Brainstorming some new #organization blog posts for upcoming months! (It seems like y’all REALLY love those!) and I want to hear from #teamBTD on what YOU would like to see! We’re thinking some kind of accessories? Or how about FRIDGE organization?
QUESTION:: what kinds of organizational posts do y’all want to see?! Comment below and let us know!
LETS TALK MORNING ROUTINES! I’ve always kinda hated how morning routines were presented bc everyone is different and not one routine fits all SO I took it upon myself to look into different routines depending on the type of person you are. Or what you’re in search of! And I r just been really INTO IT lately as I’m trying to find my groove for 2018 🤗 All that info is on BTD, and I promise, once you find a routine that fits YOU, it’ll change your day (and actually LIFE) for the better!
QUESTION:: do you have a morning routine?! Please share what it looks like! And if not, what frustrates you about mornings or what do you struggle with?! Congratulations @megriley2 on wining the giveaway! Please email lisel@brightontheday@com to claim your prize! .

I think sometimes we imagine we’ll get to a place where things aren’t hard anymore.
Really. Like we’re all waiting for something to end, something to start, or something to stay longer.
We fantasize about life without pain, struggle, hardship; a life that feels more “full”, more complete, lacking in nothing. We all have THAT THING we want to get, accomplish, have, hold, etc. And usually someone else has it. And so we compare and covet - throw a pity party. We want it too. But here’s the thing: we can’t simultaneously embrace what God has called us to do in the season we’re in WHILE envying or focusing on someone else’s. We so often miss the beauty and opportunity for growth and gratitude that is right in front of us by focusing on what’s not. I’m pouring out my heart on BTD today about pain, struggle, pursuing contentment, and what I think that looks like. It’s raw and unfiltered - coming from a place of processing (learning) rather than completion (maturity or overcoming). If you don’t read any blog post I publish this month, read this one. Xo, B
Since this post is hard to comment on (pretty heavy-ish), I wanted to provide other topics to get a conversation going(answer/comment on ANY) of the following:: 👇🏼
What’s your favorite thing about Instagram right now? Do you like posts like this?
Do you have any requests for topics?
Would you be brave enough to share how God is working in your life right now?
Or what you’re struggling with?
What’re you waiting for in your life?

We will accept first 2,500 comments and will choose winner on Monday. Not sure what we’re giving away today but it’ll be something we love (as always!) Congratulations @allyj105 on wining the giveaway! Please email lisel@brightontheday@com to claim your prize! .

Can’t get enough READING in lately 🤓 today I’m sharing 5 books to MOTIVATE you in 2018 + my current reading list (well, only the motivational ones) on BTD!
QUESTION: what’s your favorite motivational book for life or business? It could be one you just read or that you’ve heard is good! OR a TED talk!? Comment below and share with #teamBTD. Congratulations @audreythornton on wining the giveaway! Please email lisel@brightontheday@com to claim your prize! .
Your ability to FOCUS is a skill that will SET YOU APART from just about anyone, at anything - work, school, career, fitness etc. Problem is, it’s one of the hardest skills to master. But if we don’t learn how to control our mind to FOCUS, then we’re really cheating ourselves out of our BEST. In proper Brighton fashion, I've been in a black hole of curiosity re: this whole FOCUS thing and have come to realize another term for it - MENTAL TOUGHNESS. How to get it, what it looks like, and how to cultivate it. People who are successful usually are extremely mentally tough and they've learned to become emotionally intelligent - very imperative to lasting success. I’ve been focusing on mental toughness (and emotional intelligence, or controlling my emotions so I can focus on my skills) myself lately and it’s been amazing. Read more about it in today’s post ❤️
Question:: did you play a sport growing up? If so, what was it? And remember any advice your coach would always repeat?! Do you still apply it today? (Or hear their voice saying it ha) congratulations @heatherowillis on winning the giveaway! Please email to claim your prize! .

I know it's not original, but I'm back on that workout grind! Give me a (🙌🏼) if you are too! Really though, I saw a picture of myself from when I was exercising regularly and it motivated me like crazy. So, to help with all of us trying to get back into it, I pulled together my favorite WORKOUT BRANDS on BTD today! And y'all, these aren't just cute, they're FUNCTIONAL. Bc if they aren't functional, I'm not wearing them to the gym (or in my living room to do BBG 😆) I'm not that girl.

What you don’t do determines what you can do. Our lives are governed by the choices we make and oftentimes we’re choosing (and doing) things without putting much thought into it. Being busy for business’ sake is actually a form of laziness: “lazy thinking and indiscriminate action”. It’s easy to go about life living in reactionary mode; the challenge lies in building a life with focus and intention. Being selective with our time, focus, and attention is difficult but critical. We’re always going to feel like we don’t have enough time. But that’s actually not true. “A lack of time is actually a lack of priorities.” It’s important that we think about WHAT we’re doing rather than simply HOW we’re doing it. You want to make sure you’re doing the RIGHT things. And thinking critically about the system (whether it be a business, process, work-out routine, etc.) as a whole. If you’re into this stuff, you should read today’s blog post where I dish out all I’ve been learning and thinking about since reading one of @timferriss books! ALSO if you have time, LISTEN TO MY STORIES TODAY!
QUESTION: what’s the best advice you’ve received for 2018? Or if that’s too hard to nail down, what’s just some good advice you’ve come across lately?
For today’s giveaway, we’ll be giving away this book! Or if you already own it, we can figure something else out! We’ll be accepting the first 2,000 entries, but be sure you answer TODAY (Monday December 8th) Congratulations @mackmerritt7 on winning this book!! Email to claim your prize!

I’ve always got something I’m reading and I wanted to share a devotional book I recently went through that REALLY helped shape the way I think. “Lies Women Believe” (by Nancy Demoss) has been such a light for me this past year in learning how to hold my thoughts captive and live wholeheartedly for the Lord. I have so much to say but I’ll keep it short because I’ve got lots of faith content coming to the blog this year! I’m thrilled AND SCARED to be sharing more of my heart with y’all this year!
But I KNOW God has plans for BTD that are better than anything I could ever imagine. Or do on my own. I’m so grateful to be a daughter of the King! And this year I’m committed to being obedient, fearless, and vulnerable at the risk of whatever it takes and whatever I may lose. May all the glory be to God!

QUESTION: Tell us about a book you’ve read recently that impacted your faith? Or if you’re not a believer, tell us about a book that has inspired you, helped with personal growth or helped with life’s big questions. Congratulations @amyowalthall on winning the book Lies Women Believe!! Email to claim your prize!
So excited to read your responses!

2017 has been SUCH a year, but I’m REALLY excited about what’s to come! And quite frankly, I’m just really excited about RIGHT NOW. TODAY. The Present. And living my BEST life RIGHT NOW. Anyway, some of my favorite moments of 2017 revolve around getting settled into my new home (that I closed this past January!) Organizing my closet was my first feat and I’m so glad to have that behind me and find a place for everything! It’s actually about time to revisit and purge a bit!
