Day 4 – 30 Day Writing Challenge

day 4

Good Morning,

Do you ever have those mornings where you wakeup and you’re already in such a good mood? Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the weekend, or maybe it’s because my brother is here from out of town. Regardless, I can tell that today is going to be a great day!

On my drive up to visit my family, my thoughts centered around the idea of selfishness. Selfishness, not in the sense of self love or self care, but in the desire to achieve personal gain and recognition in every situation.

Day 2 – 30 Day Writing Challenge

Hi friends,

I almost didn’t write today because i’m feeling kind of tired this morning. ( Can you believe that, it’s only day 2 lol ) But i’ve got my cup of coffee and i’m ready to take on the day!

I’m doing this for many reasons and I would get off track if I explained them all now. Generally speaking, I feel like it’s important to allow time in the day for self reflection; to just stop and detach from all the things you need to do to focus on whats going on inside.

So what is going on this morning?

What’s Stopping You?

what's stopping you?


I am officially writing my first blog post! Starting a blog is something I have always envisioned doing but never actually took the time to create. The more I think about it, that seems like a common trend in a lot of things in life, wanting to do something but never having the time. “Maybe one day” or “After I graduate” or even “Next week.” Seriously, so many times I have let myself come up with any excuse in the book to not get this blog started. I will admit, most of the excuses came out of fear, I’m sure. Starting something new is pretty scary and vulnerable, especially for a perfectionist like me.
