You Matter More Than You Know


So many big, crazy things are happening right now that you may feel like what you do isn’t significant, or what you say doesn’t make an impact. 

But you matter, today and every day. You matter to your friends. You matter to your family. You matter to your children (and fur babies!). You matter to the waiter you tip and the delivery person you greet with a smile. You matter to your coworkers, neighbors and the charities you donate to. 

You make such an impact with the work you do (whether that’s at home or at the office), and in your relationships, that people likely depend on your joy, confidence and uplifting spirit to brighten up their days, give them hope and make them feel good.

You play a big role in this word and it’s important to remember that! 

If you’re in need of a reminder of just how much you matter, this weekend take a moment and …

1. Write out a list. Yes, it sounds silly, but jot down who you matter to and why. Putting pen to paper forces you to think deeper. Then read over the list again and again so it really sinks in.

2. Write down three things you can do that will make a positive difference in someone’s life. Maybe it’s calling a friend who’s been going through a tough time, sending an email to support a cause you believe in, or ordering a bouquet of flowers for your mom just because. Then, act on one of those ideas.

You’re amazing and you make our world a better place. Don’t ever forget it!

Make Time for Your Dreams

What’s one thing you could do that would make this year stand out from the rest and make you feel like you took a big leap in your life?

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.
