• 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.…

  • 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┬áblog. 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…

  • A Life to Live

    Do you ever just get tired of doing stuff all the time? Well, lately I’ve been feeling this a ton. I feel like I don’t have anytime to actually sit, relax, spend good time with people I love, enjoy myself, etc. without worrying about an upcoming homework assignment or quiz, the ACT, or other things weighing heavily on my mind. I just want to get away. Don’t get me wrong… There are so many exciting events happening in my life right now–Jr/Sr Banquet, school ending (hallelujah!!), the school play of Cinderella, college visits, summer adventures, etc. But with all of this “stuff” in my life, I feel like I miss…

  • New Year’s Goals

    Yes, I said goals and not resolutions. I recently heard a Y0uTube beauty guru talk about her view on the whole “new year’s resolutions” thing, and it really stuck with me. She said that resolutions are things from the past year that you wanted to “fix” and that “new year’s goals” were way more important. Goals are things in the new year that you want to achieve, improve on, or start, rather than fix and make right. Since I loved this idea so much, I thought I would share some of my new “goals” for the new year, and maybe you can get some ideas for your own goals instead…
