Dear tortured soul, Sometimes the people you love the most, hurt you the most. I know you loved me more than anything, and I know you showed your love in unconventional ways, which was all you knew. I loved you for it anyways. I was so young when you were the most you. I regret you not getting the opportunity to know me more when I became the most me. I wish you could have been here to see me do big things that I know you would have encouraged 100 percent. You were there, sup
Craving more genuine connections. How many of us have experienced:

Hit you up because I’m bored.
Oops I forgot to respond...for a week.
U up? Sorry I was busy. What is a friend? It is a single soul dwelling in two bodies." -Aristotle Recently read the tragic story of a man who committed suicide because he asked for help and nobody was there to support him. His friend was busy, and by the time he got there, it was too late. Coincidentally, I wrote this post t
Brave girl, never settle again. It has taken me years to love myself, to trust myself, and to be myself, and I am damn sure not going to let anyone talk me into accepting less than what I deserve, being treated as less than I am, and striving for less than what I am capable of achieving. Often we settle for friendships, relationships, and careers that are not for us, that do not serve us, and that do not make us happy. We must stop this pattern of settling for less! We deserv
2018 has been a wild ride already babes! So much has happened in these last few months that has changed who I am, where my business is headed, and what my future looks like. I stepped away from blogging for a bit to focus on both personal and business growth, but now I'm back! I'm inspired, motivated, and excited! Now let's get real. Things have been a little interesting around here. I have gone through some relationship changes, some business changes, and some personal strug
With every year that passes, each birthday we celebrate serves as a reminder of how quickly life moves. As my birthday approaches, I always feel that it is important to reflect on the moments that brought me closer to the big day once again. So much happens in one year, and it is amazing to consider all of the things that you experienced, the trials you faced, the people you met, and the unexpected events that you now cherish. Every year, for a few weeks leading up to the big
Compassion, love, selflessness. What do these words mean to you? Do you believe in them? Do you feel them? There have been times in my life where I have felt these toward other people, but the other day I felt them in a whole new way. Tuesday April 18th, 2017 Tuesday April 18th, 2017 started out as any other day. I woke up a bit tired, and I had some things on my mind, but I hopped out of bed and got the day started. Had some breakfast, took a shower, worked out, then got sta
So here I am, 25 years old. I have a small business, I have three degrees, and I have no idea what I am doing with my life. I have always pushed myself harder than most, and I have always aspired to do more and to be more. When I was younger, I was very ambitious, and that attitude carried into my adult years. Part of this relentless need to be successful or to "find my way" as they say, has led me to question so many things that probably should not have been my concern at th
When you are younger and someone asks you want you want to be when you grow up, your first response might be a doctor, or an astronaut, or a dinosaur. When you get into high school and when you go off to college, they ask you again. This time you might respond with a teacher, a marine biologist, or a systems analyst. When we are children, those around us let our imaginations run wild and allow us to believe in whatever we wish. Once we get older, they put limitations on us an
The Early Twenties Notes to myself. So 25, here we are, two months in. No longer in the 18-24 age range category. Ok, moving up in the world. 1 year older, 1 year wiser. I'm sure of it. I'm sure I've learned more in the last few years than the previous 20. What did my early twenties teach me though? So many tough, but valuable lessons. So many tears, so much laughter, and so much heartache. It is really true that as you get older your friends become few, but even more valuabl
