You Are Amazing, Be Unapologetically You Today & EverydayDo you recall the moment where you came to the realization that you are self-aware. This is a really deep question, but it is so important. Self-awareness is such a powerful mechanism that has the power to generate so much happiness in your life, everyday. Self-awareness provides you with such peace, you recognize your strengths and accept your weaknesses. You continuously cultivate your dream and if you are not happy you change it because you know that there is so much more out there for you. Your life is about consistently breaking your own limits and tapping into your limitless potential. Your limitless potential is cultivated from accentuating your strengths. Remember, you are not in competition with anyone else, plan to out-do your past, not other people around you. Be enlightened with the fact we are all on different journeys and experiencing different things. You are not alone. Focus on challenging yourself to be better and grow stronger everyday. When you fall out of self-awareness or lose sight, journal. It is your only solution, write it all down. Watch what happens…self-awareness. If you choose to live life authentically, you will consistently be self-aware about your passions and dreams. You will be happier.
Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go who we think we’re supposed to be and embracing who we are Brené Brown

Interview with Lauryn of The Skinny Confidential
No. 1 – Introduce yourself: Who is Lauryn & which personal traits helped define your journey?
The idea for The Skinny Confidential came about when I was attending San Diego State University. I was incredibly frustrated by the lack of healthy food options on campus… and I was BORED. At the time I was going to school full-time, working days & nights, and teaching reformer Pilates and Pure Barre. Also, I was on a major budget.
So, I started modifying all of my meals & the rest is history.
I would take off one side of the bread in a sandwich or swap lettuce for spinach, sweeten coffee with cinnamon, make taco salads, you get it. Then one day I sort of had a lightbulb moment and thought, “why not share my tips and tricks with other women? There’s 20,000 women on campus, they need these tricks too! And shit, I want their tips.”
Since then, The Skinny Confidential has evolved from a fitness and health blog to a community for women all over the world to come & SPILL their tips & tricks. It’s a source of inspiration for women. The Skinny Confidential is also a book, a podcast, and soon to be product line.

No. 4 – What routine habits are you presently practicing and how do these habits add value to your day?
