Having Faith In Your Journey🌸

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Hebrews‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭KJV‬

Having faith is very important to a creative. I pray over my platforms everyday in hopes of growth, understanding, and more knowledge into my field. One of my goals in life, is to have a closer relationship with God. In doing so, I’m learning to have faith that if I bring my troubles and problems to Him, he will give me solutions and ease my worries. Today I’m sharing how you can grow by having faith!

P.U.S.H

So my very first tip? P.U.S.H, pray until something happens. You have to understand that what you’re praying for may not exactly be in Gods will for you. Pray for what you want, and work towards it of course. If you see you’re being guided elsewhere take that as a sign that maybe this is not where you’re meant to be. And God possibly has a greater vision for you.

Set Realistic Goals

By having realistic goals and doing your best to check each one off you are setting yourself in motion to achieve bigger life long goals!

Celebrate the Journey

My last tip is to celebrate your journey at all stages. For my YouTube goals I celebrated every single special achievement. First follower? Rewarded myself with a special pamper night. 10 subbies another reward and so on. The same with my blogging goals. Celebrating all the way to my long term goals makes me feel accomplished. It also lets me have mini reminders that what I’m praying and working towards is obtainable and within my reach. Instagram ~Twitter ~Vliz: MelaLynnTV~ YouTube

All Moms Rock 🤘🏾

You may or may not know, but I became a stay at home mom after my son was born February 2016. It was an easy transition at first, mostly because the job I left was tiring and I had previously been wanting to quit anyway. Since becoming a stay at home mom I’ve realized a few things. I think that all moms would benefit from knowing that what they are feeling is normal and we all feel it.

Being a mother is hard work

Transitioning like I said was the easy part, but the day to day chores made me just as tired as I had been when working full time. Being a mother your job never ends. Working full time you still must come home help with homework, put your child to bed and prepare yourself and the family for the next day. Being home gives me the benefit of “working” in my pjs all day but there is still work to do. I see debates all the time on social media about working mothers working harder than stay at home mothers. This is just untrue. Being a mother period wether you’re clocking in everyday or home keeping the house and children they are both hard jobs. I hate to see one mother discredited just because she may not have to go into a physical job everyday.

Stay at home moms have purpose too

I struggle so hard figuring out what I’m really doing with my life. Sometimes I feel like I’m not doing anything that benifits myself and family. It’s important for us stay at home moms to have a hobby or something that we really love aside from our children and household. Having me time is so important since 99.9% of our time is spent with little ones or being mostly in the house. Blogging and YouTube gave me that outlet I needed to connect with the outside world, but still be able to be home where I’m needed the most.

Working moms need me time too

Working ladies I’ve been there. Working long hours, barley making time for your family let alone yourself. It’s important to fit yourself into your schedule. I would take time every two weeks just to get my nails done by myself. That was my me time and I loved it. Burning yourself out at work and home with no real recovery time can lead to so many mental health and physical health issues. I see a lot of moms that feel guilty almost because they did something for themselves and you should never feel that way. Us moms move mountains for our families. We are more than deserving of me time or a “treat yo’ self” day!

Two children later and I have still not found the balance of being a stay at home mom. Sometimes the house is a mess and I don’t get everything I want done, but I’m learning that that is okay. My children are happy, fed, bathed and clothed. You may not get to all that laundry, that’s okay. Stressing yourself out will only make it worse. Spend as much time as you can with your babies and get done what you can. Work on your craft, if you’re at home start that business you’ve wanted to. Nothing is easy, but we all need an outlet and to give ourselves a break when things get rough!

Till next time,

Lynn xoxo

Hello lovelies! I recently came across the Autum tag on Britts blog and thought it was perfect for the season and I definitely wanted to participate!  The tag consists of 15 questions, so let’s hop in!


1. What Signifies Autumn To You?

Once the weather chills in the morning I am typically 100% ready to break out the pumpkin spice everything and super cozy sweaters lol this is my FAVOITE time of year!

I have a blog post all about this here, but my ultimate favorite thing to do is pop popcorn and watch movies with my daughter and son. 

3. What Is Your Most Fond Autumn Memory?

I would have to say it’s every year just before we enter the winter season we start decorating for Christmas. It’s so much fun setting up the tree and lights with my fiancé and children. They live for this time!

4. What Is Your Favorite Autumn Scent?

Every year I put on a pot of ingredients containing cinnamon , nutmeg and apples. It leaves the house smelling so good. It’s a scent that I remember from my childhood as my mother and her mother has made the same mixture.

Every year we go to the pumpkin patch just before Halloween and it’s the best. Seeing my daughter so excited and of course the blogger in me has to mention the amazing photo ops this setting gives you! 😉

6. What Is Your Favorite Autumn Song?

Honestly anything slow and mellow sets the season off for me. I’m more recently loving anything Lana Del Rey. But I wouldn’t be real if I didn’t mention that I began playing Christmas music September 25th to be exact haha! #SorryNotSorry

7. What Os Your Favorite Autumn Movie?

Honestly I’m a blood and gore type of girl. My first movie of choose has to be any of the Hellraiser series. The first, of course, is my absolute favorite!

I am in love with huge fluffy scarves and the pretty patterned scarves. I have about 3 or 4 amazing scarves I’m always dying to break out. 

12. If You Could Have A Familiar/Spirit Animal, What Would It Be?

 I suppose a cat or a bird of some sort. I just love to watch how relaxed my cat always is just bathing in the sun. Or a bird out stretching their wings, so free and uncontained. So refreshing!

13. Name One Place You Wish You Could Visit During Autumn?

We visited the Skyline Drive this summer for vacation. It was filled with Mountain View’s and and amazing pathways. I think it would be ten times more beautiful this time of year just to see all of the leaves on the trees changing colors and all of the beautiful leaves falling all you drive the amazing winding paths.

Last year consisted of so many firsts since it was my sons first time experiencing this time of year. This photo of my babies at the pumpkin patch is definitely my favorite!

Hello July! June Goals:Hit or Miss?

Happy July!

I absolutely can’t believe that June went by so fast! Today I’m showing you what my June Goals were and letting you know if I hit or Missed them! Setting goals as a blogger, youtuber and business owner helps me keep track of how much I’ve grown or gotten better over time.

Well, here are my June Goals!

  1. Reach 1,500 followers on Twitter
  2. 830 followers on Instagram
  3. Stick to blog and YouTube schedule
  4. Make a cleaning schedule

Reason For My Goals?

Twitter and Instagram

Since starting my blog, have built up my following and engagement so I can better connect with my readers. I love talking to you all VIA Twitter or seeing what you all have been up to VIA Instagram. I have discovered that it is super hard to be active on 3+ social media accounts at one time. Being active on Twitter and Instagram connects me to some amazing bloggers and YouTubers. Which has inspired me and my content as well.

Content Scheduling

As far as my blog and YouTube schedule it’s been a dream. Pre-Filming and writing out posts and drafting them is the easiest way to get things done! In the past I was writing out posts the day of and posting and editing the same day. Being able to have time in between my content uploading on Mondays and Fridays has helped me have better quality as I can take more time to see what I’d like to better.

Cleaning Schedule

If you don’t know, I am a stay at home mother of two very active children. Trying to start not one…but TWO brands while keeping up with house work has been exhausting! Although, things have been a lot easier now that my oldest is on summer break there is always something to do. A schedule makes it easier to see what needs to be done and when.

How Did I Do?

  1. 1,500 followers on Twitter |HIT
  2. 830 followers on Instagram |MISS
  3. Stick to blog and YouTube schedule | HIT
  4. Make cleaning schedule | HIT
