different place than I am today. I was freshly single after a four year relationship and felt completely lost. I no longer knew who I was and also played the victim card. I was very vulnerable and whenever something occurred, I would ask, “Why me?” Not too long after, I came across a dog at a pet shop that I wanted soooo badly. She seemed like the perfect fit for me. After applying to rescue her and learning that I didn’t get her, I was crushed. Already feeling rejected, it was the last thing my heart could handle. I was learning an important lesson that I wouldn’t realize until a few months later and that is that she wasn’t my dog. Nope, a cute, silly, and troubled dog named Bubba was. I would meet him exactly a few weeks later and adopting him was so easy, it was effortless! Since that day and everyday after, my dog, also my best friend, has gifted me with life lesson after life lesson. He helped me find my passions again and gave me a healthy outlook on life. That is to trust that the right things come to you at the right time and never a day early. I have a quote written and placed in a frame right next to his photo in my room that I look at whenever I need a little reminding that things will make sense one day, even if they do not now. It’s a quote @createthelove shared before and it really resonated with me. It reads, “I hope you have the courage to live the kind of life that gets you to the place we are to meet, and don’t spend it loving someone else with half your heart, because you were afraid I wouldn’t show up.” Indiana Jones uncovered the cult of the mummy’s crypt, and so did I...four years ago! Happy 4th birthday to the best treasure I have found. I love being your Mummy. �� #whorescuedwho #indiannajones #halloween #lifelessonsfrommydogbubba #trust
