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.

I worked as the full-time personal assistant/Director…

The Evolution of Blogging: I Wish It Was Personal Again

 When I think back to the magical world of blogging I first uncovered years ago, it seems like a completely different medium than what it is today. It felt like every post was a hidden gem – the blogosphere was untouched, unsaturated, and always hiding something new, waiting to be discovered. To be honest, I really miss when it was that way. It was deep and insightful, innocent and pure, cultivating connections and inspiring self-reflection. As time has passed, though, I personally feel like it has lost a bit of that magic. Growing up, I loved to read. I was…

How Relationships Can Help You Find Food & Body Freedom

I think most people, if not everyone, struggles with poor body image at some point. Feeling self-conscious, alone, and trapped, whether that be just for a moment or for a long period of time. Hyper-aware of how they look, and limiting their lives because of a lack of self-confidence. Similarly, disordered eating habits and thoughts seem to be all too common nowadays. Eating disorders like anorexia, bulimia, and orthorexia are all on the rise. But even if someone doesn’t have an “official” eating disorder, it seems like almost everyone struggles with some version of disordered eating. That might be undereating,…
