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,

Hey guys, it’s Erin! Ok so listen: inspiration, motivation, and just generally feeling good and having faith isn’t a constant; it’s totally fine to have ups and downs and freak out occasionally. I’ve had a rough few weeks which actually really surprised me. Here’s why: I was so excited to quit freelancing to solely work for myself and run Sweet Success Society and my equestrian blog full time. The team got all fired up with plans for expanding Sweet Success into a bigger,

Hello! It’s been a crazy few weeks – we have been busy creating amazing things for our new membership site: The Society – invaluable resources & community for driven women with big dreams. I cannot even begin to explain how amped up we are about this. With 5 girls building their best content and getting super fired up, this is just beyond. It’s high vibe. It’s diverse. It’s educational. It’s inspiring.

It’s fucking exciting.

Forgiveness. We’ve all heard the word before, but do we truly understand the meaning of it? Do we really know how to forgive in a way that’s healthy for us? What are we supposed to do when someone has hurt us in a way that feels unforgivable and won’t apologize? How do we navigate the difficult times when forgiveness seems completely out of the question. And finally, do we truly understand the impact that choosing not to forgive can have on our own well-being?

Let’s be honest- we’re not always telling the truth about how productive we are. Admit it- you probably spend ten hours or more per week watching TV, right? Probably another five with email?

Yikes. It’s embarrassing just to think about. That’s why I started tracking myself- I was way underestimating the time I spent on non-productive tasks.

If you’re a business owner or just a busy person in general, it’s important to understand that there are many different tools that you can use to keep yourself on top of all your responsibilities.

I’ve never been someone who particularly enjoys exercising in and of itself. Sure, I’ve found activities that I’ve enjoyed that just so happen to also provide exercise (I’ve always loved dancing, for instance), but I’m definitely not some sort of fitness guru by any means! My journey with fitness has been a struggle, particularly in the last year or so. I’ve struggled to stay consistent with anything I was doing, which resulted in not getting desirable results.

Life in your twenties and thirties can be confusing. One minute you’re on top of the world, and the next it can feel like pretty much everything is crashing down. I always thought a quarter life crisis was something you had once, like when a middle aged single dad goes through a mid-life crisis and buys a yellow Porsche and takes up tennis and maybe also joins Tinder. Turns out though, the quarter life crisis can strike any time,

Building a life you love isn’t just one thing. Usually, it’s finding a career you’re seriously passionate about, figuring out how to make enough money to do everything that you want to do without stressing over finances, finding someone you love to share your life with, surrounding yourself with awesome friends that support you, and having the time, money, and means to do all the things you like to do. When you put it down on paper like that,

Do you ever have one of those moments where it feels like work is your whole life? As in: you haven’t attended any non blog related social events in months, you talk to more people on Instagram and in blog comment sections than you do in real life, and you have to tear the phone out of your own hands so you stop building your Pinterest boards at 1am? Today, while hanging out in my favorite blog &

If you’re ready to give up, that means you’ve already taken a very important step – you’ve made the leap, taken a risk, done something big! To feel like giving up means you have to have started something already, which is HUGE. It’s also the most important thing to remember when you get to a point that makes you feel like throwing in the towel; at some point in time you wanted to do this,
