In the past few months, I have been hearing a word to describe myself by people I know or meet, and that word has been “confident.” I never was one to think of myself as a confident person, so to keep hearing this made me step back and see how much I have been embracing that confidence.
Coming from having no confidence in myself, always worried about my looks, or If I was doing something right, wondering if I was letting someone down? I just had a lack of self-confidence, and it was one of the main factors as to why I had such a negative mindset.
Gathering confidence in my self or the task I was involved in or relationships in my life I was in was my first step to learning to love myself and respect myself.

It took me years to really implement self-love into my life; I struggled with anxiety and depression and allowed that to take over my life and felt below worthless at times. I don’t want anyone to ever feel that way; it’s not pleasant, and honestly, life is too short. I wanted to put this out to the universe to anyone just needing guidance or a reminder that you are worth it. You are beautiful, and you can live happily, you can live your best life.
It took me over 10 years to really “master” the practice of self-love. It took a lot of hard work and will for you as well, but hopefully, with these tips, it won’t take you 10 years to master.

If you are a regular around here, you know by now how I am all about self-care and listening to your body when it needs a break.
I had a moment this morning where I was going to skip a morning workout out of pure laziness and it made me mindful of what my body wants vs to what my mind wants. How can you tell if your body needs a break or if your mind is playing tricks on you?

We can all get caught up in limiting beliefs, and I find by setting a daily affirmation will help guide you with a positive mindset. With this mindset, it will help guide you and motivate you to work towards your goals and to remind you of your worth. Whenever I get caught up with a negative mindset ( it can happen, Im, only human) I like to remind myself of my affirmation that I set, and it puts that smile back on my face, changes my mood and helps me get back into gear, and I set myself up for success.

Maintaining a positive, healthy mindset has become my top priority in the past few years. Throughout my life, It has been a work in progress. When I look back to where I started to where and who I am today, it fills me up with so much pride and continues to inspire me to keep working at becoming the best version of myself. I know that the life I am creating for myself will only improve as long as I don’t take steps backwards and keep up with a happy—positive, healthy mindset.
So let’s go back to the beginning when I was not so positive because some of you are probably thinking “Ok Chelsie not everyone just wakes up loving life and has so much positivity”, and your right and I know this because I use to be this person for a very very long time.

Anyone who is really close to me will fully understand my love and passion for my hair. Im, not one to be caught up in the appearance of my hair or always checking myself out every opportunity I get, but I have a lot of respect and love for my hair and I will tell you why.
My passion for my hair strives off of pride. Pride in myself for overcoming a lifestyle that was threatening to my health. It was a time in my life where I was fragile, broken, lost and unhappy. I was suffering from my mental health more than ever as I was so caught up in a lifestyle fueled by drugs and alcohol that lead me to have no perception of what day of the week it was. I had spent a few weeks sleepless and decided that I needed a haircut, I have no idea at this time what exactly was going through my head but I thought it would be a great idea to cut all my hair off to just above my ears over a three-day span. Just imagine that for one second… I was so embarrassed and ashamed I would wear hats to hide it. When my hair started growing back I felt beautiful again, valued and had started feeling respect for myself. It was the beginning of the transformation to who I am today. I take pride in my hair and keep it healthy as a reminder of my respect and how hard I have worked to not get to that point again.

Like many, the past couple of weeks gave really impacted how I see everyday life. It has been brought to my attention just how much privilege I have for being white and as I am grateful for my privilege I am hurt that having this privilege exists.
It saddens me that after all these years people get judged and bullied for the colour of their skin. it is so wrong and we need to do better.
Friday was Juneteenth which is known as freedom day or emancipation day, it’s an annual American holiday that commenced June 19th, 1865, the ending of slavery. Here in Vancouver we had a march in unity and as much as I wanted to be apart of it, I couldn’t escape work but I was lucky enough to catch it on my way home and it was such an amazing sight to see, a powerful feeling listening to all the chants and the passion in everyone’s voices. It gave me hope and put a smile on my face to see everyone coming together to create change, to express community values, morals, and wants. Let’s keep that up! Continue reading “Black Lives Matter”
As you know by now I am all about self-development. I have put my focus on energy and how I absorb the energy and react to it. I wanted to share this because if I didn’t stick to setting intentions over the past week while my mental health was testing me, I don’t think I would have made it through successfully. before I started implementing my daily intentions I was feeling so overwhelmed with a feeling that I had no purpose or wasn’t growing because the reality was I was growing and I did have a purpose but being caught up in a negative mindset had me seeing life through a strong fog. So fast forward to today where I had spent the last several months working with a coach to create a healthy, positive mindset. Sometimes we just need a little push or a handhold to get us through our fog. So that’s what brings me to setting intentions and how these keep me in line with myself, goals, and maintain a healthy mindset Continue reading “Setting Intentions”
I have really been focusing on energy lately, what motivates me, what keeps me productive, what minimizes my anxiety, what makes me happy. It is SO easy for me to become distracted, unmotivated, overwhelmed and I would feel like I was trapped in a bubble but could still see the outside world so clearly. I hired a coach to help me stay on track and my head clear from negativity. It’s true what they say… when you feel better you have more energy, confidence and happiness. SO in one of my sessions with my amazing coach, we discussed Non-negotiables and how they set the right mood for your day and give you a positive mindset. Continue reading “My 5 Non-Negotiables”
Keeping a routine is very important to me and I feel the moment I don’t everything seems to fall out of place and I don’t feel structured.
With all that’s going on in the world right now and living in isolation for a month, I wanted to share the daily routine that helps me keep up with my goals and feeling like I still have a structure to my life. I am the type of person that falls into ruts easily and has a harder time getting out of them than in so again this is very important for me to stick to during these times so I don’t get stuck in a rut of being unmotivated.
