Challenge Yourself, A Little Struggle Never Hurt

I long to be back in paradise on this cold NY day. A couple Thursdays ago I was on my “Body Holiday” and took a mental, physical and social media break.  Ok, so I may have hearted a few pics on IG and liked some things on FB.  But, for the most part I was detached from the world and loved it.  Every so often you need a break from everyday life to unwind, recharge, reconnect with yourself and loved ones.

But, I am back in the concrete jungle and ready to see what I can stir up.  Stirring up good trouble! Since there is no change without a little struggle, I decided to challenge myself, especially since it is the Lenten Season.


Concrete Jungle that I love!

When you take a hiatus from life you have time to reflect and re-evaluate. There are many changes we could all make, keeping in mind life is a journey not a destination. So, over time you grow as a person and change comes about.

I have decided to utilize the things I have around me a bit more, my stove and my juicer for starters. Basic, I know but under utilized! Yes, it takes time that I really don’t have to make that carrot juice and cook that salmon but like I said, there can be no change without a little bit of struggle. That is true for so many things in life. Nothing comes easy, you have to work for it. It makes the end result all the more sweeter. I have learned that all the tools you need to achieve your goals lie within you.


Me, making green juice! Yay! Ignore the Malbec 🙂

Won’t you join me and challenge yourself to do the things you want to do but think you can’t because of time constraints or your preconceived notions. Go ahead and fulfill those dreams that you have buried inside. Work harder to complete your goals. You can’t pray for peace, love, joy, happiness, prosperity, success and on and on and not work for it.

Challenge yourself!

Fashionably yours,
Danalee Francesca
