    So You Started a Blog…

    Literally everyone and their mom is “building a brand”. Which is great, I love seeing people sharing their passions on social media. But scrolling through blogs and Instagram, I see some things that make me cringe. Not in a bad way, it just brings back memories from my early blogging days. We spend a lot of time putting out content, but we don’t spend time talking about meaningful content and how to go about that. … I am by no means an influencer. This is just my advice that’s based on my experiences with creating content. So you started a blog…what’s next and what should you do? Find your niche.…

    Takers // Coffee Chats

    Welcome to my new series! I always see YouTubers do these posts where they eat/drink and talk about a topic. So I thought I would do that in a written format. Grab some coffee, tea, or whatever you want and join me in this discussion (only if you want to of course). I want to talk about selfishness today. Everyone is a little selfish at times. But I’ve been really frustrated because I feel like I am surrounded by takers. People that are only around you when they want someone. They take, take, and take until you just feel exhausted. They don’t think of how their actions affects you or…

    I Want to be Great

    We all want to, right? We all want greatness and we all want to be successful. But what happens when you get too caught up in it? Perfectionism in combination with impatience can be debilitating at times. I am usually driven and this is partly because I strive for flawlessness. Not flawlessness in a beauty sense, but I hate mistakes and they easily upset me. On the other hand, focusing on goals and aspirations typically gives me more energy. I enjoy hard work and achieving goals I set. The pros, for the most part, outweigh the cons. What happens when they don’t? At times, it can seem like too much.…

    FOREST

    So…I was going to write a poem about forests because I was really inspired by the photos I took. But I am no poet and I wouldn’t do “the forest” justice. I guess you should just use your imagination as you enjoy these photos.     I shot these photos in the woods where I used to run cross country. If you are curious, it’s in Missouri. Being back there brought back so many positive memories. I truly felt connected to nature in these moments. It had just rained the night before so everything was lush. Most of these photos are pretty basic looking, but they hold more sentimental value…

    AUTOPILOT

    When you just can’t deal… I gave up my control. I’ve let life just happen. I’ve sat back and allowed co-pilots to steer me. This sounds great, right? Just sitting back and relaxing. Let me tell you, it hasn’t been great. For the past few weeks, I have done the minimum. I go to school, I go to work, I sleep, I eat, and I repeat this process every day. I’m doing the minimum, but I still feel like there’s not enough time in the day. There was a time when I wanted to do everything. And I basically did ‘do everything’. I over programmed myself. I became so involved…

    22 Things in 22 Years

    I am officially 22 years young! Yes, I am that annoying person that announces their birthday. It might be the day after my birthday when I post this. Anyway, I have seen a lot of posts about “things I have learned in…” insert number of years.  Adulting is one giant teachable moment. Most of my learning experiences have come from the past few years. Without further ado, here are 22 things I’ve learned in 22 years. It’s not the end of the world. It might seem like a big deal, but it’s probably not. Life goes on and you will overcome it. Follow your passions. Life is too short and you shouldn’t…

    March Captures

    “It was one of those March days when he sun shines hot and the wind blown cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.” ~ Great Expectations. March was fine, but now it is April AKA my birth month! This is part 2 of my March Captures. Look at Part 1 Here. I’m just going to jump right in. Here are my photos from the month of March. You might notice that there isn’t very much color, that is because nothing has bloomed yet where I live. Sorry if you like vibrancy. I hope you enjoy these photos. Tell me about your March in the…

    You’ll Never Have A Boyfriend Because…

    Can we just stop? Can we stop constantly asking women if they have a boyfriend? Can we stop putting so much value on a person’s relationship status. I am not against relationships and I am not against people who take pride in their relationship. I am simply tired of “well-meaning” strangers asking me why I don’t have a boyfriend. Like you just met me and the only thing you want to know about me is if I am seeing someone. You don’t want to know what I am passionate about or what I am studying or even what my job is. I get the feeling that to some people, my…

    They Were Hurting Too

    When you are hurting emotionally, it’s easy to be consumed with your own feelings. It’s much easier to despise the person (or persons) that hurt you, than it is to just forgive them and move on with your life. I haven’t felt this kind of hurt in a long time, but I stumbled upon a quote one day that said, “forgive those who have hurt you, for they were hurting too”. It made me think of those times where I was hurting. I never even thought about this, I was just blind with anger, self-loathing, sadness, and basically all of the feelings possible. I don’t think this justifies someone’s hurtful…

    A Weekend in Nashville

    I’ve been to Nashville many times, but I go home wanting more each time. Not because it is a bad city, but because I always want to explore it further and it seems I always run out of time. To sum it up, Nashville has great food, great music, and a great atmosphere. You don’t have to have a plan when you go there, you can simply walk down the street and find something to do.       Thanks for reading! _________________________________________ Social Media ♥ Instagram | Tumblr Check out this post!
