Monday Mantra: Authenticity Isn’t Perfection

Social media advice, or business advice, is not something you typically see here on GMG. Actually, this blog isn’t about me giving advice at all. Instead, it’s a place I share reflections on day to day life in a way that might help you reflect on your own day to day, too.

But here it is this week, social media—a topic that we could all stand to reflect on a little more.

Friday Digs

It’s the first digs of the year and I couldn’t be happier to say, Happy Friday to you and welcome you into the weekend. This weekend is a rare one with no plans, so I am looking forward to yoga, cooking, and downtime.

But first, it’s Friday Digs.

Winter Wellness Beauty Staples

Just over a year ago I resolved to cut out as many toxins from daily routine as possible – this included food, cleaning supplies, and beauty products. I am by no means perfect at this, but since then I’ve come to count on some healthy favorites that make me feel better about the products I interact with daily. Just as I laid out my winter wellness kitchen staples last month, today I thought I’d share my holistic approach to wellness in my beauty routine this winter.

Monday Mantra: Aint Nobody Got Time For That

If you’ve been a reader of this blog throughout the years, you’ll know that one of my biggest challenges in day to day life is to live for my authentic self while balancing my natural instinct of constant people pleasing. I’ve written about it here, here, and most recently here. After I published last week’s post there was an outpouring of readers who described struggling with the same thing.

Giving Up in 2018

First things first, it’s 2018, happy New Year!

In the third year of GMG I’ll be laying out more content, guided meditations, and tools for self-connection. I am so grateful for your readership and happy to share this next year of growth with you.

I know it’s New Year’s and not lent, but as I look into 2018, my resolutions aren’t to add more to my to-do list, instead it’s to give things up—especially when it comes to self-talk.
