Quieting The Noise

Quieting The Noise.
The Outside Noise can be distracting- people's opinions, judgements, comparisons and constantly feeling like you are not measuring up. All the "Noise" of everyone else... Friends, Parents, Siblings, Spouses, Co-workers, on lookers... It makes us questions who we are, how far we have come- where we are headed and the path we are taking to get there. 
Are we moving too quickly? Not moving fast enough? Moving in the wrong direction? Have we completely fallen off the path all together? 

For me, it starts with the noise from others AND that noise ends up in MY HEAD. When everyone else leaves and the external voices have quieted it is the voice- the NOISE-in my head that I cannot quiet. The one that tells me that I should be moving faster, slower, left, right, up, down; it makes me dizzy, confused, frustrated and mostly like I am not measuring up. I have ideas and goals and people counting on me and why have I NOT achieved what I set out to achieve yet?

This is the NOISE that WE need to QUIET because guess what? No one is watching, judging or comparing YOU when they are making ALL that Noise! They are watching, judging and comparing THEMSELVES; feeling they are being pulled in a million directions and NOT measuring up- like they are letting themselves and others down; they are NOT actually looking at you at all!

Here's the thing...we ALL have NOISE. We judge ourselves. We are very unkind to ourselves most of the time. We have very high expectations for ourselves and know exactly how to beat ourselves up enough to make ourselves miserable. The trick is quieting the NOISE so that we can enjoy the journey; be Happy in the moment- celebrating each success (big or small) and appreciate the beautiful things along the way- even the ones that are hurtful and challenging. 

Quieting the noise is different for everyone. It can be a long run (that's mine). A bubble bath. A glass of wine. A day at the beach. Watching your favorite TV show or movie. Shopping on line. A night out with friends, family or your significant other...
Whatever it is YOU need to do to Quiet the Noise inside your head and remember to enjoy your unique journey; figure it out because no matter how strong you are, what goals, ideas and/or plans you have we all have times when the NOISE gets too loud and we need to sit in complete quiet and be proud of the person we are and the things we have accomplished and Excited about the future.

New Year Refresh

I t’s that time of year when the holidays are over our holiday Decor is put away, hopefully! Your home is clean & quiet & let’s face it- we’re stuck in the house right now due various reasons. So, it’s a great time to reevaluate and refresh. I find that if I don’t go through my things, refresh and get rid of things that I don’t need or use; think those fancy underwear that you bought that were so uncomfortable that you never wore them!  That being said- Let’s get rid of the clutter and keep the things that we feel our best in! If we learned anything in 2020 it was to live our best lives. I like to take the end of January/beginning of February as a time to go through my things. I start with the most important; my “intimates”… Meaning bras underwear pajamas and of course my robe! This week at Smooth Styling with Corinne we are going to explore all of these!

Making a list, checking it twice...

Do you have a holiday shopping list? Santa should not be the only one making a list & checking it twice!  Getting & staying  organized around the holidays is a skill all to its own. As we know most Moms have what we call"Holiday Anxiety." Don't get me wrong- I know you LOVE the holidays! The decorating as a family, baking together, visiting Santa, getting the Christmas tree & decorating, drinking hot chocolate together- the whole shebang... BUT we have A LOT to do & most of that "To Do" is behind the scenes. It is the prepping, the shopping, the wrapping, the organizing that the kids, & often others, do not see.  Well, I do not need one more thing to be stressed about. I want to enjoy my hot chocolate & be able to reorganize the ornaments on the Christmas tree in peace :) and I would be LOST without my Holiday Gift Spreadsheet. I am not a spreadsheet kind of girl on the daily. I will admit that lists are my jam & I could not live with
