My New Found Joys!


Since I've been on this journey to finding myself I have really found joy in Inspiration/Detox Books. These books basically help give you inspiration to challenge yourself a little more. You can write in it or take some of their ideas for everyday inspiration . I usually like to go through mine first thing in the morning to get my day started and to see if there is anything new I can try. We all have those days when were not feeling out best but we still need to keep pushing forward. Right? These books are great ways to write down your thoughts and goals and reach them. [daily goals that is].


The first book I want to talk about is called starting today a journal of intention and change. This book/journal is a way for you to take steps in changing bad habits or taking a different approach to a situation and every section starts out with starting today i will.... This was the first book I purchased and I write in it everyday and it really does bring me peace when I accomplish those things. Somethimes they are the smallest of things like, today I will ask questions, very simple things that you may have a hard time doing. You write about whatever it is that you want to accomplish.


This book is also filled with little ideas to complete everyday! 


The second book I want talk about is unplug everyday 365 ways to log off and live better. This book is filled with so many ideas to get out of your comfort zone and see the world a different way. Sometimes we all have a routine and we follow that routine daily. Work, school, gym home, but getting out of a routine is a good way to expand your mind. As much as we love social media it really has diminished the face to face interaction with people. This is a great way to still keep that social interaction and take risks to step out of your comfort zone.



I hope you enjoy some of these books because I know I really do and If I find anymore that are just as exciting to me, I'll share them with you

until next time xoxo


What is Success?....


Well...Its currently 2:27am as I'm writing this. Why am I awake you ask? Mostly because I have a million thoughts running through my mind, but the one I want to talk about is Success! and what does it mean to be successful. I'm going through all these images of multi million dollar homes on my computer and my mind can't grasp what I would do if I could afford something like that.

We all want success but in what form money, friendship, love life, education, career or is success to us when we have all of those things. I think that we are molded to think that success means physical things and people who worship you (like having fans). Don't get me wrong I'm sure that is an incredible feeling to have so many people look up to you but at the end of the day what is success with just yourself.

I think its finding self fulfillment and finding things in life that you enjoy. I thinks its doing things that take your mind to a positive place and surrounding yourself with like minded people. but the key is finding that hidden success within yourself and creating a life that you enjoy. That could mean if you love to travel, take the time to travel and see the world and make arrangements in life for it. I don't ever want to get stuck in the mind set that I can't see the world because Im stuck at a job, No! I want to see the world and travel and try different food and just experience life.

I don't think you can ever find success within yourself if you never take risks and if you don't get rid of things in your life that may be hindering your success. As scary as that may sound I feel its true. Taking a leap of faith into an unknown territory is what can open doors in the long run. Or trying new things.

I guess what Im trying to say is find your success! and I'm saying this to myself as well. Sometimes we have to take a leap of faith to find out what we love and by finding out what we love, that can be the key to opening up our success. I feel that by finding success within yourself, life because just that more sweet and memorable.
