Four years ago, when my boyfriend and I started dating, I sat him down and told him the blunt, honest truth. I told him, “I cry. A LOT.
And I mean a lot.
I cry when I’m upset, I cry when I’m happy, I cry when I stub my toe, I cry when I’m stressed. Sometimes, I cry just because I haven’t cried in a while. But I need you to realize, just because I’m crying does not mean that the world is going to end. Do you understand and accept this?” Luckily for me, he did. Crying was part of the contract.
Because I am proud to say that I recognize I am a highly emotional person. And I own it! And if you are having difficulty in day-to-day situations because of your disposition, or you feel guilty for being emotional–breathe a sigh of relief, because IT IS possible to succeed as a highly emotional person. Even if you don’t consider yourself emotional, but you spend lots of time around people who are, there are tips and tricks that you can use to navigate the ups and downs of your relationships.
Age – something we all yearn for when we are little and despise when we are older. It’s this magical label that automatically tells others how long we’ve been on this earth…and leads to misinformation about what we are capable of accomplishing. How do you

Are you “Giving Constipated?” Here’s some “Giving Activia”…
Giving is powerful stuff. So much so, that I challenge you to try to name an influential moment in your life that
associated with the concept of giving in some way, shape or form. Come up empty? I sure do – giving goes right to the core. Giving is relatively simple, yet leaves such a lasting impact. When my sister was little, she used to tear her food into smaller pieces so she would have “more” and then she would give half to me. She loved to share everything –Barbies, candy, stickers – you name it. It was just so simple to her. It amazes me how children can wholeheartedly embrace the simple logic of giving, yet it takes years of strength and energy to remind ourselves of this lesson as we get older.
Are you sitting back right now and thinking, “Brittanyyyyy…I know I
be in a giving mindset, but how? What’s the point?” Hey, I don’t blame you. Sometimes it’s just plain hard to give to others. Or maybe you’ve been out of the habit of giving for so long, that you’ve forgotten how to give and how simple it can actually be. Here are some surefire ways to get your giving gears in motion.
I’m a tech gal. If you can’t find me drooling over something I discovered on Pinterest, I’m probably creating websites, reading blogs, watching videos – you name it.

As much as a good tech cleanse can rejuvenate your system, there is no use fighting against it – especially when it comes to putting your dreams into action.

can create your very own mini mobile vision board to take with you on the go!
