Motivation Monday: No Doubt

Summer is FULL of good vibes. There’s sunshine, outdoor activities, longer days, and for some, a bit of travel. While you could be nose deep in a beach worthy novel, toes in the sand, chilled glass of rose in hand (aaahh) there still could be a part of you that is just feeling…well for lack of a better word…blah. Sometimes I find myself (even in the best of circumstances) feeling a lack of motivation. If you’ve got it all together and have never felt this way, this post may not be for you. But for the rest of us, I […]

Motivation Monday: The Importance of Independence

With a day to celebrate independence on the horizon I wanted to take a moment to reflect. While I could go on a tangent about the state of the world right now and how unity is SO important, I’m not going to. Instead I wanted to talk about something motivating to us as individuals. Something worth discussing because now more than ever, I feel like the world is becoming more unsure and even a little scary, especially with social media and how quick news seems to travel these days. I don’t remember being so uncertain about the future. This can […]

Motivation Monday: Fathers, Modern Day Heroes

This Motivation Monday is dedicated to some pretty important people that motivate us to be our best selves. It’s Monday, the start to a fresh week and one where we get to pay homage to the modern day heroes in our lives, dads. Fathers, mentors, husbands, brothers, uncles, there are many forms of what a father can mean to someone and it is something that is unique to each person. We would be in a very different place if we didn’t have these special men in our lives. It’s crucial to have a solid figure you can turn to when […]

Motivation Monday: Life Is A Marathon

Yesterday was the San Diego Rock-n-Roll Marathon. The route of the marathon winds around neighborhoods surrounding downtown San Diego and is a great time for the locals to come out of their homes and show their support for all the runners. It’s cool to see the perseverance of all walks of life, young and old, handicap and veteran runners all committed to the same task. As I was watching the runners pass by, trying to yell words of encouragement, I had a realization of the significance of it all. Sure running a marathon is a feat in itself, but the […]

Motivation Monday: Long Weekend Prep

This is a busy week, probably for you as well because of the holiday weekend coming up. I LIVE for long weekends and I think a lot of it has to do with the productivity that comes with preparing for one less workday. No one wants a mess when they come back from a long weekend and having the carefree attitude to enjoy time with friends and family gives you extra incentive to tie up loose ends and walk away feeling less stressed. That being said, I want to keep this post short and simple so you can get on […]

Motivation Monday: The Power of Music

Happy Monday everyone! The start of the week is a great opportunity to set some goals and add an intention to set the tone for your week. I was feeling a little overwhelmed on Saturday morning thinking of all the errands, homework, research, laundry, etc. I was trying to accomplish before I was due to my Pilates studio lesson.

I noticed my anxiousness and in result tried to slow down and see what I could do to prioritize […]

Motivation Monday: The Happiness Project

There have been moments in my life where something was said or I read the perfect thing at the time I needed to. One of these moments for me was when I stumbled upon the book The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I was searching for a new book to bring on a flight and this just happened to be highlighted on the bestseller list that year. I was intrigued by the title and even more so by the reviews. I never really thought about happiness in this way and began to question everything in my life. Maybe that sounds a […]
