Complicated

Complicated

I often think to myself, “Why must we make things so complicated?”

While yes, this is the case when it comes to business and planning and execution more often than not, we also do the same thing when it comes to our personal lives. We make everything so damn complicated.

Top Lessons I Learned in 2017

Top Lessons I Learned in 2017

For those of you who have been following me for a while… You know that I’m constantly doing things. I made the commitment a couple years ago to dive head first into this entrepreneurial world. It’s been enlightening. It’s been scary. It’s been the textbook definition of a roller coaster ride. I am so grateful in many ways, and I’m so grateful for all of you. You’ve watched me continue to expand this journey. It just means the freaking world to me. It’s honestly an honor to have you in my space, and in my world.

There’s a lot of lessons from 2017… I’m a firm believer that if you’re not feeling uncomfortable, and making mistakes, and learning lessons then you’re not growing. That means you’re standing still. That’s not a good place to be, right? At least not for me. I’ll go crazy.

Fuck Standing Still

Fuck Standing Still

I’m going to be 30 in a few days. 30 years old, it’s hard to believe. It feels like these past 10 years have flown by. To be honest with you, I’ve always felt older. I’ve always been one of the youngest people in every room most of my adult life. So NO, I’m not freaking out about hitting the big 3-0 like a lot of people keep asking. I’m actually excited.

A Real Date

A Real Date

I was 24 before I was ever taken on a real date.

Like the guy had it planned, picked me up at my house and took me out sort of date.

Yep, 24.

I had my first “official” boyfriend when I was 16, so that’s almost 10 years before meeting someone who was actually a gentleman and planned a date. Continue reading “A Real Date”

Love You Forever

Love You Forever

Basically, when I love you once, a part of me loves you forever. It’s like a piece of my heart has a string that’s attached to yours. No matter where you go or what you’re doing, it’s attached.

I used to think this was weird or wrong, like I was “hanging on to things” or focusing on “what might have been” but what I’ve grown to understand is it is the exact opposite. Continue reading “Love You Forever”

Story Time

Story Time

He cornered me in the shop. Everyone else was going inside to go to bed; the party was over, it was after 2 am. He had barely spoken two words to me the whole night, a man that I used to believe wholeheartedly was mine forever. And he cornered me saying, “I need you to answer these questions.”

I was taken back by this. I remember thinking… REALLY? We’ve been going back and forth about this for 7 years now, and we need to talk about it AGAIN? You still have questions?! Continue reading “Story Time”

We All Need A Reminder

We All Need A Reminder

Sometimes you just have to remind yourself that it’s all going to be worth it.

Even if no one else believes it.
Even if you feel like you’re in it alone.

Remind yourself it is YOUR life. YOUR dream.

No one else will ever build it for you.

And the quicker you realize that you have to count on only yourself to build this, the quicker you’ll start making progress. Continue reading “We All Need A Reminder”
