A very special secret trip to San Francisco to collect my things at my ex’s condo before moving to NYC. Yes, I had a key, and no, he didn’t know I was coming.

February 22, The Master Builder, and Guidance Through Angel Numbers

Ah, 2/22.¬† For as long as I can remember, 22 has been my favorite number.¬† I get excited on the “22” days every month, and never fail to see my birthday, 12:22, on the clock- or any other 22 for that matter.¬† Not only was I born on December 22, I was raised on West Bay Shore Drive, also known as M22 (Michigan highway 22).

22 holds a special place in my heart.¬† Known as the “Master Builder,” 22 is the most powerful of all numbers.¬† Confident and diplomatic, courageous and charismatic, 22 is also known as insightful and intelligent.

Sometimes 22’s can be scared of their own talents and gifts, but listening to love and continuing to spread their art is important for them to truly feel happy and fulfilled.¬† I know that can be the case for me- I’ve held back from sharing my work with others in fear of rejection, but I’ve learned to focus on the positive, learn from the critiques, and know I’m serving a purpose by sharing my stories.¬† It makes me so, so happy when I get messages from women telling me they relate to what I have written.¬† If I can make just one person feel like they’re not alone, I have done what I came to do.¬† We all need to feel connected- and 22 is also a very powerful number of connection.

You can hone in on the ambitious 22 energy and learn more here.

Angel number 222 signifies balance and harmony, encouraging you to follow your heart.¬† It’s also a nudge from the angels that you’re on the right track to discovering your purpose and following your passions.¬† If you’re feeling down or doubting your dreams, know that 222 is reminding you to keep the faith- the Universe will deliver when it is time.

Maintaining a positive attitude and acknowledging everything you’re grateful for is essential to manifesting more blessings and synchronicities in your life- for me, when my vibration is high and I’m feeling energized, my life begins to flow and following my path is effortless.¬†¬†22, or 222, is powerful for manifesting your desires and dreams, so make the most out of this special day.¬† If you’re in need of raising your vibration, check out a post I did about ways to uplift yourself when your vibes are a little low.

Writing out a gratitude list each morning, choosing a few favorite mantras to lift your spirits, and journaling are amazing ways to help put your life in perspective, set intentions, and manifest a life you’ll love.¬† You hold more power than you know, so focus on what you want- not the things you don’t.¬† It works.

PS- hello from Denver!¬† Anyone who asks if I’m here to ski definitely doesn’t know I’m one of the least athletic people on Earth.¬† However, there’s a heated pool,¬†hot tub, and endless coffee (which is a little more my speed).¬† Let me know if there’s anywhere I MUST check out while I’m here!

Living Beautifully

 

I used to get tied up in day to day monotony and focused on all of the things I “had” to do or “should” do. ¬†This was especially prevalent in New York. ¬†I didn’t always stop to enjoy the beauty around me or the small details that bring each day joy.

My life was so chaotic that I didn’t enjoy the little things, such as sitting to enjoy a smoothie at Starbucks, journaling, listening to the birds, painting my nails to coordinate with my outfit, or taking pictures of the sunrise. ¬†I just rushed¬†through life to get to the next moment. ¬†That’s no way to live.

After leaving NYC last summer, I lived with family by the lake in a small Michigan town, away from the modern conveniences of city living. ¬†It was the perfect “reset.” ¬†I enjoyed coffee in the backyard each morning, relaxed by the water, and actually enjoyed my meals- I stopped rushing and began to enjoy the moment.

That was when my true passion for mindfulness began.

When I started this blog in the beginning of December 2016, I wanted to combine my mindfulness lessons with my love for style and living beautifully. ¬†People have continually told me to relax and stop worrying about my makeup, outfit or hair- but those are things I enjoy. ¬†It’s a part of “living beautifully.”

I believe there’s a fine balance between relaxing and simply feeling good for you. ¬†Some days I want to run around in a baseball cap and flip flops, and others I want to wear my staple- the little black dress. ¬†It all depends on the day.

Living beautifully is about balance.

Life in Boston has provided a perfect mix of city life and mindful living, as this historic city is so diverse with beauty, culture, nature and sophistication. ¬†Mindful in Style came naturally to me after just six short days, and I’ve enjoyed writing about my life of mindfulness, minimalism, style and spirituality ever since.

What does living beautifully mean to you?
