Imposter Syndrome Is So Limiting | EP. 31
Hi Besties! Something so many people ask me about is Imposter Syndrome. And I am here to tell you... I don't have it. 
Nope, not this girl. But I know a lot of people struggle with this. So here is my take on it, how I have kept it away while going through my own growth and essentially a whole new life! Basically it comes back to the habits I have instilled in my life that have kept Imposter Syndrome at bay for me. Imposter Sydrome is preventing you from living the life you want and deserve! Let's go!

Where To Start With Daily Meditation And How It Can Help You Become That Dream Version Of Yourself | EP. 30

Hey Besties, today's episode is a little different... I am obsessed with morning meditations. It really does wonders for my brain and mental health throughout the day. I use meditation to set myself up for success across my four quadrants (mindset, soulset, heartset and health set)

I seriously think meditation and visualization is a secret weapon. It helps you create your future and become intentional about your actions. It's a habit that I've built to help me work towards being that dream version of myself. And a lot of people tell me they want to do meditation but don't know where to start or how to do. So I'm sharing this with you to use at any time or to start your meditation journey!

Good For You | EP. 24

Hi Besties! This episode comes from not only my favorite song of 2021 (Olivia Rodrigo heyyy!) but the meaning of what is *really* good for you and how it helped bring me a new and healthy perspective.

This episode will help you figure out what is truly good for you, and to make you really think and consider how your friendships, relationships etc impact your life. We'll also talk about becoming more aware of the consistent negative or toxic environments that we place ourselves.

Most importantly, I want to give you clarity in the next steps to take to create a healthy environment for you and the person you want to become! Consider this a challenge to think about the choices you make, how you have previously thought about making them and the way that you actually WANT make decisions.
