HELLO JULY

Hi Aspirers!

Today is July 1st! Yes I said it, July 1st. Can you believe it? This year is flying by. July is one of my favorite months of the year because it’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! Seeing your next birthday is a blessing that we sometimes take for granted. Let’s take the time and make everyday a blessing. I wanted to celebrate my birthday a little different this year but I’ll still be accepting gifts of course. This July I want to point out all things I’m grateful for and things I’m able to do.

For the next 31 days of July I will point out at least 1 thing that I’m grateful for. I’ll be posting either on my blog or Instagram. Make sure to follow me on Instagram @_cocorenee if you haven’t already. If you want to share what you’re grateful for this July make sure to #GRATEFULFORJULY on all your social media! Can’t wait to see your posts!

Sincerely, Courtney Renee

SavagexFenty REVIEWS

Hey Aspirers guess who received the lingerie line by Rihanna! I did! With all the hype of this new line I had to get my hands on it because I love anything by Rihanna. Who doesn’t love Rihanna?! I decided to not only make one review video but TWO! In the videos you’ll find out the quality of products, how everything fit me, and is it worth your money. Check out the videos and let me know what you think.

Have you been negative this year? 

Aspirers let’s take a moment to reflect on how 2016 was for you. Think about all the good you done and all the bad. Don’t lie and say “I’ve been a perfect little angel” because no one is perfect. I don’t mind going first and being honest. One thing I’ve noticed about six or seven months ago was catching myself was being negative. I didn’t realize it was problem until one day I came to the conclusion that things weren’t falling into place. Something was going on around me and I pinpointed it to my negative ways. I wasn’t being negative towards others (well I hope not) but when something was told to me by certain people I pointed out their flaws A LOT. I came to the conclusion to push out the negativity and not talk about it especially when the issues wasn’t towards me or what I was doing. I’ve noticed when I point out the negatives the feeling creeps back up again and the cycle continues. If there is a negative thought in my head I stop and pray for God to push it off of me. Guess what he pushed it off and I stopped thinking about it. This wasn’t an over night solution but soon after I started seeing results and success happening in my life because I saw things in a more positive light. We never know how negativity effects us until we decide to do something about it. 

Can you point out your bad ways? Are you open to changing it? Will you change it? Leave your comments below. I’m going to revisit this topic again because we all don’t need to bring negativity in the new year.

#wwydWednesday: How to stay motivated 

Have you ever been in a funk where you’re just feeling down? You want to do something but you let the time past you by. What do you do? How can you over come it? Well I thought of some tips that could help. 

Tip 1#

Find out what’s wrong. 

  • Are you depressed? 
  • Does it feel like you hit rock bottom? 
  • Are you comparing yourself to other people’s success? 

Depression

If you are depressed or think that you are SEEK HELP! Don’t be afraid to go to a family member, friend, or a counselor. 

No, I’ve never been depressed but I’ve seen people go through it. Someone could have everything going great for them but still be depressed. Depression is a disease and it must be treated. It’s not a 24 hour cure or a 7 step program. It’ll take time.

If you’re scared to talk to someone there are anynomous hotlines such as DBSA. To get out of depression you must seek help or if someone you know have depression help them. They need to know they aren’t alone. 

Rock Bottom

Have you hit rock bottom? Well there’s an upside to that because you can’t go down any further. 

For me I’m a planner and like to write things down so if something unexpected comes up I sometimes can’t handle it especially if it has to do with money. For me money isn’t everything but it will get you out of situations when you need to like finding a new place to live or paying bills. For others it could be family, relationship, work, or school problems. Which can be an easy fix sometimes. 

We all have to go through difficult times. We all have different solutions on how to succeed. One thing that helps me is finding something that is positive. It could be a quote, poem, song, speech, a person, or whatever. Go to what is positive every time you hit rock bottom to remind yourself THIS ISN’T IT! Remind yourself until you believe it. 

Comparing Yourself

Say this out loud. 

My name is (insert first and last name). I’m not Beyoncé, a Kardashian, Kanye, or the Queen of England so why should I compare myself to them. We aren’t the same. We don’t have the same up bringing. I don’t even look like them. 

Repeat if you need to.

We put so much pressure on ourselves. We are here to do our own great act. We might not have found it yet but it’s coming. Keep looking and comparing yourself to others and you’ll miss your opportunity to shine. 

Once we stop comparing ourselves it’ll be easier for us to focus on what’s important which is ourselves. 

One big tip I want you to get out of this post is loving ourselves. We are our biggest victory but we can also be our biggest downfall. 

I hope these tips help. If so don’t forget to like this post and share it with someone you know. 

Sincerely, Courtney Renee

#wwydWednesday: Let be positive! 

I’m great! 

I’m doing amazing things right now!

I’m finally understanding it! 

How often have you said positive things about yourself? You know we can be our biggest critics at times but we have to remember to be positive too. Positivity keeps us going. Yes we might thrive off of negative people to show them what we can do but there needs to be something positive to keep us going. 

Stay positive everyone!
