I love motivational inspiration, as a matter of fact, I am hungry for it. 

Be it; food, wellness, fitness, fashion, 
lifestyle, decor or career
I am tapped in to so many inspirational people and I love to soak up all the goodness on a daily basis. Today these tips from Jenna Kutcher really resonated with me so I thought I'd share them with you. If you're not following Jenna, I strongly recommend you do so. She is my 'girl boss' inspiration! Not to mention, she is so relatable, funny and sweet!

1.) When you find a gap (in your industry, in your family, in your life) maybe you're the one who is supposed to fill it! It's easy to see that there's a need for something but hard to be the one to take action. Chances are, if you're wanting something, someone else is too.. maybe your purpose is to fill that gap! 

2.) Take care of YOU. You are your biggest asset and your greatest obstacle. When things get busy, it's easy to put your health at the bottom of your priority list. But it's true, friends, if you aren't taking time to fill yourself up, it's impossible to pour into others. Go on a walk, take a nap, draw yourself a bubble bath, meditate, read a book - anything to just be still with yourself. Give yourself grace, serve yourself a little, too! It's not selfish, it's necessary. 

3.) Connect in real life. It's easy to feel like you're "connecting" with people thanks to social media but what are your conversations looking like when you are face to face with people (assuming that you actually are in the presence of other humans daily!) For me, it looks like a daily workout where I actually get to talk to people and be a part of the community. It's way to easy to hole ourselves in our offices, to pretend we are a still fostering real relationships, but today take a few minutes to send a meaningful email, voice text, to pick up the phone and call someone, or better yet, grab some wine and sit down with someone you love!
