It takes courage and guts to be who you really are. It takes courage and fire to be who you really want to be. No matter what your goal is, only the courageous woman will come out unbruised, unmoved, and unbreakable.
What is peace? Is it relaxing in front of your television after a long, stressful day? Is it going to sleep at night knowing that no one is cheating on you? It can be a number of situations, depending on the woman. The work happens when we learn how to tap into our inner peace during the storms of life.
We will never be true to who we really are, or live out our best life until we begin to view fear as a tangible movable object. It's going to surface, it's your job to acknowledge the feeling and move it our of your way.
Some famous person once said that women can no longer complain about men until they learn how to select better partners. Some other not-so-famous person once told me that the two most common downfalls of women and men are finance and romance.
#Thisis30 tackles what a healthy, mutual relationship looks like.
Are you living a fulfilled, purpose driven life? Or are you unhappily punching in to a dead end job every day? The key to career satisfaction is finding or creating that gig that resonates in your soul.
You're either viewing the glass as half empty or half full. You're either getting better or getting worse. We tend to lean towards the grey area, but some things are meant to be black and white.
I have found that I am much happier when I view my world from a positive place. I try to see the best in people, opposed to thinking negatively. And I tend to wonder, what's the best thing that can happen, instead of thinking of the worst case scenario. I believe that these practices help me send and receive positive vibes.
The goal of #Thisis30 is to help women find their happy place. Often times we rely on others to give us that jolt of joyful glee that we yearn for. The secret is finding that glee within yourself. We must welcome each day with happy thoughts, feelings and actions.
At times we find it easier to love others more than we love ourselves. I have found that my greatest joy comes from those moments when I truly accept my beauty, my imperfections, and my shortcomings. We like to express self-love when things are going right, we must learn to accept ourselves during the times things are going left.
Mainstream media would like for us to believe that we are not healthy if we do not have a sculpted six-pack or buns to rival a video vixen. I have found the greatest pleasure in yoga and other strength/meditating routines than anything I have tried in my thirty something years.
The key is understanding that being healthy is a total body experience. You can have a six pack with a foul soul. You can have the perfect ass, with an ugly heart. You can have chiseled calves and a toxic mind. Being healthy is about cleansing your body, your mind, your heart, and your spiritual being.
Society and our past/present circumstances have conditioned us to be standoffish and guarded towards other people. As we grow older, new friends are harder to come by, and old friends seem to drift away into their own lives. However, we must try to allow compassion to guide us when dealing with others. It's easier to judge, mistreat, and criticize others when compassion is not at the core of who you are.
When was the last time you did something for the first time? When we were younger we were so eager to grow up so that we could do whatever we wanted...right? Unfortunately for a lot of us, that means doing the same thing over and over. We don't make time for fun and adventure, which make our lives a routine snooze fest.
It's time for us to take back our excitement and child-like wonder. It's time to be alive.
It's an exhilarating feeling to be around like-minded women who can uplift you, celebrate you, and check you. Yeah, sometimes we need our girlfriends to set us straight when we have veered off our path.
Friendships must be nurtured just like any relationship. Many women forget to nurture their friendships. They forget that it is a give and take. It is a beneficial relationship when both parties understand how to be a friend.
