One of the reasons why I enjoy the summer is because the warm weather usually reminds me not to take myself too seriously. I give myself permission to let down my hair a little and have fun. The number one mantra that I live by is that life is already hard enough why make it harder. This goes for the decisions that I make as well as the effort I make to maintain a heart of gratefulness. That gratefulness then translates to a heart of joy. Summer reminds me that even though tough days are inevitable the seasons change and the sun shines once more.

I know that this sounds very cliché. But finding ways to keep the sun shining in your life is important. I am a very introspective and can be very hard on myself most times. So I am always up for reminding myself to have a little fun and do the things I enjoy. Whether it’s watching reruns of Golden Girls every night, spending time with friends and family, dancing around the house or just living my best life…lol! We spend a lot of time focusing on what we can do better and how we can be better and the list goes on, but it’s just as important to live in the moment and enjoy it!
Before we all know it, the seasons will change and the cooler weather will come. So while it’s still warm outside live a little girl. I know you have purpose to execute and dreams to slay, but take this moment breathe in the good in your life, smile, laugh at the imperfections and find the joy in just living. I’m here to remind you that if you’re going to work this hard there has to be something at the end of it to enjoy. That something is life. Don’t forget it sis!
