Mantra Monday VXI: I Am Becoming

Author: Joe Lizz I am becoming.   The person I want to be. Each and every day, I take another step toward that person.    Bumps in the road are there for a reason and everything is happening according to a greater plan. While it can feel like time passes slowly when we find ourselves in those “in-between” feeling moments, such moments offer us the time we need to reflect, digest, and progress. Go easy on yourself. While you should always push forward, you don’t have to push so hard.   Be gentle with yourself; evolve and grow in a place of peace. At no day, at no specific time are you required to do more than you are capable of doing...

Mantra Monday XII: Lack of Motivation Can Be Motivating

Author: Joe Lizz I’m going to be honest: I had a really hard time writing this particular Mantra Monday blog post.   I’ve been sick on and off all week and my motivation to do anything more than lay in bed has been nonexistent and I waited until almost the last possible minute to sit down and write this up.  Instead of dragging my feet longer and making up more excuses, I decided to use my lack of motivation as the topic for this week: finding motivation within my lack of motivation, so to speak.   We all have those days — that sometimes turn into a week — where we feel unmotivated and uninspired. Whether it’s at work, in our personal lives, or as a...

Self Care Sunday VII: The Value of Discipline

At Blue Ridge Hemp, our core values are nearly entirely rooted in the premise of self care. In fact, it is what makes our brand so great! Self care is one of the few concepts in our world that is universally valued and all-inclusive. This means that at Blue Ridge Hemp, we truly include EVERYONE. While not everyone will partake in the practice of yoga, Gratitude Friday, or even believe in the practice of using CBD, you would be hard-pressed to find an individual out there who does not believe in the value of practicing self care in some way. It is a vital component of being a healthy, functioning, and happy human being. However, in order to practice self care, one must have a personal definition of what...

Mantra Monday XI: It's Not Always Sunshine and Rainbows

Author: Joe Lizz Editor: Alexa Bonsey It’s not always sunshine and rainbows.  And it can’t be.  Just like everything else in life, there must be balance; we must ebb and flow like the sun and the moon. There is poetic beauty in the simplicity of that balance. We fill our hearts and souls with happiness from our greatest days, and from our worst we build strength and courage. Within every moment, we constantly grow and evolve into newer versions of ourselves.   - Comparisons Can Be Toxic Every single human being lives a human life, and with humanity comes moments in which we are tested, moments from which we learn great compassion and understanding, and moments from which we rise up strong....

Self Care Sunday VII: Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It

  Author: Kayleigh Sedlack Editor: Alexa Bonsey One of the biggest lessons that I’ve learned since moving to Asheville and becoming part of the Blue Ridge Hemp Co. team is self-care, through various methods.  Will has been a huge advocate from day one to make sure that, in all areas, each and every member of our team takes care of ourselves so that we can best contribute to each day.   Seeing every team member practice self-care in their own ways and watching how it has positively affected them has been such a blessing to me.  I really look up to our team and am thankful that we all hold one another accountable for growth.   A lot of times, self-care can...
