    How to Find Purpose in Your Job

    It seems like now more than every, we want to find the ideal job. That unicorn that is everything we are looking for that will give us purpose. So how do you find purpose in the job you have, even if you don’t love your job? I have a few thoughts and ideas that may help. For years, I worked in positions that were definitely not glamorous. I was some form of a secretary, administrator, or assistant. It’s so easy to think “I’m unimportant, I don’t make a difference, my job is boring or my job is not what I want to be doing.” I’m not perfect and there were times I…

    The Powerful Questions That Can Change Your Life

    I don’t know about you, but sometimes life can feel overwhelming. Like you have all these ideas and dreams and goals, but what do you do about it? How do you laser focus in on something? Some of us were born knowing what we wanted to do in life, and others of us have to explore and try things out. I fall into the latter category for sure. One thing that I learned while attending a personal coaching workshop dramatically changed how I think about guiding myself through problem solving toward achieving my goals.

    How to Make Your Mornings Easy

I’ve always been secretly envious of the people who can kick off the covers, jump out of bed, and instantly be in a joyful mood, ready to face the day.

    Amika Hair Product Review

    Let’s talk hair products. I struggle with very fine hair, that is half curly and half straight, making it almost impossible to style without the use of some type of heat styling. I first learned about Amika hair products a few years ago and tried their Un.Done texture spray (Amazon affiliate link) on a whim, purchasing off Amazon.  I remember it being a game changer.

    The Enneagram personality test is something I’ve heard a lot about in the past few years. Many people whom I admire greatly talk about have raved about it as a way to better understand yourself and relate to others. But I had a hard time understanding the enneagram basics. To be honest, I took several tests online and was very confused by all the different tests. I could never remember my “number.” I felt like the test overall only focused on negative descriptions. It was hard for me to feel connected to it or any of the results. But that all changed as I learned more about it. It all…
