Confidence Training Wheels

Guest post by Marysia Wójcik Six months ago, I traded in my steady salaried job with benefits to start freelancing full time as a writer and editor. I gave notice at work, said goodbye to my colleagues, and outfitted my new standing desk with a small plant and some office supplies. I’d always wanted to do something like this, and I figured that giving myself a fresh slate would give me the energy and motivation to make the most of this…

Finding Inner Peace and Self Love

Finding Inner Peace and Self Love

Guest post from Chanesia Harper of 1 Special Cookie: I have always felt that I loved myself. I made sure to do things that interest me like shopping till I drop. I wasn’t aware that I had more to learn and more love to give to myself. It took me ending a 6-year relationship to truly learn about me. As I started the healing process I went through several emotions: sadness, anger, self-doubt, blame, depression and confusion. More than anything I…

Ok, I was looking at a lot of the recent blog posts and realized something. It’s been pretty serious stuff.

How to Overcome Fear

How to Overcome Fear

The last few days I have been thinking a lot about fear. It used to be something that I dealt with on a regular basis. I didn’t realize it at the time, but looking back I would definitely say that I struggled with anxiety. Maybe you can relate. I probably should have talked to a counselor at that time, but I didn’t. I just silently struggled with it day in and day out. And, while I most definitely wouldn’t say…

Want to Experience Life Changes? Take Some Responsibility!

Want to Experience Life Changes? Take Some Responsibility!

Okay, today I want to talk to you about something that drives me crazy. Partly because I have wasted a lot of my own life with this issue and partly because I can’t stand watching friends and family do the same thing. There’s a lot of people out there wondering how to make the life changes that they want to see in their life. They’re asking themselves “how do I take control of my life” or “how do I change…

Sharing Your Dreams – Should You Do It?

Sharing Your Dreams – Should You Do It?

The other day I was helping my daughters create “dream jars”. I gave each girl a mason jar and they decorated the lid to help us keep them all separate. Once the jars were ready I gave them scraps of paper and told them to write down their dreams. It could be anything that they wanted to accomplish, do, see, experience, or have in life. In my head, I was imaging all these amazing things that they would write down,…
