Why Failure Can Be Okay

Welcome to this week’s blog post! I hope you enjoy and leave feeling inspired!

Raise your hand if you have ever failed at something. Raise your hand if you have ever used failure to push yourself to succeed.

I’m sure all of us have experienced failure in our life. But the question is, what do you do after you fail? Do you just quit and give up? Of course not. I used to always think failing at something meant that I was a failure. But that’s not even close to the truth. Failure is just a part of success.

For example: I’m pretty sure running up a mountain is difficult. You may stumble across rocks and fall in the dirt. But, falling forward still counts as progress. A fall with get you closer to the top. You see, obtaining success is difficult. You may encounter different setbacks and difficulties. But, even if you fail to overcome those obstacles, you’re still one step closer to success.

Failing at something just shows that you are on the road to success.

Failing and using that as motivation to work harder is okay. Failing and giving up is not okay.

Next time you fail, don’t get so down on yourself. Most people won’t even try at something for the fear of not being able to succeed. In order to succeed, you have to fail ❤

    The Importance of Spring

    Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post. I hope you enjoy!

    Short Quotes for Spring - Restore Create Renovate

    Hi guys! I hope y’all had a great week! In this post, I am going to be talking about spring and the change it brings. How is it already spring?! Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive emails every time I upload a new post! Enjoy 🙂

    New Beginnings

    Spring represents new beginnings, renewal, and change. This season literally means a fresh start.

    So, why are you still thinking about what happened or didn’t happen in winter? Maybe you weren’t active, weren’t productive, or weren’t successful in winter. But, that’s ok! Forget about last season and focus on this season. Don’t dwell on every single mistake you made in winter; it’s over and done with!

    CHANGE

    Maybe, you don’t want a fresh start and change. Change is hard, but also necessary in order for you to grow as a person. Sometimes it can be easier to stay in the same place and keep everything the same. But what’s the reward of doing that? You don’t gain anything in your comfort zone. This is your sign to allow change to come onto your life and not fear it!

    “Nothing changes if nothing changes”

    I love that quote because if you want something different in your life, you’re going to have to change something!

    Comment your favorite part about spring ❤

    I hope y’all enjoyed this week’s blog post and feel inspired! See you all next Sunday! Have an amazing week and continue running up your mountain.

    Hard Work

    Hey y’all! Welcome to this week’s blog post. I hope you enjoy and feel inspired.

    Hi everyone! How was y’all’s week? I have had a GREAT week because I found out that I made my high school’s varsity cheer team! I’m soooo excited 🙂 In this week’s post, I am going to be talking about hard work. Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive an email every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

    “Hard work is the formula for success.”

    There are no shortcuts to success. There are no elevators to success. There are no secrets to success.

    If you want to succeed, you have to work hard! It’s easier to be lazy now, but in the long run, you’ll be so thankful that you put in effort. Working hard will always pay off. Work ethic, perseverance, and commitment are the only ways to get ahead.

    Think about a goal you have then ask yourself this question: “Am I doing anything to achieve this goal of mine?” Maybe your goal is to get an A on your test. Well, are you studying and preparing for the test? You want to get stronger? Well, are you working out? Work hard for what you want!!

    MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

    Since summer 2020, I had a goal. My goal was to make varsity cheer. I wished to make the team, but I also worked for it, Every. Single. Day. I went to practice Monday-Thursday, and on Saturday’s, to improve my skills. I stretched and did different drills every single day. Trust me, there were A LOT of days I didn’t feel like it doing it. But, I knew how amazing I would feel if I worked hard and succeeded. So, I pushed past my laziness and persevered. And, I succeeded.

    “Would you rather suffer the pain of discipline or the pain of regret?”

    You many not want to work hard right now. But, don’t you want to succeed later?! Do your future self a favor and work hard for what you want! ❤

    I hope you enjoyed this week’s post! I’ll see you next Sunday 🙂 have a great week and continue running up your mountain!

    My Guide on Ways to Practice Self Love

    Hey everyone! Welcome to this week’s blog post. I hope you leave feeling inspired!

    Hi guys! How was y’all’s week? In this week’s post, I am going to be sharing my guide to having the perfect self love/care day. Make sure to subscribe to my blog so you can receive emails every time I upload a new post. Enjoy!!

    Some self love acts you can do are…..

    -Journaling

    I think a great way to get your mindset in the right place is to journal. The journal above, I really recommend, and you can find it on Amazon.

    -Drink your Water and Fuel Yourself

    Drinking water and eating will make you feel so much better. It’s so important to make sure that you are drinking enough water and eating nutritious meals.

    -Affirmations

    Go to the mirror right now and say that you are AMAZING! Seriously, go do it!! It is game changer.

    -Do Something You Love

    Whether it’s exercising, watching Netflix, or gardening, try to do something every day that you enjoy doing. Don’t just work 24/7 and do nothing you like. It’s important to live a life that you look forward to living! ❤

    -Smile

    Smile, it’s important 🙂

    -Meditate

    Meditate on all of the good, everything you love about yourself, and things you’re grateful for. It’s a great way to clear your head and get a thankful heart.

    -Be Present

    Don’t think about the past and don’t worry about the future. Way easier said than done; I’m not the best at this :(. But, it’s important to be present. Think about today, not yesterday or tomorrow.

    I hope you enjoyed! Comment how you like to practice self love!!

    REMINDER: Love yourself always. ❤ You’re amazing. I’ll see you next Sunday! Have a great week and continue running up your mountain.
