Top 5 Personal Development Books Every Woman Needs in 2020

As much as I’d love to claim that I’m a big reader, my reading progress so far this year (or lack there of) would beg to differ. I have yet to complete ONE book this year. It’s not because I don’t have time (because as we learned in this post we ALL have time), but I think it’s more so that I am less interested at this point in my life in reading for pleasure. Basically right now, if a book isn’t teaching me something worthwhile, I do not want to read it. I love learning from people’s writing because I feel as though I’m being personally mentored by someone who genuinely wants me to succeed. Although that is not ALWAYS the case, for the most part, a lot of the authors I’ve seen lately really have a desire to teach others things that it’s taken them some time and effort to learn. Through my writing, connecting and researching I have gathered a rather large list of articles, blogs and books that I desire to …

Living Life Unstuck

I think there’s a point in every young-ish adults life where they realize something critical. We look at ourselves in the mirror and realize that where we are right now, is not where we thought we’d be 5 years ago. For some of us this is an encouraging realization. Maybe you didn’t expect to be making as much money or to be married with children or owning your own business. If that’s you then congratulations! Keep moving forward in that direction, we need movers and shakers like you in this world. For others of us tho, this realization comes with some sadness and perhaps some anxiety. Maybe you’d hoped that by now you’d be living on your own, maybe you thought you’d be rid of credit card and school debt, maybe you thought you’d be working your dream job or maybe you thought that you’d at least be in a relationship if not married. I’m writing right now to encourage those of you who fall into the second category, myself included. I was reflecting on …

My 2018

2018 is coming to a close. It’s crazy right, I can still vividly remember celebrating the entry into 2018 with all of my friends and just like that, it’s about to be over. There are still two months left but I figured this would be a good time for me to look over the year and evaluate somethings. 2018 was a year. It wasn’t particularly good, or bad for me. I grew, I learned through mistakes, I was challenged and I struggled at times but all in all it’s almost the end of the year and I’m here and loving my life still. So, let’s do it, let’s review the year of 2018. I’m going to break this down into categories (because this is how my brain works). One category will feature accomplishments; things that I am proud of, positive changes and positive growth and the other category will feature things that need improvement; things I still need to work on, things I could have done better or things I simply wish were better. Accomplishments: …

Goaaaaaaaaal(s)

We all know how important setting goals is to personal growth and development. If you’ve ever set a goal, you know that setting a goal is the easy part. It’s the sticking to it that gives us a little bit of a challenge. Now, I don’t struggle with sticking to goals because I lack motivation or anything like that. Sometimes sticking to a timetable of what to do, when to begin doing and when to have it done can be a bit overwhelming. Confession: I am a perfectionist…well…a recovering one. So those things (having a specific time to achieve something) gives me a little bit of anxiety. But. There are ways to set goals that make setting those goals and sticking to them a tad bit easier and even a little exciting. I’ve started applying these to my life and I’ve been able to set goals, stick to them and actually enjoy the process and now I want to share them with you in 3 steps. Make them practical- Nothing ruins the momentum of a …
