YouTube Channel

Good morning everybody!

It is currently 10:30 am on January 22, 2017. As some of you may know I've been vlogging the past month or so. Having my own YouTube channel is something that I've always wanted to do since I was in middle school watching beauty tutorials for hours on end with my friend Erin. Personally, I would much rather sit down and watch a vlog than a TV show, and I thoroughly enjoy watching other people's content that they are pouring their hearts into every single day.

Becoming a successful YouTuber is a full time commitment. People spend their entire lives working their butt off just to create good quality content for their viewers. Even though I'm just starting out, I have come to the realization that a fresh start is exactly what I need in order to rebrand myself, and make my channel exactly what I want/need it to be.

For those of you who have already subscribed to my old channel, thank you. Thank you so much! Your support is amazing, and I'm very thankful for each and every single one of you. That being said, I am going to start over. The url linked to my channel now is one I created literally ten years ago (iwanttobeacitygirl). It's actually quite hilarious even just looking at it. It's like one of those terribly embarrassing emails you made for yourself in elementary school, everyone's got them! So... I'm starting over. As soon as YouTube will allow me back in to create a new channel, with a new name, I will let you guys know and that way you can follow that account from here on out. I'm looking forward to where this journey will take me and thank you in advance for your patience!

Love always,
Michaela

Rise and shine my loves! 

My beautiful friend Danielle sent this quote to me last night because the second she saw it, she thought of me. First of all THANK YOU! Thank you for thinking of me when reading this incredible quote (such a huge compliment), and thank you for sending it to me. Do me a favor and read it out loud. Read it to yourself. Scream it if you have to. 






It seems to me that on a daily basis I, along with many others, forget my worth. But my question is why? Why do we consistently forget just how wonderful we are?! You can move mountains. Always remember that. 

EACH DAY WE ARE GIVEN HERE ON THIS EARTH IS A GIFT. When you wake up each morning think of it as the universe handing you a big present with a bow on top. A second chance. Another opportunity to chase your dreams, tell someone you love them, run three miles, eat your favorite ice cream, learn how to ice skate, start a YouTube channel, hop on an airplane to your dream vacation, dance in the rain, take a photography class, etc. Do it all now, while you have the opportunity. Do it all now, so you won't have regrets. 

Stop putting yourself second. You my dear are SO INCREDIBLE. You have all the power in the world to chase after your dreams, and if you don't want to do it for yourself, do it for me. Do it for your daughter, or your sister, or your best friend. Make the decision today that YOU ARE WORTH IT. You are worth every ounce of happiness that achieving your dreams will bring you. Take the jump. Its okay to not know the outcome of every situation. That's why you have ME. I will support you. I will love you, and I will tell you that you deserve this. 

Thank you all for reading! I love you all to the moon and back.

Love always,
Michaela

Burning Heart Studio

Happy Saturday babes! 

A lot of you have been asking me since my last post was published what my favorite ways to put myself first are. I'm here tonight to tell you about one specific place that always allows me to do so. 

One thing that really helps me keep a clear mindset and a positive outlook on life is exercising. So if you've been keeping tabs on my life the past couple of months you will have known this already, but I FREAKING LOVE BURNING HEART! For those of you who don't know what Burning Heart Studio is, stop reading this, yes I'm giving you permission to stop reading my post, and go check out their website or Facebook page

I'm saying this with all sincerity, if you try a Burning Heart class your life will change in forty-five minutes. The teachers who lead you through these intense classes make it FUN! Yes, I said fun! The people on the bikes/mats next to you support you through every minute, and afterwards you feel like you could take over the world. 

Please do yourself a favor and sign up for a class. If you're nervous simply say so and do it anyways! 

Thank you for reading!

Love always,
Michaela

The Self Love Club

Happy New Year my loves!

I have some VERY exciting news. This year I will be teaming up with my good friend Adrianna Whalen on a project we have been working very hard on for the past couple of months. Drum roll please! We want you to join us in The Self Love Club!

The Self Love Club? What in the world is that?! Well, let me explain. Who's tired of not feeling there own personal best? How many of you keep putting your goals on the back burner? Are any of you not happy with who surrounds you on a daily basis? Adrianna and I are here to help guide you through making tiny changes in your everyday lives to become a happier and healthier version of you. If you choose to follow alongside us in 2017 I can almost guarantee that we will all have a more positive mindset, learn coping mechanisms to move past the stressful/sticky situations that present themselves as the year moves forward, and to most importantly become your own best friend.

First things first. Lets talk about resolutions. A lot of people don't see the point in making New Year's resolutions and that's totally fine, but I always love to set my intentions for the year right away! Making lists and writing each resolution out helps me to see the entirety of each goal, and work harder to make it happen.

New Year's Resolutions:

1. Stop comparing myself to others and accept myself completely.

This goal is my number one resolution I hope to accomplish this year. I'm always telling people to love themselves for who they are, flaws and all, now it's time for me to practice what I preach.

2. Put myself first.

3. Learn how to step away from the screen. I need to start putting my time and energy into activities that I thoroughly enjoy (reading, yoga, cooking). Basically I want to push myself to be more present in any given moment, instead of mindlessly scrolling through my phone.

4. Focus on the good.

There are wonderful things that are happening every single day. There are incredible people that love and support me, always. In 2017 I will learn to concentrate on the amazing things that are going on around me, rather then succumbing to the stress.

Let's make 2017 the year of choosing you. Please join Adrianna and I as we embark on this crazy journey! If you want to stay connected with everything that's going on you can join The Self Love Club Facebook group and use the hashtag #kinderbraverstronger on any social media platform. I hope you are all as excited about this as we are! Here's to an unforgettable year!

Love always,
Michaela
