• Stop F*cking Settling

    Hi, I’m Taylor, and I like the word fuck. Blame my dad, he was in the Navy and I can confirm the saying “curse like a sailor” is true! I really debated on using such a harsh word in the title of this post, but that’s who I am, so why not? Staying true to this topic, it just felt right to speak my mind and be bold. Rest assured, while my mouth may not always be the softest, my heart is in the right place. So buckle up and let’s dive into the act of NOT F*CKING SETTLING! To put it lightly, settling will always leave the heart unsettled.…

  • Dear Future, I’m Ready

    “Your future needs you, your past doesn’t.” I wasn’t sure what to write this week’s post about, so I went to my trusty Pinterest search and looked up some inspiration. I scrolled and scrolled, closed my eyes, chose a quote and that was that! I honestly love this topic because it’s so simple yet so difficult for us to do. Back in 2019 I wrote about inhaling the future and exhaling the past, so I’ll touch on that a bit here too. Feel free to read it once you’re finished with this one–they’ll tie in quite nicely! Every single day we get a brand new opportunity to be different; to…

  • Change Starts Within

    “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” They say the secret to your success is found in your daily routine. Making small changes will result in big differences! You just have to decide that you’re tired of the old and ready for the new. Much like the resolutions we discussed last week, making actual change in yourself and your life won’t be EASY. It’ll take effort, dedication, and strength! But you have to realize that you deserve the positive outcome ahead; and remember, not all positive change will feel positive in the beginning. Usually the first step is…

  • Authentic Over Perfection

    How easy is it to find ourselves caught up in perfection these days? Especially with our CONSTANT access to celebrities, social media, and the internet–it’s almost 2nd nature to compare ourselves and aspire to have a “perfect life”. (Since it obviously seems like everyone else already has their shit together…) But come on. Is that reality?   Believe it or not, behind each Instagram post, or trendy pin on Pinterest, every single one of us has some sort of trial in life. We’re honestly setting ourselves up for disappointment by assuming we are the only ones struggling. It breaks my heart, because it seems to be engraved in our minds…

  • Growing and Changing

    “Remember, growing might feel like breaking at first.”   I have this notebook page filled with new ideas on what to write next…but when I stumbled upon this quote earlier, it kind of hit me like a ton of bricks and I knew I had to run with it. Ever have those moments where you feel like the universe is SCREAMING at you!? That’s what this was.   I feel like a broken ass record sometimes when I sit here to talk to you, and all I can do is muster up the same words about the same old feelings… Being lost, and scared, and overwhelmed. I don’t know about…
