On Monday I mentioned one of the healthy habits you can add into your life this year is to take some time for yourself and love yourself a bit more.
It’s no secret that we live in a world filled with high expectations. Living in the digital-age has made it very easy to compare ourselves to other people.

My backpack and duffle bag have become my trusty companions for the next 6 months. Traveling minimal is actually quite new for me, so I really had to experiment with what it is I actually need in addition to doing some research.
I’d be lying if I said I never used to overpack on my trips. However, I’ve actually found that having less things makes life so much easier on the go and also makes the experience much more fun! It’s nice to know that you’re using everything that you bring and also leaving space both mentally and physically to enjoy the experience and people around you.

Good Morning! Looking back, I’m sad to say that I didn’t make it to my 30 day challenge. Writing every day is much harder than I anticipated. However, my new goal is to keep up with posting now that school is over and I have more time!
As some of you may know, I’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling lately and plan to continue to travel after my stay in Hawaii this summer. It honestly feels like a dream come true being able to explore all the places I’ve dreamed of going.

However, I’m a firm believer that if you want something in life, you just need to make it a priority and make it happen.

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.
