Live Your Life With Gumption!

This post is in partnership with Gumption!. All opinions are my own.

Do you have Gumption? Or better yet.. do you know what it means to have Gumption? You may have never heard the word before and that’s okay! Today, I am going to talk about what Gumption is, how you can start to live with it, & about a company who encouraging us all to EMBODY IT!

First things first, what in the world is Gumption? Well, I’ll tell you!
Basically, a person with Gumption is a boss babe that doesn’t take no for an answer! You go after everything you want and don’t sit around waiting for something to happen. You take initiative, not because you’re not afraid, but because you’re going to be bold and have the audacity to take risks despite the outcome. Boyyyy do I wish I could wholeheartedly say I am full of Gumption! I’m not going to lie, I have been my own worst enemy more times than I would like to admit, but I acknowledge it and I am working on it and I promise I am getting there. I have days where I am FULL of Gumption. :-)

I am excited to be working with Gumption! because their mission is to “help inspire women to live this beautiful gift of life with Gumption” and I want to inspire you to do the same. So how does a shop inspire you? They do this in two ways. Number one, they sell items that embody the gumption spirit. You know that sweatshirt that feels good and says something that just makes you feel great about yourself? Or that super comfortable dress? YES. Things like that! Number two, they support amazing small businesses that are ran by women, aim to help people in need, that are ethically made in the U.S., and that may be super hard to find! I mean, can we say AMAZING COMPANY?! I love it so much!
