Practicing Patience

Instagram: @taygrewe They say patience is a virtue, that it’s the key to success. I used to have sooo much trouble with it, I wanted things to happen in my timing and on my terms. Watching people “passing me up” made me sick to my stomach and feel like something was wrong with me, “why not me?” I’m practicing patience now, reminding myself every day that my time will come. I used to make music videos back in high school…

How To Stop Feeling Discontent In Your Life

It is almost like there is this dark cloud of discontent that looms over your twenties. Everyone is on their way, but not quite there. On the outside, it might look like some of us have it figured out, but we don’t. This feeling used to drive me insane. Bring me to tears actually, until I did what I always do - Nancy Drew the sh*t out of the feeling, dive deep into where it is coming from, obsess over…

What I Know For Sure At Age 25

I’ve spent over 25 years on this planet, I know that is young, but it’s still a crazy thought. 25 is a great age! You’re still in your “early twenties,” and it’s definitely a milestone! I mean a quarter of a century is a big deal… But, even though I’m supposed to be an adult… I’ll be honest, I feel a lot like I’m just playing house. When I’m doing things like cleaning the counter, grocery shopping, or putting gas…

My Biggest Struggle Right Now

When I started this blog, the most important thing for me was to keep it real. To not only share the highlight reel, but to talk about the real stuff. And with the real stuff comes the struggle. What am I currently struggling with the most right now? Patience, it is seriously kicking me in the butt. I want so badly to reach as many people as I can, to be a NY Times Best Selling author, to be interviewed…

A Change In Perspective

Perspective is the lens through which you see the world. Basically we are all walking around this planet with the most unique pair of sunglasses on our Earth, our perspective. Have you ever been in a conversation and said something that was COMPLETELY misinterpreted? Two people, same conversation, two different interpretations. How is that possible? Yes, you SAID that but you didn’t mean it THAT way. Why would the think that? Were they even listening to you? Yes, but they…

GIVEAWAY

What To Expect In 2018 + A HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY

Starting something new is both exciting and daunting. When I set out to start my blog the mere idea of posting on social media almost every day while posting at least once a week on the blog made me so uncomfortable. I thought I would never be able to come up with enough things to talk about. And yet, here I am 37 weeks later having posted almost every day on social media and took only 2 weeks off from…

Beating The Self Sabotage Spiral

Is Mercury in retrograde or what? Full disclosure I'm not completely sure what that means, all I know is the funk is real. I can't quite pin point what is putting me in a funk, I think it's Impatience. Feeling like I should be further along than I am is a vice for me. Having moments of momentum and excitement when pursuing a dream followed by down moments, where it doesn't seem as if anything is actually going your way…

When The Honeymoon Phase Is Over AF

Remember when you used to look at each other with hearts in your eyes? Couldn’t keep your hands off each other? It’s the best feeling in the world. Sh**, you actually really love him, and the best part... he loves you back. You’re literally high on life. Then, even though you were sure it would never happen, comfort sets in, routine sets in, now you live together! He leaves his freakin’ shoes in the middle of the kitchen floor. You…
