In the same way that we think about the beauty of the seasons of the year, it’s important to understand and respect the seasons of our life.
Fruition; attainment of anything desired; realization; accomplishment.
Fruition was my word of 2017. At the beginning of the year, I was determined that the next twelve months would be filled with defining moments for me. It would be the year that all of the hard work, time and effort that I’ve been putting in would come to life.
When I think of home, I think of peace. For me, creating a space that feels like home is essential, especially when you are living on your own. Having always valued aesthetic, I was ecstatic when I found my new apartment that I’ve settled into in Jávea. I'm excited to give you a peek inside and show you a little of what my home is like.
In the past 5 weeks, I’ve moved to a new city, moved into a new apartment, dove into a new job with an amazing team, traveled to speak twice at an international conference, went back to Murcia for a weekend, traveled another time… but to Madrid for the LMDES event… and the list goes on. All of this in 5 weeks, while also trying to find time to settle in, explore the area, keep a business running and making time for me. Sounds like a lot right? Well, it was.
How often do you long for something new or something different than what you’ve been used to but your not willing to do what scares you? We're conditioned to believe that everything that has happened to us in the past, has to be the norm in our everyday lives. But what if you started saying yes more to the things that terrify you? To the things that make you challenge all that you know and all that you've learned throughout life.
Over the past years I’ve spent most of my time working with, getting to know, interviewing, connecting with and being inspired by phenomenal women. I’ve also spent a lot of time truly getting to know who I am as a woman and what that really means to me. We are all moving through our own journeys and I wanted to take time to share some important lessons of womanhood that I’ve learned over the years.
More often than not, we continuously compare ourselves to others instead of focusing on our own personal journey and the growth that comes with it. With social media being a prominent factor in our everyday lives, it’s easy to get caught up in comparing our reality with other people's highlight reels.
How we start our days is one of the most important things we can do. It's time to share why morning routines matter and how you can make the most of your day before heading into work or getting down to working on your business. Take a look at your current routine and think about how you can maximize it even more.
As each year comes to an end, I take the time to look back and reflect on all that has happened. Quite often it's hard to see the big picture as your living the day to day but when there is a big milestone, like a new year, a birthday, the beginning of another season... taking the time to record your wins, lessons and growth is essential.
