Where is the Love Wednesdays: balance.

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday to all. 

In our busy lives and schedules, sometimes we can get overwhelmed by the amount of places that we all have to be at once. It’s hectic and without organization, we can truly go crazy. If you are in a relationship with someone or have a family, this can be a challenge as well. What can we do? Find a Balance.


Finding a Balance in our lives helps keep us not only sane but it gives a sense of stability. We have significant others, children, elderly parents, demanding jobs/businesses, meetings, down time with friends and so on. I recommend prioritizing and go from there. 

What are your priorities? 


In my life, my list is: Faith, Family and Career. My faith is my intimate relationship with God. I need that for strength as I battle Multiple Sclerosis, life set backs and guidance to name a few.

Family, comes first! Friends are my personal picked family so they are included. My husband and son comes first no matter what. They are my back bones and their happiness and loyalty means the world to me. Therefore, I can’t put them on the back burner or place things that hold No value over them and their Needs. Of course my extended family and best friends are next in importance because I love them and they are my support system. 

Career is important because it’s how we bring home the bacon lol. Rather it’s a 9-5 job or opportunities for entrepreneurship, what we produce are a representation of us. 

Sometimes when there are distractions or an imbalance of things in your life, someone or something can feel neglected. That’s the last thing that we ever want to do. So, set your own priority list and stick to it. Communicate your intentions and goals and I’m sure all will work 😊.  I hope this helps someone today that may struggle in their area of life.

Successful Gossip can motivate you

Good morning, happy motivational Monday!

We all know that Gossip isn’t necessary. We have our own lives to live and who has the time to care about other’s drama. What about successful gossip?

We went to school with a range of individuals and after 10+ years we say “where are they now?”. When I hear through the “grapevine“, that one of my former classmates are traveling the world, taking on big business adventures, own beautiful homes, I can’t help but to get excited. I get excited knowing that if they can be blessed with those accomplishments, that my blessings will come as well. 

Friends, there is no need to get jealous or envious when you hear “successful gossip”, let it be your motivation. Be at peace knowing that your time is coming.

Thanks for reading!

Motivational Mondays: can we ever get out of dreadful Monday’s syndrome?

Hi friends! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies and we will remember those who are no longer living.

After a wonderful weekend, people always have the feeling of “urg it’s Monday tomorrow”. However, I do know some who are eager to see Monday and they treat it as if it were Friday.  Is the anxiety of Mondays due to unhappiness at work? For many, this is probably the answer. How do we change that?

For some the answer can be as simple as quit your job. Even though the uneployment rate is steadily decreasing, it’s still extremely hard to find work and make the money that’s deserved. So many have anxiety to Mondays because of the frustrations that comes with going into the office. Some are not happy with the facility or colleagues therefore the mood is in all time low or they are on edge.

Another option is to change our congnitions and speak positive affirmations into the new work week. We can affirm:

  1. This will be a better work week.
  2. I’m thankful to have a source of income.
  3. Even if this is not where I plan to retire, I will use this as a stepping stool.

When we place those affirmations into existence, we begin to believe it and we will achieve it. 

I hope and pray that we all do get better with the “dreadful Mondays syndrome”. Rather it’s getting a new career, becoming an entrepreneur, or a change of attitude, let’s get it done. We have to bring our own sunshine wherever we go, we hold the key to our success!

Thanks for reading friends 😊

Feel good Friday (late): How others can inspire you to be a Success!

Hi friends! I’m so sorry for the late post. Yesterday, I honestly didn’t know what I wanted to write about and it was busy with work and baby boy having a little cold. However, after a good conversation with hubby last night, it will prompt today’s post. 

As you all know I have very strong views on circle of friends and their effect in our lives. I am a person who loves to hear success stories and I’m genuinely proud of my friends when they are winning. I have the attitude that if one wins, we all win. One of my friends, Arianne, started her own business called DayCare Rescue, LLC and had her first major contract with a client. You can find out more here: Daycare Rescue, LLC                                    I’m so happy for her and it truly inspired me. 

Friends, we have so much potential and a lot of times it does take that extra push to achieve it. When you have successful friends, you will want to feel good about yourself and be a success as well. Think about a time in your life where someone in your inner circle accomplished something great and then not too long after, the same happened to you. Didn’t you feel good? Truth is, no one wants to be that loser friend, so the motivation is real lol. 

Take the time that’s needed to invest in yourself, your goals and dreams. Take that leap and don’t worry about the naysayers. Just remember your “why” and you will be fine! I hope you all follow your dreams and passions in life. I also want to wish you a great weekend!

Motivational Mondays: sometimes you Do need a circle of cheerleaders

Hi friends! I hope you all had a good weekend. 
Today’s post is about needing a circle of cheerleaders. No, I’m not referring to athletic cheerleaders, career ones. They can be family, friends, colleagues or strangers such as a life coach. A lot of times we become too comfortable in our current situations and aren’t using our full potential to be a success. 
I suggest having that person or circle and you all can encourage each other. However, be very careful in your selection of these people. Make sure they want to see success for all, not just themselves. Also, pay attention to how they view your plans/goals because if they are being “Debbie Downers” that can be very discouraging. 
Do this friends and get to work! Lol. Do you have a circle? Mentor? Or life coach that is helping you head in the right direction? If so, please express the benefits of having that support. 
Thanks for reading. Please feel free to share with others.

Motivational Monday: do you invest in yourself?

Hey all, Happy Monday!

Today’s topic is: do you invest in yourself?

We all have dreams and goals that we would like to meet but do we invest in ourselves to achieve this? This can be career goals, finances, relationships or just personal maintenance. 

Why should we invest in ourselves? It creates positivity and growth. For example, if you are working to become an entrepreneur, investing in yourself would be attending workshops or seminars. When a person attends workshops and seminars, they are amongst others who are trying meet the same goal, you have networking opportunities and the ability to learn from those who are experienced in your skill. Those are all positive things to help guide your way to success. 

When you invest in yourself, you become a better you. People will see your confidence and believe in your dream as well. We all have skills and by investing in ourselves, we are taking our skills from good to Great!

You can do it friends, I believe in you.

Where is the love Wednesdays: no support from loved ones and/or friends

Hi all,

This is a topic that has been weighing heavy on my mind lately. I feel it is sad that when you are doing something positive or starting a new venture in life, those who are the closest to you aren’t as supportive as strangers. 

Friends, please don’t think that just because you do something that everyone has to respond all the time because they too, have lives. However, if you show support, it’s natural to want it back. Sometimes the issue is : people would rather support you when you are “on” meaning you already reached a successful peak. 

My advice to myself and to share with you is: believe in yourself. We shouldn’t wait on the validation of others to know we are doing something right. Not everyone will cheer for your success but can easily cheer for your downfall. Stay humble and stay true to self, and the rest will work out regardless of who’s support you don’t get. Stay blessed friends, stay motivated.

Motivational Monday’s: Your Passion

Passion… We all have it but are we Pursuing it? Most of the time we are not following our passion or living out our dream and it’s because we are scared. We are scared of failure and scared of success. 

What I suggest is to do your pros and cons list. Pros of what would and could be great if you followed your dream; and cons of what won’t work. That way it’s in your face and you can make a clearer decision. 

Regardless of what the passion is, a hobby, second form of income or new career, don’t settle yourself short. You can do it and you will, just make that decision to leap. Hope that helps!

Feel good Friday’s : thoughts on my recent 30th birthday and thoughts of where we “should” be in life.

Hi all!!

So on yesterday, July 23rd, I turned 30 years old. In the past, the older I turned, I either was emotional because I felt I wasn’t where I was “suppose” to be or extremely excited. As I looked in the mirror yesterday I said to myself that I didn’t look a day over 25! Lol so my face was in constant bliss.  

 A few days before, a coworker said to me, “Nikki at 30, you have accomplished so much. You are married, have a son, job and your own place. Much better than it was for me when I turned 30. I just thought I’d be in a different place in life”. This “place” in life and where we are “supposed” to be is difficult and is not fair to ourselves.

I’ve done this  when I turned 25. I was sad because I felt that things weren’t mapped out like I wanted them to be and life was a tornado in my head. I wasn’t engaged yet ( Steve proposed that Christmas), still lived at home, not the career I wanted, and was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. However, as time went on I realized that everything happened for a reason. Things also fall into place when they are supposed to. People jump into marriages, live together, have children or constantly make compulsive decisions all because it’s what they believe they should do but not necessarily ready for. We get pressure from family, friends, society and ourselves when we should just relax and let things happen naturally. Now don’t get me wrong, do I believe it’s wrong to have plans and goals? No not at all, you should strive for greatness, but don’t beat yourself up about it. 

So I say this in close, things will happen at the right time. It may not be YOUR “perfect” time but it will come. In the mean time, love yourself and what you have now!

Motivational Mondays: Stop hating what you aren’t 

  Hey all!

I hope everyone had a good weekend. Mine was pleasant. 

Now we are off to a new week and as you know today is Motivational Monday’s here on my blog.

I saw this quote on Pinterest and I had to share it! This is so true, we are constantly  beating ourselves up because we aren’t who or where we will believe we should be in life. However, do we ever take the moment to say: I’m thankful for what I do have and where I have the potential to go. I do believe that we should not settle or become stagnant in our lives, we should always show growth and work towards improvements. 

Always strive for more, push yourself to take risks. You really don’t know how successful you can become without trying. I’m here for you and if you want to reach out feel free to email me at: nicolecherise723@gmail.com

Thanks for reading!
