How-To Have A Growth Mindset

Here’s the cold hard truth: Many women have grown up being told their talents are fixed and limited. It can be a huge battle to believe in ourselves and remove the idea that we do not have the ability to be great. I’ve read multiple books, attended workshops, and listened to the podcasts of some of the most empowered women in the world. I realized every single one of these successful women had 1 trait in common – the growth mindset.  Bottom line, it’s the mindset that sets successful women apart from all others. In essence, there are two types of mindsets we typically

Sweet Song Dedicated to Every Girl – Tear Jerker

SYML is the solo venture of Brian Fennell, who was previously part of the indie band Barcelona. SYML released his eponymous debut album on May 3, 2019 through Nettwerk Records.

Fixation With Celebrities

My advice to people, but especially kids, who are invested in celebrities, be they actors, musicians, bloggers, youtubers, authors, whatever, is to keep your distance. No matter how happy their content makes you, no matter how strong the pull of a special interest/hyperfixation/obsession might be, it’s important to step back every so often. So many people are depressed, anxious, and feel less than because of their fixation on people who they have never even met. Do you find yourself following them on all forms of social media? Do you follow their friends and family, who might not even make content themselves? Do


Love, marriage, kids — life doesn’t follow a set timeline. So don’t expect it to.

life doesn’t follow a timeline.

When things do NOT go according to the timeline that you made up for your life you feel like a failure or like you are missing out. Even worse – you feel that your time has passed. Creating a timeline for your life is not the issue – The problem is

Simple Routines That Help Keep Me Healthy

I almost didn’t want to share my morning and night routines because they might overwhelm some women or might seem too simple for others. They are routines that I have had for a couple years now and have been tailored to meet my goals. They have helped keep me mentally and physically healthy. I didn’t want to share them because I once remember looking at another woman’s morning and night routine and feeling like I could never do what she did. As if what I was doing was not good enough. When you read my morning and night routine remember
