Today's Truth: Achievement & New Year's Resolutions

Today's Truth: Achievement & New Year's Resolutions

We have arrived at the last day of the first month of 2020 and already, we’ve lost a lot of steam. Those resolutions are already lurking in our minds, silently judging, expectantly disappointed.

To resolve is simply not enough. There must be action and planning… and then follow through. That follow through requires reflection. From there, you can cycle through again and again until you actually reach your goal.

This year, and from now on, let’s achieve — instead of resolving.


Today’s truth is this: without action, they’re just dreams. Dreams are nice and all (especially when you’re asleep) but if you truly want to be your authentic self, the first step is honesty. You’ll have to be honest with you.

It’s scary. Absolutely. So, take each step in stride, as a matter of fact — take baby steps. What one small thing can you do today to work towards the future you want? Start there. Once you’ve mastered that, add another tiny taskDon’t go big until you’re darn good and ready …but don’t let that make you stagnant, either.

I wish you all a very happy new year. May 2020 be all that you genuinely work towards.

fun facts


What’s in your shop?

Stickers first and foremost. I started the shop after I realized I wasn't the only paper girl who was itching for simple stickers for women of color. You'll find digitally illustrated sticker sheets, die cut stickers, and printable/digital stickers. 

Limited-time products also include: magnets, bookmarks, post cards, and greeting cards. 

How’d you get started?

I started the blog almost five years ago as an outlet for myself, but it quickly transitioned into being just about my hobbies: travel, taking photos, and scrapbooking.

Through my blogging journey I discovered bullet journaling and my scrapbooking passions were re-ignited. I began sharing my journey with these and quickly saw a need for the stickers I was already making for myself. I gave myself six months to open up a shop, and half way through my time frame we lived through a pandemic. During my time at home I now had NO MORE excuses, so I opened up my shop!

Why the name Love Becomes Her?

I started the blog on Halloween night and one of my favorite movies (Death Becomes Her) was on. I was a major cynic back in the day but I felt that the name suited the blog because at the time so many of my blog posts were around my long-distance relationship with my now-husband. I always assumed I'd change the name later, but I think I just love it too much. It reminds me of how far I have come with learning love
