15 Perspectives to Change Right Now! | Positivity | Success | Motivation

"Perspective: noun, a particular way of viewing things depending on one's experience and personality." 

I think we all have certain things we automatically just say are impossible or unrealistic. Like speaking in front of large crowds, traveling across the country, or even starting a business. Having negative perspectives on situations like these can cause us to sabotage greatness before we've even given it a chance to begin. I believe the first step to going for the things we really want in life is to change how we view our circumstances. So, here are 15 perspectives to change right now! 

1. You need to try to make everyone happy
2. Failure is the end of it all. 
If we begin to think of failure as a form of practice for the bigger moments in our lives or our careers, instead, of the end all be all; we can then take what we've learned from those failures to create something even greater!  
3. Self doubt
4. You'll never pay your debt off 
Dave Ramsey, That's all I have to say for this. Look him up he will change your life.

5. If, someone did you wrong you have to hold onto old grudges 
When we hold onto old grudges the only people we are really hurting is ourselves.
6. Caring about what others think of you 
7. Worrying about the past
8. Worrying about the future 
9. The belief that the grass is always greener on the other side
I'm going to be honest, I think I struggle with always thinking the grass is greener, the most. I am one of those people who loves to plan everything in detail. I often find myself so busy planning for a future with greener grass, that I forget to water the grass I have in the present moment. 
10. Hate
11. Spending = Happiness. 
This one was challenging for me to learn, I have always loved shopping especially online. When, I started saving and paying off debt I remember the moment I realized that overspending was actually hindering my dreams more than anything. I went and did the unthinkable... I canceled my amazon prime membership. To some people this may seem silly, but it really made it inconvenient for me to shop online. I started to realize how much I had depended on a new package in the mail to bring me joy. 
12. Negative self image
13. That you are not good enough 
You are enough, you were created beyond enough. 
14. Judgment of strangers makes you better than them
15. The mindset that your dreams are impossible
We are all human, with flaws and imperfections but we also all have unique skills and attributes. Learn what makes you different from the crowd, and use that to your advantage and make it happen.  

There you have it, 15 perspectives to ditch! Try to remind yourself that you are capable of doing anything you set your mind to and that once you can get out of your way that's when the real change can begin. I know that realistically we can't get rid of all of these perspectives at once and that some days we will still struggle with believing these things. If that is the case for you, start small. Try to just ditch the first 3 on this list. Leave positive sticky notes on your mirror, listen to inspirational podcasts, and surround yourself with people who add value to your life and that know you bring value to theirs.

I'm Back! | Where I've Been and What's Next

Hi everyone, oh my gosh it's been almost a year! I apologize for the impromptu hiatus. This last year has been crazy but I'm ready to get back to doing what I love; writing content about natural living and getting to know all of you!

So what happened? 

Life, life happened. I don't want to sugar coat it by saying something like I was soul searching or backpacking in europe the last year. I'm just going to be honest with you natural babes, I got busy with working a full time job, taking care of the house and finding time to spend with my family. But a year has passed by and I realized I haven't really been working on my personal goals. I had lost touch with myself and what I felt my purpose was in this life. 

What does this mean? 

I started to self evaluate my life and look back on my past; to remind myself of the things I felt were vital to my joy and overall happiness. A few keys aspects kept passing through my mind but ultimately I just kept circling back to the concept of being free, nomatic, and sustainable. The dream of being able to work for myself and create content that inspires others to strive to live a natural life and seek their own truth. 

What's next? 

So I'm back, ready to align my personal dreams and goals with reality! I plan to write here as much as I can about my health and wellness journey, family, DIY's and much more! Please comment below any content you would like to see me create or any topics you would like me to cover.
