We all want to feel like we have a purpose. A reason to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Something to work toward. Something to give our actions meaning.

Here's the thing: Purpose comes in small doses.


I worry that everyone I meet will only be temporary.
That they're all people I will cross paths with
but who will never stick around for good.
I worry it's temporary, so I act like it is,
and in doing so, I make it true.
Did we drift? Or did I push?

I Don't Have Marble Countertops (And Other Blogging Tricks)

Blogging takes more work than some people realize. Whether you're running a blog in addition to a full-time job like I am, or your blog is your full-time job, it requires a good amount of time and effort. Coming up with ideas, writing them out, planning, scheduling, taking (relevant) pictures, promoting each post so it can actually reach an audience.

While I don't believe there's any "right" or "wrong" way to blog, I did want to give a little peek behind the scenes on how an ordinary girl who works full-time also manages to regularly blog, along with a few tips.

We'll start with the oldest trick in the book...

On Loving Yourself (Properly)

We've all heard about the importance of self-love and taking care of yourself both physically and mentally, but I came across something the other day that put it in a whole new light.

February Wrap-Up

Now that I sit down and think about, February was a great month. Work wasn't stressful or overwhelming, I stayed on top of my to-do list, and my blog posts were finished in time to be scheduled out a couple of days in advance. It was calm.

February was also the start of two good things. One: I've started a new position at my work. I'll be in training over the next couple of weeks and am really looking forward to the change. Two: My boyfriend and I have officially started looking at apartments.

Things are happening!! And it feels good.
