10 life hacks for anyone in a long-distance relationship

A long distance relationship is difficult…. but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! Here are 10 hacks to keep your relationship exciting and improve connection drastically.


If life were a game…

…If you could be whoever you wanted, do whatever you wanted, be with whoever you wanted, open any door you wanted – and every door you opened would lead you on a new adventure…

Who would you be?
What would you do?
Who would you be with?
Which doors would you open?
What RISKS would you take?

Because, actually, that ‘game’ is life.
And the only things keeping you from ‘playing the game’ well are your own paradigms, your own routine that you’ve created, and the limitations you’ve placed on yourself.

Life has so much to offer to those who are willing to grab and create opportunities, and for those who don’t let fear hold them back.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams”
– Eleanor Rooseveld

“Within each person is the potential to build the empire of her (or his)  wishes, and don’t allow anyone to say you can’t have it all.
You can.
You CAN have it all!!”

-Estée Lauder

Sure, ‘the game’ might pan out differently to how you expect it to, but at least you’re actively going after what you want and not just settling for what’s easy or risk free….

…and that’s what makes the game so much fun!

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to create the life I want without fear dictating the way.

I’m ready to play well, love every step of it, and relish every moment of it…

I’m ready to PLAY THE GAME called life.




“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
-Walt Disney

If you are beating yourself up about that piece of chocolate cake you just devoured, or about how you no longer fit into your ‘thin jeans’… then STOP.


Whatever is going on in your life, whatever internal war you are facilitating… let it go.
Make peace with yourself and your decisions.

Why? Because whatever is going on inside of you, will manifest itself as your external reality.

If you are beating yourself up, hosting an internal war within yourself, or allowing feelings of dread, negativity and regret to fill you up, then your external reality will likely look like this: A struggle. 

Powerful people make decisions every day to OWN their emotions, and not let their emotions rule them or their lives. They make peace with their decisions – choosing to believe that every decision they make is the right one. And if they break their diet, they don’t beat themselves up about it, but they also don’t let it throw them off their game.

So today – take time to love on yourself a little. Make peace with yourself.

Give yourself a break!

And you will find that your external reality will become a place of peace (even despite circumstances) and your feeling of being a powerful person in your situation will return.

Give yourself a break, revive your spirit and strengthen your soul by being kind to yourself. And then use that strength to reassess and take back control of your external reality.

YOU are the most powerful person in your life.
