Grateful Challenge

It hasn’t been the best of years – I know we are all feeling that and with the impending holidays it can feel like everything is being taken away from us. But the truth is, even if we have to look a little harder one day than the next, there is good in every day.Continue reading “Grateful Challenge”

Control: Refocus

This is a common thing I say to a lot of people because it rings so true in every aspect of life. If things aren’t in your control, you can’t allow them to control you. In this moment so many are stressed over the election and the looming results that we may not have untilContinue reading “Control: Refocus”

When You’ve Had Enough

It took a while for me to have “had enough.” Enough of how I was feeling, enough of the toxicity, enough of the fighting, eggshells, anxiousness…I had to WANT the change instead of wishing it would just happen. The reality is that life shouldn’t feel so difficult and it doesn’t have to…if you’re making theContinue reading “When You’ve Had Enough”

CRUSH It.

Have you ever started a day completely anxious, nervous, tense, scared about whatever the day could bring or what could happen in that morning meeting or how someone was going to react to the email you sent late last night? 𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐇𝐏 𝐓𝐇𝐀𝐓. For real. You π™˜π™–π™£ stop having that kind of reaction when you π™˜π™π™€π™€π™¨π™šContinue reading “CRUSH It.”

Notice Your Progress

I’ve been discussing this more and more over the last week with clients…notice where you were and where you are NOW. We’re with ourselves all the time (duh) so, we are less apt to notice the changes in ourselves until someone else says something or something slaps us in the face to point it out.MakeContinue reading “Notice Your Progress”

Captivity

Captivity. It’s a strong word and at first, if you’re like me, you would have equated it to war and thought this doesn’t pertain to me. I truly didn’t think it did as I read the book, “Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence – From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror.” See, it was 2015Continue reading “Captivity”

You Never Have To Do It Alone

The people have spoken I’m not saying I have all the answers. What I’m suggesting is that you never have to go through your journey alone. From the very first steps you take, you can have someone to lean on, talk things through with and start making choices that’ll guide you to your end goal,Continue reading “You Never Have To Do It Alone”

Feel Happiness

“The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the live of others.” This quote is so incredibly true. I am someone that people have always gone to for advice, an ear, a shoulder…watching how this helped people or how the advice and guidance changed their world for the better, it gave meContinue reading “Feel Happiness”

Happiness Is a Choice

I know, you may be having a moment reading this all like, β€œMarissa, I can’t choose happiness like it’s on a shelf at Target.” *insert your eye roll here* But believe me when I say, you’re RIGHT, because it’s INSIDE OF YOU. You just choose if you allow yourself to feel it or not. ForContinue reading “Happiness Is a Choice”

There’s Nothing Holding Me Back

We all have things we want to achieve and what’s normal is to feel like things get in our way that deter us. It may happen more than once. You may feel like nothing is going your way and that someone just doesn’t want you to reach your goal. That someone? It just might beContinue reading “There’s Nothing Holding Me Back”
