Gems from Paradise--connecting women with themselves and their worlds

How Nike Got It Right

How Nike Got It Right
"Just Do It!" Nike is onto something there. These words have become ever so powerful and now I'm applying them to my own life. I'm taking on the mantle this year to simply get stuff done, even if I am a bit late to the game. A dream or goal without execution will remain unfulfilled. Often what stops us from moving forward are those false beliefs we hold. Join me as I kick them to the curb in order to better serve you!

The 5 Second Rule

The 5 Second Rule
The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins is life-changing! And it's an easy concept to understand that will get you thinking about who you are and where you want to go...and it will take you there! It holds you accountable in an easy, but powerful way and it's kind of like a fun personal challenge. You are accountable only to yourself and that is as it should be! I hope you enjoy the post. Please share with me if this philosophy changed your life as well. :) 

The Miracle Worker

The Miracle Worker

Have you ever been deeply moved by a work of art? I have. The movie, The Miracle Worker, was about two people magically connecting. We saw them learn from each other, grow together, and help improve each other’s lives forever. The things and people we connect with make us who we are, and ignite in us an energy of confidence, power, and identity. Let the world see you!

Did you know that March 13th is known as Jewel Day? As if I needed another excuse to drool over jewelry! Jewelry is often associated with a special holiday, occasion or memory.  What came to your mind when you heard it was Jewel Day?
