Last week, I slipped and fell on the tiniest patch of ice. My knee was sore, cut and bleeding. To feel better I thought I would treat myself to a cup of coffee, but on the way I dropped my mug and it shattered...
When you're having "A Day" it's hard to feel better. We've already resigned the rest of the day to be a "BAD Day". Making matters worse, we complain to anyone who will listen about our "Bad Day".
If you're having a tough day and feeling bad, you've probably reached the point where you're focusing on the bad things that are happening. Thus making it difficult to be positive to those around you! Now, those negative vibes and "Bad Day" moods are being passed onto others, creating a negative domino effect.
Give yourself a second to feel it. Go cry in the bathroom at work for two minutes. Let that sh!t go! Then take a deep breathe.
Stop and think about something good that happened during the day or this week. Watch a funny video. Think about your lover. Get your mind out of the "bad day" vibes.
Get off that negative thought and on to something good. Change your feelings to change your day. It's not easy when you're feeling down, but I know you can do.
You are an amazing, beautiful person having an experience. It's up to us how we choose to react to those experiences.
Hint: Choosing positive will feel better. ;)

Raise your hands. You know who you are. I am too. ;)
I've tried to give it up before and it's so hard! Then I decided it's one of life's little pleasures, so why not?
I'm sure you know one or two Coffee Addicts on your gift list. Below are some fun and funky ideas that will inspire your recipient. I've included a range of options per your budget, plus a bonus DIY idea at the end of this post.
The Show Stopper: Chemex Pour Over
My kingdom for a pour over! You've probably seen these at your local coffee shop. I've even heard of some places turning this method into entertainment and educational coffee shop workshops!
As we draw closer and closer to the end of 2017, we start to look ahead at our 2018 goals, dreams and wishes.
It's also a time of reflection. Looking at those goals we had from the beginning of 2017. What we committed to and what may have fallen between the cracks.
Let's start there.
What were your personal goals for 2017? What did you accomplish?
What didn't get accomplished? WHY?
That is the bigger question.
Part Two in our holiday Gifting series! These are my favorite gifts-Easy DIY! They are fun to make and usually a bit cheaper but ALWAYS more meaningful.
This post of DIY gift ideas are heavy on the essential oils (since I'm addicted and have them on hand). Not your thing? Be on the lookout for the next DIY gifting post that won't be so heavy on oils.
Let's talk about some spa worthy bath products! These are always a hit with the women in your life who deserve a little "me time".
Super easy and extremely spa worthy! Get a big bag of Epsom Bath Salts (for multiple gifts). Some essential oils (or perfume oils), little glass jars and some food coloring. Mix up about 1 cup of salts, 2-3 drops of oil, and 2-3 drops of food color (depending on the color you want). Mix it up and carefully scoop into the glass jars.
I like lavender oil mixed with some blue/red food coloring to make purple bath salts. Try a citrus scent (lemon, orange) with yellow food coloring. Light green looks great for a eucalyptus scent and will help your recipient weather any winter cold.
