Concept of Home

I have been struggling for quite some time (since moving really) on nailing down where home is for me. It has been a weird transition in my life because upon moving out this time it became very clear that it was more permanent than the times before. I was not off to school and returning back. It was me moving forward with my life and away from the childhood home, where I grew up and the place where I largely became who I am today. Moving was also a big step in my life and relationship with Ryan; it was really the beginning of planning a future together.

Self Love During A Slump

We have all been there, some maybe more than most. Those times when everything seems to be going wrong and you are lost in your own world. Maybe things just don’t seem to be working out as you intended, or you are not progressing/moving forward like you had hoped, or you’ve been facing some hardship and bad news. It seems like no matter what you do or how much you do nothing changes and you have lost your purpose.

Why You Need A Digital Detox

Even If It Is Just For A Day

I will be the first to admit that I can be extremely addicted to my phone. When I wake up in the morning, well most mornings at least, I roll over and check my phone for the time. Lucky for me I am not so popular that I have a ton of missed messages, most of my friends know by now that texting is the wrong way to get ahold of me. But the first thing I do, 9 times out of 10 before I am even out of bed, is to start scrolling through Instagram, checking all the stories and new photos. Then I go through my notifications, my emails and check all the updates on my games (yes, I still play a fair amount of mobile games… will I ever grow up).

Moving On

I have thought about writing this blog post countless times over the past few months and I am glad to say I finally can. I QUIT MY JOB! After months of going back and forth, weighing the pro’s and cons and debating whether or not it was the right choice, I bit the bullet and just did it.

Is The Struggle Always Worth It?

I quit my job … and then I got roped back into staying. I made a timeline for quitting my job … and then the deadline passed. I have talked, thought and decided I am quitting my job more times than I can count and then proceeded to back down. I am now starting to feel like the boy who cried wolf. Will I ever just quit?

Let’s Talk

We all know the stories about the mighty warrior who sets off to battle the deadliest beast in the land. This warrior is brave, heroic and strong, but the duel they are to face will test them in ways they never thought imaginable. They encounter challenges, adversities, suffering, and sorrow along the way, all leading up to the greatest fight of their life. We all know these stories and we all know how they end, the warrior triumphs over the beast and come away victorious.
