SFB Motivational Mondays: Quotes, Mantras and Songs for Inspiration, motivation and more.

Posted on: August 15, 2017

Hi Loves!

Happy Monday! Can you believe it’s August already??!! How did that happen, the months are just flying by. I know it’s been some time since you last heard from me. I took some time for myself, to re-group, re-center and re-evaluate a few things for the blog and just with myself. I can’t stress to you all enough how important self-care is, I’ll be talking about self-care in a separate post. But it’s important to always take care of yourself in all facets. Whether it be physically, emotionally, mentally, whatever the case is, do you and be good to yourself. Being good to yourself and give yourself and your body the love and care it needs. It’s not only important but it good for your overall health and of course your soul as well. Just something to think about.

 

Anyway, here are a few quotes, mantras and songs that keep me going throughout my days. If ever your feeling down, lost, undetermined, unfocused, unmotivated find meaningful quotes, music or even mantras that will help you through your days. Working out can be a great source of release as well. Great stress reliever as well as a mind clearer. Plus, it gets those endorphins going and those happy, positive vibe radiate out of you. This can also do wonders for you as well. A breath of fresh air and getting outside is a great thing to do for yourself. It clears the mind, and helps you re-center your thoughts.

These quotes, mantras and songs have done wonders for me and I hope they can do the same for you. They help me get through those tough days, challenges and any bumps I may be facing at the time. They help me stay positive, keep focus on what’s important, motivate me, inspire and keep me staying determined always. For me, quotes, music and certain mantras have helped me get through a lot of my darker times and moments in my life. I also lean on the support of my amazing, loving husband, family and friends. Having a strong support system is also crucial to help you get through those tough times. But know you are never alone, and we all go through it in our lives. Just remember we will all get through any challenges, obstacles, struggles, bumps, hurdles that life throws at us. Another way to help you get you thru your days is always staying positive and optimistic. I can’t stress this enough. When you shift your mindset, and just give out and spread only positive thoughts and vibes it can do wonders on your overall attitude on life and any challenges you may be facing. I know this isn’t always easy at times, we are human and we can falter sometimes and have moments of doubt and uncertainty within ourselves. But we must try and create and believe in ourselves and the positive energy we possess. We all have it in us, we just need to harness it, spread it and believe in it. Anything is possible, just remember that.

Lastly, another great way to stay positive and help you through anything is the power of prayer. Turning to God or your choice of worship can help keep the momentum and positivity going for yourself. Don’t underestimate the power of prayer, God is always listening and watching. He will always send a sign and listen to our prayers. God is good, I truly believe that.

Here are my favorite quotes, mantras and songs that keep me going: 

 

I hope this help you all. Remember you are not alone. We can all share and learn from one another. Please share your ways to keep yourself motivated, inspired, empowered and determined. I love hearing from you all and I love how we can inspire and empower one another.

As always thanks for reading, following along and supporting the journey!


SFB Monday Motivation

Posted on: June 12, 2017

Hey Loves!

Happy Monday! It’s a new week, it’s time to get out there and take on the new day and what the week will bring. I want to start engaging with you more, and motivating and take you along my journey. Just as I continue on my path and journey, I’d like to take you along with me keeping you motivating and staying on course. Every week, we can help each other and motivate one another. No matter what your goals are, remember to change your focus, remain optimistic and stay positive. We will have our set back and failures, but remember you can alway get back on the horse and try again. Life isn’t a marathon its a sprint, and we are the ones in control no one else. I never said the journey would be easy but I did say that the journey would be worth it.

In life, we will face challenges, obstacles and hurdles. But it’s all part of the journey and experience. Remember to say “I can” instead of  “I can’t.” Because you can, no matter what anyone says, you can. Remember you will always have haters in life, let them. Everyone will have an opinion, everyone will judge, let them. Why? Because, they are just projecting their own insecurities and flaws onto you, because they don’t have your strength, will and determination. Plus, think about this, if you didn’t have any haters, you wouldn’t be doing something right…. In some way, shape or form, deep down, they are inspired by what you do, but because of their own insecurities they choose to hate. Why hate when we are all on working towards something, aren’t we? They choose to be negative instead being positive don’t give them the satisfaction. Don’t waste your time on the haters, don’t lose sight of your goals, keep the momentum going. Work hard, stay focus, and always be humble and grateful for all everything. Be thankful for this life you have and the life you have created. You only have one life, be good to it and it will be good to you. Take a deep breath, and enjoy everything that life offers. Enjoy life’s moments, don’t let a moment pass you by. Time doesn’t stand still, it just keeps going faster each passing year. So live in each moment that takes your breath away.

Lastly, trust and believe in your path. Trust and believe, you are on this journey for the right reasons. Make all the hard work count. Do everything with a passion and purpose. I guarantee you, it will all pay off and be worth it in the long run.

Candi for a Cause

Posted on: October 24, 2016

I’m a huge supporter and fan of inspiring and empowering others however I can. This is one of the reasons why I joined the Chloe + Isabel and opened up my own C+I business and boutique.

Chloe + Isabel is a jewelry lifestyle brand empowering the next generation of entrepreneurs through our innovative social retail opportunity. A real sisterhood that has definitely empowered me in so many ways. I’m proud and happy to be part of the C+I family. With it being “SFB Motivational Monday” I wanted to tell you about our Candi for a Cause collection and what it’s all about.

Back in the Spring of 2016 we launched our: #Candi for a Cause collection.  The collection  benefitted the cause ” I AM THAT GIRL.”Helping girls turn self-doubt into self – empowerment. Which is what Chloe and Isabel is all about and something I strongly believe in. I love meeting fellow #Girlbosses. It’s truly inspiring, when we can empower and support one another. Remember we all have goals, dreams and aspirations let’s come together and empower one another. Here’s a quote that a friend passed along to me: “Girls compete with each other, Women empower one another.”

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, our Candi for a Cause collection will benefit the Breast Cancer Foundation.  Did you know? 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. The numbers seem to be growing each year. It truly devastating, but with your support and help, maybe we can help those in need and beat the odds thru early detection test and education. It would mean the world to me if you would support the cause.  I’ve lost close relatives to breast cancer and know people near and dear to me diagnosed with it. Help me, help them and many others and let’s take a stand against cancer.
