On the difference between being prideful and being proud of who you are

You know how you can tell that you struggle with pride? When you're terrified to admit you are prideful because of what others might think. Ironic, isn't it? But that's exactly where I found myself for many years in my early 20s. I accomplished a lot in my teen years and early 20s, receiving more…

The paradox of setting limits

I've talked about a few of the lessons that I heard again and again during my retreat (through various books, courses, blog posts, etc.) and one of the ones that has stuck with me the most is the idea that limits can actually expand your life rather than shrinking it. As a noncomformist who spends…

Working toward my personal goals in 2015 {January review}

During my personal retreat (I know, I know, enough about it already...except it's had some pretty far reaching effects, so I don't know how to share those without mentioning it!), I worked through Michael Hyatt's 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever. Some of the workshop ended up not being extremely relevant for the personal…

You were born to create

"You were born to create." Do you believe that's true? Do you consider yourself creative? A few years ago, I might have said that some people were creative and some people think in straight lines and black-and-white, falling into the latter category myself. But over the past few years, I've discovered that you can be…

“Clutter is not just the stuff on your floor…”

  "Clutter is not just the stuff on your floor—it's anything that stands between you and the life you want to be living." ~Peter Walsh I love this quote. We tend to focus on the physical stuff when we're simplifying and decluttering—and I've talked about decluttering enough that I'm sure you know I think that's…

My most important goal for 2015

As I was thinking about my enthusiasm for things like eating healthy, exercising regularly, reading a variety of books and being more intentional about family time as we kick off the new year, I realized that my most important goal for 2015 is one that I've neglected in the past: monthly evaluations. In fact, this…

Why I’m sticking with my one word for 2015

Last year I struggled to decide on my "one word" for the year before settling on the word live. This year, however, the choice seemed obvious. I've learned so much through that one little 4-letter word—and I'll be walking through the themes of creating a life you love in our brand new course—so I've decided to…

Reviewing 2014 and setting goals for 2015

I began seeing posts around the blogosphere last week that were looking back at 2014 and ahead to 2015, but in all honesty, December had already been so chaotic for us that I couldn't even wrap my head around being reflective, evaluating the past year or setting goals for the new year! Once Christmas morning…
