Be Kind To Yourself

Be Kind To Yourself This unfortunately is one of the hardest things to do, and why?  We need to love ourselves before we can love another. If you have been through trauma, any trauma or abuse, it is extremely hard to love yourself.  I. Get. It.  I have struggled for years with this and still do.  I need to listen to positive music, books and or podcasts daily, every morning, just to keep my mind positive and fresh and focused on the day ahead.  I also have positive affirmations and words all over my home office, over 50 actually!  haha…

Lets get to work

Good morning, and Merry Christmas. I wanted to share a tip on goal setting before New Years.  I read a lot!  And attend as many self development and business seminars as my budget allows, as well as take many courses on business. And the one thing all the books and seminars have in common… They all tell you to set goals! Set daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, annual goals and 5 year and beyond goals. But all of that can get overwhelming when you’re just starting out. I have read and swear by Lindsay Teague Moreno and her book…
