Monday Motivation

Happy Monday everyone!
Here's your motivation for this week. So many times I've put myself down and held myself back because of past failures. Don't ever let that stop you. The past is the past, look forward and keep trying to reach your goals.
I had a rough past couple weeks, mostly because I was dwelling on one particularly bad day. Yeah, it happened and it sucked. But there's no reason to keep bringing down my good present thinking about the bad past.
Have a great week everyone!

Monday Motivation

Happy Monday everyone!
I haven't done a Motivation Monday in a little while, but I came across this quote yesterday and it really stuck with me so I thought I would share it today.
For a long time, my self confidence and belief in my abilities relied heavily upon validation from others. This is something that has taken me so long to break and I continue to work on it daily.
You don't need anyone to tell you that you are smart, pretty or worthy. The things others say about you do not define you. No one has the power to define what you are but you. You need to validate yourself and believe it.
I hope you're all having an amazing Monday and have a great upcoming week!

Motivation Monday

Happy Monday everyone! And Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian readers!

I wanted to share this quote with you all today because it really made me think. How many times have you dropped a project or big dream because you just didn't think you could do it? My biggest problem has always been that I second guess and doubt myself when in reality, I could most probably do it.

Anything worth having wont come easy, and maybe you'll stumble and fail a few times along the way, but don't lose that determination and confidence that you can achieve it. The only thing that can hold you back is yourself. Not failure, not bad luck, but you.

Believe in yourselves today, and keep working towards those dreams, no matter how big.

Monday Motivation: Being a Happier You


Hard to believe in just a few months it'll be 2016. I still remember coming up with my New Year's resolutions for 2015 and wondering if I actually came close to actually reaching any of them. Does anyone ever stick to their New Year's resolutions all year long?

Basically, my main New Year's resolution for 2015 was to be happier. And as far as resolutions and goals go, I think this is one that everyone should have for themselves. It's so easy these days to get caught up in constantly working hard, be it at school or at work, and not taking the time to check in with yourself and see how you're really doing. Are you really happy? Are you where you want to be? Do you enjoy your life as it is right now? Is there something you should be changing? And if it's something you can't change, maybe it's something you can learn to accept and maybe even love.

It's something I've been thinking about a lot more often lately. Without trying to sound too cliche or corny, we really do only have one life to live. What's the point of wasting it doing things we're not truly happy doing? One thing that scares the hell out of me is the thought of looking back at my life and regretting missed chances or feeling as though my life wasn't all it could have been. It really saddens me when I see people living for others; be it to meet their parents expectations, or for the approval of others, or giving up their on their dreams because others tell them it's not possible, realistic or a good idea.


I used to be one of those people. Always scared, thinking "oh but what will my parents think?" and maybe to an extent, I still do think this way sometimes. But I'm no longer basing my life choices and my happiness on what they expect from me. Maybe they'll be disappointed for a while but I would choose that a million times over living a life of future disappointment because I didn't follow my own dreams. Be it for a career, a relationship, a big purchase or big life decision.

Bottom line is, every once in a while, we need to check in with ourselves. Am I happy where I am? Is there anything I can do to be happier? Because in the end, only we have the power to change our situation and be happier. I've started doing little things just to reduce stress and increase happiness in my every day life. Make time for things you enjoy. Give yourself mental health days. Be kind to yourself. Laugh more; watch a funny movie, spend time with friends. Let go of the past. Forgive people. Don't make major life decisions based on other people's expectations or wants from you. Aim on making yourself happy and the rest will follow.

Summer Fashion Inspiration


                     




















I've been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately pinning tons of amazing summer fashion (and trying to resist heading straight to the mall to buy it all!). I thought I would share some of the stuff I've been loving lately and hopefully give some of you some ideas if you're looking for some inspiration to update your summer wardrobe. (You can follow me here on Pinterest to stay updated with the stuff I'm loving!)



   


Stripes, bold colours and aztec pattens have been so huge for me this summer. I'm also loving anything flowy; be it skirts, dresses or loose shorts. Feel free to look at My Dream Closet Pinterest board for more inspiration! Besides, though it might seems a bit late in the game for Summer fashion, right now is probably the best time to shop for summer clothes (hello, summer clearance sales, anyone??)





























What have you been loving in fashion this summer? Let me know!
