Wedding Bells

Posted on August 29, 2017 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)


My best friend since the sixth grade, @glamifer is getting married soon. I've always learned the best life lessons from those around me and she is one of those people I have learned a lot from. When I was in a difficult chapter of my life, she kept me going by encouraging me to try new things- outside of my comfort zone. We all need a best friend like that- who not only wants the best for you, but challenges you to grow. In honor of her officially become a Mrs soon, I wanted to share something I've learned from her experience in the field of love. One thing I have always admired about her is her ability to carry her worth, dignity and value with pride that others feel it, too. She's always had guys admire her and it's not just because she's gorgeous- but she's humbly confident. She knows what she brings to the table and isn't afraid to remind others too. There's absolutely nothing wrong with knowing your worth, holding your head high, and being confident in yourself. There are a lot of people who will be there to bash you, so make sure you love yourself, first. She found love where she least likely expected it, but took the bull by the horns when she did. "Sometimes love comes around and it knocks you down..."

Pop of Color

A few years back, I never wore color. Mostly because I didn't want to stand out from others in a room. I felt like I could blend in more with solid colors, such as black. In more recent years, I've noticed that I tend to pick clothing now that has designs, color, and print. We don't always notice change in ourselves until others notice it, but pictures are a fun way for me to realize how much I've changed. To me, life is all about growth and becoming new versions of ourselves. If we're not evolving, we're not growing. It can be something as small as you adding color to your attire or taking the time to appreciate your features, like your hair, skin, and nails. We aren't taught how to love ourselves and we're often shamed for doing so. It's considered to cocky, conceited, or arrogant. Why can't we just be people who are comfortable in their skin? Why does it have to be labeled? In a day and age where so many are judging our lives behind a screen, why don't we be the decision maker of what we want to be perceived as? People will always judge you, perceive you, and believe they know you for what you show on social media...but trust me, I know there's more to you, too. Go on and love yourself, darling. You're gold. 

Demons.

One thing that allows my dog and I to connect is exploring together. We both deal with anxiety time to time and I've found that being surrounded by nature allows us to escape the chaos for a bit. Earlier today, a friend expressed the space she's in currently after an unexpected breakup. I told her that what has been helping me is remembering that feelings are like clouds. They never stay in the same place and if they do, it's not for a long. Eventually, they'll pass. If we accept our feelings, current situation and worries for what they are rather than what we wish them to be...our minds may feel more at ease. The truth of the matter is that if we sat in front of a busy street and pretended that cars driving by were the thoughts that play in our head and we had to watch each one as it passed by....can you imagine how crazy we'd feel? That's what anxiety can do to a person- feeling the need to control and understand every thought in our brain. Whatever you're going through today, I want you to know you'll be ok. Nothing lasts forever and what makes you beautiful is that you wake up every morning to fight the same demons that left you so tired the night before. If that's not bravery, I don't know what is. Head up, princess. You're going to be okay.

Who you work with matters.

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. 

Live authentically

Find light at the end of the tunnel. ✨ My hope for you is that you never feel alone and when your struggles feel heavy on your shoulders, you know someone out there believes in you. Don't let your current feelings, situation, circumstance, or worries break you. Let them be the driving force that gets you from point A to B. Crawl if you must, but please don't ever give up on your greater goals because they feel impossible now. Sometimes that means changing who we thought our greater goals were going to be with. Sometimes it means bravely moving forward without an idea of what's to come. I used to fear the unknown, what hadn't happened yet...the future. It took good things unexpectedly happening for me to realize that the universe wants good for us. The universe wants us to reach happiness, our goals, our destiny. However, to reach it, you must find gratitude amongst the present..and that means being grateful for things even when they feel terrible. If you're barely able to drag your feet today and the weight feels like it's on your shoulders, I am here. Message me. You're going to be ok.

French fries

Posted on August 7, 2017 at 3:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I remember speaking with a friend several years ago who was dealing with a breakup. She told me, “I gave him my fries when he finished his and was still hungry.” She couldn’t understand for the life of her how someone she cared so deeply for could be so careless with her heart. Despite how much he’d hurt her, she still cared for his wellbeing and happiness. I told her that sometimes no matter the neglect, sadness, and hurt some cause us- some of us will always care. It’s just who we are and what makes us unique. Why would you ever want to change that about you? Your heart, it's rare. It's beautiful. Not everyone is capable of having those kind of feelings...so own them. Be proud of them. Those people, the ones who wear their hearts on their sleeves are the ones I cherish. Because even though they don’t have to, they CARE to wish you well. The truth is, sometimes you have to meet those kind of people so that when you meet the ones with a heart of gold you can differentiate the two. I guess that’s what life is all about- taking chances and having faith in something greater. If there’s anything I have learned in my life that I feel has value for every person is to know what you bring to the table. Know what you can offer someone. Know these things so you never lose yourself to someone who treats you like you’re ordinary. You’re exquisite. Feel it. Believe it. Know it. And no matter what, never, ever lose yourself to someone who doesn't see it. Life is way too short to leave the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket...so leave it to fries to make you happy. ���� #sundays

 



Wasted time.

"Never let a confused man waste your time,

love or energy."


Not everyone will value your time, energy, space, and most of all...love. ���� Make sure whoever comes to you doesn't take the best parts of you when

they leave. You're worthy of something real, something true. It's ok to have standards to who's worthy of you.

Get lost only to be found.

"There are days I go through where feeling lost did not feel like I was losing myself, sometimes it feels like freedom."



Sometimes the only way to find yourself is to get extremely lost. A follower recently asked me how I found myself and how to do it. The funny thing is, no one teaches us that. We are not told how we will overcome the chaos, how we will get through the storm or how the fire we walk away from makes us. All we are always told is that everything happens for a reason. Well, why do heart breaks and friends hurt us? Why do we lose people who we love dearly and family? I don't think things always happen for a reason. I think it's a matter of knowing that some things just happen. Simply knowing, "It is what it is." It doesn't mean you have to accept the feelings that come with circumstances though. You're allowed to grow out of the pain. You're allowed to let it make you a better or just a different person. Your current situation doesn't have to be your last. Just know that you hold the pen to your story and that's the only person that gets to decide how you'll feel chapter to chapter. Happiness, it's a c

’ve always loved writing and knew it was something I’d want to do forever…so I majored in Journalism. ✏️ Upon graduating, I interned at a prestigious real estate magazine helping local top agents brand their business, write on behalf of them, and manage their social media sites. Soon after, I was offered a full-time position but kindly declined. I knew I wanted to help people, but didn’t see it possible sitting behind a desk all day. Ironically, my cousin’s friend was looking for someone to work as the Director of First Impressions at, Keller Williams Palos Verdes.


I decided to apply and got the job the same day. ���� During this time, I worked closely as the office Team Leader’s assistant and would listen in when agents would negotiate deals. I realized that I could fulfill my desire to help people, write, and spend more time with Bubba in this career.

It's a lot of work and sometimes I feel like I am running in every direction at once, but I took a chance and I am proud of who I've become. I genuinely believe that we cannot compare our journey with others. What’s for you will always be yours and what isn’t, may never be. Eventually, things come full circle and you realize why smaller things had to happen for greater things to occur. So, work hard and don’t be afraid to take chances. If you don’t build your own dreams, someone else will hire you to build theirs. This morning, I helped a stranger in London find a solution to her relationship problems and this is all because I am still able to write on my personal blog, Life Moves On.

I have so many more goals I want to accomplish and that’s what makes it so fun. So, set goals and make them big enough that you can't achieve it until you grow into the person who can. #FBF #trusttheprocess

Overcoming fears through our mindset.

Posted on August 1, 2017 at 4:05 PM Comments comments (0)


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.
