Winter Blues

It’s been a hot minute since I posted last (“a hot minute” meaning two months!), and while I’ve been sitting on a draft of this post for longer than that, I haven’t published it until now. Maybe because I was in the thick of these emotions and thoughts and needed more time to process them,Continue reading “Winter Blues”

Sincerity – Lost In This Online Era

We live in a unique time. The internet has become the center of everything, from business & commerce to communication & relationships. We essentially live online – Instagram, Facebook, Netflix, Pinterest, gossip and personal blogs, and the list could go on (and on and on and on). Social media platforms have become so common thatContinue reading “Sincerity – Lost In This Online Era”

My Blog: A Path to Healing and Purpose

I’ve been reflecting on this blog and my writing the past couple days. Why does my blog feel so precious to me, regardless of followers/popularity? I think we can all admit that there are very few things in life we’ll joyfully spend a ton of time on without expecting anything in return. But this blog?Continue reading “My Blog: A Path to Healing and Purpose”

Christmas 2019 and Trusting His Truth

How is it that Christmas has already come and gone?! Christmas was yesterday, and it was such a beautiful day! Both literally and figuratively. Like, it was actually 55 degrees outside in WISCONSIN (insert “shocked but thankful but kind of worried about global warming and altered seasons” emoji here). It’s been a whirlwind of aContinue reading “Christmas 2019 and Trusting His Truth”

Taking Control of Your Mind

Have you ever woken up, and within the first few seconds of consciousness, been bombarded with hundreds of thoughts at once? From the moment you open your eyes and look at the clock, you calculate how many minutes you have to get ready before you head out the door. You mentally review your schedule forContinue reading “Taking Control of Your Mind”

Worthlessness, I Don’t Want to Forget You

There’s something I never want to forget. The more I reflect on my journey to happiness, my blog, and the impact I want to have on people whose paths cross mine, the more I hear the words in my head, “Don’t forget where you came from; don’t forget who you once were.” I feel tuggingContinue reading “Worthlessness, I Don’t Want to Forget You”

Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving

The day before yesterday was Thanksgiving, and while I initially planned on publishing this post then, I decided to spend Thanksgiving Day living fully in the moment and reflecting on everything I’m thankful for! In line with my morning journaling (check out “My Early Morning Routine” post from earlier this month!), I believe there isContinue reading “Giving Thanks on Thanksgiving”

Gratitude for Living the Life We Do

I have a question for you: Do you ever think about how blessed/lucky we are to live the way we do? Earlier this Fall, I drove past an older woman kneeling down in her yard pulling weeds from her flower beds. I looked up at the sky and thought about what a perfect day itContinue reading “Gratitude for Living the Life We Do”

We’re All A Work in Progress

“Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress – which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.” I saw this and knew instantly I wanted to write about it. This is something I’ve struggled with a ton, and I know so many others do too! I’m 27Continue reading “We’re All A Work in Progress”
