My mantra for June is ‘What Will Be, Will Be.’ After having one of my May goals as 'Noticing More Opportunities', I quickly realized I was having a bad case of the 'What If's' every time a new opportunity popped up. For example, if I got excited by a new job application, I would think 'what … Continue reading HELLO JUNE: MONTHLY REFLECTIONS & INTENTIONS
This year I’ve been meditating everyday for 20 minutes; but sometimes there’s just NO time. I’ve found if I don’t do anything to create a momentary everyday, I become easily triggered, stressed, and anxious. And this is where “moderated meditation” comes in – I know, not a great name, but it’s all I could think … Continue reading INCORPORATE MEDITATION INTO YOUR EVERYDAY
One of the most difficult things about change is that we must let go of who we currently are – whether it be a habit, routine, mood, or viewpoint. Momentarily, we feel lost as we establish a new way of doing things. These past two weeks I’ve really been trying rise above the stuff that’s … Continue reading GETTING UN-STUCK MAY REQUIRE CHANGE
This weekend I did some reflecting, a lot of reflecting actually. I poured my soul out to my therapist, mother & friends. I had a breakthrough in 'why I do the things I do.' It was eye-opening, surprising, and allowed to to connect-the-dots in certain areas of my life. And it brought a lifelong curiosity … Continue reading DOES ‘EVERYTHING HAPPEN FOR A REASON’?
We live in a world where media idealizes human perfection. There's always another milestone to be hit, pound to be lost, men to be met, & goal to be reached in order to be content. In order to turn inward & figure out my genuine wants, I have to block out the noise. I need … Continue reading MY VISION BOARD & A MANIFESTING MINDSET

I created Mindfully Sarah (the original blog name) to be open and honest with myself in the hopes to keep myself going and pushing others to be the best version of themselves. However, life happens and this … Continue reading THE RETURN, REINVENT, & REBUILD
Welcoming 26 with open arms!! 25 was good to me. It was a year that brought lots changes in terms of self discovery and growth. It included a lot of work, patience, time figuring out how to prioritize my energy, and what I need in order to feel fulfilled. All of these realizations brought great … Continue reading CHEERS TO 26!
Have you ever noticed how much contrast there is in life? Light/Darkness Hope/Despair Joy/Anger Good/Bad Beginnings/Ends Safety/Terror Clean/Messy Order/Chaos Cold/Hot Self-Care/Hustle Acceptance/Desire for Growth Positivity/Negativity I’m learning to accept that there is truth and beauty in life’s contrasts. I spent so many years of my life chasing the light and hiding from the darkness. I’ve … Continue reading LIFE IN CONTRASTS
We're so close to the first day of summer, and that means one things for me: it's time to do some major decluttering (what, you thought that only happened in spring?). The change of seasons is the perfect time to reset. When you remove those the things that you no longer have a need for, it … Continue reading THE EASY WAY TO DECLUTTER
There was a moment this weekend where something clicked and I discovered a deeply ingrained belief from my childhood that's been holding me back in my adult-life. I have a deeply ingrained belief that I (and only I) control of how my life unfolds. This belief is especially evident when I run into obstacles. I … Continue reading CULTIVATING HOPE & FAITH
