Happy Monday peeps! I was reading LeAnne and Steve Ford’s book Work in Progress this past week, and Chapter 4 starts out with this quote from Dolly, and I thought “What a great way to think!” (Oddly enough I recently visited Dollywood for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and then watched the … Continue reading Do It On Purpose
It’s the first Monday of 2020, friends! Can you believe it? One of my resolutions for the new year is to get back to blogging regularly, which includes starting back up with my weekly Monday Motivation posts. So, today I’m kicking it off with the motivational thought “You are never alone...” which I got from … Continue reading You’re Never Alone
Time for another change... it’s crazy to think just how quickly the days go by. This time last year, I was in a low, low spot... searching for work in my field, for something new, for a real purpose... and now here I am a year later and find myself taking on changes once again, … Continue reading A Change of Seasons
Where is my worth? I don't think we typically ask that question. We just unknowingly supply whatever answer seems to work for the moment. Our job, our bank account, our level of education, our following on social media, our salary... But is that really all we are? Just a title, a monetary figure, a piece … Continue reading Where’s Your Worth?

Hi peeps! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! This post is the first of a “series” coming this month that are all about my first year of blogging. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since I started this online space of mine. I’ve grown and learned so much both about blogging … Continue reading The First Year: Why I Blog About What I Blog About
What do you think about this concept: instead of worrying so much about pleasing everyone around us and proving our worth to others, why don’t we use that energy to work on ourselves?
And I’ll follow that up with a second question: how is your worth defined? In today’s society we spend so much time searching for validation from others. We are focused on others opinions and what we can use to prove that we are liked whether that the number of followers we have, the likes on a post, our impression rate, etc. But what are we doing to prove our worth to and encourage ourselves?
Anybody else love the book/movie The Help? It’s one of my favorites, and I love this quote. It holds so much motivation and inspiration, and I believe we should follow Aibileen’s example by entailing this in our children and those whom we have the ability to influence. While, our ideas and opinions may differ, we are … Continue reading “You Is…”
Happy Monday! It’s hard to believe that we are already in the month of July. For this week’s #MondayMotivation post, I wanted to do something a bit more patriotic since the 4th of July is only two days away, and our sermon at church yesterday gave me some inspiration. Our pastor preached out of Galatians … Continue reading Freedom is a State of Mind
Happy Monday! Let’s start this week off right with some #MondayMotivation! First of all, yes, this is the quote from the live-action Cinderella movie, but it’s such a good one. Everywhere we look there are people being put down or discouraged from going after their dreams, but (to throw another quote in) “a dream is … Continue reading Courage & Kindness
