Positivity



I have been giving this topic A LOT of thought lately. I am hearing of and seeing so many quotes like this one flying around social media- & then I am hearing & seeing the opposite of this happening. Why, as women/Moms, are we NOT "Practicing what we preach?" Why are we cutting each other down, judging & being cruel to one another? I am NOT saying I am perfect, because believe me when I am hurt & on a rampage I am so guilty of saying unkind things....Here's the thing-
1. Negativity Breeds Negativity- meaning that when we are acting in negative ways, having negative thoughts and speaking negatively that is EXACTLY what we are going to bring into our lives...which is of course going to make us feel negative & continue to be nasty & hurtful to those around us.
2. This one is SO IMPORTANT- Look around You! Who is watching us? Our children! When we continue to be judgemental & hurtful to people & speak to people in a mean way guess what we are teaching our children? Yes! Our kids look up to us! They want to be just like us & when they see Mom, or Dad, acting in a negative way they assume that that is the way that they should be acting & the vicious cycle of Negativity continues!
Let's Break the Cycle-
This is not an easy thing to do. It comes with a lot of positive self talk, reminders to push through the negativity & at times removal from certain people and situations that bring us bad feelings and cause us to act in an ugly way.
I am working hard to train my mind to be positive.
I am meditating each morning.
Exercising before I begin my day- even if only for a little while to get the positivity flowing through my body.
I am reading self help books to stay positivity- currently reading: "You Can Have It All, Just Not at The Same Damn Time," by Romi Neustadt
Here are a list of things to do to stay positive & spread positivity so that we can will support one another & raise a generation of loving, kind people who smile & support one another.

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! We will talk about underwear/panties (I hate that word)... bras/bralettes/sports bras, pajamas- I will Share with you my fav

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
