I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. The beginning of the year is a fresh start for many people and a time to take inspired action towards personal goals. This can be anything from making healthy lifestyle changes, learning a new language, taking a cooking class, or learning how to play an instrument. There are so many possibilities and opportunities! The start of the year is also a great time to break bad habits such as watching too much T.V, eating too much junk food, smoking cigarettes, hoarding, or any other habit that does not serve your highest good. New Year’s resolutions are rooted in self-improvement, and the end goal is always about personal betterment.
One very important thing to note is that you don’t always have to wait for the new year to begin to make positive changes in your life. You may begin to make changes for the better whenever you feel inspired to do so. Inspiration can come at any time, just roll with it! For example, is it your goal to run a 5K? Grab a pair of running shoes and head outside for a run! If it’s been a while since you’ve been running, that’s ok. Start with a walk around the block and build up to that. The next day, walk a little further, and the day after, walk a little further than that. Do this every day until you are able to run. Soon you’ll be able to run a mile, then two miles, then 3.11 miles (which equates to a 5k). Goals are reached by taking single steps towards them. Large goals can be broken down into smaller, more manageable goals. This will help you feel less overwhelmed by the larger end-goal.
One great piece of advice that I abide by is to keep going at it even when I do not feel inspired to do so. The truth is, you will not always maintain the same amount of motivation throughout your journey towards your goal. The key is to push forward anyway. Do not wait until you find the motivation again. Successful people keep on despite lacking the motivation to press forward. That is one of the major secrets to success. When you continue working towards your goal even when your not motivated to, the rewards of success are that much sweeter. The rewards you reap will be more than worth the effort. Not only that, you will inspire other people to keep going even when they don’t feel like doing so. You’ll lead by example and show other’s how far discipline can take them with a bit of effort.
So what are your goals and aspirations? No matter what they are, you have my full support and I wish you nothing but the best. Good luck in all of your endeavors!

Happiest Seasons Greetings to all. I hope that everyone is enjoying the season. While it looks a bit different, we are adapting and growing. I have changed the way I approach many things, including my volunteering! I have recently started as a volunteer coach for a sport that I love, gymnastics! Helping youth develop their skills and grow in confidence is something that can truly make a difference to them! Blessed to be able to donate my time to bring the sport I love to a high school in my community.
The holiday season is upon us! I want to wish you all a wonderful and safe holiday season, no matter what you celebrate. With that said, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Boxing Day, Have a Blessed Solstice, and lets not forget Festivus-for the rest of us! 🙂
We may not be able to celebrate the holidays the way that we’re used to, but that’s okay! The holiday is about spreading love and cheer and we can still do so while maintaining proper safety measures. Put on your favorite holiday gear and get ready to send a video holiday card, or take photos and make your own holiday cards that you can mail or safely drop off to the recipient. Food and toy drives are a great way to spread cheer throughout your community, remember to follow all rules and safety guidelines.
Remember that YOU are what makes the holidays a special time of year. When you use your talents and gifts to bring joy to others, you make the world a better place to live. The holidays are merrier and the celebrations more jubilant when you share your love and appreciation with those around you. Your warmth and kindness is just what the world needs today, thank you!
With much love and joy,
Ms. American Coronet
The past couple of days I have been living in my kitchen, cooking hundreds of baked goods for my local first responders. If you are like me and love to bake, this is a great way to help your community! It was amazing to see the excitement of my local paramedics, firefighters, and police officers as I delivered the baskets. I wish I had some pictures to share, but most of the time my hands were covered in flour 🙂
If you love to bake too, lets exchange recipes!

Can you say AMAZING! Look at all these toys! I was so honored to be able to take part in this years Toys for Tots charity event! The biggest Thank you to everyone involved and to Tina for all of her hard work to make this possible! I can’t wait to see the faces of the families I get to deliver gifts to! I love this time of year!
This past month I teamed up with my Pageant sister Little Miss Ohio Addison King and we hosted a toy drive benefitting Mercy Children’s Hospital in Toledo Ohio. Our toy drive was a huge success. We were able to present the hospital with about 500+ toys for the kids in the hospital this Christmas.
I teamed up with 2021 Little Miss Buckeye State and we hosted a toy drive for a local Children’s Hospital here in Ohio we had so many nice people and stores help us out.
I I am excited to to use my Foundation Move It for Cancer, to support the Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children. I am collecting items for the Sunshine pack for the next 12 days.
Now that it is officially the holiday season, I wanted to share some community service project ideas! With the harsh season of winter, there are families struggling with the cold, without coats, hats, or gloves. Every year I donate all of the winter clothing items I can and travel around my community asking others to do the same.
This year, I have created a contactless method of donating. I am advertising my project on social media, and having donors place bags of items on their front porch that I then pick up! This way we are being safe, and doing something good for those in need.
Currently, I have about four bags full of items, and I cannot wait to see how much we can give this season!
Covid-19 has been a challenge for all of us this year. However, I have still been out and about in my community. For the past two months, I have been coaching my high school cheer team while maintaining social distance standards. It has been great to give the athletes the opportunity to participate in the sport that they love!
