A Word

Hi all! I hope you're as well as you can be during all this, and remembering to take time for yourselves daily—being as gentle and kind with yourselves as you are with your loved ones. I also hope you will hold me accountable to do the same, because many times I haven't been. Although I … Continue reading A Word

Happy Anniversary!

One year ago, I took the plunge and posted my first blog post on this website, desperately clinging onto hope that I would finally begin to live life intentionally and help others in the process. This past year has been the most humbling, healing, magical year I’ve ever had, and I’m so grateful you all … Continue reading Happy Anniversary!

The Power of Discipline

            I’m a work in progress—we all are. That doesn’t mean one day we’ll be able to stop the work, it means that as life progresses, so does the work. It grows as we do, meeting us where we are, consistently calling us to task. However, many of us miss out on new direction due to … Continue reading The Power of Discipline

The Power of Friendship

            My entire life I wished for a group of friends who motivated me to keep moving forward, praised my successes, lifted me up through difficult times, and was equally the friend to me that I am to them.

The Fallacy of Being Well-Liked

            “Well-behaved women seldom make history,” is how the saying goes, right? Well, I believe that the same saying can sort of be applied to the fallacy of being well-liked. It’s awesome to be well-liked. It feels nice, makes people think you’re nice, and can make you think you’re a great person (you probably are, but … Continue reading The Fallacy of Being Well-Liked

Do I Want That? Or Did Society Tell Me To?

            If you’ve learned nothing else about me thus far, you should know that I try to march to the beat of my own drum in all aspects of life. I try not to look around at what my peers are doing, because that’s their lane, not mine. I don’t feel like I’m behind in life … Continue reading Do I Want That? Or Did Society Tell Me To?
