Turning 30 | Reflection

I can’t believe I’m leaving the 20s behind and entering a new decade of age. With milestones like these, you tend to reflect a bit more than usual. What might be scary to some is exciting to me. I’m looking forward to saying hello to a new chapter of my life. I’m excited about more […]

Gratitude: 2020 Reflection

What a year! I could honestly end this whole post right now with just that phrase and I’m sure you’d understand, but we made it through the year!

The Grass Is Never Greener

Honestly, this post could go hand in hand with my comparison post that you can read here, but I wanted to be more transparent. I’ve been going through some changes in my life and I want to be authentic in my experiences and my writing, which is why this topic for a post has kept […]

How Comparison Almost Stole My Joy

Did you know, years ago, what my night would consist of before sleep? I would lay in bed, turn off the light, set my alarm and then open Facebook and Instagram and scroll through, even though I did it probably 30 minutes ago. And did you know what my morning would consist of? I would […]
