• Each Day A New

    If you’re like me, you often get wound up in mistakes, worries, struggles, etc. — past, present, and even future. This often weighs me down and stresses me out more than I should. Everyday has its own struggles and things to worry about. It’s often hard not to get caught up in past mistakes and worry about being “good enough” or even being overbearing to people. However, with all of the struggle and worry and problems the world offers, we have hope and faith in Jesus Christ that he will guide us through. God has granted us with the gift of beginning each day as a new day. We lay our…

  • Good Enough // Revisited

    One of my latest posts was titled Good Enough. To that, I received so many amazing and encouraging comments and thoughts — more than I could’ve expected. I first wanted to thank each of you who read that post and responded to it. It reassured to me that I have a life full of support from people that love me. As you know, I was timid/afraid to share with you my feelings. The response was uplifting, and for that, I am beyond thankful. I wanted to revisit that subject as it has been several months. Overall, I would say I am in a much better place than I was then.…

  • Good Enough

    If I’m honest, I’m nervous to post this — I actually wrote it about a 3 weeks ago haven’t felt the courage until now. It’s kind of a touchy and serious subject for me… I want my blog to be encouraging and uplifting, and I want you to get to know me through what I write. I want to be an open book. I want to be honest with you. I want to inspire you because we are on this journey together. In order to get to know me, I think you should know something that I have struggled with lately that I am absolutely positive many of you struggle with…

  • Tip Tuesday // Treat Yourself

    Often, we get caught up in the anxiety and stress of our daily lives. I like to take time and special moments to treat myself to a few of my favorite things. For me, these include a nice bath with deliciously lovely bath bombs & bubbles, a quick makeup shopping trip, an ice cream treat, browsing Pinterest & a few of my favorite blogs, or watching my favorite Netflix shows — these include Supernatural and Reign, which I recommend to all! Believe me. It’s perfectly fine and wonderful to take time to yourself. Many people of all ages in this day & age tend to be busy-bodies, never giving themselves a…

  • Wisdom Wednesday

    Each second is special and yours to take. Value every moment and make the best of it. You’ll never encounter the exact same one twice. Embrace every bit — the easy, the hard, the good, the bad, the somewhere in between. Make the memories mean something important. Enjoy it all.   xoxo, KB

  • Motivation Monday

    Proverbs 17:22 — “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” If you’re like me, you’re needing this “good medicine” right now. Many of us are… I encourage you to focus on being a positive light this week in someone’s often dark world. Whether it be a simple smile, hug, or compliment, random act of kindness, or even a much needed listen-sesh with a friend, be open to spread positivity. You never know what someone is hiding behind their emotional curtain. Be the “good medicine” to someone today and this week…   xoxo, KB  

  • A Little Something New

    I want my blog to be a positive place full of things I love, things to inspire, and things to learn about. To further bring this into practice, I decided that I to change things up a bit and add a little something new… I will begin posting weekly (or daily — haven’t decided yet) little tidbits for the day. This will include things like Bible verses, inspirational quotes, positive thoughts, beauty/fashion tips, & other randomness. Like what is happening currently, the occasional long post will also be up whenever I feel motivated or have something on my mind. Just wanted to keep you all informed on what is to…

  • Finding Mr. Right

    I recently found a blog post through FaceBook titled “An open letter from Mr. Right.” It really opened my eyes, ears, and heart to who I often think my “Mr. Right” could be and who I should think he could be. It starts off basically telling me that he is “no fairytale hunk” (to quote it directly), which is, honestly, what I’ve pictured my whole life. I would dream of being swept off my feet and drowning in romantic moments. I dreamed of falling hopelessly in love with my Mr. Right/Prince Charming. I wanted my love story to be as perfect as it is in every Disney movie. No matter how much I dream and…

  • Back to School /// Senior Year

    It’s that time again that many dread and many enjoy… …Back to school season is upon us! I actually cannot believe how fast this summer has flown by. Part of me wishes it was still here, yet a lot of me is excited for my last year in high school (where has the time gone?) Going back to school can be scary no matter what age you are, so I wanted to give you a bit of advice/encouragement to give you a boost to be excited to get back into routine. Be Organized Your agenda will become your best friend. Be Productive Procrastination, however, is never going to be your best friend.…

  • Where Have I Been??

    As you may have noticed, there has been a period of about 2 months in which I have been MIA on this blog. It was essentially both an intentional and unintentional break, but it was honestly much needed. A lot of stuff has happened within the past 2 months… I finished my Junior year of high school (hardest year of my life). Summer began, which means youth group events began to pick up the pace and friends want to hang out all the time (which is not at all a bad thing). I also began my nannying job to precious 9 year old twin girls. That definitely consumes most of my…
