How to Really Have a Healthy, Happy Holiday Season

Per usual, October was approximately three seconds long. I feel like the past few months have been a complete whirlwind, and things are only going to continue to pick up from here on out! Thanksgiving is less than 3 weeks away! Writing that out really makes it hit me. It’s going to be 2018 before we know it. I wanted to write a post about the holiday season before we really get in the thick of it, because I know it can be a stressful time for many. It’s also a very magical time – it’s my absolute favorite time of year.…

You Are Not Destined for Weight Gain, Cognitive Decline, Acne, or Fatigue

Whenever I’m with my family or I’m back home, sleeping in the room I grew up in, distant memories randomly flood into my brain. The memories seem random, but I have a theory that it’s always for a specific reason. I’m not sure what sparked it, but last weekend while visiting home, I had a flashback image of myself at our family cabin. The memory was of me laying on the bed with a book, watching TV.

The Importance of Self-Care & My Favorite Ways to Show Myself Love

It seems only fitting to follow up my post about the glorification of being busy with a post all about self-care. Do you see a theme here? I think many of us would be much better off if we took more time to slow down and show ourselves some love. I truly believe that self-care is incredibly important. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is. It took me a long time to really swallow this truth – if you don’t take care of yourself first, there is no way you can fully be there for others. Without filling up your own…

The Glorification of Being Busy

I want you to know that it’s okay if you’re not always busy. If I’m being completely honest with you, my ultimate goal in life is to not be busy. I want a “simple life.” One where I don’t feel like I’m always bouncing from task to task, place to place, person to person, cramming as much as I can into each and every day. I want to work as little as I can for maximum output in order to have as much free time as possible. That’s the end goal. Free time means more time to do exactly what fuels my…

Quitting My Full-Time Job, Slowing Down, & Being a 22-Year-Old Entrepreneur

This post is long overdue. I’ve wanted to write this since the moment I quit my full-time job, but the timing just never felt right. The other day, though, I felt like it was finally time. Part of me was putting it off because I don’t know what else to say other than, “I quit my job and am now officially working for myself full-time.” The other part of me was putting it off because I knew there actually was so much to say surrounding it – so much that I didn’t know where to begin. I worked as the full-time personal assistant/Director…
