My mental health is something that’s important to me, and something that I have to work on every single day. Since May is mental health awareness month, it has been nice seeing others share their stories of struggle and triumph. Knowing I’m not alone is helpful. I want you to know that you aren’t alone. I want you to know that these issues are not signs of weakness. I want you to know it’s totally ok to take some time for yourself if you need it. 💖 #mentalhealthawareness
Are you setting the right goals for your Instagram? If you’re all about getting that followers number up, there’s a few things you’re missing. Click the link to check out the goals you should be setting.
Happy Monday! My challenge to you this week is to make yourself more visible on social media. I was terrified of this for a long time, and there are still parts of me that are- I have yet to go live 😱- but the moment I started making myself more visible online, and off, was the moment that my business really began to change for the better. Let your audience get to know you and see your face so that they build a connection and want to do business with you. I guarantee you will not regret it. Photo by the talented @christinamia
Last year I felt like I was in a major creative rut. This year I started studying creativity a bit, and felt it was important for me to have other creative outlets that weren’t my job. I enjoyed water color as a kid, and decided to explore that a bit more when @casajoshuatree hosted a workshop. There’s something incredibly soothing about it that my mind enjoys getting lost in. As a creative, how important is it to you to explore creativity outside of your work?
I need you to know that you are worthy of a successful business and a life you love. I’m certainly guilty of getting caught up in the mindset of ‘if I’m not doing x, y, z, then I’m doing it wrong’. And I definitely get that on social media we can get swept away with the comparisons. Just know you aren’t alone. I’ve found what feels best is going at my own pace, being proud of every accomplishment (and that can mean just making through the day sometimes), and trusting my intuition. Do what feels in alignment with you. You are worthy.
This is my mom! She’s really brave having survived raising me and my brother. 😆 While she’s certainly endured a lot, one thing I would like to share is that she was born with an autoimmune disease that attacked her liver. We lived a long time not knowing why she was always sick. Once we figured it out, it was a relief, and also very scary. Due to the not great laws here in California, my mom, brother, and dad relocated to Florida for a few years to await a transplant. It’s been 7 years since a family mourning their son decided to give the gift of life and donate his organs. When I really stop to think about it, it truly blows my mind. There is another person’s liver thriving inside of her. There was a family that was hurting but made a decision that saved my mom’s life and probably a few others. If you haven’t already, please register as an organ donor. I will forever be grateful and in awe for what science and love have done to save her. #donatelife#loveyoumom

Hi friends, it’s me again, emerging from some flowers... again. I’m currently writing a short ebook that will guide you to come up with creative content so if you have any questions, please leave them below. Or if you have any other questions, that’s fine too. I’m happy to help. 🌷😎🌷 photo by @christinamia
Productivity! How do we get it all done??? It’s not about getting MORE things done. It’s about getting the RIGHT things done. #tuesdaythoughts ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(I just want to add that no flowers were harmed in the making of this content because I got yelled at for being amongst nature. 😭)
Being relentless helps build character through determination, struggle, and resilience. This state of mind can give you strength to achieve, survive, and overcome. Be unwavering in your pursuit of success. Be unwavering in your pursuit of happiness. #mondaymood#mondaymotivation
Writing captions can be intimidating sometimes. What will I say? What will people think about what I say? When I first started, I was terrified of sounding uninteresting and like I didn’t know what I was talking about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The best advice I can give to this is to remember that we’re all human. We all get discouraged, insecure, and overwhelmed. And we all want to feel encouraged, heard, and understood. You don’t need to say the perfect thing every single time. We want to know there’s a real, passionate human who’s running that business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If all else fails, pretend you’re talking to a friend while enjoying the best margarita you’ve ever had.
