I used to be busy in my mind and physically a lot. I thought that's what I had to do to be successful. The last year+ I've realized that for me, that's not true. I'm actually way more successful when I take time to sit and reflect on what I'm grateful for. Sometimes it's sitting in prayer, sometimes it's just sitting in the quiet of my home or office and thinking about things. I'm really good at being able to sit in my thoughts and reflect. For me, it's been so important for my mindset and productivity. When you can sit and be thankful it breathes a whole new life into your day-to-day and your business. Is it hard for you to sit in the quiet or easy? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ : : #meditation #yoga #love #mindfulness #spirituality #healing #spiritual #peace #selflove #nature #selfcare #wellness #inspiration #motivation #namaste #life #spiritualawakening #consciousness #gratitude #energy #fitness #reiki #yogalife #yogi #zen #yogainspiration #meditate #awakening
HI, I'm Melissa and I love pizza. Fun fact I hate cheese but have to order my pizza WITH cheese and then pick it all off. Trust me, I don't understand myself either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ : : : #food #foodofinstagram #foodography #foodismedicine #foodshot #foodinspiration #photographerslife #photographersofinstagram #fridaynights #fridayfunday #fridayfeels #fridaynightfun #fruit #dessertlover #desserttime #dessertstagram #dessertoftheday #dessertbar #chocoholic #cocktailbar #cocktailhour #winestagram #fruir
When I did this Photoshoot in this store I didn’t own any plants. Now I own a house full. . I still think it’s crazy how I love plants now when just a few years ago I couldn’t keep them alive. Maybe I care more or maybe it just took a while to get my green thumb? . Thank you @rootadorned for having the best plants and experience! You are my fav! Do you have any easy/favorite houseplants you love??
Once upon a time I was a photographer. . I spent too much time going down the rabbit hole today looking at some incredible photographers work online. @meg_nlo I’m looking at you. I struggle with wanting to create like this again but feeling like I don’t have time. There is so much that has changed from 6 years ago to today in regard to style. So much of me has changed too. I was a educator and mentor over on @clickinmoms. I was published in magazines and online. I had a really good, thriving photography business.I’m not pining for the ‘what-could-have-been’, I’m searching myself for the creative outlet in me that needs to come out again. What’s weird is that I know how to take really good photos but most of the time I hurry up on my iPhone just to get something posted before I forget and then I look back and kick myself for not taking more time. I need to find the happy medium. Get out my camera again and just document. . Have you ever struggled with something like this? Excuse me while I go waste more time stalking photogs instead of working.
I’m married to a pilot. . We had fun at last night’s #bachelorpremier using Mark’s old airline uniform ✈️ . Tell me, do you have any front runners from last night? I’m liking Madison, Victoria F and Hannah Ann. Don’t get me started with the Hannah B drama from last night. I can’t even, because I’m so conflicted! If you watched what are your thoughts?
Hair fluff and bright red lipstick comin at ya! . Guys!!! I’m back from my two month long break. Today is my first day back in the office full force and DANG it feels good. Here’s the thing, I was feeling overwhelmed and tired. Not because I didn’t love what I was doing, but I was tired. And..... I had been mulling over this new idea for years and was having an internal struggle to actually do it. It was exhausting. So, I spent some time in prayer and realized that I needed to give myself a break. Like, an actual designated break and not feel bad about it. I mean, I did still feel kinda bad about it because I’ve been doing something every day for my business for the last 18 years. It was really, really hard to rest. I even had some episodes of “bummed”. You know, when you’re not depressed but you feel blah and cranky? That was me. I wrapped my identity around what I did that I forgot me. This time was needed. I fought it... hard. But it allowed me to see what I wanted and I’m so grateful for that. Can’t wait to share with you #allthethings but I the meantime, expect to see more of me around here. I’ve missed you!!
This year will be a big year for me and I’m super excited! Happy 2020 friends! I can’t wait to share with you what I’m working on!! What’s your year goals look like?
Bring it 2020. I’m ready for ya! This year will be incredible, amazing, fulfilling, life changing and filled with so much fun/friends/family. I’m calling it now! Let’s do this! How will your 2020 be? I want to hear!
