Seven Ways to Spring Clean Your Life

Spring Clean

Spring is near! And while most people are clearing their houses of clutter, I think it’s a good idea to clear our lives of clutter. There are everyday things that take up space in our lives that are unnecessary. So, I thought of a few ways we can Spring clean our life. These changes aren’t grand, but they will help you to eliminate some clutter and become more in charge of your time, space, and coins. You don’t have to do everything on this list, but just by doing a few your Spring, and hopefully the rest of year, will be a bit more organized and productive.

Motivational Quotes When You Need a Little Push

Motivational Quotes

We all need a little push sometimes. And lately, I’ve needed a big push. I’m not sure what’s going on with me. Actually, I do. Starting the new year sick really threw me off my game, and I’ve been playing catch up since. I love order and schedules, so not really being on a schedule has really been difficult for me. And playing catch up is exhausting and overwhelming. When trying to get back on track, there are few ways I pump myself up to get back on track, reading or listening to a self-development/business podcast is usually my go-to. But sometimes I come across motivational quotes that get me all the way together. So, I wanted to share with you all a few motivational quotes by some amazing Black women (it is Black History Month after all) that will get you back on track and ready to take over the world.

How I’m Practicing Self-Love in 2018

self love

With February being the month of love, I thought I would talk about the ways I’m practicing self-love in 2018. 2017 was a busy year for me, so I neglected myself a bit. This year I’m focused on taking more time for myself, being gentle with me and getting closer to my goals. How I practice self-love is in direct response to how I want to feel at the end of the year. Loved. Healthy. Accomplished.

So, here are the ways I’m practicing self-love this year. It is not enough for me to say I love myself. I need to also show myself that I am important and loved.

5 PRODUCTIVITY APPS YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD NOW

Productivity Apps

Happy Monday!

I thought I would share a few apps I use to keep me on track. I’m not an app junky, but I do love a good app that helps me reach my goals and get things done. You may notice that my list doesn’t involve any to do list or task apps. I’ve tried everything from Evernote to Trello, but I didn’t stick with any of them too long. If you all have suggestions, please let me know. Until I find the right one, I’ll be a pen and paper type girl.

Enough of the rambling. Here are 5 productivity apps that I use and love. All the apps listed can be founded on iTunes and, hopefully, the Google Play store.

Guard Your Vision

Guard Your Vision

Your vision is your vision alone! When we begin to talk to about our visions, we open them up to scrutiny. Just imagine you get a great ideal and share it with a friend or a family member and instead of being met with enthusiasm you are met with discouragement. That can be crushing. And just like that, you find yourself second guessing if you should pursue this dream because what they are saying makes sense. We are especially vulnerable in the beginning when we aren’t even sure what we should be doing.

So here is a list of places where you can work remotely and get things done, nearly all are free.

Balancing Life, Blogging and Business

Motherhood Business

In October, I decided to get a jump start on my 2018 goals. I wanted to balance motherhood, being a wife, my blog and my Etsy shop a lot better. I didn’t want for life to happen (You know, Doctor’s appointments, sick kids, meetings, laundry) and I not get any work done. I knew that I had time in my schedule I just had to figure out how to best utilize it.  I implemented 3 things into my routine in October to help make sure I am making the most of my time and working towards my business and blogging goals.  Although I talk about balancing motherhood and business, these tips would work fine with anyone trying to find time to work on their goals.

What to do Before You Create Your Vision Board + Design Freebie

Vision Board

December is here! And I’m sure tons of people are beginning to map out their goals and plans for 2018. One way people get ready for the New Year is by creating a vision board.

It’s no surprise that I love this time of year and goal setting. But let me be honest, I have never created a vision board. I’ve always been a pen to paper type girl. And the only reason I never made one is….because I have no place to hang it. Sad, right? But this year I’ve decided to make a few small ones to put in my planner binder that I will see every day.  

While I haven’t created a vision board, I am approaching my vision board a lot like I approach goal setting.   I know there are tons of cute pictures on the internet and magazines, but they may not be what I envision for my 2018.  A vision board is nothing more than our goals and dreams in visual form. So, just like our goals and dreams, vision boards don’t work unless we do. I don’t want to just cut out images, I want to be clear on what I want in life. In order to be strategic and thoughtful in creating my vision board, I am sitting down and writing out my vision for the new year.  So, here are 4 things I’m planning to do before I create my vision board.
