Close your eyes and make a list of people you’re thankful for. Ready? Thirty seconds, starting now… ⏱ Now that you’re back, I have to ask you a question: Were YOU on that list? 📝 Did you think of how thankful you were for your hard work, dedication, and hustle? 💪🏼 Did you consider appreciating your sheer will to push forward in business, despite the odds? 💡 There are many thankless days as a business owner. Mornings when you rush the kids out the door, afternoons sitting in traffic, evenings spent in an overwhelming inbox, and entire weekends spent catching up with a work to-do list. 🗒 You spend so much time thinking about others, doing things for others, and thanking others, that by the time your head hits the pillow at night, there’s a good chance you hope it swallows you whole. 🛏 But I’m here to remind you that thanking yourself is POWERFUL. Give yourself the permission to see and appreciate your efforts. ✨ It’s good to say you’re grateful for your work ethic, your chutzpah, and general bad assery. 💥 I believe that when you thank yourself, you empower others to express their thankfulness for you too, but realize their appreciation has little to do with your own beliefs. 🔥 Next time you make a list of who you’re thankful for, be sure to add yourself. 💯 Your hard work and passion are what’s bringing your dreams to life. ⚡️ Appreciate these moments because they will push you in the direction you’re determined to go.
SO excited for a shoot in Portland next week...I've never been, so what should I do/see/eat/stay? 🌳 Also, should I pack a flannel shirt and get a tattoo of a bird on my forearm? 💪🏼 Do I get bonus points for riding a moped with a typewriter secured to the backseat by a bandana whilst drinking fair trade coffee in a recyclable cup? 🛵 Please help me...am I too late getting a hipster tutorial? Is that even a THING still? Am I as uncool as I sound? Yes or Yes. 🤦🏽♀️ Portland lovers: halllllllllp.
Dear Monday: please send more coffee. What's your drink of choice this morning? ☕️
Early morning walk on the beach, deep breaths, and gratitude. Sometimes I forget how the (little) things mean the MOST. 🐶 Wherever you are, I hope you feel loved and know you how much you matter...and how a few seconds of appreciation melt away hours of stress. 💕 We are blessed to breathe, work, and start each day with the opportunity to pursue our dreams, so take the (little) you have and make the MOST of it, friend! 💪🏼 What are you doing this weekend? More importantly are you thankful for it? 😉
