THE HOW AND WHY OF MAKING FRIENDS AS ADULTS

Mondays With Meg: The HOW and WHY of WOMEN FRIENDSHIPS

I asked for you to help me decide what to focus on for this very special friendship episode of Mondays with Meg and you PACKED my inbox! I had so many responses, I think we’ll need to make this an ongoing conversation on Mondays with Meg.

We’re starting today by tackling one of the topics that was sent in and we’ll come back around to friendships again in a few weeks to keep up the conversation!

 Rachel sent in an email asking:

“Finding time for rewarding, juicy friendships alongside a full-time job, three-year-old daughter, husband, working on my personal goals like writing a book, etc. is a challenge. It feels like I only scratch the surface with friends most of the time. I feel like I need tons of quality time with people to really feel like I'm in a fun groove with a friend, but of course, I don't have the time for that like I did when I was in my early twenties with little in the way of responsibility. Help!” 

In this week’s Mondays with Meg video, we talk all about the how and why of making friends as adults and I give you some very practical steps for walking this out, no matter what season you are walking in as an adult.

Please take a few minutes out of your day to watch this week's Mondays with Meg video. Then, click the button below to download your very own Free Friendship Circles Worksheet... I created it for you to help you discern who your inner circle friends are in this season.

Mondays with Meg is a LIVE video series every single Monday morning at 8am CST. Every week we will explore a different topic in a conversational, authentic, way to help you start your week of well and with intention.

Intentionally having quality time with friends is so important and beneficial that you shouldn’t just find time for your friends, you should make time for them.

5 CONFIDENCE HACKS TO STOP YOUR NEGATIVE SPIRAL

MWM 5 CONFIDENCE BUILDING HACKS

For me, confidence is the ability to be yourself in any situation. It’s about authenticity. It’s a deep knowledge and an acceptance of who you are and where you are in life. It’s having faith in the fact that whatever happens, you will be ok.

Please remember that it is your birth-right to feel happy and at peace with yourself in this world. This means that if one person is able to live with confidence then we all are—confidence is not the exclusive right of a privileged few, it’s available to us all if we know how to find it and keep it. Confidence isn’t necessarily a permanent state (we all get knocked down from time to time and we all wobble) BUT it is something you can learn to generate and return to time and again. These hacks will help you grow in this area.

Confidence is like a muscle. It’s something that needs training consistently over a period of time, using these hacks regularly in order to build your self-esteem. Like going to the gym on a consistent basis to keep your body fit, you’ll need to practice these hacks regularly in order to keep your mind in shape and to keep building this new muscle.

5 confidence hacks to stop your negative spiral

1.  Stop comparing.

2.  Focus on the truth.

3.  Be positive.

4.  Do what you love.

5.  Surround yourself with safe people who will lift you up.

I talk more about each of these hacks in the video below.... be sure to take a peek! *wink

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR TIME BETTER STARTING TODAY

HOW TO MANAGE YOUR TIME BETTER STARTING TODAY

Oh friend.... 

I see you..

You’re juggling a million projects, people, pets, appointments, deadlines and demands — and every one of them is screaming for your attention.

The good news about having too much to do is that people trust your ability. (YAY YOU!)

The not-so-good news is that it’s stressful — and sometimes absolutely impossible — to stay on top of it all.

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR IDEAL MORNING ROUTINE

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR IDEAL MORNING ROUTINE

I don’t know about you, but when my morning starts out late and chaotic — overslept, not prepared, rushed out of the door already late, etc — the rest of my day tends to reflect that same chaos.

Anyone with me on this? 

The tone of your morning absolutely sets the tone for your day.

CHOOSING JOY (EVEN WHEN LIFE IS HARD)

CHOOSING JOY (EVEN WHEN LIFE IS HARD)

You and I are faced with thousands of choices every single day. While it might sound strange to think of intentionally making the chose for JOY a priority, in some moments and circumstances, that can make all the difference. 

In this morning's Mondays with Meg live video, Rosemary Radford of Garden Key Co. and I chat very honestly about what joy is, where it comes from, how to fight for it and how to make it a priority in your life daily to choose it.

TAKE THE SELF CARE CHALLENGE WITH BOHO BERRY

TAKE THE SELF CARE CHALLENGE WITH BOHO BERRY

I know it can be challenging.... I know it can feel uncomfortable.... I know it can be hard to change this habit.

...but I promise that if you just begin THIS WEEK to make this a priority to even just give yourself as little as 15 minutes devoted entirely to filling yourself back up, you will get the momentum started to begin to make this a new habit.

And I want that so much for you (and your loves) because you are soooooo WORTH IT!

5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TODAY TO BEGIN LIVING WITH INTENT

5 THINGS YOU CAN DO TODAY TO BEGIN LIVING WITH INTENT

If you’re anything like me…. there are waaaaaay too many things I want to accomplish each day. My task list is ever growing, and most days, the minute I check one thing off my list, I need to add ten more tasks to it.

Ugh. 

Many of my coaching clients are work-at-home-moms or women running their own creative businesses from home (like me). For me, It is crucial that I am intentional every single day in how I spend my time on the tasks that I choose to do in order to keep my people, my pups, my home and my business running well.
