It’s not too late to start in 2023…

If you’re looking for *that girl* telling you to slow down…I am NOT her.

YES I love a *moment* for me — one that is slow, intentional, relaxing, and cup-filling — but after some serious consideration, I’m not sure THIS is that moment.

Let me explain…

This moment is literally setup for us as a reset, as a time to reflect on every success, and as a time to ask “is this really who/where I want to be again next year?” And YES I know that can be a really daunting question. But listen…setting the same goals again and again feels like a past Rachel problem🤷🏻‍♀️

What if rather than allowing the pressure of “new year, new me” hurt us, we let it help us instead? What if we let it motivate, hold us accountable, ignite small steps who add up to make a great difference, and leads us to the life we dream?

I don’t know about YOU but THAT sounds a lot like 2023 me!

And listen, letting this moment inspire you to start doesn’t mean making changes that cause an even greater backslide. And it doesn’t mean making every change at once or in a damaging way either. But instead it means setting small, attainable goals who together make a BIG change! So please, take it slow but don’t slow down. You’re almost there, and I’m cheering for you!

Why We Never Follow Through…

Do you ever find yourself, year after year, setting the same goal to achieve the same dream but never actually following through with it? GIRL, SAME! In fact, that was 100% me. Always dreaming of starting a YouTube channel for Ditch the Clique but never making it happen. But the key word there is WAS because DTC TV is officially here!

Yes, my dream of Ditch the Clique expanding our connective social sphere to YouTube is officially here. And GIRL it came with A LOT of road blocks along the way…

Ditch the Clique Overcomers Tour 2021

Pink ribbons draped along the walls, brunch food steaming on the counter, sticky notes spreading words of positivity on every mirror, and of course, the iconic gold DTC balloons creating the perfect backdrop for a photoshoot. Like so many other women, I FINALLY got to see these balloons in person at DTC’s Overcomers Tour! I have been working as an intern with DTC for over a year now, but I had never attended an in-person event or met Rachel (crazy, right?)

If you’ve never had the pleasure of attending one of these events, well GIRL – I’ve got the skinny for you…

& Just Like That…I’m Old(er)

& just like that…I’m another year older! (Fellow Sex & the City fans, PLEASE tell me you read that in Carrie’s voice!)

In true Sagittarian form, I LOVE my birthday and the celebrations that ensue! But funny enough, I once *DREADED* getting older and the aging that inevitably comes with it (regardless of how strict my skincare routine may be.) And much like you, I used to believe the lie that very specific boxes needed to be checked by a certain age in order for me to *really* be happy.

But GIRL that’s what’s so funny about growing up…
