Turn Your Day Around

 

You can be a lighthouse, a shining star, a ray of sunshine all you want, but you’re bound to encounter grumpy, disgruntled people in your day.

You know the ones we’re talking about …

There’s the driver who cuts you off on your way home from the store — and then has the audacity to yell at you!

Or that coworker who knows just what to say in passing to make you feel this small.

But here’s the thing, Savvy — you can’t let someone ruin your day, or worse, your week, month or year.

You can’t allow them so much power to bring you down. Not that random stranger or sour coworker, no way!

Next time you find yourself in a negative space because of what someone else says or does, try reminding yourself of the following:

They don’t get to decide how I feel. I do! And I won’t let that person bring me down.

Repeat this phrase and think of things you’re grateful for until your mood starts to lift again.

Also, try not to take what they did personally. It’s almost never about us — it’s about them.

An important part of self-love is letting others’ negativity roll off us, rather than seep in — but it takes practice, so we have to be patient with ourselves too.

Love yourself enough to let those Negative Nellies go … your happiness is worth it. 😉

Have a wonderful weekend!
XO

These days, many of us are so pressed for time that we give ourselves few moments to do what actually excites us. But even if your day feels impossibly stuffed, you can make time for what really matters.

Sounds nice, but how, you may be wondering? I’m so happy you asked!

You Are Enough, Right Now

You Are Enough, Right Now

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.
