The power of a mentor

As promised last week, today we’ll be focusing on the topic of MENTORS! But first, let me ask you this simple question… Have you ever had someone believe in you soooo much that you had no choice but to start believing in yourself too? In fairytale context, a person like this is considered a fairy…

Two magical words: Thank You

Originally, there was a totally different topic scheduled for this week’s blog. You were supposed to be reading about the magic of ‘mentors’. Not to worry though, we’ll be sure to post it in the near future. Disclaimer: It’s a really good one too, so stay tuned.  However, a few hours ago I received an…

The beauty of hardships

Look at you.. still here. What a week you’ve had, yet you’re still standing! We can’t help but begin today’s blog by taking a moment to congratulate you. Yes, YOU! “For what?” You ask.

SELF-LOVE

Now I know we often talk about believing in oneself, discovering your purpose, working hard, never giving up, overcoming obstacles, and going after your dreams week after week on this blog. However, this week’s blog post highlights a topic that I purposely have neglected to write about for many reasons. Ironically, in order to achieve…

New Beginnings

It’s a new month!  And if you know anything about me, you’ll know that I LOVE the idea of new beginnings. I love Sundays because it falls on the brink of a new week. (Technically, it is the first day of the week.) And, it’s the time when everyone is planning for what’s ahead (whether…
