Embrace Your Gift

8

April 22, 2014 by Katie

Last night in my small group we talked about how each person is given a gift to help their community. How everyone is different and that it is our uniqueness that makes us valuable to society.

Embrace What Makes You Unique

Sometimes, as a society, we value certain things over others, thinking that some people’s talents are more important than others. But the president of your club, the top salesman in your office, or even your favorite author, movie star or athlete, aren’t more important than anyone else.

Some people may work in the background, while others are in the spotlight because of what they are contributing. However, none of this really matters because the whole wouldn’t function without each piece.

Here’s an example: remember those school plays when you were younger? Sure, one or two people are the “stars,” but the are other actors, there is the director, there are musicians, there are people who made the set, people who run…


DoTerra

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend (or just regular weekend)!

If any of you read Annette’s blog, Fitness Perks, then you’ve probably already heard about DoTerra Essential Oils. If you haven’t, then I’m going to share with you today! I recently became an Individual Product Consultant for DoTerra, which means that I share DoTerra with friends and family (you all are of course my friends!) as well as get rewards for sharing.

I was inspired to try DoTerra after Annette, who is also a consultant, kept raving about them and how they’d help many of my issues, such as stomach problems, fatigue and anxiety. DoTerra is a great company because they use 100% certified pure therapeutic grade (CPTG) oils, which means that…

April 18, 2014 by Katie

I saw this questionnaire on Carrots N Cake yesterday and I thought it had some entertaining questions. I’d love for you all to answer some in the comments!

1. What are you wearing?

Black wide legged work pants, a colorful tank top and a champagne colored cardigan. And tan ballet flats.

2. Ever been in love?

Nope. Unless you count my BFF, Molly!

Happy Thursday!

1. A few of you asked about this picture from yesterday’s One Word Wednesday. Well, I was walking Molly on a gravel path and some other dog chased a couple geese who flew in the air right next to me. I saw them coming straight at me so I ducked. Molly decided to bolt. Since I was bent over, she was able to pull me straight into the ground. My poor knees still look a mess.


One Word Wednesday

I’m so glad I got a great response to yesterday’s post, thank you to everyone who commented! Now on to a bit of a simpler day, One Word Wednesday!

So what is One Word Wednesday? In Lindsay’s words:

The only rule of “One Word Wednesday” is that you must label your pictures with one word. And it MUST be the first word that comes to mind (and yes, you can put two words together, hashtag-style if need be). If you can’t play by those rules, you probably should just sit this one out. Yeah. That’d probably be best.


6 Things You Shouldn’t Have To Justify

People spend a lot of time these days worrying over what others think of them. Maybe this isn’t new, but it’s certainly not the best way to go about life. Yes, it’s important to treat other people well and of course we all enjoy being liked, but when your choices, from small to big, are dictated by the impression you might leave on others, then that’s a problem.

I know I’ve written about comparison before – how I used to care so much about what other people thought of me – but I have learned over this past year how important it is to focus on myself and my journey. A friend of mine last night talked about how she is very frustrated with her job search and how she had no idea that this would be her timeline (aka still not having a job after almost a year of searching – sound familiar?!).

It made me think of myself and how in almost a month it will be a year from when I graduated law school…

1. Tonight my committee on the Junior League is hosting a “House Walk” to raise money for some improvements to the house. I’ve been stationed in the basement… which means I’ll be standing in a creepy cold (semi finished) basement all evening. Wish me luck.

2. When I was home I found this growth chart that I’d totally forgotten about in my closet. I seriously can’t believe I was ever that short!

3. I bought a Groupon for a month of unlimited yoga and finally started it last night. I went to a class with a friend of mine and was glad I did…


WIAW–Breakfasts Lately

April 9, 2014 by Katie

Happy Wednesday!

For today’s WIAW post, I thought I’d share some of the breakfasts that I’ve been making over the past couple of weeks to bring in to work with me. I get up early to head to the gym, come home and shower, get ready and by then I really just don’t have time to sit down and eat. I’ve found that bringing my breakfast to work makes things a lot easier and a few other people on my floor do the same!

If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head on over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, as well as the other participating bloggers!
