5 Ways To Become a Better Version of Yourself


being a better youDo you ever think to yourself “how can I be better?” Have you thought “I am living my life this way but how can I make it better?” Have you thought that you aren’t living up to your potential?  Have asked yourself these types of questions:

  • How can I be a better partner?
  • How can I be a better coach?
  • How can I be a better friend?
  • How can I be a better employee or business owner?
  • How can I be a better friend?
  • How can I be a better parent, sibling, aunt, uncle?

When I think about how to be a better person I turn inward and take a mental inventory about what I need to do for myself first. It all starts here – inside. I have to feel mentally and physically “good” before I can be better.

In order to feel your best you can always work on doing these 5 things:

Surround yourself with people that are better for you.

Jim Rohn said “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” And he is right. I spend my time with vibrant, positive, smart and amazing people. I would rather spend an evening alone than with an energy vampire.

FunBride. FunGroom. FunBoy

 

funboy watchYou’re planning a wedding. You have appointments to keep, deadlines to make, places to be and things to do! And of course, there’s real life on top of all of that wedding stuff. We can’t give you a personal assistant or a wedding coordinator, but we CAN give you a watch! In fact, we like you so much, we’ll give you two watches – one for you and one for your sweetie.

Once you’ve got a colorful Funboy watch strapped on your wrist, it’ll be hard to lose track of time because you’ll just want to stare at your colorful new watch – not to mention, people will always be complementing you on it! Funboy watches have interchangeable faces and straps so you can create a color combo that fits your mood (we hope it’s always rosy, but you don’t have to get a pink watch). Plus, with the wide variety of options, we also think that Funboy watches make extra wonderful bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts. We’re pretty we’ve even seen a picture on Pinterest of a bridal party rocking matching watches.

You’re Not Getting Married for Your Guests

I happened to be sitting in a hotel lobby in a far off city last weekend, waiting for a business partner. There were plenty of people milling about and through overheard snippets of conversations I realized that the hotel lobby was full of people in town for a wedding. I overheard the bride say to a friend “I’m not nervous about anything but whether or not my guests will have a good time.”

That statement has been ringing in my head for the past few days, and I thought about what I would say to that bride if she was one of my girlfriends. If she was (and lets just pretend you are too, you bride-to-be reading this blog), here’s what I would respond with:

Adventures in Married Life

 

My husband and I went skiing for the first time EVER last weekend. It was fun and scary and frustrating and exhilarating all at once. And the perfect metaphor for engagement – or marriage.

Having never been on skis before I did not have a CLUE what I was doing. I knew it was going to be fun, and I was looking forward to another notch in my adventure belt, but I was pretty scared, not unlike how I felt after saying “yes” to the proposal.

We took two lifts all the way to the top of the mountain, and pointed our skis downhill. The first 20-25 feet were pretty steep and I fell down a lot.
