It seems like common sense and straightforward: In order to stop making excuses, you have to recognize that you’re making them in the first place. Excuses are excuses, right?

You’d think so. But time and time again, our minds play tricks on ourselves into thinking that, well, these excuses are far more important than they actually are. We tell ourselves that instead of excuses, they’re REASONS. And there is a big difference between those two words,

Ahh, it feels so wonderful to be back on the blog!! This past week Erin and Daynna opened up about their successful mindset breakthroughs and journeys, and it’s truly been so inspiring and uplifting that I’ve hardly thought of anything else since. (Watch their videos and see what all the buzz is about over on our Facebook page when you get the chance!)

Who else is so excited that summer is HERE?

We get to enjoy sunlit outdoors until 9pm, wear our bright colored dresses, lounge by the water, decorate our homes with flower bunches, and get more involved with community activities and events. Summer evening get-togethers become the new norm, we suddenly eat a lot healthier, and restaurants are chosen for their patio aesthetics. The kids are out of school and everyone’s itching to make the most of this favorite season!

Happy Monday! As you settle down for the start to a fresh week (perhaps with an extra cup of coffee), let’s reflect on how we spend our weekday lunch breaks. Obviously, every company structure varies from the next and each office setting is different—but overall, can we agree there are some consistencies?

Like Consistency #1: We need to give ourselves a lunch break.

Yes, I’m talking to you who has 3+ credit cards with more than last month’s gas on them.  I’m talking to you with a credit score that makes you cringe. I’m talking to you about a subject we hate talking about… but is so necessary to discuss and—what’s more—take immediate action for the betterment of your future.

I feel like I need to give the full disclosure that I’m not a financial consultant (for those of you who know me,
