I am so in love with this post Nath! I've been going through something similar... First, I was a tomboy growing up and really never learned how to "do" my hair and accessorize and all that fun, girly stuff that my older sister did. I wore makeup in high school but I never really dressed up. Jeans, a fitted tee and my sneakers. I did get into dressing up a little more when I was first out of college... but when I started working for myself and bouncing between bill-paying, contract jobs, I don't know, I stopped prioritizing my clothes and went back to casual.
Lately, with all my personal and business focus changes, I have this deep urge to start expressing my style through clothes and accessories. It's like it's been buried deep down for awhile and my girly side is ready to come out! The haircut perhaps? ;)
Thanks for sharing this. I'm excited to see how we look in Mexico! xo

@AshleyGwilliam I totally hear you on trying to be prepared so you can get it right. I've definitely done that! I have learned that it's so much better to just start moving yourself forward and getting things started, then figuring a lot of the details out as you go. If you're a perfectionist planner (like moi) you'll spend MONTHS and even YEARS planning everything out, and that's just wasted time!
And yay! It all starts with awareness and small steps towards eliminating the distractions. A friend just shared a trick with me called "chunking." You make a list of all the things that are MONEY PRODUCING that you need to do... then you spend 45 solid minutes working on those things (set a timer). Then take a 15 minute break to walk, watch TV, read something, snack, whatever... and dive back in for another solid 45 minutes. You can repeat this a few times. Sounds to me like an amazing way to plow through the important things AND allow yourself some distraction. :) xo

@JakiBent That's a really great strategy Jaki! Thanks for sharing. Sometimes I end up with a window full of tabs that I want to read... but I hadn't thought about scheduling time just for that! xo
@helenkkopp YES!!! Just DO them without planning it out first. Plans are great, but it's really important to just start doing so you can break that bad cycle! :)
@LizLongacre Ooooh, super smart trick! I do that too and it's a great way to avoid the chance to distract yourself. And thanks for keeping me out of the hidden folder! ;D xo
@ColbyOhlhausen Thank you Colby! I really appreciate your comment, being present is SO important to living a fulfilling life. And yay for getting your business going! Also love this, "You don't want to starve yourself of information, but binging is just as bad." xo
Such great information and resources! I love to leave comments for the social aspect. It's such a great way to connect with new people and be involved in a conversation around a good post. :) Thanks for another awesome post Nath! xo

@LizLongacre Hahaha! I can see that. Yes, getting out of your head is the way to get things done! Tackle it one thing at a time! xo
@yourgreatlifetv Yes! You're so right Bernardo. Appreciate you sharing your thoughts! xo
@NicoleSmootTengwall Hi Nicole! I'm so sorry to hear that you went through such a rough time, but I AM glad to hear that you've since grown and that things are better. Gratitude is a HUGE part of the process. Learning to live in abundance rather than scarcity makes it easier to be positive and HAPPY with your life! Good luck in your business endeavors and let me know if I can help in any way! xo
@creativekitty13 Hey Jen! LOVE your comment. "Take things as they come and roll with them... in the end it will give you life experience and character!" Such wise words! xo
@NeuralCorrelate You make a great point! If you have different sides to your personality then this is not a determining factor for you. I do think it's important to ask yourself why you act differently depending on the situation or people. If it's because you're trying to fit in or people please, it's inauthentic. If it's just another part of who you are, awesome! Appreciate your comment! xo

@heatherlyone Love this comment Heather, thank you for sharing your story. I know that's got to be hard, but you are right that it's just strain on your life to stay friends with people like that. And I do know what you mean about people who are a hot mess! Even if you're not involved with helping them out, they can cause you a lot of stress and distraction! So glad to hear you've got more positive, awesome people in your life! xo
@empowerulc Thanks Pete! Appreciate your kind words and comment. :) Haha... I have been wanting to do some video posts for awhile, but I'm waiting for a new computer so that you all don't have to listen to my computer's fan while I try to talk over it. ;) Writing is my best mode of communication though!
Sophie, I always say, "Love it or leave it, but don't try to change it!" :D I love your attitude and stance on the subject. I couldn't tell you're dyslexic and I love your comments! My best friend is always honest with me and that's why I love her. Why would anyone want friends that aren't? Thanks for leaving a comment and sharing your own experiences. xo
Absolutely. It's completely normal to outgrow people in your life... whether it's friends or in a relationship. And you do have to be very careful that you're not keeping people in your life who are holding you back. Sometimes those people will try to sabotage you because they feel inadequate or like you're moving up and away when they're stuck. If you find that you have to sink or shrink to hang around these people, they are no good for you. I've stopped hanging around with people that I feel require me to be less of who I am. It's doesn't mean they're a lesser person, it just means that they're at a different level than I am and I want to keep moving FORWARD! Sending you lots of love! xo
Thanks Nichole! You're so right than it can hurt at times, but in the long run, it's absolutely worth it. :) Love you! xo
Thank you! And I love you comment, "This advice is NEVER wrong." Being yourself and being true to you is always the right thing to do and will yield amazing results in life! Thanks for leaving me a comment! xo
I hear you Liz and completely understand that. It's unfortunate when family isn't very supportive of the real you, but I understand not wanting to push them away and I think that's a choice everyone has to make for themselves. I'm glad to hear the rest of your life is full of positive and supportive people! So honored to know you and to be a part of your life! xo
You're so right Nath, it's definitely something that takes lots of practice and baby steps, especially if you're really far off course! And yes, we're all constantly growing and changing and that means we'll always be working to stay true to ourselves! :) xo
Thanks Karie! xo
Awesome, so glad to hear it Alisha!! You're awesome, so I'm positive that you're going to start attracting some amazing and positive people. :)
Love this Noelle! Thank you for your comments, and CONGRATS on expecting your first child! How exciting. And it's crazy how life can change. :) You're right, I'm sure they were great people, but they just no longer fit into your life. xo
YES! Such a great point Heather. The same is true for me! :) Thanks for the comment! xo
Thanks Karie! I'm totally planning to write a book in the VERY near future. :) xo
