HOW TO CULTIVATE A DAILY ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

On this episode of Mondays with Meg, we shared all about how to easily cultivate a daily attitude of gratitude. I shared 3 things you can begin doing TODAY to Make Gratitude a Life-Changing Habit:

A Gratitude Journal. Write in a small journal and each day about 5 things you are thankful for.

A Happiness Jar. I first read about this from Elizabeth Gilbert. Write down the happiest thing that had happens each day and date it. Fill up your jar!

Grateful Picture Board. Each day, print out a picture of something you are thankful for and tape it to the board.

HOW TO BUILD COMMUNITY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE

HOW TO BUILD COMMUNITY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE

Having a sense of community has been shown to be linked to so many positives: creating sense of belonging,  providing a physical and mental health boost, and even lowering crime rates within communities. With benefits like these, we could all stand to strengthen our community ties.

Rudy’s Flower Truck is St. Louis' first mobile flower shop. It is a mobile flower shop offering a unique bouquet bar you can find all over St Louis on any given weekend, and it is also available for event rentals. I gifted my bestie Amy two flower deliveries from Rudy’s or her birthday this year… so much fun!

Talking time and space to know the ins and outs of who you authentically are at your core, aligning the rest of your life to who that is, and refining and growing your life through this lens is how we all are able to step into our own unique magic and give this world exactly who we were created to be and become.

JUST BREATHE: FINDING FREEDOM THROUGH FEAR

JUST BREATHE: FINDING FREEDOM THROUGH FEAR

Fear traps us: It prevents us from growing. It prevents us from contributing to other people. It prevents us from living happy, satisfied, fulfilled, free lives.

Fear is the antithesis of freedom: it is, by definition, constricting. We often hold on to things because we are afraid to get rid of them: we fear losing those things we think we might need. We don’t just fear the loss of these things, though—we fear the loss of what these things might mean to us in some distant, hypothetical future.

18 BEFORE 2018

Today I’m super excited to share MY 18 goals I want to complete before 2018, and I’m challenging YOU to play along. You have until the end of 2017 to complete all 18 goals on your list.
