Organizing My Life, My Business And My Health

I will admit that I am not an organized person, although I try hard to be. I keep a clean home and have designated places for every item in my home, and yet my place often looks "well lived in." This also seems to be a theme in my business. Although I am very passionate and motivated to create a successful business, I struggle to keep organized and on top of my goals, which is why becoming more organized is one of my missions for 2019. I understand that having an organized lifestyle and environment helps my mind feel less cluttered and my body feel healthy. I notice that when my home is in shambles, my attention for my business is scattered. If I don’t plan my fitness goals and meals for the week, I make really poor choices. Even though I know better, I will grab whatever is available when I’m tired and hungry after a long day. This is why I’m determined to get organized while keeping my long term goals in mind.

So, where to begin? I’ve recently teamed up with “The Content Planner” which is a boss babes dream planner. I’ve been able to plan my current and future business, meals and life goals. I’m obsessed with the stickers, the well planned themes and the ideas to create goals in advance. If you don’t have a killer planner, you could also use your calendar on your phone or on your fridge.

It's also important to eliminate all of the useless things in my home. This includes the clothes that I haven’t worn in 10 years and the art pieces I "kinda like." It’s time to de-clutter and get organized in all aspects of my life! Who's with me?

The Power of Judgement

Judgement. It’s such a powerful feeling that can hold you back from so many wonderful things that you could be accomplishing. Judgement can be felt from your family, friends, strangers and yourself in many ways.

I recently had a dream where I was feeling uncomfortably judged by a friend who has a lot of opinions. The dream felt very real and I woke up feeling angry and frustrated at myself for allowing this judgement on my life to affect me. Mind you, this wasn’t a real life encounter, it was a dream. When I thought about the dream, I realized I was manifesting this reaction due to past situations where I felt judged by this person. I also came to realize that it’s up to me to feel confident about my life, my decisions and my journey.

Being a blogger/influencer, I often have moments where I second guess posting a picture or information with my viewers due to the fear of judgement from people. It’s incredible however, how the posts that I'm most hesitant to share seems to have the most impact on others. Often these posts are the ones that have connected me with more people who, rather than judged me, found common ground and support in what I had to say.

Now I could ramble on and on about examples in my life but moral of the story is that judgement can hold a power so strong that it can stop you from reaching for the stars, living your most authentic life and developing your most personal growth. Always go for your dreams, your desires, your passions. Dance like no one is watching, sing like no one is listening and try to live every moment without the trappings of judgement. Live YOUR life, for YOU. Now go get it. 

Love, Michelle
