Tip Tuesday – Boundaries

Life tip? SET BOUNDARIES.

I used to be a huge offender of going beyond boundaries, and heaping my ish on other people. And I also used to be the one who let others heap their ish on ME.

Stop allowing people to be disrespectful, draining, or demanding of your time. Take responsibility for your time and how you are treated.

Create boundaries and enforce them!

Thankful Thursday – Busy Schedules

If you have these kind of people in your life, be thankful and apprecative of them! These are the keepers – we are ALL busy, but there is something to be said for a ride-or-die friend who makes the love and support happen no matter what.

I have a lot of these people in my life and I could not be more grateful for, of appreciative of, these treasures. I am a lucky girl, and I know it!

Try It Tuesday – Volunteer

Did you know that volunteering is one of the best things you can do? It lifts your mood, puts things into perspective, lifts the spirits of those you help (elderly, the dogs at the shelter, etc), fosters a community feeling, and so many other things?

I know what you are thinking — we are all so busy, where do we find the time to volunteer? And I am guilty too – I don’t give back to the community enough. I have been hyper focused on building my business to give myself a little breathing room and financial relief, but I have also wanted to do more for the community, and so I think it’s time to find the balance and allot some time to GIVE BACK.

How about you? Do you volunteer? Do you want to? What would be your ideal volunteer job?

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day, guys. I grew up the daughter of a military man – Air Force and then National Guards, and my dad, among all our others military service members, are my inspiration and my heroes. I know this day is “unofficially” the start of summer, but please take a moment to really reflect and respect the sacrifices that were made, are made, and will continue to be made.

As always, with great respect and honor, Happy Memorial Day 🙂
