Always be well

Break Glass Ceilings

Break glass ceilings….
Supersize your life
We have not because we ask not
Up your game this year
It’s time to pray big prayers
Believe God for unbelievable things
Your potential is Gods gift to you
Your gift is your return to God

So remember to break some glass ceilings and shake things up!

Fall is officially here…2020!

It’s officially fall, which means you might be in the midst of creating a cozy and clean home – from decluttering and organizing your closet to opening your mind and restructuring your life. This season helps me to recognize that we could learn a lot from the trees this time of year.Sometimes, you just have to let go,trusting that new life will come.

Sweater Weather makes me happy!

Many of us are consciously making small but meaningful adjustments to our daily routine that support our mental, physical, and emotional health, especially as we continue to spend more time indoors.Sometimes, you just have to let things fall, and trust that it will fall back into place.Let’s learn how to let go of the unnecessary excess things in our lives and hold on to what matters and is important for our growth.

Fall is learning to let go! Now go put on your sweater and enjoy the outdoors!

October 2020 blog topic: Organized and On pointe

It’s Sweater Weather!

October is finally here and to say that this year has been a whirl wind of chaos is an understatement! Luckily Fall is one of my favorite seasons because of its beautiful colorful changes as well as unpredictable challenges.

I can’t believe that nine months have passed already! It’s been quite the ride! In order to maintain balance my strategy is to find ways to make myself happy.I enjoy putting on a cozy sweater in the morning and get my day started. This gets me ready and relaxed with a big cup of hot tea with lemon.

Whether you’re looking for a way to destress and have fun or there’s a hobby you’ve been wanting to take up for years, it’s never too late to try something new. Staying organized is important when changes occur. Try to maintain a sense of familiarity and things will fall into place.

This month you can dive into activities like virtual art, fitness, baking classes,and more. Make sure to begin with an organized list or schedule for your to do tasks. Remember to have fun while you’re getting Organized & On pointe!

Stay connected and socially distanced and don’t forget to wear your sweater! Welcome October!

It’s been 6weeks since the country has been on lockdown.Currently we are dealing with a multitude of emotions – anxiety, stress, sadness, and anger.Many people face challenges in their life that can impact their mental health.1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime.

As a result, individuals may be coping in different ways, including turning to food for comfort. Diet plays an important role in why we may be feeling more anxious and stressed right now, too.
