Times are Changing

Happy Friyay everyone and of course happy July! I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July, I spent mine enjoying time with family and hanging by the pool. I cannot believe we are already half way through 2018… where has this year gone so far? You get yourself into such a routine that the days just pass one after another and then the next thing you, we’re half way through the year. Even though this year has been flying past, it has brought some pretty awesome things into my life: I
launched my blog, I accepted an internship with Walt Disney World, I’ve reconnected with my faith, and most importantly I have begun to love myself again. While all of these things are some of the greatest blessings, I have realized that I lost sight of the things I wanted to accomplish in 2018. I think many of us find ourselves in this situation, we set these huge goals/expectations for our self at the beginning of the year but once we run into our first obstacle on the road to achieving them we give up or try less. I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t even remember what my 2018 goals were until I sat down and began thinking about them at the beginning of this week. Do you remember your goals? If you do, have you achieved them or are you still working at them? If not, it’s okay because odds are most of us are probably in the same situation.

Confidently Being Weird

Happy Friyay friends!! It was a gloomy day here in Ohio, but that’s okay because a little rain can be good for everyone! I like gloomy days like today because it’s the best weather to relax and recollect your thoughts, especially at the end of a week! After getting back into my usual routine from the holiday weekend and talking to my friends and family, I have been feeling a lot more confident about things in my life. Confidence is something I think everyone struggles with, whether they like to admit it or not. I know confidence does not come easy to some people and I know some people are just gifted with it. To those people who are struggling with confidence, that’s okay because you are not alone. I have struggled for years with it, and I will probably struggle with it for years to come and that’s okay. BUT, there are some things I came to realize after this week.

Going with the Flow

Happy Tuesday friends! I hope the start of your summer has been relaxing, adventures or however you imagined your summer to be. Mine has been very on the down-low. Since I moved home from school I ended my internship, quit my part-time job, and distanced from my social life. Now don’t get me wrong, I miss my friends very dearly and I most definitely missed staying connected with people over social media, but it was a nice break to think about what I want in life as, yet another birthday is approaching. Over the last few months I have been facing the same questions repeatedly, “How does a girl like you not have a boyfriend,” “When are you going to get in a relationship,”  “How does it feel that your friends are getting engaged,” and “When do you plan on getting engaged.” This honestly might just be a girl issue so guys I’m sorry if this doesn’t pertain to you, but to the girls and/or guys out there getting these questions don’t panic because you’re not alone.

Go for the Extra Scoop

Happy Friyay everyone! I hope the last month or so has been going great and you’ve been kicking butt with whatever you’re doing. I’ve been crazy busy with the semester ending, enjoying the last bit of time I had with my friends who were graduating, and work since we are getting into our busy
season. On top of all those crazy things, I’ve also found myself living to please others. I didn’t realize how caught up I was in making sure everyone around me was taken care. Yesterday I was sharing some of the things I want to do in the future, and not until I was typing them did I realize that because I’ve been so focused on everyone around me I’ve lost sight of what I want for myself.
