My personal plant collection is growing. Mostly thanks to my @farmgirlflowers obsession. . I’ve kept them alive so far but we’ll see what they’re like when we get home from Thanksgiving in San Diego. . Plant ladies, send me all your pro tips.
How are you with boundaries? . This is something I’ve really tried working on in my business and personal life. I’ve got to be honest, it’s been really hard for me. I’m a people pleaser and really hate the thought of “letting people down” but one of the best things I’ve learned to do is to put me and my family first and it’s been a game changer. . If this is something you struggle with I want to encourage you to work on boundaries for you. It’s not selfish. It will be one of the biggest gifts for your sanity, business and life. ❤️
Hi there! I'm Melissa! Once in a while, I like to reintroduce myself in 30 words for some of you that might be stumbling on my IG for the first time. I know what you’re thinking, that nightgown I’m wearing looks super comfy. It’s a dress people. I made a poor fashion choice and now I’m living with it. Moving on. 1. I am obsessed with the Enneagram. 2. I am a small business strategist 3. I love Jesus and pizza and my family, and the order of that is not intentional. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Introduce yourself in 30 words or less! Excited to make some new friends on here!
Time. It’s something that I have taken for granted. Our most precious commodity. I spend most of my time thinking about my future, the things I could or should be doing. I worry about things that feel like they are shaping my reality. I spend a lot of time investing in my business. But what happens when something shakes your world? Do you spend your time busying yourself with your routines or do you stop and reflect? I was curious about how I would react when faced with a gut blow and I don’t have a definitive answer. It’s been a little bit of both. Keeping normalcy and reflecting. And right now I’m ok with that.
She’s gone. . She would hate to know that everyone is making such a “fuss” over her. That we’re crying for her. She hated having her picture taken and wouldn’t like that I had been posting her all over the internet. . She took her last breath at 8:01am today. Even when you know what’s coming you can’t know how to handle it. . I spent the morning going through photos. I hate that I don’t have as many as my memory holds. I sat listening to voicemails I had saved from her, just to hear her voice. Save voicemails friends. . Thank you for walking through this with me and my family. The messages I’ve received have been so touching. ❤️

Even amongst sadness I’m still thinking about work. . I guess it’s not really work if I love what I do. It might even be helping to keep me somewhat sane instead of focusing on reality. . So I have a few questions for you, do you bury yourself in work? What do you do to keep yourself motivated regardless of what is happening around you? Help keep my mind busy with your responses ❤️

In the market for some good baskets for my house. I love using them for blankets, or anything else in my house that makes a room feel messy.
