Just do it.

Throughout the many decisions we have to make each and every day in life, there seems to always be plenty of hesitation. Whether that hesitation comes from fear of bad results, analyzing outcomes, not understanding processes, or other factors, we find ourselves not committing to decisions that we "should" make.   Throughout my own life,…

Dealing with things you can’t control.

As human nature provides, all of us want to have control of what goes on around us. That way, we could make everything be on our own timeline. We could make everything align with the exact idea we have on how something should work. We could make things so much easier for ourselves.   But,…

Bound and determined not to be bound.

As I continue to reflect on my goals/reminders for myself in 2020 and look at my current to-do list, things can become stressful. I don't handle stress the best, but I start to handle it better when I take a step back... So that's what I did today.   The step back I took today…

Often times, I think that life just brings learning and struggle, when in reality the times that I truly experience life bring me feelings of joy, connection, etc. I've…

Turning boredom into a blessing.

I feel that I have expressed this before, but my stance on boredom has somewhat changed. I still don't like boredom, but it provides different opportunities than I previously imagined it. Over Thanksgiving break, I found many pockets of boredom. My schedule wasn't very full and I had completed tasks that I needed to complete.…

Giving thanks(giving).

Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite days of the year (top 5, no doubt). Every time I can be with family, eat food, and watch football means that it is a good time.   As we went around the table and talked about what we are thankful for, I (unsurprisingly) got emotional. I always…
