• Are You Talkin’ Crap?

    I mean to yourself. Are you talkin’ crap to yourself? Have you really ever even thought about how you talk to yourself?  Or how much you talk to yourself? Probably not.  But let me tell ya…..I was the biggest crap self-talker EVA!  It’s true. Don’t be me.  And to help you avoid that dark hole,  I want you to give the exercises that follow a try.  Like, I want you to give it your best effort….because I really want you to see how your subconscious could (probably IS) limiting you!  Limiting you from living a truly fulfilled life. Ready?  Here we go: Check in on your feelings.  The first step…

  • Confidence Can Be Yours!

    I’m not gonna lie……I used to loathe the topic of “self-confidence”.   Probably because  I had none…..and what people DID think I had, I faked. Seriously….I was the Queen of “fake it til you make it”. Over the last several years, I’ve done the work. Every self-help + growth + get your shit together book. Seminars.  Webinars.  Classes. Therapy. And sooooo many conversations with God. Here’s the thing……there’s a difference between trying to be perfect and self-confidence.  And because for just about my entire life nothing about me was good enough or right enough (and I was told that almost daily),  I worked my ass off trying to achieve perfection so…

  • Feeling Lost?

    It’s such an unsettling time in our history, right? Back in early March, most of our lives changed in ways that we never could have imagined.   And it seems like everywhere you turn, that’s all you see.  Coronavirus.   The unknown can be a very scary thing for all of us and we all deal with it in different ways.  I think something that adds to the stress of it all is seeing friends that aren’t normally full of stress or anxiety actually experiencing it. So many of us are in quarantine right now – “Stay Home” officially – and maybe you’re feeling a little bit isolated?   You’re not alone.  Which…

  • Why Do You Do Both?

    Well…..in short – because they really DO go together! I’ve gotten more than a few messages since the beginning of 2020 asking why I do both.  Both as in Reckless Grace Boutique + this.  Her Confident Life.  And some have even wondered if I’m giving one up to move forward with the other.  And THAT answer is a giant, definite NO!  So I thought I’d take a few minutes and give you the answer…..you know, in case YOU were wondering too? Back several years ago when my “business” Facebook page began, it really wasn’t a business.  Nope.  Back then, the page was Cowgirl Dreams Co. and it was purely inspirational…

  • Life Ain’t Always Easy…..

    …..but still – it’s always worth it. And no matter how much we try, sometimes life just piles up. And if you’re anything like me, that can sometimes lead to one seriously dreaded thing – Panic.  I’ve been battling some stuff ever since about the first week of January and over the last few days, several other totally random things popped up and all of it combined created The Perfect Storm inside me.  And it created The Perfect Storm because I totally wasn’t on my game. But that’s how anxiety + panic attacks work sometimes.  You can be going about your life just fine and then all of a sudden…

  • What Consumes Your Mind…

    …controls your life! Writing about gratitude seems so, well…….almost ordinary.  (And I am not a fan of ordinary!) Everywhere your eyes fall these days, someone is telling you to start changing your mindset and practice gratitude.  Am I right?  (Ummmm…..including ya girl right here.) But why? Because it makes soooo much sense! I believe in it. I practice it. And I’m hooked. And I’m hoping over the next several days, I’m gonna get YOU hooked right along with me! So…what does it do?  Does it make a difference? First of all – YES!  It makes a huge difference!  Did you happen to listen to the podcast episode “Ain’t Nobody Like…
