Fighting with Kindness

Sometimes an argument can end in two ways: you can fight to prove you are right or you can choose to put your differences aside. The latter is the harder option. Choosing peace over winning is a learned skill. 

I am not advocating to be a “push over” or not to stand up for yourself. I am instead saying to choose your battles. You do not have to be right every time. Sometimes you can agree to disagree and sometimes you can say sorry first. 

Talk a deep look at yourself and your fighting style today. When you argue, do you want to be known as kind or right? 

Graduation Update 

Cutest. Party. Ever.

My cake + cupcakes turned out GORGEOUS and were actually enough to feed everyone! 🙌🏼

We had a DELICIOUS street taco bar for my grad party! Fiesta! 🎉

Even my puppy had a good time!

I got a massage, mani + pedi, and my hair cut and styled the day of! It was super relaxing and special. I loved every bit of it.

Finished product!


I felt beautiful and had a great day! My family was supportive, my friends were a blast, and most important… I GRADUATED! 🎓❤️

Graduation Reflection 

Guess who graduates in THREE DAYS? 👊 That’s right! This girl right here! 🌻

Never did I imagine people would be coming to ME asking questions about getting their degree or careers in counseling! I’m “little ole nobody.” 

Right

You’ve probably said it before.  I did

Week after week. 

Month after month. 

Until finally I decided to ignore or better yet reframe those negative thoughts to something positive

I AM ME.

I AM STRONG.

IT WILL BE TOUGH, BUT SO AM I. 

I CAN DO THIS. 

Ever since I decided to get out of MY OWN WAY, nothing has stopped me. 

Some days have been harder than others, but every.  single.  one of them have been worth it to get to this point. 

This is the point in my life where I show that insecure, doubting girl from 2.5 years ago that SHE DID IT! 🎉
