TOP (ALSO LOVE) / JEANS / BAG / JACKET / HEELS

Okay, so I splurged a little on this top.  Heres why..

  1. Its a plaid top so its VERY versatile.  I’m all about versatility.
  2. The quality is absolutely amazing and so comfortable. 
  3. It can be worn in any season.  Its lighter weight, so in Fall/Winter you can just wear a jacket.  The Summer you can roll the sleeves up.  Like I said, lightweight so not heavy and hot.

AND for the love guys.  These JEANS are my absolute favorite of all time. The fit, the color, the holes. Just lovey love.

Switching a lane here.  I’m really into positive talk and self love.  I wanted to share a little tip of mine, that I’ve been applying in my life thats helped the way I look at life in general.

Let’s try this challenge

Remove all negative words from your life & see how you feel the next few days.  I apply this a lot to texts, emails etc… when you start out communicating with negative words even though you’re not meaning to be, it sounds negative and makes the other kinda… stand offish?  Would you agree.   Here are the words I’m talking about.
 
Unfortunately
But
Sorry.. (but) 
But Whatever (do whatever you want) 
Can’t 
Not
Aren’t
 
Replace them with…
 
“That sounds so cool!  Here is another idea I want to run by you that I think would work for us…___”
“Thank you for thinking of me or thanks for the invite…I’ve got other plans, lets plan for another time”
“Thank you for being patient”
“Thats cool, lets look at some other options instead” or “These are options we can do, let me know what you think”
“That’s sounds fun! I’m heading to ____ today, let’s plan for another day” 
 
Do you guys catch my drift??  It’s so crazy because even as a positive person, we use these ways of communicating without even realize how it’s coming across.  I feel that it’s so important to be communicating this way through emails & texts because you don’t know the tone of their voice.  In these days, we should be practicing removing those negative words and replacing with positive so the other person can take it the right way, and you can get off on the right start.
 
Those are my thoughts for the day that I wanted to share!  Let me know if you liked this little post and I’ll continue to do more.

EXPECT LESS, APPRECIATE MORE…

What does this mean?  It means to never have expectations and always always appreciate any given moment no matter how negative you find it.  I’ve been constantly saying this over and over in my head and its truly changed my outlook on life and makes me a a happier person.

If we constantly expect people to act a certain way, be a certain way, or do things that we imagine them too.   You will be living in constant disappoint.  That disappoint will lead to anger, or even worse depression and sadness.  We all go there, we all do it.  It’s hard not to, but if you make a conscious effort to appreciate it, instead of expecting something, your life will change.   If you walk with the intent of expecting nothing, you will become a much happier person!

Thats just my little thought I wanted to share with you all.  Short, simple & to the point.  Hope this gets your week started on the right foot.  Be happy, go out and kick some ass.  Love you guys!

xoxo,
