Holy Week for the Orthodox

This blog post is going to be incredibly different from the ones I’ve done in the past. Completely different. Some of you may know and some may not, but I am Greek Orthodox! To many the way they connect with that would be “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, then they know kind of what I’m…

Let’s Combat that Stress

We all have days where we get that uncomfortable feeling in our stomach; we tense up and have that nagging stressful feeling that we can’t totally pinpoint the source in our body. We could know exactly what is causing the stress and nerves or we might have no idea at all. When you have no…

Fight For It!

Have you ever had something you wanted so much more than anything else in this world? What did you do to keep it and safe guard it? Did you fight for it and believe one hundred percent in it? You have to if you want to keep those things safe I believe. This goes for…

Broken and Beautiful

We all have cracks, flaws, differences that life has given us along the way. Stretch marks that have appeared over time from experiences we’ve gone through and lessons that have pushed us, and brought us to new comfort levels. Our tiger stripes or warrior markings. You can have gotten the literal stretch marks from bearing…

Treat Yourself!

We all know self-care is so important. To be able to flourish we must nourish, and to be able to nourish we have to flourish. We can’t pour from an empty cup so we can’t forget about ourselves. Sometimes we all need a bit of pampering and that is totally fine! We can definitely pamper…

I Need Time

Needing time is not a sign of weakness. You are not being a wimp by saying you need a moment to regroup. We all need time to regroup our thoughts, re-center ourselves. We’re only human and can’t be super man or super woman 24/7. We are allowed to stop and rest if we need to….

Don’t be Afraid to go for it!

I have been following Fit & Flirty on Instagram for a while now and love the message, the people I’ve met, the empowerment I feel from this line…. I’m so excited to get to be a part of this company now too and just get to share positivity and love with lots of ladies out…

Ethos

Ethos (N) [ee-thos]: the distinguishing character, sentiment, moral nature, or guiding beliefs of a person, group, or institution.   That is the Webster Dictionary’s description of ethos. Another beautiful Greek word out there that really can’t be fully described in one word, or even a sentence. The dictionary can briefly touch on the outline of…

Authenticity = Power

Showing your true colors is not a sign of weakness. To some it might seem so; you have to always be a certain way. Always ready for what life throws your way, always okay and never show emotion. You also don’t want to have too different of a personality or style from others around you…

Chef’s Table

So this is a bit of a different post for me, but I had a friend ask a while back to talk about some books or movies that inspire me. I have a short attention span when it comes to movies or shows, and even books, so I really have to be interested and invested…

Eunoia

Another beautiful Greek word I want to share!   Eunoia: (n) a pure and well-balanced mind, a good spirit, “Beautiful Thinking”   Beautiful thinking…. Just the idea of that action makes me smile. Thinking of the positives in every situation. Finding the beauty in everything! Waking up each day with a purpose to highlight the…

Be in Love with YOU!

Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love- Brené Brown   I am amazing and enough. Be kind to yourself like you are to all those around you. Treat yourself as you treat those you care for. This is slightly like the golden rule, but backwards due to the fact we must care…
