Why You Should Do Things Even If You’re Alone
A great, last minute, opportunity presented itself to me this week. I didn't want to turn it down, but I thought about it because I had no one to join me. Who wants to go to an event alone? The event landed on a Thursday and Friday. I already have a small pool of friends … Continue reading Why You Should Do Things Even If You’re Alone

Why You Need To Forgive
I've been on a conscious journey of growth the past five months. I say conscious because we all grow and evolve naturally, but there is a different growth that comes with the decision to change. I've found that a fundamental piece of growth is forgiveness. I've heard this concept before, but never really understood the … Continue reading Why You Need To Forgive
I listened to Halsey's new song the night it came out and I haven't stopped since. Yes, I like the melody and it brings a chill vibe into my life, but it also intrigues me. One line in particular grabs my attention every time. "It's funny how the warning signs can feel like they're butterflies". … Continue reading Warning Signs
