How to Change Your Life With One Simple Decision

how to change your life

There’s a constant battle inside me that often ponders about if I’m doing the right thing or not. A week or so ago, I texted my husband saying I was not feeling myself. Contrary to what Beyonce and Nicki Minaj sing, I’ve been struggling deeply inside. It may not seem like it, and I never let it show, but it’s been getting to me. Granted, since I came home, I...

How to Stay Positive When All Seems to Go Wrong

stay positive

We’ve all had those moments when we feel powerless against the universe’s dark sense of humor. When you see life happening for everyone except you, it can be hard to stay positive and see what good is out there. Because there is good in each moment, and you have to be the one finding it. These sorts of moments bring me clarity and a sense of enlightenment. While finding joy in...

The Power of Facing Your Insecurities and Dealing With Anxiety

dealing with anxiety

Lately I’ve been debunking a whole new side of myself. In the past few months, I’ve been dealing with very familiar and unfamiliar feelings all together. There’s a hard debate going on inside me, that I mostly keep to myself, but like to put out there. Not only as a way of unloading all this crap. But, also, as a way to figure if any of this happens to you...

20 Things You Might Not Know About Me, And…

20 things you might not know about me

That is absolutely correct! There’s a celebration going on throughout this day, week and month. I Life You turns 3! My baby can already talk, walk, stand straight and even curse sometimes. I don’t want to elongate myself on how proud I am to have been doing this for the past 3 years, even though recently it’s a bit on the quiet side. I’m working hard on bringing you the...

Nothing Like I’ve Ever Done Before

nothing like I've ever done before

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen a change in scenery and palette. After months of debating if I was coming home for my mother’s 60th birthday, on the last possible day, I decided to come. I crossed the idea off my mind for some time. It was a subject of great sadness to be missing another key moment in my family’s array. Her birthday was this past...

Facing Yours and Your Friend’s Life Changes

life changes

A friend’s wedding, July 2015. When you’re a teenager, most of your concerns go towards school, social acceptance or where to party next. I’m always raving about when I lived in my hometown and how amazing those days were. And, at the time, you aren’t, necessarily considering your future. You make assumptions that you want to grow up, do this and that. But by the time you reach the point of...

Managing a Hectic Schedule and Still Finding Time For Me

managing a hectic schedule

Last week I asked on Instagram if you guys wanted me to talk about managing a hectic schedule and still feeling invigorated. Some of you answered on the picture and others sent private messages saying yes, which was amazing. Thank you so much! (Again, I’d rather be writing content that you ask for). Ever since we came back from Portugal, going on 3 months now, things have been crazy busy. I...

How Can We Stop Comparing and Start Empowering Ourselves

stop comparing

We’ve all fallen down that rabbit hole. It innocently starts with a simple scroll down our Instagram feeds. Eventually, thoughts start to emerge in our minds. Why does she have that? Why is she there? Why am I here? It’s a fucking trap. But after all those feelings fade, we can agree how ridiculous it is. Meaning that it doesn’t make any sense that we’re comparing our lives to other people’s....

One Month of Sweat With Kayla – And Why I Started

Kayla

About a month ago, I started looking at old pictures of myself. Suddenly, it was 2 in the morning and I haven’t even gone through half. My friends and I used to take a lot of pictures. But one thing I noticed, that I hadn’t before, I was always chubby. I wasn’t necessarily fat, but I wasn’t healthy either. My weight fluctuates a lot, I get moments when everything is...

A Love Story – When All of a Sudden, Everything Makes Sense

love story

For those of you who know me on a personal level, know I’m not a person who shares a lot about personal issues. As I’ve told you here, it wasn’t until I actually broke up with my ex-boyfriend that people knew about it – including my parents. So, when I started dating my husband, back in 2010, we tried to keep it on the low. Not because we were even remotely...
