I'm on a journey. A journey to discover who I really am. If that even makes any sense. The following are a few things I know for sure. I love my family. I love music. My favorite color is pink. True love is my dream. The thing I want most in life is HAPPINESS. I want to feel content with my life. I'm 26 and I'm still not sure exactly what I want to do in the future. I'm determined to live a full life. This blog will only give you a glimpse into who I am. It is a collection of a few thoughts, pictures/quotes for inspiration, and just things I find cute. So join the fun or not, it's up to you.

"I had a child when I was sixteen. I got kicked out of high school because of all the absences. My family and community pretty much wrote me off. But right away I got a job at a sporting goods store. Soon I was able to get a job as a receptionist at a tax company, and they gave me enough responsibilities that I learned how to do taxes. Eventually I learned enough to become an associate. Then I got offered a job at a smaller company, and even though it was a pay cut, they offered me responsibility over all the books— accounts payable, accounts receivable, everything. It was less money but I wanted that experience so I took the risk. And I’m so glad I did, because six months later, the controller of that company left and I was given that position. They told me they couldn’t officially call me the controller because I didn’t have a college degree. So I finished my degree 5 months ago— just to make it official! So after having a child at sixteen, I made it all the way to controller of a company, without even having a college degree. Can you believe that? Honestly, I’ve been waiting to tell that story so long that I told it to a customer service representative on the phone last week. She was nice about it and pretended to care."

The internet is amazing. Endless opportunities, inspiration and information. But it can also be heavy for the mind. You battle not comparing your life to the seemingly amazing lives of others (don’t believe the hype), what people are buying, wearing, their apartments, their body, where they’re going and with whom, trying not to see what your Bf/Gf/exes are liking or who they’re following, your cousin or coworker’s depressing status updates on FB all day, feeling guilty for laughing way too hard at that meme you know was mean as hell 😩, etc.
When was the last time you layed out, took your shoes off and got some sun and fresh air? Just you and your thoughts? Just you and your friends or loved ones? We openly discuss beauty regimens, workouts and smoothies, but what good will those do if your mental health isn’t shown undivided attention too? Don’t forget to disconnect from the lives of others, sometimes. Don’t forget you’re here for a reason, too. Have you started the journey into you, to find out what that is? Don’t forget about YOU. The internet will always be there.
Have a beautiful weekend ❤
