Fall scarves

I absolutely love fall! Actually, I love every season except for winter…sorry winter :(. One of the things I love the most about fall is that I get to layer my outfits and with the layering, I get to disguise that post baby bump, did I mention the baby is 6 years old ūüėČ lol. I can’t seem to get enough of scarves and the versatile way I can use them! Here are some fall scarf ideas to help you get through the season. Drop a comment below and let me know which fall scarf photo is your favourite.

Gratitude and Affirmations

gratitude

So often we go through our busy days running from one thing to the next. We barely have a minute to breathe deeply, much less time to be present in the moment and experience gratitude. I am going to challenge you to stop. Breathe deeply. Look around you and be present to the moment you are in. Say these 3 affirmations. Pause. Then go about your day.

  • I feel an abundance of gratitude for everything I already have and will receive each¬†day.
  • I am grateful for everything I experience in this lifetime. I overcome, I grow and I prosper all the time. My abundant blessings, as well¬†as my difficulties, all work to make me better, stronger and more alive.
  • I am so grateful for every person in my life and I am¬†grateful for God’s endless gifts and experiences to me.

I hope these affirmations will be a blessing to you.

Light and Positivity

Light and positivity epic life

In the last two days, I’ve sat with girlfriends and listened to them pour their hearts out. Strong women. Women who take care of everyone else in their lives. Exceptional women who are noticing that their light is feeling a bit dimmed; that they don’t seem to have the energy to serve everyone around them the way the once used to. Women who I’ve had to remind that they need to fill their cups too.

As I listened, I realized how many women are feeling this way. Over-extended. Tired. In need of rest. So often life treats us to hard knocks, questions us about our purpose and tries to encourage us to become complacent in our comfort zones. It tells us to juggle all our balls well and it’s the first to criticize us if we don’t. We find ourselves twisting and bending to do it all; be it all. Then collapsing when we realize we can’t be every woman to every person. We can’t take care of it all. We can’t do it all.

Maybe it’s time to collect ourselves. Meditate, pray, exercise, get outside; breathe. Fill our cup so full that it overflows with gratitude and joy. Maybe we can live that way, love that way. Maybe we can make a choice to take care of ourselves. Too. It’s not selfish, it’s self-care. Maybe it’s that choice for self-care that will take us on our ultimate journey to help us live a life of light and positivity. And maybe, just maybe, it’s that light and positivity that will create a transformative difference in us, how we feel, who we are and how we experience this world and the people in it. ¬†Maybe it’s that light and positivity that will enable¬†us to¬†live our truly epic lives.
