Ditch the resolutions, shift your mindset | Nichole Marie Boudoir | Sebastian, Florida Photographer
Alright, alright, alright.. *Insert Matthew McConaughey signature voice.* Did you hear it? Okay, good. Me too.
It’s June which means WE ARE HALF WAY THROUGH 2018. Holy shit, right?!
Sooo…how are those “new year resolutions” coming along? Go ahead and roll those eyes, girly. I FEEL YA.
New year's resolutions are so cliché, and quite frankly, none of us need a "new year" to set goals for ourselves!!
In fact, here at the studio, we literally make a goal list every single day we work, to keep ourselves on track.
It’s the first Monday of JUNE and I have abandoned my "save money, eat healthy, exercise daily" goals and some other motivational shit I told myself January 1st. Although, I haven't given up on goals completely... I've just changed my focus.
Instead of setting my physical appearance or materialistic items as my focal point for my goals, I've decided to put my mindset as the center of my attention, and shift the way I think.
WHAT THE HELL AM I TALKING ABOUT?
Here's a thought. Maybe you woke up today, ate chocolate cake first thing (like I did), and didn't make it to the gym to work off that 500 calorie breakfast... you might be down on yourself all day for that slip up.
But what if you stopped, shifted your thinking and told yourself "It's ok, tomorrow morning I'll start fresh??"
What if you told yourself it's O-FUCKING-KAY that you're not saving every last penny like you told yourself you were going to do this year.. because money is just money and it is NOT the root of all happiness?
Instead of dwelling on the fact that you can't afford to take a luxurious trip to a resort this summer like you wanted to, try to shift that thinking and appreciate the place you live. Take advantage of all it has to offer and plan a smaller more budget friendly trip.
Even though we are half way through the year and everything you stood so strong for that you were going to change in January may have fallen to shit, you still have yourSELF. You CAN have a badass attitude, loved ones surrounding you, and a grip on your own personal beliefs/morals.
THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS.
TRY THIS IDEA ON FOR SIZE
Starting now, ditch the idea of new year's resolutions, and each month, set fresh, REALISTIC goals for yourself.
Work towards your goals every month, but more importantly, make your overall daily goal to be the best version of yourself with a positive mindset. Here are some great realistic, achievable goals:
- I am going to build my self-confidence stronger than ever.
- I am going to let go of any thoughts or fears that hold me back, and change the negative thoughts into positive ones.
- I am going to treat everyday like it is my last.
- I will continually tell myself- "I deserve true happiness that I won't find in a "fit body" or a savings account, but instead in loving myself."
I want you to remember above all, that the reason we write these blogs for you is to reiterate that you cannot expect others to fully love you until you LOVE YOURSELF.
Ask yourself on the frickin' regular…"What am I doing for ME?"
How do you remind yourself DAILY that you are the BOMB.COM? (By the way.. it’s totally easier with a glossy metal print from your boudoir sesh hanging in your bedroom for you to gawk at.)
OUR NEW OFFERING FOR YOU
As you've seen scrolling the blog today, Nichole & I took tons of headshots last week. We wanted to show you that we too, get behind the lens every now and then, but we also wanted to show what we will be implementing into every session.
You will now have the option to take “LOVE” headshots during your sesh! Not only will you be reminded of how badass you are with boudoir, but you'll also have a souvenir to remind you of the most important thing you should take away from doing this... which is to LOVE YOURSELF :)
Xoxoxo, Nichole & Court
