A quick personal story on how a small mindset shift changed my entire life!

In early 2013, I found myself at the climax of what had been an unprecedented period of negativity in my life. For five long years, I had been a shadow of my former self. The confident, bubbly, enthusiastic woman that I prided myself as being had faded away as if she was never anything other than a figment of my imagination.

A good bit of my struggle stemmed from a series of huge life changes I experienced over a very short period of time which included getting married, moving away to a new city/state, changing careers, and becoming a mother for the first time.

My stress and anxiety levels were at an all-time high and I didn’t recognize myself anymore or like the person that I was becoming.

By mid-2013…

I begin to read more personal growth articles and personal development books. It was through accessing these amazing resources and that I slowly began to realize the true power of my mindset.

I realized for the first time that my happiness started from within and that my thoughts had a huge influence on my reality.

By mid-2015…

I published a short book to share my struggle as a 30 something woman trying to navigate marriage, motherhood, career changes, and all the curveballs life throws at you.

In late 2016…

I started this blog to begin sharing tips to help inspire other women to work on their own personal growth.

In summer 2017…

I co-published a self-love workbook and videos series to help women take actionable steps to make themselves a priority instead of always being last on their own list.

I made it my daily mission to live my life with a more optimistic mindset with the intention of creating a better me.

Adopting a more positive mindset is not about trying to live a perfect life or never allowing yourself to feel negativity or pain. Those emotions are a part of life and sometimes it is necessary to embrace them in order to change.

Instead, choosing to be more positive is more about me recognizing that positivity brings more positivity and invites more happiness into my life. I want the same for you.

I heard a saying once, “We’re all just walking each other home at the end of the night.” The personal stories, tools, and resources shared on this website are my way of grabbing your hand and walking you home sister.
