The Feeling of Not Enough

Fact:  More than 80% of women: believe they’re not good enough; feel they don’t measure up in some way; are sure they fall short when it comes to their looks, success in business and relationships. 80% of us - GASP!  So let me ask you as question - not good enough...

Do What Feels Good, Not What Looks Good

"Do what feels good, not what looks good" (except when it comes to heels, when it comes to heels - always wear them) These were the words of encouragement and inspiration during a recent yoga class that I attended.  I don't even remember what pose it was that we were...

This morning's vibes are brought to you by waking up in a hotel with no children, a Starbucks (with way more sugar than the daily recommended serving) and a few hours casually browsing the aisles at Target.

I bet my Sunday morning is better than yours 😆😆😆

Oh how sweet it is indeed. Long weekend forecast? A night away from our kids for some well deserved R&R (i.e. cocktails, dinner, cocktails, cocktails, repeat).

What is everyone up to this long weekend?

I feel like I post this a lot (ok ok, I KNOW that I post this a lot). But I had a moment this past week when I was in the company of someone pretty amazing. There is something about her that is confident but warm, funny but incredibly intelligent and light yet focused.

It wasn't until I walked away from our conversation that I realized why I am so drawn to her. She is all of these things: inspiring, motivated, grateful and open-minded but she also challenges me to think bigger, see possibility, continue to grow and encourages me (and everyone around her) to love themselves just as they are while they are continuing to grow.

So when I say surround yourself with these kind of people its because it is crucial to how you will grow. If you want to stay stagnant hang out with the nay-sayers, the complainers and the energy suckers who prefer to talk about other people (ah hm - you are totally thinking about someone right now aren't you...maybe even a few) but if you want to grow then surround yourself with the inspiring, motivated, grateful and open minded who challenge you, and question you, and hold you accountable, and push you, and who truly support you. They say you become like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose wisely 😉❤️
