A positive team can bring out a better you!

Monday, December 14, 2015

I don’t know where I’d be without my team! Though there were no official try outs, I definitely owe any success that I've had to this special group of people.

Not only do I enjoy being around them, they positively contribute to my life. Whether they’re providing advice or simply an ear to listen, I’m so appreciative to know that my team is always in my corner.

Mom: If you are a regular reader of my blog, you can probably already assume how much I adore my mom! Not only is she my life coach but she’s my #1 cheerleader! There’s nothing like having that one  supporter who loves your unconditionally and will do anything that they can on their end to help you succeed.

Positive friends: I am so blessed to have the most amazing friends! I love having positive people around me who get just as excited about my accomplishments as I do. We all support and motivate each other to keep going, take chances and set even higher goals. Not only do we have fun but we work hard and we just can't help but be inspired by each other's drive.

People who understand your vision: This is actually a newer addition to my team! Since I’ve begun blogging on a more consistent level and joined the Windy City Blogger Collective at the beginning of the year, I’ve had the opportunity to meet some pretty awesome people. Two of my favorite fellow bloggers Dasha of Windy City Wardrobe and Raissa of S1mpl3 are always there for me whether it be for blogging tips or a little support.

I’m super happy to be considered a part of Dasha’s blog tribe and she’s certainly a part of mine. She’s always willing to talk things out or explain things to me that I might not understand when it comes to blogging. Raissa also couldn’t be more of a sweetheart! We help each other out by regularly shooting each other’s style photos and she always goes out of her way to make time in her schedule for me. It's so great to have people around me who have similar visions and really understand and share my love for blogging! 

Virtual coaches: Though I've never met or communicated with these people in real life, there are so many online personalities that I would also consider apart of my team! I’ve found Periscope to be really helpful in my creative journey, with gurus like Mattieologie and The Nectar Collective providing amazing advice and even developing little communities where other people who benefit from their wisdom can come together to share even more ideas.

Who’s on your life team? Give them a shout out in the comments!
