Bad Hair Day? Jazz It Up

What have I been up to?

Of course I've been busy writing and being a mother and wife. But I must admit, sometimes I just don't feel like doing my hair. I know, I know that's awful! Nevertheless it's the truth and many of you feel the same way. No matter how busy I am, you won't catch me leaving my house looking like... "Who did it and Why". I have a pet peeve and that is that I absolutely refuse to leave my house looking a mess. A baseball cap just didn't work for me and my wardrobe. I needed a head piece that would actually compliment my out fit as an accessory for my bad hair days. It's an honor to share this product with you. You'll soon realize that any woman on the go will learn to love my headbands. They have literally become a MUST have in my collection. My online store will be opening Fall 2014.  More Info...

Working Moms: Staying Focused

There are countless distractions throughout the day but staying focused is possible. We all have busy lives and sometimes we look crazy trying to juggle so many task. Multi-tasking is second
nature for most women, but it can also become our worse enemy. It can cause you to stretch yourself so thin, making it difficult to notice any progress in your efforts. We can find ourselves working, working, working, but nothing has changed other than your stress level. Yes! As your stress increases, you adapt it as your new normal. Stress becomes your way of life and so do your bad habits of creating distractions.

After coaching many clients about their career goals, lack of focus is among the most common road blocks that stand in their path to success. Have you ever wondered how some people accomplish so much with their time? I use to ask myself that question all the time. Then it dawned on me that all of us have 24 hours in a day. It wasn’t that I was wasting my time, I was merely mismanaging it. That means that I was doing a little bit of a lot every day. Gosh was I wrong. I had no idea that I’d actually be more productive if I focused on one task at a time. That should have been a no brainer right? Not when it comes to women who are used to multitasking incorrectly. If you give your energy and undivided attention to one task at a time, see if you notice a difference in what you’re able to accomplish every day. Of course I’m not suggesting that you discontinue doing multiple things. However it wouldn’t hurt to do one of those things for an extended period of time.
            If you’re struggling with staying focused here are some things that I’d encouraged you to try: 
  • Plan Your Day- In order to do this properly, ask yourself, “What are the things that I absolutely must accomplish in order to feel satisfied and productive?”
  • Prioritize- Consider putting the things that you dread doing at the top of your list of things to do. Often times this eliminates or decreases procrastination.
  • Main Focus- Decide what you’d like to spend the majority of your time doing. Instead of multitasking all things. Choose one thing or project to give your undivided attention towards. Consider spending 2-4 hours on your main focus.
  • Limit Distractions-   Distractions are everywhere, however becoming disciplined in this area could potentially free up several hours of your day. Email, personal phone calls, Facebook, television, and other guilty pleasures could be costing you crucial time. And for most of us, time is money.

The strategies mentioned may not be for your line of work, but is intended to be used as a guide in implementing whatever is useful for your particular purpose. Stay focused and you will be on your way to becoming the best you.

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous; is not proud; is not conceited; does not act foolishly; is not selfish; is not easily provoked to anger; keeps no record of wrongs; takes no pleasure in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.

 1 Timothy 5:1-2 - Encourage…older women as mothers.


John 19:25-27 - Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.

Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and you shall keep my Sabbaths: I am the LORD your God.
