Love What You Do

April 1st marks one year that I gave notice to my corporate type job and April 15th signifies my last day at it.  I worked this job for 6 years and while I am very grateful for many aspects of it, I have not been happier since leaving it.

May marks 2 years of owning my own business and this is what I left my last job for; I took one of those leaps of faith we often hear of others doing.  I left the security of a set amount of hours to in turn receive a set amount of pay, vacation and sick time, very nice benefits, and while I understand the value in those components of adulthood, I haven't missed it once.
I wake up every day happy and eager to begin tasks and with a fiery passion for the work I put my name on.  My business is growing and consistent and I feel like the decade worth of work I put in throughout my whole 20s led me to this point.  It's like it was all meant to get here.

There are scary moments and trying times yes, yet I honest to God have not regretted my choice to become a full time entrepreneur once.  Even when brief glimpses of doubt appear, I quickly snap into the moment and recognize how grateful I am.  It is beyond refreshing to wake up excited to start the day's work.

I hope to keep growing both as a person and as a business.  I hope I never stop learning and thriving for my next goal.  I've said since providing my resignation to my last job with one hand raised above the other: "I'm scared to this level but I'm enthusiastic to this level and as long as enthusiasm is above fear on the barometer I'm good."  I still stand by this.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T. While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”. Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration: Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better. Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See w

Then that night a fabulous scarecrow and her goblin guy... Throwing back the Halloween love full force. Hey girl!: I love this holiday!!!!!! As for one specific memory, I do recall going trick
