The Look: Crystal tank from garbella (the tank isn’t listed anymore, but you can grab the t-shirt [$28.00] or pullover [$36.00]!) // Better Than Everything Legging in Navy ($92.00) from GRACEDBYGRIT // Gemstones Yoga Mat ($68.00) from Free Thirty Three Yoga Design Co.

But energy? It’s a lot harder to plan our energy. It can be quite the guessing game to try to figure out when it’s going to show up.

For SO long, I’ve been going above and beyond to put an excessive amount of energy into every client, project, post, and conversation I have. I thought that was the key to success. I thought constantly overachieving is what was going to help me grow my business. Well, that’s not completely true. Read
