Nurture Your Power

 

Alright, it’s autumn!! Like many Midwestern women, it is my favorite time of year.

Bring on the layers, bring on the cider, bring on the smell of leaves, bring on the creepy stories. This time of harvest is a perfect time to not only fly your freak flag proudly, but also to tune into what makes you feel good and warm.

Lately, what’s keeping me warm and holding my focus is nurturing my power. The key and the result are the same; let it go.

“Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”Brené Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

Let the bullshit that doesn’t serve your goal go. Let the haters go. The cloud of laziness, the fear of failure and/or missing out, the insecurity; let ’em go. I’ve found, and I’ve said it before, that with this mindset, even the jerks that cross my path and test my capacity to ‘let it go’ can’t shake my strong hold on this. This is the key to my successes, big or small. Babylove, it’s the key to your success, too.

Essential Playlist (Vol. II): Songs for a Summer’s Evening

Summer is in full swing and I am back with a treat for your ears. I encourage a dance move or two…or three!!

It has truly been a whirlwind season. As August begins, I am compelled to curate a perfect summer night’s playlist, but also sitting here wondering how it got to be August so quickly! This playlist is perfectly suited for a backyard canopied in white lights, citronella candles, cozy old blankets cast over chairs and singing insects.

Whether you’ll be taking in the night sky, hosting a backyard shindig or simply cooking with all the windows open (my favorite thing to do) this evening, turn up the volume and enjoy this second dreamy mix!!

As always, here are the two links to enjoy the Essentials (Vol. II) as you read the tidbits I’ve included to set the mood:

YouTube – Essential Playlist (Vol. II) – features some fun music videos

Spotify – Essential Playlist (Vol. II) – *recommended* for highest quality

Positive Thinking – 3 Simple Steps

Hello, my people!

I want to talk to you about this amazingly simple thing, that has completely changed my life – Positive thinking.

I know, I know. This sounds so cliche! But I’m as serious as a heart attack, as they say. Stick with me.

I’ve been working on myself for the past couple of years. Of course, I wish I could tell you I’ve always had this tool in my back pocket, but I didn’t. I just didn’t get the whole, “happiness is a choice,” thing. So, of course, positive thinking seemed totally silly to me, too.

Halle-freakin’-lujah. I get it now!
