My tip for getting back your lust for life!


Happy May lovelies!! oh how I love the month of May... (my Birthday month yay!). So since its my birthday week and I have been going through some "things", I just thought I would start the week with a much needed motivational post.

Lets be realistic not all of us can go on a Eat Pray Love journey when we feel like our worlds becoming everything we don't want or even falling apart, but there is something I do that I feel might just do the trick for you. Recently my world just felt a bit shaken up. While dealing with all my emotions I decided I would keep writing notes. Notes on what I missed, what I craved and what I actually wanted. 

After any hard time there comes that one day, the epiphany day as I like to call it. This is the moment you want to read all the notes you took on those dark days and figure out a plan of action. How to get everything you desire in life or think of ways to insert all the "things" you felt was missing in your life so you can finally get on the path of true happiness. 

For me these moments of clarity is what is needed to get me back to a good starting point. The plans I have also keep me motivated to look forward to the future. 


I hope this tip will help someone out there!
What is your tip or go to routine when you feeling unhinged?

  4. They say that 40 days before your birthday and after your birthday, you reevaluate your life - what is serving you and what isn't - who is and isn't and so on. Most people's changes (good and bad) happen around this time.
    I find when I'm in a rut, I write everything down that brings me joy - everything from a cup of tea to the bigger things. I also write a list of everything I'm grateful for. It's amazing how this can shift energies and attract better things. Sending hugs x

  5. Whenever my birthday approaches I get slightly apprehensive and it makes me reevaluate my life. It's not always pretty and I usually have to take a time out from the people around me to get through it. Proper alone time... good luck hun and enjoy your birthday week :) x

  7. Meghan...I've been having many of these days lately. More like years lol. It's been a tough couple of years...and I attribute it to my quarter life crisis. These are such great tips to keep in mind. Writing is so cathartic. And whether it's keeping a journal or writing down your goals...I think all of these things keep you centered and help you focus on what you want out of life and what your purpose is. Girl it's your birthday month...it's your birthday week...and I want you to know that you are special! Keep inspiring people with your written word:)! Happy Birthday Hun!

  21. When I'm having a bad day or rough patch I tend to read or watch inspiring stories that put everything back into perspective! I've made over my life these past two years to live with a positive, non-judgmental outlook, and it's reduced my past struggles with anxiety and depression greatly!

  25. I have a gratitude diary and a dream journal. the gratitude diary I try to do every day. the dream journal I only use when something I really want to have in my life pops into my mind. and every time I'm down or feel less than motivated/inspired, I read through the things I want in my life. always helps!

  28. The older I get, the more I always think about where my life is and where it's going around my birthday. I can happily say though that I'm very content with where things are in my life!
