Hey Guys

It’s been awhile. But I have learned some things I wanted to share with you!

  • If you don’t feel like wearing makeup, don’t. You look amazing!
  • If your body doesn’t want to workout and needs rest. Give it rest. Your body loves you and is telling you thing.
  • Drink water. Water is awesome.
  • It’s ok to vent sometimes.
  • Always love. Love isn’t bad. Just know what it is.
  • There might people who dislike you, but only worry about the people who love you.

Never Grow Up

That has been my motto for years and years.

I don’t mean we should let go of responsibilities. That’s not what I mean at all. I do mean that we shouldn’t forget that life is more than what we think it is. Life isn’t just about going to work and paying bills. Well, you can even make the dullest of things….an adventure.

My friends like to laugh at me because I always want to turn things into…adventures.

Recently, I got out of a very long situation. I cried with happiness because on that night I met new friends and we went climbing and laughed. I called my mother and told her that I played that day and she said “You need to play! You are my little Tinkerbell. My free spirit!” It was my first night of my new story.

Nov 9th prompt

What is the first thing you do every single day (I mean, after you hit the snooze button)? When did that step in your routine begin?

So I am not really sure what to write about lately. So many things in my head that it’s hard to find where to start! So I am looking to a list of writing prompts.

Well, the fist thing I do in the morning is check my facebook messages and Instagram. I love seeing encouraging things from friends first thing in the morning! It is what makes the not so good days easier. After that, I climb out of my bunk and get dressed and do that whole thing. I am an early bird and eat/read/check email before heading to work.

Honestly, my sleep routine has been kind of off because of anxiety. Working on that!

A couple weeks ago a friend of mine said I attract and am attracted to those with strong personalities. This goes without saying since I feel like I have strong opinions on things myself. If I believe something I tend to stand by it. I let go of this part of me in a previous relationship, but am happy to return. The interaction I have with people now days are usually positive ones. My only hang up now days is that I could get emotionally attached to people, mostly if I know they are only in my life for a little bit. That is one thing I need to learn is to give people space. It’s not like I won’t see my friends again in the future, right? I tend to have a lot of mood swings lately. Very up and down. Mostly up. But at night it’s a little bit hard since I am alone and have a lot more time for my head to go into space. I try to vent or talk to people to help sort my brain out. I just don’t want to continue into any unhealthy habits. I try to reflect on positive things as much as possible. I purposely add positive Instagram accounts to keep me going. So with that said, I think I will be ok 🙂

Friends & Hills

Since about April I have been having these weird dreams of all my friends running and jumping through hills. It’s been a weird few months. It’s almost everyone who I love is on the same wavelength as far as hopes and dreams go. I was talking to a friend a few weeks ago about how a lot of people in there 20s and 30s are getting back to nature. Despite being on our iphones we are capturing beauty and our little adventures. For years I expressed wanting to live on a farm one day and travel around to see the things I haven’t seen before. I am only 32 and want to see ALL the things. I have met many people who are doing this and/or dream of doing this. It boggles my mind on how this is happening and where all these folks are coming from.

I am not a city person by all means and I am slowly going back to my “roots”. I grew up with a grandpa who would wake up early and hitch a ride to the woods. This man I lost 6 years ago and miss him everyday. He told me that he spoke to God in the woods. I honestly believe that is the time that I feel energy the most. Before my grandpa had grandsons he would teach me things like fishing and wood carving. Basically, using your hands to craft things. In my job I kinda use this skill when things break…I fix them.

Hope Is Hope

Sometimes it takes months to remember your true self. 3 months later I am glad to see me again. Healing takes time but I feel stronger everyday. Thank you friends. Sorry if I can be a little too much sometimes. It’s part of the process. Learning to be independent and finding my true self. I am not as horrible as I was brain washed to believe. I am a compassionate person who might just love too much. It’s ok though. It’s not bad to feel. It’s ok to cry. It’s ok to imagine. It’s ok not to grow up totally. Always dream kids.

Your Story Is Your Story- What will you write next? 

This couldn’t be more true.


I used to feel ashamed of my story. I felt like other people’s past chapters were titled things like, “Skipping Through Fields with a Happy Golden Retriever” and my chapters were like, “Crawling Through Darkness with a Bunch of Scary Monsters..” I also kept trying to find someone ELSE to write my story for me. I let other people write weird things that made me sad. I let people write things that didn’t resonate with me… Then one day- I took my pencil back. (Also, I made friends with those monsters and now we are skipping through fields together and we are fabulous!)

I wrote the words below to myself to feel better about my story and what I will write next. What do you want to write next in the story of your life?

Your life is a book

and it’s time for you

to take your pencil…

Happy Monday!

Hi friends!

So my journey started 2 months ago today. It’s been crazy, bumpy, and actually fun at some points. Friends have come and gone. True ones stay, even if not physically in the same state as you. I have a lot of support. There is a difference between being alone and lonely. My aunt told me that. I don’t feel so lonely.

Anyway, going on a slow digital detox. One thing at a time! I turned off my Instagram notifications and facebook ones too. So I might be slower to response. That’s ok! We shouldn’t all be in a rush anyway, right?
