Whoa. You guys, I'm back. It's been awhile, I know...and you know what? I don't have any kind of excuse to feed you. Life has been crazy. In all the best ways, of course. Where do I even begin?Read More
Wow. This week. Where do we even begin? Sometimes it's better to just let it all sink in without feeling the need to react. I'll be honest with you all.Read More
Every time I do one of these posts, I always mention how crazy the previous week was - you know the drill. From meetings to work to everything in between that fill up your calendar. Let's take a step back, shall we? Sometimes it's a little too easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the week, that you don't stop and look around you and appreciate the little moments that make you smile. I'm guilty.Read More
Spring has sorta, kinda sprung and in the groundhogs defense, I’m more than ready for its appearance. Cue: All the blooms and pastels and floral prints galore.Read More
I recently saw a quote on Instagram that pulled at my heartstrings. “Live passionately” was scribbled in delicate cursive. Live passionately. It struck me at a time where I must say I needed to see it the most.Read More
Being a happy person isn’t a personality trait; it’s a lifestyle. Call me crazy, but being able to put on a happy face when the going gets tough is quite the feat, whether you’re in the office or out.Read More
Life is full of chaos; it’s a little inevitable. The times when it seems like it’s moving full throttle ahead and you’re barely hanging onto the reigns, take time to put your life into perspective.Read More
As I turned my car on, those were the first lyrics I heard on the radio. It got me thinking, those few words, lined up in one sentence, in one song had it completely right. It really couldn't have said it better.
Why waste your breath on the things, people or emotions in life that just don’t matter? As silly as it sounds, this song and these lyrics couldn’t have played at a better time for me. It’s easy to get overwhelmed with life, want everything to play out perfectly, want to accomplish all your goals at once or even want everyone to like you. It's easy to get caught up in your own problems, but in the end it doesn't mean anything.
For me, I know I have to remind myself to take a step back and not let my emotions get the best of me. What stresses me out now; won’t stress me out a week from now. The people that don’t like me; won’t matter a few months down the road.
Getting in a silly argument with someone I love; will eventually be solved. That’s the thing, eventually all of it will go away – all the complications, the arguments - soon they'll all be forgotten.
At 13, my mom passed away. I never knew something positive could come out of a situation that was so devastating. I learned at a young age that life is truly too short to care about the trivial things - the people or the things that don't matter. Or the people that don't care for you.
Remember to laugh with your friends, to spend time with the ones that matter and most of all, tell them that you love them.
That is what's important in life.
