I am a huge fan of books that promote personal growth. I love reading little bits of wisdom concerning living life in the best way possible and books regarding personal growth have such a motivational nature to them. It’s hard to finish reading one and not have new ideas prancing around in your mind about things to try doing differently in your life and what greater gift can a book give than to enrich your life with such wisdom?

Can we just take a second to appreciate the beauty we are about to witness in the upcoming month? I love winter but I’m just about ready for it to fade away. I don’t know if it’s because Texas had two snow days this year or if it’s simply the fact that my internal clock is off but either way, I’m ready for the first day of spring to make its arrival!
I thought we could do some “Spring planning” if you will to get a head start on the upcoming month! If you haven’t figured out your bullet journal pages for the next month or you’re just curious as to how the whole bullet journal thing works from month to month, you’ve come to the right place! (; Continue reading “Plan With Me: March 2018 Bullet Journal”
This year one of my goals was to do a daily devotional every morning. I’ve been doing this consistently every morning since January first and I can’t lie, it didn’t take long before I started to wonder how efficient my devotional time actually was. Reading one little scripture and saying a quick two sentenced prayer after each devotional paragraph left me feeling like I was kind of rushing my quiet time. Luckily though, i’ve figured out a few ways to better incorporate a deeper bible study into my morning routine and I thought I’d share them with you!
Seeing as how we are nearing the end of the first month of the new year, I’ve been thinking a lot about keeping up the positive “new me” momentum. It’s so much easier to maintain that positive mentality during the last few weeks of December and the first few weeks of January but I think once we’re all settled into the new year, that drive and motivation once dedicated to adopting the new ___(fill in the blank)___ declines. In order to counteract this, I try to focus on a new practice every month. Continue reading “4 Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life”
If you set a goal for 2018, and you’ve already broken it within the first week p l e a s e don’t trash that goal. I already see the “Welp! I can always try for 2019!” attitude spreading around like a wildfire and it’s just sad. Unfortunately, we aren’t guaranteed “next year” and too often we take the year we are given for granted. Who said that a new year can only begin on January 1st? The year is 365 days long… it’s a cycle. Once those 365 days are up, it’s a new year. Who said you can’t pick one of those days to start your own 365 day cycle?
Now, why am I saying this? Continue reading “2018 Goals & Intentions “
Most people advocate vision boards because of something called the “Law of attraction”. I personally am not a big fan of this law for two reasons: The first being that God’s will is inevitable even in spite of my own (1 Thessalonians 5:18 & Jeremiah 29:11). The second reason is that all good things come from God (James 1:17). I personally cannot accredit the universe for all the great things Jesus does and is doing not just in my life but in the lives of others!
WITH THAT BEING SAID…
If you are following me on Instagram, you might have seen my last instagram story was essentially a farewell to social media. I am a huge advocate of taking frequent social media breaks just to keep its usage at a healthy level and I took a total of 0 breaks in 2017. That is… until I decided to take the month of December off of every kind of social media platform. Including the blog.
I needed a bit of mental solitude to place all of my focus on being present and in the moment, as I feel I often need in order to maintain a certain level of self-care (and sometimes sanity ha ha). Don’t we all though?
As all of my social media breaks have proven to be, the break was much-needed and much enjoyed! Upon re-entering the social media/blogging realm (world… cyberspace?..), I thought I would bring a little snapshot of my camera roll just to show you guys where I’ve been and what this December contained for me!
