You can do hard things

This is my philosophy in life. I don't know if it is because I have a daughter who I KNOW can do hard things- or if it is because I work with children who work Very Hard to accomplish things that most of us do not have to work hard for- or if it is because Everything in life that I have accomplished has been accomplished through hard work.
I am being completely serious when I tell you that I am an all around average person, at times below average. I am not super smart, not very good at sports, kind of awkward in social situations & don't have much talent... I'm not funny either- like at all!
But-so you know what I AM? I am Persistent. I am Determined. I Have GRIT & I believe- NO, I KNOW that I can do hard things! I do not take NO for an answer. When I make up my mind to do something I work my butt off until it happens- I make a decision & then I make a plan & I work hard until I get there...But, you know what else? I often doubt myself & don't succeed the first time. I also talk to myself A LOT when I am working towards a goal! I tell myself that I can do anything that I put my mind to. When I was training for my first half marathon, 6 weeks postpartum, & the HOT Summer sun was beating down on me as I was running mile after mile I would tell myself that I can do ANYTHING because I had a baby- Seriously though; what is harder than giving birth? NOTHING!
Our inner voice is SO Important & teaching our children to have a POSITIVE inner voice is imperative to their success in life. There is so much negativity that our children hear all day long. It is our job, our responsibility, to make sure they know that they are strong & able! This will help them to develop a strong sense of self, a desire to try new things, work hard, be their very best selves!
As the Mom of a daughter I think this is HUGE! I want Charlotte to know that she can accomplish anything she puts her mind to & that no matter how hard the task or challenge she is strong and she can do it- it may not be a smooth course. She will stumble. She will fail. She will even want to give up at times- but that is what makes the Success that much Sweeter!! Nothing in life is as amazing as accomplishing something that we work HARD for-

Beautiful Girl, YOU Can DO Hard Things!!

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
