“Instead of NO, I hear YES”

Where do I find my motivation? It took a long time to see that motivation doesn’t come from what others do or say. It comes from inside of me. I began a list of “INSTEAD OF” beliefs after using self-care to decompress from my last job and the stress of a family member struggling with addiction.

The contrasting beliefs poured out of me once I adopted a new mindset. Self-care had a lot to do with it. I took some wellness courses including mindfulness. Then I started:

“The Beginning of Hope”

INSTEAD OF giving up, I opened my mind

INSTEAD OF struggling, I asked for help

INSTEAD OF waiting, I took the initiative 

INSTEAD OF faltering, I rallied

Everything started falling into place once I began to rethink the possibilities from a new perspective. I knew I wanted a fresh start and I was the only one to make it happen. That’s when I found my inspiration. I was motivated from within and I accepted that my journey into the future meant embracing my past and growing from it.

Giving back

You can see how I incorporated past struggles into giving back and donating clean beauty products to sober living centers. It's so meaningful for me and my community to help others in their journey toward clean living.

More to come

There are many other parts I’ll share with you that led me to “Instead of NO, I hear YES.” Thank you for following my journey.

Everyone is different so how do you find your motivation?

Upcycle Your Skincare Containers

May 04, 2021

What is Upcycling?
Upcycling creates less trash by reusing and transforming the containers and other things you already have. Brilliant! The examples below save you money and if your items are biodegradable at least they don’t end up floating in the ocean.
  • use old fabric and towels as drop cloths or rags
  • reuse paper in packages you receive for future packages you ship
  • get a refill on liquid products
  • repurpose skincare and cosmetic containers

Upcycling bottles, jars, paper tubes

First try to get refills of your products so the original container lives on. Afterward remove the label from glass using rubbing alcohol, sterilize and use for countless things. The possibilities are endless.
Glass Jar:
  • Terrarium
  • DIY skincare ingredients
  • snacks
  • organize craft materials
  • store tea or spices

Glass Bottle:

  • portable water spray
  • a vase
  • DIY bath oil blends

Glass Vile:

  • row of vases
  • travel size toiletries
  • store sand from fave beach

Paperboard tubes (sanitize first)

  • plant seeds
  • use it as a little gift box
  • battery candle holder

Have fun upcycling! You’ll love the feeling of helping the planet.
