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…


Changing The Way You Think About Risk

“If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much room” It’s my favorite quote to sarcastically spout off in pretty much any potentially relevant situation. Usually prefaced with, “you know what I always say…” followed by an eye roll from anyone who has heard me say it a million times. I saw it once on Pinterest and decided it was going to be one of the mottos of my life. I’m not sure who said it, I…


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…

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…

The Number One Thing I Use To Make Decisions

“Trust your intuition,” “trust your gut,” we get it! We’ve seen that quote a million times on Pinterest and if you click the hashtag #quoteoftheday I’m sure you’ll find it posted a million more times. If you don’t know this already, I LOOOVE a good inspirational quote. But, it irks me when a really important or profound statement gets overused to the point where we are almost desensitized to it; “Trust your intuition,” is one of those quotes for me.…


My Advice On How To Get Good Advice

How many times have you consulted your single friend on relationship or dating advice? How many times have you consulted your equally lost mid twenties friends on how to figure out your life? My advice here is, be careful whom you take advice from, including mine. Which is a pretty counter productive statement for me to use, but I genuinely believe this. I do my best to only offer advice when I truly believe that I feel qualified to offer…
